Hello Everyone, we’ve been talking in the past weeks about the idea of “gnosis”. “Gnosis” is a Greek word that means “knowing”, and the idea of “gnosis” is that coming to know ourselves deeply is the path that leads to a real and lasting happiness that is independent from the temporary and cyclical ups and downs of life.
The flip side of this idea is that not knowing ourselves is ultimately the real reason for our unhappiness, difficulties and suffering, as individuals and as a humanity.
So then, in order to know ourselves we need self-study. And to study ourselves, we need some clear and simple starting points.
Meetup #5 is called “The Consciousness, the Personality, and the Ego”. Here we look at the simple and clear differences between these three aspects that make each one of us what we are, and the role that each one plays in determining our state of happiness.
We will also have a simple practice of meditation.
We hope to see you this Wednesday!
