Andrewmarkmusic: decoding the headlines
and official narratives in short, terse pithy aphorisms!

Linked HERE a paper from the UofH analyzing these two sects of spirituality.

I’m writing this for a few different reasons. One is the notion that reason emerged with the enlightenment in the west via an evolution of consciousness–it’s a progressive stage theory within spiritual studies. I just don’t find it compelling. The Samkhya schools are proof that reason and logic were fully developed in antiquity and these were some of the finest thinkers to ever grace the earth. The best I can give the western enlightenment is it correctly wanted to move culture away from theocracy to secularism–but, even that failed as there were rotten spiritual apples who controlled the flow of culture and who practiced duplicity on the societal level. 

The Enlightenment was many things but one of the primary drivers was what motivated the moneylenders who wanted to destroy Christendom and its injunctions against usury. Needless to say, they were ruthlessly successful and we are all now pimps and whores for their economic machinations. Don’t dismiss, also, that central banking and the way it creates currency is the largest theft in the known universe–no small petty crime like Wall St.

The second reason is the moneylenders and their alphabet agents within the spiritual domain have waged a steady war and blackwashed the idea of duality–they make reality out to be a swear word! Samkhya is thoroughly dualistic on two fronts: the distinction between cosmic mind and matter and the distinction and separation between the human spirit and transcendent spirit–they are of the same essence but not of the same order. Linked HERE a paper on Dvaita Vedanta which also argues these same points. 

The fact is that the material universe is real and the best of modern science testifies to this! And anyone with an ounce of common sense understands that animals that shit, piss, and can reflect on existential questions are not God in any definitive sense in the way non-duality teaches. Now, as a Christian Gnostic, I don’t share the same views as Samkyha or Dvaita, but I can tell when something is right and I can tell when something is dreadfully off. As a Christian Gnostic, I don’t share the Vedas view on Immanence as this place is a very real deceptive prison and our spirit is deceitfully trapped here by wicked archons. 

I guess as an aside I should touch on the Gunas: sattvic, rajas, and tamas, and pneuma, psychic, and hyle of the gnostics. I tend to think they are real, fair, and accurate, but I have a real problem with reincarnation as an excuse to order any society. It is sensible though to think that purity (sattva) is a condition needed for gnosis or jnana and is a doorway or path needed to access higher dimensions of spirit.
