The Gnosis of Bill Donahue

 

For those interested in alternative Christianity, the language of modern gnosis, here is the youtube channel for Bill Donahue: (there are hundreds of lectures here all under 40 minutes or so) https://www.youtube.com/user/bdona4556/videos His website is here: http://www.hiddenmeanings.com/

Bill has a great grasp for turning the scriptures of orthodoxy into modern science. He reads with the spiritual eye and he reads between the lines. This different way to read the bible happened to me quite by accident in 1988 while bedridden waiting for the first of several spine surgeries (of course nothing actually happens by accident). I read the bible from cover to cover in 3 months, and in no way did a literal translation ever enter my mind. Even the boring instructions for building the temple section made sense to me, as it resembled the human psyche perfectly. The ”holy of holies” being the seat of Consciousness, the Ark was the body, the escape from Egypt was the escape from the Matrix. This was my first spiritual experience. It was just amazing!

I’ve never heard Bill call himself a Gnostic, though he has lectured on the subject. If he taught 300 years ago he would certainly have been burned at the stake as a Gnostic Heretic. He teaches that Jesus is the sun, and then so much more. His mysticism is inspiring. “God is Light, therefore God is a photon,” teaches Bill. He always talks a lot about the Pineal Gland and meditation and uses bible references to prove his point. He has no dogmatic belief system (beliefs are knowledge gaps filled in with false beliefs, ignorance is a better word) and he’s constantly attacked by mainstream Christians who paradoxically believe only their belief (ignorance) represents the Love of the One True God. Makes me wonder…

Gnosis is Experiential Intuitive Knowledge. True gnosis cannot be learned through study but only through experiencing its reality. This is the reason gnostic texts say,

”Don’t seek the Law [“the Law” refers to the Divine Reality (Consciousness) which is behind the illusions of mortal existence] only in your scriptures, for the Law is Life, whereas, the scriptures are only words. Holy Wisdom (gnosis), you give us the understanding that unfolds continuously and endlessly, yet is not acquired through the study of the scriptures, but through the study of Light.”

How can our minds be transformed so that we perceive the Reality in which we exist instead of the illusions of mortal existence? There is no simple answer to this question. Briefly stated it is ignorance that keeps us in bondage to the archons [psychological forces] of mortal existence. Gnosis dispels ignorance, freeing us to undertake and complete the process of deification, the development of our ultimate potential. With this understanding I take the liberty of calling Bill a modern Gnostic, though some of his fans may prefer mystic and he may prefer neither. (Gnostic and mystic implies the same thing to me, as does the ‘not yet mainstream’ science that teaches that Consciousness is the only reality). Gnosis is the power of salvation. Our need is to be saved from the ignorance that traps us in lives based on the illusion of separateness. In their unnatural state (which appears to be the natural state), mortals perceive themselves as separated from the Divine and from the world around them. As long as they base their decisions on this illusion of separateness, they will act contrary to the Divine Nature. This type of inappropriate conduct ties them to darkness, and the nature of darkness is destruction. To be saved from the powers of darkness, we must become enlightened to perceive the Reality of which we (and everything else) are manifestations so that we can exist in that Reality. Whatever helps bring about this Awakening is welcome into my reality, and hopefully yours, as that’s the only purpose of this blog. I would love to have everyone question the false religions that have caused so much suffering in the world. It’s the misunderstanding of religion which leads to the belief that one not only ‘knows’ something, but they ‘know’ the only truth in the universe, which makes them God’s chosen and the only ones worthy of living. It is that separation of humanity which I despise in mainstream religion/politics, and wordly way of ”living”. I’ve been leaving a lot of what in the beginning of this blog was a lot of Gnosticism, mythicism and mysticism behind as I’ve been reading a lot of new, or suppressed, science and Theory’s Of Everything (I.E. Tom Campbell) coming from still hidden/suppressed quantum physics. These scientists say the same things the oldest ancient Vedic  scriptures say, except for changing the word God to Consciousness and demiurge/devil to ego. God almost implies a separate Being, which is just not possible. The All is in the All, therefore I Am.

Gnosis (Greek for knowledge) is the means of escape from the darkness of the mortal condition. Ignorance of Reality keeps us trapped in this state; knowledge of Reality shows us the means of escape from its limitations. Knowledge removes the blocks in our minds that prevent us from viewing this Reality so we can develop our divine potential to begin living our lives on a plane above the illusions of mortal existence, above the fear based ego illusions. Remove the fear and ignorance and only Love remains, which is the natural state of Being that we are evolving into (or returning to).

Think about this, even bacteria seem to be smarter than humans right now. Bacteria survive by working together as a community. When we finally have as much Consciousness as bacteria, we too will thrive as a community working together, rather than competing with each other. (Sarcasm intended)….lmao

DISCLAIMER: What I’ve written under Bill’s video and youtube channel is not meant to represent Bill Donahue’s philosophy. He does that quite perfectly on his own. I hope you’ll lend him an ear, you will perhaps be as amazed as myself after listening to him. :)

Heresy is really so much fun!!! Ha!

  1. So fascinating to hear your experience of “this different way to read the Bible” – especially considering some of your other posts (diatribes?? haha) pertaining to the history of Christianity. I have never really connected with Christianity in any way, but your experience reminds me of an old yogi I know, also beyond religion….We spoke of the Bible once and he said “The Bible is Deep – if you know how to Read it.”

    Thanks for this and all your posts – I really enjoy reading them.

    • Very true, hidden meanings that mainstream religion kept suppressed for 2,000 years and still condemns it. Without these hidden esoteric gems the bible would be a really bad children’s book with no spiritual meaning whatsoever. Some of the old Gnostics had it right, and they paid with their lives. Thanks for reading Amanda. :)

  2. I LOVE his video and studying with him! I never did fit in the Church’s and felt uncomfortable. I am so glad I found Bill because what he teaches makes sense to me. Also his Emerald Tablets are just awesome!!

    • Please feel free to email me at davidholmes54@gmail.com. Sadly my friends and family on facebook prefer nonsensical cat pictures and meaningless drivel. That’s partly what inspired this blog. Rather than alienate family I just use facebook to keep in touch with them. Did you know Tom and Bill are FB friends? I read and comment on other meaningful and inspired fb authors facebooks. If you have a follow button I’ll follow you. Maybe someday I’ll venture back into that territory on FB and we’ll hook up. Or I’ll make a new page for like minded people. I need to be with like minded people in such a shallow world as ours. Thanks for the read and the comment and keep seeking Truth!!! It’s hidden in plain sight for those who really look for it ;) (I’m heading for your FB page now) ~ David Holmes

  3. Bill is an amazing man who is able to break down in plain simple terms the things that mainstream religions have corrupted and mis-taught for thousands of years. He is the only person I know of that gets to the real truth and meaning of the ancient texts (specifically the Bible) without the dogma, tradition and ritual. Bill wipes away the layers of “religion” with logic and an extensive knowledge of myth, mysticism, science and history. His extensive library of videos should be mandatory viewing to everyone.
