GNOSIS is Wisdom. GNOSIS is Love. GNOSIS is Self-Sacrifice. Who is not capable to sacrifice oneself for ones neighbours, is not worthy of living. Who is not capable of cooperating for others’ sake, will fall in the abyss of perdition. It is urgent to end with the EGOCENTRISM and to cultivate CHRISTO-CENTRISM. The hour of the Social Christ arrived.

chapter "The Universal Charity"
The Society is the Individual.
The World is the Individual.
If the Individual changes fundamentally,
the world will change fundamentally."
Samael Aun Weor. The Social Christ,
chapter "The Individual and the Society"
The Synthesis of the Gnostic Teaching is in the Three Factors of the Revolution of Consciousness:
It is necessary to love our neighbours, but love needs to be demonstrated with concrete, clear and definitive facts. It is not enough to say that we love our neighbours, no; we need to demonstrate it with facts, we must be willing to climb on the altar of the supreme sacrifice for humanity, we must rise the lamp of wisdom to light the path of others, we must be willing to give the last drop of blood for our fellow men, with true, disinterested and pure love.
If we will work only with the first and the second factor (Birth and Death) but we will not love our neighbours, we will not do anything to bring the light of Knowledge to other people, nations and languages, we will fall in a very refined spiritual selfishness that will block us any internal progress.
If we concern ourselves only and nothing else, forgetting about the many millions of beings who populate the face of the earth, unquestionably that we are imprisoning ourselves in our own selfishness. Thus, the I of Selfishness will not allow our Illumination.
Selfishness can present itself in extremely refined ways and must be eliminated. The more egoism we have in ourselves, the illumination will not be possible.
A background analysis leads us to the following conclusion: Charity must be Conscious. Love is Law, but Conscious Love. The rulers of the earth constantly affirm: "I give away much, I am very charitable...". When any powerful one spends his few pennies in a work of public aid, proclaims it in the four winds through the media and the radio, and everybody says "This is a good man...". No doubt, beyond so much public outcry and so much propaganda, the streets of the cities are full of people that lost their jobs, of mothers that give themselves for a loaf of bread, to support her hungry sons; of crippled that beg or who try to work selling the lottery, newspapers etc. for not starving; of family fathers who look for work etc. etc. etc. And unquestionably that charity is spoken of. This is the sad irony of the world: Where is the charity?
There is a fatal tendency in the human beings to always consider themselves superior in front of life’s unfortunates. The banker, the merchant, the elegant woman, cross the street arogantly, proudly, and when they encounter in their way a pariah of life, do not look at him and if they do it is to throw him a coin, with pride. These proud ones do not want to realise that the beggar, the crippled, the jobless man, the hungry mother are no less than nothing. That they are equal to us. That they are our BROTHERS.
This family selfishness, this lack of love for our kind, this family isolation politics is absurd a hundred percent, because it converts into a factor of deterioration and constant social degeneration.
The progress, the true revolution, are possible only by breaking these false chinese walls that separate us, that isolate us from the rest of the world.
We are all one big family, and it is absurd to torture each other, to consider family only the few people that live with us etc.
The selfish family exclusivism owns the social progress, divides human beings, creates wars, priviledged castes, economical problems etc.
In Nirvana that meaning of family, tribe, clan, has disappeared completely because all beings consider themselves as members of one great family. Variety is Unity.
