An Act of Creation
Who dares to claim the path to Gnosis was the most prized of our Lord’s secret teaching
as alternate realms shall quickly infer an age-old sphere of life-after-death preaching.
A few crumbling codices found at Nag Hammidi once imparted knowledge to a few good apostles;
now they find voice two thousand years after being supplanted by four canonical Gospels.
How might one reconcile the jealous and angry two-faced God of the Old Jewish Testament
to fit smugly into the mould of the all-loving One posed by Christ for all the world’s betterment?
Escape to a far dimension of the opaque universe, inject it with vibrations of light and song, a
nd let Pistis-Sophia experience Creation by carbon copying its genetic sequence all wrong.
This Yaldabaoth, a pale and flawed reflection of the flower-of-life’s geometrically-sound plan,
brags of virility, then breeds she-devils to birth archons and a gullible creature called Man.
Unable to walk or talk the primeval He is an aberrant echo of the divine act unfurled;
Zephyrus then blows Sophia’s light into our lives but her spark falls inert in the material world.
The earth, deceptive like her mortal master hid her scales with quicksand and tree sap.
When the goddess plunged down to rescue the race her gold-tinted cloth became caught in this trap.
All God’s sons were then saved upon a sexless union which carried along the whole Christian fate,
stripping the gallant knight of one-dimensional armour and the weight of his ignorant state.
Only then did Sophia make her Second Coming hissing like a serpent to hinder evil volition,
by urging Adam’s firstborn to bite the apple and outwit Yahweh through sheer intuition.
