Notable quote(s)[edit]

...To really to live in harmony with our true divine essence... with the divine spark shining bright from the innermost depth of our individual who does not know [Know...Gnosis] and lives his or her life in tune with the quintessential Cosmic Laws will never achieve oneness with our true Self/Source... but will merely exist in an imbalanced, unnatural and unhealthy mode so, ignorance is not bliss... ignorance is death...
