(?-67 AD) Former persecutor of the Gnostics who later became one of their greatest representatives, and author of fourteen books in the Christian New Testament.
"Paul of Tarsus, the furious persecutor of Gnostics, received the sacred Initiation after the event which occurred to him on his way to Damascus. He left the custom of persecuting the Christians, and he adopted the Gnostic customs. So, he became a Gnostic Christian prophet." - Samael Aun Weor, The Revolution of Beelzebub
"Wherever we direct our attention, we spend creative energy. We can save creative energy if we divide attention, if we do not become identified with things, people, and ideas. When we become identified with things, people, and ideas, we then forget our Self and lose creative energy in the most pitiful way. It is essential to know that we need to save creative energy in order to awaken the consciousness, and that the creative energy is the living potential, it is the vehicle of the consciousness, it is the instrument in order to awaken the consciousness."
