“Let us distinguish between the mind, and a mind of Light. Let us distinguish between subjective reasoning, and objective reasoning. Objective reasoning is the reasoning of the Being. Subjective reasoning is the reasoning of the animal ego. Objective reasoning is possessed only by the one who has passed through the Buddhist Annihilation [the complete elimination of the ego: pride, lust, envy, avarice, laziness, jealousy, anger, etc]... The objective reasoning is the mind of light, it is real intelligence, exalted thoughts.” - Samael Aun Weor, The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia Unveiled

"Ladies and gentlemen, I want you to know in a concrete, clear, and definite manner, that two types of reasoning exist. We must denominate the first one as subjective reasoning, and we must qualify the second as objective reasoning. Unquestionably, external, sensory perceptions are the foundation of the first type of reasoning. Yet, the second type of reasoning is different. This can only be processed in accordance with the inner, vivid experiences of the consciousness." - Samael Aun Weor, Hell, the Devil, and Karma

“In Gnostic Christic esotericism, we are always quoting six degrees of the conscious objective reasoning of the Being. The degrees of development of the objective reasoning of the Being are known by the number of tridents that are shown on the horns of the individual Christus-Lucifer, who is within each one of us.” - Samael Aun Weor, The Gnostic Bible: The Pistis Sophia Unveiled


“Gnosis is lived upon facts, withers away in abstractions, and is difficult to find even in the noblest of thoughts.”
