In Gnosis, the revolution is the battle of the consciousness against the ego. This revolution is symbolized in many ways, in many traditions, often as a war (The Mahabarata). This is a revolution against animal instinct, desire, mechanicity and complacency, all of which make up our own mind.


"Tremendous is the effort and the vigilance that is needed from second to second, from moment to moment, in order to not fall into illusions. One minute of unawareness is enough for the mind to be already dreaming about something else, distracting it from the job or deed that we are living at the moment."
