Resurrection as depth psychology in Gnostic Gospels

Quote from the Gnostic teacher - a letter to his student, Rheginus, called

A Treatise on Enlightenment (abbreviation)
Gnostic Gospels - Elaine Pagels
Gnostic Gospels - Elaine Pagels

Do not suppose that resurrection is a fantasy or illusion.

Ordinary human existence is an illusion / spiritual death. Ressurection is a moment of enlightenment, which can happen anytime - IN THIS WORLD - in this life.

It is the realisation of what truly exists, and migration into newness.

...

Examine your own self, and see that you have arisen.

Best discussion in The Gnostic Gospels, by Elaine Pagels, page 42 (Fans of Douglas Adams - :)  )
