This was another one of those times when I had an episode in the works, and instinct told me to take on another subject. And it was when the episode was written that I found the reason why.
Isaac Bonewits has crossed over.
Among many Gnostics, myself included, saints are often referred to as either Celestial Masters or Ascended Masters, the latter being those who once shared our humanity, shortcomings and all. I cannot think of a better person to fit that description than Isaac Bonewits. Along with all else that might be said, there was a personal factor. He gave me much encouragement in building what I am building.
And we can learn much, and gain much, from Ascended Masters such as Isaac, and from Celestial Masters such as the Archangel Uriel.
The problem some of us (including me at one time) have with saints is a combination of too much and not enough. Too much embellishment, and not enough of the person as an actual human being with the same concerns and desires as you and I. There is no such problem with Isaac - his humanity was obvious.
And so let's look at one we knew. And perhaps celebrate all of them.
