    Hi Charis
    This would be true for a Christian Scientist. Although I have "read up" on the Science I have yet to develop the confidence to throw myself fully in to it.
    I'm not sure if there is a single word to describe what I'm trying to say. If my memory serves me right even Mrs Eddy said that there needs to be a new language to describe Spirituality.
    Western languages seems to be based on materiality and trying to describe spiritual concepts using materialistic expressions sort of does not quite get the picture across.
    This may be why so many people just switch off when the subject is raised. Its like we are talking in a different language.

    Gnosis' certainly does mean "revealed knowledge" but would you use it to describe how we interact with the idea that 2+2=4.
    The idea that 2+2=4 is to mortals absolute, indestructible, a part of us that cannot be detached. Is there one word that describes this sort of relationship, maybe not.
