Miguel Conner, A Voice for the Vilified - King Hero's Journey Podcast

Miguel Conner, author, storyteller and host of Aeon Byte Gnostic Radio has been is a voice for the Gnostic world view that’s been vilified for centuries.

"A culture of Gnosticism lives under the dark shadowy beings that don’t have our best interest."

Miguel is a professional story teller in the form of novels, non-fiction books and even marketing. But of all of his many achievements he’s most proud of raising 5 children to bring about a better world.

He says we must create better than the creator gods and their “butt slaves” in the establishment that keep us from finding our true selves.

His philosophy of life is, follow your bliss and doors will open, though they may not be the doors you expect to open.

The Mind is a Great Servant, But a Horrible Master

Miguel credits the slow burn of pain, solitude and loneliness for fuelling his creative and leadership life. He was the kid who didn’t belong, and got into trouble at school, which was a prison for individuality and passion.

He says he didn’t find the ultimate answers, just more choices. And because life is such a hard labyrinth, the more paths the better.

What is Gnosticism?

Older than 2000 years, the spiritual philosophy of Gnosticism says we are fragments of the Divine Mind. We’re not aware of this because we have been cast down in a manufactured world created to trap the Divine parts of ourselves.

Gnostic spirituality provides the means to deal with social issues on a daily basis, and taps the intuitive knowledge of self. Once you know self, you know God.

The Meaning of Enlightenment

Enlightenment means to be useful - to one’s self, family, job, and animals. People have lost this because they are programmed, traumatized and have lost their ways to be useful to themselves and the world.

Dialogue With the Psyche

Miguel shows how difficult it is to journey to wholeness. How are you supposed to go against the mind? How does a drug addict go against addiction? How do you stop being you?

He says it’s through archetypes and symbols that you can dialogue with the psyche that’s been through the traumas, manipulations, and lies. Dialogue brings out the shadow (everything you do not wish to be, positive and negative), the shadow becomes integrated, and you become useful to the world.

An unexamined mind is will go crazy, become a trickster god in a hall of mirrors. You have to master it by dialoguing with it and integrating its shadow.

Waking Up is Only Half the Battle

Each one needs to go on the Hero’s Journey, including a lot of apologizing and slaying of demons.

Miguel promises you are going to fall down on the path because, “The whole universe is the mind of a god, or a demented person.”
