And even how in many cases this was done by design, like in the suppression of all Gnostic texts that included her as part of “Godhead”, even though many are ascribed to the disciples and contain the teachings of Jesus himself.

The list is mounting, as I just stumbled on yet another.

This text is called The Gospel of the Egyptians. Jesus and his parents were said to have traveled through Egypt, and the creative trinity of Father, Mother, and Son is central to ancient Egyptian spirituality—portrayed most famously as the deities Osiris, Isis, and Horus. In the orthodox version of Christianity the Mother in this same trinity became supplanted with a male Holy Spirit.

The Gospel of the Egyptians is just one of 52 early Christian texts that were accidentally discovered together in a sealed jar under the sands of Egypt by a farmer in 1945. The collection of texts today have been given the name the Nag Hammadi Library. Many of the texts are attributed to the disciples and contain never before seen sayings and teachings of Jesus, including further accounts of his life. It is believed that these texts had been the property of a nearby monastery, but were buried after a Bishop condemned the use of all non-canonical books in a letter written in 367 AD. Basically all texts not sanctioned by the orthodox Church were banned, and these texts were buried in the hope of saving them. And there they lay beneath the ground for over 1,000 years.

The Gospel of the Egyptians doesn’t mix words about the Mother being part of the Trinity—that is, as one of the fundamental aspects of the creator. She’s not alluded to as the Holy Spirit as in some of the other suppressed Gnostic writings, but is simply called “the Mother”.

Here are some excerpts:

Three powers came forth from him; they are the Father, the Mother, (and) the Son, from the living silence, what came forth from the incorruptible Father. These came forth from the silence of the unknown Father…
From that place, the three powers came forth, the three ogdoads that the Father brings forth in silence with his providence, from his bosom, i.e., the Father, the Mother, (and) the Son.
The <first> ogdoad, because of which the thrice-male child came forth, which is the thought, and the word, and the incorruption, and the eternal life, the will, the mind, and the foreknowledge, the androgynous Father.
The second ogdoad-power, the Mother, the virginal Barbelon, epititioch

[…]ai, memeneaimen[…], who presides over the heaven, karb[…], the uninterpretable power, the ineffable Mother. She originated from herself […]; she came forth; she agreed with the Father of the silent silence.
The third ogdoad-power, the Son of the silent silence, and the crown of the silent silence, and the glory of the Father, and the virtue of the Mother, he brings forth from the bosom the seven powers of the great light of the seven voices. And the word is their completion.
~The Gospel of the Egyptians from the Nag Hammadi Library, Translated by Alexander Bohlig and Frederik Wisse

Then the child of the child, Esephech, appeared.
And thus he was completed, namely, the Father, the Mother, the Son, the five seals, the unconquerable power which is the great Christ of all the incorruptible ones.
~The Gospel of the Egyptians from the Nag Hammadi Library, Translated by Alexander Bohlig and Frederik Wisse

In the excerpts above, the Father is said to be androgynous. As Mark describes in his work, this is because the Father, or masculine aspect of the creator, only becomes masculine as a result of being separated from the Mother, the feminine aspect of this same creator. Until then, the supreme creator is neither male nor female, but contains the attributes of both and is therefore androgynous. The creator divides into male and female (which is also why in the excerpt that the Mother originated from herself—meaning she is not born, but is an aspect of God that already exists), in order to begin creation, which results in the birth of the Son, and the formation of what is known as the Trinity—the personification of the three fundamental forces that underlie creation.

It is clear from even just the few examples given in the texts suppressed by the Church above, that there was a very different spirituality surrounding Jesus and practiced by those who wrote these texts. It is one that was very different from the orthodox version of Christianity founded largely instead on the teachings of Paul. Instead it shares principles, such as a dual male-female creator, as found in ancient Egyptian, Hindu, Chinese, Mayan, and Neolithic pagan wisdom–revealing its truly universal nature.

As found in the many articles and books by Mark, these principles can be discovered by each person and are connected to the development and awakening of consciousness.
