What is Kenosis?

Kenosis occurs when you realize that you are full of yourself and need to empty yourself. It is the precondition and preparation for Gnosis and Pistis.

The following actions and expressions point to the process of kenotic self-emptying and ego dissolution:

Dieta, purga,

Neti, neti,

Nada, nada,

Amun, mu.

Give up everything;

cut all ties.

Drop out.

Die before ye die.

Purify yourselves.

Clean your pipes;

Clean out your didgeridoos.

Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice.



“Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God,

Have mercy on me, a sinner.”

Let go and let God.

“Not I, but Christ lives in me.”


“Be still and know that I am God.”
