The Wonderful advantages of "My UPG"
Unverified personal gnosis (often abbreviated UPG) is the phenomenological concept that an individual's spiritual insights (or gnosis) may be valid for them without beinggeneralizable to the experience of others. It is primarily a neologism used in polytheistic reconstructionism, to differentiate it from ancient sources of spiritual practices.

This is in the Neo-PHD "Pagan Heathen Druid" world a wonderful thing.
1) It allows the easy Use It or Lose It with out having nagging guilt that someone may know something very very old that you do not but perhaps feel you should. Thereby eliminating a reason to to attack it.
2) If it is UPG and I believe all that we create without direct knowledge of other available sources that we have been exposed to is UPG. Then the road to saying prove it is closed for good.
Yes you can agree or disagree with it , "Take it or Leave It". Even show other sources that would indicate that this or that is or was not this or that way.
3) But if you expect there are other sources and the UPG was plagiarized, then that to adds perhaps value to it. Remembering we all almost have past lives, some form of Universal Psychic Mind and varying access to the Akashic Records Library. Do you still have your card?
So if you find something I share upsets you and I did not leave reference of others you can attack.
Will chalk it up to UPG, have a drink and feel free to send me some money for for scholarly research in the future.
