Reflection on the Seven Last Words of Jesus

In an esoteric sense, the life of Jesus Christ provides with an incredible wealth of insights that every initiate (and aspirant to the Path) would do well by studying and trying to understand its deeper significance, and how it relates to us individually, as his life was more than just a historical account or a one-time saving event. When we begin with our awakening process, we start to notice that the lives of great spiritual masters can also be looked at from the point of view of the Path

At the Doors of Silence: Entering Properly to Meditation

Ancient wisdom states: “The terrestrial thoughts must fall dead in front of the doors of the temple.” In that statement lies the key to great success that can come from the practice of meditation. It’s not uncommon that when the meditation practice becomes a routine, we enter it as if we are always ready for it and always know exactly what to do. Though it happens that this assurance can be used against us by the ego and the personality, if we are not careful. That’s why it is important to

Do Not Allow Thieves and Wild Beasts to Enter and Dwell in Your House

In the universal language of symbols, house is a common representation of your body, or rather the interior of the body, your inner temple.

Mantras for Astral Projection

In the teachings of Samael Aun Weor, there are many mantras that are taught as a mean to achieve astral projection. The latter is an ability through which we can safely leave our physical body at will in order to consciously enter the astral plane (which is in the fifth dimension), in order to explore more of the reality than what we know of here in this physical world.  This was an important practice in many esoteric and occult schools of various religions and spiritual traditions, because

Mythological Symbolism of the Great Work: The Hero’s Journey Towards the Source

Throughout the world the great inner struggle, or the Great War that takes place inside a person that aspires to reunite with their Being/Higher Self has been depicted in many different forms, throughout ages and continents.
