Prayer as a Multidimensional Help

Prayer is an amazing tool that can be used to help oneself and others. Sadly, people only resort to it when pressed in the corner or when desperate. Often time, it is at such difficult times that many start realizing that there is someone or something there, listening and granting their wishes, and so they become either religious or more open to the spiritual side of life. But when we use this tool as we develop spiritually, we can achieve a lot, provided that we know how to pray, or how to

To be a Revolutionary in the Gnostic Work

In the Gnostic teachings, a lot is spoken about being a revolutionary in the inner work, by those who have reached far along the Path. Some of those teachers have described what it means to be a revolutionary, whereas some Gnostic students were fortunate enough to be close to such people and see from real life example what is the meaning of a revolutionary in the spiritual work.

Fundamental and Secondary Practices of the Gnostic Teachings

In the Gnostic teachings, there are many practices of mystical and psychological type, that have as the goal to awaken the consciousness and mystical feelings, so that we can move closer and closer to the incarnation of the Being, and later on to the full integration and mergance with it. Everything that we do in this Great Work is to fulfil the highest purpose of our life in and in the Wheel of Samsara – the self-realization of the Being and the liberation from this Universe and its laws;

The Values of Society and the Values of the Being

Since the very early age of our life, we start going through a conditioning process, where our mind is being shaped based on the norms of society. The first people in our life who do that are obviously our parents, who have gone through the same process and have their mind shaped and molded in the way to fit the society’s frames. Besides our parents, our mind has been heavily shaped by our peers, the education system, and various other institutions that we have encountered and had to deal

To Transcend the Ego or to Eliminate it

The work on the ego is the basis of true spiritual progress. Without working on it, we can only improve the quality of our energies to a very small degree, and can train ourselves to be a (seemingly) happier person, but in reality we won’t really be that much happier than when we had no clue about any spiritual teachings, but rather we will just concern ourselves more with things less mundane. The true happiness is achieved when we devote ourselves to the work on the ego. Peace, on the

Virtues and Qualities Needed to Advance on the Path to Liberation

To start the Path to Liberation and to advance on it, it is necessary to have certain qualities of the soul that enable us to go through the initiations and tests of the Path. This Path that leads to direct liberation from the Wheel of Samsara and into the self-realization of the Being is not for everyone, as most people today are not ready to sacrifice what is needed to sacrifice in order to progress in a strong way; they are still developing those needed

To Do Whatever it Takes

Reaching self-realization of the Being is not a small thing, it is not something which one day we become interested in and accomplish simply because we have that interest. In this epoch, we can get anything we want of this world by simply having an interest in it, provided we have the means to buy it. However, self-realization, the full awakening of the consciousness, is something very different. Everything is born of an interest, but if we are to achieve spiritual heights, this interest

Forgiveness on the Way to the Being

As we entered a new calendar year, I thought it would be useful to reflect a little on the topic of forgiveness and letting go, in order to not carry all the grudges and all the psychological trash that comes with it into this new year. Just like birthdays and some other important events of our life, the new year can also serve as a new starting point to strengthen our determination to do better spiritually in everyday life, by leaving behind that which is rotten or useless, by maintaining

Humility and Kindness

Humility and kindness are some of many qualities of the spirit that emerge as one grows spiritually. Humility is the quality of the consciousness that arises as pride is being disintegrated. Pride, being such an enormous ego with numerous aspects, will have the trapped essence having the opposite quality once it is liberated with the mystical death - it will be endowed with the quality of humility.

Meditation on a Spiritual Being to Connect with their Strength and Energy

A great way to receive an extra strength in the time of need, is to focus or meditate on a spiritual being. It may be that sometimes we lack strength, will or inspiration to continue working on ourselves; this may come about for many reasons, such as karmic, making wrong decisions, slacking with maintenance of an optimal inner level etc.; whatever it is, we have to return to ourselves and give our all in the work; give our all in striving for the work to become a fully integrated part of

Sacredness of the Word and its Power to Transform us and the World

During one of his talks, Samael Aun Weor has said the following: The Consciousness sleeps in our larynx, we are unconscious of the words. We need to become totally conscious of the word. There are times when to speak is a transgression, there are times when to keep silent also is a transgression.

The Role and Purpose of an Esoteric School in Spiritual Awakening

In this age of information, discussions about whether a spiritual school or group is necessary for awakening are not uncommon. There are many who wonder how important it is to be in such an organized environment when it comes to spiritual development. It seems to me that majority of people in spiritual circles still prefer a group or school learning environment, though more and more people adhere to the mindset of not taking part in any group, but rather studying alone and creating one’s

The Force of Entropy (and how to Overcome it)

The force of entropy, or the law of entropy, is a universal law that is related to the dissipation of energy. In science, this is known as the second law of thermodynamics. Unlike the first law of thermodynamics that states how the Universe contains and preserves its force, the second law of thermodynamics says how that force is gradually lost. This law of entropy affects everything, all aspects of existence. Every building up of force will eventually result in its dissipation, unless
