War on Spirituality and Consciousness

Many believe that we live in a free world, a world in which we have freedom to choose whatever we wish (within the society’s norms) and that we will be allowed to do that or won’t be criticized because of it. We are taught that in the past things were different, the opportunities were much less due to what was tolerable and what was not; and one of the thing, we are told, that was surely not looked upon with enthusiasm were the spiritual teachings outside the main religions. It is true that

Choice and Destiny

In life, we have free will to make choices that we want to make, which then determines how our life will unfold. Some choices presented before us are more important than others, though sometimes even the seemingly unimportant choices make out a concrete path that we find ourselves on. If we choose to do some big things in life, such as the inner work, this will obviously take us in a completely different direction to what would happen if we choose trivial things. So there is choice, a free

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

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

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.

Sacred Dances: The Acting of Movement upon Spirit and Consciousness

Sacred dances are some of the earliest dances in the known human history. For many thousands of years, humans have included movements and rhythmic movements during their religious ceremonies and observances. We can trace this custom in many ancient cultures of the world, such as in North and South America, Egypt, Greece, Babylon, Persia, India, Tibet, in Slavic and Nordic cultures, among the Aboriginal tribes of Pacific islands, and in many other cultures throughout the world. Most

Reflecting and Meditating on Verses of Sacred Texts

Reading spiritual texts can be a great source of motivation, inspiring us and opening our minds to new approaches and thoughts. Most people read these texts in order to learn something new, which is a valid reason, though such information stays only on intellectual level if it is not understood with the faculty of intuition or grasped by the sufficient free consciousness that an individual have, though as such abilities depend on spiritual level, not everyone can get those insights when

The Laws of Return (Reincarnation) and Recurrence

There are many Universal laws that govern the cyclic existence in which we move, within the Wheel of Samsara. It is said that the seven dimensions of this Universe are all of different number of laws: the three-dimensional world has 48 laws, the fourth dimension has 24 laws, the fifth dimension (astral and mental plane) has 12 laws, the sixth dimension (causal and buddhic plane) has 6 laws, and the seventh dimension (Atmic plane) has 3 laws, and in the Absolute there is only 1 law.

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

Science and Spiritual Wisdom

We live in the point in time when science is put on the highest pedestal of society. If science agrees with something, it gives it approval to have its place in the world, and if it doesn’t, that something becomes marginalized and is looked in a certain way. Spirituality, for example, is deemed not scientific, and therefore it is placed in a special unprivileged place in society where, although billions of people around the world are practicing their religion, they are not too open about

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

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

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
