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. This temple does not only refer to the biological interior of the body, but more to the non-physical parts of it, such as the consciousness, the five psychological centers (intellectual, emotional, sexual, motor and instinctual), the higher bodies (such as astral and mental), as well as other counterparts that some people may have more and others less,

A Meditation Approach for Conversing With Your Atman

In his book “The Introduction to Gnosis”, Samael Aun Weor has written about an interesting meditation approach for conversing or strengthening connection with your Atman (Divine Spirit). It consists of relaxation, mental relaxation, and concentration. This approach combines an aspect of meditation on an ego practice which he taught as one of the main means to dissolve the egos, however in this practice here he uses this aspect to silence the mind. Here is what he has written:

The answer to this question most often heard would be that it is to achieve freedom, happiness, knowledge, as well as some other qualities. Many spiritual teachers of today would say that it is to know oneself and to be comfortable with oneself, so to go through life with joy.

How To Experience and Feel Your Consciousness

To have a direct experience of one’s own consciousness seems to be a prerequisite for many spiritual endeavours and endeavours towards higher knowledge. Without knowing what the consciousness is, we are still tapping in the dark and have yet to arrive to one of the first major thresholds of the path. Without this experiential knowledge, we can go up to a certain point, but eventually we have to acquire this experience in order to build up faith in the inner work and in the Being.

Signs of the Awakening of Kundalini and its Six Mystical States

The Kundalini energy is one of the essential parts of the spiritual awakening and the process that leads towards the Final Liberation, which is the liberation from the Wheel of Samsara and from the Universe. This energy rises up from the base of the spine in the Muladhara chakra and it goes up through the Sushumna channel in the spine until it reaches the Sahasrara chakra at the top of the head, opening the connection between the human being and their divine origin.

Mental and Emotional Hygiene in Daily Living

In this day and age, a lot of importance is placed on physical hygiene, but very little on mental and emotional ones. In schools and universities there is very little information (or not at all) on how to deal with ones own thoughts and emotions, and even that information is scarce and insufficient. At homes, parents raise their children based on their own values, with very little knowledge of the thought and emotion culture. Unfortunately then, the lack of this information has created the

Are Psychedelics Useful for Spiritual Awakening?

The usage of psychedelic substances for the purpose of spiritual growth is something that is not uncommon – it has been done for a very long time. Occasionally, authors appear in the West that revive the interest of public in these things.

A group mentality is an aspect that is common in all spheres of life, wherever there is a group of people that have come together because of a common interest or a goal. Inside a group, there is a tendency for members or participants to adjust their behavior to the type of behavior that has already been established within the group.

The Spiral and the Direct Path on the Journey to Final Liberation

When we commence the journey that leads towards the 'final' liberation, which is the liberation from the Creation and the Universe in which we are and where we grow, we find our life is not just something random, but rather that it has a concrete purpose; we begin to notice all the lessons that were taking place in our life before our commencement of the inner work; the things start to move towards their respective places, like the pieces of jigsaw puzzles. We also begin to notice that the

Gaining Control over Sexual Urge and Lust (Part II)

In the Part One of this article I mentioned some important things that could be considered and worked upon when wanting to deal with overcoming lust and sexual urge. As already mentioned there, lust is a great obstacle to spiritual advancement for many people. The reason for this is because sexual energy as such is the most powerful energy that we have in the body, and lust draws from this energy in order to gain strength and to ultimately feed itself as the result of having us giving in to

Entering the Threshold of the Path to Liberation

Often time, and for many people, the path to liberation appears elusive, incomprehensible, something that is out there and unreachable for most. It may especially appear so when we discover that many legends and myths of the world refer to stages of this same path, trodden by some famous figures of the past. All of this could be somewhat discouraging, though at the same time inspiring to consider that it might be possible to walk on that path and discover things that have been passed on for
