The Importance of Not giving up when Failing

The transformation from an intellectual animal into a true human being, and from a true human being into a divine being, is not easy. Nonetheless, it is achievable. On the Path to Liberation, there are always obstacles that prevent us from reaching the next stage in our work, and sometimes these obstacles make us fail. Failing in the work means giving in to the animalistic side of our nature, feeding it through identification with it and actions that we take, but also it means neglecting

Esoteric Practice that can Help Heal the Mind

It is already well-known that spiritual practices can have amazing effect on healing of the physical, vital, astral, and mental bodies. All these bodies are interconnected, which means the health of one depends on the health of the other. Nonetheless, some bodies have somewhat higher importance in the overall constitution, when it comes to health. It is described that the vital body is the most important one, because it is what keeps the physical body alive, and due to its importance it is

A Journey through the Four States of Consciousness

The goal of the spiritual work is to climb up the ladder of the Being, to reach higher and higher stages of the Path that can take one to the incarnation of all the parts of the inner Being. The consciousness that we have is the key factor in achieving that goal, because upon its transformation depends our movement forward. By performing the inner work, we go through esoteric initiations of the Path by which our consciousness is truly changed and expanded, and like this we journey through

Can we Discover on our Own What we Need for Enlightenment?

A phrase “all spiritual roads, traditions and religions lead to enlightenment” is something that’s been widely used in recent times. It goes hand in hand with a belief that” if you start becoming interested in spirituality, eventually you will work out what is needed to progress”. The word ‘enlightenment’, however, is something that’s been used in a variety of ways, and many people would say that they have become enlightened. Today it is not uncommon for someone who watched 10,20 or 30

Reflection on the Super-Efforts in the Spiritual Work

For the spiritual work to succeed, appropriate steps need to be taken. We all start from wherever we stand, and move from there towards complete inner purification and transformation. The more we progress on the Path, the more it is expected of us. In other words, we may start the spiritual work slowly, gradually feeling out the new spiritual environment in which we are immersing ourselves, but with every stage we reach we will need to increase our efforts if we are to reach a higher stage.

Self-Realization: The Ticket to the Fullness of Infinity

When dealing with the topic of self-realization, of bringing forth a latent potential that is hidden within a human being, it is very useful to research about it to the best of our abilities. This is done in the most substantial way by searching for the information within oneself, through contemplation, prayer, meditation, and other forms that can allow for such knowledge to be revealed to us by our inner Being, at least in glimpses until direct experience of it arrives.

The Probative Path of the Great Work

However, what I am going to write in this article is a very practical and concise information that is originating in the Gnostic teachings. It is an experimental knowledge that doesn’t have to stay written in a text, but can be verified by everyone who aspires to reach a higher form of life.

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 Complete Spiritual Awakening as the Highest Purpose of Life

A question that is often asked today is “what is the highest goal of spirituality”. 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. This question has been on the mind of many people, and it is understandable that, even though just the concept of freedom and

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. One of such very popular author was Carlos Castaneda, who in the second part of the 20th century went to Mexico to research the spiritual usage of the psychotropic plants, which resulted in him studying from a shaman for a prolonged periods of time. In
