Internal and External Oppositions are Opportunities to Climb Higher

Both in life and in the inner work, we come across many different oppositions. In regular life we will have people who will oppose us in one way or the other; sometimes we meet or deal with people who are like-minded, and at other times we face people who have a different viewpoint than us. Oppositions in life can also be related to what we do, what our interests are, and there are even oppositions that oppose us because of who we are. We create oppositions to one another because we do not

Betrayals on the Christic Path and the Purging of the Three Traitors

As it has already been said before, the Path to complete awakening and liberation consists of  three stages, also known as the Three Mountains, and each of these mountains has eight initations. It is on the Second Mountain that the initiate goes through, in a symbolical form and in the internal worlds, the large milestones in the life of the Christ, because inner Christ as a major part of the inner Being occupies the central role on that mountain. The above mentioned  milestones are events

Does Mixing of Different Spiritual Teachings Affects Our Progress?

As spiritual teachings today are so broad and easily available, it is not uncommon for people to mix different things from different sources. Sometimes in life, people feel that they have learned everything that they could from the teachings they were practicing, and want to move onto something else. Sometimes they feel they have ‘overgrown’ it, feeling that they need something more engaging, or just something different. And there are many people who practice aspects of various teachings at

How Reading Spiritual Texts Can Aid our Progress

Not long ago I have seen a documentary where a certain mystic have said that for someone to advance spiritually, they have to do three things: meditate, pray, and read spiritual texts. Although in Gnosis we would expand on that, there is a lot of truth in what that person has said, because all these three things can certainly help us a lot along the path – meditation helps us to experience the depths of consciousness and our inner potential; prayer enables us to form a connection with

Remembering the Inner Work in Daily Life, from Moment to Moment

The inner work has to be done from day to day and from moment to moment, if we are to succeed with it. This type of work is not like a meditation that is done once or twice a day, and then in between that time simply being calm and trying to deal with situations of life in a peaceful way, no. It requires an active application of practices like self-remembrance and self-observation throughout the day, with the goal to break the mechanical nature of the subconscious mind, so that it doesn’t

Creating a Sacred Space as a Help for Your Inner Work

It can be very helpful for the inner work to have a special space dedicated for contemplation, prayer, spiritual practice, and in general for making connection with divinity within and without. You could create such a sacred space inside your home, or in your garden, or somewhere in nature – wherever it may be, it can help with boosting your spiritual life, because it would be a place charged with high energy that would as a result increase the vibration of that particular place, and it

A Practice Connecting to Beings of Light

The practice that I will describe here is a simple one, though quite powerful and profound. It is using principles of prayer, but it enhances it because it also involves invocation, visualization, pure intention, and sharp focus, in order to connect to beings of light. Such beings have through history been known by many names, such as angels, divine beings, seraphims, archangels, devas, higher beings, etc. People from many different religions petition to them when they are praying, though
