The Value of Patience on the Gnostic Path

One of the most important virtues that we can cultivate on the Path, is patience. There are many other important virtues that are indispensable, such as honesty, chastity, love, compassion, will etc., but in order to acquire those, we need to have patience. Therefore, with patience we can climb the ladder of the Being, and eventually reach the Human Soul – the first of the parts of our inner Being that we incarnate on the path to liberation.

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

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

Samael Aun Weor’s Mirror Practice to Strengthen Your Soul

Some time ago I encountered this interesting practice/petition from a book called Introduction to Gnosis by Samael Aun Weor. In it he describes how to get in closer contact with ones own soul, and how to try strengthening it with a petition that is done in front of a mirror. This can be very useful if we struggle in our inner work, when our will is succumbing to that of the egos, when it seems to us that we are not ascending in a proper way, or that we are stagnant, unable to lift up from

Self-observation for knoweldge of the self

Once we tackle the exercise of self-remembrance and grounding ourselves in the here and now, the next step is to observe within. By so doing, we see what is happening in our five psychological centers where the egos (subconscious defects) manifest. These defects govern our lives in so many ways, but when we start observing them from the point of view of an observer, we are then able to detach from them and not go along with what they want us to do.
