Two Meditation Approaches by Rudolf Steiner

In many of his teachings, the founder of the Anthroposophic school, Rudolf Steiner, emphasized the need for meditation in order to develop a rich inner life that would eventually lead to the blossom of organs of perceptions with which one can study higher worlds. This Gnostic approach to study of the higher worlds and higher knowledge, Mr. Steiner, called the spiritual science. For the purposes of his research, he mostly taught some simple but effective concentration practices. In today’s

Some Necessary Qualities for the Spiritual Path

In his book How to Know Higher Worlds, Rudolf Steiner has outlined some of the necessary qualities or requirements that are necessary to walk upon the spiritual path. Due to his enormous contribution to the esoteric corpus of knowledge, Steiner was one of the most prominent spiritual teacher of the 20th century. Although the path he talks about is not as elaborated as what we study in the teachings of Gnosis, the requirements he outlined can be applied here as well. These seven requirements are:

A Blue Race and their Mission on Earth

It is becoming more and more common knowledge that we are not alone in this Universe; that advanced star civilizations that are traveling know about us on Earth and are benevolent. Some go further and say that at one point in time, we co-operated and exchanged knowledge with advanced races from other star systems. This is said to have happened in the past, when mankind was more in tune with its inner, true nature. Unlike today, people had faculties with which they perceived more of the

Remorse and Repentance on the Path to Liberation

In his teachings, Samael Aun Weor has mentioned the need to repent as a way of receiving a lot of help from our inner Being and spiritual masters. The act of repentance is also at the foundations of many other spiritual teachings, especially those of the esoteric kind. This act, when true, is not a mechanical way of nature, nor is it something that we can do as part of a religious protocol, but rather it needs to come from deep within us. A true repentance emerges from our essence and

Self-Denial: the Key to the Mysteries

In the age of the self, the title of this article may sound strange; in this day and age, we praise the self so much, seeing it as perfect and accepting all of its flaws as necessary and normal, so that when someone says something like “self-denial”, many tend to react with anger; to many people the notion of this sounds out of place, in this age of the self, when we are told that we are perfect just as we are…. Notwithstanding, deep down, as we work on self-discovery in our inner work, we

Reflection on the Inner Being

Much has been said about the inner Being, and yet everything that is said remains abstract; that is, it is abstract for those who cannot relate to it in any way, whilst those who have done a degree of the inner work and expanded their consciousness can feel intuitively, at least to a degree, what the Being is about. And those who have it incarnated, know it more profoundly, and yet it still remains a mystery even to them. The reason for this is because of our earthly mind, personality and

Contemplation on Life and the Path

On this path you are on you will find many things which perhaps you thought would make you happy, but as the days passed, you realized that this was not so. You asked yourself, “What happened? Where are they? Where did they go?” Perhaps you are encountering more of such things and logically, you might think that now you will be happy; the day may pass, and another deception comes and you, dear traveler, will say, “What pain I feel; I feel deceived with another disillusion.” Maybe you will

Encounter with People from another Galaxy: Samael’s Journey to Mars

“One day, it does not matter which, when residing in Mexico City, I had to visit “El Desierto de los Leones” (The Desert of the Lions National Park). I wanted to peacefully abide there, even if only for a few hours. I wanted to deliver myself to the calmest of reflections.

Using Mantra Solin Sala Ra to Establish Contact with ETs

Once we begin a serious inner work, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual nature go through transformations, making us apt to make contact with higher intelligences with more ease. It is true that anyone can make a contact with them with or without previously having done the inner work, however with the latter we not only can make the call, but also receive response, and much more. This goes for any form of higher intelligence, wherever it may be.

The Purpose of Gnostic Practices is to Wake up the Consciousness

A while ago I have written an article (Fundamental and secondary practices of the Gnostic teachings) in which I attempted to describe or categorize the two main forms of practices that we use in the Gnostic work. In this current article, I would like to emphasize that the purpose of all the exercises is to wake up the consciousness. By saying this, it may sound that I am oversimplifying things, as all these practices are related to various inner processes on the journey to enlightenment,

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

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

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
