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:

Wisdom imbued in Mantra Om Mani Padme Hum

One of the most popular Buddhist mantras is the one deriving from the Tibetan Buddhism, Om Mani Padme Hum. It is popular among the Buddhist devotes and laymen alike; in fact, it is so popular that you can hear it in the most odd places if travelling in the Himalayan countries, such as Nepal. This mantra is said to have enormous power because of its association with the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara. The latter is known in the esoteric teachings as the All Pervading Force of Christ –

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

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,

Creating Spiritual Associations for the Awakening of Consciousness

In one of his life lectures, Samael Aun Weor has brought to attention the necessity of having as much as possible spiritual associations throughout the day, by living a spiritual life and by immersing oneself in spiritual activities. By so doing, we create spiritual associations that help the consciousness in the process of its awakening. In that lecture, he was especially emphasizing how this new associations help the consciousness to break free during the dream state from being submerged

From Love to the Twin Souls to the Being

In order to do the spiritual work to reach the Being, it is necessary to already have some spiritual qualities developed from previous lifetimes. I have talked about some qualities needed to ascend spiritually a while back, and a good portion of those have already started to develop before the concrete interest to walk on the Path emerged. It is likely that without this qualities sprouting in a proper sense, there would still be no interest in the Work and the Path.

Is Truth One, or Many?

“What is the truth” is one of the main objective of spiritual quest throughout millennia; every spiritual seeker is searching for the truth about life, death, oneself, reality etc. We could say that everyone is seeking for deeper questions of life, regardless if they are of a religious, spiritual, agnostic or atheistic mindset, though the strength of the inner impulse that makes one question is of a different intensity, just like the work for self-realization varies from one person to another.
