A Practice of the Light (by A. K. Heller)

In his book the Magic of Silence, Dr. Arnold Krumm Heller (also known as master Huiracocha) has written about an interesting practice, which he called “the Practice of Light”. It is a type of practice that invokes and maintains the presence of light through continuous visualization and conscious intention. I decided to share it here with hope that it might be useful to some people. What this practice essentially does is that it stimulates to activity the higher parts of ourselves (depending

Being In Society but Not of It

One of the very important element of the esoteric wisdom pertaining to spiritual development is to learn to live in society, while at the same time being "detached" from it. At first sight this can be hard to grasp, though crucial to understand and apply this principle in our lives if we want to achieve spiritual mastery and the final liberation. For many people interested in spirituality, the concept of living in society and wanting to reach spiritual awakening does not go together, and

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.

Meditation on the Sun: Intuiting the Essence of Our True Nature

One of the inspiring things that could be focused upon in meditation, is the sun. Besides providing life to all living beings on our planet and keeping the solar system nourished and in its place, it also has a spiritual significance. In ancient cultures, sun was often regarded as god, or a chief ruler, to whom offerings were given. It seems that people in those days were more connected to the sun and to nature; living somewhat more in harmony with its sacred principles. In modern times,

Transmutation of Sexual Energies with Mantras

One of the most important teachings that Samael Aun Weor has left us, is transmutation of sexual energies. Even though this aspect of the spiritual work is one of the ingredients necessary to reach the final Liberation, it is a very important one. All of the elements taught are intrinsic and necessary, such as self-remembrance, self-observation, mystical death etc., and the transmutation of sexual energies is one of such important elements. Without it, we could not go far into the inner

Spontaneous Practice in India: Meditation in Space

Last year I was traveling in India, visiting many of the interesting places with temples and heightened energy. There are many religions in India, and people practicing them are co-existing peacefully with one another.

Such a long tradition of spiritual activity has left tangible charge to the country, and
