Signs of the Awakening of Kundalini and its Six Mystical States

The Kundalini energy is one of the essential parts of the spiritual awakening and the process that leads towards the Final Liberation, which is the liberation from the Wheel of Samsara and from the Universe. This energy rises up from the base of the spine in the Muladhara chakra and it goes up through the Sushumna channel in the spine until it reaches the Sahasrara chakra at the top of the head, opening the connection between the human being and their divine origin.

Opinions of Others About Us and About our Activities

In life, we tend to be quite concerned about what people will think of us, or what opinion they hold of us and of what we do. This concern is often to the extent that we might even adjust our behavior, our thinking, feeling and acting to that of what is socially approved, or to what is approved in the group that we belong to, or whatever the circumstance may be.

Five Aspects of Divine Mother

Divine feminine has always had a very special place in many religions and esoteric traditions of the world. This mysterious force has inspired millions throughout history to contemplation, pilgrimage, meditation, and has even influenced their decisions and the course of daily lives. Even though in many cases this devotion is based on a belief, from it can grow a particular feeling of connection with this force; the force commonly known as Divine Mother.

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.

Could We Function In This World Without our Egos?

Often  time, people who are interested in spirituality, as well as those who are considering taking the path to liberation, wonder if it is possible to function in this world without the egos, without the defence mechanism and the psychological buffers created by the ego, or without things such as anger; the wondering sparked by the rationale that anger is needed in order to go well through life. It is also reflected upon if life could be lived without other mechanisms, such as lust,

How to Measure Spiritual Progress

Measuring one’s own spiritual progress when doing the inner work is not only something that can be achieved, but it is encouraged to do so. However, because spirituality is seen as an abstract subject, it is often assumed that a spiritual progress cannot be measured in a concrete way, and that the only way to attempt something of that sort is by some vague observations, or perhaps even being content with not measuring it all, when spirituality is approached as a kind of a belief system.

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,

The Benefits of Spiritual Retreats: How Reflection in Nature Helps the Inner Work

Spiritual retreats have been used by people for thousands of years, so for them to get more grounded in their inner work, or to create a strong force that will in the coming weeks or months make them remember of that which is spiritual. Many cultures from around the world have done that, and are still doing that for the exact same reasons – to strengthen the connection with divinity inside of them, as well as outside of them. Often time they would go on a retreat that would be preceded by a

A Dilemma of the Mystical Death: Meditation on an Ego vs. Death in Motion

The teachings that Samael Aun Weor has left us are priceless and extraordinary; one of the reasons for this is the technique for the dissolution of the ego that he elaborated upon extensively in many of his books and public talks. One of his greatest legacy is this length to which he went in order to help people understand what the ego is, what are its intricacies, and how to liberate the trapped essence by eliminating the ego that is conditioning it.

Releasing Karma Through Repentance and Forgiveness

The topic of karma is an important and a frequent one in many spiritual traditions, and with a good reason. As karma has such a major influence on our lives, it is very worth spending time studying it from a practical point of view, within our own day-to-day life. In most spiritual literature, karma is known as the law of action and reaction, or of cause and effect. This means that the actions that we take (or that we don’t take when we should have taken them, such as when not helping those

The Illuminating Void and the Story of Han Shan

The teaching about Illuminating Void is something that Samael Aun Weor emphasised a lot in several places in his books and talks as a mean to access the Reality that is beyond duality. The term "Illuminating Void" is coming from the word “Sunyata”, which in Buddhism is referring to Great Emtpiness, or the Great Void. In Gnosticism, Samael Aun Weor connects the Illuminating Void with the third ring of the Absolute – the outermost ring of the Ultimate Reality (or the Source) that is

The Battle of the Opposites Within the Mind

The battle of the opposites is a very important teaching from esoteric psychology, and on which Samael expanded upon in his teachings. The mind is an incredible instrument that we have; it gives us potential to think, plan, and organize our lives in a way that other species cannot, however at the same time it is also a great obstacle to spiritual progress. An ordinary human mind that most of us start any deeper form of spiritual work with is very limited in its scope and potential,

Doubts and Fears About the Gnostic Work

Every direction or experience that has a life-changing scope would eventually bring about questioning whether this thing is good for me or not, and even more so when the unknown is such that, besides some concepts that we might have about it, we don’t really know much about those high spiritual states that we are working towards. Often time this is the case with many spiritual directions that people take, including the Gnostic teachings of Samael Aun Weor.

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
