This blog has started out as as a mean to share my understanding and experiences that came when practicing the teachings of spiritual teachers Mark Pritchard (Belsebuub) and Samael Aun Weor, and also as a platform where people interested in spirituality could share their own experiences. Here I write about many topics that I find important in regards to spirituality and spiritual development from the Gnostic tradition of Samael Aun Weor.
Even though not all of the topics are directly connected to this tradition, the core purpose and topics of this blog surely is. Specifically, I’m referring to the techniques such as the three keys, self-knowledge, awareness, certain meditational techniques etc. Here I write about these core techniques, but also about other ones that provide an insight and knowledge into non-physical side of life, of that which happens beyond “the cave”. These secondary practices (such as astral projection, higher faculties utilization, meditation etc.) often times can give us needed motivation and strength to do the primary ones (the three keys to awakening, the self knowledge etc.). Besides that, I also write about general spiritual topics that are useful, such as protection, spiritual inspiration (books, texts, poetry), and so on.
The esoteric teachings are universal. They are part of the sacred texts of the ancients, and can be found in religions, such as those of Egypt, the Americas, Taoism, Tibetan Buddhism, Vedas etc. They are also encoded in music, art and poetry, for those who can see or feel them. This secret teachings survived the difficult Medieval times, and were brought back to Europe from the Middle East by the Knight Templars. The teachings were pillars and foundations of secret mystery schools such as the Hermetic Order, Rosicrucianism, and the Freemasonry. Some of the people who taught it in later years were Helena Blavatsky, Eliphas Levi, G.I. Gurdjieff, Samael Aun Weor, Rabolu, Belsebuub etc.
It was Samael Aun Weor, however, to be the first one who unveiled the teachings, giving profound depth to them and making them practical and accessible to all those that were ready to receive them
The core of these teachings is a practical application of the Three Factors in order to purge internally of all that is coarse and heavy, and to create the spiritual bodies necessary for the re-integration with ones own Monad (Higher Self).
I consider important all topics I wrote about thus far (some more than others), but those that stand out more than others in terms of spiritual development are:
– Awareness of the present moment (mindfulness)
– Self-observation (spotting various egos in different centres in the body)
– Elimination of egos/ increasing consciousness ( the first key for awakening)
– Alchemy/White Tantra (the second key for awakening)
– Helping others spiritually (the third key for awakening)
