Hardships and Difficulties while doing the Gnostic Work

Hardships are a common theme throughout life, and are not uncommon in our inner work. In the later case they can take on a different note, and that’s because of the nature of the spiritual work. By this I do not mean that life becomes harder when the inner work is applied, but rather that we become more conscious of life’s hardships. In a normal case (that of a person who is not doing the inner work), they would go through hardships in a mechanical way, half-conscious of the suffering that they go through. Many then look for some sort of relief by indulging into different pleasures of life in order to forget the pain, not wanting to know that this pendulum of pleasure and pain will not resolve the issue that they are dealing with.

Is Fearing and Avoiding Astral Realms Necessary?

Astral travel is a fantastic ability that many would like to develop, but for many this thought of consciously stepping out of their body brings up fear, not knowing if they will come back, or fearing the unknown etc. On top of that, some 19th century occult writers, such as Helena Blavatsky, have also contributed to spreading this fear of astral planes by saying that it’s better to avoid it all together because of its illusionary nature and temptation that is to be found there. However, there is much more to the astral realms then what has been said by Theosophists and those who fear travelling there. Continue reading

Using Winter To Deepen Practices and Ground in Consciousness

Since early on I felt that winter is a great time to go deeper with practices, and to apply more efforts into making them work. Traditionally in civilization, winter time was used to rest and to prepare for the new season. This was especially so in agriculture line of work, but also in other areas that people worked in. People were preparing for winter during autumn, and then during winter they did very little work and spent most of their time resting. Everything slowed down in winter – people, animals, and nature itself. In such way, nature shows us that, as winter is a time when everything stays still and is at the point of ‘death’, that we too should slow down. Continue reading

More About the Spiritual Ascension Course

Image by Gilbert William

The Spiritual Ascension course is the main activity offered here because it entails presenting the path to complete awakening in a direct and step-by-step way. The goal of this course is to help people to ascend spiritually in a very deep way. I have composed it based on many years of studying and practicing the Gnostic and Esoteric teachings. The course draws from understanding and knowledge that I got by practicing the teachings of Master Samael Aun Weor and Master Belsebuub. One of the main reasons why I composed it is to present the path to awakening in a way that is very straightforward and clear, so to help others to not get lost in too much theory and wonderings about whether they should do this or that.

Spiritual Courses and Workshops on Highest Quest Starting Soon

For the past few months I have been arranging a start of online spiritual activities in the format of courses and workshops, and am glad to announce now that they will start at the end of this month. I wanted to create an activity through which I would be able to explain about the way to spiritual development that I learned practicing the teachings of Samael Aun Weor and Belsebuub, which in their essence are of Gnostic origin. So with this goal in mind I composed the main format of passing down this instruction, which is through a course called “Spiritual Ascension”. As the name imply, it is about ascension, but of such kind that brings an incredible inner change and can lead a person towards spiritual mastery. Continue reading

Madame’s Blavatsky Advises for Spiritual Advancement

The following is an excerpt from the Madame’s Blavatsky article called “Practical Occultism”. The excerpt consists of some of her advises in regards to spiritual advancement, such as strengthening will, praying, dealing with desires, and so on. It is aimed at larger audience, particularly those who are not very acquainted with deeper forms of development, so the advices may seem as precepts rather than guidance, however some of them are well elaborated. Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, also known as Madame Blavatsky, was a famous figure of the 19th century in the occult and esoteric circles, and was one of the founders and key figures in Theosophical Society – an international organization that played a huge role in promoting esoteric subjects to the world in the 19th century. The article “Practical occultism”  is lengthy and gives some food for thought, but the excerpt I am including in this post is the heart of the practicality of that article. It goes like this: Continue reading

Reflecting on the Year and Movement Forward

When we do the inner work, it’s always good to evaluate how we are doing. This can be done daily, weekly, monthly, and also annually. It can be really interesting to look back over the year, seeing how things went, because we then see ourselves in the spiritual work in a larger time-frame than one day or a month. When we look at things from this perspective, we are aware that we don’t have that much time in a lifetime inside which we could realize our spiritual work, understanding that each year is a precious opportunity to do something worthwhile with our spiritual work, something that, if we work properly and intensely, could be seen and measured. The reason for this is because the Work is not something abstract that manifests some good changes in us from time to time, but a concrete thing that transforms our consciousness. Continue reading
