Recently I came across a text that also contains an interesting allegory, written by one of the founder of Theosophical Society, William Judge. The allegory is a dialogue between a student and his teachers, and the whole situation is taking place “inside the student’s heart”. It goes like this: Continue reading
“A higher Level of Being is directly above us from moment to moment. It is not in any remote horizontal future but here and now within our own selves, on the Vertical.”
~ Samael Aun Weor
One of the most important teachings passed down by Samael Aun Weor, is that which speaks about the two lines of life – the horizontal line and the vertical line. There is a short chapter dedicated to it in the book Revolutionary Psychology, and he also refers to it in other places as well. It is well known in esoteric schools that life, from the point of view of the spiritual work, can be narrowed down to everyday mundane life (which represents the horizontal line) and the spiritual life (the one that is lived inwardly by applying the efforts to awaken). This latter line of life is the vertical line. Continue reading
When a person starts developing spiritually in a true way, they will eventually discover a topic about the usage of the sexual energy in the esoteric work. This is the basis of the inner transformation; the cornerstone of any real spiritual-psychological work to be able to take place inside. Continue reading
The spiritual work has potential to bring us to the heights of which a lot is written, and which many throughout the history have known about through direct experience. A lot of it can be summed up in an ancient Vedic mantra (also known as the Om Asatoma mantra), which is a form of a prayer, taken from a sacred text called the Upanishads. It goes like this:
Om Asato Maa Sad-Gamaya
Tamaso Maa Jyotir-Gamaya
Mrtyor-Maa Amrtam Gamaya
Translated, it means: “From ignorance, lead me to knowledge. From darkness, lead me to light. From death, lead me to immortality.” Continue reading
When a person starts to work on themselves in a psychological-spiritual way, the frequency of their vibration will start to raise. This brings many changes to their life – many spheres of their life are transformed for the better, including how they approach and interact with their environment. One good example is that such a person would not feel comfortable any more living in a house that is cluttered with things and where mess abounds. Continue reading
Exercise of meditation is not a prerequisite for clairvoyance and astral projection, but can help achieving those abilities. When I was starting out with astral projection, I heard many talk about meditation as a help to astral travel and how it is necessary to practice meditation first for some time. I can understand why – when we work on silencing the mind, and if we go deeper with meditation and start to observe our thoughts and emotions (more on this technique in another post), we will see how this will carry on to other exercises that require concentration, such as astral projection. Then when the thoughts will come and go, it will be easier to stay detached from them and focus on a technique that leads to the precise point of the conscious astral split (which is when the body falls asleep and the mind stays awake).

In today’s day and age, in the pace of life that tries to keep up with the modern system of living, where almost everything revolves around making money and survival, many have started questioning if this is the true way to be, if this is our true nature, and are turning towards silence. This can then eventually lead them to meditation.
There are also those, however, that the prompting guide for meditation is not only to ‘slow down’, but also to search for answers within themselves, for the mysteries of their Being.
Whatever the case may be, meditation comes to be almost as something that saves from falling into a dark pit. Many have said that without this tool they would still be stuck in the repetitive mechanical ways of life that mercilessly squeeze out the energy out of them. Continue reading
