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 Transformation Described in Egyptian Book of the Dead

The Egyptian Book of the Dead is a wonderful compilation of ancient texts that describe passages of the deceased through the process of death. It is known that the ancient Egyptian culture had a lifestyle that revolved around preparation for what will come after the physical body dies. In that sense those people have placed a great emphasis on leading a life that is just, compassionate, and that will move them towards attaining wisdom. Many also struggled to completely break free of the chains that tied them to this physical world Continue reading

Postponing the Inner Work

If we would talk to people who have spiritual longings about the need for the inner work, many would agree that it would be beneficial and even necessary to reach self-realization. At the same time, however, many feel that they are not ready due to their circumstances in life, that they need to place their full attention on their family, job careers, or some projects that they are working on. It’s also not uncommon for those who have been doing the work for some time and have failed in it, to decide to step back and resume it when they will be stronger. Continue reading

A Simple Yet Powerful Meditation of Mindfulness

One of the meditation techniques that I learned early on in my Gnostic journey is called “mindfulness”. It is an ancient simple technique from the Buddhist tradition, and yet very effective. I like to do it out in nature, but it can be performed anywhere where you find yourself. It is done like this:

Sit down somewhere where you are comfortable, be it a chair, cushion, rock, grass, sand etc… put all of your thoughts of the day aside and become aware of your surroundings. Take some deep breaths, holding it for a moment, and then exhale. Close your eyes. Continue reading

Tendency to Equate Angels With Humans

A couple of years ago I visited a place in India where I’ve met a devote of the Hare Krishna movement. We spent some time talking about spiritual things, and during that conversation a topic of lust came up, that further sparkled a talk about Krishna and his human characteristics, particularly some romances from his life. The devote said how it was normal that Krishna had human characteristics such as erotic playfulness and that he had over 16108 wifes, even though he was a spiritual being of a high caliber. (by the way, if you add that number kabalistically you get number 16).

I noticed over the years that it is not uncommon for people who lean towards spiritual side to have such view about higher beings who once walked the earth. Similar perception is attributed to Jesus, for whom it is said that he was a husband of Mary Magdalene, which interpretation is obtained from the early Christian texts, primarily the Gospel of Philip. If you ask many of the believers of the Christian faith, they will tell you: “despite of all he was also a human.” Continue reading

Searching Within by Belsebuub – A Book About Starting the Inner Work

Here’s a short post about the Belsebuub’s book on Self-knowledge that was previously available in various formats, such as in the paperback The Peace of the Spirit Within, and later on as an ebook titled Self-knowledge for Awakening. It then went on being unavailable for a while, and now finally it is back and available for purchase. The name of the book is ‘Searching Within’. I did not read this new updated version, but had opportunity to skim through it and briefly go through some parts of it. The material comes from one of his spiritual courses that was related to Self-knowledge, and the course was also named as the current version of the book.

The reason I’m writing about this here is because it is probably one of the best books out there that gives step by step guide on what to do in order to begin a serious spiritual work, the one that bring real inner change and moves us closer to awakening. The simplicity of the language, the depth, the exercises, the sequence etc. is written in a way that is easy to understand and follow. Continue reading

Reflection: To Be Given Another Chance

In one of his online talks about spirituality and the inner Work, Mark Pritchard (Belsebuub), mentioned a specific scenario that, I believe, has put many people to thought. The recurring theme was the importance of the inner work in the context of this life that we have on this planet, how valuable such existence is, and how precious is our time here. He mentioned the hypothetical situation of imagining ourselves at the end of our life reflecting back. The following meditation is inspired by what he said. Continue reading
