“Transformed Student and the Path Ahead”

“Transformed Student and the Path Ahead”

    “Ordinarily unconscious of his higher life, the esoteric student renders himself conscious of it, and thereby his whole life becomes transformed. As long as the soul remains unseeing in the higher sense it is guided by superior cosmic beings. And just as the life of a person born blind is changed, through a successful [...]

“Thought Strength for Physical and Spiritual Success”

“Thought Strength for Physical and Spiritual Success”

    “Your thought is your real strength. When you lift a weight, you put your thought on the muscle that lifts. The heavier the weight, the more of your thought do you put on it. If, in so lifting, a part of your thoughts is turned in some other directions, if someone talks to you, if somethings frightens or annoys you, a part [...]

“Personal Redemption, Myths and Allegory”

“Personal Redemption, Myths and Allegory”

    “Long periods of probation were imposed, so that he knowledge of how to become as the gods might remain the sole possession of the worthy. Lest that knowledge be lost, however, it was concealed in allegories and myths which were meaningless to the profane but self-evident to those acquainted with that theory of personal [...]

“Gibran on False Prophets and Truth”

“Gibran on False Prophets and Truth”

    “Yesterday we honored false prophets and sorcerers. But today Time has changed, and lo, it has changed us too. We can now stare at the face of the sun and listen to the songs of the sea, and nothing can shake us except a cyclone. “Yesterday we tore down the temples of our souls and from their debris we built tombs for [...]

“Teaching, Learning and Sharing Spiritual Knowledge”

“Teaching, Learning and Sharing Spiritual Knowledge”

    “A wise man, whether teaching or learning, only wishes to learn or teach those things which are useful. He who merely has the appearance of wisdom, whether asking or answering questions, only deals with relatively trivial things. “A person who through the grace of God partakes of divine blessings is under an obligation [...]

“Two Roads Through Life: Physical and Spiritual”

“Two Roads Through Life: Physical and Spiritual”

    “Brothers in belief, there are two roads through life, the Road of Good and the Road of Evil; they are not clearly defined roads and often run side by side and sometimes cross each other. Those who travel without a guide or in darkness often mistake one road for the other. We are those who have chosen to walk in light, in [...]

“Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon”

“Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon”

    “Beloved reader, this is no jesting matter; he that accounteth it so, hath not tried it, neither hath he yet passed the Judgment; but his conscience is still asleep; and though it should be deferred to his latter days, which is very dangerous, yet he must pass through the Judgment or fiery trial. Happy is he that passeth [...]

“Spiritual Wings That Take Us To Heaven”

“Spiritual Wings That Take Us To Heaven”

    “When God created Adam, He did not provide him with bodily wings, like the birds,but He had designed for him the wings of the Holy Ghost, those wings which he proposes to give him at the resurrection, to lift him up and catch him away whithersoever the Spirit pleases—which holy souls even now are privileged to have, and [...]

“Spiritual Progress Requires Work and Proper Motivation”

“Spiritual Progress Requires Work and Proper Motivation”

    “Those who seek spiritual knowledge with much labor, but do not succeed in finding it, fail either through lack of faith or perhaps because in their stupidity and jealousy they have in mind to attack those who possess knowledge, just as the people of old once attacked Moses. … He who pursues spiritual knowledge for the [...]

“Hermeticism and Unity with God”

“Hermeticism and Unity with God”

    “Another system that should perhaps be fitted into the Gnostic framework is Hermeticism. It is very diverse and it draws its material from many sources within the Western Mystery traditions; it considers that the whole of mankind is on a spiritual journey that is designed to return to a state of unity with the mind of God [...]
