More than your body, greater than all limitation, is the True Self, infinite in nature.

No master. No guru. The path of the Individual is the only way to the power of Self….

Light & Dark

Focusing on one aspect of the spiritual experience, will lead to a lack of balance….

Effort

Spiritual effort is required.  Through spiritual practices one is made manifest into their powerful Self.

“The Death of Faith is the Birth of Power”

It is not enough to believe.  It is a failure to simply follow.  True Gnosis, as stated in “Liber Nigri Solis,” is the death of faith.  Faith is believing, Gnosis is knowing. This is a requirement of Becoming one’s True Self.

The Pillars of the Process

Reason, Meditation, Spiritual Practice, Mindfulness, Internalization and Letting Go of waste – these are the requirements of finding Gnosis… of finding Self.

Philosophical Reason

While the philosophical ideologies are a great starting point, one should reason on their own, to their own conclusions.

Meditative State

The aspirant must meditate.  There is no alternative.  Through single pointed concentration one is able to open the gateways of understanding.

Spiritual Effort

The writ of practice is paramount.  Whether one chooses daily ritual, ceremony, mantra or some other practice, it will focus the mind to a greater end.

Mindfulness

As much as possible, the aspirant should remain the continuous observer, mindful of every breath, every state of change.

Internalization

Observation and mindfulness should be internalized.  What is going on around us, is a reflection of what is within, or needs to be dealt with.

Letting Go

Contemplation of what holds us back from our greatest potential (the True Self), will show those areas of our lives that need to be dealt with, or those things that need to be removed.

Great Quotes

Inspiration can be found from the thoughts of others

O Thou that sittest upon the Earth! (so spake a certain Veiled One to me) thou art not greater than thy mother! Thou speck of dust infinitesimal!

Thou art the Lord of Glory, and the unclean dog.

Aliester Crowley

He who knows only his side of the case knows little of that.  His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute the.  But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion…

John Stuart Mill

The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. (Stephen Mitchell translation of Lao Tzu’s ‘Tao Te Ching’)

Lao Tzu

Being is a state that is like the new sun.  It illumines everything, including itself.  Being is a state of consciousness that is both self-reflecting its own source of illumination, as well as the means by which the universe is perceived.  In moments of Being, persons know who they are on all levels, from the most mundane to the most cosmic.
