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

No dogma. No guru. The inward path is a way to gnosis and spiritual awareness.

Silence

Quietude is the gate that guide the aspirant to inner truth by silencing the limited ego. 

Effort

Spiritual effort is required.  Through spiritual practices one is made manifest into their powerful 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 the Greater Soul 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 I strive to 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

So speak as if the world entire were but a single ear intent on hearing what you say. And so, in truth, it is. So does if your every deed were to recoil upon your heads.  And so, in truth, it does. So wish as if you were the wish.  And so, in truth, you are. So live as if your god Himself had need of youHis life to Live. And so, in truth, He does.

Mikhail Naimy

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.
