Remembering The Gnostic Movement

A new website has just been created that looks back over The Gnostic Movement, showing many of its activities and spiritual practices. It's closed now, but The Gnostic Movement was an organization that Mark taught in for about 10 years, which ran classes and retreats. A lot of care has obviously been put into this very nice site and it's a lovely reminder of the time.

The paradox of the do-gooder – feeling good, but doing evil

We can destroy so much actual good when we think we're doing good. Sounds like a paradox—how could doing “good” ever be a bad thing? Egos that make us feel good about ourselves can do just as much harm as those that are openly negative, and can lead us to commit terrible acts of injustice against others even though on the surface the cause may appear moral and right. So often there’s a set of pleasing but blinding feelings that accompany doing what we believe to be “good”—an air of being right, a feeling of self-satisfaction, a teary twang of heartstrings, and even a sense of superiority… Whole organizations, movements, and political ideologies from far left to right, have been formed by those who unconsciously enjoy feeling good about themselves and their own sense of do-gooding. Holding a good cause like the tenet of some religion, the fanatical tendency to aggressively suppress and attack differing viewpoints follows a do-gooder wherever they go, no matter how much they appear to laud “equality,” “democracy,” and “freedom,” as they blindly stampede through and destroy people’s lives without the intelligence to perceive the real issues at hand. And sadly, unbeknownst to most who never [...]

Experiencing consciousness through mindfulness

Image by Greg Rakozy Have you ever had a moment where you felt a heightened sense of awareness in which you could tune into your environment and people around you, allowing you to perceive things you wouldn’t normally? Or have you ever experienced becoming aware in a dream in which you were then able to start making decisions within the dream world (called lucid dreaming)? What about a moment of love and compassion where you could actually feel what another person or animal was going through almost as if you were them? KEEP READING ON GAIAM TV    

The danger of not knowing universal principles, but being controlled by those who do

Fear, mind-numbing entertainments, junk food, propaganda, violence, drug use, pornography, slobbishness, adultery, and materialism all promoted through movies, music, fashion, "education", and advertising, are assailing our senses constantly. But why the barrage that seems to be engulfing everything in its wake as it increasingly snowballs, taking all that is good in society and everyone down with it—creating a dumbed-down, aggressive, ignorant, passive, and spiritually blind population? Whilst events always seem to have a randomness to them on the surface, upon closer examination, there are patterns. Civilizations rise and fall according to the timeless and unwavering principles that govern the universe, which is why it’s said that history repeats. We can’t avoid these laws; they are part of the nature's design, just like gravity or entropy. Throughout history there have been both secret societies working for good, and those working for evil, that have been aware of the existence of these universal laws. Those working to benefit humanity employed them in order to elevate the individual and society, enabling periods in history of liberty, great art and creativity, peace, prosperity, and mutual co-operation. These principles formed the axioms given by many great sages. Like when Jesus said: “Do to others as [...]

Getting down to work

We all know that sinking feeling of waking to the alarm on a Monday morning—and having to face another week at work… and thinking, wouldn’t it be nice to be on permanent holiday retreat. But if we look out the window, every living thing in nature is at work. The birds and insects, flying this way and that busily forage for food; the trees and flowers, are constantly expanding or contracting in accordance with the seasons. Nature’s design compels us to work and actively participate in creation; if we don’t, we are soon submerged by the forces of disorder, degeneration, filth, starvation, disease, and decay. These principle not only apply to the outer world, but also to the inner. Without a constant work on the egos within ourselves, degeneration takes hold, and our spiritual qualities and perceptions begin to atrophy like unused muscles. It is clear therefore, that we are here to work. Ordinary consciousness in the human body is receptive by nature (as it's here to soak up learning and experience to take with it through eternity). Therefore it needs to be engaged to be active, and creation provides the stimulus and impetus for it to do so. Those [...]

Walking without spiritual crutches

Often in our spiritual journey, and in the daily course of life, there just isn’t the time to sit down and meditate, pause in prayer and reflection, or do a mantra. So what happens when the hectic pace of life seems to out pace us? Who are we in those times, when we can’t even sneak in a moment of calm to recompose ourselves? Sometimes it seems like life’s circumstances come to force us to see what we really are, stripped of spiritual crutches, and to test whether we have built the inner muscles to enable us to walk without them. Consciousness is within at every moment, not just in spiritual exercises. I think many practices can help a great deal and are extremely important when used wisely, like crutches for those who’ve suffered the loss of their spiritual parts, to help us find and learn to use them again. And being in the spiritually blind and debilitated state we are in, it would seem a little arrogant to me to think we don’t need them. Take for example what Lao-Tzu says about this in the Hua Hu Ching: "Don't think you can attain total awareness and whole enlightenment without [...]

Connecting with Our Personal Mother Goddess

Ancient texts say that each of us not only has a physical mother, but our own spiritual mother, too. She has been described by Jesus, his disciples, the spiritual community of the Essenes Jesus was said to have spent time with, and in numerous ancient sources including those of the Mayans, ancient Egyptians, Hindus, and Taoists of China; and has been symbolized as countless goddesses such as Durga, Mary, Gaia, Isis, Athena, Coatlicue, Senge Dongma, Inanna, and as Yin energy — all of which encoded a knowledge of the feminine aspect of the universe and of our own consciousness.

The Occult Influence of the Blood Moon

By Oliver Stein under CC license. In around 17 hours a conjunction of a number of lunar phenomena will take place - Full Moon, Super Moon (when the Moon passes closest to the Earth) and Blood Moon (which is a lunar eclipse). It won't be visible in all parts of the world, but will mostly be visible in America, Europe, parts of the Middle East, and Africa. It is the final Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse in what has been a lunar tetrad. "The September 28, 2015 Total Lunar Eclipse is the fourth and final eclipse in a series of four total lunar eclipses called the lunar tetrad. The first three eclipses of the tetrad took place on April 15, 2014, October 8, 2014 and on April 4, 2015." ~ source Everything in nature has its time - sometimes the winds favour the direction of the ship, sometimes they oppose it, and sometimes they do not blow at all. Each time in nature's cycles can be used for different purposes, and both light and darkness are intrinsically part of the cycles of life. All times in life can be used wisely for inner learning by those wishing to awaken in [...]

Wishing everyone a spiritual equinox

The equinox is now just under 24 hours away, and will occur on Wednesday, 23 September 2015 at 08:22 Universal Coordinated Time. It’s a time to reflect upon the work of spiritual transformation, and to gain a deeper understanding of its stages. The equinox describes the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator (the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s Equator), which is when the length of day and night are equal—a phenomena in the Earth’s annual journey around the sun that occurs twice a year. Like all things in nature, the equinox has a deeper spiritual significance. As it is to do with the sun, our source of physical light and life, it is also about spiritual light—with the sun being the source of spiritual light and life in higher dimensions. The journey of the earth around the sun each year is connected to the journey to enlightenment; with each of the major stages of these journeys coinciding at the times of the solstice and equinox. That is why these times of year have been celebrated in connection with sacred teachings and sites around the world from ancient times. The Autumn Equinox In the Northern Hemisphere it [...]
