A light of consciousness that overcomes the darkness within Hidden deep within the mind is the realm of inner darkness, root of the subconscious and the egos. The light of consciousness can illuminate the darkness within. The darkness can be destroyed, releasing light and with it the knowledge of darkness. As light gathers more light it illuminates the way on the return journey to source consciousness. The third segment of a talk in Oregon, USA in 2008.

The plagiarism of this work is too extensive for us to continue like this

It’s sad and very unfortunate, but we’ve had to stop the downloads of our free eBooks as they are being plagiarized on a huge scale. This has meant that our publisher Mystical Life Publications has had to spend more than a year trying to stop hundreds of plagiarizers. That’s time they could have spent towards more constructive things and that in turn has meant a loss of new activities. Here's what Jenny and Sabah from the Mystical Life Publications team have to say: Its wrong to continue simply being an anonymous and unwilling supplier of other people’s work and being left with an awful task of trying to chase up unscrupulous people, some of them who have been difficult and threatening to deal with. This can’t go on. Plagiarism of my work has been going on for a long time and I believe that many aspects of my work are more widely known through plagiarism than they are by me. My motivation in teaching is to let people know of the spiritual things I’ve discovered, so that they can freely have them too. And yet between the theft of my work and the abuse and harassment I've had to [...]

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.

Christmas as a celebration of universal spiritual principles

The celebration of Christmas has similarities with celebrations in other religions on the same date that predate Christianity and yet December 25th is celebrated today almost solely as the birth of Jesus. Why? It’s because Jesus as a spiritual figure has stood the test of time, while others have faded into the mists of history. Yet his life has striking similarities with the lives of older spiritual teachers in cultures around the world who were also said to have been born on the same day. This is because they all share a common message. The accounts of their lives carried in them a profound symbolism of the process of spiritual awakening, and these principles are the same, no matter what culture or age we are in. They all relate to inner processes that are part of the journey of consciousness back to its source. And the birth of the Son, which has been represented by the sun, is a crucial element of that process. Here are some of the articles on this site that relate to the birth of the Son/Christ, perhaps they will be useful for anyone who wants to go through the real Christmas within themselves: The Symbolic [...]
