A Weekend at a Psychic Workshop

A seance from around 1920

Continuing with my theme of different psychic and spiritual activities I’ve tried, back in 1988 I went to a two day workshop at the Swansea Psychic Centre in Wales, UK, to explore psychic phenomena. It was mostly attended by old ladies. They had a nice facility with lots of rooms for different talks and activities and it was well presented and organised. Amongst the first of the activities, was one where we had to sit next to a person and describe each others life. The first person (an old lady) and I had nothing to describe about each other - we were blank. The instructor said when you have something in … [Read more...]

How Materialism Posing as Mysticism Limits Consciousness and Subverts Spirituality

shutterstock_210169588-crop

The law of attraction is a wildly-popular modern mystical belief hyped as the secret to fulfilling your every desire. It has big celebrity endorsements, and commercial products rehashing its claims sell in abundance. But beneath the glossy facade there’s often an agenda pushing egocentrism and greed in metaphysical garb, which limits consciousness and subverts spirituality for shallow materialistic ends. Many spiritual traditions have arisen throughout history and although they have their differences, a common recurring principle is that greed and spirituality don’t mix. Renowned spiritual teachers like Jesus … [Read more...]

This event is represented in the solar year by the spring equinox, which is Easter time. Here is a small selection: 163: He comes indeed, this Unas, weary of the Nine, an Imperishable spirit, he that bore more than you, he that suffered more than you, he that is more weary than you, he that became greater than you, he who will be happier than you, he who roars louder … [Read more...]

Why all this is free

The Path of the Spiritual Sun_3D

Our eBooks have been downloaded over 70,000 times and our site has had over a million hits. We’ve turned down a number of publishers because we want our work to remain free of charge. In doing that, we and our non-profit publisher could have given up at least $365,000 over these last 3 years, which is what we would have made if we’d charged for our eBooks at going rates on Amazon.com– and that’s not taking into account the huge advertising budgets large publishers with their access to the mainstream media offer. But have you ever stopped to ask yourself, is it right to charge money for spiritual … [Read more...]

On Jiddu Krishnamurti

456px-Jiddu_Krishnamurti_01

I thought I’d write a little about Jiddu Krishnamurti, as I studied his work a lot at one time and years later in numerous occasions while out of the body, I received some information about him, which can shed some light upon his work as a spiritual teacher. Krishnamurti was a great influence upon me, particularly as an inspiration to practice the awareness of the present moment and to observe my inner states. I began studying his work in 1981. Two years before that I took art as a subject in school, which enabled me to spend much of the time painting outdoors in nature. My goal was to capture the spiritual … [Read more...]
