Following up the copyright infringement of our work

Our publisher Mystical Life Publications (MLP) is currently focusing as a team on following up cases where our work has been plagiarized. There has already been a great effort to find the sites where our work has been copied or posted without attribution or permission. Thank you to all of you who've contributed - it's been such a wonderful help, which I personally greatly appreciate. Now they are methodically working through them all, getting through the backlog of nearly 1,000 cases, which had built up over the years during the time we had our free eBooks available, and many more articles posted on this site (without copy paste protection for much of the time). They've already resolved a few hundred of them, which is great to see. In the next few months, they expect to have most cases resolved, which will be great to have done and out of the way. Here is the blog update they've written about it.

Why we’ve removed our articles on the meaning of the solstices and equinoxes

On the 17 of March 2018 Mark and I have removed what were the most popular articles on this website—which are the articles we’d written about the spiritual meaning of the autumn equinox, winter solstice, spring equinox, and summer solstice, as well as the greater spiritual significance of these times of year. They had been shared on social media over 23,000 times, and had become a world reference on the spiritual meaning of each of the solstices and equinoxes, ranking in the first 1 to 4 places in Google searches for terms like “winter solstice spiritual meaning” – above sites like Wikipedia, Encyclopaedia Britannica, and The reason why we removed them is because of the extent they were being plagiarized. They were first published between 2011 and 2012. From then on, they were copied and pasted by hundreds of people who plagiarized them verbatim, which is why in 2016 the copy&paste function on this website was blocked. This helped stop the verbatim copyists, and we hoped this would stop their plagiarism altogether. However, unfortunately it has continued. Although there have been a small number of people who have decently credited and referenced our articles when writing their own, many [...]

Ancient Prophecies of the End of Civilization

Ancient traditions of the religion of the sun preserve accounts of a series of world ages that were destroyed by global catastrophes. They describe how civilization periodically goes through golden and dark ages, and declines over time to be destroyed and spiritually renewed over again. Their ancient texts and teachings state that such a catastrophe lies ahead for our civilization too.

Visiting a paradise where good people go in the afterlife – new article

A new article has just been added to the autobiographical section - it's called Visiting a heaven where good people go in the afterlife. Here's an excerpt from the article: One night in 1998 while I was out of my body, I suddenly found myself in a place I can only describe as a paradise. It turned out to be a region where people go after death who have made substantial positive changes within themselves. Comments can be made on the article itself, which you can read here. For those who missed it, another article was added to the same section recently, but it wasn't mentioned in this news section. It's called An Experience of Pure Consciousness, the Samadhi, the Illuminated Void. There are more spiritual and mystical experiences on the Autobiographical Blogs page.

An update on the work we’re doing

We've been fairly quiet lately, and so would like to give an update on what we’ve been doing and have planned. Mark has spent the last few months writing a series of books on the path of the spiritual sun, and how to walk it. At this stage it’s likely to be released as a number of separate books, as the content would be too large to put into one. Photo by Lucas Silva Pinheiro Santos on Unsplash It will contain descriptions of the different stages of the path, the key exercises that allow someone to walk along it, chapters on a huge range of different spiritual topics, and accounts from Mark’s own spiritual journey. It will also bring together the information on the path of the spiritual sun found in the traditions that descended from the ancient Religion of the Sun, and will include a lot of excerpts from sacred texts. It will, by far, contain the most detail and content on these subjects that Mark has ever written, and will be the world’s most complete guide to enlightenment. I’m helping with research, and will continue to make videos at Sakro Sawel where I can. We’ll be [...]

The Lost Civilization of the Sun – A Missing Link in Our Ancient Past

Most are familiar with stories of the lost civilization of Atlantis, but in this video I explain that there is another lost civilization that lies even closer to us in time that most people are unaware of, and gave rise to the building of similar megalithic sites, and the spread of the same symbols, religion, and measurements, throughout distant parts of the world. I call it - the lost civilization of the sun. You can find the transcript of the video here on

Who is Odin/Wotan?

Odin/Wotan is the mysterious wisdom bringer and god of the Norse and Germanic people. But in this video I explain why I think he is so much more. Join me, as I traverse legends, mythology, local histories, and ancient sites, from Europe, to Turkey, Egypt, to Easter Island, and right through Central and South America, tracing the footsteps of this enigmatic figure known as “the wanderer.” THANK YOU I just wanted to add a note to say thank you very much to those who've supported us and the work we've been doing. Your donations allowed us to get all the equipment we used for filming these videos, so without your help it would not have been possible. Your support is so appreciated.

Hell as a parallel dimension in the realm of dark matter – new article

For millennia people have wondered whether such a thing as hell really exists? And if it exists, where is it and why can't we see it? Is it a place, or simply a state of mind?  And could it be inhabited by other beings, such as demons? Independently of one another, countless religions and traditions have included accounts of demons and hellish other-worldly places, and many people who’ve died and revived from near-death experiences have entered hell, encountered demonic entities, and come back to tell the tale. I’ve personally encountered demonic entities and seen hellish realms whilst out of the body (during out-of-body experiences), and my husband has explored this out-of-body underworld extensively, and the hierarchy of evil that exists there, for over 25 years... In this article, I’d ask you to put aside any preconceived notions, and to take a look at some of evidence for the existence of a hell as a parallel dimension that has been called Sheol, Xibalbá, Narakam, Diyu, Tartaros, Kuzimu, Uffern, Peklo, Hades, Helheim, etc. and is the location of the inter-dimensional entities described as demons, asuras, tzitzimimeh, the shayātīn, the guardians of the netherworld, shedim, daevas, and alu, in different cultures spanning our globe [...]

A talk on death and ghosts

In 2009 Belsebuub gave a talk on death and ghosts. It has been on the website for some time, but it wasn't listed and very few people knew about it. So now it's been put in the articles section where it's easier to find. From the talk: Q: Is it possible for a recently deceased person's consciousness to come and visit you in the astral plane? Belsebuub: Yes, it's very possible, especially if not long has passed since their death. But very often it's the personality or ghost of the dead person which comes and visits in the astral plane or in dreams. When a deceased person visits someone, even thought they are in a different dimension, some people do sense their presence. They are sensing the astral world while being in the physical one. These ghosts are the condensed mental form that a person acquires over the course of their life, which is discarded at a stage of death. They look and act just like the person but are unable to understand anything new. Because the ghosts think that they are still alive, they visit the places and people they used to see when they were alive. So if [...]

Next biography chapter published – Teaching Independently

The next chapter in Belsebuub's online biography has just been published, and covers the time from the end of 2010 until 2013. It's titled Teaching Independently, and begins: "From the end of 2010 Mark began to develop his website, and many of the talks he had given while in The Gnostic Movement were gradually transcribed and published on the site as web articles over the following three years. In 2011 Belsebuub’s book Gazing Into the Eternal: Reflections Upon a Deeper Purpose to Living was released as a free eBook on his website in Kindle and EPUB formats. Mark had always wanted to provide his work for free and had initially created his popular online courses in 2001 as free downloadable PDF files. As eBooks had become more popular and were a very low cost way of publishing, Mark thought it would be a good way to give his work freely in written format again, and so planned to gradually release all his books as free eBooks as they became ready. Towards the end of 2011 the book The Peace of the Spirit Within by Belsebuub was released as an eBook titled Self-Knowledge for Spiritual Awakening." Keep reading Teaching Independently

Study the egos to find the knowledge that will lead you to spiritual awakening

Try not to get demoralized when trying to understand the egos, but persist and study them thoroughly. As in the darkness of the subconscious is knowledge, and that knowledge can enable you to unlock the light of consciousness within you and lead to your spiritual awakening. This questions and answers session was recorded in December 2009 and it was the last public talk Belsebuub gave. From The Peace of the Spirit Within by Belsebuub: If you don’t explore within yourself, then the absence of knowledge of how you function will prevent you from understanding the spiritual and psychological root of yourself, which will prevent you from fundamentally changing. It’s like a mechanic trying to fix a machine without any knowledge of its inner workings. We as consciousness are here in three-dimensional form for the purpose of acquiring self-knowledge for our awakening journey back to the source we originated from. But for us as consciousness to do that, we need bodies to be in the different dimensions and an intermediary between ourselves and form, and that is the mind. The mind and the entire psyche is multidimensional; in this physical dimension we have a physical body with a brain [...]
