Why We Don’t Receive Royalties

We believe spirituality is not something you can price tag, and that it should be passed onto others just as freely as it’s received. We work in the ancient and time-honored way of running on what people give voluntarily in donations alone. In line with this principle, we used to give all our books away as free eBooks – The Awakening of Perception was downloaded over 11,000 times. However, they were so extensively plagiarized that we’ve had to provide them as paperback books instead. We continue not to receive any payments from their sale, which helps keep their price as close to cost as possible. Find out more.

    I got this book last week and keep reading its articles, one at a time… So interesting and insightful, it really encourages me to do my best in this spiritual work, despite all challenges of living in our society that lacks spiritual understanding.

    Reading things online or on kindle is nice and saves trees, but holding a real book in my hands makes it easier to me to understand its profound message!

    Still think, that you are wrong guys!!! The future is pretty much connected with electronic books, not made of paper ( trees)… So, I’m absolutely agree it must be totally protected with DRM codes and etc. But I’m pretty positive, one day you will come to this ‘significant’ point to publish them in electronic version for Kindle and IBook stores! And Let’s the Universe bless you with that in many different equivalents, including financial!!! Xxx

      Hi Anastasia,
      Thanks, we’re looking into what we can do with electronic books and may release some of the books in a more protected eBook format.

    It is really naive from the side of Author to publish all his books for free! Make a Kindle version of every book and we will be happy to buy them…)))

      Hi Anastasia,

      I am sure many people would be more than happy to pay for the books. However, the reason why the ebooks are free (and the printed books sold just with the production costs), is spiritual. It is not naivity, but a principle that was once honored when it came to real and genuine spiritual messages, but today got lost. Author provides his knowledge for free, and people have the option to donate if they are able to, and people whose personal circumstances don’t allow them to buy books can still access them. In this way, nobody gets excluded from receiving spiritual information. You can read more about it here:

        I think you have summarised the situation very well Lucia and Geraldine. It’s a real pity that when people live in accordance with spiritual principles, this is so often seen as a sign of weakness, which can be exploited. The scale of this problem is prolific, but those who plagiarise this work for profit or personal gain not only cheat the original authors, but they also cheat other spiritual seekers and themselves, as they divert themselves and others from having the opportunity to take up the real work. Those who deceive others in this way ultimately lose, as there is no way someone can meet the requirements to move forward spiritually by acting like that.

        It is wonderful that despite the lack of ethics of so many people, that Mark and Lara and their publishers are still working hard to deliver the teachings without profit or personal gain. I have personally benefitted a lot from this principle, as when I found these teachings through attending courses in a study centre, I was able to participate regularly over a two-year period, despite having financial difficulties. There is no way I could have continued if the courses were part of a profit-making organisation. But then again, maybe I would have felt less drawn to learn spiritual teachings from a money-making organisation anyway, particularly from the kind of groups that charge extortionate amounts to access their secret teachings. I think that spiritual principles speak for themselves and the “open to all” ethic that I found in these teachings goes a long way.

      Hi Anastasia,

      I was going to also write something very similar to Lucia – it is definitely not about naivete but it comes from a very basic spiritual principle. The link she gave is actually really good if you have not read it yet, it goes in more details and it explains and lays out things very straight-forward.

      Mark first started with writing and handing out PDFs years and years ago, but people started back then to also plagiarism them, and changing the content or only giving partial information – so the content of the message was changed. For protection, the PDFs became books, that were published at cost. With the eBooks, sadly the same thing happened, and history repeated itself. The message is being changed, used to make profit or/and get fame by some people. And consequently the eBooks now have to be printed instead.

      People’s lack of ethics, integrity are the source of the problem. The problem is definitely not on the end of the authors, or their publisher Mystical Life Publications which now publishes the books at the lowest cost possible so that people can afford them, and they are doing a very good and fine job at that by the way, volunteering their time, effort to make this happen. (And Mark btw, has never ever been paid for his books).

      But it sad to see that the lack of ethics and integrity in people plagiarizing Mark’s books, ebooks, and work is costing people everywhere not being able to download the eBooks anymore.
      It is easy to see in this manner, how a simple action can have far reaching consequences for the entire world..

        Thank you for this clarification. I don’t think we truly understand the scope of this problem. It is a shame that Mark’s work has been so maligned and disrespected.
        I believe what you say is very true: there is a total lack of ethics and integrity in today’s world.

      Hi Bashir Shab,

      Sadly the books cannot be downloaded anymore. This is because people were taking the material from them and posting it as their own in other places. Here is a full explanation of the reasons why the e-books were taken down.

      Some of the books are being published on paper and in fact this book, The Awakening of Perception, is already available on Amazon. So if you want you can get it from there on paperback. 🙂

      Also, this website on its own has a lot of material available, check out the articles section for example.

      All the best.

    This book is an incredible compilation of articles and talks from this website. I’ve often found myself reading the same article more than once and each time I do, I gain a completely different, more insightful understanding of the message it conveys. It’s one of the most comprehensive and sensible “life” guides I’ve ever come across, helping me to better understand myself and others from a spiritual point of view that’s both practical and effective.
    Here is one of many excerpts taken from this book that has inspired me:
    “Many don’t know how to appreciate what they have or lack the understanding to learn from life’s difficulties and lessons – always thinking of the time things will work out, while ignoring the present moment and not valuing action or opposition. Many see the satisfaction of pleasure and desire as the fulfilment of a happy life, without realizing that everything passes, the moments of life are fleeting, and at the life’s end they have no more than they did at its beginning. Those with understanding use life for the benefit of the spirit and create and acquire what lasts beyond the body and the physical world”.
    ~ Belsebuub, taken from Chapter Thirteen: Depression and Feeling Down – From a Spiritual Point of View, (page 80)
