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 [...]

Not everything occult is evil; the light has its hidden knowledge too

It's not just great that people searching for truth look into the occult roots behind many world events, it's absolutely essential for understanding the deeper mysteries of human history. But everyone who I've seen speak about it names every esoteric group they can find and lumps them all together - branding them as "satanic" and as sharing the same sinister agenda. This kind of claim is bigoted and ignorant. Throughout human history there have existed undercurrents of people who have explored the hidden side of life. There are those who have used this knowledge for sinister purposes - to control and exploit others. Whilst there are those who've used esoteric knowledge for good - and have contributed greatly to the freedoms and principles of entire civilizations. Both often work in secrecy - the malevolent to hide their true motives, the benevolent to avoid the persecution of the ignorant and the agendas of the dark side operating within society. The word occult simply means hidden or secret, and in common use it refers to metaphysical phenomena, which are things we become aware of that are beyond our ordinary perception. Those who label everything esoteric or occult as evil are inadvertently or [...]

Why We Have a Need to Know About the Esoteric

Esoteric knowledge has played a fundamental role in many civilizations throughout history, including our own, and yet the UK is looking to censor “esoteric material” across the internet by the end of this year. This is not being spoken about openly, and is likely to set a precedent for other proposed internet filters around the world, as the UK’s filter appears to have already been influenced by the French company Orange’s filtering of “esoteric practices” and “universally acknowledged sects” in the UK. It may not be immediately apparent to most people as to what the implications of this are, and it seems at some level there is an attempt to take advantage of the lack of understanding of what the word “esoteric” actually means. To many people, “esoteric” denotes something obscure, incoherent and belonging to the old libraries of mystical texts, and even as something negative to be feared. But in reality it is literally all around us and absolutely crucial to the understanding of our collective human history and experience. This is the reason why its censorship is so dangerous and should be ringing alarm bells for everybody. Esoteric is simply a word that denotes something “hidden” and understandable [...]

Why Enlightenment Takes Time – New Article

Photo by Sam Mgrdichian on Unsplash Enlightenment means different things to different people; most of us have different versions of what it is and how it occurs. In some descriptions it happens in an instant, perhaps as a realization of something, or as a result of doing a certain practice, or by a divine intervention. What the term means to me is the ancient and even timeless universal process of the return of consciousness to its source. Although there are different versions of enlightenment, that’s fine, it’s just worth recognizing that we don’t all necessarily mean the same thing when we say it. It would be great if we could all be conscious of the present moment and connect with the universal source consciousness and hence become enlightened, realizing we are all one, all that is and will be, and there’s nothing more to do. The problem with this though is that there is no fundamental change to the nature of consciousness nor does in return to its source - in other words, nothing actually happens. It helps to understand something more about the nature of consciousness than thinking or theorizing about it can give, and that requires [...]

Reestablishing the Feminine in Godhead – New Article

The goddess Isis feeding the Ankh of eternal life to an Egyptian Queen. In recent decades there has been a lot of debate as to whether God is a man or woman, or genderless. However, it starts to become obvious when looking through history in the Western world and in many other cultures, that God is primarily seen as a male e.g. the Christian Trinity. So why do so many hold this view, and have for thousands of years? Is it correct? And what kind of effect could this have had upon our society and the place of women in it? Many might say that this simply doesn't matter, but could it be much more important than people think, and could its consequences already have had an impact on our own everyday lives? This article explores just where the concept of an all male Godhead came from, and how the female should be an essential part of it.

The Churning of the Milky Ocean – New Article

For anyone interested in higher consciousness, this is a principle worth understanding. It shows how darkness and the struggle against it are essential elements in creation, enlightenment, and in living a worthwhile life. This principle of the Churning of the Milky Ocean is illustrated in the ancient Hindu text the Mahabharata. Whoever wishes to be part of the forces of light and good in the world, and whoever wishes to bring the light of consciousness within themselves will face opposition. Instead of seeing opposition simply as a detriment to spiritual growth, it’s more realistic to see it as an essential element of spiritual growth. By understanding the principle of the churning of the milky ocean we learn to use darkness to generate light. If there was only light there would be nothing to learn, it would be a form of blindness, its only darkness that gives shadow and allows form to be manifest and therefore visible. This is an excerpt from the article, read the full article here.

Experience Spiritual Realities, Don’t Just Think About Them

Photo by radu emanuel on Unsplash Imagine you had never felt angry, how much would you understand about anger? Imagine your eyes had never seen, what would you know of sight? If you haven't experienced spiritual and cosmic realities you wouldn't know of them either, but it's easy to confuse knowing and thinking when it comes to spiritual matters and thinking alone easily results in a belief system. In spiritual terms thinking is the result of thought, while knowing is the result of experience. There's a tendency to look up to great thinkers in order to understand spiritual realities. But distinguish between great thinkers and great knowers. Great thinkers are great at thinking, great knowers are great at experiencing. A knower can think, but a thinker without experience is blind. Thinking about something is different from experiencing it. Therefore: think and know, don't just think. And don't be misled by those who just think.
