https://youtu.be/oUAYKr4d6sk There are different kinds of goals, They could be upon living an ordinary life, or enlightenment. To set our sights on the spiritual rather than the material Requires faculties beyond the five senses. To set our goal as the spiritual, requires an awakening of those faculties, Then we can see beyond the physical world, Then our experience of life is not just limited to this three dimensional existence. If someone has a clear out-of-body experience for the first time They face a different kind of reality. It’s a new experience of living. Unless it’s clouded by the subconscious, it’s a real experience And that experience is part of our life and who we are. We go into the life beyond this one every night when we sleep, We come into this world and body from there And we go back there and return there every night. So which is real, there, or here, or both? This is temporary and is within time. From a talk by Belsebuub in a park in the San Francisco Bay Area in April 2009.
Matthew Manning in the 1970's Psychic experiences are the perception of reality that is greater than the ordinary perception of the five senses. Just as an ant can see only part of reality through its simple compound eyes, so too the human body is limited in what it can perceive. It does however have capacities that are latent and seldom used, which give us the ability to see more. Back in the early or mid 1970’s the Daily Mirror, a national newspaper in the UK, put on a psychic experiment. The details aren’t so clear now as it’s a long time ago, but I decided to join in. A well known psychic at the time called Matthew Manning went to the Post Office tower in London I think it was, and broadcasted a series of things with his mind. Participants had to try to ‘see’ what he was broadcasting. At the appropriate time, I held a pencil and a notebook and closed my eyes. I began to draw a series of items including a house, a number, and other things. I also picked up on flags flying around the place, which weren’t in the test. After the experiment, [...]
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 [...]
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 personal esoteric experience. To give some examples: to [...]
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.

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 evening I set out to explore the words of Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita “The mind of him, who is trying to conquer it, is forcibly carried away in spite of his efforts, by his tumultuous senses. Restraining them all, let him meditate steadfastly on Me; for who thus conquers his senses achieves perfection. “ I sat comfortably and tried to see what it is to meditate on Krishna, who is the Christ. In the past I’ve concentrated my mind and reached meditation- perfect silence whereby I left behind the body, mind, and emotions to enter into the light that casts no shadows, the illuminated void. But this meditation that Krishna refers to is quite different; he refers to meditating upon him in the actions of life, not being out of the body, so I wanted to learn something about what he meant by meditating upon Krishna. I quietened the body and looked for a way to meditate on him. I sought to concentrate my mind, so I thought of him, but my thoughts were not him. I visualized him, imagined various forms of light, but I realized this was only my imagination and not him. So I immersed [...]
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.
A new article has just been added about death, NDE's and ghosts, it's a talk from 2009, you can find it here.
Just be, and be part of a constant evolutionary you, everything is as it should be. Do you really believe it? If you do, think again, there's a lot more going on inside you than you realize, and its not all good. Read the article in the Esoteric Wisdom section on the articles page, its from a talk in Oregon in 2009. It looks at the influences of forces of darkness upon the human psyche.
There is a difference between spiritual experience, and ideas, if ideas are based upon theoretical assumptions they are simply beliefs. In the work of self-realization there are esoteric principles to be understood and lots of changes to make, it takes dedication and it doesn't happen easily or quickly. Taken from a talk in 2009.
