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 that processes the multidimensional psyche into physical responses that control our body in the physical world. The brain is of fundamental importance to who we are here.

But what many normally consider to be the results of the brain are actually the causes of much of its activity, as our psyche is functioning in higher dimensions and is simultaneously influencing this one. Thoughts, emotions, and feelings are actually fifth-dimensional, but they require the three-dimensional mechanism of the brain and body not only to manifest in the physical world, but also to interact with it. And so the three-dimensional affects the higher and the higher affects the lower simultaneously.

The brain is the vehicle that allows the psyche to exist and function in the physical world, but the psyche is not simply the result of the processes of the brain—it exists in the absence of brain activity as can be seen in near-death experiences. At the same time, the psyche obviously cannot exist in the world without a brain, and neither can consciousness develop without it.

    I stumbled across this talk again today.
    I so needed to hear this today. I have felt like I have been literally hammered from all corners at the moment, and it feels like the difficulties and challenges will just not abide. And I cannot see the end in sight.

    This talk has been uplifting and encouraging. It is just what I needed to hear.

    Thank you so much Belsebuub. I would be lost without your words.

      I’m sorry to hear about your recent difficulties Paty. I can relate to the feeling of not being able to see the end in sight, when challenges and suffering continue for a prolonged time, with no visible sign of change.

      I agree with what you said about this and other talks by Belsebuub being just what’s needed during difficult times though. I’ve found the same when going through significant difficulties. Belsebuub has a way of speaking in a universal way, which can touch each of us and provide a much needed boost, despite the differences in the individual circumstances we may be going through.

      Going through significant challenges is seldom a pleasant experience, but I very much hope that you will be able to use the situations for learning, and gain a greater sense of motivation and encouragement to move forwards. If you can go through these current situations without getting drawn into the tricks of the subconscious and its lower emotions, I think it will give you a confidence to know that it’s possible to face greater challenges in the future, as you will have a victory and experience to stand upon.

      I wish you lots of strength and guidance in going through the challenges you’re currently facing Paty, along with a lot of wisdom to make the right choices.

    This video is very motivating, i have found many times where i have been struggling and demoralised.
    Thankyou Belsebuub for such inspiration, i hope that i can find the understanding to put this into practise much more.

    I remember it was my question which lead off Marks response in that particular talk. After 6 years his response is still so very true. I remember where I was spiritually at that time as well, the challenges I was facing. It’s good to reflect on that, Belsebuubs answer and where I am with my work now.

    Thanks for bringing this video back around to us so we can get the message once again.

      It was a good question that you asked.

      It seems to be the power of Mark’s consciousness to say things in such a way that their essence stays true in this constantly changing world. For me it is hard to get demoralized, but easy to get overconfident. Both things are inner defects that slower down the progress…

      Yes, it is so important to strive for objectivity, to see a bigger pictures of things and just “keep going”, whatever it means in one’s circumstances.

    Thanks so much for this inspirational video.

    I came across a poem of Rumi that goes along the same lines, called Childhood friends.
    Ill quote a section of it.

    “He took the mirror out from his robe where he was hiding it.
    What is the mirror of being? Non-being. Always bring a mirror of non-existence
    as a gift. Any other present is foolish.
    Let the poor man look deep into generosity. Let bread see a hungry man.
Let kindling behold a spark from the flint.
    An empty mirror and your worst destructive habits, when they are held up to each other,
that’s when the real making begins.
That’s what art and crafting are.
    A tailor needs a torn garment to practice his expertise. The trunks of trees must be cut and cut again
 so they can be used for fine carpentry.
    Your doctor must have a broken leg to doctor.
 Your defects are the ways that glory gets manifested. Whoever sees clearly what’s diseased in himself begins to gallop on the way.”

    The Essential Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks, page 141

    This is such a beautifully inspiring and encouraging talk. It really feels like a kind and loving parent is teaching you the way.

    It is as powerful now as it was back then.

    Thanks so much for sharing this with us again 🙂

    Thank you Mark for this motivating and inspiring talk. Many times it seems so difficult to avoid getting stuck and neglect the entire attempt of working with a specific defect. Annoying emotions arise, dissapointment arises as well, pushing to a situation where you don’t even know where you stand. Really inspiring your words, coming from your personal experience.

    Thank you Mark for this talk. It seems like it is one of the most important messages of the spiritual work. I find it all too common to see the spiritual work through positive experiences and negative experiences. When we are doing well, and when we are doing poor. To embrace the light, and to scorn the darkness. It is hard to get out of this duality, and only seek good times, and to dwell, or be afraid of the hardship, until the blow of difficulty arrives and we get stuck in a rut, demoralised, and desperate, only to later realise that this is the true knowledge we are after. That we need to extract meaning and understanding from everything, and live beyond good and evil. That those emotions, thoughts, words and actions, that make us look ugly and evil, are precisely what we are after, and what we need to see and change.

    It is a very refreshing, and courageous message that I also find present in what you write about in the Path of the Spiritual Sun, namely the spring equinox ceremony, and the role both darkness and light have on the person who is after awakening. Psalm 23:4 also brings to light the courage to face the darkness without fearing it:

    ”I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

    As others have mentioned, thank you for the hope and encouragement, in showing how possible and tangible the events of life can be for our own awakening.

    Thanks very much for posting this talk, it really did give a big boost. It is very easy to become demoralised when struggling with egos, even getting disorientated and losing that ‘thread’ that can guide you through the dark. Thanks very much for putting it into a realistic context, even a motivating one, that by facing those seemingly immovable egos we’re learning about ourselves and it’s a part of moving forward inwardly. Your own story about struggling with something was very encouraging that it can actually be done.

    It’s been great to be able to revisit these talks once again. Thank you very much for everything.

    Thanks for posting this uplifting talk. It was certainly what I needed to hear to give me a helpful boost, especially after feeling a bit discouraged and overwhelmed lately.

    Thanks for all the encouragement, I really appreciate this video, the brotherly advice. As relevant now as it was when it was given.

    I feel quite very sad though that 7 years ago was the last public talk. And despite everything your giving still continues. I hope you have all the support you need to keep giving and that all the appreciative community here can help make things right for some sort of public talks again some day.

      Hi david,

      I never had the opportunity of being around for any of the talks belsebuub gave, must have been very inspiring 🙂 I too hope that one day, we will be worthy of some kind of public talk.

      In saying that all the information and knowledge that is given to us on this website is amazing and has helped me a great deal in life so far. For this i am always grateful for his sacrifice and hope to participate to the best of my ability.

        Hi Chris, these videos of past talks are just as inspiring as when they were given and reach out across time in their relevance. In a way its like a public talk is being given again albeit a past one. At the time they were video broadcasts so seeing the recordings again now is pretty much the same.

    This is really good to hear. Sometimes it feels as though there is no way i can get rid of a certain ego but with this kind of support and encouragement you giving us it’s much easier to just carry on with the fight.. .

    This video is so perfectly timed, lately i have been struggling a great deal with defects that seem to be there constantly. This has given me a great understanding and strength to keep pushing forward, struggling against the darkness inside.

    Thank you very much for all the encouragement, Mark. This particular talk is really helpful. I’ve been finding that often it’s hard to keep the overall focus on the awakening in mind when I’m struggling — I mean beyond the mental understanding / vague expectations / distant memories of past experiences. Especially when you’re losing battles and the spiritual feelings and experiences aren’t there enough to keep you focused in the way you describe. Strange how you’re working on yourself for a specific reason, yet the reason can become elusive and you just end up tangled up in the struggle instead, almost forgetting to poke out of the “fray” to see reality and remember why you’re doing what you’re doing to begin with… Anyways, thank you for the helpful tips and the encouragement to keep at it. Much appreciated.

    So pertinent, to keep going, studying, learning, changing. When trying that, a talk from Belsebuub like this is such a wave of support. Thank you!

    It’s incredible how much I’ve received and learned from Belsebuub’s audio’s and videos over the years and the guidance I’ve taken in from it.

    So many good insights and so clearly presented. Thank you very much! Yeah, the more you do it, the more you just see how everything needs to be put into the context of the path to Awakening…everything… and we need to be very realistic about what it really takes to succeed with the Work.

    It can be so demoralizing and at times completely overwhelming when facing this endless stream of darkness, but we have no choice but to get back up and push forward. Only in true prayer do I feel peace and I long to stay connected in everything single moment.

    Thanks Mark for all that you do for us, hopefully we can learn.

    Somehow, no matter how many times Mark has explained the processes we undergo, I still find myself knocked around by what I see within. This talk in particular has made clear the importance of lifting myself up no matter how many times I’m knocked down.

    I tend to look at what Mark has achieved and it seems so remote as to be beyond my capability. In sharing the story of his own setback and struggles it somehow seems achievable again. Thank you.

      I also find it really helpful how naturally Mark describes struggling with an ego. It is something that we all face, yet I can see how Mark’s approach shows persistence and a lot of dedication to overcoming egos. This talk shows a very human side to Mark’s teachings.
