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.

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 focusing on getting the books Mark is writing on the path out as soon as we can though. That’s why we may seem to be quiet in terms of blogs and videos, as we’ll be working on the books, which take a lot of time each day to carefully write, research, and put together.

There are so many other things we are planning to do beyond this, but we feel these books are so important to finally complete and release, and so will be working on them as our first priority.

Thank you to all of you who have supported us, and thus helped enable what we provide. We so appreciate the opportunities we have to continue working, writing, and creating.

Some other things we have planned include reviving more of the ancient ceremonies, rituals, and practices of the ancient Religion of the Sun, creating specialized ceremonies for those who would like to celebrate the solstice and equinox on their own, and putting together a special project for making contact with extra-terrestrials. Obviously we have a lot to do and look forward to.

We wish you all a magical time over the solstice, and all the very best for the new year.

    Hi Lara (and Belsebuub),

    how amazing, and exiting…Looking forward to the new books, more information on solstice and equinox celebrations, as well as making contact with ET’s…

    Thank you Lara for the update. Thank you and Mark so deeply for all the work you’re doing, it’s a valuable help. Mark’s writing and words always grab and speak directly into my heart, giving me strength and helping me awake. All the information about the ceremonies, solstices and the ancient religion of the Sun is incredible inspiring. It inspires also hearing about the new project making contact with extraterrestrials, looking forward for it.

    Wishing you both and everyone the best for the new year.

    Thank you Lara for sharing this wonderful announcement about the progress of the upcoming books detailing Mark’s experience of walking the path of the spiritual sun.

    The Path of the Spiritual Sun is already a unique and precious resource in the world, which ties together the threads of many different spiritual traditions into a coherent whole. But the book also provides a perspective that academic writers can’t give, which is the knowledge that Mark gained from first-hand experience of following the same path that spiritual figures have walked throughout the history of humanity.

    This new set of books will add even more depth to the existing material, by clearly demonstrating that the goal of returning to source is achievable for anyone who wishes to apply this work fully to their lives. As well as being inspired by the depth of esoteric experience, which has been shared via this site and its various resources over the years, I have also been motivated and encouraged by the realisation that this work is for ordinary people to do, which Mark has often highlighted throughout his talks and writing.

    His current online biography already demonstrates clearly that whatever a person’s circumstances may be, there is still hope to move forward. It also shows that by using the tools to gain self-knowledge, we can transform otherwise crippling adversities into a source of learning and wisdom.

    Having tried many avenues to find happiness throughout my life, I’ve realised that without a strong foundation of inner change, most achievements in life are ultimately valueless, as although they may bring material benefits even for many years, all of this becomes insignificant in the context of eternity.

    It’s awe-inspiring that through Mark’s own efforts to gain self-knowledge, he is now in a unique position in the world to pass on a comprehensive guide, which anyone can take up. It’s also incredible to think that copies of the books, which are now being completed, could potentially provide the same tools to awaken for an entirely new humanity, even thousands of years into the future, just as the discovery of The Nag Hammadi library in the last century unearthed a spiritual treasure trove, which shed new light on the Christian teachings nearly two thousand years after Jesus’ death.

    But whereas the effects of time passing unfortunately destroyed some parts of those ancient texts, rendering them incomplete, or making their meaning obscure, I feel that we are now in quite a privileged position, as despite the rampant materialism of this era, we will soon have access to a complete and easily understandable spiritual resource, which any of us can apply to our lives.

    I wish you both every success in getting this important message to the world and hope that it can help many people to transform their consciousness in a way that lasts beyond the duration of the physical body. I also look forward to the additional projects that have been planned and wish you and everyone practicing this spiritual work a strong year ahead.

    Thanks for the update Lara. This is very inspiring to read and it must be a huge job for Mark to write that much, and for you to do research. The prior book, The path of the spiritual sun is already a very detailed book bringing many resources into one bundle. I’m looking forward to the books that follow and I wish you and Mark all the support and help you need.

    That’s very interesting news for the new year. It becomes a precious present for all those who seek inspiration and enlightenment in the middle of this labyrinth of information and books about spiritual, a work by someone who can give an authentic map reviving the path of the spiritual sun from his own experience. Thank you Lara, Mark and everyone around you for the update and what you do.

    Thank you Lara for the update. I am also very grateful for Belsebuub’s books. They cover topics that are very relevant to my life and enable me to communicate with my own heart. I am particularly grateful for the ceremonies given in the Path of the Spiritual Sun. Through focusing on them I have been able to read The Path of the Spiritual Sun in a more active way and get more out of it.

    Other than that I am wondering whether there is any way that I can contribute to your work through research into my own culture.

    Thank you Lara for the great news, and for all that Mark and yourself do and hope for all of us through the projects ahead.

    Mark just wanted to let you know how inspiring, uplifting and understanding your words are and how much I appreciate your explanations. I have written on a note on my desk something you said about the things we go through in life, in one of your many wonderful talks you have given, that helps me a great deal, which is to ‘put it into the context of the awakening’ and its a great reminder for me to make use of what I am go through from day to day, as that moment will pass and with it the opportunity to have learnt.

    Your book, The Path of the Spiritual Sun, for me is like a treasure and gift to all of us as a humanity of what we once were and what we can be again, and your book Searchin Within is a gift to the human heart that uplifts us and gives us a way to understanding, and I can’t thank you enough for how valuable that is.

    Wishing you and Lara a very happy solstice and look forward to your new works.

      I too find Belsebuub’s words and writing a great support. It seems the difficulties and challenges we all face in life when we try do an inner work are similar in principle to those along the path, though on different scales. So then to have Mark’s insights on how to face things, from his writing and from his story, becomes invaluable guidance to carry with us.

      For me also, due to Belsebuub putting them into context, ancient sacred writings become alive! “…and as it is spent, so shall it be replenished.” These things also stay with you, the wisdom an inspiration and something you’re in awe of when hearing it, and then also a guide as we start to see these principles in the experience of our own life.

      The ceremonies of the spirituality of the sun too. I’m looking at an image right now. Of someone representing the Heavenly Father and someone representing the Mother Goddess, looking out over a vast predawn valley. There’s a message in it. Because the ceremonies and symbols are representations of divine events, and nature and life. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to gain insights and be able to learn about life from seeing this spiritual wisdom manifested around us, through these ceremonies.

      …Another year has started. Let’s go for it!!!

    Very apt image. I hope that with continued work things can strongly bloom, blossom and reach out.

    Thanks for relaying this message about what is being worked on by you behind the scenes. I can see why sometimes it’s good to decide to more fully focus one’s attention on a project in order to be able to finish it.Wishing you all the best every single day with your work on it! I know that body of work is going to be quite something…. and I truly hope that in time it gets its place in society and will be accessible to people searching for the spiritual work to become alive.

    Hope you, and others too, had a solstice time of deep connection to the spiritual side.

    Hi Lara,

    Like others have mentioned, thank you for this uplifting update. Its hard to grasp what it would be like to receive a complete guide to enlightenment, but having a record of the path layed out by someone like Mark, who is at such a far if not almost complete stage of the work, will be an incredible and priceless gift.

    It would be equally incredible to become a supportive link to all the work being done, by our own example, and through deeds of love.

    May everything you do reach far and wide!

    Wow , its a great dawn for spiritual seekers that are open minded and adventurous in a spiritual sense. Belsebuub ‘s work and books are a true gem and a waxing light in this dark world we find ourselves in. How fortunate i am to be exposed to this spiritual work, how many people seek authentic spirituality but never find it , its mind boggling and i am humbled to merely just be aware of this. I wish much strength to the master of our times , you are the light and hope, keep fighting for us, cannot thank you enough. Also to the team and Lara , thank you as well and i would like to pitch an idea on you guys starting a podcast ! Podcast is a growing channel to get to masses and its popular because of versatility in the sense a person can listen to it anywhere and would give much encouragement and motivation to all who are trying to revolve their lives around this apiritual work . Just my 2 cents . Thank you!!!

      Hi Lama,

      I agree that podcasts are a great tool. I’ve got a lot from Belsebuub’s various talks over the years, so thought you’d appreciate some of the links below, as there’s a wealth of information about a wide range of spiritual topics, which are covered in this website. I used to listen to a talk each day for many years and really got a boost from them, especially during difficult times.

      The video and talks sections of this site archive Belsebuub’s weekly interactive podcasts, which were broadcast over several years. You can listen to or download some of his radio interviews on Stitcher, which are also available on a YouTube channel:
      Then there is another YouTube channel, which covers video recordings from past retreats, interviews, documentaries, video podcasts etc.:

      There’s literally hours of material to go through and I’m sure you’ll get a lot from it. I hope you find those links useful and I wish you all the best in your spiritual search.

    It’s great to hear there’s more guidance to come that will help us connect to the spirituality of the sun. Here, embarking on the winter solstice period, I know how precious this teaching is and only hope for it to grow and reach more people around the world searching for the light. Mention of a project to get in contact with extraterrestrials gives me goosebumps – look forward to that being revealed!

    All these, the ceremonies, the information and practises about the religion of the Spiritual Sun is a big help and inspiration.

    Thank you, Mark and Lara, for thinking of us, because of the quiet period before. I’m one of those who really looking forward to updates and new works to come out but honestly, this quiet time is also quite useful as well to see what I can do without the boost from you and your projects’ developments.

    The new series of books you are preparing sounds like another epic work to me and I think couldn’t be otherwise since is going together with the even more epic work to revive the ancient religion of the sun.
    I wish you have all the time, peace and strength to complete this project!

    Specialized ceremonies and about making contact with ET sounds also very interesting and really looking forward seeing what you will come up with.

    A magical solstice time for you too and best wishes for the new year ahead with all the support you need!
