Spiritual scriptures – including the Bible – tell of things that happen inside us, not outside. The Kingdom of Heaven is inside and all other spiritual things too. How many religious misunderstandings could this truth put away with if collectively accepted… Tony Wyss-Coray doesn’t surprise when he suggests that the Fountain of Youth is inside, … Read more
You need something sacred in your life, something that can’t be defiled, something you can return to in difficult times, something that gives you solace and inspiration.
One of the first spiritual truths an aspirant learns is that all the power that ever was or will be is here now. And that the limitless light is at the aspirant’s disposal. He has access to a magical spirit of Biblical powers that can move mountains and eclipse the universe if he so wills. It’s the stuff of which the heavens and earth were made.
That magical power complies to our thoughts and feelings. It does everything we ask it. And we don’t need to learn how to use it. It works automatically, just like our body. The thing is, we don’t always use it for good. Why? Because of our wrong thoughts and negative feelings. The all-power responds to those by creating negative experiences. Hence, dissolution is the secret of the great work, the dissolution of negative mental patterns.
A post-mortem guest post by Paul Foster Case about the mystery of the inner fire, the source energy of enlightenment. A priceless spiritual gem indeed.
Kabbalistic interpretation of the letter [Heh, the letter associated with Tarot card 4] emphasizes the outward movement of the personalized consciousness.

Comparative anatomy has demonstrated that man has the most complex brain-machinery for seeing. In man vision has reached its highest development.
No one will deny that this development has been a dominant influence in human progress. When we call knowledge “enlightenment” we bear witness that we civilize ourselves by seeing. Civilization is the fruit of science, and trained vision leads to scientific discovery. This is just as true of the civilization now being established through the spread of occult science as it is of that which is the product of purely physical investigation. To discover the laws of superphysical planes, one must have eyes to see the facts of those planes; hence one of the principle aims of occult training is to develop a higher faculty of sight, now latent in most people, that enables its possessor to see things invisible to the untrained man.
