To Thine Own Self Be True 01 Know Your True Self

4/20/2024
It is possible to know the breadth, depth, and complexities of humanity by exploring our own psychology, since each individual is a reflection or microcosm of the external world. Conventional wisdom also encourages conformity to society while acknowledging its possible costs: the end of originality, the loss of beauty, the corruption of innocence, and the weakening of virtue. By identifying three constituents of psychological experience (consciousness, defects, and personality) in relation to specific events, it becomes possible to awaken our true nature, modify our personal experiences, improve our relationships, master our full potential, and produce positive results within all domains of our life.

Gnostic Gospels | Beyond Good and Evil in The Gospel of Judas

3/16/2024

Gnostic Kabbalah 04 The Universal Tree of Life

3/4/2024
Gnostics utilize kabbalah for its profundity, accessibility, and synthetic power. When consciously utilized, kabbalah becomes incredibly practical for interpreting diverse religious symbolism, creation stories, and the development of the soul. Contrary to popular assumption, the tree of life is not merely a Jewish paradigm, but an essential, eternal, and universal representation within all cosmologies and mythologies. A continuation of Kabbalah: The Legacy of the Initiates, this lecture will explore the mystical significance of divine life in the kabbalistic tree, the ten sephiroth (spiritual emanations), and how specific Hebrew letters, words, and names relate to aspects of being, Hinduism, Arthurian legend, Nordic runes, Tantric Buddhism, and much more.

Gnostic Gospels | Transcendent Betrayal in The Gospel of Judas

1/27/2024
The controversial Gospel of Judas is a powerful scripture depicting the relationship between betrayal and transcendence. While religious groups intensely, fearfully, and dogmatically contest its authenticity, this scripture is clarified through a comparative study of Samael Aun Weor's writings. Just as an actor plays a part in a film and should not be condemned for it, likewise the Apostle Judas should not be denigrated for the role he played in a necessary cosmic drama led by Jesus, the Master Aberamentho. By understanding who Judas is in us, we can better understand the ways we betray our own selves while striving for divine reality.
