We have been exploring, this past year or so, the various conditions and challenges that appear to the aspirant on the journey to knowing, the hurdles and portals that manifest to irritate, undermine and provoke us into confronting the shadows of their mystery and lighting them up with our own illumination.

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth are believed to have been written by the Egyptian god Thoth some 36,000 years ago. There are sources that say Hermes Trismegistus might have been their true author. The tablets say that Hermes was an incarnation of Thoth. The tablets tell a tale of a great journey from Atlantis to […]
Learning to consciously go out of body is one of the greatest spiritual adventures you will have in this physical lifetime on Earth. As your astral body leaves your physical body, you can experience what it’s like to live above the laws of physics and explore without limit. It’s truly an outer and inner adventure. […]
When Higher Self envisions us, it sees divine beings lost in belief systems. Systems like democracy, progress, agriculture, manufacturing, worshipful subservience to science, prophets and deities.

As we explore the various highways and biways of the esoteric teachings that guide our inner journeys, we eventually come to the notion that some souls are ‘young’ and others ‘mature’ or ‘old’. The distinctions manifest in a number of ways. One is derived from the discussions arising from life-between-life regressions where some recall careful planning with guides for the upcoming incarnation, while others tend to rush in enthusiastically without much forethought, often hell bent on resuming a life dramatically cut short by violence, accident or addiction. The feeling of being denied one’s life experiences through trauma and tragedy can be overwhelming, often dominating the ‘bliss’ potentials of astral life.
As we move along our inner journeys towards what we assume is deeper understanding of the enigmas and mysteries of our real lives, sometimes racing along without the least bit of resistance, sometimes stumbling about, absentmindedly looking for clues, we come across mentions of the Higher Self, the Monad, the source self, a being whose existence seems as remote as archangels and ascended masters to our apprentice ears, about as distant as a PhD to a kid in grade five.

And why would he do that, you ask. Well, apparently just for the experience. Or, in mountain climbing terms, because it’s there.”
