Instinctively, we all know at our core that forgiveness is a positive expression of spiritual living, but is forgiveness simply a nice philosophy to live by or does it hold some greater value, value underscoring a necessity, not preference, of its expression? Forgiveness means to for-give, i.e., to pardon, to cease to hold resentment, to cancel a debt. In other words, to forgive is to let go and not cling.

A General Look at Alchemy Part 1

Alchemy, according to esoteric writers, is said to be the invention of an ancient Egyptian sage called Hermes Trismegistus. The “Father of Alchemy” lived in an unknown age of Egyptian history, though he is thought by some Rosicrucian schools to have lived during the time of Moses and the Exodus of the Israelites. If true, being an Initiate of the mysteries of Isis and Osiris, Moses must have been tutored by Hermes himself, which later enabled him to carry out his mission and to realize his I AM Presence symbolised by the burning bush.

We are unable to take along with us our house, our money, our possessions, our titles, etc. What we do take along are things that are immaterial–our knowledge, our memories, our karma, our habits, our character, our spiritual and psychic development, our aspirations and desires. We can see from this that our purpose in this world, in this physical plane is in connection with those immaterial things mentioned above, and if–and metaphysics declare it to be so–evolution is a law of Nature, a Cosmic law, then our true purpose is to evolve, to improve …

Approaching Metaphysics Part 1

Before one approaches seriously the study of metaphysics, magick, the occult, or mysticism, it is appropriate that one prepares oneself on all levels: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. It is of vital importance that the student be psychologically prepared for the reception of Cosmic truths; for without adequate preparation, without the required purity, the right attitude and the right motive, one simply deludes or sidetracks oneself from all that which is essential in occult study to those phenomena and teachings that are unessential, delusive, and misleading; to phenomena that simply strengthen one’s hold in a world of illusion, glamour, pride and ego; aside from this, should one attempt occult work without due preparation one exposes oneself to certain dangers which …
