The Obscure Night

There is not one single Avatar, Messiah, Master, or Prophet who has not alluded to a period of great confusion which, at one time or another during his or her quest, every Seeker must confront and, if possible, overcome. I expressly say “if possible,” for it may happen that the Obscure Night will prevent us […]

These inner and outer communications are said to originate from one’s Higher Self. The Higher Self is the pure Self at the core of one’s being. It is the true centre […]

Loneliness and the spiritual path

There are times in life when friends and family may surround us and yet we still feel so very much alone. At other times, we are lonely because we live alone and spend a lot of time on our own. One form of loneliness is circumstantial, in which, for a variety of reasons, many people […]

I have learned…

Lessons are not reserved to the classroom or to a time when we were once enrolled as students in a school. Lessons continue in all aspects of our lives. As Mystics and Seekers on the spiritual path, the phrase ‘life is the greatest teacher’ should not be overlooked. No matter our age and regardless of the […]
