Four of Rudolf Steiner's best-loved lectures are collected in this book. They are some of the most accessible presentations of the anthroposophic approach to life available in English. Included are:
"Practical Training in Thought"
"The Four Temperaments"
The first lecture concerns the fundamental human activity of thinking. Everything we do, we do through thinking. The first task, then, is to realize the reality of thinking. To help us do this, Rudolf Steiner gives exercises that will allow us to experience the cognitive, even clairvoyant, power of thinking. Steiner shows us how exercises in thinking also give us the calm, centered sense we need to lead purposeful, healthy lives.
"Facing Karma" takes us to the heart of life, where we experience suffering and happiness. The law of karma that determines life's experiences and encounters also helps us develop the self-knowledge required for self-transformation.
Finally, Steiner discusses the four human temperaments, showing us how the union of hereditary factors and our inner spiritual nature both shape our psychology. The guide here is the ancient classifications of sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic, and melancholic temperaments. Our renewed understanding of these allows us to develop a truly modern spiritual psychology, which forms the basis of all real inner development.
With its many practical exercises, mantras, and meditations, this book offers fundamental introductions for anyone beginning or needing encouragement along the path of inner development.
What was hidden for almost two thousand years is finally revealed. Everyone has heard of symbols from the Revelation or Apocalypse of John, such as the Antichrist, the number 666, Armageddon, the end of days, the Rapture, the Second Coming, the four horsemen, and more. For centuries, Revelation has remained the most mysterious and interesting scripture of Christianity, filled with haunting imagery, powerful dramatic events, and frightening warnings for humanity, yet its true meanings were never permitted to be be revealed. John, an initiate of secret, esoteric Christianity, placed these cryptic symbols in Revelation as a "time capsule" to be opened on a future day, and in spite of countless theories and beliefs, the secrets of Revelation have been preserved behind their arcane language, awaiting the moment when they are most needed by humanity. That day has arrived. For the first time, the hidden secrets of Revelation are made clear and accessible to anyone. In The Aquarian Message, Samael Aun Weor shows how everything in Revelation and Christianity is based on Kabbalah (of which Jesus was a master), esoteric Christianity, alchemy, Tarot, and other ancient sciences. In this book you will discover that every symbol in Revelation is about you, your spiritual state, and the future it is taking you towards. You will discover how through deep personal change you can escape suffering and the approaching cataclysms, and instead enter into a superior level of experience. What John hid in Revelation was not something to believe, but something to experience for oneself. Now, with the practical teachings given in The Aquarian Message, you can. "We have studied the verses of the book of Revelation (Apocalypse) in the Superior Worlds. We give the result of our investigations in this book. Much has been said and written about the Apocalypse. However, only intellectual speculations have been made and the words of various authorities have been repeated. The present work is the result of tremendous esoteric investigations that were patiently performed by us in the Superior Worlds. We have found the Apocalypse to be divided into three parts: the first we have entitled The Son of Man, the second The Sealed Book and the third The New Jerusalem. The first part teaches the Path of the Razor s Edge. The second is related with the times of the end. The third tells us of the future earth. This is a book of practical christification. This is a book of transcendental esotericism and it is absolutely practical." Samael Aun Weor"
One of the hottest topics of discussion in the world today is the creation of the Earth. There are so many points of view from so many ages that nobody thought there would ever be one work that could explain it all. Until now. The Ark of Millions of Years is an ancient title. The authors have done this title justice by compiling and decoding all the schools of thought into one exciting work. From the Rabbi to the priest to the astronomer to the astro-physicist to the armchair archeologist, there is tremendous food here for all. You will see the scriptures as you have never seen them. You will understand the pyramids, the temples of the Yucatan, and the very stars in heaven as well as the greatest scholars. The prophecy has been fulfilled. Through space and time this book answers more questions and provides more understanding between its covers than anything written in any language. Period. Why? Because this work combines the works of a dozen ages into a landmark publication in the genre of world creation. If you''re thinking about writing a book, this will be in your bibliography. Each time you refer to its pages throughout your life you will learn something else about the nature of the universe, our earth, and perhaps your very soul. Knowing the origin of the earth, the scope of its present, and the potential of its future will add limitless power to your knowledge.
With Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson, G. I. Gurdjieff intended to "destroy, mercilessly . . . the beliefs and views about everything existing in the world." This novel beautifully brings to life the visions of humanity for which Gurdjieff has become esteemed. Beelzebub, a man of worldly (and other-worldly) wisdom, shares with his grandson the anecdotes, personal philosophies, and lessons learned from his own life.The reader is given a detailed discussion of all matters physical, natural, and spiritual, from the creation of the cosmos to man's teleological purpose in the universe. This edition of Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson--the first single-volume paperback to appear in English--restores the original, authoritative translation.
Volume II of The Best of the Equinox by Aleister Crowley, offers a treasure chest of dramatic rituals.
The Equinox became the standard for English language esotericism in the early 20th century, aptly termed the Encyclopedia of Initiation by its principal editor and contributor, Aleister Crowley.
