Love is knowing I am everything,

The following are quotes taken from the writings of Samael Aun Weor, the great XXth century Gnostic Master.

from the book Igneous Rose

We must learn to think with the heart and to feel with the head.

from the book Aztec Christic Magic

Cosmic initiations are reached by way of the heart, never by way of the intellect.

from the bookThe Great Rebellion

When one discovers the real cause of so much misery and bitterness, it becomes obvious that something can be done...

In life, the only thing of importance is a radical, total, and definitive change. The rest, frankly, is of no importance at all.

from the book Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

In order to be truly free, one needs to be sensitive and humane.

When the mind is conditioned by memory, it only repeats what it has accumulated. A mind conditioned by the experiences of so many yesterdays can only see the present through the cloudy lens of the past.

People who have very little spiritual values within, who are internally poor, always seek something external to make themselves complete.

The only thing that can transform the world is love; however, the mind destroys love. We need to study our own mind, to observe it, to profoundly investigate it, to truly comprehend it. Thus, only in this way, by becoming masters of ourselves, masters of our own mind, will we kill the killer of love; thus, we will become truly happy.

It is necessary to understand the beauty of kindness, to feel the beauty of good music, to love the beauty of creative art, to readjust our manner of thinking, feeling, and acting.

from the book Revolutionary Psychology

Cruelty will continue existing on the face of the Earth as long as we have not learned to put ourselves in the place of others.

The external is merely the reflection of the internal.  Therefore, whosoever changes internally originates a new order of things.

When the day one is living is taken as the totality of one’s life, when one does not leave for tomorrow what one must do this very day, then indeed one gets to know what the work on oneself really means.

Knowledge and comprehension are different.  Knowledge is of the mind.  Comprehension is of the heart.

In order to pass to a superior Level of Being, it is necessary to cease being what one is.  We need to not be what we are. If we continue being what we are, we will never pass to a superior Level of Being.

All things, all circumstances that occur outside ourselves, on the stage of this world, are exclusively the reflection of what we carry within. With good reason then, we can solemnly declare that the “exterior is the reflection of the interior.” When someone changes internally and if that change is radical, then circumstances, life, and the external also change.

The best weapon that a human being can use in life is a correct psychological state. One can disarm beasts and unmask traitors by means of appropriate internal states. Wrong internal states convert us into defenseless victims of human perversity. You must learn to face the most unpleasant events of practical life with an appropriate internal uprightness...You must not become identified with any event.  Remember that everything passes away.  You must learn to look at life like a movie; thus, you shall receive the benefits...

from the book The Revolution of the Dialectic

Every problem has been created by the mind and exists as long as the mind sustains it.

The exterior image of a human being and the diverse circumstances that surround him are the exact result of his interior image and of his psychological processes.

We live our entire miserable life going from one extreme to another: victory, defeat; like, dislike; pleasure, pain; failure, success; this, that, etc.  We need to free ourselves from the tyranny of the opposites. This is only possible by learning how to live from moment to moment without any type of abstractions, without any dreams and without any fantasies.

We have to learn to receive with gladness the unpleasant manifestations of our fellowmen


from the book The Initiatic Path in the Arcana of Tarot and Kabbalah

Those who only preoccupy themselves with their own spiritual progress and do not work for others achieve absolutely nothing.  Whosoever wants to progress must sacrifice the self for others.


from The Yellow Book

Be gentle in order to listen; merciful in order to judge.
