Is the Kalam cosmological argument (as expanded by William Lane Craig) compatible with Platonic Polytheism? This first cause being the cause of everything, including the forms? There is a term coined by medieval philosophers "aeveternity" which means had a beginning but has no end. Also, the forms do not cause something into existence, they are just transcendental principles into which things partake.

I know this is not what you believe, but I genuinely want to know if you think the Kalam cosmological argument can be reconciled with Platonic Polytheism?

General LHP Discussion / How often do you perform rituals?
« on: January 26, 2018, 11:36:06 am »
How often do you perform rituals approximately? Or, if you're into direct magick (vampirism, healing, etc) how often do you practice / perform it?

When it comes to the occult, aside from practicing & researching, there are two things I like to do:

1. Oppose dogma

2. Experiment

On one side of the spectrum, you'll hear from ceremonial magicians who are extremely superstitious that you need to do everything by the book, and that you need to perform all these complex and elaborate rituals in order to come into contact with a metaphysical entity.

On the other, you have magicians (such as chaos magicians and magicians over at Become a Living God) who claim that anything goes. "Nothing is true; everything is permitted."

Through my workings, I have come to realize that the latter category of magicians is correct. But, unlike most magicians, I am taking a step further.

I say that rituals are not necessary. I say that trance state is not necessary either (it helps but it's not a must). I say that evocation as it's commonly understood is bunk!

Metaphysical entities are Platonic Forms. They do not have a location; they don't reside in some mystical kingdom and get teleported when you start performing a ritual to evoke them. Rather, the metaphysical entities are spaceless and eternal. For as long as you have a connection with a particular Form, that Form can be interacted at all times, whenever. They're everywhere, and nowhere.

So let's take the Prince of Darkness as an example. He is the Form of Consciousness, The Higher Mind. You are in constant connection with him, by definition. All you have to do in order to get in touch with him is think about him. Now, though I've said trance is not necessary, focus is a must.

Sit down, close your eyes, and start thinking about the Prince of Darkness. Think of the things you associate him with. You'll probably start feeling emotions related to the Prince of Darkness. What do you feel? Express your intention to speak with him, and he shall come.

Because when you think of the Prince of Darkness, he thinks of you back.

This also applies to other Forms & Principles, too.

So for example, I want to communicate with Thor. I think about him, I immerse myself in the idea of his strength. And Thor speaks.

As for evocation, if you really want to actually experience the entity outside of yourself, you could a black mirror (I my laptop or phone), and stare at it whilst having the idea of the entity you wish to commune with. It will happen.

I've tested these methods, and they worked. So I ask you, "What good is being able to communicate with the gods, if you can't talk to them whenever you need? What is good about relying on a complex method when you can do it simply." I get the appeal of theatrics and psychodrama, and sure, I'd like to do some dramatic rituals too, but we shouldn't rely on them.

It's so simple to communicate with the gods, all you have to do is show them that you're willing to talk to them.

Science / Compiled Scientific Evidence in favor of the "Paranormal"

Burr's L fields:

Sheldrake's Research (Morphic fields would be something similar to Aquino's view on consciousness):

And, last, but certainly not least!

Dean Radin's compilation of the best evidence in favor of the psychic phenomena (or "paranormal" if you'd like, although that word is misleading):

@Xepera maSet , you could use some of these in your debates over at reddit, but I doubt they'll consider it.

General LHP Discussion / Gods, My Pantheon, Some Musings
« on: January 04, 2018, 11:30:43 am »
As some of you may already know, I like to switch things up, change paradigms, as to not stagnate. This bit will be on the nature of the gods as I see it, my pantheon, and some other musings.

The modified theory of forms as presented by @Xepera maSet and the comprehensive argument for Set is the closest thing that matches my belief on the nature of the gods.

The gods as I see them are not spirits, they are not supernatural, they are not ghostly figures that will follow you around and judge your every move. Rather, they are very much natural in the sense that they cannot bend the laws of physics & nature. They do not influence the physical.

The gods, as I see them, are Complex Platonic Form which are capable of acting independently - and their actions can only be observed by proxy. A god needs a "host," as it were, in order to exact its influence upon the world. They cannot influence the physical word directly. They influence it through us or animals (which I have witnessed on several occasions).

The gods inspire, they plant information into us which seems to be coming out of nowhere. Tesla used to talk about how he's not coming up with his ideas, but rather that he's a conductor - he's receiving the ideas from the world of ideas. I was reading something about Tesla yesterday, and found myself surprised that he's had a similar view on ideas & information.

The gods are spaceless, timeless. They are immortal. And thus, it's impossible to destroy them (they are necessary to existence, after all); it's impossible to summon them, too. Why? Because they're always there, everywhere! And nowhere. Think of it this way - Odin or Set represent the source of consciousness. The higher mind. For as long as you are a conscious being, you have a connection to Odin or Set or any other interpretation of the Platonic Form of Consciousness; therefore it's unnecessary to evoke him! Now, you can, in my opinion, improve your connection to this god thanks to altered states of consciousness, but that's another topic altogether.

I have realized recently that there is no need to evoke or invoke a being - and by evoke or invoke I mean proper ritualistic evocation or invocation. Rituals are good because of their psychodramatic and theatrical effect it can have on a person, but they are not necessary. One can get in touch with the gods within seconds. You could get in touch with the gods while you're walking in the woods, just thinking about them. You'll find that you'll experience different emotions, sensations, get new ideas, perhaps.

The gods are also very subtle, and because of this I often refuse to engage in debates about the existence of gods. It's so easy to neglect them or disbelieve in them (which is fine, really) because their influence on this world (by proxy, through us & animals) is not as glamorous & flashy as it is described in the holy scripture. I could go on a rant about why I find it pointless to debate the existence of gods, but I rather not. Debating and criticizing a religious doctrine is good and can be productive, but the existence of gods is a matter what leads to nowhere.

In any case, with all of this being said, I would like to share with you my pantheon

Odin - The Complex Platonic Form of Consciousness, Intellect, Wisdom & Higher Mind (Odin has even more traits)

Thor - The Complex Platonic Form of Order, Physical & Mental strength & Will

Crnobog/Chernobog/Chernabog - The Complex Platonic Form of Chaos, Progress, Destruction & Shadow (read: Jungian)

Azazel - The Complex Platonic Form of Desire, Progress, Spiritual Alchemy, Rebellion, Adversariality

Athena - The Complex Platonic Form of Freedom, Knowledge, Wisdom, Strategical Thinking, War, Triumph, etc

In any case, I know that some of you are henotheists, but I have to ask: What is your pantheon? Which gods do you venerate / respect highly?

What can you tell me about the Information Magic Model? What would an Information Model evocation method look like?


The Information Model
The information model of magic is being developed since about 1987 and there is still considerable debate about the direction it shall ultimately take. Its basic premises to date are as follows:

    a) Energy as such is "dumb": it needs information on what to do; this can be so called laws of nature or direct commands.

    b) Information does not have mass or energy. Thus, it is faster than light and not bound by the restrictions of the Einsteinian spacetime continuum. It can therefore be transmitted or tapped at all times and at all places. In analogy (but of course only as such!) it may be likened to quantum phenomena rather than relativistic mass-energy. It can, however, attach itself to a medium e.g. an organism or any other memory storage device.

At the start of the theoretical debate it was still believed that the postulation of morphic (or, more precisely, morphogenetic) fields as hypothesized by Rupert Sheldrake had to be an essential factor by way of explaining the mode of actual information transmittance. This, however, while still being discussed, does not appear to be strictly prerogative though it cannot be not ruled out that an act of information magic may create such fields. It does seem more probable, though, that the concept of information matrices will prove to be the most promising theory in the long run.

The application of the as yet evolving information model has led to the discipline I have termed Cybermagic (from "cybernetics" or the "science of control systems"). Contrary to the other models described above, Cybermagic does not rely on magical trance to achieve its effects. Rather, the Cybermagician activates either his own main memory banks, namely brain and spine (the Golf-club chakra, so-called because of its shape reminiscent of a golf-club) or those of the target person. The desired information is then called up and transmitted quite similarly to a copy command on an MS-DOS computer. The copy command analogy holds good insofar as the information (not having mass) is not actually "lost" in the process (as energy would be) but rather is duplicated. This is an important point as it allows for the magician to perform his magic even in a state of very low physical power, possibly even when almost completely intoxicated, as long as his basic "life support systems" are still functional and the command syntax is employed correctly.

It is, however, obvious that this technique demands a fair control of what used to be termed kundalini effects and practice has shown ever and again that a good amount of Yoga and meditation experience is a great help in achieving to Cybermagic.

Unfortunately, the full theory and practice of Cybermagic cannot be described here due to lack of space and will thus have to be the subject of a separate article to be published later. To date the main experimental research work is being done within the Magical Pact of the Illuminates of Thanateros (IOT) and some quite astounding results have already been achieved, especially in the field of language and knowledge transfer as well as magical healing.

In spite of its very modern, untraditionalist outlook the basic principles of Cybermagic may in truth well be the oldest form of magic extant. For we can, for example, find a number of reports in the East to the effect of a guru transferring all his knowledge to his successor before his death, which is usually achieved by an act of long, mutual meditation.

This goes to show that magic as a whole has always existed in many, coexisting models. What has changed, however, is the stress laid on one model or the other in the course of time.

Setianism / How do you respond to the criticism of Theory of Forms?
« on: January 02, 2018, 06:05:48 pm »
How would you respond to this criticism of the Theory of Forms?

I'll go first, in no particular order:

1. Anti-Cosmicism, be it Anti-Cosmic Satanism or Thursatru

2. Order of the Nine Angles

3. The Temple of Maergzjirah (definitely worth looking into; interesting path, at the very least)

4. Lovecraftian current

5. Rokkratru (which may get confused with Thursatru, but the end goal is different)

What about you? What would you say is the most "darkest" magical tradition(s) you know?

General LHP Discussion / Explaining Magic with Psychology
« on: December 31, 2017, 11:37:17 am »
A thought experiment:

What is magic?

Magic is the art of using symbols and metaphors to cause changes of one's own state of mind.

How does magic work?

The core element of magic is manifestation, that is to say to obtain an object of desire thanks to synchronicity - meaningful coincidences. The psychological model explains manifestation & synchronicity as thus:

When we perform a ritual, we would often enter a trance state - which is achieved through repetition (thoughts, chants, and what have you). It is thanks to this repetition (and also psychodrama) that we engrave our own will into our subconsciousness. When we step outside of our ritual chamber, and begin leading our mundane lives, we will unconsciously start noticing "meaningful coincidences."  We then begin to think that either the world around us is bending to our will, or subtle forces are at work.

The psychological model says, nay, it is us who are unconsciously seeking that which will fulfill our will. We have become more sensitive to opportunities, so it may give off an illusion that the world is bending to our will.

If this was not the case, we would be able to manifest objects of desire just by sitting and home and casting spells. The objects would come to our doorstep, but as you know, that's never the case. The magician must go out and WORK for the object of desire; nothing falls from the sky.

Another crucial component of manifestation & synchronicity is Spizzo's effect - it's an effect where we ascribe a causal relationship between our action(s) and an event. For example, when you clap your hands at a bus station and then someone coughs. If it happens enough times, we could fall into the trap of thinking that our clapping caused the person to cough.

The same thing is with ritual. When we're first starting out, we ascribe our results to coincidence (although there are people who instantly attribute it to their ritual working). But the more we practice magic, and the more results we get, we start to ascribe a causal relationship between our rituals and desired outcomes. Also, there's another side to this. We can also ascribe desired outcomes to the deities we work with, usually because of the patterns we notice, which I will talk about in a moment.

Now, an edgy reddt-tier atheist would say, "Ha! Ha! magic is just confirmation bias and fantasy delusions! Hail Dawkins!"

To which, I would say, "No. By performing magic you become more sensitive to opportunities that might fulfill your will. You turn yourself into a great tracker, which can be very beneficial. Without the ritual, you might've not noticed the opportunities."

How manifestation in evocation works & Other patterns

Pareidolia. Plain and simple. We are programmed to find patterns, even in randomness which results in us seeing things that aren't really there. This is the case with seeing entities in incense smoke, a scrying mirror, and so on.

And this isn't just a visual phenomenon. It's also a mental one. We will see elements and link them into a pattern. So, for instance, if I work with Odin, and then start seeing two ravens, and then later on a bearded man with a hat, and perhaps even get a desired outcome, I'll link all of these pieces into a pattern and conclude that Odin was there, and caused the desired outcome.

How Oujia boards & Pendulums work (divination)

Ideomotor effect. You are subconsciously sending tremors to your hands/fingers to move the board piece or swing the pendulum in a particular direction. These tremors are influenced by your thoughts and also (less commonly known) beliefs.

To test this out, take a pendulum, then ask it a question. If it "shows" yes, ask the same question but then start thinking "no" and see the pendulum "showing" you no.

Same thing with Ouija board. Start thinking about a particular outcome, and see the piece being "guided" to that outcome. Also, if you're working with an Ouija board with a group, tell everyone to close their eyes, and have another person write down what the board is "saying" while you're moving the piece with closed eyes. You'll find that you'll end up with gibberish.

Have the spirits forgotten how to speak & spell once you closed your eyes?

How does seeing entities and communicating with them work?

Evocation is the most intriguing practice of all magical workings. It is through evocation that many come to conclude that gods, demons, and angels indeed exist. But the psychological model says otherwise:

What you are actually doing is entering a state of mind similar to that of a dream, and start interacting with your own impressions of those beings, not the actual beings themselves. Hence, there are a lot of inconsistencies between occultists' experience with one and the same being. However, there are also similarities which are explained by the same explanation.

The archetypes are real, and that's how the psychological model explains the entities. They are archetypes. And two or three people can have similar impressions and associations of one archetype, but there will also be differences.

I'll give you an example. Let's take Lucifer, for instance. Five occultists will have these same impression/association of Lucifer: he is male, he is the bringer of light, he appears as a shining angel, most likely with blond hair and blue eyes (because of that light association). Those are similarities, and people will report them as confirmation. But that does not mean that those are Lucifer's objective characteristics. Rather, it's kind of obvious why people experienced those things when working with Lucifer. And, of course, there are variations - not all occultists will see Lucifer as male. Some may see him as female. But this isn't unique. How many times have we dreamed of people we know as dramatically different? Even gender-bent them in our dreams. I know I have.

Then, you'll have the differences. One occultist may perceive Lucifer as prideful, because he's more Judeo-Christian oriented. Another occultist may see him as very benevolent, because he's Luciferian / Satanism oriented. The third one might see Lucifer as violent, and so on.

The voices that people hear are actually a part of their own mind. Just like you're capable of dreaming of a person talking to you, you're also capable of talking to an entity. It's the same thing, essentially. Except the entity's voice will probably be more "voiceless" like your own inner voice, because you're not in a deep trance or sleep as you would be when dreaming.

How does divination work?

It's cold reading, for the most part. When someone performs a divination for another, usually they'll fish for information, and they will almost always provide them with vague information. The psychic readers almost never (if never) will tell you specifics that only you would know, WITHOUT YOU SAYING ANYTHING TO THEM! Check out Darren Brown's youtube channel for more information; how psychics operate, what is cold reading, and so on.

How does "energy work" work?

Often magicians will talk about feeling energy, and what not. Feeling energy of an entity or something. What this essentially is is placebo. They convince (subconsciously or otherwise) themselves that an object or an entity "vibrates" a certain way, so they'll feel some sensations. This "energy" they're speaking of are nothing more than sensations. You cannot measure it, you cannot use it to power something; they're just feelings.

What is Astral Travel and how does it work?

Astral travel is essentially lucid dreaming. If you would look at the methods for astral travel, all of them require you to lie down and enter REM phase. With very few exceptions, astral travel experiments resulted in the person not being able to see what is in the other room, and usually they'll see blackness instead of other floors if they're trying to ascend through the ceiling and enter their neighbor's apartment.

With exceptions, the reason why people don't end up dreaming nonsense, but instead find themselves leaving their body while their surrounding stays relatively the same is because the person is entering the dream state with the goal and the belief that they will leave their body. And, as some of you already know, convincing yourself that you'll have a lucid dream before going to bed is a legitimate way to have a lucid dream. The difference is, with astral travel, you specify what kind of lucid dream you wish to have, rather than give a vague affirmation, "I will lucid dream tonight."

So here's my promised psychological view on magic. Let me know if I had left something out, and do let me know your thoughts on this. Whether or not this is plausible to you or not, etc.

Criticism is more than appreciated! This is a mental exercise, after all! Bear in mind, though, I will answer from the perspective of someone who adheres to this model, and as such, my replies with be something you would expect from a materialist.

General LHP Discussion / Paradigm Shift 1.0
« on: December 30, 2017, 07:11:20 pm »
I find paradigm shifting fun.

First, being able to defend and expand upon a paradigm you normally don't adhere to is a great mental exercise.

Second, exploration is always rewarding.

I may, for the time being, experiment with the purely psychological / secular paradigm. One could even call it a purely materialistic paradigm. The reason behind this is because I want to step out of my comfort zone, and see what lies on the other side. As someone who is opposed to materialism, I will undergo both an insight role and a paradigm shift, and as such think like a materialist for a bit, and see what happens.

This does not mean I am abandoning my path; rather, I'm just exercising and exploring.

With all of this being said, don't be surprised by the upcoming psychological/secular/materialist themed posts. One of them will be trying to explain magic with psychology, and see how that will fare.

General LHP Discussion / Odin - Both a LHP and a RHP God?
« on: December 24, 2017, 12:52:41 pm »
As you may already know, Asatru is considered a RHP religion. Asatruars venerate Odin too (even if he isn't the main focus as it is the case with Odinism), which may give off an impression that Odin is a RHP god, but I disagree.

Odin is a very complex character. He is not one dimensional, there are many aspects of him. Without getting too much into mythology, Odin is a god who is in pursuit of knowledge and wisdom. He made great sacrifices, similar to a LHP magician does when he opens himself up to metaphysical forces in order to gain insight from them. Odin sacrifices himself FOR HIMSELF. It is an act of selfishness, one might argue, but to me it's more like a pursuit of bettering yourself, becoming stronger/wiser - again, something that a LHP magician does.

Odin is also known to be a trickster, and not shy from wreaking havoc if need be. He is by no means a love-and-unity type of deity. He is also a wanderer, similar to a LHP magician drifting from one path to another, acquiring wisdom from each system and incorporating it into himself.

So, while there are RHP elements to Odin, there are also LHP elements to him.

I don't think that Odin is an enemy to the LHP magician like some may think. I think he is a deity that both LHP and RHP magicians can work with.

What are your thoughts on this?

@King Mob : this is what I wanted to ask you previously, but haven't gotten around to do so. I'd greatly appreciate your insight here.

General LHP Discussion / Can a complex form contain multiple forms?
« on: December 10, 2017, 04:35:46 pm »
Setian Platonism is a pretty good model to use when trying to explain metaphysical entities, such as Set. However, I don't think there is just ONE form of consciousness. Why? Because that would imply that the Prince of Darkness is the only metaphysical being which is conscious and intelligent, and that the rest are just mechanistic embodiments of various emotions, instincts, etc.

Based on the experiences of many magicians, including my own, we've seen that various entities have their own will, and won't simply comply to magician's whims. They do seem to have free will, consciousness and a level of intelligence. And although these entities represent various things (for example Asmodeus representing lust or judgement), they also seem to represent pieces and chunks if not wholes of other forms. Asmodeus isn't JUST a form of lust or judgement. Asmodeus can act on his own will. He is conscious.

We could then conclude that

A) A singular complex form can contain many other forms

B) There is a single form of consciousness which acts as a source to all other consciousnesses including to those of other entities, but this can lead to panpsychism (everything is conscious to a degree) which is problematic.


General LHP Discussion / Egyptian Proverbs
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:17:14 pm »
Here's some good ancient wisdom. I find myself coming back and re-reading some of these proverbs.

- The best and shortest road towards knowledge of truth is Nature.
- For every joy there is a price to be paid.
- If his heart rules him, his conscience will soon take the place of the rod.
- What you are doing does not matter so much as what you are learning from doing it. ? It is better not to know and to know that one does not know, than presumptuously to attribute some random meaning to symbols.
- If you search for the laws of harmony, you will find knowledge.
- If you are searching for a Neter, observe Nature!
Exuberance is a good stimulus towards action, but the inner light grows in silence and concentration.
- Not the greatest Master can go even one step for his disciple; in himself he must experience each stage of developing consciousness. Therefore he will know nothing for which he is not ripe.
- The body is the house of god. That is why it is said, "Man know yourself."
- True teaching is not an accumulation of knowledge; it is an awaking of consciousness which goes through successive stages.
- The man who knows how to lead one of his brothers towards what he has known may one day be saved by that very brother.
- People bring about their own undoing through their tongues.
- If one tries to navigate unknown waters one runs the risk of shipwreck.
- Leave him in error who loves his error.
- Every man is rich in excuses to safeguard his prejudices, his instincts, and his opinions.
- To know means to record in one's memory; but to understand means to blend with the thing and to assimilate it oneself.
- There are two kinds of error: blind credulity and piecemeal criticism. Never believe a word without putting its truth to the test; discernment does not grow in laziness; and this faculty of discernment is indispensable to the Seeker. Sound skepticism is the necessary condition for good discernment; but piecemeal criticism is an error.
- Love is one thing, knowledge is another.
- True sages are those who give what they have, without meanness and without secret!
- An answer brings no illumination unless the question has matured to a point where it gives rise to this answer which thus becomes its fruit. Therefore learn how to put a question.
- What reveals itself to me ceases to be mysterious  for me alone: if I unveil it to anyone else, he hears mere words which betray the living sense: Profanation, but never revelation.
- The first concerning the 'secrets': all cognition comes from inside; we are therefore initiated only by ourselves, but the Master gives the keys.
- The second concerning the 'way': the seeker has need of a Master to guide him and lift him up when he falls, to lead him back to the right way when he strays.
- Understanding develops by degrees.
- As to deserving, know that the gift of heaven is free; this gift of Knowledge is so great that no effort whatever could hope to 'deserve' it.
- If the Master teaches what is error, the disciple's submission is slavery ; if he teaches truth, this submission is ennoblement.
- There grows no wheat where there is no grain.
- The only thing that is humiliating is helplessness.
- An answer if profitable in proportion to the intensity of the quest.
- Listen to your conviction, even if they seem absurd to your reason.
-- Know the world in yourself. Never look for yourself in the world, for this would be to project your illusion
To teach one must know the nature of those whom one is teaching.
- In every vital activity it is the path that matters.
- The way of knowledge is narrow.
- Each truth you learn will be, for you, as new as if it had never been written.
- The only active force that arises out of possession is fear of losing the object of possession.
- If you defy an enemy by doubting his courage you double it.
- The nut doesn't reveal the tree it contains.
- For knowledge... you should know that peace is an indispensable condition of getting it.
- The first thing necessary in teaching is a master; the second is a pupil capable of carrying on the tradition.
- Peace is the fruit of activity, not of sleep.
- Envious greed must govern to possess and ambition must possess to govern.
- When the governing class isn't chosen for quality it is chosen for material wealth: this always means decadence, the lowest stage a society can reach.
- One foot isn't enough to walk with.
- Our senses serve to affirm, not to know.
- We mustn't confuse mastery with mimicry, knowledge with superstitious ignorance.
- Physical consciousness is indispensable for the achievement of knowledge.
- A man can't be judge of his neighbor' intelligence. His own vital experience is never his neighbor's.
- No discussion can throw light if it wanders from the real point.
- Your body is the temple of knowledge.
- Experience will show you, a Master can only point the way.
-- A house has the character of the man who lives in it.
- All organs work together in the functioning of the whole.
- A man's heart is his own Neter.
- A pupil may show you by his own efforts how much he deserves to learn from you.
- Routine and prejudice distort vision. Each man thinks his own horizon is the limit of the world.
- You will free yourself when you learn to be neutral and follow the instructions of your heart without letting things perturb you. This is the way of Maat.
- Judge by cause, not by effect.
- Growth in consciousness doesn't depend on the will of the intellect or its possibilities but on the intensity of the inner urge.
- Every man must act in the rhythm of his time... such is wisdom.
- Men need images. Lacking them they invent idols. Better then to found the images on realities that lead the true seeker to the source.
- Maat, who links universal to terrestrial, the divine with the human is incomprehensible to the cerebral intelligence.
- Have the wisdom to abandon the values of a time that has passed and pick out the constituents of the future. An environment must be suited to the age and men to their environment.
- Everyone finds himself in the world where he belongs. The essential thing is to have a fixed point from which to check its reality now and then.
- Always watch and follow nature.
-- A phenomenon always arises from the interaction of complementary. If you want something look for the complement that will elicit it. Seth causes Horus.
H Horus redeems Seth.
- All seed answer light, but the color is different.
- The plant reveals what is in the seed.
- Popular beliefs on essential matters must be examined in order to discover the original thought.
- It is the passive resistance from the helm that steers the boat.
- The key to all problems is the problem of consciousness.
- Man must learn to increase his sense of responsibility and of the fact that everything he does will have its consequences.
- If you would build something solid, don't work with wind: always look for a fixed point, something you know that is stable... yourself.
- If you would know yourself, take yourself as starting point and go back to its source; your beginning will disclose your end.
- Images are nearer reality than cold definitions.
- Seek peacefully, you will find.
- Organization is impossible unless those who know the laws of harmony lay the foundation.
- It is no use whatever preaching Wisdom to men: you must inject it into their blood.

- Social good is what brings peace to family and society.
- Knowledge is not necessarily wisdom.
- By knowing one reaches belief. By doing one gains conviction. When you know, dare.
- Altruism is the mark of a superior being.
- All is within yourself. Know your most inward self and look for what corresponds with it in nature.
- The seed cannot sprout upwards without simultaneously sending roots into the ground.
- The seed includes all the possibilities of the tree.... The seed will develop these possibilities, however, only if it receives corresponding energies from the sky.
- Grain must return to the earth, die, and decompose for new growth to begin.
- Man, know yourself... and you shalt know the gods.
