This practice of reciting the name of Christ continuously I am familiar with, although I wonder where the practice came from to recite it in the brow (or maybe that little gland in the brain?). Could you tell me of its origin? I was taught unceasing prayer by my spiritual father, but with the practi...

One teaching that I have heard is this: before the Law, the beatific life of the Gospel with faith existed, as can be seen with Abraham and other forefathers. But when the law was given, that manner of life had virtually disappeared. But with Christ, that manner of life returned. This is indicated b...

I understand that in your tradition, there is openness to different ideas, partially because one seeks for the practice that “resonates” with their spirit. I thought I would add, on the subject of guardian angels, my two cents. I agree that it is not archangels that serve as guardian angels, unless ...

Two recent experiences

I wanted to share a couple of experiences I have had over the past few days. I would be interested in anyone’s take on what happened. The first thing happened last night, as I was doing my rule. Right as I ended one section, it seemed as if, although my eyes were closed, I was looking at a bluish li...

Hello again, Tau Malachi... Thank you for your response. Among the practices listed on your web page, the two that I can slightly identify with are the (I forget the exact names) silent mind one, where you practice not identifying with thoughts, and the Primordial Meditation. Both of these concepts ...

Thank you Phillip for your candor with my question. I was worried that this was the case - I want to make an omellete without breaking any eggs - something I know is difficult to do. Unfortunately, the nature of the practices I have received from my spiritual father are opposite in many of the pract...

Thank you, Marion, for your response. I was wondering, though, something a bit towards the end. I definately agree that regular interaction with one's spiritual father and trust of his guidance is necessary, and also that one must be faithful to the practices and advice he gives. Also, I know it is ...

Hello again, Tau Malachi...pardon my persistence, but could you describe for me how the "conscious unification with God and the Godhead" is realized? For instance, it is taught in tradition when one gathers (or goes within) when the mind and heart are united, however briefly, there is a sense of ela...

I was wondering if you could clarify a question or two for me, Tau Malachi, concerning what you wrote. I find it interesting what you said about transcending the duality of saint and sinner, and of the realization of the state of a tzaddik. I was taught to believe by my spiritual mentor that a saint...

Greetings, Tau Malachi... Thank you for your response. I find that when I read your posts I tend to get lost in Gnostic philosophical ideas, concepts and terms, and then suddenly you say something very practical. I am going to read what you wrote a couple of times, and see if I can get the bigger pi...

This is my first post on the forum, and I hope what I write will not be taken as an insult. I am merely adding my two cents based on introspective thought I have on sin.
