“Kundalini is awakened only by will, and blood is the vehicle of the spirit. The pineal gland is the channel of direct spiritual energy and can be motivated by constant self-enquiry.”
“In love is found the secret of divine unity. It is love that unites the higher and the lower stages of existence, that raises the lower to the level of the higher – Where all become fused into one.”
“One of the goals of meditation, is to gain control of the subconscious part of the mind. If one were to succeed, one would also gain a high degree of self-mastery.”
~ Rav Aryeh Kaplan. 1934-1984. Physicist and Kabbalist.
“Meditation has to Spread All Over Your Life.
Whatever You Do, Do Meditatively. Walk Meditatively, Eat Meditatively. If You are Making Love, Make Love Meditatively. Meditation has to become Your Life Twenty-Four Hours a Day; then Only the Transformation. Then You Go Beyond Sex, You Go Beyond Body, You Go Beyond Mind. And for the First Time You Become Aware of Godliness, of Ecstasy, of Bliss, of Truth, of Liberation.”
“What sorcerers and necromancers sought above all in their evocations of
the impure spirit was that magnetic power which is the possession of the
true adept, but was desired by them only that they might abuse it
The folly of sorcerers was an evil folly, and one
of their chief ends was the power of bewitchments or harmful influences.
It seems to us a dangerous and real power.
The true Magus
bewitches without ceremonial and by his – her mere reprobation those
whom he – she condemns and considers it necessary to punish; there
forgiveness even bewitches those who do them wrong, and never do the
enemies of initiates carry far the impunity of their injustice.”
“We cannot say the Side of Spirit is Twice as Good as the Other Side; We
must bring the Pairs of Opposites together in an altogether Different
Way, where the Rights of the Body are just as much Recognized as the
Rights of the Spirit.”
~ Carl G. Jung, Zarathustra Seminar pg.235
“There is only one dogma in Magic, and it is this: The visible is the manifestation of the invisible, or in other terms, the perfect word, in things appreciable and visible, bears an exact proportion to the things which are inappreciable by our senses and unseen by our eyes”
“Medieval Alchemists, Who Searched for the Secret of Matter in a Prescientific Way Hoping to find God in it, or at Least the Working of Divine Activity, Believed that this Secret was Embodied in Their Famous
“Philosopher’s Stone ” but Some of the Alchemists dimly perceived that Their Much-Sought-After Stone was a Symbol of Something that can be Found Only with the Psyche of Man.”
~ Carl G. Jung, Man and His Symbols (1875-1961)
