Introduction to Gnosis


A great author deduced that the human being needs eight important things in life: health and the conservation of life, nourishment, sleep, money and the things money can buy, life in the beyond, sexual satisfaction, the well-being of his children, and a sense of proper importance. We synthesize these eight things into three:




If you really want to acquire these three things, you should study and practice everything that this course teaches you. We will show you the path of success.

The Power of Thought

It is necessary for you to know that an immensely superior power greater than electricity and dynamite exists: that is the power of thought. When you think of a friend or a family member, etc., mental waves escape from your brain; these waves are similar to those of a radio transmitter and these waves travel through space and reach the mind of the person you are thinking about.

Scientists have already begun to experiment with the power of thought and soon they will invent the telementometer (the instrument with which the mental forces of any person can be measured). In the future, optics will advance some more and then the fotomentometer will be invented (the instrument that will allow us to see and measure the mental force that is radiated by the human brain).

You must know that just as man has a mind, the entire Universe also has a mind. The human mind and the cosmic mind exist. The earth is condensed mind. The entire Universe is condensed mind. The waves of the universal mind saturate the infinite space.

The first thing that an architect who will design a house does is to create the project mentally, that is to say he constructs it in his mind, then he projects it on the plan and, lastly, crystallizes it materially. Thus, everything, every building first existed in the mind.

Nothing can exist in the physical or material world in which we live without first having existed in the world of the mind.

It is necessary to learn how to concentrate and project the mind with precision and great force. It is necessary for you to know that to concentrate the mind is to fix your attention on a single thing. When you fix your attention on a distant friend, when you concentrate on that friend, you can be certain that your brain emits powerful mental waves that will inevitably reach your friend’s brain. What is important is for you to truly concentrate. It is necessary that no other thought be capable of distracting you. You should learn how to concentrate your mind.

You are studying this course and we believe that you want to succeed in life and have health, money and love. Reflect a little, learn how to handle the force of thought.

Whoever learns how to handle the power of thought proceeds to success with absolute certainty, just as the arrow guided by the hand of the expert archer reaches its target.

Remember that the world is a product of the mind. You are what you are because of the mind. You can totally change yourself by making use of the power of thought. The poor and miserable are that way because they want to be so; they keep themselves miserable and poor with their minds. The rich and powerful are that way because they made themselves that way with the mind. Each one projects into the world of cosmic mind what he is and what he wants to be. The projections of the mind crystaffize physically and we then have in practice a life that is rich or miserable, happy or wretched.

Everything depends on the type of mental projections that have crystallized. In the same way that a cloud condenses into water and water freezes into ice, mental power is also like that. First clouds (projects), then water (circumstances, development of the project), and lastly, ice (the project is converted into concrete facts or things). If the project has been done well and with sufficient power, if the actions or the development of the events and circumstances have been marvelous, the result will be success. The perfect condensation of the project is success.

There are three basic factors for the success of a project:

(1) Mental Force

(2) Favorable Circumstances

(3) Intelligence.

Mental Force

Without mental force it is impossible to achieve the crystallization of a project (commercial, etc.). It is necessary for our students to learn how to handle mental force; but first it is necessary for the student to learn how to relax his physical body. It is indispensable to know how to relax the body to achieve the perfect concentration of thought. We can relax the body seated in a comfortable chair or lying down in the corpse posture (in decubito dorsal, that is to say on our back, mouth up, with our heels touching each other and our arms at our sides). The second of the two positions is better.

Imagine that your feet are subtle, that a group of dwarves escape from them. Imagine that your calves are full of small playful dwarves that leave one by one and that, as they leave, the muscles become flexible and elastic. Continue with your knees, performing the same exercise. Continue with the thighs, sexual organs, abdomen, heart, throat, face and head muscles, successively, imagining that those small dwarves flee from each of those parts of the body leaving the muscles completely relaxed.

Concentration of Thought

When the body is perfectly relaxed concentration of thought becomes easy and simple.

Concentrate on the business you have in mind. Vividly imagine the entire business, the people that are related with it. Identify yourself with those people. Speak as if you were them and mentally say what you would like those people to say. Forget about yourself and change your human personality to that of those people, acting the way you would like them to act. Thus you will cause powerful thought waves that will cross through space and reach the brains of the people related with the business. If the concentration is perfect success will then be inevitable.

The Law of Karma

This Law is known in the Orient and millions of people in the entire world know of it because this Law is universal. This Law operates in the whole universe. If you misuse the power of thought, the Law of Karma will fall upon you and you will be horribly punished.

Mental energy is a gift of God and should only be utilized for good purposes and with good intentions. It is just for the poor to better their economic situation, but it is not just to utilize mental power to harm other people. Before doing a mental exercise to carry out the crystallization of a project reflect and meditate, if you are going to use mental power to harm others it is better not to do it because the terrible ray of Cosmic Justice will inevitably fall upon you like a ray of vengeance.

Favorable Circumstances

Thought and action should always march totally united. Materialization of a project is only possible when the circumstances are favorable. Learn how to determine favorable circumstances for your business. Freud, the great psychologist, said that everything that man does in life has two fundamental causes: (1) sexual impulse (2) the desire to be great.

Every human being is motivated by the sexual impulse. Everybody wants to be appreciated. If you want to be surrounded by good circumstances for the crystallization of your business, then recognize the good qualities of others. Stimulate the good qualities of your fellowmen, do not humiliate anyone, do not despise anyone. It is necessary to encourage each one in his job, office or profession. By means of appreciation and encouragement we can awaken enthusiasm in all those people that interrelate with us.

Learn how to wisely praise your fellowmen without falling into flattery. People feel reassured with the food of esteem. Be gentlemanly; do not criticize anyone. In this way you will form the favorable atmosphere for the crystallization of your business. The sincere appreciation of the merits of one’s fellowman is one of the greatest secrets of success.

It is necessary to abandon the bad habit of talking about ourselves at every moment. It is urgent to employ the verb to strengthen and encourage the good qualities of our fellowman. The gnostic student should abandon the terrible habit of talking about himself and telling the story of his life at every moment. The man or woman who only talks of himself or herself becomes unbearable. Persons like this fall into misery because people become tired of them.

Never say “I;” always say “we.” The term “we” has more cosmic power. The term “I” is egotistical and tires all those who come in contact with us. The “I” is egotistical The “I” should be dissolved. The “I” is a creator of conflicts and problems. Always repeat: “we, we, we.” Every morning before getting out of bed, with force and energy say, ‘We are strong. We are rich. We are filled with luck and harmony. Om, Om, Om.” Recite this simple prayer and you will see that you will be prosperous in everything. Have great devotion in this prayer; have faith.


Hang a silk thread from the ceiling of your room with a needle at the end of the thread.

Concentrate on that needle and try to move it with the power of thought. Mental waves, when developed, can move this needle. Work ten minutes daily on this exercise. In the beginning, the needle at the end of the silk thread will not move but, with time, you will see that the needle oscillates and moves vigorously. This exercise is to develop mental power.

Remember that mental waves travel through space and pass from one brain to the next.
