Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

You have affirmed the reality. Exactly, they want immediate results and the things are not as the mind wants them to be. Here you cannot see the results immediately, we should work.

However, the results we may have neither can be perceived if one has not awakened his Consciousness.  Only by awakening our Consciousness you get to know the results. This is a lifetime work, this cannot be done overnight. There are times of terrible solitude and about that solitude has spoken the best initiates.

The “spiritual night” of a Beethoven, the “spiritual night” of a Mozart, the “spiritual night” of a Jesus from Nazareth, the “spiritual night” of a Hermes Trismegistus: times when he sees himself in the most terrible solitude, separated from any spirituality. He is not received up there, because he does not deserve it; he is not wanted down there either because he has turned into an enemy of the Psychological “I”.

Conclusion, one wanders as a wretched over the mud of the earth. Most of them fail in that epoch of the “spiritual night”. Those few who managed to resist, truly triumph. But they are a few, I repeat, the ones who manage to resist that hard trial.

Answer of the Book: The Magic Flute and the Initiation.

The state where the student of Gnosis can reach in his internal work, called “the spiritual night”. It is where everything goes wrong, pure materialism and density. The night is the lack of the light of wisdom, and very few are those who successfully surpass this process since it’s a time when the things don’t come out well in the spiritual field, no conscious astral projections, no experiences in meditation, no hunches, only matter and more matter. The key to get out of it, it’s the interior profound meditation, the work for others; just as Beethoven get submerged into meditation and got to compose such ineffable melodies and so he managed to surpass such terrible trials.
