Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

It is obvious that in the last instant, the study of oneself, serene reflection, concludes in the stillness and silence of the mind.

When the mind is still and in silence, not only on a superficial, intellectual level, but also in each and all of the 49 subconscious departments, then comes the novel, the essence, the consciousness becomes unbottled and the awakening of the soul, ecstasy, and Samadhi come.

The daily practice of meditation radically transforms us. People who do not work on the annihilation of the ‘I’ live like butterflies going from school to school and do not find their permanent center of gravity, they die as failures without having attained the inner Self- Realization of the Being.
