How can we modify the mechanicals conditions of the World?

Answers from the books of Samael Aun Weor

We urgently need to encourage our Gnostic students to observe themselves and in what manner they must observe themselves and the reasons for this. Observation is a way to modify the mechanical conditions of the world. Yet, internal selfobservation is a way to intimately change.

Consequently, and as a corollary to the former statement, we can and must emphatically affirm that two types of knowledge exist: the external and the internal. Therefore, if we do not have within ourselves the magnetic center that can differentiate between these two qualities of knowledge, then confusion would be the only outcome of this mixture of two canons or orders of ideas.

Sublime pseudo-esoteric doctrines with marked scientism at heart belong to the field of the externally observable. Nevertheless, they are accepted by many aspirants as internal knowledge.

We find ourselves then before two worlds, the external and the internal. The first, the external, is perceived by the senses of external perception. The second, the internal, can only be perceived through the sense of internal self-observation.

Thoughts, ideas, emotions, longings, hopes, disappointments, etc., are internal, invisible to the ordinary; common and current senses. Yet, they are more real to us than the dining table or the living room couch.

Indeed, we live in our internal world more than in our external world. This is irrefutable, indisputable.

In our internal worlds, in our secret world, we love, desire, suspect bless, curse, yearn, suffer, enjoy, we are disappointed rewarded, etc.

Unquestionably the two worlds, internal and external, are experimentally verifiable. The external world is the observable. The internal world is in itself and inside oneself the self-observable, here and now.

Whosoever truly wants to know the internal worlds of the planet Earth or of the Solar System or of the Galaxy in which we live, must previously know his intimate world, his individual, internal life, his own internal worlds. “Man, know thyself and thou wilt know the Universe and its Gods”
