  • How do Gnostic students without a physical teacher meet teachers in the internal worlds?

I meet people in my dreams from time to time that offer to teach me things and I usually feel suspicious of them. I'm not even sure if these are real people or just imaginary dream images, products of my ego. Dion Fortune wrote that it was important to study with an esoteric group that has "contacts" in the internal worlds. Is that really necessary or do Gnostic students just evaluate teachers on the internal planes in the same way we evaluate teachers in the physical world by getting to know them over a period of time?

I practiced Gnosis for two years without having a group at the time, and was having many experiences in the internal worlds. Therefore, what matters is your practice, not attendance to a specific physical Gnostic organization.

As for evaluating the qualifications of a teacher, we can go into meditation and the internal worlds. I personally dedicated to this purpose when seeking to understand (and meet) the Master Samael Aun Weor, until the time came when he concurred to my call and we made a pact by shaking hands, whereby I would receive his wisdom and help, and that I would consign myself as his disciple. Truly, through internal meditation and inner experience is how we follow Christ within, and cease to look for "masters" in this physical plane!

However, we can learn much from a physical instructor, but you must be judicious, because I have known terrible missionaries, exceptionally cruel and cold, many whom who, while speaking about the teaching, do not practice the teaching at all. "By their fruits you will know them."

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
