The dialectical stratum consists of two spheres: the earthly sphere and the hereafter. Death does not liberate man from the dialectical stratum, but he passes from one sphere to the other.
And just as it is certain that death catches up with us in the physical sphere, the development in the other sphere compels (necessitates) us – that is, as a microcosm – to the inclusion of a new personality, because on the other side the human being merely disposes of an incomplete organism.
In esoteric circles one speaks in this context usually of reincarnation or re-embodiment, thereby suggesting that there would be such a thing as a continuation of existence after death. Totally incorrect!
When you later on die of your nature-being, your entire personality-being will fade over time, and only the fundamental fire-principle that gave you life, will return to Continue reading →
SPIRITUAL EASTER AND PENTECOST – GUIDANCE FOR CONTEMPLATION AND INSPIRATION CONCERNING THE RESURRECTION OF THE INNER MAN
By André de Boer and Tanja Rozema
The resurrection of the inner man is the very reason for our life on earth. The resurrection is the essence of man and brings lustre, strength and inner courage to his life. However: man must find it for himself and man must wish for it himself.
This book is based on selected chapters from The Gospel of the Holy Twelve. The reflections on these chapters can be seen as signposts for spiritual awakening and renewal. The new atmosphere, in which the Holy Spirit creates in accordance with the divine plan of creation, exists and is omnipresent. This atmosphere is always present and constitutes your birth right as a human being. Sometimes you sense its energy like a spring morning in the Easter season: fresh, refreshing, shuddering with restrained life. Then you know from within that this sensation holds a promise. You know it as inner experience and knowing. That is Gnosis. Continue reading →
This book which elaborates on the inner meaning of Easter and Pentecost is the sequel to the book Spiritual Christmas. The books were compiled in response to the wish of many to provide the online programmes Spiritual Christmas, Spiritual Easter and Spiritual Pentecost as printed book as well. Together both books provide a clear gnostic vision on how to become a true human being as seen from the perspective of
Easter should actually be celebrated around the spring equinox. Between 21 and 23 March, the light of the day is exactly in balance with the darkness of the night. But because the determination of the exact day of this festival is based on the lunar calendar of the pre-Christian Jewish tradition – the first Sunday on or after the equinox on which it is full moon – Easter is often celebrated many days after the equinox. Nevertheless, its spiritual meaning is closely linked to the symbolism of this balance between day and night. The night symbolizes our daily life: as long as Continue reading →

One day as Jesus and Lamaas walked alone in plaza Jagannath, Lamaas said, my Jewish master, what is truth?
And Jesus said, truth is the only thing that changes not. In all the world there are two things; the one is truth; the other falsehood is; and truth is that which is, and falsehood that which seems to be. Now truth is aught, and has Continue reading →
During the autumn equinox light and darkness are precisely in balance with each other. Subsequently the influence of the darkness begins to increase more and more as the power of the light is fading. The darkness is the deepest around Christmas and we can only wait in confidence until the light is born again. That is how people of yore experienced the alternation and struggle between the light and the darkness in their own lives.
Before villages and towns were bathed in electric light, the increasing darkness was almost tangible to the inhabitants and they could not help but eagerly await the new light. They heard stories about the miraculous birth that took place in this darkness in the distant past: God’s son was born in a hidden place in order to liberate humanity from the darkness. The light that would soon become stronger again was a sign of this birth. It was not only an external light but could also be experienced as an inner light that pierced the darkness of everyday life.
