In order to practice the first key which is the death of the egos, we need learn about awareness and self-observation first.

Egos are various psychological parts that make up our subconscious. Examples: anger, fear, anxiety, greed, lust, hate, depression, worries, stress, addictions, gluttony, etc. It is because of our egos that we suffer and normally they control most of the things that we do.

Awareness is simply being aware of the present moment. It is when we are aware of what we can see, hear, smell, feel and taste. Those are the five physical senses and we can easily be aware of those (at least momentarily). Self-observation is when we are aware of our inner life of thoughts, emotions and feelings. Awareness of the physical senses and self-observation is really part of the same thing: it is being aware of what we can perceive both inside and outside of us. From now on when I speak of awareness, I am referring to having the consciousness awake, so it can perceive things both externally and internally.

Egos cause our consciousness to be asleep, keeping us very unaware of many things and that make us go through life controlled by our egos.

We need to practice awareness of the present moment as much as we can throughout our daily life, being aware of both the physical and psychological world.

Egos are manifesting in five areas, and we can spot them as they are manifesting. But the ability to see them will increase as we practice. In the beginning it might be very little that we can see. But as we practice it, staying as much as we can in the moment, observing both outer and inner world, we begin to see more and more egos.

When we do, it is very good to see that we are not the egos, but that they are outside of us. We observe the emotions, thoughts and feelings for what they are, and we are the part which observes.

The five areas are called:
Emotional centre – around solar plexus, egos can be spotted around here and in stomach and chest
Intellectual centre – thoughts
Motor centre – upper back area, egos manifesting here can cause tensions or the desire to move for example
Sexual centre – here you can spot egos of sexual lust
Instinct – This is the lower back area and is similar to the motor centre, but the egos manifesting here might be more of cases when you jump out of fear for example, more “instinctual”

When we have learned to observe egos in our daily life, we can remove them by applying the death on them. More about that in the next post.

The consciousness is the part of us which brings peace and love. When the consciousness is activated we can experience peace and love. This makes us act in such a better way, both to ourselves and others.

If you want to learn more about awareness, you should definitely read the free downloadable eBook Self-Knowledge for Spiritual Awakening by Belsebuub.

A video about awareness which I think is very good is this one:

The Three Key Components

There are three key components which we need to put into practice in order to start walking along the esoteric path. These are called:

  1. Death
  2. Alchemy
  3. Sacrifice

I will explain them briefly here, but will go more into them in future posts.

There are different parts of our psyches which are called egos. Examples of egos are: anger, greed, lust, hate, depression, fear, worries, stress, gluttony, addictions, etc. When we walk the path towards enlightenment we eliminate these parts permanently. This is called the Death, or the inner death of the egos.

Basically our psyches consist of three main parts, which are consciousness, personality and egos. The consciousness is the core of us, the real us, the part that is aware. The personality is a vehicle for the egos and consciousness to express themselves (this is a very short explanation).

Egos keep us asleep, unaware of reality. For every ego that we eliminate, consciousness that was trapped within that ego is freed and returns to the “main consciousness” (us) with knowledge of the particular ego. This means that the more egos we eliminate, the more knowledge we get about ourselves and the more the consciousness expands and all of its qualities come forth and strengthen, such as peace and love to name a few. We awaken gradually more and more the more egos we eliminate.

When we eliminate egos we are balancing certain centres (which I will explain more about later). Then sexual energy (which is creative energy) is saved which normally is used by the egos. This energy is used in Alchemy.

Alchemy is a practice where we transmute sexual energy to create bodies in higher dimensions and raise the Kundalini in all of our bodies. This is necessary in order for the higher parts of our Being to incarnate within us.

We also need spiritual help to reach enlightenment; we cannot do it on our own. Here applies laws of giving and receiving, which means that in order to get enough spiritual help, we need to give spiritually to others. So as we help others to be able to progress on this path, we in turn are helped. This might be an obvious thing to do once we feel and develop love. There needs to be sacrifice when helping others as we sacrifice our selfish egos in order to help others and we also sacrifice egos when we eliminate them, in order for something superior (such as love and other spiritual qualities) to replace the inferior (egos).

The Path

The spiritual path towards enlightenment consists of various stages, where the three main stages are called the three mountains. To get on the path, we need to practice the three key components. There is also a probative path before the first mountain begins, which only requires the practice of eliminating our egos to start walking it.

This journey we take when we try to get on the path (probative path) and also when we are walking it (the path), consists of tests and initiations. Every test is a test upon our egos, how we act in various circumstances that are put to us by spiritual beings to see if we are reacting with egos, or if we are overcoming them.

The probative path requires only the elimination of the egos to start walking it. However, if we want to progress further we will need to work with all three key components. The probative path consists of various tests and minor initiations.

When we start climbing the first mountain by practicing all three key components, as we progress with the three keys, we will go through tests and initiations. If we pass them, we gain different things of value inside of us.

When all the three mountains are completed, we are free from the legion of egos, all parts of the Being are merged and we go into the Absolue completely awakened.

This is a very brief explanation of these things however, so keep that in mind. There are more detailed explanations regarding it.

Before reading this post I would recommend you to read the about page, so you will get a better picture of what I am talking about here.

The process of awakening could in a way (at least some aspect of it) be said to be the process of creation in reverse. So before explaining about the process of awakening, I will share the information about the process of creation. It will be a very brief explanation as there is a lot that can be said about creation, but I will tell the necessary parts in order to explain briefly about the process of awakening. If you would like to read a more detailed explanation, you can read the article The Process of Creation in the Universe and Enlightenment.

The following is taken from Belsebuub’s book Secret Knowledge, Hidden Wisdom. When the word Being is used, it refers to the totality of who we are, our total soul you can say.

Creation

Within the universe there are periods of activity and repose. Creation comes from what we call the Absolute, the omnipotent light that casts no shadows; it creates and forms an ordered process so that life can emerge.

It sends out particles of itself because of love, so that these particles can become self-aware, can have their own existence and can ultimately reside in the bliss of the Absolute, conscious of their own existence.

To do that there must be a creation for these particles to go into, because they cannot become self-aware existing only in light – the opposites are needed. The Absolute therefore, creates everything that is needed for life.

When there’s no creation in a part of the universe, darkness exists: this is the cosmic night. The Absolute brings forth life and there is a cosmic day. It sends out a ray of itself – this divides; it becomes the positive and the negative. From these two the neutral force is born and creation begins. It creates the seven dimensions and the infra-dimensions, and life erupts into the physical plane, which appears as the big bang. These take place in different parts of the universe.

Things begin from chaos and gradually, according to and order, they form the components needed for life.

Everything in the physical world is subject to time so at the end of the process, life in the physical disappears into a black hole, and there is a cosmic night in that part of the universe once again.

The seven dimensions that are created are as follows:
1. Length
2. Width
3. Height
4. Time
5. Eternity
6. Causal
7. Spirit

The Wheel of Life

The Being that comes out from the Absolute divides into various parts: male (Father), female (Mother), Spirit, soul and so on. These parts stay in the higher dimensions while a tiny spark of it, which is called the essence or consciousness (the one that we have now), goes into the physical world where it joins the wheel of life, which is called the Wheel of Samsara.

It is this essence that has the task of awakening and gradually reuniting with all the other parts of the Being, as it ascends along the esoteric path. It is here because this world has all the necessary things for it to become self-aware.

So creation took place in order for us to awaken. Our Being divided into various parts in creation, where the different parts are in different dimensions, and it is through the esoteric path that we reunite with it once again, awakened. We then reach enlightenment and have fulfilled the purpose of the creation. I will in following posts write about this process and how one is said to start walking along the esoteric path towards enlightenment. But for best information, read directly what he teaches in his books, articles, etc. Although I do my best to explain things as accurately as I can about what he teaches, there is of course the possibility of involuntarily distortion of things. Besides from that, the only way to know what is true is to get the experience (knowledge) ourselves. And that is what the various techniques and practices are said to enable us to do.
