"When one discovers the real cause of so much misery and bitterness, it becomes obvious that something can be done..." - Samael Aun Weor
Do you want a better world and a better life? Do you thirst for genuine happiness? You can transcend suffering when you know about:
• The underlying cause of the world's pain and problems
• What consciousness is and how it works
• How cause and effect create your life
• The power within us that can cleanse the mind of faults and darkness
This book embraces and clarifies the essential wisdom within all the world's religions and spiritual traditions. Yet, change does not come from belief or theories. Real change comes from self-knowledge: gnosis. The Great Rebellion explains how all of the world's problems addiction, war, pollution, starvation, crime come from within us. By changing ourselves within, we change the world around us. This is the genuine foundation of every great spiritual tradition in the world. By truly becoming better people, the world becomes a better place.
Looking for Radical Change?
This simple yet provocative work is a profound analysis of the spiritual and moral decadence of our times. While presenting the difficult and oftentimes morbid issues we face as a humanity, this work is elegant in its precision and inspiring in its call to action on an individual and social level. This is one of my favorite works by the author due to its poetic nature; it dives into the marrow of our deepest economic, social, and moral problems and addresses them with a voice of compassion that is both tender and fierce.
Although it is a smaller work considering Samael Aun Weor's repertoire, it is one of the most accessible and inspiring due to the way the author cuts to the chase and challenges the reader to challenge him or herself. It provides the fundamentals of esoteric psychology and essentials of Gnostic Christianity, which is the esoteric significance of the Christ. He emphasizes in the latter half of the work the need to incarnate this impersonal, universal and divine force or intelligence, which religions have called Christ, Khrestos, Chenrezig, Allah, Avalokiteshvara, Kuan-Yin, Quetzalcoatl, and many other names. This is in order to accelerate our own process of spiritual development and change, the sole purpose of which is to overcome our suffering as well as the suffering of others.
This is a book that both new and older students come back to; written near the end of Samael Aun Weor's lifetime, it synthesizes the entire breadth and span of his seventy or so books. It stands alone in its poignancy of both subject and style; this is a great introduction for new students and a great guide for the experienced to deepen spiritual practice. However, as with most of Samael Aun Weor's works, it is confrontational, which for many can be a turn-off, but for the very same reason can be food for the soul. This work is inspiring for those who are tired of suffering and want to change, not for the complacent, the stubborn and the proud. If you are sick of searching through so many spiritual and occult books without finding solace, give this work a try. It is lucid, clear and profound.
