The Awakening

the awakening

It became a common phenomenon that people have a sudden glimpse of consciousness which changes their life course.
‘My life was shallow and meaningless,’ they say, ‘I woke up one day feeling empty and realised something was missing. I had a good job and a nice life, but I was incomplete. At this point, I understood that the material world’s wealth can’t substitute the lack of spirituality.’
A change of heart, or an awakening, they call it.

Dematerialisation – physical death

Tarot Death

Let’s talk about… death.

  • When am I going to die?

Some schools of thought believe that the moment of death is predetermined; as a result, it is also predictable. We tend to think that even eternity has a beginning and an end.
‘When I am going to die’ is the sort of question one should never ask. Some affairs concern humans and others are mysteries with reason. Some veils should not be lifted, and mysteries that not be touched. Sometimes people forget these simple, common sense laws and want to reach beyond their limits. Thus, death is inevitable, but the moment of death is unpredictable.
In the Western astrological tradition, for example, Saturn crossing the Read more Dematerialisation – physical death

The non-binary nature of the Tarot

GD vs UET III

The dualistic point of view dominates our world and perception.
Yet, no matter how hard they tried to alter reality, the triple character of things remained unchanged in nature and has been preserved in the forms of various concepts and laws.
The Christian Church has the Holy Trinity. Trinity means three. By the Holy Trinity we mean Read more The non-binary nature of the Tarot

The extra mile

The Complete Esoteric System

The difference between the ordinary and extraordinary is going that legendary extra mile.
Going the extra mile means that one is willing to make a special effort to achieve something.
It also reveals the difference between what is considered “exoteric”, the mundane life of the material world, and what is vaguely called “esoteric” and signifies the intangible “spiritual” world. One can settle for the obvious and tangible or can go the extra mile to discover the hidden. This world, however, is inaccessible for most people.
It took me twenty-five years of research, study and practical experience to have the outlines of my own esoteric system. It was not my intention to create a new system, but I wanted to understand and rectify the existing one. It was a task of backwards-engineering and rediscovering a lost, forgotten and altered system. In that regard, it is not “my system” but the system as it was originally designed. My only merit is walking that extra mile. My instruments were questioning, verifying, comparing, and take nothing for granted. The idea that “everything we know is wrong” haunted me. I always felt that something was not right, but I could not put my finger exactly on what was that. (…)
My first significant breakthrough was discovering what somewhat ironically I called “the God’s formula,” and which is three by four makes twelve. Identifying what the threes are, respectively, the fours throughout all the branches of the esoteric sciences, became my primordial working method. (…)
I published the core of my findings along with my first Tarot deck, the Unified Esoteric Tarot, in 2018.
