Celebrating the start of a truly unique spiritual organization

Celebrating the start of a truly unique spiritual organization

Two weeks ago we celebrated the formal start of The Aetherius Society, on August 2nd. The Aetherius Society is a truly unique spiritual organisation which gives us opportunities we have never had before to help others and attain enlightenment. This is the path we now call King Yoga.

As part of these celebrations we have selected the following inspiring extracts from the words of our founder, Master of Yoga Dr George King, talking in 1984 about our humble beginnings and the importance of working together – like so many lighthouses around the world – to inspire humanity towards realization of our true Divine heritage.

‘The Aetherius Society – A unique organisation’

“From tiny beginnings in 1955 The Aetherius Society has been evolved into a tremendous spiritual power for good in the world. There’s no other organisation like this, nor, according to the Great Masters, has there ever been. When I first founded The Aetherius Society in 1955, of course I was ridiculed because my thoughts, expressions and even spiritual ambitions were so far ahead of their time that they were not understood or even appreciated.

The Evolution Of Mankind Is Now Being Speeded Up…

The Evolution Of Mankind Is Now Being Speeded Up…

We are all on a great journey.

Yet both the origin and destiny of our journey can seem obscure at best. As such, we can be inclined to subjugate this greater journey with more obvious and immediate goals in life, or else ignore it altogether as something unknowable, unfathomable, and even unbelievable. It can be something for others to think or worry about rather than ourselves. It is the journey of our soul.

Paul-Nugent-Poem-The-Story-So-FarIn The Aetherius Society and the path we call King Yoga, we are taught that the journey of the soul is our most important journey over which we, alone, have complete control. Indeed, our primary goal is to grasp this journey and make it the overriding priority in our life, governing all other major choices that we make. This soul journey is not only the reason we are born but a continuation of that same journey we have been making since the beginning of Time, through life after life. It is the inevitable journey we are each making as aspects of God through evolution.

What is love?

What is Love?

In King Yoga we say that a true spiritual path is not just a theory – it is a way of life that can change the world.

If there is anything that will change the world, it is love!

Not the love we typically experience, but true, unconditional love.

Selfless prayer is one of the most magnificent expressions of unconditional love, and it is something that every one of us can do.

This post is the fourth in a series from a book called Prayer Energy, written by international bestselling author Richard Lawrence with Mark Bennett. You can find links to the other parts at the end of this post.

In this fourth post is a deeper and more complete description of unconditional love – one that we can study, contemplate upon and integrate into our practice and our everyday lives.

Wouldn’t that be a way to change the world!

Say it with feeling

Say it with feeling

In King Yoga, we say that a true spiritual path does not require blind belief – all it requires is that you experience its truth for yourself.

Prayer is the transmission of spiritual energy. Spiritual energy is a real force. It is not a fantasy or wishful thinking. It is as real as electricity or any other “physical” energy.

Before long, you will begin to physically feel the energy as it flows through you. You will not only feel inspired mentally – but you will actually have a tangible sensation of this power flowing through your aura and chakras.

Anyone can do this!

How to pray

How to pray

In King Yoga we say that the spiritual path is not about hoping to God for random miracles. Instead, it is about your ability to make miracles happen!

Prayer is one of the many ways in King Yoga that we can all help to create miracles – in our own lives, yes, but more importantly in the lives of others who need this help.

This is not prayer in the conventional sense of asking God for a favor, but in the yogic sense of radiating spiritual energy.

Ready or not – you are now

Ready Or Not – You Are Now

Many centuries ago a phrase of ancient truth was coined: when the pupil is ready the teacher appears. Master of Yoga Dr George King commented on this in a personal development class in 1966:

The teacher has to, by law, take the next step with those pupils who are ready, and if he cannot do so then the right teacher is brought along to be able to do so. This is one of the Laws of Karma. It is greater than all of us; and it is greater than the world; and it is greater than the solar system and even the suns, because it is one of the great laws. We have known about it for thousands of years on Earth. It appertains not only to this Earth, but all inhabited planets throughout this galaxy.

What is extraterrestrial life really like?

If you believe in extraterrestrial life, you have probably gazed up at the stars and wondered: what is it really like? We hear stories about this race or that race that is supposedly visiting Earth – but what is true, and what is simply someone’s vivid imagination?

However vivid someone’s imagination may be, it cannot compare to the unlimited imagination of the Creative Source that brought it all into being in the beginning. What are we really, after all, but figments of the Creator’s imagination, floating in its infinite sea of mind – one day to return to the macro-cosmic bliss of fully-conscious oneness … ?!

My King Yoga Experience – Your King Yoga Experience

My King Yoga Experience – Your King Yoga Experience

A quest begins …

When I was growing up I was very interested in spirituality, religion and the meaning of life.

I quickly became indifferent to the puzzled looks and concerned mutterings of people around me, including classmates of course, and sometimes even teachers, who couldn’t understand why I cared. In fact, in some cases they even seemed to feel threatened by my show of interest in anything at all beyond the mundane – spiritual or not. It was as if they perceived the very act of questioning as a passive aggressive challenge to their beloved status quo. As if I were unknowingly attacking the materialistic axis around which ‘normal people’s’ interests revolve …

Faith and The Power of Affirmation

Faith and the power of affirmation

Some people find it difficult to have faith in themselves, in external things, or even in a higher power. These people may pride themselves on being realists. While realism is a good thing, this word may be used to hide a fear of reaching beyond what can be seen and touched. Some so-called realists experience more obstacles and anxieties than those who have boundless faith and optimism, because they have a limited view of reality that can only offer further limitation.

What is faith?

When people say they have no faith in God, or a higher power, it is because they cling to material things and these form their reality. By its very nature, confusion and limitation must result. It seems logical that when one looks upwards at the planets and the stars; outwards at the beauty of Nature and inwards at the rich resources of our soul, that there is a creator and higher power behind it all, very much greater than we are. Faith is not an empty thing; it is born from humility, awe and wonder at the perfection of creation; it is a stage after belief and an essential stage before wisdom and enlightenment.

Mediumship – Séance or Science?

Mediumship – Séance or Science?Most mediums are pretty vague about what exactly they do. They use a type of psychic condition, be it light or deep, and receive through some method, a message. This comes from an intelligence who is not physically incarnate and who might be good, bad or, very often, indifferent.

Sometimes the communication will be delivered through the voice of the medium which requires them to enter trance. In nearly all cases, this will be what Dr George King describes as a negative trance. In this state, the channel negates their consciousness and allows themselves to be taken over by the communicating entity. Dr King stated that such a trance condition is extremely dangerous because the medium has little or no control over the state they are entering, and therefore could at some stage be easily possessed by a malevolent force. I strongly recommend Dr King’s brilliant lecture, “Trance – Its Various Types“.
