About a year ago, several of my students were interested in studying philosophy and expressed interest to me that they really wanted to dive into the more esoteric forms of knowledge. I can identify as I recall the days of being a brooding teen and not thinking much of my peers. If only I knew how common that may have been!
Still, I felt a great hesitancy because I don’t feel I know enough to help guide others on their quest for spiritual enlightenment. Not in the least. I feel quite the opposite. I feel as though I have been searching and struggling trying to tie ribbons together in the dark for most of my adult life to this point. I had some opportunities and guidance but never at a rate that I felt that was fast enough.
So, we decided to meet once a week and discuss topics like the nature of consciousness, meditation, symbolism, and higher states of reality and our attunement to them. I found myself swimming in search of ways to guide our ongoing discussions in a gradual manner and then some of my students found the Spirit Science videos on YouTube. Being cautious, I watched a few episodes first just to see where things where going.
After watching a few of the films, I found that they were excellent resources to introduce students to topics ranging from the power of thought, to male and female energies, to the awareness of higher realities and our consciousness. As I watched, I also realized that most of the films were knee deep in the writings and teachings of others, which they do mention and try to offer some form of documentation to. I created a space on Phrenes dedicated to examining these topics in depth – as my long term goal is to create a curriculum, or school, that will help guide young eager minds to discover these ideas for themselves in order to help change (or shift?) or world into a better one.
