Some Concepts from Logosophy
We must warn that some terms and concepts used by the logosophical lexicon have a meaning that may quite differ from the common because the logosophical science comprehends a new set of realities with no connection with what has been expressed by philosophers, scholars or other sciences – including psychology – being these old or new.
The comprehensive explanation of these concepts can be found in the books by the author that may be downloaded freely from this website or purchased through one of the Logosophical Publishing Houses.
The conscious formation of one’s individuality cannot be successfully accomplished until we have confronted through our reason the need to carry on a sincere revision of our own concepts. Thus, a thorough examination of such concepts and their essence, if any, should be carried out, as well as their source and why have them been accepted.
To illustrate this, we are herein presenting some sections of the logosophical publications regarding some of the main concepts that are part of the logosophical knowledge from its original and conceptual point of view. However, we reiterate the suggestion to search for more information in publications about Logosophy to better understand these concepts, which, being of a high hierarchy, may be difficult to explain in just a few words.
The texts presented below were extracted from the following books: “Initiation Course Into Logosophy”, “Logosophical Exegesis”, “Logosophy, Science and Method”, “The Mechanism of Conscious Life”, and “The Spirit”.
Logosophy, when referring to the process of conscious evolution, is signaling the way to the secrets of our own psychological, mental and spiritual life. Moreover, this knowledge starts in the moment when the person, by his own free will, decides to take over his/her own life and puts an end to one without a purpose – living just for living. Therefore, building a new dimension for life and own individuality.
Human beings that take care of their own physical and spiritual life in a conscious manner obviously became better human beings. Logosophy says that this approach is just a dive at the surface, part of a bigger picture.
As we see it, conscious evolution begins with the process that leads the human being to self-knowledge. We refer to active, fruitful and positive evolution, not to the slow and passive evolution, which drags human beings toward a common destiny.
The evolution that takes place during our existence may be monotonous and the progress is slow. This is due to a lack of personal corroboration of each and every one of the movements that the spirit succeeds in undertaking regarding the degree of knowledge that one has in life. The “unconscious evolution” only leads people to a destiny with no transcendence.
However, the “process of unconscious evolution” can be stopped by a decision of oneself, by his own will as he begins the process of conscious evolution, fostered, stimulated and supported by the constant assistance of the logosophical teaching. The conscious evolution implies a change in state, in modality and in character thus acquiring superior qualities for the person, which culminates in the annulment of the old tendencies and the birth of a new individuality.
The process that leads to it is the path of one’s self-elevation through the cognition that broadens life, widens horizons and strengthens the spirit; filling the latter with happiness.
As a result of knowing the organization of our psychological and mental structure we can correctly conduct our process of conscious evolution. The effort to increase this knowledge will lead us to a better utilization of our energies and to a sharpening of our inner perception, since none of the aspects or details of our inner life should pass unnoticed to our conscious and perseverant observation. This achievement will help us improve all that is perfectible in our own selves, which implies a real advancement in evolution as well as a more substantial accumulation of knowledge.
In a word, the Universal Law of Evolution will allow us to improve, to the maximum, the means of carrying out the great conscious process of life, in the shortest possible time.
Belief and Knowledge
Logosophy has instituted as a principle that the word “belief” must the replaced by the word “knowledge”, because it is by knowing, and not by believing, that the human being becomes truly conscious of his life. In other words, of what he thinks and/or does.
Belief can dominate in a state of ignorance, but is inadmissible to all intelligent people sincerely yearning for the knowledge of the truth. People of narrow reach are prone to credulity, mostly because they were never enlightened about the benefits for their lives by the act of thinking and, above all, by the fact of knowing.
No one should ever venture to justify that, in order to be happy, one has to be barred from knowledge. Without being fully aware of what life and what destiny is required of him to know, how can a person fulfill what is expected of him as a free and rational being? How will he be able to satisfy the anguished longings of his spirit if one is deprived of the only possibility to fulfill them, by the source of knowledge?
How can we be the proprietor of our own life if do not know what thoughts do we have in our internal world? Mixing up the thoughts with the mind, the will, the understanding or the brain, makes it quite impossible! Logosophy presents the thoughts as entities that live in our mind or outside it, and may attain their own life, showing themselves at the moment of their manifestation.
What is the importance that you give to the thoughts in your life? Have you already considered that a person can be happy or unhappy in accordance with their thoughts? That if one implements the best thoughts one will have happiness and void troubles; however, if the worst thoughts are chosen, life will be bitter? Do you believe it to be impossible to differentiate ones from the others? To the logosopher, that is not only possible, it constitutes the higher prerogative that a human being can have.
Generally, people confuse thought with mind, understanding, the function of thinking, the brain, reasoning and even with the will, giving each of these words a common meaning that links them as if they were one and the same thing. Logosophy has made precise differentiations among these words, hence expressing the difference between the mind and each one of the faculties in its respective functions.
When exposing its cognitions, the logosophical science presents the one that refers to thoughts as the one of most transcendental and of vital importance to man. It affirms that the thoughts are psychological entities generated in the human mind, where they develop and even acquire a life of their own. It teaches how to know them, identify them, select them, and utilize them lucidly and correctly. Thoughts, their immateriality notwithstanding, are as visible and tangible as if they were endowed with corporality, such as a living creature or an inanimate object, which have a physical, corporal existence, visible to our eyes and can be touched by our physical hands. In fact, thoughts can be seen by the eyes of our intelligence and touched by the hands of our understanding, which are capable of fully verifying their subjective reality.
In dealing with these animated and autonomous entities, which can at a certain moment be in one mind and soon in another, the logosopher learns to differentiate his own thoughts from the extraneous ones, eliminating the bad while retaining the good. But one should not believe that this selection is easily done, or that it could be achieved by the mere fact of wanting to; some thoughts are practically the masters of one’s life, and he human being submits to them humbly since they are often stronger than his own will.
The Universal Laws
The Universal Laws manage the universe and maintain its equilibrium and harmony. Through them all that was created is in good order. They establish relationships of correspondence, of cause and effect. They prescribe norms of superior behavior during the progressive stages of improvement and betterment of the person.
The laws upon which the official science bases its investigations and discoveries emerged from the need to organize what relates to the material behavior or physical activity of the human biological organism, and of all kinds of processes that are a part of nature, which are subject to proof. No mention is made of the conscious prerogatives of the human being, nor of the evolution of its possibilities for reaching the higher spheres of the spirit.
The tasks of the universal laws, which Logosophy teaches, are identified with norms of a superior ethic, in synergy with its nature, and its orientation coincides with the venue of cognitions of a superior order that the logosopher cultivates. These laws establish a new relation between cause and effect that is conducive to an understanding of the broad panorama of human existence, while orienting and prescribing norms of conduct necessary to cover the successive stages of self-improvement.
We must admit that the laws of Creation are still barely known my mankind, and since they act simultaneously as attorneys and judges, most people ignore how they work and how they pass their sentences after judgment. By ignoring this, the human being is unable to know the facts of his inner life that are capable of exceeding his most fantastic lucubration’s every time a law expresses itself in harmony with the other laws.
When Logosophy enlightens the person to the mechanism of universal laws, it allows the individual to adjust its life to the reality established by them, freeing the person from the emptiness and moral oppression caused by the lack of knowledge of these laws. Therefore, he/she begins to control the area closest to him in which these laws act. That is precisely the area that each one occupies, that is one’s own life, the human being’s life, and as a result of the knowledge accumulated, the individual also learns that everything in the universe is accomplished through a series of processes.
Logosophy teaches how to know oneself, with method and knowledge. Logosophy is not just another theory: it is the human being turning within himself and discovering the superior life, his internal world, one’s psychological deficiencies, one’s thoughts, his/hers spirit, God and its Universal Laws.
Many are the ones that pretended to know themselves and have idealized ways to attain that objective. However, after a while, they just witness their failure. To know one’s self is a major undertaking, but it is possible. It is the human being facing his own deeper questions concerning himself. The subject is so important that, to know oneself, is in fact exploring the internal world and discovering the marvelous things that one will find there, such as his own Creator – that, however, will be in accordance with the advancement in the direction of the transcendental. From the very first experiences, the logosophical method will guide you to grasp a more profound knowledge of your own mind and its complex functioning.
This is the foundation of self-knowledge. However, it will be necessary to pursuit of another highly important aspect of the investigation: the knowledge of one’s own psychological deficiencies, which by their presence, obstruct or hinder one’s conscious evolution.
Therefore, Logosophy invites the human being to carry out a complete study of his psychology – character, tendencies, thoughts, qualities, deficiencies and whatever relates directly or indirectly to the movements of one’s mental faculties and contemplates his spiritual state. This is precisely the substance of the logosophical method: it guides the individual toward a new and solid conduct in the way he/she deals with himself.
The Mental System
The mental system, composed of the superior mind and the inferior mind, is the most tangible proof of the ingenious creation of the human psychological structure. Its reality becomes evident to him as soon as the Logosophical cognitions unveil its existence. Conscious evolution is the result of the effectiveness of this wonderful system.
Our science increases the importance of the human mind by presenting a conception, which elevates it to the category of a system. This system is composed of two minds: the superior mind and the inferior mind; both have equal constitution, but differ in the way they function and in their prerogatives. The superior mind has unlimited possibilities and is reserved for the spirit who makes use of it when one’s conscience awakens to the reality that connects it to the transcendent or metaphysical world. The objective of the inferior mind is to take care of the material needs of the physical entity or soul, and one’s conscience may intervene in its activities.
As the activities of the intelligence become organized in the inferior mind according to the directives of the logosophical method, the faculties of the superior mind, abandoning their immobility, gradually begin to perform their functions, a fact that interlinks the activities of the two minds. In other words, as the inferior faculties, trained in the disciplines of the transcendent cognition, come into contact with the superior faculties activated by the conscious progress, a harmonious coordination is established between the movements that gear the mechanism of the two minds.
From the moment the intelligence of the common or ordinary mind assimilates the logosophical knowledge, with which the individual conscience becomes gradually integrated, it extends the limits of its possibilities until it comes into contact with the sphere of the superior mind that in turn amplifies the volume of its creative and cognitive capacity in proportion to the degree of evolution reached by the individual.
The law of evolution allows the human being to reconstruct his own life by means of a true process of conscious evolution, redeeming from their own mistakes and faults, and thus converting the person into his own savior. Each mistake committed puts him/her in a state of moral debt. The good, consciously done, is a moral asset or plus point.
Given that the individual has been equipped with and admirable mental system and equally important sensitive and instinctive systems, allowing one to freely act in two immense worlds, the physical and the metaphysical, it is logical to accept that these so beautiful and transcendent abilities, that constitute great mysteries of life, should also be complemented by the ability to redeem one’s soul from all the errors and faults committed, a fact that converts the individual into a true redeemer of his or her own self.
Logosophy has demonstrated with irrefutable evidence that in the mind resides the evil, which one does to himself and to fellow citizen. Ignorance plays a preponderant and decisive role in the affirmation that we have just made. In the shadows of ignorance are generated the most harmless thoughts and the gloomiest ideas. Evil, which is the origin of all the errors and faults incurred by the individual and, at the same time, the source of human unhappiness, must be combated in the only way possible: by eliminating the causes that produce its existence. This is not easy, nor is it impossible.
In order that self-redemption becomes a fact, it is essential that one begin by not committing any more faults: to stop accumulating blames or debts – this is the first step. However, the following question will arise: what will we do with the mistakes already incurred? Each fault has its volume and its inevitable consequences. Let us not waste time in lamentations or be naive believing that there exist easy means of eliminating them.
The laws cannot be infringed with impunity, by committing faults and them trying to get rid of them. But one can surely and gradually, redeems oneself mistakes and errors from his/her guilt by practicing rigorous compliance with the process of self-improvement. If the good achieved is extended to one’s fellow citizen – the greater the number, the better – this will ensure “payment” of the debt. Nevertheless, this “payment” will only be guaranteed on the condition that one does not incur on the same faults again.
ach individual will find, within himself, hereditary assets that he has been forming through his own generations. The flow of that inheritance may be experienced, for instance, when discovering within oneself a marked inclination towards a specific science, art or skill. The ease with which he carries on his studies, and the ideas that help his comprehension as he progresses towards full mastery of the knowledge to which he aspires, will clearly indicate that one’s own inheritance is at work.
Humans will be what they want to be if they can add to their knowledge and their strengths, the knowledge of their own inheritance.
The assets of knowledge cannot be inherited through ignorance. This is why it is necessary to activate the field of one’s own possibilities so that inheritance can be allowed to manifest itself whenever the opportunity arises.
