In a mere twenty-five years, Samael Aun Weor wrote volumes upon volumes and gave thousands of lectures. Here we have collected a handful of memorable quotes.

Living Well

"When one thinks differently and positively about people, it is a sign that one is changing." - The Revolution of the Dialectic

The sun of truth rises in the human being and illuminates his world when he lifts his mind from the darkness of ignorance and selfishness into the light of wisdom and altruism. - Aztec Christic Magic

Know thyself! This was written on the posterior part of the threshold of the temples of mysteries in ancient Greece. This is the only purpose of life, that the human being must know himself as a child of God, as a God himself over the Earth, so that the Earth can be transformed into a beautiful garden where liberty, equality, and fraternity is the law of love for all humans. - Aztec Christic Magic

Cruelty will continue existing on the face of the Earth as long as we have not learned to put ourselves in the place of others. - Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology

The human society is the extension of the individual. Therefore, if we really want a radical change, if we want a better world, we need to change individually. - The Revolution of the Dialectic

"In order to be truly free, one needs to be sensitive and humane." - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

When one knows the how and the why of the mind, when one knows the different functionalisms of the mind, then one can control it. Thus, the mind becomes a useful and perfect instrument through which we can work for the benefit of humanity. - The Revolution of the Dialectic

A soft word pacifies anger. Persuasion has more power than violence. If a violent person wishes to attack us, then a gentle phrase should be sent unto this person; thus, his violence will be pacified. - Tarot and Kabbalah

Be gentle in order to listen; merciful in order to judge. - The Yellow Book

Every bitterness in this world has its origins in the search for security and fear. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

We live our entire miserable life going from one extreme to another: victory, defeat; like, dislike; pleasure, pain; failure, success; this, that, etc. We need to free ourselves from the tyranny of the opposites. This is only possible by learning how to live from moment to moment without any type of abstractions, without any dreams and without any fantasies. - The Revolution of the Dialectic

In life, the only thing of importance is a radical, total, and definitive change. The rest, frankly, is of no importance at all. - The Great Rebellion

"People who have very little spiritual values within, who are internally poor, always seek something external to make themselves complete." - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

All the diverse ideas that emerge and that make us believe that we have the necessity of something exterior in order to be happy are an obstacle for our perfection. - Cosmic Teachings of a Lama

Those who want to acquire money, a magnificent social position, virtues, satisfactions of all types, etc., with the purpose of attaining true contentment, are totally mistaken, because all of that is based on envy, and we can never arrive at the harbor of the tranquil and content heart through the path of envy. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

It is essential to comprehend that the true joy of the tranquil heart cannot be bought or sold; it is born within us with absolute naturalness and in a spontaneous manner only when we have comprehended in depth the very causes of discontentment: jealousy, envy, greed, etc. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

We have to say the truth always, at any cost, and no matter what. - The lecture “About Alcyone”


God has no preference for anyone. All human beings without distinction of sex, race, creed or color are beloved children of the Father. They have the same rights... God has no racial prejudice. He loves all his children with infinite love, without distinction of sex, race, creed or color. We must love all human beings. We must give even the last drop of our blood for all our brothers and sisters who belong to this great human family. - Igneous Rose


Love is the best religion available to the human species. - The Perfect Matrimony
Indeed, only one unique and cosmic religion truly exists. This religion assumes different forms according to the times and the needs of humanity. Therefore, religious conflicts are an absurdity, because at their base all religions are only modifications of the universal cosmic religion. - The Perfect Matrimony

Any attempt at liberation, no matter how great it might be, if it does not take into consideration the necessity of dissolving the ego, it is condemned to failure. - Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology

Love and Sex

"The hour has arrived to see the sexual functions not as a cause for shame, taboo, or sin, but as something infinitely elevated, sublime, and terrifically divine." - Parsifal Unveiled

Sex can liberate or enslave the human being. No one can attain integrity, no one can be deeply Self-realized, without sexual energy. Sex is the power of the Soul. - Alchemy and Kabbalah in the Tarot

"Behind every kiss, there must be a prayer..." - Parsifal Unveiled

"Men were made for women, and women for men, because Nature is wise in its designs. What man and woman have to learn is to enjoy themselves without hurting each other, and the answer for this is Sexual Magic." - The Revolution of Beelzebub

"I swear to you by the eternal living God that by no means is the realization of your Inner Self possible if you remove from your life the joy of love, of Sexual Magic." - Parsifal Unveiled


The hour has arrived to abandon theories and go directly to what is practical. - The Zodiacal Course

Wherever there is light, there is consciousness. - The Great Rebellion

"Opinions, concepts, theories, hypotheses, do not signify verification, experimentation, and complete consciousness of this or that phenomena." - Magic of the Runes

We should not mistake the Truth with opinions. Many think that the Truth is this or that, or that the Truth is within this or that book, or within this or that belief or idea, etc. Whosoever wants to experience the Truth should not mistake beliefs, ideas, opinions and theories with that which is the Truth. We must experience the Truth in a direct, practical and real manner; this is only possible in the stillness and silence of the mind, and this is achieved by means of meditation. - The Revolution of the Dialectic

Transforming the Mind

"Knowledge and comprehension are different. Knowledge is of the mind. Comprehension is of the heart." - Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology

The one who receives everything as new, with an open mind, abandoning the burden of the past, preconceptions, prejudices, jealousies, fanaticisms, etc., marches victoriously along the path of authentic refinement. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

"...the feeling that people owe us something or the pain we experience is due to the evil deeds which others caused against us, etc., are obstacles for all internal progress of the soul." - Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology

Masters, Gurus, Disciples

In this day and age, everybody wants to be a Master. Notwithstanding, we state that there is only one Master, this is the inner Christ, which enlightens every human being who comes into the world. Thus, only Christ is the Master. Only the resplendent “I Am” is the Master. - The Major Mysteries

We advise disciples not to follow anyone. Let them follow themselves. Each one should follow his resplendent and luminous inner Being. - The Major Mysteries


One has to awaken consciousness. Without the consciousness awake, the path is abandoned, because there is no seriousness. - Tarot and Kabbalah

Whosoever wants to awaken the consciousness in the Superior Worlds must begin by awakening it in the here and now. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

When we truly comprehend the teachings we attend, then we do not need to memorize them nor transform them into ideals. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education

We cannot become truly free as long as we commit the mistake of comparing ourselves with the stored recollections of our memory and with the ideal of what we have the ambition of becoming or not becoming. - Fundamentals of Gnostic Education


...we can count with our fingers those who are prepared for Gnosis. Up until now (1956), I have only known two people who are prepared for Gnosis: an illiterate Indian Mama (shaman) and a woman. - The Major Mysteries
