The Foundations, ("Circle of Light", "Esoterism Studies", "Esoterism Academy", "Religious Philosophy Foundation"), are Spiritual Organizations, which have a purely educational character.
The Publications have a purely practical nature, to illuminate the phenomenon of existence. We try to look at our subjects from various, different, perspectives, precisely to illuminate as best we can the object of our contemplation. Some repetitions are done not out of blindness but for purely educational purposes.
We believe that we deal with all traditions, religions, theories and views, objectively. The reference to the various traditions is made to show that ultimately the Truth is one, regardless of its various historical expressions.
Our purpose is not only to give something from our understanding, but also to share the knowledge with everyone. If you have any question, suggestion, or opinion, about the topics published, we will be happy to share them with us.

Welcome to the Land of Truth (whose deepest and truest expression is the Silence that Rises in Understanding).

Thank you for being here!

In the Abode of Existence


In the Abode of Existence


In the Abode of Existence, there is no room for doubt, fear, or ignorance. The True Man knows that he is a spark of the Divine, a ray of the Eternal Light, a drop of the Ocean of Bliss. He does not sleep in the illusion of the world, nor does he wake up in the anxiety of the ego. He sleeps and wakes with compassion for all beings, and with gratitude for the gift of life. He does not seek to exploit, oppress, or harm anyone, for he sees himself in everyone. He does not think only of himself, for he knows that he is not separate from the Whole. He is not a human hyena, who feeds on the flesh of others, but a human angel, who spreads the fragrance of love.

All things work their way in the Abode of Existence, for there is a Perfect Plan behind everything. The True Man does not meddle with those things that are beyond his understanding and his capabilities. He does not try to control, manipulate, or interfere with the Divine Will. He trusts that there is Someone Else Who Takes Care of it all, and that Someone Else is none other than his own Higher Self, his own Inner Guide, his own True Master. He surrenders to the Flow of Life, and follows the Voice of his Heart.

Wherever he travels in the Abode of Existence, he always finds beauty, wisdom, and joy. The Depths of the Horizon are illuminated by the distant glimpses of Truth, which shine like stars in the dark night. The True Man does not need any external sources of light, for he carries his own Inner Light within him. He does not need any external sources of knowledge, for he has access to his own Inner Wisdom within him. He does not need any external sources of happiness, for he has found his own Inner Bliss within him.

Freedom is always lonely in the Abode of Existence, for it is beyond the realm of human thought, human culture, human society. The True Man does not belong to any group, any religion, any ideology. He does not conform to any norms, any rules, any expectations. He does not depend on any approval, any praise, any recognition. He is free from all attachments, all desires, all fears. He is free to be himself, to express himself, to realize himself.

In the Abode of Existence, there is only one place where the True Man can find his ultimate fulfillment: the Altar of Truth, where the Flame of the Infinite Burns. Only in Absolute Silence can he reach here, for silence is the language of God. Only by offering himself can he enter here, for sacrifice is the key to God. Only by becoming nothing can he become everything here, for emptiness is the door to God. In the Eternal Flame of the Timeless, he burns away all his impurities, all his limitations, all his illusions. He becomes one with the Fire of Love, the Fire of Wisdom, the Fire of Bliss. He becomes one with God.


Στην Κατοικία της Ύπαρξης


Στην Κατοικία της Ύπαρξης, δεν υπάρχει χώρος για αμφιβολία, φόβο ή άγνοια. Ο Αληθινός Άνθρωπος ξέρει ότι είναι μια σπίθα του Θείου, μια ακτίνα του Αιώνιου Φωτός, μια σταγόνα του Ωκεανού της Ευδαιμονίας. Δεν κοιμάται στην ψευδαίσθηση του κόσμου, ούτε ξυπνά στο άγχος του εγώ. Κοιμάται και ξυπνά με συμπόνια για όλα τα όντα και με ευγνωμοσύνη για το δώρο της ζωής. Δεν επιδιώκει να εκμεταλλευτεί, να καταπιέσει ή να βλάψει κανέναν, γιατί βλέπει τον εαυτό του σε όλους. Δεν σκέφτεται μόνο τον εαυτό του, γιατί ξέρει ότι δεν είναι χωρισμένος από το Όλο. Δεν είναι μια ανθρώπινη ύαινα, που τρέφεται με τη σάρκα των άλλων, αλλά ένας ανθρώπινος άγγελος, που σκορπάει το άρωμα της αγάπης.

Όλα τα πράγματα λειτουργούν με τον τρόπο τους στην Κατοικία της Ύπαρξης, γιατί υπάρχει ένα Τέλειο Σχέδιο πίσω από τα πάντα. Ο Αληθινός Άνθρωπος δεν ανακατεύεται με εκείνα τα πράγματα που είναι πέρα από την κατανόηση και τις δυνατότητές του. Δεν προσπαθεί να ελέγξει, να χειραγωγήσει ή να παρέμβει στη Θεία Βούληση. Εμπιστεύεται ότι υπάρχει Κάποιος Άλλος που Φροντίζει για όλα και ότι Κάποιος Άλλος δεν είναι άλλος από τον δικό του Ανώτερο Εαυτό, τον δικό του Εσωτερικό Οδηγό, τον δικό του Αληθινό Διδάσκαλο. Παραδίδεται στη Ροή της Ζωής και ακολουθεί τη Φωνή της Καρδιάς του.

Όπου κι αν ταξιδεύει στην Κατοικία της Ύπαρξης, βρίσκει πάντα ομορφιά, σοφία και χαρά. Τα Βάθη του Ορίζοντα φωτίζονται από τις μακρινές αναλαμπές της Αλήθειας, που λάμπουν σαν αστέρια στη σκοτεινή νύχτα. Ο Αληθινός Άνθρωπος δεν χρειάζεται εξωτερικές πηγές φωτός, γιατί φέρει το δικό του Εσωτερικό Φως μέσα του. Δεν χρειάζεται εξωτερικές πηγές γνώσης, γιατί έχει πρόσβαση στη δική του Εσωτερική Σοφία μέσα του. Δεν χρειάζεται εξωτερικές πηγές ευτυχίας, γιατί έχει βρει τη δική του Εσωτερική Ευδαιμονία μέσα του.

Η ελευθερία είναι πάντα μοναχική στην Κατοικία της Ύπαρξης, γιατί είναι πέρα από τη σφαίρα της ανθρώπινης σκέψης, του ανθρώπινου πολιτισμού, της ανθρώπινης κοινωνίας. Ο Αληθινός Άνθρωπος δεν ανήκει σε καμία ομάδα, καμία θρησκεία, καμία ιδεολογία. Δεν συμμορφώνεται με κανένα πρότυπο, κανένα κανόνα, καμία προσδοκία. Δεν εξαρτάται από καμία έγκριση, κανένα έπαινο, καμία αναγνώριση. Είναι απαλλαγμένος από κάθε προσκόλληση, κάθε επιθυμία, κάθε φόβο. Είναι ελεύθερος να είναι ο εαυτός του, να εκφραστεί, να συνειδητοποιήσει τον εαυτό του.

Στην Κατοικία της Ύπαρξης, υπάρχει μόνο ένα μέρος όπου ο Αληθινός Άνθρωπος μπορεί να βρει την απόλυτη εκπλήρωσή του: ο Βωμός της Αλήθειας, όπου καίει η Φλόγα του Άπειρου. Μόνο στην Απόλυτη Σιωπή μπορεί να φτάσει εδώ, γιατί η σιωπή είναι η γλώσσα του Θεού. Μόνο με την προσφορά του εαυτού του μπορεί να μπει εδώ, γιατί η θυσία είναι το κλειδί για τον Θεό. Μόνο με το να γίνει τίποτα μπορεί να γίνει τα πάντα εδώ, γιατί το κενό είναι η πόρτα προς τον Θεό. Στην Αιώνια Φλόγα του Διαχρονικού, καίει όλες του τις ακαθαρσίες, όλους τους περιορισμούς, όλες τις ψευδαισθήσεις του. Γίνεται ένα με τη Φωτιά της Αγάπης, τη Φωτιά της Σοφίας, τη Φωτιά της Ευδαιμονίας. Γίνεται ένα με τον Θεό.



Our Prayer

The Path Within


O Cosmos, we stand at the precipice of the Absolute, gazing into the void of the Unknown. We search for a way to transcend the bounds of thought and ego, to experience the essence of our deepest being.

The Buddha, the Masters of the East Upanishads, Orpheus, Jesus – all these wise beings have pointed us towards the Path. But it is not a path that is external, not a journey that can be traversed by the feet. It is a path that lies within, a journey that must be undertaken by the heart and the mind.

We must let go of the external orientations that nurture and educate us, that direct us towards other goals. We must look inward, to the stillness and silence that resides within. We must listen to the whispers of our soul, to the voice that speaks of the Absolute.

Krishnamurti and other modern Sages have shown us that it is possible to experience the Absolute, to transcend the limitations of thought and ego. They have shown us that it is not a mystery, not a miracle, but a possibility that lies within our human nature.

So let us embark on this journey, this Path that few follow. Let us let go of the burdens that weigh us down, the attachments that bind us. Let us embrace the unknown, the uncertainty, the chaos that lies within.

For in the depths of the Absolute, we will find the stillness and peace that we seek. We will find the answers to the questions that have plagued us for centuries. We will find the Truth that lies within.

Let us be brave, let us be bold, let us be fearless. Let us take the step into the void, into the unknown. For it is there that we will find the Absolute, the essence of our being. It is there that we will find our true nature, our true self.

May we be guided on this journey by the wise words of the Sages, by the light of the Absolute that shines within us. May we find the strength and courage to let go of the old, to embrace the new. May we find the peace and stillness that we seek, the Truth that lies within.


Glimpses of the Absolute


Within each of us lies the potential to transcend the limitations of ordinary mind and experience a deeper reality - what some traditions call the Absolute, the Ground of Being, or God. While this state of unity or peak experience has often been considered the domain solely of mystics and saints, the truth is that the capacity dwells dormant in every human soul. It is our essential nature, awaiting discovery through disciplined inner work.

All genuine spiritual paths point to the same destination, though using different languages and methods. At their core, they offer a process of liberation from identification with separate ego and gradual awakening to our intrinsic divine essence. This involves cultivating noble virtues, practicing presence of mind through meditation, and cultivating wisdom through inquiry into the nature of reality and self.

Over time, such disciplines help peel away layers of superficial conditioning to reveal our true blissful and peaceful self - one with the fundamental pure consciousness that underlies all forms. In that state of inward stillness and clarity, the usual boundaries between subject and object fall away. One perceives directly that all is contained within the one infinite life and knows directly one's identity with the eternal. Though ineffable, this realization brings transcendent peace, love, creativity and compassion.

While glimpses of the Absolute may come through grace to anyone at any time, consistent experience depends on committed effort. The seeker must firmly resolve to strip away all that obscures their true nature like the proverbial onion, layer by layer. With patient practice of presence and purification, the trappings of small self dissolve, and one may abide as peaceful, blissful awareness itself - fully awake in every moment to life's deepest meaning. Then daily living becomes worship, and ordinary reality is transfigured by love, joy, wisdom and service. This is the fruit of following the perennial path with heart and will - a taste of our shared spiritual potential.




Constantinos’s quotes

"A "Soul" that out of ignorance keeps making mistakes is like a wounded bird with helpless wings that cannot fly high in the sky."— Constantinos Prokopiou






Neglecting to praise the worthy deters people from emulating them; just as not prizing rare treasures deters a man from becoming a thief; or ignoring the things which awaken desire keeps the heart at rest.

Therefore, the wise ruler does not suggest unnecessary things, but seeks to satisfy the minds of his people. He seeks to allay appetites but strengthen bones. He ever tries by keeping people in ignorance to keep them satisfied and those who have knowledge he restrains from evil. If he, himself, practices restraint then everything is in quietness.


Quieting People

Neglecting to praise the worthy:

Neglecting to acknowledge and praise individuals who deserve recognition can discourage others from emulating their positive qualities.

Just as not appreciating rare treasures deters a person from engaging in theft, the absence of recognition can hinder the development of desirable traits in others.

By recognizing and praising the worthy, we can inspire others to strive for excellence.

Ignoring the things that awaken desire:

When we disregard or ignore the things that evoke desire, we can maintain a sense of contentment and inner peace.

By not constantly seeking external stimuli, we can cultivate a state of tranquility within ourselves.

This approach allows us to find satisfaction in what we already have, rather than constantly chasing after new desires.

The wise ruler's approach:

A wise ruler understands the importance of satisfying the minds of the people they govern.

They do not unnecessarily burden their subjects with irrelevant information or demands.

Instead, they focus on allaying appetites and reinforcing the overall well-being of their people.

The wise ruler restrains those with knowledge from engaging in harmful actions and promotes a culture of restraint and tranquility.

The benefits of quietness:

When individuals practice restraint and embrace a state of quietness, harmony and peace prevail.

By prioritizing calmness and self-control, both on an individual and societal level, conflicts can be minimized.

The pursuit of quietness allows for personal growth, contentment, and a more harmonious coexistence.

Embracing quietness

Quieting people involves recognizing the worthy, ignoring unnecessary desires, and fostering a state of tranquility. The wise ruler seeks to satisfy the minds of their people by allaying appetites and promoting restraint. By embracing quietness, individuals can experience personal growth and contribute to a more peaceful society. Remember to appreciate the positive qualities in others, find contentment in the present, and practice self-restraint for a harmonious existence.
