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!

The Transcendental State of Stillness: A Journey into the Silence of the Mind


The Transcendental State of Stillness: A Journey into the Silence of the Mind


In the labyrinth of human consciousness, there exists a realm that transcends the ordinary, a sanctuary where the cacophonous noise of the external world fades away into silence. This realm is the state of stillness of mind, an esoteric experience that defies conventional understanding. In the depths of this profound stillness, one discovers a space where the self dissolves, time and existence converge, and the essence of truth is unveiled.

The Nature of Stillness

Stillness of mind is not an absence of thought; it is the transcendence of thought. It is a state where the incessant chatter of the ego, the ceaseless mental noise, and the whirlwind of desires come to a halt. In this stillness, one is not preoccupied with the past or the future. There is no worry, no regret, no anticipation; there is only the eternal present moment. The mind becomes a pristine, calm lake, mirroring the world without disturbance.

The Silence Within

When one reaches the state of stillness, they enter a dimension where the self no longer dictates their experience. The boundaries of individual identity dissolve, and a profound sense of oneness with the universe emerges. This is the "Silence," a place where the ego no longer holds sway. In this Silence, the distinction between self and other, subject and object, dissolves. The universe becomes a seamless whole, and you, the observer, are no longer separate from the observed.


In the stillness of the mind, time loses its grip on our perception. Past and future cease to exist as distinct entities, and all that remains is the eternal now. Every moment, every experience, every lifetime condenses into this singular moment of presence. It is as though you have stepped out of the river of time and are now standing on its banks, observing its flow without being swept away by it.

The Essence of Life

All life, in its multifaceted complexity, is distilled into the essence of existence. In the state of stillness, you live fully in the moment, and in doing so, you experience the purest form of life. Every sensation, every emotion, every thought, and every action becomes a vivid expression of life itself. There is an intrinsic harmony between the inner and outer worlds, and you become a vessel for the universe to experience itself.

The Transformation into Truth

In this state of profound stillness, all existence is transformed into Truth. Truth is not a concept or a doctrine; it is the intrinsic nature of reality. The veils of illusion are lifted, and you perceive the world as it truly is. The boundaries that separate self from other, right from wrong, good from evil, dissolve. Truth is not a matter of belief or ideology; it is the direct experience of the interconnectedness and interdependence of all things.


The journey into the stillness of the mind is a sacred and esoteric path, a profound exploration of the self and the universe. In this state of profound stillness, one finds the Silence, transcends time, experiences the essence of life, and uncovers the ultimate Truth. It is a state of being that lies beyond words and concepts, and one must embark on this inner odyssey to truly understand its transformative power. In stillness, we discover our deepest connection with the universe and become a conduit for the wisdom of existence itself.


Η Υπερβατική Κατάσταση Ακινησίας: Ένα ταξίδι στη σιωπή του νου


Στον λαβύρινθο της ανθρώπινης συνείδησης, υπάρχει ένα βασίλειο που ξεπερνά το συνηθισμένο, ένα καταφύγιο όπου ο κακοφωνικός θόρυβος του εξωτερικού κόσμου σβήνει στη σιωπή. Αυτό το βασίλειο είναι η κατάσταση της ακινησίας του μυαλού, μια εσωτερική εμπειρία που αψηφά τη συμβατική κατανόηση. Στα βάθη αυτής της βαθιάς ακινησίας, ανακαλύπτει κανείς έναν χώρο όπου ο εαυτός διαλύεται, ο χρόνος και η ύπαρξη συγκλίνουν και η ουσία της αλήθειας αποκαλύπτεται.

Η φύση της ακινησίας

Η σιωπή του μυαλού δεν είναι απουσία σκέψης. είναι η υπέρβαση της σκέψης. Είναι μια κατάσταση όπου η αδιάκοπη φλυαρία του εγώ, ο αδιάκοπος νοητικός θόρυβος και ο ανεμοστρόβιλος των επιθυμιών σταματούν. Μέσα σε αυτή την ακινησία, δεν ασχολείται κανείς με το παρελθόν ή το μέλλον. Δεν υπάρχει καμία ανησυχία, καμία λύπη, καμία προσμονή. υπάρχει μόνο η αιώνια παρούσα στιγμή. Το μυαλό γίνεται μια παρθένα, ήρεμη λίμνη, που καθρεφτίζει τον κόσμο χωρίς ενόχληση.

Η σιωπή μέσα

Όταν κάποιος φτάνει στην κατάσταση ακινησίας, εισέρχεται σε μια διάσταση όπου ο εαυτός δεν υπαγορεύει πλέον την εμπειρία του. Τα όρια της ατομικής ταυτότητας διαλύονται και αναδύεται μια βαθιά αίσθηση ενότητας με το σύμπαν. Αυτή είναι η «Σιωπή», ένα μέρος όπου το εγώ δεν κυριαρχεί πλέον. Σε αυτή τη Σιωπή, η διάκριση μεταξύ εαυτού και άλλου, υποκειμένου και αντικειμένου, διαλύεται. Το σύμπαν γίνεται ένα απρόσκοπτο σύνολο, και εσείς, ο παρατηρητής, δεν είστε πλέον ξεχωριστός από το παρατηρούμενο.


Στην ακινησία του μυαλού, ο χρόνος χάνει τον έλεγχο της αντίληψής μας. Το παρελθόν και το μέλλον παύουν να υπάρχουν ως διακριτές οντότητες, και το μόνο που μένει είναι το αιώνιο τώρα. Κάθε στιγμή, κάθε εμπειρία, κάθε ζωή συμπυκνώνεται σε αυτή τη μοναδική στιγμή παρουσίας. Είναι σαν να βγήκες από το ποτάμι του χρόνου και τώρα στέκεσαι στις όχθες του, παρατηρώντας τη ροή του χωρίς να σε παρασύρει.

Η Ουσία της Ζωής

Όλη η ζωή, στην πολύπλευρη πολυπλοκότητά της, αποστάζεται στην ουσία της ύπαρξης. Στην κατάσταση ακινησίας, ζείτε πλήρως τη στιγμή, και κάνοντας αυτό, βιώνετε την πιο αγνή μορφή ζωής. Κάθε αίσθηση, κάθε συναίσθημα, κάθε σκέψη και κάθε πράξη γίνεται μια ζωντανή έκφραση της ίδιας της ζωής. Υπάρχει μια εγγενής αρμονία μεταξύ του εσωτερικού και του εξωτερικού κόσμου και γίνεστε ένα δοχείο για να βιώσει το σύμπαν τον εαυτό του.

Η Μεταμόρφωση σε Αλήθεια

Σε αυτή την κατάσταση βαθιάς ακινησίας, όλη η ύπαρξη μεταμορφώνεται σε Αλήθεια. Η αλήθεια δεν είναι έννοια ή δόγμα. είναι η εγγενής φύση της πραγματικότητας. Τα πέπλα της ψευδαίσθησης σηκώνονται και αντιλαμβάνεστε τον κόσμο όπως πραγματικά είναι. Τα όρια που χωρίζουν τον εαυτό από τον άλλο, το σωστό από το λάθος, το καλό από το κακό, διαλύονται. Η αλήθεια δεν είναι θέμα πεποιθήσεων ή ιδεολογίας. είναι η άμεση εμπειρία της διασύνδεσης και της αλληλεξάρτησης όλων των πραγμάτων.


Το ταξίδι στην ηρεμία του νου είναι ένα ιερό και εσωτερικό μονοπάτι, μια βαθιά εξερεύνηση του εαυτού και του σύμπαντος. Σε αυτή την κατάσταση βαθιάς ακινησίας, βρίσκει κανείς τη Σιωπή, υπερβαίνει τον χρόνο, βιώνει την ουσία της ζωής και αποκαλύπτει την απόλυτη Αλήθεια. Είναι μια κατάσταση ύπαρξης που βρίσκεται πέρα από λέξεις και έννοιες, και πρέπει κανείς να ξεκινήσει αυτή την εσωτερική οδύσσεια για να κατανοήσει πραγματικά τη μεταμορφωτική της δύναμη. Στην ακινησία, ανακαλύπτουμε τη βαθύτερη σύνδεσή μας με το σύμπαν και γινόμαστε αγωγός για τη σοφία της ίδιας της ύπαρξης.



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.
