“Even if one is the most sinful of all sinners, one shall yet cross over the ocean of sin by the raft of self-knowledge alone. As the blazing fire reduces wood to ashes, similarly the fire of self-knowledge reduces all bonds of karma to ashes...” —Krishna, Bhagavad-gita 4:36-37
This book begins by asking the questions, “Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? What are we living for? Why are we living?” The answers to these questions can be discovered if one knows where and how to look.
No matter who we are, we feel fulfillment, happiness, and purpose inside of ourselves. These qualities are not felt outside of ourselves, and cannot be found in external things or circumstances. Similarly, knowledge of ourselves and our purpose cannot be found in external things, but are found inside. By knowing what is in our hearts and minds, by seeing what we usually ignore, we learn not only what we are capable of, but also what prevents us from developing our full potential. That knowledge shows us the way to genuine change.
“All things, all circumstances that occur outside ourselves on the stage of this world, are exclusively the reflection of what we carry within. With good reason then, we can solemnly declare that the ‘exterior is the reflection of the interior.’ When someone changes internally—and if that change is radical—then circumstances, life, and the external also change.” —Samael Aun Weor
I find this book particularly special and I felt compelled to buy another copy recently. I have had it for years and still go back to it—particularly the Publican and the Pharisee chapter, which feels completely relevant and helpful to me given the current political and social climate.
I have also seen that in an indirect way, the people in my life benefit from the teachings in this book as well. They don’t benefit because I tell them about it or ask them to read it, but because the principles within the book just have that effect if they’re taken to heart and worked with. With all that said, I think it’s worthwhile to note that it’s not a book that is meant to be read like a newspaper or cover to cover in one sitting. I think if it’s approached in that way, the reader would truly miss out.
All in all, I feel grateful that this book has crossed my path and I don’t usually write reviews (trying to change that), but my hope is that this will help get the book into someone else’s hands that could use it. I feel grateful that it continues to be in my life.
Changing myself is the toughest and most rewarding thing I ever took on. This book is another Swiss army knife of tools for my psychology, understanding and practices that Glorian has published that helps me to grow. Nothing mystical about it, and it is an easy to read, IF, you are serious about changing yourself and admitting or seeing flaws that need to be eliminated. I am ordering more copies of Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology for my family and friends with the hope they see the value that I see in these teachings.
I am about halfway through the book and I am purposely reading it slow, as I want to read it thoroughly, but so far this book has been immensely psychologically enlightening. There is a great amount of knowledge within this book and with as much as I have read, I have already began to understand so much about the inner psychology in relation to the external world. I thank you so very much for making this book available.
I haven't received the book yet.
Hope all is well with delivering it?
Any info is appreciated.
Kind regards ,Daiva.
