We have some exciting news to share. Yesterday we published a book by Lara Atwood titled The Ancient Religion of the Sun: The Wisdom Bringers and the Lost Civilization of the Sun, and it’s now available to order online. Here is a bit about the book: This book is for anyone wishing to learn about the history of the ancient Religion of the Sun. It traces its origins by exploring some of the most ancient sacred texts and indigenous histories on Earth. It examines its reestablishment following the global flood at the end of the last ice age, as well as its founders, many of whom are remembered as the greatest spiritual figures and teachers in history. It also explores the lost civilization they helped initiate, from which the major civilizations of the ancient world arose, and our own civilization grew. This book is full of research and evidence of the Religion of the Sun in history, as well as photographs, illustrations, and excerpts from ancient texts along with quotes from modern researchers. So much work has gone into the making of this book. Lara has been completely dedicated to researching and writing it for the past few months. And [...]
We wanted to give an update on a couple of things happening here at Mystical Life Publications. New Book First, we’re excited to announce an upcoming book (yet to be titled), which will bring almost all of Belsebuub’s talks and articles into one publication. It will include the content from his books Gazing into the Eternal and The Awakening of Perception, as well as many other articles and transcribed talks which have never before been published in book form. This new book is currently going through the proofing process but will hopefully be available in a couple of months or so. It’s set to be the book with the most content we’ve ever published – a fair amount longer than The Path of the Spiritual Sun by Belsebuub with Lara Atwood which is over 400 pages. Stay tuned for future updates on this! Copyright Infringement Followup In other news, we’ve been continuing with copyright infringement followup. 167 cases have been resolved since the last blog post on May 4th. Although attribution is good, in most cases people have posted content without permission, while sometimes advertising their own paid spiritual events or other products, some of which go into hundreds of [...]
As usual, we’ve continued to be busy behind the scenes here at Mystical Life Publications, but we wanted to give you all a quick update on what we have been doing. We’ve made a renewed effort to deal with outstanding cases of copyright infringement of our published works, particularly from The Path of the Spiritual Sun by Belsebuub and Lara Atwood. For a few years now there was a big effort in finding instances of plagiarism across the net, which many people contributed to. We wanted to sincerely thank all those who were involved and helped bring cases to our attention. While we’ve been doing our best to deal with this among our other publishing work, we realized that we needed to reassess and create a better and more effective system to deal with and resolve these cases. So we’ve now come up with a plan which we have already started to implement with good results. We wanted to share some of the outcomes with you. Overall we have about 530 cases to follow up, and have resolved about 370 cases so far (so about 900 total). Cases range from copying short passages without attribution, to whole articles, and higher [...]

Searching Within can be purchased from: Amazon.com Amazon.co.uk BookDepository.com (should be available on Book Depository in a few days) And many other worldwide online retailers https://www.mysticallifepublications.org/worldwide-retailers-searching-within-by-belsebuub Since Searching Within has just been released, it can take time before the book listing shows up on some online retailers' websites. Currently the book seems to only be available on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and some of the other global Amazon sites. About the book: A true spiritual journey begins within. The search for who we are, and the deeper purpose of existence, is ultimately an inner quest. Searching Within provides the tools and information to set out on this inward journey. It explains why acquiring self-knowledge is so important for any kind of profound inner change, and how it can bring many benefits to one's life and the world. Belsebuub explains how using the timeless principles of self-discovery, one can observe and understand their subconscious, with its many drives and desires, and uncover the causes of suffering within themselves—and at [...]
Hello! We just wanted to give a quick blog update on upcoming book releases. Over the past couple of months, we’ve been busy behind the scenes working on the release of Belsbuub’s self-knowledge book in paperback! It’s in the final stages of production and it should be out sometime next week. We’ll be sure to let everyone know when the book has been released, so stay tuned to the MLP blog and/or the Belsebuub.com blog. Some months ago, we had started pre-production for the paperback release of Belsebuub’s Return to Source book. Since starting the pre-production process, Belsebuub has decided to expand the book, and to incorporate it into the much larger work he is working on about the process of inner transformation. We expect this book to be released early next year. We also wanted to give another big thanks to the people that support and keep Mystical Life Publications going. Without the support, we would not be able to do what we do, so thank you so much again. On behalf of the entire MLP team, we wish everyone an inspiring and spiritually uplifting Equinox.
We’ve been very busy working on upcoming projects, but wanted to take some time out to wish everyone a very inspiring and meaningful equinox. Seven Moai statues at the Ahu Akivi site on Easter Island which face the sunset on the spring and autumn equinox. We hope people are inspired to connect to this special spiritual time of year, just as people in ancient times did. Here are some excerpts from The Path of the Spiritual Sun which explain about the spiritual significance of this time of year. The Spiritual Meaning of the Autumn Equinox The annual descent of the sun south into darkness is symbolic of the consciousness descending into the darkness of matter, of it coming into a body, into the darkness of the subconscious of the psyche, to join the process of life (referred to as the Wheel of Life in Buddhism). This darkness is necessary for spiritual awakening, as without darkness we would not know light, and it is from darkness (the subconscious) that light (consciousness) is extracted, giving us the knowledge gained from experience. ~ Belsebuub with Lara Atwood from The Path of the Spiritual Sun, chapter three The Spiritual Meaning of the [...]
The day is finally here, Gazing into the Eternal by Belsebuub is out in paperback again! The book was originally released in 2009 and was a finalist in the Best Book Awards 2009 in Spirituality, was featured on the cover of Publishers Weekly, and received a 5 star review in Foreword Magazine. From the back cover: “Gazing into the Eternal is a collection of a number of Belsebuub's key talks that provide an introduction to spiritual knowledge. It takes a clear and easy-to-understand look at some of the most profound questions we face, such as what happens when we die, is it possible to have the divine within, what are the causes of suffering, and how can spiritual realities be personally explored.” This book has been a little journey in production with developing new font layouts for our print books going into the future. It’s been nice revisiting this book and spending so much time with it. Each chapter is full of amazing spiritual insights and perspectives on many aspects of life. We hope you enjoy it! You can learn more about the book here and where you can purchase it from here https://www.mysticallifepublications.org/worldwide-retailers-gazing-eternal-belsebuub. Thanks again to everyone that continues [...]
We just wanted to give a quick update on the paperback release of Gazing into the Eternal by Belsebuub. We got our proof of the book with the new font layout, and while we were happy with the new look, it needed a bit of tweaking to get things just right. Over the past few weeks, we've been busy working away on it - so busy that we haven't managed to post any updates :) We are expecting the final proof any day now, and if all is looking good, the book could be available some time late this week. We thank everyone for their continued support for what we do! We really appreciate it!
We’ve been quiet again here on the blog, but that’s because we’ve been keeping busy as usual with work behind the scenes for MLP. One of the more exciting tasks has been Dara and I spending a lot of hours working on typography for the upcoming paperback releases by Belsebuub. There’s a real art to choosing the right font, which we’ve both been exploring for the past couple of weeks. Each typeface has it’s own feeling and personality, and are appropriate in different circumstances. And it takes a lot of time to go through and test hundreds of fonts to find the one that’s just right! Even with the right font, then there’s font size, line spacing, margins, and other considerations when formatting books. The hard work pays off though, as when you get it right, reading becomes more enjoyable, and you don’t even notice the font (they say the best design is one you don’t even see!). We’re really keen to put the new font into action as we work to bring out the next publication, the USA Book News Best Books awards finalist Gazing into the Eternal by Belsebuub. If everything goes to plan, it should be another [...]
It’s been just over two years since we established the MLP office in July 2014. It’s been great to have a dedicated space for the MLP team to come to and work together. It’s facilitated projects like the updated websites, the books coming out in print, Total View episodes, working at combating plagiarism of our authors’ works, and the day-to-day administrative work we have for the organization. Things are evolving for MLP and we have big plans and big ideas for the future. We’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on where things are at for Mystical Life Publications, where we are and where we want to be. We have so many projects in the pipeline to get the works of our authors and the message of the spiritual sun out to the world, but a small team of people who can only dedicate a limited amount of time to MLP. What we see that could give MLP and its projects a big boost is having the core MLP team being able to spend more time working for Mystical Life Publications instead of other jobs. Most successful publishing houses have a dedicated team of full time workers. Imagine what Mystical [...]
