Spiritual Practice, Principles and Ethos of The Way Back

With Love at the Centre

The Way Back is the spiritual practice which teaches and promotes the higher guidance from the ascended masters. The Way Back has unconditional love as its core guiding principle and like unconditional love those involved in The Way Back strive to be inclusive, non-judgmental, and giving. The founding enlightened teachers of the The Way Back were happy to work with and support anyone from any group or background who wished to live a more holistic spiritual life.

As well as guiding your spiritual practice towards the goal of attaining enlightenment The Way Back importantly encourages you to also develop your soul journey so that you can live a spiritually fulfilling and integrated life aligned with the highest principles of love.

Because of the focus on both the soul and the spirit The Way Back is a truly holistic experience-based practice and you are invited to learn and incorporate as little or as much as you want into your everyday life.

The Core Teachings and Guiding Principles of The Way Back

The Way Back was started by several experienced enlightened teachers under direct guidance from the ascended masters. The following understandings rest at the core of The Way Back teachings:

  • In order to help your soul develop and become more spiritually aligned with the highest aspects of love and God you are encouraged to embrace the following personal qualities:
    • Humility
    • Gratitude
    • Respect
    • Non-Judgment
    • Compassion
    • Unconditional Love
  • These are known collectively as “The Six Virtues“. Followers of The Way Back are encouraged to develop these qualities within themselves and to practice them in every day life. These virtues can be explored and expressed in relationship towards:
    • Yourself (inwards)
    • Others (outwards)
    • God and the ascended masters (upwards)

The Way Back Proposes the Following Truths

There is great value in understanding beliefs, but there is greater value in transcending beliefs by experiencing for yourself the truth that they allude to. All of these beliefs can and have been fully realised already by many who have followed The Way Back. They are recorded here, not so that they become beliefs, but rather to motivate you to discover their truth for yourself, from your own experience.

  • The Way Back recognises the existence of the human soul and human spirit as distinct aspects of a human being. Aura, meridian, chakras, mind, emotional body, etheric aura and other subtle vehicles make up the human experience.
  • The Way Back recognises that there are higher dimensions than the 3rd dimension within which mankind is aware.
  • The Way Back recognises that each soul is on a journey over many lifetimes to raise its vibration towards unconditional love. The soul survives death.
  • The Way Back recognises that a spirit may undertake the spiritual journey to enlightenment through meditation on spiritual light and sound energy under the guidance of a living master. The spirit survives death.
  • The Way Back recognises that at times there is a spiritual master on the planet who can reveal spiritual light and sound energy and ultimately enlightenment.
  • The Way Back recognises that a person who has attained a highly evolved soul can “ascend” and join those on higher dimensions known as “spiritual guides” and the “Ascended Masters“; such a person is said to be free from the karmic cycle of life and death and will reside on these higher dimensions.
  • The Way Back recognises that humanity is guided by a collective of higher spiritual beings, spiritual guides, and ascended masters known to some as the “Spiritual Hierarchy”, all of which serve God and have unconditional love as their guiding principle.
  • All dimensions are created by God and humanity can explore these higher dimensions via spiritual light and sound meditation, when a spiritual master is present on the planet.
  • The Way Back recognises that through appealing with humility and fostering inner stillness you can receive appropriate guidance from spiritual guides on spiritual matters.
  • The Way Back has at its core the belief that no man should worship another, only God. That The Way Back is not a religion or system of belief but should reveal consistent spiritual truth through direct experience via meditation.
  • The Way Back recognise that every human has the potential to seek higher guidance from God via sincere prayer.
  • That every single human matters and that all souls are loved by God, thus “we are one“.

The Ethos of The Way Back

  • This journey is about service to others, not service to self. It is a journey of love, not ego.
  • There are other groups of light and sound meditation but there is only one light and sound energy. Therefore teachers of The Way Back are happy to support anyone who previously started their journey in any group, who demonstrates a genuine desire to progress on their spiritual journey and to embrace the teachings of The Way Back.
  • Although guidelines and advice are given to help you progress spiritually, you are respected and empowered to be self-reliant.
  • The Way Back does not belong to an individual, it belongs to God.
  • The ascended masters who support humanity and The Way Back work together in harmony, without the fog of ego and are aligned with love. They share a single desire to help mankind and say “we are one” and are in service to God. This is the example they set and ask that those who wish to be spiritual follow.
