That which is so aptly required for a thorough, and complete
understanding of any subject, is also which has received the
quaintest attention or development. Many of the sacred, and
esoteric teachings which exist in the world today, are glossed
over as unintelligible, or at worst, re-iterated with
commentaries sourced from a mind UN-initiated into the deeper
mysteries and Truths which exist within, just beyond our
intellectual, line of sight.
The blatant ignorance which exists in the current, global,
spiritual community is baffling. And its leaders are convinced
that what they are offering to mankind will be of benefit, when
in reality all it shall accomplish is leaving many millions of
people with a bad taste in their mouth, and a distrust of the
spiritual domain altogether. This can then lead one to 'pick' a
path that suites their current, intellectual and emotional
needs, stunting their Spiritual evolution down the road.
The missing element, or the “Key” as it has been called, which
every path of Truth contains is the development of the Intuitive
Faculty. This faculty is an outpouring of our Buddhic Potentia,
an expression of that realm of Spirit which is omniscient,
omnipotent, and omnipresent. All knowledge is contained within
this plane of being, and through its use can we discern the
deeper wisdom which lies at the heart of the worlds several
spiritual and religious paths.
One of the purposes behind the 'confusing' or 'complicated'
method in which occult, or esoteric, knowledge and wisdom are
shared, is because if the language is to plain and simple, then
the lesser meanings get absorbed, leaving the real juice of the
fruit untasted. This breeds true spiritual famine, generating a
population of arm-chair Spiritualists and internet guru's. I
know this is true, because in my western life, real spiritual
teaching [and teachers] are few, and far between. Though, this
is a topic for another time.
Have you ever noticed that after reading a book or watching a
movie, if you watch or read it again sometime later, you notice
something you did not notice before? This is a common phenomena,
happens all the time to almost everyone. It also seems to happen
most when we are excited. I'm not hating on excitement, just
bear with me. In the fervor of excitement [for example, the
excitement of Gnosis], we can loose some bearing on our
conscious focus, or in other words, our focus is narrowed, like
a tunnel vision, reducing the quantity and quality of what we
are trying to absorb or internalize. Its obvious how this can
take away from the “real fruit”, leaving us with spoils that
only sate the appetite of our intellect. And if we only had to
make the monkey mind happy, there would be a greater population
of semi self-realized humans walking the planet, teeter
tottering within. When truth is left only to the intellect, then
the truth is made into a system, a process, a carrot hanging
from a stick,perpetually kept at a distance.
Considering that most esoteric knowledge was transmitted through
analogy, symbolism, allegory, and poetry, its not difficult to
understand why, in Christianity alone, we have several
denominations or “off-shoots”, each claiming a different
interpretation or point of view in regards to a single teaching.
It really does not matter who the teacher was, it was always the
same teaching, differing in language and context based on time
period and geographical differences.
Only the true Initiate, one who was first instructed to evolve
and expand their intuitive faculty, have ever been able to
communicate, through any media, the Wisdom of the Ancients for
the benefit of mankind. In several instances, the purpose of it
being communicated to the masses was to keep it alive during a
particularly dark period of human history, [The Christ Jesus is
an example of this, considering that the greatest rape and
pillage of human value and dignity occurred after his death. It
required a well tuned and powerful intuitive faculty to know and
understand the cycles of human evolution, and respond
accordingly. Research Kali Yuga] veiled and protected within the
minds of the ignorant, so as to not spoil its potential and
power for our collective ascension, at a later date.
Without the aid of Intuition, Truths such as Unity,
Cosmic/Christ/Krishna Consciousness, reincarnation, planes of
existence, qualities of consciousness, the TOE, and so on,
remain nothing more then conceptual or intellectual benchmarks
of mediocrity, plainly reduced to materialism in some way.
Merely stating that “We are One” is hollow and powerless,
affording zero benefit outside of the speakers sense of self.
Come from the BE-NESS of Truth, only achievable through the
awakening of our latent, intuitive faculty.
Where does intuition come in?
Intuition is the “still small voice” that arises when we are
still and our mind is quite. Meditation is the technology used
to achieve this mental state, allowing for this voice or “inner
teacher”, the true Guru, to pronounce its presence. In this
field of awareness, we finally reside in the “Abode of the
Father”, open in heart, to receive the clear vision and perfect
When in study [and I'm assuming that what is being studied is of
some spiritual value], practice relieving the mind of its
labeling/categorizing/defining modes, and be open with what you
are reading from deep within your heart. The sense of identity
and personality will begin to fade, and it will take MUCH longer
to finish a single book, but you will be engaging with the
Buddhic Field where all knowledge, wisdom, and Truth calls home.
The Buddhic consciousness will also begin to arise
spontaneously, perhaps while deep in meditation or through
dreams, or suddenly in the midst of sleep, one experiences a
powerful knowing or Gnosis. These “flashes of light” are truly
flashes of a more refined consciousness, a more connected and
unified consciousness that “wells up from the Plenum”.
When meditating, allow awareness to remain, still, undirected
and unmotivated. Thoughts will come. Let them go. Do your best
to keep attention centered, and awareness still. Maintain this
for as long as you can, each time the duration will extend.
As you allow this field of still awareness to grow, and last,
the “still small voice” will begin to emerge, and the “Way”
