The capacities by which we can reach an elevated state of spirituality lie dormant within each one of us. The path of spiritual development is traced out in indelible symbols in what is known in occult circles as The Akashic Records, and only those masters who can understand these symbols can give us precise direction and guidance as to how properly come into a relationship with these mysteries.
These masters are known as Initiates, and the school by which they impart their knowledge is called The Esoteric School. There is only one school, as there is only one Truth. This school has existed throughout mankind’s entire known and unknown history, and will continue to exist well into the foreseeable future.
Anyone can become a pupil of the Esoteric School by developing certain faculties of soul. The aspirant pupil must develop these faculties to a certain degree of excellence, seeing as there are two laws that bond all Initiates of The Esoteric School together:
1. Knowledge may not be imparted upon anyone not qualified to receive it
2. Knowledge due a seeker cannot be withheld
The more perfect the initiate, the more perfectly these two laws are kept.
One’s quality is measured by the extent to which certain faculties of soul are developed in one’s soul. Spiritual masters have a way of observing these faculties by themselves, without us needing to say anything.
We can be sure that when the time is right and if the student is willing, the master shall appear and initiation into the mysteries will reach us whatever the circumstances.
But until then, an aspirant pupil to The Esoteric School must dutifully work on his own self to continue developing these faculties of soul to a more perfect degree each day.
The aspirant must aim to nurture within him a sincere and unwavering pursuit for virtue and truth that in every way will prepare him to receive secret knowledge.
