Esoteric and Occult
Theres much more i could say about this …. but abillity of ´limitation´ in expression can be as important valuable as ´expansion´ in a time or moment
Just as ´Occult Silence ´ is of value.
To know when to speak, what to speak and when to be silent.
As much a value to know the power of sound as well as the power that lies hid in silence, and in rythm.
does Not mean ´for a selected few´. Esoteric mean internal, inner or beyond the visible physical, whereas exoteric mean external, outer physical. It has always been Free for anyone to seek that which is esoteric, if the seeking is with pure heart and pure higher motive the results will be accordingly, if the esoteric is seeked with intentions of service to self, the seeking can be forfilled as well, consequential either way.
Seeking the esoteric does not equal being part of a ´secret society´, the esoteric is present beyond physical appearence, also there are Inner Schools for the honest seeker.
As well as there may be corruption in some ´esoteric societies´ it does not mean all, as well as corruption is in some physical societies or instituitions does not mean in all. As well as some people or beings are or have been corrupted in higher levels it does not mean that all people are.
The practise of * Discernemnet is more evolutionary than biased thinking and prejudice.
For various reasons some knowledge do come in ” graduated sequences “, or in successive, progressive revelation …
And certain knowledge may be saved /hidden because a certain level of purity intent, character building and ethics and training is required for saftey before revealment.
That some groups may have ´hidden knowledge´ for selfish reasons/ for service to self is another subject and a dark path / not evolutionary.
And any ´ secret societies ´ ( internally within themselves or externally ) or individuals who step down on others to ´get up ´ are not following a ´light path´ (or evolutionary path ) ; no-one gets up by stepping down on others, even if some (delusional) think they do (and it could appear so tempoarily short), Natural Laws or The Law doesn´t work that way.
I am for truth to all beings, I am also for preserving some esoteric and pure ( ´white ´ ) occult knowlegde in its original state uncorrupted, the latter seen in the perspective and context how some ´esoteric truths´ are (still ) getting degraded, twisted, corrupted, ripped out of original contexts and now also ´new aged´ through media , ´dark masonrism´ but also ´spiritual ´ internet sides etc .
I am not for ´dumb-ing ´anything down, which i do not mean in any arrogant way, but out of love for the purity of truth and knowledge, and i see a differerence or distinction in knowledge being shared gradually or simplified and it being ´dumbed down ´ .
Also symbolic expressions and Symbols have potentially a quality of preserving knowledge in a more pure state without ´it being dumb-ed down ´ plus everyone can unerstand /get it / translate at their individual level, understanding symbols is great way of training the intuition also and connecting the subconscious with the conscious and even superconscious
Old age religious stigmatation and demonization mixed with ´ new age´ propaganda and disinformation/misinformation, and agendadized conspiracy info spins has contributed to unjust persecutions of the esoteric itself without any discrimination, even to the point it has similarity to the psychological mechanisms of ´blame -shifting´, which is a condition that generally should be seeked acknowledged and healed (along with other shadowprojections & accountabillity ) within the ´human nature´ , a nature that is both esoteric and extoteric. conscious and subconcious.
And Ancient symbols of nature, the universe and micro macro cosmos , which in todays world is subjected to much old religious standard demonization, misintepretations of conspiracy theorists, propaganda and online disinformation, distortion and bias. And mainstream pop inflation and perversion of the symbolism and use connected to money, greed, control , service to self and power of which the Symbols in their pure undistorted forms has Nothing to do with, as little as powerhungry people, celebreties money, fame, control or greed hungry people has anything to do with pure ´illuminism´ /illumination, which is an internal, integral and bodily purifying/purified experience/process, and so also the word ILLUMINATI has been wrongly selftaken by some and wrongly given to and misued to label immoral, corrupt powerhungry unscrupulous people.
The Symbols that Masonrism has used is a reflection of older times ancient symbols par example Egyptian or Atlantean are today like Free Masonry in general , ´secret societies´ etc often the target of new and old aged standard demonization, from the conspiracy and ´truther movement ´ and people who cant discern and discriminate adds to all the online propaganda.
There is a dark path of masonry going on, as well there still exist a true white / light path ( like there are dark magicians as well as white magicians, dark occultists and white occultits etc ), but many today judge it all without right discrimination, many people on the internet can not or ´will not ´ discern that and prejudiced and unjust blame all masonry or ´secret societies´ without any discrimination for ´all ´bad in the world..
The ´will not ´ is a way of saying it can relate to many people seek someone outside to blame for whatever or are mind-controlled by internet propaganda and disinformation ..
The True old Light Path of Masonry par example is a Path of unselfishness, service and purification. here below described in a beautiful excerpt by Manly P Hall from the Lost Keys of Free Masonry https://www.in-luxia.com/2018/06/19/the-light-path-of-masonry-as-of-old-by-manly-p-hall/
– ” One point should here be stated: Esotericism is not in any way of a mystical and vague nature. It is a science – essentially the science of the soul of all things – and has its own terminology, experiments, deductions and laws. When I say “soul,” I refer to the animating consciousness found throughout nature and on those levels which lie outside the territory usually called nature. Students are apt to forget that every level of awareness, from the highest to the lowest, is an aspect of the cosmic physical plane, and is therefore (from the angle of evolutionary process) material in nature, and (from the angle or point of view of certain divine Observers) definitely tangible and formed of creative substance. The esotericist is dealing with substance all the time; he is concerned with that living, vibrant substance of which the worlds are made and which – inherited as it is from a previous solar system – is colored by past events, and is (as has been said) “already tinged with karma.” It should also be noted that just as the physical plane, so familiar to us, is not regarded as a principle by the esoteric student, so the cosmic physical plane (from the standpoint of the cosmic lives) is likewise “not a principle.” I give you here much food for thought. “
” All true esoteric activity produces light and illumination “
– DK ( The Tibetan )
As well the essential meaning of ´Occult ´ has been unjust stigmatised and persecuted without discrimination and discerment.
´Occult´ refer to that which is hidden. And Occultism refer to and deals with the invicible Forces that bring about that which is visible physical ;
Par example ; what makes a plant grow, which ´hidden forces´ contribute to its aliveness, form and expansion in the physical form, which life force(s) brings it to life. What sustains the etheric form and etheric life force that sustains the physical plant.
Which invisible force (s) or greater light (s) brings light through our physical sun, where /what is the great light that sustain and shines through all the lesser lights, and ´lesser suns ´ .
What im saying with these 2 examples is that it concerns that which can be cosidered occult knowledge / knowledge of invisible forces bringing about that which is seen, and can be studied in Nature it self ….. …is what lies beyond normal understood nature from spiritual to phsyical bodies in these cosmical physical planes.
And yes in addition an individual can chose to train and practice ´occult ways´ weather that be the white occultist or dark occultist, with consequential laws either way.
I do not use the word occultist in the same meaning as if i said magician, sourcerer or witch.
A ´ White Path ´ usually invovles responsibillity that also includes higher service, and hereby also sharing of what may be beneficial, relevant and helpful to others ( not all ´higher service´ is externalised directly in that way though and may remain unseen.. )
Occultist & Mystic
In qualitative effects evolutionary the ´ occultist ´ and the ´ mystic ´ could benefit from eachothers ways, meant in an internal bridgeing /blending way .
Generally speaking ´ Mystics´ are more ´ feeling based ´ in seeking higher union, where ´the Occultist´ is more ; self disciplined , spiritual and nature scientific, and mental in approach but not without intuition.
Yet both the ´mystic and the ´occultis´ could some where along the line benefit from eachothers ways in a fruitful way :
Eg The mystic could benefit from the dicernment abillities , practicality and self discipline of the occultist .
And the Occultist could benefit from the direct internal upward vertical way /line the mystic often seeks to open inside. Some occultists could be more balanced with more ´heart energy ´ and some mystics could be more balanced with more of the ´higher intelligence aspects ´ the occultist often work with .
All ´ true esoteric or occult ´ progress, happens slowly. If progress appear to happen ´faster´ , it can be contributed to ´blend in´ of other life experiences /or previous aqquirements released from the ´talent cores of the soul ´ . There are no shortcuts to ´true progress´, what is build (up ) slowly and steady is ´everlasting ´ .
“Let the seeker after truth escape from drowning and climb the river’s bank. Let him turn towards the Northern Star and on firm ground stand, his face directed towards the light. Then let the star lead.” – An Ancient Symbolic phrasing
Block or blocks for (deeper) Truth : Condemnation without any personal knowing, or personal experience or investigation or exploration or discernment, condemnation without (right ) understanding or without patience to develop understanding, condemnation based on dogma, or what the propaganda internet sites and propaganda youtube videos wants you to believe …
Truth owns itself .
No ´system´ esoteric or exoteric, or individual owns Truth
Truth owns it self objectively seen, it is living,
though the one who experience can have ´subjective truths´.
( as there can be ´group truths´ and universal truths ).
In a world and its less denser layers mind controlled and manipulated, it is self-Aligning not accepting ´truths´ / things as true that Is not embodied or self-realised, or not in ressonance with ones highest intuitions, and speak against ´ logic in greater perspective ´ if tested with that.
◊ ◊ ◊ ´ Logic in greater perspective ´ can be/ involve the micro-macro cosmic, holistic, planetary, mineral, plant, animal, human, solar of ´things´ inter relatedness, sequences and natural ´cause and effects´ upon eachother.
There are some laws or fact(ors) that apply both to an atom, a man, a planetary logos and a solar logos.
The abillity of Reasoning works well with Intuition in self work and in discernment.
Intuition and logic works well together in discernment.
And effective Discernment and Discrimination to See through glamor and illusion and real from unreal and true from false, comes through the Clear Light of the Soul or Spirit through the Brain.
Also There is a direct discernment abillity that is pure feeling and direct physical discernment abillity.
Taste in a metaphysical way is also a discernment abillity.
Metaphysical taste can ´desnsify ´ to be felt very physical on the tounge and in mouth.
Or vice versa physical taste discernment can be ´tuned up´ on a methaphysical level.
And sound discernment ; the hearing of the sounds and tones or scattering sounds behind e.g ´ masqueraded veils of love and light ´.
Will & Love for Truth ◊ ◊ ◊
If one truly desires to know truth, to will the truth and knowlegde, have that flame of desire burning or ignited, truth (s) will appear through dedication, discernment abillities, intuitive faculties, experiental integration and embodiment .. Through dedication and self-responsibility the flame will sustain ; with no inner dedication, with no true honest pure ´higher motive´ and consistency, and ruling other desires to be more occupied with and ´gratified´ with 1000 other things, that inner flame that lights the path looses sustainabillity …

•The keys to all liberation and illumination lies within the self .
Symbols are but symbols .

” Kabbalah and Theosophy, in reality, represent two interpretations or representations of the same inner, mystical teachings of the universal, ancient wisdom religion ” Peter von Sass
I feel that is true as opposed to ´traditional placing kabbalah into judaism -biblical times origins´; like the inner mysteries of all religions are connected and expressions of the same inner core or ancient or ageless wisdom teaching dressed in somewhat diffrentiated outer bodies.
Meaning also that what we now call by the name ´kabbalah´ ( in lack of a more original name ) in pictoral, symbolic, systemic constellation also in ´ essentials ´ have been expressed in ancient egypt or even atlantis for understanding, teaching, and initiation system .
