The Esoteric Versus Other Societies And Schools Of Inner Or Occult Knowledge

The destiny of man is the conscious return to his Creator. The path of this return was drawn from the beginning of human life on Earth.
To help man on his way back, the laws and rules of this return were inscribed in his subconscious (as the voice of conscience). Some heeded those inner impulses while others turned a deaf ear. The Masters of Knowledge realized that man had lost contact with his subconscious, thus decided to compile all the laws and principles of the return path in special manuscripts and to establish a private institution of learning… to teach, or more accurately, to remind man of the principles of life that govern the return path to his source.
The “Great White Brotherhood” was founded and was the first of its kind on Earth. It “graduated” great teachers and pioneers who went into the world and started other schools under different names and of different levels. Their principles and rules were the same as those of the “Mother Institution”. Their aim was to promote physical and metaphysical knowledge and enlighten the inner self of each aspirant in accordance with individual levels of consciousness.
At first the results were excellent, but with the absence of the founders, those schools and societies started to go off course. With time, the deviation became more serious… and most of the schools ended up as a distorted picture of the original – false and sometimes quite contradictory (like most occult schools of the present). Contact with the “Mother Institution” was consequently severed.
As the consciousness of man sank lower and lower, and as those allegedly connected with the “Great White Brotherhood” became increasingly governed by selfish interests, the Masters decided that it was time to put man back on the correct course.
A plan was designed, its purpose was to bring all the schools, orders and societies of inner knowledge back to the bosom of the “Great White Brotherhood”. It would also make of every aspirant a member of the Brotherhood through the Esoteric Path which was its original method.
It is not that the Esoteric seeks to enter or control these societies, rather to contain them and to reform their course as its ultimate aim is conducting every man to the Truth of Self-Knowledge and self-realization.

The Esoteric And Metaphysics

In the distant past there were no specialized fields of knowledge; physics, chemistry, psychology, medicine, atomic sciences, astronomy etc… etc… did not exist in their present independent forms. The curriculum of the ancient schools did not allow for studying medicine, for example, without architecture or astronomy aside from the science of health vibrations. They taught the “Science of man” (the Esoteric), a unified science which included the knowledge of all sciences!
With time the physical sciences gained momentum, and the metaphysical were pushed into the background. This retarded the development of consciousness, and man lost track of the perfect path. As a result, most of men’s brain cells sank into sleep or stopped functioning, that is, they became unconscious… and the passage ways to deeper consciousness were thus blocked.
Consequently, the capacity of the human being to grasp and comprehend the ancient Science of Man (as a whole) was greatly impoverished. To help him out, a new method was introduced. Man was to study one or two different sciences each time he reincarnated. In this way his consciousness would eventually unfold leading him step by step and preparing him to comprehend the (whole) “Science of Man”. Only then would all his brain cells unfold… and man would become whole, or one mass of active consciousness — as the Esoteric aspires mankind to be.

The Esoteric Versus Parapsychology

Parapsychology and the Esoteric are not related to each other as is sometimes held. They may have certain common grounds, but in many respects they are quite different.
Parapsychology is only an attempt on the part of some psychologists to go beyond the self of man, to shed light on the mysterious unknown powers within.
Parapsychology is a lop-sided science; it concerns itself with only a part of the humane dimension and does not even cover that part fully. It does not know yet how the psychic powers function in man. It merely acknowledges their manifestation.
The Esoteric Science is a comprehensive science; it starts from the humane dimension (after covering the physical) and proceeds toward the spiritual. Evolution in consciousness is the aim of the Esoteric man who is constantly seeking a more developed life.
The thoughtful human being will easily distinguish the differences between the Esoteric and parapsychology even before he experiences the “Esoteric Path”.

Benefits Of The Esoteric’s Practical Application

The Esoteric Science is not general information; it is not a theoretical philosophy that may be read or studied then discarded at will. It is a way of life that leads the aspirant towards full awareness and development, towards higher intelligence and the discovery of the mental dimensions… in addition to the unlocking of inner powers.
Practical application of knowledge will serve to develop the consciousness of the student. This means opening up to the new expanding consciousness and exercising the intellect to analyse, discriminate and draw conclusions. It will awaken and exercise man’s inner faculties and make him work in an organized and disciplined way which is time-saving. These and other benefits are to be discovered by the student who adopts the “Esoteric Path” in practical living.
