The most powerful spiritual learning is the fire of Love and is something that we can all practise. However, there are spiritual and esoteric methods and knowledge that can help us be all that we can be...
"Most of the knowledge human beings seek to acquire helps them to earn a living or to shine in the company of others. It is of no use to them in overcoming life’s hardships. Initiatic knowledge, on the other hand, may not help them find a job or impress their audience, but it supports them in their psychic life because it concerns their deeper nature and it enables them to work on their own matter so as to reach a stage where they have control of themselves, in whatever situation.
Initially you will not fully understand the benefit of this knowledge because it acts slowly and deeply, and it does not produce great results immediately. But one day you will come to realize that you are not getting what you need out of the ever-growing body of knowledge that presents itself to you on a daily basis through books, newspapers, radio and television, and you will then turn to initiatic knowledge." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
So many disciples wait for their Master to reveal what they must do to become clairvoyants, alchemists, cabbalists, mages, and so on. They don't realize that this kind of desire is of no real use to them and can even be harmful for them. Acquiring occult knowledge and powers is what should come last. And wanting to start with what comes last is a very bad trend among disciples of an initiatic teaching. They don't know anything about the psychic and spiritual worlds and have not purified themselves, but they are greedy to receive the biggest secrets of initiation. These great secrets will crush them, they will not be able to endure them; but they don't see that and they don't want to see that.
Simply being interested in occult science does not suffice. All true Masters will tell you that. But the day a Master sees that someone is ready, they themselves will bring down the veil and make everything the disciple wished to know accessible to them. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
