Much is stated in occult and esoteric philosophy about clarity/silence, however until initiation has been complete usually there is very little known
as to the real nature and law underpinning this requirement.
When Man is born into the world he is a perfect entity, untainted by his environment. At this stage he is devoid of an ego or any form of opinion of
himself. We watch children of this age learn with an amazing enthusiasm and at incredible speeds, we watch as they learn and form reality from what we
teach them, and finally we watch them as they bloom forth from the seeds we've sown.
Once the child has reached manhood he is seen as others to be a fully formed individual, however he has become a tapestry of beliefs and opinions he
has encountered along his way, this tapestry is his personal ego. Gone is his mastery of his mind, gone is the freedom to chop and change himself at
will, his Ego has become crystallized and at this point is very hard to dismount.
The Esoteric students work usually begins here with the realization of the ego, and continues as he learns the art of its destruction. The removal of
the ego has many names, depending on which path it is sought under, my two favorite being "Buddhist annihilation" and the "babe of the abyss". The
ego holds all of the powers which bind man to earth, the ego contains all of the reasons man finds to put down his tasks and slip into lethargy, the
removal of the ego will always lead to the revelation of the Divine as man himself without an ego (or his earthborn self) is Divine by nature.
I understand that I make light of the work required to attain to such a great feet, however my main concern for this entry is to give people an
understanding of the concepts they'll come up against, as free as possible from my opinions so as to leave them with something they can actually use
as they come up against it. This work can take months/years/lifetimes in some cases and is not to be taken lightly, the removal of one aspect of the
ego will lead to the rise of another part to compensate and it is very easy for an initiate to fall victim to the illusion of the work being
completed, when in fact the initiate must bare in mind at all times that the work is eternal, it never stops and never gives respite. There is only
When the ego is manifest there is duality within the initiate, when the ego is removed there is only unity, the very essence of Divinity embodied, the
collective being working towards a single goal unobstructed, the Initiate who has truly worked to free himself has restored the powers he had as a
child but has also gained conscious operation of them, he can never be fully bound to the earth again. This is what The Christ, Jesus meant when he
said, "Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."
All Masters realize that the ego is temporal, and the only way towards enlightenment is to strip ourselves of that which makes us mortal and to crown
ourselves in the glory of our births. We are of the Universe, but we are also the Universe, we are created but we are also creators, we are not
either/or, we are both. When the Ego has been cast away what remains is the pure essence, if this transpires during incarnation then the Initiate
becomes akin to The Christ, Jesus and inherits all of the powers therein, for most however it happens whilst they are discarnate as it is easier to
distill the pure essence when one can see through pure eyes.
Do not fear the loss of yourself, instead realize that you have already lost yourself, set yourself to regaining that which you have already given up
and work towards ruthlessly removing imperfection and the ego from your body, and in that day when you have turned the 3 into 2 and the 2 into 1 truly
the words of the Great Khabir himself will be understood.
"When you make the two into one, and when you make the inner like the outer and the outer like the inner, and the upper like the lower, and when you
make male and female into a single one, so that the male will not be male nor the female be female, when you make eyes in place of an eye, a hand in
place of a hand, a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter the kingdom."
