Principle 13:  Initiation

Does anyone know what an initiation is from a higher viewpoint?

We’ll pause here and throw this question out along with the following:

How does the development of the power to initiate prepare one for initiations?

I have taught quite a bit in the past about becoming an initiate through using the power to decide and initiate which is within us. In my writings this is presented as a self initiating power which is within us and must be used in order for us to attain to higher spiritual power. Neither presentation is at conflict and both together help to understand the principle of initiation itself, for in order to attain to the initiations one must first develop the power to initiate within.

An initiate is one who initiates. Therefore, you are an initiate to some degree when you start a business, a rock and roll band, or initiate an invention.

Christ is not looking for people who have to be told what to do in every detail, but for those who are willing to initiate good causes of their own free will and bring them to fruition.

Question: What is initiation?

Answer: Isn’t it phases of growth, or the beginning of the phase toward enlightenment?

An initiate is one who initiates. To dream and create in the imagination is only the first step. To build a prototype is a second step. But to get the concept into the hands of the public and convince them to buy and use it is by far the most difficult.

An initiation is an area in your life over which you’ll be a master. In the first initiation you prove that you’re a master over physical things. The second initiation shows you are a master over your emotions, the ego and glamour. In the third one you become a master over the world of the mind and illusion. The fact that you’re reading this shows that you’re either a probationary disciple or a disciple. A probationary disciple is one who is seeking after the Path. A disciple is one who has taken several of the initiations and committed himself to the work of the soul. The fact that you’re even seeking indicates that you are at least aspiring to something higher. Either you’re just looking or you’re committed to the purpose of your inner soul. You probably feel inside which category you’re in.

A matter of prime importance to each student is not the fact of a particular teacher’s personality but the measure of truth for which he stands. It is in the student’s power to discriminate between truth and falsity. So, I’m probably a good person to teach this class, because some of you have said, I have no personality. Let’s look at somebody like Jimmy Swaggart. He had all kinds of personality. He got up there and he cried and he just oozed personality. And why did people follow him? Because of his “personal power.” If you were to read his words on a sheet of paper without the personality behind it, what do you have? Who would pay any money just to read that? But you see him get out and storm around and cry and do all these things, then you’re swayed by his personality.

Many of the gurus and new age people we see around sway people by their personalities. People are hypnotized by emotional essence. The New Age Disciple must get beyond the personality and what we need to look at is the pure words and how they affect your spirit.
