The silence that doesn’t hurt
Dear Brother, the reading you offered could be emotionally shared, but only
emotionally. Because from a realistic point of view the “wise men”
mentioned by the author, as far as I am aware, are moved by active optimism.
They seem quiet or invisible only because they are tolerant towards those who
are not initiates.
Therefore it is audacious to put the sense of “wisdom” near to
the adjectives and the strong words used by the author. Definitions
like idiots or charlatans endlessly repeated are not a sign of a refined culture
indeed, but of a Manichaean spite typical of a people’s agitators.
Besides, saying that the language is very poor, it is risky to think that
“wise men”, precisely because they are wise, might exchange hypothesis
which are as much suggestive as pessimistic.
For ages, according to them, the keystone of the Service for the Benefit of
the Humankind has not been the reprimand or, worse, the regret for what has
been divulged, but rather the “restoration of the Ancient Mysteries”,
that is their “exteriorization” in the suitable forms.
This means the preparation of media (divulgers –
initiates) suitable to the need.
They must be able to pass down what is gradually thought necessary to be divulged,
without marks, impressions or personal sympathies (emotional hints).
The essay is full of disapproval, but the “wise men” prefer the
silence that doesn’t hurt.
The initiate is not subdued by pessimism because he has replaced it with reasonable
expectation, supported by the spirit of self-sacrifice, the empathy
(to understand others’ needs) and altruism.
In this way he can act with careful benevolence in an Unknown Work
that is live and real despite being unknown.
It is worthy mentioning that in the Unknown (to the profanes) Work the corner
stone to measure the “wise man” is intellectual and spiritual
uniformity, that is the heart of the universal brotherly Chain and
the Initiatory Communion that expresses it.
Beware not to confuse initiatory uniformity with profane conformism!
The initiatory uniformity is not the rule that silences the individual thought
of the apprentice “who can’t distinguish”. It is not something
that stops free initiative in the work of service towards oneself or others.
Let’s start from the principle according to which everybody becomes
what is able to think (level of reason) or what
he wants (level of will) or he even ends up being similar
to what he wants the most (emotional or astral level). The
uniformity of thought intended in an initiatory way, then, is the process
of inner acknowledgement, tending towards the conscience apex
able to reach the top of the Idea, which is the archetypical meaning of every
idea, in which the ideal abilities of the individual are highlighted.
At the top of the Idea (archetypical meaning) there aren’t any interpretative
differentiations or perceptive separations, because who reaches the top of the
thought is able to perceive the essence directly observing it (see
knowledge through contact). It is impossible to have difformities and dissimilar
opinions as a result of a view that we might call “impersonal”.
Therefore, if from intellectual purity the same deductions can be drawn, these
must necessarily be harmonious and uniform, even though in the highest sense
of the word.
Those who know the fundaments of the Psycho synthesis will have already recognized
the principles of what has been said.
Finally, I’ll remind a popular motto: fools rush in where angels
fear to tread. This is an effective warning for those who want to deal
with subjects they don’t know about, or for those who want to act as angels
without their wit
We can still appreciate the willingness of the neophyte. It is commendable
even if in the initiatory science good will without competence often causes
more trouble than unmoving ignorance.
