Initiatic knowledge is etched into us for all eternity

October 18th 2021
There are two sorts of knowledge. The first is the officially sanctioned knowledge that you receive in schools and universities, which provides you with the material things you need: a job, money, prestige and so on. However, this knowledge does not transform you, and you remain exactly the same with your anxieties and weaknesses. The second kind of knowledge, initiatic knowledge, may neither help you to find a position nor give you prestige, but it will transform you. Of course, as human beings are mainly interested in material rewards, they seek the official kind of knowledge. Unfortunately this knowledge does not last. You cannot take book learning with you into the next world; it is yours for only this one incarnation. And what is one incarnation? A dream, a dream that lasts only a short while. But the initiatic knowledge that transforms us and teaches us the meaning of life is etched into our being for all eternity.
