Folder Path of Initiation Course

initiation courseGenuine spiritual initiation is not bestowed in the physical world, but in the worlds of the soul, when the soul has earned a new level of Being. The development of the soul is a conscious work, acheived through psychological transformations, and is marked by exact steps that cannot be avoided or skipped.

Telesis [τέλεσις] is a Greek term that means “progress that is intelligently planned and directed.” It means “the attainment of a desired end, by the application of intelligent effort.” This is the work of the soul to become an Initiate, whose goal is to achieve the completion of religion, which comes from the Latin religare, which means to reunite the earthly with the heavenly: to become one with God.

"Initiation is something very intimate to the Soul. The “I” does not receive initiations. Therefore, those who say, “I have so many initiations,” “I have such-and-such degrees,” are liars and fakes, because the “I” does not receive initiations or degrees. There are nine Initiations of Minor Mysteries and five important Initiations of Major Mysteries. The Soul is the one who receives the initiations. This is a very intimate matter; something that one must not go about speaking of, nor something that must be told to anyone. Indeed, all the initiations and degrees that many schools of the physical world confer have no value whatsoever in the superior worlds, because the masters of the White Lodge only recognize the legitimate initiations of the Soul as genuine. These are completely internal." - Samael Aun Weor, The Perfect Matrimony
