You must drop all that you think you know, for true wisdom will never come to visit you if you hold opinions and judgements about anything. False knowledge is akin to giving a child a loaded gun to play with. Unless you learn to think clearly, your mind will be led astray by every contrived thought that enters your mind.

The word ‘esoteric’ comes from the Greek word esōterikós which means ‘inner’. It dates back to the 1650′s and is also associated with ‘belonging to an inner circle’. According to Lucian, the division of teachings into exoteric (outer) and esoteric (inner) knowledge, originated with Aristotle. Hidden knowledge is sometimes called ancient knowledge.

Our life experiences, again will be similar, for that is how we can relate to and sympathise with other people’s life stories. Yet it is as individual to us as our finger prints. No one person will feel, sense or see things in exactly the same way as someone else. And so the experience of a spiritual awakening will be the same.
