THE WAY OF INITIATION
Article by: 
Gabriele Conrad

 

In worldly terms, it can be said that we have all, at one time or another, sought to initiate ourselves or be initiated, irrespective of whether we have actually ever used the word ‘initiation’ or not.

Graduating from high school, starting an apprenticeship, going to university, getting a degree, the boy becoming a man, the girl becoming a woman, passing one’s exams, getting a drivers licence, the first overseas trip – are all in one way or another initiations of some kind.  

Could it be said that an initiation is the striving for something higher, better and more noble?

Could it also be said that the desire to initiate and aim higher is inbuilt? - A higher degree or a diploma eventually follows the first degree or certificate; continual professional education provides more expertise, knowledge and skills and we all welcome if not celebrate our children’s milestones.

Is it possible that we know that we are more and that we are innately capable of more? - Otherwise, where does this striving and yearning for a more advanced, more knowledgeable and somewhat more elevated state of being come from?

Is it also possible that many of our more worldly milestones, achievements and ‘initiations’ don’t really make the cut, don’t consistently and ongoingly deliver what we are yearning for but may find hard to name or define?

Is there possibly a way of initiation that delivers continuity, even perpetuity and a state of being and way of living that require no cash reserves, special talents, no memberships or alliances? 

Before you even start reading, The Way of Initiation, by virtue of its subtitle, clarifies what ‘Initiation’ actually is = The Development of Energetic Awareness. “Is that all?” you may ask. And if it is - does this suggest that an initiation is actually an inward trajectory rather than the usual outward journey of ticking boxes, amassing kudos and garnering accolades (?) - as pleasing, satisfying and even exhilarating as all that might be in the short to medium term.   

Maybe, just maybe, those outward-bound journeys don’t ever really satisfy or appease for very long and need to be topped up with more achievements, another milestone, further seeking and striving.

But is there another way?

The true esoteric tells us that what we are truly looking for is already within us and not something we externally acquire, gain, purchase or even receive. It is neither something that we can bring on or into ourselves from an outside source nor something that is given to, bestowed upon or granted us. And money can’t buy it either, just in case you were wondering.

And thus, initiation as presented by the Ageless Wisdom and in The Way of Initiation is a process of returning to the source we are from and not ever a path or journey of going somewhere, being someone or ‘something’ and or a state or status that can be externally acquired. The Way of Initiation takes you step by step through the various stages of an ever greater and unfolding awareness of what human life is about, what initiation truly means and how that can practically and joyfully be lived and shared with others.

Time, Space and all of us Book 1: TIME
Serge Benhayon
Gabriele Conrad

A whole book on time – what then is time? The answer seems obvious in many ways, as we are very used to measuring and quantifying it, but is it possible that our perception and understanding of time is wrong and not serving us? 

Time certainly makes for a captivating topic. Time, like the body we live in, is our constant companion and we can never get away from it for too long. 

Universal Medicine  An Open Letter to Humanity Serge Benhayon
Serge Benhayon
Gabriele Conrad

We have all felt at times that life on earth, human life, our life is not consistently what it could be – that it is not as joyous and free and simple as we imagined it to be, when as children we could not wait to grow up and have a go at it ourselves.

THE WAY IT IS - A Treatise on Energetic Truth
Serge Benhayon
Gabriele Conrad

Why read a book entitled ‘The Way It Is’ you might ask, when how it is must already be known by sheer virtue of living life in this world with family, neighbours, colleagues, alongside millions and millions of strangers and embedded in systems and governance of one kind or another? Would it not be more expedient (and relaxing) to turn a blind eye to what is really going on? Or better still, would it be instead far more rewarding and personally more satisfying to immerse oneself into bettering and finding solutions for what is not working? Perhaps we should stop and consider how we have been so blindly comforted by the notion of solutions and that we can have them/come-up with them whenever a crisis appears. A closer look at life reveals that at best, solutions perform as ‘band aids’ rather than truly bring solution to the thwarting issue or ill at hand. Could there be more we don’t know or, do know but, either don’t want to know or have not had the support to know?

A TREATISE ON CONSCIOUSNESS
Serge Benhayon
Gabriele Conrad

Have you ever wondered why despite all your best intentions, despite the yearly habitual round of New Year’s resolutions and promises to yourself and sometimes to others for added support (or to get them temporarily off your back) – it is very, very hard to truly change and create the new you, become the version of yourself you know deep inside is the truer, more self loving and loving real you?

THE LIVING SUTRAS OF THE HIERARCHY
Serge Benhayon
Gabriele Conrad

Humankind has always searched for answers beyond the mundane but very real and tangible conundrums of day-to-day living. Is it therefore possible that the nature of these questions not only suggests but makes it very possible that inherently, there is more to us than meets the eye? Is it possible that we do innately, if ever so vaguely have a cellular memory of our true nature and destiny? If not, where then do these questions come from and why do we bother asking:  

ESOTERIC & EXOTERIC PHILOSOPHY
Serge Benhayon
Gabriele Conrad

The title of this collection of esoteric and exoteric philosophy presents at least one, if not two very misunderstood and misinterpreted words, namely ‘esoteric’ and ‘exoteric’. And whilst ‘exoteric’ is not so widely in use, the word ‘esoteric’ as it stands today is very far away from its original and very practical and down to earth meaning. Esoteric means the inner-most and it is that which is found in the inner-heart of every human being. The esoteric is that which is truest and closest to what we actually and truly are; it is our essence as human beings in a physical body and the place where true wisdom can be accessed.

Universal Medicine

Gabriele Conrad

This book is a healing handbook of 728 pages, a companion compendium for you, the reader to use on a regular, and if you so choose, on a daily basis. Each of its entries is complete in itself, be it a one-liner or a half-page text passage and you will find much here that might seemingly come out of left field at first but which, upon further pondering, will debase many of our repetitive choices and the cumulative big and small irresponsibilities of daily life – what is generally referred to as normal and acceptable, albeit only just.
