When studying Buddhism you will find out, all about the holy eightfold path with the four noble truths. This knowledge is certainly very useful and practical in nature. As it is based on the third ray of active intelligence; which in simple language is called common sense.

“There is no path other than the path which you weave for yourselves. You create your own light, you create your own pattern, you create the stepping stones for your feet, and you create the mud holes in which you so often flounder.” This is an extract from the discourse “the meaning of words” by Lai Yung.
Who is interested in growing spiritually or spiritual development? Well in that case you will need to study diligently the esoteric knowledge; contained within the Peacock group spiritual brotherhood discourses, which begins with an understanding of basic terminology.

When walking along a path, it is wise to have some idea of where we are headed and why? In life we only have two directions to choose from, which is either a circle or straight up.

Meditation enlightened is a demonstration that energy follows thought. Meditating is a form of conscious energy breathing. Energy of the oversoul is cold, soft, relentless, stretching, resilient and flexible. By comparison the resistance of ego is hot, hard, brittle and inflexible. During the meditation the increased flow of energy will cause an expansion phase; which the crystallization of ego resists. When a person meditates soul energy is impacting upon and dissolving resistance, which leads to an expansion in awareness or consciousness.

Perhaps in some cases there may be thoughts of suicide; which is a natural consequence for the isolationist approach. Choosing this path is such a very unwise life choice. Furthermore the following presentation is a clear and complete explanation; for the only valid or wholesome way to escape illusion.
