Importantly the focus of the personality; is to view energy. In terms of how it impacts emotionally in particular. In common words this is called emotional sentimentality. Which means that the ego or personality; has an attached emotional level focus. Therefore the natural result of this approach is to chase; after what you like and find appealing. Conversely what you dislike or find unappealing; you then attack or run away from. Above all it is only the detached mental level focus. That will provide holistic solutions with serious spiritual development.
An initiate is anyone who achieves a change in consciousness or spiritual awakening. For instance this is from a low animalistic pattern; into a higher more responsible way of being. Therefore in effect it is to become more vibrationally educated in spiritual evolution. Here is a quote by Mr. Carl Jung “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” Which is totally correct. Belief system or model of the world does not change reality in any way. However the only thing that we can change is our perception of reality. Which is precisely achieved with insight meditation practice.
