Are You An Esoteric?

Are you an esoteric?

Many of you will tend to answer no. You might say: “Esoterics is a bunch of crap, a far-fetched set of ideas embedded in a seemingly ridiculous folklore of superficial beliefs and practices. Talking to trees, seeing energy, talking to angels and the like.”. You might add: “I have nothing to do with it, and I don’t want to have anything to do with it.”. Its like the guy in this video.

So esoterics… you have nothing to do with it? Well, as a matter of fact you likely do. Sorry ;-).

Are you a religious person? Yes? Esoteric! Among others, you believe that man has been created in the image of god. Microcosm = Macrocosm. As above so below. The study of oneself is the study of the universe and thus oneness, or god. That is actually one of the hermetic principles. Correspondance. The electron encircles the proton as the earth orbits the sun as the solar system orbits the center of the milky way. The same principle on various planes of existence. An article on all seven hermetic principles is in the pipeline.

Do you practice Yoga? Yes? Esoteric! Yoga is an Indian esoteric school, thousands of years old. It is a set of philosophies and practices aimed at expanding consciousness and growing the energy body. “Physical yoga” is but an extension of this underlying philosophy, as it seeks to stimulate our chakra system and energy channels. Physical practice, or better mediation through motion, aims at stimulating the “unseen body”.

You do Tai-Chi or Qi-Gong? Dude, are you esoteric? You bet! Esoteric! Both schools deal with the notion of life energy “Chi”. Both practices teach you how to access, modulate and move life energy around.

Do you feed your kids (or yourself) homeopathic globuli instead of good-old industry grade drugs? I am sorry to say… but… esoteric!

Do you wear stones, crystals or metal on your body? What sort of symbols are among them? Esoteric!

Is your apartment Feng-Shui-compatible? Is the energy flow about right? Esoteric!

Do you believe in guardian angels, archangels and the like? 66 % of all Germans do. Obviously – esoteric!

You like Paulo Coelho? Well… pretty esoteric guy… “The Alchimist”… pure esoterics.

You check your horoscope from time to time…
You believe your loved-ones that passed away can look down on you from “heaven”…
You practice meditation…
You pray…
You believe you have a purpose in life…
You know there is a soul…
You know there is a divine spark in you…
You believe in a miraculous…
You sense that something is out there, even if you don’t know what…
You, deep inside, believe there must be more to life than this…

I guess my point is, very likely, at one point in your life or the other, you have come in touch with practices rooted in deep esoteric principles or core esoteric beliefs. Mostly, I would assume, without knowing. On at least one night of your life, you must have looked up to the stars in awe. Sometimes, you must have wondered… why do I feel… why do I dream… what happens when I die… So maybe, if one or more of the things I lined up worked for you, some great yoga, mediation, you name it, then maybe other things will work for you too. Maybe, you might want to learn what’s behind it. Chakras, Kabbalah, Hermeticism, Astrology. Maybe, you can open your mind to a different kind of science that is thousands of years older than anything “modern man” came up with. Maybe, you acknowledge that “the wisdom of the ancients” has some relevance today.

Yes, my friend, you are an esoteric. From the moment your light entered this universe until the end of time.

In the words of the great Tony Soprano: “And if all this shit’s for nothin’, why do i gotta think about it? That’s the mystery, isn’t it? The mystery of god, or whatever you want to call it, of why we’re given the questionable gift of knowing we’re gonna die.”

Namaste (“I see the divine within you”) brothers and sisters!

Free your mind and let it flow...
