Views of Reality
the view that what you see (or hear, or touch, or taste, or smell) is
what you get (or all that is real), is seen to have many limitations,
including its tendency to insist on reducing everything to its own materialistic
terms; and its inability to adequately account for human consciousness
and hence, human death.
Esoteric spirituality deepens human potential by acknowledging the Greater Reality, and providing the means for experientially embracing It. We briefly touch on four different dimensions of the greater Reality — psycho-physical, Spiritual, Transcendental, and Divine — and we will elaborate upon these dimensions, their Realization, and the means for Realizing them, in Books 9 and 10.
Exoteric religion is understood to derive from an originally esoteric source (such as a great Spiritual Master or a shaman). The practitioner of a legitimate exoteric religion — one that is still in touch with its esoteric roots — engages disciplines aimed at bringing him or her to full human maturity, in preparation for taking up the esoteric practices of his or her tradition. When an exoteric religion loses touch with its esoteric roots (e.g., by being re-shaped for the sake of political and social survival), it can devolve into an illegitimate exoteric religion that may be socially and politically influential, but is spiritually bankrupt.
