This brochure gives an overview of the school’s teachings as well as an insight into the philosophical foundation on which the work is based. When I sent the text “The Inner Path” (page 6) to some people for feedback, amongst other responses I received an answer from a student that he felt stupid when reading it.
This is the condition we meet on the inner path time after time, because we increasingly “know that we do not know anything”. And that is just fine. Conscious Not-Knowing can by no means be equated with stupidity, as we have learned. Rather, this state is a prerequisite for the conception of true knowledge and our soul’s unfolding on the inner path.
Thus I would like to encourage the reader to receive these pages not-knowingly, even if that might mean not understanding a certain amount through the thinking mind. Not-Knowing resembles the open and curious state of mind of a child that truly wants to learn about itself and the world. As the text “The Youngest Part of the Soul” (page 20) describes, I attribute high value of Inner Work to the rediscovery of the forgotten, suppressed child – the youngest part of our soul.
Human beings who can look at the world through the innocent eyes of a child live in natural awe and respect towards the wonder of the divine creation and rejoice intheir existence.
