The Spiritual Path to Awakening

The universal path to awakening is mentioned in many esoteric texts throughout the history. To get the full understanding of it, you should first read my previous article The Wheel of Samsara, and the purpose of human life.

Many secret schools existed in the past that were teaching this very path, some of them are the Hermetic Order, the Rosicrucian, the Freemasons etc. It can also be found in legends, myths and arts of the past – it is depicted in the story of Odyssey, Jason and the Argonauts, the quest of knights for the Holy Grail, in the opera the Magic Flute by Mozart, and many others.

When you know that the body is merely the foam on the crest of a wave, unreal as a mirage, you will break the flowery arrows of craving. Unseen, you will escape the king of death and travel onward.

The scent of sandalwood, lilies and jasmine cannot travel against the wind, but you will travel. The fragrance of good works travels in all directions.

How brightly the lotus grows in the rubbish by the wayside. Its sweet scent lightens the heart.

So you, the awakened, will shine in the darkness around you, spreading the sweet scent of your wisdom.

– Buddha (taken from the Dhammapada)
