Guided by the Tradition and Inner Revelations the Gnostic seeks the Esoteric Path. This is the same Initiatic Path. It is Buddha's Middle Path; the Tao or Way; The Kabalist's Climb up the Tree of Life.....
According to Gnostic Tradition the Initiations along the path are not physical, but are bestowed upon the Inner Being internally.
Speaking of the Esoteric Path Jesus Christ said: Strait is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life and few there be that find it
The 4 noble truths of the Buddha point out the path:
1. The Truth that Suffering Exists.
2. The Truth that Desire is the cause of Suffering.
3. The Truth that Suffering is Eliminated by Eliminating Desire.
4. The Truth that there is a Path to the Elimination of Desire.
The Path Unites the Aspirant with his/her Esoteric Reality. Strictly adhered to at all costs it takes the Gnostic back to the complete Self Realisation of all the parts of his/her Being, and to the Absolute Unity from whence he/she originally came.
The Esoteric Path has 3 Fundamental Factors:
1 Mystical Death: To know and annihilate defects from within the psyche such as: Greed, Fear, Jealousy, Hatred, Selfishness, Egotism, Self Pity etc...
2 Birth: To Transmute our energies so as to crystalise virtues and develop transcendental faculties. To awaken Kundalini. This is to prepare the way for the soul.
3 Sacrifice: To give freely of ourselves, with love in aid of our fellow Beings.
