Esoteric vs Exoteric
Some will understand this, and some won’t but this isn’t for everyone because the masses are known to take things at face value, while the critical thinkers are the mystics who can see the meaning and symbolism in things that the masses can’t see.
It’s just like how some things that are esoteric isn’t for everyone because everyone won’t understand it.
The masses hold an exoteric belief.
If you told someone with an exoteric belief system to explain a Bible verse I am sure you would get a basic answer.
If you told someone with an esoteric belief system to explain a Bible verse, I am sure you would get more than a basic answer, for an example let’s look at the verse below.
“For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.”
If you were a person with an exoteric belief system then you would see this verse as a literal one, and you would think about your physical life.
A person who thinks with an exoteric mind, will look at this verse and see the Lord as a person far from them.
They’ll see the Lord as a deity in some distant place far from them, and separated from them and from who they are.
They would never align themselves with the Lord beyond following the words of scripture from an interpretation that was given to them by some church or some religious organization.
A person who thinks with an esoteric mind, and an esoteric belief system will see the mystical value within this verse.
It says “For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.”
The true mystic knows the value of this verse.
Whether we live or die both are consequences of the Lord.
This has nothing to do with a physical death as the church’s would want you to believe, but this has everything to do with the person who is able to live and not die in sorrow and their gripes with life.
The Lord is the human imagination as Lord means power or the authoritative figure. The Lord is the imagination of man, and with this you will either live or die.
All are the Lord’s, meaning your imagination will make you live, or it will make you die.
Based on your imaginal acts, and based on what you constantly dwell on this will either give you life, or give you death.
A person who has given themselves life, will be a person who finds solutions, instead of complaining about their problems.
A person who finds life will also be the person that will give life to others because they create joy which is then contagious.
Just like how pain and strife is contagious, so is joy.
So I want you to think about this, and then go out there and see that you will be the unique individual that you always wanted to be the minute that you start to take an esoteric approach instead of one that is exoteric..
Now, sit back and think about what was just said..
The masses believe in a exoteric approach, while the mystical thinkers are the esoteric ones who are always looking deeper and willing to gain more knowledge and get a greater connection to GOD.
