Awareness of the Unconscious
3
Every human is important to be aware of the actual reality, to experience their external
Every human is important to be aware of the actual reality, to experience their
external environment and inner world as it really is and not as they fantasize it
to be.
Being in touch with the actual reality of a person’s life results in:
1) The creation of a painful background which leads to the awareness of the
unconscious of the person’s existence, and
2) The tendency to seek for a change of the person’s ‘here and now’
When unaware, the person experiences (unconsciously) pain of malaise and
dissatisfaction. This pain is perceived by various psychical 2 and somatic
symptoms (stress, somatic anxiety disorders) which the person cannot
interpret.
As a result, the person becomes a potential Seeker, asked to follow the
proceedings of the transformation of his/her notions both about the external
environment and the inner world. This course of transformation consists of
successive transubstantiation of his/her entire human nature.
2 Psychical is everything that composes the psyche (mental level) of a person,
the aggregation of his emotional and cognitive functions.
Everything a person can feel, experience and think, constitutes the psyche.
Apart from humans, psyches also have the animals and the plants, at a
different level of development.
The mental level is governed by bipolarity (doublet). This means there are two
poles between which life vibrates (formed creation). The bipolarity is
expanded in multi-polarity but life always vibrates within two opposing poles.

Acceptance
5
Full acceptance means to realize and experience, within a controlled context, every aspect of the
Full acceptance means to realize and experience, within a controlled context,
every aspect of the unconscious psychic part, no matter how unreal it may
seem.
In this awareness process any kind of valid, scientific, non fanatic knowledge
can be very helpful.
Attention should be paid because there lays the danger of intellectualization –
rationalization. The purpose is to experience every single unconscious part in
its full intensity.
One parameter that confirms full acceptance of all psychic parts is for the
Seeker to find the corresponding aspects of his/hers psychic states in every
external situation he/she deals with.
Rejection 3 of any kind related to the Seeker’s external situation, disorients
him/her from the path of Truth.
It is important for every Seeker to know that every feeling and every psychic
aspect can be of absolute use.
The way these psychical elements are used is significant as it demonstrates
whether the aim is self-centric 4 or mature 5 .
3 Rejection: «I’m not jealous. I am not violent (physically or mentally). I do not
have immoral feelings or thoughts».
4 Entering the womb, the fetus feels love for the mother; she is his whole world
(universe). That is the reality for the fetus and subsequently for the newborn.
As the relationship between mother and baby is growing, any rejection or
frustration from the mother could traumatize the baby and cause severe pain
(due to the primordial rejection or frustration of the baby from the mother, as
she is his whole world).
[Rejection: «You do not have the right to exist, meaning, I want you to stop
being, meaning, I want you to die. ».
Frustration: «I allow you to exist but you do not have any right, meaning, you
have no right to feel and express any kind of need»].
To avoid pain, caused by the trauma, the ego (of the fetus or the newborn),
develops defense mechanisms to be protected from the revival of that pain.
This happens every time the person retrogresses, every time external
situations mobilize the emotional intensity of the trauma (primordial rejection
or frustration).
The rejected or frustrated needs of the baby create the ego-centric, childlike
part of the person’s psyche. This part is in excessive pain and uses the
defense mechanisms developed after experiencing the initial trauma, in order
to avoid pain every time the person retrogresses.
The use of the defense mechanisms results to the ego-centric (selfish)
behavior.
Every Seeker should recognize that every time a person has an ego-centric
behavior, using the defense mechanisms, actually the person has been
retrogressed, unconsciously, to the trauma and behind the mask of the
childlike, ego-centric behavior is in excessive pain.
The knowledge of the above help the Seeker develop a sense of compassion
(analyzed thoroughly in Stage #5) which has two prerequisites:
6
Suppose a person filled with hatred and dominated by his instincts to kill, if his
Suppose a person filled with hatred and dominated by his instincts to kill, if his
aim is ego-centric, he becomes an assassin, while if he has an adult aim he
becomes a surgeon. A person filled with love and dominated by his need for
companionship when acting in an ego-centric way becomes possessive
(symbiotic) while when acting in an adult manner forms a relationship based
on ultimate respect.
In depth contact with and acceptance of the psychical aspects lead the
Seeker to realize the distress caused by the cancellation of the internal
desire 6 (libido) – inherent in everybody – towards the real, mature, unselfish
life.
If the ego-centric part of the person’s psyche is not the predominant one and
the defense mechanisms are weakened, may be the time for the prevalence
7 of the will 8 to change.
a) The Seeker should first revive his/her own primordial pain and thus
discontinue his/her ego-centric behavior and
b)
Being in touch with the traumatic pain of others, the Seeker sets limits to
their childlike ego-centric demands in an adult manner.
5
The person gets in touch with the actual reality (analyzed thoroughly at
Stage 4) in a way that the unconscious or conscious childlike, ego-centric
emotions are not influencing his/her actions.
6
In a mental level, self-induced frustration, inhibition, barring desire occurs
when there is a primordial rejection or frustration of the initial desire – desire
for nurture from an accepting mother who is offering with affection to the
newborn. In defense, the newborn is frustrated, blocks the desire to avoid
being in pain due to the annulment of his desire from a rejecting mother.
The above mentioned self-induced frustration of the desire (depressive
background) may result to the automatic inhibition of the desire for spiritual
quest as well (in avoidance of the pain caused by any cancellation).
7
The emotional load of this decision is the pain caused by the trauma. The
childlike part of the psyche always strives to:
a) fulfill its rejected or cancelled needs and
b)
use its defenses to avoid pain.
When the mature (adult) part of the psyche is connected to the person’s ‘Here
and Now’ and decides according the adult interest, the childlike part feels
rejected and frustrated, is in pain even if this rejection derives from the
individual’s own adult part.
In this stage, every Seeker realizes that the process of fulfilling the adult
desire (avoidance of the ego-centric defenses) passes through the constant
revival of the pain caused by the primordial (childhood / psychic) trauma.
8
I have the will: I decide after thought – I desire because I have decided to.

Grounding

Grounding is composed by the acts of getting in touch with and experiencing the wholeness
Grounding is composed by the acts of getting in touch with and experiencing
the wholeness of the psyche in the actual reality, while simultaneously the
person manifests an adult attitude.
Adult attitude 9 should be constant in the Seeker’s everyday life.
Consequences of the adult attitude are:
1) a stoic – philosophical lifestyle, acting without emotional surges
(enactments) but also without mental rigidity,
2)
the creation of a psychic – astral vehicle to cross the astral world which is
the connection between the earthly – material level and the spiritual 10 level, to
reach the spiritual level.
The results of the manifestation of the person’s grounded, adult attitude are:
1)
to experience the guileless love 11 which pre-exists the primordial rejection
or frustration and goes beyond time and space
9 The Seeker is aware of:
a) of his/her mental side which is activated without any kind of censorship,
b) the ‘here and now’ of his/her life and
γ
) his /her adult interest
The result of this awareness is to be activated without the influence of ego-
centric (childlike) emotions.
10 Spiritual is everything composing the Divine Law from which emanates the
Divine Plan for the achievement of the formed creation.
Plato’s theory of Forms and Ideas – Archetypes are the names by which the
Divine Plan is known.
Central role in the Divine Plan has the One Law (the Law of Divine Harmony)
on which is expanding both the unformed (Platonic World of Ideas) and the
formed (manifested) creation.
The One Law (Law of Divine Harmony) is the first manifested, unchanged
Divine Essence, which coincides with number zero – 0.
In the core of every individual there is a Divine Essence which at the same
time is part and whole of the cosmic (universal) Divine Essence.
Being in connection with their individual Divine Essence (inner self), every
Seeker is connected with the universal Divine Essence because, as
mentioned above, the individual Divine Essence is at the same time part and
wholeness of the universal Divine Essence.
Spirituality is governed by non-polarity, by Unity (Integrity), hence by Number
One.
Every Archetype expands in two opposing poles within which life vibrates (see
footnote 2).
11 See footnote 4.
Because of the primordial rejection or frustration, the fetus (or the newborn)
hates the person – object (mother) who is making it suffer absolute pain.
Later, the newborn feels disgust for the transacting care given by the mother,
primordial object, because of this absolute pain.
Fear is located in between:

2)
to save the necessary psychical energy for crossing the astral world. If the
Seeker repels some of his/her psychical sides by rejecting them, not only
loses the energy contained in the repelled sides but also the energy is using
to
keep them undisclosed. As a result, there is lack of the necessary energy
required for setting off the esoteric process. An important clarification: there is
a
difference between accepting one’s sides and having an ego – centric
behavior (see footnote 9).
a)
pain and hatred (afraid of the pain that can, since it is absolute, lead to
despair and madness),
and / or
b)
hatred and disgust (fear to hate the person – object causing this absolute
pain, if the object is killed by the fetus or the newborn then the fetus or the
newborn will die as well).
To feel the primordial love, the individual should realize and experience the
above mentioned emotional process in reverse order. This means to feel
disgust à fear à hatred à fear à pain à love.
To feel the guileless love which pre-exists the primordial rejection or
frustration and goes beyond time and space, in other words to love
completely, the individual should experience and encompass, in an adult
manner, without repulsion, all the aforementioned emotions.

Obviate the Projections
11

People comprehend – feel the outer world by projecting on the outer objects (psychology term which defines and designates the individuals) and situations (facts) their own psychical sides. As a result, people experience subjectively the real (objective) world.

Adult behavior can lead to the experience of the objective – actual reality 12 , to the obviation of the psychical projections. Criterion of whether the obviation of projections is successful, is the constant revival of the pain (trauma). The childlike part of the psyche tends to perceive 13 parental presence everywhere even if the parents have hurt it (rejected it – frustrated it) completely.

If the Seeker is able to withdraw his/her psychical projections every time then is able to see the reality of the process he/she has to go through in the astral (psychic) world which will lead him/her to the spiritual level (cosmos).

The obviation of the psychical projections results in:

1)

Bridging the schism 14 (Alchemical compound of the opposites 15 ), and

12 See footnote 9.

 

13 See footnote 4.

Two analogous versions of the theory of defense, having exactly the same results for the individuals both on their emotional reality and their activation in the outside world are:

a)

the theory about the recurrence of the recorded emotional scenario: the

interactive emotional relationship the individual (fetus – newborn – infant) has with the persons – objects that surround it (parents) from the moment it enters the womb (conception) until the third year of his life (minor additional influences until the sixth year), creates an emotional – psychical scenario the individual repeats (revives) throughout his life in response to different external stimuli. The dominant object, from conception until the first nine months of life, is the mother. The father at that time acts subsidiary by supporting the mother

to provide correctly.

 

b)

the theory about the introjection of the object relations: the individual

introjects (internalizes – appropriates appends) the disposition of his/her parents, the sum of these dispositions constitutes the individual’s disposition.

The Seeker is asked to realize – experience both the scenario and the introjections, to act consciously (being in contact with his/her emotions) and his/her actions be free from psychical – emotional – childlike influences. It is easy to understand that the above mentioned procedure is immensely painful (see footnote 7).

14

The schism is a fundamental defense mechanism created by the ego in order the individual to bear at the same time:

a) the pain caused by the primordial rejection – frustration and

b)

receiving care from the rejecting object (mother) who is causing immense

pain. To combine these situations the individual (fetus – newborn) introjects two objects (mothers), the first is rejecting and the second (different from the first)

is providing. The result is to experience one object as two opposite ones
(rejecting – frustrating and providing).
In the adult world, the schism defense mechanism leads the individual to
swing into contradictory emotions towards the people – objects in his/her
environment.
The transition occurs depending on whether the object’s action is painful for
the egocentric child, whether the child feels that the object is providing or not.
For example, if a person - object primarily seen as providing, for any reason
even minor or fantastic, is experienced as non-providing (rejecting –
frustrating), the schism is activated and the object is rejected (the individual
does not want the object in his/her life acting like his/her mother who rejected
him/her from her life).
15 Conscious – Unconscious. In practice is the experience of one real –
objective world and not of many, analogous to the childlike emotions.
16 See footnote 7 and 9.
When the Seeker is able to encompass his/her ego-centric childlike part and
act irrespectively of the childlike emotions, his adult part inevitably cancels the
childlike impulses and revives the pain of the primordial rejection – frustration.
The advantage of the adult frustration is the use of the childlike impulse
energy (primordial desire) from the Seeker to achieve any adult aim.
This procedure is indeed very painful though the result could be brilliant (the
entire emotional world assisted by the cognitive function as a whole, work
together to achieve the adult aim).
17 Alchemic substantiation through the element of Fire (consciousness), in
practice is the use of the childlike impulse energy of every ego-centric part in
the achievement of any adult aim, with an adult attitude.

Sealing the Completion of the Psychic – Astral Vehicle

14

To confirm that the creation of the appropriate – correct astral (psychic) vehicle is completed,
To confirm that the creation of the appropriate – correct astral (psychic)
vehicle is completed, it should be tested interactively in the actual reality. The
Seeker is asked to develop and manifest his/her compassion (not just his
tolerance) for the childlike ego-centric part of others. This ego-centric part
should be experienced and comprehended as being the mirror of the ego-
centric part of the Seeker’s psyche.
The Seeker is asked to know and feel that people use their ego defenses,
behave in an ego-centric manner when, for whatever reason, they are
retrogressed and thus the pain of their primordial trauma is mobilized.
The Seeker is asked to know and feel that behind the ego-centric – painful
behavior towards him or among people, there is a child in immense pain.
The Seeker is asked to constantly recognize his/her childlike part behind the
ego-centric behavior of others.
The Seeker may, by experiencing the pain of his/her trauma in every ego-
centric behavior of others presented and reflected to him/her, feel compassion
for them.
Consequently, endurance to the pain of the primordial trauma and activation
in accordance with an adult attitude are the criteria for the consolidation 18 of
compassion. This compassion has no trace of pity, as pity is ruled by disgust.
Solid evidence for the consolidation of compassion is the ability to accept and
respect every different, ego-centric – fanatic – dogmatic – childlike belief.
Accepting, of course, does not mean to lack adult limits to the ego-centric
behavior of others. Besides, the adult interest of any human never contradicts
the adult interest of another – (Alchemical marriage, formation of the
Androgynous 19 ).
18 Feeling lonely, inevitably, follows compassion.
The Seeker realizes that being compassionate has altered his/her emotional
dialogue with others. The result is lack of communication.
This results from the ego-centric behavior of others. It is impossible for them
to understand the Seeker’s adult attitude and they are trying in every way to
make him/her as well behave in an ego-centric manner (childlike).
19 Androgynous is the person who has realized his/her entire psyche, united
the Masculine – Conscious part with the Feminine – Unconscious part.
The capstone of this Alchemical procedure is the unification of the Conscious
part with the core of the psyche, the center of the Unconscious (Jung had
chosen for Center the names of Animus for ♀ και Anima for ♂ ) consequently,
the transformation of a raw human to a complete one, able to knock
courageously the Mysteries’ door, hoping they will be disclosed.

Evidence for the manifestation of the complete human in the actual reality, is

A
fundamental adult aim every Seeker should set is the material – emotional

The Seeker is asked to be constantly activated in producing adult creations
and move towards his/her material – emotional sufficiency.
Every Seeker is asked to know that the adult creation is the precursor for
his/her spiritual creation and his/her identity for the spiritual process.
Consequence of the adult creation is the active philanthropy, the psychic

vehicle of which is compassion 22 and aims at reducing pain
of any kind.
The completion of the first six Stages is a prerequisite for anyone who wants
to
become a Mentor and be able to guide correctly other people.
Every Mentor (parent, teacher, psychotherapist, politician etc) in order to be
able to guide without being influenced by his/her psychical condition, should
complete the first six Stages, otherwise the experiences will be repeated, as
received, to the people he/she is guiding.
The completion of the first six Stages is also a necessary prerequisite for
every Mentor in order to start the spiritual process. If the six Stages remain
incomplete, they should at least be realized (experienced in depth), otherwise
any spiritual progress is only a fantasy.

Sufficiency (material – emotional) is the ability to exist and survive without
being dependent (having a symbiotic relation) on any substance – action -
person.
The basis of sufficiency is the acceptance of human’s inability to survive on
their own and the need for adult assistance from the others; not the childlike
dependence (parental relationship) on others when for any reason they do not
want to offer.

Spiritual Deficiency
18
Every Seeker having contact with the actual reality, being an adult and keeping his/her creative
Every Seeker having contact with the actual reality, being an adult and
keeping his/her creative part activated through adult creation, has the
requirements to experience adult happiness in his/her life. But, although there
is adult happiness, the person feels deficient. The deficiency is not of the
psyche the person is psychically complete, feeling compassion for other
people (Stage 5). The reason the person feels deficient is that feels
incomplete in a level superior to the psychical.
The Seeker should pay great attention to the nature of this deficiency because
it is supplementary to the psychical completion, the adult attitude, the
sufficiency (material and emotional), the loneliness and the compassion hence
it is accompanied by the constant contact with the pain of the primordial
trauma.
If the Seeker is deficient due to psychical parameters has retrogressed 24 to
the primordial trauma, then should arrange his/her psychical level (Stages 1 –
6) because the experience (deficit) is not spiritual.
Consequence of the Seeker’s spiritual deficiency is the experience of:
1) adult pain due to remoteness from the Divine Source, and
2) eager adult desire and will to return to his/her origin Source.
This is a revival of Stage 1 in a superior – spiritual level.
24 In this case the sufficiency lays in the childlike part which eagerly desires an
accepting – providing – supporting parent (mainly the mother) who will provide
and support it in every aspect of its life.

Every Seeker, felling the eager desire and will to return to his/her Divine
Source of origin, to the spiritual level from which all emanate and all return, is
led to look for and find the spiritual path.
The Seeker is asked to know that every internal process should be under the
protection of an organised Mystical Tradition.
The theurgical activities of the framed – grounded Mystical paths are based in
authentic – organized rituals. As a result, theurgical activities are valid
regardless of the psychic – emotional, ego-centric state of the person who
performs the ritual (theurgical activity).
The performed ritual should be structured in a way that every participant
Seeker could experience the ritual’s entity itself, regardless of the performer.
The theurgical activities – rituals should be unaffected from the persons who
perform them.
Initiatory paths without the protection of a Mystical Tradition are spiritually
unsupported because they are lacking inner frame and can become prey for
any ego-centric ignorant.
Every Mystical Tradition should be authentic, directly connected with the
spiritual level and accredited by it.
Authentic Mystical traditions have certain qualities:
1) They fully accept, not just tolerate, all the mental aspects of the
participants.
2) They allow the adult manifestation of all mental aspects, setting adult 25
limits to every ego-centric behavior; therefore, have a non-authoritarian
functioning.
3) The philosophical background (theory), on which the Initiatory process is
grounded should not be rigid, on the contrary, should be developing according
to documented scientific revisions. Aristotle’s view that when a theory is not
consistent with the scientific evolution, should change the theory not the
scientific framework is the base of a solemn esoteric process. Evolution of the
philosophical background according to science or inspiration is fair, but each
change should be based on the revised Initiatory process.
4) They claim to posses the Truth like other solemn esoteric organizations. No
serious esoteric organization claims the absolute Truth that no one else
knows. Comparative religion can enrich the Mystical path of a solemn
Initiatory process.
Choosing the appropriate esoteric organization should match the Seeker’s
status, meaning the Initiatory path should match his/her physique 26 and
25 Stage 5: The adult interest of any human never contradicts the adult interest
of another
26 It should be easy for the Seeker to take the bodily positions the rituals
demand. Standing for a long time, often and repeated kneeling, prone or
supine elongation, lotus position etc, could be deterrent for someone’s
physique. In this case the Seeker should look for a different – appropriate
path.

psychical 27 structure, otherwise there is the risk of finding themselves in a
deadlock.
The Seeker should know that multiple spiritual activities show lack of esoteric
solemnity.
A solemn Seeker is asked to investigate thoroughly and in detail before
choosing which path to follow. Entering the Initiatory process the Seeker
should decide his/her staying or withdrawal regardless of his/her psychical
projections. This is another confirmation that is necessary for the Seeker to
have completed the first six Stages before entering any Initiatory path.
This is about a revival of Stages 2 and 3, in a superior – spiritual level.
Inability to follow the Initiatory process due to the person’s physique is
experienced as a rejection (despair), mobilizes the primordial pain and may
cause frustration for all esoteric organizations.
27 Initiatory processes should avoid activities that mobilize internal conflicts
because there is the risk of raising psychical defenses and miss the desired
spiritual effect. Initiatory processes certainly mobilize psychical sides so as to
be realized but the required activities should not be in contradiction with the
psychical structure of the Seeker (sacrifices of any kind) as that would
mobilize the defenses (rationalization) and disorientate the Initiatory process.

Spiritual Coupling

A solemn Initiatory path leads ultimately to the continuous communion –
connection with the Divine level. This connection is achieved simultaneously
both with the internal (inner self) and the external, Divine Essence, which are
identical concepts.
A solemn Mystical path passes through the experience 28 of:
1) the formed (manifested) creation on its whole,
2) the Laws (Archetypes – Plato’s theory of Forms and Ideas), which govern
the formed creation and its rhythm (Divine Plan),
3) the Divine Law (Law of Divine Harmony).
At the end of the path there is the Sacred Marriage with spirituality and the
absolute coupling (devotion) to it.
This is a revival of Stages 4 and 5 in a superior – spiritual level.
