ARCHEOSOFICA

Archeosofica” is an esoteric school, inner and profound, a Study Center and, for those who wish it, also a non-profit cultural association (Archeosophical Society) which prepares, guides and perfects its followers towards the knowledge of themselves, of the higher worlds and  of God, thanks to the investigation and development of new senses, called “spiritual senses”, and leads them to High Initiation.

The Archeosophical Ascesis

It is the task of the Archeosophical Ascesis to point out to its adherents the itinerary to start on the path of perfection: an itinerary that must concern itself with the whole human being. The human person is not just emotive soul, mind-spirit and eros, but is also body, it has, in brief, material components. Religion, according to us, must strive for the salvation not of just a part of man, but of the whole man. This is confirmed by Jesus Christ who was a physician of bodies and souls, as is witnessed by his healings. We know that some religions place too much emphasis on material elements, while others, on the contrary, center on the spiritual nature of man and woman. An integral religion takes both of these components into account, because, if it were not so, it would condemn to failure the devotees who faithfully entrust themselves to it. The integral religion can be none other than esoteric Christianity, preceded by the exoteric, or popular, one for the masses. If once the great Clement of Alexandria stated: “I keep certain things under silence, by a willful choice, for fear of writing things which I have even avoided saying … I would not give … a sword to a child …” (‘Stromata’ I,1,14,3), today we believe it useful to break, albeit cautiously, this useless and harmful silence. Jesus in his times made use of the twofold language: a public speech and a private dialogue, and he said: “Do not give that which is holy unto the dogs, and do not throw the pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matthew, VII, 6). In two thousand years many things have changed, therefore we do not believe that we are all, without distinction all, dogs or swine. “For everything” – says Ecclesiastes (III, 1-7) – “there is its moment, and for every purpose comes its hour under the heaven … a time to keep silence and a time to speak”. Today, it seems to us that the moment has come to speak. At least to a certain extent, without disclosing to the profane world that which concerns ritualistic initiation. Archeosophy proposes an integral Ascesis, composed, that is, of other integrative asceses which we enumerate as follows:
1) – PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOSOMATIC ASCESIS, for the physical well being and the maximum balance and performance of the body, its energies, for the purpose of making it a temple of the spirit: a necessary basis for preparing a good karma (destiny) in view of the ‘resurrection of the body’, healthy and beautiful.
2) – SOCIAL ASCESIS, that is the effort, exercise, the methodical and progressive action to become a perfect citizen and to make oneself a spokesman of a new society resting on the pillars of charity, non-violence, reciprocal economic, cultural and spiritual assistance.
3) – MYSTICAL ASCESIS, through an intense devotional life of dialogue with the Divinity; a process of inner transmutation leading to active ecstasy, to the vision of the Light. It is the Alchemist’s Opus in White, the entrance into the Waters of Life, the sojourn of the Saints:  the prelude to a new state of superior ascent towards the Kingdom of God.
4) – THEURGICAL ASCESIS, or progressing with the rites which attract the friendship and help of God, of the Christ, of the Mother, and of the helpful Spirits: Angelic, Archangelic and of the Universal Communion of the Adepts and the Saints.
5) – MAGICAL ASCESIS, the effort and action to dominate the forces of Nature. Read the definition of Magic we have given in our Encyclopedic Dictionary of Archeosophy ( Booklet 40 – first part).
6) – COSMIC ASCESIS, the action and advance towards a syntony or cosmicization with the whole: heavenly bodies, elements, heavens, etc.
7) – SAPIENTIAL OR INITIATIC ASCESIS, that is, the spiritual elevation of oneself through the Knowledge and particular practices leading to an inner transmutation and to the qualitative leap. It is the way to come out of the Waters of the phenomenal world, the going beyond the mystical state, it is the Christic walking above the Waters. It is the perennial wakefulness and the Alchemist’s Opus in Red, that is the royal state of who has finally exited from the game of creation.
All these forms of ascesis will be explained as doctrine and as practice in special booklets, for it would be untimely to insist in this panoramic and introductory treatment, whose only purpose is to inform you about the existence and substance of ‘Archeosofica’. It is obvious that the subject matter presented requires the didactic co-operation of a real Master, who instructs and who clarifies ideas. Only thus will the student transform himself or herself into a Disciple or Discipless, and receive the progressive human Initiation: the real and true integral priesthood, the opening of the consciousness to the spiritual influences of the Cosmic Initiator.
The Cosmic Initiator is only one: the Christ, He who will return to judge the living and the dead. Let us prepare ourselves in good time, before the Angel of Death comes and knocks at our door. He could arrive at any moment, and at any moment we must be ready for the great journey. It would be a serious tragedy not to have already become Children of the Most High, endowed with all the powers of the Adept. Charity and wisdom are a great patrimony, but are not enough to be saved. The crossing of the astral ocean implies meeting the ‘astral delinquency’, the snares of the Guardian of the Threshold, the state of sleep and dream, the tormenting oscillations between awakening and falling asleep again in a world of ghosts, illusions, then the plunge back into a new body here on earth. Only with the Ascesis can one gain self-awareness, the memory of past lives, the conscious rapport with the Reality, because Archeosophy with its practical, experimental methods, indicates how to change the consciousness, the quality of this consciousness, from bestial into human, and from human into superhuman, with the practice of pure esotericism, which is to say, transcendence, initiation and metaphysical realization.   Continue Reading

THE PREREQUISITES OF THE ARCHEOSOPHICAL ASCESIS

When we speak of ‘ascesis’ we are referring to that inner process, that struggle which commits the human being to perfect himself and to ascend the steps towards the union with God. Ascesis is a toilsome work, it is the physical, moral, psychic and spiritual education that we shall explain in the booklets of our program. The ascent or ascesis rests on the knowledge of laws, methods and concepts confirmed by observation and by experimentation:
  1.  the ebb and flow of universal life, that is, the twofold current that constitutes the movement of the world;
  2. the material unity of the universe;
  3. the organic evolution;
  4. the states of consciousness that, along with suggestion and hypnosis, differ from the ordinary state;
  5. the plurality of forms, namely man composed of various subtle bodies presided over by three principles: spirit, emotive soul and erosdynamic soul;
  6. the centers of force and the igneous Power;
  7. the planetary evolution;
  8. the doctrine of reincarnation;
  9. the unity of religions;
  10. the Messiahs and the Christic geocentricism;
  11. the mystic state and the state beyond, or initiatic, etc.
But besides this knowledge, ascesis consists of a preparation of the physical body, of its energetic mechanisms and of the emotive-mental sphere, perfecting and bringing the psychosomatic unity to an openness towards Humanity, the Whole and God. To this end, there exist special gymnastic trainings concerning the entire human compound, to which are added the practices of Theurgy[1], or Divine Magic, and a wise use of the astronomical rhythms. In the present conditions, the official religions, even those endowed with Sacraments, are incapable of guaranteeing the salvation of souls and their spiritual happiness; nor can anything concrete or decisive be achieved by the various societies of esoteric culture, which set out with the good intentions and seriousness of their founders, men or women, but are mired by ascetic laziness and lack of solidarity, and also hampered by the insufficiency of preparation. Their spiritual direction is ineffectual, the spiritual presence disputable. By this we do not want to criticize, because we are all brothers and we must unite, love each other and work together. The times require the co-operation of all, and we offer a Way which is safe, swift, direct, towards the overcoming of one’s own moral, psychic, spiritual and biological state. [1] T.
