" Know yourself "the origin, the meaning and the purpose, explained by René Guénon 2/3

knowurself1

So there is a preparation for the wisdom which is higher than philosophy , which doesnot concern  the reason, but the soul and spirit , and we can call it inner preparation , and it seems it had been the highest levels of the school of Pythagoras . It has extended its influence through the school of Plato to the neo -Platonism of the Alexandrian school , where it appears  clearly again . If for this inner preparation words are still used , these  could no longer be taken only as symbols for fixing the inner contemplation.By this preparation , man is led to some states that allow him to exceed the rational knowledge that he  previously achieved , and  as all this is above the level of reason , its was also above philosophy since the name of philosophy is always used in fact to describe something that belongs only to the reason  . However, it is surprising that  modern  consider philosophy as if it were complete in itself , and so they forget what is higher . .

The first philosophers, especially Pythagoras , had consider their education , as being a new expression of the old ideas . There were several kinds of mysteries with diverse origins. Those that inspired Pythagoras and Plato were related to the cult of Apollo . “Mysteries” always had a reserved and secret character , the word “mystery”  itself  means etymologically the  total silence , since things which are related to could not be expressed by words , but only taught by a silent way . But modern who ignore any other method which doesnt involve the use of words,  falsely believed ,  that there was no teaching . We can say that this silent teaching was using figures , symbols, and other means designed to bring man to the inner states allowing him to gradually achieve the  real knowledge or wisdom  . This was the essential and ultimate goal of all the “mysteries” .

As for the “mysteries” that were specifically related to the cult of Apollo and Apollo himself , it must be remembered that he was the God of sun and light ,in the spiritual sense it s   the source from where  all knowledge  , arts and sciences derive.

The error and the impasse of the modern psychology

psychologist

The requirement imposed on anyone who wants to practice psychoanalysis as a profession is to be first ” psychoanalyzed ” himself..So from what source did the first psychoanalyst obtain the “power ” that they communicate to their disciples, and by whom where they themselves ” psychoanalyzed in the first place..from what source then did modern psychology first originated ??

This question touches upon the very kernel of this issue !

No psychology or science of the soul without Metaphysic

An authentic and integral psychology needs a priori to be rooted in and intrinsically connected to a spiritual tradition in order to be effective. Indeed each orthodox spiritual tradition contains a corresponding integral psychology, since the spirit simultaneously supersedes the psyche and includes it, however the reverse is not true for the psychology , as the psyche is always subordinated to what is higher than it , namely spirit..

We racall an illuminating point that speaks to the unanimity of all integral psychologies that correspond to their traditional spiritualities before the rupture of the modern world “ There is no science of the soul without a metaphysical basis to it and without spiritual remedies at it s disposal “

Modern psychology has not only radically left but negates it s metaphysical origin, it now seeks to cure the mind in isolation rather than recognize the separation of the soul from the spiritual domain as the roots of the problem.

Indeed , the word “mental” is often used to indicate the domain which has been explored by western psychologist and which is often expressed by the word ” psyche” so as to avoid religious inferences suggested by the word ” soul” and his
