The Ageless Wisdom is a non-religious approach to spirituality, the nature of the Soul, and the development of consciousness. Also known as the Perennial Philosophy, Esoteric Philosophy, Mysticism, and prisca theologia, the Wisdom is a consensus from all cultures and all times about the Spiritual Reality of our lives as human Souls incarnate.

From ancient times, the Wisdom always has been known, yet hidden, veiled and secretly whispered from lip to ear only to the most worthy. To avoid persecution by the Church-State, the Great Mystery Schools were invisible colleges — a reference to the spiritual nature of the information as well as its hidden traditions, rules, principles, and ceremonies.

However, an even greater concern than being slaughtered by a Crusader or burned-at-the-stake by the Grand Inquisitor was the foreboding that the Ageless Wisdom would be lost forever if it became a religion — rigid, oversimplified dogma for the masses further distorted by institutionalized materialism and the lust for dominance.

In spite of great advances in science and technology, the extent of human cruelty and tolerance of gross injustice now requires those who possess the Ageless Wisdom to reveal it — not only for the most worthy, but now for everyone willing to open their hearts and minds to the Ultimate Unity behind the veil.

The Ageless Wisdom

  • is metaphysical in its recognition of Consciousness as the Spiritual Force behind all physical form.
  • is mystical in its emphasis on a Spiritual Path of self-initiated self-realization — largely free of ego-based masters and dogmatic religious doctrine.
  • is magical in its ability to manifest and refine form.
  • is contemplative in its approach to God-Absolute via feeling beyond thought, emotion, or physical sensation.

That Feeling, the Force that unifies all matter with its Spiritual Source, is Divine Lovethe longing of the part to be whole.

Wisdom quotes (page 2)

Deep in each one of us there is an inner pull toward some higher form of life, an underlying but insistent urge that prompts us — like the flower which innately turns toward the sun — to look toward something greater than ourselves.

— Roberto Assagioli (1888 - 1974)
Founder of Psychosynthesis

Believe in love's infinite journey, for it is your own, for you are love. Love is life.

Rumi (1207-1273)
Persian, Sufi mystic, poet.

Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.

1 John 4:8

All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source.

Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910), Russian novelist, philosopher.
