There is a temple near me that I’m trying to learn more about, whether it’s something to get involved with or not. The place is really beautiful, lovingly restored buildings from the 1500’s in the middle of nature, some parts cared for and some left to grow on their own. I discovered the place when looking for tantric life coach training, apparently that’s one of the things they offer.
The temple advertises itself as a mystery school for something called Trans-Himalayan teachings. According to it all life springs forth from Spirit as Souls, which are our higher selves, and to grow further towards Spirit as Souls we’ve taken a collective gamble (we as Earth here I think) to spread ourselves to lower and more dense frequencies to take a Personality, also known as an Ego, in hope to learn to integrate it. You know the saying “if a tree is to reach all the way to Heaven it needs roots that reach all the way to Hell”. It does sound consistent with what I’ve learned before at least.
Then there’s this thing, that humanity is going through a major and painful Soul Initiation right now. It’s a touchy subject and putting it like that might be triggering to some, feeling like it diminishes the personal suffering they and their loved ones are going through. I’m sorry if it does, I feel for you. Still many of us have already woken up to our spirituality during this crisis. I know I have.
Then comes the hard part: seeming knowledge of “how things really work”, including several higher planes of existence beyond our physical, mental and emotional. Knowledge of beings on those planes, including ascended masters, conveniently from who most of this information comes from, all the way to the supreme creator of the multiverse. I can’t really say anything on this right now, it doesn’t feel immediately wrong at least. We’ll see where this and further lives take us.
They do seem genuine people with good hearts and souls, but then I know some people can mask their intentions well. I want to keep my mind open and free of fear, but keep my discernment. Is it a cult? It very much looks like one. Is it something I need in my life? Not strictly. Would it be good for me? I can’t know that yet with the little information I have.
