A Clear Vision of the Goal

The Inspiration for this Work

Just as knowledge of the location of a destination is most important to a successful journey, so too is a clear vision of a goal to its accomplishment.

In the second century AD, a man called Iamblichus wrote a treatise called Theurgia or The Egyptian Mysteries. It was his attempt to convey as accurately as possible the true nature of the Egyptian spiritual path, a subject in which he was an expert, being an initiate himself. In order to artistically present work, he wrote it in the form of a response penned by an Egyptian priest called Abammon answering hard questions and accusations against the path from a famous Greek Neopythagorean (who Iamblichus had studied under) called Porphyry. The outstanding work answers common questions and misunderstandings that still persist to this day and brings the reader’s understanding firmly to the true Hermetic path.

At the end of the text, there is a summary of the total goal of the path. He called this Eudaemonia or the True Success. The term eudaimonia is a philosophical term to denote true and complete happiness. It means a flourishing on all levels. The derivation of the word is as follows: ‘eu’, meaning‘well’, and ‘daimôn’, meaning ‘spirit’. Imagine a situation where everything in your life was flourishing; good mood, good fortune, good friends, the right job, the right place. Picture contagious prosperity that amplifies throughout the whole of your life.

In modern terminology, we would perhaps use the term “Adepthood” to express the same idea. Total self-perfection and success through harmony and oneness. When I read this work I was inspired in an all-encompassing way. The text was so beautiful, simple and direct. For days I spent my time in a subtle form a euphoria uplifted and infused by the vision the words put forth. It was as if my mind had fully grasped the ideal state of being and this vision was lifting me towards it.

This feeling became an inspiration to share this with those genuinely seeking the vision of Hermes.

In order to help sincere practitioners, I started work on a small essay in the form of a letter written to render the wisdom of the ancients completely into contemporary terminology so as to render it easy to understand to the modern reader. The goal is to create a guiding light in the form of a vision of true adept-hood.

About Martin

My life's work has been to learn and master the art of meditation. To do this I have practiced and studied meditation with unbroken, daily discipline for over two decades as taught in the works of Franz Bardon. However, just like Bardon himself, I have also dedicated my life to gathering what is of use from different traditions around the world - whether hidden in the Japanese mountains, Egyptian desert or with the Indian yogis.
