In ancient times the practitioners of the Western tradition had a clear vision of the total goal of their path.
The master teachers of the day aimed not only to convey as accurately as possible the true nature of the spiritual journey, but also to help the student clearly see their destination. The term used for this was often “Eudaemonia” or “True Success”. The term eudaimonia is a philosophical term to denote true and complete happiness; a flourishing on all levels. The derivation of the word is as follows: ‘eu’ meaning ‘well’, and ‘daimôn’ meaning ‘spirit’. To connect with the idea we need to imagine a situation where everything in your life is 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.
Written in the form a letter to a genuine seeker on this path, this book brings this ancient wisdom into modern language. The work guides the reader in the path of self-perfection and answers common questions and misunderstandings that still persist to this day and brings the reader’s understanding firmly to the true Hermetic path and a true vision of Adepthood.
