5040Re: HK's God-Realization Promise and the 8th Initiation!
- Oct 29, 2009Well said Promethius! But then again as I have said, there really is only one link up or one true initiation. IMO, all other initiations are EK ankar's way of maintaining 'customer base'. The God Realized state can only be achieved through diligence by the chela to establish a one on one relationship with Divine Source. Strange though, I seem to remember reading somewhere in the works of ECK that after the chela reaches the 5th world, the Lord Sat Nam takes over looking after the chela and his jorney into God Consciousness. I may be wrong, but I do believe I saw this somewhere in Paul's writings.
