Most of the knowledge human beings seek to acquire helps them to earn a living or to shine in the company of others.
It is of no use to them in overcoming life’s hardships.
Initiatic knowledge, on the other hand, may not help them find a job or impress their audience, but it supports them in their psychic life because it concerns their deeper nature and it enables them to work on their own matter so as to reach a stage where they have control of themselves, in whatever situation.
Initially you will not fully understand the benefit of this knowledge because it acts slowly and deeply, and it does not produce great results immediately. But one day you will come to realize that you are not getting what you need out of the ever-growing body of knowledge that presents itself to you on a daily basis through books, newspapers, radio and television, and you will then turn to initiatic knowledge.
