Someone wondered if it is possible at all to reconcile “Western esoterism”, with its detailed maps of levels, degrees, basic energies, in spiritual evolution. With a more here-and-now spirituality of, like, I think it was Vivekananda.
For me, it has always been the Danish mystic Martinus Thomsen, on the one hand, and the Theosophical apostate Jiddu Krishnamurti, on the other, who have given a headache. It has felt like they are fishing in the same lake, but the fish they have drawn up and put forward have looked so different?
Perhaps there is a mystery laid down here. Spirituality’s equivalent of the wave-particle duality of physics.
