The Esoteric – the Grace of God on Earth

What is the esoteric? Perhaps the easiest way to grasp what the esoteric looks like is simply to engage with a baby and feel the connection, the warmth, openness and equality of affection that is expressed unequivocally to all by the infant, while observing how this childlike expression of these qualities elicits from everyone a deep regard for the delicateness of the infant, a sense of joy in relating to her/him and a melting, warm feeling in the chest – in fact, a gentle surrender to the self-same qualities within oneself.

This is the esoteric – a connection with the innermost heart we are all born with, which somehow becomes layered over with the complication and heavily laden webs of mental activity and emotionality as we develop into what is seen as a normal, functioning human being. Yet this latter version of normality has a tendency to deny the strength, and even the existence of, this connection, bringing us all to a place where our esoteric is either completely unknown or miss-defined and bastardised in our dictionaries the world over to mean:

“Very unusual and understood or liked by only a small number of people, especially those with special knowledge.” (1)

How has something we are all born with, something that is completely innate and natural to us all, as witnessed in a baby, have come to mean something exclusive, secretive, and mysterious and known only by a privileged few? Especially when any direct experience with one’s esoteric instantly brings a sense of love-filled, equal and abiding respect for all? How did we allow this on a global scale, as well as with each child born into this world?

A life lived in connection with one’s esoteric naturally brings a deeply felt sense of composure with life: the capacity to hold oneself and others as though in a tender embrace, deeply observing of the multitude of forceful energies that beset us all on a daily basis – what we often refer to as the stresses of life – and offering in the face of such tumult a consistency of love, including those times where it is necessary to offer potentially challenging home truths. All that is not of love is sensitively felt from within as an impostor to the truth of who we are and hence called out as not belonging to the quality of energy that is being lived, not only for oneself, but as a mirror wherein all may see their own reflection and recognise it as their true quality also.

Why would any of us refuse, ignore or bury this connection with Divinity with which we are blessed at birth, to exchange it for a life lived in pursuit of identifying of oneself as an individual, proving oneself according to the externally derived and unforgiving, but socially validated, standards of the outside world?

History indicates the disturbing frequency with which those who have lived the esoteric have been persecuted for choosing to live in a way that brings true community and brotherhood for all and a life lived in service to one’s brethren (2). All the while, these times of persecution did force communities of esoteric underground – and then labelled them as ‘secretive’ for being underground.

We are not as a species a race of bullies. Bullies and the force of bullying most assuredly exist but the majority of us do not fall into this category at all. No – most of us fall more into the category of bystanders, those who allow by our collective silence the force of bullying to flourish.

So whilst the force of bullying does its utmost to crush the esoteric and its expression, it is the bystanders who tacitly affirm by inactivity and apathy that such is life in a ‘dog eat dog world.’

I have never personally witnessed a dog mistreating a fellow dog in this way, however I observe daily the attempt to suppress the esoterically derived natural joy and wonder at life expressed by children and by some adults through what can be the harsh, mental rigours of the education system. It would be seriously verboten (forbidden) to suggest that love be an integral part of the curriculum, that is, both the expression of love in our language and the activity of love in relationship with the knowledge that is taught in schools.

It is a common belief that God, under most of the names conferred upon him by institutionalised religion, did create this planet we call our home. It would seem logical that the presence of His hand in this would naturally lend itself to connecting with the absolute Love that brought forth all that we see in nature and beyond our world to the stars. So why is this excluded from the curriculum?

Is it part of the conundrum – that this can all be felt from our innermost, our esoteric, and that beckoning the esoteric to feel, to express and to flourish would open up our true relationship with Our Father? Having accepted a relationship that is outside the parameters of any currently existing church, we would then need to accept and understand that this relationship with God is that of the Son – His Son – all of us as His Sons and that the esoteric is our bridge back to this truth and to this way of living.

Is it possible that this way of living would upset way too many applecarts for our collective comfort? In a world where we award and reward top of the ladder, singular individuals for their prowess in academia, in sport, in business and in research, is the prospect of God given equality across the board simply too much for us to handle? The grace and love of God that is found in our innermost knows neither distinction nor boundary. It is in its nature to behold us all and to express the grace of God on earth through our esoteric. Is this why we crush and suppress it?

But this suppression buries the most precious part of us all – the part that feels and loves, the part that expresses tenderness and deep affection, the part that holds all with grace as divinely equal brothers.

How much of a travesty have we perpetrated upon ourselves to live in a world where few live from their esoteric and the majority have a false definition of the term – if they have heard of it at all? Why do we deny the grace of God on earth?

  1. Holding onto the Esoteric can be difficult. If we use the baby example and play either loud music, a movie or take them to where there is a party where people are drinking alcohol, and then witness what happens to the child and the crying and disturbed state it goes into, we start to understand that we are more than physical and energy has an effect on us! Bringing Love back to these babies, we can then also learn how simple it is to hold the connection to our Esoteric, Inner-most-heart, Essence/Soul and the simplicity of what you have presented Coleen.

    1. We see energy at play all the time in our lives, some great examples of places that affect our equilibrium, ‘we are more than physical and energy has an effect on us!’

  2. The teaching and understanding of the spirit and Soul and how they differ in their way of living life makes all of the confusing starkly clear.

  3. “Very unusual and understood or liked by only a small number of people, especially those with special knowledge” – yes, as a result of many not choosing to stay connected and live from that place, but not by design.

  4. ‘The grace and love of God that is found in our innermost knows neither distinction nor boundary’ – this feels so true. There are no boundaries or distinction to God, there is only one way to him and that is through the connection of you. Through this connection, we are the mirrors to others, if they so chose to do so – it is that simple.

  5. Those who have personally gained materially at the expense of others have been in the ascendancy, and still are at present, and hence have been able to crush those who have been esoteric but have not crushed the esoteric, the Ageless Wisdom. As Truth always eventually prevails so too will the esoteric and it will be ascendant.

    1. What you say is the plain truth jstewart51
      That institutions may have been able to crush those who live by their inner hearts (esoterically), but no one can crush the Ageless Wisdom as the truth cannot be crushed and lives on generation after generation and eventually when humanity has run out of options and through illness and dis-ease they will look to the esoteric and the ageless wisdom as the only true choice.

  6. To live an esoteric life, is to live a life of purpose. Knowing that you can bring God’s grace to earth, living the qualities of stillness, joy, harmony and love to the best of your ability.

  7. To live esoterically is to live connected to that part, which is our anchor, the part which knows truth and the part which honours and respects all – it’s not something lived en masses right now in our world despite the fact that it’s deeply missed by all of us and is our natural way of being.

    1. Living connected to our innermost is very beautiful for all, ‘This is the esoteric – a connection with the innermost heart we are all born with’.

  8. The esoteric is indeed the feeling and connection of a new baby. I have recently given birth – and the tenderness and wisdom he holds is incredible and a gift to others. No hurts, no judgement just a bundle of love.

      1. And by this proof of eliciting this quality in others it demonstrates that this tenderness and wisdom is true power.

  9. How oh how do we take something that is so commonplace in every child, and make it so exclusive and mysterious to us as adults? Yet it lies dormant within, just waiting for the touch to fire us up and remember what is each and every one’s birthright.

  10. We can’t help but melt when we feel the esoteric, as it reminds us of who we are under all the roles, beliefs, busyness and trying to be enough we lay over the top of it. Luckily for us it is eternal and can be reconnected to when we connect to and observe our body, so we become honest about how we are living and feeling. If it’s not with the delicateness and openness of a baby then we know we are not living all of who we are.

  11. To wear your innermost on your outermost is an act of total transparency and is the very reason why we fall in love with babies so quickly – they have no filter or barrier in place. Just bundles of pure love, joy, harmony, stillness and truth: the essence of who we truly are.

    1. Its a beautiful feeling when we get that total transparency from another. It allows the defenses to drop in ourselves and so we naturally shine back more of the same in ourselves if we choose it.

  12. The esoteric is not mysterious or hidden in any way, it is simply a connection to our essence, our innermost and living from this to the best of your ability, you will then feel how ‘normal’ this way of being truly is.

  13. What made our world? Why are we here? These are questions that we ask in our lives, some stay pondering the question, others find the question too big and just distract themselves away from needing to know the answer but all the while there is a little niggle that there must be more to this life. We are all from the same divine source and if we allowed ourselves to feel that more than focus on our differences we would have a very different world.

  14. ‘Why do we deny the grace of God on earth…?’ Perhaps because we have forgotten who we are, we choose to live in comfort or we just love to avoid responsibility for our choices. What do we need to remind the world that the esoteric is inside all of us? Role models from those who have realised the truth who can reflect back who we are – enter Serge Benhayon, Master of Masters, the ultimate role model of love, truth and humility.

  15. I have another explanation: people, that is a big part of humanity, try to crush the esoteric because in the end, it is the end of individualism. And that we will defend at all cost, even it means killing our fellow brothers that live a life that has no or very little self.

  16. The fact is we always live and breathe in the house of God, and by God’s grace we are, here to live and magnify his light through our Soul as the Son’s of God we are. Never are we not in a relationship with God, it is impossible to not be. It is only that we deny, resist and ignore our connection to our Divinity as such lining esoterically, so that we instead can indulge in individuality as such we lose our sense of our true way that is guided by the light of our Soul, our connection the who we innately are.

  17. The grace of God on earth – we are never left alone but only can leave ourselves, i.e. disconnecting from the esoteric that is our innermost nature. Thus even when we feel we are lost, it is in our power to come back and never are we dependent on anyone else.

  18. The esoteric is always there within every single one of us. It’s not meant to be difficult and all it takes to feel is a willingness to let go of the distractions we choose and connect within ourselves.

  19. In a world where nearly everything is keeping us disconnected from ourselves it is no wonder that the true meaning of the ‘esoteric’ is disturbing and thus needs to be disturbed by bastardising the meaning so that one will feel repelled rather than pulled towards it = the innermost of oneself.

  20. Choosing to surrender to the love of your inner-heart you know the truth of the esoteric. The mystery remains for those who are not aware of the boundless love of their own inner-heart.
