For thousands of years human civilizations have used Initiations or rites of passages as a way to transform their young males into men. The idea being that having them experience something that takes them far outside their comfort zone long enough to teach certain truths about reality that can only be understood through experience.

Western Civilization has largely abandoned this tradition, and partly as a result we have a lot man-boys who never completely mature psychologically or spiritually. Fr

Explores the concept of non-duality prevalent in many Eastern philosophies. While it was an interesting read overall, there were too many leaps of logic that were unsubstantiated. Lomas' writing style is at times rigid and dry. By contrast, Manly Hall explores many of the same topics in The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, which is better written, more colorful in description, and a more enjoyable read.

clear, insightful, and high minded, Lomas' work not only opens the initiate up to great depths (heights) of pursuing that Bright Morning Star, he allows the initiative of the reader to follow the path of consciousness further with reference points, if one is keen enough to continue. recommended for all Masters, new and old.
