The Divine becomes human; the human reconnects with the Divine, within Christ. Whoever treads the path of Initiation—whoever recognizes or fails to recognize the Christ—knows, at a given moment on the path, that there is no Initiation without such a teacher. It is not the recognition of the name that matters, but the recognition of the force. The spiritual practitioner must overcome the interminable series of esoteric mirages to realize that initiation has only one source, the Christ—certainly not the mystical or gnostic Christ or that of religion, but the cosmic Christ, the metaphysical principle of absolute individuality and freedom. In the living moment of thinking, the “I” (true self) begins to experi-ence the Light of the World, which has overcome the separation. This is the act of freedom—the ultimate sense of dialectical freedom.

In this powerful guidebook, Massimo Scaligero describes in detail the esoteric path of thinking, which allows us to reach beyond our bondage to sensory perception and the physical view of reality, to realize our true cosmic connection with the Logos, the living Christ.

Originally published in Italian as Il Logos e i nuovi misteri (Rome: Teseo, 1973).

Massimo Scaligero

Massimo Scaligero (1906–1980) was born Antonio Scabelloni in Veroli (Frosinone), Italy. He was a contemporary Italian spiritual master who drank deeply from both Western and Eastern traditions. By direct experience, he was equally at home with Western philosophy and psychology, Western esotericism (Rosicrucianism, Templarism, and Anthroposophy) and Eastern meditative practices (Zen and Tibetan Buddhism). He was the author of numerous books, including (in Italian, untranslated): The Way of the Solar Will; Immortal Love; Yoga, Meditation, Magic; From Yoga to the Rose Cross; Practical Manual of Meditation; The Logos and the New Mysteries; Psychotherapy; Techniques of Inner Concentration; Healing with Thinking; Meditation and Miracles; Thinking as Antimaterialism; Western Kundalini; Isis Sophia; and Zen and Logos.
