How many older people do you know that end their lives bitter and frustrated. To be able to be happy and move through life with wisdom, understanding, gratitude and love while still achieving success in all respects is what I have started to develop in my work in Hermetic Philosophy.
Words cannot do justice to what I have gotten from the Dario Salas Institute of Hermetic Philosophy. I can only relate it through feelings. No value can be placed on the magic that has occurred inside myself through practicing these teachings.
I am talking about real experiences that I often have and the other members of this School have as a result of working on themselves. These are experiences that come from cultivating all the virtues that human beings possess. These virtues I had inside myself but I had to discover them. I had to move through all my insecurities, anger, laziness, envy, vanity, narcissism, selfishness, greed, dishonesty and above all fear. Behind all these faults lie our virtues. The value of virtues can only be experienced.
When I was absorbed in all these faults and dominated by them, I was so blinded, so weighed down. Joy was so fleeting and needed to be fed constantly from the outside. Now I feed myself. I cannot do it all the time and I still have much more work to do. But I know I have something that transcends any amount of money, prestige, flattery, or any appetite. It is a feeling of happiness, of profound appreciation for everyone and everything, a profound thankfulness and love.
This feeling cannot be captured in words. It can only be experienced. I find it amazing to see how many years people work in search of this kind of feeling outside of themselves through money, power, prestige etc. How many people do you know that seem to have it all and yet seem so unhappy? How many older people do you know that end their lives bitter and frustrated. To be able to be happy and move through life with wisdom, understanding, gratitude and love while still achieving success in all respects is what I have started to develop in my work in Hermetic Philosophy. There are not many places that I know that one can learn to have these things. Thankfully, I found one.
