Ancient Wisdom is timeless. Founders of all great religions have
taught the ageless aspects of its knowledge. This wisdom is ancient
and yet very modern - in tune with today's search for a world-view
to integrate the overwhelming burst of knowledge in present times.
Furthermore, new developments in science have corroborated many
of the key ideas that are basic to this philosophy.
There are no short cuts to solve difficult and complex problems.
But there is a long-range view of eventual fulfillment for all people,
given out in the teachings of Ancient Wisdom. Its concepts re-establish
purpose and meaning in the universe and in us and give one a firm
foundation on which to build one's life - the deep, partially conscious
urge within each person to move on, to progress, to realize one's
potential. Understanding the knowledge given out by Ancient Wisdom
we comprehend more of ourselves, the essential truths of timeless
ideas and their directive power in our life.
In all ages, and all lands,
the belief has existed that a divine degree of knowledge is possible
to human beings under certain conditions; and, as a corollary to
this, the conviction has dwelt in the hearts of people that living
sages exist who possess this knowledge. In ancient days, some of
this higher knowledge was taught in the Mystery-Schools, traces
of which have been found among all the nations of the earth. In
more modern days, its existence has been suspected by intuitive
thinkers, who have called it by various names, such as the
Wisdom-Religion or the Esoteric-Philosophy.
