Lesson 7 covered the Esoteric Tradition and was Part 3. The elements covered were Theosophy which had four sections covering Angelophany, Celestial Hierarchy, Theophanic Nature and Spiritual Symbolism. The next element was Hermeticism and the last element was Alchemy.

The lesson asked what parts of the belief system did we resonate with. From reading the lesson I would say that I would go with Theosophy where it discussed the “paracletic” dimension of Christianity. It mentioned that Theosophers live in a world where the miraculous is possible. I do believe in miracles so this would be the element that I could relate to.

Also throughout my life I have heard to the age old stories of alchemy with trying to obtain gold from other metals.
