I hope you instructors are staying safe from the corona-virus and far from the riots.

Could you name a few French initiates for me? I feel like almost 90% of the culture I've been engaging with for quite some time has been German, with a pinch of English. There is still more for me to discover there, but I know I have some French ancestry and would like to explore some of their culture if possible. I do not necessary want to learn more about St. Joan of Arc, Voltaire, or Victor Hugo; Although, I wouldn't bet the last too were initiates, but just in case they were. Was Debussy an initiate? I don't really get that vibe, but what do I know? Thanks. Take care.

Debussy was a great composer, but I haven’t verified if he was an initiate. However, Bizet, Berlioz, and Gounod were.

See Eliphas Levi, who was French, yet who made some errors in his initiatic works that you can read about from Samael Aun Weor.

Don’t forget Victor Hugo, whom Samael Aun Weor referred to as “the great humanist initiate” in The Perfect Matrimony.

For thirty years I sought God. But when I looked carefully I found that in reality God was the seeker and I the sought. -Bayazid al-Bastami

"Eliphas Levi commits the mistake of commenting about an apocryphal document of Enoch, and falsely judging the twenty Egregores who descended upon Ardis, which is the top of the Mount Armon and dogmatically condemning them by qualifying them as demons...” —Samael Aun Weor, The Aquarian Message

1. “For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.” —Zechariah 10:2

2. We must make a differentiation between diviners and prophets.

3. Eliphas Levi states the following: “Diviner comes from the words divinaris, divinus, which signifies to perform the ‘divine’.” Nevertheless, the Abbot Alphonse Louis Constant did not know that the word diviner is “adivino” in Spanish. The letter “a” that precedes the word means “without.”

4. Spanish grammar says that the “a” is a preposition that indicates a separation, a disconnection. For example, theos means God, but if we place the letter “a” before it, then we form the word atheos, meaning atheist. The word atheist signifies a person who disbelieves in God. So then, adivino (diviner) precisely represents the contrary of what is divine, in other words, the diabolic. For instance, apolitical signifies “without political attitudes, content or bias.” —Samael Aun Weor, Igneous Rose

Thanks ;)
