Cultism Is the Beginners Level of
Human Existence

The word “cult” means, simply, a system of externals
(such as deity, or beliefs, rites, and ceremonies) related
to the worship of a any deified object, person, place,
event, etc. Therefore, all formally organized exoteric
religious institutions or communities are cults. Cults are
at the roots of all human cultures.

By extension, any organized gathering of people
associated with a common source of enthusiasm and commitment
may be called a cult. Therefore, “cultism” is associated not
only with religion, but politics, intellectual studies,
science, the “professions,” entertainment, sports, the news
media, animal and flower breeding societies!-nearly every
area of human endeavor tends to produce the centralizing
phenomenon or centripetal motion of cultism.

The negative tendency in cultism is the tendency to
forget that mere enthusiastic association with an object, an
idea, a person, or whatever, is basically a superficial or
“beginners” state of mind. All mere enthusiasm, or belief,
or ritualized consciousness is at the novice level of human
existence, and if it persists beyond its appropriate term,
it becomes an expression of either childish or adolescent
neurosis. (Such is true of individuals and also of human
groups or cultures.)

When participation in the “outer circle” of life is
prolonged, and the higher or esoteric culture (the “inner
circle” of life) does not begin, we see all the classical
signs of human failure. Human beings need their childhood
and even a kind of adolescence, but they must eventually
“put away childish things” and enter into the mature and
higher domain of human possibility.

This transition to human maturity requires profound and
self-critical understanding on the part of the individual.
And if such a crisis of understanding does not characterize
the greatest number of human beings alive at any one time,
the social order of mankind tends to be more or less
childish and adolescent, expressing all kinds of irrational
dependencies and equally irrational needs for ambivalent

But this is precisely the situation in the world at the
present time. Everyone is clinging to the “outer circle” of
human existence. The popular religious, scientific,
political, and other cultural and social characteristics of
our time are all generally immature, aberrated,
exclusivistic, and bereft of the higher Wisdom of true
evolutionary and spiritual acculturation.

In the domain of religion, the cults are almost
invariably founded on irrational and archaic beliefs, and
many cults claim exclusive possession of the absolute
Revelation or degree of Truth. But exoteric religion is not
in possession of the highest Truth in any case. Exoteric
religion is only the “outer circle” of Truth.

The childish neurosis that overcomes exoteric cultism is
just this clinging to superficial levels of understanding
(or even mere belief, without much understanding), coupled
with a righteous sense of exclusive possession of Truth. And
this frame of mind is in evidence in every area of human
occupation at the present time. It characterizes the cults
of science and politics just as much as it does the cults of
conventional religion.

It is time for everyone to awaken from the spell of
childish, subhuman, self-possessed, subjective,
intellectual, and lower physical obsession. It is time to
grow up! The Truth can become obvious to our understanding,
and the cultural situation of mankind can become harmonious
and benign. It is a matter of serious consideration of the
higher Wisdom of Life as it is communicated and demonstrated
by true human Adepts. It is a matter of entering into the
yet hidden or esoteric domain of awakened intelligence,
self-restraint, acceptance of Life-positive habits of
physical, emotional, and mental activity, and conversion
from the separative and self-possessed disposition to the
truly ecstatic moral and spiritual disposition of
self-transcending Love-Communion with the Life-Principle and
Transcendental Reality of the World-Process. That Way, and
only that universally true Way, permits the child to grow
into maturity. That Way is the evolutionary Way that is
hidden or natively built into the psycho-physical structures
of Man.

The “problem” of cultism is prolonged exotericism, which
produces fanaticism, delusion, and exclusivism. Freedom from
false cultism depends on human growth, from the exoteric (or
superficial levels of understanding) to the esoteric (or
higher, evolutionary, and transcendental levels of
understanding). Exoteric religion must become nothing more
than a means of preparation for higher spiritual and
evolutionary acculturation.

Therefore, every religion must be submitted to the
universal Truth and the universal Wisdom of Adepts who have
fulfilled the higher Way through actual practice of it.
Conventional religions must abandon all things superficial
and exclusively true, and they must submit to all that
belongs to the universal, profound, and transcendental

Likewise, all other popular cults-such as the cult of
scientific materialism-must abandon the irrational
exclusivism of their preferences and see that Wisdom is
higher than knowledge.

Everyone, in every field of human endeavor or commitment,
must be awakened to a higher intuition, and to a critical
understanding of all the superficialities of conventional
and popular human awareness.
