The accountBethlehem, 75:significance of this number, and its relation to initiation: "The accomplishment of the age ofBethlehem, 75:signifies a full period of evolution when an initiation was undergone by the Christ-soul.

The new birth is as much a natural eventBethlehem, 83:and the hidden Christ Child is born at the first initiation. This truth Dr. Inge touches upon inBethlehem, 83:to Calvary - Chapter Three - The Second Initiation - The Baptism in Jordan CHAPTER THREE The SecondBethlehem, 83:- The Baptism in Jordan CHAPTER THREE The Second Initiation - The Baptism in Jordan KEY THOUGHT "ItBethlehem, 87:Will, by W. H. Sheldon, p. 130. The first initiation has taken place. Christ has been born inBethlehem, 87:which it is essential should preface the second initiation. The baptism of John was the symbol ofBethlehem, 89:image of God." (Gen., I, 26.) [89] At the second initiation Christ stood before God, the Initiator,Bethlehem, 91:to Calvary - Chapter Three - The Second Initiation - The Baptism in Jordan That paganism knows noBethlehem, 93:light and of being. Through the process of that initiation we became citizens of the kingdom of GodBethlehem, 94:to Calvary - Chapter Three - The Second Initiation - The Baptism in Jordan We speak much of theBethlehem, 95:John the Baptist, and passes through the second initiation, that of purification in the waters ofBethlehem, 96:to the world His purity and His power. The third initiation, that of the Transfiguration, testifiedBethlehem, 96:Him, and the intervening service. In the fourth initiation, He demonstrated this integration notBethlehem, 96:to Calvary - Chapter Three - The Second Initiation - The Baptism in Jordan II. "Then cometh JesusBethlehem, 96:these simple words we are told the story of this initiation. The keynote is purification, and itBethlehem, 97:may succeed in leading them to the portal of initiation. There is also to be found in this episodeBethlehem, 98:like prior to this use. Christ, in this great initiation, entered into the stream, and the watersBethlehem, 98:and the waters passed over Him. In India this initiation is called that of "entering the stream,"Bethlehem, 98:physical and psychic purity. In considering this initiation we must remember that two kinds ofBethlehem, 98:to Calvary - Chapter Three - The Second Initiation - The Baptism in Jordan In the evolution of theBethlehem, 99:of Jesus, for few are ready yet for the second initiation. It is preparatory to that final baptism,Bethlehem, 100:inner consecration, He was ready for the next initiation. This was taken in the river Jordan.Bethlehem, 100:determining factor with most people. The first initiation symbolizes the dedication of the physicalBethlehem, 100:the physical plane life to the soul. The second initiation stands for the demonstrated control andBethlehem, 100:of God, which is consummated at the third initiation. Through the correct use of the mind, theBethlehem, 100:pairs of opposites. We pass through the Birth initiation somewhat unconsciously. The fullBethlehem, 100:from that time on nothing will be the same. This initiation marked a tremendous change in the lifeBethlehem, 101:it occurs when we are fitted to take the second initiation. Our desire-life is then confronted withBethlehem, 101:purification brought its reward. It was at this initiation that God Himself proclaimed His Son toBethlehem, 101:be the One in Whom He was "well pleased." Every initiation is simply a recognition. It is a falseBethlehem, 101:of the mysteries and of esotericism, that initiation connotes a mysterious ceremony wherein,Bethlehem, 101:the medium of the initiator and the rod of initiation, conditions are definitely changed in theBethlehem, 101:for ever after he is altered and different. An initiation takes place whenever a man becomes,Bethlehem, 101:recognized by his peers, and he is admitted to initiation.
