schools. The two attributes of a Doctor are his hat

figure, on the right of the drawing, and the left of the Doctor, is
wiser by experience. He is travelled or a hermit. He carries a big
stick and a lotha.
He has a very big head and is very old, for he has spent so which
time listening, seeing, studying the natural during his road
pilgrimages, but he has never learned in the schools or from books.
On the left of
the drawing and the right of the Doctor, is the third figure wiser by
the synthesis of the two.
He has studied in the Schools but not this only. He is also a member
of the Schools of Wisdom, of the Colleges of Initiation. The Symbol
in the hand is a little child,
but prematurely old. Still, it is a very young child, but it looks
old, for, with all the reincarnations which it has had before it is
very old. This is a Symbol of the
Initiation. This third man, this third
wiser, is the wiser by Initiation, College and University, but he
also has a knowledge of the Secret Esoteric. He is learned in both
the official way and in the occult way. He has also made an effort
for his own experience.
are THREE possibilities of WISDOM:
the Doctor has the technical word. He can teach something without
knowing what he teaches, but this is all. For his is book knowledge,
limited to the study course prescribed. He just knows the official
side. He has just studied what the man before him learned, and is
therefore very limited in REALITY. This is the product of the
Schools of today.
Wiser can teach from experience, but cannot convince or convert. A
University Degree does not matter, does not mean anything.
and experiment by the self is the life.
He has travelled and thinks he knows all. But of what use is his
experience if he is untrained. He does not really KNOW his subject.

Then thirdly, he becomes a student of the School of Initiation, of
the School of Wisdom. It is this Synthesis of the two, which gives a
possibility to teach on the people. Before
this stage is reached the self is not prepared.
Therefore, Initiation means not
only the Degree of Ceremony, but also the day you receive
confirmation from the state or condition where you were.
In this epoch,
we need Reason and Feeling,
Analysis and Revelation.
These two give, in combination,
the third Wiser with the Child… ie he is not alone; he has
made a transmutation from one to the other.
Thus the first
the second has the stick

which will GROW.
