From the perspective of the ancient Essenes, every human on the earth is an initiate in the Mystery School that we call Life. Whether they are conscious of it or not, every human will experience in the presence of others mirrors of themselves in that moment. If we have the wisdom to recognize those mirrors, we may accelerate the evolution of emotion and understanding.
What the Essenes said was that for us to know and master ourselves in this world, we will see one or some combination of mirrored patterns in others. The seven mirrors are progressively more and more subtle. Back in the '70s, we heard about the first mirror, of who you are in the moment. The notion was that if you find yourself around individuals who are angry or dishonest, they are showing you your dishonesty or anger. Sometimes the mirrors would apply, but sometimes they wouldn't. We had discovered the first mirror, but had yet to see the other mirrors, such as the second mirror, which reflects what we judge in the moment.
This is tremendously powerful but very subtle. The ancient Essenes had a very sophisticated understanding of interpersonal human relationships and the role of emotion in those relationships. It's the role of emotion that we have carefully sifted out of our Western experience up until very recently. Now, as we go back into these texts, we see that it is emotion that proves the power and, when coupled with logic, true magic and miracles occur.
Understanding our universal connection, defeats all suffering. "The tradition I belong to says there are only four or five reasons that human beings suffer. First is, they don't know who they are. Secondly, they grasp and cling to that which is impermanent, and therefore illusory. The third is, they recoil and run away from and are afraid of that which is impermanent and illusory. The fourth is, that they identify themselves with their skin-encapsulated egos – which are total frauds. And the fifth is, they're afraid of death. And, in fact, all these five causes of suffering are contained in the first cause. You don't know who you are. If you find out who you are, it will be a ticket to freedom."
