Terrestrial Initiation and Cosmic Hierarchy

Terrestrial Initiation and Cosmic Hierarchy

As featured on Aetherius Radio Live.

Have you ever wondered about the robes and rituals in The Aetherius Society? Or about the blending of Eastern practices and Western traditions that you find in our Services? They’re great questions and you’d certainly not be alone!

In this month’s episode of Aetherius Radio Live, hosts Richard Lawrence – a Senior Bishop in The Aetherius Churches, and Chrissie Blaze – a Priest in The Aetherius Churches, talk in depth about the answers to these common questions and more, including:

– The significance of the different colored robes worn by people at our Services
– Why we have Priests and Bishops
– The significance of the Aetherius Society symbol
– The reasons why we have a formal hierarchy in the Society
– Why we have a prominent cross in our places of worship
– Why we have a mix of Eastern and Western traditions

Note: There was some technical trouble in the recording of this show and some of Chrissie’s audio was lost, so it is a little shorter than usual.

    The lineage of every religious tradition is valid to it’s adherents. God (The Source) honours all human endeavours that raises human consciousness regardless of how we perceive adherents of that group/endeavour. Darkness can become Divinity, sinners can become saints, etc.

    One size does not fit all. Our spiralling consciousness are both individual and collective both at the same time and does not necessarily require adherence to a particular group, religion, etc but to help the individual or group to raise their awareness and consciousness to greater levels.

    However, on the issues of interplanetary communications and guidance from our senior brethrens, I completely, whole-hearthly agree with the AETHERIUS SOCIETY!
