Summary: The “Way” refers to the path of eternal progression, also called the “Hodos
Alea”. A prominent feature of the Way entails a spirit child incarnating multiple
times on a mortal world, wherein he or she will have the opportunity to make choices
amidst a vast spectrum of opposition. During this process, innocence is replaced
by wisdom and a deeper knowledge of good and evil.
The Book of Pearls makes reference to the “hidden Way”, an internal path of wisdom
and joy (P:8:7), which concept aligns closely what what is referred to in traditional
Chinese religion and philosophy as the “Tao”.
This is the mystery born of Mystery
Endless and filled with joy,
And before its gates, if you would stand,
To touch with eager heart,
In you shall be found the hidden Way | Rich in understanding.
