I would like to open a discussion regarding the concept of an Adept and its required preparation in an esoteric school settings like the Rosicrucian orders, not only AMORC but other Rosicrucian schools or orders as well.

I Have Walked on Many Paths...
I have walked many paths, like Eastern and Western forms of mysticism and practice.
Note: This is not a work of fiction but a deep research into the subject supported by many years of study and practices and directed to sincere students of the Rosicrucian Traditions.

I have been studying the TMO as well as the ORT and others, and I agree that the main task of the Adept is to contact their Higher Self, or Inner Self. Because only through the HS's guidance we are sure to be on the Path of Light. I can say that for myself, as my basic contact was made long ago and after that what I have done is improving our communication...
The guidance is going well and that is the reason why what I have learnt through readings is not enough anymore. What I am seek now is the direct knowledge, and after many sojourns into different initiatory paths I have a wider perspective of the teachings I have received and their aims.
However, we need some experience to compare, to detach ourselves from our own perspective to realize the big picture. And that what's happen to me when I started my studies in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Which is much closer to the core of CR+C teachings including and integrating the trice greatest sciences of the old - Hermetic Alchemy, Hermetic Astrology and Theurgy (High Magic Ritual), that Order expands subjects only touched by other organizations' teachings opening up new horizons for the work of the Adept and revealing the direct knowledge of the high dimensions of being to the seeker.
That's why, when I review my AMORC monographs, I can feel the wonderful insights into the Cosmic realms, but I also realize that there is so much to explore and learn, much more to understand about our Divine Nature. It is true that the Master Monograph itself does not do the job for us. Is up to each one of us to go deep inside, go beyond the letter, to explore and learn by direct experience. Anyway, the sign posts help a lot!
The entire Rosicrucian Tradition is recorded in a symbolic matrix waiting for the Adept to unravel its secrets. The Symbol, as Carl Jung have said, is the doorway to our outer self to contact our Inner Self and them open up the Portals of the multiverse. So my understanding is that an esoteric school should provide those signposts to help the student along the Path and not engage in fruitless philosophical (merely intellectual) digressions just to keep us bound to an affiliation program. The OSB, the Inner Order of the Ancient and Mystical Ordo Rosae Crucis should be the school of the Adepti, delivering higher teachings to guide and boost our spiritual development.
May be the day you reach your Inner Silence and focus your mind into a particular esoteric symbol opening yourself up to its revelations, you will know what I mean...
