He had to learn to cease fighting and to be constructive in hi* nature instead ; not to destroy, but to build. He had to learn to discriminate between the things that were lasting and those that were of fleeting nature. He had to learn diapassion, and. not be torn about by the. emotions of the man of average development. Control of body and of mind vrv.ro two more lessons set him, and he had to become tolerant in hie nature towards all creation. Thete lesjpns learned to some extent, he then was put through jiia lir.,t initiation, and on the path of initiation he had to learn to cast all doubt and •nperstition from him, and had to awaken the hidden, powers within, so that he became master of tho lower worlds—the physical, emotional, and thought worlds. Farther, he had to root out of bis nature the 4ewr© for life in form, and not cling to .lower manifestation. At the last #te/p lit fceeaiße a SJrater, a perfected hnpi«WUefore him wsire several paths of service ip choose between.
