The Inward Path of spiritualism is essentially the same wherever it originated and needs transforming not rejection
Which came first the Hindu Chakra Correspondence Chart or the Kabbalistic Tree of Life? The Tree of life may have come to the Jewish people via the Ancient Egyptians, but they might have gotten it via the Indian Vedas or pre-Vedas and the Chakras, which arrived at the beginning of the Egyptian dynasties as a result of invasions from Eurasia. That at least is the hypothesis.
The point here is that like all Traditionalism this is only defining the Inward Path of spiritualism which is essentially the same wherever it originated. That is, it is abstract definitions of physical experiences as a result of ascetic discipline of the body to experience what was defined as the God or Father Within, which were not considered a material or physical experience but in reality are a material and physical experience, and not immaterial.
This insight may at first seem to reject Traditionalism but it does not have to if it sees these ascetic experiences as preliminary, or as the first human inner experiences and definitions (only) of God that then lead to seeing the real Godhood which is reached through material and supermaterial evolution. This explains the origin of the Twofold Path of theological materialism and the coming Theoevolutionary Church...Long-lasting civilizations need to be grounded in religion but seem doomed without this supermaterial transformation.
