"In every conclusive kind of meanings she manages to define the spiritual one" - Review on Klairi Lykiardopoulou's book "...and the shadows became light"

Quite a few points are noteworthy in this narration. At first the interchanging alterations which constantly adapt to the proportionate periods and the combinations which as a family as well as a person, the leading person is called upon to adjust, while in parallel she feels the need for inner introspection, who ceaselessly seeks deeper spiritual fields, always under the supervision of the Master.


It is also noticeable that she describes, per decades approximately, the differentiations of ideas and familiar habits of people and situations. And in those references criteria and standpoint are correct. That is, she outlines with caution, directness of judgement, world and even deductive. I could say a social, historical and literary portrayal which is also accurate.


As for the lay-out of her material which constantly moves upwards to reach the initiation meditative, inner and spiritual stages and this climax is successful although embossed but this is how it should be. Because the word of reason is given but its impression and acceptance is something completely different. Long time has been since she was born in 1931 until today. In every conclusive kind of meanings she manages to define the spiritual one, despite the composition of each period.


I notice that the effort of changes is again renewed and particularly reinforced by her personal experience, fact and point which convinces more if ther is an inner indication for quest.


The Master's role always determinative she will tell us in the chapter "The beginning of the discipleship" page 71 "Why is it necessary for disciples to exist if the work is always done by Masters" was plausible to ask...


"Because both are needed for the work's realization" he answered to me. "The Master has the knowledge, which he transfers to the disciples to the degree that they are ready for. The disxciples start to imitate the Master at ehichever level they are capable of doing it and their turn, through their way of life show to other people how they can also improve their own life".


So, the writer studied to the "Synthetic teaching" which as she notes (page 71) "My work was the steadiness in the position of discipleship and trust to the spiritual field and I was decided to realize it."


I will refer to one more point which I consider crucial because it is a turning point in the spiritual - of this kind - life since each theory is documented with an example. Chapter "Life Example" page 83: "I was eager to comprehend the new world which has opened before me and inside me, this substantial dimention, the realization which was hidding behind the rationalism through which we have learned to function and comprehend everything around us. And the teaching was quenching my thirst..."


Finally, all thoughts are spread normally without externities are not tiresome and mainly incomprehensible. Naturally they are addressed to them who are apprehensive, are not spiritually settled down and look forward to the ascention and evolution of the general human being.
