“The Path to Immortality is hard, and only a few find it. The rest await the Great Day when the wheels of the universe shall be stopped and the immortal sparks shall escape from the sheaths of substance. Woe unto those who wait, for they must return again, unconscious and unknowing, to the seed ground of stars, and await a new beginning. Those who are saved by the light of the mystery which I have revealed unto you, O Hermes, and which I now bid you to establish among men, shall return again to the father who dwelleth in the White Light, and shall deliver themselves up to the Light and shall be absorbed into the Light, and in the Light they shall becomes Powers in God. This is the way of Good and is revealed only to them that have wisdom.
“Blessed art thou, O Son of Light, to whom of all men, I, Poimandres, the Light of the world, have revealed myself. I order you to go forth, to become as a guide to those who wander in darkness, that all men within who dwells the spirit of My Mind (The Universal Mind) may be saved by My Mind in you, which shall call forth My Mind in them. Establish my Mysteries and they shall not fail from the earth.” ~Manly P. Hall

The basic idea of such a philosophy is that we need to make no effort whatsoever to become an immortal. If that were true, the great mystery schools of the past would never have existed. Why be moral, why be loving, why be kind, if everyone will achieve immortality anyway? But as already said, this is simply not true.
In recent decades, television has even made a joke of the concept of immortals. They created various shows about immortals that are, in fact, not immortal at all. They might live for several hundred years, or they might live for an indefinite period of time provided certain things don’t occur that can kill them.
