A definition of Spiritual Path by Roberto Assagioli in Transpersonal Development.
The eleventh group of symbols covers that of the way, path or pilgrimage. This too has always been a universal metaphor. Esoteric tradition speaks about the ‘path of the disciple’ and about the way of initiation, with its various ‘doors’. Religions refer to the ‘mystical way’.
The symbol of pilgrimage has been and is still often used in a physical, external sense, in the form of pilgrimages to various ‘holy places’. Dante’s journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise has been called a pilgrimage. One also remembers Bunyan’s Pilgrims Progress.« Back to Glossary Index
