By Alejandro Ortiz

De los angeles Introducción:

Dediqué más de 20 años de mi vida a las órdenes esotéricas y fraternales. Por un lado fue una gran pérdida de tiempo. Sólo descubrí una falsa espiritualidad y un ausente sentido de hermandad.
Por otro lado, esos 20 años me dieron dos grandes lecciones. los angeles primera, estuve expuesto en primera fila a las enseñanzas, dogmas y ceremonias de estas órdenes esotéricas y fraternales. Ya no hay secreto que no haya sido develado. Ya que nunca los hubo. los angeles segunda gran lección, fue ese gran vistazo a l. a. mentalidad de las personas que habitan en esas órdenes esotéricas y fraternales. Sus secretos, miedos y motivaciones me fueron revelados.
Esta experiencia lo único que ha logrado es alejarme de esas órdenes esotéricas y fraternales... a compadecerme de esas personas que están en ellas… a despreciar a esos líderes y pseudo intelectuales que se aprovechan de sus matrículas… y a tener una mente crítica ante todos los dogmas psicóticos y mentiras que se desarrollan y se perpetúan en esas órdenes.
