A description of the experience
Rudolf Steiner – How to Know Higher Worlds
If the pupil has acquired these faculties to a certain extent, he is then mature enough to learn the true names of things, and these names are the key to higher knowledge. For Initiation consists in learning to call the things of the world by the names they bear in the spirit of their divine Originators.
In these names their mysteries lie. The Initiates speak a language different from that of those who are not initiated because they designate created things by the very names which created them.
