Self-Sealed Inner Texts
Nov 07, 2006 04:32 AM
You are right, in my view. I myself have been trying to explain this here for some time now. In the discussions about the "Esoteric Papers of HPB", for instance.
How many people, in another example, did understand in fact much of "The Secret Doctrine"? Perhaps not half of its readers did.
How many of the internet readers of HPB can open in their own Selves the seal which would allow them to understand what they are looking at?
And, can each of us do that? In what degree?
Yes, esoteric texts are, so to say, 'self-sealed'.
