Preparation for Initiation 15
The arrogant and proud clairvoyants slander their fellowmen and fill the world with tears. This is because the turbid waters of a swellheaded spirituality—that is, a mind filled with reasoning, pride, preconceptions, social prejudices, platitudes, anger, egotism, etc.—can only reflect the tenebrous images of the abyss.
The clairvoyant’s mind has to be as serene as a lake from Nirvana so that the entire panorama of the universe can be reflected upon that most immaculate lake.
The silhouettes of trees are reflected upon the surface of the waters, but inverted. Similarly, every Master of glory has also his shadow in the abyss.

Many Rosicrucian, Theosophist, etc., devotees do not know how to live, and indeed the only thing we need to know is how to live. Goethe said, “Every theory is gray, and only the tree of the golden fruits of life is green.”
The White Lodge has informed us that many Gnostic devotees (who are consciously or unconsciously in black magic) will take our statements in this book as too harsh. Thus, this will be the cause for them to desert Gnosis and they will react by slandering us. These deserters will spread their defamatory gossip against us.

Esoteric discipline is indeed remarkable. Some fanatic devotees of the spiritualism of Aquarius commit the most horrible crimes within their mind, yet if they suspect something bad of someone else, they cynically attribute these feelings as warnings from their Innermost. Thus, this is how they slander people and thereafter they say, “My Innermost tells me everything.” When they get enraged, they shout, “I am not angry! What I feel are strong intuitive impulses of my Innermost.” Thus, they attribute every evil idea, every evil thought, as impulses from their Inner God.
Such people confuse intuition with malice, and the voice of the silence with the voice of Satan. We Gnostics state the voice of the silence never utters atrocities, because it is perfect, whereas the voice of Satan always utters perversities.

Hypocritical pharisees sit on Christ’s seat.
“And if the blind lead the blind, all shall fall into the abyss.” - Matthew 15:14
We knew a hypocritical pharisee who rejected the sacred wine because the grape juice had fermented. Someone hosted him in his home and he indignantly fled from this house because the owners of the house ate meat. That perverse pharisee was a follower of another horrible impostor, a black magician.

The unconscious state of many Theosophist, Rosicrucian and Aquarian Spiritualists is shameful; it grieves us to see them discussing and arguing about things of which they have no cognizance. They talk about karma, yet they have never conversed with a Master of karma. They intellectually discuss the cosmos, yet they do not know how to consciously travel in the Astral Body. They have never personally conversed with an Angel. They only argue because they have read; that is all. Nevertheless, the most critical matter about this is that they believe that they know.
Wretched people... how swollen with pride they are… they are worthy of pity.
