Some of the most fervent materialists, realizing they can make use of telepathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, dowsing and psychometry to serve their own interests, start exploring that whole area, which they call ‘para-psychology’. If it can give them powers and allow them to make money, they will adopt any number of theories they have previously considered nonsense. So they take on board any knowledge from Initiatic Science that can serve their purposes and leave aside any that doesn’t bring in profit. But to make use of initiatic truths as a means of improving one’s affairs or gaining ascendency over others is highly immoral, and those who do so will be punished by divine justice. Initiatic knowledge should only be used to aid and comfort others and to spread light and peace in the world. Those who use it in this way will have their names written in the book of life and receive the blessings of heaven.
