THE SECRET DOCTRINE

VOLUME 3

by H.P.Blavatsky
OCCULTISM

As for what thou hearest others say, who persuade the many that the soul when once freed from the body neither suffers.... evil nor is conscious, I know that thou art better grounded in the doctrines received by us from our ancestors and in the sacred orgies of Dionysus than to believe them; for the mystic symbols are well known to us who belong to the Brotherhood.

Plutarch

The problem of life is man. Magic, or rather Wisdom, is the evolved knowledge of the potencies of man's interior being, which forces are divine emanations, as intuition is the perception of their origin, and initiation our induction into that knowledge ... We begin with instinct; the end is omniscience.
