“Esoteric is impossible to define. Esoteric is simply not accessible by the usual mind. It is an open secret, because there are no eyes to see, no ears to hear. Everything is ensconced within the rational degeneration of reason, wherein we are unable to see that all of this that appears to be – the world, the universe – is the projection that is our own radiance. There is no universal discourse wherein we can speak to the usual man or woman. The esoteric requires an unfathomable new form of communication, where we are dealing with the essence of things and not the mere appearance of things. The esoteric essence of all phenomena is apparent to synthesis intelligence, which completely confounds the cerebral intelligence of the usual man or woman. Everything is seen, apparently, but everything remains shrouded in an unfathomable mystery. We are unable to merely pull aside a curtain of obscurity. This cerebral mind is at war with the heart of Truth. For the heart, the world of the cerebral mind does not exist. For the cerebral mind the world of the heart does not exist. Hence the world of the cerebral mind is the fulfilment of the Hermes Prophecy, where those who stand as the heart are condemned as madmen and fools and all that is abroad in the land is an ever-descending evil. Nevertheless there will come a time when the heart’s Truth is the master of this domain”.
