It becomes necessary, therefore, to state once for all: It is easy to become a Theosophist. Any person of average intellectual capacities, and a leaning toward the metaphysical; of pure, unselfish life, who finds more joy in helping his neighbor than in receiving help himself; one who is ever ready to ocultismo practico hpb his own pleasures for the sake of other people; and who loves Truth, Goodness and Wisdom for ocultismo practico hpb own sake, not for the benefit they may confer — is a Theosophist.

But it is quite another matter to put oneself upon the path which leads to the knowledge of what is good to do, as to the right discrimination of good from ocultismo practico hpb a path which also leads a man to that power through which he can do the good he desires, often without even ocultismo practico hpb lifting a finger.
Moreover, there ocultismo practico hpb one important fact with which the student should be made acquainted.
Namely, the enormous, almost limitless, responsibility assumed by the teacher for the sake of the pupil. From the Gurus of the East who teach openly or secretly, down to the few Kabalists in Western lands who undertake to teach the rudiments of the Sacred Science to their disciples — those western Hierophants being often themselves ignorant of the danger they incur — one and all of these "Teachers" are subject to the same inviolable law.

From the moment they begin really to teach, from the instant they confer any power — whether psychic, mental or ocultismo practico hpb — on their pupils, they take upon themselves all the sins of that pupil, in connection with the Occult Sciences, whether of omission or commission, until the moment when initiation makes the pupil a Master and responsible in his turn.
There is a weird and mystic religious law, greatly reverenced and acted upon in the Greek, half-forgotten ocultismo practico hpb the Roman Catholic, and absolutely extinct in the Protestant Church.
It dates from the earliest days of Christianity and has its basis in the law just stated, of which it was a symbol and an expression. This is the dogma of the absolute sacredness of the relation between the god-parents who stand sponsors for a child.
Thus it is clear why the "Teachers" are so reticent, and why "Chelas" are required to serve a seven years probation to prove ocultismo practico hpb fitness, ocultismo practico hpb develop the qualities necessary to the security of both Master and pupil.
Occultism is not magic. It is comparatively easy to learn the trick of spells and the methods of using ocultismo practico hpb subtler, but still material, forces of physical nature; the powers of the animal soul in man are soon awakened; the forces which his love, his hate, his passion, can call into operation, are readily developed.
But this is Black Magic — Sorcery. For it is the motive, and the motive alone, which makes any exercise of power become black, malignant, or white, beneficent Magic.
It is impossible to employ spiritual forces if there is the slightest tinge of selfishness remaining ocultismo practico hpb the operator.
For, unless the intention is entirely unalloyed, the spiritual will transform itself into the ocultismo practico hpb, act on the astral plane, and dire results may be produced by it.
The powers and forces of animal nature can equally be used by the selfish and revengeful, as by the unselfish and the all-forgiving; the powers and forces of spirit lend themselves only to the perfectly pure in heart — ocultismo practico hpb this is DIVINE MAGIC.

For let it be known that no such instruction can possibly be given unless these ocultismo practico hpb conditions are complied with, and rigorously carried out during the years of study.
This is a sine qua non. No man can swim unless he enters deep water. No bird can fly unless its wings are grown, and it has space before it and courage to trust itself to the air.
A man who will wield a two ocultismo practico hpb sword, must be a thorough master of the blunt weapon, if he would not injure himself — or what is worse — others, at the first attempt.
