    Post The Circuit of Force in Applied Magic by Dion Fortune

    What are your thoughts on this chapter? Especially what follows after Fortune states, "Much of what I have had to say is so profoundly esoteric and so immediately practical that I have been obliged to adhere to the ancient method of myth and metaphor. These things are not for the profane, who would either misunderstand them or abuse them. Those who have eyes to see can read between the lines."

    She goes on to "try to sum up the principles involved and bring the whole concept to a singe focus;..." The subject she is writing about is Manifestation... Fortune says she is "trying to show the practical implications of the doctrine of Manifestation by means of the Pairs of Opposites."

    I have just read this for the first time, so i want to let my thoughts steep for awhile before i mention them here. In the mean time i'd like to know your thoughts, ideas, interpretations, etc.

    Thanks in advance

    I havent read that book fully for some time but like to dip into it. I find Fortunes works quite informative.

    I guess what she is doing is offering the method for those who can really use it beneficially rather than openly giving it to people who might just abuse it. Even Jesus taught parables to his followers but told his discpiles in clear speech.

    That's exact;y what esoteric means. Exoteric is with the eye, esoteric is with the heart, a parable indeed.
