Excerpt from Of a Novitiate He then determined to travel to the land of mysteries and search out in Egypt a magician who would conjure up for him a spirit, thinking thus to secure satisfactory evidence of the immortality of the soul, but a friendly philosopher withheld him from thus seeking the truth by the practice of' 'the unlawful art, fearing that he might never again enjoy peace of mind. Socrates, the philosopher, and greatest sage the world has ever known, avowed his despair ofever discovering a solution by the aid of reason's light alone, while he whispered a hope that some messenger might come to earth who might bring some light on the immortality of the soul. Long years after, there appeared one greater than Socrates, who proclaimed himself a Messenger of Life and Immortality, but the same scorri that de stroyed the philosopher rejected the Christ, and the great majority of mankind are waiting, like Clement of old, to hear the voice of some loved who has passed to the Unknown Land. Although the so-called dead are not dead at all, they are nevertheless separated from the living by the bar riers that the material or physical world maintains. They may be ever near us, but we are not conscious of their presence, and our voices must call in vain for their manifestation upon physical planes of consciousness. Only in the realms of occult science may the living enter into communication with the astral world, but the pathway of adeptship is beset with danger for any but the divine teachers and Saviors of the World, whose help we may as freely implore for the so-called dead as for the living, and just as we find our power of friendly help not altogether limited to our own order of being, so higher and holier beings possess in fuller fruition those privileges of communion which are so helpful to us here. When our spirits are attuned to the spirit of righteousness, our prayers and aspirations exert an in uence far beyond our conscious range and bring us into communication with the invisible helpers of the world.
