he most profound secrets lie not wholly in knowledge, said the poet.
They lurk invisible in that vitalizing spark, intangible, yet as
evident as the lightning—the seeker's soul. Solitary digging for facts
can reward one with great discoveries, but true secrets are not
discovered—they are shared, passed on in confidence from one to
another. The genuine seeker listens attentively.

hidden truth. As possessor and thereby guardian of this knowledge, may

"The really carefully guarded secret of the priests of all the religions, which they will never voluntarily relinquish to the world, is that priests are not needed, nor what priests know or what initiates do or what the devout believe—practices and sacraments, anything. The truth is that God inhabits without limit; wherever the real is or the actual does, He is it. Special knowledge of how to get in touch with him is that same knowledge which carries the bee home to its hive each night; who sells that knowledge to the bee? If we have no money, if we can't read or be wise, are we abandoned? Does He abandon the lowly insects because they are virtually no more than reflex machines? Just as truth cannot really be suppressed, at least not forever, it neither can be horded. We are taught day and night, as all living entities are: ceaselessly. God did not begin to govern and inform the cosmos when writing and money were invented."
