I'm beginning to understand why esoteric aims are undertaken in silence.
Most of the people out there are not sympathetic towards the aims of the esotericist. That's simply the way it is.
Also, participation in internet forums is a drain on your energy. At least, on my energy.
Sigh. I've met some very knowledgeable and informative people. I've also met some obstinate curmudgeons. Sometimes in the same people.
Ah well. I'm in the final 6 months of Abremelin anyway. Perhaps I need to withdraw more.
