There are many people, who are looking for practical instruction in Occultism. It becomes necessary, therefore, to state once for all:

A) The essential difference between theoretical and practical Occultism; or what is generally known as Theosophy on the one hand, and Occult science on the other.

B) The nature of the difficulties involved in the study of the latter.

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 or her neighbour than in receiving help him- of herself, one who is ever ready to sacrifice his own pleasures for the sake of other people; and who loves Truth, Goodness and Wisdom for their 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 evil; a path which also leads a man to that power through which he can do the good he desires, often without even apparently lifting a finger.

From page 55:

" RISE early, as soon as your are awake, without lying idly in bed, half-waking and half-dreaming. Then, earnestly pray that all mankind may be spiritually regenerated, that those who are struggling on the Path of Truth may be encouraged by your prayers and work more earnestly and successfully. "
