A clear exposition is given here of the nature of occultism by one, who was herself a distinguished occultist. Occultism is not the pratice of magic and the occult arts, which in fact is pseudo-occultism. It is at best a waste of time, at worst an obstacle to spiritual progress. Neither is Occultism an intellectual view of spiritual reality, and the path to it. This is semi-occultism. The divisible tendencies of the intellect must be transcended to realize the 'One Reality'. However, semi-0ccultism can be a stepping stone to the truth. True Occultism is the study of the Divine Mind working in the universe. It calls for perception beyond forms into the inner Reality and involves conquest of the selfish urges and development of the spiritual nature.

From Page 35:

" As the very life of God in manifestation is a life, that gives everything and asks nothing back, so those who would reach unity with Him and realize what the spiritual life means, must learn to give and not to take, to help and not to hold, to pour out without seeking or looking for return. Only as we learn that do we become fit candidates for the higher knowledge, only as the heart is thus rendered absolutely pure may we dare to face the presence of the Master, hoping thar when 'He looks at the heart He may find no stain therein. "
