Wisdom of The Idiots; part 25; Hidden Truth, The Bleeding Obvious & Book Sales

There aint no such thing as esoteric literature; No such thing as esoteric books, pamphlets, monographs, broadsheets, drawings, designs, paintings, hexen sigils, seals, mojos, music, chant, poetry, song, cartoons, newspapers or any other signal form visible, written, seen, heard, hummed, whistled, mimed or spoken. It matters not whether you think you are a Buddhist, a Jain, a Hindu, a Moslem, a Catholic or some Multi Ethnic Colourful Invention of your own – which far more likely these days. The mass of 'genuine' esoteric literature available on the subject is overwhelmingly emphatic on this point.
If it's in a book then it's exoteric. If it's in the mouths of men then it's exoteric. If it's a Navaho sand painting or a Tibetan mandala then it's in this world and partakes of the flaws of this world. The structure of this world does not support the manifestation of higher Truth in material form.

I'll invoke Parmenides who describes two views of reality;
in "The Way of Truth" he explains how reality - that which 'is' - is one, singular, and that change is impossible, and existence is timeless, uniform, necessary, and unchanging.
In "The Way of Opinion," he explains the world of appearances, in which one's sensory faculties lead to conceptions which are false and deceitful.
How easy is it to bamboozle the intellect? Consider the following:
“The next statement is true.”
“The previous statement is false.”
The intellect is particularly prone to being caught in the logic trap and the intellect is the target for all so-called esoteric literature. The route in is through the emotions.

There are two 'secrets' and only two in Man's eternal quest.
The Law; To discover the law which created man, the physical being.
The Work; To reveal the connection between man, the material man, and man, the spiritual man.

There are two lessons and only two lessons in any 'esoteric' book;
Truth exists and there is a path to it
Truth cannot be approached by Man's ordinary faculties of perception and cognition in this world.

As for extrasensory powers and divine attributes these are not secrets to be discovered - neither are they goals in themselves as many think of them. They are the by-product of the successful search, and are available to us only when we have achieved and demonstrated absolute moral and ethical development and that one is far and away beyond their abuse.
Of course, you can just dismiss this and say that that’s just one mad old man's opinion, is it not?
