Beloved Bhakti,

Love. Now man knows more about man than ever. And yet no problem is solved.

It seems that something is basically wrong with our so- called knowledge itself.

This whole knowledge is derived from analysis.

And analysis is incapable of penetrating into the depths of consciousness.

The Analytical method is all right with matter or with things.

Because there is no INSIDE to them.

But consciousness is INSIDENESS.

And to use the analytical method with consciousness is to treat it as an object, while it is not an object at all.

And it cannot be made an object.

Its very nature is subjectivity.

Its being is subjectivity.

So it must not be approached from outside.

Because then whatsoever is known about it is not about it.

Consciousness must be approached from inside.

And then the method is meditation and not analysis.

Meditation is synthetic.

It is concerned with the whole and not with the part.

It is subjective and not objective.

It is irrational or super-rational and not rational.

It is religious or mystic, and not scientific.

Authentic knowledge of consciousness comes only through meditation and all else is just superficial acquaintance and basically erroneous because the very source of it is fallacious.

And poisonous.

Masonic secrecy and threats of horrific punishment
for 'disclosing' the truth about freemasonry.
From Entered Apprentice initiation ceremony:

"Furthermore: I do promise and swear that I will not write,
indite, print, paint, stamp, stain, hue, cut, carve, mark
or engrave the same upon anything movable or immovable,
whereby or whereon the least word, syllable, letter, or
character may become legible or intelligible to myself or
another, whereby the secrets of Freemasonry may be unlawfully
ob-tained through my unworthiness.

To all of which I do solemnly and sincerely promise and swear,
without any hesitation, mental reservation, or secret evasion
of mind in my whatsoever; binding myself under no less a penalty
than that

of having my throat cut across,

my tongue torn out,

and with my body buried in the sands of the sea at low-water mark,
where the tide ebbs and flows twice in twenty-four hours,

should I ever knowingly or willfully violate this,
my solemn Obligation of an Entered Apprentice.

So help me God and make me steadfast to keep and perform the same."
