The Manifestation of THE SEVEN
The purpose of this work, THE SEVEN, is not the enunciation of any special philosophy or doctrine, but rather is to give a statement of Truth that will serve to reconcile the many bits of knowledge we may have acquired, which seem apparently opposed to each other which often serve to discourage and disgust one in the study of the mysteries of life. The intent is not to erect a new Temple of Knowledge, but rather to place in our hands THE SEVEN Master Keys with which we may open many inner doors in the Temple of Mystery through the main portals we have already entered.
From lip to ear this Hermetic truth has been handed down among the few. There have always been a few in each generation, in the various lands of the earth, who kept alive the sacred flame of these Teachings. These few have always been willing to use their lamps to relight the dimmer lamps of the outside world, when the light of truth grew dim, and clouded by reason of neglect, when the wicks became clogged with foreign matter.
