PREFACE.

Our object in publishing THE ESOTERIC is to present METHODS of attainment to those persons who have, by the processes of development, reached a point in their experience where they feel the need of a higher order of Life, and are seeking a way by which they may come into the understanding of the object of our life in the flesh, and obtain a fuller development of all their faculties, Physical, Mental, and Spiritual.

We recognize the real man to be the conscious, thinking part in us, that is, the “Soul,” which has two spheres of action and consciousness, viz. one interior and spiritual, the other exterior and physical. When both spheres of consciousness are obtained, man will understand the use in everything, and cease from selfish struggle and combat with his fellow, thus helping to bring about a new order of humanity to overspread and control our earth. We know that there are many persons who look forward to this goal, and The ESOTERIC is sent out for the purpose of uniting them in a concerted effort to form a centre of these more perfected souls, and eventually to have a locality set apart for their education and perfection, so that the highest possible ultimates may be reached. This volume, therefore, expounds the doctrine, and supplies methods that, if carefully and zealously applied, develop the soul, which then will enable all to become conscious of the Spirit wherein there is a perfect knowledge of all things necessary for man's use and true well-being.
