A Dialectical Interchange
If seekers actively participate in this dialectical interchange, the result is a definite
transformational upheaval 2 in their personality. Very few persons honestly want to change; they feel they're quite okay the way they are. To such persons, this dialectical exchange might seem disturbing--or utter nonsense.
2 Upheaval is required to displace the psyche--mind and personality--from its entrenched intellectual and emotional routines. This is not some vague feeling of uplift or emotion; it is an eruption within the soul.
Only those seekers who are willing--in fact, eager--to go through the re-training of their psyche to rid themselves of all the false beliefs and moods that keep them from discerning the hidden nature of reality will find this interchange of value. This essay requires that the reader learn how to participate effectively in this entirely new procedure; this is not a capability that persons possess as an instinct or one that the ordinary person "picks up" in the usual course of life.

"The superior experience and knowledge will be made available to a man or woman in exact accordance with his worth, capacity and earning of it. . . . Our objective is to achieve, by the understanding of the Origin, the Knowledge which comes through experience."
