I am a writer on how theosophy exists in the human consciousness. One is not "alone" along the shores of the inner self because the appearance of "others" arises in that inward stream. To take spiritual knowledge is to give up the privacy of one's own interior self. The mercenary man has an amateur vision that he will somehow possess knowledge alone. But it doesn't work that way. The voluntary assumption of the obligatory is in fact giving up one's life, meaning giving up privacy to the sweeping fields of the innermost heartland, for humanity.
As ever, D.
