Mmmmm - 61

Occultism is not magic, although magic is one of it's tools

Occultism is not the acquirement of powers, whether psychic or intellectual, though both are it's servants

Neither is occultism the pursuit of happiness, as men understand the word, for the first step is sacrifice, the second renunciation

Life is built up by the sacrifice of the individual to the whole.

Each cell in the living body must sacrifice itself to the perfection of the whole;when it is otherwise, disease and death enforce the lesson.

And it is the same today as when these words were written many many years ago

And yes occultism is practised today as it was then

No public acclaim for those who follow the path

Nor will this ever change for the rules are inviolable
