Illumination by Manly P. Hall

“Illumination never comes to a person incapable of understanding it or appreciating its significance. It is not unusual for people to go to a teacher of the occult sciences to have their psychic experiences diagnosed and interpreted. One will say, ‘such and such a thing happened to me -was it initiation?’ Another will say, 'I saw some funny lights last night–am I illuminated?’ One rule that all can depend upon is that no one will be illuminated or initiated without knowing it. The reason is evident no one can be initiated until he has reached a state of development in which he is perfectly qualified to decide for himself the significance of his mystical experiences. A person who does not know whether he is illuminated or not very evidently is not, for illumination itself could scarcely fail to clarify this problem for him.”

— Manly P. Hall
