“By diligent study which builds up correct background. Follow carefully what’s said. Study in such a manner that you have a right background yourself; something that is so good that you cannot easily be led astray. You cannot be fooled with the false prophets – with the false claimants. Neither are you led astray by their false claims.
“There are many people who claim communication these days, who do not know the first basic thing about metaphysics, never mind about practical occultism. I mean, staggers me that such people have the cheek and effrontery. It staggers me that such people are wicked enough—the word wicked, I mean, to get up in front of an audience and set themselves up as an authority on these things, when they obviously know so little about them.
“So, by diligent study you will protect yourself from these pitfalls. You won’t be led astray. You will know what’s right and what’s wrong, or if you don’t know then, you’ll soon learn what’s right and what’s wrong and you’ll be able to save yourself the hard knocks, which some of you have had. You’ve told me about the hard knocks you’ve had in the past. And I could weep for you. And at the same time I could call you fools for not studying in such a manner that you saved yourself these hard knocks.”
