In some cases the promised elucidations appear in other places than those indicated, but they are mostly wanting altogether. One of the most obvious defects, the result of mere carelessness or ritufl haste in writing, is the promise to explain or to prove given points later on, which are forgotten subsequently by the author.

Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie: The hierarchic order of the visible world has its complement in the invisible hierarchy, which analogy leads us to discern, being at the same time a process of our perception rather than a rigid law governing the modes of manifestation in all things seen and unseen ; initiation takes us to the bottom step of the ladder of the invisible hierarchy and instructs us in the principles of ascent, but the ascent rests personally with ourselves; the voices of some who have preceded can be heard above us, but they are of those who are still upon the way, and they die as they rise into the silence, towards which we also must ascend alone, where initiation can no longer help us, unto that bourne from whence no traveller returns, and the influxes are sacramental only to those who are below.

He was commonly to be found chez lui in a species of magical vestment, which may be pardoned in a French magus, and his only available portrait prefixed to this volume represents him in that guise.
Shortly after this step, he was suddenly expelled from Saint Sulpice for holding opinions contrary to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. This, therefore, constitutes the importance of the ” Doctrine and Eitual ” ; disguised indubitably, it is levj the voice of initiation ; of what school does not matter, for in this connection nothing can be spoken plainly, and I can ask only the lenience of deferred judgment from my readers for my honourable assurance that I am not speaking idly.

No modern expositor of occult science can bear any comparison with Sliphas Levi, and among ancient dlgme tors, though many stand higher in authority, all yield to him in living interest, for he is actually the spirit of modern thought forcing an answer for the times from the old oracles.
