- The process of revelation. This process has been and today is the main testimony
and guarantee of the existence  behind the scenes of the phenomenal life, of a
revealing Group or Agency whose task is of a triple nature:
of the Presence. This Presence is the impelling force behind all revelation and is in
reality God Immanent, striving ever for recognition and Itself impelled thereto by the

- To ascertain
with what obstructions, hindrances, and preconceived ideas the new incoming revelation
will have to contend.
interpretations and dogmas fall into this category and there ensues a re-enactment of the
ancient drama of the blind leading the blind, to which Christ referred as He faced the
theologians of His time.
The above statements are true of all revelation as it comes forth from the emanating
center of light, whether they concern so-called religious truth or scientific discoveries
or the great standard of spiritual values whereby advanced humanity of both hemispheres
seek to live and which, from time to time, move on a step in significance and in
