Who are the Prophets?
ANCIENT PROPHETS, MODERN PSYCHICS, and WHAT THEY PREDICT
BUT WHO ARE THE PROPHETS!?...
Prophets, psychics, magicians & fortune-tellers may have as much in common as Canaries & Giraffes. You can only tell them apart in that some stand high and others sing better. But so do Pilots & Sailors. Apart from a kind of trade, there seldom is a resemblance, only some look the part, and others have stage presence. What really makes them different from everyone else is that they "dabble in the Black Arts"...
You could be a despot or an assassin, and still rate as a person—even the Taxman does...—but if you're a mystic, be prepared to be treated as a jackal or a martyr. You have to prove that you belong to the human race... Try selecting Metaphysics as a Vocational Option... If you're 14, OCCULT is in what you find in the HORROR Section, at the Video Library. You could be thrice as old, live in the most emancipated cities, and never have conceived of it as a lifestyle. From this standpoint, Prophets & Psychics of any description all are socially perceived as one—they commerce with the forbidden, this is reason enough!
It's that the SUPERNATURAL makes a mockery of esteemed values, basically.
You could be treated as more of an eccentric than a fake, or worse, depending on mood or town. PROPHETS OF DOOM gain publicity in many parts of the world, but are unheard of in many more. It's an old saying, "The Devil walks among civilised men, or hangs at the village-gate" This Proverb—just made up for our Readers, now...—warns against too hasty a conclusion as to who is better off or what might be safer. Some think it more manageable to have hell in our streets, rather than make it look like paradise—only to have Horns stuck above the door-frame, every ten houses apart!
As in other lines of
work, there are degrees of occult
proficiency, shades of mysticism, special orientations,
exceptions, variations, unusual observations, talent, etc. Being
good-natured, mischievous, wholesome or irascible has to do with
Temperament, NOT Trade—or IGNORANCE would be a biological
condition. ILLITERACY is especially enforced by
circumstances—which is why there is hope in this world. One
could be a despot or perform miracles, and never see it happen.
In the final analysis, EVIL always occurs in exact
proportion to a degree of Personal Ignorance—and
only exceptionally in connection with a Kind of Trade.
