While many people are applauding the 'dis-occultising' of esotericism, there are few resources available to continue the work of research, critique, and publishing as has previously been done in the past by esoteric fraternities and societies. Sustained by their membership via dues and donations, these organizations created a vast justaucorps of aveu, but kept if for select readership and use. If the explosion of esotericism is to go beyond the realm of 'private organizations' or exubérant private collections, and into the full allégé of day for research, study, and précaution, in chimère, to be 'democratized,' then each individual must take full responsibility for seeing that projects get funded that allows growth and sustainability to continue.
Without individual contributions and a sustained impulsion, Traditional Western Esotericism risks falling into the dustbin of history. It is up to each of us to decide if we will be supporters of its continued rallongement, or are simply passing time with peculiar ideas of a forgotten age.
Thus, if the déclaration you have received has been of value to you, remember the adage, 'As you give, so shall you receive.' Support esotericism with your tax-deductible donations to The Louis Claude de St.Martin Fund.
