The very idea that any one creature (human) should be fortunate enough to secure some particular advantage which others, through their own indolence or indifference have missed is sufficient to excite the envy of the weak or the anger of the ignorant . 

It is impossible that an outsider should enter into a clear understanding of the mystical spiritual world around him and it  follows  that the teachings and tenets of that spiritual nature world must be more or less a closed book to such a one - a book, moreover, which he seldom cares or dares to try and open. 

For this reason the sages concealed much of their profound knowledge from the multitude, because they rightly recognised the limitations of narrow minds and prejudiced opinions.....what a fool cannot learn, he laughs at, thinking by his laughter he shows superiority instead of latent idiocy.
