‘Do not throw your pearls before swine’ - commentary

Knowing, willing, daring and keeping silent: the quintessence of initiation is in these four things. 'But why ""keeping silent""?' you will ask. Because the discoveries you can make through the first three activities - knowing, willing and daring - are of such a nature and of such power that it is very dangerous to reveal them to those who are not ready for them, either because they themselves have not begun to walk the spiritual path or because their intentions are bad and they can make bad use of them. Yes, keeping silent shows the immeasurable importance of these three things: knowledge, will and daring. Jesus said, 'Do not throw your pearls before swine'. One of humanity's greatest tragedies is the tendency people have to waste the best things on the worst ventures, and this is why it is preferable not to reveal certain things to them.
