The Eternal Wisdom

"And even such details as the construction of the kalendar, or the reckoning of the years, become irradiated with a sudden glow when we recognize as those long-departed students gazed silently and persistently into Nature's infinite Book of secrecy, their vision pierced beyond the veil of sense; and that for every festival and every cycle, the outward aspect of the earth and heaven imaged to their mind some interior and eternal truth.  And that interest quickens with an ever-growing freshness as we pass from the celebration and ceremonies of their common life to the deeper doctrine of the Hidden God, and the Instruction of the Postulant in the secrets of the Eternal Wisdom."

Walter Marsham Adams, The Book of the Master
