“The Pillars of the Temple: These pillars symbolize the heart and mind, the positive and the negative poles of life. Those who would enter the temple must pass BETWEEN the pillars. Every extreme is dangerous. It is the point between all poles that is safe to stand upon. You cannot enter the temple by the development of either the heart or mind alone, but only by the equal development of both.”
The just read excerpt came from the book The Initiates of the Flames, 1922, p. 41, which was written by Manly P. Hall.
