Legend has it that sacred knowledge was never written down but passed on orally from teacher to student.
I don’t think they meant some old guy whispering in some young guy’s ear. I think they mean the old man in you passing it on to the new man in you. This happens orally, but it’s internal… the source of gnostic knowledge.
In my case, it’s like the world’s best teacher paired with the world’s worst student.
We’ll see how that goes 🙂
