A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

'That is not what I meant : yesterday we were traversing villages and populated country, but to-day we are ascending untrodden and mysterious ground. Did you hear the guide say that the natives consider this to be the abode of gods ?'-And so saying, he lifted up his eyes to the mountain top.
But Apollonius brought him back to the original point by asking, ` Could you tell me, Damis, what apprehension of divinity you have gained by your walk in the neighbourhood of heaven ? '

` Such knowledge of divinity as I had yesterday is all that I have to-day, and no new idea on that subject has yet occurred to me.'
` That is to say, Damis, that actually you are still down below, you have got nothing by height, and are as far away from heaven as yesterday. My original question was a reasonable one, though you did think I was asking it for fun. These commanding points of view may reveal bluer skies to us, and bigger stars, and the sun rising out of the night,-one need only be a shepherd or a goatherd to see these sights,-but the methods of divine providence, the principles of acceptable worship, the nature of virtue, of justice and of temperance, these are secrets which neither Athos nor Olympus, much glorified by the poets, can display to those who climb them, unless they have spiritual discernment : for the soul, when pure and undefiled it addresses itself to these tasks, can, I tell you, easily outsoar this mountain of Caucasus.'
The mountain dragons have scales which show golden ; they are longer than the plain-land variety, have a curly beard (also
