Another danger on the quest is a kind of mild madness during the long phase when occult phenomena are sought everywhere, esoteric interpretations are read into everything, and entry into the Overself is expected every day. No natural cause, no physical explanation will be accepted for any event if a supernatural one can be found. The worldly career may be marked by foolish acts which not only harm the actor, but, unwittingly, sometimes others too. Possessions may be squandered, opportunities thrown away, and false friends cultivated.
