All things have three levels "outer", "inner", and "secret".

Very few people are ever introduced to the "secret".
The "outer" is the shield. It protects the other two levels from prying eyes and eavesdropping ears.
You might request to join the "outer", and if you have the right moral character, they may let you in, to become part of the shield.
You can spend all of your life happily working for the shield. By its very nature, the shield does things that the outer society would generally
consider "good deeds". So, if you get stuck in the shield, you'll probably be fine.
But to progress further, into the "light" may require you to change your views of the world. You might find this exciting, or you might find this
revolting. But if you are happy being you, why should you change? Despite all claims to the contrary, no one can "Make a Good man Better". But, men
can be mislead. There are so many ways to mislead men, that the term "broad is the way to destruction" has been used to describe this reality.
If there is any danger to this new light, it starts at the :"inner" level. No one can ask about the "secret" level, because it is by invitation
only. The club may not even acknowledge there is a "Secret" level, and may only promote the two outer ones.
However, that shield is there for a purpose. And you should probably ask yourself, why does anyone need a shield. Is the nature of the shield
reflective of the nature of the inner and secret levels? Are they really doing the same kinds of things on all three levels? Why not just have one
flat level order? You can actually figure out what the secret is, before you get an invitation to join. Just use reason and common sense. You may be
able to leave the club, if you're just an outer member. But, once you enter the secret, there's no way out. So, do you value your freedom more than
your curiosity to know?
If a secret is being kept from the outer world, maybe there's a good reason. The more faith you have, the less knowledge you need. The less faith you
have, the more knowledge you generally need to be feel satisfied. So, depending on your faith, you may or may not need any more light. Only you can
make that decision, since only you know the state of your faith.
