The wise remain hidden
"Those powers and authorities that are not aware of Knowledge or who do not honor the existence of Knowledge will tend to oppose it and regard it as a threat to their authority and to the stability of the nations that they govern. This again is why the pure practice in The Way of Knowledge is usually done in a clandestine manner, in secrecy, through various networks of individuals who are able to communicate with one another beyond the scrutiny of their own governments and political organizations." 
Gifts for the few
"The Wise everywhere work with as much secrecy as possible. They contribute their gifts to those individuals for whom their gifts are destined and required." 
"There are not many Wise in the physical universe, regardless of culture. Do you know why that is? It is because the Wise must hide. They must hide because their gifts are meant for certain individuals only, and they must hide to maintain their freedom to give." 
"There are adept individuals in all societies throughout the Greater Community."
"Finer and more subtle abilities exist within all individuals, and greater powers exist within particular individuals and within particular cultures or races. These can all be exploited for political or military value. Therefore, there is a great burden in carrying Knowledge and Wisdom: the burden of keeping them hidden, knowing who to share them with and how much to share."
Races in the Greater Community
"Races of beings who can maintain their freedom and insulation must become strong and united and will likely withdraw from Greater Community interactions to a very great degree in order to protect that freedom." 
"The wise throughout the Greater Community remain hidden. They do not seek commerce in the Greater Community. They do not seek to be part of guilds or trading cooperatives. They do not seek diplomacy with many worlds. Their network of allegiance is more mysterious, more spiritual in nature. They understand the risks and the difficulties of exposure to the realities of life in the physical universe. They maintain their insulation, and they remain vigilant at their borders. They only seek to extend their wisdom through means that are less physical in nature." 
"Ultimately, the most powerful races in the universe are entirely hidden. And if they have any trade at all, it is maintained with the greatest secrecy usually carried out by other nations that support them, that act as proxies for them. If you attain a great power in the mental environment, your powers would be sought by other nations. Your skills would be sought by other nations, and other nations will attempt to seduce you or induce you through promises of wealth, splendor or high social positions—whatever they can do to seduce you in order to gain control of these abilities."
