This seems so simple, but somehow there are so many other white witches who refuse/fail to grasp the concept of initiatory or “closed” traditions. 

It’s like a house.
You always knock on the door.
Some houses will let you in.
Some will not.
Some will let you in to the living room and offer help for a fee.
Some don’t even have a front door and the entire house is public domain.
Some will let you in as a guest for as long as you like but you are never allowed to go into the bedroom or the attic.
Some will check the peephole and tell you to go away or not answer the door at all.

Catch my drift? But regardless of what you want, what you think, what you believe you are somehow entitled to – ***it is not your house***.
