	Frank, this is not only arrogant, as but misguided.  "crystals,
tarot, and rituals" are all techniques.  You are comparing techniques
to "deeper teachings."  This is like saying that soup is better than
a spoon.  But without the spoon, how does one taste the soup? The 
"fact" of the matter is, rituals and crystals can be used to directly 
experience those "deeper teachings" that otherwise remain
just mental gymnastics.
