French term or phrase: une pâture à leur portée
I'm looking for some suggestions to have a few options how to translate this.

To give some context:
The author talks about how a certain method should be accessible as possible: not only for the intellects for example, but for all people, even the one who didn't have the fortune to go through elaborate studies. In other words, if my interpretation is accurate: he wants to have for everybody "une pâture à leur portée":

('Homologies' is a book by the way)
-

...il faut que la méthode soit applicable par tous les sujets intelligents, même par ceux que la fortune n'a pas favorisés et qui n'ont pu faire d'études scientifiques ; par tous ceux également dont les charges de famille et professionnelles monopolisent tout leur temps de telle sorte qu'ils n'en peuvent consacrer à la méditation.

De plus, les sympathisants qui n'osent se lancer dans des exercices actifs et énergiques, comme ceux que nous avons donnés dans « Homologies », doivent avoir aussi -> une pâture à leur portée
