A guidebook for spiritual truth. According to the author, the methods used date back to ancient Egypt and Chaldea. Contains some of the most effective spiritual instruction ever used. The author was well-schooled in wisdom from around the world, often referring to Hermetic, Kabalistic, Theosophical, and Buddhist principles. The book is divided into two parts: The Science of the Soul and The Science of the Stars. Explores karma, immortality, reincarnation and the human soul, plus chapters on The Mysteries of Sex, The Realm of Spirit, Alchemy, Astrology and the Zodiac. Meant for slow and serious study, for those wishing to attain wisdom as opposed to knowledge.
This book is about the attainment of spiritual truth. Volume Two continues where Part One left off within the areas of the zodiac and astro-theology. This is advanced information, written at a higher level than Volume One. It contains more information on astrology than one will likely to see. It is a small occult library in itself, commonly used as a text for esoteric knowledge, whether alone or part of a group. Both books contain spiritual truths not found elsewhere, mostly concerned with man s place in the universe, both here and after death.
Justly considered an occult masterpiece, 'Light of Egypt' is a perfect introduction to esoteric studies. The book will astound with both its breadth of vision and its profound knowledge of the genuine Hermetic Tradition, from death and reincarnation, through occult training and Adeptship, to a rational explanation of Astrological Science.
What is a Spiritualist? A large number of Spiritualist Churches exist around the world yet very little has been published by them or for them.. Highly recommended as a complete guidebook for all Spiritualists world-wide.
Is there another world beyond this physical reality? The author, Rudolf Steiner, says there is. This book describes what it is like to stand at the threshold of the spiritual world and begin experiencing it in deeper ways. We seem to know it is there and some of us have experienced glimpses of it. Steiner reveals how these glimpses come about and what we can do to hold onto them longer. He shows us that there really is a threshold into the spiritual world and how it can be crossed if we know what to do.
Islam has been the fastest growing religion in the world for many years, and was founded by the prophet Mohammed, who lived from about C.E. 570-632. The author wrote this book to serve as a bridge between the Islamic and Christian worlds. Some scholars claim that Islam and Christianity are on a collision course, with no chance for harmony due to immense cultural differences. This book proclaims the exact oppositethat common threads between these worlds are so strong that we can appreciate our differences. States that Jesus and Mohammed belong next to each other, as opposed to one (no matter which one) being above the other. If equal recognition could occur then mutual respect would result. This book can contribute important ideas of harmony and respect between faiths.
With his earlier two series in Egyptology, Gerald Massey turned existing doctrine on its head to argue that not only had Egypt spawned human civilization, but that Egyptian mythology was the basis for Jewish and Christian beliefs. The culmination of his years at this particular intellectual pursuit, Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World is Massey's crown jewel. In this, the most philosophical (in both tone and concept) of his Egyptological works, Massey, ever the intrepid escort, leads a tour through thousands of years of sociological, cultural, and spiritual development, all the while pointing, with dazzling reason and persuasive prose, to a distant, common, Egyptian origin. British author GERALD MASSEY (1828-1907) published works of poetry, spiritualism, Shakespearean criticism, and theology, but his best-known works are in the realm of Egyptology, including A Book of the Beginnings and The Natural Genesis.
This is Eliphas Levi's (1810-1875) best-known book. This work arguably made Levi THE most influential writer on magic since the Renaissance. Originally issued in French, the English translator is A.E. Waite and it is doubtful that anyone else could have better captured the essence of Levi's work. The book is divided in two parts; the first is theoretical, the second practical. This is a fascinating and often debated work involving a discussion that covers almost the entire realm of Ritual and High Magic.
