The Spiritual Guidance of Man and Mankind: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

Rudolf Steiner needs little introduction due to his enormous number of lectures and literary works (hundreds of volumes)- suffice it to say this work comes from the period in which he was still a theosophist and had not yet schismed from the post-Blavatsky order to form his own vaguely separate anthroposophy.

It speaks at length on human evolution from a mystic perspective, the manner of reality, and the concept of Christlike-ness; it is mostly notable for its statements on the development of human culture along occult lines.

Clairvoyance: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This little book is the result of the efforts of JCF Grumbine, who for his life led a Rosicrucian offshoot called the Order of the White Rose. It is partially philosophical in nature and dwells on the form of natural law and deific forces and things of that kind, but is essentially split into lessons each with a short sort of how-to “experiment” involving mindfulness and similar things.

It is, overall, dense but well written and contains material related to the spiritual side of electricity and magnetism, as well as telepathy.

Mystics of the Renaissance: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This book is one of those works Rudolf Steiner wrote which primarily compiles and analyzes and draws from secondary sources; namely, as the title suggests, some of the mystic minds of the Renaissance, although it includes, also, Medieval minds and some contemporary work by Eckhart and others. It goes from Paracelsus and Agrippa through Boehme and many others.

The statements made here vary both from those sources and Steiner; it speaks of the nature of being, the nature of divinity, the relationship between man and the deity or deities he worships, and meanders from those into sub-topics as well. It is quite well written and interesting as Steiners’ works tend to be. As a pointless but meaningless aside the initial source file was around 300 pages in length, which goes to show you the odd format and line spacing used in the early 20th century.

The Supernatural: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is a frightfully short but very interesting work which, as with a few others I have edited, is primarily a speech (an oratory) meant to be delivered to an audience, as opposed to a booklet in and of itself. Penned by the well known Congregationalist Lyman Abbott. Here he expounds a bit on his evolving conception of his god and the presence of spiritual forces and states that he conceives of his deity as inter-penetrating all things while also refuting polytheism.

The title is slightly misleading since it is more about the form of divinity than the supernatural in a more general sense but it is still an interesting opinion piece.

The Ideals of Theosophy: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This work is quite a notable one, being written by Besant- one of the foremost theosophists of the movement, and once-adoptive mother of Krishnamurti himself. It contains a series of four lectures, two of which are basically about socio-political issues- these two are quite interesting because the criminal and societal reforms spoken of were indeed largely adopted by western nations after this era- for example not trying children as adults in the same legal framework for any but the most significant crimes, and preventative justice of several sorts.

While Besant was initially a political activist and socialist she later became interested more solely in spiritual matters; this work represents the step in between the two and shows her interest (waning as it was) in civic matters seeping into her religious philosophy. Works of this type helped to shape modernity in all its forms.

Death and the Afterlife: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This book is a strange one even by my own standards; it should be duly noted that due to censorship (and the deplatforming raids which have become a hallmark of the last few years) I have redacted a section of the book begrudgingly. You can find the original scans here if you wish and view this taboo knowledge for yourself about the races of mankind.

Andrew Jackson Davis, the author, wrote several works from the perspective of a clairvoyant. In this book he claims to have communicated with spirits and also to have seen the afterlife, which in his visions is rather varied, changeable, and wondrous, with rivers of light and many more wonders. For those intrigued by history it should be noted that this is one of the early works that would later form the backbone of eugenics-era philosophy without itself being eugenic in manner. Such philosophical writings would eventually give rise to the modern world.

The Divine Mystery: Now Available!

CLICK TO PURCHASE

This is an extremely interesting (and somewhat odd) little work that comes courtesy of the man who led the Rosicrucian FRC order (and fought with AMORC) for quite a large part of his life. Apparently interested in most sub-fields of occult lore, Clymer is known mostly for straight philosophical lore, but here has compiled three technical components into one work; a heavily altered variant of Sinistrari’s “Demoniality”, a short number of philosophical passages mentioning gnostic lore, and then a series of bits of actual dialogue between Jesus and the Virgin Mary on spiritual topics, which conforms to the FRC’s own ideology. Altogether the work is well worth reading, and its insinuation that the Virgin Mary was impregnated by a salamander, (a fire spirit) is perhaps heretical to main line christianity but interesting nonetheless.
