This is a simple guide to conjuring the Goetic spirits. This book was originally published in 1999, but this audio version contains a lot of new material that was only released in an ultra-rare private second edition. This includes some very powerful techniques for opening up the inner planes more effectively.
"not the as detailed, more of a summery."
Dr. Franz Hartmann was a notable Freemason and prolific writer of his day, as well as being a member of several esoteric organizations such as the Theosophical Society and a non-masonic Templar Order. Here, he examines the similarities in meditative practices between the East and the West, of which there are many, including postures and regulation of breath. In both instances, the desired outcome is reception of the divine mysteries.
"So many identical traditions in world religions"
Heralding from the famed Emerald Tablet, Mead examines the phrase, "As Above So Below", with particular attention paid to how it pertains to students of Theosophy. He spends time discussing the astral realm as well as exploring the concept of Flatland and what these two things may have to do with this age-old Hermetic axiom.
As the title suggests, Wright examines the similarities between the Druids and a wide variety of their contemporaries, such as the Indian Brahmans, who share a number of religious symbols and practices. There is a fair amount of discussion regarding the symbol of the oak tree in both Druidism and Judaism as well as other faiths.
"not even worth the 3 dollars!"
Waite attempts to make a connection between the occultist and the mystic, who he describes as searching for the same experience. The difference being that one is what he calls the saint and the other is what he deems a specialist. He also points out general occultists, who may be neither but who were well read and have helped to harmonize information but didn't actually do anything, such as Robert Fludd and Cornelius Agrippa.
"The Gift of the Mystic vs Occult"
British writer and member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, J. W. Brodie-Innes was also the author of a number of Theosophical essays. In this piece, he explores Universal Brotherhood and the connectivity of Nature in general, as well as the primal aversion to separateness. He speaks of separateness in terms of both the microcosm and the macrocosm. There are also veiled alchemical references, which the astute student may catch.
