We lost yet another board owner, though it was a year or more since he last logged in. In addition, we lost his digital library which is a shame since it sounded very extensive. As the new BO, I do not plan on changing the direction of the board. The old rules still apply, however, if anyone has suggestions regarding rules, settings, or the board in general, this thread will be left unlocked for that purpose.

Rules:

1. /occult/ is a board with a focus on praxis and discussion of it. It is heavily encouraged that new threads reference some sort of academic material, be it a book, website, video, or whathaveyou. Notable exceptions include requests for material.

On-topic general (read: lacking a source) discussion threads are still allowed (e.g. "What kinds of meditations do you do?"), but users are encouraged to post relevant material (e.g. a book or video where you learned a meditation) in threads like those.

2. Do not create a new thread if a thread on the topic already exists unless the "theme" deviates significantly from the "theme" of the existing thread.

3. No shitposting (unless it makes the mod laugh).

4. Keep discussion civil; express yourself using whatever language you find suitable (within reason), but do not attack/insult another poster.

5. Think before you post. /occult/ encourages high-quality discussion.

6. Global Rules always apply.

I wanted to create this thread for the less artistically inclined. I myself am somewhat in this boat. Generally I try to make things myself unless it is too elaborate.

Needed a good bookstore post for this thread. Books are supplies in the sense that they supply wisdom. Some of these sites are sprinkled throughout other threads, but I wanted to collect them here for easier reference. All of these sites are specialty occult booksellers. So some, not all, of the prices of their wares will reflect the limited supply.

I think I am finished for now with the book store post. I tried to collect all the ones I had saved with new ones I came across, while attempting to eliminate broken links. If I double posted any, or if a link is broken, please let me know below or in the board welcome thread. I will edit the store posts if I come across any future pertinent links. This will give some organization to the thread, without each store being posted separately or in bundles. I probably will sticky this in the future, but we are rather slow to worry about that right now. Also if anyone has a good site to add, please feel free to post it. I would also like to create a decent post for producers of occult music. Some I have identified already, like comasection and AIN23, but I am looking for a good collection of others. Hope everyone enjoys this.

P.S.

Maybe in the coming future I will attempt to make a master resource thread, containing the links from the free library thread with those of this thread. This would cut down on the amount of stickies up top. If this sounds like a good idea let me know.

Hello everyone,I've always been curious about the occult, but have always managed to find things that went above my head or didn't quite click. I feel I should also mention I am a Catholic, so the idea of messing about with this casually seems insane. I am quite curious what reading all of you would suggest for a beginning practitioner. Finally I am curious of what you have accomplished with your magic, and how strong and immediate the effect was.

Thank you for any response.

The key to understanding all things Esoteric and Scientific can be found in this ancient wisdom. Anyone wanting an intro into understanding the knowledge of all Mystery Teachings should start with The Kybalion.

 No.1076

>>1075

I like The Kybalion but I hesitate to put too much weight on the idea that it carries the summum bonum of esoteric thought. The Kybalion did not arrive on scene until 1908. So it is a product of the modern occult revival. Prior to The Kybalion, one could make the argument that the Tabula Smaragdina was seen as carrying the greatest revelation of the mysteries. I also hesitate to debate the authorship of the Kybalion, because it seems to be a touchy subject, at least on /fringe/. It is indeed a great introduction into occult ideas distilled into modern occult thought understandable to the layman.


 No.1078

>>1076

The Kybalion was just a collaboration to re-inject or revive (like you said) the availability of the Hermetic Principles in a simple publication. One of the initiates who authored it was, Paul Foster Case. Allegedly so, atleast.

But those principles go back thousands of years. The teachings of Thoth or Hermes Trismigistis, or whoever one wants to identify the Figure as, are the roots of esoteric teachings.

The simplicity in the understanding of energy and reality can be found echoed throughout history by Mystics, Sages, etc etc, from all areas of the world and within all different kinds of esoteric medium.

In my opinion it all reflects the Hermetic Principles, all just explained and expressed differently in degree.

I definitely agree. It is like taking some of best maxims and ideas throughout the ages and putting them together in a way far more easier to understand and find.

>Paul Foster Case

It is my belief that he played a role in the creation of The Kybalion. How much a role he played, we don't really know. I will admit that I am a bit biased in his favor, as I am a member of BOTA and a former member of FLO. However, I have read a number of works by Case, and his writing and explanations seem very familiar in tone to The Kybalion. It very well may be that WWA wrote most of it, but I still cannot subtract Case out of it. Here is a podcast where I think they mention Case's involvment with the The Kybalion, but I don't know for sure if this is the right episode. It is an hour in length, but if it is the wrong one, well at least it gives some insight into Case.

The gematria of Tetragrammaton is 26 (2+6=8), while the gematria of Pentagrammaton is 27 (2+7=9).

Used 49 times in the scriptures, the number symbolizes divine completeness or conveys the meaning of finality.

But you can't help but to be what you are, I realize that in a literal sense geography was destiny.

If we both had changed positions we would both be each-other and you would be saying to me what I'm saying to you right now.

I guess you cannot help but to be how you are any more than I can help but to be how I am.

Just the position "I" am standing in has made me aware "I" and "You" doesn't exist in any meaningful way.

There is nothing anymore for me, I don't feel better or worse than you.

For many ages, the great adepts of the world have contributed a lot of their works into making themselves disappear — ascend.

Now is the time to make the universe disappear with science! We must find a way to make material space and negative space cancel each other out into nothingness — without the interference of darkness. It is either we make this sacrifice or we cozy ourselves here in the cycle of darkness — where our meaningful occult existence gets eaten away by the serpent.

And these are the gates that one must pass through towards liberation. According to Rawn Clark the Sefer Yetzirah sought to understand the "32 paths of Wisdom", or the 32 times that "Elohim" is mentioned in the first chapter of Genesis. It is in the sequence or combination of these 32 paths that 231 gates are formed. I think this was posted elsewhere, but here is Rawn Clark's work on the 231 Gates. This is separate from ideas that constitute the 182 Gates of the Gra Tree, whose ideas were originally formed by Rabbi Elijah of Vilna in the 18th century.

Pretty much this >>1055. The Eastern schools focused more on this than the Western schools. The Western tradition focused more heavily on the internal aspects of the elements without carrying much theory as to how that would manifest in the external environment. Bardon, however, focused on the external manifestations of the elements in IIH. I haven't followed Bardon's path or any Eastern schools, but with conversations with those that have, the means are there but they indeed take many years to practice. Keep in mind that regardless of East or West tradition, the elements have to be balanced and mastered internally first before external manifestations can happen.

I would also think that external manifestation being dependent upon internal harmony, would make it very hard for many to go around showing off skills. One could witness things for themselves, but as soon as an attempt to show others occurs, then the elements become unbalanced and the manifestation doesn't happen. The ego begins cause pride to well up which weakens the internal harmony of elements, in turn throwing off the external ability. This is why guys that attempt this in real life are generally BS artists or magicians just doing tricks. The Fire Yogi didn't go to the camera, the camera men came to him to watch him, as he was in deep meditation and most likely just wanted to be left alone. My thoughts anyway.

These terms have been floating around since shortly after the rise of the internet. And while I do know of meme magick and the use of Google image search for divination, I do not feel like they fully constitute a new genre of magickal thought. I have just started, literally, learning to program. In the process of doing that, I was wondering if there are any anons that have experimented with using programming as a way to work magick? I suppose I mean in the same way you break down an intent into a sigil, but instead of a sigil it becomes a string of code. Any and all thoughts are appreciated, especially if anyone has found good sources for this.

I am no programmer, but I have thought about this a bit in the past. The best idea that I could come up with is for divination. You have a program generate a lot of random variables, and your intent influences that function.

As I barely know any code myself, the ideas I have may have to wait to be expounded upon until I learn a bit more. Your idea for divination sounds interesting, but I wouldn't know how to go about creating something like that yet. I guess I want something that goes a bit deeper than meme magick, which has primarily become something strictly visual anymore. I would really like to find a way to encode one's desire so that whenever a command is executed so is the desire. There is currently so little out there. I did stumble across another occultist whose ideas seem somewhat close to the concept. More of a technomancer artist, but he gives food for thought.

I was thinking how good it would be for things like guided meditations , I'm not sure if we would end up using this exclusively instead of actual rituals, after all you need all the senses you can activate (touch, smell, hearing) in order to build a good ritual, but perhaps it could be used for basic stuff.

Has anyone read any of his works? It seems he wrote a number of books on the tarot, concentration, and theurgy. He seems extremely underrated, or maybe there is a reason for that.

I think I started reading the "Quintessence" book he wrote on the Tarot and I just found it extremely dense, whether with good or bad information I wasn't able to figure out. I just stopped after the third or fourth major arcane. I suppose the more you read about the Tarot and associations the better, but at some points I just found myself wishing my subconscious was smart enough to catch all that esoteric stuff that my conscious brain was simply not getting at all.

Will definitely try to tackle this again in the future.

Kind of in the same boat as you. I have his book on Theurgy, but it basically just his ideas on what the concept of Theurgy represents. Not so much a book on any practical means. I suppose one could figure out how to develop a practice from his words, but certain information is just left out completely. His tarot book I have never read.

For most people, the door into the occult opens from exposure to wider occult currents from the Golden Dawn, Thelema, and Chaos Magick. These currents generally are the ones that the mainstream likes to borrow symbols and ideas from in order to project a sense of mystery or edge. These more modern currents were built upon the occultism of the medieval and Renaissance mages, who in turn borrowed from the ideas of dead or dying religions. However, most everything that makes up Western Occultism, as its own unique field of study, was firmly cemented with the release of the Rosicrucian Manifestos in the 17th century. This was last unique strain of thought that would in turn influence the birth of modern occultism in the 19th century.

So in other words, what aspects of the occult attracted you to it? Are you interested in working on your own or in a group? Sometimes forking over a small correspondence fee to a reputable group such as FLO or BOTA, will allow one to learn at a far greater and more directed pace than trying to figure out what books and supplies should be acquired next. If you are interested in Alchemy, as in lab work, it is expensive in the beginning to get started. Check the Alchemy thread for much more in depth details. Also supplies can be found in the supply thread.

Regardie's work is a good first, as is Frater U.D.'s High Magick two volume set. I do not have a pdf for High Magick but I will look around. Modern Magick: Twelve Lessons in the High Magikal Arts is one I started out with some 13 years ago. It isn't bad, but sometimes his writing style can be a bit cheesy.

I just started putting this together as you will see. It contains Frater U.D.'s High Magick vol 1 and Kraig's Modern Magick. After looking back through MM, it really is pretty new agey and cheesy in some parts, but there is some decent info in there. You will definitely notice the difference between HM and MM. Also, I don't know much about Kraig's background besides that he likes to write a lot. Frater U.D. on the other hand was associated with the Fraternitas Saturni, co-founded the IOT with Carroll, and was involved with that whole "Ice Magick War" with Helmut Barthel.

What's up, /occult/ and /fringe/.

You two boards have proven great influences on me over the past few years as I've broadened my spiritual horizons, and not only that, but you've driven untold traffic to my essays and supported me in my work. My occult studies have had a great impact on my novel, THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE, and to repay that influence I'd like to do a /fringe/ and /occult/ exclusive giveaway.

The first marketable thought to text device is released for public consumption in 2031. That same year, author Cassius Wagner will have a seizure. At least, that is what the novel says: the novel to which he awakens in fragments one morning after a late night of writing. This novel. Terrified to have a prophetic manuscript unfurling at his heels, his desperation to evade his fate prevents him from considering that his lover and editrix, Katherine Beauvoir, might be wrestling with a destiny of her own. Told in four psychedelic parts which peak with the fable of a sublingual Huntress as she fights to save her King, THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE blurs the speculative fiction and fantasy genres to explore the fabric of literature, and the boundaries of reality. /fringe/ and /occult/ will appreciate its intense use of occult and alchemical symbolism, particularly in the second half of the novel.

The book will be released on March 19th, 2018 in hardback, paperback and ebook forms, and I'm looking to give away some copies until then in hopes of acquiring 100 reviews. The rub is that I only have so many physical copies to give away, so the promotion will go as follows:

1. The first 2 posters from each board to email publicity@paintedblindpublishing.com with the subject 'Free Loosh from [Board Name]' and a physical address to where I can send the book will receive a HARDBACK copy of THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE, signed by the author.

2. The following 3 posters (again, from each board) to email will receive a signed PAPERBACK copy.

3. All subsequent entrants will receive ebook copies.

That is 10 total copies I am giving to you guys, not including those who receive Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Thanks anon, I sent you an email. I enjoyed your Delilah, My Woman. I need to write you a review for it as well.

I'm pleased to hear you enjoy it! Please do write a review when you get a chance; every one helps, and I recently had Amazon delete one reader's review because they were married to another reader, so both reviews were deemed trash and tossed out. Too bad, but more reviews will come along in time for DMW as long as I put focus on my other books.

You definitely have a gift for storytelling. A modern bard just like the bards of old, who were the weavers of magic through their tales. Since you are enjoying Robert M. Place's tarot, he has written a book that was just released at the beginning of this month. I haven't bought it yet, but it looks to delve into the history of tarot and explores the symbolism he used to build some of his decks.

Thank you for your kind words, Anon, and also thank you for the great book suggestion! I will be sure to get a copy. I am super fascinated by the alchemical tarot deck's symbolism and design. It feels to me much 'cleaner' than R/W and AC's decks. It is a much more intelligible conversation with the uspoken self.

Also, posters, I have had 1 person collect the hardback prize from this board, which means there are still 4 total books available to /occult/! Shoot me an email sometime and get yourself a copy.

This is actually really exciting. Here is the pdf of the book from the article, detailing a preview of the collection before it is released. This is a wealth of information and will possibly be on par with the RAMS digital alchemy library, with the added bonus of being free and covering more topics.

That's pretty cool. Sometimes though I'm afraid that we are just taking for granted that we will always have access to all this information, and that we are not preparing ourselves for a massive incident like what happened in Alexandria, when all those books were burned, I'm sure a week prior to the event nobody was thinking "we should make copies of these books."

I really hope the Internet continues to offer free information for at least a couple more decades so that humanity can benefit from it

Over in the US, St. Louis has an alchemical collection that belonged to General Ethan Allen Hitchcock. It is kept at the St. Louis Mercantile Library. One of these days I am going to eventually check it out. Makes me wonder how many of these private occult collections have made their way into larger libraries after the death of the owner, and nobody ever realizes they are there. Pdf is an overview of the Hitchcock collection.
