A Primer of Theosophy: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is a compilation of multiple sub-subjects ranging from the psychic arts to ethics, to the afterlife. It is a strictly theosophical introductory guide with a fairly long bibliographic inclusion and a half dozen entries regarding major figures of theosophy at that time.
The mystic lore itself is mostly beginner material but it would be hard to find a work better suited to...
Epicurus: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This intermediate work is presumably the final creation series title I will edit; it is a combination of basic Epicurean philosophy, basic life story of the philosopher himself, and criticisms by him of his critics as well as theirs of him. It's well written, and at times humorous, Epicurus calling one of his rivals a "mollusk" comes to mind as being particularly funny against the...
The Heart of Things: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
The second volume of lore in Edward Farnsworths' three part series, "Heart of Things" is much like "The Deeper Mysteries." the content is a bit less variable and more focused on astrological, zodiacal, categorical materials. It speaks at some length on dreams, spirits, the meaning of life, the dimensions, and many other subjects, usually in three or four pages apiece.
Gleanings of a Mystic: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This book is a fairly comprehensive guide to the philosophical views of Heindel, of Rosicrucian renown. More a compiling of short essays than a single work, it was collected together posthumously, with subject material ranging from reincarnation and mortality, to initiation and enlightenment, as well as plenty of asides into the history of mankind and existence, Atlantis, and...
The Spiritual Guidance of Man and Mankind: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
Clairvoyance: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
Mystics of the Renaissance: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
The Supernatural: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
The Ideals of Theosophy: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
Death and the Afterlife: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
The Divine Mystery: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
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...
The Kybalion: Now Available!by Styxhexenhammer666
This fine work is quite well known and is a book I'd planned to edit for a couple of years, having heard of its existence but never actually read it. Well written if a bit dense, and quite enigmatic, the Kybalion purports to have been created by three initiates into the Hermetic secret, and contains multiple sections ruminating on the nature of existence, vibration of matter, the...
