LES VRAIS SECRETS DE SORCELLERIE

Vous avez dû, très certainement, vous poser la question, ou peut-être allez-vous le faire mais d’où proviennent ces procédés magiques, qui nous les a enseignés, comment sont-ils parvenus jusqu’à nous? Pour vous répondre, nous disposons d’un certain nombre de choses: la tradition orale, le bouche à oreille si vous préférez, d’une part, mais surtout un certain nombre d’écrits, de références s’enfonçant dans un très lointain passé. De façon simple et en dépoussiérant ces textes de tout le fatras ésotérique qui leur fait perdre une bonne partie de leur clarté et de leur crédibilité, nous pouvons dire ceci: il y a plusieurs dizaines de milliers d’années, des messagers (des anges si vous préférez) seraient descendus sur terre venant d’une lointaine planète. On ne connaît pas le but exact de leur mission, en admettant qu’ils en aient eu une à remplir. Ce que les écrits nous transmettent c’est qu’ils firent sur terre un certain nombre de choses qui, apparemment, leur étaient interdites puisqu’ils en furent punis par ceux qui les avaient envoyés. Si vous prenez le livre de la Genèse, vous y découvrirez cette phrase : « Lorsque les hommes eurent commencé à se multiplier sur la surface de la Terre, et que des filles leur furent nées, les fils de Dieu virent que les filles des hommes étaient belles, et ils en prirent pour femmes parmi toutes celles qu’ils choisirent. »

LA PRATIQUE DE LA MAGIE EVOCATOIRE

Dans ce livre, il montre les étapes suivantes du Sentier Magique à tous les étudiants qui ont déjà pu commencer leur développement grâce aux moyens délivrés dans le premier ouvrage. Il souligne clairement que sur ce Chemin n'existe aucun arrêt, aucun repos, car ceux-ci seraient, sans aucun doute, une rechute dans la stagnation, l'ignorance et, en conséquence, dans l'obscurité spirituelle. En effet, il ne peut y avoir que des progrès vers ces "Hauteurs Illuminées"; celles-ci sont le réconfort de tous ceux qui n'épargnent pas leur effort, prenant en mains, courageusement et inflexiblement, leur ascension spirituelle.

Les Trois Yeux De La Connaissance

Ce livre traite d'une quête du savoir globale ou « complète » — quête visant non pas à quelque fi-nalité en matière de savoir, mais plutôt à un certain équilibre au sein de la quête elle-même. Il y sera question de science empirique, de philosophie, de psychologie et de religion transcendantale; de connaissance sensorielle, de connaissance symbolique, et de connaissance spirituelle; et nous nous efforcerons de voir comment toutes ces disciplines s'agencent de façon harmonieuse.

The immortals of Meluha

Shiva! The Mahadev. The God of Gods. Destroyer of Evil. Passionate lover. Fierce warrior. Consummate dancer. Charismatic leader. All-powerful, yet incorruptible. Quick wit, accompanied by an equally quick and fearsome temper. Over the centuries, no foreigner who came to our land — conqueror, merchant, scholar, ruler, traveller — believed that such a great man could possibly exist in reality. They assumed that he must have been a mythical God, whose existence could be possible only in the realms of human imagination. Unfortunately, this belief became our received wisdom. But what if we are wrong? What if Lord Shiva was not a figment of a rich imagination, but a person of flesh and blood? Like you and me. A man who rose to become godlike because of his karma. That is the premise of the Shiva Trilogy, which interprets the rich mythological heritage of ancient India, blending fiction with historical fact. This work is therefore a tribute to Lord Shiva and the lesson that his life teaches us. A lesson lost in the depths of time and ignorance. A lesson, that all of us can rise to be better people. A lesson, that there exists a potential god in every single human being. All we have to do is listen to ourselves. The Immortals of Meluha is the first book in the trilogy that chronicles the journey of this extraordinary hero. Two more books are to follow: The Secret of the Nagas and The Oath of the Vayuputras.

Beyond belief: Skepticism, science and the paranormal

Whether ghosts, astrology or ESP, up to 80 per cent of the population believes in one or more aspects of the paranormal. Such beliefs are entertaining, and it is tempting to think of them as harmless. However, there is mounting evidence that paranormal beliefs can be dangerous - cases of children dying because parents rejected orthodox medicine in favour of alternative remedies, and 'psychics' who trade on the grief of the bereaved for personal profit and gain. Expenditure on the paranormal runs into billions of dollars each year. In Beyond Belief: Skepticism, Science and the Paranormal Martin Bridgstock provides an integrated understanding of what an evidence-based approach to the paranormal - a skeptical approach - involves, and why it is necessary. Bridgstock does not set out to show that all paranormal claims are necessarily false, but he does suggest that we all need the analytical ability and critical thinking skills to seek and assess the evidence for paranormal claims.
