To those who hesitate upon the Path to the Light
There is a reason why this webpage is plain, simple and unadorned. It is because the Sublime Occult Mysteries are plain, simple and unadorned. Complexity is ever the enemy of Truth, both in Spiritual Teachings and in life in general. Do not let the troubles of earthly life, nor the opinions of others, however well-meaning, neither the doubts which beset the mind from within and without at times, deter you from finding the TRUE LIGHT which beckons the genuine seeker Home.
There is also a reason why the only image on this webpage is a Golden Cross. For the Cross is one of the grandest and most profound of all Occult symbols which belongs to all Mankind and not only to the Christian Church as some suppose. You can read more about the Symbolism of the Cross in a little-known book called The Golden Star by J Michaud PhD, from which the short extract below has been taken.
"The active Logos is represented by the cross with arms of equal length. It has been used at all times in all parts of the world and is still used today by the members of the Secret Order. Great power flows through this Sign; it may flow from one person to another; or from on High when a genuine seeker makes the sign upon himself. It helps him to remember that when the Name of God is invoked no evil shall befall us. In this way it becomes a kind of miniature creed, for as we touch in succession the forehead, the solar plexus, the left shoulder and finally the right shoulder, we remember that all the Holy Messengers came down from the Father to the earth-plane; that they descended from earth to the lower Astral World (the left-hand path), and proceeded from there to the right-hand of the Father in Heaven; there to dwell in glory for ever.
"It is well to use this sign often, for a man is sometimes forgetful of the protection he derives from dwelling upon the ideal worlds of God, which aids him to drive away all unwholesome thoughts and influences, especially when he is tempted to give way to irritation, or selfish and other undesirable thoughts. The man whose mind dwells always on the higher levels may not need these reminders; but there are very few such men, and the average person will receive much help from this small ceremonial action, which will drive away all unpleasant influences and retain all that is good.
"Each time we feel that we have lost touch, for the time being, with the utter love, peace, understanding and unity of the Father, we should make the Holy Sign of the Cross, and ask the Lord to turn to us again and give us His protection and guidance. When reading the sacred and holy books we should make the sign of the Cross three times, and thus dedicate our mind, lips and heart to the work of spreading the Truth, and at the same time open up the three centres of the forehead, throat and breast to the holy influence which is about to be poured out. In this way the Holy Writings become centres of Force, surrounded by an aura of reverential and grateful thought, which will stimulate the mental and spiritual faculties. If before opening such a book we make the sign of the Cross upon it, we will unlock the door of the treasure house from which Occult Knowledge and Truth will flow and enter our being. It will bring the lower self into harmony with the higher, and thus it aids the work of the Master within, in that he can now pour out the vials of Wisdom upon the thirsting mind, seeking union with the Soul, which leads to God's Domains. After study of the Holy Writings, a final sign of the Cross should be made, which will produce a general intensification of the work done, and strengthen the link between Mind and Soul."
