Description

Yes, Mysticism is both Modern and Practical.

Too often the Mystical is seen as 'airy fairy' and disconnected from the "Real" World.

What is this so-called "Real" World? You think you know it as that which you can touch and feel, the world you plant your feet on and that feeds you. You think it's really solid stuff.

The "Real" World

You're wrong! The "Real" World isn't really solid stuff, and the Mystical is actually the very stuff of reality - the far bigger reality that is as modern as tomorrow, and as practical as money in the bank. The Mystical is about actually understanding how things really work and how you can benefit from personal exploration and experience in what some people refer to as "the Magical Universe" where truly real things happen and affect you in this world you thought was such a solid thing.

This Magical Universe where real things happen is the same universe studied by modern scientists at the cutting edge of quantum physics and consciousness, and that has been studied for ages by mystics, philosophers, Kabbalists, shamans, hermeticists, yogis, alchemists - all scientists exploring those dimensions lying behind, below, inside, and above what you once thought of as the only "real" world.

Using Esoteric Technology

It is be means of various 'esoteric' technologies that you can actually reach in -- behind the scenes so to speak -- to touch, work with or even change the inner reality that manifests in the outer world. These technologies have been developed out of many differing perceptions of the inner reality that are as equally true and valid as are the many ways to describe the glory of a sunset, the beauty of a rose, or the glow of love.

Scientists and Mystics have developed many models to understand, explore and relate to this hidden world, each as different and yet the same as the brilliant facets on a cut diamond. These have names and their validity is enhanced by their attraction to you and the beauty you find in them. Certain of them 'speak to you' as others do not and it is your choice and your opportunities to work with those that strike the right cord within you.

The Many Pathways to Enlightenment

In this concise yet deep and insightful book many Pathways to Enlightenment are explored and their inner reality models described & illustrated with diagrams and charts -- Alchemy, Ascension, Buddhism, Christianity, Druidism, Hermetic Ceremonial Magic, Hinduism, Judaism, Martial Arts, Paganism, Shamanism, Shinto, Sufism, Thelema, Theosophy, Witchcraft, Yoga and more -- accompanied by many practical exercises, sacred texts and rituals for you to fully experience their power to move you between the worlds. An extensive glossary of mystical terms facilitates your understanding across these many systems to build your personal realization.
