A Little Bit of Nothingness: 81 Observations on the Unnameable (New)
by Renz, Karl
Book ID: 9780982967898, 0982967896
Usually available in 3-5 days
The teachings of Karl Renz are a bit like Zen Koans -- those short statements that stop the mind's activity by contemplating their paradoxical meaning. But Karl will take you even further: contemplating his words have the power to turn the mind back upon itself, toward our original awareness of Being. A Little Bit of Nothingness is a unique juxtaposition between dialogues of Karl Renz and the eighty-one verses of the Tao Te Ching.
Here, the reality of the Tao -- the unnameable, original cause of all that is -- becomes evident as our own reality by the deep insights provided through Karl. The search for happiness usually takes us on an outward journey where we find ourselves identifying with everything except "that which we truly are." What we really need is to taste a "a little bit of nothingness" -- the absence of any kind of presence that we believe ourselves to be. This is who we really are: our true self. No one sees this as well as Karl Renz, the German mystic-artist who, for the last ten years, has travelled around the world pulling the rug out from under our hallowed beliefs, leaving us blissfully wanting even less.

Gnosis 19: The Trickster. A Journal of the Western Inner Traditions
"As long as we lie to ourselves, the Trickster will be with us.
He'll show up just when we least want him, to embarrass us on a
first date, to prove us fools in front of the learned company
we're trying to impress, to make us miss a power breakfast with
that all-important business contact."
- Richard Smoley, from the introduction

Grimoire of the Baron Citadel: The Book of the Four Ways.
Three Hands Press
As the governor of the Dead and the burial ground, the Baron Samedi is one of the most distinctive and potent loa of Haitian Vodou. An imposing figure in black raiment, he is most often pictured as a corpse. His other magical domains, less discussed in esoteric literature, include disruption, obscenity and -- importantly for the practicing sorcerer -- not only the arts of Magic but the very fabric of which it is made.
Emergent from the spiritual crossroads of traditional Vodou and English w...
