Against the Pollution of the I: Selected Writings of Jacques Lusseyran (Used)
by Lusseyran, Jacques
Publisher: Morning Light Press
Book ID: 9781596750098, 159675009X
This inspiring new volume presents six little-known essays by the blind French author and Resistance leader Jacques Lusseyran, gathered together for the first time in English. Two of the essays delve more deeply into the human drama and heroism of his interment in a Nazi prison camp at Buchenwald, which Lusseyran described so movingly in his autobiography And There Was Light. Others explore the mystery and wonder of the world that his remarkable inner vision revealed, and offer a comparison of sight both with and without eyes.
Imagine experiencing senses far beyond the usual five-true and vivid sight without eyes, sound from trees, pressure from inanimate objects. Imagine reading the words of a man whom many consider a modern day saint. Against the Pollution of the I possesses the ingredients that make for success: the heroism of World War II, clear-sighted hope, and a full-hearted love of life. Four of the six essays are based on Lusseyran's experiences both during and after university life as a professor of literature and philosophy in Europe and in the United States. Three of the essays address being blind in a sighted society. Blindness, for Lusseyran, invited him to pay more attention, enabling him to discover the divinity of the world available to all people. And in this remarkable collection of essays, Lusseyran offers us a way to access our precious light-filled inner self -- our I -- and transform our lives!

Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath th...
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."

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...
