    Book Review – Grimoire of Aleister Crowley: Group Magick Rituals by Rodney Orpheus

    Book Review Grimoire of Aleister Crowley Group Magick Rituals by Rodney Orpheus 320 Pages     I have read four books on Aleister Crowley. To me, he has been this mythical person that I had heard of since I was a kid. I’ve wondered if the people writing about him are just writing to get published, or is there something that I am missing in their books. Most books I felt that I was having to struggle to get through or stay awake while reading. I am now looking into reading more of Lon Milo DuQuette’s works, after reading the forward he wrote for Rodney Orpheus’ book: Grimoire of Aleister…

      Emotions are…older than spoken language, and simply put, they are smarter than words, they’re deeper than any technique, and they can help you in ways you cannot imagine…Emotions are not created out of thin air, and they’re not created by your thoughts (emphasis mine); emotions have evolved over millions of years to help you understand and respond to the world. Emotions exist within you, and they are evoked, not created, by specific stimuli. -Karla McLare   Recently, I was traveling and watching the news from one of the busiest airports in the United States when I saw that the World Health Organization had declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

    Book Review – The Hidden Goddess: The Quest for the Divine Feminine in the Judeo-Christian Tradition-from Asherah to Mary Magdalene by Laurie Martin-Gardener

    Book Review The Hidden Goddess The Quest for the Divine Feminine in the Judeo-Christian Tradition-from Asherah to Mary Magdalene by Laurie Martin-Gardener 104 Pages   Evidence of Goddess worship goes back 25,000 years. In this book, Laurie Martin-Gardner presents well-researched evidence of the goddess’ wide worship among early Hebrew people citing archaeological and Biblical evidence.

Although this evidence remains highly contested among traditional Hebrew scholars that view Yahweh as the one and true god, this makes sense when linked with what we know about ancient Hebrews who saw life…
