The Book of Secrets
Author: Daniel Pineda
Publisher: Weiser Books
Category: New Age Level: All
From the strange symbols on a one-dollar bill to the secret signs of the Knights templar and Freemasons, invisible societies, and the world of magic and alchemy, The Book of Secrets (Weiser Books/March 2011) is a comprehensive introduction to the world of secret and esoteric knowledge throughout history. It offers a doorway into the initiated secret traditions of the fascinating unseen spiritual world: its symbols, secret societies, and seers.
From the Introduction:
To search for secret knowledge is to journey into the soul of humanity, for what is more deeply buried or obscured than the very center of ourselves? The word occult has, in modern Western society, dark and sometimes evil connotations; however, it simply means “hidden” or “secret.” Any knowledge or method that is not easily perceived or obvious may be called occult. It will, for many, bring to mind images of black robes, ritual sacrifice, and communion with dangerous spiritual forces. This popular image of occultism has distracted many from the central reason for, and tenet of, the initiated secret tradition that in many ways has not changed since the dawn of civilization – that Man can become God.
Readers will discover:
• Key Concepts: the Great Work, The Universal Force, Polarity, the Four Elements, Magick and Mysticism, Esoteric Anatomy, Qabalah, Alchemy, Astrology, the Astral Plane, and more.
• Symbolism: More than 100 secret symbols, words, objects, including their meanings and the secret powers they invoke.
• Secret Societies and Holy Orders: The gatekeepers and the transmitters of sacred knowledge such as Freemasons, O.T.O., Cathars, Templars, Assassins. Pindeda places them all in history and geography and explains who they are/were and what they stood for.
• Luminaries and Seers: More than 200 legends and historical personages such as Hermes Trismegistus, Jesus, Siddartha, Osiris, and other seers from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the 19th and 20th centuries.
