Although now long out of print and almost unobtainable, The Golden Star is such an unusual book that it deserves reviewing in the hope that there are still a few copies hidden away in bookshops around the world waiting for a good home.
Described as 'A Book For Initiates' and subtitled 'A Mystic Crescendo in Twelve Visions', it relates the most advanced Occult Teachings, from the remotest times of antiquity until today. Sincere students might search in vain through a thousand 'occult' books and not find a fraction of the remarkable information it contains.
The book begins with two Egyptian pilgrims, Ma-u and Ma-uti, watching a glorious sunset: "At one unforgettable moment the sun sent out five purple rays from between the massed clouds, which like a hand of benediction overspread the pair; whilst a path of molten gold stretched from Ra to them, as if inviting them to stride along that road to glory under His protecting hand. An invitation and Initiation into the Mysteries."
With the arrival of Neteru-Hem, 'A messenger from the Divine', the two seekers begin a spiritual journey, which is unlike anything else in Occult literature. Descending first into the 'Domains of Night', Ma-u and Ma-uti embark on a quest for knowledge under the guiding hands of Neteru-Hem. Each of the twelve chapters is prefaced by an inspired poem and associated with a particular precious stone. These are, in order: Jet, Alexandrite, Emerald, Black Opal, Sardonyx, Gold-Stone, Ruby, Sapphire, Moonstone, Crystal, Pearl and Diamond.
During their remarkable journey, the two pilgrims are taught about the real nature of matter and spirit and the ways in which these two entirely opposite principles are interwoven.Read more ›
Aptly described as 'A BOOK FOR INITIATES', The Golden Star expounds the most ADVANCED OCCULT TEACHINGS, yet in such a fascinating manner as to hold and extend the interest of the novice.
The Author divides his book into twelve 'Visions' which are typified not merely as levels of consciousness but also as states of matter above and below the level of our normal, waking consciousness and material thinking.
Ma-u and Ma-uti, the pair of Egyptian pilgrims who are destined to go so far under the guidance of Neteru-hem, the Divine Teacher of the Mysteries, are shadowy figures as human characters; but they represent more than the ideal companionship which is occasionally possible in this life.
As we follow their journey through the unseen and largely unknown realms of higher consciousness the reader is gradually introduced to the most advanced occult teachings, constituting a genuine initiation into the true laws and principles of spirit and matter and the secrets of man and the universe.
There has never been a time when the great Wisdom contained in this book was more vitally needed than today. As the Divine Messenger says: 'It is most necessary that the TRUE Teachings shall again be spread among mankind.'
Finally, those who have tried to obtain this scarce and precious book wull be delighted to learn that is now available to read online at thegoldenstar.org.
