Book Description

1 Mar 2000 Key of It All (Book 2)
The Western Mysteries (previously published as The Key of It All, Book II: The Western Mysteries), by David Allen Hulse, is perhaps the most comprehensive, in-depth description of various aspects of the Western magickal tradition ever published. The uniting factor of this book is language. It begins with a discussion of the mysteries of the Greek alphabet, followed by the different forms of the Runes, and goes on to describe the mystical secrets of Latin. and then Enochian, where you will discover, for the first time ever, the correctly constructed Watchtower system. The book also includes the mysteries of the Tarot, a pictorial language, and it describes the development of the esoteric Tarot, how to do readings, and the significance of the symbolism on the Tarot cards. It concludes with the English language and its relationship to the Tarot, Enochian, and more. The introduction to The Western Mysteries serves as a complete introduction to the magickal tradition of the West. You will learn about the evolution of thought concerning the Elements, astrology, magick squares, geomancy, words of power, and more. You will find that each section of this book is a key that unlocks the meaning behind another of the magickal languages that you can relate to your own spiritual system. It is ideal for a beginning student to explore the mysteries of Western magick. It is a necessary tool for more advanced students, as it has collected hundreds of charts and lists which clarify and identify the similarities and differences between various systems. This is a reference book you will study over and over. The volume of information revealed makes The Western Mysteries an instant classic and a necessity for any spiritual practitioner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Deatiled overview of Western Magical systems 14 July 2002
By A Customer
A good book for the serious magician looking into languages, symbols and numerology. Covers tarot symbolism in depth, egyptian/coptic hieroglyphs, Latin and some interesting sections on runes - Norse and Ogham. Surprisingly being 'western' this volume does not include Kabbalistic Hebrew ( to be found in the companion volume the Eastern Mysteries ), but it does go through the Tarot symbolism of the Golden Dawns rider waite Tarot deck in detail.
The book is high detailed and is a storehouse of numerological information, with some hints of interpretions of Crowleys Thelemic 93 current here and there ( also in the 'eastern mysteries ).
I would recommend this book for the intermediate/advanced student because I think they would gain the most from it, although each section is a good introduction if you arent familiar with the basics, yet it quickly becomes complex.
For those studying comparative religion or interested in various magical system the book with its companion the eastern mysteries is a storehouse of information, definately a reference work rather than a practical working-from style book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Diamond from david Allen Hulse 11 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Western Mysteries by David Allen Hulse holds within its pages an enormous amount of information covering keys 7-13 of The Western Mysteries: Greek, Coptic,Runes, Latin, Enochian, Tarot and English (keys 1-6 are covered in 'The Eastern Mysteries'. in a similar way to some of the difficulties I had with understanding, when reading the Eastern Mysteries, I found it a bit mind blowing at first and had to re-read certain parts in order for me to assimilate and understand what I was reading however, this again was due to my lack of knowledge and understanding rather than to how the information was written. I have now learned a great deal from this book and refer to it often. The knowledge and wisdom found within its pages is an inspiration. since reading this book ( along with The Eastern Mysteries) I have felt greatly motivated to delve more deeply into the mysteries of life. The Western Mysteries (Key of It All) 2nd (second) annotated editio Edition by Hulse, David Allen published by Llewellyn Publications,U.S. (2000)

5.0 out of 5 stars Author's review of The Western Mysteries 28 Oct 2000
By David Hulse - Published on Amazon.com
"The Western Mysteries", though a companion volume to "The Eastern Mysteries", was originally part of one larger work entitled "The Key of It All". When I first submitted my manuscript to Llewellyn Publishing in the late 1980's, it totalled over 1400 pages. One section was deleted from the beginning which dealt exclusively with the Qabalah found in Aleister Crowley's "The Book of the Law". But the remaining 13 chapters were faithfully typeset with little changes to the original manuscript. However as the book was typeset my editor, David Godwin, discovered that the book was larger than expected. So at the end of the 6th chapter dealing with the mystical nature of Chinese and the I Ching, the book was abruptly put to press, and divided into two parts, the first subtitled "The Eastern Mysteries" and the second being "The Western Mysteries". This caused a few minor problems for me. One, the introduction written for the whole book, depended on the 7th key, Greek, to make sense. But now it would have to serve as an introduction to the first of two volumes. Second, the remaining pages forming the second volume would not be large enough to justify a second book. So from the period of the winter of 1993 to the summer of 1994, I created almost half of the second volume as it now stands. Among the last minute additions were the Christian Number symbolism found in "The New Testament", the ancient key to the Egyptian Hieroglyphics found in the writings of Horapollo, the analysis of the Qabalistic symbols found in the Waite Tarot deck, and a new introduction of over 100 pages that would include the Aztec and Mayan calender systems, the esoteric nature of astrology, the art of geomancy, and the Masonic tradition of the lost word. What was intended for this second volume was a complete analysis of the Cube of Space, but that would eventually see print as a separate volume (just published by Samuel Weiser, Inc. as "New Dimensions for the Cube of Space"). One other section was intended for the last key on English, and that was a complete analysis of Modern Numerology. This, instead, became a separate booklet published by Llewellyn under the title "The Truth About Numerology". In the end, dividing my original work titled "The Key of It All", into two volumes that would eventually become "The Eastern Mysteries" and "The Western Mysteries", improved the scope and depth of the most detailed study yet in regards to the sacred symbolism of numbers as concealed in the alphabets of the ancient world, both East and West.

5.0 out of 5 stars oustanding work 28 Dec 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I've got both the "Eastern" and "Western" mysteries and while I won't pretend to understand half of what was written in each, both are outstanding reference books that one can grasp even if one doesn't have much knowledge of the occult.

I found it useful for looking up symbols and seeing more similarities between cultures than I had previously thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Hulse is a Genius 12 Dec 2010
By Wizardiaoan - Published on Amazon.com
David Hulse is my favorite living adept, he is an absolute genius. I first found his two Mysteries volumes in 1996 when attending college. They furthered my understanding of esoteric philosophy to such a high degree when they came out I may never thank him enough. Their knowledge and extreme clarity along with personal correspondence allowed me to comprehend the magickal universe to such a great extent I was propelled across the abyss in 2008. I may never be able to reciprocate the blessing I received from the magickal force that is David Hulse.

There is a ton of new material in the series: I am continually in awe with the Sanskrit chapter. It is a beautiful contribution to the magickal tradition as a whole, particularly in regards number philosophy and grammatometria, it abounds in correlations. The sheer breadth of these volumes is commendable, I only regret they are not available in a hardbound edition!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comparative Cultural Numerology Mysteries Encyclopedia 14 May 2007
By LAVERN J. DE WILDE - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Western and Eastern Mysteries (Key of It All) Comparative Cultural Numerology Mysteries Encyclopedia will connect those who are still searching for the complete comparative "opus," which is the backbone of the numerology mysteries.

Chapter 13 of the English Language numerology, in the "Western Mysteries," is the door through which one can enter, to complete the key through which universal understanding and connection can be earned. Through translating (words) tongues into the English language alphabet words, and further, into their simple English numbers, the inner eye expands its understanding.

The serious numbers student, through the simple numbers method, mentioned in Chapter 13, of Western Mysteries, can further verify their own destiny through their name and birthdate numbers, by further understanding that there is a nine-year cycle for each letter of one's name. Each nine-year name-alphabet letter number will be the individual "law of attraction," by attracting to one experiences.

Hulse confirmed his experiences through "alphabet numbers." Which you can do as well. The secret for positive experiences is to use positive words and their numerological correlation.

Further, within the 9-year cycle, Each person has "tri-mester numbers," which can be verified through the numerology of names, addresses, and experiences correlating in a particular period with synchonistic numbers.

As Hulse has stated in "Western Mysteries," the English language and its simple numbers from 1-9, allows the serious student to develop the inner eye to verify and see how it is that the macro and micro metaphysics connect with the physics of macro and micro experiences.

Both Western and Eastern Mysteries (The Key to It All), provides the connection the earnest student of numbers wisdom has earned.
