Illumination Even For Beginners,
By A Customer
This review is from: Kybalion: a Study of the Hermetic Philosophy of Ancient Egypt and Greece (Hardcover)
A very strange little book this, it was lent to me by a good friend and I thought it would take am weekend to read! At the time I failed to understand his analogy of the book to that of an onion. Now I understand. When you read this book you will abosrb a tiny fraction of the material and each time you choose to re-read a chapter, it's as if whole paragraphs are revealed to you for the firts time - a bit like removing successive layers from an onion skin. I find this book to be a foundation for any magik and although perhaps not easily understood in places, the more it is read, somehow the more you are allowed to understand. I now have had to return the book and am about to purchase a copy for myself. I agree with the others, it will be the best $14 I have spent for a very long time. A superb work and an absolute must for any collection worthy of the name.
