Ancient Wisdom and Occult Truth


The aim of this website is to provide the SERIOUS seeker after TRUTH with FACTS. There is too much speculation, fantasy and opinion masquerading as Occult Truth in the world today, and we do not wish to add to it.

We do not claim any mysterious predecessors, titles or qualifications. We do not promote any particular religion, creed or personal agenda. Nor are we selling anything for commercial gain. Our ONLY aim is to present the Ancient Wisdom which has been taught by all the great Teachers, Messengers and Philosophers of the past with clarity and simplicity. Wisdom that all may freely partake of according to the strength of their thirst for Occult Truth and their capacity for understanding it.

You can read more about the Ancient Wisdom in the sidebar on your right.
A warning to the Vulgar* seeking occult 'thrills'

There are no 'spells', 'curses', 'magical rituals' or similar rubbish which passes for the 'occult' in the imagination of the vulgar to be found here. Nor will you find any information on how to obtain money, power, fame or sex through the 'occult' here. If you are looking for any of these please try your luck elsewhere!

(*from Latin vulgaris—belonging to the multitude or common people)

Metaphysical Investigations

The following metaphysical investigations are based on Occult Enigmas by J Michaud PhD, published in 1939 and now virtually unobtainable. They present the true facts of occult science with clarity and simplicity, and rest upon the firm foundation of the Ancient Wisdom—gathered together over untold thousands of years by the Sages and Philosophers of both East and West.

What distinguishes these articles from the mass of material purporting to teach the 'ancient mysteries' is that they make no misleading or fantastic claims, such as we may find in the teachings of various modern writers, who have the audacity to meddle with the age old Wisdom by superimposing upon it the unhealthy imaginings of their own untrained minds. Each article provides wide-ranging discussions of, and answers to, many of the questions asked by genuine seekers after Truth—answers which are hard to find; many of which cannot be found in ANY books.

If you wish to reap the fullest PERSONAL benefit from these metaphysical investigations, we suggest you read them in the following CONSECUTIVE order:
