We receive a great many emails from our readers. Some ask us specific questions, many of which get added to our Occult FAQ (frequently asked questions). Others have contributed their thoughts in the form of articles and short stories (see sidebar). Many more write simply to say 'thank you', and these form the majority of the comments we have published below. The most recent comments can be found on our current Readers's Comments page.

"Occult Mysteries is so important to many people as the stepping stone across the river of ignorance towards the Path of True Light. At Christmas, it seems a perfect time to once again thank you for your hard work and kind service. May we know each other in that Land of Light when the time comes."

"I feel like I have been searching and searching, and somehow this massive site has slipped past me until now. I don't even know how that is possible, considering how much time I spend reading about this sort of thing. Finding your site feels like I have just stumbled upon a five-course meal after eating nothing but scraps for years."

"I have expressed my gratitude for this glorious website before, but simply cannot overemphasize how much the articles therein instruct and inspire me. Seldom a day passes without my perusing your many wonderful words of wisdom, humour, and Light. With all my heart I thank you for the service you give to those of us who so need a sensible path—for, as they say, common sense ain't too common!"

"Reflections of happy childhood endeavours to skim that carefully selected flat stone skipping across the calmest possible water. Five maybe six skips before sinking from sight but remaining as a victorious memory to survive for four and a half decades. To reappear on the reading of your article on "contemplating Stones." Now I want to better that memory, seven skips maybe. The joy of it is that child is still me but through others he understands intent. The stone is you, is me, I threw myself, my intent, across the placid water of all. Throw no stones of hurt for just maybe you are throwing and hurting yourself, and that my friends is not sound wisdom."

"This week I have sent emails to The Order of the Golden Dawn and to the main Rosicrucians AMORC. Both are worthless to me. Time and time again during my searching for the truth your website kept coming up and after finally looking at the rest of your website, instead of just your book list, I have come to the conclusion that you guys seem to be the only ones who have solid information and have not fallen into the very many traps along the way that come with seeking the truth. So I just said all that to complement you in the highest respect I can."

"I have just come to find your site recently and I felt the need to sincerely thank you for everything! I was so caught up with the flights of fancy that every conspiracy theorist drools over, but still kept searching because in my gut I knew that I hadn't yet found what I was searching for.

After powering through what is probably half of your content in 24 hours I have cleared so much of the cluttered junk that I had believed out of my mind. Having worked on the fluidity of my belief structures from a very young age, I am lucky it was so easy to discard what has no purpose for me to be able to restructure my beliefs to best prepare for learning truth.

I'm over being fed drivel that is just there to feed our want for excitement and fantasy. Which I guess I am grateful for in one sense as it has made reading truth here much easier to recognize. Thank you again!"

"I am another lurker! I think I have always been a searcher of truth and knowledge since a very young age. I was raised as a Christian but there were several things about the Church that I either couldn't grasp, did not believe or did not understand. How you could only go to heaven after asking Christ into your heart? How did Jesus really become a God? How could a loving God possibly be the same one who could destroy people because they made him angry? There was another aspect about the Church that I could never really accept and that was the hypocrisy that I saw from the members.

"I quit going to church because I didn't want to deal with the hypocrisy and the tenets of a faith that I could not believe in. I still had lots of questions and I studied the history of the Church and world civilisations as voraciously as I was able. I started reading about world religions and pagan religions and any other information of an occult and/or esoteric basis. I have always been a believer in a God or Divine presence. But I did not truly know how to explain it when I didn't believe in Christianity any longer. And Christianity did not provide any answers. I secretly looked to Wicca or Goddess worship as a means of finding my answers, but I know now that it was only a stepping stone to where I am today. It wasn't until the last 10 years that I finally began to put the coincidences and information from my life together to grasp the answers I was seeking. Your website has been like a breath of fresh air. It has finally provided me true answers and knowledge that I have been looking for, I feel, all my life. Thank you for your information and the truth that you have provided to a lost and searching soul."

"I just have completed an overview of the site and my first pass of the on-line studies course. I am in deep appreciation for this comprehensive creation. I had written a poem which included a thought about what felt to be similarity of magic and mysticism and then googled the two words together. I did not expect to ever see such a broad and roomy portal as this! Thank You for your Extension of Wisdom, Love and Light!"

"Like many of your readers I have been in the 'occult jungle'—perhaps I still am. I began with Yoga until I encountered the word 'God', a concept that was 'taboo' for me at the time. As a child I was told not to think too much about God. The Church and God meant the same to me and I regarded the Bible as a fairy-tale with no scientific basis fit only for the superstitious. Despite this, I still searched for divine truths that were not connected with the Church and not as alien as the Indian teachings were to me. Unsurprisingly, this time I stumbled upon Wicca. After wading through many books and avoiding rituals, because I still couldn't find the entire meaning I sought, I sold all my books and led a happy life.

"Then the wheel of fortune took a turn for the worse but I found consolation in 'A Course in Miracles' (ACIM). As I read the book the concept of God began to gain credence with me. Although I wanted to start the training, I still looked for critical voices against ACIM on the Internet. The dangers associated with the 'solipsism' which characterises much of the 'New Age' rhetoric in the book held me back from starting the course.

"My further procrastination then led me into the strange world of conspiracy theories which encouraged me to research what the occult was really all about. During this search I came across your website and I am amazed at how long I have been reading it!

"I am currently enjoying The Golden Star and working my way through your Occult Studies Course. In addition, I make time each day for meditation, though not yet as 'thoroughly' as I would like. Nonetheless it has helped me a great deal to allow new ideas and inspiration to enter into my thinking."

"Your article on lurking finally gave me the confidence to reach out and not only ask you questions that have been lingering in my mind over the past 6 months, but to also say thank you for the service and road you have been providing to those who are genuine seekers after truth."

Whilst I am blown away with your website I had made up my mind last week everything on the Internet was regulated and there would be no real wisdom to be found on the net as the Government would not allow it. I am like others who have made comments on how wonderful the knowledge is that you have put on your site. I feel like I have really, really found home."

"English is not my first language. I've been on the search for wisdom and self-improvement for as long as I can remember back to my childhood and almost killing myself for being too weak and blind. For the first time I really feel something inside me and things make sense and all that by reading only a couple of your articles. So, I in the depths of my heart, I thank you."

(Reader from Estonia)


"Just a quick note to express my humble gratitude for this magnificent website. I have been reading your wonderful articles for many months now and always come away with my spirits lifted and my mind fed. I love the humour sprinkled throughout, particularly, of course, the discourses between Bombast and Flitterflop. The Quest of Ruru had a profound effect on me, as did The Golden Star. Your articles are informative to say the least. I could go on and on with my enthusiastic praise, but will simply say, with all my heart, thank you. Your work is deeply appreciated."

(Reader from the USA)


"Some common theme seems to be that the occult knowledge and the true powers behind is only available to the sages, mages, initiated, enlightened, the prime rib or the wise, the big man on top of the chain of adepts so to speak. You get my point. That knowledge is forbidden to be shared with the public to whom the name vulgar are commonly given. The coarse, the violent and the ignorant and stupid. If that knowledge is shared with them there's no telling what they can do with it. I mean they can start wars and cause poverty and misery, am I right? Well pardon and excuse my French but that's cowardly and extremely arrogant and selfish. I apologize deeply for taking liberties, my anger is foul and it comes from a place of deep disappointment."

It is pity this reader either hasn't read our explanations of the reasons for secrecy in occult matters or understood them. However dreadful the effects of the misuse and abuse of some scientific discoveries have been and are, these only destroy bodies, whereas the misuse of occult knowledge destroys the mind and even the immortal Soul.

"English is not my native language and I found it easy to read and understand the information. Since the discovery of this website I feel I'm on the right path. Finally, for the first time in many years I feel I'm making progress. . .Your website is like a hidden treasure between all the bad info on the Internet."

"The biggest gift for me (and there are a multitude) is that each time I revisit your articles they keep offering me something positive."

"I've been visiting your website for quite some time now and wanted to personally thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating it. As an individual who has suffered significantly from a heavy heart and burdened mind due to certain past events, it means the world to me to have access to such beneficial study materials."

"I wanted to start with a sincere thank you. When I was a teenager, I was invited to my math teachers house. There she introduced us to purity and truth. The event I remember most was a golden lasso of light extending out from me and encircling her as a blessing, then returning to my throat area. She was later removed from the school for being "too close to the students". I lost the thread and have been searching ever since.

"I truly cannot find the words to describe how thankful I am for the most beautiful website I have ever come across. I absolutely love, and appreciate everything that you guys do."

(Reader from the USA)


"Congratulations on 4 years of running your wonderful website! Before I found occult mysteries it was as if there was a void deep within my spiritual life, I searched through all sorts of religions and new age numpty with no lasting satisfaction, it wasn't until I found your website that I finally felt I had found some real genuine teachings that I could assimilate in my life!"

(Reader from Canada)

(Reader from the UK)


"Thanks for providing this fantastic website which is like a ray of light in a storm of utter clutter. I have found myself laughing and nodding to a lot of the information presented here as it explains pretty much exactly my journey up until this point."

(Reader from the USA)

(Reader from the UK)

(Reader from the Czech Republic)


"I'm not new to occult studies, as I have been reading on and off for quite some time. The thing about your articles are they get right to point and mention things in a clear and concise way, there's no nonsense or beating around the bush."
