Bushido The Soul of Japan By Inazo Nitobe

Direct Download OR Buy

Bushido: The Soul of Japan written by Inazo Nitobe is, along with the classic text Hagakure by Tsunetomo Yamamoto (1659-1719), a study of the way of the samurai. A best-seller in its day, it was read by many influential foreigners, among them President Theodore Roosevelt, President John F. Kennedy and Robert Baden-Powell. It may well have shaped Baden-Powell's ideas on the Boy Scout movement he founded.

Nitobe originally wrote Bushido: The Soul of Japan in English (1900), in Malvern, Pennsylvania.

As Japan underwent deep transformations of its traditional lifestyle while forging into a modern nation, Nitobe engaged in an inquiry into the ethos of his nation, and the result of his meditations was this seminal work. A fine stylist in English, he wrote many books in that language, which earned him a place among the best known Japanese writers of his age.

He found in Bushido, the Way of the Warrior, the sources of the virtues most admired by his people: rectitude, courage, benevolence, politeness, sincerity, honor, loyalty and self-control. His approach to his task was eclectic and far-reaching.

He also delved into the other indigenous traditions of Japan, such as Buddhism, Shintoism, Confucianism and the moral guidelines handed down over hundreds of years by Japan's samurai and sages. In addition, he sought similarities and contrasts by citing not only Western philosophers and statesmen, but also the shapers of European and American thought and civilization going back to the Romans, the Greeks and Biblical[citation needed] times. He found a close resemblance between the samurai ethos of what he called Bushido and the spirit of medieval chivalry and the ethos of ancient Greece, as we observe it in books like the Iliad of Homer.

Atom Smashing Power Of Mind By Charles Fillmore

In the last paragraph of Chapter VIII the author gives his readers a clear formula for dealing with the problem of the atom:

The great and most important issue before the people today is the development of man's spiritual mind and through it unity with God, The taproot of all our confusion is our failure to use our mind intelligently. We can only think as God would have us think by adjusting our thoughts to divine ideas. Religion and all that it implies in prayer and recognition of God in idea and manifestation is the one and only way out of the chaos in which we find ourselves. We must therefore begin at once to develop this unity with the Father-Mind by incorporating divine ideas into all that we think and speak.

Codex Saerus (The Black Book of Satan) By Christos Beest (Richard Mould)

The "Codex Saerus" (The Black Book of Satan) is a ritual book of the Order of Nine Angles, free domain (free from copyright) as stated by Christos Beest (Richard Mould). In different parts, they were sold in the form of typewritten manuscript, and only for the few. I made of it a readable manuscript for easy use in temples and gatherings. I am in possession of the master copies on "Microsoft Words." This, was also in agreement with Xaphan (J.F, Houston, Texas), leader of a temple.

According to tradition, each Master or Mistress who was responsible for a particular Satanic Temple or group, was given on his or her assumption of that responsibility, a copy of the Black Book of Satan. The Black Book contained the basic Satanic rituals, instructions relating to ceremonial magick in general. It was the duty of the Master or Mistress to keep this book safe, and non-Initiates of the Temple were forbidden to see it. Copies were forbidden to be made, although Initiates above the grade of External Adept were allowed to see and read the Temple copy.

Mental growth and control (1902) By Nathan Oppenheim

The growth of character.--The mind as a machine.--The power of attention.--What association means.--The uses of instinct.--Memory and its development.--The bonds of habit.--Hypnotism and suggestion.--Imagination, the enlightener.--The emotions and their education.--Reasoning, the guide.--Will, the controller

Cektain books of counsel, teaching young men and women how best to shape their ideals and their lives, played an honorable part in the literature of the nineteenth century, particularly in America, where aspiring youth is eager to learn the secret of noble success. These books, so gratefully remembered by older men, have long since become powerless to aid a younger generation, and their place has not yet been worthily filled. It is our intention to issue a short series of small volumes that shall fulfil the mission of the best of these obsolescent manuals. No one mind, no single experience, would suffice for such a task. Each special field, each special group of personal problems, must be treated separately. There is the problem of the bod how shall its mechanism be perfected and kept in repair; the problem of the mind — how shall its latent powers be wisely developed ; the problem of the spiritual
nature — how shall it be best nurtured.

Mystic Poems (1903) By Townsend, A doniram

Truth is a universal fact. 

In spiritual life, or earth below, 
On physical law it may now act, 

Or act again by occult law. 
For Truth is sure and travels far — 

"Can hitch its wagon to a star,*" 
Can guide forever our super-sense, 

Receiving no earth recompense. 

Truth rushes mighty o'er the earth, 

It ever moves the soul of man. 
With God's divine beneficence. 

It moves all Nature e'en to scan 
God's triad Life with Light and Love — 

While man shall highest prove its source; 
Self-conscious man as God's own son.

The Vampire in Transformation By Hagur, the Grand Hierophant

Direct Download 

The psychic vampire is directly associated with practical metaphysics or occultism (esotericism) which is developed in the subconscious. The vampire who is obviously a magickian will always move forward in improving him or herself; and, the transformation over time will duly change the course and mode of state of being in power and psychic continuation. Vampirism is a concept which begins in the subconscious; and, is the power which hungers, that which seeks to consume all. It has, in fact, no concern for rules, neither for metaphysical laws. It may be said that it is the essence of the law of the talon (prey). Vampirism is predatory, the instinctual way of life of devouring and absorbing energy of humans, animals and nature around.

Concentration and meditation (1921) By Swami Paramananda

All possess the faculty of concentration, but with the majority it is instinctive and automatic, not conscious. Even among the animals we see how a lion or tiger will gather his strength by a moment of absolute stillness before he springs upon his prey ; that automatic, instinctive power of concentration is embedded in every living creature. But until we can gain conscious command over our mental and spiritual forces, we can never have complete concentration. When the scattered mind is gathered together it is like a bright searchlight, and by it man is able to investigate the latent powers which he possesses but of which he is not now wholly aware. As he grows more conscious of these hidden forces and learns to use them, he becomes more and
more proficient.

We never wish to be defeated and yet how often our strength of mind or our
physical capacities prove inadequate. It is because we have not the full and conscious possession of our whole being. Man cannot achieve much unless he has free use of his hands and feet, free use of his eyes and ears, free use of his muscles and above all free use of his mind and intelligence. But how many of us have the free use of all these? 

When we would make use of them we find them hopelessly scattered and rebellious to our will. The cause of this does not lie in any inherent lack of power, but in our inability to coordinate, and in our lack of definite one-
pointed purpose. We miss the mark because we do not set our aim properly.

Once in ancient India there was a tournament held to test marksmanship in
archery. A wooden fish was set up on a high pole and the eye of the fish was the target. One by one many valiant princes came and tried their skill but in vain. Before each one shot his arrow the teacher asked him what he saw and invariably all replied that they saw a fish on a pole at a great height, with head, eyes, etc.; but Arjuna as he took his aim said: "I see the eye of the fish," and he was the only one who succeeded in hitting the mark.

Concentration means wholeness, unity, equilibrium. The hands, feet, mind, all
our members and faculties must be unified. They must all work in harmony, in
tranquillity and balance. Balance is needed everywhere in life. A man may be
over-active or he may be idle ; both indicate absence of self-adjustment.

Concentration (1920) By Christian D. Larson

CONCENTRATION in general may be defined as an active state of mind wherein the whole of attention, with all available energy and talent, is being applied upon the one thing that we are doing now. We concentrate in the full meaning of the term when we give ourselves completely to the thought or the action of the present moment; and this is true whether we work with muscle, brain or mind, or express ourselves through thoughts, words or emotion.

The principle of concentration is to do one thing at a time, and to do that
one thing with all the talent and power we possess.

THE art of concentration is one of the simplest to learn, and one of the greatest when mastered; and these pages are written especially for those who wish to learn how to master this fine art in all of its aspects; who wish to develop the power to concentrate well at any time and for any purpose ; who wish to make real concentration a permanent acquisition of the mind.

Whatever your work or your purpose may be, a good concentration is indispensable. It is necessary to apply, upon the object or subject at hand, the full power of thought and talent if you are to secure, with a certainty, the re-
sults you desire, or win the one thing you have in view. But the art of concentration is not only a leading factor in the fields of achievement and realization; it is also a leading factor in an other field — a field of untold possibility.

The exceptional value of concentration is recognized universally; and still
there are comparatively few that really know how to concentrate. Some of
these have a natural aptitude for concentrated thought and action, while others have improved themselves remarkably in this direction, due to increased
knowledge on the subject; but as yet the psychology of concentration is not understood generally; and that is why the majority have not developed this great art, although they are deeply desirous of doing so.

The Law of Mentalism (1902) By A. Victor Segno

A praftical scientific explanation of thought or mind force, the law which governs all mental and physical action and phenomena the cause of life and death

In acquiring the information contained in this book, I lay in. claim to having possessed a knowledge or power superior to that possessed by many other persons. I simply claim that after many years of close, conscientious
study, to have touched a chord in Nature that responded and revealed to me the law which governs all intelligence, life and the change called death. After thoroughly testing this great power, I have decided to give the knowledge
to the world. I do so with the full conviction that it will Unionize, to a mure or less degree, the life of every person who reads it.

"The laws of thought are the laws of the universe." Buchner.

Developing Mental Power (1922) By George Malcolm Stratton

Every teacher requires a working knowledge of the fundamental nature of the human mind. Without it teaching cannot be made either an interesting or a creative occupation. When psychologically uninformed, the teacher can operate
on the mind of youth only in a formal and mechanical way, applying traditional and contemporaneous methods of procedure without much ability to adapt technique to conditions for the purpose of gaining predictable results.

Certainly the teacher who would make his teaching life an interesting and effective adventure with youth will wish to possess whatever scientific insight is necessary to an artful stimulation and control of growing minds. We recog-
nize the field of human psychology as vast. At bestits mastery isa patient and difficult matter. The important thing is to make a correct beginning. It will be highly economical of energy and discouragement. The waste of wrong views and partial views can hardly be overestimated. And such waste is largely avoidable if only the first general view of the nature of mind is accurately
acquired. Fundamental truths gained and held in a comprehensive way will be a continuing source of critical and constructive suggestion, a constant safeguard against error, a persisting guide to the accurate interpretation of new facts
and theories of mind prolifically offered in an age deeply interested psychological truth.

The history and power of mind By Richard Ingalese

The Occult forces of nature and their modes of manifestation have been known for ages to certain secret orders which have not deemed it wise heretofore
to give their knowledge to the world. This age, however, seems, in their judgment, propitious for the wider spread of such knowledge both because many independent investigators are discovering for themselves something about these forces and, in their ignorance, are perverting the use of them as witness hypnotism and because the advanced men of the race have reached a point where they are desirous of this knowledge, and every mental demand brings its supply.

"THE HISTORY AND POWER OF MIND" was selected for a title because the history of mind is the history of man; and these lectures first trace mind, or psychic man's, origin and development, and then describe the power of mind and its modes of manifestation.

It may not be amiss to state in conclusion that the book is not written for the purpose of propagandism. Something of the operation of Nature's Laws is described in these lectures, and the acceptance or rejection of the statements made will not change the Laws nor affect the author.

Hagakure Book of the Samurai By Yamamoto Tsunetomo

Hagakure meaning Hidden by the Leaves or hidden leaves, or Hagakure Kikigaki is a practical and spiritual guide for a warrior, drawn from a collection of commentaries by the samurai Yamamoto Tsunetomo, former retainer to Nabeshima Mitsushige, the third ruler of what is now the Saga prefecture in Japan. Tsuramoto Tashiro compiled these commentaries from his conversations with Tsunetomo from 1709 to 1716; however, it was not published until many years afterwards. Hagakure is also known as The Book of the Samurai, Analects of Nabeshima or Hagakure Analects.

The book records Tsunetomo's views on bushido, the warrior code of the samurai. Hagakure is sometimes said to assert that bushido is really the "Way of Dying" or living as though one was already dead, and that a samurai must be willing to die at any moment in order to be true to his lord. His saying "the way of the warrior is death" was a summation of the willingness to sacrifice that bushido codified.

Thought force in Business and Everyday Life By William Walker Atkinson

In justice to myself, I think it well to state that this work has been somewhat
hastily prepared from the notes used by me in certain of lectures, the lessons give herein practically being the syllabi of the said lectures.

In the lectures, and in this work, my one and only purpose has been to acquaint the students with the means of developing, and effectively using the might forces latent within him - Personal Magnetism and Psychic Influence. To this end I have scarified all pretensions to literary style, all attempts to secure felicity of diction. I have felt that I had a message to deliver, and I endeavored to deliver it promptly, clearly and plainly, without any attempt at “fine writing.”

If a homely word seemed to express my thought - I used it. If a slang term or semi-slang phrase seemed to fit in - in it went. I trust that my critics will spare themselves the trouble of pointing out my many defects of style and composition - I fully realize these things. I have subordinated everything else, in my endeavor to make this work plain and practical. This is an explanation, not an apology.

With the above understanding between us, I submit this little work to your kind consideration. Whilst fully cognizant of its defects, I still feel that it will be helpful to some of the many who are endeavoring to overcome unfavorable environments, which it may serve as a guidepost, pointing out the past to better things. I feel that it will do its share of the work of removing Fear thought from the minds of men, of replacing “I Can’t” with “I Can and I WILL.” I feel that I must do these things, for it contains within it the germs of a mighty Truth.

The Religion Of The Samurai By Kaiten Nukariya

So far as I know, no book is written on Zen in English or in any other European language, except * The Sermons of a Buddhist Abbot,' by Shaku So-yen. Since its foundation some fourteen hundred years ago, no author in China or Japan has undertaken a systematic explanation of it, owing to the fact that it is believed to have a hidden meaning entirely beyond expression. Besides, there are difficulties which baffle every attempt of its expositors, because almost
all the doctrinal works of old masters are metrical or enigmatical, and not only vague in meaning, but often mere jargon even to professional students.

As for myself, I have stated the doctrine, so far as I understand it, in plainest language, avoiding its technical terms. I regret not a little that I have not been able to give in detail references to the books on which my exposi-tion is based. Travelling round the world, I have left my books in Japan, and have written mostly from memory ; nevertheless, I have done my best to give the reader correct information.

With regard to the Japanese books on Zen referred to in the text, I have not given the names of the publishers. But all such works can be found at Moriye Book- shop, Azabu, Tokyo ; or at Asakura Book-shop, Asakusa, Tokyo.

An open acknowledgment of my sincere gratitude is due to Professor James H. Woods, of Harvard University, for his deep interest in this undertaking and for his constant help, and also to the Eeverend K6-do Yamada for his generous
aid and suggestions.

Mysterious Psychic Forces By Camille Flammarion

As long ago as 1865 I published, under the title, Unknown Natural Forces f a little monograph of a hundred and fifty pages which is still occasionally found in. the book-shops, hut has not been reprinted, I reprint here (pp. xiii-xxiii), what I wrote at that time in this critical study " apropos of the phenomena produced by the Davenport brothers and mediums in general." It was published by Didier Co., book- sellers to the Academy, who had already issued my first two works, The Plurality of Inhabited Worlds and Imaginary Worlds and Real Worlds.

"France has just been engaged in an exciting debate, where the sound of voices was drowned in a great uproar, and out of which no conclusion has emerged. A disputation more noisy than intelligent has been raging around a whole group of unexplained facts, and so completely muddled the problem that, in place of illuminating it, the debate has only served to shroud it in deeper darkness;

"During the discussion a singular remark was fre-quently heard, to the effect that those who shouted the loud-est in this court of assize were the very ones who were least informed on the subject. It was an amusing spectacle to see
these persons in. a death-grapple with mere phantoms. Panurge himself would have laughed at it.

a The result of the matter is that less is known to-day up-on the subject in dispute than at the opening of the debates*

** In the mean time, seated upon neighboring heights were certain excellent old fellows who observed the writs of arrest

issued against the more violent combatants, but who remained for the most part grave and silent, though they occasionally smiled, and withal did a deal of hard thinking,

"I am going to state what weight should be given to the opinions of those* of us who do not rashly allirm the impossi-bility of the facts now put under the ban and who do not acid their voices to the dominant note of opposition."

"I do not conceal from myself the consequences of such sincerity. It requires a good deal of boldness to Insist on affirming, in the name of positive science, the POSSIBILITY of these phenomena (wrongly styled supernatural), and to con-stitute one's self the champion of a cause apparently ridicu-lous, absurd, and dangerous, knowing, at the same time, that the avowed adherents of said cause have little standing in science, and that even its eminent partisans only venture to speak of their approval of it with bated breath. However, since the matter has just been, treated momentarily in fugitive writings by a group of journalists whose exacting labors wholly forbid a study of the psychic and physical forces ; and since, of all this multitude of writers, the greater part have only heaped error upon error, puerility upon ex-travagance; and since it appears from every page they have written (I hope they will pardon me) that not only are they ignorant of the very a, c of the subject they have so fantastically treated, but their opinions upon this class of facts rest upon no basis whatever, therefore I have thought it would serve a purpose if I should leave, as a sou-venir of the long wrangle, a piece of writing better based and buttressed than the lucubrations of the above-mentioned gentlemen. 

As a lover of truth, I am willing to face a thou-sand reproaches. Be it distinctly understood that I do not for a moment deem my judgment superior to that of my confreres, some of whom are in other respects highly gifted*
The simple fact is that they are not familiar with this subjeet, but are straying in it at random, wandering through a strange region. They misunderstand the very terminol-ogy, and imagine that facts long ago well authenticated are
impossible. By way of contrast, the writer of these lines will state that for several years he has been engaged in dis-cussions and experiments upon the subject. (I am not speaking of historical studies.) 

Parapsychology Frontier Science Of The Mind By Joseph Banks (J.B.) Rhine

A Survey of the Field, the Methods, and the Facts of ESP and PK Research.

Parapsychology: Frontier Science of the Mind is a book by Joseph Banks Rhine and Joseph Gaither Pratt, originally published in 1957.

It is a textbook and reference work which provides an introduction to the field of parapsychology, which discusses "methods for testing, tables for evaluation, reading lists, and other research aids".

Parapsychology: Frontier Science of the Mind has been reviewed in The Philosophical Review, Philosophy East and West, and the Southern Medical Journal.

With THOMAS BOOKS careful attention is given to all details of manufacturing and design. It is the Publishers desire to present books that are satisfactory as to their physical qualities and artistic possibilities and appropriate for their particular use. THOMAS BOOKS will be true to those laws of quality that assure a good name and good will.

Printed in the United States of America.

The plan of the book is simply to state the established facts and to offer in the text references to the main publications that cover the researches concerned. Only the main references, however, are given. None but the research parapsychologist would need the rest, and he well knows how to find them himself. This book, rather, is designed to be read and consulted by those who do not already know the field but who wish, to some extent at least, to
enter it with proper information at hand* Each section and sub-section is labeled, identified and indexed as clearly as possible to make the search for needed items a quick and easy one.

The essential features of method and apparatus are photo-graphically illustrated. The procedures, both methodological and evaluative, are given to an extent that should serve the purpose for all but the professional parapsychologist himself. If there are shortcomings encountered, we want to know about them for cor-rection on revision, and if information is lacking that the reader cannot himself find with die help of the available references, we
will welcome direct inquiry from readers.

We are indebted to our publisher, Mr. Charles C Thomas, for the suggestion that this book should be written. Our greatest obli-gation, of course, is to our fellow-workers in parapsychology who have given us the findings these pages review. We are especially grateful to those colleagues who have helped with the manuscript: Dr. R. J. Cadoret, Dr. Louisa E. Rhine, Dr. R. H. Thouless, Dr.
T. N. E. Greville, Dr. j. A. Greenwood, Mrs. Sally Feather, Mrs. Farilla David, and Mrs. Joan Walker. We have, of course, to hold ourselves responsible for whatever inadequacies the book may still reveal.

Three Books of Occult Philosophy By Henry Cornelius Agrippa

This massive volume was originally published in 1531, and occultists have been drawing on it ever since. Now, Llewellyn is proud to produce the first complete reprint of the original English translation in the last 500 years.

Donald Tyson edited this work and removed the hundreds of errors that appeared in the original translation. He also fully annotated the work, to make it understandable—and usable—by people today.

  • ·Discover what the Renaissance scholar knew about astrology, medicine, history, herbs, geography, animals, angels, devils, Witches, charms, the weather, and a host of other subjects
  • ·Gain immediate reference to a vast amount of arcane, but completely annotated, magical material
  • ·Find corrected drawings of seals, sigils, and magic squares, and correctly represented geomantic figures
  • ·Explore the practical Kabbalah, geomancy, the magic squares, the elements, the humors, and the Soul of the World
  • ·Consult the new Biographical dictionary for background on each of the hundreds of writers and historical figures referred to by Agrippa
  • ·Consult the new Geographical Dictionary for data on referenced rivers, mountains, nations, cities—many of which now carry different names.

The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is the most complete repository of pagan and Neoplatonic magic ever compiled. This book is packed with material you will not find elsewhere, including copious extracts on magic from obscure or lost works by Pythagoras, Ptolemy, Plato, Aristotle, and many others. Tyson’s detailed annotations clarify difficult references and provide origins of quotations, even expanding upon them in many cases, in order to make Agrippa’s work more accessible to the modern reader.

The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is the ultimate “how-to” for magical workings. It describes how to work all manner of divinations and natural and ceremonial magic in such clear and useful detail that it is still the guide for modern techniques. The extensive new supplementary material makes this wisdom practical for use today.

The Three Books of Occult Philosophy is an essential reference tool for all students of the occult.

Mind Power The Secret of Mental Magic By William Walker Atkinson

What if there was a way to magically make your future take shape by merely thinking about it?

Make things take shape and circumstances play out that you so desperately wanted?

Your life can shrink or expand in proportion to your courage and limitations of your thoughts.

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thoughts. You are where you are today because you chose to be there. When life throws misfortune at you, you have a choice to respond to it in a life enhancing way or not. This is a very powerful way of thinking.

It forces you to take responsibility for your life and actions. Your attitude can be a big factor in determining your success in overcoming difficulties. Life is about constant growth, and mind power is the fuel for your life’s fire that enables you to live a life of wealth and abundance.

Think if it how much different your life can be if you have better life enhancing thoughts? Think what you can achieve if you use your mind power to create
the life you have always dreamt of? Fully revised and updated since the first publication in 1908, then in 1908, as well as in 1912.

Now in 2005, I bring you one of the best books on advanced thought and the power of the mind.

Stripped of all the typical examples that you find in so many self-help books today, this one gives you the exact steps to take to the state of mind where you will create your life of abundance and prosperity.

My work focus only on the methods and strategies you need to employ to develop and create the live you have always desired.

Having applied the strategies contained in this encyclopedia of thought power for over 20 years with great success, I can give you’re the assurance that these strategies work.

Whether you looking for personal success, relationship success, financial success, or just a quantum leap in improvement in personal circumstances of yourself and those around you, harnessing the power of the mind will change your life forever.

I must warn you that the strategies contained here are incredibly powerful, and you must give the silent undertaking to your fellow man kind not to use these strategies to anyone’s disadvantage,or in a selfish manner, but in a way that will improve the life for us all.

Mind Power will help you to create the exact life you want!

Naos: A Practical Guide to Modern Magick By Thorold West and ONA writers

If you have found the medieval grimoires ridiculous, and the wiccan rites bland and childish, if you despaired that the Satanic "Black Book" only existed in works of occult fiction, you will be delighted to have Naos, for here is a truly Satanic grimoire.

The purpose of the present work is to provide a self-contained and practical guide to esoteric magick based upon the Septenary tradition. This hitherto secret tradition (also known as hebdomadry) is here published for the first time.

The present work is clearly written, without any mystification. Part One is a practical guide to becoming an Adept and is essentially 'Internal magick' - that is, magick used to bring about personal development (of consciousness and so on). Part Two is an equally practical guide to esoteric sorcery and magickal techniques and is 'External magick' - that is, the changing of events / circumstances / individuals and so on according to the desire of the sorcerer / sorceress.

Internal magick is the following of the Occult path from Initiation to Adeptship and beyond, and in the Septenary tradition this path is known as the 'seven- fold Way'.

Part Three contains a selection of esoteric manuscripts circulated among members of the ONA: they present and explain further aspects of the Septenary system as well as other techniques, both directly magickal and more practical. They are published exactly as circulated.

The techniques given in the present work enable any individual to follow the path to wisdom: to achieve that genuine, individual, freedom or liberation - and this freedom is 'internal' : the emergence of the Adept, that is, the development of insight, both personal and 'Occult'.

Of all Occult traditions, the Septenary is perhaps the most practical and direct as a means of attaining this insight.
