I don’t usually post unless it’s an announcement or site notification, but I thought I would share two books with you that I think every student of the occult should read, regardless your paradigm. ~ Frank D.
The Kybalion by Three Initiates
A tract of Hermetic philosophy that includes seven Hermetic principles that, in my opinion, all magicians should meditate on. I have found this one of the most inspiring books in my library and still pull it from the shelf from time to time when I’m in a reflective mood. You can totally find this book as a free PDF download on the internet, but I recommend a hard copy for those who feel inspired by the book.
My Life with the Spirits by Lon Milo Duquette
If you are looking for magical biographies that are actually interesting and don’t read like stereo instructions, this is the autobiography you want. Witty and relatable (whether you’re a Thelemite or not), this book resonated with me as I think it does with many magicians. Also, it has Goetic spirits in it, so there’s that. Add to that that Duquette is a very open-minded (chaos) magician in his own right, and this book will keep you turning the pages.
Which two occult books would you recommend and why?
