Yesterday, one of the endorsers Egregores: The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny pointed out a review of the book for me to read. The review was lengthy and highly negative. A great deal of cyber ink was spilled in its writing as well as in the discussion that followed in the comments – comments which quickly degrades to ad hominem attacks in several instances. What is most interesting is that the critic began his ‘review’ with saying that he doesn’t normally read books about occultism! Clearly he was taking a special interest in this one, and not only that, a special interest in an area he admits to not caring much for, and from that we can presume knows much about.
So, why does someone spend a great deal of time trashing a book on a subject they know and care little about? Apparently it hit a nerve as the book speaks to an unconscious truth that has to be shouted down. Several people who have read the book and the review all asked the same question, “Is this guy even reading the same book as we are?”
What makes it all the more intriguing is that Egregores: The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny has been holding the Number One in New Book Sales for Comparative Religions for a week or more. More importantly, the book is not available and will not be in print until July 2018.
This then raises the question, “How did he get a copy or get access to the preview link?” And again, why spend all that time trashing a book that by his own admission is on a topic he cares little and knows little about? Simple: he may be paid to do it either directly or through web traffic – purely mercenary reasons, or as we say, “on the payroll of the Demiurge.” The reason we have had such tremendous support from a variety of people, traditions, and perspectives for this book, as well as enthusiasm from the publishers, is because everyone who has read it knows that it is a life changing book. It is has the ability to suggest ideas and some means to help people free themselves from these psychic parasites that plague the human condition. This is not to say that it will ‘save the world’. No, but that is does have very real means to provide people with a glimpse behind the curtain so they can save themselves and maybe help a few others. That is all it can realistically do.
But you see that is what is called ‘the thin edge beneath the door.’ Jesus started with twelve disciples and several dozen followers. Padmasambhava had twenty-five disciples. The National Socialist Party, the forerunner to the Nazi Party had fewer than sixty members when Adolph Hitler joined and was its fifty-fifth member. Fidel Castro has been quoted as saying that if he was to undertake the Cuban Revolution again all it would take was a dozen or so committed associates. Let these numbers sink in.
A small group can make a difference, because all large movements start as small groups. Movements do not have to be organized in a formal sense, they can be ideas – ideas that help us, neutralize us, or hinder us. The purpose behind the writing and publishing Egregores: The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny is to encourage and assist people is recognizing what these ideas are and to decide for themselves if they want to participate in them – in short, it is a book about personal responsibility and personal freedom – in a word, enlightenment.
