Embodying Osiris – The Secrets of Alchemical Transformation

By Thom F. Cavalli, Ph.D.

275 Pages | First Question edition 2010 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 9780835608800.

A ground-breaking integration of Jungian Psychology, Alchemy and Egyptian Mythology.

The myth of Osiris, dying and resurrecting Egyptian God of vegetation, marks a change that describes the earliest beginnings of the modern psyche. In excavating the myth. Jungian psychologist Thom Cavalli uses alchemy to transmute hidden secrets into sacred knowledge. Here for the first time is an alchemical interpretation of this timeless myth as a guide to spiritual transformation. Osiris’s rebirth symbolizes what alchemists have always seen as the creative power we all have for self-renewal. Cavalli shows us how to access this archetypical God in the quest to integrate body and Soul. To ‘become’ Osiris is to become whole.

From Chapter 2 – ‘Alchemy, Magic and Osiris’ (p. 67):

” Whether I live or die, I am Osiris

I enter in and reappear through you,

I decay in you. I grow in you.

I fall down in you. I fall upon my side.

The Gods are living for me for I live and grow in the corn

That sustains the Honored Ones.

I cover the earth,

Whether I live or die I am Barley,

I am not destroyed. “

– Mojsov, Osiris (8) (see intro., nr. 4). The quote is from The Coffin Texts.

The Perfume of Egypt – And Other Weird Stories

By Charles Webster Leadbeater.

271 Pages | First edition, 7th reprint 2004 | Soft cover | The Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar.

The author of this book, Charles Webster Leadbeater (1854 – 1934), was a clairvoyant whose range of experience of occult phenomena and unusual happenings waa extraordinary. The Perfume of Egypt is a collection of ‘weird stories’, mostly about ghosts, which is both fascinating and informative, because they represent either personal experiences of the author or what he had heard directly from authentic sources.

Mr. Leadbeater himself brings to attention in his Foreword (page viii):

” I have written other and more serious books, in which such things as these are scientifically explained; in this volume my only desire is to help my readers to pass pleasantly a few hours of leisure time. “

Ancient Mystic Rites

241 Pages | First Quest Edition 1986, 3rd printing 1995 | Paperback | Quest Books, USA

Ancient Mystic Rites is Charles W. Leadbeater’s (1854 – 1934) absorbing in-depth study of the Mystery Schools of Egypt, Greece, Judea and Europe in the Middle Ages, up to the emergence of Co-Masonry in the twentieth century. During his lifetime, Leadbeater used his rare capacity for clairvoyance or ‘seeing’ beyond the physical plane for many purposes. He observed and recorded the sub-atomic structure of a number of elements before science had the capacity to determine such things. He described the forms and colors created as a result of our thoughts and the shapes and colors of the human subtle body.

Drawing on these abilities as well as on historical records, Leadbeater relates in this book fascinating, previously unknown facts about the Mystery Schools and their practices and beliefs. His observations and reflections point up many similarities among these schools in spite of distance and time  – a common ‘Mystery-bond’ running through otherwise disparate cultures. As Leadbeater shows, these ancient rites have emerged in this century as Freemasonry.

Jung and the Lost Gospels – Insights into The Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi Library

By Stephan A. Hoeller.

268 Pages | A Quest Original 1989, 6th printing 2004 | Softcover | Quest Books, U.S.A. | ISBN: 0835606465.

Within a matrix of modern depth psychology, Stephan A. Hoeller shows similarities between secret traditions of the Essenes and early Gnostic mysticism.

Gospels discovered in the 1940s reveal a pre-Christian Judaism of Gnostic character. The Dead Sea Scrolls essentially are mystical documents. It appears the Scrolls’ Essene authors of 130 B.C. – 70 A.D. like the Nag Hammadi Gnostic authors of the Apostolic Age, experienced visions of an esoteric nature, and the Scrolls possess an inner, hidden meaning. The Nag Hammadi Library, discovered by two peasants, who unearthed clay jars in 1945 in upper Egypt, did not appear in English for 32 years, because they were knotted in wranglings among scholars, politicians, and antique dealers. The Dead Sea Scrolls discovered in clay jars in Palestine by a goatherder in 1947, weathered similar storms. The first team of analysts were most Christian clergy, since the material frightened church leaders. As Dr. Hoeller shows in Jung and the Lost Gospels, they rightly feared the documents would reveal information to detract from unique claims of Christianity. Indeed, the Dead Sea Scrolls and Nag Hammadi Library both contradict and complement accepted Old and New Testaments.

From Chapter 6 – ‘Errant Wisdom – The Myth of Sophia’ (p. 112):

” Sophia is the World Spirit, or the collective archetype of the entirety of cosmic and individual life, growth and development. As such, she is most closely associated with the nature and faith of humanity: the initial differentation and subsequent individuation of the soul and its Union with spirit. “

The Idyll of the White Lotus

By Mabel Collins (1851-1927), with an explanation by Swami T. Subba Row (1856 – 1890).

206 Pages | First edition 1884, 2nd to 9th reprint 1896 – 1973, second edition 2000 | Softcover | Theosophical Publishing House, Adyar | ISBN: 8170593999.

Dutch translation: De Idylle van de Witte Lotus | Ankh-Hermes | ISBN: 9789020255409.

This tale of a young seer in a decadent temple in Ancient Egypt is at once gripping and profound. It depicts the evolution of a Soul from weakness to strength, from ignorance to insight – a pure but unthinking child becomes a wise messenger.

From the Prologue:

” Behold, I stood alone, one among many, an isolated individual in the midst of a united crowd. And I was alone, because among the all the men my brethren, who knew, I alone was the man who both knew and taught. I taught the believers at the gate, and was driven to do this by the power dwelled in the sanctuary. I had no escape, for in that deep darkness of the most sacred shrine, I beheld the light of the inner life and was driven to reveal it, and by it was upheld and made strong. For indeed, although I died, it took ten priests of the temple to accomplish my death, and even then they but ignorantly thought themselves powerful. “
