Check these out:
A good collection of stuff this week and most of October of them going crazy here:
Nick Farel’s quote about this article disgusts me. He says: “They might have disdain for it, but how many occultists don’t have a day job? The Kybalion is nothing to do with magic or occultism. It is new thought from the 19th century (a precursor to the new age movement) . If anyone expects real magicians to work along those bogus beliefs then it is not surprising. But there are similar concepts that a magician has to be benign, loving and saint-like.”
The Kybalion is based off the Corpus Hermeticum. Of course it has a place in the occult!
Then there is this: http://www.nickfarrell.it/ten-reasons-why-public-occultism-is-dying/
Ironically the article mentions Jake Stratton-Kent who basically took a shit on the whole GD tradition and constantly talks about how useless it is.
I think this is a good turning point to be honest, less book sales does not mean that the occult is dying, it could mean people are more focused on using one book to get their skills honed. Occult orders not having money is not a bad thing, it could mean people are learning by themselves and experimenting rather than be told how to do everything in a way that does not work for a lot of people.
