A range from the Preface:
Although the identify of this [book] could seem, to a few who've no longer learn its contents, to be either presumptuous and unwarrantable, it truly is was hoping that those will reserve their judgment till they've got given due awareness and attention to the examine of such a massive subject.
We reside in unusual instances. Civilization turns out quickly to be breaking apart, whereas but a few internal urge is at paintings in the direction of a greater and extra balanced development in may possibly departments of life.
One of the result of the nice conflict has been to show the minds of many of us from a few of the narrower conceptions of lifestyles into wider channels. A spirit of enquiry has develop into obvious at the a part of those that had formerly been content material to just accept statements in regard to life's deeper concerns on mere trust or rumour. Many new pursuits have arisen lower than the assistance of people that have got at the very least a partial glimpse of man's wider history, and there was a corresponding falling clear of what will be termed the orthodox or establishment of items within the church buildings and in other places. many nations were making experiments of varied forms, such a lot of which, despite the fact that, being the result of "reform pursuits" of the narrowest type, are quick proving themselves to be unsatisfactory and insufficient. at this time, amid these kind of symptoms, there turns out to were no whole resolution in sight, and, so it might probably look, little or no comprehension, even at the a part of those who find themselves in truth doing their top lower than the conditions, of the underlying ideas concerned. those that may still relatively be able to support, are not able to take action successfully for a similar reason.
It could seem a miles cry from the current global- stipulations of a social and political nature to the Holy Qabalah, yet support occasionally comes from rather unforeseen sources.
The Jews, and the Jewish challenge, characterize extremely important elements of the trouble and its answer. a superb percentage of the wealth of the realm is at the present time within the arms of the Jews, but as a state they've got no position. because the "chosen humans" they have been a big country, however the rejection of the instructor in who they anticipated to discover their Messiah, is mostly thought of to were the reason for their changing into wanderers upon the face of the Earth. but the be aware "Jew" is derived from IU, the Ever-Coming Son, the Horus of the earliest Egyptian traditions, whose effect isn't really constrained to the Christian period yet extends to every age, and of Whom all actually commonplace God-Men, corresponding to Jesus, were, and are, the representatives upon earth.
But the Jews have missed the examine in their personal "Chokmah Nestorah," or mystery knowledge culture, as transmitted within the Holy Qabalah, hence wasting sight in their actual Will as a state and their crucial function within the nice artistic Plan. It has remained for the Gentile to rediscover the various deeper mysteries of this historical knowledge, and those are stumbled on to be an analogous in essence as these of Catholicism, Freemasonry, Pythagorean Philosophy, Hermeticism, and so on; actually there has constantly been a common culture which whilst recognized has led the international locations to the peak of civilization, and whilst misplaced has heralded their decline and downfall.
The current world-crisis and breaking apart of civilization is because of the need of a normal "clean-up" preparatory to a much broader and grander belief being provided to humanity than has been attainable for plenty of hundreds of thousands of years. All considering humans detect that issues are in a severe situation, and all can be ready to understand any average chance of acquiring an answer in an effort to be of everlasting, instead of of transitority value.
Things can't be placed correct with out attempt, and the query arises: "In what path is attempt so much necessary?"
