Though pro-Christian slanted, this author brings many details and facts of history about various secret societies and cults to the forefront, and showing their connections and impact on the world and history.
THIS book is an attempt to show, by means of actual investigations, of documentary evidence, and personal knowledge of the inner workings, that this present movement for World Revolution leading to World Domination is but an age-long and culminating, fanatical effort on the part of some Overshadowing Power working through many secret illuminised sects.
Whatever his ideas on the Messianic era and the true destiny of man may have been, the following account of mysticism and magic, written from 1823-5 by Hoëné Wronski, might well be an actual picture of world conditions to-day under the influence of similar mystic and secret societies - far more numerous and influential than the public imagine - through which the Invisible Centre is again seeking to direct and dominate the nations and the world.
THE OVERSHADOWING POWER
In his Traité méthodique de magic Pratique, Papus, the well-known occultist and cabalist, Dr. Gerard Encausse, writes:
"A learned initiate and encydopædist, Hoëné Wronski, in a work which is almost unobtainable to-day, L'Apodictique Messianique, has given an analysis of magic and its origins, as well as its results, which merits a dose study on the part of serious inquirers. We hope therefore to render service to such by reproducing the whole of the section devoted to mysticism and magic."
Briefly, Wronski states that the aim of Mystic Associations is " Participation in Creation," and the physical end is "Direction of the Destinies of the Earth." This mysticism "consists of the mystic limitation of the absolute reality (universal life-force or energy), forming in general the neutralisation of this negative and positive energy," a form of magnetic polarisation, creating the etheric link; for this reason these societies cultivate supernatural sentiments and arts such as "Hermetic Philosophy, Alchemy, the Great Work or Stone of the Philosophers, the Panacea, Magnetic-healing, Regeneration, etc., and certain mysteries of physical generation, etc." Being unable to discover scientifically, by reason, the destinies of the earth, they profess to foresee it by a "Cabalistic interpretation of the traditions of the Holy Scriptures"; then they seek to direct these destinies by means of special missions given to chosen men in all ranks of society.
Secret Societies. - He says:
"As the supernatural efforts made by the Mystic Association to take part in creation can neither be practised nor discussed publicly ... and being equally debarred from openly directing the destinies of the earth as Governments would oppose it, this mysterious association can perforce only act through Secret Societies. Thus actually it is in the heart of mysticism that all secret societies, which have existed, and still exist, on our globe, are born, and which, controlled from this mysterious source, have dominated and, notwithstanding Governments, continue to dominate the world.
