The Study of the Occult
Good short video from YouTube user Venus Satanas. She mentioned keeping notes, which is a good idea for maintaining important points. I have found that a composition book dedicated to one area of study is preferable to keeping notes on MS Word files, in which it just seems to get lost. With a composition book, your study is always handy.
It's amazing how quickly the great points can collect and harmonize together... and develop into a certain construction. I say this for anyone, even beyond the broad definition below... Christians, Heathens, etc. The only thing I disagreed with a bit here is the idea that one must devour book after book and be active every day. We can get to things when we get to them.
Occultism has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD.
