From Clive Harper: Friends and acquaintances may be surprised by an announcement recently made regarding the sale of books from my collection. So let me assure everyone that in the immortal words of Granny Weatherwax – “I ATEN’T DEAD”. However after nearly half a century of accumulating occult books, I have decided that it is time to “downsize” and over the next year or two, I shall be dispersing the vast majority of my collection.
The discovered cachet included hundreds of diversified objects, including 75 cat statues in various sizes, a wooden statue of the goddess Neith, who was the main goddess of Sais, the capital of the 26th Dynasty, 73 bronze statues of Osiris, and 11 wooden statues of Sekhmet. A large number of mummified animals and statues made of bronze were also unearthed. Two small limestones belonging to Bastet were unearthed along with other beautiful gems.
‘To become an Initiate you need to uncover what has been previously hidden both in yourself and in your understanding of the forces of nature, learning how to explore and develop your own self-actualisation. A true Initiate does not use powers to be better, wiser, more advanced or somehow superior to others but works towards a co-operative and careful use of power for the good of all. Psychosynthesis is excellent for both initiation and therapy because at its centre are tried esoteric and magical practices, updated by Roberto Assagioli, the founder of Psychosynthesis, and various practitioners after him, to make them relevant and useful in our modern world.’

Some very interesting remarks in this article… Suddenly Bishop Michael curry was preaching at me, emphatically, about the power of love. ‘Love is the way.’ My friend, an atheist, tried to interject and be cynical, and I slapped him on the hand and said, ‘You are ruining this for me!’ I’m sure my eyes were wide, like a cherub on a chapel wall. He was emphatic, soulful and best of all, fearless.
