"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

"I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone."

Iagla (the Ur Group) - Introduction to Magic

"Occultism has an extremely subtle “virtue”. It is “serpentine.” And it is also essential.
People in general have their clichés, their ethical, religious, or social ideals, their opinions about Strength, Wisdom, and Greatness. But all in all, occultism is a very different thing. It is elusive and cannot be measured. It comes from the opposite direction from the one everyone is looking toward. Thus it goes unnoticed; or if it is noticed, it disconcerts. It robs of their certainties those who thought they were secure, who thought they had their feet on the ground.
The occultist is a being who cannot be measured by ordinary standards. Nobody knows what he is really capable of, nor what his action consists of. His path is impenetrable. You may be his best friend, his companion, and even his lover; you may think you own his heart, his affection, or his devotion. And yet, he will be an other, besides the one you already know. You will become aware of this “other” one only when you enter his domain. Then you will feel as if you had been walking along the edge of an abyss."

"Moods are in the mind and do not matter. Go within, go beyond. Cease being fascinated by the content of your consciousness. When you reach the deep layers of your true being, you will find that the mind’s surface-play affects you very little."
