While Waiting for Thee


Don't weep at my grave,
For I am not there,
I've a date with a butterfly
To dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine,
Wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind,
While I'm waiting for thee.
The Comfort and Sweetness of Peace
After the clouds, the sunshine,
after the winter, the spring,
after the shower, the rainbow,
for life is a changeable thing.
After the night, the morning,
bidding all darkness cease,
after life's cares and sorrows,
the comfort and sweetness of peace.

GOLD: Israel Regardie's Lost Book of Alchemy




In this newly rediscovered text, famed occultist Israel Regardie sheds light on the psychological/spiritual meaning behind the symbols and metaphors of alchemy. To this end, he presents an important seventeenth century alchemical treatise for analysis, "The True Book of The Learned Greek Abbot Synesius Taken out of The Emperor's Library," written by an anonymous alchemist. As in his previous book on alchemy (The Philosopher's Stone), Regardie discusses "The True Book of Synesius" in the language of Jungian psychology, magnetism, and hypnosis. But here the discussion is more specific, with Regardie citing his own unique experiences as a therapist and a healer. In Gold, Regardie explores the similarities between alchemical theory, Taoist philosophy, yoga, hypnosis, Zen Buddhism, and experiments with the human aura.

Fully edited and annotated by Chic and Sandra Tabatha Cicero, Gold is the first new book by Regardie published in decades and includes two important appendices. First, Regardie talks about the practical use of the concepts, and the Ciceros reveal the earliest version of Regardie's The Art of True Healing, straight from the author's personal advance copy, complete with Regardie's own corrections penciled into the margins.

Available in early Spring 2015 from Llewellyn Publications.

For a Friend




Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

Mary Frye, American poet (1904 - 2004)
