The Golden Star

A Mystic Crescendo in Twelve Visions

By J Michaud PhD

Introduction

Aptly described as ďA BOOK FOR INITIATESĒ, The Golden Star expounds the most ADVANCED OCCULT TEACHINGS, never before revealed to the public, yet in such a fascinating manner as to hold and extend the interest of the novice.
 

A word to the Wise Reader

This book can be of the GREATEST PERSONAL BENEFIT TO YOU IF you read it through carefully from the beginning to the end and do NOT skip any Visions (chapters).
The Twelve Visions of the Book form an ascending scale, during which the Authorís advanced occult teachings are gradually introduced and unfolded. The teachings of the later Visions (such as those revealed in Vision 5—Spiritualism) cannot be understood without reading ALL the Visions that precede it.

The Author divides his mystic crescendo into twelve visions or chapters, which are typified not merely as levels of consciousness but also as states of matter above and below the level of our normal, waking consciousness and material thinking. Ma-u and Ma-uti, the pair of Egyptian pilgrims who are destined to go so far under the guidance of Neteru-hem, the Divine Messenger, are shadowy figures as human characters; but they represent more than the ideal companionship which is occasionally possible in this life, more even than that equilibration of reason and emotion which is so rarely attained here; for their journey through the unseen and largely unknown realms of higher consciousness constitute a pictorial view of the stages by which the Alchemical Marriage is perfected under the watchful guidance of the Higher Self.

There has never been a time when the great Wisdom contained in The Golden Star was more vitally needed than today. As the Divine Messenger himself says in this book: ďIt is most necessary that the true Teachings shall again be spread among mankind.Ē
 

Authorís Note

by J Michaud PhD

All the facts and data, as related by the Divine Messenger in this Book, are in accordance with the most ADVANCED OCCULT TEACHINGS, from the remotest times of antiquity until to-day. They are not figments of the Authorís imagination, but rest on the solid basis of the Ancient Wisdom, gathered together over periods of untold thousands of years, which the profound learning of all the greatest Teachers, aided by Divine Inspiration, has been able to record for our minds to dwell on; so that our hearts and Souls shall bow in adoration to the Incomprehensible Highest All-Father-All-Mother, and the Holy Angels, Princes of Light, and their Sacred Ministers of the Celestial Spheres.

Several of the sayings of Neteru-Hem are based on parts of the Secret Doctrine, that great collection of ancient words of wisdom, so patiently assembled by Madame Blavatsky, to whom the world of Western Occultism owes a debt so great that it can never be repaid—except with deepest respect and gratitude for the wonderful Service she has rendered to Mankind.

The Author has essayed the almost impossible task of giving the name of every Sage whose words have been quoted; but to supply a complete list would turn this book into a catalogue! He therefore craves your indulgence in this and all the rest.

It will be noted that the style of writing varies considerably throughout the book. There is a definite Occult reason for this, which will be understood by the discerning reader.
