Dear Ones,

Because my recent historical readings on Neo-Hinduism cast its occult abilities in certain  historical instances in a sensationalistic light …

How to Lift the Dire Karma of the Jackass Love Curse . by Alice B. Clagett *

Jackass Love Curse

Image: “The Magic Finger or Animal Magnetism: Our Faculties Are in Rapport (’Nos facultes sont en rapport’),” This file comes from Science Museum Group in the United Kingdom. Refer to Wellcome blog post (archive). In Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Le_doigt_magique_ou_le_magnetisme_animal%27_Wellcome_L0000477EB.jpg … CC BY 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: In this cartoon a jackass is sitting in a chair. Its neck is tethered to the back of the chair, so that it is sitting upright as would a person. Between the back legs of the jackass stands a man in topcoat, smiling fatuously. Behind this odd pair is a wall with an open door. In the next room can be seen a man in topcoat holding his hands up in front of a beaker on a table, possibly so as to transfer animal magnetism to its contents. Hanging on the wall appears to be a piece of meat. Wikimedia Commons: “See L477A. The roles here are reversed: The ass is hypnotised. In the background is a magnetic pharmacy with magnetised calves feet and head.” [ In another cartoon about animal magnetism, the hypnotist was portrayed as an ass or donkey.] … COMMENT: A hidden meaning of the jackass’s tether might be that the hypnotist is ‘bound down’ to the devil that grants him powers of mesmerism. As well, one might take it that such a ‘deal with the devil’ might cost the mesmerist his Soul, so that his essence degenerates from the individual awareness of the human being to the group consciousness of the animal realm.

Dear Ones,

I see that the Fall 2017 issue of “Quest Magazine,” published by the Theosophical Society in America, features an article by Ray Grasse detailing an interview he had with mystic Shelly Trimmer, who spent a few years studying (and apparently, jousting) with Paramahansa Yogananda. Also included were anecdotes that Ray Grasse heard from Goswami Kriyananda ..
