For all the students of Bardon, it is quite a release ! Another manuscript from the Master ! How is it possible ? From where does it come from ? Is it even a real manuscript ?
Well, quite a handle of relevant questions to be asked. No ?
What do they say in this book ? Pretty Nothing ! Well, Mr Martin Faulks, can you answer these previous questions or give us some more informations ? It is said that it was notes from Bardon Study Group in Prague, compiled after that by Dieter Ruggerberg. That's light.
Well, anyway ... The book was previously published in German under the name : Notizen aus dem Bard on-Arbeitskreis in Prag, Hilfe zur Selbsterkenntnis - Introspekti.
The book is composed of 4 part, Fire, Air, Water, and Earth, with 21 attributes for the Fire element; 20 attributes for the Air element; 19 attributes for the Water element; and 18 for the Earth element.
It is not per se an exercises book. But it is possible to generate from it exercises and pragmatic applications. No doubt that this book is of some utility in the practice of Bardon's system of Magick. We also understand that the students of Bardon were "educated" in a certain way and had more support than we can imagine, IIH and then seen as just a skeleton of exercises, lacking an enormous part of theory that the magus must gain by himself. The stress with this book is put on the magickal equilibrium of the personnality of the magus.
It's a Magickal "Work your Ass off" book. It helps also the magus to work on archetypes and qualities of the elements.
What could be added ? Read it, it won't hurt for sure. But it must not only be read, as I said earlier, it must be a practical handbook of personal growth.
