A Blue Pill minus the new age sugar coating

John Baines has a knack for giving us insights that initially shock us but later force us to ponder on them. In this work, he has revealed amazing secrets convincingly enough to destroy the foundations of all three Semitic faiths. The case of Hermetic wisdom has been presented with scientific logic than meandering long windedly like conventional Oriental philosophies. Readers will learn about the 7 Keys of Hermeticism, each explained with several subtopics that one would have had to spend a lifetime for knowing in the ancient days. There is no arrogance, no idle humour, no "selling". Nearly every chapter has an invitation to think out for ourselves about the veracity of the fantastic insights. The most convincing teaching is that of Living in the Present Moment. Only Janet Swerdlow in her work "Decoding your Life" has been as rational in the presentation of this teaching. There are no tantrik mantras, no funny symbols, no voodoo dolls, no kinky Crowley sex-rituals, No Kaos Magick, no airy fairy "love is light" claptrap, no numerology, no Freemasonic conspiracies to rule the world, no Astral travel tickets, no Vortices of Atlantean Time Travel or Montauk, no CIA/FBI/Black Choppers, no UFOlogy, no Reptilian Shape Shifting and the only thing shocking is a few HP Lovecraftian characters presented logically without the Evil Dead make up. The ordinary man who becomes a Stellar Man seems to be just as ordinary from the outside as Stanley Kubrick's hero in "2001 Space Odyssey", yet it is the ordinary and featureless space intitiate who transforms into a Star Child in that film. Baines' work could transform the ordinary man into a Stellar Man without the intermediate experience of the Star Child, though a teaching to mentally "create" this "spiritual child" is detailed. I have read this book about 4 times in 3 years, taking care never to try and memorize any part of the text as that interferes with the teaching of living in the present moment. Every time I read it, some fresh revelation springs up as if it was magically rewritten. That is the proof of a genuine work. It always inspires new ideas in us depending on our evolutionary state. I recommend this book to every student of psychology, philosophy and spirituality.

The Matrix anyone?

The illusion of true knowledge, the illusion of true freedom, people not living in the only true reality: the present moment. WOW! This book is packed with words that blow your mind and also ring true at the same time. I'm still trying to organize all the information in my head so I can start to apply everything practically.I KNEW there was something wrong with the world. The Matrix has most people!

Are You Awake?

Do you want to Awaken? If you want to experience genuine reality, and not the dance of delusion that many mistake for 'reality', this book holds the key.In plain language, and without the usual New Age claptrap, Mr. Baines outlines the matter and method of Hermetic awakening and becoming a Stellar Man. It is both simple and profound, and with depths of insight that many writers wish they had. If you feel a restlessness and urge to become more than what common society wants you to be, you will find this book, and its introductory companion "The Secret Science", a very helpful guide.

a necessary tool to improve your chances in life.

This book discusses the laws of nature in ways we can apply them to our own lives. If you want to take control of your life and not be a victim of the society's collective, this book is for you!


Once in a while, a book comes a long which changes the lives of the people who read it. What John Baines has done, is to give us a glimpse of a profound acient way of seeing the universe as it is. With his myriad examples and explanations, he patiently communicates to the reader the "first step" of a system of knowledge that seems to have been kept alive on the earth for thousands of years. Though available to anyone, it can only be earned by one's own practical effort and merit. One gets the feeling of coming into contact with something alive, immense, universal, and real. Don't be mistaken- this book is an actual invitation into something that can only be experienced for oneself.
