I must leap to my feet and wave a copy of My Life with the Spirits: The Adventures of a Modern Magician about, yelling at the top of my lungs for every pagan to read this book!! It may not be particularly well-known yet, but I reckon this book will have a big impact at some stage in the future.
The book's author, Lon Milo DuQuette, is a highly esteemed ceremonial magician and a Thelemite, but that shouldn't deter anyone not of those persuasions from enjoying this wonderfully candid and occasionally very funny autobiographical account of his lifelong spiritual odyssey.
Starting with the story of Lon as a choir boy in a small-town fundamentalist Christian church, the tale moves through an obsession with yoga and meditation, experiments with LSD, and encounters with a miraculous pranic healer who lives in a barn with hundreds of cats, until eventually Lon is introduced to the magickal system of the OTO.
The accounts of subsequent magickal operations are refreshingly honest, realistic, and sometimes hysterically funny. From the valuable lessons learned after accidentally rubbing cinnamon oil in one's eyes in the middle of a ritual to the evocation of a demon who seems to specialize in returning stolen VW Kombi vans, every anecdote DuQuette recounts will fascinate, entertain or inspire you.
This book practically reads itself - you won't be able to put it down. Go out and find it!! My Life with the Spirits by Lon Milo DuQuette.
