My primary spiritual text is Tarot. I carry a copy with me nearly always. I prefer the

The Qabalistic Tarot by Robert Wang (publisher: Samuel Weiser, 1987) is in my opinion
the single best text for anyone with no previous exposure.

Perhaps one of the most revolutionary books of the 20th Century! TheTransmutation of Freudianism into a Christic-Dionysiac vision. Written aphoristically, this text is teeming
