I hope i dont bother anyone with this topic, but i baught the M.T.H.O.S from William R Wraithe, I know the Golden Dawn and some others dont like him, because they say he released some of their secrets to the puplic and the book is to dangerous.

But I would like to know some other opinions and views, i am really interested in that book and i would like to know if the rituals are such dangerous as it seems to be. I searched the web, but i found only a bit of information. I dont want to annoy anybody with this thread. If i do so please tell me.

I don't have any comments on the book (never heard of it, though I seriously doubt you could cause yourself or anyone else any major harm by merely reading a book.) though I will say that you can go ahead and be as annoying as you want as long as you don't break the rules.

Seriously, we have plenty of annoying people here and knowing that you actually care if you are annoying or not shows us that you aren't really going to be trouble.

Well, a google search for the book name and the author name come up with a lot of sites talking about using it to become a werewolf... hopefully if it contains anything close to even one secret of the GD it would have more content than that in it.

A search of the author's name brings up only a couple of small websites. Nothing in wikipedia or any other large website, and nothing at all tying his name to the GD. Unless someone more knowledgable about this author and/or book comes along and says otherwise, I'm going to go with the idea that his book is being hyped up.

Mastery does not occur when you've performed a feat once or twice. Instead, it comes after years of training, when you realize that you no longer notice when you're performing a feat which used to require so much effort. Even walking takes years of training for a human: why not everything else?

they say he released some of their secrets to the puplic and the book is to dangerous.

Many groups are out there that like to keep their techniques secret.  Most of the people here, however, believe that techniques are better refined when they see the light of day and face open analysis.  Most claims of techniques being "too powerful" or "too dangerous" to be discussed openly turn out to either not be so powerful, or not be so dangerous.  However by keeping things a secret, groups are often able to maintain a mystique of something being powerful or unique even if it is not.

You didn't by any chance notice the name of the original poster?

There are three main sections in the book with a number of different rituals to complete the goal of the section and a lot of other stuff, like meditation technics, shields, sigils and recipes for ingridients. I heard a lot about his writer and i hoped to find some verified information about him and the book. I dont think the book is a fake or hyped, cant explain it, i feel it. And its a little bit strange, when you read the book its seems to change. You discover passages and phrases and your sure there was no such passage before.

Perhaps you can make a PDF of the book so we can read it?

You can buy it as a pdf file at lulu.com, it would be a copyright violation if i post a pdf document of the book. Sry, i thaught someone has read it and know the writer or has some information about both.

Are you trying to become a werewolf?...

Seriously?...

I wanna merge with my animal spirit wolf. Its not my goal to become a werewolf, that could be a side effect but i dont know that and its not a werewolf like the movie thing, its more shapeshifter like.

Pretty much bogus I'd estimate. The human body isn't made to contain a nonhuman spirit, nor is it made to morph in any way.

It does, however, have the capacity to change one's personality to include believed traits of an animal. If that's what you're going for, a bit of simple meditation would work wonders.

Berserkerganger would do something like that, merging with the spirit animal. The concept is taking on the ferocity of an animal that you desire to be more like and to take that into battle. Going into such a frenzied trance takes a while to do properly, so they say.

However, I'm not sure you can really literally merge with an animal spirit. I don't claim to know everything about the Metaphysical anatomy of the soul, but it sets off a lot of my natural alarms.

See what happens, give it a try. If it doesn't work out, try to take a different approach to achieve the same ends (IE: Meditating upon the qualities of the animal you admire.)

Also, I just remember, I seem to recall something about ancient Asian warriors merging with demon spirits in order to improve their effectiveness in combat. May be worth looking into.
