Most things in the book are written out of that subconscious and the Soul of this World. They are rituals and practices that are designed to work best for humankind. Never mind its mechanics. Not that the mechanics are not true - it is simply unnecessary to know them. In the end, it's all about the imagination.
What most New Ageists do not know (or tries to hide) is that we are not free in our thoughts and imagination. We are designed to think and imagine in a way that we are cultured in this civilization. It takes more than positivity, a spirit of community, or a mere change in attitude. It takes a Dark Night of the Soul. And genuine hard practice. And it takes acceptance of all the elements of life. Both so-called good and evil.
Anyway, while most religions are uniquely indigenous, all the major ones contain distortions of the actual histories of the past. Take the flood archetype for example. The details of the Great Deluge is recorded everywhere, in the Olympian mythology, in the Babylonian, in the Egyptian, and of course in the Bible. It's what really happened to Humankind as they went out of control in their lust for wealth and power.
Humans know what the Yang aliens did to them deep within their subconscious. But in their ignorance, and out of fear of Darkness, they worship them in the form of gods or God. Long before the Yang gods' interference, we as humans imagined up Nurturing figures (Devas) who we can pray to and wish upon to get what we want. Then there are Protective figures (Asuras) who we relied on for divine protection and to bring judgment and control to those who didn't follow their will.
Usually the polytheistic religions are dominated by the deva force, while the monotheistic religions are dominated by the asura archetype. Investigate the Zoroastrian and Hindu religions and their dynamics throughout history and you will see what happened. Throughout history they have fought, in the form of gods and titans, in imbalance and ignorance of the Truth that is behind and beyond all this.
These are corruptions of the Mother and Father figure of our World Soul. The Yang Souls and Spirit used these figures and wrong desires of humankind. They came embodied as gods or God promising all these at the price of one thing: the control of our Souls. The subservience and worship. All for false promises that cease our growth.
However, some of the gods in the religions or "archetypes" are linked to the life and memories of magicians on this planet who wanted to teach Truth to humankind. These are the ones mentioned in the book. I'm not sure if the names of any of these religions are the names of actual magicians that stood on this planet. But I'm pretty sure they found their way through all this Yang religions, demonized and misunderstood.
What is Truth really? The Truth is that we are in control of our own lives. We are the cause of our own pain and suffering. The Mother and Father figure of this world are ultimately not there to nuture or protect you forever. They are there so that you eventually become One with it. All of our Souls are connected to the Soul of this planet. In the end, we are all Earth on Earth. The more we realize this Oneness, the more we begin aligning our own desires with that of this planet, the more we realize that we are the microcosm of a macrocosm that is Earth and Universe... then the more we are free to desire without transgressing the balance of this world. And there we are free of Karma. Not through abstinence and subservience. Not through lust and aggression. But through knowledge and wisdom of the Self.
In the end, none of these gods or religions matter. Not even the teachers. Nothing is more important than the governance of our own Soul. The Memory of the oneness of this Univeres. The New Ageists act as though achieving oneness with the Universe is total bliss and the end of all desires. But it is not. They don't realize that the Universe too has desires. Not only will they become your desires, but your innermost desires will become that of the Universe.
And that is when magick and healing occurs. That is when an active force enters your being and all hell breaks lose and you begin enjoying that hell regardless of what others see of this magick. We have the power to change heaven into hell, and hell into heaven. I remember my friend used to love this saying...
No gods or God or teachers or guide or whatever is more important than this Oneness.
