Dated: February 25, 2012
Olivia asked me to send this Review of your book to be published on all global sites. She is delighted with it as you will see!
REVIEW OF BAST CAT GODDESS OF ANCIENT EGYPT by LINDA ILES, Published by ISIS-HOUSE Publishing, 2012.
This erudite and inspired revelation of the Myths, Magic and Mysteries of the Cat Goddess is a New Aeon tribute both learned and mystical. As one who remembers the poet
W.B.Yeats and AE - George Russell, visionary poet, essayist and artist, I acknowledge that Linda Iles is worthy to enter their Golden Dawn esoteric company.
Too often I read books brimful of information about Divine Beings yet which show no direct spiritual contact by the author, who can only access other people's experiences.
I quote from the Preface Poem to Bast:
"Lady of the Beautiful East
You come to us on a River of Light
From a Field of Unwearied Stars."
So for those who wish to feel the Divine Essence of Bast as Solar, Stellar and Lunar Deity, yet who incarnates as a Mother holding a basket of kittens, I warmly recommend this beautiful book.
