Mabel Collins offers her views on reality and the world around us in this superb collection of three of her most popular works: Light on the Path, Through the Gates of Gold and The Illumined Way. Each of these works offers an inspirational account of both of the tenets of theosophy, and the outlook its members had upon the world. The first part of Light on the Path is comprised of a a series of rules, which briefly cover the behaviors which adherents to spiritualism promoted by the theosophic society should follow. The second part of the book is more of a simple, instructional guide to the study of the occult. Collins discusses how a person should prepare and undertake their personal study of the supernatural; according to Collins, the laws of 'super-nature' govern the Earth, its atmosphere, and the wider universe. Through the Gates of Gold and The Illumined Way further expound on these topics further, detailing how seekers of spiritual insight and occult knowledge may progress. The Illumined Way quotes Light on the Path frequently, building on and clarifying the earlier text. A celebrated scholar and author in the theosophist movement, Mabel Collins wrote some forty-six separate works, most of them concerning topics of interest to the theosophic and occultist movements of the early 20th century. She was a devotee to theosophism for decades, and became one of the movement's most distinguished members in London after publishing Light on the Path in 1884. Collins advocated further studies of the arcane and occult, so as to further the knowledge of the theosophic society. She contributed and co-edited the magazine Lucifer, which was among the most successful periodicals of the occult to appear in the late 19th century. Here the progress of the movement, and major subjects of occult interest, were published regularly to eager audiences: in short, theosophy became fashionable. Mabel Collins was also rumored to have been the lover of Jack the Ripper. She is said to have discovered five bloodstained ties belonging to Robert Donston Stephenson; a suspect in the police hunt for the notorious serial killer. However, subsequent evidence has eliminated Stephenson from the list of potential murderers.

Author and theosophist Mabel Collins lived in a London entranced by spiritualism and the occult. From séances and apparitions to secret societies, Egyptology, and arcane Eastern philosophies-all of these subjects intrigued many a city-dwelling Victorian of the middle and upper spheres of London society. Collins was one of them, weaving esoteric teachings into many of her creative works. While writing, she would oftentimes enter a trance-like state, jotting down chapters, notes, and aphorisms during her meditative sojourns. She called these "inspired" writings, with "Light on the Path" becoming a seminal work in theosophical and esoteric literature. This Bayley Street Press edition showcases Mabel Collin's "inspired" works with republications of "Light on the Path" (1885), "Through the Gates of Gold" (1887), "The Illumined Way" (1903), and "A Cry From Afar" (1905).

"The book by Mabel Collins, Light on the Path; anybody who wants to travel towards the heights has to understand Light on the Path. It is a small book as far as quantity is concerned, just a few pages, but as far as quality is concerned it is one of the biggest, the greatest books. And, wonder of wonders, it has been written in the modern age. Nobody knows who the author Mabel Collins is. The author never even writes the name Mabel Collins in full, but only M.C. It is just by chance that I have come to know the full name through a few friends of M.C. Why M.C.? I can understand the reason. The writer is only a vehicle, and more particularly so in the case of Light on the Path. Perhaps the Sufi, Khidr - I have told you about him: the spirit who leads people, guides people, helps people - was behind M.C.′s work too. M.C. was a Theosophist. He or she would - I don′t know whether the author is a man or woman, it does not matter anyway - or may not have liked to have been guided by Khidr, the Sufi idea of the ultimate guide. But M.C. would be immensely happy if I use the parallel Theosophical name: they call it K.H. Any name will do. What you call it does not matter... Master K.H. or the mystic Khijra, it is all the same. But the book is immensely helpful. Whosoever wrote it, whosoever guided the writer, that′s beside the point; the book itself stands like a golden tower." -Osho, "Books I have Loved #7" "To be able to stand is to have confidence; to be able to hear is to have opened the doors of the soul; to be able to see is to have attained perception; to be able to speak is to have attained the power of helping others; to have conquered desire is to have learned how to use and control the self; to have attained to self-knowledge is to have retreated to the inner fortress from whence the personal man can be viewed with impartiality; to have seen your soul in its bloom is to have obtained a momentary glimpse in thyself of the transfiguration which shall eventually make you more than man; to recognize is to achieve the great task of gazing upon the blazing light without dropping the eyes and not falling back in terror, as though before some ghastly phantom. This happens to some, and so when the victory is all but won it is lost; to hear the voice of the silence is to understand that from within comes the only true guidance; to go to the Hall of Learning is to enter the state in which learning becomes possible. Then will many words be written there for you, and written in fiery letters for you easily to read. For when the disciple is ready the Master is ready also." "The poise of the body, the balance, must be preserved, not only in dangerous places, but even on the level ground, and with all the assistance Nature gives us by the law of gravitation. So it is with the soul, it is the link between the outer body and the starry spirit beyond; the divine spark dwells in the still place where no convulsion of Nature can shake the air; this is so always."

Mabel Collins (9 September 1851 - 31 March 1927) was a theosophist and author of over 46 books.Mabel Collins was born in St Peter Port, Guernsey. She was a writer of popular occult novels, a fashion writer and an anti-vivisection campaigner. Its writer has veiled the meaning of the rules in the way always customary to mystics, so that to the one who has no grasp on the Truth these pages will probably appear to be a mass of contradictions and practically devoid of sense. The writer was a very important theosophist, member of The Theosophical Society in England, and, at one time collaborated with H. P. Blavatsky in the editorship of the magazine Lucifer, and in one of her books.
