Ask Occult Questions page.
The word "occult" come from the Latin "occultus" meaning
concealed or covered over. It is about exploring what is hidden within nature
and society ... it is what "they" are not telling you.
The negative connotation given to the word "occult" (that somehow
anything occult is evil or dangerous) comes from the medieval Christian church
and was applied to any religion or mystical practice that was "not Christian".
Hollywood movies often portray "occultist" as dark, dangerous people, and the
"occult" as something inherently bad (which
only increases misconceptions about the " occult").
Things labeled occult have been all earth based religions such as paganism;
rune stones ...
Wicca ... even yoga and
Buddhism have been called
"occult". Does this label may apply? Maybe, since all these mystical arts, practices or
religions explore the powers and mysteries concealed within nature and the universe.
