In 1795, a teenager discovered a mysterious circular depression in the ground on Oak Island, in Nova Scotia, Canada, and ignited rumors of buried treasure. Early excavators uncovered a clay-lined shaft containing layers of soil interspersed with wooden platforms, but when they reached a depth of ninety feet, water poured into the shaft and made further digging impossible.

Since then the mystery of Oak Island’s “Money Pit” has enthralled generations of treasure hunters, including a Boston insurance salesman whose obsession ruined him; young Franklin Delano Roosevelt; and film star Errol Flynn. Perplexing discoveries have ignited explorers’ imaginations: a flat stone inscribed in code; a flood tunnel draining from a man-made beach; a torn scrap of parchment; stone markers forming a huge cross. Swaths of the island were bulldozed looking for answers; excavation attempts have claimed two lives. Theories abound as to what’s hidden on Oak Island—pirates’ treasure, Marie Antoinette’s lost jewels, the Holy Grail, proof that Sir Francis Bacon was the true author of Shakespeare’s plays—yet to this day, the Money Pit remains an enigma.

The Curse of Oak Island is a fascinating account of the strange, rich history of the island and the intrepid treasure hunters who have driven themselves to financial ruin, psychotic breakdowns, and even death in pursuit of answers. And as Michigan brothers Marty and Rick Lagina become the latest to attempt to solve the mystery, as documented on the History Channel’s television show The Curse of Oak Island, Sullivan takes readers along to follow their quest firsthand.
 Examining a vast array of esoteric subjects from the earliest
times until this current era, Modern
Esoteric takes a radically different perspective on the social, scientific
and economic issues of our day.

Reality is not what it appears. A
number of disciplines and practices ranging from ancient Vedic literature to
quantum physics, from meditation and prayer to intentional manifestation, to
name a few, are coming together around concepts that are beginning to link
actual physical reality to our thoughts and consciousness in a feedback loop
where our consciousness is not merely influenced by reality as we perceive it,
but reality is, in turn, influenced by our thoughts.

Organized
into three sections (Lifeology, Control and Thrive), Modern Esoteric: Beyond Our
Senses by World Explorer magazine
editor Brad Olsen (CCC Publishing, March 2014) examines the flaws in modern
history and looks at how ancient esoteric teachings, coupled with accelerated scientific
advancements, can be used to reverse the dead-end course the world is heading
towards.. The Lifeology section explores the long and storied “alternative
narrative” of life on this planet. In the Control section, author Brad Olsen
examines how Big Brother is here in the form of the New World Order, and how
they keep the knowledge of humankind’s true nature from the mass population.
Finally, the Thrive section looks at all the ways humans are evolving to
achieve their full potential. Indeed, the revolution is consciousness.
































 






 





Through exploration and
the integration of cutting-edge science with ancient wisdom, Olsen believes the
dawn of our new society is faced on the one hand with global tyranny, or we can
overcome the oppression and advance towards universal abundance and
enlightenment. Without government and media manipulation this can be possible, and
the Golden Age will be attained with the rapid advancement of human
consciousness.
