Inside the book Thought-Force In Business and Everyday Life by William W Atkinson (1900) - Valedictory I found the following paragraph Quote:

"The average reader will rest satisfied with the "practical" side of the subject, and will not feel inclined to enter into the occult phase. To the few who feel an inclination to pursue the subject still further, who would penetrate behind the veil, there are other sources of information open, which I will be pleased to point out to those who may so request. A letter will reach me if address to me at 30 Auditorium Building, Chicago. " (Written 1900)

I'd be very interested in learning more about the mentioned subject.

Could someone help me with that information I'm looking for?

Occult knowledge means hidden knowledge.

When this book was written around 1900, alot more knowledge was considered occult than is now.

The world has changed alot since then and we now even have the opposite problem - information overload - thanks to the advent of the Internet. Also, many of the ideas that were considered radical then are becoming more mainstream now.

So I think the occult knowledge you may be seeking may be more widely known now than you think, so sending a letter to that particular address may not be necessary :)

Which specific aspect of the subject of Thought-Force are you looking for more information about?

Thank you for your response. I guess I found the answer after reading more of Mr. Atkinsons works.
