The Great Rite
After the Second World War, Sanders felt isolated by his occult knowledge, and decided to live a life of the “left hand path” after having drifted from one low-level job to another and had sexual affairs with both men and women.
“I made a dreadful mistake in using black magic in an attempt to bring myself money and sexual success. It worked all right – I was walking through Manchester and I was accosted by a middle-aged couple who told me that I was the exact double of their only son, who had died some years previously. They took me into their home, fed and clothed me, and treated me as one of the family. They were extremely wealthy, and in 1952, when I asked them for a house of my own, with an allowance to run it on, they were quite happy to grant my wishes. I held parties, I bought expensive clothes, I was sexually promiscuous; but it was only after a time that I realized I had a fearful debt to pay”.
One of Sanders’ mistresses who he was particularly fond of committed suicide; his sister Joan was injured in an accidental shooting and shortly after diagnosed with terminal cancer. Sanders, blaming himself, resolved to stop using his magic for selfish reasons and instead teach it to others.
