is occultism, and western esotericism a bunch of hogwash?
neo-platonism, hermeticism, gnosticism?

I don't think so...but that's a very long hard-road.
The purpose of mysticism, is to eventually be able to rise to rise from the dead and become
Immortal, which is a very difficult thing to do. Even Jesus Christ struggled casting out demons.
People think being psychic means makes you a spiritual-person, and that's just not true.
Believe it or not, there are people in this world who can fly and teleport; bi-locate
and remain invincible; speak any human-language; walk on fire/on the ocean-floor etc.
Miracles like that are nothing new. In Eastern-culture, they are called SiddhisSource(s): Jesus Christ studied in India/Tibet.

Not in the least. But it takes years to understand and is dangerous. Years that are better spent learning how to make money. Few people are equipped for it & you can end up in a mental hospital.
