The Mystery of Death

The dissolution of form is a fundamental element of the cosmic process.

All things change.

All conditions pass away.

No form ever remains permanent…

Existence is a stream, a series of waves, eternal movement.

The irrational desire for permanence and the desire for crystallization must end.

Life and death are bound up together and the terms death and limitation are synonymous.

We live in a fluid universe and, in order to bring to completion the Great Work to which we are all called, mankind must grasp the alchemical truth:  death, or dissolution, is the secret of the Great Work.

The Great Work or Alchemy is the process which transmutes base metal into gold; within humans it’s the process that raises humankind from human to God-Man.

The dissolution of the physical body is a necessary and beneficial manifestation of life and is not the cessation of self-conscious existence.  Death of the physical is therefore not evil as is understood by the unenlightened who feel it is the last enemy to be conquered.  When correctly understood, however, the very forces that lead to physical death are the same that will bring the individual into the consciousness of eternal life.

When an entity chooses to incarnate on the plane of matter, he takes on a garment of flesh, which creates limitation and brings about a death to his previous life. That death in turn brings about his/her beginning in the world of matter.  As part of the continuing spectrum, at the time of physical withdrawal or death, he dies to the world of limitation and returns back to the world of spirit from whence he came and the freedom it offers.

When an individual focuses their consciousness on ‘form’ and identifies almost completely with the principle of death or limitation, he/she interprets freedom from physical life as death. However, as the individual evolves, his consciousness increasingly shifts into that which is not form and more into the world of the abstract or spirit. This is achieved through meditation when the individual begins to use the mind, a reflection of the Will aspect.  This conditions the personality and provides an entrance into the world of the soul, bringing into view the full purpose of the soul resulting in the overcoming of the fear of death.

Death for the average person is a catastrophic experience filled with dread and fear. It conjures up thoughts of leaving a warm, loving, lighted room and being dragged kicking and screaming into a lonely, cold, dark room, hoping for the best but having no assurance of anything.

What is forgotten however is that every night during the hours of sleep we die to the physical plane while alive and functioning on other planes. This is because we have achieved the ability and have the facility to leave the physical body.  However, because most are unable to consciously bring back the recollections from the interval and active living before coming back into the body, they are unable to relate sleep and death.

Death, in essence is only a longer period of sleep between the physical plane.  In sleep, the magnetic thread or current of energy through which the life force is connected to the body is preserved intact and constitutes the path of return to the body. In death, this life thread is severed or broken and the conscious individual cannot return to the physical body. Lacking the principle of coherence, the physical body then disintegrates.  This happens in accordance with the will and purpose of the soul.

In the body, the life current differentiates into two threads and is anchored in two locations.  They are anchored in the body as follows:

  1. The soul thread is anchored or seated in the brain in the region of the pineal gland.  This makes the individual an intelligent, rational entity; self-conscious and self-directing and makes him aware of the world in which he lives according to the place he has reached in his evolution. The development of this mechanism in the three areas of cerebro-spinal, sympathetic and peripheral nervous system and endocrine also helps greatly to facilitate his functioning in the world as a conscious entity.
  2. The second aspect of the soul is anchored in the heart and is responsible for the animation of every atom in the body and constitutes the principle of coherence or integration. The soul aspect is the life principle; the principle of determination; the central nucleus of positive energy by which all the atoms of the body are held in their right place and are all subordinated to the Will of the soul. This life principle uses the blood stream as its mode of expression and its controlling agency.  Through the close association of the blood stream with the endocrine system, man becomes a conscious, living entity governed by and expressing the purposes of the soul in all the activities of human living.

Death is, therefore, the withdrawal from the heart and the head of these two streams of energy.  Withdrawal of these two streams of energy produces a complete loss of consciousness and disintegration of the body. Death is different from sleep in that both streams of energy are withdrawn. The two threads are then unified in the one life thread.  When this happens the individual becomes unconscious and his focus and awareness is elsewhere and no longer toward the tangible physical.

What might not be widely known is that there is that the human body has an underlying, interpenetrating vital body which is the counterpart to the physical body and is even larger than the physical body. This is called the etheric body or etheric double.  It is an energy body composed of force centers and force threads called nadis.  These are the counterparts to the nervous apparatus in the physical body, the nerves and nerve ganglia. There are two places in the human vital body where there are orifices or openings for the exit of the life force.  One opening is in the solar plexus and the other is in the brain, at the top of the head. A closely woven web of etheric matter composed of interlacing strands of life energy cover theses orifices.  In the process of death, the pressure of the life energy beating against the web produces a puncturing or, eventually, an opening. Depending on the point of evolution of the entity, he will exit through either the solar plexus or the top of the head.  The more evolved, rational thinking being, exits through the top of the head.

Physical death occurs through four stages:

  • Withdrawal from the dense physical body
  • Withdrawal from the etheric body
  • Vacating the astral or emotional body
  • Finally the leaving of the mental body

The goal of the Masters of Wisdom is for all humans to die consciously by linking the physical and astral planes such that both will constitute one plane.  This linking of the two planes— physical and emotional, offers the opportunity to achieve a greater understanding of one’s sojourn on this planet.

The following explains how an individual makes his/her transition to the other side:

  1. Exit through the head is by the intellectual type, by the disciples, and the initiates of the world.
  2. Exit through the heart is used by the kindly well-meaning who is a good citizen and intelligent friend and a philanthropic worker.
  3. Exit through the region of the solar plexus used by the emotional, unintelligent, unthinking individual and by those whose animal nature is strong.

Death, like birth, is a symbolic beginning

New information is increasingly becoming available about the process of death leading to a greater understanding of the death and dying process. There is a technique and training for dying that should be learned during one’s life which will lead to ‘conscious’ dying.

The Masters of Wisdom who have guided humanity across the centuries are now preparing humanity for the next step that will enable individuals to move to the next step in the evolution of his consciousness in which there will be a continuity of consciousness and the fear and terror of death will be overcome.

Initiation marks the point at which the individual recognizes in fact, and not only in theory, his identity with the Divine Self in which he has his existence.

It is a conscious process and not something that happens to you in a wave of euphoria.

I have heard many people in the New Age movement talk about Ascension and the idea of taking ascension classes.  I have asked them to explain if, by ascension they are referring to the process that is spoken of that Jesus went through.  They usually become hesitant to associate their process with that of Jesus’.

When I explain that what Jesus went through is the process of Initiation that makes one an Initiate, an Adept and a Master Mason, they usually recoil from the idea.  But, this makes for a great disconnect if followers of Jesus do not want to associate themselves with who he really was, namely, the Wayshower to the path of Initiation and, by extension, his process.

For many in the New Age community there is a lot of difficulty for them to make the transition from mysticism, which is usually associated with the Eastern tradition, to occultism, and the Western tradition.

The prevailing thinking seems to be that everything eastern is holy, spiritual and therefore good while, on the other hand, anything western is unholy and therefore bad but nothing could be further from the truth.  In fact, this thinking reflects the deep separation that exists in the minds of mankind that is responsible for the maladies of the world.

All things are spiritual

It needs to be understood that regardless of one’s culture, race, religious or spiritual orientation, everyone must and will achieve initiation, whether it is in this life or the next or whether it is on this planet or somewhere else.

The process of Initiation liberates the individual from the bondage of ignorance

In fact, what keeps mankind in bondage is his ignorance of his own nature, origin and destiny. And, it is this ignorance he each yearns be liberated from.

The reward or wages at the end of this journey toward liberation is Wisdom, not Gold

I recently heard a minister ask his congregation who would sign up for a life that does not involve material prosperity.  The answer is clear:  Jesus did.  Initiates do.

For the initiate on the path of initiation or liberation, he or she must renounce the world of matter because it is only through this renunciation that he will realize that he has dominion over all Matter.

Each person would do well to regard initiation as a pivotal process in his lifetime and strive to endeavor that every life experience or cycle of life experiences, progress them into a wider field of awareness and expression, all of which will result in their final Initiation.

The underlying theme of the individual evolutionary process is the desire to reconcile each pairs of opposites, which Venus, in Taurus, reveals to the aspirant.  Venus, later in the sign of Capricorn, reveals to man the desire for the whole, the universal, which marks the hallmark of the Initiate.  This process as impacted by Capricorn leads the individual from a self-conscious to group conscious entity. This is how Brotherhood will be established on the planet in the Aquarian Age.   The internal process that each person goes through steadily works this out in the physical, emotional and mental bodies of those prepared to take the next step.

Initiation, which is another name for fusion and/or synthesis, involves the capacity to see, hear, comprehend, synthesize and correlate knowledge.

Initially the body and soul aspects are fused and then, in the final stage the soul infused vehicle merges with his spirit to create a fully illumined entity.

Man is becoming increasingly inclusive due to extra-planetary perceptions

Initiation begins a process that releases the powers of Christ consciousness within the individual resulting in the perfection of the personality vehicle that allows for the transmission of those powers outward, from the causal plane, into manifestation in the physical world.  These practices also modify the chemistry of the blood, which in turn causes a modification of the structures in certain areas of the brain.

The Initiate thus becomes the perfect vehicle, as symbolized by Hermes the messenger of God, because he has now become a God/Man.  He becomes  he “who is called the twice-born” who has built a new physical and not only metaphysical temple of which Solomon’s temple is an example.  These entities are human and live amongst us but go about unseen and/or unknown because they do not occupy the limelight and have no need to do so.

They oversee the administration of this planet

These beings know and understand the quintessence of pain and the depth of “sin” and suffering that mankind has experienced and, because of this knowledge, they are able to adjust their methods for working with humanity to fit the needs of each individual.  They have a love for humanity that triumphs all setbacks because this love is founded on patience, experience and wisdom.  They are distinguished by their knowledge, dynamic will, courage and silence.

Their knowledge, experience and courage are based on ages of endeavor, failure and renewed undertakings, which led to their eventual victory.  Because of this, they are now in service to mankind for a purpose that is enlightened, intelligent and cooperative.  This service to humanity is continuously adjusting itself to meet the needs of the group; to the hierarchical plan and purpose of the Planetary Ruler.   And, because they understand the plan for humanity so well and possess clear illuminated vision, they can bend their will unflinchingly and unswervingly to perform the Great Work of creation.

The Mystery of the Lion and the Unicorn “going up to town” holds within it the secret of initiation in which man must go up to the portal of the temple for admittance into the ‘Hierarchy of Masters’. It also alludes to the “mystic raising” of which Masonry holds the key.

Masonry will be the religious philosophy of the 21st century

The story, The Mystery of the Lion and the Unicorn, also deals with the emergence of the one-pointed consciousness of the initiate.  It also speaks to the defeat of the Lion, which esoterically, has always been used to symbolize the personality, wherein the lower self and animal nature in man is territorial and selfish.

The defeat of the King of Beasts results in the triumph of group, world consciousness and selflessness over selfishness and self-consciousness.  In the true esoteric understanding of this myth, the king of beasts is blinded and killed by the piercing of his eyes and heart by the long horn of the unicorn, and the Initiate is born.

The literal meaning of initiation is “to enter into or begin something”; in the broadest sense it means entrance into the spiritual life.  Therefore, a man who takes his first step into the spiritual kingdom passes out of the purely human kingdom into the superhuman or fifth kingdom.

Just as Man passed out of the animal kingdom into the human kingdom during the stage of individualization; on the path of initiation he now enters upon a life of spirit and begins the final stage of the fivefold evolution.

He groped his way through the Hall of Ignorance for many ages; has gone through the Hall of Learning and is now entering university or, the Hall of Wisdom.

Upon graduation he will receive his degree as Master of Compassion, with Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding.

  • Knowledge—a product of the Hall of Learning may be described as the sum total of the human experience and discovery. It can be correlated, diagnosed and defined by the use of human intellect. Knowledge is concerned with the material side of life, evolution, matter in the solar systems, the planet, the three worlds of human evolution and the bodies of men.
  • Wisdom—the product of the Hall of Wisdom relates to the development of life within the form and with the progress of the spirit through the ever-changing personality vehicles. And, with the expansion of consciousness that succeed each form life to life. Wisdom deals with the essence of things and not with the things themselves. It is the intuitive perception of truth apart from the reasoning faculty; the innate perception that can distinguish between real and unreal. Wisdom might be described as the gradual blending of the mystic and the occultist and is the therefore the erecting of the temple of wisdom on the foundation of knowledge.
  • Knowledge is the science of matter, wisdom is the science of the spirit
  • Knowledge separates and is objective, wisdom is synthetic and subjective
  • Knowledge divides, wisdom unites
  • Knowledge differentiates, wisdom blends
  • Understanding—defined as the Faculty of Thinker in Time, able to appropriate Knowledge as the foundation of wisdom.  Understanding is that which enables the individual to adapt the things of form to the life of spirit. Wisdom deals with the One Self; Knowledge with the Not-Self; Understanding is the point of view of the Thinker or his relationship between Wisdom and Knowledge.

Initiation is the normal process of evolutionary development.  It leads to the mountaintop where vision can be obtained—a vision of the Eternal Now, where past, present and future exist as one.  A vision of the golden pageant of all the races with the golden thread of pedigree carried through the many types of personality vehicles.  A vision of the golden sphere that holds all life forms—deva, human, animal, vegetable, mineral, elemental— held in unison through many evolutions and through which can be seen pulsating life beating in regular rhythm.

Initiation leads to the cave within whose circumscribing walls the pairs of opposites are known, and the secret of good and evil are revealed.  It leads to the Cross and to the absolute sacrifice which must transpire before perfect liberation can be attained. Only then does the initiate stand free of all earth’s shackles, and is held by nothing in the three worlds—Physical, Emotional and Mental. Initiation leads Man to the Hall of Wisdom and puts into his hands the key to all information, systemic and cosmic, in graduated sequence.

The Riddle of the Sphinx…

The Sphinx is the propounder of the eternal riddle, the answer to which is “Man”.

All the Masters of Wisdom know, Man is the great mystery to be solved….

One of the symbols of The Age of Aquarius is that of the Sphinx with the head of a human and the body of a lion.

The sign of the Sphinx is divided into two zodiacal signs: Leo, the Lion and Virgo, the Virgin which together symbolize Spirit and Matter, Soul and Form— God-man.

This relates to the state of human evolution and the conscious realization of duality, therefore, Leo and Virgo together represent the whole man.

The sign of Aquarius, an air sign whose planetary rulers, esoterically, are Uranus and Saturn is that of the Man carrying a water pot, the water that the thirsty souls of humanity seek.  The body of a lion refers to the sign of Leo whose planetary ruler is the Sun which rules the spine and the heart. We must keep in mind that it was during the Leo cycle that mankind’s spine became erect and he was able to stand on his “own two feet”.  Leo’s polar opposite of the sign of Aquarius and rules the blood and the circulatory system through which the spiritual essence brings about the regeneration of the individual.

In this Cosmic and planetary cycle of Aquarius “Man” will come to stand on his own two feet, with an erect spine and an open heart circulating the intelligence of the Sun and unfolding the Divine Image of the God/Man.

Mankind will continue to move his focus and attention for his guidance from the “horizontal” of imperfect teachers to the “vertical” where his Soul will be his guide.

The supreme attainment of the identification of the inner Self of the human personality with the cosmic Self allow all the errors and distortion of the personality to be destroyed with the sword of truth.

The incongruous nature of the Sphinx, like the Greek centaur and the Assyrian man-bull are composite creatures combining human and animal elements.  They speak to the mysteries all signify: the composite nature of man with the higher and lower minds and the relationship between them.  They also subtly refer to the hierarchies of celestial beings that have charge of the destiny of mankind.

These hierarchies refer to the twelve holy animals known to us as the twelve constellations.  These star groups are only symbols of impersonal spiritual impulses.

Chiron, the centaur, symbolizes the intelligences of the constellation of Sagittarius and are the teachers to the sons of Man. These are the custodians of the secret doctrine while, geocentrically, the Sun was passing through the sign of Gemini.

The five-footed Assyrian man-bull with wings of an eagle and head of a man is a reminder that the invisible nature of man has the wings of an eagle, the head of a man, and the body of a beast.

This same concept is expressed through the Sphinx which has been known as the armed guardian of the Mysteries who crouches at the gates of the temple and prevents those who have not made themselves worthy from entering through the portals of Initiation.

The mystery of the Sphinx includes memory….

The solar plexus is the abdominal brain and holds the physical, emotional and mental memory of the personality which is the lower Self.  This memory is tainted by erroneous interpretations of one’s life experiences over many life times.

It is those erroneous interpretations made without the benefit of the perfect memory of the Cosmic Self which never forgets anything and oversees the precise unfoldment of the individual.  In the process of perfect recollection and identification of the lower Self with the Cosmic Self all false notions must disappear.

Mankind is now on the Return Path and on this path the memories of the lower Self which keep the individual in bondage and in confusion must give way to the perfect memory of the Cosmic Self.  This occurs through the alchemical process which takes place in the cells bringing about the destruction of false ideas regarding the One Life.

The inner sense of “hearing” the platform is pure reason is awakened leading to intuition. It must be noted intuition is not the same as psychic impressions and the auditory perceptions of the “voices” of the lower Self.

Intuition is the connection of the individual with the Cosmic Self and the auditory perceptions of the “Voice” to the individual reveal the thoughts in the mind of the Cosmic Self to the lower Self.   In this revelation, truth is known and the individual is able to understand a world that few are able to.

Many speak and very convincingly about a higher experience.  However, there is no permanence to this impressive talk.  All higher experiences, to be permanent, must be achieved as a result of a cellular alchemical process.  This process results in a regenerated individual who no longer believes or has faith in the Cosmic Reality, but as he is guided step by step toward an establishment of the perfect laws with his own Temple.

The perfect fulfillment of the law of freedom will lead him to become a “Knower”…

He knows he has no Will of his.  He also knows he cannot fail and that success is assured because his plans are that of the Greater Plan.  He feels within him the resistless urge of the Will, which others interpret as his own.

The body of the adept being built is by ideas and the field of his mastery is by speech, since, in the occult sense, speech signifies both thought and articulate sound. A Master of his Temple is one who knows the secret of magical speech.  He knows the vibratory values of certain combinations of sound and thought combined and builds a body that is resistant to every hostile external force.  This adept is the Master of the positive and negative expressions of the Astral Light symbolized by two Sphinxes, one back and one white.

The wise knows that to solve the riddle of the Sphinx all the pairs of opposites must be merged— Light and Dark, Good and Evil, Above and Below, etc.….

Only through the downward and outward flow of the Holy Influence of the One Self through one’s personality vehicle can liberation come. The liberated one does not deal in illusions or glamour.  His thoughts and speech embody the truth of Reality as opposed to the lie of appearances.

This is so because he has perfected himself in the art of occult speech he is able to transmit the knowledge of the True Self from the higher planes to the lower.

At the final judgment, when the veil is rent, mankind’s sense of antagonistic dualism will end. That which the Virgin Mother has hidden from expression for eons will be revealed, and the Cosmic Christ who mankind has waited for so long will be manifested on Earth.

When the nature of the world is revealed the mystery of the Sphinx will be over…

The Price of Gold…

The Rich Will Be Poorer And The Poor Will Be Richer…

The statement is referred to often by my religious people and gives credence to their thirst for gold as a way of saying that because they are on the side of holiness and goodness they have been blessed with riches.  Those who struggle under the weight of  so-called poverty wonder how it is that the so-called rich rape and pillage them and are blessed by this supposedly merciful God…

One only has to sit and reason this out to know that the logic of this makes no sense.

A fact that must be borne in mind in reference to the quote: ”The richer shall be richer and the poor shall be poorer”, is, this statement was made in reference to the Age of Pisces.  An Age in which mankind satiated himself with more and more of life’s earthly possessions…

This is one of the characteristics of the Age we just left.  It was the Divine Plan for man to acquire as much as he thought he could consume until it made him sick to his stomach.

A wise partner gives guidance and counsel to his child but never prevents him from exercising his so-called free will.  The wise parent knows too well the value of experience.

The Divine Parents knew that the Earth plane was set up to allow for an adventure into, and, with Gold or Matter.

Some of the lower attributes of the Piscean Age are: Greed, Selfishness, Separation, Religious Fanaticism and the Suppression of the Feminine.

What many are missing as they look at the unfolding events of the day, is that the Age of Piscean has ended and although we are experiencing the wash-over effects of the Age just past, the new agenda, that of the Aquarian Age, is the order of the day, going forward…

When you are inclined to become despaired by what seem to be happening, remember also that the new world we say you want, and hope for, cannot be established on the foundation of the old one…

Hence: One cannot put new wine in old sheepskin…

Another famous saying that speaks to the same point: “Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die…”

One must die to what no longer works.  He must die to outworn, outmoded erroneous ideas.  Ideas which have no foundation on which to exist in the Aquarian Age.

For the reversal to take place and for everyone to be paid his just wage, the Divine Law must be established on the Earth.

That is what is emerging…

The New Earth….  The New Kingdom…

Established on the Divine Principles of Brotherhood, Unity and Oneness in which the Divine Feminine, the Creative Principle, takes her rightful place in the Administration of the planet.

It is always interesting to listen to people who call themselves light workers fret and worry when things become unstable in the world…

I often ask them: “I thought you said you wanted a new kind of world; how did you think it was going to come about?”

It is one thing to want everything to be wonderful but there is a process to everything and to safeguard oneself against fear and panic he or she must become acquainted with the plan for the transition from the old to the new and what that change entails.

No spaceship is coming to rescue anyone!

The only vehicle that matters and is going to offer any protection is the house of light you have been meticulously building with the aid of your own soul.

When everyone else was trying to acquire all the gold and matter that is impermanent, you were building the house of light required for the next phase of this journey.

After all, that was what coming here was all about.

The true wage of this long journey on this plane of matter is not Gold, but Wisdom.

Solomon discovered this and that is why he is often referred to as a symbol of Wisdom.

It would behoove everyone to investigate why Solomon is described as the wisest man that ever lived.  He who discovered the illusion of Gold or Matter.

The foundation of all the systems that have for far too long supported the most unjust practices toward our fellowman is now crumbling and giving way to what we all know in the recesses of our hearts needs to be a more equitable world…

This brings with it enormous fears.  Though most want a better world, they have very little to no idea of how that will be achieved.

It is also not true that we do not know what is going to happen.  It is known.  To reduce the anxiety, it is time to acquaint oneself with the blueprint of the unfolding plan our older brothers and sisters left for us.

Knowing that this time would come, the members of the Fifth Kingdom, symbolized by the Floating Capstone, are behind the scenes midwifing humanity through this time of enormous change…

Soon they will be seen and known…

All the struggles and pain of the Path of evolution have prepared these souls for this moment in the evolution of humanity, when they will come to the aid of mankind.

These souls are not coming from the skies.

They are right here but can only be seen by those whose focus is not the things that glitter but are pure gold.

This New Age with its 180 degree reversal puts the focus on Spirit, the “Cause”, and not “Matter”, the effect…

These radical changes now occurring are bringing massive fears to the surface for so many who are not able to see what lie ahead…

All our systems are based in separation, hate, prejudice, and ignorance.  This will, and must end.

For many this will be uncomfortable.

We will get to see how invested many are in things remaining as they are.  Those who call themselves “of the light” might be discovered to be most invested.

What will happen when there are no more wars to be fought based on the erroneous concept of “God” versus “Satan”?

What will happen as the pairs of opposites continue to merge…

What will happen when one discovers the person he thought was all wise is the most ignorant.

Interesting times are ahead.

You will grow to appreciate the beauty and power of the Age; if not immediately, in time…

However, the Divine Plan for the transition from the Age of Matter to the Age of Spirit is on track and the new reality will look remarkably different from what we now know…

On the one hand, the public wants things to continue as they are, and even have more of the same with even better yield financially to sustain a secure future rooted in gold and matter…

On the other hand, those who feel disenfranchised are hoping that things do not remain the same in all these systems in which they have not had a voice…

Those whose voices are strongest and who represent the evocative cry of the ninety (90%) percent hold sway over the ten(10%) percent …

Will the power of the spiritually rich tip the balance in favor of a New World in which Brotherhood, Unity and Prosperity for all is the new normal?

I know it will!

The indication from all the information left to us by the Masters of Wisdom and the Arcane Teachings is that the spiritually rich will win this battle between Separation and Unity…

They will triumph…

What is taking place is a re-think about how we live our lives on this planet going forward…

The world will not disappear but most will agree, business as usual cannot and will not continue.

Earth will define riches differently and with this re-orientation of the mind the fear of loss or of not having enough will dissipate.

What is often missing in mankind’s perspective is that his plan for his future bears little resemblance with the soul’s plan for that same future

And given that the soul brought each personality into creation for its purpose, it is clear to see in what direction we are going.

The year 2012 is finally here and the Mayan calendar is slated to end.

Let me remind everyone that the word Maya means illusion.

That is what will end…illusion!

All Arcane Teachings from all cultures, not just the Mayan, knew this day would come.

The Masters of Wisdom have long prepared for the day when mankind would wake out of his slumber and begin to participate consciously in the process of his “self-knowing”.

The time is now…

Few are aware that the reality they now live bears little resemblance to the Divine Plan for their lives and for this planet.

The veil of illusion will finally be parted, giving humanity the opportunity to see for the first time what lies behind the curtain.

The scales will fall from the eyes of humanity and he will begin to truly live and not just exsist!

He will understand the mystery of true GOLD…

For many it will be very difficult since they have been so steeped in a world that makes no sense to the rational mind but which they have embraced so completely.

Note: Spirit is the Highest form of Matter and Matter is the Lowest form of Spirit!

The Esoteric Meaning of Christmas…

In the American Indian story of birth they say a baby is born in nine months and ten moons…

In this story is described the first and the second birth…

The day we celebrate as the birth of Jesus, 25th of December, falls in the sign of Capricorn, the tenth month of the zodiacal calendar and, according to the wisdom teachings, this is not the date of his first birth but rather the sign under which he attained his second birth, on the spiritual mountain-top, having climbed the steep and arid terrain that the mountain-goat, representative of Capricorn, must encounter on his ascent.

Capricorn, a cardinal Earth sign, one of the most important signs and associated with initiation,. It is said to be the sign in which humanity attains liberation from the bondage of ignorance.

It is one of the three horned signs that hide the mysteries of— the Horn of Strife; the Horn of Plenty; and the Horn of Life.

Aries, the Ram, —The Mystery of God the Father—Creation

Taurus, the Bull,—The Mystery of the Son—Redemption

Capricorn, the Goat, — The Mystery of the Mother/Holy Spirit—Liberation

Aries, the Ram leads mankind into the creative life of Earth, and into the darkness of matter. The downturned horns of the Ram therefore signify the involutionary cycle or the coming into manifestation.

In Taurus, the upturned horns of the Bull with the circle below, depicts the push of man, which represents the “Bull of God” within man, pushing him towards the goal of illumination and the emergence of the soul from the bondage of duality.  The two horns symbolize and protect the “eye of light” in the center of the Bull’s forehead which is the “single eye”, as spoken of in the New Testament that will flood the body to become full of light at the final initiation.  The Bull leads man into desire in search of “wrathful satisfaction” of greed and of anger, which eventually changes into the golden light of illumination and becomes the bestower of light and lightens the once dark path of the traveler.

Capricorn, the Mountain Goat hides within it the symbolism of the unicorn in which the two horns and the single eye are blended and depict the long straight horn in the center of the forehead.  The mountain goat leads man into arid paths in search of food and water but it is the goat that is capable of climbing to the mountain top.

Aries, the Ram in his transformational process first becomes the Scapegoat, when he does, he then seeks illumination as the Bull of God, climbs the mountain top in the semblance as the Goat and changes its shape into the Unicorn.

Under the Divine Plan, these three signs are the great transformers that open the doors of the three higher centers in man: the head, the heart and the throat.

Looking at Capricorn from the perspective of its relationship to the second or spiritual birth, we see how the Divine Plan for man’s decent into matter, his desire to experience all that matter can offer and then his emergence out of the illusion of matter into Light, is what is represented during the Christmas season that we call the Festival of Lights.

Capricorn is an earth sign and in this sign is expressed the densest point of concrete materialization of which the human soul is capable.  In every human being is the seed— this earth, this earthiness— and it is this in Man that makes him “the First Adam” and at the same time holds within himself as does the sign, the seeds of death and finality.  This death takes place finally, and eventually, in the sign of Pisces.  This point should be pondered, since it has great meaning.

When matter and all that it connotes reaches a certain degree of density and “hardness” it is easily shattered and destroyed.  The man, newly “born” in Capricorn on the mountain top brings about his own destruction due to his fundamentally materialistic nature together with the “blows’ of fate, which are enactments of the Law of Karma.

In every incarnation Man repeats a certain measure of concreteness, and repeatedly undergoes the same destruction until the release of the life within the form—the release of the spirit out of bondage to matter.

The liberated Man then begins to rebuild the form from the ashes of that destruction but on a new foundation…

Capricorn is often seen as the sign of conclusion since it marks the point beyond which no further ascent in any particular life cycle is possible, and is esoterically referred to as the sign of “periodic arresting.”

It becomes impossible for the soul to progress under its existing form so it necessitates that the individual make his descent into the valley of pain, despair and death before he makes a new attempt to scale the heights again.  This innate need to scale the heights in all aspects is the urge that motivates so many to climb the highest mountain, whether it be Mt. Everest, Kilimanjaro, etc. or to reach the summit of one’s emotional and mental experience.

Humanity is now poised to emerge into the light and relative glory of a new civilization.  Mankind will, at the same time, conquer the last remaining summit:  the mountain top of spiritual attainment!  At this time all that which is dense materiality and earthly grandeur will remain, but this time it will be beneath the feet of humanity

Hint:  Pisces rules the feet

Capricorn is the sign in which a new cycle of effort begins for both the individual and the initiate.

The struggles, the fights, the strains against the forces of the underworld which mark the path of the initiate are distinctive of the Capricorn experience.

In ancient times there were only ten signs and Capricorn was the last on the zodiacal wheel since humanity had not yet then evolved the capacity to accept the influences of Aquarius and Pisces.  Even earlier, there were only eight signs until Libra and Virgo emerged in response to humanity’s needs.

When individualization took place in man under the sign of Leo, and the seed of “Christhood” was planted in Man under the sign of Virgo, Man became able   to nurture this “Divine Idea.”  This Divine Idea of Christhood now involuted into Earth under the sign of Aries comes into full flower in Capricorn, culminating into the birth of the “Christ Child.”

Mankind as a whole is in a state of turmoil as he is about to step forward into self-conscious unfoldment and into a sense of personal responsibility— the first flower and fruit of self-conscious awareness.

This is a journey walked alone, initiated and sustained only by the inner light of each individual’s un-quenching desire for self-knowledge.

May this be a different kind of Christmas for you as you contemplate your conscious journey towards the summit…

America Will Bend But Will Never Break…

The country is at a crisis point and this too is what the passage toward enlightenment looks like and for which this country was created to provide as a symbol to the world.

The pairs of opposites must be reconciled and the middle path must be achieved

That is the only path to enlightenment…

As I travel internationally and listen to foreigners converse about the United States of America and its future, it is clear that many have a love-hate relationship with America.  They admire the can-do attitude, the optimism, and marvel at how Americans always think they can solve every problem while, on the other hand, they feel Americans are too sure of themselves.  Dear friends, it is that spirit of ‘failure is not an option’ that brought the Republic into being and will see it through to its final successful destiny!

I must admit that Americans can be very arrogant at times, and that is because many forget or are not aware of the true destiny of this unique country and what constitutes the idea called America.

America is the young child of Europe and, like the Aquarian-minded young people of the 70’s who, in spite of the brilliance and innovative ideas that made them millionaires and billionaires before they went bust, they realized that without the wisdom of their parents’ generation  they were bound to course correct, and they did – and America will too!

America will increasingly realize that the “parent” has an important contribution to make in America’s success in fulfilling its destiny.  The idea for this democratic republic began long before Europe and America existed as nations.  It was prophesied that the twin brothers Manasseh and Ephraim, Great Britain and the United States, respectively, would exist to fulfill the purpose for which mankind was seeded on our planet, under the careful supervision and direction of the Star, Sirius.

It was the six masonic lodges of England, France, The Netherlands, Scotland, Ireland and Germany that laid the foundation for this new Democratic Republic, and it was to Francis Bacon of the British Empire that the task was entrusted to set up the Republic, based on the Masonic Principles, that would guide America to its true destiny.

This destiny is very different from what most Americans have in mind and I think this is a good time to go back and revisit those principles and why, on that basis, the country is on track, despite appearances to the contrary.

I have heard much talk about China and India, and other nations, rising in economic power such that they will soon overtake the USA.   Like all great empires that have been known to rise and fall they say, America will be the next to fall since its influence is waning on the planet.

Not true!   America is growing up and becoming an adult.  America will always be a prosperous nation but it will put its spiritual agenda, and I emphasize spiritual and not religious, in right order to matter or the physical, to fulfill its mission.  America is a rising star.  The assumption that America is due to fall is based on the notion that America is just like all the great empires that have ever existed.  However, what is mostly unknown is the unique and singular premise on which America was created.

America’s greatness is not predicated on its military and financial power as most other empires have been.  Having now demonstrated to the world how matter, physical and monetary, can be acquired and exalted, it is now embarking on the true mission for which the country came into existence,enlightenment!

This too is the goal for each individual.

It is no mistake that the iconic image of America is a woman standing in New York’s harbor with a book in one hand and a torch in the other.  The allegorical symbolism, that this country was established to be a light to the world and that Enlightenment must be achieved, ultimately, through the power of the mind.  Lady Liberty, who was originally named Liberty Enlightening the World, stands as a constant reminder to America and the world that the true purpose for which America was created is to be a beacon of Light.

America has an Aquarian soul, meaning, its true destiny, as it unfolds, is to be the example to the world of:

  • Brotherhood (of Mankind);
  • Synthesis;
  • Restoration of equal feminine power and rulership (essential to mankind’s liberation);
  • How true masonry provides the vehicle for higher knowledge and initiation; and,

America will demonstrate to the world what happens when a country, as well as the individual, turns its face toward symbolic Jerusalem… The Abode of Peace… and reverses its path out of matter toward Oneness with one’s true Self, who was brought into matter, to fulfill a specific purpose.

As with an individual, each country has a destiny that is determined by the time of its birth which marks and defines how it will unfold throughout the three stages of life:

  • youth
  • adulthood
  • old age

America celebrates July 4th as its birth date and, with this information we know that it was created to be a vehicle to “house” the divine idea of Initiation, to give birth to the idea of Enlightenment – nurture it, and to bring it to perfection over time.

This country was created to be an incubator where anyone and everyone would come to play out the concept of “E pluribus Unum”…Out of Many One People.  Through education and an understanding of our shared origin, these different cultures and races of humanity would come to intermingle and, through a more intimate knowledge of each other, come to know that though “appearances” suggest they are different and unrelated, they are indeed ONE.

Just as the two pillars in Solomon’s temple, one black and one white, reflect an apparent disconnect, when penetrated with the mind of pure reason, it can be proven that each is a perfect reflector of the other, and that in fact, when the true nature of each is understood what emerges is only the illusory aspect of separation.

Regardless of who is sitting in the presidential role in the USA, no person occupies this position without being allowed to do so by the spiritual hierarchy.  America is a spiritual idea and unfolds along the masonic agenda laid down by Sirius who brought it into existence with a definite plan, with a specific outcome.

Each political party represents one half of the pair of opposites and, to understand why each party’s agenda is allowed to play out, it must be understood that this is to bring into clearer focus to the minds of the citizens of America and the world what is needed in the struggle to find the middle way, and what the process looks like.  The pairs of opposites are what mankind came to the planet to play out and to reconcile!

We are not falling apart, we are right on track.  The institutions and, our society as a whole, which have been immersed in matter, are seeing their foundation crack, as it should.  As individuals and as a country we have defined ourselves by how much material possessions and societal position we have and can amass.  Well, that illusion is falling away and countries such as China, India, and others, are now moving in to fill that necessary role.  It was important for America to show to the world what happens when one becomes so immersed in materialism, greed, selfishness and separation. Other countries will now try that on to see what it looks and feels like …to become satiated with all that matter has to offer and, like the Prodigal Son and King Solomon, turn its back on what no longer satisfies, reverses its step, and move to the next phase of the journey.  This is America’s next step!

It is to America that the task was given to lead humanity out of bondage fo ignorance and the illusion to matter.

We have a future ahead that is much, much brighter than anything we have known before or can even imagine, but for that future to become a reality, the foundation of the old must be destroyed.  We cannot tarry any longer in the land of the “splendors and excitement of the underworld” where greed, selfishness and separation abide.  Though the allure is great, they only satisfy our lower natures.  To tarry too long in this world is to run the risk of losing one’s soul.

It is through the conscious grace and mercy of the elder brothers of the race of man, who are among us and who have themselves overcome the illusions of matter, that the foundation in our systems are breaking.  They influence the minds of mankind to bring about mental regeneration, causing liberation from the bondage of ignorance and form.

We are a mighty people, all of us…black, white, brown, yellow and everything in between.  Let us awaken to the task before us and for which we are more than able.  America, the world is waiting, watching and hoping.  All know in their souls that if a better world cannot be realized in the United States of America, it cannot happen anywhere – they know this in their souls!

It is understandable that people become afraid when they don’t know what lies ahead.  I am here to remind us all of the foundation on which this great country was founded and that…”America will bend, but will never break”.  America’s critics will be disappointed but should take heart because their success and destiny is also tied up with America.  No other people on the planet have the ability to course correct as quickly and the time is coming when they will need to do just that, and in a hurry, and they will.

May Light Be Extended Upon You!
