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 many 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!

What is Truth…

What Is Truth…

Many seem so convinced of their truth and become incensed when others do not agree with them…

They think they
are absolutely correct…

There is an old axiom which reads: “Nothing is ever what it appears to be…”

One is also only able to see what he/she has evolved the
capacity to see…

It is interesting to listen to the tirades and watch the
tantrums of supposed adults who are convinced that anyone who does not agree
with them are idiots…

Many forget or are not aware of all the reversal of roles he has played in over the course of his many sojourns on this planet and elsewhere to gather data…

That loss of memory has caused much confusion, blaming
and despair..

With this loss of memory, most rely on their outer sight
and outer hearing to convey truth, sadly…

In a world based on duality and the inaccuracy of that
duality, what the five-sense reality reports can hardly be trusted but instead
of asking their souls to reveal truth to their minds and hearts the dogged
pursuit of distortion continues..

The United States of America is approaching the two
hundred and thirty fifth anniversary of his recorded history…

The level of displeasure at all levels of government is
palpable…

The citizens here as in most countries look to their
government to provide them with a great measure of physical security, and an
environment in which to experience financial success and in general the ability
to enjoy general happiness in the land of the free…

The general election season is fast approaching and there
is another round of excessive spending to elect the person and party he or she
is convinced will this time get the job done…

The question I have never quite heard answered is:  What is this job either the Republican or the
Democrat in this country is expected to get done and how will one know when the
job is done?

The question is: Do people really expect the government
to provide them the peace and happiness they seek…?

I would imagine that would be when everyone has enough
money and physical amenities to not have to worry and to be able to live
happily ever after…

What is so tricky, however, these are the people who will
never have enough to make them satisfied…

Since one’s security and a sense of well-being cannot be
achieved by the acquisition of any of these things, the insatiable appetite for
those things will always be present.

Public recognition, the need for approval, and the need
to be loved then becomes an endless quest…

We are living in a very interesting time of change…

A time of major change…

The wise have always said: Unless one is able to
formulate the right question, he is not ready to hear the right answer…

I would suggest that mankind begin his quest for the
right answers to his deepest questions by first asking himself this ancient,
ancient question which he alone can and must answer:

What Do You Want?

Only when one is able to answer that question, can he
embark on a focused path to find whatever he is says he really wants…

Everyone who has ever answered that question to his/her
soul’s satisfaction discovers in the process of the journey, that what he
thought he wanted, turns out to be quite different than expected when he first
started out.

However, the journey must be walked…

The feet are the symbols of understanding, and to walk
the journey of life on one’s feet, and not through any artificial means or
second-hand sources, he gains understanding and expands his consciousness…

Only through this
process is self-discovery…

What mankind is really searching for, he himself is not
clear

The intent for self-knowledge must be the quest that
motivates the journey…

That deep intent and that thirst for self-knowledge is
what allows the soul to make serious contact with the individual to begin the
process revealing to him the truth of himself and by extension his fellowman
and the world around him…

The individual begins to have a cosmic view of his part
in it and the reason for embarking on this planetary journey to unfold his
destiny…

The information revealed is between the individual and
his soul alone and no one else can…

No self-proclaimed guru has this information for you…

This relationship between the soul and the individual is
one forged in a struggle, a hunger, thirst and a desire to KNOW one’s self more
than anything else…

There are ascension classes popping up all over for all
those who would fall easy prey to those offering a relieve from the
difficulties and challenging experiences of life…

Offering an easy way to enlightenment which requires one
to sit in a state of suspended consciousness and experience a feeling of bliss
that last for a moment…

There can be no permanency to this artificial state of
bliss because the pre-requites have not been met…

You might have heard this statement:

“Everybody
wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die…”

The second birth cannot be realized without a spiritual
death to erroneous and outmoded ways of thinking…

It is this outmoded thinking that is responsible for all
the pain and suffering mankind

Everyone in his soul desires peace, even those who wage
war…

Permanent peace…

A place of stillness at the heart of his being…

That place where he comes to rest when the river has met
the ocean…

This is what the ancients call Judgement Day…

And judgment comes for each person individually and personally

He is Home…

He is at one with himself…

He is at that place where the roaring waters of life can
no longer disturb…

However one does not get to this place by denying the
reality of his many creations over all his many life times…

I watch and listen with interest the many condemnations
one party has for the other…

One race has for the others…

One culture has for another…

One religion has for the other…

Each one claiming to know what God says…

What God wants…

What this God told them..

What this God did not tell the other…

Each claiming one insisting that the God who spoke to
him/her is the legitimate God…

Each convinced they are “special” and the apple of God’s
eyes…

They are the chosen and not the other group…

Their race is superior and the others not…

Their political party is of God and the other of the
Devil…

I am convinced we are in a very crucial time which will
reveal starling facts about all of the above…

Only those who
have spent their time becoming mature in thinking will be able to emotionally
and mentally survive…

Those who are intent on remaining children will have a
rude awakening…

Those mature souls on our planet all know the end to this
childish thinking and behavior is coming to an end, and quickly…

The United States of America is the land identified,
established and developed to be the place where the most evolved souls exist…

The country, as a whole, has evolved the capacity to deal
with the harsh realities of the revelations to come…

A 180 degree reversal in thinking must occur…

There is a passage in the King James Version of the Bible
which says:

When I was a child, I thought as a child, but now that I
have become a Man, I put away childish things/thinking…

Many will have to grow up overnight and I wish for
everyone the capacity to make this shift, and quickly…

For those who are not capable, having spent their whole
existence in kindergarten…

They will mature somewhere else…

Graduation would have come and they did not make the
grade…

May Light Be Extended Upon You!!!

The Star Sirius…

The Star, Sirius…

Centuries ago when it seemed the arcane knowledge would be obliterated from the face of the earth, the world’s most renowned sages gathered in Fez, Morocco to create pictorial images to conceal the ancient wisdom teachings from those who sought to permanently erase them.  They knew this most important information needed for mankind’s evolution would be needed at a time when humanity was capable of comprehending its secrets.

These Kabalists of Hermetic tradition created what we have come to know as the Keys which consist of seventy-eight cards dived into two parts: The Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana.

The Major Arcana consists of twenty-two cards or Keys and represents Cosmic Forces while the Minor Arcana represents Planetary Forces.  Within these twenty-two cards are the combinations of cards representing the twelve signs of the zodiac, the seven primary planets, the three outer planets, the four elements of Air, Earth, Fire and Water, the Archangels who control each element and the quadrant they represent and control, etc….

Each Key or card represents volumes of information.  Thanks to the work of the Piscean Age we just left, mankind now has the capacity to comprehend this treasured information…

With the benefit of the capacity built in the last age, the Age of Aquarius called the Age of the “Unveiling, “Revealing”, Uncovering” affords us the ability to de-code this arcane knowledge…

The Key the Ancients left us to represent this age is Key 17 called “The Star”.

The Key displays in the foreground the image of a Woman named Isis Urania who is nude…

 She is unrobed and revealed, and is the symbol of “Truth Unveiled”…

To put this image in context, She is the same woman represented by Key 2 called the High Priestess who is the Female Elder of the Temple, and in contrast to Key 17 is fully veiled and robed…

Key 2, the High Priestess holds a scroll of memory in her lap on which the seven Divine Laws are written and which holds the occult secrets of life…

She sits between two pillars, one black, one white..

She is the link and the reconciler between all that seem opposing…

Symbolisms are the media used by the soul to communicate to its messages to man…

He must have therefore developed the capacity to unravel the mysteries…

So one may ask: What was the High Priestess keeping secret and, what is Isis Urania now about to reveal?

The High Priestess is the first representation of Water and is the symbol of perfect memory and in particular, perfect recollection of the One Life who never forgets anything…

She is the Intelligence of Unity, Love and Wisdom…

She links and reconnects all that has operated under the illusion of separation…

She holds the secrets of the riddle of the Sphinx…

The riddle: Who is Man?

The visual images seen in Key 17, gives us a clue as to what we may expect to be unveiled in this Age…

A primary attribute of this Key is Meditation…

Occult meditation…

Defined as: “The unbroken flow of knowledge in a particular object”

The flow of water between the two vases alludes to that unbroken flow between the spirit of man and his personality…

And mankind shares in this great cosmic meditation that creates and sustains the universe…

We learn that all is natural…

What mankind calls spiritual is part of the natural reality of life…

He learns that nothing is supernatural…

And so the personality is the natural agency through which the divine energies express…

What is true then is that an advanced soul on the Path of Return does not in fact meditate but he is meditated…

When his personality vehicle is made ready, the unbroken divine knowledge flows through him…

The bodies and brains of humanity are what the One Life invented to allow the cosmic forces to find expression in a form that can be used for the work on the planet…

Nature brings everything that can be found in the Orb of the Sun to express through the personality vehicle of the human being making him a true expression of the solar forces and the embodiment of the solar system…

The personality of man becomes an integral part of the cosmic process…

Of Isis it is said: “No man removes the veil of Isis, but when she finds him worthy she will unveil herself to him”…

That unveiling occurs when mankind practices right meditation…

In Key 17 is a tree—The Tree of life — and in the background is the Ibis bird representative of Thoth or Hermes who is the messenger of the God to Man…

Prominently featured are eight stars, yet the Key is named “The Star”…

There and Seven and, then One…

The seven smaller stars are the seven interior centers called chakras, which forms the ladder with  seven rungs on each aspirant descends on his way down into the  world of sense experience through the five senses, and the same seven rung ladder on which he ascends in consciousness with right occult or esoteric training…

The Great White Lodge on Sirius works through the seven centers in the body and simultaneously through the seven planetary centers to accomplish its work on the human vehicle and the Earth as a planetary vehicle…

The eighth and biggest star is the Star, Sirius…

Sirius is called the Dog-Star or the star of Mercury…

What do we really know about Sirius?

NASA discovered back in 1953 that this star system does exist, but the Dogons in Mali, West Africa knew this a long, long time ago…

Their elders gave detailed accounts of their long standing relationship with Sirius A and B…

They explained Sirius as the overlords of this planet and guide its development…

The sages who met in Morocco centuries ago clearly knew this also and designed a Key 17 to reflect very prominently the impact that this Intelligence has had and will continue to have in the Age of Aquarius…

Other esoteric writings give us great insights into the role of Sirius in human evolution of which Masonry is the most significant…

The Great White Lodge on Sirius is the prototype of the Great White Lodge on Earth and modern Masonry is a distortion of that Lodge…

In this Lodge there is no separation base on gender, race, social standing and financial background…

Membership in this lodge is made so by spiritual regeneration…

When a true understanding of masonry is grasped, the restoration of the sacred and ancient mysteries will become a reality on the planet.

Though Masonry has been corrupt and inadequate it still contains within it the germ for future externalization…

The Great Sphinx of Giza which shows an animal with the face of a man and the body of a lion is the symbol for the Aquarian Age…

Leo is part of the Sphinx and the keynotes of this sign are individuality and true self-consciousness…

The lion is the king of the animal kingdom and man is the highest expressions of all the kingdoms of nature and Man alone is capable of bringing the animal nature under the will of the Higher Mind…

He is the link between the kingdoms above and the kingdoms below with the capacity to bring the divine intent to full expression in all the worlds…

Sirius is cosmically the ruler of the sign of Leo…

The sign of Leo, ruled by the Sun, also rules the spine and the heart…

The Age of Aquarius is one in which the individualism of the human entity is paramount…

Man’s relationship with his Higher Self is essential to his liberation…

The symbols of the face of Man, with the body of a Lion communicates that in this age where Sirius dominates, we will see mankind, develop a strong and open heart, a steeled spine and enter into a vertical relationship with his Higher Self, his true and only teacher, to establish him as the sovereign being he truly is…

Only then will he be capable of solving the riddle of the Sphinx, which is about the mystery of man…

Sirius has three major influences which are focused in the Star Regulus, considered the Heart of the Lion, to awaken the Head, the Heart and the Base of the Spine.  The changes impacted by Regulus in the body are under the influences of:

The Central Spiritual Sun— The Head

The Heart of the Sun— The Heart

The Physical Sun— The Base of the Spine, resulting in:

  • The awakening of the personality to Soul control
  • The awakening of the seventh or sacral center at the base of the spine where the Kundalini fire sits as a coiled up serpent.  With the soul working through the first or head center to fuse the higher forces with the lower forces, a new man is born.

Under the influence of Sirius two great mysteries will be solved in this Age:

  1. The Mystery of the Sphinx which is one of the higher and the lower mind and their relation of each to the other.  The individual through his evolution now comes to a conscious realization of a recognized duality; this realization is what is described as the final judgment and it is that realization that will bring about a fusion of the higher and lower minds and an end to the antagonistic dualism experienced for too long. The scales will finally be turned in favor of Isis-Urania, The Regent Mother of the World, Third Person of the Godhead, Holy Spirit and Reconciler she has kept hidden for eons. The Mystery of the Sphinx would have been solved, when the whole man emerges as God-man and the relationship of spirit and matter is fully understood…
  2.  The Mystery of the Lion and the Unicorn which deals with the mystic rising of humanity of which Masonry holds the key and is related to the consciousness of the initiate whose one-pointedness finally defeats the King of Beasts, the Lion, to finally bring his animal nature under the dominion of his Higher Mind.   Then will the mythical story of the king of beasts who become blinded and killed by the piercing of his eye and heart by the long horn of the unicorn be revealed

A welling up of magnetic forces on Sirius is producing effects on our solar system and particularly on the Earth causing a shift in its polarity due to great pull on the Cosmic Saturn Center.  It is this pull that is responsible for the earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions the earth is experiencing.  Together with the passing of the Sun out of the sign of Pisces into the sign of Aquarius and the end of the soul cycle of over 25,000 years, all this is bringing about great confusion and fear.  However, not to worry, all is in good stead and in divine order…

Two-thirds of humanity is in one of the stages of unfolding the Christ Consciousness. For the first time in Earth’s history, this great number is poised to bring about the end of duality and the beginning of a New World in which Oneness, Brotherhood are the hallmarks…

The Path to Jerusalem through the Desert…

The Path to Jerusalem through the Desert…

The Fama Fraternatis, a German Manifesto written in 1610 in Europe, tells the story of a German lad of five years of age on his journey to Spiritual Jerusalem, a city known as the Abode of Peace where separation ends…

This lad is symbolic of mankind who embarked on a journey a long, long time ago…

A spiritual journey, from the East, symbolic of enlightenment, to the West in search of knowledge through experience, to finally return to the East, transformed…

The traveler is five years old…

His age is representative of the Fifth Life Wave and the five senses through which mankind gains knowledge and makes meaning of this life experiences, on the plane of matter

Many see the East and the Eastern philosophies as “spiritual’ while the Western philosophies as not spiritual.  This is a gross error in thinking!

There can be no East without West; no Mountain without Valley, no Masculine without Feminine and each has equal value in the curriculum of Earth and man’s illumination.

Keep in mind that the stops on this lad’s journey are less about geography and more about symbolisms…

The Fama describes the young man as being in poverty though of German nobility, an allusion in part, to the fact that though he had all the trappings of material wealth, he recognized he was in spiritual poverty!

This decision to undertake this journey is akin to the Prodigal Son who left the palace with all the wealth and access and embarked on a similar journey into distant lands in which he squandered the portion of riches given to him by his Father; then after coming to himself returned home to greater glory than he had before….

This young lad, though an adult in number of years, is described as a lad because of the change that would occur in him…

Recognizing that though he thought he knew everything, he finally came to the realization that he knew nothing regarding the things that really mattered.  He was jolted into the awareness that unless he emptied himself all he thought he knew, so he could be taught by his soul the divine principles, he was doomed to a life of misery, and with no lasting peace…

This is a very important and sobering recognition for anyone who would embark on this journey, and very few are they who reverse their path and turn their faces toward Jerusalem…

This all important journey from West to East is one taken across the desert under the influence of the High Priestess described as the Chief Elder of the Temple, and the Keeper of the occult secrets of Life…

To the High Priestess is attributed the “Intelligence of Unity” and it is She who, associated with Memory, connects man-to-man and nation-to-nation and is guides humanity Home….

She is symbolized by the Camel who is described as the “Ship of the Dessert” which transports both goods and humans to connect with their brothers and sisters across vast areas of the desert to centers of civilization, trade and learning…

In these places people not only traded but shared ideas and exchange stories making for a better understanding of different peoples in distant lands.

The High Priestess knows the absolute necessity of connecting with those with whom we have been estranged, providing the opportunity to remember aspects of our own nature.

She is portrayed as holding a scroll or book which contains the seven laws which provide the foundation on which all life is created and sustained.

She knows that contrary to the evidence the eyes provide, which reports that everything ones sees appear to be dis-connected from, and un-related to anything that does not appear similar, this is not truth…

But that All things are One and of the One…

When the inner  eye of the mind is opened, the mind of pure reason reveals the connectedness of all things in nature in all four kingdoms, and this is the purpose for the traveller’s journey…

Before beginning the journey the young lad was put in a cloister by reason of his poverty, a term associated with bondage and limitation and always precedes the work of liberation.

This conscious journey informs the mind of the role of the personality as a vehicle through which the divine idea and purpose for his life manifests; and must be re-conditioned in such a manner as to be make it capable of carrying out that purpose to full expression in that life-time…

What is being cloistered is his “free spirit” which, though free in it-self, assumes the burden of apparent limitation imposed by incarnation into a human personality….

Living and participating in the five-sensed, three-dimensional world of separation and illusion, though evil has its purpose of informing the mind; the danger is continuing to live in that world of illusion…

While in the cloister our young lad is required to become proficient in the Greek and Latin tongues, references to Philosophy and Science, respectively, and without which he would not be able to receive the higher education which leads to the development of the mind.

When the young lad of five emerged from the cloister he was fifteen years old and the superconscious Will of the Father now stirs within him and strengthens his desire and a longing for higher things…

With this preparation in the cloister, he is even more intent on making his way back to the Holy Land

By being in the cloister, he has now left the world of five-sense reality which gives the individual the perception that the many-ness of all the human personalities is separate from his true Self, and his fellow-men…

As long as this illusion of separation existed, the lad is in poverty

He has attained a certain measure of wisdom, and the Scorpio energies are now stirred within this adolescent who is representative of the Spiritual Man at the beginning of his transformation

With the reversal of the sexual energies in his body he has firmly embarked on the Path of Return…

His higher education involved the study of occult philosophy and science and were taught to him in the language of “Arabic”, the language of Initiation.

While in the cloister he learned the value Pythagoras placed on education and was made aware that if one would seek his instruction, he demanded the study of mathematics, music and astronomy as prerequisites.

In Cyprus he died…

This death was, of course, spiritual death or transmutation…

Cyprus the most eastern island on the Mediterranean Sea is known to be the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, the Syrian goddess Ishtar and Venus…

Here he learns the secrets of both the Heart, the Sun center in the body as the radiating intelligence, and of the Venus or Voice Center in the Throat…

By the time he reaches Damascus he is sixteen and the physical transformations of puberty are completed…

Here he encounters the friendliness of the Turks who prepares him for the cleansing of his physical body which produces a change in the chemistry of the blood and of certain areas of the brain, in preparation for initiation…

The perfection of the body involves the physical work of initiation and is based on occult mathematics and the geometrical proportions that govern the manifestation of all forms in nature…

The control of the forces, which includes the chemistry in the body, is the work of occult medicine and is responsible for the awakenings in the body

This same stage of development is now taking place by the largest number in the history of humanity

Without the cleansing of his thought, act, word and deed, his journey might indeed end in Damascus…

In Damascus he encounters the Wise Men of Arabia who helps in the development of his inner hearing and inner sight.

This intense work in Damascus lasted three years…

He is now nineteen years old and a child-like spirit characterizes him…

A state in which the masculine and feminine forces within him are now in perfect balance and he is clear about his relationship with the Source…

He has turned his back on the limitations of the five-sense reality and embodies a regenerated personality vehicle through which the radiant energy of the Sun expresses permanently…

The journey from Damascus to Egypt was by way of the Arabian Gulf…

With his spiritual maturity and wisdom, at the magical age of twenty, it is now time to go down into Egypt to have an experience in the subconscious realms; to encounter the allures of the underworld and to be tempted and tested with what is described as the mysterious powers

Pythagoras, Jesus, Joseph and all those who have reached Jerusalem in the past have made a required stop in Egypt…

A stop everyone on the path of enlightenment must make and a pre-requisite to reaching the Holy Land…

The subconscious powers must come to the surface and to full consciousness.  One is warned not to tarry long in Egypt and to become snarled by the splendors of the lower astral plane.  With the wisdom gained he did not either so his stay in Egypt was brief…

Having left Egypt, he sailed west across the entire Mediterranean Sea to Fez, Morocco, considered in the fourteenth century as the intellectual center of the world and corresponds to the alchemical powers associated with Hermes or Thoth

It is said that those in Fez excelled in the Hermetic Sciences of medicine, mathematics and music…

In Fez our traveler learnt that though the study of Biology, Mathematics, Astronomy, Chemistry, Physics and all of other sciences are great but that knowledge of facts is not wisdom…

And that misinterpretation of facts, leave humanity sick both physically and spiritually…

Occult science requires that scientists read from the Book of Nature and first understand her Laws in order to make correct translations…

Many scientists confess they grope in darkness because they have not studied the Book of Nature to understand her secrets…

After two years in Fez and at the age of twenty-two, the number of the circumference of a circle, and the completion of a cycle of manifestation, the full powers of his Higher Self is ready to be manifested through his regenerated personality vehicle; and the distinguishing marks of this renewed individual are compassion and tenderness …

At this magical age of twenty-two he can now be called a “Citizen of Heaven.”  He has completed the twenty-two paths of wisdom and he draws no attention to himself.  He has also learnt that those with whom he desires to share the knowledge he now possesses must have the capacity to receive it.

Having completed the perfect habitation which is own perfected temple, the body of an adept, this brings him into the company of the Master Builders with Hiram Abiff and with Jesus the Carpenter…

In this new “house” of his, he spends five years in reflection and rumination.   In this state he contemplates with great compassion and sympathy the errors of the unenlightened and the consequences of those errors.  He is representative of the many men and women who are like God, and have a deep love for the world and work without ceasing for the regeneration of the human race.

At twenty-seven, which is the third cubical number, he, with this group of Master Builders builds a new and fitting habitation, not for themselves this time but a meeting place for the emerging group of regenerated humanity growing exponentially at this time and who are hidden from the wicked

The characteristics that mark these Builders are they have great imagination and have a clear understanding of the problems of humanity.  They are gifted in expression, and are true initiates who walk with “god” like Enoch did; they are silent in the face of criticism; silent before enemies of the work and those who are unprepared; silent when the silly ignorance of others tempts him to speak when to speak would do no good…

They know the wisdom of being silent while others speak; and to speak when others keep silent…

The number of the original Builders is Eight, the second cubical number…

The number of the Cube is a reference to the cubical Holy of Holies and the cubical New Jerusalem…

There is nothing admiral about belonging to a group of thinkers who are no more than a mutual admiration society…

The work of Him who is imbued with the Life-Giving Spirit of Truth has never been for their liberation as an Initiate, but to be a center of illumination to the world as a whole, and to those who come within his sphere of influence

However their light can only be received by those who are ready, and put themselves in a position to receive it…

This knowledge remains hidden out of compassion for those whose minds are unprepared to grasp the real meanings of the inner secrets of life…

The Three Abrahamic Religions…

The Three Abrahamic Religions…

Judaism, Islam and Christianity described as the three Abrahamic religions are symbolic of the three strains of humanity and of the three candidates in the Masonic Legend who approach the Gates of Initiation with their bags of gold to offer as their gifts to the Lord in exchange for eternal peace.  However, they were told that gold was not an acceptable offering for the gift of eternal peace and that in order to enter through the portals of Initiation they would have to leave their gold behind.  This occurrence took place in the very, very ancient past of which humanity has little or no memory.

It is now time to remember…

They were so angry to be told their gold was not an acceptable offering and that they could not enter with their bags of gold, they held on to their treasures, turned their faces toward Earth, and began the long journey into Matter where they would know no Peace. They embarked on a journey into Matter to have an intimate experience with gold or matter and to have that gold offer up to them its secrets and its illusions…

Every member of the human family with all its branches and off-shoots took part in that decision as a representative member of one of the three strains of Humanity.  That choice and the consequences of that choice is what provides the basis for the journey everyone now walks.

The terms Abraham, Israel, Jews do not refer to people living in a certain geographic area on the planet.  They are symbolic terms referring to ALL humanity and so it is important to understand that the twelve tribes of Israel are in fact a direct reference to the twelve signs of the zodiac and the role each sign plays in the building of the New Jerusalem, and a new and regenerated species of humanity.

Keep in mind also that the term Jerusalem symbolically means: “The Abode of Peace”   This Jerusalem is Pisces.  This is the place of death and likewise the city of peace.

It is important to realize also that the third temple which many expect to be built in Jerusalem and is the cause and focus of so much warfare and turmoil is not a physical temple but is in fact a reference to the body of the Master Mason, a true representation of the spiritual temple each individual is expected to build…’ “The temple not made with hands Eternal in the Heavens” ((Mark 14:58; 2 Corinthians 5:1) KJV

The Age of Pisces was given to growing consciousness in the cells so that the physical, emotional and mental bodies would be capable of housing the divine intent and in time through development, unveil the secrets held for centuries and written in the texts of all major ancient world religions.

The Divine Plan for humanity is that on the level of the soul, he would emerge out of this illusion to matter and its bondage of ignorance and to learn the true relationship of Spirit to Matter.  To know that Spirit is the highest form of Matter, and Matter is the lowest form of Spirit, and therefore Matter can never dominate Spirit and that when a correct relationship is established in the heart and the mind of the individual, peace becomes the end product.

That is where reversal becomes essential to liberation…

It is imperative that mankind remembers the decisions he made, understands them and eventually makes a different choice…

The Ancients have always insisted that it is really Memory that will take us Home…

The Piscean Age saw an enormous accumulation of matter, of gold and the creation of a large number of human bodies or vehicles in which consciousness could be developed and grow.  This resulted in the largest explosion of consciousness on the planet, ever.  Unfortunately, however, there are many of all three Abrahamic religions who are having a difficult time making the transition into the Uranus directed Aquarian consciousness of which the following are characteristics:

  • Brotherhood
  • Synthesis
  • The rise of the Feminine Principle
  • True Masonry
  • Service

It is my hope that we acquaint ourselves with true Masonry; this beautiful and divine body of knowledge given to humanity at the beginning of man’s sojourn into this human experience as a guide to find our way back home but has been hijacked by those who would “grab and hold.”

The principles of Masonry will be the guiding principles for humanity in the 21st century and Uranus who is the revealer of the arcane mysteries will beautifully and powerfully unfold this knowledge to the minds and hearts of those who have built the capacity to comprehend it.

The Inner Order hidden from human sight in the Piscean Age will become externalized in the Aquarian dispensation through those individuals who now with different bodies are able to make contact with the Invisible Order.

The Old and outworn Piscean ideas which must be transmuted are in the final stages of release:  They are:

  • Paternalism
  • Devotion
  • Idealism to the point of fanaticism
  • Patriotism

Many of our members of this age are desperately trying to hold on to these traditions and beliefs of the past, refusing to give way to a more expansive and inclusive understanding of reality. This struggle to preserve what is no longer useful is causing the pain and struggle we are now witnessing globally.

The foundation of their thinking is separation…

They built a tower in which they have lived in isolation to the rest of humanity, all the while clutching the gold by which they define themselves…

And what is significant is that the tower they constructed is the symbol for Mars, the god of war, separation, division, and destruction, conflict with no concept or intention for unity…

From that tower, they are cut off from humanity, and with no contact, they have no idea what are the facts on the ground …

A case in point is what is happening in the middle-east where all these rulers who have lived in Towers of isolation are falling out of those towers, head first to a hard surface literally and figurative…

And wherever similar mind-sets and situations exist, the outcomes will always be the same.

They are the elite who are convinced they are right and they are in direct contact with God who direct and sanction their inhumane and isolationist thinking and activities…

These are the people who have been so-called in charge and running the show for eons…

They are the remnant of the Piscean Age who refuses to accept that they are on the wrong side of the Divine Plan for Humanity, an Age which over the last 2000 years has had the following impact on bringing humanity to the door of Initiation:

  • Bring about the demand for world adjustment
  • Developed the international spirit which has led to the formation of groups in every department of human living thus laying the foundation for the synthesis, an Aquarian characteristic we are now witnessing

On the contrary, these lesser qualities can be found in the three groups of humanity and we can see them play out very strikingly among the three very religious groups who have difficulty transitioning in to the Aquarian Age.

They have the greatest difficulty with these dualities which are also three keynotes of Pisces:

  • Bondage or Captivity
  • Renunciation or Detachment
  • Sacrifice and Death

Only when servitude has been transformed into service will mankind have released himself from the imprisonment of form…

The influence of the planet Uranus is pulling mankind away from his over-indulgence with matter.

The conflict will be between those who grab and hold for themselves and those who let go to grasp the higher treasures.  In this new age we will see all economic, political, racial and physical barriers come down.

 True respect for each other and all life will be realized.   Then, will the Aquarian Age motto of Brotherhood can be lived out in the “Age of the Brotherhood of Man”

The Black Lodge…

The Black Lodge…

I form the Light and create Darkness. I make Peace and create Evil.

I the Lord do all these things. Isaiah 45: 5, 6, 7(KJV)

Just about everyone is happy to talk about the Light but no one wants to talk about Darkness.  However, without an understanding of Darkness one cannot walk in Light and without an understanding Evil, how can one know Good…

To become a conscious entity on planet Earth and a true citizen of the Aquarian Age requires courage and a deep unquenchable desire to know one’s self.

And this knowledge of the self can only be revealed not taught to the individual by his own Inner Teacher who is the only true teacher and the revealer of the Mysteries of Life…

How can one emerge from Darkness into Light, from Ignorance to Knowledge without an understanding of either…

Without this knowledge mankind will indeed perish…

The Forces of Darkness or the so-called Black Lodge of Adepts operate from the lower astral plane and have had its establishment on the Earth for eons and is far more firmly established here since the foundation for its power is separation and materialism, division and greed

Gladly, their power is rapidly waning due to the evolution of human consciousness…

The so-called Great White Lodge which consist of the Hierarchy of Masters have sought to bend human thought away from separation and materialism toward unity and oneness which has been difficult but is finally taking hold in a big way

This is made possible through the development of the human vehicle— the physical, emotional and mental bodies— giving man the capacity to hold the infusions of light emitted by the Masters of Wisdom into the minds of Man

Through humanity’s ability to decipher and to see the relationships and associations between one thing and another he is now able to make better choices and do so more consciously

Every adept who has passed through the Gate of Initiation knows the singular prize to be won at the end of his journey is: Self Knowledge

To accomplish this, one must have developed the capacity to first cognitively understand the concept of duality and how it manifests in form…

He must come to know how and why the cleavage of the mind set up a kingdom on Earth in which oneness gave way to a perception that appearances are reality and anything that is different is not a part of oneness and should be destroyed…

This lack of knowledge is responsible for the war, poverty, and unimaginable inhumanity the world has seen…

Religion has constructed a paradigm that splits the ONE into a cast of two characters—one they call God who is kind, friendly and benevolent and the other Satan/Saturn who is harsh, cruel and unforgiving

In this scenario there are two kingdoms—One ruled by GOD and the other kingdom ruled by the DEVIL

Alas!  The wise discovers they are indeed two aspects one reality…

The members of the Black Lodge have been called by many names…

Most notably the Illuminati…

What is not understood by most is that everyone has been a member of this Black Lodge and sometime in his sojourn…

Everyone became a member by choosing to come to planet Earth and to be a part of duality and the only way to relinquish membership in this lodge is through knowledge and compassion

That knowledge must include the understanding of the collective agreement everyone made before coming to this planet— to play out the illusion of separation and duality…

In this year 2011 that veil of ignorance and illusion is parting significantly to reveal the truth regarding all the pairs of opposites

The word Maya means illusion and it is this illusion that must end…

The only way it ends is through integration…

This is where the river meets the ocean; judgment occurs by a comprehensive understanding of the laws of life then is mankind resurrected from the watery tomb of the subconscious to a conscious knowledge of his choice and his destiny, and onto the Path of Liberation by the merge of opposites…

Most have heard the story of Solomon’s Temple.  Its significance is essential to anyone who seeks transformation, because the temple is the symbol of that structure that everyone is here to construct consciously

The temple is that vehicle needed to house the divine essence

For those who remember story of the building of Solomon’s Temple, there were specific instructions regarding measurements and materials given for its constructing

So that this temple would have the vibrational frequency needed for a permanent in-dwelling of spirit, the building of that temple/vehicle could not be left up to the limited understanding or whims of the uninitiated mind.  The Master Builder was appointed to oversee its construction

What is little known is that everyone is required to build his temple to those same specifications thus making everyone a builder…

This temple is described in ancient text as: ‘one not made with hands, eternal in the heavens’…one built on divine laws…

Solomon was designated to build the symbolic temple in Jerusalem because he had qualified himself, as did the Prodigal Son, by the experiences gained by immersing themselves in the extremes of life and extracting the wisdom that comes from understanding both extremes

Like Solomon and the Prodigal Son everyone eventually comes to the same conclusion that we are bound up inextricably together in a destiny that cannot be won with blame but by a mature examination of those aspects of Self and of Life he is often too afraid to examine…

Mankind has lost memory of his past and is in denial of his present, which prevents him from reconciling the extremes of his experiences lived here and elsewhere…

Those who have no memory are those who most lack compassion…

Because the Wise has prefect memory they have no judgment of humanity— only compassion…

They seek only to lift up humanity…

The Wise remembers he was his brother at every point on the journey toward self-knowledge and before reaching the heights of spiritual attainment…

On one hand, the New Age movement has lulled people into a false sense of what is required to achieve true and sustainable peace, harmony and oneness; and on the other hand religion has used fear to keep its flock in control, with neither group having any true understanding of how he, his world and his government are constituted and why and how liberation is achieved…

The Arcane mysteries teach that the first stage of enlightenment is ‘sight”— the ability to see or to penetrate into things with the focus and clarity of a regenerated mind

There is an ancient fact: ‘One cannot change what one cannot see or understand…’

There is much talk about the 2012 event…

I remarked to someone lately that there is the perception that 2012 will come, everyone will graduate because the biochemistry and the quantum physics will provide for that graduation and  everyone will be rendered all-knowing without any cognitive understanding of what they have been a part of for eons, and why

If that is true there would have been no need for the process of our living on this physical plane with all the institutions put in place to ensure that the physical, emotional and mental bodies grow and mature in preparation for this event.  To ensure that come graduation day the individual is qualified for that graduation through the process of his step by step evolution, rendering him a conscious individual who has earned that graduation and qualified to pass through the Gate of Initiation/Graduation

What in fact is the 11:11 Gateway?

It is none other than the symbolic portal of Solomon’s Temple which everyone must enter through…

One Black and one White…

Boaz and Joachim…

The Light and the Dark…

The Black Lodge and the White Lodge…

It must be understood that the reward for our sojourn here and our entitlement to graduation is not money but wisdom…

If we remember correctly, Solomon was described as the wisest man that ever lived.

Solomon’s temple is used as the reference to the achievement of the full development of the human vehicle made ready to fully house divine knowledge…

Solomon gained his wisdom by reconciling the pairs of opposites…

This is the only way wisdom can be achieved…

Because Solomon lived a life totally immersed in both extremes of earthly experiences, he qualified himself to speak with authority on all subjects…

He is not a propagator of conspiracy theories…

He became a KNOWER…

Not because of anything he was told by anyone else but because he, through his own experiences and his ability to understand, reason and make meaning of relationships and associations was able to see with the single eye of the inner mind that all apparent differences are parts of one whole…

That there is in fact no separation

This ability must be achieved by everyone who yearns to be liberated

The inability to have compassion for our fellowman stems from the lack of capacity to see ourselves in them…

The wise man is always symbolized as wearing a grey robe.  He symbolizes one who has reconciled the pairs of opposites…

He has integrated light and dark; so-called good and the so-called evil…

He is the living representation of the Black Pillar and the White Pillars of Solomon’s Temple…

He is the Master of the Lodge because he has mastered the laws of the Black Lodge and the White Lodge and now has dominion over all things

He has mastered the illusion of separation…

He is now qualified to legitimately stand as a representative of humanity…

Jesus emerged on the stage of Life as the Master Builder and Wayshower and demonstrated to humanity how the Temple is Built and how the Path of Return must be walked…

He is the representative to man as one who has healed the cleavage in the mind, entered through the gates of Oneness, and achieved the title of 33rd degree…

Humanity chose to come to this water planet called Earth to experience the illusion of separation and to be able to report back to himself what that feels like by being able to make correct meaning and interpretation of his emotional life experiences in a physical world according to divine principles…

He came here to forget and then to remember the divine idea that brought him into incarnation, and the inner secrets that idea holds for his liberation from matter…

May Light Be Extended Upon You…

The Ancient Destiny of America, Egypt, Akhanaton and the Floating Capstone…

The Floating Capstone…

Two hundred and thirty-four years ago the United States of America was born as the  land described by those who laid down the foundation  for this country as: “A light to the world”!   This country is the prototype of the vision held in the mind of the Divine not only for the people of the United States of America but for the whole world.

As far back as two thousand years B.C., the mystical orders of Egypt were aware of the existence of the great Western Continent called America, and decided that it should be the site of the philosophic empire, a land where representatives of humanity would gather to implement their desires for a new vision of what the world could be.

The Secret Orders of Europe provided the foundation for the establishment of this great country.  Everyone who came to these shores is of every kindred, tongue and nation.  Those who were evolved and those not so much!  What became established here was an admixture of the full array of humankind with corresponding levels on consciousness.  What better place than this for all the cultures, races and philosophic ideas to be given the opportunity to make sense or meaning of their experiences than in America where everyone would have the privilege to express themselves without fear of persecution, tyranny and death.  This provided the perfect arena or incubator for the development of all ideas no matter how contradictory!  In the establishment of this democratic republic, a new race was born—the American Race—defined as:  a race of humanity determined and set apart by a conviction that human beings are created free and equal and are entitled to opportunities for perfecting their life, their freedom and the pursuit of their happiness which was not determined based on one’s blood or the size of one’s cranium.

It must not be forgotten though that behind all the occurrences in this history of the country there was a Divine Idea for America!  If anyone doubts that our country was founded on the principles of Masonry, one need only look at our One Dollar Bill and the reverse of the ‘Great Seal’ to know that the foundation of our country is anchored in the ancient philosophy of Egypt who had the first democratic leader the world had ever known, Akhanaton!  Akhanaton was born of the “second birth”, defined by the ancients as:  one who achieved the status of “wise man” and was of a separate race.  This race emerged as enlightened intelligent beings produced through the intentful development of the mind.  Akhanaton, the very young Priest, King and Pharaoh of ancient Egypt, is described as the first man in recorded history to exemplify social consciousness in the administration of a great nation.  He was known as the first pacifist, the first realist, the first monotheist, the first democrat, the first humanitarian and the first internationalist.

It is this ideal of a nation, under the leadership of Akhanaton of ancient Egypt, that those who founded the United States of America sought to emulate  on the North American continent.  It is safe to say that this information    informs the appearance of the ‘floating capstone’ or ‘fire triangle’ that the Egyptians call “The Light” that we see twice on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States of America as the unfinished pyramid.   A radiant triangle enclosing the “All-seeing Eye” is another piece of evidence that the structure of government intended by the founders of the American Republic, presented itself to their minds, as a piece of Egyptian Masonry and as the vision and democratic philosophy of the first conscious leader, Akhanaton.

The floating capstone is symbolic of the group of souls now on our planet who have emerged as wise-men and members of the Fifth Kingdom and who are poised to assist in the spiraling of consciousness upward …these are the Adepts and Initiates who will complete the “Unfinished Pyramid” and anchor the floating capstone to the unfinished pyramid to complete the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.  This will mark the beginning of the Age of Peace that the Divine Mother promised. And, the beginning of the 21st century will see the New Order of the Ages become a reality here.  These souls will establish a New World Order.  They themselves are an order of immortals composed of new beings whose nucleus is now on the planet and constitute a new species of humanity.  For this group of enlightened souls, the pair of opposites — Peace and Strife — has been reconciled and these souls will usher in the new era of Peace on our planet.

The Piscean Age was characterized by: devotion, idealism to the point of fanaticism, patriotism and paternalism and these are now fading away. We have now left the Age of Pisces, however many are still desperately trying to hold on to these traditions and beliefs of the past, refusing to give way to a more expansive and inclusive understanding of reality. This struggle to preserve what is no longer useful is causing the pain we are now witnessing globally with so many.  The Mother will help to guide this country and our planet into the age of reason.

As America, the land that the ancients refer to as the “New Atlantis” rises, it is Isis, the symbol for the Age of Aquarius and keeper of the ancient secrets, under the direction of the Dog-Star Sirius, who will shepherd this country through the great transformation that will take place in our world and, the United States of America is central to this occurrence.

It has not escaped me that The Grand Cross formation which astrologers say will occur on 7/7/2010 is taking place around the birthday of this nation.  Whatever is to happen to the world must first happen in America.  It is my belief that this event will mark a turning point in the history of America – and our world – and that on the mental plane there will be a significant shift away from separation and toward Oneness and Unity.  The Divine Feminine, who links nation to nation and Man to Man promises to anchor the divine blueprint for a new world based on justice and fair play at this time. The Masonic promise and premise on which America was established will become a reality here…and I do not mean Masonry as it has been hijacked and defined by the few, but Masonry as it was given in its original form and intent – – a blueprint for the true Brotherhood of Man, and a spiritual philosophy that will end war and poverty as we know them.

America has an Aquarian soul and so it is now fitting that the soul-purpose for which this country was created will now achieve expression on the planet.
