Reconciling the Pairs of Opposites


Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truth; all paradoxes may be reconciled, says the Kabylion.

Enlightenment is the reconciliation of the pairs of opposites without which one stays in separation and illusion.

One cannot examine the whole issue of the pairs of opposites without understanding the role of the planet Mars as a major player. Mars is the planet of destruction; destroying what is outworn and erroneous and no longer needed in one’s life.  The Martian forces in the body are not malefic but instead serve to vitalize the bloodstream, purify and stimulate all aspects and organs of the body.  This force arouses the whole lower nature in man and brings about the last battle between the personality and the soul as the lower man dies and is reborn on a higher turn of the spiral.

There are three places in the zodiac where Mars features prominently to transform humanity and the planet:

  • Aries
  • Scorpio
  • Capricorn

Mars is the exoteric ruler of Aries and in the sign of Aries, Mars provides three urges.  The first is to begin manifestation on the plane of Matter, Earth.  This urge symbolizes the urge of mankind to come into form and to begin his long journey through the many stages of development.  Secondly, it provides the urge to create both individually and universally because mankind had the need to create something of his own and so the plane of matter offered the most ideal environment in which to do so.  Thirdly is Aries’ urge for resurrection.  It is this impulse, which allows humanity to first sense the need for the release from form.  He feels the weight of matter as being too much to bear and this feeling causes him to want to roll away the heavy “stone” from the entrance to the sepulcher of his soul, so that he might find liberation. Therefore, he made the choice to toward re-orientation and the Path of Return.

When mankind made the choice to incarnate in order to have a physical, emotional and mental experience in form, a cleavage occurred in his mind that set up an illusion of separation.  The consequences of this cleavage is the perception of duality which is a mental construct which can only be reversed by a cognitive grasp of the pairs of opposites and their relationship to each other.

The decision was an esoteric one that lays out in symbolic form the journey of man into matter begun under the sign of Aries. He made the “decision” to embark on an adventure of choice to experience more than he knew he could by remaining “home” which for him was a place of safety and ignorance.  He decided instead to travel into distant lands which took him to strange and unfamiliar places where he was forced out of his comfort zone to learn things about himself he was incapable of learning any other way.

Mars is the esoteric ruler of Scorpio in which the entity is re-oriented to the soul and onto the Path of Return. This re-orientation is the first of two major crises in this sign. This intelligent man of the world through reason and memory of his ancient beginnings, comes to realize, like the Prodigal Son, he had eaten enough of the husks of life and having exhausted the resources of worldly desires and ambition, says to himself:  “I will arise and go home.”  At this point the individual experiences a definite re-orientation to his Spirit and passes through the most subtle tests to undergo certain undefinable and spiritual recognitions.  These recognitions are from the angle of memory and of the consequences of that memory.  This memory is recalled from that of the race of man and of his established and individual subconscious reservoirs of thought and desires which are both inherent and inherited.

The sum total of all his false prides, instinctual tendencies, wrong mental attitudes, fear, cruelty, money, selfishly cornered, hate, sex, physical comfort selfishly appropriated  referred to collectively as the “Dweller on the Threshold” are what he must face.  They represent the unconquered and un-subdued residue he must overcome in order that initiation can take place.  The ancient deficits are numerous and extremely potent and when these personality residues are well established in the individual he becomes “The Dweller” wanting to keep the personality in separation.  The struggles and the tests come as the aspirant is engrossed in the light and glory of his own soul referred to as “The Angel of the Presence”.  These tests and trials are self-initiated and put him in a positive conditioning space where all defects of personality rise to the surface.  In Scorpio, the sign of Triumph, the individual emerges as a result of the struggle and victory as a whole divine man, though not yet perfected, emerges. When “The Dweller on the Threshold” stands face to face with the Angel of the Presence, something occurs.  The light of the personal self fades and wanes in the blaze of glory which emanates from the Angel of the Presence. The greater glory obliterates the lesser.  This can only occur when the personality recognizes itself as the Dweller and enters into a conscious relationship with “The Angel” as someone who desires nothing else but liberation from the bondage of ignorance.

He comes face to face in Scorpio with the desires of its polar opposite, Taurus and his desires are transmuted into aspiration.  The individual now turns his direction from matter to the attention of the Soul.

Scorpio rules death and inheritance. The Scorpio region of the body is also the sexual region.  The sexual force in the body when re-oriented and re-directed is essential in the achievement of spiritual liberation and the reconciliation of the pairs of opposites.  This same force aids in the opening up of the centers in the brain which is responsible for the individual to achieve the inner “sight” of the mind enabling him/her to bring together the pairs of opposites and to be able to see the relationship and association between them. He is now able to see for the first time and comes to the conclusion that all pairs of opposites as only two aspects of one thing and are not in fact antagonistic to each other.

The blood and the bloodstream are the agencies through which the elements of consciousness are transported throughout the body to not only vitalize but to transform the aspirant.

Death to separation occurs and his entrance into a more expanded life begins.  If there was no death, the process of evolution could not occur.

After the blood and death themes play themselves out; the dire testing; trials; the individual conflict; the consciousness of the misery of existence all brought about by the combined influences of  Scorpio, the individual is now re-oriented toward the second-birth.

The planet Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn which is one of the most important signs of the zodiac. The sign of Capricorn is that of the second-birth.

The individual who was re-oriented under the influence of Scorpio and with a one-pointed focused direction facilitated by the energies of Sagittarius, he begins his steep ascent to the mountain-top of spiritual attainment symbolized by the mountain-goat of Capricorn.

Capricorn is the birthplace of the Christ.  This is where mankind emerges from the fourth kingdom of Homo Sapiens into the fifth kingdom of Homo Spiritualis or as God-Man.  Capricorn opens the door into the Hierarchy of Beings.

Capricorn is an earth sign and is where we find the densest point of concrete materialization of which the human soul is capable.  In this regard, Capricorn holds within it the seeds of death and finality.   When the crystallization of matter has reached a certain degree of density and hardness it is easily shattered and destroyed.  In this way man who is born out of the dust of the earth and is fundamentally materialistic, coupled with the blows of fate, brings about his own destruction.

Capricorn being ever the sign of finality, conclusions and the mountain top therefore marks the point at which no further ascent can be achieved in a particular life cycle. The individual comes to realize that progress is impossible under the current conditions of material density. This necessitates his decent into the valley of pain, despair and death before he begins anew to scale the heights and conquer them; the grandeur will remain but this time matter will be beneath his feet and by extension, that of humanity’s.  The Capricorn individual is symbolic of humanity as a whole and it is the plan that as a consequence of the above, a new cycle of effort is initiated.  The Capricorn struggles, strains and fights with the forces of the underworld are representative of the Capricorn experience.

At one time in the distant past, Capricorn was the last sign of the zodiac. The last two signs of Aquarius and Pisces were added because when mankind was able to respond to their peculiar influences.  Prior to this, the personality vehicles of contact and mechanisms for response in humanity were not sufficiently developed.

Mankind is now responding the respective influences of the Aquarian World Server and the Pisces World Saviour.  There are now enough souls who have attained initiation to facilitate mankind’s liberation from ignorance.  With matter under his feet, and the reconciliation of the pairs of opposites:

  • Fertility and Sterility
  • Peace and Strife
  • Grace and Sin
  • Life and Death
  • Wealth and Poverty
  • Wisdom and Folly
  • Dominion and Slavery,

Large numbers of mankind have joined the hierarchy of souls who can now step forward to be vehicles of transmission of light and power to those coming up the ladder of spiritual attainment.

Humanity, governed by the sign of Cancer which is the polar opposite of Capricorn, is now in a state of turmoil prior to a great step forward taking place and is the expression of a sense of responsibility which marks the first flower and fruit in self-conscious unfoldment. This is responsible for the sweeping conflict in such a pronounced way.  We are at a great turning point.  I wish for you that you make the decision to enter upon the reverse path, consciously!

The Truth about Freemasonry

Everything is governed by some form of urgency toward satisfaction.

This is distinctive of mankind’s search at every stage of his development; whether it is the instinctual urge to self-preservation, which can be seen in his savage search for food or in the economic problems of the modern civilized man.  Or, in the urge to self-reproduction and the satisfaction of the appetite which works itself out in the complexity of the sex life of the human race; whether it is the urge to be popular, loved and esteemed; whether it is the urge for intellectual enjoyment and mental appropriation of truth; whether it is the deep-seated desire for eternal life and rest, which characterizes the Christians; or the aspiration for illumination, which is the demand of the Mystic; or it is the longing for identification with reality which is the wish of the occultist.

Humanity is governed and controlled in some form or another by these urges.  

Until an individual is securely on the Path of Return, he cannot grasp the absolute demand of his own soul for the release from the search for external, material, tangible satisfaction forged by desire.  It was desire that initiated the need to incarnate and to subsequently pursue the path of liberation and purification for a needed period, under the Law of Rebirth.

As the process toward purification progresses the demand on the personality by the soul becomes stronger and stronger.  And as the individual advances on the path toward Initiation, the control of his reactions that at first was unconscious, becomes more potent and is more consciously appreciated.

Masonry is the custodian of the Law…

It is the home of the Mysteries and the seat of Initiation…

It holds in its symbolism the ritual of the Divine, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work…

Masonry is a far more occult organization than might be first realized and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists.

The Masonic Fraternity is one of the three main channels through which preparation for the New Age will take place.  The others are the Educational Field, and the Church, which is a temporary transient place for the evolving soul.  All three have been in a state of static and unable to respond to the inner needs of humanity as they should. However, they are now beginning to respond to the task they have been assigned.

Consequently, the Masonic, the Esoteric and Church organisms will become the three centers of initiation.  In all three groups are to be found members whose centers in the brain are developing to be able to make contact with their higher selves.

 Self-knowledge is the goal…

And can only be achieved when one has a grasp of the Laws which form the basis of all true psychological understanding and apply them to his own unfoldment through rigid self-discipline.

Church members and Masonic Fraternities must become familiar with the inner significance of the various rites, rituals, ceremonies and colors and the importance of the work done upon the floor of the Lodge.  What is played out in symbolic form is essential to strengthening the link to their ancient pass and hastens the process of their evolution.

It is impossible to talk about Masonry without discussing the sign of Gemini.  It is the major symbol of duality—duality caused by the Life Power concentrating its limitless energy of any particular point in space and time.  This created a cleavage in the minds of man and the illusion of separateness, and, therefore, the symbol of the twin pillars Jachin and Boaz.  Gemini is the doorway into cleavage and the doorway through which unity must be achieved.

This Illusion or Maya of separation is what must end and is what the talk of 2012 is about.

Gemini, therefore, governs all the pairs of opposites in the zodiac and also preserves the magnetic interplay between them.  It also has a fluidic relationship between them in order to facilitate their transmutation into unity, since the two must finally again become one.

The Gemini force is what produces the changes needed for the evolution of Christ Consciousness at any particular time and space.

Masonry is a philosophy and not a religion.

The soul communicates in symbols…

The symbolism of Masonry describes the journey mankind embarked upon in the long and distant past; to enter the plane of matter to live out the concept of duality and separation.

This idea of separation is a mental construct, since in reality, it does not exist.  The mental cleavage has taken humanity into the physical, emotional and mental adventure, immersing him into the density of matter with all its allures.  His task is to make his way out of this Maya or Illusion of separation back into Oneness.

 All wars, conflicts, hunger, pains and maladies of life have their origin in separation.

The legend and symbolisms of Masonry is the story of the decent into illusion and the accent through the process of Initiation to liberation…

The following is a quote from The Lost Keys of Masonry by Manly P. Hall

“Masonry is a structure built upon experience.  Each stone is a sequential step in the unfolding of intelligence.  The shrines of Masonry are ornamented by the jewels of a thousand ages; its rituals ring with the words of enlightened seers and illuminated sages.  A hundred religions have brought their gifts of wisdom to its altar.  Arts and sciences unnumbered have contributed to its symbolism.  It is more than a faith; it is a path of certainty.  It is more than a belief; it is a fact.  Masonry is a university, teaching the liberal arts and sciences of the soul to all who will attend to its words.”

The Hiram Legend

Central to the Masonic story is the Grand Architect, Hiram Abiff, Grand Master of the Dionysiac Architects, a Widow’s son, and of no royal descent, who is said to have had no equal among the artisans of the earth.

When the wise man and beloved of God, Solomon, builder of the Everlasting House, and Grand Master of the Lodge in Jerusalem, ascended to the throne of his father David, he consecrated his life to the erection of a temple to God, and a palace for the kings of Israel.  Solomon thought of no one more qualified to build this temple but Hiram Abiff, the Master Builder.

The temple to be erected was no ordinary structure, but alluded to the temple not made with hands eternal in the heavens, according to a pre-ordained plan. The Hiram King of Tyre, who supplied the building materials and the skillful artificer, Hiram Abiff, and the large companies of craftsmen and laborers, assisted King Solomon.

This temple, of which all material edifices are but types and symbols, is the collective body of humanity itself.  A perfected Humanity was the great Temple, which in the counsels of the Most High, was intended to be erected in the mystical Holy City.  The three great Master-builders, Solomon, and the two Hirams, are a triad corresponding, in a manner, with the Holy Trinity of the Christian religion. Hiram Abiff, being the chief architect, is he “by whom all things were made, and in whom the whole building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy habitation in the Lord.”

The materials of this temple are the souls of men, as living stones are fellow craftsmen and collaborators with the divine plan and purpose. The legend of this Master-builder, Hiram Abiff, is a great allegory of Masonry, and its figurative story parallels that of Christ of the Holy Scriptures. As the story goes, CHiram (Hiram), in the building of the temple, divided his workmen into three groups:

  • Entered Apprentices
  • Fellow-craftsmen
  • Master Masons

To each division, CHiram gave certain passwords and signs by which their respective excellence could be easily determined.  Though each was classified according to his merit, some were dissatisfied, feeling that they were entitled to a more exalted position than they were capable of filling. So finally, three of the Fellow-craftsmen, more daring than the rest, decided to force CHiram to reveal the password of the Master’s degree. Knowing that CHiram always went into the unfinished Sanctum Sanctorum at high noon to pray, these three ruffians— Jubela, Jubelo, and Jubelum, lay in wait for him, one at each of the three main gates to the temple.

When the ruffians were refused the Master’s Word, they each participated in specific ways to his demise with a final blow by Jubelum between the eyes with a mallet CHiram fell dead.  These acts by all three ruffians allude to the need of all three strains of humanity to feel entitled to what they have not earned and not wanting to apply the self-discipline, focus and restraint required for true self-mastery.

The Mysteries are the architects of civilization, and Hiram personified their power and dignity as the Master Builder, as he fell victim to the three ruffians; the recurrent trio: — the State, the Church and the Mob/ or ignorance, superstition, and fear, respectively.

When the State governs, man is full of fear; when the Church governs, man is ruled by superstition; when the mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance. It is through the agencies of these three, that the Spirit of Good is murdered, a false kingdom controlled by wrong thinking, wrong feeling, and wrong action are established in its stead, and the material universe of evil appears ever victorious.

When Masonry is free of politics, its social agenda and its paralyzing state of inertia, it will meet the needs of those who are qualified through true Initiation to wield power.

There is a group on the physical plane who without any exoteric organizations, ceremonials, or outer forms are integrating silently, steadfastly and powerfully—a group of men and women who will supersede the past efforts of the Masters of Wisdom—they will supersede all churches, all groups, and all organizations and will eventually constitute that oligarchy of elect souls who govern and guide the world.

They are gathered from every nation and are chosen not by any Master but by the power of their response to the spiritual opportunity, tide and note and not pride or ambition.

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…

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!

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…
