I am not unaware that in this corrupt world we live in, everything has been corrupted – including the Templars, Freemasons, Rosicrucians and all our religions. However, I have chosen to focus on the original intent and purpose of these institutions, so that – if it is intended, we can recover that which was lost and re-connect with the truth they have sought to bring us.
The book Bloodline of the Holy Grail relates the fascinating story of our people at the time of Nebuchadnezzar’s invasion of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. Just before the invasion, the high priest Hilkiah instructed the prophet Jeremiah to have the temple treasures hidden deep beneath the Temple built by King Solomon – the son of King David. Underneath the Temple there lay a vast stable complex which could house two thousand horses. A huge amount of gold, silver and precious objects of art and sacrament were hidden and remained there until the year 1096 when the first Crusade was undertaken to retake the Holy Land from the Moslems.
The story behind the efforts of these first Crusaders begins with a Catholic priest by the name of St. Bernard who – evidently unknowingly to the Catholics, was one of our family members. The story goes that when Bernard first made our family aware of his plans to become a Catholic priest, they were incredulous – that is, until he revealed his ingenious plan to them. That plan was none other than to use the power and organizational ability of the Catholic Church to retake the Holy Land from the Muslims and retrieve the ancient treasure that was hidden by Jeremiah and the Temple guard. The Knights Templar were well aware that the treasure still remained there and most likely knew every item of its contents. The later discovery of the Essene’s Dead Sea Scrolls included a copper scroll which contained an inventory of the items. Listed were an enormous amount of ancient manuscripts, as well as the Ark of the Covenant, the Ten Commandments and the Tables of Testimony – in addition to material treasure.
Laurence Gardner describes the Tables of Testimony as having the cosmic equation and the divine law of number, measure and weight, and wrote that, “The mystical art of reading the inscriptions was achieved by the cryptic system of the Qabala.” As you can see, there is more than one way to spell Kaballah. The tablets themselves were said to be made of either sapphire or lapis lazuli. Gardner wrote that; “In addition to the Jerusalem bullion, the Templars also found a wealth of ancient manuscripts in Hebrew and Syriac, providing firsthand accounts that had not been edited by any ecclesiastical authority. In the light of these, it was widely accepted that the Knights possessed an insight which eclipsed orthodox Christianity – an insight which permitted them the certainty that the Church had misinterpreted both the Virgin Birth and the Resurrection.” The Knights Templar’s goals during the Crusades were first of all, to retake the Holy Lands that they believed were given them by God and secondly, to recover the treasures and artifacts hidden under the Temple mount in 70 C.E. when Jerusalem was laid waste by the Romans. Gardner reveals that our family genealogies were written on the walls underneath the Temple. Legend relates that the Ark of the Covenant was, for a time, hidden in the Chartres Cathedral in France.
The Templars religion was Johannite Christianity – the beliefs passed down by John the Baptist to Jesus and then to St. John the Divine and Mary Magdalene. The personal symbol of St. John was a Holy Grail chalice entwined within the coils of the Kundalini serpent. The Knights Templar transferred the Kundalini power to others via a kiss. This is possibly done with a kiss to each area in the body where the chakras are located. Since one of these is at the area of sexuality or generation, it’s quite possible that this rite would seem alarming to outsiders who didn’t understand the reason behind the practice – if they did in fact, kiss in such places, as has been claimed.
Another so-called alarming aspect of the Templars is the depiction of Baphomet which is symbolic of the dark aspect of the Goddess. The depiction by Eliphas Levi in the mid 1800’s is certainly disturbing, but whether it is the same one used by the Templars – I couldn’t say. He claimed that he modeled it on the gargoyles on the cathedrals of Europe. The Templars called the Holy Spirit power the Master Builder and the Freemasons know it as the Great Architect. Both refer to the physiological changes in the human body that the Holy Spirit makes in cleaning toxins from food, water and air from our bodies and also the toxicity of our unresolved emotional trauma and ‘illusory belief systems’. The author of Guardians of the Holy Grail describes the transformation;
“The ancient ‘Serpent on the Tree’, the first teacher of Gnostic wisdom, would then enter the Holy of Holies, the skull of the Knight and activate the Ajna Chakra or Third Eye of intuition, along with the remaining two-thirds of his brain power, to bring forth the timeless Gnostic revelation of “Be still and know that I AM God.” After the Kundalini serpent had completed its ascension to the top of the ‘tree’, the Templar Knight would be full of its Holy Spirit power and a true Human Holy Grail. Then, with his abundant Serpent Power a Templar Knight could heal himself and others, and he could also transmit some of his own power into a new Knight through the vehicle of touch and or the Templar kiss, thus initiating a brother’s process of alchemical development.”
Victoria LePage relates that the Templar-built cathedrals of Europe were covered in symbolical carvings that represent a coded prophecy preserved in stone for future generations, as a countdown to the Aquarian Age – the Age we are in now. She wrote;
“Following on the early Celtic and medieval prophecies, the Rosicrucian’s of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries reiterated their message in more universal terms. The Rose Cross movement electrified the Western scholarly world by prophesying a day of cultural rebirth approaching that would see the renewal of the unitive hopes and values of the first Christians. The Rosicrucian’s cherished what they believed to be a more creative vision of the religion Jesus Christ had founded, one that conformed more truly to the holy principles he had laid down while on Earth: “to gather all mankind under a universal religion of Peace.” It was to be a spiritual revolution in the fullest and most positive sense, an overturning of everything that had gone before – aiming, it would seem, at the uniting of the three Semitic religions under the combined leadership of Qabalist’s, Gnostics and Sufis.”
It appears to me that by the time of the Crusades, 1095–1291 CE, our ancestors had lost much of their spiritual heritage. There was a resurgence of gnostic practices after the Crusaders returned to Western Europe. In the Holy Lands, the Templars met up with Sufi’s, Mandeans, remnants of the Essenes, Kabbalists and the first Jewish Christian congregations and were reacquainted with gnostic practices. You will read a lot of slander towards the Templars and Freemasons. There is no doubt that some of their Orders have become corrupted. Just remember that underneath it all, they had only one goal – which was to reunite with God and further that goal among all humans. As with all other things in this world, there are dark and light versions of most everything.
The Templars Oath of Honor;
“We the Knights of Christ and of the Temple follow the destiny that prepares us to die for Christ. We have the wish to give this rule of living, of work and of honor to the constructors of churches so that Christianity can spread throughout the Earth not so that our name should be remembered, Oh Lord, but that Your Name should live.”
Among other things, the Templars were said to worship the Devil. The author of The Truth Behind the Christ Myth gives some insight into this;
“The fall of the Templar Order transpired when the Christian Inquisition found the Templars worshipping grotesque images of Rex Mundi, whom they naturally assumed was the Devil. They were half right. Rex Mundi was Lucifer, the Lord of Time and Destruction, but like the spiritually advanced members of other mystery schools, the Templars worshipped Baphomet’s (Rex Mundi/Lucifer/Devil) transformative influence, the Kundalini power, which was a concept Christian fundamentalists were never able to fully grasp. Through invoking the destructive power of Rex Mundi and Baphomet’s wisdom, the Templars sought to spiritually evolve and precipitate a golden age of enlightenment.”
From the author of Roslyn Guardian of the Secrets of The Holy Grail we learn this about Mary Magdalene;
“In ancient Egyptian symbolism, the color black indicates wisdom. In the cult of the Black Madonna the Templars were venerating the Mother of Wisdom, the ancient goddess Sophia embodied in the form of the goddess Isis with the Horus child. This pagan concept was disguised as the Christian Madonna and Child. When drawing up the rule for the Templars in 1128, St. Bernard of Clairvaux laid down a specific requirement on all the Knights to make ‘obedience to Bethany and the house of Mary and Martha.’ Many scholars now believe that the great Notre-Dame cathedrals built by the Templars and Cistercians were dedicated not to Mary the mother of Jesus as the church teaches, but to “our Lady’ Mary Magdalene and the son of Jesus instead. In esoteric tradition, Mary Magdalene is described as ‘the symbol of divine wisdom.’ According to the Nazorean tradition, the Magdalene was to be depicted garbed in black like the priestesses of Isis, surmounted by Sophia’s crown of stars. Her infant child wears the golden crown of royalty.”
The downfall of the Templars was due to a conspiracy between King Philippe IV Le Bel of France and the then current Pope. King Philippe was from the Valois dynasty of France, who were Rex Deus. King Philippe however, had been denied membership in the Templars and also owed them a great deal of money so he had a great resentment towards them. Also, his father had been kidnapped and held for ransom and the Templars had refused to pay the ransom. French forces raided the Templars headquarters and properties only to find that the majority of the Templar’s property and valuables had already been removed, as they were forewarned. They arrested as many Templars as they could find and subjected them to the Office of the Inquisition with their usual racks, whips, stakes, chains, cold, dark, dungeons and all the other torture devices they were so good at making and using. This caused the Templars to go underground and form new secret societies such as the Knights of St. John and Freemasons. After this sad episode the foremost goal of the European Serpents of Wisdom was to remove the Catholic hierarchy and all self-serving monarchies from power – even if they were our own family members. Their goal was to transform Europe into a Dragon Empire ruled over by benevolent Serpents.
I will finish the subject of the Templars with the following from The Guardians of the Holy Grail;
Within your Johannite logo is a cup with a snake curled around it. I have seen this symbol associated with John the Apostle. Is this the ancient symbol of the Johannites? ‘Yes. The cup with the snake curled around it is synonymous with a flame emerging from the cup.’ What do the cup and flame represent? ‘The cup is representative of both the Holy Grail and the human vehicle which possesses the sacred flame within.’
“Freemasonry considers itself to be a peculiar system of morality based on brotherly love, relief, and truth. Freemasonry is not a religion in the same way that the concept of ma ’at (truth and justice) was not an integral part of some theological structure or legend. Both are pragmatic realizations that the continuance of civilization and social progress rests with the individual’s ability to “do unto others as you would have done to you.” The Hiram Key – Pharaoh’s, Freemasons and the Discovery of the Secret Scrolls of Jesus
From what little I have studied the Freemasons thirty-three degrees of initiation, I can tell there is a lot of Biblical and family history contained in the rites. The author of The Knights of the Holy Grail relates the following about one of their degrees;
“The Dead Sea Scrolls record that the Sons of Zadok were the descendants of the high priests of the Temple who were known as the Righteous Seed and the Sons of Dawn. This ritual commemorates James the Just, who succeeded Jesus in the position of the Zadok, or Teacher of Righteousness and is obviously a celebration of the ancient Jewish tradition of the hereditary transmission of holiness preserved by the Rex Deus families. Freemasonic rituals claim that the Craft arose at the time of Hiram Abif, who was killed by a blow to the temple for his refusal to betray a secret, and this is an allegorical reference to the death of James the Just. Hiram was killed immediately prior to the completion of Solomon’s Temple and, almost 1,000 years later, when work on the Herodian Temple was nearing completion, building was brought to a temporary standstill as a mark of respect for James, the brother of Jesus, who had just been ritually murdered. Thus, when Freemasons celebrate the ritual death of Hiram Abif, they are commemorating one of the founders of Rex Deus.”
The Freemason’s myth’s main character is Hiram Abif. In the story Hiram is the head craftsman building the temple of Solomon. The story goes that three apprentice masons accosted him in order to make him divulge the secrets of his building skills which, I believe, represent the secrets of the Freemasons and the ancient Mystery schools. Hiram refused, so they killed him. According to the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, Hiram Abif is; “a type-figure of all the saviors of humanity who sacrificed themselves for the salvation of mankind, a direct human representative of its prototype among the divinities, such as Odin and Visvakarman, the builder and artificer of the gods. Hiram Abif is also the type-figure of the individual’s inner god, crucified upon the cross of material existence.”
The author of The Knights of the Holy Grail relates that the 29th degree describes the destruction of the second Temple in 70 C.E. It tells of the grief experienced by the brethren and how they had to flee their homeland. He states that it was their intent to erect a third Temple, but this one was to be a “spiritual rather than physical edifice,” which, according to the author, is “a direct reference to the spiritual obligations of the Rex Deus families for whom the creation of this new ‘Temple of God on Earth’ is a sacred duty.” He goes on to say;
“Enshrining Rex Deus secrets in a variety of degrees within the complex symbolism of Freemasonry is akin to a man on the run seeking refuge in a large and crowded city. It is similar to the device used by Earl William in randomly hiding a plethora of Templar and Rex Deus symbolism amongst the crowded and apparently confused collection of carvings in Roslyn Chapel. Despite the vigorous attempts of the Hanoverian censors, the rituals used in these degrees have been recorded for posterity and may well still be in use in France and America. The spiritual inspiration of Freemasonry gave the world the gift of the American Constitution and made a significant contribution to the establishment of the principles of liberte’, egalite’ and fraternite’ that inspired the French Revolution and, ultimately, the transformation of despotism into democracy.
…. Pope Pius openly acknowledged that the Freemasons were the authors of his debasement and fulminated furiously against them in a series of encyclicals, papal bulls, and allocutions. Unlike many Masonic historians within the craft today, this aged pope was under no illusions as to the origins of the organization that had stripped him of all earthly power. For him, Freemasonry derived directly from the heretical Order of the Knights Templar whom he describes as being Gnostic from their inception and followers of the Johannite Heresy. Nor was Pius under any illusions as to the true purpose of the Masonic fraternity, for according to him, their aim was to destroy Holy Mother the Church. For him there was little difference between the true aim of the Rex Deus families, that of reforming the Church by bringing back the true teachings of Jesus, and the destruction of the Church that had propelled him to the dizzy heights of the papacy. Can we honestly doubt his views? It was Pius IX who first promulgated the doctrine of Papal Infallibility.”
From Fragments of a Faith Forgotten;
“Not only were many of the founders of the United States Government Masons, but they received aid from a secret and august body existing in Europe, which helped them to establish this country for a peculiar and particular purpose known only to the initiated few. The Great Seal is the signature of this exalted body – unseen and for the most part unknown – and the unfinished pyramid upon its reverse side is a trestle board setting forth symbolically the task to the accomplishment of which the United States government was dedicated from the day of its inception.”
I am sure that exalted body he refers to, are the Rosicrucians.
Manly Hall, the author of The Secret Teachings of All Ages was considered a master scholar of the Freemasons and the ancient Wisdom religion. His books are in the public domain, so I will use quite a bit of his material in this post. I will be using snippets of his material and so the following is not continuous. In the following he speaks about Freemasonic symbols;
“The apron shown above contains a wealth of symbolism: the beehive, emblematic of the Masonic lodge itself, the trowel, the mallet, and the trestle board; the rough and trued ashlars; the pyramids and hills of Lebanon; the pillars, the Temple, and checkerboard floor; and the blazing star and tools of the Craft. The center of the apron is occupied by the compass and square, representative of the Macrocosm and the microcosm, and the alternately black and white serpent of astral light. Below is an acacia branch with seven sprigs, signifying the life Centers of the superior and the inferior man. The skull and cross bones are a continual reminder that the spiritual nature attains liberation only after the philosophical death of man’s sensuous personality. To the initiated Builder the name Chiram Abif signifies “My Father, the Universal Spirit one in essence, three in aspect.” Thus the murdered Master is a type of the Cosmic Martyr – the crucified Spirit of Good, the dying god – whose Mystery is celebrated throughout the world. To interpret the Hiramic legend requires familiarity with both the Pythagorean and Qabbalistic systems of numbers and letters, and also the philosophic and astronomic cycles of the Egyptians, Chaldeans, and Brahmins.
It is generally admitted by modem Masonic scholars that the story of the martyred Chiram is based upon the Egyptian rites of Osiris, whose death and resurrection figuratively portrayed the spiritual death of man and his regeneration through initiation into the Mysteries. Chiram is also identified with Hermes through the inscription on the Emerald Tablet. From these associations it is evident that Chiram is to be considered as a prototype of humanity; in fact he is Plato’s Idea (archetype) of man. Thus the building of Solomon’s Temple represents the consummation of the magnum opus, which cannot be realized without the assistance of Chiram, the Universal Agent. The Masonic Mysteries teach the initiate how to prepare within his own soul a miraculous powder of projection by which it is possible for him to transmute the base lump of human ignorance, perversion, and discord into an ingot of spiritual and philosophic gold.
Sufficient similarity exists between the Masonic Chiram and the Kundalini of Hindu mysticism to warrant the assumption that Chiram may be considered a symbol also of the Spirit Fire moving through the sixth ventricle of the spinal column. The exact science of human regeneration is the Lost Key of Masonry, for when the Spirit Fire is lifted up through the thirty-three degrees, or segments of the spinal column, and enters into the domed chamber of the human skull, it finally passes into the pituitary body (Isis), where it invokes Ra (the pineal gland) and demands the Sacred Name. Operative Masonry, in the fullest meaning of that term, signifies the process by which the Eye of Horus is opened. Little is known concerning the function of the pineal body, which Descartes suggested (more wisely than he knew) might be the abode of the Spirit of man. As its name signifies, the pineal gland is the sacred pine cone in man – the eye single, which cannot be opened until Chiram (the Spirit Fire) is raised through the sacred seals which are called the Seven Churches in Asia.”
This brings us to the point of the secret meaning of the Book of Revelation in the Bible. There are many references to sevens of different things in the book. The seven churches in Asia are none other than the chakras! No doubt the churches are in Asia because that’s where the doctrine originated from. This was something confirmed by Edgar Cayce. I am including this information regarding the Freemasons degrees to reinforce the fact that when it comes down to it our ancestors have always been trying to preserve and perpetuate the way for humans to reunite with God via our built-in power centers.
Next, the author describes the actual physical, i.e. ‘alchemical’ action that takes place within the body of the initiate;
“Chiram is the mysterious fiery, airy water which must be raised through the three grand centers symbolized by the ladder with three rungs and the sunburst flowers mentioned in the description of the Hindu painting. It must also pass upward by means of the ladder of seven rungs – the seven plexuses proximate to the spine. The nine segments of the sacrum and coccyx are pierced by ten foramina, through which pass the roots of the Tree of Life. Nine is the sacred number of man, and in the symbolism of the sacrum and coccyx a great mystery is concealed. That part of the body from the kidneys downward was termed by the early Qabalist’s the Land of Egypt into which the children of Israel were taken during the captivity. Out of Egypt, Moses (the illuminated mind, as his name implies) led the tribes of Israel (the twelve faculties) by raising the brazen serpent in the wilderness upon the symbol of the Tau cross. Not only Chiram but the god-men of nearly every pagan Mystery ritual are personifications of the Spirit Fire in the human spinal cord.”
This Spirit Fire is said to flow downwards into generation, and to reverse the flow and turn it upwards, is to spiritualize the fluid. This is also known as turning back the Jordan or the waters of the Red Sea. Which brings us back to the question; are there real people and events in the Bible? Our Semitic ancestors with their distinctive clothing style who lived in the Land of Goshen can still be seen depicted on the walls of Egyptian ruins. Most certainly archeology, literature and tradition tell us they were real people, places and events. However – the lines between real, archetype and allegory are very blurred.
“The beehive is found in Masonry as a reminder that in diligence and labor for a common good true happiness and prosperity are found. The bee is a symbol of wisdom, for as this tiny insect collects pollen from the flowers, so men may extract wisdom from the experiences of daily life. The bee is sacred to the goddess Venus and, according to mystics it is one of several forms of life which came to the Earth from the planet Venus millions of years ago. Wheat and bananas are said to be of similar origin. This is the reason why the origin of these three forms of life cannot be traced. The fact that bees are ruled by queens is one reason why this insect is considered a sacred feminine symbol.”
“According to Freemasonic symbolism, Enoch, fearing that all knowledge of the sacred Mysteries would be lost at the time of the Deluge, erected the two columns mentioned in the quotation. Upon the metal column in appropriate allegorical symbols he engraved the secret teaching and upon the marble column placed an inscription stating that a short distance away a priceless treasure would be discovered in a subterranean vault. After having thus faithfully completed his labors, Enoch was translated from the brow of Mount Moriah. In time the location of the secret vaults was lost, but after the lapse of ages there came another builder – an initiate after the order of Enoch – and he, while laying the foundations for another temple to the Great Architect of the Universe, discovered the long-lost vaults and the secrets contained within.”
“The sanctum sanctorum of Freemasonry is ornamented with the gnostic jewels of a thousand ages; its rituals ring with the divinely inspired words of seers and sages. A hundred religions have brought their gifts of wisdom to its altar; arts and sciences unnumbered have contributed to its symbolism. Freemasonry is a world-wide university, teaching the liberal arts and sciences of the soul to all who will hearken to its words. Its chairs are seats of learning and its pillars uphold an arch of universal education. Its trestle boards are inscribed with the eternal verities of all ages and upon those who comprehend its sacred depths has dawned the realization that within the Freemasonic Mysteries lie hidden the long-lost arcana sought by all peoples since the genesis of human reason. The philosophic power of Freemasonry lies in its symbols – its priceless heritage from the Mystery schools of antiquity.”
“The lambskin apron worn by the Freemasons over that part of the body symbolized by Typhon or Judas represents that purification of the generative processes which is a prerequisite to true spirituality.”
The author of the book Return of the Serpents of Wisdom relates that;
“The Legend of Hiram Abif, within which Chiram was personified as Hiram Abif, the Master Builder of Solomon’s Temple. At the outset of his legend Chiram as Hiram Abif is murdered and buried by jealous masons as he attempts to leave the grounds of Solomon’s Temple thus symbolizing the Kundalini’s death and entombment at the base of the human spine. Eventually, however, Hiram is rescued by King Solomon who reaches down into the Master Builder’s grave and pulls him out with the strong grip of a lion’s paw. This last episode of Hiram’s drama represents the last stage of spiritual practice in which the Solar Spirit (whose representative animal is a lion) located in the crown chakra uses the attracting force of its positive polarity to pull Chiram, the negatively charged Serpent Fire, up to its seat at the top of the head.”
In his book World Gnosis Mark Pinkham tells us that the legends passed down through the secret societies relate that the regions of Sirius, Orion and the Pleiades are the home of the celestial Serpents of Wisdom and that the first Gnostic teacher of humanity was Karttikeya also known as the archangel, St. Michael. He says that the Great White Brotherhood was originally started on Sirius – “the great white lodge in the cosmos”. The channel Alice Bailey said that Masonry originated under “direct Sirian influence, and was modeled after certain Sirian institutions.” The Sirian influence on the secret societies is ongoing to this day. Mark Pinkham has this to say about the Sirians and their Masonic influence;
“The Sirian’s eternal support of Freemasonry is currently honored in many Masonic lodges by their prominently featured five pointed Blazing Star, which according to the late Freemason Grand Master Albert Pike, is the definitive Masonic symbol of Sirius. The Sirian support began on the Motherlands of Lemuria and Atlantis where the extra-terrestrials began using the Knighted Orders as their vehicles to evolve humanity to a point where it could accept a one-world government and a one-world spiritual tradition. Through the Freemasons, the Sirians apparently had a hand in founding the nation of the U.S., which they have always intended to use as one of their primary vehicles to precipitate the coming one world civilization. While working in tandem with the Sirian agenda, the Masonic Founding Fathers were inspired to choose July 4, 1776 as the birthday of the new nation, thus placing the destiny of the U.S. directly in the hands of the Sirians. This special date corresponds to the annual transit of the Sun moving into a direct alignment with Sirius, thus making the astrological birth chart and destiny of the U.S. forever aligned with the Sirian agenda.”
The authors of The Hiram Key – Pharaoh’s, Freemasons and the Discovery of the Secret Scrolls of Jesus say that; “Freemason’s carry the seed of the mind of the Nazoreans and most particularly Jesus. The legend and drama of the Master Mason’s degree constitutes an indisputable link between Freemasonry and the ancient Mysteries, and few have fathomed the esoteric significance of this degree and of the legend of Hiram Abif.”
Robert McCoy in his book The General history of Freemasonry wrote;
“It appears that all the perfection of civilization and all the achievements made in philosophy, science and art among the ancients are due to these institutions which, under the veil of mystery sought to illustrate the sublimest truths about religion, morality and virtue and impose them in the hearts of their disciples. Their chief object was to teach the doctrine of One God, the resurrection of man to eternal life, the dignity of the human soul and to lead the people to see the shadow of the Deity in the beauty, magnificence and splendor of the universe.”
Freemasonry is an organization that worked behind the scenes to change society for the betterment of the people. They were behind the rebellion against King John of England which led to the Magna Carta and the House of Commons, which was considered the first democratic type of government. They were behind the French and American Revolutions. They are still behind the scenes working to spread democracy on Earth. They have fought tyranny wherever they found it – be it in a royal house, a government or a church. The Christian Reformation was brought about by the Serpents of Wisdom. The author of Return of the Serpents of Wisdom speaks about their contribution to the establishment of America;
“While the Serpent Protestant Confederacy was busy solidifying a democratic Europe, many leading Serpents of Wisdom on the continent were quietly drawing up plans for what was to be a model democratic nation across the western sea. Referred to within closed circles of initiates as the New Atlantis and the New land of the Phoenix, this proposed civilization was to be an ideal democratic republic. It was to allow freedom of speech and belief while being governed by Serpents of Wisdom elected by the people and for the people. ….Starting in the late 1600s members of the European Order of Serpents began leaving their comfortable lives behind in order to undertake the long, arduous journey across the Atlantic Ocean to become citizens of the New Land of the Phoenix. Once in North America they proceeded to organize a cohesive network of Rosicrucian and Freemasonic Lodges within a nation of thirteen colonies, the ancient number of the Phoenix Dragon.
In 1694 a Rosicrucian colony was established in Pennsylvania and by the early 1700’s Freemasonic Lodges were literally sweeping across the new land. By the beginning of the Revolutionary period there were a multitude of common lodges and seven Grand Provincial Lodges scattered evenly throughout the Thirteen Colonies. Within these various lodges the Serpents could meet and discuss strategies for the founding of an independent nation unshackled by British rule. In order to throw off the yoke of the British Crown, the Freemasonic Lodges proceeded to found subversive organizations, such as the Sons of Liberty, which were calculated to intimidate British officials and promote the boycott of all British imports. The Masons also attempted to stir up anti-British sentiment among the colonial masses by presiding over pep rallies in taverns and other public meeting places.
…When the war with Britain was finally at hand, the North American Freemasons pooled their resources in order to organize a formidable resistance against their oppressive rulers. They chose the Rosicrucian and Master Mason George Washington to supervise the building of an army, and brought over from Germany the Freemason Baron Von Steuben to instruct the virgin troops in the art of battle.
In its final form, the Colonial Army was a Military Lodge and a Who’s Who of American Colonial Freemasonry. Over 2000 of its officers were Freemasons and out of these at least 100 were also Freemasonic Grandmasters. Included in this elite list was Washington, Paul Revere and Joseph Warren, the Grandmaster of the Massachusetts Grand Lodge who became famous for sacrificing his life while leading a battalion up Bunker Hill.”
According to a New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry;
In the tense times before the American Revolution, the secrecy of the Masonic Lodges offered the colonial patriots the opportunity to meet and plan their strategy. The Boston Tea Party was entirely Masonic, carried out by members of St. John’s Lodge during an adjourned meeting. Of the fifty-six signers of the Declaration of Independence, only one was known not to be a Freemason, asserted Masonic writer Manley P. Hall, who in ‘The Secret Teachings of all Ages’ also told of a most mysterious incident at the time of the signing of this historic document. As the debate over their future reached a crescendo and many hesitated to sign the declaration realizing they would be putting their life on the line, suddenly a tall stranger with a pale face spoke out. No one knew who he was or where he came from, but the force of his oration was transfixing. His stirring words ended with the cry, “God has given America to be free!” Amid cheers filled with emotion, every man rushed forward to sign the declaration except the stranger. “He had disappeared”, wrote Hall, “nor was he ever seen again or his identity established.” Hall said this episode paralleled similar incidents in world history, when strange unknown men suddenly appeared just in time for the creation of some new nation. “Are they coincidences,” he asked, “or do they demonstrate that the divine wisdom of the Ancient Mysteries is still present in the world, serving mankind as it did of old?”
St. Germain is the mysterious gentleman who gave the rousing speech and then disappeared!
Mark Pinkham relates this fascinating information;
“The (U.S.) Constitution was modeled after the unwritten constitution of the Five Nations of the Iroquois, the native Serpents of North America. Much of the content of this document was acquired by Ben Franklin and other leading Freemasons who attended treaty councils of the Iroquois and learned firsthand the tenets of their ancient constitution. By incorporating these native precepts into the United States new Constitution, the Founding Father’s indirectly composed their own Serpent Constitution.”
The tie in with the Freemasons and Egyptian symbolism has always been a mystery to most people. The simple truth is that Egypt has played a huge role in the history of our family as is illustrated in these posts. In the book The Genesis of the Grail Kings, the author wrote that in the hermetic lore of the Egyptians spiritual regeneration took place through the thirty three vertebrae of the spinal column until reaching the pituitary gland which invoked the pineal body. He says this is the reason the Freemasons have thirty three degrees of initiation.
The book Morals and Dogma by Grand Mason Albert Pike is considered one of the authoritative volumes for insights into Freemasonry. It has been said that Albert Pike was corrupted by an agent of the Rothschild’s by the name of Mizzoni. I don’t know if this is true or not. Somewhere I read that the cabal used their first clone on Earth in the 1800’s. My mind immediately went to Albert Pike. Albert Pike was a genius and the leader of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. If the cabal wanted to corrupt American Freemasonry, Pike would have been their most likely target. However, what I have read of his works, I agree with. Whether he was corrupted afterwards and was the instigator of the plans leading into the twentieth century regarding the World Wars, I couldn’t say.
The following are just snippets from Morals and Dogma and are not continuous. I will intersperse with my comments;
“Our northern ancestors worshipped this tri-une Deity; Odin, the Almighty Father; Frea, his wife, emblem of universal matter; and Thor, his son, the mediator. But above all these was the Supreme God, “the author of everything that existed, the Eternal, the Ancient, the Living and Awful Being, the Searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changes.”
“The pavement, alternately black and white, symbolizes, whether so intended or not, the good and evil Principles of the Egyptian and Persian creed. It is the warfare of Michael and Satan, of the Gods and Titans, of Balder and Lok; between light and shadow, which is darkness; day and night; Two, or the duad, is the symbol of antagonism; of good and evil, light and darkness. It is Cain and Abel, Eve and Lilith, Jachin and Boaz, Ormuzd and Ahriman, Osiris and Typhon.”
There is no doubt that there is within Gnosticism this dualism, this clash of antagonists. However, Yeshua sees this differently now and this is reflected in his philosophy of turning the other cheek and loving your enemy. He says that he no longer believes we should strive to transcend dualism, but not fight it at all. Just accept it. See it for what it is. Don’t judge it as one being bad and the other good, just look at it dispassionately. As one author stated in an earlier post, Jesus did away with the flail of the Egyptian Pharaoh used to smite one’s enemy. Yeshua’s Way is the Way of the Heart. He says we are to overcome Satan – with love.
“In the ancient Orient, all religion was more or less a mystery and there was no divorce from it of philosophy. The popular theology, taking the multitude of allegories and symbols for realities, degenerated into a worship of the celestial luminaries, of imaginary deities with human feelings, passions, appetites, and lusts, of idols, stones, animals, reptiles. Though Masonry is identical with the ancient Mysteries, it is so only in this qualified sense: that it presents but an imperfect image of their brilliancy, the ruins only of their grandeur, and a system that has experienced progressive alterations, Masonry is a march and a struggle toward the Light.”
“It is not strange that, thousands of years ago, men worshipped the Sun, and that today that worship continues among the Parsees. Originally they looked beyond the orb to the invisible God, of whom the sun’s light, seemingly identical with generation and life, was the manifestation and outflowing….. They personified him as Brahma, Amun, Osiris, Bel, Adonis, Malkarth, Mithras, and Apollo.”
“The Holy Kabalah, or tradition of the children of Seth, was carried from Chaldæa by Abraham, taught to the Egyptian priesthood by Joseph, recovered and purified by Moses, concealed under symbols in the Bible, revealed by the Savior to Saint John, and contained, entire, under hieratic figures analogous to those of all antiquity, in the Apocalypse of that Apostle.”
“The true name of Satan, the Kabbalists say, is that of Yahweh reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but the negation of God. The Devil is the personification of atheism or idolatry. For the Initiates, this is not a person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil. It is the instrument of liberty or free will. They represent this force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythological and horned form of the God Pan; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the legend.”
“The first Druids were the true children of the Magi, and their initiation came from Egypt and Chaldæa, that is to say, from the pure sources of the primitive Kabalah. They adored the Trinity under the names of Isis or Hesus, the Supreme Harmony; of Belen or Bel, which in Assyrian means Lord, a name corresponding to that of Adonai; and of Camul or Camaël, a name that in the Kabalah personifies the Divine Justice.”
“There can be no interference with, or remittance of, or protection from, the natural effects of our wrongful acts. God will not interpose between the cause and its consequence; and in that sense there can be no forgiveness of sins. The act which has debased our soul may be repented of, may be turned from; but the injury is done. The debasement may be redeemed by after-efforts, the stain obliterated by bitterer struggles and severer sufferings; but the efforts and the endurance which might have raised the soul to the loftiest heights are now exhausted in merely regaining what it has lost. There must always be a wide difference between him who only ceases to do evil, and him who has always done well. He will certainly be a far more scrupulous watcher over his conduct, and far more careful of his deeds, who believes that those deeds will inevitably bear their natural consequences, exempt from after intervention, than he who believes that penitence and pardon will at any time unlink the chain of sequences. Surely we shall do less wrong and injustice, if the conviction is fixed and embedded in our souls that everything done is done irrevocably, that even the omnipotence of God cannot uncommit a deed, cannot make that undone which has been done; that every act of ours must bear its allotted fruit, according to the everlasting laws, must remain forever ineffaceably inscribed on the tablets of Universal Nature.”
“Masonry does not occupy itself with crying down this world, with its splendid beauty, it’s thrilling interests, its glorious works, its noble and holy affections; nor exhort us to detach our hearts from this earthly life, as empty, fleeting, and unworthy, and fix them upon Heaven, as the only sphere deserving the love of the loving or the meditation of the wise. It teaches that man has high duties to perform, and a high destiny to fulfill, on this Earth; that this world is not merely the portal to another; and that this life, though not our only one, is an integral one, and the particular one with which we are here meant to be concerned; that the present is our scene of action, and the future for speculation and for trust; that man was sent upon the Earth to live in it, to enjoy it, to study it, to love it, to embellish it, to make the most of it. He is sent into this world, not to be constantly hankering after, dreaming of, preparing for another; but to do his duty and fulfill his destiny on this Earth; to do all that lies in his power to improve it, to render it a scene of elevated happiness to himself, to those around him, to those who are to come after him. His life here is part of his immortality; and this world, also, is among the stars. A belief in the one true God, and a moral and virtuous life, constitute the only religious requisites needed to enable a man to be a Mason.”
“Masonry has ever the most vivid remembrance of the terrible and artificial torments that were used to put down new forms of religion or extinguish the old. It sees with the eye of memory the ruthless extermination of all the people of all sexes and ages, because it was their misfortune not to know the God of the Hebrews, or to worship Him under the wrong name, by the savage troops of Moses and Joshua. It sees the thumb-screws and the racks, the whip, the gallows, and the stake, the victims of Diocletian and Alva, the miserable Covenanters, the Non-Conformists, Servetus burned, and the unoffending Quaker hung. It sees Cranmer hold his arm, now no longer erring, in the flame until the hand drops off in the consuming heat. It sees the persecutions of Peter and Paul, the martyrdom of Stephen, the trials of Ignatius, Polycarp, Justin, and Irenæus; and then in turn the sufferings of the wretched Pagans under the Christian emperors, as of the Papists in Ireland and under Elizabeth and the bloated Henry.
The Roman Virgin naked before the hungry lions; young Margaret Graham tied to a stake at low-water mark, and there left to drown, singing hymns to God until the savage waters broke over her head; and all that in all ages have suffered by hunger and nakedness, peril and prison, the rack, the stake, and the sword, – it sees them all, and shudders at the long roll of human atrocities. And it sees also the oppression still practiced in the name of religion – men shot in a Christian jail in Christian Italy for reading the Christian Bible; in almost every Christian State, laws forbidding freedom of speech on matters relating to Christianity; and the gallows reaching its arm over the pulpit. The fires of Moloch in Syria, the harsh mutilations in the name of Astarte, Cybele, Jehovah; the barbarities of imperial Pagan torturers; the still grosser torments which Roman-Gothic Christians in Italy and Spain heaped on their brother-men; the fiendish cruelties to which Switzerland, France, the Netherlands, England, Scotland, Ireland, America, have been witnesses, are none too powerful to warn man of the unspeakable evils which follow from mistakes and errors in the matter of religion, and especially from investing the God of love with the cruel and vindictive passions of erring humanity, and making blood to have a sweet savor in his nostrils, and groans of agony to be delicious to his ears.
Man never had the right to usurp the unexercised prerogative of God, and condemn and punish another for his belief. Born in a Protestant land, we are of that faith. If we had opened our eyes to the light under the shadows of St. Peter’s at Rome, we should have been devout Catholics; born in the Jewish quarter of Aleppo, we should have contemned Christ as an imposter; in Constantinople, we should have cried “Allah il Allah, God is great and Mahomet is his prophet!” Birth, place, and education give us our faith. Few believe in any religion because they have examined the evidences of its authenticity, and made up a formal judgment, upon weighing the testimony.
The Mason’s creed goes further than that. No man, it holds, has any right in any way to interfere with the religious belief of another. It holds that each man is absolutely sovereign as to his own belief, and that belief is a matter absolutely foreign to all who do not entertain the same belief; and that, if there were any right of persecution at all, it would in all cases be a mutual right; because one party has the same right as the other to sit as judge in his own case; and God is the only magistrate that can rightfully decide between them. Among all the ancient nations there was one faith and one idea of Deity for the enlightened, intelligent, and educated, and another for the common people. To this rule the Hebrew’s were no exception. Yehovah, to the mass of the people, was like the gods of the nations around them, except that he was the peculiar God, first of the family of Abraham, of that of Isaac, and of that of Jacob, and afterward the national God; and, as they believed, more powerful than the other gods of the same nature worshipped by their neighbors – “Who among the Baalim is like unto thee, O Yehovah?” – expressed their whole creed.
The Deity of the early Hebrews talked to Adam and Eve in the garden of delight, as he walked in it in the cool of the day; he conversed with Kayin; he sat and ate with Abraham in his tent; that patriarch required a visible token, before he would believe in his positive promise; he permitted Abraham to expostulate with him, and to induce him to change his first determination in regard to Sodom; he wrestled with Jacob; he showed Moses his person, though not his face; he dictated the minutest police regulations and the dimensions of the tabernacle and its furniture, to the Israelites; he insisted on and delighted in sacrifices and burnt-offerings; he was angry, jealous, and revengeful, as well as wavering and irresolute; he allowed Moses to reason him out of his fixed resolution utterly to destroy his people; he commanded the performance of the most shocking and hideous acts of cruelty and barbarity. He hardened the heart of Pharaoh; he repented of the evil that he had said he would do unto the people of Nineveh; and he did it not, to the disgust and anger of Jonah.
But such were not the ideas of the intellectual and enlightened few among the Hebrews. It is certain that they possessed a knowledge of the true nature and attributes of God; as the same class of men did among the other nations – Zoroaster, Menu, Confucius, Socrates, and Plato. But their doctrines on this subject were esoteric; they did not communicate them to the people at large, but only to a favored few; and as they were communicated in Egypt and India, in Persia and Phœnicia, in Greece and Samothrace, in the greater mysteries, to the Initiates. It (Freemasonry) is philosophical, because it teaches the great Truths concerning the nature and existence of one supreme Deity, and the existence and immortality of the soul. It revives the Academy of Plato, and the wise teachings of Socrates. It reiterates the maxims of Pythagoras, Confucius, and Zoroaster, and reverentially enforces the sublime lessons of him who died upon the cross.
The ancients thought that universal humanity acted under the influence of two opposing principles, the good and the evil: of which the good urged men toward truth, independence, and devotedness; and the evil toward falsehood, servility, and selfishness. Masonry represents the good principle and constantly wars against the evil one. It is the Hercules, the Osiris, the Apollo, the Mithras, and the Ormuzd, at everlasting and deadly feud with the demons of ignorance, brutality, baseness, falsehood, slavishness of soul, intolerance, superstition, tyranny, meanness, the insolence of wealth, and bigotry.
We are all of us, though not all equally, mistaken. The cherished dogmas of each of us are not, as we fondly suppose, the pure truth of God; but simply our own special form of error, our guesses at truth, the refracted and fragmentary rays of light that have fallen upon our own minds. Our little systems have their day, and cease to be; they are but broken lights of God; and He is more than they. Perfect truth is not attainable anywhere. We style this degree that of Perfection; and yet what it teaches is imperfect and defective. Yet we are not to relax in the pursuit of truth, nor contentedly acquiesce in error. It is our duty always to press forward in the search; for though absolute truth is unattainable, yet the amount of error in our views is capable of progressive and perpetual diminution; and thus Masonry is a continual struggle toward the light.
Masonry, around whose altars the Christian, the Hebrew, the Moslem, the Brahmin, the followers of Confucius and Zoroaster, can assemble as brethren and unite in prayer to the one God who is above all the Baalim, must needs leave it to each of its Initiates to look for the foundation of his faith and hope to the written scriptures of his own religion. For itself it finds those truths definite enough, which are written by the finger of God upon the heart of man and on the pages of the book of nature.
The true Mason, sincerely holding that a supreme God created and governs this world, believes also that He governs it by laws, which, though wise, just, and beneficent, are yet steady, unwavering, inexorable. He believes that his agonies and sorrows are ordained for his chastening, his strengthening, his elaboration and development; because they are the necessary results of the operation of laws, the best that could be devised for the happiness and purification of the species, and to give occasion and opportunity for the practice of all the virtues, from the homeliest and most common, to the noblest and most sublime; or perhaps not even that, but the best adapted to work out the vast, awful, glorious, eternal designs of the Great Spirit of the Universe.
The religion taught by Moses, which, like the laws of Egypt, enunciated the principle of exclusion, borrowed, at every period of its existence, from all the creeds with which it came in contact. While, by the studies of the learned and wise, it enriched itself with the most admirable principles of the religions of Egypt and Asia, it was changed, in the wanderings of the people, by everything that was most impure or seductive in the pagan manners and superstitions. It was one thing in the times of Moses and Aaron, another in those of David and Solomon, and still another in those of Daniel and Philo.
Emanation from the Deity of all spiritual beings, progressive degeneration of these beings from emanation to emanation, redemption and return of all to the purity of the Creator; and, after the re-establishment of the primitive harmony of all, a fortunate and truly divine condition of all, in the bosom of God; such were the fundamental teachings of Gnosticism.
The Logos, Chief of Intelligence, of which he is the general representative, is named archangel, type and representative of all spirits, even those of mortals. He is also styled the man-type and primitive man, Adam Kadmon. The Word is not only the Creator, but occupies the place of the Supreme Being. Through him all the powers and attributes of God act. On the other side, as first representative of God gives to man the soul or intelligence, which exists before the body and which he unites with the body. The reasoning principle comes from God through the Word, and communes with God and with the Word; but there is also in man an irrational principle, that of the inclinations and passions which produce disorder, emanating from inferior spirits who fill the air as ministers of God.
The body, taken from the earth, and the irrational principle that animates it concurrently with the rational principle, are hated by God, while the rational soul which He has given it, is, as it were, captive in this prison, this coffin, that encompasses it. The present condition of man is not his primitive condition, when he was the image of the Logos. He has fallen from his first estate. But he may raise himself again, by following the directions of Wisdom and of the angels which God has commissioned to aid him in freeing himself from the bonds of the body, and combating evil, the existence whereof God has permitted, to furnish him the means of exercising his liberty. The souls that are purified, not by the law but by light, rise to the heavenly regions, to enjoy there a perfect felicity. Those that persevere in evil go from body to body, the seats of passions and evil desires.”
“Amun, at first the God of Lower Egypt only, where Moshah was reared
[a word that in Hebrew means truth]
, was the supreme God. He was styled “the Celestial Lord, who sheds Light on hidden things”. He was the source of that divine life, of which the crux ansata is the symbol; and the source of all power. He united all the attributes that the ancient Oriental Theosophy assigned to the Supreme Being. He was the Pleroma, or ‘Fullness of things,’ for He comprehended in Himself everything; and the Light; for he was the Sun-God. He was unchangeable in the midst of everything phenomenal in his worlds. He created nothing; but everything emanated from Him; and of Him all the other Gods were but manifestations.
Moshah himself was an initiate in the mysteries of Egypt, as he was compelled to be, as the adopted son of the daughter of Pharaoh, Thouoris, daughter of Sesostris-Ramses; who, as her tomb and monuments show, was, in the right of her infant husband, Regent of Lower Egypt or the delta at the time of the Hebrew Prophet’s birth, reigning at Heliopolis. She was also, as the reliefs on her tomb show, a Priestess of Hathor and Neith, the two great primeval goddesses. As her adopted son, living in her palace and presence forty years, and during that time scarcely acquainted with his brethren the Jews, the law of Egypt compelled his initiation: and we find in many of his enactments the intention of preserving, between the common people and the initiates, the line of separation which he found in Egypt. Moshah and Aharun his brother, the whole series of High-Priests, the Council of the seventy Elders, Salomon and the entire succession of prophets, were in possession of a higher science; and of that science Masonry is, at least, the lineal descendant. It was familiarly known as The Knowledge of the Word.”
“He, the first Hermes, was the Intelligence or Word of God. Moved with compassion for a race living without law, and wishing to teach them that they sprang from his bosom, and to point out to them the way that they should go [the books which the first Hermes, the same with Enoch, had written on the mysteries of divine science, in the sacred characters, being unknown to those who lived after the flood], God sent to man Osiris and Isis, accompanied by Thoth, the incarnation or terrestrial repetition of the first Hermes; who taught men the arts, science, and the ceremonies of religion; and then ascended to Heaven or the Moon. Osiris was the Principle of Good. Typhon, like Ahriman, was the principle and source of all that is evil in the moral and physical order. Like the Satan of Gnosticism, he was confounded with Matter.”
“The Jews of Syria and Judea were the direct precursors of Gnosticism; and in their doctrines were ample Oriental elements. These Jews had had with the Orient, at two different periods, intimate relations, familiarizing them with the doctrines of Asia, and especially of Chaldea and Persia; their forced residence in central Asia under the Assyrians and Persians; and their voluntary dispersion over the whole East, when subjects of the Seleucids and the Romans. Living near two-thirds of a century, and many of them long afterward, in Mesopotamia, the cradle of their race; speaking the same language, and their children reared with those of the Chaldeans, Assyrians, Medes, and Persians, and receiving from them their names as the case of Danayal, who was called Bæltasatsar, proves, they necessarily adopted many of the doctrines of their conquerors. Their descendants, as Azra and Nahamaiah show us, hardly desired to leave Persia, when they were allowed to do so. They had a special jurisdiction and governors and judges taken from their own people; many of them held high office, and their children were educated with those of the highest nobles. Danayal was the friend and minister of the King, and the Chief of the College of the Magi at Babylon; if we may believe the book which bears his name, and trust to the incidents related in its highly figurative and imaginative style. Mordecai, too, occupied a high station, no less than that of Prime Minister, and Esther or Astar, his cousin, was the Monarch’s wife.”
“It is a significant fact, that while Christ spoke often of the Pharisees and Sadducees, He never once mentioned the Essenes, between whose doctrines and His there was so great a resemblance, and, in many points, so perfect an identity. Indeed, they are not named, nor even distinctly alluded to, anywhere in the New Testament. This faith, taught by John, and so nearly Christianity, could have been nothing but the doctrine of the Essenes; and there can be no doubt that John belonged to that sect. The place where he preached, his macerations and frugal diet, the doctrines he taught, all prove it conclusively. There was no other sect to which he could have belonged; certainly none so numerous as his, except the Essenes.
The forms and ceremonies of the Essenes were symbolical. They had, according to Philo the Jew, four degrees; the members being divided into two orders, the Practici and Therapeutici; the latter being the contemplative and medical brethren; and the former the active, practical, business men. They were Jews by birth; and had a greater affection for each other than the members of any other sect. Their brotherly love was intense. They fulfilled the Christian law, “Love one another.” They despised riches. No one was to be found among them, having more than another. The possessions of one were intermingled with those of the others; so that they all had but one patrimony, and were brethren.
Eusebius broadly admits “that the ancient Therapeutæ were Christians; and that their ancient writings were our Gospels and Epistles.” The Essenes were of the eclectic sect of philosophers, and held Plato in the highest esteem; they believed that true philosophy, the greatest and most salutary gift of God to mortals, was scattered, in various portions, through all the different sects; and that it was, consequently, the duty of every wise man to gather it from the several quarters where it lay dispersed, and to employ it, thus reunited, in destroying the dominion of impiety and vice.
The great festivals of the Solstices were observed in a distinguished manner by the Essenes; as would naturally be supposed, from the fact that they reverenced the Sun, not as a god, but as a symbol of light and fire; the fountain of which, the Orientals supposed God to be. The Word appears in all these creeds. It is the Ormuzd of Zoroaster, the Ainsoph of the Kabalah, the Nous of Platonism and Philonism, and the Sophia or Demiourgos of the Gnostics. And all these creeds, while admitting these different manifestations of the Supreme Being, held that His identity was immutable. The belief in dualism in some shape was universal. Those who held that everything emanated from God, aspired to God, and re-entered into God, believed that, among those emanations were two adverse Principles, of Light and Darkness, Good and Evil. …It resists the influences that would spiritualize it. That resisting power is Satan, the rebellious matter, matter that does not partake of God.”
“But one grand idea ever emerged and stood prominent and unchangeable over the weltering chaos of confusion. God is great, and good, and wise. Evil and pain and sorrow are temporary, and for wise and beneficent purposes. They must be consistent with God’s goodness, purity, and infinite perfection; and there must be a mode of explaining them, if we could but find it out; as, in all ways we will endeavor to do. Ultimately, good will prevail, and evil be overthrown. God alone can do this, and He will do it, by an emanation from himself, assuming the human form and redeeming the world.”
“Behold the object, the end, the result, of the great speculations and logomachies of antiquity; the ultimate annihilation of evil, and restoration of man to his first estate, by a Redeemer, a Masayah, a Christos, the incarnate Word, Reason, or Power of Deity. This Redeemer is the Word or Logos, the Ormuzd of Zoroaster, the Ainsoph of the Kabalah, the Nous of Platonism and Philonism; He that was in the beginning with God, and was God, and by whom everything was made. That he was looked for by all the people of the East is abundantly shown by the Gospel of John and the letters of Paul; wherein scarcely anything seemed necessary to be said in proof that such a Redeemer was to come; but all the energies of the writers are devoted to showing that Jesus was that Christos whom all the nations were expecting; the ‘Word,’ the Masayah, the Anointed or Consecrated One.”
“These old controversies have died away, and the old faiths have faded into oblivion. But Masonry still survives, vigorous and strong, as when philosophy was taught in the schools of Alexandria and under the portico; teaching the same old truths as the Essenes taught by the shores of the Dead Sea, and as John the Baptist preached in the desert; truths imperishable as the Deity, and undeniable as Light. Those truths were gathered by the Essenes from the doctrines of the Orient and the Occident, from the Zend-Avesta and the Vedas, from Plato and Pythagoras, from India, Persia, Phœnicia, and Syria, from Greece and Egypt, and from the Holy Books of the Jews. Hence we are called Knights of the East and West, because their doctrines came from both. And these doctrines, the wheat sifted from the chaff, the truth separated from error, Masonry has garnered up in her heart of hearts, and through the fires of persecution, and the storms of calamity, has brought them and delivered them unto us. That God is One, immutable, unchangeable, infinitely just and good; that Light will finally overcome darkness – good conquer evil, and truth be victor over error; – these, rejecting all the wild and useless speculations of the Zend-Avesta, the Kabalah, the Gnostics, and the Schools, are the religion and Philosophy of Masonry.”
“All antiquity solved the enigma of the existence of evil, by supposing the existence of a principle of evil, of demons, fallen angels, an Ahriman, a Typhon, a Siva, a Lok, or a Satan, that, first falling themselves, and plunged in misery and darkness, tempted man to his fall, and brought sin into the world. All believed in a future life, to be attained by purification and trials; in a state or successive states of reward and punishment; and in a Mediator or Redeemer, by whom the evil Principle was to be overcome, and the Supreme Deity reconciled to His creatures. The belief was general, that he was to be born of a virgin, and suffer a painful death. The Indians called him Chrishna; the Chinese, Kioun-tse; the Persians, Sosiosch; the Chaldeans, Dhouvanai; the Egyptians, Har-Oeri; Plato, Love; and the Scandinavians, Balder.”
“The first Masonic legislator whose memory is preserved to us by history, was Buddha, who, about a thousand years before the Christian era, reformed the religion of Manous. He called to the Priesthood all men, without distinction of caste, who felt themselves inspired by God to instruct men. Those who so associated themselves, formed a society of prophets under the name of Samaneans. They recognized the existence of a single uncreated God, in whose bosom everything grows, is developed and transformed. Man had fallen, but not by the tempting of the serpent. For, with the Phœnicians, the serpent was deemed to partake of the Divine Nature, and was sacred, as he was in Egypt. He was deemed to be immortal, unless slain by violence, becoming young again in his old age, by entering into and consuming himself. Hence the serpent in a circle, holding his tail in his mouth, was an emblem of eternity. With the head of a hawk he was of a divine nature, and a symbol of the sun. Hence one sect of the Gnostics took him for their good genius, and hence the brazen serpent reared by Moses in the desert, on which the Israelites looked and lived.”
“Jesus of Nazareth, the ‘Son of Man’ is the expounder of the new Law of Love. He calls to him the humble, the poor, the pariahs of the world. The first sentence that he pronounces blesses the world, and announces the new gospel: “Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted.” He pours the oil of consolation and peace upon every crushed and bleeding heart. Every sufferer is his proselyte. He shares their sorrows, and sympathizes with all their afflictions. He raises up the sinner and the Samaritan woman, and teaches them to hope for forgiveness. He pardons the woman taken in adultery. He selects his disciples not among the Pharisees or the philosophers, but among the low and humble, even of the fishermen of Galilee. He heals the sick and feeds the poor. He lives among the destitute and the friendless. “Suffer little children,” he said, “to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of Heaven! Blessed are the humble-minded, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven; the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth; the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy; the pure in heart, for they shall see God; the peace-maker, for they shall be called the children of God.
First be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift at the altar. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not away! Love your enemies; bless them that curse you; do good to them that hate you; and pray for them which despitefully use you and persecute you! All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye also unto them; for this is the Law and the Prophets! He that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another: as I have loved you, that ye also love one another: by this shall all know that ye are my disciples. Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friend.
The Gospel of Love he sealed with his life. The cruelty of the Jewish priesthood, the ignorant ferocity of the mob, and the Roman indifference to barbarian blood, nailed him to the cross, and he expired uttering blessings upon humanity. Dying thus, he bequeathed his teachings to man as an inestimable inheritance. Perverted and corrupted, they have served as a basis for many creeds, and been even made the warrant for intolerance and persecution. We here teach them in their purity. They are our Masonry; for to them good men of all creeds can subscribe.
That God is good and merciful, and loves and sympathizes with the creatures He has made; that His finger is visible in all the movements of the moral, intellectual, and material universe; that we are His children, the objects of His paternal care and regard; that all men are our brothers, whose wants we are to supply, their errors to pardon, their opinions to tolerate, their injuries to forgive; that man has an immortal soul, a free will, a right to freedom of thought and action; that all men are equal in God’s sight; that we best serve God by humility, meekness, gentleness, kindness, and the other virtues which the lowly can practice as well as the lofty; this is “the new Law,” the “Word,” for which the world had waited and pined so long; and every true Knight of the Rose ✠ will revere the memory of him who taught it, and look indulgently even on those who assign to him a character far above his own conceptions or belief, even to the extent of deeming him divine.”
“Originally the Mysteries were meant to be the beginning of a new life of reason and virtue. The initiated or esoteric companions were taught the doctrine of the One Supreme God, the theory of death and eternity, the hidden mysteries of Nature, the prospect of the ultimate restoration of the soul to that state of perfection from which it had fallen, its immortality, and the states of reward and punishment after death.”
“From the bosom of Egypt sprang a man of consummate wisdom, initiated in the secret knowledge of India, of Persia, and of Ethiopia, named Thoth or Phtha by his compatriots, Taut by the Phœnicians, Hermes Trismegistus by the Greeks, and Adris by the Rabbins. Nature seemed to have chosen him for her favorite, and to have lavished on him all the qualities necessary to enable him to study her and to know her thoroughly. The Deity had, so to say, infused into him the sciences and the arts, in order that he might instruct the whole world. He invented many things necessary for the uses of life, and gave them suitable names; he taught men how to write down their thoughts and arrange their speech; he instituted the ceremonies to be observed in the worship of each of the Gods; he observed the course of the stars; he invented music, the different bodily exercises, arithmetic, medicine, the art of working in metals, the lyre with three strings; he regulated the three tones of the voice, the sharp, taken from autumn, the grave from winter, and the middle from spring, there being then but three seasons. It was he who taught the Greeks the mode of interpreting terms and things, whence they gave him the name of Ἑρμης [Hermes], which signifies Interpreter. In Egypt he instituted hieroglyphics: he selected a certain number of persons whom he judged fitted to be the depositaries of his secrets, of such only as were capable of attaining the throne and the first offices in the Mysteries; he united them in a body, created them Priests of the Living God, instructed them in the sciences and arts, and explained to them the symbols by which they were veiled. Egypt, 1500 years before the time of Moses, revered in the Mysteries One Supreme God, called the Only Uncreated. Under Him it paid homage to seven principal deities.
It is to Hermes, who lived at that period, that we must attribute the concealment or veiling [velation] of the Indian worship, which Moses unveiled or revealed, changing nothing of the laws of Hermes, except the plurality of his mystic Gods. The Egyptian Priests related that Hermes, dying, said: “Hitherto I have lived an exile from my true country: now I return thither. Do not weep for me: I return to that celestial country whither each goes in his turn. There is God. This life is but a death.” This is precisely the creed of the old Buddhists of Samaneans, who believed that from time to time God sent Buddhas on Earth, to reform men, to wean them from their vices, and lead them back into the paths of virtue.”
“The Druidical ceremonies undoubtedly came from India; and the Druids were originally Buddhists. The word Druid, like the word Magi, signifies wise or learned men; and they were at once philosophers, magistrates, and divines. There was a surprising uniformity in the temples, priests, doctrines, and worship of the Persian Magi and British Druids. The Gods of Britain were the same as the Cabiri of Samothrace. Osiris and Isis appeared in their Mysteries, under the names of Hu and Ceridwen; and like those of the primitive Persians, their temples were enclosures of huge unhewn stones, some of which still remain, and are regarded by the common people with fear and veneration. They were generally either circular or oval. Some were in the shape of a circle to which a vast serpent was attached. The circle was an Eastern symbol of the Universe, governed by an Omnipotent Deity whose center is everywhere, and his circumference nowhere: and the egg was a universal symbol of the world. The Gothic Mysteries were carried Northward from the East, by Odin; who, being a great warrior, modeled and varied them to suit his purposes and the genius of his people. He placed over their celebration twelve Hierophants, who were alike Priests, Counsellors of State, and Judges from whose decision there was no appeal.”
“Joseph was undoubtedly initiated. After he had interpreted Pharaoh’s dream, that Monarch made him his Prime Minister, let him ride in his second chariot, while they proclaimed before him, Abrech! and set him over the land of Egypt. In addition to this, the King gave him a new name, Tsapanat-Paänakh, and married him to Asanat, daughter of Potai Parang, a Priest of An or Hieropolis, where was the temple of Athom-Re, the great God of Egypt; thus completely naturalizing him. He could not have contracted this marriage, nor have exercised that high dignity, without being first initiated in the Mysteries. When his brethren came to Egypt the second time, the Egyptians of his court could not eat with them, as that would have been abomination, though they ate with Joseph; who was therefore regarded not as a foreigner, but as one of themselves: and when he sent and brought his brethren back, and charged them with taking his cup, he said, “Know ye not that a man like me practices divination?” Thus assuming the Egyptian of high rank initiated into the Mysteries, and as such, conversant with the occult sciences.
So also must Moses have been initiated: for he was not only brought up in the court of the King, as the adopted son of the King’s daughter, until he was forty years of age; but he was instructed in all the learning of the Egyptians, and married afterward the daughter of Yethru, a Priest of An likewise. Strabo and Diodorus both assert that he was himself a Priest of Heliopolis. Before he went into the desert, there were intimate relations between him and the priesthood; and he had successfully commanded, Josephus informs us, an army sent by the king against the Ethiopians. Simplicius asserts that Moses received from the Egyptians, in the Mysteries, the doctrines which he taught to the Hebrews: and Clement of Alexandria and Philo say that he was a theologian and prophet, and interpreter of the Sacred Laws. Manetho, cited by Josephus, says he was a Priest of Heliopolis, and that his true and original (Egyptian) name was Asersaph or Osarsiph. And in the institution of the Hebrew priesthood, in the powers and privileges, as well as the immunities and sanctity which he conferred upon them, he closely imitated the Egyptian institutions; making public the worship of that Deity whom the Egyptian initiates worshipped in private; and strenuously endeavoring to keep the people from relapsing into their old mixture of Chaldaic and Egyptian superstition and idol-worship, as they were ever ready and inclined to do; even Aharun, upon their first clamorous discontent, restoring the worship of Apis; as an image of which Egyptian God he made the golden calf.”
“The Egyptian Priests taught in their great Mysteries, that there was one God, supreme and unapproachable, who had conceived the universe by His Intelligence, before He created it by His Power and Will. They were no materialists, nor pantheists; but taught that matter was not eternal or co-existent with the great First Cause, but created by Him. The early Christians, taught by the founder of their religion, but in greater perfection, those primitive truths that from the Egyptians had passed to the Jews, and been preserved among the latter by the Essenes, received also the institution of the Mysteries; adopting as their object the building of the symbolic Temple, preserving the old scriptures of the Jews as their sacred book, and as the fundamental law, which furnished the new veil of initiation with the Hebraic words and formulas, that, corrupted and disfigured by time and ignorance, appear in many of our degrees.”
“Everywhere, and in all their forms, the Mysteries were funereal; and celebrated the mystical death and restoration to life of some divine or heroic personage: and the details of the legend and the mode of the death varied in the different countries where the Mysteries were practiced. Nothing of this recital (story of Isis, Osiris and Horus) was historical; but the whole was an allegory or sacred fable, containing a meaning known only to those who were initiated into the Mysteries. All the incidents were astronomical, with a meaning still deeper lying behind that explanation, and so hidden by a double veil. The Mysteries strove to recall man to his divine origin, and point out to him the means of returning thither. The great science acquired in the Mysteries was knowledge of man’s self, of the nobleness of his origin, the grandeur of his destiny, and his superiority over the animals, which can never acquire this knowledge, and whom he resembles so long as he does not reflect upon his existence and sound the depths of his own nature.
By doing and suffering, by virtue and piety and good deeds, the soul was enabled at length to free itself from the body, and ascend along the path of the Milky Way, by the gate of Capricorn and by the seven spheres, to the place whence by many gradations and successive lapses and enthrallments it had descended. And thus the theory of the spheres, and of the signs and intelligences which preside there, and the whole system of astronomy, were connected with that of the soul and its destiny; and so were taught in the Mysteries, in which were developed the great principles of physics and metaphysics as to the origin of the soul, its condition here below, its destination, and its future fate.”
From Albert Pike’s Morals and Dogma;
Secret teachings prominent among Rosicrucian apologists was John Heydon, who inscribes himself “A servant of God, and a secretary of nature.” In his curious work, The Rosie Cross Uncovered, he gives an enigmatic but valuable description of the Fraternity of R.C. in the following language: “Now there are a kind of men, as they themselves report, named Rosie Crucians, a divine fraternity that inhabit the suburbs of heaven, and these are the officers of the Generalissimo of the World, that are as the eyes and ears of the great King, seeing and hearing all things: they say these Rosie Crucians are seraphically illuminated, as Moses was, according to this order of the elements, earth refined to water, water to air, air to fire.”
…..He further declares that these mysterious Brethren possessed polymorphous powers, appearing in any desired form at will. In the preface of the same work, he enumerates the strange powers of the Rosicrucian adepts: “I shall here tell you what Rosie Crucians are, and that Moses was their Father, and he was Θεοῦ παῖς; some say they were of the order of Elias, some say the disciples of Ezekiel; (…) For it should seem Rosie Crucians were not only initiated into the Mosaical Theory, but have arrived also to the power of working miracles, as Moses, Elias, Ezekiel, and the succeeding Prophets did, as being transported where they please, as Habakkuk was from Jewry to Babylon.”
“The Fraternity of R.C. is an august and sovereign body, arbitrarily manipulating the symbols of alchemy, Qabbalism, astrology, and magic to the attainment of its own peculiar purposes, but entirely independent of the cults whose terminology it employs. One of three major objects of the Fraternity is:
The abolition of all monarchical forms of government and the substitution therefore of the ruler ship of the philosophic Elect. The present democracies are the direct outgrowth of Rosicrucian efforts to liberate the maws from the domination of despotism. In the early part of the eighteenth century the Rosicrucian’s turned their attention to the new American Colonies, then forming the nucleus of a great nation in the New World. The American War of Independence represents their first great political experiment and resulted in the establishment of a national government founded upon the fundamental principles of divine and natural law. As an imperishable reminder of their sub rosa activities, the Rosicrucian’s left the Great Seal of the United States. The Rosicrucian’s were also the instigators of the French Revolution, but in this instance were not wholly successful, owing to the fact that the fanaticism of the revolutionists could not be controlled and the Reign of Terror ensued.
The Rosicrucian’s declared that the material arts and sciences were but shadows of the divine wisdom, and that only by penetrating the innermost recesses of Nature could man attain to reality and understanding. Though calling themselves Christians, the Rosicrucian’s were evidently Platonists and also profoundly versed in the deepest mysteries of early Hebrew and Hindu theology. There is undeniable evidence that the Rosicrucian’s desired to reestablish the institutions of the ancient Mysteries as the foremost method of instructing humanity in the secret and eternal doctrine. Indeed, being in all probability the perpetuators of the ancient Mysteries, the Rosicrucian’s were able to maintain themselves against the obliterating forces of dogmatic Christianity only by absolute secrecy and the subtlety of their subterfuges. They so carefully guarded and preserved the Supreme Mystery – the identity and interrelationship of the Three Selves – that no one to whom they did not of their own accord reveal themselves has ever secured any satisfactory information regarding either the existence or the purpose of the Order. The Fraternity of R.C., through its outer organization, is gradually creating an environment or body in which the Illustrious Brother C.R.C. may ultimately incarnate and consummate for humanity the vast spiritual and material labors of the Fraternity.”
“The perfect Rosicrucian medicine was for the healing of nations, races, and individuals. In an early unpublished manuscript, an unknown philosopher declares alchemy, Qabbalism, astrology, and magic to have been divine sciences originally, but that through perversion they had become false doctrines, leading seekers after wisdom ever farther from their goal. The same author gives a valuable key to esoteric Rosicrucianism by dividing the path of spiritual attainment into three steps, or schools, which he calls mountains. The first and lowest of these mountains is Mount Sophia; the second, Mount Qabbalah; and the third, Mount Magia. These three mountains are sequential stages of spiritual growth. The unknown author then states:
“By philosophy is to be understood the knowledge of the workings of Nature, by which knowledge man learns to climb to those higher mountains above the limitations of sense. By Qabbalism is to be understood the language of the angelic or celestial beings, and he who masters it is able to converse with the messengers of God. On the highest of the mountains is the School of Magia (Divine Magic, which is the language of God) wherein man is taught the true nature of all things by God Himself.”
And that, my friends – is Gnosis.

“There were three who walked with the Lord: Mary his mother, and his mother’s sister, and Miriam Magdalene, known as his companion. For him, Miriam is a sister, a mother, and a wife.” – From the Gospel of Philip – who was an original Apostle
“On this account I have said unto you aforetime: Where I shall be, there will be also my twelve ministers. But Mary Magdalene and John, the virgin, will tower over all my disciples and over all men who shall receive the mysteries in the Ineffable. And they will be on my right and on my left. And I am they, and they are I.” – Spoken by Jesus in the Pistis Sophia
I first contemplated about Jesus and Mary’s relationship from the standpoint of whether or not Mary was an important follower of Jesus – as important as we regard the men who were the Apostles. The first thing going in favor of this is the fact that our family for thousands of years had revered the feminine power of God and always shown that they believed in equality of the sexes. Probably the best sources to consider the relationship of Jesus and Mary from are the ancient texts which record actual conversations between Mary, Jesus, and the other disciples. The author of Forbidden Faith notes how in these texts, Mary Magdalene is presented as a disciple at least equal to the male disciples. In the text the Dialogue of the Savior she is referred to as, ‘The woman who knew the All’. In the text Pistis Sophia, Jesus tells her, “Thou are she whose heart is more directed to the Kingdom of Heaven than all thy brothers.” Phillip was an original apostle, yet his book is not in the Canonical Bible. Many believe one reason for its exclusion is this verse; “The companion of the (Savior is) Mary Magdalene. (But Christ loved) her more than (all) the disciples (and used to) kiss her (often) on her (mouth). The rest of (the disciples were offended) by it (and expressed disapproval.) They said to him, “Why do you love her more than all of us?” The Savior answered and said to them, “Why do I not love you like her?”
The words in parenthesis represent actual holes in the ancient texts, but the above translation seems to be accepted among scholars. Many people probably still have the impression that Mary was the woman at the well who had five husbands. The Catholic Church taught this until fairly recently. The Catholics have back-tracked on this assertion and announced they had changed their understanding of her. The author of Forbidden Faith concluded his comments regarding her by saying that there is no stain on her character, she has a status at least equal to that of the male apostles, “Her spiritual illumination surpasses theirs, she is Jesus’s ‘companion’ and possibly his wife.” He then goes on to comment that Elaine Pagels in her book The Gnostic Gospels suggests that Mary Magdalene’s demotion, “reflects the reduced status of women in the early Christian church. At first regarded as equals to men, they were gradually reduced to being second class citizens, forbidden to have authority over men or to serve as clergy. The demotion of Mary Magdalene mirrors this shift.”
The Gospel of the Beloved Companion, who, according to the Gnostics, was Mary Magdalene, is a first century Greek text. The following comes from that text:
“On the third day of the week, there was the marriage feast in the house of Shimon (Simon) near Hyrcana (Cana) in the land of Yehuda (Judah). At the feast were Miryam the mother of Yeshua, and his brothers Yakov (Jacob) and Yosef (Joseph) and his sister Miryam Salome. Also in that place were Martha of Bethany, the sister of Miryam called the Beloved Companion and Eleazar (Lazarus) her brother, whom Yeshua would restore to life. Levi whom some have called Mattithyahu was also there, along with Toma called the twin, who was a friend of the companion. All of the other disciples had also been invited. When the wine would soon give out, his mother came to him and said, ‘Soon there will be no more wine.’ Yeshua said to her, ‘Lady, what does that have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.’ His mother said to the servants, ‘Whatever he says to you, do it.’ Now there were six water pots of stone set there for the purposes of purification. Yeshua said to them. ‘Fill the water pots with what little wine you have, to each one a measure.’ So they did as he told them. Then Yeshua stood and raised his right hand and blessed the pots. And therefore he said to them, ‘Now draw what you need, that all the guests may drink their fill.’ He told them also to take some of the wine they had drawn to the steward of the feast. So they took the wine and gave it to the guests and all that were there drank their fill and were satisfied.
When the steward of the feast tasted the wine and not knowing where it came from, he came to the bride and bridegroom and said to Yeshua, ‘Everyone serves the good wine first, and when the guests have drunk freely, then that which is worse. You have kept the good wine until now!’ The disciples wondered at what he had done, but he said to them, ‘Why do you marvel thus? Have I not told you that I am in the Spirit as the Spirit is in me? It is man who sees only poverty, for he sees with the eyes of the master of the world. But where man sees poverty, the Spirit sees only abundance. What the Spirit sees I see, and what I see the Spirit sees. And what the Spirit sees is.’ This beginning of his signs Yeshua did at his wedding feast at a place near Hyrcana in the land of Yehuda and revealed his glory and his disciples believed in him.”
19: 35: And they said ‘Is this not Yeshua the son of Yosef of the tribe of Judah and Miryam his wife, whose father and mother we know?’
35:7 The companion whom Yeshua loved was at the table, leaning against Yeshuas breast. Shimon Kefa (Simon Peter) therefore beckoned to her and said to her, ‘Tell us who it is of whom he speaks.’ She, leaning back as she was on Yeshua’s breast, asked him. ‘Rabbouni, who is it?’
When you think about it, would another man be leaning on Jesus’ chest? That wouldn’t be common today. Do you think it was common in Jesus day? It’s only because we consider Jesus a God rather than a man that we can’t conceive of him being human in all aspects.
35:16-17 The disciples said to Yeshua, When will you depart from us? Who is to be our leader? And Yeshua said to them ‘I will not leave you orphans. When a father goes away, it is the Mother who tends the children.’ ‘Only from the truth I tell you, there is one amongst you who has had my commandments and keeps them. That one is the one who loves me and that one who loves me is also loved by me, and by the Spirit. To that one will I reveal myself so that you will know that what I have said to you is true, that I am in the Spirit as the Spirit is in me. And that same one will the Spirit complete in all ways, so that by this sign, you may know my words are true and that my testimony is of the Spirit, the one who sent me.’
43:5 And Levi answered and said to Shimon Kefa, ‘Shimon Kefa, (Simon Peter) you have always been hot tempered. Now I see you contending against this woman like the adversaries. But if the Rabbi made her worthy, who are you indeed to reject her? Surely as his companion, Yeshua knew her better than all others. That is why he loved her more than us.’
44:1 These are the words and deeds of Yeshua the Nazorean, the son of humanity. There are also many other things which Yeshua did, which if they would all be recorded, then even the world itself would not have room for the books that would be written. I have testified and recorded all that I have seen and heard in the light and truth of his love and the grace and power of his word. Only from the truth I tell you, those amongst you who understand and believe his words will not know death. I am Miryam, called the Migdalah, the Beloved Companion
The author of World Gnosis believes Mary was the successor of Jesus in the early church. He wrote;
“Mary’s exalted status as Jesus future successor is also disclosed in a passage of the Pistis Sophia wherein Jesus refers to her as the one who is the inheritor of the Light, meaning it was she who inherited the true Gnostic wisdom or Light from the Master. In the Nag Hammadi texts Mary is repeatedly revealed to be the closest disciple to Jesus and the one who received secret teachings from the Christ that the others did not.”
In ancient Gnostic texts, Mary Magdalene makes the statement that she is afraid of Peter because he “hates her race”, i.e. women. The author of World Gnosis discusses this. He says that the events of this contentious gathering were prophetic and destined to become a mirror to the future. He sees that the seeds of a future split among Jesus Apostles was evident at that time and “Eventually two divergent churches began to take shape. Mary and John the Apostle would found the Gnostic Christian or Johannite Church and Peter would found what would become the Catholic Church.” He states that Mary’s church would be based upon the Left Hand Path that exalted the female principle while Peter’s church was founded upon male God tradition of the right hand path, “that denigrated the female principle.” The author notes that the name Peter and the Latin Pater, or Father, “is instructive as it reveals Peter to be the emissary of patriarchy and the right hand path while the name Mary with its prefix of Ma, or Mother reveals Mary to be the embodiment of matriarchy and the Left Hand Path.”
At the very beginning of my research, I found a magnificently crafted brass repousee of the Last Supper at a swap meet. It is created by sculpting it from the reverse side. The artistry to be able to create something so magnificent cannot be overstated. This piece has high relief, meaning it has an incredible depth to it. One day I was contemplating whether Mary Magdalene had been an apostle of Jesus. I stood before this beautiful image, just staring at it. Out of the blue, the words ‘look at the hands, look at the hands’ went through my mind. So, I looked at the hands – and immediately noticed that they were all very prominent, like the artist was trying to attract attention to them. When I looked at the apostle at Jesus left side, I noticed that she had her hands crossed in front of her breasts! My question had been answered! I believe it was created in the early 1900’s in Spain, as the artist had a Spanish name. Included in the surrounding decor are four Templar crosses. So the artist was one of ‘us’.
Since then, I have come across a picture of the Last Supper, probably from the 1930’s. There are twelve people seated at the table with Jesus making the 13th. One of the apostles has long blond hair and she again has her arms raised to her breasts, not crossed like the other, but in essence almost pointing to them. Jesus is the one who gave Mary the epithet ‘Magdalene’, which means watchtower or stronghold. This verse from the Old Testament prophet, Micah is speaking of her;
“In that day, declares the Lord, I will gather the lame. I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. I will make the lame a remnant, those driven away a strong nation. The Lord will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and forever. As for you, O Watchtower of the flock, O stronghold of the Daughter of Zion, the former dominion will be restored to you; “Kingship will come to the Daughter of Jerusalem.”
In Bloodline of the Holy Grail Laurence Gardner wrote that the Rosicrucian’s had an ancient history dating back to the Egyptian Mystery school of Pharaoh Tuthmosis II circa 1468-1436 BC. He describes the teachings descent to the philosophers Pythagoras and Plato, through the Essenes and Egyptian Therepeutae. He mentions that they were allied with the Samaritan Magi who were founded in 44 BC by Menahem, a “Diaspora Essene and the grandfather of Mary Magdalene.” He relates that Menahem’s descent was from the Hasmoneans, the family of Judas Maccabaeus who was revered in the Arthurian Grail story of Gawain. Isn’t it amazing how all these seemingly disparate people and places have such an inter-woven history?
The following is from the forward of the book The Woman with the Alabaster Jar by Margaret Starbird. By Rev. Terrance A. Sweeney, Ph.D. – author of A Church Divided and What God Hath Joined:
“There is nothing in Scripture that proves that Jesus was married, nor is there anything in the Bible that says that Jesus was unmarried, nor that he made a promise or vow not to marry. The Jewish scholar Ben-Chorin presents a chain of indirect proofs’ to support his belief that Jesus was married. In the time Jesus walked the Earth, Judaism regarded marriage as a fulfillment of God’s command to ‘be fruitful and multiply.’ …Ben-Chorin argues that it would have been quite likely that Jesus’ parents, as was the custom, would have sought out a suitable bride for him, and that Jesus, like every young man, especially those who studied the Torah, would have married. Moreover, if Jesus had not been married, he most certainly would have been reproached for this omission by those Pharisees who opposed him. And Saint Paul, in presenting reasons for supporting the value of celibacy, would undoubtedly have cited Jesus’ own life, had Jesus been celibate. But Saint Paul did not.”
The author goes on to say that Ben-Chorin concludes that Jesus was married. The author then poses the question, if Jesus was married why is there no specific mention of this or of his wife’s name in scripture? He says that Margaret Starbirds answer to this is that the physical threat to his spouse’s life would have been reason enough to exclude her name from all written records.
In Margaret’s book, she refers to the book Holy Blood, Holy Grail, which was the first book in recent history to claim that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married. Margaret was a Catholic and is a devout Christian, and reading the book incensed her so much that she decided to write a book to refute it. Margaret remarks that the book had touched on subjects that were of special interest and expertise to her such as religion, medieval civilization, art, literature and symbolism. Margaret had taught Bible study and religious education for years. She believed that debunking the ‘heresy’ of Jesus marriage would be a simple matter.
In the book Holy Blood Holy Grail, the authors mention paintings that were made by artists “in collusion with the Grail heresy.” In their paintings, the artists would place secret symbolism related to the Grail. Margaret examined symbols in the works mentioned and cross-referenced them with watermarks of the Albigensians (Cathars) of Southern France. Margaret says that she was disconcerted to discover that these paintings contained, “obvious references in support of the Grail heresy.” Margaret relates that her research drew her, “deep into European history, heraldry, the rituals of Freemasonry, medieval art, symbolism, psychology, mythology, religion, and the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures.” She states that everywhere she looked she found evidence of the Divine feminine that had been lost and denied in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Margaret also noted various attempts to restore the Bride to her once-cherished status.
Margaret wrote that the more deeply involved she became with the material the more obvious it became that there was real substance in the theories set forth in Holy Blood, Holy Grail. She found that she had been won over to the central tenets of the Grail heresy, “the very theory I had originally set out to discredit.” Margaret does not claim to have proof of their marriage, but states that she can, “verify that these are tenets of a heresy widely believed in the Middle Ages; that fossils of the heresy can be found in numerous works of art and literature; that it was vehemently attacked by the hierarchy of the established Church of Rome; and that it survived in spite of relentless persecution.”
Margaret says that medieval poets writing in the twelfth century when the Grail legends first surfaced, mention a ‘Grail Family’. She notes that a connection is sometimes drawn by Grail scholars between the word sangraal and gradales, “a word that seems to have meant ‘cup,’ ‘platter,’ or ‘basin’ in the Provencal language.” Margaret notes that if one breaks the word sangraal after the g, “the result is sang raal, which in Old French means ‘blood royal.” She also notes the provocative meaning of this second derivation. One can now see a new meaning to the Grail legend. According to Margaret, “Instead of a cup or chalice, the story now states that Mary Magdalene brought the ‘blood royal’ to the Mediterranean coast of France.”
Margaret notes that both of the New Testament genealogies of Jesus show that he was descended from King David and that the messianic promises to Israel are all specifically tied to the royal blood of Judaic princes descended from the root of Jesse, the father of King David. Jacob-Israel told his son Judah that his descendants – the line of King David, would never fail to have a leader over Israel. As Margaret wrote; “The wife of Jesus, if she bore him a child, would have been quite literally the bearer of the Sangraal, the royal bloodline of Israel.”
Margaret notes how in medieval and Renaissance paintings, it is invariably the Magdalene at the foot of the cross with Mary, the mother of Jesus. She notes that, “These paintings recall for us the mythologies of several pagan sun/fertility gods (Osiris, Dumuzi, and Adonis) who were slain and resurrected. In each case, the bereaved widow (Isis, Inanna, and Aphrodite) poured out her grief and desolation over the corpse of her beloved, bitterly lamenting his death.” I don’t know if Margaret knows of the connection with Gnosticism and pagan Mystery religions and their tie-in with Christianity or not – but I suspect she does. More importantly, Margaret sees the beauty in the pagan mythologies that most people do not see.
Margaret relates that there is a very old tradition identifying Mary of Bethany with Mary Magdalene and in medieval art she is identified with the Sister-Bride of the ancient mythologies. Margaret tells us that the Bride, who was the moon or earth goddess of antiquity, was not only the spouse of the sun god, but was also “the intimate friend and partner of her Bridegroom deity, his mirror image or ‘other half,’ a feminine alter ego or ‘twin sister’.” As Margaret acknowledges “The archetypal Bridegroom just could not be whole without her! The relationship of these two was much more than a sexual union; it was a deep spiritual intimacy and ‘kinship’ summed up in the word sister. The Sacred Marriage of the Bridegroom with the Sister-Bride was not limited to a physical passion; it was a marriage of deepest spiritual and emotional ecstasy as well.”
Margaret sees that in the Bible, Mary’s anointing of Jesus represents the tradition of the royal Bridegroom who is to be slain. She understands that the reason Mary cried while anointing Jesus was that she knew that she was preparing him for his ritual death. Margaret notes that, “It is clear from Jesus’ response to the anointing that he understood and accepted it, and that he also accepted his mythic role as the sacrificed Bridegroom/King.”
What I like about Margaret’s work is that she understands the sublime truths that underlie the ancient Wisdom religions and beautifully ties them in with Jesus’ and Mary Magdalene’s lives.
From the Bible’s book of Isaiah, the fifty-third chapter:
“We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away.
And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken. He was assigned a grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.”
Who do you think the prophet Isaiah is speaking of here? No doubt he’s speaking of Jesus. Do you see that the Bible tells us he had descendants and offspring?
The author of The Magdalene Legacy says that the biblical almahs of the New Testament, which included Jesus’ mother Mary and Mary Magdalene, were the equivalent of conventual nuns. From the age of seven they were raised and educated for the prospect of dynastic marriage. He calls them, “high-bred priestesses who were assigned to various tribal Orders such as those of Dan, Asher and Manasseh and were attached to the ascetic Therapeutae community at Qumran.” I don’t think the author realizes there were Essenes at Mount Carmel too. The author notes that, “sexual activity was not a leisure or pleasure pursuit, nor even particularly related to affection.” Laurence Gardner also says they were under strict guidelines as to procreation.
I have learned and presented to you, that Jesus was married when he was eighteen and that his first wife died when he was twenty-five. It was the custom of our people that the groom’s father would choose a wife for him and he would be married at eighteen. This is not something that would have gone unheeded. Also, a man couldn’t be a rabbi at that time unless he was married. Jesus was a scion of the Grail Family lineage, of the line of David, which the Bible tells us will be re-formed in the ‘last days’. The continuance of his bloodline was important – and it did happen.
Jesus brother’s James and Jude, and his cousin Cleopas were martyred not long after Jesus was crucified. In fact, the Romans and the Jews wanted every member of the royal line of David dead. If for no other reason than safety and to facilitate the endurance of the line, any child of Jesus and Mary Magdalene would have to be hidden.
Margaret Starbird, in her book The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, discusses the use of the word vine as a metaphor for the chosen people of God. She cites; “A vine thou didst bring out of Egypt.” (Psalms 89:9) “The vineyard of the Lord of Hosts is the House of Israel and the men of Judah are his cherished plant.” (Isaiah 5:7) Several passages refer to the vine as feminine: ‘Thy wife is like a fruitful vine.’ (Psalms 128) ‘Your mother is like a vine planted by the water, fruitful and branchy…but she was torn up…and now she is planted in the desert…she is now without a royal branch, a ruler’s scepter.’ (Ezekiel 19:10-14)
She wrote that the transplanted royal vine is understood by biblical scholars to refer to the royal Davidic line of Judah. She notes that in the New Testament book of Mark, Jesus tells the parable of the caretakers of the vineyard (Israel) who beat the servants of their master when they came to inspect the condition of the vines and then killed the master’s son. She wrote; “No one who knew Jesus of Nazareth and who ‘had ears to hear’ was in any doubt as to the identity of that faithful son.” Jesus was the legitimate heir to the vineyard of Judah. Margaret says that, “The transplanting of the Davidic vine would have come as no surprise to the Zealot fundamentalist friends of Jesus. They knew it had been prophesied. (Ezekiel 17) It had happened before, when the people of Israel were taken as slaves to Babylon. But it could also happen again.” Margaret makes the logical comment that; “In light of the danger to the vine of Judah, the royal blood-line, it is likely that the friends of Jesus took strong and perhaps desperate measures to protect the family of Jesus. It would have been their top priority.”
At one point in my research, my sister asked me if we had black ancestors. She said this because we have dark curly hair! No doubt she probably thought that at some point in our ancestors sojourn in the southern states of the U.S., when some of them were slaveholders, there was inter-racial mixing. I told her that I believed that we did have some black dna. I didn’t elaborate that I believed that connection was from inter-marrying with Noah’s son Ham’s family, or that our ancestress Mary Magdalene was said to have been part Ethiopian! In the book The God Kings of Outremer, the author says that John the Baptist was married to a woman named Anya who was the daughter of King Aretas of Ethiopia. Through his wife, John would have been heir apparent to the throne of the Sabean/Nabataean Empire, which was a mixed Semitic/Hamitic (Arab/African) race, connected to the Biblical land of Sheba. Nabataeans was the Arabic name for Aramaeans. Jesus and his family spoke the Aramaean language which was the ‘language of the angels’. According to Robert Morcot, “The priestess daughters of the nobles of Egypt and Ethiopia under the black Pharaohs were called Chantresses to the Lord of Miam, or Mi-ri-am.”
The author goes on to point out that in 31 B.C., the Nabataeans lost a large part of their kingdom to the Romans who gave Herod the Great control over it. In order to regain control of their land, king Aretas married one of his daughters to Herod Antipas, Herod the Great’s son – with the understanding that any son of theirs was to become Tetrarch (ruler) after Herod Antipas, through which the land would come back into the Nabataean kingdom. Later on, Herod Antipas was divorcing King Aretas daughter so he could marry his deceased brothers’ widow. King Aretas’ daughter found out about this and fled to her father in Petra. King Aretas mounted a military campaign to overthrow Herod Antipas.
John the Baptist was furious, not so much because of Herod’s wishing to marry his brother’s widow, but because Herod’s current wife was John’s sister-in-law. To the books author, the story in the Bible given for the reason of John’s beheading always seemed far-fetched. He believes John was held hostage during the battle and that in revenge, Herod Antipas had him beheaded. This all brings us back though, to Mary Magdalene’s having been part Ethiopian.
Some of you may be familiar with the Black Madonna’s portrayed in statuary and art in the European cathedrals built by the Knights Templars. From what I understand, the Black Madonna’s are not representative of the Virgin Mary at all – but of Mary Magdalene. I will add, though, that the Black Madonna’s are also said to represent the destructive power of the Goddess. That author goes on to relate that the Valois dynasty of France claimed descent from Jesus and Mary Magdalene. One of their descendants – a queen, bore a black child. The Queen was said to have had a black dwarf as a servant. The Queen was accused of having sexual relations with him – but she always protested her innocence. Pictures of the Valois dynasty do show a propensity to curly hair. This can be seen in many pictures of European royalty. Queen Elizabeth the 1st is a good example. The author of the book The God Kings of Outremer relates a story of the British King Edward III who was called ‘The Black Prince’. He cites “both Froissart and the French” who called him ‘dark visaged’.
Laurence Gardner, in his book Bloodline of the Holy Grail, wrote that there are stories written about Mary Magdalene dating well beyond the 5th century. He says that King Louis the XI of France was insistent on Mary’s dynastic position in the royal lineage of France. He relates that there is a book called Saint Mary Magdalene by the Dominican friar Pere Lacordaire published after the French Revolution that, “is a particularly informative work, as is La Legende de Sainte Marie Madeleine by Jacobus de Voraigne, Archbishop of Genoa.” He wrote that “Both de Voraigne and Maar say that Mary’s mother Eucharia was related to the Hasmonean royal house of Israel, descended from King Saul, a Benjamite.”
In The Sign of the Dove by Elizabeth van Buren, she wrote; “Caesar Baronius, librarian of the Vatican in 1596, wrote in his ‘Annales Ecclesiastici’ of his discovery in the Vatican Library of a most ancient manuscript which told of the voyage of a company of our Lord’s friends, who traveled in an old boat which had been abandoned by its master and was without oars or sails. Baronius dated the arrival of this boat in France as 35 A.D….The coming of Lazarus and his sisters to the West was not only to convert the people to Christianity, but to perpetuate the old Mystery religion. Lazarus, as John, was the head of the secret church of Christ, which possessed knowledge that was only for initiates. It was the same knowledge that had been cherished by those such as the Celts, whom the exoteric Church was to condemn as pagans in later times.”
When the author says “Lazarus, as John”, she is referring to John as a dynastic title of the leader of the Johannites. The author says that on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea outside Marseilles at Les Saintes Marie de la Mere, there is a chapel dedicated to Mary Magdalene. Within this chapel are paintings of her arrival from Palestine in a small rudderless boat. According to local legends, soon after the Crucifixion and Resurrection, Mary Magdalene and her family were expelled from the Holy Land, set adrift on the Mediterranean Sea, and made their way to this region – particularly the area around Southern France and Northern Spain. At that time in history, there were already Jews living in the area. There was a Jewish city called Glanum Levi whose ruins can be found in Provence.
The author notes how in the midst of the cosmopolitan confluence of cultures in that area, there must have been an exchange of philosophical and religious ideas. She notes that, “It is very possible that during this period many spiritual and symbolic links were discovered between these diverse peoples and their traditional belief systems that stretched back to the temples of Egypt. She notes that before her arrival in Les Saintes Marie Sur Les Mere, France was riddled with Isis cults. She says that the name ‘Paris’ etymologically can be linked to the pre-Celtic ParIsis, the ‘grove of Isis’. She states; “Clearly this region was fertile ground for Mary Magdalene’s mission.”
The legends reveal that following her arrival in France, Mary was said to have traveled the land preaching the authentic Gnostic gospel of Jesus which had been transmitted to her during his time on Earth and in mystic visions after his return to the more subtle dimensions of light. She relates that French religious literature from the Middle Ages is filled with legends and stories of the life of Mary Magdalene from that period until her death. “Tales abound of her miraculous healings, her performance of the ritual of baptism, her aid in fertility and childbearing and even her ability to raise the dead. There are even reports of a secret tradition of the healing arts that exists today in France and traces its roots back to Mary Magdalene.”
Later in life, Mary was said to have withdrawn to a cave in Ste. Baum where she spent the remainder of her days in prayer and seclusion. The author reveals that she is believed to have been buried at Ste. Maximin where her remains were watched over by Cassianite monks from the fifth century until the Saracen invasion. In a 1058 papal bull, Pope Stephen acknowledged the existence of her relics in the church of Vezelay.
The author noticed that when one looks at the history of the area one finds evidence that with Mary’s arrival there came a surge of spiritual awareness, a code of ethics and respect for feminine values. “The alchemists began their flurry of Cathedral building to preserve the secret metaphysical teachings passed down to them from ancient Egypt.” She also notes that the Crusades and the ‘Back to Jerusalem movement’ began in this area. The mystical Kabbalistic texts the Bahir and Zohar emerged from this region, “bringing to the Jewish people knowledge of the Shekinah, or ‘indwelling presence’ and ‘feminine potency of God’.” She notes that the cults of the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene and Black Madonna, who symbolically represented the three aspects of Isis in her role as Universal Goddess arose there and spread throughout Europe.
It was also from this area that the troubadours and poets such as Wolfram von Eschenbach, Robert de Boron and others sang their songs of devotion to the feminine principle and wrote their fables of the Holy Grail. And it was there in the mountains and valleys of Provence and Languedoc, “that the Cathars, as carriers of the Gnostic transmission of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, rebelled against what they considered to be the excesses of the priestly hierarchy, renounced all worldly possessions and fully committed themselves to the path of spirit.”
The following are from The Gospel of the Sophia of Ain Sof in Tau Malachi’s book St. Mary Magdalene the Gnostic Tradition of the Holy Bride. The quotes are not continuous.
The companions said to Mary, ‘Tell us about New Jerusalem.” Mary said, “It is Wisdom, not of this world, but of the World of Supernal Light. When all of the sparks are gathered in and all of the vessels of light are mended, you will see the glory of New Jerusalem coming out of heaven, and in it you will behold the bridal chamber and the image of the Anointed One in it.”
Mary said, ‘The holy land is wherever a child of Light goes, and it is where the child of Light abides. The holy land is where the Anointed and the soul are joined. It is the bridal chamber.”
Mary spoke and said, “There is baptism, chrism, and wedding feast, and there is the ransom and bridal chamber. Baptism is water, chrism is fire and the ransom is earth. The wedding feast is the air, for in the Spirit we shall meet the Anointed in the air on the Day of Joy, and then the element of the bridal chamber shall be fully revealed. Everything the Lord accomplished he accomplished in a mystery, and the Anointed Bride is the mystery.”
Mary said “No one finds the Lord save those to whom the Lord reveals himself, for the Lord seeks his own and has come for the Elect.”
Mary said “The Divine Mother is Light and she is darkness, she is the saint and she is the sinner, angels and demons are image in her, as are the gods and all of the archons; yet she is beyond all of these. Know her in all things and you will be free of bondage, even as the Anointed is free.”
“Mary was teaching in the assembly, and a woman exclaimed, ‘Now is the hour of the Holy Bride!’ Mary said, ‘No, before the Bride is received, she must be rejected, and before the Second Coming there must come a great darkness. Until the Second Coming of Christ, the Wisdom of God shall not be received. When the bride is received, know the Second Coming is near.”
“Because of the power of the demiurges you have forgotten yourself. You believe you are a child of darkness, yet you are a child of Light. Indeed! Truly, I say to you, you are a person of Light who has come from the Light, and if you remember yourself, you will know where your home is. This is the remembrance of the wedding feast, regarding which the Lord instructed us, “Do this in remembrance of me.”
“What the Anointed is, I am and you are, for this reason the Anointed has come, to remind those caught in the spell of forgetfulness.’ ‘Beware! If you blaspheme the Mother Spirit, there will be no one to save you, for she is the Spirit of salvation and your very life.”
“The Logos emanated into the world for the redemption of Sophia. If the redemption of Sophia is not received in the world, then the world is not redeemed. Sophia received the Logos, and those who cleave to Sophia have received the Logos and they are redeemed. It is Sophia in you that receives the Logos and is saved. Logos is the name of the Lord and Sophia is the name of the Bride. In the bridal chamber, their name is Christos.”
“Of all things I wish you to have the Sacred Heart of Christ, which is compassion. For compassion is the womb of the Mother in which Christ is born, and in this, Christ will be born in you. Pray to the Mother Spirit to have her womb and to conceive and birth the Anointed in you”
“Pray the Holy Spirit moves so that you might recognize her, for then she can lead you into perfect repose, even as she led the Son to repose in the Living Father. If you believe in a multiplicity of gods, it is inferior; yet if you do not recognize the many powers, superior knowledge is impossible”
“Do not be deceived by the name ‘Comforter’ that is given to the Holy Spirit. Before she is the Comforter, her name is Deep Trouble, and she will seem as an angel of wrath before appearing as an angel of mercy.”
“Some disciples inquired of Mary about the end of time. Mary said, ‘It is the Day of Understanding. In that time, there will be holy apostles who bring the knowledge of the covenant of the Mother Spirit, and there will be many false prophets in the world. A great Light and great darkness shall enter into the world, and great conflict and confusion will follow. The Bride will be with the holy ones and she will bring with her two witnesses, and there will be many signs in the matrix of the world, and also there will be wonders, though hidden. If peace is attained before that time, then all shall come to pass by way of pure grace; yet in those days, if peace is not attained then grace shall surely appear as woes and wrath. On account of the archons, it is unlikely that peace shall be attained before that day. But the holy shall be set apart, and though they die, yet shall they live to enter the bridal chamber.”
“In the day of the coming of the Anointed, many shall look and see, and among them many will be unwilling to enter the Light, for they shall not recognize the Light in the Daughter sent among them. One who knows the Mother is near to the Father, but one who denies the Mother is far from the Father. There is not two, but only one God and God is both Father and Mother.”
“This is the Gospel of the Sophia of Ain Sof (One-Without-End), for there is no end to the divine revelation transpiring through the Holy Bride. Whatever might be spoken or written, there is always much more to be received. To all who listen and hear in the Spirit, she continues to speak.”
In Tau Malachi’s words;
With the dawn of male-dominated orthodoxy and fundamentalism, which occurred some 300 to 400 years into the Christian movement, and the complete rejection that followed of the Holy Bride, St. Mary of Magdala, the deeper mystical and magical elements of Christianity were rejected. I dare say the true spirit and soul of the Christ revelation was lost to the majority of Christians. Today, we can only wonder what the face of Christianity and our Western societies and cultures would look like had the Holy Bride been well received and the Sacred Feminine remained a central part of Christianity. Of course, we cannot go back in time and undo the injustice and harm that has been done, but we can actively seek to reclaim the Sacred Feminine and restore the Holy Bride to her rightful place alongside the Bridegroom, seeking a more holistic and integral Christianity. Given the extreme imbalance between the masculine and feminine in our present human condition and world and the evolutionary crisis we are facing, the need to reclaim the Sacred Feminine and to restore the Holy Bride to her rightful place is clear.
When we seek to reclaim the Sacred Feminine in our spiritual quest and to actively invoke the Holy Bride, we do so not only for ourselves, but for the sake of humanity and the world. According to the Sophian vision of the Christ revelation, it is the coequality and mystical union of the masculine and feminine that is the spiritual hope for the future of humanity and Planet Earth.
Heavenly Father, Earthly Mother, may the Holy Bride be
received and may the dawn of the Age of the Mother Spirit come.
May the fullness of the Truth and Light shine among us,
the image of the Bridegroom and Holy Bride in the bridal chamber!

Coup attempt against Donald Trump fails, October revolution continues
By Benjamin Fulford October 21, 2019
An attempted coup against U.S. President Donald Trump has failed and several senior U.S. politicians, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, are likely to be arrested or executed as a result, MI6 and Pentagon sources say. That is why Pelosi, Schiff, plus Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel, Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, and Rep. Mac Thornberry, the ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee, and others made a sudden trip to Jordan and then Afghanistan, the sources say.
The politicians sought protection in Jordan because Antoinette
Gardiner, the mother of the current King of Jordan, is from a satanic
bloodline who “converted” to Islam and changed her name to Muna,
according to Pentagon and other sources.
However, Jordan’s government was unwilling or unable to provide protection, so they flew to Afghanistan in a failed attempt to drum up U.S. military support there for their coup, the sources said.
It is worth noting that last week former Defense Secretary James Mathis and former head of U.S. Special Forces Admiral William McRaven both publicly criticized Trump and were widely quoted as doing so by the corporate propaganda media.
Mathis, after criticizing Trump, warned that “hyper-partisanship”
would either lead to “anarchy” or “the rise of an ambitious leader,
unfettered by conscience, or precedent or decency, who would make
McRaven, who led the fake raid against Bin Laden in 2011, was quoted as saying, “As I stood on the parade field at Fort Bragg, one retired four-star general grabbed my arm, shook me, and shouted, ‘I don’t like the Democrats, but Trump is destroying the Republic!’ Those words echoed with me throughout the week.”
The coup attempt was prompted by “the execution of powerful anti-Trump Congressman Elijah Cummings,” who was “found guilty of enabling child sex trafficking,” Pentagon sources say. Pelosi was also prompted to flee the country by the death of her brother, former Baltimore Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro III, the sources say.
The trail of intrigue is now implicating Pope Francis, MI6 sources say. “The Pope’s bodyguard, Vatican Head of Police Domenico Giani, just resigned over the financial corruption scandal and associated leaks,” they say. “Really, the Pope should just go. We will eventually find the…
…financial forensics leading back to him linked to assassination attempts against people involved in setting up the new financial system,” they added. The Pope’s role in Argentina’s “dirty war,” in which over 20,000 people were tortured and murdered, is also being investigated, they note.
The Pope and the P2 Freemasons who put him in power were responsible for this dirty war, as well as 9/11, Fukushima, and many other mass murder incidents. They also bragged that the now executed Barack Obama was their man.
Francis will be visiting Japan (a country where only 0.5% of the population is Catholic) from November 23 to 26 to try to shore up the slave regime of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. While here, Francis will try to continue the cover-up of the fact that his predecessor as head of the Jesuits, Peter-Hanz Kolvenbach, boasted in a call recorded by the NSA that he was Satan and responsible for Fukushima. Francis has been warned that he will be the last pope if he continues to cover up these and other monstrous crimes against humanity committed by the Vatican.
The other thing Francis will be doing is preparing for the announcement of a fake Messiah which is being cultivated by the P2 Freemasons. This is an individual with stigmata who is being trained for this role, P2 Freemason sources say. The Vatican is also sending its top assassin to East Asia around this time in an effort to cover up its criminal activities in the region, the sources say.
It is interesting to note in this context that North Korean Supreme
Leader Kim Jong Un rode a white horse on the sacred Mt. Paektu last
week. The North Korean Central News agency predicted, “There will be a
great operation to strike the world with wonder again and make a step
forward in the Korean revolution.”
A sudden move (with U.S. military approval) to unify the Korean Peninsula may well be what Kim is planning. It is also worth noting that Emperor Hirohito was always pictured as a descendant of the Sun God when riding a white horse during WWII, so this picture of Kim also seems to indicate he is setting himself up as the true Emperor. Of course, Japanese Emperor Naruhito, who is hosting hundreds of international VIPs for his enthronement ceremony on October 22nd, is of a different opinion.
In any case, Asian intrigue aside, the dragnet is closing on the satanists worldwide, as a “Pentagon pedo task force of Navy Seals and Marines liberated thousands of children from Californian underground bases to deprive the deep state of adrenochrome,” the Pentagon sources say. Children are tortured and murdered before their blood and adrenal glands are removed in order to extract the stimulant adrenochrome, according to multiple whistleblowers.
Also last week, the U.S. Department of Justice “arrested 337 pedos across 38 countries including the UK, France, Italy, the U.S., Germany, and Brazil after a dark web, Bitcoin child porn site hosting 250,000 videos was shut down,” the Pentagon sources say. Of course, it is just a matter of time before the arrested pedophiles rat on their satanic bosses.
The net is also closing in on the cabal following the arrest in India of drug maker Ranbaxy founders Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, who have begun “snitching on the Clinton Foundation,” the sources add.
The ongoing negotiations by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to testify against his satanic bosses in exchange for leniency is yet another continuing threat to the cabal. The U.S. withdrawal from Syria has forced Israeli politicians like him to realize they have to cut a deal, because Israel no longer has the U.S. military at its beck and call.
The reality on the ground is that the messianic Israeli project is
coming to an end. A Persian (Iranian), Arab, and Turkish war or intense
negotiations will now determine the fate of the Middle East. The
Israelis will have to reach an accord with one of these factions to
ensure the survival of their country. The most likely candidates are
their fellow Semites—the Arabs. In fact, Egypt has now come out against
Turkey on behalf of the Arabs, meaning they are Israel’s best hope.
In any case, Russian diplomacy, backed by a tacit U.S./Russian military alliance, will probably make intense negotiations the most likely outcome in the region.
A lot of intrigue is going on in other parts of the world as well. However, since this is being widely reported elsewhere, we will just note that there are riots and social unrest in France, England, Spain, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Lebanon, Hong Kong, etc. The ultimate backdrop to all this unrest is uncertainty at the highest levels of power; that is, at the top of the financial system.
A European royal says this Bloomberg interview with Federal Reserve
Bank of St. Louis President James Bullard discussing regime change at
the Fed “is actually a sign that control of interest rate decisions has
moved from a manual rate setting by ‘the Committee’ reactive to the
global economy to recursive complexity theory using A.I.” In other
words, AI detects repeating patterns in order to make decisions. This
essentially what modern weather forecasters do when predicting things
However, a global currency reset to stabilize the entire system will have to wait until the old system destabilizes further, the source says. He predicted the reset would take place in the year 2020.
In the meantime, uncertainty levels, as measured by the frequency of
key words in the media, are at levels never seen before, surpassing
9/11, the Lehman shock, the fall of the Soviet Union, etc. In other
words, it looks like the old system is going to have to collapse before
the new can be ushered in.
This does not mean all the news is bad, though. For example, there
are now undeniable signs the U.S. military has begun the process of
disclosure. They have been publishing patents for technology like free
energy that will totally revolutionize how we live.
Now it looks like an actual demonstration of this
science-fiction-like technology will take place on October 30th,
according to a U.S. Air Force Academy tweet.
We are also hearing that diamond prices are plunging worldwide
because previously hidden carbon technology is about to be released.
Remember, diamonds are made of carbon, one of the cheapest and most
plentiful materials there is. Carbon scientists tell us that diamond
windows, tableware, etc. will soon be made available to the public.
Even more exciting, medical technology to make us immortal is being
released. For example, a three-drug combination that can increase
lifespan by 50% has been announced. While the article below says this
works for fruit flies, it affects a basic mechanism in our bodies that
is identical to that seen in fruit flies.
Let that sink in a bit—technology for free energy, space travel, and immortality is being made available publicly. These are very real signs that a new age has begun.

ANCIENT AWAKENINGS – PREPARE FOR CHANGE
Sunday Call 19.10.20 (St. Germain, KaRa, OWS, Shoshanna)
James & JoAnna McConnell
SAINT GERMAIN (Channeled by James McConnell)
I am Saint Germain. I come at this time with what we consider very exciting news.
News that has been building up for quite some time, now. You have heard many things over the past years, and months, and weeks, and days. Many things are leading you to believe that your lives are changing and are going to change in a dramatic way. That is true. They are going to change in a dramatic way.
But always remember that if these changes are going to come, they must first come within the NOW. Must always be within the NOW moment. Because the NOW moment is the fifth dimension. And the more that you can find yourself in that NOW moment, you will be in those higher vibrations, in the higher fourth and into the fifth dimension.
You have heard many things. Much news that has come forward over the past time. Many predictions. Many people have said this. Many intel sources have come forth and said this will happen, or this is coming. We ourselves, brothers of the Great White Brotherhood, your galactic friends, brothers and sisters, the Agarthans, all have been saying that dramatic changes are about to come to you, about to befall you here on the Earth.
Up to this point, you look and you do not see the dramatic changes as of yet. The exciting news that I am here to bring to you, that I have been asked to share, is the news that very dramatic truths are about to come forward in many different respects. Those dominoes that have been spoken that would begin to fall, one rather large domino is about to fall. It may come in the form of an announcement. It may come in the form of simply a happening experience that occurs. No, it is not going to be a major revelation coming in the skies, not as of yet. But it will come as a major revelation in terms of truth coming forward, in terms of the darkness being illuminated by the light. Those that still crouch within the darkness, within the shadows, must now come forward and bring those truths to the larger public as a whole, not only to the Lightworkers and Lightwarriors which all of you are, but to those outside of yourself as well.
Those that are still in that sleeping state, but are about to become awakened by something rather dramatic. We cannot, of course, give you what that will be, but it will be quite astounding to many, and even to those of you that have been waiting expectantly for these various things to come forward. Even those of you will not be astounded so much, but will find joy deep within your heart coming forward.
Because the moment of awakening is coming very close now, the awakening of mankind across the planet. Not, of course, all will awaken. Many will choose to continue to stay asleep. But that is not your concern. Your concern will be to those who are ready to awaken, those who are reaching up to the Light and want more and more of that Light, want more and more of that information to be shared, the truth that you have known for some time, they will now want those truths as well.
That is what is coming very, very soon to all of the planet. First here in this country, your United States, the Republic of the United States (that, my friends, is a hint), all of this is about to come forward now. And once it begins, it will be as the avalanche that has been spoken of many times. The avalanche that will continue to gain momentum and take all of the darkness along with it that will then be illuminated by the Light. The dark can no longer stay in the dark, in the shadows. The shadows must be illuminated.
It has been written, it has been said before, and these are those times now that you, those of you, again that volunteered so long ago, these are those times you have been waiting for, that you have been preparing for, and that we have been helping to prepare you for. But as of yet, you have, as the saying goes, not seen anything yet. But you shall.
I am Saint Germain, and I leave you now, knowing that many of things in terms of the financial endeavors that have been works, in process, are about to come forward. That is not to say that you will automatically become rich overnight—that is not the plan. It is not the plan for you to all of a sudden find yourself in riches. The plan is for balance to be brought to the world. And you, those of you, are a big part of bringing that balance to mankind.
I leave you now in peace and love, and turn this channeling over to another who wishes to speak with you.
Peace and love be with all of you. And may the Violet Flame continue to purge out all of the darkness, not only within each of you, but in everyone around you as well.
KaRa (Channeled by James McConnell)
I am KaRa.
I appreciate, as always, the opportunity to be with you, to share with you.
To give you more understanding of that that has been spoken of previously by myself, by Ashtar, that about disclosure, and how close disclosure is now. Project Disclosure is very close. It is going to happen. It is in the process of happening. And has been said before, we are now bringing disclosure to you. But it is not only about disclosure that I have come to speak with you, it is about the other projects that are in the works.
One in particular, what we call Project Masterpiece. This project is also coming close to culmination. And that is to round up, you might say, to bring forward those that are in the shadows, as Saint Germain has given, into the Light. They will come into the light of the truth of the knowing. And so that all across the planet can begin to understand what has happened, what has been happening over the many thousands of years, and what is now about to come to a culmination, an end.
As Archangel Michael said to you a couple of times ago, he spoke to you of the game, and the game that is no longer needing to be played. And we say the same thing, now. Reach out to your brothers, your sisters and assist them in not playing the game, as well.
Assist them in being ready to accept the truth as it comes forward. As the light is brought forward, they will be ready as well, just as you have been, just as you are now, to accept the truth, to accept the Light into your lives. The darkness can no longer hold sway upon all of the people of the planet. They have lost control, and Project Masterpiece is all about taking that control away.
We don’t take that control away, you do. We are just here to facilitate the process. We, the Pleiadians, the Sirians, the Andromedans, all that are here to assist in this process, we are all playing our parts, just as you are all playing your parts.
And those parts are coming together more and more so that all of the
various workings, all of the machinations that are working together to
bring the entire project to a climax, to a culmination, to a crescendo.
That is what this is all about.
You can look at it as a large piece of machinery and all of the cogs, the wheels that are helping to move the machinery, move the energy through the machine. And every and every one of you are one of those cogs, are one of those pieces that are needed to keep the machine running.
The machine, of course, here, is the universe. The universe, the galaxy, the solar system, the earth, and all of you here upon the earth. And always remember: you are in the earth, or on the earth, but not of the earth. Do not be of the planet. Just be here now in the moment so that you can assist in the process as Project Masterpiece continues to move forward. And all that are there that are needing to be brought out to the public. The troops coming forward: that is what this is all about.
And yes, it does encompass the financial system. It does encompass many arrests that need to be done, because they have to be brought forward. The truth must be revealed. The truth shall be revealed. All will know the truth as it comes forward. And you, my friends, are the truth to come forward.
I am KaRa, and I leave you now at this point to continue to prepare. Prepare yourselves for the light of truth to become known across the entire planet.
All my peace and love be with all of you.
ONE WHO SERVES (Channeled by James McConnell)
Om, mani, padme, hum; om, mani, padme, hum, hum, hum. Greetings to you.
One Who Serves here. You can now unmute your phones, and we can move along here and answer your questions if you have questions.
We have noticed over various timeframes here that your questions have become very much more attuned, attuned to the vibrations that you have moved into. They are no longer the questions of a one that is awakening. They are those questions now of ones that are awakened. And that is a major difference, here.
We so enjoy these questions, because when you ask certain of thee types of questions, we can then expand, or expound, on those questions and bring the Light forward more and more. And that is what this is all about, is bringing the Light through: through your hearts, and through your minds, and the heart-mind connection. Bringing it all together so that the entire planet, the galaxy, the solar system are all illuminated by the Light, by the love, by the consciousness of higher vibration.
Do you have questions now for One Who Serves and Shoshanna?
Guest: Yes, hi One Who Serves and Shoshanna.
Guest: First of all, I would like to thank you all for the beautiful, beautiful words you kept saying, one word after another, that I was just loving hearing and had been waiting desperately to hear. And so I just thank you for it.
But my question is, I have been noticing that the Schumann frequency has been going crazy in the last week. So if I understand right, black lines mean we had a time line change. Please correct me if I’m wrong. And I’m curious about what solid white lines are. And then I noticed we had a period of about 24 hours or so that was completely black this week, and I want to know what’s going on.
OWS: What we are going to tell you is not so much about the direct relationship to the Schumann resonance, but the relationship to all of vibration that is increasing across the planet.
Those of you can feel it. You can feel it here when these energies come in. And we can see it. We can see it in that flame that burns within each of you. And it is burning more and more brightly, not only within those of you, the Lightworkers and Lightwarriors, the Lightworker community, but to many, many more that are now awakening as a result of this.
You heard in terms of your conversation earlier in the situation where the one was in a musical situation (if you call that music). But whatever it is, it was in that situation, and there was love there. There was concern there. There was consciousness there within all the ruckus around them in terms of being in the eye of the storm around. So in that area, what you call the ‘mosh pit,’ those that were going wild and crazy, and the energy so raised up, not in terms of higher vibrations that you would think in terms of higher vibrations. But within that, there was the love, there was the timing to assist and to be of service to others there. And that is what we are speaking of. That is what is changing, here.
And your Schumann resonance is a resemblance of this. It is indicating this shift that is happening, and correct in terms of time line shift, yes, it has been that. And the energies are coming stronger and stronger, and they are going to get stronger and stronger and stronger. So be ready for this.
You heard also in terms of a warning, a darkness that is coming. We would not say it is a darkness, but it is a light that is coming to illuminate the darkness. That was what was actually being given there. We certainly would never say for you to be in fear or to be anticipating that anything would be coming. For some, it may be considered negative.
But it is where you are needing to, as we say many times, keep those seatbelts fastened because Kansas, as you do know it, or as you have known it, is going bye-bye, you see? So that is the old programming we are speaking of. Not Kansas, of course, itself, is not going anywhere, but the programming, the old ways, are going to be gone, here, more and more as you move more fully into the ascension, here.
Shoshanna, we know you are waiting, here. We apologize for taking so much time. But your floor, here.
Shoshanna: (Channeled by JoAnna McConnell):
You have explained this very well. And we have a perspective for you, Dear Sister. May we share our perspective?
Guest: Yes, thank you.
Shoshanna: What is happening all around you is a cause and effect. The being that you are, the hue-man who is imbued with the Source, who is the source, who is the divinity that was given to this soul way before the incarnation into a being known as human is causal.
When we recognize as humans that what is occurring outside of us was inside of us first, then we know our power. So when you look outside yourself at external events, you can be sure that those events started inside of you, and that your recognition of those events is because you are awakening to those events as a causal being. We hope this helps. Namaste.
Guest: Um, it does, but I think I need to clarify something. I guess I was thinking of the Schumann resonances as like a foretelling of what energies were coming toward us, and their intensity. But it seems like you both saying that they are a measurement of what’s coming from the earth. And I was thinking it was what was coming from the heavens.
Shoshanna: It is all one. It is all one, and that is perplexing to most. We can tell you is all one, that one draws upon the next, draws upon the next, draws upon the next. That it is an energy flow that is created by the one. And the one includes all of the multiverses, the galaxies, the universes, and YOU, and the planet.
The Schumann resonance is a result of all of those things, and that it is a magnification of the causation mostly of humans, you see. So human beings, as they excel and exceed their third-dimensional conscious-knowing selves and move past that, the Schumann raises. Do you see that?
Guest: Yes. And so that energetic connection between everything, that would be considered like a toroidal or a serpentine-type of an energy, am I correct in saying that?
Shoshanna: Yes, yes you are. And you are the scientist, our Dear Sister.
Guest: (Laughs) No, I don’t think of myself in that way (laughs).
Shoshanna: Well, our Dear Sister, toroidal is a scientific term that most will not even understand or know what you are speaking of, but yes, that is correct.
Guest: Yeah, that is why I also said serpentine that could be thought of as spiraling.
Guest: And it folds within, upon itself, and yeah, it is very flowing. Let’s just say it flows.
Shoshanna: And you must notice, as you are speaking in these terms, that the very Milky Way Galaxy is a toroidal shape.
Guest: Yeah. It’s everywhere in nature. It’s in all of creation.
Shoshanna: It is the Flower of Life that has been spoken of.
Guest: Right. Yeah. Well, thank you. I appreciate all the time and for my brothers and sisters for putting up with my multi-questions (laughs). Thank you very much. I love you all.
Shoshanna: Namaste, Dear One.
OWS: Wonderful. Wonderful, and wonderful questions. Are there any other questions, here?
Guest: One Who Serves. I just want to make a comment. During that astral journey where I had the warning. I had to go so fast with that, I left out the part that actually as I was flying and the areas that would have been frightening, they were like teddy bears and I continued to sing and dance, and there was no fear. It was actually written up on my astral journey that we were to be prepared for anything that might come, and we are not to have any fear. So I want to send this out later on to everybody, and you can really read the entire thing. But I got that as well. We just keep our seatbelts fastened and continue your life. Live your life, be happy, be in joy, and don’t worry about any of the snags that might pop up, because they cannot harm us.
OWS: That is correct. Be in the eye of the storm.
Shoshanna: We have something to share, here.
Shoshanna: May we share our perspective, Dear Sister?
Shoshanna: What has been given you to is personal to you. It is about you. It is about your life. It is about how you have progressed, how you see the world, how you contribute to the world, how you transcend the world. This is personal to you, and it applies to all. But what we must tell you, and you may already be completely aware of this, is that those messages are for you. Namaste.
Guest: Thank you.
OWS: Very good. Are there any further questions, here?
Guest: Yeah, hi.
Guest: I have been sort of having dreams. I don’t remember the details. But it does go back to Atlantis, And Atlantis is one of the lifetimes that I remember, again, not in detail, but I do remember some things that occurred. Also, just recently I have been reading channeled messages that also are relating to Atlantis, the fall of Atlantis, what occurred there. We are kind of at that point at this time, so we are kind of doing the full circle and going into kind of auto-correct of that time. Is there something you can speak to around that, and how it really relates to where we are now?
OWS: The fall of Atlantis, a you are speaking of, is continued time, after time, after time in terms of civilizations coming on, and civilizations falling. And that has happened over and over, not only here on this planet, but many planets and galaxies ad infinitum, infinite, here. It has happened over, and over, and over.
And at this point here, those of the dark forces had planned the same thing again. They had planned to bring this about. Of course they would survive, they would be the ones that would survive, and the rest of humanity would perish, just as occurred in Atlantis, in Lemuria, and it was planned for this to occur again.
But of course, what is your saying? ‘The best laid plans of mice of men often go astray,’ right? So that was not going to be allowed in this respect, here. The Prime Creator said ‘”‘enough is enough.” The earth, Gaia herself, reached out to her brothers and sisters out there and asked for assistance. And assistance has come. And those things that were going to happen are not going to happen here now. Disaster, as you know it, all the catastrophes and everything, of the predictions from the bible and other works are not going to occur. So do not be concerned about this.
But the timelines are what are involved here. The timeline has been shifted enough so that those things that were planned by those of those dark forces are not going to be. Okay?
Shoshanna: Dear Sister, may we share with you?
OWS: Sure can.
Shoshanna: We have seen something that we will reveal to you, and you may be completely aware of this.
In your life in the Atlantis lifetime, you were part of a council. You may know this. You had a designation as if you were a princess. You were one that gave advice. The people did not listen. They did not listen to you. And you are re-playing this now through a universal language that you know as ‘light language.’
The movie that you were drawn to so deeply, and we apologize because this one that we speak through, JoAnna, has an empty head and she cannot remember the name of the movie and give it to us…
Shoshanna: ‘Arrival.’ Yes. You recall how you were drawn to that?
Guest: Oh yes.
Shoshanna: Do you recall how it plucked at your heart strings? And you have taken your position now, and you sit with that language given to others to awaken them to a higher understanding of who they are and where their heart must be to move to the ascension.
So you are playing a very important roll. But this roll was from that lifetime and continues now in this lifetime, so take it VERY SERIOUSLY, and know that you, because you are so loving and so integral, with so much integrity that you have been chosen again to bring this about in humanity.
This is what we have to share with you, Dear Sister. Namaste.
OWS: And we would add here that as Shoshanna has given that at that time they did not listen. At this time, you find that they may not be listening either because they do not understand. But that matters not.
You need to continue to do what you are doing because it is very important that you bring, not so much the words here are not important, but the vibration within those words is what is important, here, the vibration, the consciousness that comes with this.
Because they would be considered in terms of downloads. And anyone that is hearing these words come through, this language that no one knows what it is, it is getting within them regardless, even if they have no conscious understanding of what it means.
Someone can attempt to elucidate what is being given, but they will not even come close to in terms of your English language to be able to understand what it is. It just must be felt. It must be just reached within one’s self to be able to have the full understanding from this that you bring here, okay?
Guest: Fantastic. Thank you, guys, I appreciate it.
Shoshanna: May we offer another suggestion perspective to you?
Guest: Yes, please.
Shoshanna: We would ask that you consider, when you are offering yourself to others and bringing in this light language, that there be a preamble to your discourse, that you would say to people–you may need to repeat this very often– that this language that you bring is not a language that the brain can translate.
Shoshanna: That this language cannot be understood with the brain. That they must learn to listen with their heart, and to open their heart to listen AND FEEL what the language is telling them, and then allow them to share. But giving them this message prior to your discourse will help them open their heart and listen with that, not with their head. Does this make sense to you, Dear Sister?
Guest: Oh yes, very much so. Thank you very much.
OWS: Very good. Are there any further questions, here?
Guest: I have a question.
Guest: I heard a message this morning from the Arcturian Council of Twelve with regard to mass landings, and that the timeline for that has been moved up. It didn’t say how much, but that critical mass was getting closer. Anyway, I wanted to know if that had anything to do with this, and if we are looking for disclosure coming forward, are we looking at the next couple of weeks, the next couple of months? Thank you.
OWS: Of course we cannot give you dates or times of this nature, but we can tell you the answer to your question is yes. It has been moved up. It relates to that which KaRa gave, Project Masterpiece, and also Project Disclosure, as well as other projects that are in the works here, too. And they are all leading to what you are calling ‘mass landings’ at a certain point.
But these mass landings cannot happen until Project Masterpiece has been completed. In other words, there must be those of the dark forces removed from the picture, here. They have been given many opportunities, after opportunities, after opportunities to turn to the Light. Many have done so, but many have also still refused to do so. There will not be waiting much longer, here.
Those of your leaders, those that are able to bring these changes forward, those in your Alliance, they are working very diligently, very hard, and sometimes even losing their lives, to bring these needed changes to the planet. So that is what is in the works here, we would say. Shoshanna, anything you would like to add?
Shoshanna: We must ask a question. Dear Sister, may we ask a question of you?
Shoshanna: What do you wish to be disclosed that you do not already know?
Guest: I just want it to be disclosed to everyone, that’s all.
Shoshanna: May we share this perspective with you?
Guest: Of course. Yes, please.
Shoshanna: It is important that all that are in the Light Community acknowledge their understanding. Acknowledge that they are completely aware of everything, and that they do not need to wait for a government or individuals or a group to announce disclosure. If all of you began to be in the now moment. that all is revealed in this moment. and that you are completely knowledgeable and aware of all that is going on, you will not have to seek external understanding, because it is within you. You know everything. It is just a matter of acknowledging your knowledge, and not seek to know from others what is going on.
We are not being clear about this, but we will tell you that you know what’s going on, and if it is frustrating to you that others do not understand this, that is the lesson for you. You see?
Guest: Okay. Thank you.
Shoshanna: Does that make sense to you, Dear Sister?
Guest: Absolutely. I just think we’re all in the same place when it comes to that.
Shoshanna: Yes. Namaste.
Guest: Thank you.
OWS: Yes. Now would there be any further questions?
Guest: I wish to speak.
Guest: This is the first occasion I’ve heard the term “masterpiece.” Could you explain that a little further, please?
OWS: The need to explain what is meant by this is not important, because it is just a term that has been given here to this particular project. But this project is all about bringing an end to those who still attempt to hold things back, here. More and more, they have come to the understanding that they are finished. They cannot continue to hold things back, even though they make attempts here and there to do so, thinking that at the last moment, the very last moment, they will be rescued by those coming from high above, those coming from the stars from long ago who will come back to assist them. They are not. They are not coming, and that is not going to happen. So, it is all about bringing it in to those forces that have held the Light off for as long as they have. Okay?
Guest: Okay. Thank you.
OWS: Would there be any further question? We need to release channel here, now. Is there any further question?
Guest: Yes, One Who Serves. Hello beautiful Shoshanna,, as well. I have booked my trip to Mt. Shasta for two weeks from yesterday. I also then listened to the Michael Love video. They were talking about how to prepare the body, we need to move to raw foods and nothing cooked, and nothing even frozen. I wanted to just check in, because I had a strong feeling maybe I should go that direction, especially with the Mt. Shasta trip. And I was wondering is that valid and true that that is the direction we are wanting to be moving, everything just in its natural state, nothing done to it, really. Is that the direction we are wanting to be moving for our Light bodies?
OWS: First of all, there is no shoulds here, of course. And it is always about moving into the higher vibrations. And as you move into those higher vibrations, all that you are speaking of will take care of itself. The body will no longer be able to handle or withstand certain foods that you have utilized for all your life, and maybe in other lifetimes previous to this. It will not even want it. There will not be the cravings anymore for the sugar or for various types of meats or anything of this nature. All of this will go away on its own. We say this because it is not something that you need to feel guilty about. Certainly, don’t feel any guilt here whatsoever. If you take something into your body, if it is not meant for it, your body will tell you. It will purge it out in some way or it will give you some indication that ‘no, this is not right for you.’ As to whether it is to be raw foods or whatever it is, the more plant- and fruit-based type of diet you can be on, of course, is better because it is nature. Anything that is associated with nature is very important. Now, of course, we are not speaking of the eating of animal flesh. That is something that is quite rapidly, we will say, more and more, going away. And it will eventually completely be gone, because there will be no need for it anymore. And, with your higher vibrations, no one will even want it anymore. But, take it as you need to take it. Listen to your body. Your body will tell you what you need. Shoshanna?
Shoshanna: Yes, you have given all that is true, here. But we will rephrase somewhat. May we share our rephrasing, Dear Sister?
Guest: Definitely. We would tell you that you are completely aware, you are so aware, that the mind and the body are one thing. That the body is the mind, and the mind is the body. And that both must be fed correctly. Both must be given the proper nutrients to excel, to move past the drama, to move past the low vibrations.
We would tell you that seeking the advice of another is how we find that the information already resides in our hearts. It is just a reminder. Anything that we read or know of, or listen to, is a matter of finding it within our own hearts to be true. Do you see?
Guest: Yes, definitely. Thank you.
Shoshanna: So, if this resonates with you to eat raw food, if this truly resonates with you, then that is what you must do. If it does not, you do not. We would tell you that there are many disciplines, especially the Ayurvedic Medicine, that tells you to steam your vegetables so that your digestive system is not taxed. There are many that cannot digest raw food. And there are many that need their vegetables steamed. So you must find which is appropriate for you.
And, you must raise the vibration of your mind and heart to accept any information that is given to you now through this trip that you are about to take. It is important that you prepare both your mind and your body, and listen to your heart, especially what is correct for you. No one can tell you this. Does that make sense to you, Dear Sister?
Guest: Ye it does. Thank you.
Shoshanna: Yes. Namaste.
OWS: We also add here, since you have brought this up, that the one, the Michael Love, channeling was where you can find out more information about this Project Masterpiece. This is where it came through here first, as we find it. You can learn more about this. There is much correct information that is coming forward. Not all is correct certainly, but never in any channeling session is everything 100% correct. It is what you need to take from it using your discernment at all times. Okay?
We need to release channel here now. Before we do, Shoshanna, anything you wish to add at the end, here?
Shoshanna: We are going to say in this moment that what is most important and what is most valuable in the human process is to learn for yourself what is appropriate for yourself. Learn who you are, and acknowledge your gifts in each moment, and be unto yourself. It is not important what others think. It is not important what others say. It is most important that you find in your heart what is appropriate for you. Namaste.
OWS: Very good. And what we are about to say for this group, Ancient Awakenings predominantly only, and that is that this group has been selected, you might say, to be a guiney pig, we can say here, in terms of at your next Advance we are going to attempt to do something that has not been done before: to bring the vibrations up to such a point where you will literally be in the fifth dimension during that time. We have shared this with the James. He has no idea how we are going to do this. But we are going to do it as long as your vibrations are reached to a high enough level, and we will do much to bring those who are in attendance to this to come to that culmination, that crescendo that is needed to feel the vibrations of the higher fifth dimension, here. That is what we can say here now, and we will build up to this as we go, here.
Shanti. Peace be with you. Be the One.

There has been a lot of interference in your Reality that is playing out in your Now Timeline …. As the continuation of Higher 13D Light code’s continue to integrate /activate ’ And upgrade your Physical avatars ,
Your DNA/RNA and subtle energy fields.
Your light bodies & Merkabas are working an extra gear to acclimate to this amount of light…
As you filter this light through your interconnected energy networks of the chamber’s of your hearts and direct this light into the planetary Mother ….
We see you working diligently in service to the All …
With such love and gratitude to you our beloved Earth family.
Unfortunately On the higher planes , there was a huge attack underway against our Fleets at the Mid 4D level , Many of you beloveds , are tapping your energetic perceptional awareness into theses attacks on our fleets ….
interpreting through your multidimensional 3-4D lenses.
However in terms of battles….
from our Higher 5th Dimensional perspective, the lower Astral 4D Brothers and sisters, are ‘ at war ’ with us, ….
but we do not ‘ implement war upon them….
Unfortunately they want us to fight them, pull us into Vibrational energy battles …
However we wouldn’t be in the Universal Laws of
vibration/frequencies of 5D love ,
if We Reverted to Lower vibrational energies of War ….
This is simply a game to them of vibrational control , Spinning a constant negative dualistic motif into the collective ….. … polarisation …
So our Fleet ships …
Only deflect , shield and ’round up’ Lower 4D Ships that attempt to fire their weapons upon us…
strategically fencing off aggressing lower 4D entities into a
( Force field & light fields ) of Higher light , and remove them to particular higher inter-dimensional Cities of Light ,
Where our Angelic Family of light who specialize in Soul healing/ Can bring them back into Universal Oneness .
Like we say, Our Ships only shield and protect and deflect energy weapons , we do not have weapons of sorts on our lightships , we do not shoot weapons at these lower 4D ships …
we deflect only ….
And interface only …
This is not to say your Earth SSP have weapons , ..
They have a form of weaponry ’, and there are certain aspects or operations that are taking place right now in your lower Earth orbit in the removal of negative 4D interference within the outer rim of the planet and its Morphogenetic field….
As we understand how the Lower Astral Energys are trying to break through the interface and Thwart the Earth’s Merkaba Ascension rotation in your Now …
Slowing down the Rotational Spin Corrupting the Torus / Morphogenetic field or M Field of The Planetary mother and your individual M fields..
Our fallen family continue to attempt to sabotage & Thwart …
Slowing down the Ascension trajectory …
whilst you are in this critical stage of critical mass Ascension….
They can-not stop Ascension .. at a Planetary Soul level or solar system or Galaxy sector ….
However , they can attempt to slow the momentum down as they have before in many other Star systems ….
When they attempt to slow down your Planetary Merkaba , This acts as a ripple effect in the matrix ( temporal spatial Reality )
Effecting your coexistence in Oneness ) ….
Causing a stalling rift in the collective hive mind …
so to speak …
This in-turn ,
Causes Destructive irrational behaviour / separation / Fear / Doubt / Division and boundaries/
That Alter ideologies within the collective , a disconnect from true source & higher light …
A fear of self projection presents its self with the Human ….
Dear ones you can clearly see this playing out in your political arena / with many souls in a entanglement of expressing a form of ( political integrity ) with one another….
This is division & Fear ….
With no signs of compromise from each party involved , This entanglement causes resistance within the collective…
This is the energetic rift we speak of here Our Fallen brothers and sisters are constantly attempting to create this rift …
So We in the higher realms continue in the
the mending of rifts and smoothing out of your planetary merkaba and dimensional interface at the 4-5D level
Implementing 7/8 D angelic light into your planetary mother Through the network grid system of light grids & lay lines, we in the higher realms along with our boots on the ground , our beloved Anchors ‘conduits of light…
( That’s you beloveds )
