The hearts and minds of humanity at the moment are sufficiently opened to have the ability to really feel and to know that there’s a hyperlink that connects all humanity and all life. This consciousness has created a essential second within the evolution of humanity. Humanity as a complete is now responding to the decision from his particular person and collective Self, to return to his heritage that’s each Royal and Priestly. Below the affect of the planet Uranus that embodies the consciousness of Oneness and is the ruler of this New Age of Aquarius, mankind is starting to answer the urge towards Brotherhood.
For eons, mankind has grappled with the questions of his existence, his future, and the questions of: Who Am I? The place Did I Come From? What Am I Right here to Do? And The place Am I Going? The struggles to seek out solutions to those questions have led to a lot contemplation and inquiry by some and a sense of frustration, hopelessness and being trapped by many others.
The confluence of energies now being emitted into our planet by the Religious Hierarchy coupled with the excessive stage of human improvement is offering an acceptable atmosphere for the rigorous investigation to those urgent questions. Humanity is demanding extra time for self-discovery and reflection. The extra the person is aware of of himself and of his atmosphere, the better the sensation of management over his life and his future. To achieve that management, it’s important that his understanding of the Causal stage of his existence and his cause for embarking on this journey to Earth be realized.
The seek for philosophical and psychological explanations for our existence has introduced us to a beautiful and expanded psychological and emotional stage of improvement. One which now allows us to sense that there’s a important subsequent step in our evolution. There’s rising a fantastic want to penetrate into an excellent deeper understanding of life at its Core, which is to succeed in above and inside to seek out the Supply of this Dance of Life.
All by means of our historical past, the extra intellectually and spiritually superior of our race have given us glimpses into the deeper realities, which lie behind and past the superficial beliefs and understandings of our current realities. Amongst these superior souls are Pythagoras, Plato, Socrates, Francis Bacon and, after all, the elder brother of the Race of Man and chief of Piscean Age, Yeshua Ben Joseph. He’s who we within the West name Jesus the Christ.
There are lots of colleges of thought on the origin of Man. Considered one of these ideologies is the traditional Masonic story acted out within the Masonic rituals. I’ll discuss Masonry at nice size on this quantity. You will need to perceive the significance of this arcane information and its significance to the Age of Aquarius. On this Age, Masonry might be a restoration of those historical and sacred Mysteries. It’s going to accurately mirror the expressions of the Soul that are the true intent for which the Nice White Lodge on Sirius gave Masonry to Humanity. The distortions we now have witnessed over the centuries are additionally reflective of the distortions of the persona expressed as separateness, exclusion and cruelty. Masonry is a present to humanity and our destinies are inextricably linked to it.
The story of Masonry tells us that simply because the Candidate for initiation enters into the Lodge from outdoors the Lodge, mankind entered into Planet Earth from outdoors this planet. Man, a non secular entity symbolized by a circle, descended from his excessive property into Earth, symbolized by the sq.. Religious man entered into the Lodge of Earth to unfold his full divinity whereas in flesh. That is what has been known as the “squaring of the circle.” Within the Lodge, as on Planet Earth, the candidate topics himself to graded, disciplined coaching with particular aims. The first goal is self-knowledge and with this information, he has an obligation to be in service to all Life. The lengthy years of intense formal and casual coaching unfolds in his coronary heart and thoughts a deep understanding of his personal nature and, subsequently, the character of all life and his connection to them. He later begins to extrapolate this information in order to ponder his reference to life within the photo voltaic system, the galaxy, the universe and all life in all places. The Masonic story is occult in its nature. The phrase occult has conjured up frightful photos within the minds of many who’re unaware of its true which means. The time period will more and more grow to be commonplace because the Age of Aquarius is the Age of occultism and the externalization of the Western Mysteries.
Conversely, we’re leaving the Age of Mysticism, which we skilled below the Piscean Age, however we’re not leaving its contributions behind. Occultism, which implies hidden or secret information was mockingly, by no means hidden since nature lay naked all of the so-called hidden mysteries. It was all the time out there for all who have been mature sufficient to “see”. The ancients have informed us that no matter we’re afraid of holds the best promise for our liberation. Mankind has tended to be afraid of what he doesn’t perceive. To vary this sample, he should search to know.
In precept, all religions in all cultures have at their core the Masonic blueprint. The shape during which it’s practiced could be barely completely different from tradition to tradition and mirror the extent of consciousness up to now developed. Over the past fifty years, a big % of humanity has more and more expanded his seek for the hidden meanings of life. He’s additionally now accepting that his teachings don’t mirror the entire fact of his heritage and future. It is usually true, nonetheless, that because of humanity’s emotional and psychological maturity, he’s now higher capable of perceive extra. He’s now higher in a position to answer the sensor that’s inside him to regularly get up to his true nature.
An examination of the Masonic ritual offers us some clues to the which means of our life right here and helps us reply the good philosophical questions of Life. When the candidate enters the Lodge, he’s positioned within the Southwest nook, the place of best darkness and ignorance. This was additionally the location of the Planet within the photo voltaic System. The aim then is to maneuver by means of and across the Lodge to the East by means of the North, the place the veiled information, the unknown or mysteries, resides. Because the candidate will increase in information, knowledge and understanding, he is ready to half the veils of phantasm and this illumination duly locations him within the East of the Lodge, the place of data and Gentle.
This story of the candidate’s journey is analogous to that of man’s journey into type, from a spot of excessive property. It’s equally the story of the prodigal son spoken of within the Bible. He left residence and went on a journey into the far nation to achieve a information he couldn’t purchase if he had stayed at residence. Planet Earth is on the same journey within the Photo voltaic System.
For a lot of this concept resonates on the core of their beings as a result of they’ve by no means misplaced the reminiscence and information of their native land. Most of our indigenous teams on all of the continents have stored intact the information and reference to their historical residence on the Stars. Robert Temple within the Sirius Thriller offers a compelling account of the lengthy historical past of the Dogon peoples of Mali and their ongoing relationship with the star system Sirius. NASA later confirmed the exact data of the habits and place of the planet.
Zechariah Sitchin, in his ebook, The Twelfth Planet gave a researched account of the origin of mankind and our eventual future. Nevertheless, Ageless Knowledge has identified all this and extra for hundreds of years. Mankind is being impulsed on a regular basis to get up out of his lengthy sleep and to re-discover himself and his residence. Man’s journey into this human expertise is the mixed effort of three Nice constellations: the Nice Bear, Sirius and the Pleiades. They signify the Supernal Triangle of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Mom facet respectively. Qabalistically, they signify Kether, Chokmah and Binah on the Tree of Life. These three forces have influenced our experiment and journey. Humanity is right here to find how removed from the middle of sunshine he can journey and nonetheless make his method again residence safely with out dropping all reminiscence of his origin and his oneness together with his fellow beings and all life. These three energies in a step down course of specific themselves by means of the three facilities closest to humanity: Shamballah, the Hierarchy and Humanity.
The impulse for this experiment got here out of the constellation of the Nice Bear, which represents the Primal Will or Divine intent for mankind. It’s the middle from which the concept for inventive manifestation originated. It’s the decrease stage of this Will that humanity calls self-will and it’s by means of the medium of the zodiacal signal of Aries that this experiment was initiated. The seven main Stars of the Nice Bear are stated to be that of seven constellations from which the seven planetary influences affect our Earth. These make up the seven Rishis or seven brothers of the Nice Bear.
Sirius the “canine star” is alleged to be the “Nice teacher of mankind” from which the governance of this planet is orchestrated by the Lord of Motion and Response generally often known as Karma. The aim of its management is the event of cosmic consciousness on the psychological aircraft. Sirius impacts our planet by means of the influences of Uranus, Neptune and Saturn to supply the situations for the reaping of souls that’s now happening. The reference to Sirius is, subsequently, being felt by a lot of souls because of the development of consciousness that has occurred right here on planet Earth. The consciousness of Love-wisdom is the main target of this second member of the good supernal triangle. It’s from the good White Lodge on Sirius that the work of the Seventh Ray of Ceremonial Regulation and Order points. This vitality will produce the situations that may allow the re-appearance on Earth of the Mysteries of Initiation. It’s on this context that Masonry might be reformed, understood and grow to be open. The Solar has veiled the hidden planet Uranus however now employs it because the agent by means of which it focuses its affect like a lens to externalize the arcane mysteries on this Aquarian Age. The signal of Gemini, the signal of relationships, has offered a portal by means of which humanity got here to experiment with relationships between all pairs of opposites. It’s below this signal, and from Sirius that the Masonic custom was given to mankind. Its distinctive symbols of the 2 pillars of the temple, one white and one black, affords for our meditation the extremes of relationships. The Hierarchy or the Soul stage of expression of our planet is the medium by means of which the Lords on Sirius work.
The Pleiades, the third facet of the triangle, is known as the seven sisters and the brides of the seven brothers of the Nice Bear. It’s this union of the seven brides and the seven brothers that the ebook of Genesis speaks of when it refers to “the sons of God who’re gone all the way down to lie with the daughters of males.” We place the seven sisters of the Pleiades within the sphere of Binah, the Nice Mom and in union with the seven brothers of the Nice Bear within the sphere of Chokmah. They gave start to the Sons of males we name the seven planets: Jupiter, Mars, the bodily Solar, Venus, Mercury, the Moon and the Earth. These seven planets specific their seven vibrational frequencies or Rays by means of the seven chakras alongside the backbone to assist and nurture bodily, emotional, psychological and non secular life on this planet. The Pleiades is located within the constellation of Taurus, the signal of dense matter and of eventual illumination. Via the affect of Taurus, the aspirant presses on and eventually develops the flexibility to “see”. From the cave of this dense matter, the Christ -child is hidden and is later born. The energies of the Pleiades are instantly linked with the event of the persona and, subsequently, work most carefully with the Human Kingdom. The Pleiadean influences later transfer the aspirant from the Path of Probation to the Path of Accepted Disciple.
These three forces of the Nice Bear, Sirius and the Pleiades, working by means of the Monad or Spirit, Soul and Character facilities, distribute their energies by means of the twelve indicators of the zodiac below the affect of the seven planets. These twelve indicators fall into two classes. Seven of those affect the evolution of planetary consciousness on our planet. The opposite 5: Most cancers, Leo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces, instantly affect the event of the 5 continents of Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and America.
The twelve indicators may be configured to type three crosses expressing the triplicity and quadruplicity of the zodiac for each perfected soul that should cross by means of the metamorphosis of the Cross. The weather of Air, Earth, Hearth and Water make up the 4 arms of the Mutable, Mounted and Cardinal crosses. These three crosses signify the crosses that stood on the Mount of Golgotha on which Jesus died.
The 4 arms of the Mutable Cross are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. This cross is known as the Whirling cross, the cross of fabric change and of the Hidden Christ. Due to its mutable high quality it offers the aspirant the fluidity between the pairs of opposites till it takes maintain of the soul vitality. The toddler consciousness of the aspirant is nurtured and offered the chance to maneuver from the animal soul to a real aspirant. Symbolically, the Mutable Cross represents the unrepentant thief and the persona improvement of the disciple. It’s within the decrease facet of this Cross that the Nazi selected this image as theirs, thereby, expressing on the finish of the fabric cycle of human existence, the false and evil use of matter of which separateness, cruelty and selfishness are key. The whirling “swastika” lastly flings the aspirant onto the cross of chosen crucifixion, the Mounted Cross of pledged discipleship.
Mutable or Whirling Cross
When the soul has grown in maturity, it mounts the Mounted Cross often known as the Cross of the Crucified Christ. The 4 arms of the Mounted cross are Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. The person who ascends this cross does so by alternative and with full information and cognition of the Path he has determined to tread and with all of its implications. He is aware of that there isn’t a retreat and so he locations his toes firmly on the Path of Return. Symbolically the Mounted Cross represents the repentant thief and the Hierarchy or Soul expression.
The Mounted Cross
Having skilled the deaths of the persona and the Soul on the 2 earlier Crosses, the aspirant now ascends the Cross of Religious Demise upon the 4 arms of the Cardinal Cross. Libra, Capricorn, Aries and Most cancers takes the now Provoke on to the Limitless Means of Revelation. This state of achieved enlightenment marks the start of his Cosmic Lifetime of service on the “Larger Means” with all of the members of his group. That is the cross of the Risen Christ and all those that stand with the Father at Shamballah.
The Cardinal Cross
When the affect of all 4 arms of every of the three crosses has produced an impact within the disciple, a transition in consciousness is constructed from one cross to a different. Every transition marks a degree of disaster within the lifetime of the person on his Path of Return. The Seven Rays or streams of pressure conditioned by the seven energies of the Nice Bear and the Pleiades give us the astrological framework inside which to work out our personal salvation.
The travels of humanity by means of the indicators of the solar and all of the Stars of the heavens mirror the struggling, triumph and the miracles of the illuminated man earlier than and after Initiation. It’s this problem for the soul to consciously set up the connection between the divine intent for man’s liberation and his bodily expertise in matter that beckoned us right here.
