The Ancient Mysteries
From Volume 3 Where Were You before The Tree of Life? Volume 3
Chapter 22 --The Ancient Mysteries

"From a Worm to a Butterfly and beyond,
and like a Phoenix rising from the ashes of Eternity."

"Spread out beneath them, the explorers saw a world swarming with
life. For years they studied, collected, catalogued. When they had
learned all that they could, they began to modify. They tinkered with
the destiny of many species, on land, and in the seas. But which of
their experiments would bear fruit, they could not know for at least
a million years.
"They were patient, but they were not yet immortal. There was so much
to do in the universe of a hundred billion suns, and other worlds
were calling. So they set out once more into the abyss, knowing that
they would never come this way again. Nor was there any need: the
servants they had left behind would do the rest.
"On Earth, the glaciers came and went while above them the changeless
Moon still carried its secrets from the stars. With a yet slower
rhythm than the polar ice, the tides of civilization ebbed and flowed
across the Galaxy. Strange and beautiful and terrible empires rose
and fell, and passed on their knowledge to their successors.
"And now, out among the stars, evolution was driving toward new
goals. The first explorers of earth had long since come to the limits
of flesh and blood; as soon as their machines were better than their
bodies, it was time to move. First their brains, and then their
thoughts alone, they transferred into shining new homes of metal and
gemstone. In these they roamed the Galaxy. They no longer built
spaceships. They were spaceships.
" . . .But no longer were they always obedient to the mandates of
their creators; like all material things, they were not immune to the
corruptions of Time and its patient, unsleeping servant, Entropy.
"And sometimes, they discovered and sought goals of their own.
The prologue to Arthur C. Clarke's novel 3001, reads like a history
of the Universe as we have been following it. The alien races who
have left their seed here, who have left their advanced knowledge
here, who have 'tinkered' with our genetics, have not helped us in
any way. They have only left behind them Chaos. And one thing more. A
fertile breeding ground for Lucifer.
Since the ancient mysteries form the basis for all of the religions,
sects, and brotherhoods that have been established both prior to and
also after the Flood, it is necessary here that we go over some of
the aspects and history of these ancient mysteries to add to what we
have already covered.
Once again, it is necessary to remind ourselves that the
word ?occult' means no more than ?hidden' (thus esoteric), yet we
need to ask why such things would be hidden, and what kind of God
would want his teachings ?hidden?' This seemingly simply
word, ?hidden', also implies that there are those who
are ?privileged' to be able to know these ancient mysteries, and
those who aren't.
And what is it these people who know and control these ancient
mysteries want to do with this information? In a Universe where there
are really only two forces and two reasons for action, is it out of
Love that these illuminated ones wish to know this information and
share it with the world? Or is it for the Power and control they can
have over others by using this ?secret' information? We suggest in
looking at the organizations who claim to possess this knowledge,
that it is the latter. And we shall prove this in the upcoming
Now that we have a motive established, what is the crime? We have
explained that the act of Creation was not as simple as waving a
magic wand. It is indeed a very intricate scientific process which
follows natural laws. The primary law of the Universe is the Law of
Balance. Everything in Creation strives to be in balance. In biology
it is called ?homeostasis', the overall desire or tendency of
biological systems to maintain a state of equilibrium. This tendency
ranges from systems of internal balance in individual organisms to
ecological patterns of balance in a community of organisms, as can be
seen in the balance between the numbers of predators and prey in the
wild. The so-called Gaia hypothesis of the earth as a living
organism, which gained great popularity in the 1980s, can also in
some ways be regarded simply as an extension of the homeostasis
Living in the lower worlds of duality as we do, we have come to think
of balance as a balancing of extremes. Meat and sugar in our diet are
a good example. When most of us eat meat, we crave something sweet.
This is because meat and sugar are a balance for each other in the
body--extremes in the vibrational quality of foods?yin and yang. So
when most of us eat our normal diets, our body swings from one
extreme to the other like a pendulum in order to eventually stay
maintain this precious balance. When we eat brown rice, which is a
fairly balanced food on its own, our body does not go from extreme to
extreme, but finds its balance comfortably in the middle of the
pendulum arc.
Spiritual balance, as many masters will tell you, comes from neither
being for nor against anything, but remaining comfortably in a
neutral place, thus allowing for positive or negative balance to flow
in when one goes too much to either side, and being accepting of it.
Our purpose in Soul is not only to balance our karma (our balance of
payments) from lifetime to lifetime, but to actually rise above the
worlds of duality and karma. If we do everything in the name of the
true spiritual FATHER, and act with this intent, we can create for
ourselves a karmaless state, that some religions call ?enlightenment'.
Those who seek to use the ancient mysteries seek mostly to use the
powers of the occult, and indeed, this is the power of the ?hidden'.
A science-fiction movie made a few years called The Hidden is about
an alien that lives inside people and seeks only to destroy first
that which it fears will harm it, and seeking ultimate control. This
is a great metaphor for the hidden aspect of the ancient mysteries
which create this desire for power in the people who wish to have the
knowledge without also attaining the true spiritual balance needed to
use it.
The ancient mysteries in and of themselves are not ?evil', it is only
their use by unbalanced people that makes them dangerous and ?evil'.
In Egypt, Ra acquired the epithet Amen, "The Hidden One." Yahweh was
also given the same title. Lucifer is often referred to in his
various forms as the ?hidden god'. One may think that by using these
powers they are using the occult powers of Creation without any
incurred debt to that Creation. This is not true, for the occult
powers and their ruler, Lucifer, live upon others' energies, and like
the alien in the movie, they do the using. This is known at the
highest level of each and every one of these organizations, but is
often kept from the individual lower members.
All of the ancient mystery cults and religions on this planet have
their roots in Atlantis and Lemuria with the knowledge brought to the
planet by the Sirians and other sundry allies--especially the Men
from Orion. It is this knowledge and these kind of groups who once
came to rule Mars and Maldek, as well as Atlantis and eventually
Lemuria. They have now pretty much consolidated their hold on the
rest of the planet as well. The result has always been the same?
darkness, destruction and death.
A recent archeological discovery of a remarkably well preserved male
body was found in a bog in Scotland. To those who studied it, it was
called Lindow man. Scientists were able to determine that Lindow Man
had died in about the second century BC, and that he was between the
ages of twenty-five and thirty years old at the time. He was of
medium height and powerfully built although he lacked the pronounced
musculature peculiar to a warrior. He had the smooth, unroughened
hands of someone belonging to an elite social class. His body offered
many clues about his life but none as startling as the evidence it
revealed about the nature of his death: Lindow Man bore distinct
signs of being ritually murdered.
This suggests, as most secret societies will attest, that secret
sects, cults, societies?whatever they want to call themselves, have
been around at least since that early period of time. Most, whether
past or present, follow a tradition of tracing their ancestry back to
the so-called mystery cults or religions that thrived in the ancient
Mediterranean world. These cults of Eleusis, Dionysus, Isis and
Osiris, and others, were religious in nature and are said to have
grown out of a widespread desire for an individualized faith that
could assure its followers of ?immortality'?such as we have learned
the effects of ?shem-an-na' give to one.
In ancient Greece, religious festivals were often combined with
official functions of the city-states, such as agricultural
observances. This blending of religion and politics forged a strong
sense of cultural solidarity, but it left the spiritual needs of many
unfulfilled. The mystery cults attended to these unsatiated needs.
Followers of Dionysus achieved union with their god through drink and
dance, the indulgence of base impulses, and freedom from inhibitions.
Cult rituals included orgiastic festivals along with prayers and
sacrifices to the god of licentiousness. Eventually, as a means of
neutralizing its ecstatic bent, the sect was apparently incorporated
into a large number of existing state cults?the one at Eleusis, and
also an ascetic religious movement called Orphism.
The cults of Dionysus and Orpheus enjoyed their greatest following in
Italy where they and other imported sects vied for the Roman soul. By
the first century BC, Rome had become the commercial center of the
Mediterranean, a cosmopolitan capital teeming with people and ideas
from the far reaches of the ancient world. The mystery cults captured
the imagination of the empire, and particularly compelling was the
cult of Isis and Osiris, the Egyptian sect that dated from the time
of the Pharaohs and before.
The Roman writer Apuleius was probably describing his own initiation
into the mysteries of Isis and Osiris in Metamorphoses, his famous
second-century-BC treatise. The hero of the story, Lucius, commenced
his induction with priestly instruction from the Egyptian Book of the
Dead (also sound-encoded). After a ritual bath and head shaving,
Lucius was led by a priest into the Temple of Isis where he stood at
the feet of the goddess and was told "secret things unlawful to be
uttered." For the next ten days the initiate abstained from meat,
bread, wine, and sex. Then, on his initiation night, Lucius was taken
to the most sacred part of the temple to participate in a mystic
drama reenacting the search for Osiris's body. Apuleius goes on to
tell how, at midnight, the neophyte was struck speechless by a shaft
of light that seemed to appear out of nowhere. "I saw the sun
brightly shine," Lucius recalls in awe. "I saw likewise the gods
celestial and the gods infernal, before whom I presented myself, and
worshipped them."
The similarities here to Freemasonry and to the Cult of the Black
Mother spoken of in the last chapter, as well as to so many other
modern day ?secret societies' is remarkable?but, of course, even
Freemasonry boasts that its roots go back long before these time. It
is interesting to note the coincidence of the dating of Lindow man
with this excerpt, both from the 2nd century BC. What Apuleius means
by the ?gods infernal' is not clear, but one could probably have a
good guess and still be fairly accurate.
Even the Sadducees of Biblical times were ?a select group' of
priestly and aristocratic families, interpreting the law more
literally than the Pharisees, and dominating the Temple worship and
its rites of their time, including the sacrificial cult. The
Sadducees were, let it be said, unpopular with the common people.
What these secret societies and occult groups remind us of is the
story of the Trojan Horse that caused the fall of Troy. Like the
horse, these teachings and elect brotherhoods may seem like a gift to
those seeking to satiate their needs for mystery in their religion.
Like the people of Troy, they welcome them without question, until
one day the Athenian (the enemy) pops out of the Horse, throws off
his disguise and claims his victory and his reward. Very much it is
the Hidden One within us who then takes control.
The most common feature of these sects and cults and Brotherhoods is
that it is the leaders, most of whom are unknown to the mass of the
followers, who are the only ones that know the true purposes of the
rituals and who the group really serves. Like the modern-day ?Pyramid
scheme', it is only the highest echelons who truly reap the benefits
of the scam, leaving all the others drained and downtrodden.
Over the course of history, many mystery cults have come and gone,
but the followers do not just go away. Most often one group will be
absorbed into a larger and more complex secret society, and so on.
Like the multi-national conglomerates of the New World Order itself,
they disguise their complete control over every aspect of life
by ?hiding' behind the smaller companies or organizations with a
somewhat smaller and a more ?personal' face to offer.
According to the Oriental Rite of Memphis, an Egyptian sage named
Ormus, for example, amalgamated pagan and Christian mysteries into
the one group around AD 46, and in doing so, founded the Rose-Croix?
the well-known Rosicrucians.
There were, and still are, many parallels between Christianity and
these mystery cults. At the heart of the Mithraic ceremony in the
cult of Mithraism was the sacrifice of a bull and the initiate's
baptism in its blood. Mithraism recognized seven degrees of divine
knowledge. Members could then advance from one degree to the next by
undergoing a special initiation and tests of courage and stamina at
each stage. The seven ranks corresponded to the seven known celestial
planets, the seven major in-body chakras, and scaling them was a
Jacob's Ladder-type metaphor for the passage of the soul through the
planetary spheres toward heaven.
The two religions, Mithraism and Christianity, competed for dominance
in the Roman Empire. The symbolic death and rebirth of the sun in its
rising and setting, symbol of the sun-god Mithra, recalls Jesus'
death and resurrection. Moreover, the Mithraic festival in
celebration of the sun-god's birth was held on December 25, now
recognized as Jesus' birthday. Both religions included a baptism and
a sacrament of bread and wine, and both guarded their central rites
from non-believers: The Christian's Eucharist, in which the worshiper
takes bread and wine as the body and blood of Christ, was itself
a "mystery" originally performed only for those ?instructed in the
Lord's ways'.
In her explorative writings, Barbara Clow gives us a glimpse of one
of these members of an ancient mystery cults working on control of
the planet today:
"Keepers of Evil such as myself are masters of the ancient technology
of power. . .we are all reincarnated high priests of Amun. We slither
along like lizards in gray flannel suits in the military and in the
CIA, in politics, in secret societies, and in greedy roles in
business. Lately, we have enjoyed mimicking indigenous people by
lying about our family backgrounds and becoming fake medicine women
and men. . ."
One of the centers of the mysteries, and of the mystery schools, was
the Great Pyramid?that masterpiece of Sirian and Orion technology. It
should be understood that the Great Pyramid of Egypt has been and
still is a temple of initiation into the mysteries. Jesus, Solomon,
Apollonius, as well as many others were at one time initiated there.
Within it were initiation chambers as explained earlier, and it was
used for transportation of both the ?physical' body and of the
consciousness into the higher worlds. Within its construction and
alignment are reflected many of the physical principles and geometric
laws that were used in the formation of the Universe. The major
symbol of the Freemasons is the square and the compass surrounding
the letter ?G'?standing, on one level, for god as the Divine Geometer.
When one takes a serious look at the way the square and compass are
arranged in the Mason's symbol, they actually form the hexagram made
up of two equilateral triangles that is commonly known as the Star of
David or Solomon's Seal. This symbol denotes the unity (if not the
harmony) of opposites: male and female, fire and water, earth and
air, hot and cold?the duality of Lucifer. It is prominently used in
alchemy as a sign of "As Above, So Below."
The very word ?alchemy' according to Laurence Gardner, comes from the
Arabic ?al' ( the) and the Egyptian ?khame' (blackness) i.e., the
darkside. Al-khame is defined as the science which overcomes the
blackness, or that which enlightens through intuitive perception.
This is only if used correctly. As with the Left Eye of Horus
training?it takes many years of the Right Eye of Horus training first
(emotional training) before being able to handle the power which this
knowledge can give.
Minerals and crystals, some earthly, some heavenly, were used in the
construction of the Great Pyramid, and form an important part of
focusing or concentrating the earthly, personal, or cosmic energies
involved in the Mysteries. Of course crystals are not in and of
themselves ?evil' either, but can be used for whatever purpose the
owner intends. Some carry with them their own ?positive'
or ?negative' vibration and one should not assume that all or any
particular crystal is good for them without checking inwardly first.
Zechariah Sitchin suggests that the crystals that were once housed in
the Great Pyramid were used for its defense, similar to lasers.
In certain esoteric literature it is said that Stonehenge was
designed to be built of crystal. Fortunately or unfortunately, only
crystal-bearing rock was used. The standing stones in England and
Scotland, the menhires, are crystalline and were cut to specific
proportions to effect a certain resonance, the understanding of which
has been lost to all but a few of those ?initiated'.
The Egyptian Obelisk in New York's Central Park has carvings on it
that have been identified as Masonic symbols from the time of Pharaoh
Thutmosis III (C 1468-1436 BC) ?the great great grandfather of Moses.
Thuthmosis (heir of Thoth) was the founder of an influential secret
society of scholars and philosophers whose purpose was to preserve
the sacred mysteries (from Atlantis). In later times, the Samaritan
Magi were members of the Order, being attached to the Egyptian
Therapeutate, an ascetic community based at Qumran, the place where
Jesus was known to have been born and raised.
It was from Egypt and the practice of the Mysteries there that Moses
(Akhenaten) introduced the concept of temple worship to the
Israelites when he created the Tabernacle at Sinai. Similarly, the
very notion of priesthood was Egyptian?inherited originally from
ancient Sumer. Prior to the tabernacle of Moses, the Jewish
Patriarchs had used simple outside stone altars as places of
reverence and sacrifice. These were similar to those erected by Noah
and Abraham, and similar also to those used by the Celts and Druids
who were originally of Jewish extraction.
The two granite obelisks like the one in Central Park which were
originally entrance pillars to the temple at Heliopolis in Egypt,
were later moved to Alexandria in 12 BC. Two similar pillars stood at
the entrance to the Temple of Solomon. The Jerusalem pillars were
called Jachin and Boaz. They were built hollow in order to serve as
repositories for the archival and constitutional rolls of Masonry
(the official reason given). The temple was not limited to the
Hebrew's masculine principle of God: it was constructed largely in
keeping with traditional custom, and incorporated both the male and
female geometric energies. Another obelisk moved from Egypt now rests
in the heart of London as well, and between the two, forms a psychic
energy connection between these two cites and a power over the
intervening spaces ?the ocean which now covers the ancient continent
of Atlantis.
Sacred geometry is at the heart of many of the ancient Mystery
teachings. It is reflected in the smallest forms on Earth, as well as
in the largest concepts known to the Universe. Calculation in terms
of area instead of length was the basis of ancient geometry, and
therefore the ancient Mysteries. The Pythagorean Theorem is
understandable only in terms of square measure. The diagonal of the
double has been widely used for constructing temples and sacred
enclosures. It relates to the Golden Mean proportion of (square root
of 5 + 1) /2 or 1.618. This is a ratio or proportion which represents
the relationship of the macrocosm to the microcosm, and by which all
things in the microcosm are reflected in the macrocosm, and visa
versa. It too is reflected in the expression, ?As above, so below'.
The Fibonacci series of numbers in which each successive figure is
the sum of the previous two is a fundamental principle in the
structure of plant and animal organisms.
Sacred geometry is also reflected in all the workings of the secret
societies. The symbolic Round Table of the Grail, for instance, had
its origins in the Circle?the ancient representation of wholeness.
The famous figure of the Vitruvian Man?that of a circle encompassing
man emblematic as a five-pointed star?is a figure from which, using a
square and compasses, one can derive all other geometrical figures,
each in precise relation to the others. From the earliest times, hut
circles, fairy rings and megalithic temples were all Round Tables of
Cosmic Unity. Allegorically, the Round Table is the table of
Intuition, the Square table is that of intellect, and the rectangular
table is that of Mysticism.
The system of measurement much to be preferred is that which is based
on the number 12 and counts in feet and inches rather than in meters
(and the old pounds, shillings and pence system of English currency
as well). Indeed, adepts in sacred geometry and metrology tend to
regard the meter as nothing more than a ?fashionable folly' because
of its determined adherence to tens and hundreds. The decimal base of
10 leads to inevitable inaccuracies and such things as recurring
decimals. It is representative of the chaos that Lucifer has
delivered to the world in keeping Soul restricted to the lower ten
dimension rather than allowing for the advancement into the twelve
dimensional system which represents our true spiritual nature.
Universal Measurement is much more accurately founded on a base of
12, which of course is divisible by five of the first six numbers and
provides a more flexible foundation for numerical calculation than
does 10. Similarly, geometry that is founded upon a decagon is
inherently unstable. The cardinal factors in sacred mathematics are
3, 4, and 12. This book is based on 3, 4, and 12?nine chapters in
four volumes making 36 chapters or 3 times 12.
We have already dealt to some extent with the use of crystal
technology by the sources of the ancient Mysteries, and the use of
crystals by the Atlanteans, and the harmonic creativity they were
able to obtain from their central crystal in the early days when used
in tandem with the Atlantean Temple Form. This will also be covered
later when talking about the Crystal Skull as we explore the deeper
significance of its connection to the secret societies. In the
interpretations given about the origins of the Mitchell Hedges skull
by some noted psychics, we get a further insight into the
potentialities involved with using crystals. We do not need to add
whether these specific facts mentioned about the Skull are correct or
not, for now we are simply looking here at the potentials of
crystalline uses:
"Adamis: We are going to relate to you the reality of the presence of
the crystal skulls upon the planet Earth. In totality there were
originally 22 that were created out of pure energy, and in one of
your terms, apported to Earth. Several of them were brought by the
ancient Lemurians, several brought by the Atlanteans, those who
descended in the ships into the bowels of Earth to begin the
reconstruction of these civilizations. They were created as keepers
of records. They contain energy patterns that record the history of
the construction of your universe, and of descending hierarchical
figures that faced the Universe in Divine Order.
"The one that most of you have viewed this day (the Mitchell-Hedges
Skull) was given to the ancient Mayans almost 1,500 Earth years
ago. . . It was presented to them as a connecting link between the
source of their souls and Love to remind them of their identity and
to make available to them, when their consciousness became
compatible, information that they could utilize in the proper
construction and preservation of their civilization" (the rebirth of
the Atlantean phoenix as already mentioned).
All of the mystery cults contain some form of promotion for the
initiates, usually from one degree to another, signifying a greater
depth of understanding of the mysteries involved. In the Gnostic
document found at Chenoboskion in Egypt known as The Treatise of
Hermes Trimistegus, it states: "It is thus by degrees that the adepts
will enter into the way of immortality, and will attain to a
conception of the Ogdoad, which in turn reveals the Ennead." The
Ogdoad (the eightfold) corresponds to the heavens of the stars
outside the individual heavens of the planets, and the Ennead (the
ninefold) refers to the greater outer heaven of the universe. The
separate heaven of Earth itself was called the Hebdomad (the
In the hermetic lore of the ancient Egyptian mystery schools, this
process of achieving enlightened consciousness was of express
importance, with spiritual regeneration taking place by degrees
through the thirty-three vertebrae of the spinal column until
reaching the pituitary gland which invokes the pineal body. The
science of this regeneration is one of the "lost keys" of
Freemasonry, according to Manly P. Hall, and it is the reason why
ancient Freemasonry was founded upon thirty-three degrees.
Hermes Trimistegus was the Greek Neoplatonist' name for who we now
know of as Thoth, the Egyptian god revered as the founder of alchemy
and geometry. The significance of Hermes was that his special
knowledge was held to represent the "Lost Wisdom of Lamech', Lamech
being the seventh in line of succession from Adam's son Cain (Genesis
4:18?22). Just as Noah saved various life forms from the Great Flood,
so Lamech's three sons, Jabal, Jubal and Tubal-Cain, are said to have
preserved the ancient wisdoms of creative science, carved upon two
stone monuments?the ?Antediluvian Pillars'. One son was a
mathematician, the second son a mason, and the third son a
metalworker. Hermes is said to have discovered one of these pillars,
transcribing its sacred geometry onto an emerald tablet that was
inherited by Pythagoras, who also recovered the second pillar.
The underlying principle of Hermes Trimistegus was ?As above, so
below', which denotes that the harmony of earthly proportion is
representative of its universal equivalent ? that earthly proportion
is the mortal image of cosmological structure. From the smallest cell
to the widest expanse of the galaxies, a repetitive geometric law
prevails, and this was understood from the very earliest times. The
understanding and utilization of this principle allows for the
control of both the physical and the supra-physical worlds if one so
Alchemy is another standard feature of most of the cults based on the
ancient Mysteries. The old alchemic texts affirm that the keys to the
secrets of matter are to be found in Saturn. By a strange
coincidence, everything we know today in nuclear physics is based on
the definition of the "saturnian" atom. According to Nagasoka and
Rutherford, the atom is "a central mass exercising an attraction
surrounded by rings of revolving electrons."
It is now becoming evident that there are also infinitely complex
structures in the interior of the neutron and the proton, and that
the so-called "fundamental" laws, such as the principle of parity, do
not apply to the nucleus. We are beginning to hear about concepts
such as "anti-matter," and of the possible co-existence of several
Universes within the midst of our own visible Universe, thereby
hinting at the similarities between the microcosm and the macrocosm.
Indeed, each of the planets has its own various and sundry effects
upon this planet and the energies that support it. This is the idea
behind astrology. Trevor Ravenscroft and Tim Wallace-Murphy, in their
book Mark of the Beast, relate how the various planetary Oracle sites
were once situated on ancient Earth energy points:
"The Mercury and Venus Oracles of the Druids were situated within the
Earth Chakras where the cities of Toulouse and Orleans now stand.
Above these ancient mystery grottoes today stand their respective
"The Notre Dame de Paris was built beside the Seine on the ancient
location of the Mars Oracle, while the Notre Dame in Amiens rests
above the grotto where the Celtic priests once initiated their
novices into the sublime mysteries of the Jupiter Oracle.
"Rosslyn Chapel, which was originally planned as a great cathedral,
now stands upon the sacred site of the Saturn oracle. Even before the
advent of Christianity, Druid pilgrims who worshipped the Earth
Goddess journeyed from Iberia to Scotland via these planetary oracles
associating the alignment of the spiritual senses (organs of
clairvoyance) within themselves to the corresponding alignment of the
Earth Chakras on the surface of the planet."
The Cathedral at Chartres, France, has been a focal point for the
Mystical activities of the Knights Templar for centuries and was
built for them by the FreeMasons for uses similar to that which we
would call a 'Portal'. These areas and structures are generators for
energy fields of transmission through radiance and were initially
designed to magnify the potential energy of the celebrations of the
Mass (in those times the ultimate ritual) out into the surrounding
area as ?a protection or shield for the people'. The times of the
origination of these Cathedrals were dark times for humanity and the
role of the Templars was promoted as that of ?keepers of the Sacred
Ritual energies which bring the Mystical energies of Peace, Joy and
Love (enlightenment) into the lives of the people'. This is not true,
as we shall see when dealing with the templar roots of Freemasonry.
As we have said before, the Earth was designed to be one enormous
temple ? built to harmonize with the universal galactic center (as
are all planets) and with every other planet in its vicinity as well.
The temples built by the various religions and worshipped in by so
man millions of people daily are simply built along the same pattern
of gridworks of that of the planet and indeed of the Universe itself?
only to a lesser degree and on a less powerful scale. Control of the
temple aspect of the planet amounts to building various keys and
locks into the system, keys and locks to which the New World Order
illuminated ones, keepers of the secrets of the ancient mysteries,
now have control or ownership.
In her article Ritual of the Cathedral Portal, Claire Watson answers
many questions that arise about the portals, the control of the
planet, and the ancient mysteries:
"The Law (The Table of Destiny) contained within the Ark of the
Covenant is the secret knowledge the Knights Templar sought at
Solomon's Temple. It is the knowledge with which they built Chartres
Cathedral. I believe this knowledge is the Law of Polarity, the first
principle of creation; the plain of truth; the hearth of the
universe, easily seen demonstrated in a section of a Gothic arch.
Since ancient times (6,000 BCE) polarity has been studied as the
three pillars or the Three Primordial Principles, defined as
positive, negative and neutral. The right positive pillar is Jachin,
the name of the right pillar of Solomon's Temple. The left negative
pillar is Boaz, the left pillar of Solomon's Temple. The right pillar
is defined as positive in Hermeticism; as Male in Kabalism; as Light
in Gnosticism; as Ohrmuzd or Endless Light in Zoroastrianism; as
Light in Greek philosophy; and as Father of Greatness dwelling in the
Light in Manichaeism. The left pillar is defined as negative in
Hermeticism; Female in Kabalism; Darkness in Gnosticism; Ahriman or
Endless Darkness in Zoroastrianism; Dark in Greek philosophy; and
King of Darkness in Manichaeism.
". . . With the addition of the third principle, the central and
neutral pillar, comes the concept of transcendence of polarity. With
the third principle polarity becomes dimensional and gains a plane
surface (that which has length and breadth). The plane surface,
formed by the triangle, was called the "plain of truth" by the
Pythagoreans of ancient Greece because it is the Three Primordial
Principles expressed in geometry as a triangle. According to the
Pythagoreans, the plain of truth is the "hearth of the universe." The
central pillar is neutral in Kabalism; Androgynous in Alchemy;
Hermaphroditic in Hinduism; Intermediate Spirit in Gnosticism; Void-
Negative Space in Zoroastrianism; Air-Fate in Greek philosophy; and
Shadow between like a Wedge in Manichaeism.
"With their knowledge of sacred geometry based upon the geometry of
light, most likely gained from their association with Jewish Rabbis
and mystics who studied ancient Kabala, the Knights Templar returned
to France in 1128, after 10 years of study in Jerusalem, and began
construction of Chartres, a small model of the universe and the
archetypal Gothic cathedral and light-matrix in stone."
One of Wilson's students, Frank van der Palen of Holland, shares his
experience of just such a portal:
"I could see an angel with a sword, this must of been Michael,
slicing his sword into the ground. Through the slice came fire, which
formed a portal in the center of Stonehenge.
". . . Then I saw a vortex of clouds building in the portal. It
reached out to me and filled me completely. It went straight into my
heart. I was completely overwhelmed with joy, love, light,
compassion, understanding, trust and awareness. I just enjoyed this
for about half an hour. Then suddenly I saw a hand coming out of the
portal. It held a sword and reached out to me. A voice said; you are
the keeper of the frequency of this domain. It is your task to
prevent other energies from harming this domain. I was given the
sword and told to stand up, hold the sword straight up and to sway
the sword as hard as I could. When I did this I could feel an
enormous power emanating form it. This reached inside of me, but also
went out of it into the sky. It was like there was forming a shield
overhead . . ."
There is no doubt that even the Australian aborigines inherited some
degenerate form of this forgotten science, retained by their
ancestors from the collapse of an archaic, universal civilization,
through which the currents of life essence itself were brought within
human control.
"The knowledge that once made it effective has long since perished:
the aborigines know little of the astronomical and mathematical
system which once inspired the rituals they still practice. They
erect stone circles, no longer as celestial observatories but as
crude instruments of divination, and many other of their practices
indicate that they once shared with the Druids of Britain in the
performance of an educated system of natural magic on which was based
a great universal civilization. Above all, the aborigines still
remember the mythological routes which, like the leys of Britain and
the dragon paths of China, run in straight lines across their
continent, linking the holy places and centers of ritual."
Not only were groups studying the ancient mysteries mixed throughout
history, but so were the teachings. The Christian Cabala, as it came
to be known, combined Kabbalistic beliefs with those of another
popular movement called Hermeticism. A fusion of Greek philosophy and
the ancient religion of Egypt, the beliefs of Hermeticism were
contained in a body of texts known as the Corpus Hermeticum. This
work, whose author is unknown, was named after its principal
character, Hermes Trimistegus (Hermes the Thrice-Great or Thoth,
originator of Orion occult magic). Some occultists claimed that
Trimistegus penned the works, that he was an Egyptian sage living in
the times of the Pharaohs, and that he was a contemporary of Moses.
Others associated him with the Greek God Hermes, whose ancient
Egyptian equivalent, Thoth, was the scribe of the gods and lord of
the sacred books.
The Corpus Hermeticum takes the form of dialogues between
Trimistegus, Thoth, and several other Egyptian deities, including
Isis. Scholars point out that little in the text is truly original,
and that, in fact, much of the Hermetic world view is grounded in the
philosophy of Plato. This really, however, should be the other way
around?for Plato derived much of his knowledge from ancient Egypt,
for Thoth/Hermes and some of these other ?deities' were the Sirian
and Orion Atlanteans who helped start the Egyptian culture in ?Zep
Tepi--the First Time.'
Scholars, however, only look at the words upon the printed page, not
understanding the sound-encoding that is able to transmit learning
and certainly not the ability of these words to entrance or initiate
the reader on a higher level, into the sacred mysteries.
King Ashur-banipal of Assyria in the 7th century BC speaks of the
abilities he has acquired through the use of such sound-encoding:
"The god of the scribes has bestowed upon me the gift of the
knowledge of his art. I have been initiated into the secrets of
writing. I can even read the intricate tablets in Sumerian. I
understand the enigmatic words in the stone carvings from the days
before the Flood (The Emerald Tablets of Thoth). Ashur-banipal
learned as did many others from the most treasured archive of
original civilization?the ultimate godly document of sacred
knowledge: The Table of Destiny."
According to E. Wallis Budge in his translation of The Book of the
Dead, The Table of Destiny tells of "the things which have been made,
and of the things which shall be made." It features also in the
Egyptian Papyrus of Ani.
The Book of Jubilees 8:3 describes signs that are from the Table of
Destiny, and are described as being ?the Science of the Watchers'
which had been ?carved in a rock' in distant times.
In his book, Figuring the Sacred: Religion, Narrative and
Imagination, Paul Ricoeur addresses the issue of how the followers of
a religion see their religious text. Perhaps unknowingly, he also
delves into the workings of how sacred texts can be used to ?hook'
the new convert, and bind to him just as a magic spell would do. As
any good marketing or advertising executive already knows, once one
knows how the human mind works, the rest is easy:
"And so the nature of the text, at least in Christianity, is not
completely hostile to the critical approach, and the fact that we
have four Gospels; we could have imagined a church that would have
said," There is only one Gospel." But in Christianity all the
discrepancies were preserved (even though so meticulously crafted),
and a certain equivocity of the texts was assumed at the beginning
(contradiction keeps the reader guessing and allows for breaks in
thought patterning which allows for deeper programming). No one said
how many days the passion lasted; no one said how many days
intervened between the crucifixion and the resurrection, and so on
(thus allowing for individual interpretation by the preacher
depending upon his audience). Maybe the opaque notion of the sacred
is shattered by this critical activity, it is really the concept
of "sacred" that changes. The text becomes fundamental but no longer
sacred in the sense that you have no right to touch it and to change
it. But what makes the Bible sacred in that sense? And for whom was
it sacred? For all religious texts are not sacred in the same sense.
We have to modulate the notion of sacredness not only according to
different religions but also in the course of the history of these
"Maybe the notion of authoritative texts is different from that of
sacred texts, because "authoritative" means there is a discrimination
between the text that constitutes the founding act of the community
(such as with the Book of Mormon) and those who are excluded from
this founding function. Even if they have a kind of kinship they may
be excluded in this way (as pretty much everyone now is with all
these ?old-time religions'). The Gospel of Thomas is very close, but
it does not belong to the story of the way in which the community
interpreted itself in the terms of those texts. That is what I should
call authoritative but not necessarily sacred . . ."
Why did the Church allow for four versions of the same story? It is
another founding principle of all ancient mystery based organizations
that there are various levels of meaning for each different level of
initiation. What may seem like a paradox to one group at a certain
level of understanding, can be fully understood by those at a higher
level with a broader base with which to understand that paradox. So
it is with their symbolism, allegory, and metaphor. By allowing
contradictory versions of the same story, one is redefining what is
sacred and taking its true meaning away from those who hold such
beliefs. No longer is God sacred, but something open to
interpretation. By doing this, one is also not opening oneself up to
a single set version that can be so easily demolished. Flexibility is
built in with four separate different versions.
The Hermetic branch of the ancient Mysteries saw the universe in
terms of light and dark, good and evil, spirit and matter. Like their
Gnostic contemporaries, practitioners preached a mind-body dualism
and salvation through the possession of true and divine knowledge,
but rarely is their ever mentioned anything to do with the balancing
aspect of the wisdom of the heart.
The new movement also had the universal appeal of magic. Magic?
especially belief in the power of certain numbers, letters and words--
enjoyed a long tradition among both Jews and Christians. The symbolic
white, or ?good' magic, contained in the Christian Cabala gathered
its might in part from that tradition and from a variation on the
popular ancient belief that the universe was constructed of
concentric circles (the Atlantean Temple Form?the microcosm of which
the Universe is the macrocosm). The Cabalists believed in three
worlds. They aspired to rise from the elemental world, through the
celestial world, and on to the supercelestial sphere, where the
powerful Hebrew names of God were kept?the name of Jesus said now to
be the mightiest of all. On each plane of existence there is
a ?secret name of God'. Depending on which energy one wishes to
connect to, one would use these names of God to help lift their
vibration into that particular dimension. The use of the name ?Jesus'
would obviously connect one to the Luciferian energy and the energy
of the mental plane on which his heaven is located. To connect to the
highest energy in this Universe, one would use the word ?HU'. As the
Celts once knew, this is the highest name of God in this Universe.
The same concept and exactly the same names of the spheres are
preserved in the Mormon wedding ceremony where the bride travels
through the three worlds to join her bridegroom in the ?highest'
heavenly worlds.
When the Tree of Life was used in what some term to be
the ?unkabbalistic practice of magic', yet another set of archetypes
was placed upon the Tree. These were expressions of the various
sefirotic principles or symbols, but in the language of the world of
Formation (pure Yezirah). Magic operates in the world of forms, the
magician calling on the symbol or sefirot of that realm to aid him in
his work. These sefirot are regarded as symbols of the inner life and
processes of the Godhead. Because the sefirot are also archetypes for
everything in the world of creation, an understanding of their
workings was said to illuminate the inner workings of the cosmos and
of history.
Nothing is more sacred or more important to the New World Order and
the secret societies that form their individual parts of it than
their symbols! Symbols are keys in time to open locks to various
portals and power centers with which they plan to, and have,
controlled us for millennia. These are also the archetypes and forms
that trigger in their followers and others intense emotions or
suppressed spiritual connections which then rise to the surface to be
used or manipulated in any way the organization then sees fit.
Such use of the knowledge of creating forms and forces will either
draw the magician up into the world of Creation (Beriah), or manifest
below in Asiyyah (the world of action). In plain everyday experience,
the latter magical operation is carried out regularly in propaganda
and advertising and political control which seeks to make the mass
psyche do something in the world of action and hardware. Most of us
practice a form of magic every day when we attempt to influence other
people in our lives or the events surrounding us. This can range from
a work of art triggering emotions in a viewer, to an evocative remark
which exerts a definite pressure on someone or other to do something.
It is commonplace, but nevertheless it follows the principles of
magic, the effect of Formation (yezirah) on the world of Action
(Asiyyah). The popular child's game called Chutes and Ladders in the
United States, Snakes and Ladders in English countries, is a
representation of this cabalistic rise on the Tree of Life to the
heavens and sinking back to Earth.
A fifteenth century illustration from Ramon Llull's Opera Chemica
depicts the Hermetic tee of life with the seven main branches and ten
heads symbolizing the seven planets, the ten spheres of Kabbalistic
tradition, and the various aspects man sheds as he ascends the tree.
A serpent wound around the trunk is variously interpreted as the
wisdom necessary for enlightenment, and the primal energy of the
soul. The figures shown surrounding the tree are seen to be making
pronouncements about the serpent's power.
The Book of Thoth
Thoth seems to be at the very heart of the ancient Mysteries. The
contents of the prized Book of Thoth are still in existence,
describing how, through the process of the mysteries, certain areas
of the brain can be stimulated to extend human consciousness beyond
normal imagining. It does not however, provide the prerequisite
emotional training for the reader to also maintain emotional balance
during the awakening process.
When we hear it said that there is a direct link between Thoth and
Cain, and that Thoth was personally identified with the biblical Ham,
while also in alchemical circles being associated with the priest-
king Melchizedek, it is easy to understand why. It was also said that
Thoth was responsible for the Book of the Dead, that which is read
from before initiation ceremonies such as we have already heard
The Table(t)s of Destiny were understood from legend to give the
bearer authority from Thoth, much like the Spear of Destiny was also
said to do. While the Tablets contain the higher dimensional
learning, the Spear itself as we shall find out is a power symbol of
Lucifer's much like a crown or sceptre might be considered power
symbols of royalty.
To satisfy one's innate curiosity, we have included here a little
more direct information, both about the Emerald Tablets and their
contents. The Tablets of Destiny and the Emerald Tablets NOT being
one and the same thing.
Preface to The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, The Atlantean
"The history of the tablets translated in the following pages is
strange and beyond the belief of modern scientists. Their antiquity
is stupendous, dating back some 36,000 years B.C. The writer is
Thoth, an Atlantean Priest-King, who founded a colony in ancient
Egypt after the sinking of the mother country. He was the builder of
the Great Pyramid of Giza, erroneously attributed to Cheops. In it he
incorporated his knowledge of the ancient wisdom and also securely
secreted records and instruments of ancient Atlantis.
"For some 16,000 years, he ruled the ancient race of Egypt, from
approximately 50,000 B.C. to 36,000 B.C. At that time, the ancient
barbarous race among which he and his followers had settled had been
raised to a high degree of civilization. Thoth was an immortal, that
is, he had conquered death, passing only when he willed and even then
not through death. His vast wisdom made him ruler over the various
Atlantean colonies, including the ones in South and Central America.
"When the time came for him to leave Egypt, he erected the Great
Pyramid over the entrance to the Great Halls of Amenti, placed in it
his records, and appointed guards for his secrets from among the
highest of his people. In later times, the descendants of these
guards became the pyramid priests, by which Thoth was deified as the
God of Wisdom, The Recorder, by those in the age of darkness which
followed his passing. In legend, the Halls of Amenti became the
underworld, the Halls of the Gods, where the soul passed after death
for judgment.
"During later ages, the ego of Thoth passed into the bodies of men in
the manner described in the tablets. As such, he incarnated three
times, in his last being known as Hermes, the thrice-born. In this
incarnation, he left the writings known to modern occultists as the
Emerald Tablets, a later and far lesser exposition of the ancient
"The tablets translated in this work are ten which were left in the
Great Pyramid in the custody of the pyramid priests. The ten are
divided into thirteen parts for the sake of convenience. The last two
are so great and far-reaching in their import that at present it is
forbidden to release them to the world at large. However, in those
contained herein are secrets which will prove of inestimable value to
the serious student. They should be read, not once, but a hundred
times for only thus can the true meaning be revealed. A casual
reading will be given glimpses of beauty, but more intensive study
will open avenues of wisdom to the seeker.
"The material aspect of the tablets: They consist of twelve tablets
of emerald green, formed from a substance created through alchemical
transmutation. They are imperishable, resistant to all elements and
substances. In effect, the atomic and cellular structure is fixed, no
change ever taking place. In this respect, they violate the material
law of ionization. Upon them are engraved characters in the ancient
Atlantean language: characters which respond to attuned thought
waves, releasing the associated mental vibration in the mind of the
reader. The tablets are fastened together with hoops of golden-
colored alloy suspended from a rod of the same material.
So much for the material appearance. The wisdom contained therein is
the foundation of the ancient mysteries. And for the one who reads
with open eyes and mind, his wisdom shall be increased a hundred-

Selected excerpts:
"Found I that time moves through strange angles. Yet only by curves
could I hope to attain the key that would give me access to the time-
space. Found I that only by moving upward and yet again by moving to
right-ward could I be free from the time of this movement.
"Forth I came from out of my body, moved in the movements that
changed me in time. Strange were the sights I saw in my journeys,
many the mysteries that opened to view. Aye, saw I man's beginning,
learned from the past that nothing is new.

It is through the control of this knowledge of the creative forces of
the Universe, and of the science and technology extant in the
Universe, that Man has been enslaved to the Dark Forces of the
Universe during every waking breath of his life from birth until
death and even beyond. The secret societies, religions, and political
power structures of the planet are only the minions of something far
larger and far Darker than they are themselves.
By knowing how to control time, these beings have learned how to
manipulate the future and the past, and even the process of
reincarnation itself. They have set up an agenda which has been
religiously followed for tens of thousands of years, simply because
they knew the future and knew what would take place in this time in
which we are now living?the time of completion of their agenda.
As we shall learn, the great scientists, the great thinkers, even
the great artists and prophets such as Nostradamus, all had access to
this kind of information and were privy to its secrets. Knowing what
you are trying to create makes it much easier to bring that thing
into manifestation. That is what our history is a lie of great minds
and great people, and we the poor unknowing fools not worthy of
access to this ?hidden' wisdom of the Universe.
