“On May 1, 1776, under the direction of the newly formed House of Rothschild, along with Wessely, Moses, Mendelssohn, and the bankers Itzig, Friedlander, and Meyer (who instigated the American Revolution to weaken Great Britain), Weishaupt founded the “Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria” which became known as the “Order of the Illuminati”. Weishaupt said that the name was derived from Luciferian teachings, and means, ‘Holders of the Light.’ In Latin, it means, the ‘enlightened ones.’ In layman’s terms, it means ‘to illuminate,’ or ‘to give light.’ It refers to someone who is enlightened, spiritually and intellectually. Satan, when he was an angel, was known as Lucifer, the ‘Bearer of Light,’ and being that the group’s name evolved from this, we can see the underlying nature of its goals.”
The comet that is known today as 2P/Encke has been visiting us for at least the past 20-30 millenia. With an orbital period of a mere 3.3 years, and a close approach every 33 years, I have to wonder whether the significance of this number in masonic-hermetic lore is in any way connected with this comet. There is much evidence linking this comet (and its companions) to previous events in our solar system and in mythology and I will here, for the first time (so far as I can tell) present evidence that a catastrophic encounter with Comet 2P/Encke is described in the Book of Revelation.
“The sad fact is that although sex, drugs, dancing, and drumbeating are believed to release a lot of gnosis, Satanists believe that sacrifices release more of it than anything else. Such are the dark and sordid machinations of the deluded souls who think their gnosis accumulations and illumination will give them some form of deity or immortality.”
To get an accurate understanding of the development of spiritual ideas, we need to view Gnosticism as an identifiable spiritual tradition which transcends the accepted divisions into regional religions. Those who embrace Gnosticism and have been born into a Jewish culture tend to remain within their national tradition and become Jewish Gnostics, while those born elsewhere tend to become Muslim Gnostics, and so on. But all Gnostics need to be understood as essentially parts of one evolving tradition, whatever their race or culture.
‘If the word government literally means “to control the mind”, wouldn’t learning how to control your own mind negate the opportunity for external government? You see, it is the simple act of asking questions, which illustrates the Achilles’ heel of the control system; you can condition animals, but if humans ask questions, they can learn their way to freedom. If you want to free your mind, you first have to come to understand the process by which words were used to program and control your mind in the first place; thereby you will have the ability to re-write the programming in your own image.’
“The emblematical meaning of the Sun is well known to the enlightened and inquisitive Free-Mason; and as the real Sun is situated in the center of the universe, so the emblematical Sun is the center of real Masonry. We all know that the Sun is the fountain of light, the source of the seasons, the cause of the vicissitudes of day and night, the parent of vegetation, the friend of man; hence the scientific Free-Mason only knows the reason why the Sun is placed in the center of this beautiful hall.” – Thomas Paine (1808)
We perceive in the near future, as has been repeatedly foretold the end of a cycle is at hand in Cataclysmic results; the sinking of land some places; and the rising in others, is imminent. When cities peculiarly situated are crowded with inhabitants, who have lost everything but their own desires centering in selfish purpose, their thought vibrations become inharmonious with the universal thought vibrations. If this disharmony continues strong enough to communicate itself to the ground upon which the city stands, this foundation being subject also, to a set of vibrations upon the natural plane of Liquidity, serious consequences may occur.
The wise man will not go where he is not wanted, nor be so blindly foolish as to attend the funeral of his own joy. He knows the sensitive, delicate value of woman too well. It is only the idiot who is brute enough to intrude his lust by right upon an unwilling wife. He cannot realize that she is not ready, and, consequently, is totally unable to respond to the embrace, or give pleasure. He cares not, and, therefore, obtains nothing but a mechanical union, devoid of all magnetic flow. He becomes disgusted with her, whom his lust has turned into a dead passive instrument, and, in the end creates a train of diseases that medical skill in vain tries to master.
Our daily news, continually, reports all sorts of vicious crimes against God and man. Throughout the whole of this loathsome sphere are numerous races of spiritual beings; many of them possessing the highest forms of cunning and intelligence possible to the animal plane. It is these creatures; who are neither elementals nor elementaries, but treacherous beings; who produce the greatest portion of the suffering and misery which afflicts humanity. The time has now come when certain facts in regard to this orb of evil are for the first time given out to the world “pro bono publico.”
Beethoven’s involvement in Freemasonry and its ideals pointed the way for a new view of music. The impact of such a trend cannot be underestimated. In the history of music, it is one of the most direct and significant catalysts in many aspects of the following era, the Romantic Movement. Indeed, the context in which this phenomenon of deepening and spiritualizing the art of music for its own sake can be more usefully viewed within the larger context of the modernization of the Western world.
