The Transformation of the Mind and the Mysteries of the Kabbalah

What is Kabbalah The word means Tradition. It was believed that when God gave the Law to Moses he gave also a second revelation as to the secret meaning of the Law. This esoteric tradition was said to have been passed down the ages orally by initiates. It was a mysticism and a cult but rooted in the text of the Scriptures, in the Hebrew language, the holy language in which God had spoken to man Dame Francis Yates. As we discussed in earlier chapters the Kabbalah is an esoteric framework which...

Jacobs Ladder

And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. The iconography of Jacob's ladder is central to our understanding of the spiritual...

The Church of Philadelphia

The Church of Philadelphia is the Third Eye or Ajna (Brow) Chakra. It is given the title of Brotherly Love because of the awesome power of its nature. The insight and force of this centre can only be understood when experienced through Agape of Divine Love. Only by truly desiring to return to the Treasury of Light and having true Love for the Pleroma can this force be correctly awakened and experienced. The Characteristic of the city is its ability to grow and spread. This is symbolic of the...

Archons within

The son of the King of Darkness spoke to the daughters of darkness. He cried 'Give me your sons and daughters and I shall make for you a figure of your desire'. They brought them and gave them to him He ate the female ones and handed over the males to Nekbael, his companion. Nekbael became pregnant and bore a son named Adam and a daughter named Havva. (Eve) When Adam awoke, he found himself mingled and imprisoned in everything that exists, shackled in the stench of darkness. Man is a Hybrid...

The Ariosophic Tradition

To understand our understanding of the nature of Scripture we need first to consider the earliest Gnostic teachings. This early Pan-Aryan tradition could be best described as Ariosphic, we use the term Ariosophic with deliberation, it literally means The Wisdom of the Aryans and hence refers to the whole continuum of Gnosis which is linked with the Adamic peoples. In recent times it has become common to link the Aryans with the isolated group of peoples who entered India and other countries...

Church of Pergamus. Church of Thyatira. Church of Sardis. Base Centre. Sacral Centre. Solar Plexus. Heart Centre. Throat Centre Ajna Centre. Desirable. Sweet-Smelling. Elevation & Height. Sacrifice. That which Remains. Agape (love). Judgement. Church of Philadelphia. Church of Laodicea. tion. Before we actually outline the Solar feasts we need to explore the basic foundations on which they operate, these foundations are found hidden within the teachings...

The Church of Thyatira

The Church of Thyatira is the Heart or Anahata Chakra. It is called the centre of Sacrifice or Contrition as it involves the sacrifice of the body and mind to the Higher Self (Yechidah) and to the Lord of Wisdom. The Characteristic of the city is that it was a manufacturing town with a altar dedicated to Apollo. These two characteristics are very important the first represents the power of the heart centre, when properly activated it manufactures static forces which transform the organism. The...

The Mechanism of Reincarnation

To understand the way in which reincarnation works we have to examine the effects of our actions. Now, in generally held Christian views there is a belief that actions do not have an effect, we ask for forgiveness and all is gone. This is obviously not correct, every action has an effect. Even if the moral (and the If is big ) punishment was removed from an act by asking for forgiveness the natural effect of that act remains (For example, I get Hepatitis from a heroin injection, while I may be...

What about Genesis

The only way we can really understand Genesis is to consider the god-names within it, terms such as Elohim are the key. Elohim is plural and comes from EL or Mighty One, it is Cannanite in origin and suggests the polytheism that the word originated in. The term Elohim when used could be easily related to the Gnostic definition of Archon, the Elohim are many, they are mighty and warriors. They are clearly Demi-Gods, Yahweh is one of these Archons. Rather than being a lord of Light the Old...

Conditional Immortality and Reincarnation

The aim of life is to offer man a chance to gain salvation, to enter the path of Transfiguration. Since the fall of man The Lord of Wisdom has outlined an escape route, a path by which man may awaken the Yechidah and grasp the gift of immortality. And immortality is a gift, in all mythologies we find a quest for immortality, a trial that leads to a reward of life eternal. In the twelve labours of Hercules we have a series of initiations which lead to eternal life, while in the quest for the...

Baptism Initiation and The Anointing

He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. Baptism or immersion into water represents the first Initiation on the spiritual Path. It is a ritual recognition of the process of rebirth that has begun. The rite itself is not the same as the rite of Christening, there is no Biblical evidence for the initiation of minors. The rite of baptism is by full immersion into water and represents the descent of the Old man into death (the...

The Nature of Theosis Deification

Central to the Gnostic understanding of humanity is the belief that it is possible for man to become part of the God-Family (Elohim). While mankind as a whole may seem to be in a pretty dismal state at present, the Gnostics have always taught that it is possible for the particles of light to be redeemed, and for those who seek, to find the Treasury of Light. This doctrine of Theosis or deification has been a major part of the Mystery tradition since the earliest days and has survived, albeit,...

The Basic Feasts

Solar Plexus and Heart. Throat significance on the regular rites associated with the Sun and the cycles of the Sun, these included daily and yearly Solar festivities. Since the cycle of the day runs from Sunrise to Midnight the flow of the festivals move from the Spring Equinox through to the Winter Solstice. Each of the festivals within this cycle is related to the flow of Logoic and Sophic forces from the Solar Sphere to man and reflects their effects on man's consciousness.

Multiple Levels of Truth

Inherent within the Mystery teachings is the understanding that Truth is a complex and multi-faceted thing and cannot be reduced to simple doctrine or dogma. Accordingly, within the ancient Gnostic teachings there was a clear understanding that there were (and are) multiple levels on which Truth operates. When St.Paul discusses in Hebrews that there is Solid Food and there is milk or infant food in regards to Truth , he is simply re-iterating the teaching of multiple truth levels. In fact,...

The Evolution of Dominions and Principal ities

For the early Gnostics, the state and authorities were hostile. The powers that existed outside of their communities were considered compromised, destructive and malefic. If we consider the example of the Essenes, they saw themselves at the forefront of a cosmic war between the forces of light (themselves) and the fallen dominions that include physical forces such as Rome and the Jews, and the spiritual denizens of the astral worlds. The Essenes were well aware of the spiritual realities but...

The Great Year

The concept of precession is central to the cycle known as the Great or Platonic Year. It is based on the simple fact that the earth does not sit straight, there is a slight wobble in the earth's axis as it spins. Accordingly the North Pole describes a circle taking 2590 years to reach the point at which it started. As this process unfolds the Vernal Equinox is seen to move backwards through the signs. This backwards movement starts at Capricorn and nnds at Aquarius, the reverse of the normal...

The Fall of the Lifestreams

The Cosmic Battle that necessitated matter was only the first fall of many. There are clearly two falls if we wish to consider the entry of spirits from the First Estate into matter. The fall of the Lifestreams was the final stage in the degenerative process. Originally the Lifestreams entered the earth sphere and began to examine the fallen creation of the Archons. In some sense this was their downfall. At this stage the Lifestream was located on a continent near the North Pole and existed in...

The Secret of the Qadesh

Jesus said When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside, and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below and when you make the male and the female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female female then you Within the oldest Gnostic traditions we find that a further division is made within the spiritual classes. While we have before outlined the hierarchy of races and the evolutionary strata as illustrated in Jacob's ladder, a similar...

The Druid Connection

A classic example is found in the Druidic traditions. It is believed by many that the Druids became the Priestclass of Israel in exile after they had settled in Ireland and England. Many facets of the early Druidic faith resemble what we know of the original Israelite Mysteries. The secret alphabet which the Israelites used was sustained by the Druids and for mnemonic purposes was related to trees and later to Birds and Animals . The Druids also met in outdoor sanctuaries certainly the original...

Celestial Transfiguration

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth in me, the works that I do shall he do also and greater works than these shall he do because I go unto my Father. John 14 12 The calling to the Celestial Path is a special one. It echoes across lifetimes bringing the Parfait to higher and higher levels of development, until, at an appointed time perfection is achieved. This state of Perfection is a unique state of being. It is one where the Gnostic is in tune with the Mind of God Logos and his...

Hylics Psychics and Pneumatics

Leading from this new understanding of what the world, indeed, material creation is made up of, we need to consider how it applies to humanity. In the Gnostic system of Valentinus, the Dominions play an important part in the creation story. Under the direction of the Demiurge they created a whole order of likenesses, copies, shadows and phantasms which take the forms of the world of light, but are dark within. These forms are used to control and degrade the Light Sparks which are locked within...

The Gnostic Secret The Creator is Evil

For the Gnostic matter is evil, it is a prison for the soul. It was not created by the source of light, the Lord of Wisdom, but by a lesser God, a Demiurge. There are many traditions and explanations of how this occurred, it has always been the secret teaching of esoteric and occult orders. In modern Gnosticism we sometimes call this error the primal mistake or the Alpha Event, in some sense this is inaccurate as the contamination of spirit by matter occurred through a sequence or series of...

The Spiritual Hierarchy

To understand the spiritual hierarchy we must first give you some background on one of the major strands within the Gnostic tradition, the Kabbalah. It is said that the Lord of Wisdom first communicated the Kabbalah to Moses and transmitted to him the mysteries of the the Ten Sephiroth of the Tree of Life. However, since Israel rejected these ten words, Moses made a covenant with the Archon Yahweh and he gave them a fallen, physical version in the form of the Ten Commandments. The Kabbalah is a...

The Yechidah

The Yechidah is the potentially immortal part of man and in mans fallen state does not come into action naturally. The average human experiences life through his instincts the soul and through his mind Ruach . The Soul and Mind while of importance, cannot offer a truly discrete, individual self. Ultimately, death, after a cycle of lives and many lost opportunities, becomes the end for most people. Only through the awakening of the Yechidah can immortality be achieved. According to the...

Archons as World Powers

The Archons may exist within us, but they also exist in the world at large. As Memes they can move like viruses through the bloodstreams which make up the collective unconscious of the planet. They manipulate governments, organizations, policy makers and thinkers. They reduce efforts to awaken mankind to minimal effect and encourage anything that leads away from awakening. They feed the conglomerates of business, commercialism and the press and play off ideological opposites so we do not see...

Jesus Christ and Logos

When we come to understand that Jesus is a created being a new picture of divinity arises. Jesus was the first created being, Michael, the first of the immortals created through the power of the Logos. There is one Source of light, the Lord of Wisdom and other created beings formed by the force of the divine mind. Jesus in the first estate before coming into a physical body is Michael, that immortal who plays such an important role in the Cosmic battle we will discuss later. When Michael is...

What are the Aeons

According to the Gnostic traditions these two forces further manifest through a series of forms or entities. These forms can be expressed in many different ways, the most traditional is to know them as Aeons, while in Egypt they would have been called Sacred Principles or Neters. In the Zoroastrian tradition they are known as the Holy Spirits Spenta Amesha . These are akin to the Seven Spirits before the Throne in the Book of Revelation . These forces can, in some sense, be even understood as...
