The Swastika-the most misunderstood symbol of all time

The swastika is an ancient symbol that is found all over the world in ancient traditions. It’s true origin is lost to antiquity, but it is found in many Eastern religions. The word Swastika is derived from Vedic Sanskrit and essentially means “good health or good fortune”. It often thought of as representing the universe, the sun, or the four elements, or four seasons. It wasn’t until the Nazi party adopted this symbol and perverted it that it came to be known as it is today.  It was never meant to be an evil symbol and was looked at as a sacred symbol in the ancient world. In this short video, the swastika is looked at for it’s origins rather than it’s sinister association.

Baphomet-the greatly misunderstood

The Templars were accused of heresy for various spurious reasons, including the supposed worship of the being, Baphomet. This baseless accusation is still being against Freemasons to this very day.  Derived from the Greek words for baptism and wisdom, Baphomet is a symbol that can only really be understood by delving deeply into the Mystery traditions and Gnosticism. The fact that Satanism adopted the Baphomet image has caused further confusion and damage to the Brotherhood. This short, but sweet video helps provide some clarification on the issue.

 

Venus Rising — Revisited

Right as dusk is overtaken by the night, a bright object becomes strikingly visible in the sky. What is that radiant object on the western horizon that shines like a star? Is it a star? Actually, no. It is the planet of Venus in it’s most visible state of the year. During the month of […]

Esoteric Christianity-The Real Teachings of Christ were Hijacked!

Most Christians have no idea that the teachings of Christ contain deep mystical and philosophical teachings that are in line with the lineage of Mystery Schools.  When Christianity was made the state religion in Rome, all other religions that were around the area at the time were either wiped out entirely, or had to go underground.  Anything that contradicted what the ruling monarchy wanted their version of Christianity to represent, was criminalized and violently persecuted. The teaching were twisted into dogmas and used to control, rather than liberate. Many of the original books of the Bible were taken out because they contradicted what Constantine wanted and an attempt was made to destroy them.  Luckily, some of them survived and when studied, paint a very different picture.  In this fantastic article on Esoteric Christianity, you will see how the original teachings of Christ mirror those of other Mystery Traditions. Please check out all of the great articles on this site as well.

The Holy Saints John-Who and What were they?

The Holy Saints John is a phrase that will be very familiar to any Freemason. They are explained in Freemasonry as St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist, which should be familiar to Christians and students of religion as well as John the Baptist and John the Evangelist.  Do they have a deeper esoteric meaning as well? I believe that they do. In this fantastic blog post , the author delves into the fascinating symbolism of the Saints John.  Hope you enjoy! Check out all of the other fantastic articles that this blog has to offer as well. A wealth of information!

Alchemy in Our Time

A nice discussion on the various aspects of Alchemy, from the spiritual to the physical. Alchemy is much more than turning base metals into gold.  It was revered by many of the greatest minds of the time until it was written off as superstition.  What it has to teach is as relevant today as it was hundreds of years ago…if you have eyes to see it.

The Great Awakening

It has begun…or maybe it has been going on for a while and we are just now noticing. The internet age is upon us and so is the inundation of information.  We are bombarded with information both good and bad, real and unreal, true and false, fabricated and non-fabricated.  It’s hard to tell what to believe anymore.  I always like to use the “Follow the money” when knowing who to trust.  Since mainstream media is owned by corporate interest, it goes without saying that they are not going to report accurate news which could tarnish their  relationship with their corporate partners.

With the impending “election” of our next President the media is trying to drive a wedge between us and trying to separate us even more than we already are. By pointing out the differences in people, we feel alienated and discriminated against.  Someone is always made the victim and the culprit.  This method has been used for centuries to keep people down.  Divide and conquer.  This is being used against us every day. It’s everywhere, all around us. It’s much easier to focus on our differences than to focus on our similarities.

Despite all of the negative news/brainwashing that is being spouted by the corporate media, there is a movement growing. A movement through social media that is not accepting the world in the state that is in and moving toward.  Fed up with the racist/fascist/police state machine, there is a movement growing and it will not be denied.  The corporate media is doing it’s best to paint the movement as a trend or as an angry mob of dissenters.  A mob that wants to ruin our supposed state of peace and values.  This is clearly attempting to paint the movement in a negative light and to try to add distance between it and the common individual. While this may be working on some, it doesn’t seem to be deterring the movement. It seems that every day, more and more people are questioning the way our government is being run.  It is becoming increasingly clear, that they whole system is a fraud.  When this becomes the consensus among the majority of Americans (which it is headed toward), it will no longer be tolerated and change is inevitable.  The question is, will it happen in time?

It seems that the Powers That Be are pushing us toward martial law and a police state that only has the corporate interest in mind. Since our government and officials are clearly controlled by the corporate interest, this is continually pushed down our throats.  The freedom of speech that the internet provides is our saving grace right now.  We should all make it our civil duty to try and propagate information that we feel will help make change in the world.  It may seem to be a small step, but it’s catching on like wild fire.  People are taking notice and the Powers That Be are scared.  That is why they are ramping up the brainwashing and propaganda.  Look for alternative sources for information. Don’t believe everything you read. Do some research and find the biases, but stay focused on the goal of constantly moving forward, but looking to history for patterns. It is up to us and the time is now.  The veil is being lifted and more and more light being shed on the Man Behind the Curtain.  It’s time to forget our differences and focus on our common goals. To live together in peace and to find happiness.  This attitude will be the downfall of the Powers That Be.
