Symbols and Symbolism

Symbols are everywhere, they are so common that we barely notice them. The most common form is the logo. The word logo comes from the Greek word Logos meaning: word, plan and reason among other definitions. Many of the most successful companies and ventures have logos representing Gods; a Google image search using the term logos based on ancient gods may surprise you.

While the meaning behind logos are intriguing this article will focus on specific symbols and how they are used to influence the general public and relate complex messages and ideals. The Evil Eye is known to almost everyone, we have read about it in books and seen it in films and while the public believe it to be an innocuous fictional emblem, it has profound meaning.

A Google image search using the term celebrities one eye symbolism will bring photos of many of the rich and famous with one eye covered, or one eye closed looking through the circle made with the thumb and forefinger. While the meaning of this can be debated, its use cannot. There is clearly a message behind this symbolism.

Matthew 6:22-23 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.

The left eye of Horus is associated with the Moon and its God: Thoth and his right eye with the Sun and its God: Ra.

I will elaborate on this but first a foundation needs to be laid. A Google image search for Masonic Tracing Board will bring images similar to the one above. This is probably the most well-known of the Freemasonic symbols and almost certainly the most misunderstood.

The pillars either side are those of The Temple of Solomon, their names are Boaz and Jachin and they represent opposites. The left pillar is Jachin, the letter S stands for strength and is male, the right pillar is Boaz and the letter B stands for beauty and is female. The chessboard also symbolises duality, opposites as do the Sun and the Moon. The Ladder is Jacobs Ladder the ladder which God and the Angels used to go to and from Heaven in Jacobs dream. There is also a key hanging from the ladder. There are other symbols that are not relevant to this article that I will go into at a later date.

The Chessboard represents this reality and the general consensus that everything is either good or bad, black or white, that there are no grey areas. The pillars mean the same, though in the centre we have another pillar, this is the pillar of wisdom. Above Jachin is the Sun and above Boaz is the moon and in between them is the All Seeing Eye.

Man starts his journey on the Chessboard with base consciousness and the belief that there are no grey areas, that all can be defined using absolutes; good and bad, black and white, each lying in opposition to the other but once he is given the Key he can begin to see things differently. The Hermetic Philosophy teaches that all things with opposites are one thing: good and evil are the same thing, just varying degrees on the same scale. Light is darkness and again, only the degrees vary.

On the path to wisdom, one will realise that opposites can be united so that there is no longer good and evil but a synthesis of both. The pillar in the centre represents willpower and shows us that through the use of our own will we can change bad into good and vice versa. This is the key to understanding that allows us to climb Jacobs Ladder and ascend from the realm of duality to a higher consciousness, where even the Sun and the Moon are merged and become the All Seeing Eye.

This is the All Seeing Eye that is portrayed by celebrities who believe that they are no longer a part of this realm but are looking in from the outside, having been initiated into the Mysteries and passed the first three degrees of Freemasonry. They ascend towards the Sun which signifies both knowledge and the path to the stars, where a Master Mason awaits them to instruct them further.

The Sun represents the God Ra whose symbol is the upright triangle as well as the Christian religions, the Moon represents Thoth and Isis, whose symbols are the inverted triangle, and the Islamic religion. The All Seeing Eye represents Saturn, Judaism and its God: El whose symbol is the upright and inverted triangle combined, making the Star of David or the Pentagram.

While this may seem fanciful and entirely symbolic, it is anything but. At the North Pole of Saturn, lies a hexagon. A hexagon is a two dimensional representation of a three dimensional cube as can be seen in the image above ; the cube itself has profound esoteric meaning. A cube when unfolded makes the shape of a cross and this is the meaning behind The Gnostic Cross, with the circle representing the uniting of the Sun and the Moon and the cross representing the hexagon of Saturn and the path of wisdom.

A cube is also a representation of this three dimensional reality and when the initiates are seen walking within a cube, as is often the case in music videos, this represents the fourth dimension of time. A Google image search using the terms the black cube of Saturn  will show cubes all over the world.  The Kaaba of the Muslim Faith is a giant black cube, the symbol of Islam is the crescent moon, as is that of Isis. This is the basis for the religion known as Saturnalia, an ancient belief system which was celebrated on the Winter Solstice; the shortest day of the year. The celebrations which the modern world calls Christmas are nothing to do with the birth of Christ but have their origins in Ancient Egypt.

Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire with the Edict of Thessalonica. This was done by the emperor Constantine. The persecution of Christians during the previous centuries had failed to stop the spread of Christianity and its followers could not be controlled. When Christianity was adopted by Rome, the Roman gods and beliefs were incorporated and Christianity became something entirely different to the teachings of the Bible.

Perhaps it is coincidence that Santa is an anagram of Satan; which means adversary and Satan represents Saturn. Perhaps it is coincidence that Santa Claus comes from Saint Nicholas and that Lucifer is also known as Old Nick. Perhaps it is coincidence that Christmas celebrations involve practises which are condemned throughout the Bible as being the worst of human behaviours. Or perhaps all is as it is supposed to be.

The Baphomet is another symbol of the Mystery Schools and some of the symbolism may now be obvious. The fire above the creature represents knowledge. Its hand are pointing above and below at moons, this represents the Hermetical principle of as above so below, as below so above. The goat head comes from the Biblical metaphor: Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats. The wings are those of an Angel and signify the merging of man and God. Between the creatures legs sits the Staff of Hermes and represents alchemy. The pentagram on its head represents the all seeing eye and initiation into the mysteries. Written on the disk behind the Staff are the Latin words Solve and Coagula, which mean dissolve and bind respectively, these are opposites being united.

As above, so below, originated in the Emerald Tablets and its meaning is manifold. In the Secret of Secrets Tablet we read: Hear ye now of the mystery of nature, the relations of life to the Earth where it dwells. Know ye, ye are threefold in nature, physical, astral and mental in one. Three are the qualities of each of the natures; nine in all, as above, so below.

This tablet relates to the Hermetic teachings of Alchemy; that we are a threefold being existing on three separate planes of existence, those of the physical, spiritual and mental. Whatever is created on any of those planes will come into being on the others. This is how magic is performed. It is also used to explain the alchemical creation and journey of the soul and interestingly for such a prominent scientist,  Isaac Newton translated this himself:

Tis true without lying, certain and most true.
That which is below is like that which is above
and that which is above is like that which is below
to do the miracles of one only thing
And as all things have been and arose from one by the mediation of one:
so all things have their birth from this one thing by adaptation.
The Sun is its father,
the moon its mother,
the wind hath carried it in its belly,
the earth is its nurse.
The father of all perfection in the whole world is here.
Its force or power is entire if it be converted into earth.
Separate thou the earth from the fire,
the subtle from the gross
sweetly with great industry.
It ascends from the earth to the heaven
and again it descends to the earth
and receives the force of things superior and inferior.
By this means you shall have the glory of the whole world
and thereby all obscurity shall fly from you.
Its force is above all force,
for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing.
So was the world created.
From this are and do come admirable adaptations
where of the means is here in this.
Hence I am called Hermes Trismegist [sic],
having the three parts of the philosophy of the whole world
That which I have said of the operation of the Sun is accomplished and ended.

I will explain this tablet in the coming articles, though I have already given the information needed to understand it. The next article will explain the origin of spelling and how it is used, along with symbols and Hermeticism to control the direction of societies and people.

Mystery Schools – The Great Work

To the Freemasons God is known as Adonai, which simply means Lord. They believe that Adonai and Lucifer are the two aspects of the one God. They believe that Lucifer is the force for good and Adonai the force for evil. The aim of the Great Work is to destroy both aspects and leave the way open to the Heavens above where the “real Gods” dwell.

The story is as follows, the Goddess Sophia (Goddess of Wisdom: Isis) bore a child. She was ashamed of her child and before the birth was discovered by the other Gods she threw her child from Heaven: She cast it away from her, outside that place, that no one of the immortal ones might see it, for she had created it in ignorance. And she surrounded it with a luminous cloud, and she placed a throne in the middle of the cloud that no one might see it except the Holy Spirit who is called the mother of the living.

The child was the God of the Bible, known to his mother as Yaldabaoth, to the Masons as Adonai and to the Christians as Yahweh or I AM. Being alone and knowing nothing of the heavens above and the true Gods, Adonai created the world as the Bible states but is merely a Demiurge. The Free Masons believe that as everything in this realm has it’s opposite; that the opposite of Adonai is Lucifer.

Isis is the Egyptian Goddess of Wisdom, she is Gaia to the Greeks  (the Goddess who brought Order out of Chaos)  Durga to the Hindu’s, Inanna and Ishtar to the Sumerians  Diana to the Romans and as mentioned in a prior article; Mary to the Catholics. Isis is the widowed wife and sister of Osiris and the virgin mother and wife of Horus; hers is the story of the dark virgin birth of God.

As Isis has her different names in the different languages, so does Osiris, he is Apollo, Apollyon, Abaddon, Nimrod, Cronos, Pan and Shiva. Their child Horus, is the dark equivalent of Christ and his symbol is the all seeing eye.

Isis, or Sophia is the lowest of the immortals who resides in the lowest of the Aeons: Pleroma which is one of many heavens where the immortals dwell. The Great Work of Gnostics is to merge Adonai with Lucifer in order that he be destroyed. In doing so, it is supposed that the way to the Pleroma will be opened and mankind will ascend to Heaven.

The story of Sophia et al can be traced to the Coffin Texts of ancient Egypt, which included texts known as the Book of Thoth; written by Thoth the Atlantean. This is the basis for the beliefs of the Gnostics, which is also known as Dualism. Dualism is essentially Alchemy, which in turn is Hermeticism. The stories of men attempting to turn base metals into gold come from those who took that metaphor literally when it simply means to turn man into a god using knowledge.

The knowledge that the Gnostics hold is vast and complex and cannot be reproduced in such a short article, it will therefore be condensed and summarised here. The nature of this realm is dualistic: everything has its nature and that nature has degrees i.e.; we refer to temperature as being hot and cold but there is not a point on the scale of measurement where hot becomes cold or vice versa, yet it has opposites. The same is true of good and evil, it is one and the same thing, which varies only by degree; some things are neither good nor evil but there is no point where good becomes evil nor vice versa.

This is expanded to cover objects; the Sun has it’s opposite which is the Moon, male has its opposite in female and the mind its opposite in the body. In turn everything that exists has its male and female nature and this includes the Gods: Yao: his feminine name is Lordship, Sabaoth: his feminine name is Deity, Adonaios: his feminine name is Kingship, Elaios: his feminine name is Jealousy, Oraios: his feminine name is Wealth And Astaphaios: his feminine name is Sophia (Wisdom). These are the seven forces of the seven heavens of chaos which form the Aeons.

It is the female nature which creates, under the guidance of the male and this brings us to the Mystery of the Trinity. A person has several aspects which make up his whole, they are the mind, the spirit and the soul. The soul is encapsulated within the body, the soul is made of fire and the body; earth. The spirit animates the body and the mind controls all. 

This realm is mental, though it is perceived as physical. Nothing exists that is not in motion, everything is in a constant state of change. All matter is comprised of particles: atoms, protons, neutrons etc, all vibrating at different frequencies. Because this realm is mental, it can be affected by the mind and this is one form of magic.

If we picture something in our mind, a lamp for example; one part of us is able to view this lamp and this is known as the Me, the part that created the image is the female aspect and this is known as the I. Freud calls these the Ego and the Id and assigns them qualities in order to understand human behaviour but human behaviour arises from a lack of understanding of what and who we are and our purpose in this reality.

We are the soul within a body. We are not the body, the body is the vehicle in which we experience this world. The body has its wants and needs and has very powerful emotions. Human behaviour is simply the body following its natural animal urges, without the restraint of the mind. The mind can easily control the emotions, wants and needs of the body by willing it. The purpose of this life is to rule the body with the mind, to exert control where none exists and to become worthy of eternal life.

Being only mind and soul; the ways in which we can interact with this world are limited. We can affect things physically, that is by touching or moving. We can affect it verbally, by speaking or shouting, we can affect it with writing, with letters symbols and drawings and we can affect it with our minds.

Everything that we experience on Earth is experienced solely in the mind. Of course we feel the things that the body feels but it is the mind which has the experience. When we feel sorrow, the body reflects the sorrow, perhaps with tears but it is experienced only by the mind, it does not exist within the world. All suffering is done within the mind, all love is in the mind.

The most common way that we interact with the world is the spoken word. The vast majority of ordinary people pay little to no attention to the words that come out of their mouth and this is the cause of most of the ill in the world. The words that we speak have great power, they have the power to kill and the power to heal. Think of the suicides caused by jilted lovers, think of the speeches by megalomaniacs. Words not only affect the person or people to whom they are spoken but the very world itself.

It is important to remember Newton’s third Law or The Law of Cause and Effect which are one and the same. Every cause has its effect and every effect, its cause. Given the very limited ways in which we are able to interact with the world, almost all of the effects that ordinary people have on the world can be traced back to the spoken or written word. Yet they are spoken (cause) carelessly, with barely a thought to the consequences (effect) which might arise from them.

Matthew 15:11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.

The written word holds far more power than the spoken word and it is no coincidence that as we learn how to write we are taught how to spell. This is not merely semantics, the written word can have profound effects on the world in which we live. One might consider how many Christians there would be without the written words of The Bible, or how society would function without written laws.

The written word holds so much power that we obey a sign which informs us to keep off the grass without a second thought. It is so powerful that every notion we have about the world is passed on through writing. The very fabric of the reality of the world that we are in was weaved with the written word.

Where did we come from? We were taught the answer and shown The Big Bang Theory as proof. The Origin of Species is proof that we evolved. The Gregorian Calendar is proof of our position in time. Every single idea that we hold as truth comes from the written word.

Nothing is real and lasting until it is written down. A child does not exist until it is registered. Money is simply a concept until printed (or typed into a computer). The act of writing words is in and of itself an act of creation.

More powerful than the written word is the symbol and symbols include numbers. A symbol can represent an idea or an entire philosophy and numbers can explain the workings of unseen powers. The Baphomet is a representation of the entire beliefs of the Mystery Schools. The number seven is the number of God and the number of completion. Two symbols are easily able to convey the most mysterious and most powerful concepts known to man.

Numbers, while being symbols, also have their own nature and are the stuff that the world is made from. As aforementioned; the world is mental rather than physical and it is constructed according to mathematical principles. All of the beauty of nature comes from one simple formula: 1.618, The Golden Ratio.

Because the world is built from mathematics, the rules of mathematics apply to it and The Monty Hall Problem is one example of the real world application of maths. In The Double Slit Experiment we see that photons react differently depending on whether they are being observed, showing that the mind itself affects the physical aspects of reality itself.

The Mystery Schools are well aware of the power of symbols and they use them not only as a means of communication but as a means to control. Symbols are magical and they control the world. This will be the subject of the next article.

Part Two – Religion

There have always been Priests. Men placing themselves between the Creator and mankind, acting as an intermediary. The Priests have always ruled men in this way, forcing them to follow absurd practises, which are always contrary to the teachings of scripture, in order that their souls might be saved.

A glance at the Catholic faith will prove the hypocrisy of the teachings: One of the Commandments states Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. The Catholic church has many idols, many statues and many graven images, its very symbol is that of Christ being crucified. The Catholic Church violates the very Commandments of the teachings it supposedly follows.

The Catholic Church has deified Mary, the mother of Christ and refers to her as the Queen of Heaven. This title belongs to another deity entirely, she has many names but the most common is Isis. The Catholic Church has followed in the footsteps of the Priesthood of antiquity, it has used the Christian faith to promote itself and its true religion, in order to maintain control of the people.

This is true of all the religions, not merely the Catholics, though the Catholics have taken things to extreme lengths. The Bible clearly states Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Yet the head of the Catholic Church, who is a Jesuit is called Il Papa, or the Pope; meaning Father. Priests of all denominations of the Christian faith are called father, in defiance of the very scripture they claim to teach.

The Catholic Church, along with many others do not represent the religions that they claim to. Before Christianity existed there were religions which worshipped multiple Gods and these reach back into the beginnings of history. They are often called Pagan religions but this term now embodies many diverse and separate beliefs. The original religions were based upon the Gods who walked among us.

In the beginning we have the Christian God who created Adam and Eve. They were banished from the Garden of Eden and sent into the world to learn the consequences of the knowledge of good and evil that they had learned and He sent Angels to watch over them. The Angels were attracted to human women and made a pact to mate with them. Genesis 6:2 the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

It was these very Fallen Angels and the offspring that their mating with human women brought, that form the basis of the so called Pagan religions. The Bible speaks at length of the fallen Angels and more specifically of Lucifer, who is often known as Satan, though this is not a name but a term meaning adversary.

Lucifer is the leader of the Angels who rebelled against God. He is the most powerful and perfect being that God created. He dwelt with God and was adorned with all manner of precious jewels and was adored by the angels for his perfection. While he sat with God, he remained loyal but the moment he left His side, he succumbed to pride and wanted to be worshipped as God is.

Lucifer and the Fallen Angels are spoken of at great length in scripture. In the Book of Enoch, the leaders of the 200 fallen angels are named and the forbidden knowledge that they gave to humans is listed. The Fallen Angels are known by different names in different cultures because they were translated from the original Hebrew into the scholarly languages of different nations; Greek and Latin, in order that the meaning of their names would be retained.

The knowledge that was given to men explains exactly how the world came to be and how its different parts function. It tells of the laws of this realm and how they can be used in order to avoid the consequences of ones actions. It explains the Mystery of the Trinity and the journey of the soul. It is a guide on how to achieve immortality using knowledge rather than the way God intended.

The knowledge is absolutely real and this explains why the world is run by the followers of the Mystery Schools, who are todays magicians: an image search through Google for famous Masons will show this to be true. The Mystery Schools believe that Adam and Eve were held in bondage by God in the Garden of Eden and that Lucifer freed them of His tyranny:

Emerald Tablet two Far in a past time, lost in the space time, the Children of Light looked down on the world. Seeing the children of men in their bondage, bound by the force that came from beyond. Knew they that only by freedom from bondage could man ever rise from the Earth to the Sun.

The Bible tells that man was created in Gods image and the Angels were ordered to worship the image of God but some refused:

In the Book of Adam we find 12.1 the devil began to cry with forced tears and the devil told Adam, “O Adam, all the greed and the anger and all the grief of my heart are directed against you because it was through you that I fell from my dwellings, (it was) by you that I was alienated from my own throne. My wings were more numerous than those of the Cherubim, and I concealed myself under them. Because of you, now my feet walk on the earth, which I would never have believed.”

And further:

 14.1 Then Michael came; he summoned all the troops of angels and told them, “Bow down before the likeness and the image of the divinity.”

Lucifer believed that because of his splendor man should worship him but man was made in the image of God and because of this the Angels were attracted to men.

 Book of Enoch 6:2 And the angels, the children of the heaven, saw and lusted after them.

The Angels or the Gods of antiquity, were worshipped by men because of the knowledge they held and the Gods stayed among them in order to mate with them. Over time the divinity faded from the offspring of the Angels and human women and they were overcome with darkness and began to practise evil things. Genesis 6:5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Emerald Tablets one: Gradually from the Kingdoms of Atlantis passed waves of consciousness that had been one with me, only to be replaced by spawn of a lower star.

This is what lead to the flood in the account given in both the Bible and the Emerald Tablets. These are the things that no Priest will ever discuss. The Priesthood is interested only in power over men, they have no interest in the journey of the soul and they have no fear of the wrath of God because they commune with their Gods and worship them appropriately.

The teachings of the Priesthood have nothing at all to do with the teachings of the Bible. The Priests teach one verse at a time and explain the meanings as they go. When read from beginning to end, The Bible has a wholly different message, which is revealed very slowly one chapter at a time.

From the beginning; man has always been tempted by knowledge. The oldest recorded lie is told at the very start of our history: Genesis 3:5  For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

Adam and Eve lived in paradise and were immortal until they were tempted with knowledge. The Priests have also been tempted with knowledge as have the initiates of the Mystery School. The knowledge they have is real, as was the knowledge that Adam and Eve received but as with the latter, no good will come of it.

It is a simple thing to deceive a man, show him the truth of one thing and he can be lead anywhere with the promise of more. The knowledge that the Priests and initiates have was given to them in exchange for their worship. They will have what their hearts desire in this life and will follow the ways that they have been taught. Their souls will progress in defiance of the law but eventually they will be held to account. John 10:1  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

It is the job of the Priests to keep men from knowing the Creator, to fill him with nonsense about the ways of the Divine. Priests preach that souls go to purgatory, a made up place with no reference in any scripture. They teach that the living can help a soul move on to Heaven through prayer and donations to the church. Scripture teaches the exact opposite Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

What is this knowledge that I keep mentioning? It is the practice of magic, it is using the existing Law that all things must obey against itself in order to bypass the consequences that one would ordinarily face. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, this is Newton’s third Law. Isaac Newton was a well-known Mystic and the so called Third Law of Physics came from Hermes not Newton. The Law does indeed exist and cannot be broken but by using higher laws against the lower laws; consequences can be escaped.

The magic that is practised all around the world every single day has many layers and much of it is associated with a certain god or gods. I will explain the whole process and reveal the secrets which the Priests and initiates hold sacred but to do so I must first explain their beliefs and the way in which we interact with this world. That will be the subject of the next article.
