It’s been awhile since my last post, I know. But it has been more about deciding what to write about over lack of writing material. I’ve never updated my reading updates sidebar. Yes, I’m still trying to slog through Tragedy and Hope but there are a few other books that I’ve been reading. Mostly the Woo Woo stuff that helps me decode what our crazy elites believe and throw up in our films, art, books and tv shows.
Manly Hall. Manly P. Hall.
I think I almost every teenager knows him and attempts to read his The Secret teachings of all the Ages at some point. I know I did. And it whistled in between my ears like so much light summer breezes. My whole take on it back then was, “Golly Gee”! Of course, I wasn’t “awakened” then. I wasn’t “illuminated”, or whatever the claptrap terms the elites use to make the peons feel hip to their cause.
So yes, everyone into the esoterica at some point picks up Hall’s huge, popular tome. But what they don’t pick up is the more forthcoming, companion novel Lectures On Ancient Philosophy.
I’ve read commentary, at the moment I’ve forgotten who stated it, that certain esoterica books are given very controlled releases. They will come into print and just as quickly go out of print or become very rare. You will never find them in your local library because they are either always unavailable (due to being in another person’s hands), only available in research libraries (can’t be taken out of the library) or just plain stolen from the shelves. This person was exactly correct. I’ve never been able to rent alchemy books from the library. Never. The most important and interesting books I’ve been able to get my hands on have been from used bookstores, specialty bookstores or whenever they come up on Amazon. Lectures on Ancient Philosophy I managed to grab by happenstance from a local Barnes & Noble. I purchased the only copy on the shelf and since then, it has never been restocked.
After reading it, I’m not surprised this book has been given only lightening fast releases. It lays everything you want to know on the line. Everything and WHY.
The book consists of 20 chapters regarding the basic foundation of the gnostic alchemical beliefs. The first five chapters alone are worth the price of the book. He explains the various 7 steps or levels in realization. The meaning behind the The One or Dot, The Beautiful (Line) and the Good (Circle). There are fascinating picture graphs of the 7 levels in various formats explaining what they mean. Chapter 5 touches upon the mania for eastern religious thought and how it annilhiliates the sense of self or diversity. This is important. Because Hall explains why the belief system hates an abhors diversity and individuality.
Through each chapter, Hall explains the reasoning behind WHY the elites believe what they believe. The penultimate chapter reveals Freemasonry to be hodge podge of disparate beliefs such as Dionysus worship or the Roman Collegia. He notes that Freemasonry is a much easier system compared to its forebears which caused actual death if initiates failed the testing systems.
Ultimately, he reveals that Freemasonry is possibly Luciferian in nature.
“The Templars had discovered part of the great arcanum; they had become wise in those mysteries which had been celebrated in Mecca thousands of years before the advent of Mohammed; they had read a few pages from the dread book of the Anthropos, and for this knowledge they were doomed to die. What was the black magic of which the Templars were accused? What was Baphomet, the Goat of Mendes, whose mysteries they were declared to have celebrated? All these are questions worthy of thoughtful consideration by every studious Mason.”
Manly Hall, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, pg. 439
Hall doesn’t follow up on this little tidbit. But the implication that Freemasonry has connections to Baphomet worship is there in plain print. Now Baphomet is a mixed symbol. It was a symbol born of the fertile crescent culture and represents man breaking free from his animal nature to a more enlightened state alchemically speaking. But in recent history it has been used by Luciferian systems to denote that only Satan or Lucifer grants enlightenment. How the Freemasons use this symbol is only known to a few inside the lodge. But granting it’s Anti-Christian/Catholic past, Malachi Martin notes in his book The Jesuits that the Freemasons were the reason why the Society of Jesus was disbanded on July 21, 1773, it should give one pause. Why were the Freemasons of the time so convinced that the Jesuits were anathema to them? What was it about the Jesuits that represented competition for them? This led to my next step in my studies, St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises. The foundational requirement of the Jesuit order consists of a four week program meant to enlighten the initiate into a greater understanding of God. Judging by what I’ve peeked at so far, it looks a lot like the exercises used in such works as Franz Bardon’s Initiation into Hermetics and other Alchemical works. Now I do not know if Ignatius was familiar with Alchemy but he did live during the time when this information was released into European culture. Before he became a priest he was a Knight with a wild streak. So it wouldn’t be too far to assume that he had some contact with the systems and they later influenced his grand work. The Spiritual Exercises is yet another work that is hard to come by in libraries or bookstores. In some esoterica, it is mentioned as a wonderful guide to enlightenment. Malachi Martin notes in The Jesuits, that this seminal book by Ignatius wasn’t hidden by the Society. In fact they encouraged its use among the Laity. I believe the Spiritual Exercises were what angered the Freemasons. The last straw was that their “secrets” were being released to the profane by the Society of Jesus. Hence the disbanding in 1773.
Now the last chapter of Hall’s book is where it everything is on the line. The goal of our “philosophers” is nothing less than the new world order.
“The age of boundaries, is closing, and we are approaching a nobler era when nations shall be no more; when the lines of race and caste shall be wiped out when the whole earth shall be under one order, one government, one administrative body”
Manly Hall, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, pg. 463
Of course, this grand, united, world order MUST have rulers. You can’t expect us unwashed peasants to live in freedom. Oh no!
“Men are truly free only when, governed by the wise, they are inclined gently toward the perfection of their own natures. Men are truly great only when, admitting the supremacy of the wise, they offer both life and chattel to the service of integrity”
Manly Hall, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, pg. 464
This is what the elites truly believe. That they are the wise that Hall writes about in this book. I suppose Hall never assumed that this elite he so lauds would be irredeemably corrupt. But then again maybe he did know and it did not bother him. Hall then lays out how this grand, elite philosopher king new world order would be achieved. By breaking educational systems and political systems. By using diversity to break the dominant culture and then people will realize they are all one.
The reason why we need a new world order?
“Only when the world is ruled by its best balanced intellects can we expect it to be well-ruled. We have never had a sufficient number of illumined leaders to permit the smaller nations a proper and adequate form of government. Only by combining into a single people and choosing the wisest of men – regardless of race or creed – to directionalize the activities of the human race, can we approach that philosophic empire which Bacon, profoundly versed in the theory of government, advanced as the true solution of empire.”
Manly Hall, Lectures on Ancient Philosophy, pg. 469
Note: Hall is referring to Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis.
So there you have it. The ultimate goal in esoterica and why these books are released for only the few. Not because they want to “illuminate” us little folk. But because they need our “permission” for this new world order. According to their natural law everything has consequences. So therefore the elite can’t impose this new world order on us without our consent or our actions. Otherwise they would be hit with the consequences. The reader of Hall’s book is granted a peek at their ambitions because it is assumed, having read that far into the arcane, the reader is greedy enough to consider himself/herself part of the “illuminated” and will automatically support such slavery. But wait, a new world order will do away with such greed because, after all, we are all one. And because the elite understand the arcane, that makes them automatically great, grand and able to lead. The last chapter is truly a study in hypocrisy.
