Twice born

Twice Born in the Secret Inner Temples of Egypt

“Though previously, the shrines of the Twice Born had been concealed in the smaller temples, when Ramsis built the Great Temple of Ramen, it contained within itself both temple and shrine of the All Highest God. Also, there were caverns of initiation underneath. In the hall of the temple, which faced East and West, between pillars of pure stone, was the portal of the outer sanctuary. As the sun rises in the East, to give life to the day, so was the Devoted Priest placed in the East of the sanctuary, to open the services of worship and to instruct. … In the ceiling above the candidates was the symbol of the sun, and from it extended seven hands. They represented the sun of life dispensing the vitalizing forces from their font within the circle of creative consciousness. Behind the priest were representations of the ten rays of power that flowed out of the All Highest God. … They are: Love, Foresight, Wisdom, Insight, All Knowledge, Strength, Resolution, Justice, Mercy and Courage.” ~The Kolbrin Bible (SOF:2:9)

Shrines of the Twice Born

First, I can find no reference to a Pharaoh named “Ramsis,” so we can assume it means “Ramses”. Both Ramses II and Ramses III built temples, so it is not clear which one this refers to. Most likely, it is Ramses II whose temple is well known.

The “twice Born” is another way of saying those who have been initiated and have awakened their spirit and soul. What Jesus really meant when He said we must be born again. It is not a reference to reincarnation, but rather to the soul and spirit. We become twice born when we have awakened those faculties that are dormant on the material plane of existence.

These hidden “shrines” are the places where only those ready for true spiritual development could be taken and initiated. Once initiated, they were obligated to continue developing their spiritual self, and to help others do the same.

East Gate

This temple is not the only place where a sacred side had its most sacred entrance facing east. Since east is the direction on the rising sun, it is natural that the door to the inner temple would face that way. Continue reading “Twice Born in the Secret Inner Temples of Egypt”

Great Light

Great Light That Awakens the Soul

“Egypt was a land destined for greatness; its people should have led all others towards the Great light. Egypt failed in its destiny because those who were entrusted with power and position proved unworthy. Its kings, who should have reared families dedicated to goodness and inspiration; betrayed their trust to satisfy the weaknesses of men. … The priesthood become corrupt when it offered  a life of ease and abundance instead of a life of service and austerity. The ideals of men were above reproach, but man himself was unworthy of them. … The sacred lore of Egypt, enshrining the treasure of the ages, was possessed by only a select few who safeguarded it as nothing else has ever been guarded, because of its greatness.” ~The Kolbrin Bible (SOF:1:13)

Great Light in Egypt

Ancient Egypt was a land where the Great Light was known, at least to some. There is ample evidence of this in the art and writings of those times. Egypt even had some pharaohs who were true believers that did all they could to keep the truth alive, while protecting it from those who would abuse such knowledge.

But as with other civilizations, Egypt was eventually taken over by materialism and the dark forces that support it. Fortunately, they passed the Great Light on to others before it dimmed too much in their land.

The Great Light in Other Lands

The early Greeks had many connections with Egypt. Much of it was commerce, but not all. There were exchanges of ideas, especially spiritual ones. In short, many Greek priests and philosophers were taught in the great schools of ancient Egypt. They too learned about the Great Light, where to find it, and how to use it. Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and many other great from the Golden Age of Greece either were taught by Egyptian holy men, or by other Greek philosophers who were taught by the Egyptians.

The Greeks, in turn, shared their knowledge with true seekers from other lands, primarily Rome. It is not a coincidence that Roman gods and myths are so similar to those of Greece.

The Great Light awakened people in other lands as well. China, Japan, the British Isles, Hawaii and many others have historical evidence that such knowledge was taught in their spiritual schools at some time in the past. Continue reading “Great Light That Awakens the Soul”

Isiac Tablet or Table

The Isiac Tablet and Its Symbolism

“Plato was initiated into the ‘Greater Mysteries’ at the age of 49. The initiation took place in one of the subterranean halls of the Great Pyramid in Egypt. The Isiac Tablet formed the alter, before which the Divine Plato stood and received that which was always his, but which the ceremony of the mysteries enkindled and brought from its dormant state. …” ~Thomas Taylor

“Westcott sums up his interpretation of the Tablet as follows:
‘The diagram of Levi, by which he explains the mystery of the Tablet, shows the upper region divided into the four seasons, each with three signs of the zodiac, … The central region he ascribes to the Solar Powers and the Planetary. In the middle we see above, the sun, marked Ops, and below it is a Solomon’s Seal, above a cross; a double triangle, Hexapla …”
“The Tablet of Isis was originally a table or altar, and its emblems were part of the mysteries explained by priests. … In his introduction to the Table, Kirsher summarizes ts symbolism thus: ‘It teaches, in the first place, the whole constitution of the threefold world—archetypal, intellectual, and sensible. …” ~Manly P. Hall

The Isiac Tablet

I have to admit that I had never heard of this tablet until I read this section of Mr. Hall’s book (The Secret Teachings of All Ages). It’s appearance and descriptions are fascinating. Also known as the Bembene Tablet or the Mensa Isaica, it is a large bronze tablet with enamel and silver inlays and most experts say it was probably made in Rome in the first century.

There are many interpretations of the tablet, including those who say it has no meaning at all but is just an interesting work of art. Some things are fairly clear just by looking at it. First, it is clearly divided into three horizontal sections. It may be that the top section is intended to represent the higher (spiritual) realms, the bottom section, the lower worlds of matter, and the center section representing the world of man who is caught between the two.

Most scholars doubt the claim that Plato was initiated on this table, but then most scholars doubt everything spiritual or esoteric. Continue reading “The Isiac Tablet and Its Symbolism”

Atlantis and the Sun

“Was the religious, philosophic, and scientific knowledge possessed by the priestcrafts of antiquity secured from Atlantis, whose submergence obliterated every vestige of its part in the drama of world progress? Atlantean sun worship has been perpetuated in the ritualism and cerimonialism of both Christianity and pagandom. Both the cross and the serpent were Atlantean emblems of divine wisdom. … The six sky-born sages came into manifestation as centers of light bound together or syntheesized by the seventh. … The center of the Atlantean Wisdom-Religion was presumably a great pyramidal temple… From here the Initiate-Priests of the Sacred Feather went forth, carrying the keys of Universal Wisdom to the uttermost parts of the earth.” ~Manly P. Hall

AtlantisIt is certainly true that some of the great civilizations of the past, primarily that of ancient Egypt, learned mush from the people of Atlantis who visited them regularly. It is also true that modern religions owe much of their ceremonies to the Atlantean ones, however it is not true that the Atlanteans were sun worshippers.

When certain ancient civilizations are referred to as “sun worshippers” it means, or should mean, that they worshiped the sun as God, or at least a god. This, however, is not the case with the Atlanteans and many other that historians have labeled sun worshipers. The People of Atlantis did not think that the sun was God, but rather a channel for God’s Light. They believed that just as all earthly beings have a spiritual self as well as a physical one, the physical sun also had a spiritual counterpart. The physical sun is by far the most important source of light, heat and some other energies to Earth. Likewise, the spiritual sun is the primary source of spiritual energy to beings on Earth. But just as you can hide from the radiation of the physical sun, you can, to a large degree, hide from the spiritual Light. The unfortunate thing is that you have to make an effort to hide from the physical sun, but you need make no effort at all to hide from it’s spiritual counterpart.
