“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.
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”
