2. Expression (i.e. The incarnation of The Christ, Yeshua). Christian
theologians attempt to equate the term Logos with the Hebrew God,
Elohim as in Genesis 1:3, God Said, "Let there be light", the
expression of God's Self as Deity. But this is a misuse of the term. To
proclaim God as Deity is Idolatrous to the Hebrew. If God's Eminence
is constant throughout the universe, then why are there so many
definitions of God? Would this not mean that God evolves through
individual consciousness as humanity evolves. To many theologians
the expression of God from a Hebrew perspective comes from Genesis
1:2, "the Spirit, Ruach, of God...", literally meaning "breath of God",
which is more descriptive as the Holy Spirit than the Deity as Yeshua.
So, to the Christian, Yeshua is more the Hierophant to humanity than
the Deity balloted and pronounced God, at the Nicene Council in 346
An example showing this relationship and evolution in consciousness in
humanity can be compared. Showing the cosmology of early Greek
philosophic/scientific thought, and contemporary
philosophic/scientific research in a Quantum perception of reality
today we can easily see this evolution.
The Ptolemaic or Pythagorean perception that all souls are predestined
was made obsolete with Quantum Theory. In a quantum universe
although there is a randomness in all of life, there remains a probability
as forms take shape within the laws of physical matter in our universe.
Therefore, our perception of our "Self" individually is directly
connected with our perception of the collective self resting the human
consciousness in total. And there is a common consciousness that
connects all living things in the universe.
3. The Freemason and the Mystic Teachings, Unity in Duality,
How Our Conscious Perception of the Archetype "Deity"
Evolves Through Time.
"Setting Our Moral Compasses"
Freemasons with interests in the Mystic or contemplative tradition
observe the symbols and listen to the lectures, seeking
wisdom sophia, and truth alethia, and in the beginning it is through
faith pistis, they begin their study. But, the only secrets to Freemasons
are those not seen through their own blindness. This "blindness" is
most easily recognized when viewing the art of academic
Medieval/Renaissance portrayals showing the Pythagorean/Ptolemaic
Structure of the universe before the 1600s A.D., an example of which
is shown above, compared with how we perceive the universe today.
According to the Ptolemaic scheme of the universe before Copernicus,
Galileo and Newton, Earth was the center of the universe, the Sun and
Moon were planets which with Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and
Saturn totaled seven (7) Gateways or Dominions in the heavens.
4. These dominions encircled the Earth in the form of crystalline spheres
and at each respective planet there were principalities or mediators who
officiated the coming and going of human souls as they descended and
ascended through the heavens in birth and death on their way to the
"Prime Mover", God. Now, the description just given may seem
comical to us today. A fairy tale. But its important to remember that
this perceived reality was imagined as an Archetype of Deity. This
understanding is important because we find this
Pythagorean/Ptolemaic, Platonic, perception inter-weaved in Biblical
teaching, New and Old Testament, Old Testament post
Babylonian captivity and in the Gospels of the New Testament. For
this reason we are taught that it is through The Deity Christ,
Incarnated as Jesus, that we transcend the cycle of birth, death and
rebirth, before ascending or returning to "That house not made with
hands eternal in the heavens". And until the new Copernican/Planck,
perception of the universe was accepted in modern times, all spiritual
and physical perceptions including how humanity perceived the Deity
of God and God's dwelling place based on this Pythagorean/Ptolemaic
or Platonic structure of the universe, were religious law and millions of
people suffered the penalty of death both physically and spiritually in
the most cruel manner. Yet, it is the Archetype Deity resting in the
collective conscious, represented as the Holy Word or Logos, as
6. consciousness. As one gains more experience in meditation however,
one experiences consciousness as a "Vacuum Of Silence". It is in this
Vacuum Of Silence, that one is able to experience the Collective
Consciousness of the Self, and a "Unity In Duality". Therefore, I will
proceed to the next step in the contemplative Freemason's preparation
for study of the symbols and lectures in Freemasonry. The meditation
its' self and the lifestyle that voluntarily accompanies it, seemingly as a
discipline at first later becomes a lifestyle with boundless enjoyment. At
least this has been my experience. There are many different types of
meditations used for many purposes. The meditation described in the
next lesson is one originally taught by Patanjali, and is recognized as
the foundation of all meditations.
The New Paradigm Of Humanity's Perception
Of The Archetype "Deity", For This New Age.
It was through the sacrifices and efforts of the great scientists,
philosophic and biblical scholars of the Renaissance through the
enlightenment period up to the mid 1900s, that the "New Scientist"
today, views life etymologically with a "Quantum View", of reality.
That is to say that a quantum or transcendent view of the universe
reflects more a continuum that has no beginning or end rather evolves
from moment to moment. Reality and the consciousness of reality
evolves in a continuum that is not linear in nature but rather trans-
mutates from one photon to other photons or species virtually through
a medium of "Free-Space" also known as the vacuum of space, the
vacuum of the collective consciousness.
It was the famous physicist James Clerk Maxwell who discovered that
electric and magnetic fields traveled through space in the form of waves
and at a constant speed of light. Using this discovery, defining that
wave form and energy have constant velocity, relative to frequency, it
has become known as Planck's Constant. Max Planck, divided this
constant in the "energy frequency waveform relationship" that makes
up all physical matter, and together with Louis de Broglie, founded
7. Quantum Physics Proves
the Ancient Esoteric Teachings.
Quantum physics principals however were taught in the ancient
mystery schools for millenia through the esoteric teachings of
Pythagoras, the Hermetic Science of Hermes Trismegistus, and even
the earlier teachings of Patanjali in India. The Christ teachings as the
Holy Logos, from his sermons and parables teach the salvation of the
soul through redeeming grace.
A New Paradigm Of Consciousness,
A New Perception Of Deity.
The Pythagorean perception of Deity in Freemasonry and how the
symbols taught to initiates through the symbols and lectures are
becoming more and more misunderstood because the adepts who teach
them are becoming fewer as memorization and proficiency becomes
more and more relaxed. Also, as humanity evolves and shifts into the
"New Paradigm Of Consciousness" toward the next age, it will be the
responsibility of the proficient few who understand this new paradigm,
who will interpret this new evolved consciousness through the
Hierophant or Holy Logos, that brought humanity to this current
point in time. And even today their knowledge and awareness
continues to enlighten modern society.
In the future, a Freemason's Quantum Perception of the Tracing Board
will be quite different when compared to his Pythagorean ancestor.
The challenge now for the Freemason studying the symbols and
lectures, is to find the harmony when realizing the pre-manifest and
manifest realities of life simultaneously, recognizing this Vision
through the introspection of meditation as a form of consciousness
(The Collective Consciousness of the Inner Self) or thought rather
than physical phenomena.
