Many Paths, One Goal (The Basics)

2As previously mentioned, there are countless paths to the attainment of Immortality. As this is an individual journey, it is up to each individual to find his own path, which may in fact not work for another person.  That is why we say that Freemasonry is an individual journey. It is, of course, always helpful to have help along the way, a spiritual adviser or mentor if you will. Nevertheless, despite some guidance, no two paths are the same, just as no two bodies are alike.

All the same, though there are many paths to take, there are, in fact, some general guidelines one should consider when undertaking Immortality. Here are but a few:

1) Avoid death: do not talk about it, do not mention it and never attend a funeral – especially yours. This is especially important if one is susceptible to negative spirit forces. In no way do you want to endorse the ideology of death. In fact, do not even joke about it. In no way is it a part of your vernacular, behavior or verbiage. Avoid it at all cost.

2) Love for life: with every part of your being, tell yourself that God’s creation, including you, is fantastic and wonderful. Love for life is an instrumental part of your mental programming. Do not let anyone tell you differently; in fact, immediately tell yourself about God’s love for creation when someone does or says something negative to you. You must counter every negative electrical wave with a positive electrical counter wave.

3) Low calorie diet and moderate exercise: I know it is hard to do, but do your best to lower your calorie intake over time. If you were like me, I loved to gorge my food; something I learned in my youth. Yet, as I look back over the past several years, my intake is now about 1/3 of what it once way. I know I still have a long way to go; but time is my friend now that I think like an Immortal. I am constantly reminding myself to stop eating. I have not broken this habit yet. I do indulge myself from time to time when I feel the need; and when I do over indulge my appetite, I feel guilty because of it. I am desperately doing my best to recondition my mind and body. Although, as my spiritual mentor told me, “it will take time to change your eating habits, but if the desire for Immortality is strong enough, you will adapt; but do not rush it; time is now your best friend.” This simple lesson may be the hardest thing to accomplish for many people. Start now, and over time, work towards eating less and less. In time, your diet will consist of very moderate portions of food; some might even call them snacks, rather than meals. Moreover, moderate exercise is a must. No, you don’t have to push the limits of physical endurance; rather, limited physical activity helps keep the body healthy and youthful, as opposed to a stagnant lifestyle, which only brings on the quickening of death.

4) Become a student of the mysteries and a student of history: in order to attain an Immortal state, each student must become knowledgeable about esoteric teachings. No, you do not have to master every aspect of Alchemy to receive the benefits of Immortality. Yet, it is only through hard work and study will the benefits of the mysteries be earned. With greater understanding, comes acceptance. When one first reads these esoteric tales and lessons, he begins to wonder what they might mean and what the author was really trying to convey. Over time and with a great deal of study and patience, these allegorical lessons slowly begin to make sense and take shape; and then and only then will you begin to implement the hidden lessons into your quest. One of the biggest fears of a true Immortal is ignorance, not only his own, but also the ignorance of others, who will do everything in their power to destroy what they do not, or could even, understand. Our history is replete with examples of Immortals who either disappeared, or faked their death, in order to escape the actions of evil people. Yet, I have been told that this is the time for Immortal teachings to return; our civilization has reached a point in time of acceptance. We are now accepting of people with different views, religions and even sexuality. It is now time for the acceptance of Immortal training, which will lead to more and more Immortals revealing themselves. Yes my friends, Immortals do exist, but they will not reveal themselves publicly until they know it is safe. Only through the study of the mysteries and history will a true Immortal know how to attain and maintain his existence.

5) Have a relationship with God. It must always be remembered, Immortality cannot be attained separate from God. God (Nature) is the force, or energy, which aligns and allows all the elements to work toward the goal of life extension (Immortality). The ancient philosophers and alchemists knew that Immortality could not be attained without God’s help and guidance. I say guidance because it is He who guides each individual journey. It is His Will that allows all the knowledge to culminate within each person; and just as quickly as it is given, it can be stricken.

6) Pray: daily, and even hourly, prayer should be a part of your Immortal formula. Give constant thanks to God for your life, and for the love for his creation. It is through appreciation that one gains the needed connection to His creation. Immortality cannot be gained without God’s love for you and you for Him and His creation.

7) Discernment: I am constantly asking for the power of Divine discernment. You see, there is a difference between manly and Divine discernment. We, as worldly humans have been trained to think a specific way, which hinders our judgments. It is these worldly judgments that disconnect us from God. Case in point, I am often asked questions from a contemporary Christian view, which forces me to remind the student not to look upon the ancient mysteries from our current perspective. In fact, many of the lessons that came from the ancient mysteries predate Christianity, as well as many other religions today. Therefore, it may in fact be your current worldly judgments that are holding you back from seeing the prospect of Immortality. It is only through Divine insights, and a retooling of one’s mind, that Immortal lesson’s can be discerned.

There are perhaps many more lessons to ponder; but for now, if you can follow these seven basic Immortal lessons, you too will begin to find your way; with more guidelines to follow. I do not want to overwhelm anyone just yet.

Energy is Forever

2

Energy cannot be destroyed; it can, however, be transformed or transmuted, thereby multiplying its frequency and sustainability. Everything in existence is information, like the ideals and teachings of death. This type of informational existence dominates one’s internal energy, which is damaging the prospect of longevity. It has been said that collective intelligence is itself an energy force; this structure also guides mortal thinking. Yet, this energy can also be redirected into an Immortal consciousness? Think about the possibilities.

In order to restructure ones potential for Immortality, it is necessary to live a happy, honest and creative life. We are simply a computer that has been programmed by the mind. The human body will do exactly what the conscious mind instructs. Therefore, optimism will enhance the prospect of Immortality, while pessimism will end in death. In short, if one believes in death, it is a guarantee that you will certainly die. If that is the case, why cannot it also be true, that being, if one believes in everlasting life, i.e. Immortality, one can live forever. It is, in fact, a reprogramming of one’s mind and body. Yet, with that said, if there is any doubt in one’s Immortality, it cannot be attained.

An Immortal state is not as simple as just believing it; no, one must also live a quality life and follow countless rules of governance. With this understanding, we know that many people have tried and failed, and continue to achieve this goal. This was an objective of the ancient and alchemical sages.

Nothing has changed, in fact, the basis for contemporary medicine (chemistry) can be found in ancient beliefs and alchemical literature of old. Immortality has been the collective dream since the beginning of time; and medical advancements and new technologies continue to strive toward that aim. The biggest difference though is the fact that modern medicine has separated itself from the spiritual side of the equation. Please remember, water is just water until it is preyed upon. Therefore, the power of prayer, spiritualism, is a necessary component of Immortality.

There is nothing wrong with using modern medicine; it is similar to the goal of the ancient alchemist. Nevertheless, the everlasting energy of spiritualism is a key component of attaining Immortality. Yet, for the most part, one does not have to use modern medicine if he had achieved and implemented the use of the Golden Elixir; sometimes called the philosophical stone.  There are, in fact, several alchemical formulas available even today. These formulas can be found in both the Holy Bible and Albert Pike’s book Morals and Dogma, 1871; as well as other Masonic writings.

You see, the basis of Freemasonry is Immortality. Think about it for a few minutes before immediately dismissing such thinking. Why be a good man? Why be a good citizen? Why be a good husband and father? Why believe in God? etc., etc., etc. What is the aim of all the foundational rules we have sworn to follow as a Mason? Many will say, “To attain Immortality of the soul, or an afterlife.” There is no doubt if you desire such a thing you will attain it. However, just as equally, if you desire Immortality of the flesh, you will also attain that goal. We are what we think; you are what you desire and beieve.

Just ask yourself this question, “How are you directing your spiritual energy; and to what aim? If you are directing your spiritual energy toward death, you will certainly attain it. If you are directing your spiritual energy toward Immortality (life), you will also attain it. Just do not have any negative thoughts on the topic; and you will discover the rules for Immortality, especially when asked for from God.

Next month, I will discuss many of the rules for attaining Immortality. There are, in fact, countless in number, and not exact in specificity. In short, there are many paths towards Immortality.

The Secret

There is nothing secret about the Philosopher’s Stone being a secret; nevertheless, there is good reason for this secrecy, but more on that a little later. It has been said that knowledge of such a Stone would inevitably collapse our current system. This of course is a debatable issue; nonetheless, let it be told here and now that such knowledge will never be granted or understood by the profane. You see, knowledge of the Stone has always been right in front of humankind; it has not wavered in the least. No, it is man who has wavered by way of his continued stubbornness toward godly behaviors.

A Golden Age has always been possible, but because of mankind’s corrupt state of existence, such dreams remain a fallacy to the masses. Most sages who possessed the secrets of Immortality held them close; never revealing them. As gatekeepers of such knowledge, they did not want this knowledge falling into the hands of the unworthy. The secret pact is still alive and well today. Simply, remember this, water is just water until one prays upon it. Which means, it is God himself who bestows such knowledge upon the worthy. And just as quickly, when a sage is granted Immortality, it can easily be taken from him as well. There is a sacred pack between God and man; and to break this pack, would mean the end of his existence. Just as quickly as it is granted, it can be stricken.

Some have referred to this as elite thinking, but I say nonsense. Only a student of world thinking would think such a thing. Today’s culture has promoted the idea that everyone is special and everyone deserves a trophy. Well, that is not how Immortality works. In short, it is earned through diligent study, loyalty to the mysteries and from the grace of God. Virtually every Immortal understands that they were chosen by God, not the other way around. They must have proven their worthiness, otherwise, Immortality would never have been granted.

It has been said that many Immortals are obsessive with life. On this point, I must agree; but for good reason. As I have stated before, it has been long understood that Immortals love life and must, at some point, fake their death. Dangers are always lurking. History is replete with examples of Immortals disappearing and reappearing in different locations and at different time periods. Whenever an Immortal feels threatened, either by people, or events, like a war or plague, he knows from experience that he must exit quickly and quietly. An Immortal is a survivor first and foremost. He evades death by way of his powers of discernment. These godly judgements or knowledge come from years, even hundreds and thousands of years, of study. The immortal loves to learn; in fact, his life depends on it. By understanding the history and the cycles that surround repeating events over and over again, he sees patterns of prosperity and decline. Knowing how to survive rises and falls becomes a part of his economic, spiritual and physical safety.

An Immortal has a natural fear of ignorance; because it is ignorant people who seek to destroy his longevity. Evil people often go to great lengths to attain the secrets of Immortality; but honestly, even when it is given under duress, the receivers of this knowledge often do not believe it will work, and therefore, it did not work and will never work. You see, the formula for Immortality is not a singular substance; no, it also encompasses the spiritual component. This point alone, makes attaining Immortality an impossible task for an evil person. There is no way an evil man, with evil intentions can attain Immortality. It does not work that way. That is why I wrote, water is just water until one prays upon it. In short, without the power of God (Nature), Immortality is unattainable.

Indeed, there are countless elixirs available to each and every person desiring Immortality. I personally know of several; but other than cleansing one’s internal body, they have no prolonging effect. The difference is the relationship you have with God, who will guide your study and transition into Immortality.

Mistrust due to a Lack of Understanding

2

It has been said that Alchemy is as old as history itself; and is, in fact, the basis of contemporary medicine; despite this fact, most people still don’t believe in it. Much of the confusion stems from the fact that many alchemical writings were purposely written allegorically and obscurely; which was done purposely to hide the truth from the profane. Just like Masonic literature, especially the writings of Albert Pike, one must be a student of the craft in order to get the full benefits within.

The word mistrust can be defined as a lack of confidence; which may be a result of not understanding something, or just simple ignorance. Most people don’t believe things they have no understanding of; if there is no basis of understanding, the human mind simply ignores or denies the evidence. In short, in their minds, if something is not understood it does not exist. These things, like nature, become lies to the masses.

Therefore, Alchemy simply imitates and quickens nature. Thus, the definition is a self-supporting one, as it only claims what is already true. Yes, it is hidden, but it is natural. All truths must be in agreement with nature, plausible, rational, and most of all, they must make sense by way of Godly discernment. If not, one’s belief is simply black ignorance; rather than white truth.

Yet, even today, many students of the craft still object to the idea that nature (alchemy) is capable of producing a substance powerful enough to prolong life, i.e. Immortality. This is so because such an idea is too difficult to explain. How can anyone believe it without seeing it? Like Roger Bannister, the first man to run a sub 4-minute mile. Until he accomplished it, everyone thought such a feat was impossible; but now running such times are common among hi-level athletes. You see, history is full of examples of Immortals who had to fake their deaths in order to continue to live. Immortals are afraid, and for good reason. These reasons are less important today. I believe the world will openly embrace them in the coming years. Many of the superstitions and religious biases of the past have fallen way to a more understanding world. This I believe has slowly transpired throughout our history, which has led us to this point in time.

As such, nature is a force that operates within this universe. We are, in fact, a part of this creation. How can we accept the fact that nature creates life, but does not have the ability to prolong it? If nature creates life, and we are a part of nature, then we should be able to create, and even prolong, life as well.

Consequently, any argument against Alchemy itself is simple ignorance; it matters little what one believes, such thinking does not change the truth; and the truth is, Immortality is attainable through Alchemy. To better clarify my point, here are a few Alchemical quotes to ponder and reflect upon; they all have to do with the attainment of the Immortality of the flesh:

“This Matter lies before the eyes of all; everybody sees it, touches it, loves it, but knows it not. It is glorious and vile, precious and of small account, and is found everywhere” (The Golden Tract Concerning the Stone of the Philosophers, Anonymous German Philosopher, 16th century).

“Human beings receive this Golden Elixir from Heaven. It is perfectly good with nothing bad in it, it is innate knowledge (liangzhi) and innate capacity (liangneng). It is the Numinous Root, entirely achieved and with nothing lacking. It is the Breath of precelestial Perfect Yang” (Liu Yiming’s, Awakening to Reality, Poem 3, 1734-1821).

“Know that our Mercury is before the eyes of all men, though it is known to few. When it is prepared, its splendour is most admirable; but the sight is vouchsafed to none, save the sons of knowledge. Do not despise it, therefore, when you see it in sordid guise; for if you do, you will never accomplish our Magistery—and if you can change its countenance, the transformation will be glorious. For our water is a most pure virgin, and is loved of many, but meets all her wooers in foul garments, in order that she may be able to distinguish the worthy from the unworthy” (The Fount of Chemical Truth, by Eirenaeus Philalethes, 1694 AD).

“Golden Elixir is another name for one’s inchoate fundamental nature (xing). There is no other Golden Elixir outside one’s fundamental nature. Every human being has this Golden Elixir complete in oneself: it is entirely achieved in everyone. It is neither more in a sage, nor less in an ordinary person. It is the seed of the Immortals and the Buddhas, the root of the worthies and the sages” (Liu Yiming’s, Awakening to Reality, Poem 3, 1734-1821).

“By the ignorant and the beginner it is thought to be the vilest and meanest of things. It is sought by many Sages, and found by few… Men have it before their eyes, handle it with their hands, yet know it not, though they constantly tread it under their feet… very common, and may be everywhere obtained in abundance” (The Sophic Hydrolith, Or, Water Stone of the Wise, Anonymous, 17th Century).

There is something which everyone recognizes, and whoever does not recognize it will rarely, perhaps never find it. The wise man will keep it and the fool will throw it away, and the reduction comes easily to the man who knows it” (A Magnificent and Select Tract on Philosophical Water, by Anonymous, 13th Century).

The Immortal Cabal: Manly P. Hall

2

While reading Manly P. Halls book, The Secret Teachings of All Ages (1928), I came across the following quote from the preface:

For once, a book which really lives up to its title. Hall self-published this massive tome in 1928, consisting of about 200 legal-sized pages in 8 point type; it is literally his magnum opus. Each of the nearly 50 chapters is so dense with information that it is the equivalent of an entire short book. If you read this book in its entirety you will be in a good position to dive into subjects such as the Qabbala, Alchemy, Tarot, Ceremonial Magic, Neo-Platonic Philosophy, Mystery Religions, and the theory of Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry. Although there are some questionable and controversial parts of the book, such as the outdated material on Islam, the portion on the Bacon-Shakespeare hypothesis, and Hall’s conspiracy theory of history as driven by an elite cabal of roving immortals, they are far out-weighed by the comprehensive information here on other subjects.

Of particular interest is the following sub-quote, “Hall’s conspiracy theory of history as driven by an elite cabal of roving immortals.” At first I was taken back; did I just read what I think I read? After several days of reflecting on the topic, I decided to investigate this claim further.

The truth is, I personally believe there are Immortals roaming this earth; but the question remains, is there a central authority of Immortals, or are they simply a group of Immortals working independent of each other.

The term Cabal can be defined as, “engaged in plotting or enter into a conspiracy, swear together.” There are also several more sinister definitions, like, “a plot to carry out some harmful or illegal act,” and “a clique (often secret) that seeks power usually through intrigue.” Nevertheless, I do not believe there is an Immortal Cabal that is intended to do anything harmful to the mortal population; let me explain further.

According to Robert Coon, Immortals work independent of each other. Each immortal has found an independent path to helping humanity and this planet. One cannot gain an Immortal state of existence except by goodness. Therefore, any idea that there is a group of Immortals, a Cabal if you will, coordinating to control anything is simply unbelievable.

You see, Immortality is only granted to the individual who has demonstrated spiritual and physical purity; or as I like to say, goodness.

As Robert Coon mentioned in his book, The Path of the Phoenix (2009), “Immortals are your brothers and sisters. They have no interest in either being persecuted or idolized! The promise is always: we shall recognize the Immortals when we are as they – equals in our Passions for, and Masteries of, the Divine” (p. 183)!

You see, Immortals are nonconformist, they cannot even agree on one single formula for Immortality; so how could anyone even think they could agree on ruling this planet. In fact, the concept of controlling another person or a people is contrary to the laws of Immortality. Coon continued,

It is wrong to attempt to impose a universal condition on everyone that limits possibilities. There are an infinite number of valid pathways – all of which lead to the same place. Immortals enjoy life immensely. For some, that enjoyment may involve listening to heavy metal music, or drinking a beer. Individually, we each have to make decisions about which experiences enhance the quality of our lives. There is no doubt whatsoever, that for some of us watching T.V., drinking single malt whiskies, or listening to loud, energetic music does create life and happiness… Immortals are anarchists, in the most pure and friendly sense of that word… We profane another person’s purpose in life when we attempt to impose our own prejudices, fears, and weaknesses upon them. We do not have a legal right to tell another person what their purpose is (p. 193-194).

As such, there is no Immortal Cabal, despite the fact some people believe it and even write about it. Nevertheless, the most fascinating part of the above quote, “Hall’s conspiracy theory of history as driven by an elite cabal of roving immortals” is the fact that we now have independent confirmation that Manly, P. Hall was a devotee and teacher of Immortalism,

The Light and the fire which rise are the divine man, ascending in the path of the Word, and that which fails to ascend is the mortal man, which may not partake of immortality. Learn deeply of the Mind and its mystery, for therein lies the secret of immortality (Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of the Ages, 1928, p. 39).

Man’s Triumph Over Death: Part IV

2There is little doubt that in this new age of technology, with its quickening effect on our culture and its people, we have transformed our foundation and basis for existence. Immediate information is available to everyone, and this has affected our quality of life and our modern consciousness. We are no longer a simple people seeking godliness; no, our culture now believes that technology will be our savior.  Such is the intellectual saturation of our modern consciousness; but the question remains, how does such thinking align with ancient mystical thinking; and is such thinking comparable and does it still actually work?

Honestly, only time will tell for sure. Nevertheless, I do contend that if we do not keep our sights on the ancient mysteries, Immortality is not attainable. We cannot gain Immortality through the scholarship of technology alone; there is certainly a spiritual component that cannot be ignored. I do not trust that Immortality can be gained through science unaccompanied. I do, however, believe that, like the Alchemists of our past, Immortality can be gained through intellectual and spiritual knowledge combined.

There is an outward and inward world for humanity; with each man being the link in this chain. Man continues to battle countless would be scientific theories and esoteric doctrines in an effort to find the philosophers stones or elixir of life. As hard as it was in the past, such knowledge becomes even more muddled by contemporary modernity. The truth, to a greater or lesser degree, has become unrecognizable; whereby value in knowledge is deluded because of massive and yet misguided knowledge. Determining the authenticity, worth and importance of knowledge is certainly no easy task.  Our world has become outdated through countless norms and standards that continue to compulsively misguide us humans. We think and act far differently than our ancient ancestors, which steers our inner power to more and more external endeavors. It is this cognitive type of thinking that has led us further and further from the fundamental secrets of creation.  New contemporary knowledge has always and constantly hindered and disconnected our connection to the Creator and his creation.

It is ironic that classical views stand in stark contrast to fashionable views, with more and more reliance on technology, science and medicine to cure the human body. I so often hear it stated, if science cannot prolong life then dreams of immortality must be a fabrication. But our ancient ancestors did not hold such luxuries, yet still attained an Immortal state of existence. There is a universal organization to an eternal life; these laws of nature have never changed, only man’s evolutionary outlook continues to battle these ancient mysteries. Therefore, we, the students of the mysteries, endeavor to seek these ancient mysteries with a fervent zeal; and we acknowledge these differences with a mindful passion for Immortality of the flesh.

We understand that the physical body of a human being and the material world are formed by consciousness and energy; that the very nature of each human is displayed outwardly in physical form, but also generates a spiritual component.  The reality of such a belief though is the fact that detection is often unmeasurable; at least through contemporary scientific methods. Which has led to much speculation and even dismissal. Pundits are quick to us terms like paranormal activity, mythology and even folklore. All the same, without empirical measurable documentation, most people will simply turn from seeking Immortality. This is an ailment of contemporary conditioning.

Nevertheless, we stand firm in our belief in Immortality. As hard as science has tried to prove or disprove the spiritual realm, it has found only confusion. How does one prove faith? It cannot be proven. Simply stated, one must have faith in Immortality before it can be gained; to think otherwise, one will only find death. More to follow next month.

Man’s Triumph Over Death: Part III

2It is true that in traveling the great narrow way of personal and inner accomplishments, one is not only required to follow angelic law, but also be committed to the elimination of all transgressions and mistakes. This change is an essential part of the progression toward Immortalism.   This inner way is a pathway toward purity and enlightenment; not just intellectual enlightenment, but also a pureness of life itself. As mentioned before, the wages of sin is death.  There is a way to eternal, unlimited and everlasting regeneration. This is the way in which one departs from his mortal infant status; of which, he must surpass the youthful teachings of nursery rhymes and fairy tales, and the immature games of make-believe. We have been taught that up is down and down is up, that mortal-ism is life and Immortalism is not possible. Yet, this type of thinking is wrong, but present in the minds of most people. The fact is, purity of thought and actions are health-producing agents.

As each man lives the inner laws of goodness and virtue, his own consciousness within himself will come into full contact with God, who will guide him in his direction. In time, this calming inner voice becomes a loving helper, which will disclose the truth about his own Immortal potential. Yes, there is a Divine Kingdom waiting each willing seeker of Immortal light. It is an inner song of praise, love and gratitude that releases one’s own vibrating glorious power and radiant splendor.

These laws of perfection are the forgotten ancient laws of our past. Humanity continues to progress, which has led to a further divide from our glorious past. New is not always better, as the saying goes. Technology, with all its conveniences and luxury has made man complacent. So much so that most of humanity does not even believe in its own potential anymore; rather, man now believes that life will only get better through the use of more and more modernity. Forget God’s laws of love, devotion, self-sacrifice, and the willingness to become a steward of one’s own body. Modern science will aid the unrighteous man; or so he thinks. Pills, shots and surgery may prolong the unworthy man of modernity, but it does not grant Immortality. Is there another path; perhaps an Alchemical one? Yes, indeed there is; but such knowledge is never given. No, such familiarity is only received through relentless research and from the guidance of prayer to the Great Architect, who will only disclose such awareness to the well-intentioned pupil of the ancient mysteries.

God’s laws are pure, perfect and yet sublime; a road less traveled. His laws require adoration and worship, for without them, Immortality is but a fairy tale. Live God’s laws and the truth will be revealed to you. Divine vibrations will release the Light of knowledge upon your consciousness. His laws are honest and pure; His eternal decrees will never fail the honest seeker of truth.  They are irrevocable!!!

From the least to the greatest, all are invited to take part in this wondrous journey.  There is a spiritual banquet awaiting the truthful and honest student who is pure of heart. God has and will continue to grant incredible gifts upon man; however, these gifts will never be granted to the unworthy. The unworthy must seek solitude in the modern sciences, because only the worthy will be granted everlasting Immortality.

The true student of the mysteries must always be a perfectionist, that is, he will always demand more of himself, not of others. In his best efforts, he will find satisfaction. He will always find a method of progress, contentment and fulfillment. As one applies these forgotten lessons into his mortal life, which currently consists of negligence, thoughtlessness, carelessness, recklessness and harmful actions to others and himself, his transformation will be seen in his own flesh. He will stop the evolution of death, he will reverse the ongoing decay of ageing and death.

And finally and more specifically, one’s true Godly love is as vital to Immortality as any of the Elixirs also heralded over the past centuries; but more on that a little later.

Man’s Triumph Over Death: Part II

2

All that the father of creation has is yours for the asking, even the power of creation. Yet, these higher laws of creation can only be used by those individuals who have evolved from the kingdom of man into the kingdom of the creator. And it all starts with the desire, like in the beginning, “Let there be LIGHT.” It is from these living rays of LIGHT that everything has been created or formed.

The fullness of the creation is faith, which is our own thoughts and desires; cast away your doubting and the unbelief in yourself, and you can live as long as you so desire. But it is more than positive thoughts that make such things a reality. Remember the lesson, faith without works? You must work at Immortality, and it all starts with your thoughts. Nevertheless, it does not end there, you must also alter your life to make way for a new way of thinking, acting and living. Throw out the old you and recreate a new you based on ancient doctrines of Immortality.

Look at no one person for help, for you hold the truth within you. No person, no religion, nor any government can help you; only God himself. Only through the Great Creator can Immortality be attained. God himself will become your teacher, if you ask and become a loyal and strident student. It is through his spirit that the lessons of eternalism are taught. You must become an exalted and glorified receptor to make life more abundant. And only when such lofty goals are sought and eventually met, will you be lifted beyond mere mortalism; yes, you must evolve from the man kingdom into the God Kingdom.

Make praise and thanks continual; never doubt this reality. Ask, seek and constantly knock until the Great Architect accepts you into his chosen hands. Nothing is impossible unto the worthy. This was promised to you ages ago; it is irrevocable. It has always been with you, but could not be seen until your eyes were opened; i.e. the Light.

As one learns to feel these Immortal truths, he will begin to grasp or to know the real truth; not mortal truths, but rather, Immortal ones.  And with this new knowledge, and the application thereof, he will become free. These inner laws contain the knowledge of what each man held in the beginning when he was one with our creator. There is an all-inclusive unfolding for each individual, an eternal revelation of the great truth, from a contact that is contained in the revelation of each man’s destiny. This is the same destiny that each man was commissioned to fulfill before he was born.

There is the revelation of one’s past, especially as one opens his mind to recall his own glory. As a child of the light, reflecting his mortal life, unlike mediocre people who vainly glorify themselves, one’s divine essence becomes clearer and purer. Right now, right where you stand, can you imagine the possibility of eternal greatness? If not, stop yourself from reading any further. However, if you can imagine, then become a diligent student of eternal life, i.e. Immortality. It is true, you hold the truth deep within you. You are the mechanism for an Immortal life. There are countless books and vain efforts to which to guide your quest; but, it is you, working through God, which holds the key. The key is inside you, the lock just needs to be turned.

Nevertheless, it is because of gross blindness, which covers the earth, that this veil of ignorance even exists at all. This life, right now, is appointed for each man to discover his greatness. Contact with God will fulfill this opportunity. Greatness is held within each man, but it must first be unleashed by the light. All love and all power is possible for him to glorify through divine contact. When man and God are combined a holy at-one-moment exists. Such loving power is beheld by those who are worthy.

Man’s Triumph Over Death: Part I

Adam-and-eve-evicted(2)

There is a divine essence and substance that leads to an Immortal state of existence; this, I believe, cannot be denied, but if it is denied by anyone, the result is that he will never attain the dream of Immortalism.  Therefore, the ideal of attaining Immortality aligns itself well with positive thinking and a positive lifestyle.  This, of course, brings us to the study of Albert Pike’s book Morals and Dogma (1872). After reading his book twice, I felt very comfortable with his work, and even felt that I understood his book better than most Pike scholars; however, I was wrong. You see, it was not until I read Elphas Levi’s various writings, did I truly understand what Pike was ultimately writing about. In short, only after reading Levi did I understand that both men were writing about attaining an Immortal state of existence. Let me explain some of the requirements for Immortalism.

Since the beginning of recorded history, man has dreamt of Immortality. Whatever man can think, or has thought of, has already been inscribed by our creator in heaven; there is nothing new, and we were made in God’s image. Therefore, everything that comes from us was created by God; including our thoughts, goals, feelings, images, visions and aspirations.

The basis of all true and everlasting creation is love; just like God, we are all creators of our own reality. Those who use the tools of love to create will never become self-righteous, bigoted or fanatical; such things are tools of the ignorant, and the unenlightened – i.e. Mortals. Much of this creation is done in silence, with no fanfare or adoration. Like all true secrets, they must be attained silently alone. There is never any boasting; for such behavior will result in the discontinuance of Immortal blessings. Yes, the secret of Immortality comes to only a few. It is an individual path, often done alone and guided only by God.

One travels this secret path with the creator in isolation; it is an inner road of blessings and goodness, and is well out of the reach of most aspirants. The key that opens this gate, which leads to the narrow path, can only be granted by God, and is awarded slowly and in time. Little by little the aspirant receives his lessons and messages through his self-continualness, persistent study and incessant probing.

These powerful blessings are constant, but silent. One must give in order to receive. The wages of sin is death, and the wages of love is life.  Humbled humility leads to abundance, while self-satisfaction results in scarcity. Higher spiritual and physical attainment is the aim of the Immortal aspirant, and is rarely realized, and even less so, sustained. The aspirant lives as long as he does not fail to adhere to the designer’s beliefs and principles. Individual pride and pretentious behavior are replaced by His corresponding compassion and sympathy for his creations. In short, the absence of love is hate, which leads to death.

Each Immortal aspirant has the right to the LIGHT from within his inner BEING. It matters little if misfortune or sorrow has sought to submerge the aspirants goal; what matters is the response of the aspirant. If he responds with LOVE to any resultant harm, his course will still and forever remain the same. However, if hate is his response, the results of such behavior will be unmeasurably bleak. You see, as one lovingly issues his command for LIGHT, like, “Let there be Light” within me, he will able to step aside and witness all trepidation, discordance, error and wickedness will disappear from his eternal life. It is this ability to command the LIGHT in all experiences and circumstances that sets the aspirant apart from the multitude of non-believers – i.e. Mortals. Learning to walk fully clothed in the LIGHT is what frees the body and spirit from grief, disease, discomfort and even death.

Up until now, very few people have been able to lift their eyes upon the horizon to behold this ineffable POWER.  Faith itself is born and fulfilled out of the unviable; only the impossible gives meaning to faith. One of the best gifts that man can receive is the spiritual POWER of discernment, which is gifted by God. Such gifts are available to every man; therefore, it is man’s refusal to accept this gift that separates him from Immortality, not God’s refusal to give it. More information to follow next month!

Beyond Mere Mortalism

aaaaa

I readily admit, my upbringing was pretty much like everyone else; at least in the sense that I was taught Mortalism, which is “the belief that human beings are not naturally immortal…” Therefore, any suggestion that Immortality is a possibility is often dismissed by the population at large; yet, stories of Immortals abound. Is it just a hope of living forever that drives these stories, or could there possibly be some, even a little, truth to Immortality.

My research has found a clear and distinct link between moral behavior and the achievement of Immortality. To start, let’s take a look at the words of Eliphas Levi:

“When the masters in alchemy say that little time and money are needed to accomplish the works of science, above all when they affirm that one vessel is alone needed, when they speak of the great and unique Athanor which all can use, which is ready to each man’s hand, which all possess without knowing it, they allude to philosophical and moral alchemy” (Eliphas Levi, The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic, 1854, p. 59). 

Of course, an Athanor is a unique oven; it even goes by the names, Philosophical furnace, Furnace of Arcana, or the Tower furnace. This is a reference to the Philosophers Stone and the Great Arcana, which is the quest for Immortality. The metaphor of cooking or heating something has several uses; but for the sake of this conversation, let’s just discuss the cooking or making of a moral man. Morality can best be defined as:

a body of standards or principles derived from a code of conduct from a particular philosophy, religion, or culture, or it can derive from a standard that a person believes should be universal. Morality may also be specifically synonymous with “goodness” or “rightness”… Immorality is the active opposition to morality (i.e. opposition to that which is good or right), while amorality is variously defined as an unawareness of, indifference toward, or disbelief in any set of moral standards or principles.

The first and perhaps biggest lesson to learn, if one wants to attain an Immortal state, is that He must be a Man with a high moral character. Let us again take a closer look at Levi’s quote from above, but before you reread it again, please take a closer look from this perspective, and ask yourself these questions, what is meant by “little time and money” is needed, or perhaps, what is the “one vessel,” or again, what is within reach of each “man’s hand,” and what does “each person possess,” and of course, the indirect reference to the Philosophers Stone and the Great Arcana, which is a reference to Immortality. Here it is again:

“When the masters in alchemy say that little time and money are needed to accomplish the works of science, above all when they affirm that one vessel is alone needed, when they speak of the great and unique Athanor which all can use, which is ready to each man’s hand, which all possess without knowing it, they allude to philosophical and moral alchemy” (Eliphas Levi, The Doctrine of Transcendental Magic, 1854, p. 59).

In other words, you too possess the gift of Immortality. Therefore, the study and mastery of moral behavior is essential to the attainment of Immortality, which brings us to the study of Albert Pike and his book Morals and Dogma (1872). So many people, even Freemasons, don’t truly understand his book or the principle reason for his writing of it; they simply dismiss it as either too difficult to read, or utter nonsense. Nevertheless, if one really takes the time to understand his writings, and not just dismiss it based on other peoples limited knowledge of it, they too would find countless wonders.

I have heard and read this saying, time and time again, “A god in the making,” or variants thereof. In short, that means once you have attained your Immortal status, you have become a god. No, this is not blasphemy. In all actuality, we were made in God’s image; and since God is Immortal, we can become an Immortal as well. Nevertheless, in order to gain that stature, one must also attain traits like God; this is where the moral lessons come in. Albert Pike was clear when he wrote about our current moral state:

Remember that every moral characteristic of man finds its prototype among creatures of lower intelligence that the cruel foulness of the hyena, the savage rapacity of the wolf, the merciless rage of the tiger, the crafty treachery of the panther, are found among mankind, and ought to excite no other emotion, when found in the man, than when found in the beast. Why should the true man be angry with the geese that hiss, the peacocks that strut, the asses that bray, and the apes that imitate and chatter, although they wear the human form (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 76)?

Simply stated, we humans no longer seek godlike stature, which coincides with the current disbelief in Immortality. Nevertheless, Eliphas Levi, Pike’s principle teacher and the man that most influenced his writings, wrote that through the use of temperance, which can be defined as, “moderation or self-restraint in action, statement, etc.; self-control,” we may in fact gain Immortality:

Temperance, tranquillity of soul, simplicity of character, calmness and rationality of will, these things not only make us happy but strong and well. By growth in reason and goodness man becomes immortal. We are the authors of our own destiny, and God does not save us apart from our own concurrence. There is no death for the sage; death is a phantom, made horrible by the weakness and ignorance of the vulgar(Eliphas Levi, Doctrine of Transcendental Magic, 1854, p. 96).

Did you get that? Through goodness, temperance and reason, man can gain Immortality. Death is, in fact, a phantom, which is only made possible by one’s ignorance and weakness. To go a little deeper, Levi also stated that the majority of our physical ills are due to our mortal sins. This leads to physical death:

“THE MAJORITY of our physical complaints come from our moral diseases, according to the one and universal dogma, and by reason of the law of analogies. A great passion to which we abandon ourselves corresponds always to a great malady in store. Mortal sins are so named because they cause death physically and positively(Eliphas Levi, Doctrine of Transcendental Magic, 1854, p. 96).

Sadly, we live in a world of illusions, or as Levi firmly stated, “How pitiable are men in their ignorance, but how they would despise themselves if only they came to know!” Came to know what? Simply stated, the truth that we do in fact have options, if we only sought them.
