Claustrum Oil: An Immortal Video Lesson by Hank Kraychir

On Saturday, May 4, 2019, I had the privilege to speak at the Cryptic Education Series: Consciousness event at the San Bernardino Valley Scottish Rite. The event was open to the public and well received, which included many Masons, married couples, and even some young men who wanted to know more about how the Claustrum Oil works towards a person’s consciousness and Immortality. The following video was broken down to into four 30 minute sections, over two hours long; so you can easily come back and finish the video at a later time. Keep an open mind and enjoy!!!

Bitcoin (Gold-Sun), Litecoin (Silver-Moon) and Etherium (Ether-Ethereal Realm) are Immortal Money!


As a student of the Masonic esoteric sciences, and as an investor in the world’s next money, the cryptocurrency market, I have discovered a unique parallel. And as a believer in God’s plan for humanity, I contend there are no accidents in this universe. You see, most logical minded people could easily dismiss one coincidence, and in some cases even two, but never three. Such is the case with the top three cryptocurrencies today, Bitcoin, Litecoin and Etherium.

Bitcoin is commonly called gold in the investment world, while Litecoin is often referred to as silver; and most interestingly, Etherium is named Ether for short, and is a fuel for other crypto coin transactions. Well, any knowledgeable student of Freemasonry, and the esoteric sciences, will immediate see another connection. Like that of gold, which often refers to the sun (male), while silver correlates to the moon (female), and ether relates to the etheric realm, and other etheric terms, like that of the etheric body, etc. Let me explain further.

Bitcoin: according to Wikipedia,

Bitcoin (₿) is a cryptocurrency, a form of electronic cash. It is a decentralized digital currency without a central bank or single administrator that can be sent from user to user on the peer-to-peer bitcoin network without the need for intermediaries. Transactions are verified by network nodes through cryptography and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Bitcoin was invented by an unknown person or group of people using the name Satoshi Nakamoto and released as open-source software in 2009. Bitcoins are created as a reward for a process known as mining. They can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services. Research produced by the University of Cambridge estimates that in 2017, there were 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin.

Litecoin: again, according to Wikipedia,

Litecoin (LTC or Ł) is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency and open-source software project released under the MIT/X11 license. Creation and transfer of coins is based on an open source cryptographic protocol and is not managed by any central authority. Litecoin was an early bitcoin spinoff or altcoin, starting in October 2011. In technical details, litecoin is nearly identical to Bitcoin. Litecoin was released via an open-source client on GitHub on October 7, 2011 by Charlie Lee, a Google employee and former Engineering Director at Coinbase. The Litecoin network went live on October 13, 2011. It was a fork of the Bitcoin Core client, differing primarily by having a decreased block generation time (2.5 minutes), increased maximum number of coins, different hashing algorithm (scrypt, instead of SHA-256), and a slightly modified GUI. During the month of November 2013, the aggregate value of Litecoin experienced massive growth which included a 100% leap within 24 hours. Litecoin reached a $1 billion market capitalization in November 2013. In May 2017, Litecoin became the first of the top 5 (by market cap) cryptocurrencies to adopt Segregated Witness. Later in May of the same year, the first Lightning Network transaction was completed through Litecoin, transferring 0.00000001 LTC from Zürich to San Francisco in under one second.

Etherium: and finally, according to Wikipedia,

Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. It supports a modified version of Nakamoto consensus via transaction-based state transitions. Ether is a token whose blockchain is generated by the Ethereum platform. Ether can be transferred between accounts and used to compensate participant mining nodes for computations performed. Ethereum provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes. The virtual machine’s instruction set, in contrast to others like Bitcoin Script, is thought to be Turing-complete. “Gas”, an internal transaction pricing mechanism, is used to mitigate spam and allocate resources on the network. Ethereum was proposed in late 2013 by Vitalik Buterin, a cryptocurrency researcher and programmer. Development was funded by an online crowdsale that took place between July and August 2014.Ethereum is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform and operating system featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality.

Ethereum provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes.

One must also think like an ancient alchemist in order to truly understand this relationship. In ancient alchemy, the goal was to transform lead, or base metals, into gold. This may also have been a metaphor for a personal and physical transformation, which is needed to gain an Immortal state of existence. Several Masonic sources use the word gold when referencing the sun, because of its color, and its relationship to light. And of course, silver is considered a white metal, and relates to the moon, or lessor light. Likewise, the sun (gold) is considered masculine, while the moon is considered feminine; similar to the relationship between the pillars Jachin and Boaz, or even Ging and Gang, as above so below, and so forth and so on.

The ether on the other hand is the space between objects, which cannot be seen; but it exists because of its known power (or fuel). Moreover, each person has an etheric body. Once this body’s frequency is raised, it can communicate with and see forces in the ethereal realm. It is also said that spirits, both good and bad live in this realm.

So, why would anyone, or a group of people, use these three terms, Bitcoin=gold, Litecoin=silver and Etherium=ether, or fuel, to promote this new money. I am certain many people will come up with their own ideas; sadly, some with nefarious connections. But for me, I personally think along the lines of divine intervention. The probability of three different creators, of three different cryptocurrencies, aligning these concepts is almost unmeasurable. As a believer in collective consciousness as a means of promoting God’s will and desires, there is no doubt in my mind that it was God who allowed these esoteric beliefs to unite under the banner of cryptocurrency!

Therefore, with the idea that God had a hand in these three currencies, we must now look at its purpose, and the reasons why this is important  Please remember, God uses both good and evil for his own purposes; of which I can personally attest to this doctrinal belief. As such, the alignment of these three cryptocurrencies was no accident, and was done for a specific purpose, for which we can now speculate.

Think about our current economic system for a while; for decades now, economics have speculated about a cataclysmic economic event that would reset the system. The national debt is fast approaching 23 trillion dollars; as such, how our government has been able to keep this system in check is nothing less than a miracle. No other country has ever been able to reach such debt levels. Indeed, from a historical perspective, this economic accomplishment is nothing less than phenomenal. Nevertheless, the question remains, will it continue? History is clear, such debt levels do not end well. History is littered with nations that dismissed the laws of economics, which is where we are now. We, as a nation, have been living on borrowed time. This brings us to the reset.

Many people have speculated that these three cryptocurrencies will be the savior of the United States, and the world. Let me explain. Virtually every country in the world has what is called a parallel economy. In short, this means the people have a monetary alternative to their home country’s money. Like Mexico, which uses the Mexican Peso; but still uses the United States Dollar alongside the Peso. So when the Peso begins to drop in value, the average investor or individual in Mexico can turn in their Pesos for Dollars. Even the United States use to have a parallel currency; it was Gold and Silver at one time. And many people today, still speculate that the United States will return to a Gold backed dollar in the future. This may be possible; however, most people today don’t hold physical dollars, so why should we expect them to walk around with Gold and Silver coinage in their pocket. I do not think this is a realistic measure anymore. I do, however, believe that a crypto type currency, much like credit cards today, will solve the economic usage problem. And yes, cryptocurrency credit cards are in development, as I write and you read this passage.

Furthermore, in support of the above opinions given by your author, I recommend the following text, which points out that Bitcoin will be the escape hatch for our economic system when it collapses:

Bitcoin may be a way out, or “an escape hatch,” as put by ShapeShift chief executive and crypto entrepreneur Erik Voorhees. Bitcoin may be the best way to provide people with a lucrative way to prepare for imminent global recession and collapse of the debt-based system.

Bitcoin is the sensational decentralized cryptocurrency that could be the answer to central banking – which has caused all of the recessions in the recent past. The economy’s outlook is becoming so horrifying that Ray Dalio, the co-founder of the world’s largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, recently drew eerie parallels between today and the Great Depression. In a comment made at Davos, the world-renowned investor explained that from 1929 to 1932, there was a lot of “printing of money, and purchases of financial assets,” much like today.

And he isn’t the only one who thinks we could all live through another depression. Peter Schiff, infamous for his uncanny ability to call the Great Recession before the media’s talking heads did, also believes another Great Depression is coming down the pipes, and this one will be worse than the last.

This entire system the central banks have crafted for us will all come crashing down at some point, and decentralization will be the key to ensuring it never has to happen again. For all intents and purposes, the overall economy seems to be doing better than ever, just ask the mainstream media. But that’s all happening while certain fiscal and economic indicators aren’t looking all too hot.

One of the biggest concerns is the global debt crisis. Debt across the board, especially sovereign debt, is passing all-time highs on a daily basis. In fact, since 2008’s fiscal debacle, the nominal value of all forms of debt has increased by dozens of trillions of dollars, as central banks across the globe bolster their balance sheets, firms borrow more to promote their growth, and consumers spend more than ever, all while lenders are seemingly becoming more lenient with each passing day, wrote NewsBTC.

According to Trace Mayer, a long-time advocate for Bitcoin and an anti-centralization free thinker, society has accumulated $87 trillion more debt as humanity’s relentless lust for growth continues, accentuating that governments and society at large haven’t learned from past mistakes. History repeats itself and few on this planet have learned the lessons of the past.

The Peterson Foundation, an American financial services group that is focused on amending the nation’s economic issues, stated that the fiscal situation is “not only unsustainable but accelerating.” And the Federal Reserve has been put into “checkmate” by the very system they designed. There isn’t anything they will be able to.

Will you use Bitcoin as an “escape hatch?”

Furthermore, adoption is already underway; here is a limited list from the article, 10 Signs Cryptocurrency Adoption is Happening Right Now; they are:

  • Several US States are moving towards accepting Bitcoin for tax payments
  • Argentina begins accepting Bitcoin for public transit fees
  • Germany’s largest food delivery app now accepts Bitcoin payments
  • You can now use the lightning network to buy Dominos pizza with Bitcoin
  • Australian property owners are accepting Bitcoin for real estate sales
  • National governments are using Bitcoin to pay for trade deals
  • Philippines Central Bank helps launch a two-way Bitcoin ATM
  • Wyoming becomes the first US state to enact comprehensive blockchain-friendly legislation
  • Latin American countries are adopting cryptocurrency at record rates
  • Japan’s largest online retailer is pro-cryptocurrency

Therefore, when our currency starts to falter sometime in the future, we now have an adaptable alternative, a parallel money if you will, which will allow the citizenry of the world to quickly adapt to. At this point in time, I do not see any other realistic alternative money that will serve humanity like that of Bitcoin, Litecoin and Etherium. As such, please prepare accordingly, and may God bless us all during this scary transition.

The Nine Great Truths in Masonry and the Sacred Mysteries


In Albert Pike’s book Morals and Dogma (1872), starting on page 533, he discussed the nine great truths in Freemasonry and the sacred mysteries; this article will discuss each of them in detail for the betterment of the ardent student of the Craft.

The first great truth of Freemasonry is, no man has ever seen God. In truth, God is “One, Eternal, All-Powerful, All-Wise, Infinitely Just, Merciful, Benevolent, and Compassionate, Creator and Preserver of all things, the Source of Light and Life, coextensive with Time and Space.” It was His thought that “created the universe, and all living things,” including the soul or body of man, which can be permanent, “while every thing beside is a perpetual genesis.” It should be stressed that this time that the ancients called the human body the soul; sadly, the topic of the soul of often confused with the spirit of man. Moreover, the reference to genesis, which is defined as, “the origin or coming into being of something,” may refer to perpetual life and rebirth of his creation? Here is the original paragraph regarding man’s inability to see God:

No man hath seen God at any time. He is One, Eternal, All-Powerful, All- Wise, Infinitely Just, Merciful, Benevolent, and Compassionate, Creator and Preserver of all things, the Source of Light and Life, coextensive with Time and Space; Who thought, and with the Thought created the universe and all living things, and the souls of men: That Is :—the Permanent; while every thing beside is a perpetual genesis (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 533).

The second great truth is the soul (human body) of man is Immortal. Indeed, Pike uses conflicting language to hide this true meaning; in fact, most people will immediately select that portion of his writing most familiar to themself. Yet, is there a deeper or more hidden meaning? In fact there is, let me explain. First, throw out the veiled language of “to be separated therefrom at death, and return to God who gave it,” and focus on the obvious links to Immortality. Like, the meaning of Immortal, meaning, “exempt from death“, or Immortality, which means, “Immortality is eternal life, being exempt from death, unending existence.” This means, no death stage. Moreover, since the human body is a Temple of God, God lives in man through his spirit; and since man is made in God’s image, he too is a spirit. Man does not have to die to be a spirit, or have the spirit of God in him. Thus, man and God are, “one and identical, a living spirit.” If God does not find a man worthy of Immortality, death is the result, thus, the spirit will leave the body, but this is not the soul, as I have written about in several of my previous postings, including, “Claustrum Oil: An Immortal Lesson,” and “Mortal Obstacles to Immortality and the Seven Deadly Sins.” No one is doubting the separation of the spirit upon death, but again, the spirit is not the soul, “a spark of the Great Central Light, that hath entered into and dwells in the body; to be separated therefrom at death, and return to God who gave it,” and spirit, “still exists and possesses activity and intelligence, even as it existed in God, before it was enveloped in the body.” You see, by dissecting the assumed paragraph below, its true meaning can be revealed, but such knowledge is only given to the worthy student of allegorical thinking and knowledge:

“The Soul of Man is Immortal; not the result of organization, nor an aggregate of modes of action of matter, nor a succession of phenomena and perceptions; but an Existence, one and identical, a living spirit, a spark of the Great Central Light, that hath entered into and dwells in the body; to be separated therefrom at death, and return to God who gave it: that doth not disperse or vanish at death, like breath or a smoke, nor can be annihilated ; but still exists and possesses activity and intelligence, even as it existed in God, before it was enveloped in the body (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 533).

The third great Truth in Masonry is there is an impulse within man to do right, which is a deterrent to crime; this desire is a old has God himself, who is the ruler of heaven and earth. like the King of Rome, Tarquin, such behavior cannot be written into law; for it is guilt that balances our nature. It is not a written law that deters men; no, its man’s relationship with Divine Intelligence. This natural and deeper behavior motivates all men worthy of God presence:

The impulse which directs to right conduct, and deters from crime, is not only older than the ages of nations and cities, but coeval (same age) with that Divine Being who sees and rules both heaven and earth. Nor did Tarquin (Roman King) less violate that Eternal Law, though in his reign there might have been no written law at Rome against such violence; for the principle that impels us to right conduct, and warns us against guilt, springs out of the nature of things. It did not begin to be law when it was first written, nor was it originated; but it is coeval (same age) with the Divine Intelligence itself.  The consequence of virtue is not to be made the end thereof; and laudable performances must have deeper roots, motives, and instigations, to give them the stamp of virtues (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 533).

The fourth great Truth in Masonry is moral truths are just as absolute as metaphysical truths. Actually, God himself does not change the law of effect without cause, or a “phenomena without substance.” Like that of differing between sin and evil, or love and truth, and to moderate one’s passion. Yet there is more, Pike further wrote that the principles of morality are accepted truths, like that of the principles of geometry; and man’s moral laws are necessary like that of nature, for they have existed since the beginning. That these eternal laws continue to exist and are no longer dependant on his will. His essence is, in fact, truth and justice; not because of his unlimited power or our feebleness, but it is our natural duty to observe them, for it is the right thing to do.  God is the arbiter of morality, not by force, but by the sheer will of mankind’s desire to please the creator. It is by his intelligence that man aspires to fulfil his destiny:

The moral truths are as absolute as the metaphysical truths. Even the Deity cannot make it that there should be effects without a cause, or phenomena without substance. As little could He make it to be sinful and evil to respect our pledged word, to love truth, to moderate our passions. The principles of Morality are axioms, like the principles of Geometry. The moral laws are the necessary relations that flow from the nature of things, and they are not created by, but have existed eternally in God. Their continued existence does not depend upon the exercise of His will. Truth and Justice are of His essence. Not because we are feeble and God omnipotent, is it our duty to obey his law. We may be forced, but are not under obligation, to obey the stronger. God is the principle of Morality, but not by His mere will, which, abstracted from all other of His attributes, would be neither just nor unjust. Good is the expression of His will, in so far as that will is itself the expression of eternal, absolute, uncreated justice, which is in God, which His will did not create ; but which it executes and promulgates, as our will proclaims and promulgates and executes the idea of the good which is in us. He has given us the law of Truth and Justice ; but He has not arbitrarily instituted that law. Justice is inherent in His will, because it is contained in His intelligence and wisdom, in His very nature and most intimate essence (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 534).

The fifth great truth in Masonry teaches that there is a distinction between Good and Evil. It further instructs us that Man is a free and intelligent being, because he is conscious of his duty and his power to do so. Moreover, it instructs initiates to naturally adhere to his obligations, to act independent of any contract, and to be aware that the laws of attraction are indeed powerful. That temptations can be resisted; and “that man is not governed by a resistless Fate or inexorable Destiny,” he is free to choose. And finally, that we may attempt to deny our free will and agency, but nature continually pulls us to an Omnipotence of God:

There is an essential distinction between Good and Evil, what is just and what is unjust; and to this distinction is attached, for every intelligent and free creature, the absolute obligation of conforming to what is good and just. Man is an intelligent and free being,—free, because he is conscious that it is his duty, and because it is made his duty, to obey the dictates of truth and justice, and therefore he must necessarily have the power of doing so, which involves the power of not doing so ;—capable of comprehending the distinction between good and evil, justice and injustice, and the obligation which accompanies it, and of naturally adhering to that obligation, independently of any contract or positive law; capable also of resisting the temptations which, urge him toward evil and injustice, and of complying with the sacred law of eternal justice. That man is not governed by a resistless Fate or inexorable Destiny; but is free to choose between the evil and the good: that Justice and Right, the Good and Beautiful, are of the essence of the Divinity, like His Infinitude; and therefore they are laws to man: that we are conscious of our freedom to act, as we are conscious of our identity, and the continuance and connectedness of our existence ; and have the same evidence of one as of the other; and if we can put one in doubt, we have no certainty of either, and everything is unreal : that we can deny our free will and free agency, only upon the ground that they are in the nature of things impossible ; which would be to deny the Omnipotence of God (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 534).

The sixth great truth of Masonry is, moral truths are an obligation. These obligatory truths are the eye of reason and necessary for will; these being the principles of morality. And every act that contradicts these truths deserve to be repressed by punishment and force if necessary, i.e. the rule of law. But ultimately, God is the decider of that punishment, and that such punishments should not be dealt with by the whims of man:

The necessity of practising the moral truths, is obligation. The moral truths, necessary in the eye of reason, are obligatory on the will. The moral obligation, like the moral truth that is its foundation, is absolute. As the necessary truths are not more or less necessary, so the obligation is not more or less obligatory. There are degrees of importance among different obligations ; but none in the obligation itself. We are not nearly obliged, almost obliged. We are wholly so, or not at all. If there be any place of refuge to which we can escape from the obligation, it ceases to exist. If the obligation is absolute, it is immutable and universal. For if that of to-day may not be that of to-morrow, if what is obligatory on me may not be obligatory on you, the obligation would differ from itself, and be variable and contingent. This fact is the principle of all morality. That every act contrary to right and justice, deserves to be repressed by force, and punished when committed, equally in the absence of any law or contract: that man naturally recognizes the distinction between the merit and demerit of actions, as he does that between justice and injustice, honesty and dishonesty; and feels, without being taught, and in the absence of law or contract, that it is wrong for vice to be rewarded or go unpunished, and for virtue to be punished or left unrewarded: and that, the Deity being infinitely just and good, it must follow as a necessary and inflexible law that punishment shall be the result of Sin, its inevitable and natural effect and corollary, and not a mere arbitrary vengeance (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 535).

The seventh great truth of Masonry is respecting the rights of others, and we should do good, and be charitable of a man worthy of an Etheric body. Therefore, charity is the law and an obligation to us, because we will not be satisfied until all suffering and distress are no more. We are distributors of all of God’s goodness; there are no limits to our charity, which goes beyond our mere obligation to the Craft. We do not return evil for evil, or rejoice in the misfortune of others. Our aim is to live peaceably with all of God’s dominion. Since the beginning of time, this has been the aim of Masonry:

The immutable law of God requires, that besides respecting the absolute rights of others, and being merely just, we should do good, be charitable, and obey the dictates of the generous and noble sentiments of the soul (Etheric Body). Charity is a law, because our conscience is not satisfied nor at ease if we have not relieved the suffering, the distressed, and the destitute. It is to give that which he to whom you give has no right to take or demand. To be charitable is obligatory on us. We are the Almoners of God’s bounties. But the obligation is not so precise and inflexible at the obligation to be just. Charity knows neither rule nor limit. It goes beyond all obligation. Its beauty consists in its liberty. “He that loveth not, knoweth not God; for God is love. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and His love is perfected in us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him.” To be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; to relieve the necessities of the needy, and be generous, liberal, and hospitable; to return to no man evil for evil; to rejoice at the good fortune of others, and sympathize with them in their sorrows and reverses; to live peaceably with all men, and repay injuries with benefits and kindness; these are the sublime dictates of the Moral Law, taught from the infancy of the world, by Masonry (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 536).

The eighth great truth in Masonry are the laws that regulate and control God’s Universe are those of harmony and motion. That we only have a limited capacity to see this connection; yet, we can see the end results of such results, like that of evil compared to perfection and goodness; and patience vs. suffering, etc. Only because, without them, man would simply give way to idleness and indolence; there must be light to have shadows:

That the laws which control and regulate the Universe of God, are those of motion and harmony. We see only the isolated incidents of things, and with our feeble and limited capacity and vision cannot discern their connection, nor the mighty chords that make the apparent discord perfect harmony. Evil is merely apparent, and all is in reality good and perfect. For pain and sorrow, persecution and hardships, affliction and destitution, sickness and death are but the means, by which alone the noblest virtues could be developed. Without them, and without sin and error, and wrong and outrage, as there can be no effect without an adequate cause, there could be neither patience under suffering and distress ; nor prudence in difficulty; nor temperance to avoid excess; nor courage to meet danger; nor truth, when to speak the truth is hazardous; aor love, when it is met with ingratitude; nor charity for the needy and destitute; nor forbearance and forgiveness of injuries: nor toleration of erroneous opinions; nor charitable judgment and construction of men’s motives and actions; nor patriotism, nor heroism, nor honor, nor self-denial nor generosity. These and most other virtues and excellencies would have no existence, and even their names be unknown; and the poor virtues that still existed, would scarce deserve the name; for life would be one flat, dead, low level, above which none of the lofty elements of human nature would emerge; and man would lie lapped in contented indolence and idleness, a mere worthless negative, instead of the brave, strong soldier against the grim legions of Evil and rude Difficulty (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 536).

The ninth great truth in Masonry is that justice, wisdom and the mercy of God are perfect and form the trinity of attributes. Moreover, that the law of merit and demerit are also truth, in that goodness deserves to be awarded, while badness should be punished. And that God is representative of all greatness; yet, evil and oppression still exist to give man options. Yet, man still retains the ability to repent and change, despite his previous past. And most importantly, “That all the powers of man’s soul (body) tend to infinity (Ethereal Realm),” which, as many of the followers of this blog already know, the soul is the physical body, not the spirit. This, of course, is further confirmation that man is intended to live forever. Furthermore, the statement, “the universal hope of another life,” refers to an etheric body, which is a necessary connection to the ethereal realm. This belief is further confirmed by the statement, “for man is not an orphan; but hath a Father near at hand,” or simply stated such beliefs are within the reach of each man who desires such a lofty goal; for we know that the “universe is one great Harmony.” Indeed, the souls of each man (body) originally came from God and his domain, were once pure and can return to this original state of perfect bliss and harmony with His creation:

The great leading doctrine of this Degree;—that the Justice, the Wisdom, and the Mercy of God are alike infinite, alike perfect, and yet do not in the least jar or conflict one with the other; but form a Great Perfect Trinity of Attributes, three and yet one: that, the principle of merit and demerit being absolute, and every good action deserving to be rewarded, and every bad one to be punished, and God being as just as He is good; and yet the cases constantly recurring in this world, in which crime and cruelty, oppression, tyranny, and injustice are prosperous, happy, fortunate, and self-contented, and rule and reign, and enjoy all the blessings of God’s beneficence, while the virtuous and good are unfortunate, miserable, destitute, pining away in dungeons, perishing with cold, and famishing with hunger, slaves of oppression, and instruments and victims of the miscreants that govern; so that this world, if there were no existence beyond it, would be one great theatre of wrong and injustice, proving God wholly disregardful of His own necessary law of merit and demerit;—it follows that there must be another life in which these apparent wrongs shall be repaired: That all the powers of man’s soul tend to infinity; and his indomitable instinct of immortality, and the universal hope of another life, testified by all creeds, all poetry, all traditions, establish its certainty; for man is not an orphan; but hath a Father near at hand: and the day must come when Light and Truth, and the Just and Good shall be victorious, and Darkness, Error, Wrong, and Evil be annihilated, and known no more forever: That the universe is one great Harmony, in which, according to the faith of all nations, deep-rooted in all hearts in the primitive ages, Light will ultimately prevail over Darkness, and the Good Principle over the Evil: and the myriad souls that have emanated from the Divinity, purified and ennobled by the struggle here below, will again return to perfect bliss in the bosom of God, to offend against whose laws will then be no longer possible (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 537).

In conclusion, I certainly hope you enjoyed this particular exercise; the parsing of words from ancient text and ideas are certainly not for everyone. No, only the student who seeks higher light will truly come to understand the above related lessons and their relationship to Immortality. The first step is perhaps the hardest, give up your strict mortal thinking and modern training, and learn to accept the ancient ways, and you will find many incredible mysteries. As Above, So Below!

Operative vs Speculative Masons, and the Silent Ideological Civil War

Friend to Friend

Without a doubt, Operative Masons dominate the power structure of contemporary Freemasonry in the United States, by way of their sheer numbers, which has led to differing viewpoints about our ancient roots, purpose and future. This silent ideological civil war often leads to dogmatic bickerings, which has a chilling effect on the Craft.

I can tell you from personal experience that many well intentioned Operative Masons get on the Internet, as arbiters of all Masonic truth, and dictate their views about Freemasonry from the Operative perspective; and in the process, go out of their way to slander a Speculative brother, simply because they truly don’t understand that the Craft was specifically designed for both perspectives. In fact, just the other day, I was told that I was spreading misinformation about the upper degrees of the Craft, that the only level that mattered was the Blue Lodge; here is what was written on my Facebook page, Immortal Light:

There are NO uppers levels of Freemasonry! Ant Mason mat petition either York or Scottish Rite or any of the other Bodies. Some organizations are by invitation. However they are NOT upper levels. If you believe that then you are NOT a Mason or have no true understanding of who and what we are.

We must forgive his bad spelling, but otherwise, because of my view, I am somehow not a Mason, and I have no true understanding about the Craft. He only knew to attack when confronted with a view different than his own. I personally did not respond to this brother; rather, I used this quote from Albert Pike to make my point:

Assuredly, we have no apologies to make to Blue Masonry for daring to devote ourselves to so holy a cause. … We do not reply to the ridicule or invectives of those, nor seek to confute or enlighten them, who are content with the Masonry of the Blue Lodges. What they write against the Higher Degrees can deter none from seeking our Sanctuaries who are fit to enter them and are wanted.

Yes, Pike said there were higher or upper degrees in Freemasonry, and that we, as Scottish Rite Masons, don’t agree with our Blue Lodge Operative brethren about our higher Speculative purposes. In fact, let’s take a look at the Speculative vs Operative perspective on the origin of the Craft.

We will start with a quote from 33 degree Scottish Rite Grand Archivist and Grand Historian Arturo De Hoyos, who wrote the following in his Scottish Rite Ritual Monitor and Guide (2010, p. 8):

Early Masonic Origins: The search for Freemasonry’s origins has resulted in two schools of thought: (1) “the authentic school,” which, rely on the disciple of historical research, advocates a “transitional theory” back to the operative stonemasons of Scotland and England, and (2) the “romantic school,” which believes that Masonic legends, symbolism, and circumstantial evidence points to a number of other possible origins. Among the most popular “romantic” notions of origin are Solomon’s Temple, the Tower of Babel, the medieval Knights Templar, the Hermeticists and/or Rosicrucians, the Essenes (a Jewish sect which existed about two millennia ago), the ancient Egyptians, and any number of the ancient mystery religions and/or schools.

There you have it, one of the most prominent Freemasons in the United States today readily admits there are two distinct beliefs within the Craft. De Hoyos’ declared the two philosophies as the Authentic School or Operative StoneMasons, and the Romantic School; I simply defined them differently, calling them the Operatives and the Speculatives.

Despite this knowledge, Operative Blue Lodge Masons continue to adhere to their dogmatic belief that Freemasonry started with the formation of the 1717 Grand Lodge of England era; nevertheless, Speculative Freemasonry does not adhere to this belief, it considers the foundation of Freemasonry with that of Adam and Eve, which the 1723 Constitution of Free-Masonry clearly stated: “So when it was written, “No doubt Adam taught his Sons Geometry, and the use of it, in the several Arts and Crafts convenient, at least, for those early Times…” (p. 2), what did this mean? The story of Adam and Eve is nothing but a metaphor for men and women in the beginning of creation by God.”

Nevertheless, here we see Pike writing about the different perspectives between Blue Lodge Operative history and that of the Scottish Rite Speculative history:

Even Blue Masonry cannot trace back its authentic history, with its present Degrees, further than the year 1700, if so far. But, by whatever name it was known in this or the other country, Masonry existed as it now exists, the same in spirit and at heart, not only when Solomon builded the temple, but centuries before— before even the first colonies emigrated into Southern India, Persia, and Egypt, from the cradle of the human race (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 208).

Regardless of this fact, the small, but sternly positioned members of the Speculative viewpoint, often have to hide their perspective, otherwise they become alienated by the Operative membership. This too has led to many members leaving the Craft. Indeed, there exists a comfortable home for Operative Masons who seek the comfort of Brotherly love; but the newer and younger Speculative desiring Masons, who do not find like minded members, continue to exit an an alarming rate.

Here we see Pike again discussing the higher (or upper) degrees of Freemasonry and its true purpose. This time his thinking revolves around the issue of advancing men knowledgeable in philosophy; that they be faithful to the spirit of the Craft; and perhaps most importantly, they correct the abuses and offenses that have crept into Freemasonry, and be a great teacher of Mankind. In short, The higher degrees of Freemasonry are designed to be taken down to the lower levels in order to correct the errors that have inflicted it since the beginning of time itself; but sadly, it still does not:

IN THE HIGHER DEGREES those only should be received who have sufficient reading and information to discuss the great questions of philosophy. From them the Orators of the Lodges should be selected, as well as those of the Councils and Chapters. They are charged to suggest such measures as are necessary to make Masonry entirely faithful to the spirit of its institution, both as to its charitable purposes, and the diffusion of light and knowledge; such as are needed to correct abuses that have crept in, and offences against the rules and general spirit of the Order; and such as will tend to make it, as it was meant to be, the great Teacher of Mankind (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 332).

You see, the Blue Degrees, or Operatives, are the outer court of the Temple. Yes, they have been purposely misled; they were never intended to know the truth without higher levels of instruction; this knowledge is intended for the Princes of Masonry or higher Degrees. The mass of Freemasons, or Operative Masons, continue to attempt to understand, but without advancing into the higher, or Speculative Degrees, they remain lost for their lack of knowledge, like the head of the Sphinx buried in the sand:

The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple. Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them; but it is intended that he shall imagine he understands them. Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry. The whole body of the Royal and Sacerdotal Art was hidden so carefully, centuries since, in the High Degrees, as that it is even yet impossible to solve many of the enigmas which they contain. It is well enough for the mass of those called Masons, to imagine that all is contained in the Blue Degrees; and whoso attempts to undeceive them will labor in vain, and without any true reward violate his obligations as an Adept. Masonry is the veritable Sphinx, buried to the head in the sands heaped round it by the ages (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1972, p. 819).

The previous statements are supported by the following example of the term “Equality and Liberty,” which meant one thing to the Operative Mason, but the Speculative Mason, or Higher Degreed Mason, retained that privileged knowledge:

The Abbe Barruel in his Memoirs for the History of Jacobinism, declares that Masonry in France gave, as its secret, the words Equality and Liberty, leaving it for every honest and religious Mason to explain them as would best suit his principles; but retained the privilege of unveiling in the higher Degrees the meaning of those words (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1972, p. 49).

Indeed, our traditions, Operative and Speculative teachings should be combined, but are now taught without meaning, which has taken our Blue Lodges even further and further from the original intent of Masonic truth. The Operative Mason is taught that there is no connection to the higher levels of the Craft; that everything they will ever need can be found in their perspectives within lower level Lodges; no need to advance. Nothing to see in the Speculative Degrees of the higher levels. Therefore, no need to read or study these Speculative ideals, which are actually the benefactors and cradle of mankind’s knowledge:

A few rudimentary lessons in architecture, a few universally admitted maxims of morality, a few unimportant traditions, whose real meaning is unknown or misunderstood, will no longer satisfy the earnest inquire after Masonic truth. Let whoso is content with these, seek to climb no higher. He who desires to understand the harmonious and beautiful proportions of Freemasonry must read, study, reflect, digest, and discriminate. The true Masonis an ardent seeker after knowledge; and he knows that both books and the antique i symbols of Masonry are vessels which come down to us full-freighted with the intellectual riches of the Past; and that in the lading of these argosies is much that sheds light on the history of Masonry, and proves its claim to be acknowledged the benefactor of mankind, born in the very cradle of the race (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1972, p. 107).

Pike also has some advice for Grand Masters of the Symbolic Lodges, or Operative Lodges; that they are to continue to restore Masonry to its “primitive purity,” or ancient ideals. Yes, that means we must adhere to our ancient teachings and roots; so much for the argument that we need to change our ways in order to attract the younger generation; absolutely not. You see, Operative Masonry continues to wonder in error; instead of improving the organization by adherence and instructing according to our ancient foundations, it continues to degenerate from this Speculative belief, often distorted by “stupidity and ignorance.” Masonry was once religious and philosophical, worthy of philanthropic endeavors; yet today, our Lodges have become less then philosophical, and without faith, making any philanthropic efforts benign and unworthy of any relationship with our creator:

As Grand Master of all Symbolic Lodges, it is your especial duty to aid in restoring Masonry to its primitive purity. You have become an instructor. Masonry long wandered in error. Instead of improving, it degenerated from its primitive simplicity, and retrograded toward a system, distorted by stupidity and ignorance, which, unable to construct a beautiful machine, made a complicated one. Less than two hundred years ago, its organization was simple, and altogether moral, its emblems, allegories, and ceremonies easy to be understood, and their purpose and object readily to be seen. It was then confined to a very small number of Degrees. Its constitutions were like those of a Society of Essenes, written in the first century of our era. There could be seen the primitive Christianity, organized into Masonry, the school of Pythagoras without incongruities or absurdities ; a Masonry simple and significant, in which it was not necessary to torture the mind to discover reasonable interpretations; a Masonry at once religious and philosophical, worthy of a good citizen and an enlightened philanthropist (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 325).

And finally, only by advancing to the higher Speculative Degrees will a Mason be granted the key to Masonic understanding, as Pike so clearly stated:

THE KEY TO THEIR TRUE MEANING IS NOT UNDISCOVERABLE. The perfect and eternal distinction of the two primitive terms of the creative syllogism (deductive reasoning), in order to attain to the demonstration of their harmony by the analogy of contraries, is the second grand principle of that occult philosophy veiled under the nameKABALAH,” and indicated by all the sacred hieroglyphs of the Ancient Sanctuaries, and of the rites, SO LITTLE UNDERSTOOD BY THE MASS OF THE INITIATES, OF THE ANCIENT AND MODERN FREE-MASONRY (Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 1872, p. 304).

So please Brethren, restrain your zeal for what you know, and be more willing to look at the other view of the Craft; for you may, in fact, find something new to add to your understanding. This is a true virtue of an enlightened Mason.

So Mote It Be!

The Great White Brotherhood


Along the lines of Immortality, there is a group of men named the Great White Brotherhood, or White Robes for short. The obvious reference to men is in the title of “Brotherhood,” meaning, “an association of men; sorry ladies. This group of ascended masters spread spiritual knowledge to worthy humans, who thereby teach others.

Countless people have talked to and been guided by them, including, but not limited to, Manly P. Hall, Helen Petrovna Blavatsky, Guy Ballard and even Aleister Crowley. Most interestingly, Ballard founded the “I AM” movement, after his meeting with Saint Germain, an Ascended Master, whose experiences were outlined in his book Unveiled Mysteries (1934). And as most followers of this blog already know, Saint Germain is a well know Immortal Mason.

Many people believe that the Great White Brotherhood are Immortal supernatural beings that have great powers, who maintain an active watch over this world. These ascended Masters continue to carry and teach ancient wisdom to only the worthy. There is no higher calling than to help humanity; as such, their sole purpose is to help and guide humanity into a greater future.

This is not a new idea, no, in fact, we see that Karl Von Eckartshausen wrote about this Brotherhood in his 1795 book The Cloud Upon the Sanctuary; yet, in his book he referred to them as the Council of Light. This immortal council of light is a tribute to the ancient Roman Empire, and is stationed in Greenland. Furthermore, Helena P. Blavatsky also referred to this Brotherhood as “Masters of the Hidden Brotherhood” or “Mahatmas” in her 1877 book Isis Unveiled. Moreover, Arthur Edward Waite hinted of a Great White Lodge, similar to that of Freemasonry, in his 1898 work, Book of Black Magic and of Pacts. Interestingly, the AMORC Rosicrucian Order believes there is a difference between the “Great White Brotherhood” and the “Great White Lodge;” that the Great White Brotherhood is the “school or fraternity” of the Great White Lodge, and that “every true student on the Path” aspires membership in this Brotherhood. As such, there is ample evidence to suggest that there may in fact be competing Immortal Brotherhoods that have taken on similar names. This aligns well with what other authors have suggested as well; which means, Immortals can’t even agree on a single path to Immortality, therefore, how are they ever going to agree on a single path for humanity. Nevertheless, as Manly P. Hall suggested in many of his writings, there are groups of Immortals guiding humanity; a sentiment I agree with. We know this, because, as suggested earlier, countless people have had contact with these Immortals, including, Manly, P. Hall, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (Theosophy), Aleister Crowley (Thelema), Alice A. Bailey (New Group of World Servers), Guy Ballard (“I AM” Activity), Geraldine Innocente (The Bridge to Freedom), Elizabeth Clare Prophet (Church Universal and Triumphant) and Benjamin Creme (Share International) (David Chase Taylor, Greenland Theory, 2014).

Moreover, Manly P Hall wrote about these groups in his book, Special Class in Secret Doctrine, about this brotherhood:

The Great White Brotherhood is composed of Initiates from all parts of the earth, and these form the invisible government of the earth. The Great White Lodge meets every seven years, and in it each of the schools of occult philosophy are represented. This group is a law-making body deciding with its clearer intelligence the needs of humanity, and seeking to meet these needs in the most efficient manner. During these meetings Beings superior to the Masters themselves are present. The power of the Adepts over the visible and invisible worlds enables them to invoke the forces of Nature to the attainment of any particular end. The Temple of the Great White Lodge, we are told, stands upon an island of Permanent Rock in the heart of the Gobi Desert of Mongolia or Mongolian Tibet” (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

Within Hall’s book, there are a series of questions to ponder; we will go over several of them now. The first being the relationship between THE SECRET DOCTRINE and that of the Great White Brotherhood:


Ans. The SECRET DOCTRINE is that knowledge concerning the laws behind life, which has always been in the possession of an illuminated few. These few have imparted these sacred Truths by word of mouth to those men or women who have prepared themselves to use this knowledge for the service and redemption of the race. The knowledge covers three general subjects, as follows: First, the knowledge of how universes and atoms are created, unfolded, and later disintegrated by the cosmic processes of Nature; second, concerning man, his place in the Plan, and how he may later become an intelligent worker with Nature for the unfoldment and redemption of himself; third, how he may learn the control the forces of Nature and to become master over the world of phenomenalistic things. The secret processes whereby these things are accomplished have never been revealed to the profane, but are in truth the SECRET DOCTRINE, which has existed in the world since the beginning of intelligence. This WISDOM is God’s great gift to man, which Deity has revealed through world Saviors, Adepts and Initiates (His chosen Sons) according to the needs of races and peoples. “THE SECRET DOCTRINEas written by H. P. B. with the permission of her teachers, constitutes a fractional part of this great hidden philosophy. It is all, however, that the world could safely receive at the time. During the middle and latter part of the twentieth century the next messenger appointed by the “Great White Brotherhood” will continue the Word by a further revelation (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

Hall now discusses the purpose of the Mystery Schools and lists several adepts of notability and parentage:

What is the actual purpose of the Mystery Schools?

Ans. They are centers established to make possible the study of Eternal Truth. Their existence remains unknown to the masses, and in this way they protect themselves from the attacks and ridicule of the ignorant. Their fine hand, however, is behind practically every ethical advancement of the age. Sir Francis Bacon, the remodeler of British law, was a member of one of these Mystery Schools, as was William Shakespeare, the world’s greatest dramatist. Plato was an initiate; so was Aristotle. Pythagoras established a School of the Mysteries at Crotona. Appolonius of Tyana, sometimes called the Antichrist, was a high Adept, having been initiated in the Great Pyramid. Both Paracelsus and Roger Bacon were members of the Order of the Illuminati, represented the Mystery Schools in the world. Father C. RC., initiated in Arabia in the mythological city of Damcar by Arabian Adepts, was the spirit behind the Order of the Rose Cross in Germany and later in the Masonic Order. These Mystery Schools are established for the redemption of the race, which being too ignorant to know its own needs is first guided through its childhood by the gods and then instructed by the Adepts so that it may learn to take care of itself (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

We read that it is through the disciples that this hidden knowledge is shared; but there are also rules involved: 

How do the Masters present their knowledge to the world?

Ans. Through their disciples. As the Master Jesus taught His disciples in private what they should say to the multitudes, so the Great Ones promulgate their philosophies through their Chelas and pupils. This system is more efficient than the Masters appearing themselves, although they do come into the world sometimes. The disciple still has much of the world he is leaving behind in his nature, therefore can more easily mix with the world, thus attaining the desired end though always remaining as inconspicuous as possible. Realizing that each man must choose for himself, the Chela never states the source of his information. He merely sows the seed and leaves it to the one addressed to tenderly nurture the plant and finally gather in the harvest according to his own light (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

Hall now answers the question why we haven’t ever seen the Great Ones, yet we know they are amongst us everyday – they are among the least and simplest:

Why do we never see these Great Ones in the world?

Ans. They are in the world about us every day, but we do not recognize them. We look for shining figures with golden halos. But great souls are not like that. They are the simplest among the simple, the least among the least. They have learned what Jesus meant when he said, “He that would be greatest among you, let him be the servant of all.” The true Initiate, realizing that he will never be understood by the mass of humanity, never reveals himself except to his own students who know and love him (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

Think about it for a moment; how can you spot an Immortal member of the Great White Brotherhood, what characteristics does he possess? Well, here it is in simple language. In short, they will never reveal that they are, but they will clearly demonstrate that they know the rules that guide them:  

How may we know a great Initiate and tell a true Adept from a false?

Ans. There is an old saying, “By their works shall ye know them.” This applies to occult things as to any other line of endeavor. Within the last fifty years the matter of Adepts and Masters has been badly overdone. The country has been flooded with Swamis, Yogis, Mahatmas, Adepts, Masters and Initiates. It is impossible that even one percent of those who make this claim could be genuine, for Nature works slowlygreat minds are not educated en masse. We may say that an Adept or an Initiate cannot be recognized by any who is not instructed on the same subject. The Masters are known to each other, but to no one else as such. We may suspect a person who has unusual powers and is consecrating them to the service of humanity of being one of the Brethren or their Chela. But this will never be substantiated by their own admission. NO ADEPT OR INITIATE WILL STATE THAT HE IS SUCH EXCEPT TO HIS OWN CHELAS, AND THESE HE SWEARS TO SECRECY. ANYONE WHO ADMITS OR DECLARES PUBLICLY OR BRAGS OF THE FACT THAT HE IS AN ACCEPTED MEMBER OR HAS BEEN INITIATED INTO ANY TRUE OCCULT ORGANIZATION IS NO OTHER THAN AN EGOTIST AND A LIAR. A Chela or disciple may state, when ordered to do so by his Master, that he is representing the Adept or is speaking for him, but he must always admit and make plain that he himself is merely a humble disciple obeying the orders of a greater mind. When you see a person charitable to all, sincere with all, who labors daily for all, humble and contrite in all things, you may ask, “Is he a Great One?” But you will never be able to know until you have become as he is. Then the bond of service reveals to each those who are laboring for a common end (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

If one wants to attain such a position, what might his duties be? Most of it is common sense, believe it or not; but in a world of personal wants and desires, it maybe too difficult for most people to understand. In short, one must defend and follow one’s Master.  And if this simplest thing is not adhered to, the gifts attained will be lost:

What is the duty of a Chela to his Master?

Ans. In answering this I will quote the words of H. P. B. herself, who is in turn quoting from one of her Masters: “As the limbs defend the head and the heart of the body they belong to, so have the disciples to defend the head and the heart of the Body they belong to from injury.” The duty of the disciple is to fulfill the orders of the Master, to uphold his hand, to defend him, to preserve his integrity, and to represent him as honestly as he can by being himself an example of integrity among men. The Master assumes the position of father and mother to his disciples. They are his children, consequently are brothers to each other. As their parents have given them birth into the physical world and instructed them in their conduct in the substantial spheres, so their spiritual Master has given them birth into the spiritual worlds and is educating them concerning their behavior therein. Treachery to him and lack of consideration for his desires is the greatest sin in occultism. In things of the spirit, ingratitude is the first of the cardinal sins. This is punished by total loss of those gifts which the spirit has hoped to acquire (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

We now know about these Immortals; but by what power and by what authority do they rule by and with? In essence, the universe is ruled by intelligence, love and law; lets let Hall explain further:

By what is the universe ruled?

Ans. Occultists teach that the universe is governed by intelligence, love, and law; and the greatest of these is law. Love and intelligence serve law, ornamenting it and beautifying it; and law serves all things impartially. Millions of intelligences make manifest the intricacies of natural law. All things flourish when they abide in law. All things perish when they disregard law or seek to break its eternal power (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

Hall now discusses the natural laws that all Immortals of the Great White Brotherhood must abide by; of particular interest to your author, please take notice to Vibration and Compensation. Vibration is a necessary component to understand, in that everything in nature is moving (Claustrum Oil included); and Compensation is important, only because most people seeking an Immortal state think they can have their cake and eat it to, i.e. one’s actions are rewarded by one’s intent, goals, aspirations, etc. Measurement of all behavior is weighed and accounted for according to nature’s laws, not an individual’s desires:  

Name the fundamental natural laws. 

Ans. The most fundamental natural laws are: 

Evolutionall things grow and unfold.
Cause and Effectevery effect is measured by its cause.
Reincarnationlife returns to form again and again in the process of unfoldment.
Vibrationeverything in Nature is moving.
Polarityall things manifest through positive and negative poles.
Equilibriumperfection is the state of balance with its victory over the opposites.
Compensationaction is rewarded by its own reactions.
Periodicityfor every period of activity there must follow a period of inactivity. (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

This next lesson is of particular importance to your author, only because I have written extensively about the Claustrum Oil and its transference down and up the spinal cord

What does the wand of the magician symbolize?

Ans. It is the spinal cord surmounted by the brain. The brain is the vehicle of the mind, and gives to those who use it control over the invisible forces of Nature because the mind of the magician has learned to know and obey the laws which govern all forces in Nature (Manly P. Hall, Special Class in Secret Doctrine in Appreciation of H.P.B. (Madame Blavatsky), Manuscript Series No. 36).

So there you have it; as so many esoterics have discussed, there is a group of men called the Great White Brotherhood, and other competing Immortals, all working toward the singular aim of guiding humanity into a better world. This view is further supported by the following quote by Guy Warren Ballard, the man who met and was instructed by St. Germain:

This series of books is dedicated in deepest, Eternal Love and Gratitude to our Beloved Master, Saint Germain, the Great White Brotherhood, the Brotherhood of the Royal Teton, the Brotherhood of Mount Shasta, and those other Ascended Masters whose loving help has been direct and without limit (Guy Warren Ballard/Godfre Ray King, Unveiled Mysteries, 1934, p. vii).

The Benefits of Sacred Seminal Retention: An Immortal Lesson


As mentioned in my two previous posts on the topic of the Claustrum oil or the sacred secretion, Santa Claus and Christ-Mass Re-Explained: An Immortal Lesson, and Claustrum Oil: An Immortal Lesson, is a part of the process of regeneration, i.e. Immortality. Within those posts it mentioned the importance of saving this vital and sacred oil; and to waist it, meant death (Christ’s death). We know from research that this vital Claustrum oil (from within the brain) is found in the seminal fluid (sperm-semen) of men; so saving it is a necessary process for it to rise back up the spinal cord into the brain (Christ’s resurrection), from which it came. 

Nevertheless, like many things in life, making the suggestion to a man to save his Sacred Semen is an almost impossible task. This is especially true today, only because society teaches that masturbation and sexual intercourse, with the release of Semen, is actually healthy and necessary for good health. When in fact, this is simply not the truth. Like many things, we have been lied to in order to justify abnormal behavior. Up is down and down is up is the mantra today. 

Just think about it for a moment. Our past is riddled with numerous examples of groups and people that promoted abstinence; like that of the Catholic Church and its priesthood, various religions, athletes and coaches before competition, and even scholars and sages. Why did all these various groups of people promote non-sexual activity? Simply stated, because there are certain benefits and rewards for holding this Sacred Secretion; something seldom even mentioned at all to the general population.  As though this is some type of secret; for surely it is. 

Now, no one is suggesting that a man should never have sexual intercourse; absolutely not. Rather, what is suggested is to control this sexual energy for a greater purpose – to revitalize the body; thereby regenerating the human body into a state of Immortality. Keep in mind, though, this is not the only thing necessary for body regeneration, as has been mentioned in many of my previous posts on this blog. I will not go into specifics here, but I will state that the controlling of the Sacred Semen is necessary to this end. Therefore, sexual activity is actually encouraged, but the releasing of the Sacred Fluid is not. Which brings us to the point of this blog posting.     

This topic is probably new to most readers of this blog posting; and surely, one is more than likely dismissive of any such idea. I hear it all the time, “It will never happen in my lifetime” or “You are crazy for even suggesting such a thing.” It is obvious from such comments that those people who harbor such views have become conditioned to seek bodily pleasure first and foremost; and to be honest, I too use to feel this way. Yet now, I know the truth and am seeking a greater reward than immediate sexual satisfaction. This does not just stop with sexual pleasures, it also covers the topics of gluttony, fame, financial gain, etc. To learn more, please read my blog posting Mortal Obstacles to Immortality and the Seven Deadly Sins, which covers, lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride specifically.

As mentioned previously, our culture has been lied to for centuries; that for whatever reasons the ancients and their behaviors were incorrect; that we are smarter today, because of technological advancements. Nevertheless, many scholars still believe differently. Indeed, many modern wonders exist today, but why must we throw out the baby with the bathwater when it comes to our past. We can surely incorporate the best of both worlds – the old and the new.

Interestingly, it takes a great amount of bodily energy to create the Sacred Semen, and this may be, in part, why most men live shorter lives than most women today. However, it is also known that every Immortal over the age of 200 years is a man. Think about that for a moment. In short, it is common knowledge within Immortal circles that most women live longer than men; but when a man figures out Immortal knowledge and the mastery of his body, he is able to live longer than every woman. But this will only happen when he becomes the master (like a Master Mason) of his own body.

Let’s go one step further, have you ever wondered why regular Freemasonry is open only to men? Again, take a moment and ponder that question further. Has anyone ever really given us a valid reason to why men are only allowed into the Craft (Blue lodge, etc); and this will never change for this reason – the potential for true Immortality is only available to men, but only when men are taught to act differently and separately then women. It is a well known fact within the Craft that worldly men act differently around worldly women, and for this reason as well, must be kept separate.

Back to my point – the true purpose of the Sacred Semen is to create life. One can use it to create a child or to extend one’s own life; any other purpose is simply wasteful. In short, when the Sacred Semen is released, it takes a part of each man with it. As such, it is for this reason as well that the ancient sages held that the dispensing of this bodily fluid would shorten a lifespan, and accelerate the aging process.

Nevertheless, by retaining the fluid, the opposite would result. In fact, many men refer to the changes within themselves as some sort of SUPERPOWER. Yes, you read that correctly, by holding this fluid, a man gains SUPERPOWERS. In fact, men gain more confidence, increased motivation, assertiveness and increased energy, which is needed for a successful life. Here is a list of benefits a man receives from preserving the Sacred Semen:

  • More energy
  • Less depressed
  • More confidence
  • Happier
  • Less anxiety
  • Increased social skills
  • Highly motivated to succeed
  • Highly motivated to do more
  • Highly motivated to approach real women
  • Increased fat loss
  • Increased muscle growth
  • Improved workouts
  • Improved sporting performance
  • Deeper voice
  • Improved skin
  • Thicker hair
  • Increased hair growth (Facial, body and hair)
  • Less sleep required
  • Brighter eyes
  • Clearer skin
  • Improved body language
  • More alpha male behaviors
  • Increased attention from women
  • More respect from men
  • Improved memory
  • Removal of brain fog
  • Smarter
  • A cure to hair loss
  • Better sex
  • Thicker/longer penis
  • Stronger
  • Aloof attitude
  • High sex drive
  • Controlled aggression
  • Feelings of power
  • Improved relationships
  • Improved immunity
  • Increased stamina

More specifically, the Sacred Semen is full of proteins, nutrients, minerals and even enzymes that are key to a person’s health, immunity and appearance. After around two weeks of retention, the body begins to reabsorb the vital substance for its own maintenance and improvement. Better skin and brighter eyes, thicker hair and bigger muscles, more facial hair and less hair loss, and a more improved smarter you will be the result.

The human body has instinctively built within itself an overwhelming desire to reproduce and pass on its genetics. Nevertheless, when satisfying oneself by releasing his Sacred Semen, the body and brain then believes that it’s doing well in life. When a man gives up this release, his brain begins to panic, but in a matter of only a few weeks, extra benefits soon arrive. The body immediately decides to improve itself, only because its now panicking over something lost. You see, the brain is pre-programmed to pass on the body’s genetics, and when it realizes everything has changed, it goes into overdrive or hyper-drive. This includes making one look younger in order to find a mate for procreation; but it does not stop there. A man’s testosterone and masculinity immediately arises; thereby improving his physique, health, and of course his pheromones are also enhanced. All of which is intended to increase longevity. Essentially, by holding back his Sacred Secretion, man is merely tapping into what nature intended; i.e. Immortality.

So Mote It Be!
