As a bee seeks nectar from all kinds of flowers,
When the balanced bond between Goddess and God was severed by men who feared her mystical power and influence, the unbalanced world of male hysteria came into being and continues to this day as we pummel villages to ruin. And so for thousands of years, God has been the masculine and singular Supreme Being while Goddess is most often used in reference to a deity of folklore. The real tragedy of this masculine reference goes beyond the chauvinistic and into the irreverent, committing a double homicide with the exoteric Judeo-Christian, guilty as charged.
To read the ancient scriptures is to look inside the un-fettered mystical minds that lived close to the mystery of mysteries, the door of all essence, behind which was an Eternal Tao that could not be known with the conceptual mind. But as the Mother of the World and all things, it could be known. I refer to the Eternal Tao as the Absolute Absence, absent of intellectual concepts. I refer to the Mother aspect of the Eternal Tao as God(dess). The absolute Absence isn’t to be “named”; it’s to be experienced. God(dess) can be both named and experienced.
* Tao Teh Ching, Lao Tzu. Translated by John C.H. Wu
Since 1997 I have been a contemplative eremite, dancing my joy with the Absolute Absence on a high desert plateau in the wilderness of northwestern Arizona. I give thanks continuously.
Sometimes when we want to jump into the now, we have to stop. We have to go back and find the starting point of the now, and every now has its starting point.
Throughout my adult life I would answer my ancient hermit calling every ten years or so. I’d take a sabbatical into solitude where I’d remain for as long as was financially feasible. In 1997 the calling was finally answered with the commitment of continuance; I was forty-seven years old. I sold everything that I thought not essential and pulled up the twenty-eight year old stake of living in Santa Cruz California on the Monterey Bay. I traded seagulls and the ocean for ravens and the high desert sky, along with people and the city for the life of a recluse in the wilderness.
Being a minimal consumer enables me to be less involved with the worldly worlds cleverly marketed conveniences that I don’t find the least bit convenient. Things demand attention and attention demands time. The more things you have the less time you have. Less things results in less distraction and more time to engage in spiritual contemplation, which brings peace and a fullness in being. Now I haven’t renounced worldly concerns and pleasures because I think they’re evil, I’m just no longer interested in them. I’ve simply found simple more interesting. I’m also not asocial, I enjoy people very much, and because my social interactions are infrequent, when they do occur, it’s a celebration.
In the awakened mind of primordial original intent, the intellect and intuition worked in mutual dependence, creating a symbiotic modality for optimum being. In the modern mind, intuition has been eclipsed by a discursive mind that has digressed to a desultory thought process, which has difficulty staying focused on the simplest of tasks. Productive mystical contemplation requires a single pointed focus that’s not easily achieved with such a mind and amidst the distractions of the worldly world, the difficulties are compounded.
Civilization has once again lost its appreciation for and the ability to know, that which matters and that which doesn’t. It has become a complication that breeds the madness of greed and anger. Its inhabitants have become nonsensical because they’re confused and their perceptions are distorted. They’ve sacrificed clarity or the myth of more. Our human mind can be a dangerous gift, or is it a divine test that few take and fewer pass? For the most part, people are doing the best they can with what they were given, and the given only changed through divine intervention.
We live in the middle of wonderment and are an integral part of the mystery of mysteries and it all occurs in the tiniest house of time, where I shall wander unfettered, aimlessly following the empty continuum of intuitive mind.
The Church of the Priory
The Church of the Priory was created to honor the true beginnings of the religious experience. The FIRST TIME of Osiris. It is my belief that approximately 10,500 years ago there was a group of advanced people skilled in the sciences and geometry that came to Egypt to train the inhabitants. The first generation of an educated people who understood the meaning of the true god, the Creator of the Universe.
How did I arrive at this conclusion? According to researchers the great pyramids were a copy of the stars of the constellation Orion. Why Orion? The so-called air shafts located inside the Great Pyramid points directly toward the stars of the Orion belt. Computer analysis indicates that the date of the position of Orion that correlates most closely to the pyramid’s layout is 10,500 BC. Ironically, this date is also the date that the ancient Ammonites considered very important. The Ammonites are a community who today still practice the ancient Egyptian religion. According to Ammonite tradition it asserts that the first appearance of Osiris occurred in 10,500 BC. This date is when the Nile-dwellers first came into contact with a more ancient and advanced civilization who accelerated their culture and sense of spirituality, laying down the fundamentals of Egyptian civilization.
Where did these people who taught the Nile-dwellers come from? I believe the legend of Atlantis is where these advanced people came from. Atlantis according to legend is an advanced society with a strong social structure which fostered schooling, group interaction to a common goal, free thinking, commerce, and an understanding of the stars. From that understanding the basis of geometry, the principle of god, and the creator of the universe was discovered. I believe this group came from the northern hemisphere where the study of the stars was enhanced by prolonged darkness for half the year. It is likely that the people of Atlantis’s were what we consider Nordic today.
Where was Atlantis located? The island referenced in legend would need to be of immense proportions, rich in materials required to sustain an advanced culture. I believe that island exists today known as Greenland. A very old ancient map The Piri Re’is Map reveals advanced geographic knowledge in prehistory. Cartographers of the 1930’s were amazed by the detail of the new world map which was not according to history discovered yet. It was extremely accurate in detail. But the most amazing thing was it had been drawn according to azimuthally equidistant projection. The map could only have been created by aerial photography. The date of when the map was used is 1519 and was created based on the map of Columbus and maps dating from Alexander the Great. The HADJI Ahmed Map is dated in 1559. This map is extremely accurate but actually shows there was no Bering Straight, just a land mass connecting Alaska and Asia. This would be correct if it was over 10,000 years old. Zeno’s map dated to the 1300’s showed Greenland to be ice free, mountains in the interior, and rivers flowing to the sea, where in many cases glaciers are found today.
Why Greenland for Atlantis? I believe Greenland would have provided the night sky for study of the stars, wood for their sea going boats, minerals, fresh water, meat, seafood, and produce. It would also provide a location from which to travel east to northern Europe and west to the Americas. It would also explain the Nordic people’s ancient knowledge of Greenland and the Americas. They felt that their ancestors were from the west sea.
What was the most remarkable thing about the Atlantian Nordic peoples? While their science was remarkably advanced, they firmly believed in sharing their science with other cultures. Proof of these peoples can be found in Egyptian and Sumerian cultures. They were known as a “tall,” “god-like” people who taught these cultures the sciences and geometry. They were known as the “watchers” or “angels.” Where did these people come from at this time? In one Sumerian’s comments about his travel to the land of the “watchers” he commented on the location of the Sun, Moon, and Venus at certain times of the year. By calculating the location from his descriptions, it was determined to be the British islands. To be more specific about the location he visited, New Grange, Ireland. This location is an ancient site that was used by the “watchers” to determine the time of the year and its impact on their culture.
Similar to later cultures knowledge or gnosis was the foundation of the Nordic “watchers.” This knowledge was passed on by ritualistic means to initiates. Most likely the ritualistic training was limited to the initiates because of the amount of information that needed to be understood and mastered. Secrecy was necessary to protect the gnosis from groups that wanted to invade or destroy existing societies. Since knowledge is power, societies that protect their knowledge remain strong. Societies that do not protect their knowledge or gnosis usually fall from power. The “watchers” clearly understood this thus the reason for secrecy.
The “watchers” realized that their science would lead to an understanding of movement (time) and its impact on life. They founded geometry based on the stars which would lead to an understanding that someone of great intelligence created the precision of the movement of the skies. This led to the creator of the universe concept, which led to the existence of god. In essence the understanding of science eventually created the understanding of god. Today there is a popular belief that science is attempting to disprove god. I find this not to be true. In my research I found that history has shown that in every instance the great thinkers in history from the Egyptians to the masons, the Gnostic people, always associated knowledge and god. What they generally didn’t agree with was the invention of additional gods. The duality of god was never accepted as original. The societies that used more than one god seemed to be based on powerful people who wanted to control their subjects or for meeting a specific agenda to mislead.
What has been the impact on society by the understanding of “movement?” By studying the sky researchers (“watchers”) determined in advance when the time would arrive for planting crops as well as when to have ritualistic sex in order to time a child’s birth for the best chance of survival. How was the movement of the sky reproduced on earth? The movement of the sky was reproduced by the swinging of a pendulum. The pendulum led to a unit of measurement then referred to as the megalithic yard. The megalithic yard is today known as the metric system. The finite distance of the megalithic yard led to the rod. The rod was a fixed entity so that all things could be measured. The angle of the stars led to geometry as measured by the rod. Geometry then led to advanced building techniques, using the rod as a measuring tool. This geometry helped to build the pyramids in Egypt.
It was in Egypt that we have the first documentation of a society elite being initiated into the group of “watchers.” When this group completed their studies they were considered priests. Since the pharaoh was the leader of the priests he was considered a pharaoh/god. This was man’s first modification of the original Gnostic people. Ironically the pharaoh did not consider himself a god but the conduit to god. He always maintained the true secrets of the “watchers” and god.
It was at this time that the proto Jews were in-charge of Egypt. Known as the Hykos this group ruled the North and had the conquered pharaoh rule the south for them. It was the king of the north who wanted to know the secrets of the initiates because he knew that it was only when you truly followed the secret procedures and rituals were you considered the true king of Egypt. So he sent three men, one of whom was a relative of Moses, to the south to retrieve the information from the high priest. There were only two people who knew the secrets, the high priest, and the Pharaoh. The high priest refused to give the three men the initiate secret information even under the threat of death and thus he was killed. The three men then waited to ambush the pharaoh and obtain the information based on the threat of his death. But to their surprise the pharaoh refused to divulge the information. One of the members struck a blow and he refused to give up the information. Then another blow and he still refused. Finally a fatal blow was struck to his head and he died. In the history of Egypt this pharaoh is the only one known to have died violently by three blows to the head. When the Hykos king discovered that both men had been killed he went into a rage since he knew the secret of becoming a true pharaoh by the secret initiation was lost forever.
The result of the murder of the pharaoh was war and the expulsion of the Hykos from Egypt. It was the assassinated pharaoh’s brother who led a revolution against the Hykos and eventually threw them out of Egypt after 200 years. One of the Hykos general’s name was Moses. One of the assassins was a relative of Moses.
Moses was well aware of the history of the “watchers,” their initiates and science since he was in the elite circles of the Hykos king. He knew full well that for his people to survive he must leave Egypt. The Pharaoh of Egypt agreed an allowed Moses and his people to leave. This time was the beginning of the Jews as a people and the proto Jews were fading into history.
Moses was a believer in one god and he felt his people must follow that principle. It was at this point when the proto Jews began a move toward a nation of Jews. Up until this time the proto Jews worshipped idols and not Moses’ one god adopted from the Egyptians. Since Moses was aware of the real god of the “watchers,” he wrote a series of commandments for the Jewish people to live by which reflected the “watchers” creator of the universe, education, morals, teaching others, and compassion for fellow man. The god of the “watchers” was now the god of the Jews.
Moses then decided that the Jews needed a country/land of their own. Previously being an army general in the Hykos Egyptian Army he organized his people into a fighting force and attacked the lands of the indigenous peoples of what is now Israel. To justify his actions he explained to his people that god chose this land for them and that god considered them the chosen ones. The conquest was ruthless. Every man, woman, and child were killed.
How did the Jews change from a sun worship to moon worship? When the Babylonians conquered Israel/Judah, they transferred the elite class to Babylon to prevent an uprising. During this time the worship of the Egyptian Sun god turned to the worship of the Babylon Moon god. When the captured Jews were allowed to return to their lands, along with their captured treasure, it included a modified Moon god worship. This is the area of disagreement that Jesus and the Essenes had with the ruling priests of the Jews.
When Solomon was the leader of the Jews, he kept a secret. While his people were worshipping one way, Solomon was worshipping according to the original Egyptian god, along with all the hidden rituals for membership. Far below Solomon’s temple secret meetings were taking place similar to today’s Masonic lodges. Only a few were privy to the activities. One was the King of what is now know as Lebanon. The activities for worship mirror the masons, formerly the Knights Templar. I believe that The Essenes were considered a part of this group and Jesus was an Essene.
Since the Essenes were an elite people with the knowledge of the “watchers.” They also worshipped the sun and considered other non-Essenes as non-Jews since they worshipped the moon. It was this group that Jesus and his brother belonged after being baptized by John the Baptist. The Essenes created the original Christian Church. Not the church of Jesus but of Christ.
James the brother of Jesus was known as James the Just the leader of the Christian Church. Jesus was the Christos in charge of the army. Jesus’ goal was to overthrow the Roman army by force and free the holy land so that the Jews would once again have a nation. His job was to complete the resurrection of the original Jewish state. This resurrection was misinterpreted by the Catholic Church as his resurrection. Jesus believed that he was a direct descendent of King David, the first king of the Jews and that he should be the rightful king of the Jews since he was pure.
In the Catholic Church, Jesus was considered a son of god with all the privileges associated with what that meant. Jesus was far from being a son of god. One time he entered the holy city and began destroying the money exchanger’s booths where they were conducting business. He felt it was against god for them to be on temple grounds performing an unholy activity. He also told the ruling priests that they were not following the strict Jewish code as established originally by Moses. His arrogance to the Jewish priests and open contempt for the Roman occupation of Israel led to his demise. When the Roman magistrate put out a warrant for Jesus’ arrest the description was of a small man with was slightly deformed hunch in his back, which would have made it easy for the Roman legion to correctly identify him. It seems that Jesus was not a leader of men. Actually he was just the opposite. He estranged his fellow Jewish men.
When the Jewish public had a choice to make between saving Jesus or the other man for their crimes, the Jews chose to let Jesus die for several reasons. First he had destroyed the money changers booths and chastised the temple priests and second he wanted to overthrow the Roman administration, which the leaders of the Jewish nation did not intend on doing. Jesus was tortured and killed. The death sentence was carried out by crucifixion. The Roman’s used the crucifixion only when there was an extreme reason. Jesus had given them a reason to make a point. If you went against Roman rule and would not worship Rome’s gods in addition to your own, you would be dealt with in the most severe way. With all the activities that took place it is amazing that Jesus was only in the public eye for one year. Was Jesus a success or failure? You would have to concede that he failed to rally his fellow Jews to fight the Romans and he failed to overthrow of the priestly class and return to the original god.
After the death of Jesus what happened to his brother James the Just, leader of the Essene Christian Church? James was thrown off the balcony of the Temple of Solomon when he attempted to enter Solomon’s temple since the priestly class considered his views of worship wrong. James died for his views. Ironic that James’ views were precisely the views of Solomon. Evidently the temple priests did not want competition or for that matter a different opinion that questioned their leadership.
What happened to the man who baptized Jesus, John the Baptist? He was beheaded. John the Baptist was considered by the Essenes and James the Just to be the originator of the Christian Church. By cutting off his head it was considered a symbolic move of removing the head of the church. The idea being that when the leader of the church dies then the church dies with him. The killings of neither James nor John changed the Essenes or the Christian Church for the essential point was the original god’s worship not the men who ran the church.
About thirty years after the death of Jesus his revolt against the Romans took place. Jesus’ goal of restoring the original doctrine of Moses and the Jewish nation failed terribly. Perhaps the most tragic outcome of the war with Rome was the total destruction of Solomon’s temple. While the temple has never been rebuilt at its original location, there was one hidden secret. The place where Solomon conducted his secret rituals, initiated his priests, where the Ark of the Covenant, and the treasures of the Jewish nation were stored was still intact. The Romans never found the treasures because of the “watchers” rules of holding secrets among the elite class. No one knew of the hidden levels.
Did the original Christian Church bring down the mighty Roman Empire? The answer is yes. The fall of the Roman Empire started long before Rome realized what was happening. While much of the Roman Empire’s demise is credited to the invading Teutonic armies, it was the movement of the Christian church that finally determined its fate. The Christian church gave a message that rang true with not only the out casts of society but also the Roman army. Previously, the Roman Army worshipped Mithraism. This religion was actually similar to Christianity, the belief in one god, comradeship, and tolerance. The Christians were building a powerful following. It was just a matter of time until a dramatic change would occur.
So how did the original Christian Church change to the Catholic Church? The Roman’s were if anything a practical group of people with a determination to control the masses for the benefit of a select few. When the Eastern Roman Emperor Constantine needed a way to control the masses he turned to Christianity. Constantine was a typical pagan Roman and was not a believer in Christianity or for that matter one god. But he needed something to hold his empire together. So Constantine called all the Christian leaders together in Nicea, located in what is now known as Turkey in 325 A.D., which was officially called the Council of Nicea. Until this time most Christians did not believe that Jesus was the son of god. They felt he was a man who was the leader of a church that believed in god. The Arians from Alexandria felt this way. The Catholic Church out of Rome considered Jesus the son of god. Not unusual for a Roman to think this way since all the Caesars were considered gods. In a room of religious leaders, the Roman Emperor Constantine, of pagan beliefs, made his decision to make Jesus a god in spite of overwhelming proof that he was not a god. To put Constantine’s decision of making Jesus a god into perspective, it is much easier to control a group if a violation of the rules could mean when you die you will to go to hell forever. And since Constantine was The Caesar of Rome, the city he wanted to control, making Jesus a god fit perfectly into Constantine’s agenda for population control.
What happens next is probably one of the greatest tragedies the world has ever seen. The Catholic Church is based on the Roman structure of government. Caesar became the pope; the senate became the Cardinals and the plebians the priestly class. Once again the Romans were in-charge. If you did not follow the Roman’s rules (Catholic Church’s official doctrine) you were severally disciplined. Pagans were ruthlessly punished, all none Christian worship was banned, and those who did not convert were killed. The Arians out of Alexandria were now considered heretics and were punished by death. Many of those who were Arians went underground in order to survive. Again meetings were kept secret in order to protect the original “watchers” views. It seems like nothing had changed between the Roman Empire and the Catholic Roman Empire. Rome is still Rome.
For the next 1,000 years the Catholic Church tortured and killed anyone who disagreed with Church doctrine even though many times the truth was being told. Burning at the stake in public was a common course of action that controlled dissenters by showing them what would happen if you deviated from Church doctrine. Even the Knights Templar, the Churches own military group created to defend Christians in the Holy Land were destroyed by the Church when they didn’t need them any longer. With the ruthlessness of the Catholic Church and the punishment given out for offences, you could say that the Roman Empire never ceased to exist; it simply changed its dress code from the purple and red of Caesar to the white of the papal pope. Up until recent times the method of leadership for the Catholic Church was still the same as it was for Roman and Caesar. Either you follow the rules or you will die.
During this time what happened to the original believers of one god? The beliefs of the “watchers” that there was one creator of the universe, one god? They were still functioning in secret groups. Sometimes even within the Catholic Church itself. One group is known as the masons, descendants of the Knights Templar. After the dissolution of the military Knights Templar by the Pope of the Catholic Church with the burning at the stake of its leader, they went underground with the purpose of continuing the original Christian Church and destroying the fake church that falsely identified Jesus as a god. This battle has been raged since the 1300’s.
So who won the battle between the Catholic Church and the Knights Templar (now known as the masons)? With the creation of the United States of America the separation of Church and State became constitutional law. No longer can the Church run your life unless you chose to let it. I thank the masons for this wise decision. It allows all of us the opportunity to make the decision which is right for each of us individually. And why did the masons separate the Church from government? They had extensive experience with what happens when a Church has absolute power. The Jewish priests, Catholic Church, and the Church of England were all at one time “in-charge” exclusively and all three tried to destroy original thinking concerning god.
Why did I create my Church and what is its doctrine? The Church of the Priory was founded to protect the original Christian Church and its founders the Nordic peoples known as the “watchers.” The basic principles of good; assisting people in need; providing education and training; allowing people who are of good heart to be free to conduct their lives in harmony and peace as they deem appropriate is a strong component of my ministry. To incorporate all what has been learned from the past and present it to the future. To understand and be tolerant of all people's religious beliefs as long as those beliefs do not impinge upon other's beliefs. To defend what is right and true. The Royal Knights of the Priory’s mission will be to serve and protect god’s people and his principles. To be leaders of Kind. To be leaders of Knowledge. To be leaders of Faith.
