In my quest for the reality, I started studying the major religions of the world, both modern and ancient. What I started to find was that there clearly was a fundamental truth underlying all these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I learned that there clearly was an esoteric and an exoteric meaning to any or all religious paths. Esoteric hails from the Greek word, eso meaning “within” – that that is hidden, unseen, secret, inner – or out-of-sight. In the Bible – that is reality a guide of this hidden wisdom, the Master Jesus spoke of mysteries reserved for disciples which he didn’t provide public. His public teachings, the parables, were meant to create a brand new dispensation to humanity’s comprehension of a loving father, rather than vengeful deity.
Exoteric Comes from the Greek root exo meaning outside. Popular religious teachings which are given openly and publicly. The Christian Church has traditionally emphasized the exoteric message of its faith, dogma, and doctrine while neglecting the mystery side of the Christian teachings.
It had been the esoteric meanings behind my own faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a brand new comprehension of the conflicting messages that organized religion had presented over the centuries. I started initially to note that there have been other more meaningful connotations to the written traditions of all major religions. A truth that gave people a way to relate genuinely to the cosmic creator with. Modern Mystery School
Before the last century, the ancient wisdom teachings were only open to initiates in mystery schools. These esoteric orders were gradually forced underground by the rise of the newly formed state religion dash Christianity. The old ways were finally stamped out throughout the reign of terror called the Inquisition, and the mystery schools received a bad rap. They received labels such as witchcraft and “of the devil “.Whatever didn’t abide by the business line of the Catholic Church was feared, hated, and ultimately killed. When it wasn’t in the Bible, it was not true. The issue was The Bible itself was so manipulated that it lost much of the truths that the Master Jesus, because the Christ, had come to provide every one of humanity.
A lie told one thousand times is believed more compared to the truth told once.
But the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings provide a meaning and a purpose your they explain a more cosmic comprehension of the fantastic energy we call God that contain references to your ancestors “from the stars” that produces sense of the mythology of all religions. And they give us hope for future years, that there’s indeed an idea and a purpose that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how exactly each time humanity is ready, a good one or avatar, involves the planet to provide us another step on the ladder towards union with cosmic creator. These great teachers begin to appear each time a critical mass has been reached which can be ready for more of The Truth as you Age shifts into another Age. Today we are shifting from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.
A Personal Relationship with The Cosmos
We are in a thrilling amount of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are coming back out to the open, available to any or all who are questing for the truth. One school was my own alma mater, Sancta Sophia Seminary in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Santa Sophia means “holy wisdom “.Energetically, it’s anchored in Christo/Sophia, Yin/Yang, a balanced facet of the divine, integrating the divine masculine that is out-pictured throughout the Piscean age, with the incoming divine feminine of the Aquarian age.
Sophia leads us to a greater comprehension of the wisdom that heals duality. Sophia does not threaten. she just withdraws once we do not accept her. Inner knowing, that is her way, is subtle and fragile, but has such power that after she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
Once the student is ready, the teacher appears…
