Within my pursuit of the reality, I started studying the major religions of the entire world, both modern and ancient. What I started to get was that there clearly was a simple truth underlying every one of these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I found 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 which is hidden, unseen, secret, inner – or out-of-sight. In the Bible – which is reality a book with this hidden wisdom, the Master Jesus spoke of mysteries reserved for disciples which he did not provide public. His public teachings, the parables, were meant to create a new dispensation to humanity’s understanding of a loving father, rather than a vengeful deity.
Exoteric Arises from the Greek root exo meaning outside. Popular religious teachings which are made 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 was the esoteric meanings behind my own personal faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a new understanding of the conflicting messages that organized religion had presented within the centuries. I begun to observe that there were other more meaningful connotations to the written traditions of most major religions. A truth that gave us all a way to relate solely to the cosmic creator with.
Before the past century, the ancient wisdom teachings were only available 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 were given a poor rap. They were given labels such as witchcraft and “of the devil “.Whatever did not stick to the business type of the Catholic Church was feared, hated, and ultimately killed. If it wasn’t in the Bible, it wasn’t true. The situation was The Bible itself was so manipulated that it lost much of the truths that the Master Jesus, since the Christ, had come to give all humanity. Modern Mystery School
A lie told one thousand times is believed more compared to truth told once.
However the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings give a meaning and an objective your they explain a more cosmic understanding of the great energy we call God which contain references to the ancestors “from the stars” that produces sense of the mythology of most religions. And they give us hope for the future, that there is indeed a plan and an objective that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how precisely every time humanity is ready, a great one or avatar, concerns the planet to give us another step on the ladder towards union with cosmic creator. These great teachers begin to look whenever a critical mass has been reached that are ready for more of The Truth as one Age shifts into the following Age. Today we’re shifting from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.
A Personal Relationship with The Cosmos
We are in a fantastic period of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are finding its way back out into the open, available to any or all who are questing for the truth. One such school was my own personal alma mater, Sancta Sophia Seminary in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Santa Sophia means “holy wisdom “.Energetically, it is anchored in Christo/Sophia, Yin/Yang, a balanced facet of the divine, integrating the divine masculine which is out-pictured throughout the Piscean age, with the incoming divine feminine of the Aquarian age.
Sophia leads us to a greater understanding of the wisdom that heals duality. Sophia does not threaten. she just withdraws whenever we don’t accept her. Inner knowing, which 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…
