Within my search for the facts, I started studying the major religions of the planet, both modern and ancient. What I started to get was that there is a basic truth underlying each one of these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I found that there is an esoteric and an exoteric meaning to all or any religious paths. Esoteric is derived 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 of the 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 brand new dispensation to humanity’s understanding of a loving father, rather than vengeful deity.
Exoteric Originates 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, personal faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a brand new understanding of the conflicting messages that organized religion had presented within the centuries. I begun to note that there were other more meaningful connotations to the written traditions of most major religions. A truth that gave all of us ways to relate to the cosmic creator with.
Before the final century, the ancient wisdom teachings were only offered 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 got a bad rap. They got labels such as witchcraft and “of the devil “.Anything that did not adhere to the organization distinct the Catholic Church was feared, hated, and ultimately killed. If it wasn’t in the Bible, it was not true. The problem was The Bible itself was so manipulated that it lost much of the truths that the Master Jesus, while the Christ, had come to provide every one of humanity.
A lie told one thousand times is believed more than the truth told once. Modern Mystery School
Nevertheless the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings give a meaning and a purpose your they explain a far more cosmic understanding of the great energy we call God which contain references to the ancestors “from the stars” which makes sense of the mythology of most religions. And they give us hope for future years, that there surely is indeed a plan and a purpose that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how exactly everytime humanity is ready, a good one or avatar, comes to 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 that are ready for more of The Truth as you Age shifts into another Age. Today we’re shifting from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.
A Personal Relationship with The Cosmos
We’re in a thrilling period of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are coming back out in to the open, available to all or any 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 aspect 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 an increased understanding of the wisdom that heals duality. Sophia doesn’t threaten. she just withdraws whenever we do not accept her. Inner knowing, which is her way, is subtle and fragile, but has such power that when she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
Once the student is ready, the teacher appears…
