Decapitation by the Caliphate

The barbarity of Islam is really something. If beheadings WERE  the will of God, then I WOULD renounce my faith. Those who show no mercy will receive no mercy, those who show no compassion will be judged without compassion.

Electronic Membership Request, The EMR program

Many young men today are seeking, and they are of good moral character, and they do not know any masons personally. Connecticut Grand Lodge runs a program where men, having found the Grand Lodge web page can, by "knocking on the digital door", set in motion a system which may lead to his becoming a mason. Basically, the contact is filtered and directed through a series of administrators until within three emails, the Inquirer is invited to the lodge which is closest to his residence for an informal dinner before lodge. The district administrator has emailed him a personal note that he will be contacted by the lodge administrator, this  same email is cc'ed to that lodge administrator and to the district deputy, the letter strictly informs the Inquirer that it is very important the he respond to the lodge contact in a timely manner. The lodge visit is not random, it is somewhat choreographed by a set of brothers whose job it is to inform, engage and somewhat direct the visit. The lodge then proceeds as it sees fit with any continuing interface with the prospect. When successfully done, the lodge then has a pipeline whereby candidates are developed who have come both through the usual method and by the EMR system to the lodge, they get to know each other well at their various level of degree completion. They may have a public background check, they may have all initial fees for degrees paid up front, and they may or may not continue, or be found worthy, as we are all familiar. Done with speed and efficiency, this method can be a highly successful way for us to find the men who have a genuine  interest in freemasonry but who do not know any  freemasons themselves.

Connecticut Grand Lodge, Confusion in the Temple

I saw a teeshirt the other day in a window..... It said "What happens in Connecticut, stays in Connecticut.....but nothing really ever happens in Connecticut. "Well that has all changed for the moment. In the land of steady habits, here in Connecticut, we now have had a bit of excitement,  thanks largely to the complexities of the Grand Lodge life. This includes of course many social engagements, all over the country, with other  Grand Lodge and appendant body dignitaries. Regrettably, we now have a duly elected, a WMGME, who is suspended and under masonic investigation, which sadly has  been brought, at just the time when he was to ascend to the Oriental chair of Ct.'s Grand East. He declined resignation, he declined the charges, he would not be moved, can you blame him? How proud we have been, to work toward strengthening our fraternity,  as we all endeavor together in the quarry. The evolution, and change, we have seen within our society of friends and brothers. And yet, my brothers,  there was no solemn obsequious nodding and tsk-tsking at Grand lodge today. What sounded more like the English house of parliament, than our usual grand lodge proceeding ensued, not surprisingly. Voting to accept the  Grand Master's reports  seemed at times evenly split and with warnings levelled and returned, it went on. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity....not. Sometimes it just ain't so. I don't attempt to divine the intentions, confusions or veracity of the events which have brought us to this point, I do however feel obliged to let it be known that our masonic house, here in Ct, is for the moment now standing divided. This too shall pass.

The Explosion of Liberty, the Law of Squares and the Divine Proportion

Ten multiples, ten people united in purpose has the power of over 1000.1, 2, 4, 8, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024. This is the exponential law which is the binding path of squaring, bond by unified intent. Similar as it is to fibonacci's law of gnomic growth 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987. This is the binding path of organic proportioning which as Kepler found reaches for the divine proportion or Phi,  repeating the central pattern as it grows.  We see today, accomplished by way of the world wide web, which now enables not only information to be widely available but also the individuals ability to tesselate and tile themselves as living stone to the cause of liberty, to the governing principle which unifies common man in his desire for liberty.  In the Arab spring and in Ukraine, in Venezuala and in parts of Asia, is the throwing off of the recent tyrants and thieves. The awarenss that liberty in the form of democracy can survive in a system of government, when combined with capitalism. Ultimately as more people on the earth become aware of this, and then perceive that the fight for liberty is worth fighting and dying for, as Jefferson blithely noted, the organic squaring of that power occurs. Then they will organize by means of computerized social networking and stand together upon the shoulders of their countrymen until they are free of oppression. At the center is Liberty, fraternity, and Equality. The governing proportion, the central squaring, and the arc of humanity towards  freewill, upon a level of time. Of course the trickier bits of being free of overwhelming debt and obligation are then in play. Freedom today isn't about how much ground you own, its about unleashing the human potential.

Wanderers in Service to Humanity

Throughout history there has been a cadre of high raised souls who have chosen and received permission to incarnate into the earth at a particular time to assist mankind toward a particular direction. Of the Founding Fathers at least Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson were so-called Wanderers. These are subject to the same karmic and veiling laws, and still they come. There have been many such, great souls, as there is desire in the pleroma for a great success here on our little inclusion of a solar system. This according to the Law of One. The choice of the wanderer is complicated by the possibility that whatever state of evolution they are at in the spiritual realm is risked when in the body. The very real confusion that exists on the freewill plane can cause even the most dedicated soul to lose sight of original intent and end up mired in karma and lose during the incarnation or worse end up choosing the negative polarity and become captured by Belial

The Extreme Ice Survey documentary, James Balog

In this information age, we all have a tendency to only look for data that supports our underlying convictions and beliefs. That is not good scientific method, but it is a way for one to be presumptive of not putting ones head in the sand.  That the glaciers are melting is known, that the ice cores show historic CO2 content is understood, and that human impact is real is generally accepted.

The pace of change on the earth is the question, and the ebb and flow of natures ways is open to debate. James Balog's documentary "CHASING ICE" released in 2012 is a time lapse photographic journey into the great polar ice regions. If you have an open mind, and are more interested in fact than in a position, and if you enjoy great photos you will enjoy this 75 minute documentary available from Netflix.

Spiritual Law and Newtonian Correlaries

The spiritual world, undergirds the material world.  The pleroma as we know it is about energy and transformation in magnetized space. For spiritual work to occur here, dualistic opportunity must exist. Suffering must exist in order to be alleviated, to teach, ignorance must exist, to serve there must be need. This is the freewill Plan, catalyst in myriad choices  enable the acceleration of soul evolution. As above so below, Hermetic tradition holds that the material world is as the spiritual world, so spiritual law is the matrix upon which the laws of the material world are overlaid. For example...Newtons reciprocal change of energy....mass in motion requires equal and opposite force to bring to rest....has the correllary in karma and forgiveness. This is cause and effect, and forgiveness is the force which will stop that wheel of karma. Reincarnation, of the infinite soul, can refer to the concept of preservation of energy, being transformed not eliminated.  As the Royal Society sought to understand the Creator through the natural sciences,  As above, so below. The laws of spirit cannot be abrogated, like the laws of Physics. There will never be concrete proof of Diety, as that would deny freewill to the leap of faith.

Reincarnation and the Veil of Forgetting


It has been put forward that in a Plan of our Logos,  the evolution of souls is accelerated using the so-called veil of forgetting. Coming into incarnation the soul has no memory of previous incarnations. Being aware of multiple lives would prove the existence of soul, and thereby eliminate the leap of faith which requires that there be no proof of Diety. As these lives are  veiled, the mind/body/spirit complex i.e. person, is transformed, by  belief, derived from experience and thought, over multiple lifetimes, by karma, in which gains and losses through intention and desire occur, and by the choice of faith,  which rewards the believer for actions which are not fruitful in the material sense. By dedication to purpose, and so to polarize towards that choice of service, to self or to others, the entity refines the metal of the soul. If this veil of forgetting were not in place, the being might simply be unmoving, contented, knowing the ever present unity with Diety. Karmic debt from error would be avoided, who would make such a choice? No striving, since catalsyt and circumstance would not be sought or encountered; no polarity, since the dark side would be obvious illusion. Importantly, faith would be weak, as the one who never knows blindness appreciates vision less, compared to him/her who lived in darkness and then finds light. What is it about faith and freewill, that is so essential, that the whole of the material reality would be wrought to ensure it? Supposedly, in the less ornate arcana blueprint before this one, the pattern consisted of fewer stations, and was found to be less effective at accelerating the souls evolution. Much of the catalyst and experience of this illusion/reality is geared toward the transformative freewill choice of service. What would it be like without this veil, certainly daunting would be the consideration of how far the soul has to travel in order to evolve, were it aware of truth beyond our limited sight. To me, this suggests the sublimity of the Plan of Diety, the scope and love for all creation, the light which is created out of love and freewill. Organized, Everpresent, All That Is, good, bad and indifferent, in Whom nothing is lost or unloved. The usual disclaimer applies here, in that Freemasonry rejects dogma, and invites skepticism, consider what is useful from these ideas and leave behind what doesn't resonate.

The Athanor / Atanor of Alchemy


The Athanor of Alchemy. Know Thyself. Dross, gold and fire, purifying the metal of the soul. Divesting ourselves of the vices and superfluities of life, to fit ourselves as living stone for the builders use. The Logos' Plan is designed to give catalyst to the freewill experience, that is like fire and air for the forgers furnace, the metaphysical athanor. Through the choices we make and the consequences we encounter, by freewill, the metal of our soul becomes purified and the grade of the polarized soul in service to self or others is established. And Faith, the necessary element is found or not. Interesting, that scientific man has the tools and manuscripts to understand the philosophies of the ancients, combined with many new sources coming to us. Still it is very difficult for us to discern truth in this world, especially if we don't realize that our inability to prove Diety is a condition required for the leap of faith to occur. If it were easy we would probably reject it. They say that truth is simple but that man is complex. The more empirical we are, the easier it is to think we are separate from All That Is. The source of all distortion is the limit of the viewpoint, since we cannot conceive of a Diety capable of such exquisite design we miss the possibility that our reality is designed to engender faith and catalyze the soul to reach for its potential. So it is the limited mind, which discounts the potentials of the spiritual Plan of Logos and its unseen geometry. The alchemical knowledge, the toiling hermetic silence, of each seeker attempting to discern truth is the slow fire of the athanor which tempers the mind and heart toward a purified degree which is capable of teaching and learning and acting within the confines of brotherly love and affection, of service to others, not seeking and manipulating through power over others and separation from All That Is. Removing the dross of vice and superfluity with catalyst, becoming gold from lead.

Origins of Freemasonry in Sacred Architecture


Whereas Freemasonry has some documented evidence of its origins prior to the early 18th century, there is a skein of proof in stone, that put to the test of logic and probability, suggests that the fraternity could indeed have origins back to the time of Egypt.
Logical premises must be acknowledged to outline the limits of the argument. First, that ancient architectural knowledge found to be economically useful would be jealously guarded, and that its prevailing use and dissemination would be determined by the limits of wealth, commerce and technology. The Art of Architecture would therefore be held secret to a degree and would only burgeon at times of economic prosperity when an organized system of government generated the excess capital necessary for great public works. It would be disseminated only to those proven worthy of its power and only to the limits of the educated society. Western culture has a continuous line of empire echoing back, from the Gothic-Christian era to the Greco-Roman and even to the Phoenician-Egyptian. So it is certainly possible that a body of growing architectural knowledge could have accumulated and been passed on. If so, then  geometric symmetry in design must resonate in harmonic analysis of  great monuments in all these eras. In other words, the designs of  buildings must have common blueprints and shared themes. This indeed proves to be the case.

The Great Pyramid and the tomb of Rameses, show a sublime proportioning theme. The mathematical and geometrical proportion known as the golden section is strongly projected in its construction. Known as "phi" and equal to 1.618, called simply the section by the Greeks as reported by Proclus "On Euclid" and considered by Kepler, in Mystericum Cosmographicum, in the 16th century "a gem, one of the 2 treasures of geometry "  The golden section is within the geometric pentagram,  found in every line with its intersects, and was said to be employed as a secret sign of brotherhood by the Pythagoreans, as Lucian writes "On Slips of Greeting."  The Great Pyramid triangle, with 1, being base edge to base center, phi, being the hypotenuse with angle of 51'50, and square of phi, apex capstone to base center, is the only right triangle, or triangle of equity, whose sides are in geometric progression. The Pythagorean theorem, with which we are all familiar, is also inherent in the Great Pyramid design. The Tomb ofRameses includes Phi within its geometric plan, using the golden rectangle, another extension of the phi theme. It is safe to say that the Egyptians utilized the section phi and that its priestly class of architects knew of the proportioning theme. We know that Pythagoras traveled there in his search of philosophy and may have been an initiate long before the Alexandrian school brought together learned men from all over the civilized west.

The Pythagorean viewpoint of reality naturally led to number mysticism which could easily have been transmitted mouth to ear, into cabbala, operative and speculative masonry, and Christian mysticism. So closely were the geometric secrets of the pentagram held and the constructions derived from it, that it is written by Iamblicus in his "Life of Pythagorus" that Hippasus, a Pythagorean, upon publishing the construction of the sphere of 12 pentagons, the dodecahedron, perished by shipwreck for his impiety, having been given credit for its discovery, whereas it really belonged to HIM (Pythagoras). Founded in Sicily and Calabria around 500 BC the brotherhood and school with its several degrees had great influence throughout Magna Graecia, to such extent that many of the Greek philosophers such as Plato, were said to be initiates.  The Parthenon is a virtual study in design using the golden section. Plato articulated the esoteric schools creeds, in Timaeus he writes, that "It was then that all these kinds of things thus established received their shapes from the Ordering One, through the action of ideas and numbers. That the vision that the universe is a harmoniously ordered whole, that analogy and symmetry, proportion and ratio govern the cosmos or order is much worked out by Plato and the Pythagoreans.

The Roman empire, reached even into England with its language, commerce and grand planned cities. The Pantheon of Rome  resounds with the use of Phi, in its construction.The practical secrets of building were transmitted by the corporations of stonemasons from the Roman "Collegia Opificum" and continued through the monastic architectural shops of the Benedictine Carolingians, to the secular guild craftsmen of the gothic age.

It is noted that the explosion of Cathedral building coincided to a degree with the returning Templars. Adding mortar to the secrets of design , new heights in building were achieved. Gothic designers added the cruciform theme, in praise of the sacrifice of the Anointed One. The predominant leitmotif which by dividing a circle into 5-10 or 20 parts automatically introduces the  potentials  of the golden ratio in harmonic design.  A substantial majority of Gothic cathedral plans  can be set within the fundamental Gothic Master diagram, based on the proportions of the Cut, T, Tau. The explosion of building occurred with great experimentation, closed arches and new techniques of ribbing and groining literally raised the roofs, advances in stained glass brought in the light.

The Lodges at Strassbourg and elsewhere gave out marks to second degree companions at the end of their probationary period, which remained for life their password and they had to be able to prove the mark with underlying lattice when traveling to other lodges. These master marks and their proof never shows the pentagram, pentagon or decagon and were not secret, and yet their proof was supposed to be close held, that would suggest that the golden section was not to be taught willy nilly. These marks did in fact get full use throughout cathedrals in Europe on keystones. The whole development of European and western Architecture with theme, As above, so below ,micro and macro cosmos with temple and savior perhaps linking the two is borne out in the geometry of the "divine "proportion Phi. The oldest Masonic documents from England suggest the king Athelstan established the first guild of Masons at York. The Cooke manuscript in the British Museum, a copy circa 1430 of an earlier document quotes Pythagoras (aka  Peter Gower in Mackey) and Hermes as having revealed the secrets of Euclidean Geometry to the human race and the same document obliges the mason to hermetic silence regarding the secrets of his craft.

It seems that the secrets of  sacred geometry kept winking in and out of view throughout the long western history, and this was logical too as given the tumultuous times, groups of craftsman scholars, and monastic brotherhoods, bound to silence would have largely been out of the struggles of power and public attention. These closed lodges would have been a magnet for people who desired the privileges afforded the journeyman stonemason.
Throughout the 19th century architects and archeologists tried to find the keys for the beautiful proportions of the Greek and gothic monuments, to find builder rules and canons of proportion. The secret of  greek symmetry and gothic harmonic composition resides in the Pythagorean pentagram and  denominates the golden section, which we find way back in the Great Pyramid and in the proportions of the rose, from the logarithms of the sea shell to the proportions of the human body. Take a measure from your feet to your belly , then a measure to the head. By means and extremes compare this to the numbers 1 and 1.618. Look at the joints of the fingers, see the divine proportion, a ratio found only in organic growth.
If you care to learn more about this, acquire the book " The Geometry of Art and Life" written in the 50's by Matila Ghyka, from which this article is largely taken, of a more recent vintage Mario Livio's The Golden Ratio is very well written.

Edgar Cayce on the Masonic Order

It is often asked if there is a connection between Freemasonry and Edgar Cayce. The American Prophet was not a Freemason. He did make mention of the order though in his voluminous work. The paperback book Edgar Cayce on Prophecy, published in 1967 by Carter, is a short compilation on the probable realities available to Cayce through the Akashic records, we are informed. Chapter 7, Destiny of Nations, opens as follows, The peace of the world will be shaped upon the American ideals and those of the masonic order! " Not that the world is to become a Masonic Order," Cayce explained, but that the ideals will prevail. It goes on to state that these were from 29 readings between '21 and '44. In another reading that "God is not a respecter of persons" and further in 1938 "Each Nation, each people have builded-by the  very spirit of the people themselves- a purposeful position in the skein, the affairs, not only of the earth, but of the universe!" So what we can gather from the channeled material is that the intentions of the individual and collectively the nation redound into the universe, and that a kind of collective karma marks the nations identity. Freemasonry no doubt had a large influence at the founding of America, and as we articulate that all men are equal and meet on the level, and that the Creator drops a plumb line true and unbiased in judgement, and that we travel upon a level of time from whence none have returned, it is good to know that the apron of freemasonry remains suitably unstained at the level of the Akashic record.

The Masonic Chequered / Checkerboard Floor

The allegorical teaching of the black and white chessboard floor in masonic lodges hearkens back to the free will choice that we all make on whether we will serve the principle of selfishness or selflessness, separation or unity, darkness or light, in this polarized material world. The black and white mosaic flooring is a long standing mystical symbol, the square shape oft representing the physical world, as opposed to the circle representing spirit.

If we accept the premise that the spiritual existed before the material and is the template upon which the physical world is overlaid, then the laws of physics are laid over on the spiritual laws. An example is the spiritual law of karma, its compliment in physics being Newton's (a freemason) laws of force in action and potential. We now know that matter exists in a polarized state of positive and negative electro magnetic force, within which it is ordered and work occurs, so too then the spiritual in the free will creation, for choice to exist and spiritual work to occur, the  extremes of the spirit must be real, both the good and the sin, that which missed the mark, in intention and in effect.

The checkerboard is therefore emblematic of the free will choice of service in the balanced and polarized world. Free will is one of the primary laws of our dynamic, it is required for faith to develop and for the metal of the souls purity to be established, in a environment where proof of Diety does not exist. It is said that no matter how far we plumb the innermost secrets of matter, we will not have proof of Diety, for if Diety were revealed, freewill as regards the choice of faith would be denied. The law is not to be abrogated.

It is a noteworthy achievement that Freemasonry has preserved the teaching of polarization in its ancient teaching, which emphasizes the seekers choice and path of service. The daily choices that one makes are shaded towards either the selfish or selfless service.  As one moves toward either the egoistic or altruistic pole, through belief, imagination and desire; the intentions and choices cause experience, which in turn draw on more catalyst, and so over time the purity of the metal of the soul is established. If one has conflicts: intending say ...benevolence but then acting maliciously, one will ineffectually keep bumping up against the same wall of confusion and stagnation, and the souls grading upon that scale of polarity, will reflect the lack of conviction, these are the fence sitters who do not choose a principle to serve.

Some say this  is but one density among many of the souls evolution, where self awareness is first nurtured, it offers The choice on a balanced field for the entity to gain, lose or be unchanged as regards the chosen service extreme, through self determination. The checkered floor is also analogous to the shepherds embrace, arms crossing the chest, signifying the choice, to serve either the right handed path, ankh of sacrifice in hand or that of the other hand, the path which pulls us to the illusion of separation, and control over others. It too is reminiscent of the two pillars to the temple, now known as Jachin and Boaz, strength and establishment, as all who remember the middle chamber long form can attest to, but anciently referring to the potentials of the mind in a polarized state. It has been said that a man can not serve two masters, and so it is, to establish a suitable grade within the confines here, one must choose to move upon the squares of darkness or of light, in order to advance to harvestable grade.

 The Creator turns from neither, as in reality, far beyond this illusion, all is truelly One. Logoi, Infinite Intelligence, existing before matter, created means for the acceleration of soul evolution, in which faith is helpful to move towards light. What is above written is mostly not an accepted tenet of Freemasonry, and is only one expansion of the basic premise of the pattern, which there is little dispute that it emphasizes freewill and darkness and light.

President George Washington at Trinity Church In Newport


Still standing in Newport Rhode Island is Trinity Episcopal church which some say bears a striking similarity in design to church designs by Christopher Wren, a freemason of renown. In that church which was built in 1726, the box pew where it is said, General Washington sat, has a small plaque denoting the occasion in 1781. In the picture included, the pew may be seen to the right side of the original raised pulpit. The queen on her visit also has a plaque there, seated as she was in the place of honor. The church  has several Tiffany windows, to one side which are fantastic. If you get a chance to visit Newport see Trinity Church, where a Father of the Country  and Freemason once prayed.

Nag Hammadi Gnostic Library Gospel of Thomas

In 1970 the codices the Egyptian government released the 4th century codices which had been been found in an earthen jar in a cave near the town of Nag Hammadi. These were sacred texts concerning Neo Platonism and Gnosticism, and incorporated many apocrypha about the Master Jesus. The Gospel of Thomas in particular has many quotes attributed to Jesus. His parables are powerful and teachings require thought. "O lord, there are many around the drinking trough but there is nothing in the cistern" It is suggested that the Great IAM is within all things, turn over a rock I AM there, split a piece of wood , IAM there. In the Gospel of Philip it is said that the Master loved Mary more than any of the disciples and kissed her upon the mouth. At the council of Nicea much of Gnosticism was excluded, the accumulated mysticism which attempted to merge the teachings of Jesus into the ancient sophistry was excised making suitable a more plebian understanding for the masses as yet unable to lift there heads from the constant toil for survival. The Gnostic Bible illuminates much in the way of what may have been kept in the library of Alexandria before the arsons destruction, and of what the Essenes may have been influenced by, of the merging of astronomy, mysticism, natural law, and Hebrew tradition.

The Educated Man is the Enemy of Tyranny

Freemasons in America were the force behind public education for a very good reason. They knew that men could be swayed in their thinking, and in order for a man to be an advocate for the Constitution, with all its lofty thinking, it would take an educated man to stand up for it. When you examine the ways in which men have been brainwashed over the generations it is usually the combination of dire circumstances and a lack of educated thinking.During Nazi Germany's rise, it was that after WWI the German economy was hamstrung and that the Great Depression was happening. If you look at Islamic Fundamentalism you see a complete lack of classic education, hence the Mullahs and the royal families can scapegoat external forces to explain the misery of the common man. In America today we see a declining quality of education amongst the people. We don't seek out underlying causes and motivations and we are easily lead by the powers and efforts of those who would keep us away from a thoughtful understanding of what is occurring.

Mystical Service and the Chamber of Reflection


It has been said that when you serve others you are also serving yourself. That is true if you consider that in the effort to strengthen ones polarity towards service to others aka positive polarity, ones primary vehicle is that of selfless service. When each man in his mind privately considers his course, accomplishments and tenets of his life, he is bound to consider what he has done for others. One doesn't need to be a hermit on the mountain,, a great Maji, or some such. The simple understanding of the Law is that One should choose, ....serve others or serve self. And once the choice is made you move along that path to prove the metal. Does it sully the purity of the service if one has the motive of self improvement? Does it motivate action for the Seeker? In masonry we act in concert with our brothers, group action is more difficult than the action of the individual but can have exponentially good benefit.

Bornholm, Gotland and the Hanseatic League

On the Island of Bornholm near Denmark in Scandinavia are found the Burgundian Templar Churches with a virtual study in sacred euclidian geometry in orientation. It also is home to northern europes largest medieval fortress Hammershus, built in 1200's as the launch point for Scandinavian crusades. Check out the book The Templars Secret Island by Haagensen and decide for yourself. At the very least the whole number system of measurement useful for our ancient brethren, at the back of the book is vital. The round churches are Templar design, very similar to the Newport Tower Rhode Island, and it is known that the island was named Burgunderland and is tied to the Templar story in France. Also found their was a cache of golden medallions with long haired kings depicted on them. Maybe you saw a bit of the History Channels "Holy Grail In America" film about the Kensington Rune stone. It leads to the book by Scott Wolter "The Hooked X". Supposing that a land quest party searching for a new foundation west of Vinland with an educated Gotland Cistercian monk, did get to the midwest of north america via the great lakes or the Hudson Bay. Edgar Cayce certainly suggests that Norrmen got all the way to Montana. These runes tell a tale and the author has well refuted all arguements against the Kensington Stones authenticity, at the very least. With Stone holes and the Sinclair voyage and the Newport Tower, with winter solstice alignment at the egg/keystone and Bornholm measurement system, your gonna enjoy it. One begins to see the logic of a Templar island strongholds in the Baltic Sea, between the Teutonic Knights and the empowered Hanseatic league out of Germany, at Bornhom and at Gotaland, whose standard by the way is a lamb bleeding into the Holy Graal. The tie between the Hanse associations and Masonry has been speculated upon and also the knights power to protect the rights of the craftsman within their strongholds. If the Hooked x is part of the Easter Table, secret dating table and we find it on Columbus sigla 80 years later. One has to consider that the Knights of Christ from Tomar would have the Gotaland Cistercian nordic mapping for their trip. Combine that with the Greek/Arabic/Jewish astolabes in the learned cartographer centers of Spain and Portugal, and you have fine potentials for navigation. Scott Wolter puts this together nicely, check out the Utube lecture Scott Wolter-1 through 7. No way a voyage with that much clout didn't have the best mapping. The whole new world exploration may have been promulgated because of the Cistercian connections in medieval Europe. So just like the secret/sacred geometry of Gothic architecture, from Gotaland, we have runes and triple dating using the secret easter tables, viking sagas and advanced astrolabes leading to the new world from Portugal and Spain, with the Knights of Christ, with templar masts, and Columbus sigla and reaching back further to the round templar structures at Newport with its Orphic Egg pointing to a New Jerusalem in good old Minnesota. The adaptation of Christianity was well along in Scandinavia by this time and no doubt the Charters of the Knights helped to sate the adventurous spirit of the Normen.

The Law of Confusion

Also known as the Law of Freewill, it is said to be a governing principle of this veiled reality, a status said to be watched over and protected by many. The Seeker/Hierophant spends some time finding suitable answers to the big questions, often they are the answers that were given in youth, but the reasons why they are true just aren't adequately laid out. Confusion is noted in hindsight, when the full measure of learning has been accomplished. And once the individuals truth is formulated, the intentions will be undertaken. Or sadly one can take ones eye off the proverbial ball and never find ones intended path, wind up in neutral and sit on the fence, or reverse course in the incarnation and move toward the opposite polarity.
They say that it is the Logos' Plan, that we should seek in relative darkness, in order to appreciate the Light. Were it not for this veil of confusion, Importantly, the Plan wouldn't afford the accelerated Soul advancement that this polarized freewill plane/density offers. We wouldn't know the spectrum of suffering and sorrow nor joys and teach/learning which freewill and hence duality provides. Nor would we know Faith, since Diety would be obvious, nor the dharmic and karmic struggle, nor the choice of service/polarity, of which principle to serve, the selfish or selfless dynamic, on which the souls grade is supposedly determined, after many incarnations.
So we must find our own answers that ring true. Those accepted and freely chosen, as with faith, as absolute proof of Diety is unavailable. The leap of faith can occur in this environment. Like the Fool tarot card, stepping off into the abyss, we anchor our beliefs on a principle which apparently has little reward here, while the material polarized world often highly rewards self service. So the Soul makes sense of the confusion and chooses a direction. One path can lead at Harvest to the Adversary, That Which is Not, the dark pyramid of enslavement and power over others, while another path leads to the Collective of freely chosen understanding. The third and well trodden path is of indifference, that of having to repeat the grade because of not having met the high threshold required to advance beyond the Choice Density. This is similar to the separation of wheat from chaff, though in the course of time eventually we all advance/return to the Infinite Creator. Is there anything else?
So this is a version of the Law of Confusion, aka freewill, where the Choice is made, the choice which then empowers the will, which tempers the metal of the soul, in the fire of catalyst. Thanks for the opportunity to share this viewpoint. It is the viewpoint of The Law of One

The Geometry of the Flower of Life

It is found in the Osirian Temple in Egypt, perhaps the oldest of tombs discovered deep underground. Interestingly the geometric design is burned into the pillar by a technique which today we could not emulate, nor obviously could the ancient Egyptians. The flower is based on the vesica pescis, that symbol which most closely imitates the Diety in state of fractal holographic replication. And of course is used to also denote the Piscean Age, in which the Master Returned. Judging from the movie "Thrive" it is the essence of the future energy source, derived from Torus spin motors, some Tesla and some Haramein, yet to be designed. The "Thrive" movie looks to scapegoat the Rockefellers and other power brokers, which is unnecessary. Interesting that the focus is on fractals, as many times the crop circles demonstrate fractal designs. Organic fractals of course being those incorporating the golden mean, from the center out, while inorganic fractals can emulate the six circle matrix found in the flower of life, from any point conforming at the outer edge to the pattern. If it is so that the New Age is allowing to incarnate only Souls of positive polarity, then perhaps we will move from a system of organic like growth to one of inorganic growth, with less centralized power and free energy. Wouldn't that be a nice change for the exhausted Earth Mother. Wonderful that our ancient Brethren happened to build with square and compasses, those tools required to make the six petalled flower of Life.
