In my quest for the facts, I began studying the major religions of the entire world, both modern and ancient. What I began to get was that there is a fundamental truth underlying all these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I learned that there is an esoteric and an exoteric meaning to any or all religious paths. Esoteric hails from the Greek word, eso meaning “within” – that which can be hidden, unseen, secret, inner – or out-of-sight. In the Bible – which can be reality a guide of the hidden wisdom, the Master Jesus spoke of mysteries reserved for disciples which he did not provide the 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 get 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 absolutely 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 started to note that there were other more meaningful connotations to the written traditions of most major religions. A truth that gave all of us a way to relate solely 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 through 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 did not abide by 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 so it lost much of the truths that the Master Jesus, since the Christ, had come to give each of humanity.
A lie told a thousand times is believed more compared to the truth told once.
However the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings offer a meaning and a purpose to life they explain a more cosmic understanding of the fantastic energy we call God that contain references to the ancestors “from the stars” that makes sense of the mythology of most religions. And they provide us hope for future years, that there is indeed an idea and a purpose that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how every time humanity is ready, a good one or avatar, involves the planet to give us another step on the ladder towards union with cosmic creator. These great teachers begin to appear whenever a critical mass has been reached that are ready for more of The Truth together 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 returning out into the open, available to any or all that are questing for the truth. One particular 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 can be out-pictured through the Piscean age, with the incoming divine feminine of the Aquarian age. Modern Mystery School
Sophia leads us to a higher understanding of the wisdom that heals duality. Sophia does not threaten. she just withdraws once we do not accept her. Inner knowing, which can be her way, is subtle and fragile, but has such power that whenever she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
