In my own quest for the reality, I began studying the major religions of the world, both modern and ancient. What I began to locate 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 all religious paths. Esoteric is derived 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 book of the 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 fresh dispensation to humanity’s knowledge of a loving father, rather than 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 was the esoteric meanings behind my own faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a fresh knowledge 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 major religions. A truth that gave people a way to interact with 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 got a negative rap. They got labels such as for example witchcraft and “of the devil “.Something that didn’t adhere to the business distinct the Catholic Church was feared, hated, and ultimately killed. When 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, because the Christ, had come to offer most of humanity. Modern Mystery School
A lie told a lot of times is believed more than the truth told once.
However the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings provide a meaning and a purpose to life they explain a far more cosmic knowledge of the fantastic energy we call God which contain references to our ancestors “from the stars” which makes sense of the mythology of religions. And they give us hope for future years, that there is indeed an agenda and a purpose that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how exactly every time humanity is ready, a great one or avatar, involves the planet to offer 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 as one 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 are in a thrilling period of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are coming back out to the open, available to 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 part of the divine, integrating the divine masculine that is out-pictured through the Piscean age, with the incoming divine feminine of the Aquarian age.
Sophia leads us to a greater knowledge 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 when she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
Once the student is ready, the teacher appears…
