Within my quest for the facts, I started studying the major religions of the entire world, both modern and ancient. What I started to get was that there was a simple truth underlying each one of these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I found that there was an esoteric and an exoteric meaning to all religious paths. Esoteric is derived 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 with this 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 fresh dispensation to humanity’s understanding of a loving father, rather than a vengeful deity.
Exoteric Comes 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 had been the esoteric meanings behind my very own faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a fresh understanding of the conflicting messages that organized religion had presented on the centuries. I started to see that there were other more meaningful connotations to the written traditions of major religions. A truth that gave us all a method to relate solely to the cosmic creator with.
Before the last 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 during the reign of terror called the Inquisition, and the mystery schools got a negative rap. They got labels such as witchcraft and “of the devil “.Something that did not stick 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 issue was The Bible itself was so manipulated that it lost a lot of the truths that the Master Jesus, while the Christ, had come to give each of humanity.
A lie told a thousand times is believed more than the truth told once.
But the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings offer a meaning and an intention to life they explain a far more cosmic understanding of the truly amazing energy we call God that have references to your ancestors “from the stars” that produces sense of the mythology of religions. And they offer us hope for future years, that there’s indeed an idea and an intention 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, concerns the planet to give us another step on the ladder towards union with cosmic creator. These great teachers begin to appear when 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. Modern Mystery School
A Personal Relationship with The Cosmos
We’re in a fantastic period of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are finding its way back out to the open, available to all who’re questing for the truth. One such school was my very 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 facet of the divine, integrating the divine masculine which can be out-pictured during the Piscean age, with the incoming divine feminine of the Aquarian age.
Sophia leads us to a higher understanding of the wisdom that heals duality. Sophia does not threaten. she just withdraws once we don’t accept her. Inner knowing, which can be her way, is subtle and fragile, but has such power that when she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears…
