Within my search for the reality, I began studying the major religions of the world, both modern and ancient. What I began to find was that there was a simple truth underlying all these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I learned that there was an esoteric and an exoteric meaning to all or any religious paths. Esoteric comes 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 guide with this hidden wisdom, the Master Jesus spoke of mysteries reserved for disciples which he didn’t provide the public. His public teachings, the parables, were meant to create a new dispensation to humanity’s comprehension of a loving father, rather than a vengeful deity.
Exoteric Comes 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 very own faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a new comprehension of the conflicting messages that organized religion had presented on the centuries. I began to see that there were other more meaningful connotations to the written traditions of major religions. A truth that gave all of us ways to relate solely to the cosmic creator with.
Before the final century, the ancient wisdom teachings were only open 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 received a bad rap. They received labels such as witchcraft and “of the devil “.Anything 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 was not true. The situation was The Bible itself was so manipulated that it lost a lot of the truths that the Master Jesus, as the Christ, had come to provide all of humanity. Modern Mystery School
A lie told one thousand times is believed more compared to the truth told once.
However the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings provide a meaning and an intention your they explain an even more cosmic comprehension of the great energy we call God which contain references to your ancestors “from the stars” that produces sense of the mythology of religions. And they provide us hope for future years, that there is indeed an idea and an intention that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how exactly each time 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 whenever a critical mass has been reached which can be ready for more of The Truth as you Age shifts into the next Age. Today we are shifting from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius.
A Personal Relationship with The Cosmos
We are in an exciting amount of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are finding its way back out to the open, available to all or any that are questing for the truth. One particular school was my very own alma mater, Sancta Sophia Seminary in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. Santa Sophia means “holy wisdom “.Energetically, it is anchored in Christo/Sophia, Yin/Yang, a balanced part 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 comprehension 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 whenever she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears…
