All Orders are rooted and established and constructed on a foundation that has to be embedded in an intellectual and philosophical base (this is essential in establishing the fraternal bond and given purpose and meaning to why it is important to be a part of a particular Order or Society. This is also necessary to solidify direction and leadership that eventually leads to followership, which must be undergirded by a set of ideas that have been historically rooted in the mystics of Esoteric, Gnostic and Occult. Thus, every fraternal movement and/or organization has a mission statement, as well as objectives, goals and organizational structure. This will encompass core beliefs, practices, requirements, etc., in which each initiate or neophyte will have access to the same pedagogy and serve as the guidelines to their entry into the order of brotherhood/sisterhood relative to elevation (the so-called transition from darkness to light). The organizational admission standards have to be based on something that is tangible and agreed upon by the organizational leadership. The Orders have an agreed philosophical curriculum; this is what has made the Freemasons successful as an organization because they have an agreed history and the ritual is tied to ancient practices and historical events, and persons of significance whether it is the Knights Templar's, Jesuits, Christian Islamic Crusades, Scottish Rites, York Rites, Knights of Columbus, Elks, Odd-Fellows, etc., they all have an established protocol relative to reading materials and ritual requirements..
It is from here that such powerful Orders such as: the Illuminati, Roundtable, House Rothschild, Carlyle Group, Club of Rome, the Milner Group, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations and others seek to rule and dominate the world—these enlightened organizations have always been well financed and possesses an Elite Class of membership. But there are layers of shields and covers in which the outer circle of the membership do not know who the true powerbrokers, which function within the inner circle. The secret societies such as the Boule, the African American Order does not factor into the real power schemes nor does layman Freemasonry; these fraternal Orders are merely civic and social societies, but this is not to suggest that on a minor level they do not wield influence and power over their constituents—these Orders do posses a system of networking that factors into the political, economic and social outcomes of black America, but their main principle is to serve as a buffer and as a distraction in protecting and guarding the real Power Brokers.
Let me insure you that Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Snoop Dogg, Madonna, Eminem, Beyonce, etc., just to mention a few and for the ignorant public to suggest and imply that these low-level operatives are part of the Illuminati is ludicrous, perhaps its founder Dr. Adam Weishaupt is turning over in his grave to insult him and his Order of Illuminati by mentioning these ignorant entertainers and celebrities who do not have a clue of how the world function or operate as being members of the Illuminati. There is an Invisible Hand that controls the global banking system and dictates what political course the world leaders are going to take. They even have the power to determine wars and conflicts and their outcomes, they even determine who eats on the planet and who starves on the planet, they are also above all nations jurisprudence systems and function at the highest levels of the sovereign individual status. Jay-Z and no other entertainer have this type of global influence and power (these entertainers are only pawns and decoys). However, these same entertainers desire to make the public believe that they are part of a covert order of brotherhood and sisterhood that operates under the guise and cloak of a secret society—they intentionally infer that this secret society is the Illuminati (this false organizational connection wins them kudos in the world of social media). The tabloids and various entertaining networks and paparazzi photographers reinforce this foolishness by offering up snapshots of entertainers supposedly given the signs and symbols of the Illuminati (the real members of the Illuminati have no use to give signs, they are nameless and faceless and we all feel their influence and power daily when we go to the gas pump and also we can feel that the U.S. Dollar has lost is power as the monetary currency of the world). Thus, even my daughter and sons have shown me pictures on Instagram, Facebook and on various sites on the Internet where these Black entertainers are flashing the sign of a pyramid and others are flashing the sign of all SEEING EYE OF HERU (Horace) and Ausar (Osiris) and Aset (Isis) and this is supposed to be clear evidence of their Illuminati connections.
I do not care how much money Jay-Z may profess to have, his wealth does not even constitute one generation of wealth-holders and he will never be allowed to sit in the same room with the Rothschilds and Rockefellers or any of the Invisible Dynastic Family members unless he is there to shine their shoes and go fetch some coffee or may be he is being given an assignment by them. It is an insult to mention Jay-Z and others in the same breath of the Rothschilds and Rockefellers (the chief Illuminati)—Jay-Z is powerless and is a member of the Goyim like the rest of us who represents the 85% of humanity. It is these individuals that make the world go around; figuratively speaking they have so much wealth and power and are connected on every level that one cannot imagine that this small group rules the entire world and answers to no one (they have power to make and break entertainers). They will never invite the likes of Jay-Z and Beyonce into their world. They have not invited President Barack Obama into their world, if you do not know this by now, he works for the Order and he to is powerless and takes his directions from his paymasters. They have the original Holy Grail and the original Sanskrit spiritual written texts, the Sumerians texts and have the true keys to unlock the Da Vinci Code. The Illuminati dates back to at least 1776 and European Freemasonry goes back to 1717 in which most Orders modeled and fashioned themselves after Freemasonry, but lest not get it twisted there are layers of Freemasonry which is even beyond High Degree Freemasonry (meaning the 33rd Degree is just an outward deception).
I believe they systematically stole our ancient wisdom and knowledge from us, and we have the job, duty and responsibility to reclaim what rightfully belongs to us. I have been on this journey for many years now and the only thing that is going to wake us up from our slumber is the undiluted truth. They robbed us of the knowledge of self and kind; they did not desire for us to know that it was black people who built the ancient civilizations in Kemet (ancient Egypt) and Kush (ancient Ethiopia) because to know this would have inspired us to do great things even in 2013. Black people gave the world the true practice of Freemasonry, if you view the overt symbolism, rituals, sacraments, relics, etc., it all points to some aspect of the Nubian people. The signs and symbols belong to the black man. Egypt once use to be a black skinned nation until the invaders and imposters came.
I am familiar with the works of Aleister Crowley and others of this type school of thought. I am also very familiar with the ritual and symbolic parallel of some of these pagan traditions. Many of them are rooted in the worship of the Winter and Summer Solstice and are played out as complimentary and oppositional forces relative to the Solar Deities (we have these philosophical prototypes and allegorical similarities in the stories of Ausar (Osiris), Adonis, Mithras, Apollo, etc. There is a very good read authored by Kersey Graves titled, "The World's Sixteen Crucified Saviors". Thus, many alternative religions (and traditional religions as well) deal with the birth, death, resurrection and ascension themes as the foundation of their beliefs and practices. Thus, even blood oaths are based on old pagan traditions; I have touched on some of these various subjects in articles that I have posted on my Blog. The teachings of esoteric, Gnostic, metaphysical science, occult thoughts have one primary objective, which is almost always rooted in the concepts of enlightenment and morality; these are key phrases that will be ever occurring in the neophytes journey of moving perspective initiates toward a goal of elevation. The Mason's rely heavily on the symbolic character of Hiram Abiff, the Master Builder to hammer home the importance of morality.
The Hiram Abiff legend is the key to unlocking so many pieces relative to our political, economic, and social history in America. Many of us who have traveled the Masonic path; even after we are raised, we still remain victims to failing to acquire the knowledge of self and we do not understand nor accept that the dramatized Master Mason ritual enacted in the third degree ceremony is actually a rendition of what happened to the black man and black woman of America. They do not realized that it was they who were hit in head and brought on a westerly course; they have not accepted that Chattel Slavery was one of the greatest crimes that were ever committed against humanity. I am sorry to tell you this that in most Freemasonic lodges and their govern jurisdictions ignorance is pervasive and in most black Masonic lodges whether Prince Hall and/or non-Prince Hall, it is more about the social—partying, drinking alcohol and chasing women (not all brothers fit into this category because I know and interact with some serious minded young Masonic brothers who have committed themselves to study and self-improvement). I have an obligation to tell the truth and this often makes me unpopular (it also made Jesus and Muhammad unpopular so I am in good company), but it does not matter because I can stand perpendicular on the square ninety degrees upright and speak the truth. The older brothers are stuck in one place which is mastering the ritual, but often truly negating most of the Land Marks of masonry and remember we were systematically made blind, deaf and dumb to the knowledge of self. What is Masonry: Masonry is a beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols (there is so much in the Speculative definition).
Most Orders do not prescribe to a religious dogma, but are open to individuals of various religions when it comes to membership (this an example of the universality approach). Membership into the public low low-level front type Orders are of course entirely different from membership into the Higher Elitist Orders; membership in the Upper Echelon Orders is rooted in longstanding aristocratic blood linage and supported by Dynastic Family Wealth—this membership is highly selective and highly guarded. There is no application or ballot cast; it is only made available to the heirs as part of their class/cast hierarchy and to ensure the continuation of the agenda of dominating the affairs of humanity by controlling the world’s wealth. They constitute the Hidden Hand and they have been taught to see themselves as gods on earth. Yet, the principles of religion are often subtly incorporated in the philosophical teachings of the Order. For example, in Freemasonry, it only requires that one believe in Deity whether he is called Yahweh, Elohim, Allah, Jah, Jehovah, etc., in which all faiths are welcome to be members. A mystical philosophical curriculum will be the guidelines and teachings that are prescribed by the Order; thus, most Societies and Orders do not openly make their rituals and teachings available to outsiders who have not been initiated into the Order. The devised ritual and philosophy often can only be obtained in secrecy (some who have entered into these various orders and have later found it necessary to breach their oath and reveal publically the rituals and teachings). Freemasons reject the term or accusation that they are a secret society, but they consider themselves to be an organization with secrets.
I do think that all Oaths are designed to create a sublime and holy sanctity of what is at hand and/or going to be undertaking. I think many of them acknowledges the presences of a Higher Power (this solidifies fraternal and sorority affirmation—even if they view themselves as god). Freemasons often include the language of the Grand Architect of the Universe as a supplication to the undertaking task. They gather in his name and by his power and invoking a Higher Being, it creates an equal high level of seriousness for the traveling Neophyte. Moreover, with any solemn obligation and undertaking, it is meant to achieve something outside of our physical reality and tap into our deepest spiritual realms. I know in the West, divine reverence is almost always invoke as part of the initiation lexicon and this gives a deeper spiritual credence to the mystery steps that the initiate is about to embark upon. This is ordinary confirmed via on a book of divine law (Vedas, Qur'an, Torah or the Gospel, etc.) which allows the potential candidate to visualize the importance of morality and self-Improvement. Those of us who are awake might even choose to take this undertaking on ancient scrolls such as the "Husia: Sacred Wisdom of Ancient Egypt" or even on the book titled, "The Egyptian Book of the Dead: The Book of Going Forth by Day". This will correlate the potential candidate to a traveling path that reminds him/her that this mission is much bigger than his/her physical self by being rooted in the spiritual realm and have it seen through the metaphysical lens of the third Eye.
I know Freemasonry has many detractors even amongst its ranks who has openly revealed the ritual and the teachings of the Order—From time-to-time this will always occur because of members who becomes disgruntled and/or dissatisfied in which written rituals, and lessons starts to show up in the public domain. This type information was distributed to potential Neophytes who desired to travel up the ladder (one can only attain degrees by demonstrating a high level of study and retention of information) may one day for whatever reason choose to expose what he has learned in secrecy and in confidentiality. The Orders teaches that the symbolism, signs, tokens, passwords, etc., all have to be established and held in the secret breast (meaning in the heart) of man/woman and never dispensed to those who have not traveled this same path. I am of the strong belief that any successful fraternity or sorority must have required reading materials that lay the foundation for moving the neophytes relative to degrees and transitioning them into the ancient mysteries. Their study and comprehension level must reflect a mastering of the intended lessons by showing forth suitable proficiency in order to justify moving on to the next level of study. I suggest to all my readers that you read and study Manly P. Hall (he was a 33rd Degree Freemason and a profound scholar) book titled, "Secret Teachings of All Ages" before this undertaking prepare yourself mentally and spiritually. Hall’s book is a necessary read, but I must inform you that it’s not a book to be read, but a book to be studied. It took me some years to get through the gamut of information that Hall lays out relative to the Mystical intent of all the ancient lessons.
The first lesson that was imparted, to me was "Man know Thyself" it took me years to grasp the meaning of this most important life lesson and it led me to the realization of the interconnectedness of the divine principles of truth. We often search outside ourselves looking for answers—these longings often lead us to organized religion and we began to embrace external concepts while our deep spiritual inner self suffers and our development do not reach its full potential. Our lives become cycles of incomplete energy and there is always a yearning to make ourselves whole. Our quest should be to find and embrace all divine laws and universal truths—and let this be our source and guide, and negate artificial schools of thought.
I must admit traveling certain spiritual paths can be a lonely journey and often isolation is one of those human variables that at times is difficult to grasp, perhaps because we fail to understand that there are different degrees/levels of consciousness and it’s this variable that often leads to disappointment. The Creator leads and guides whom he/she pleases and there is no mistake of whatever we are doing right now, it’s definitely what we are suppose to be doing and it has a purpose. People will be attracted to our LIGHT and we have a responsibility to be good stewards of the wisdom and knowledge that we have acquired by the permission of the Creator. One of my teachers was the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and he said my teachings can be summed up in six words "Accept your own and be yourself". And he also said of all the knowledge that one can acquire there is no knowledge more beneficial than the knowledge of self.
Thus, to be awake and conscious in this day and time is a blessing, which places us in a very good predicament and that is how we all should view our present space and time of where we are right now; regardless of how things are around us. I have always taken certain challenges upon my self of desiring to shake people up and say to them: 'do you see what I see?' But unless you come into the knowledge of self many of us will continue to wander in darkness; I have come to the assumption that many will remain as wanderers in darkness until something very drastic happens in their lives on a very personal level and, perhaps at that moment, it will start them to reevaluate things and come to the conclusion that a paradigm shift has taking place and this will force us to change our worldview. All of humanity has been systematically made blind, deaf, and dumb when it comes to understanding and decoding what’s around them, it is easy to lose optimism and become pessimistic about humanity’s future possibilities to overcome the duping and to become fully awaken appears to be bleak. It is difficult to anticipate their next move because it is like playing chess and one has to have the intuitiveness, natural instinct and insight to visualize their next move (those who have this ability are already eons above humanity’s present capacity)—the powerful Orders have already declared checkmate.
