Within my quest for the truth, I began studying the major religions of the world, both modern and ancient. What I began to get was that there was a simple truth underlying all these systems, were just been called the ancient wisdom teachings. I discovered that there was an esoteric and an exoteric meaning to all or any religious paths. Esoteric hails from the Greek word, eso meaning “within” – that that will be hidden, unseen, secret, inner – or out-of-sight. In the Bible – that will be reality a guide of the hidden wisdom, the Master Jesus spoke of mysteries reserved for disciples which he did not provide public. His public teachings, the parables, were meant to bring a new dispensation to humanity’s understanding of a loving father, rather than a vengeful deity. Modern Mystery School
Exoteric Arises from the Greek root exo meaning outside. Popular religious teachings which are shown 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 own faith tradition that gave me renewed faith, renewed hope, and a new understanding of the conflicting messages that organized religion had presented over 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 genuinely 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 were given a negative rap. They were given labels such as witchcraft and “of the devil “.Anything that did not adhere to the organization line of the Catholic Church was feared, hated, and ultimately killed. When it wasn’t in the Bible, it wasn’t true. The issue 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 offer most of humanity.
A lie told a thousand times is believed more compared to truth told once.
However the ancient, or ageless wisdom teachings give a meaning and an intention alive they explain a far more cosmic understanding of the fantastic energy we call God that contain references to your ancestors “from the stars” that makes sense of the mythology of religions. And they provide us hope for future years, that there is indeed a plan and an intention that inspires the happenings of the times. The mystery school tradition teaches us about how everytime humanity is ready, a good one or avatar, concerns 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 which are ready for more of The Truth as one Age shifts into the next 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 fantastic amount of rediscovery. Today, the mystery schools are returning out into the open, available to all or any who’re questing for the truth. One particular school was my 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 aspect of the divine, integrating the divine masculine that will be out-pictured throughout the Piscean age, with the incoming divine feminine of the Aquarian age.
Sophia leads us to a greater understanding of the wisdom that heals duality. Sophia doesn’t threaten. she just withdraws once we do not accept her. Inner knowing, that will be her way, is subtle and fragile, but has such power that after she makes herself known we feel her correctness and strength.
Once the student is ready, the teacher appears…
