The Main Reason Masons and the Church Disagree

 

In the Gnostic work Treatise Resurrection, ordinary human existence is described as spiritual death whereas the resurrection is the moment of enlightenment and reveals what truly exists. Whoever grasps this idea becomes spiritually alive and can be resurrected from the dead immediately.

The Gospel of Philip says those who say they will die first and then rise are in error, they must receive the resurrection while they live, which is in agreement of what Jesus taught.

This is in direct conflict with the church that believes, only those who have had direct access to Christ, or their representatives have direct access to resurrection, all others must go through them.

Most Gnostics view Jesus, not as a God, but as the man who illuminated the pathway.

Whoever sees the Lord through inner vision can claim his or her own authority equals or surpasses that of the apostles and their successors.

In other words, they don’t need an intermediary to communicate with God.

The concept of gnosis (knowledge) is the exact opposite of the Church’s concept of faith, and it is the type of thought process that fits well with masonry,

The Mystery of the Pyramids

 

Many legends and much speculation in Egyptian mythology surround the pyramids and why they were built, as well as to how they were built. They have been described as being burial tombs for the pharaohs and Egyptian Gods, giant observatories, ceremonial sites where many ancient rituals were performed, and many other functions. Although it is my understanding that no one has ever been found buried in a pyramid, all of the other functions seem to make sense. The giant pyramid, or pyramid of Cheops(Khufu), is perfectly aligned with the four cardinal points of the earth, following and extending one line along the base, it would pass through Bethlehem, another line would extend through Stonehenge in England. Various points line up perfectly with different constellations that were of importance to the ancient Egyptians.

Much has been written trying to explain how they were built, using pulleys, ramps, and thousands of workman to construct them, not much of it makes sense. Built on the highest ground for miles, it’s hard to visualize how ramps could have been built, also, there would still be evidence of the ramps. In an extremely arid climate, structures and the evidence of structures last for thousands of years. The tremendous manpower needed to build the edifices would have been staggering, how do you move a stone, some of which weigh 40 tons and are as large as a train locomotive up a ramp three hundred feet high?

Probably the most logical explanation as to how they were built, when they were built, and by whom is also the most illogical. Many legends persist that they were built by either extraterrestrials or refugees from Atlantis, who escaped to Egypt when their land sank beneath the sea some twelve thousand years ago. Theoretically, either could be true. There is much evidence that planet earth has been visited many times by life forms from beyond our galaxy and there is also evidence of a land existing in the Atlantic  Ocean before our present era.

How were they built, only time will tell.

Spiritual Knowledge

 

Spiritual Knowledge

As my travel through life continues it becomes more and more evident to me that we need to merge the spiritual knowledge of our ancestors with the technical knowledge we have today.

In years and ages gone by, our ancestors, as well as the ancient civilizations, knew way more of their spiritual connection to the source than we do today. The Australian Aborigines had, and many still do, a connection with the land and creation that is unparalleled in today’s world. They instinctively knew when the rains would come, where to find food in a sparse environment and had a knowledge of nature that is astonishing.

How Do Extraterrestrials Travel To Other Planets?

 

You often hear different opinions on the popular TV show”Ancient Aliens”, and many other sources about how extraterrestrials are able to travel large distances and appear on foreign planets.

Most often the theory involves somehow genetically engineering the human body to enable it to go long periods of time traveling through space without aging or even dying in the process.

While this is possible and may even be the way some accomplish the feat, it isn’t the most practical, or the method used by most ETs.

The most common method used is teleportation.

Through teleportation, the soul is able to think where it wants to go, then it transforms it’s body to the new environment and forms a new body by accumulating the elements from the host planet.

It is then able to acquire everything it needs in order to survive in the new environment.

If someone traveled to another planet that was hostile to their native body, they would not survive very long regardless of the precautions they took.

Only by assimilating the elements they needed from their new environment would they have the necessary physical body to survive.

Although the popular method of traveling to other star systems could and probably does work for many, the easiest, best and most logical method is through teleportation.

The Flight to Oz

 

Written By: Gary Wonning

The next month would be quite an adventure, and I was looking forward to it. This was all very exciting. After a five hour layover, one more flight and we would reach our first destination, Cairns, Queensland.

I discovered that wearing the ring in Australia had become easier for me, it very seldom fell off my finger and I wore it almost constantly. I began to think I would be able to wear it permanently when I returned home because I sensed my energies were changing.

I normally have an excellent sense of direction, so as our flight departed for Cairns, I became concerned. I had the distinct feeling we were headed south, the wrong direction. Did I get on the wrong flight?

Asking my seatmate, he reaffirmed we were indeed headed for Brisbane, our next stop, it eased my mind some, but why do I sense we are going south when we are actually going north? This problem continued all the while I was down under, after a while, I determined it must have something to do with the magnetic poles. Just as the water in a bathtub circulates in a different direction than in the northern hemisphere, so it must be with my sense of direction.

An interesting side note, the flight to Cairns was grossly overbooked, as a result, and unaware to those of us going on to Cairns, we were put on a second plane to Brisbane, occupying the same seats we would have on the flight from Brisbane to Cairns.

My seat mate had mentioned we were flying to Brisbane, but that comment never sank in until we began our descent into Brisbane. I looked around to some of my travel companions seated behind me, they also had a quizzical look on their faces, it was supposed to be a direct flight to Cairns.

Totally confused, we were escorted to the very next gate at the Brisbane airport, boarded the aircraft and sat in the exact same seats we had on the previous plane. This is way too much thinking for me, after crossing 15 time zones and having had little sleep, I don’t want to deal with it, Just get me to my room.

A Spiritual Encounter In the Out Back:This is What I Came For

Written By: Gary Wonning

July 7th, This was to be our last day in the outback of Australia, I was beginning to feel as though I didn’t want to go back to the states, this felt like home to me.

Our final stop of the day before traveling to the Alligator River campground to camp for the night was to be at Jabiru, a new uranium mining town in Kakadu National Park.

The Australian government is trying to correct some of the mistakes that we Americans created in dealing with our American Indians.

 

The Australian government has decided that when any minerals are found on Aboriginal Land, the wealth is shared with the native peoples. The city of Jabiru is one such instance of this policy being put into effect.

It is a very modern city with beautiful parks and lakes.

After having lunch at one of the many outdoor restaurants, we were looking forward to an afternoon off, spending it swimming in a large lake nearby. It would have been a welcome relief after spending six grueling days traveling the outback of Australia.

It was about this time that Mark, our driver suggested that if we wanted to see one more sacred Aboriginal Site, he would be willing to drive us.

Many things began racing through my mind, we had visited many ancient sites in the last month and I really didn’t want to see any more, you see one, you’ve seen them all.

The swimming sounded really refreshing, but what the heck, I could go swimming at home next week if I wanted, this was my last day in The Land of Oz, I wanted to enjoy it to the max. I knew deep down that this was going to be a very special afternoon. Being in the outback for almost a month, I was unaware of the date, July 7th, 1989, I was about to discover would be a highlight in my search for truth, and the reason I came to Australia. (Hilda had reminded me of this months ago, but it had slipped my mind.)

Besides that, everyone knows that all the rivers in Australia are filled with crocodiles and after swimming in those uranium infested waters I would probably glow like a porch light all night.

With that in mind, nine of us boarded the bus for the bumpy, dusty forty miles of dirt road that lay ahead. Sitting near the back of the bus I had plenty of time to contemplate what lay ahead and what it would all mean to me. As we bounced along the dusty road occasionally crossing crocodile infested creeks and rivers it seemed as though I was going back in time, to a time long forgotten, a time remembered only in the Aboriginal Dreamtime. I was a little awed at what was going on around me, I could sense and see the other people on the bus, but it was as though I wasn’t really a part of their reality and they perhaps weren’t part of mine.

The dust from the road filtered into the bus and a red layer settled on everyone and everything. At times when passing another vehicle, yes there were others out here, it became so dusty in the bus that we could barely see the driver. At these times it seemed as though we were passing into another dimension.

It was at this time that I felt as if I was actually alone with no one else sharing my experience. I could actually feel my body become lighter and lighter, at the same time becoming less aware of the surroundings around me, becoming acutely aware of the sacred lands we were passing through, and the warning not to enter without permission of the tribal elders.

My thoughts were interrupted by a sudden jerk and a screeching of brakes, the bus was coming to a stop, we had reached our destination, Ubirr Rock, the home of Lightning Man, a very powerful figure from the Aboriginal Dreamtime.
