Rites and Symbols of Initiation

The Hierophant is the masculine counterpart to the High Priestess,

known as the Pope in other Tarot decks he is ruled by Taurus.

The Hierophant is seated on a throne between two pillars

symbolizing law and liberty or obedience and disobedience.

He wears a Trinity Crown, and the Keys to Heaven are at his feet.

Hierophant or Iærophántis

A hierophant guides the initiate to behold

Mystery as revealed by the Lumière Infinie.

A true Iærophántis can never be a priest.

"Ptolemy called upon an Egyptian and a Greek jointly to design ritual, including Mysteries of Isis, for the new cult.

The Eygptian was Manetho, known to us as an historian of Eygpt who wrote in Greek for Greeks.

The Greek, Timotheos of Athens, was a ritualist by birth, since the noble clan to which he belonged, that of Eumolpidai, superintended the Mysteries at Eleusis." - Sterling Dow2

Branches of Mystery Schools all sprang from the same Philosophical Trunk of the Living Oak Tree growing from the Heart of Earth.

Each branch of the Living Oak pierces the Veil of Cognitive Blindness with a slightly different color of Prismatic Light of the Noumenon.

Initiates, resplendent in divine spiritual understanding, became the intellectual fruit bearing witness of the Source of all Light and Truth.

The Crux of all the Mystery Schools is that if a man does not become Enlightened during his sojourn on Earth he will be destined to continue wandering throughout Eternity or be lined up on the floor of Hades where they restlessly sleep through all Eternity as they slept through Life.

To become Enlightened means to be freed of the Earthly desire of Possession.

A man, gazing into the Mirror of Nature, that fails to accept the fact that the vehicle that carries him is truly senseless clay, loses the opportunity afforded by material life to unfold his immortal, invisible Self.

The Eternal Soul, a Living Spirit, animates flesh.

People not ruled by their Eternal Soul, but by the Dead Matter Clay of Flesh, remain eternally dissatisfied.

A Mystic carries two torches, reason and intuition.

A Mystic ascends from the darkness of entombment to the Lumière Infinie to be eternally freed from the frozen crystallized thought patterns.

Initiation into discipleship lasts for 9 days, 1 day = 1 month in the womb.

Each day the Eternal Soul descends a level until Final Day when descension is complete and the Eternal Soul is reborn within flesh into Gaia.

Initiates pass through the Gate of Descension to enter a passage steeply angled downward and on into a labyrinth of dark dank rooms symbolizing man's birth into ignorance.

9 days of operant conditioning ensue.

On the last day the initiate enters a passage leading gently upward into a brightly glowing pulsating room symbolizing man's Awakening.

Initiates are reborn the 9th day as they walk out through the Gate of Ascension which is symbolic of leaving the womb.

The Creator and Sustainer, being a luminous principle, residing in the midst of the most subtle fire, remains forever invisible to those who do not elevate themselves above a Dead Matter Life.

The initiation ceremony will be closed with the Sanskrit words "adeep vitarka" (Emanating Light of Creator and Sustainer's Discernment)

The Mysteries teach an individual how to live.

The Mysteries teach an individual how to pass beyond with dignity.

To undertand nature the disciple embarks on a nine year course of training.

initiation ritual

The purpose of an initiation ritual is to create a body wide physiological response which changes the texture of consciousness by eliminating analytic and rational thought patterns from consciousness for a short period of time thus allowing for a worldview reboot.
There are several methods in which to create a a body wide physiological response.

Every King of the Levant had to go through an initiation ritual that included the use of Anointing Oil.

A successful initiation ritual will result in a rejuvenation of the Eternal Soul and a totally new outlook on life.

This is a common human occurence around which one of humanities seven narrative themes - rebirth - revolves around.

unique library index

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
