The essential aim of the sacred Wisdom Teachings is to raise the consciousness of mankind; to uplift people into a higher vibrational level, through spiritual illumination and the other great initiations, so that they will eventually enter Cosmic, Prophetic, and Spiritual Consciousness.
At this point they will become Masters of Life, men and women who are in control of their lives and their destiny (the physical body as well as the celestial). These become the teachers and scribes of the Living God, who are capable of reaching downwards and lifting those around them as well.
Can this cosmic spiritual cycle continue into our Age and Era of Life? The ultimate goal for all humanity; all members of mankind is to eventually become enlightened…
I believe this Age of World Illumination is approaching, for great changes are taking place upon many. This is not something unique to a specific culture or race; it is a movement that crosses all cultural or political borders. This is not something that is expressly bound to any specific world religion! This movement is awakening a greater requirement within the bosom of man; it is explicitly connected to the inner-heart and soul.
For the first time in human history, man is beginning to explore his inner-self in ways not possible a few decades ago. Our minds are developing at an extremely fast pace, our knowledge, comprehension, and understanding in this most recent generation, has surpassed the total evolutionary stages of all previous generations.
We are exploding with potential!!!
The possibilities are absolutely endless.
Our technologies are becoming outdated by the minute, as science is taking human intuition, imagination, and creativity beyond all bounds.
As the human mind leaves behind the prehistoric atomic age, it enters into super levels of consciousness that can open doors within the Heavenly Realms of Quantum Physics and Quantum Mechanics that supersede the ancient prophetic realms of our ancestors. The hidden Realms of the Living God have never been this close…
Let us venture back in time to view the evolution of the consciousness of mankind and see how it has progressed.
In the beginning, our world seemed so vast that we could not even fathom it, or its actual parameters. In those primitive times, we hardly comprehended anything beyond the next horizon. Our thinking process was likewise limited, for we knew very little of our own world, nor of our own origin.
In the early stages of humanity, our concepts of many things around us were limited, because our minds were not yet advanced or evolved enough to conceive or comprehend them. But this developed with time, as we gradually expanded our thinking processes and awareness as we simply yearned to know more. Thus, the “inner being” was awakening.
It inwardly developed the human vehicle, slowly but surely. The God within had to prepare the human temple for eventual full residence, but the evolution of this process would take many thousands of years.
Eventually, explorers discovered what lie beyond the immediate horizon, and even further, for voyagers ventured across the seas and oceans, discovering other lands, so our field of awareness expanded. Likewise, philosophers and teachers arrived, who broadened our mental and spiritual horizons of this world and levels beyond.
This gradual progression in learning of our planet Earth and beyond is symbolic of the expanding awareness and consciousness of mankind on all levels; mentally, spiritually, and physically alike. Throughout time, as we learn more, and become more receptive, and desire to know more, our intelligence increases; even our creativity develops. This is natural human evolution.
Several centuries ago, many people believed the Earth was flat, for the idea of a round world was new at the time, except for a few philosophers who knew better. About four centuries ago, most people believed the Earth was the center of the universe, and this idea was intertwined into church doctrine.
Because of this, many progressive scientists or philosophers were severely persecuted, some executed for their heresies.
Soon, as astronomy advanced, mankind had no choice but to accept the new truth that the Earth was merely one of several planets that circled the sun, the true center of our immediate universe, or solar system in this case. The idea of our local galaxy, the Milky Way, or the innumerable galaxies that make up the whole universe was still unknown in those early days, if not incomprehensible.
With continual advancements of the telescope as technology developed, we begin to see further into space, observing that there is much outside of our small solar system, and even beyond the billions and billions of stars in our Milky Way galaxy, that there are countless galaxies beyond this.
Our awareness of the vast universe has increased beyond what we would have ever dreamed one hundred years ago, not to mention four hundred years. We can be especially thankful for the Hubble telescope for revealing to us countless beautiful wonders of our vast universe.
We may not as yet be able to travel to the stars, but our imagination has taken leaps and bounds through the medium of science fiction in accomplishing this, perhaps paving the way for preparing us for such travel, an idea unfathomable a few centuries ago.
Global exploration subsided in the last centuries and gave way to space exploration, the new frontier. Another example of the expansion of mankind’s consciousness is demonstrated in the astronauts orbiting of the Earth and landings on the Moon.
Whereas before we had a vague idea as to what our planet accurately looked like, now we have a very clear view of it from space and from the surface of the Moon, and film footage and photography to demonstrate this for all to see.
This progression is very symbolic of our spiritual unfolding, and development, from the standpoint of how we come to experience our true inner-selves; not as we think we are, but as we truly are, as we look into new depths into the within. Just as the astronauts revealed to the rest of mankind what Earth truly looks like, so do the teachers of truth show us how to look within and see the reality of our own soul, and inner-self.
This realization of the God-being that is within us, is one of the higher levels of the Esoteric Initiations, and likewise one of the primary aspects of Ancient Wisdom Teachings.
These Esoteric Teachings encompass both the Lesser and Greater Mysteries; however, the “Lessor” is more prevalent within known and acceptable doctrine because it is much easier to communicate, and is more digestible for the human intellect.
The “Greater” Mysteries must be intuited and realized within your own being.
The seeds are in the Lesser Teachings, which will sprout forth, grow and blossom into the Greater as one’s consciousness expands. One leads to the other. One is the door, the other is that which lies beyond the door.
But if you merely stop at the door and go no further, there will be very little inner development and unfoldment. Unfortunately, certain religious dogmas prevent people from taking the next step.
The very concept of Greater and Lesser Mysteries are symbolic references in order that the finite human mind may more easily comprehend the Teachings. The Lesser Mysteries are aspects of a vehicle that shrouds the inner teachings of truth in mystery, allegory and parabolic symbolism.
But the actual Greater Mysteries refers to the penetration of the deeper Divine Wisdom that only intuition realizes, beyond all symbolic forms and comprehensive ideas.
For the real truth is a matter of experiential spirituality, not merely intellectual comprehension.
Only through the well-developed intuition, realization, and mystical experience can we witness the real Divine Wisdom. On such a Mystical Path as this, many have reached this higher realm of realizing the Truth. For this reason, the Ancient Wisdom Teachings can never be suppressed.
Truth will always demonstrate itself throughout time and through many mystic sages, prophets, teachers and traditions.
But we need to know where to look!
And we need to know “HOW” to look.
We can read great spiritual literature, and there are many fascinating writings from many cultures recorded throughout humankind’s development. But when we reach the point that we want to attain the True Wisdom, which comes from the source of all Life; God himself, that teaching and learning process must come from within the living fountain of your own spirit and soul; here is the real source of Truth.
This can be achieved through continued disciplines and practices, for when you learn to listen within through meditation, you will penetrate an inner knowing of truth, which is called the Divine Wisdom. This inner gnosis is the true source of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings.
Countless written teachings in the esoteric fields or other philosophies have been virtually lost, mostly due to persecution. Great literature and libraries have been destroyed or burned in past ages, and this is truly unfortunate.
However, if all the ancient scrolls or manuscripts and sacred scriptures, and all the important books on spiritual and esoteric teachings and the great sciences in the world had been completely lost or destroyed, many people might panic and grieve the great loss; but ultimately, it simply would not matter.
Because as long as we have The Living Holy Spirit of God amidst us, and the Initiates and Teachers who can tap into this true Divine Wisdom, we shall always have the True Teachings.
For the Truth is One! New books will be written and given to the world.
If you yourself conducted the discipline of spiritual meditation, study, and intuitive exploration on a regular basis, enabling yourself to instinctively connect to God’s Wisdom within, void of your own opinions and personal investments of course, you will be able to write many pages of genuine wisdom. Disciplined meditation and contemplation will reap such positive results from any true spiritual practitioner.
This portal to truth is not reserved for only the elite or highly evolved souls, as many would think. Anyone who has applied a regular and sincere practice of prayer, study, and spiritual meditation, by centering and tuning into the God within the heart, will also receive this wisdom.
There are many mystery schools and traditions, as those that exist within our Molokan Faith and Culture, and are capable of teaching many aspects of the Ancient Wisdom Teachings, Spirituality, and the Power of Prophecy, but the greatest gift a Teacher can offer to his student, is the ability of receiving this Wisdom internally.
Internal Spiritual Illumination, Vision, and Sight are the tools that are needed to access the gift of the true Wisdom of God. Illumination leads to Wisdom, not the reverse.
You cannot reach Wisdom or Illumination by the limited human mind. You must transcend this, and seek and find the Light, which leads to the God-Self within. The Prophetic gifts will help you receive Illumination and Wisdom and Unity; another word for describing the personal relationship with our Creator.
There are many paths, but only one way to Truth, and that is through God, reached through that place within the heart; for God and Truth are one and the same.
May your journey in the discovery of Divine Wisdom within, be enlightening, adventurous, exciting and fulfilling!
