What I just said you may not understand(unless you're a Shriner Mason.
Tamahu, I read something interesting about the shriners today.
According to Anton Lavey in his book the Satanic Rituals-
the Shriners have a ritual similar to a satanic ritual called "The Ceremony of the Stiflin Air" . Lavey says that this rite was originally performed "when entering the sixth degree of the Order of the Knights Templar".
The original Templars' rite of the Fifth degree symbolically guided the candidate through the Devil's pass in the mountains separating the East from the West. At the fork of the trail the candidate would make an important decision: either to retain his present identity, or strike out on the left hane path to Shambalah, where he might dwell is Satan's houshold, having rejected the foibles and hypocrisies of the everday world.
A striking parallel to this rite is enacted within the mosques of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, an order reserved for thirty-second degree Masons. The nobles have gracefully removed themselves from any implication of heresy by referring to the place beyond the Devil's pass as the domain where they might "worship at the Shrine of Islam ".
Once the celbrant has taken this degree, he embarks upon the Left Hand Path and chooses Hell in place of Heaven.
I have one question. If Masons, Satanist and Newagers believe in reincarnation then how is one supposed to reincarnate if one is busy roasting in hell?
