Ancient EGYPTIAN ASTROLOGY focused on the 4 CARDINAL signs. Due to the precession of the EQUINOX 5,000 years ago, the 4 CARDINAL SIGNS are now the ones we recognize as the 4 FIXED SIGNS: TAURUS, SCORPIO, LEO and AQUARIUS.
All the other references to the 4 BEASTS were taken from the EGYPTIAN system. These 4 were the most significant to the EGYPTIANS, and as they were themselves a TAURUS-SCORPIO nation, that emphasis suited their system
To the EGYPTIAN masters, the 4 CARDINAL SIGNS represented the entire ZODIAC. These 4 signs were also called "4 WITNESSES". The QUR'AN refers to "4 WITNESSES" in the beginning verses of SURAH 24 (AL-NUWR: "THE LIGHT").
However, it is not the 4 MACROCOSMIC BEASTS in which we are interested, but rather the MICROCOSMIC ZODIACAL BEASTS which, in this case, stand for the 4 CHAKRAS that were the focus of the ancient masters' teachings:
The 7 MAJOR CHAKRAS are both conductors and transformers of cosmic energy throughout the body.
The solar energy itself ("SERPENTINE FIRE", called KHUNDALINI in HINDU, and RA in KEMETIC; both represented by the SNAKE) rests coiled in the lowest CHAKRA, the MULADHARA. It's located at the base of the SPINE and it concerns itself with survival and self-defense. When you are frightened or ready to battle, you may feel your sphincter muscle tighten.
The second CHAKRA (behind the genitals in the lower back) deals with sexuality and sensuality. It's called the SVADHISTHANA.
The third CHAKRA, the MANIPURA, is concerned with power and ego issues. It's located behind the SOLAR PLEXUS.
The fourth CHAKRA is at the heart. It's called the ANAHATA. It deals with love and compassion.
The fifth CHAKRA is at the throat. It's name is VISHUDDHA. It deals with creativity and devotion.
The sixth CHAKRA is the famous "3RD EYE" at the middle of the forehead. It deal with wisdom, self-realization, intuition, ESP, telepathy, psychic healing, connections with nature [SAM's NOTE: "rain, hail, snow and earthquakes"], etc. It's called the AJNA CHAKRA.
The seventh CHAKRA is at the crown of the forehead, the "HOLE OF BRAHMAN" or soft spot in a baby's head. It brings enlightenment and is called the THOUSAND PETAL LOTUS [SAM's NOTE: LOTUS FLOWERS had the x-act same meaning in KEMET as they did in INDIA.] It generates union with the ALL IN ALL. It's name is SAHASRARA.
The KHUNDALINI is like an individual's nuclear reactor. It is the inner fire, and the initiate must learn to rouse this sleeping power in order to achieve SAMADHI, or the SUPERCONSCIOUS STATE [SAM's NOTE: to all GOD-BODY, do the knowledge on the 5 STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS; like everything else in the LESSONS this is NOT to be taken lightly.]
The KHUNDALINI has many names. To the ANCIENT EGYPTIANS, ir was called RA. The QUR'AN calls this great power "AS-SALAAT". SALAAT literally means "FLAME". Those verses in the QUR'AN which are translated "establish prayer", or "set up regular prayer" are usually translated incorrectly. Literally, they read "raise up the SALAAT", or flaming fire.
Here is a translation of the first 3 verses of SURAH 2, "THE COW (TAURUS):
1. ALIF LA'AM MIM (I as GOD, know this):
2. That (not "THIS") is the Record [Author's note: The "record" being referred to here is the AKASHIC RECORD, not the QUR'AN itself). There is no doubt in it. It is a guidance for the GOD-conscious ones.
3. Those who believe in the OCCULT and raise up the SALAAT and from what WE (ALLAH) have provided them, they spend.
In chapter 4 of REVELATIONS (THE INJIYL) we read of the 4 BEASTS:
"The first BEAST was like a LION, and the second beast like a CALF, and the third BEAST had a face of a MAN, and the fourth BEAST was like a FLYING EAGLE."
Here again we have the four SIGNS: LEO, TAURUS, AQUARIUS and SCORPIO [SAM's NOTE: for those unaware, the EAGLE or HAWK corresponds to the SCORPIO sign in NATIVE AMERICAN astrology as well.]
Loosening the seals off the book refer to the opening of the 7 CHAKRAS.
[Author's note: the number 7 is also implicit in the name SHABAZZ, which is rooted in SA-BA, the ARABIC word for the number 7.]
From the SUPREME WISDOM (120 LESSONS):
"10. Why does MUHAMMAD and any MUSLIM murder the DEVIL?? What is the duty of each MUSLIM in regards to the 4 DEVILS?? What reward does a MUSLIM received by presenting the 4 DEVILS at one time??
ANS. Because he is one hundred per cent wicked and will not keep and obey the laws of ISLAM. His ways and actions are like a SNAKE of the grafted type. So MUHAMMAD learned that he could not reform the DEVILS, so they had to be murdered. All MUSLIMS will murder the DEVIL because they know he is a snake and also if he be allowed to live, he would sting someone else. Each MUSLIM is required to bring 4 DEVILS, and by bringing and presenting 4 at a time, his reward is a button to wear on the lapel of his coat, also a free transportation to the HOLY CITY OF MECCA, to see brother MUHAMMAD."
[SAM's NOTE: Refer to RZA's verse in GRAVEDIGGAZ's PIT OF SNAKES:
Become awake and chop the heads of these SNAKES/It's better off than dying in a pit full of SNAKES/The SNAKE inside yourself, that be the first head you take/It's better off than dying in a pit full of SNAKES........"It's clear, at least to me, that RZA has a greater understanding of 120.]
The 4 BEASTS are here called the "4 DEVILS". They are DEVILS because in our present condition, the energies enamating from those CHAKRAS are dangerous and destructive, and oppose our spiritual development instead of forwarding it.
In people who are unrighteous, the CHAKRA energy operates in a negative manner. For x-ample, instead of the HEART CHAKRA generating DIVINE LOVE, a "hardened heart" CHAKRA creates false pride and vanity.
The same 7 CHAKRAS which can take us to "HEAVEN", in a deformed state of consciousness, actually become the gateways to HELL:
42. As regards my servants, thou hast no authority over them x-cept such of the deviators as follow thee.
43. And surely HELL is the promised land for them all--
44. It has 7 gates. For each gate is an appointed portion of them.
So, to the HONORABLE ELIJAH MUHAMMAD, these unreformed CHAKRAS were "DEVILS" [SAM's NOTE: as I have mentioned in the past, the term "DEVIL" is a generic one, at least in ENGLISH. In ARABIC as well as other ancient ORIGINAL tongues, the term was divided into different variations: mainly PHYSICAL, MENTAL and SPIRITUAL. The fashion in which ELIJAH implies it here, is in the MENTAL/EMOTIONAL aspect. The same applies to the term "GOD".]
The sex gate or CHAKRA--in a "grafted devil"--generates LUST. THe heart CHAKRA generates arrogance and pride (ENVY). The throat CHAKRA generates an "appetite unchecked by knowledge" (GREED) and the pituitary CHAKRA will generate a lop-sided one-eyed robot-like intellect (HATE) that's called DAJJAL (one-eyed ANTI-CHRIST) from ISLAMIC writings.
When you see scientists using their knowledge to make nuclear bombs and chemicals which destroy the body and the harmony of the planet, you are witnessing DAJJAL consciousness in full effect mode.
Lust is considered "devilish" because it obstructs the initiate's attainment of AL-TAQWAA (GOD-realization, CHRIST CONSIOUSNESS, BUDDHA CONSCIOUSNESS, etc.). The KHUNDALINI depends upon the seminal fluid to act as a conductor in much the same way that a battery requires some water in it for the electricity to flow properly. Lust results in constant over-ejaculation, which results in the dissipation of prescious ZINC, needed by both the KHUNDALINI and for good eye-sight and healthy skin. The depletion of ZINC in men, for x-ample, can result in prostate cancer.
The devilish heart CHAKRA not only makes a person vain, but is also results in the hardening of the heart arteries. Heart disease in the number one killer in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA........We create our own reality.
The devilish throat CHAKRA makes us over eat, which compounds all the other problems.
In Nation of Islam esoteric symbolism, white, black, red and yellow "people" were symbols of states of mind. Very few people in the Nation, however, knew that most of the doctrine was given metaphorically and symbolically. The rank-and -file membership considers the teachings to be "actual facts."
If you choose to disagree with the methods for eliminating this slave mentality; then do you?

When you make an honest attempt at becoming well versed in the exoteric AND esoteric aspects of the Sunni, Shi'yah, Moorish Science, N.O.I. and the Sufis(and how they all relate); then come tell what the N.O.I. does regarding Islam.

This has to do with the info I provided regarding a 'Muslim Son'(9th degree of the Lessons). Think about it. Malcolm X could have been a Mason and still pointed out that Masons only get 120(33%) of 360. So basically the original man posseses 360 degrees, while the devil only gets 120. That's one way to interpret it anyway.
One more thing I don’t think that a person can be a Mason and be a true follower of Islam. Islam strictly forbids the worship of any being except Allah. Head’s of Lodges have tittles like “Most Worshipful Master” This goes against the teachings of Islam
Would this Paul Foster Case be one of the "Three Initaites"? Can you give a little background info on him?
