The term Illuminati has been co-opted by nefarious individuals and organizations.
And the Shard Theory is right on the mark.
"Illuminati" - from the Latin illuminatur
meaning "enlightened" was a term used to bring folks together who possessed unique knowledge and
abilities under a common banner.
This word did not have the modern trappings and associations that our modern age places on the word enlightened
at which it's utterance most
people assume the Louts Position or arrogantly talk haughtily about how they " know it all, maaaaaaaan" while sitting on their butts complaining about
the current System and Structure without getting out and doing anything constructive with their self-proclaimed "insights".
No, for the truly Enlightened Illuminati - there is much work, sometimes requiring actual effort, blood, sweat, tears and self-sacrifice. In my
personal case, I have a somewhat lenient vow of poverty in order to make sure than any monetary rewards I may receive as the result of my works go
toward the less fortunate so that they may simply be able to live. I also help with educational efforts and grants, but when it comes to my won
rewards from this work - I don't even own a car or many of the modern trappings of Modern Life. So it goes. Priorities are more important and I have
a roof over my head, food and internet access.....so the modern incarnation of portraying the Illuminati as a bunch of glitzed out people surrounded
by unbearable personal wealth and frivolous opulence is a bit of a misnomer.
But hey - it's my Shard Path and I'm cool with it most of the time.
So it goes.
It's not the only path available out there.
The original goal of the Bavarian Illuminati was to bring great minds together and work towards a higher goal for the betterment of all who were
oppressed during the times....from the Sciences and the Arts, to the individual becoming more adept at enhancing their innate talents in service of
not only themselves, but their fellow human beings.
Somewhere along the road, some members became arrogant and formed off-shoots that didn't associate with other members in council. Human folly and the
arrogant self-serving interest took over in those persons, and in some case, developments came to pass that - at the time of transition - were very
unbecoming and traumatic for others not in the group.
Progress and far reaching Cultural Advancement takes time and patience.
if we look at recorded human history we will notice there are always period of great conflict and Darkness that give rise to a resurgence of Light and
forward moving innovations. It is a definitive and observable pattern. The Dark Ages and the Enlightenment Era are a great example of this. Get
used to fluxes and flows, cycles or Dark and Light, and remain steadfastly peaceful in yourself that all of these things are a natural part of the
Social Evolutionary Process.
With the advent of the internet and mass real-time communications, we have entered into a Global Dynamic where upon we can discuss matters of import
with others all across the globe and break through cultural stereotypes and propaganda. We are currently sitting in the middle of a Great Transition
- one of the most amazing ones to date, and if my theory is correct, the New World Order will be one whereby ALL persons contributing ideas and
conscious forward moving dynamics have voice and those with the power to effect change will blend into a harmonious inter-relation of community.
You ask how you can join Illuminati?
Be yourself, learn the ins and outs of your Personal Duality and study the Higher Graces and Valuable Contributions of the Ancient and Modern
Don't focus on dystopian negativity - for that leads to dark ends and discontent if it's the only path you focus on. Balance is important to
achieving Wisdom and Understanding.
Find the beauty in Music, the Arts, Cultures and Historical Dynamics.
Embrace your personal education by finding things that are worth preserving in the World.
Everyone will have their own manifestation of what they deem preferable, and do not be ashamed by your choices, but also do not neglect to seek out
parallels in the works outside of your own ideologies in order to truly understand the Human Brotherhood and the wonderful Mysteries that infuse the
world around us in a myriad of manifestations and expressions.
When you find your Higher Calling and Higher Mind and a way to use those gifts towards the betterment of others, you will be a positivist force of
change around you. But first - you must find your Peace and Acceptance of matters you cannot change.
Always look for solutions and innovations.
And one last thing - be cautious and wary of Those who would seek to undermine your positive efforts for their own nefarious agendas. If you have a
project you're working on and seek counsel - be aware that if you reveal too much information, there will inevitably be someone else who will try to
make your idea and product their own and have it on the market before you've even finished the outline of your work. It's a harsh truth, but there
are many Opportunists out there and they have no qualms whatsoever about running off with someone else's hard work. It's happened to me more times
than I can count.
Most importantly, be true to yourself
Do not remain in the company of any group or organization that does not hold true and vigilantly your core ideals. Do not stay involved in
associations that try to demean your natural gifts and most importantly, be wary of subversive and subtle influence that tries to lead you down dark
roads with foolish promises of glory and financial reward for what seems like minimal effort.
Be true, stand tall, be resolved and vigilant, and continue to shine bright.
It's hard work, but if you do it intelligently, it's very rewarding.
