I'm probably jumping head first in to hot water here but I'll try... (sigh)
Here goes... you see everbody... the Illuminati is not evil.
Yup I said it.
Illuminati is a blanket term for a huge variety of groups that teach illumination or enlightenment. This includes (but is not limited to):
Freemasonry, Gnosticism, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, Hermeticism and (just for the fun of it) discordianism.
The common teaching of all these schools is that through a graded level of teachings taught to an initiate by an adept one can hope to explore and
discover the mysteries inherent in one's true self and their intrinsic connection to the universe. Ultimately these traditions teach a school of pure
responsibility, understanding and love.
Also, these traditions are not secret because they are evil or subversive but rather because it's impossible to step half way up the ladder without
understanding how you got there. For instance, I could tell you, right now one of the profound secrets of human experience and you might be able to
intellectualize it but without the experience and guidance to back it up you wouldn't truly understand it or feel it in your heart.
Individuals in these traditions surrender their being to such teachings through a deep, passionate love for the universe and humankind.
I'll happily field any mature questions to expand on this if you wish.
In the meantime, I wish you all well and bid you a beautiful journey.
