Hello all, may Peace be upon you.

I've been a devout adherent of Christianity and Islam at different periods. I've been studying Philosophy, New Age beliefs, and inner revelations and realizations a lot recently.

I believe there is a bond that connects us all. Call it God, or Creator, or One, or Universe, or Source, or Matrix, or Chi, or Self. I've called this Force many things, and it has always reacted and interacted with me in the same way.

I want to take my first guided steps into the esoteric... the mystery schools.
I have an open mind. I do not wish to be a programable robot. But I highly enjoy the teacher and student relationship... the Master and the Apprentice relationship.

I want to join a secret society to learn. I want to learn how to strengthen my understandings. I want to learn to decipher the secrets hidden in plain sight. I want to dig deeper into human history than academia allows. I want to learn symbolism and meaning found in religion, philosophy, and history that are not taught to the masses. I want to grow stronger on my path of mastering myself.


My desires and expectations... is there any secret society or mystery school I should look in to?
Or is this a path I must travel alone?

Hey man! I've been trying for YEARS to get into my town's masonic club, but they won't let me in. Granted I kind of ruined my chances by stalking them.

But I do have some excellent punch recipes, that I'm more than willing to share with you once you get your little society started. So far I've got All-Seeing Strawberry, Limes-D-Sees, and I've been working on a great new mixture with the working title "New Swirled Orderberry".

Let me know, I'll send you a sample of each.

- That's 11 thumbs down.

I'm with 12Voltz on this one....

Step 1 Start your own 'secret society'
Step 2 Do NOT tell anyone about it......

Voila - your own secret society.........

Sorry, couldn't resist it !!!!

Being serious for a second I think if these things really do exsist then your best becoming a 'specialist' in something and I'm sure they will find you..

All the secrets are available for those who know where and how to look. Therefore I personally recommend not joining any "schools", for it will inevitable condition you into their dogma.

Take a look for Jiddu Krishnamurti for example. He was supposed to be the "world teacher" according to Theosophical Society, Annie Besant and Leadbeater. In his autobiography Krishnamurti states that all these schools are vain, and in fact harmful. For instance, he himself was born in Brahmic family that was highly religious. During that time he experienced visions of Krishna and other deities, which according to him, was indoctrinated into his mind. Then the Theosophical Society stepped in and adopted Krishnamurti with the permission of his parents. During the time with TS, Krishnamurti experienced visions according to theosophical dogma. So he concluded that these visions were not truthful, but based on the indoctrination posed by various relgions.

A christian will have experiences with God, Jesus or Satan, Hindu will encounter the particular deities of Hinduism in their visions. Muslims will encounter Allah or the Prophet. Satanist might encounter his demons or Himself.

The point of the story is, that all these visions are depending on the indoctrination which one has been conditioned. And the reason is that all these visions are nothing but archetypal numinous messenger from the psyche of human being. They are contents of your unconsciousness, dressed in clothes of your conscious condition.

But if you want to join those, I wouldn't object. You must do as you feel the urge. This was just my opinion, and my advice - I wish not disencourage you in your endeavours. All I can say that the most important thing is to be vigil, whatever creed you may take, so you can objectively valuate the experiences you might have. And remember, it is said that: "Pupil is spoiled by the master, and the master is spoiled by the pupil."

In spiritual things, no-one is master. This is because we all have unique composition, both mind and body.

Take care.

To be fair though, although it was not exactly what the TS described or the same world teacher the had envisioned, Jiddu Krishnamurti did become a world teacher.

Peace

You can all join mine if you like.
Membership benefits include.
1) A monthly secret newsletter written in invisible ink and printed on super secret invisible paper
2) An invisible membership card
3) An invisible $1000000 bill
4) Instructions on how to perform the secret handshake
5) Lots of cool secret rituals and secrets about aliens that I just made up now

Membership is $1000 a year for men or free for women if they are willing to become my wifeletts and feed me cornflakes from a jewel encrusted bowl

Seriously from what I can gather the best way to become a member of a masonic type society is to hold down a very boring steady well paid job for a long while and socialise with others that do the same.
Try becoming a dentist or a lawyer or a doctor and they will be breaking down your door

If you are male, over 18 (21 in some jurisdictions), believe in God (your own definition) and don't have a criminal record you are eligible to join Freemasonry.

Find your local lodge in the phone book and give them a call.

A caveat though: Freemasonry doesn't necessarily provide 'answers' to those questions, but it does offer a great set of tools for an individual to find the answers.

Also, Freemasonry isn't necessarily a 'secret' society. We have 'little' secrets like handshakes and passwords, but the Big Secret is something that can't be given to another. It is the personal transformation of a man's character as he searches inward for answers to the questions of life, the universe and meaning.

Although I am not familiar with many other schools or societies' beliefs, it does sound like many of them do the same thing. They provide the tools for you to find the answers.

There is one secret society that is so secret that it does not even have a name. The members don't even know they are in it. Meetings are so secret that there may have never been one.

Also it has been said that when the student is ready the teacher will appear.

It sounds like you are ready to learn.

This is one of the best places to read about many of the things you talked about:

Sacred Texts Archive

Thanks for the Peace.

Where have you studied these topics? As someone else said, if you did that kind of studying you should know where to go. I would try your local Elks lodge or Knights of Colombus to get started.

Yes he did - at least he tried to teach.. I don't know how many eventually put his teachings in practice.

He conveyed an important message nonetheless.
