First off... I am not anti-Mason. I am still officially a member of the OTO, a body which indeed uses much of the same symbolism as Freemasonry.
Crowley himself HAS INDEED stated basically that any member of the OTO is equal in degree to that of a Freemason. You might have to actually read
Crowley in depth to know that. The OTO might as well be called a much more raw version of Freemasonry. It gets to the point, rather than dancing
around polity for the sake of appealing to the masses.
Having said all of that.... having been rather deeply involved in esotercism and rituals.... I do now believe all of it to be in err.
The problem lies in this persistent worship of what they call "knowledge". The simple fact is that these types of groups, esoterically obvious or
not, encourage the accumulation and use of knowledge, and also encourage what they deceptively refer to as "self-discipline". Knowledge is power,
and we all know this to be true. Truly and genuinely good people can accumulate knowledge and hope to use it for good purposes. However, there are
personality types who would accumulate knowledge solely for the purpose of gaining power and influence over others. These types of people are referred
to as sociopathic/psychopathic.
Now... is it possible to create a sociopath/psychopath out of a formerly good person? Absolutely. It's called semi or false enlightenment.
If you've studied and actually LIVED the symbolism used in all forms of "mystery schools", you will know that there are some very very disturbing
facts of existence which are many times seemingly impossible to overcome or transcend. One might come to the conclusion that reality is meaningless
and that THEY THEMSELVES have become God. I once was victim to this horrific experience.... and for a time.... I had become borderline psychopathic.
Where were my fellow "brothers" in all of this? Nowhere to be found. I received no help or guidance from anyone who pretended to accept and honor me
in the rituals, initiations, and meetings of my Order. Same goes for Masonry, by the way. They don't stick around and help you during your struggle.
They blackball you and then blacklist you, and then cut you off from all further communication.
There IS INDEED a false god. That false god uses contrived geometry and intellectual tricks of the mind in order to fool you into believing that it is
the only true and living god.... but as convincing and damning as it may feel and seem, it is not true. There is the deceiver and its unholy trinity,
and then there is God and His Holy Trinity.
Look to the center of the magick circle in front of you. The deceiver wears many masks, but he is always the center of your attention.... the center
of your false and impermanent self..... tricking you into fearing death and mortality.... tricking you into contriving from tricks and ego-empowerment
a false immortality.
YOU are not God. YOU are not sole decider. YOUR WILL is always submissive ultimately to the Will of the True God.
As Eliphaz Levi once and probably quite unwitting stated "Freedom is Obedience to the Law."
The Law is not a refined and psychically empowered EGO.
The Law is to be, and to be with all your flaws, and even if you are only one amongst a sea of liars, to be true to your human nature. There is no
training involved. There is no group to join. There is no one to fear.
You are perfect without all the bullcrap. You do not need to be smart. You do not need to be influential.
You just need to be, and to know that God accepts you. God accepts Masons, even though they unknowingly bow to a false god, God accepts the false god
God is a champion of the downtrodden. He does not scorch the Earth.
God is humble. He does not do things because he claims to be all-knowing or all seeing.
God makes mistakes.
God must be forgiven by those who have rejected him, just as those who have rejected him must be forgiven by those who know the Truth.
That is what Jesus stated. Forgive everyone, even Evil Itself. Forgive them, for they know not what they do (although they believe very solidly that
they do, and that is understandable).
Masons... you are being misled. All esotericists, you are being misled. Whether it is Satanism o Luciferianism or Wicca or Masonry itself....
You are being misled. You cannot find God. God finds you when you need him the most..... when all desire is dead within you and you are utterly broken
beyond repair. God comes like Santa Claus at Christmas.
Which is why I now believe in Christ.
The god of Masonry is a God of Fear and punishment.... who only rewards those he can beat into submission.
"Beat him until he is willing" should be the Masonic motto.... because it is, in reality.
