Neither; The freemasons were originally structured to help preserve the information hidden from the church. They passed on the secrets in teachings and allegories so that the common man who wished to do legitimate good and well being in the world; could empower himself to do so. The Vatican did not like this which took away their hold from the people. Once the common man found out he was the source of his own divinity and spirituality he would not need the middle man of the Church; and they would be ruined and unable to control us. Only those truly willing and wishing to learn would.
As time went on, and people we think of as the 'bad guys' started to get into the organizations and abuse the teachings for their own benefit. This effectively keeps us away from being able to empower ourselves; and lets them abuse them against us. The 'secrecy' which was instilled to keep them alive from the prosecution of the church; wound up backfiring. As time went on and the teachings became needed to pull the world back from despair, the secrecy hurt them.
Couple this with why they demonize freemasonry to such a high degree, and other societies in general, the dissuading of studying the occult, which is the hidden forces of the macrocosm that control the visible forces of the microcosm. Then study how fluoride effects the pineal and shuts it down, how they reject creativity in school, demand right-hand, left brainers, and ostracize metaphysical research...It's almost as if someone doesn't want us to know about this.edit on 31-8-2012 by VeritasAequitas because: (no reason given)
Veritas, thank you for posting this thread. I've enjoyed your posts for a while, having avidly devoured your readily available knowledge in the "occult", as according to its literal definition, and your avatar invokes the same emotion in me that many Christians find in looking at the cross. I wish we lived closer together, I'd love to learn from you in these matters.
On the subject of the three doorways, I'd like to add that the Holy Trinity originates from the three sacred realms of the human being - Jesus/Body, Holy Spirit/Soul, and Father/Mind. When all three are in balance, that is when we are able to step forward to grasp our legacy.
I believe we are gods - but somehow, someway, either we or some higher being has determined that up until this time, we were not ready for such power. Ugh, I hate the term "god". Too much baggage. Anyway, we are spiritual beings who have yet to master the consequences of thought and emotion. Hence, our purpose here. But we are rebellious teenagers, just coming into adulthood, and soon, we will have to make that choice.
This resonates with something that I've been saying for a while. The Christian trinity was just a corruption or an allegory if you will, for The Great Architectural Mind (God), The Bodily Vessel (Jesus), and the Immortal Soul, (Holy Spirit. The body, mind, and soul/spirit has been a dominating concept for a good deal of time.
Just because some people don't want to embrace the gnostic side, doesn't mean it didn't happen.
Now refer back to the diagram of the Swastika and Cross.
The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix. The swastika literally means "to be good". Or another translation can be made: "swa" is "higher self", "asti" meaning "being", and "ka" as a suffix, so the translation can be interpreted as "being with higher self".
...the word later evolved to represent eternity and Buddhism.
The symbol has a long history in Europe reaching back to antiquity. In modern times, following a brief surge of popularity as a good luck symbol in Western culture,
José Manuel Erbez says: The first time the swastika was used with an "Aryan" meaning was on December 25, 1907, when the self-named Order of the New Templars, a secret society founded by [Adolf Joseph] Lanz von Liebenfels, hoisted at Werfenstein Castle (Austria) a yellow flag with a swastika and four fleurs-de-lys.
