Humankind lives at the dawn of the manifestation of the Kingdom or the anchorage in a new dimension. Although the foremost events contributing to this magnificent achievement are hidden and invisible to the human eye, the group consciousness feels what is occurring on the inner planes.
Consequently, information about the Royal Lineage and the Grail is now available to the public, whether through books, articles, films or documentaries. Concomitantly, the Templars, being associated with the royal lineages, are coming back strongly as they try to recover a strategic position in the occult wheels of the planet.
Why the Templars? Because all the major modern occult groups who have secretly influenced politics and, therefore, history have issued from the Templar Order. But mostly, in their time, the Templars were the guardians of the Tradition and of the Bloodline. This signifies that, at a precise/specific time in human history, this group of souls was capable of being in resonance with the Divine Plan and translating it on the earth in the physical dimension. According to their capacity to comprehend, and within the limits of their personal evolution, they were utilized by the Infinite Consciousness as one of the links in the chain.
This does not mean that the actions of the Crusaders and of the Templars WERE the Plan. The Templars were, as most humans, limited in their comprehension of the Divine Purpose because of the epoch during which they lived and because of their own personal evolution. Their participation in the Plan is important but still is a HUMAN INTERPRETATION of the telepathic spiritual imprint received by these people.
The history of humankind is weaved by the instinctual reactions of individuals to the planetary energy of vital current. This vital force is impregnated by the vision of Infinite Consciousness, identified here as the Divine Plan. The Templars actions, as well as the actions of the Nazis, of the manipulator-Illuminati, or of anyone, are not and cannot be judged. EACH MOMENT IN PLANETARY HISTORY INSCRIBES ITSELF IN THE PERFECTION OF THE PLAN. The orders of chivalry and their descendants were/are the actors of the fall into the darkness and of the renewal toward the Light, for those who are and will be ready to make amends and to change.
The remains of the chivalric orders and the modern descendants of the medieval Templars naturally place themselves in a philosophy that is similar to the one taught by the Order during the Middle Age. The chivalric orders, under diverse denominations, are still active next to or inside the royal families. But the modern orders and the Freemasonry, even if they can prove a tangible filiation with the Templars, are absolutely not in harmony with the evolution of the Divine Purpose.
OCCULT USE OF MAGIC
During the Middle Age, even more than nowadays, the handling of occult forces as well as the practice of magic and ritual, were a part of daily life. Although of a Christian origin, the Knights Templar lived next to the Jewish and Islamic Initiates. They traveled and established commanderies in countries in which operative magic, Kabbalah and astrology, were taught. They collaborated with the Muslim Assassins from whom they learned alchemy and the occult arts.
” During the Crusades, tens of thousands of Europeans in the Holy Land became steeped in the very creeds they had marched to extirpate. The Sicilian court of the Hohen-stauffen Emperor Friedrich II became a veritable clearing house for Judaic and Islamic currents of thoughts. The Templars were another major conduit perhaps the major conduit – for such currents.” Temple and the Lodge, 136.
In all occult organizations, in all the temples, in all kingdoms, magic and the sacred were the basis of power and of the cult. In order to establish their power, the Atlanteans, the Egyptians, the Babylonians, the Hebrews, the Arabs, the Africans, all people have tried to appropriate for themselves the forces and prerogatives of nature, of Heaven and of Hell. The greed of princes and priests for the esoteric knowledge was and still is based on the search for universal power. They have avidly searched for communication with the invisible world that was supposed to bestow onto them the wisdom, the vision of the future, as well as the support of Heaven.
Officially, neither the Christians nor the Jews are supposed to be practicing divination or magic. “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter of a witch.” Deuteronomy 18, 10.
The belief in and human attachment to symbols and magical power artifacts is attested to by the story of the Spear of Destiny. One of the secret motives of Hitlers invasion into Austria was his insatiable desire to possess the Spear of Longinus, which is supposed to be the one that pierced the Christs flank. Let us bear in mind the messianic aspirations and the major role played by the German Holy Roman Emperor Otto III in the startup of the Crusades. We are not surprised to discover that his grandfather, Otto the Great, was in possession of the sword known as the Sword of Longinus, and that Otto III received it for his wedding. (Did he choose his wife according to the dowry?)
It is believed that “The Hofburg Spear received its first recorded mention in the ancient Saxon Chronicle at the Battle of Leck (near Augsbourg) where Otto gained a resounding victory over the Mongolian hordes. The spear was presented to Otto on the occasion of his marriage. The condition attached to the Spear as dowry was that the garrison towns of Europe should be turned into trading cities.” Spear,13.
This sword traveled from one King to another and is always linked to extraordinary victories. It is handed down as a sacred and magical object to the one that is believed to play a particular role in the politico-religious history, and probably in Gods Mind, as understood by human authorities.
Were the Carolingians unaware of the following text of the Old Testament?
“There shall not be found among you anyone that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer, For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord.” Deuteronomy 18, 10.
Moses himself utilized magical practices to confront the Pharaoh and to drive his people out of Egypt. The only change brought by Christendom has been the consolidation of hypocrisy and dissimulation. In the twenty-first century, the high executives of the initiatic and secret societies, as well as those in politics and business, frequently use magic. When the members of a secret order do not feel powerful enough to perform their magical rituals and get the desired results by themselves, specialists are recruited and paid.
The kings of antiquity and, more specifically, the kings that are a part of the Divine Bloodline, held the double function of priest and king. As such, they were the intermediaries between the Divine and the human realms. For a long period of time, the sovereign, because of his blood and DNA, innately had the capacity to communicate with the inner planes. His main function was to anchor and to embody the Divine Plan. Also, he was guiding and protecting his people with the wisdom illustrated by the glorious Solomon, whether he was a real or a symbolic figure. At the start of human history, the first kings were the direct descendants of the Creators. Their filiation, as well as their proximity in time to their divine parents, allowed them to keep themselves naturally linked (religare) with Heaven. But with time and with the progressive fall into matter, the Priest-Kings, the Children of the Dragon and of the Archangels, have slowly fell into a state of spiritual amnesia and degradation.
They first had recourse to subterfuges, to magical practices, in order to reconnect with the Divine. Little by little, they have completely sunk into matter and into darkness, and have become unable to connect themselves with the High Planes. Their level of consciousness (= the capacity to remember their Divinity and their capacity to live it in matter), their rituals and their incantations did not allow them anymore to rejoin the superior spiritual planes. They could only reach the astral plane inhabited with powerful entities, yet far from the refined vibrations of the divine planes. The Priest-Kings sank into an obscene mating with demonic entities. Their actions, their religious practices, were a reflection of their level of consciousness as well as of the invisible planes and the entities with which the Kings were communicating. This is the reason why the Priest-Kings, while sensing the divine call as shown by many refined aspects of their cultures, have still practiced the barbarian law of the blood, coupled with human sacrifices, and a lack of respect for the innocence of the children.
MAGIC – DEFINITIONS
Magic is an intervention in the order of the world. It is not necessary to utilize candles and wax figurines in order to practice magic. We all do it as soon as we consciously use our volitive faculty to intervene in anothers life or to change the nature of things. It is enough, if one is capable, to just emit a THOUGHT. Fortunately, very few individuals have the capacity to manifest at will; our world would only be a little more chaotic than it is already!
An Adept ceases to practice magic when he/she has completely let go, has no more desires, and is fully abandoned to his Divine Self. In such conditions, the Divine Self being an aspect of the Whole, the Adept becomes a channel of the Plan and a conduit for Perfection.
There are three relational levels with the universe – three levels of the Sacred:
•The level of primary magic: The being has noticed the existence of material, animistic forces and constrains them in order to fulfill a desire or a physical or emotional need: I want rain or I want the neighbors wife, therefore I do a ritual in order to attract clouds or the lady of my thoughts. To increase my personal power, I use plants, objects; if necessary, I will constrain entities or souls that will serve me and give me their power.
•The level of pure thought: I want rain, I think rain. I do not rely on anything or anyone but on my capacity to broadcast the right thoughtform; I do it in such a way that I do manifest the object of my covetousness.
•I have understood that I am a part of the Whole, about which I know and respect the Sovereign Will. I know that I am loved by the Universal Soul, therefore understood, nurtured and cherished. Consequently, I live in trust and innocence and receive the gifts and blessings of the universe at each instant and in all aspects of my life.
In the same way, the alchemist buckles down to his work in a physical laboratory and practices chemistry. But he will only be capable of transmuting matter when he himself is transmuted.
The ritual of the Catholic Mass and the transubstantiation (or the wish to accomplish it) are magical acts. It is interesting to notice that the Catholic religion, that forbids magic and divination in a strict manner, is founded on a ritual in which the wine and the bread are supposed to be respectively transformed into blood and flesh.
The Judaic law prohibits occult practices. However, the families and clans owned figures, called Teraphims, which were consulted as oracles. The Bible mentions the existence of the Teraphims in the house of King David. The scriptures also state use of the Thummin was set aside for the Chief Priest. The exact nature of the Thummin is not known, but it is said that these objects were interrogated by the Chief Priest so as to make decisions under divine guidance. Closer in history, the cabbalists write the names of or invoke spiritual and demonic powers; they manipulate the divine names, the sephirots of the Tree of Life and the Hebrew language, in order to fabricate talismans and to anchor their will.
THE TEMPLARS IN JERUSALEM
The Crusades lasted two centuries and have definitely changed the course of European history. The role and visible power of the Roman Catholic popes was re-enforced while the population was submitted to an intense intellectual and religious manipulation. But in secret, deep modifications of the creed and of the faith of the Christians were initiated. The contacts and exchanges that occurred with the mystics from the Islamic and Judaic faiths have nourished the need to a return to the esoterical Tradition, and reintroduced the occult sciences in the European culture.
In a very precise context, the religious authorities skillfully organized the population and the knights enthusiastic marches, proudly exhibiting the identifying cross on their chests. Sylvester II accessed the papacy in 999, at the dawn of the millennium. The birthday of the Christ was close as well as the anniversary of the fall of Jerusalem. Was the pope affected by the millennialist ideas of the moment or was he looking for specific information about Jerusalem and about the actors of its past? He made contact with the Caliph and organized in 1001 an expedition of Chronicler-monks in Syria and Palestine:
“Al-Hakim greeted the popes entourage with honor and spent many weeks in Jerusalem discussing with them the virtues of Islam versus Christianity. He was so impressed by their sincerity that the caliph gave them, in September 1002, the use of the Byzantine Greek church on the outskirts of Jerusalem for their chapter house and library. Unfortunately, Al-Maqquari (historian of the 13th century) does not name the entourage or the location of their order, merely that they were there as chroniclers or historians. By the time of the First Crusade, they were established in a Greek Basilica on Mount Zion, with the name of the Order of Our Lady of Mount Zion” Cross, 129.
NOTE: “Literally, millennialism refers to the belief, expressed in the book of Revelation, that Christ will establish a one-thousand year reign of the saints on earth before the Last Judgment. More broadly defined, millennialists expect a time of supernatural peace and abundance here on earth.” Richard Landes (MILLENNIALISM ,MILLENARIANISM, CHILIASM) Draft of article for the Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of World Religions, 1999.)
Between 970 and 1020 C.E., a series of masterpieces was produced by one of the most influential schools of painting in Europe. The artist workshop was housed in the Benedictine Abbey of Reichenau and located on an island at the center of Lake Constance. Under the responsibility of the Benedictine monks and commissioned by the then-current Emperor, Kings and Bishops, the artist-monks copied liturgical manuscripts, on/over golden leafs with ornate, precious illuminations.
One of the most important pieces of this series is the Bamberg Apocalypse, which is said to have been ordered by the Emperor Otto III. It reproduces the text of the Apocalypse. This masterpiece includes fifty-seven large format miniatures on gilded ground and over one hundred golden initials. The Emperor died before the completion of the codex and his successor, Henri II, donated it in 1020 to the Collegiate Abbey of Saint Stephan at Bamberg.
The text of the Apocalypse announces the emergence of a monarch who represents the Christ on earth: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.” Apocalypse 19, 11.
The monarch participates in the establishment of the New Jerusalem which, according to Saint John, will be built after the Last Judgment:
“And I saw a great white throne and him that sat on itAnd I saw a new heaven and a new earth And I, John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husbandAnd he that sat on the throne said, Behold I make all things new. And he said unto me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.” Apocalypse 21, 2-6.
In fact, the adviser to the German imperial family, Sylvester, probably dreamt of installing such a monarch in Jerusalem as an answer to the prophecies of the Apocalypse. Also, assisted by the Chronicler-monks, Sylvester had most likely compiled a genealogy allowing him to consider Otto III as the divine heir to the Throne of the Christ. Keep in mind that Otto is the one who was gifted with the Spear of Longinus at his wedding.
Sylvester II did not see the completion of his projects. The pious and idealistic emperor died at the age of 21 in 1002, while his genius adviser expired on May 12, 1003. It is whispered that both fatalities were suspicious.
A series of popes succeeded Sylvester II. Once more, Jerusalem falls to the hands of the Turkish infidels in 1071. In 1088 Urbain II takes on the papacy. Supported by the majority of European kings, he focuses on the reunification of the Eastern and Western churches, divided since the Great Schism of 1054. In the Middle East, the Emperor Alexius I Comnenus (reign1081-1118) confronts the Turks who take back Jerusalem and then march toward Constantinople. In 1095, at the occasion of the Council of Placienta, Alexius proposes the union of the Eastern and Western nations and churches in order to fight against the Muslim hordes. Urbain II uses this opportunity to secure his power and harness at his will the warrior energy of the knights.
On November 27th,1095, Pope Urbain II, after convincing the kings in power, harangued the people and the knights, asking them to conquer Palestine so as to free it, as well as the Holy Sepulchre and the Christians, from the Muslim yoke. This call triggered the First Crusade that started in 1096.
The fist wave, lead by Peter the Hermit, gathered an anarchic crowd of 20,000 volunteers without any military education or leadership. After having sacked the Jewish communities on their way, they succumbed to the hands of the Turks.
Then an army followed, organized in sections, commanded by:
•Godfrey de Bouillon, Duke of Lower Lorraine, and his brother Baldwin
•Bohemond, Norman Prince of Taranto, Italy, and his nephew Tancred
•Raymond, Count de Toulouse and Saint Gilles
•Duke Robert of Normandie, son of William the Conqueror, plus Robert of Flanders and Stephen of Blois, Williams son-in-law
•Hugh, Count of Vermandois
The sudden death of several characters who contributed to the setting into action of the Crusades, the recurring presence of specific monastic orders concomitantly with the intervention of particular royal lineages, are enough clues pointing at the existence of a global plan, secretly conceived and imposed. This plan would include the access and control of the Holy City, and the initiation of a millennium of peace under the ruling of a specific bloodline.
It is true that some of the Crusaders were moved deeply by religious motivations or at least by the belief in the redemption of sins, which was promised as a reward to their sacrifice. But, as time went by, the Crusades became the weapon of the ruling powers, whether political or religious.
“The Crusade, the most potent weapon in the papacys formidable arsenal, increasingly emerged as an instrument to be applied as and when popes saw fit, and against whomsoever and wherever its use was appropriate. Crusading had become an elaborate and complex business, the business of the cross as it was described at the time.” Oxford, 42.
But, beyond all plans for territorial conquests or political plot, the deepest and most powerful motivation, the one that either lifts or corrodes the human soul, is the feeling of divine power and the desire to align oneself with the sacred.
Enthused by their thirst for power and their erroneous interpretation of the spiritual message, the Templars or/and those who supported them – kings, nobilities, popes, assaulted the Middle East. In their minds, it was necessary to conquer and rule in and from the physical city of Jerusalem. The First Crusade ended with the conquest of the Holy City in July 1099. (Note: One can also find a more dramatic version: Friday, June 15th, midday, time of the Crucifixion). Godfrey of Bouillon, one of the leaders, refused the crown but was elected Advocate of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Less than one year later, his brother was crowned under the title of Baldwin I of Jerusalem.
“The most important of these events was the political conjunction between East and West begun by Pope Sylvester II, the new Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, and the mad Caliph Al Hakim one hundreds years before the first crusade was announced. It was a vast plan conceived and carried out by a group of secret societies for the purpose of creating a world-state in the Holy Land and thereby bringing the chiliast millennium of peace.” Cross, 122.
It is said that the Crusaders took hold of the Spear of Destiny, the one that later fascinated and motivated Hitler. Is this the same one that Hitler borrowed in Austria? But the Templars treasure was another kind. One of the accusations against the Templars had to do with the possession of a magical object, the Baphomet, that they revered and consulted. MORE in
