Fiery Thoughts ...

El Morya:


Infinity II, 1930 Infinity II, 62. When in antiquity purgatory and fiery hell were spoken of, certainly transmutation and karma were meant. When the laws were established, their meaning was known. Exactitude of knowledge was expressed in manifestation by the Cosmic Magnet. The knowledge of karma was asserted by the luminaries. Purgatory was put in the place of karmic striving. Purgatory in its present understanding was inherited from the law of transmutation. The fiery hell followed as the law manifested by karma. Karma and transmutation are inseparable! One principle predetermines the other, and the tension of the one evokes the striving of the other. Creativeness of great attraction constructs all cosmic principles. Only striving directed to the manifestation of Fire can yield the formula of reality. Humanity in its heedlessness denies this reciprocal law. Verily, karma and transmutation outline the evolution of the spirit. Space resounds with these laws, and only the law of the Cosmic Magnet directs the striving toward evolution. A sensitive ear will catch these harmonies.

Infinity II, 138. A great life is confirmed by the manifestation of the Cosmic Magnet. Three planes are manifested to humanity for the affirmation of all principles. Indeed, it is easy for the spirit to strive upon the higher planes, but the earthly, the lowest pole, is established as the place of decision. Only there where Light and darkness battle can the spirit manifest a free choice. Imbued by the emanations of the energies, the spirit can establish itself through the expression of its striving. Only when immersed in the earthly sphere can one manifest the subtlety of striving into higher spheres. Cosmic creativeness requires entirety of manifestation. Thus, the spirit composed of all cosmic energies must pass through all cosmic steps. Verily, man must pass through purgatory; otherwise, the spirit cannot attain the predestined world, which comprises all spheres.

Fiery World III, 1935 Fiery World III, 69. It is right to think about the purging of dogmas which lead away from a just thinking. The concepts of purgatory and hell may be replaced by the concept of affirmation of the life of the Fiery World. There is no mightier purgatory than earthly life, if all the potentialities of the spirit are intensified. Likewise there is no mightier hell than the earthly infections of the spirit. To affirm purgatory on Earth as a beginning leading to the Subtle and Fiery Worlds is a problem of the purification of consciousness. All strivings of humanity for knowledge of the Invisible World should impel the consciousness to take up the thought of purification, which will continue the earthly path to the Fiery World. Only the concept of oneness of the path will impel people to live in beauty, and to depart this life as wayfarers continuing their journey. When the World will apprehend this indissoluble bond with the Subtle World, purgatory will then take its rightful place in Eternal Truth. Therefore it is so important to become affirmed in the realization of the endlessness of life; the continuing, as it were, of the great Wheel of Life. The manifestation of the accumulation of the "chalice" gives great power to the spirit in the Fiery World; just as the path of darkness imposes its own dark existence. Let us direct thoughts of people to the idea of purgatory on Earth.

Whirling dervishes in Yenikapi Mevlevihanesi, Istanbul. (Photo: Ihsan Gercelman/

The Quiet Comeback of Istanbul's Hidden Sufi Lodges-10/12 Atlas Obscura, by Joshua Allen -- The banned dervish halls are scattered through the city. -- The whirling of the Mevlevi dervishes is one of Turkey's most iconic images, popularized in films and tourist ads for decades. Naturally, these ads do not mention that it has been illegal to perform this ritual for almost 100 years. In fact the Mevlevis are just one of a dozen Islamic orders—called tarikat in Turkish—whose activities are still banned in Turkey. Luckily for tourists and Turks, selective application of the law means that we can still watch the Mevlevis' whirling ceremony inside state-owned museums. But for every lodge that has been turned into a cultural center or museum, there are hundreds that lurk neglected and crumbling in the backstreets. According to historian Faruk Göncüoglu, the number of Istanbul's lodges reached around 700 in the Ottoman era. Each of the orders that lived in these buildings had different rituals and professions: the Mevlevis were musicians and artists, the Bektasis were soldiers, and the Naksibendi were scientists, for example. Aside from the whirling dervishes, European travellers in the 19th century were spectators to the Rifaiyye “howling dervishes”, who practiced flagellation and piercing with needles. But Mustafa Kemal Atatürk's vision of a republic based on European positivism had no place for mystical orders. The outbreak of a southeastern rebellion led by Naksibendi leader Sheikh Said gave the government a reason to act, and in 1925 all Sufi lodges and Ottoman tombs were closed by law. It also became illegal to use the titles of “sheikh”, “dervish”, “emir”, and “caliph”, to wear clothing associated with those titles, and more bizarrely to call oneself a coffee reader, sorcerer, or exorcist. The first cracks in this extreme secularism came with the defeat of Atatürk's party in the 1950 elections, and the Ottoman tombs were reopened to the public that year—with no change to the ban on Islamic lodges. Istanbul's first lodge was founded next to Rumeli Hisari, the fortress that Sultan Mehmed I built in preparation for the conquest of 1453. Now on the grounds of Bogaziçi University, the lodge was rebuilt as a historical research center in 2015. The Galata Mevlevihanesi, a two-minute walk from the Galata Tower, dates to 1481 and reopened as a museum in 2011. While the building is beautifully restored, the waxworks of cross-legged Sufis have all the mystical power of a natural history museum. Visitors are invited to watch the whirling ceremony every Sunday—as has been the case since the 19th century, with travelers such as Gustave Flaubert and Hans Christian Andersen writing their accounts of the dervishes. ...

The Monks Who Spent Years Turning Themselves into Mummies—While Alive-10/7 Atlas Obscura, by Davey Young -- Japan's self-sacrificing sokushinbutsu were a very determined lot. -- The Japanese climate is not exactly conducive to mummification. There are no peat bogs, no arid deserts, and no alpine peaks perennially encased in ice. The summers are hot and humid. Yet somehow a group of Buddhist monks from the Shingon sect discovered a way to mummify themselves through rigorous ascetic training in the shadow of a particularly sacred peak in the mountainous northern prefecture of Yamagata. Between 1081 and 1903, at least 17 monks managed to mummify themselves. The number may well be higher, however, as it is likely some mummies were never recovered from the alpine tombs. These monks undertook such a practice in emulation of a ninth-century monk named Kukai, known posthumously as Kobo Daishi, who founded the esoteric Shingon school of Buddhism in 806. In the 11th century a hagiography of Kukai appeared claiming that, upon his death in 835, the monk did not die at all, but crawled into his tomb and entered nyujo, a state of meditation so profound that it induces suspended animation. According to this hagiography, Kukai plans to emerge in approximately 5.67 million years to usher a predetermined number of souls into nirvana. The first recorded attempt at becoming a sokushinbutsu, or “a Buddha in this very body,” through the act of self-mummification took place in the late 11th century. In 1081, a man named Shojin attempted to follow Kukai into nyujo by burying himself alive. He, too, was hoping to come back in a far distant future for the good of mankind, but when Shojin’s disciples went to retrieve his body, rot had set in. It would take nearly two more centuries of trial and error before someone figured out how to mummify himself and, they believed, cheat death to enter a state of eternal meditation.

The process of self-mummification is long and arduous, taking at minimum three years of preparation before death. Central to this preparation is a diet called mokujikigyo, literally “tree-eating training.” This diet can be traced through Shugendo to the Taoist practice of abstention from cultivated grains. For a thousand days, the mokujikigyo diet limits practitioners to only what can be foraged on the mountain, namely nuts, buds, and roots from trees. Some sources also report that berries may have entered the diet, as well as tree bark and pine needles. Time not spent foraging for food was passed in meditation on the mountain. ...

Invitation for comments and suggestions re my planned next book-10/13 Graham Hancock, I’ve decided to devote my next big non-fiction book to the mysteries of ancient America. After my research trip across the channelled scablands of the Pacific Northwest with Randall Carlson, reported in my 2015 book Magicians of the Gods, I became intrigued by the possibility that a HUGE part of the human story, and of the prehistory of civilization, may have been lost to archaeology in the cataclysms that struck North America at the end of the last Ice Age between 12,800 and 11,600 years ago. This is the terrifying and deeply troubling episode that geologists refer to as “The Younger Dryas”. And whereas in my previous work on earth’s lost civilisation I have concentrated on just about every other part of the world and largely ignored North America, in this new book I shall concentrate almost exclusively on North America. I’m increasingly open to the possibility that it IS the missing link we’ve all been looking for. New science on the peopling of the Americas has turned the old paradigm — the so-called Clovis model — upside down and made it redundant. We must now consider the possibility of stable and advanced civilizations in the Americas going back 60,000 years or more and with mysterious links to the populations that settled Australia and other far-flung regions in remote prehistory. I am NOT particularly interested in the possibility of later connections between historical Old World cultures and the New World (e.g. Phoenicians, Romans, Ancient Egyptians, etc, etc). Of course this happened. But it has already been well-covered by other researchers and I’m not sure I would have anything new to add to (what should be) such relatively uncontroversial subjects. My interest rather is in the deep PRE-HISTORY of North America BEFORE the Younger Dryas cataclysms of 12,800 to 11,600 years ago. ...

The Truth About The Freemasons-9/29 by Richard Allan Wagner
Hopefully you have come to this essay because you’re truly interested in the history and meaning of Freemasonry. If, however, you’re looking for another Masonic conspiracy theory, you’ve come to the wrong place. TRUE, this article is uniquely different from all of the rest… but I must warn you that it reveals truths and facts about Freemasonry that most Masons simply do not know. In fact, the information contained here is radically different from everything average, garden variety Masons are taught or understand. How can that be?
Well, let’s just say that the VAST MAJORITY of Masons are extremely (and blissfully) ignorant of their “Masonic Heritage”. You see, most Masons are in the “Fraternity” for the purpose of belonging to a “Good Ol Boys Social Club”, which is perfectly fine, but that’s basically it. Now understand, I’m not here to put Freemasonry down, after all, I’m a Mason. Actually, I’d like nothing more than to see Freemasonry receive a much needed jolt to its lethargic and virtually dormant mindset so as to awaken it from its current slumber. Also understand that just reading all of the books and online articles about Freemasonry will NEVER deliver a thorough understanding of it.
IF YOU’RE NOT A MASON, I guarantee you cannot possibly understand what it’s all about—YOU HAVE TO BE ONE IN ORDER TO GET THE COMPLETE PICTURE. However, if you’re not a Mason this essay will still provide crucial insight into the True meaning of Freemasonry. Having said all that, let’s get to it…
because what you’re about to learn (whether you’re a Mason or not) is THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF SPECULATIVE FREEMASONRY.
How and Where Did It All Begin?
Ask any Mason the above question and he’ll likely tell you that (in accordance with “Masonic tradition”) it all began (a) with the building of King Solomon’s Temple, and (b) Masonic knowledge was somehow transmitted over a vast time to take root in the “operative” stone masons guilds of medieval Europe—culminating in the founding of the English Grand Lodge of “Free and Accepted Masons” in 1717. Some Masons will even go so far as to allude to extremely vague words, names and phrases from the Old Testament in a vain attempt to legitimize the claims of “Masonic tradition”. The problem with “Masonic tradition”, however, is that it rests on supposition rather than historical fact—starting with the mythical story of Hiram Abiff who, according to Masonic tradition, was the “Grand Master” architect who oversaw the construction of King Solomon’s temple. Of course there’s no historical, archeological or even biblical evidence to support the Hiramic myth. And yet, this myth is the centerpiece for the traditional view of the origin of Freemasonry and its fundamental meaning. Freemasonry has always referred (unofficially) to various ancient esoteric schools of thought as the foundation of its philosophical tenets. Among these are Egyptian Hermeticism, the Pythagorean-Orphic mystery schools, and the Jewish Kabbalistic tradition. But none of them make any mention of Hiram Abiff. Furthermore, the “Regius poem”, AKA the “Halliwell Manuscript” (circa 1390) is understood to be the oldest genuine record of the “Masonic Craft” known to exist. Yet it says absolutely nothing of Hiram Abiff or the building of King Solomon’s temple.The glaring lack of evidence to support the existence of the Hiramic myth by the early fifteenth century is only too obvious. Clearly, the story of Hiram as the founder of Freemasonry hadn’t yet been conceived—who invented him, and why? Enter Francis Bacon Over the centuries, the personal details of the lives of many great historical figures have been obscured, distorted or deliberately swept under the carpet. Such is the case with Francis Bacon. As extraordinary as it may seem, there is an avalanche of hard, tangible evidence that supports the following:
(a) Francis Bacon was a secret son of Queen Elizabeth I—which made him an heir to the Tudor throne, and
(b) he was the genius behind the creation of the collective works ascribed to the literary name “William Shakespeare”, and
(c) he was the creator of modern “Speculative Freemasonry” along with the Hiramic myth.
I realize that, for many people, this information may seem like a bizarre pill to swallow. For those who are not already familiar with these facts, see the specific details and hard evidence set forth in my book The LOST SECRET of William Shakespeare @

The Rosicrucian Movement and its Impact on Bacon and Freemasonry
Some eighty three years prior to the writing of the Regius Poem (which basically provided a constitutional outline for early Masonic philosophy and principles) the medieval Order of the Knights Templar had been viciously attacked and torn asunder by the Catholic Church. The surviving members of the Order scattered throughout Europe seeking refuge in secret underground enclaves. The Church had declared an all-out war against all progressive scientific and philosophical thinking deemed to deviate in the slightest degree from Catholic dogma—the great inquisition had arrived. Those who were accused of, or believed to be harboring heretical beliefs were condemned to be burned alive at the stake. As a result, most of Europe’s leading minds became members of a loosely knit secret society generically known as the “Invisible College” or the “Great Society”—but in truth it was the precursor of what would become the Rose Croix or Rosi Cross Order (the Rosicrucians). Ironically, this secret underground movement, which made great advances in the arts and the sciences, was unwittingly sponsored by rich patrons of the Church—indeed by the Church itself—all under the guise of producing religious art. The underground “Rosicrucian Movement” became the exact cause of the Italian Renaissance. Great Renaissance masters such as Da Vinci and Michelangelo took special delight in secretly thumbing their noses at the Church by hiding heretical esoteric messages in their work. The flow of esoteric thinking that bridged the latter part of the sixteenth century into the seventeenth century brought about the intellectual explosion of the English Renaissance, which spawned revolutionary innovations in literature, science and social philosophy, with Francis Bacon as its supreme architect. He would fuse the Rosicrucian and Masonic esoteric traditions together, raising them to a new synthesis of knowledge and understanding that hadn’t been seen before. In the late 1500’s, Dr. John Dee was widely recognized as the preeminent authority on all esoteric knowledge. Additionally, he served as one of Queen Elizabeth’s chief spies. Furthermore, as a mentor to the prodigious young Francis Bacon, Dee’s influence was immense. By his early teens, Bacon, with his stellar mind, had far surpassed everything England’s leading educators and scholars could possibly throw at him. For the world, Bacon was already an intellectual force to be reckoned with. Dee’s guidance helped to shape what the French would refer to as “the jeweled mind”. ...

Why we are still in thrall to the occult and the supernatural-10/13 The Telegraph (UK), by Tim Martin-- Spells, curses, Tarot cards and priapic Bronze Age stickmen – Tim Martin takes a whirlwind tour of the occult -- For much of the past two millennia this snazzy picture book would have been a powerful volume to own, and a dangerous one. Carrying it under your arm would have given you a tough time in ancient Rome, where the Lex Cornelia of 82BC issued dire warnings to anyone found with books of magic: “He will lose his property, the books will be publicly burnt, and he will be deported to an island. Persons of lower social status will be executed.” Centuries later, you might still have been imprisoned between 1736 and 1945 in England for suggesting that the supernatural symbols and demonic incantations between its covers gave you magical power. Today, the images in Christopher Dell’s handsomely assembled hardback are just curiosities. But flickers of their old potency remain. Magic has always been about control: over the environment, over other humans, over knowledge, over fate, over the self. As the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski suggested, it “ritualises man’s optimism” and it is particularly prominent at times when control of the environment is weak. The artists who engraved the priapic stick figures in the Tanum petroglyphs from Bronze Age Scandinavia were attempting to rig the cosmic odds in human favour; so were the Mesopotamian seers who inscribed divinatory formulas on sheeps’ livers modelled in clay. Magic has always been best-guess technology for evading the inevitable or supercharging the mundane. ...

A Seer In New York-10/13 Spirit Daily, It’s quaint, in its simplicity, the picture an alleged seer, Edson Glauber, of Itaparinga, Brazil, drew during a recent swing through the New York-New Jersey area and posted on Facebook: the Blessed Mother, as he apparently sees her, staving off evil. Glauber, who experienced apparitions along, with his earthly mother, in the 1990s, received initial written approbation from his bishop for apparitions between 1994 and 1998, but we have not seen an official discernment for subsequent ones, which, it seems, occur frequently, not only in Brazil (there along the Amazon) but in Italy, where Glauber travels frequently. If the swing through the U.S. is an example, his apparitions-visions-locutions are daily, replete with messages. Are they real? That’s a question yet to be discerned. A correspondent in New Jersey who attended a number of Glauber’s apparitions informs us that the picture represents Edson’s vision of Our Lady’s “protection for America to prevent a coming great evil” (based on his apparitions while he was in New York and New Jersey from August 31 to September 29, 2016). For your discernment. ...
He also had a vision on September 14 of the Sacred Heart at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan. Overall, the messages included Mary’s call again (relentlessly) for conversion, her lamenting over how few have answered that call, and her blessings upon the faithful and their families. The alleged message that accompanied the picture:
Peace my beloved children, peace! My children, I your Mother come from heaven with my Son Jesus and St Joseph to bless your families and all humanity. Here, in this Church, we leave a little of our presence and our love for you all. Do not forget my maternal words. For a long time I have been calling you to conversion, but so many of my children do not listen to me and do not want to convert. May you, my children, pray and convert, because time is passing and many are losing the graces that heaven is granting to you in these difficult times. The devil wants the ruin of your souls. Cast out the devil far away from you, praying my rosary. Be obedient to the call that God is making to you. Pray more and more in churches, and prayer will transform the lives of your brothers [sisters] and will convert them.
“Believe, my children, prayer does great miracles. Prayer changes the fate of the world and attracts God’s mercy. I love you and with my Divine Son and St Joseph I bless your families. On the feast of St Michael, St Gabriel and St Raphael I invite you to ask for their intercession for you and for the world. These Holy Archangels will help you to do the Will of God and will defend you against all harm and danger. I grant you, tonight, special graces by order of my Son Jesus. Take the love of our Sacred Hearts to all your brothers [and sisters] and thus the power of darkness will be defeated and destroyed. Return to your homes with God’s peace. I bless you all: in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!”

FROM MESOPATAMIA TO MESOMERICA: HUNTING FOR HISTORY IN THE BOOK OF MORMON-8/29 By Andrew Gough; Few outside the Mormon religion take the Book of Mormon seriously these days. By ‘Book of Mormon’ I mean the sacred texts of the Latter-Day Saint (LDS) movement that chronicle the lost history of the Americas from approximately 3000 BCE to AD 421. Today, indifference for Mormonism has been replaced by mockery, thanks to the musical The Book of Mormon, written by the creators of the popular television series, South Park. The show opened on Broadway in 2011, winning countless awards and becoming the fastest-selling Broadway-cast album in iTunes history. However, what if there were more to the Book of Mormon than the disparaging musical would lead you to believe? What if its peculiar story provided insight into some of the most confounding conundrums in history? Romancing the Seer Stones Any examination of the Book of Mormon must commence with Joseph Smith, the ‘modern-day’ author of the work, whose alleged rapport with an angelic being led to his discovery and translation of a series of gold tablets, which had been hidden in a stone box and concealed within a sacred hill in New York State for over a thousand years. Joseph Smith (1805–1844) was known as the ‘Great American Prophet’, a grandiose but deserved title, given that he founded Mormonism, which launched the Latter-Day Saint movement, a theology that boasts over 15 million congregants.
Smith’s religious fascinations seemed predestined, for at the age of twelve his family moved from Vermont to the ‘burned-over’ district of western New York, an area famous for its religious fanaticism. As an impressionable young man, Smith grew up during the Second Great Awakening, a nineteenth-century Protestant revival that had grown out of the First Great Awakening of the 1730s and 1740s, a spiritual movement that galvanised followers on both sides of the Atlantic, but which was especially popular amongst the American colonies. By the 1820s the Second Great Awakening was approaching its peak, fuelled by a unique blend of romanticism that employed an emotional appeal to the supernatural. Smith and his family struggled, and their hardship worsened when his older brother, the family’s principal provider, died in 1823. Smith had no choice but to take on various odd jobs, including the dubious vocation of treasure hunter. Not surprisingly, Smith incorporated a high degree of supernaturalism in his work. ...

Does Chinese Civilization Come From Ancient Egypt?-9/5 Foreign Policy, By Ricardo Lewis -- A new study has energized a century-long debate at the heart of China's national identity.
On a cool Sunday evening in March, a geochemist named Sun Weidong gave a public lecture to an audience of laymen, students, and professors at the University of Science and Technology in Hefei, the capital city of the landlocked province of Anhui in eastern China. But the professor didn’t just talk about geochemistry. He also cited several ancient Chinese classics, at one point quoting historian Sima Qian’s description of the topography of the Xia empire — traditionally regarded as China’s founding dynasty, dating from 2070 to 1600 B.C. “Northwards the stream is divided and becomes the nine rivers,” wrote Sima Qian in his first century historiography, the Records of the Grand Historian. “Reunited, it forms the opposing river and flows into the sea.” In other words, “the stream” in question wasn’t China’s famed Yellow River, which flows from west to east. “There is only one major river in the world which flows northwards. Which one is it?” the professor asked. “The Nile,” someone replied. Sun then showed a map of the famed Egyptian river and its delta — with nine of its distributaries flowing into the Mediterranean. This author, a researcher at the same institute, watched as audience members broke into smiles and murmurs, intrigued that these ancient Chinese texts seemed to better agree with the geography of Egypt than that of China. In the past year, Sun, a highly decorated scientist, has ignited a passionate online debate with claims that the founders of Chinese civilization were not in any sense Chinese but actually migrants from Egypt. He conceived of this connection in the 1990s while performing radiometric dating of ancient Chinese bronzes; to his surprise, their chemical composition more closely resembled those of ancient Egyptian bronzes than native Chinese ores. Both Sun’s ideas and the controversy surrounding them flow out of a much older tradition of nationalist archaeology in China, which for more than a century has sought to answer a basic scientific question that has always been heavily politicized: Where do the Chinese people come from? Sun argues that China’s Bronze Age technology, widely thought by scholars to have first entered the northwest of the country through the prehistoric Silk Road, actually came by sea. According to him, its bearers were the Hyksos, the Western Asian people who ruled parts of northern Egypt as foreigners between the 17th and 16th centuries B.C., until their eventual expulsion. He notes that the Hyksos possessed at an earlier date almost all the same remarkable technology — bronze metallurgy, chariots, literacy, domesticated plants and animals — that archaeologists discovered at the ancient city of Yin, the capital of China’s second dynasty, the Shang, between 1300 and 1046 B.C. Since the Hyksos are known to have developed ships for war and trade that enabled them to sail the Red and Mediterranean seas, Sun speculates that a small population escaped their collapsing dynasty using seafaring technology that eventually brought them and their Bronze Age culture to the coast of China. ... Or the Gobi Sea (now the Gobi Desert) had a river flowing north or the northern flowing river was on Lemuria, not far from China in the Pacific. Editor

25 New 'Dead Sea Scrolls' Revealed-10/12 Live Science, By Owen Jarus -- More than 25 previously unpublished "Dead Sea Scroll" fragments, dating back 2,000 years and holding text from the Hebrew Bible, have been brought to light, their contents detailed in two new books. The various scroll fragments record parts of the books of Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Samuel, Ruth, Kings, Micah, Nehemiah, Jeremiah, Joel, Joshua, Judges, Proverbs, Numbers, Psalms, Ezekiel and Jonah. The Qumran caves ? where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first discovered ? had yet to yield any fragments from the Book of Nehemiah; if this newly revealed fragment is authenticated it would be the first. Scholars have expressed concerns that some of the fragments are forgeries. These 25 newly published fragments are just the tip of the iceberg. A scholar told Live Science that around 70 newly discovered fragments have appeared on the antiquities market since 2002. Additionally, the cabinet minister in charge of the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA), along with a number of scholars, believes that there are undiscovered scrolls that are being found by looters in caves in the Judean Desert. The IAA is sponsoring a new series of scientific surveys and excavations to find these scrolls before looters do. ...

Speak With Love: How Your Words Literally Restructure Your Brain-8/29 Spirit Science,
The words you choose to use can literally change your brain.
Dr. Andrew Newberg, a neuroscientist at Thomas Jefferson University, and Mark Robert Waldman, a communications expert, collaborated on the book, “Words Can Change Your Brain.” In it, they write, “a single word has the power to influence the expression of genes that regulate physical and emotional stress.”Toward Digital Encryption When we use words filled with positivity, like “love” and “peace”, we can alter how our brain functions by increasing cognitive reasoning and strengthening areas in our frontal lobes. Using positive words more often than negative ones can kick-start the motivational centers of the brain, propelling them into action. On the opposite end of the spectrum, when we use negative words, we are preventing certain neuro-chemicals from being produced which contribute to stress management. Each and every one of us are initially hardwired to worry; it’s how our primal brain protects us from dangerous situations for survival. So, when we allow negative words and concepts into our thoughts, we are increasing the activity in our brain’s fear center (the amygdala), and causing stress-producing hormones to flood our system. These hormones and neurotransmitters interrupt the logic and reasoning processes in the brain and inhibit normal functionality. ...

The Mystical Early Pennsylvania Settler Who Lived in a Cave-9/29 Atlas Obscura, by Ed Simon -- Johannes Kelpius was really keen on the apocalypse.--
In the mid-17th century a religious mystic, seeker, and occultist named Johannes Kelpius laid in his bed in Transylvania, and he dreamt of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. And so, he went. Today in the neighborhood of Germantown, a few miles north of Center City, you can see where Kelpius would eventually live and die. By the Wissahickon Creek in Fairmont Park you can enter the cave that the largely forgotten Kelpius called his home. It's an unlikely spot to await the apocalypse, but religious fanaticism is not a new creation. Here, amongst broken beer bottles and graffiti, is what was once the anchorite’s cell where Kelpius and his band of mystical-minded, radical Protestant “monks” studied the Christian kabbalah, astrology, and magic. They awaited the apocalypse that they believed Revelation had foretold as beginning in this new city in a New World, on the western edge of everything, and east of Judgment Day. And while they waited that date (a 1694 which came and went without the end of the world) they prayed, they divinated, they meditated, they wrote, and they supposedly discovered occult secrets here by the shores of the Schuylkill. For John Greenleaf Whittier, the Fireside Poet of the 19th century, Kelpius was “weird as a wizard” with command “over arts forbid.” In a province where the second book printed after the Bible was a volume of occult lore, Kelpius was still one of the “maddest of goodmen,” as Whittier put it.

He was born in 1667, only one year after a diabolically and auspiciously apocalyptic year, which saw widespread millennial excitement throughout Europe. He was raised amongst the German minority of Transylvania, then an independent kingdom known for both its religious freedom and heterodoxy (as indeed Kelpius’ future home of Pennsylvania would be as well). Perhaps Kelpius would come to see something similar to that which he learned in his upbringing, among the wilderness of America. While still in Europe, Kelpius read the works of the Pietist Jakob Böhme, who was also a firm believer in the coming apocalypse. Based on both his reading of Revelation which spoke of an exilic remnant of the faithful that was as a “woman in the wilderness,” as well as glowing accounts of the colony of Pennsylvania, Kelpius became convinced that the “Philadelphia” which John of Patmos wrote of was not the historical settlement in Asia Minor, but rather this new metropolis on the American frontier. At the time, this proprietary English colony was the largest private land holding on Earth; it was also marked by an exceptional ethnic, linguistic, and religious diversity, truly a remnant of the varied faithful in this wilderness. Welcomed by that similarly religious non-conformist Penn (even though Kelpius’ private diaries could be scathing to the point of ingratitude when discussing the Quaker), Kelpius would make his home among the growing German population around Philadelphia, such as Daniel Falckner who was advocate for the colony in his pamphlet Curieuse Nachrischt von Pensylvania, and the brilliant polymath Daniel Pastorius who functioned as the de facto leader of the German community. Yet Kelpius and his fellow pilgrims were as men apart from Pennsylvania German society, true to the principles living in the wilderness of the forest with natural caves as their cells, awaiting the end of the world. ...

... While he and his followers lived in their monastic cells, here in what would be Germantown, Kelpius composed some of the first German hymns to be written in the New World, he trained his followers in the divine numerology of gemetria, and the community supported itself by casting astrological charts for the immigrants of Philadelphia. In this, his “Society of the Women in the Wilderness” attempted to create a perfect, communcal society—a utopia which would be present to witness the apocalypse.
... The world did not end in 1694 as he predicted, but in many ways it did die with his death in 1708. His followers, always small in number, were largely dispersed with the magus’ passing. Whether the prophet died in his cave or not is unknown. But, as a bit of local lore has it, that alchemist discovered the mythic “Philosopher’s Stone” capable of transmuting base metals into gold, only to toss it into the river before he died—even though some followers claimed that Kelpius never really did expire, rather elevating to a higher realm like the biblical prophet Enoch.

And now, the rest of the story ...

The Legend of the Wissahickon

William House: Editor, Reverse Spins:
Sir Francis Bacon had a dream spanning lifetimes of creating a land dedicated to new principles of brotherhood and democracy. To this end, he helped in the colonizing of America. To give the new land the underpinngs of spirituality it needed, he had a major hand in transforming the Freemasons and the Rosicrucians. At the same time, a contemporary of Bacon, Jakob Böhme (1575–1624), also brought forth some very mystical teachings. A small group steeped in the teachings of both the Rosicrucians and Böhme as well as Jane Leade (The Philadelphian Society), decided to make their way to America.

"On January 7, 1694 Kelpius and his followers sailed from Rotterdam to London in foul weather, narrowly escaping shipwreck in the English Channel. During a stopover in London Kelpius hobnobbed with Jane Leade, a prophetess who co-founded the Philadelphiast movement with John Pordage in 1670. The Society took its name from the righteous Church of Philadelphia mentioned in Revelation 3:7. ... Kelpius and his disciples walked all the way to Jacob Isaac Van Bebber’s cabin in Germantown. The monks soon began constructing a monastery in the deep woods west of Germantown near present-day Hermitage Mansion, on Hermit Lane. At that site, in accordance with Revelation 12:16, they would await the arrival of the Woman of the Wilderness and her Baby Son who was destined to rule the world. The Chapter of Perfection’s late founder Johann Jacob Zimmerman had been an accomplished mathematician and astronomer. He made elaborate astrological calculations in an effort to predict the Millennium’s onset. ... Kelpius’s order became popularly known as The Monks of the Wissahickon or The Monks of the Ridge."

Upon Kelpius's death in 1708, the numbers of The Monks of the Wissahickon dwindled but then rose with the election of a new leader. He was "Conrad Matthai [who] possessed both healing powers and psychic ability. He cast horoscopes, exorcised demons, prophesied, and had the ability to project his “astral body.” ibid. After Matthai's passing eventually there was only one surviving member, Christopher Witt. He "excelled in many fields of endeavor, including medicine, astrology, botany, music, drawing, architecture, and clock making. He practiced medicine with consummate skill, utilizing science as well as folk remedies and faith healing." ibid. Witt died around January 30th, 1765. Over the years the Monks of the Wissahickon had amassed quite an esoteric library. One man inherited this library. He was none other than Benjamin Franklin.

Although Witt was the last recorded surviving member of this Order, there seems to be one other who had very similar spiritual leanings. The coincidence of location and mystical continuity are undeniable and cannot be an accident. Just eight years after Witt's passing, this mysterious person had a very important mission to fufill. A man was about to cross his path who's destiny it was to bring to fruition all of Franics Bacon's plans. By assuming the lead in this great endeavor, he would need a Spiritual anointing. It is a ritual and needed service that dates back to antiquity. Melchizedek was there to bless Abraham. John the Baptist anointed "the only begottten Son of God." And now the One who was about to undertake one of the greatest missions of the Great White Brotherhood in the last several thousand years, needed that anointing to propel him forward with a Spiritual Fire that would carry him and the nation forward to ultimate Victory. I would not be surprised if the one who did the anointing was not a member of the Order of Melchizedek, a title he probably received from a land and time shrouded in legend.

The Legend of the Wissahickon

The original author and publisher are unknown.
Taken from the Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., by Guy W. Ballard in the early 1930's.

 Near Philadelphia, on the banks of the lovely Wissahikon River, there was once a Protestant monastery where lived a brotherhood of noble men who had left Europe and sought a home in the wilderness where they might worship God in their own way, far from the courts of kings. They were known as Fanatics.
About one mile from the old monastery, there lived a man who was of the brotherhood in belief, but not with them because he had brought with him to the new world his young son and baby daughter. He was a nobleman of wealth and position, whose religious beliefs were tolerated neither by Protestants nor Catholics. He had lived patiently and quietly in the Old World doing his best and faithfully serving his king, until his beloved wife died. Then he had given up his castle, his lands, his title and most of his great possessions, and fled across the sea with his young son and baby daughter, to make a home in an old time blockhouse of the Wissahikon wilderness. There he lived and studied the book of Revelations for seventeen years. Meantime his little son became a noble youth who shared in his father's every hope and conviction; his baby daughter became a fair maiden, lovely beyond words; with gold hair which fell not in ringlets nor curls, but in soft, wavy profusion to her shoulders.
We are told that when the shadows were beginning to lengthen on the last day of 1773, the little family might have been seen walking arm in arm along the banks of the Wissahikon, beneath trees bending under their weight of snow. The father, who was then known and loved far and near as the Priest of the Wissahikon, wore a velvet cloak with a silver cross suspended by a cord around his neck. The girl, with a look of adoration upon her face, listened without questioning to the conversation between father and brother in whose eyes shone the light of immortality. For seventeen years the old man had studied Revelations and again he repeated what he had affirmed so many times before, as the result of these years of study.
"The Old World," said he, "is sunk in all manner of crime, as was the Antediluvian World; the New World is given to man as a refuge, even as the ark was given to Noah and his children.
"The New World is the last altar of human freedom left on the surface of the globe. Never shall the footsteps of Kings pollute its soil. It is the last hope of man. God has spoken and it is so. Amen." ...
