“Understand now, at the commencement of your studies along occult lines, that the universe of matter is only a symbol, and the infinity of material objects are but an infinite number of symbols. Back of each symbol lies a mystery – truth. It is to solve the mystery or discover the truth of being for which you now labor. As you discover truth after truth, the mysteries disappear; and the true illuminated one’s last hope is finally to solve all mysteries and attain to immortality, or eternal truth.”

- Milton A. Pottenger: Symbolism

All alone at work/the Masonic Temple. The rest of the building got to go home early on account of the 4th of July. This leaves me here to look over things until second shift comes. I’ll probably end up breaking out the 3DS and playing some Shinobi or Blaster Master. 

In the meantime, say hi or something. For as old as this building is, it’s disappointingly not haunted so I’ve got nobody here to keep me company.  

anonymous asked:

You should watch a documentary on YouTube called "The Greatest Story Never Told", I highly recommend it. I'm only sending this ask because of a post you made a bit ago. I'm not expecting your viewpoints to change or even give me the time of day but it would surely boost my depressing view of people a bit if you gave it a chance.

Hahah oh man okay, Mr. Anonymous-Tumblr-spammer-doing-an-incredibly-shitty-job-at-trying-to-fake-customize-your-generic-blitz-mailing, that sounds totally legit! I looked this documentary up and haha it’s a 10 hour PRO-HITLER documentary made by a crazy person.  I don’t have time for that shit.

I did, however, notice that the crazy person director did a Reddit AMA, where they revealed that he believes Muslims are the pawns of international Capitalist Communist Jewish bankers,  the Vatican is controlled by Freemasons, and you can’t criticize Hitler for the Holocaust because, you know, America did that whole Japanese internment thing and apparently that makes it all a wash.

So yeah, fuck off, Nazi scum.

“The bee is a symbol of wisdom, for as this tiny insect collects pollen from the flowers, so men may extract wisdom from the experiences of daily life. The bee is sacred to the goddess Venus and, according to mystics, it is one of several forms of life which came to the earth from the planet Venus millions of years ago.”

“Much has been said of the loneliness of wisdom, and how much the Truth seeker becomes a pilgrim wandering from star to star. To the ignorant, the wise man is lonely because he abides in distant heights of the mind. But the wise man himself does not feel lonely. Wisdom brings him nearer to life; closer to the heart of the world than the foolish man can ever be. Bookishness may lead to loneliness, and scholarship may end in a battle of beliefs, but the wise man gazing off into space sees not an emptiness, but a space full of life, truth, and law.”

— Manly P. Hall

Solomon, Magick, and Freemasonry

It is eminently appropriate that the person of King Solomon rises as a central figure in the traditions of both magic and Masonry, for it is written that Solomon was not only a great and wise man of God, he was also the most powerful magician the world had ever known.

The biblical Solomon is downright dull when compared to Solomon the magician of other traditions. Judaism and Islam seem to meld into a magical mist of fable and fantasy in the person of Solomon. He is at once a Hebrew king, a Prophet of Allah, and an audacious oriental wizard. Solomon the magician could talk with animals, fly through the air on a magic carpet, and cause others to fly through the air to him. He could control the powers of nature and was master of the denizens of the spirit world, the demons, the afrites, and genii of Shahrazad’s A Thousand and One Arabian Nights. A recurring theme in these tales is the assertion that Solomon enlisted the services of genii and other maleficent spirits to construct the Temple of God.
