From"Decoded" The arrival


The weather still a bit nippy, free illuminsts from various local and non-local bodies assembled at consecration rock on March 29, 2014. Well attemded for the time of year, we did our traditional Workings, consecration, points chauds, healing circle and a homily from our early days many years ago:
[Three Consecrated Bishops for Consecration; One Bishop for ordination.]
Principle Officiant - In biblical times the laying on of hands was an action which conferred blessing or authority. To wit, Isaac blessed his son Jacob by laying hands (Genesis 27), and Aaron and the High Priests who succeeded him transferred the sins of the Children of Israel to a sacrificial goat (Leviticus 16:21). Finally, in the Old Testament priests were ordained by the laying on of hands...The Orthodox also use laying on of hands for the ordination (called Cheirotonia) of the higher clergy (bishops, priests and deacons) which is distinguished from the blessing (called Cheirothesia) of the lower clergy (taper bearers, readers and subdeacons). Priests and deacons receive the laying on of hands by a single bishop, bishops are consecrated by three or more bishops...A Cathar Perfect, the highest initiate in the Cathar hierarchy after spending time as a Listener and then Believer, had to undergo a rigorous training of three years before being inducted as a member of the spirtual elite of the now defunct religious movement. This took place during a ceremony in which various Scriptural extracts were quoted, including, most particularly, the opening verses of the Gospel of John. The ceremony was completed by a ritual laying on of hands as the candidate vowed to abjure the world and accept the Holy Spirit...

At priestly ordination the Catholic bishop imposes hands upon the deacon who is by that action and the form of the consecratory preface ordained to the priesthood. The red chasuble the ordinand is wearing is pinned up until the laying on of hands.

In the New Testament the laying on of hands was associated with the receiving of the Holy Spirit
Leviticus 8-9
5 Moses said to the assembly, "This is what the LORD has commanded to be done." 6 Then Moses brought Aaron and his sons forward and washed them with water. 7 He put the tunic on Aaron, tied the sash around him, clothed him with the robe and put the ephod on him. He also fastened the ephod with a decorative waistband, which he tied around him. 8 He placed the breastpiece on him and put the Urim and Thummim in the breastpiece. 9 Then he placed the turban on Aaron's head and set the gold plate, the sacred emblem, on the front of it, as the LORD commanded Moses.
  10 Then Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and everything in it, and so consecrated them. 11 He sprinkled some of the oil on the altar seven times, anointing the altar and all its utensils and the basin with its stand, to consecrate them. 12 He poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron's head and anointed him to consecrate him. 13 Then he brought Aaron's sons forward, put tunics on them, tied sashes around them and fastened caps on them, as the LORD commanded Moses.
9:22 Then Aaron lifted his hands toward the people and blessed them.
Numbers 27:23
Then he laid his hands on him and commissioned him, as the LORD instructed through Moses.
2 Kings 4 32 When Elisha reached the house, there was the boy lying dead on his couch. 33 He went in, shut the door on the two of them and prayed to the LORD. 34 Then he got on the bed and lay on the boy, mouth to mouth, eyes to eyes, hands to hands. As he stretched himself out on him, the boy's body grew warm. 35 Elisha turned away and walked back and forth in the room and then got on the bed and stretched out on him once more. The boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes.
  36 Elisha summoned Gehazi and said, "Call the Shunammite." And he did. When she came, he said, "Take your son." 37 She came in, fell at his feet and bowed to the ground. Then she took her son and went out.
By the Ancient authority handed on to me by the most ancient lineages, I pass unto you the egregore of power to transform the profane to the sacred, and [ordain you, consecrate you) (priest, priestess (bishop) in the lineages pased to me.
I anoint you with oil (head, palms, feet) and lay hands upon your head.

Numerous persons received points chauds from some of the bishops present.

We then held our enthusiastic healing circle on Consecration Rock, and adjourned to the Nature Center about a mile away to toast and hail the new bishops.

The Consecration of Tau Antonous Xavier I, Consecration Rock Arabia Mt GA April 12, 2014.



[Anoint Forehead]

I was sent forth from the power,

and I have come to those who reflect upon me,

and I have been found among those who seek after me.

Look upon me, you who reflect upon me,

and you hearers, hear me.

You who are waiting for me, take me to yourselves.

And do not banish me from your sight.

And do not make your voice hate me, nor your hearing.

Do not be ignorant of me anywhere or any time. Be on your guard!

Do not be ignorant of me.

For I am the one who alone exists,

and I have no one who will judge me.

For many are the pleasant forms which exist in numerous sins,

and incontinencies,

and disgraceful passions,

and fleeting pleasures,

which (men) embrace until they become sober

and go up to their resting place.

And they will find me there,

and they will live,

and they will not die again.

Proverbs 8: CHah-ve-moht (First Co-consecrator)

Here then is Wisdom, the Sofia, the CHAHVEMOHT

1Does not (A)wisdom call,
         And understanding lift up her voice?
    2On top of (B)the heights beside the way,
         Where the paths meet, she takes her stand;
    3Beside the (C)gates, at the opening to the city,
         At the entrance of the doors, she cries out:
    4"To you, O men, I call,
         And my voice is to the sons of men.
    5"O (D)naive ones, understand prudence;
         And, O (E)fools, understand wisdom.
    6"Listen, for I will speak (F)noble things;
         And the opening of my lips will reveal (G)right things.
    7"For my (H)mouth will utter truth;
         And wickedness is an abomination to my lips.
    8"All the utterances of my mouth are in righteousness;
         There is nothing (I)crooked or perverted in them.
    9"They are all (J)straightforward to him who understands,
         And right to those who (K)find knowledge.
    10"Take my (L)instruction and not silver,
         And knowledge rather than choicest gold.
    11"For wisdom is (M)better than jewels;
         And (N)all desirable things cannot compare with her.
    12"I, wisdom, (O)dwell with prudence,
         And I find (P)knowledge and discretion.
    13"The (Q)fear of the LORD is to hate evil;
         (R)Pride and arrogance and (S)the evil way
         And the (T)perverted mouth, I hate.
    14"(U)Counsel is mine and (V)sound wisdom;
         I am understanding, (W)power is mine.
    15"By me (X)kings reign,
         And rulers decree justice.
    16"By me princes rule, and nobles,
         All who judge rightly.
    17"I (Y)love those who love me;
         And (Z)those who diligently seek me will find me.
    18"(AA)Riches and honor are with me,
         Enduring (AB)wealth and righteousness.
    19"My fruit is (AC)better than gold, even pure gold,
         And my yield better than (AD)choicest silver.
    20"I walk in the way of righteousness,
         In the midst of the paths of justice,
    21To endow those who love me with wealth,
         That I may (AE)fill their treasuries.
    22"The LORD possessed me (AF)at the beginning of His way,
         Before His works of old.
    23"From everlasting I was (AG)established,
         From the beginning, (AH)from the earliest times of the earth.
    24"When there were no (AI)depths I was brought forth,
         When there were no springs abounding with water.
    25"(AJ)Before the mountains were settled,
         Before the hills I was brought forth;
    26While He had not yet made the earth and the fields,
         Nor the first dust of the world.
    27"When He (AK)established the heavens, I was there,
         When (AL)He inscribed a circle on the face of the deep,
    28When He made firm the skies above,
         When the springs of the deep became fixed,
    29When (AM)He set for the sea its boundary
         So that the water would not transgress His command,
         When He marked out (AN)the foundations of the earth;
    30Then (AO)I was beside Him, as a master workman;
         And I was daily His delight,
         Rejoicing always before Him,
    31Rejoicing in the world, His earth,
         And having (AP)my delight in the sons of men.
    32"Now therefore, O sons, (AQ)listen to me,
         For (AR)blessed are they who keep my ways.
    33"(AS)Heed instruction and be wise,
         And do not neglect it.
    34"(AT)Blessed is the man who listens to me,
         Watching daily at my gates,
         Waiting at my doorposts.
    35"For (AU)he who finds me finds life
         And (AV)obtains favor from the LORD.
    36"But he who sins against me (AW)injures himself;
         All those who (AX)hate me (AY)love death."

HYMN OF THE ATEN (2nd Co-consecrator)

When you set in western lightland,
Earth is in darkness as if in death;
One sleeps in chambers, heads covered,
One eye does not see another,
Were they robbed of their goods,
That are under their heads,
People would not remark it,
Every lion comes from its den,
All the serpents bite;
Darkness hovers, earth is silent,
As their maker rests in lightland.
Earth brightens when you dawn in lightland,
When you shine as Aten of daytime;
As you cast your rays,
The Two Lands are in festivity.
Awake they stand on their feet,
You have roused them;
Bodies cleansed, clothed,
Their arms adore your appearance.
The entire land sets out to work,
All beasts browse on their herbs;
Trees, herbs are sprouting,
Birds fly from their nests,
Their wings greeting your ka,
All flocks frisk on their feet,
All that fly up and alight,
They live when you dawn for them.
Ships fare north, fare south as well,
Roads lie open when you rise;
The fish in the river dart before you,
Your rays are in the midst of the sea.
Who makes seed grow in women,
Who creates people from sperm;
Who feeds the son in his mother's womb,
Who soothes him to still his tears.
Nurse in the womb,
Giver of breath,
To nourish all that he made,
When he comes from the womb to breathe,
On the day of his birth,
You open wide his mouth,
You supply his needs.
When the chick in the egg speaks in the shell,
You give him breath within to sustain him;
When you have made him complete,
To break out from the egg,
He comes out from the egg,
To announce his completion,
Walking on his legs he comes from it.





Two charters for Harrisburg PA and Berlin Germany were proclaimed and sighed and sealed!

And we held our powerful healing circle as always!


Notes on our Workings

The Great Hymn to Aten and Psalm 104

There is no longer any doubt the Hebrew word “Adon” (Lord) is from the ancient Egyptian “Aten” or “Aton” as it is spelled by some scholars. The name “Aten” also closely resmbles the Hebrew word “Adonai” which means “my Lord” – the root being “Adon.”

Many have pointed out the numerous similarities between the Hebrew or Aramaic hymn Psalm 104 and the Great Hymn to Aten composed by Akhenaten. Psalm 104 is attributed to the great Prophet Moses, who has also been identified as none other than Akhenaten (Akhnaten) himself.

While the sun is used as a symbol to represent God in many cultures, Aten is neither the sun nor is He the “sun god” as some have erroneously suggested.

The Scriptures use the symbol of the sun as representing God. Notice how the Psalmist describes the attributes of God:

“Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment; Who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain. Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters. Who maketh the clouds his chariot; Who walketh on the wings of the wind; Who maketh winds his messengers; flames of fire his ministers (Psalm 104:2,3)

It should be noted that the sun itself was not worshipped by the faithful monotheistic Egyptians or Hebrews, but it was served as a ruling deity by the polytheists among other ancient Egyptians.

2. Scientific Illuminism requires a non-dogmatic, experimental
3. A free society linked in free communion should be actualized.
4. We facilitate, we do not lead. We do the Work, we do not extract
oaths or dues, or require dogmatic beliefs.
