Should we say ‘Hog wash” here? I really do not know, what I think however, is that those who have formed fraternities or are members of any, are brilliant in way of keeping what they are apart of as sacred, by keeping all within their lodges to themselves, which according to many are protected by oaths in which they took. We are all familiar with the term “lose lips sinks ships”, if Africans had not opened up themselves to the Europeans invaders when they came to the continent to rape, rob and pillage, life for our ancestors perhaps would not have turned out the way it did. Africans wrote nothing down, as did other cultures, so it was easy for the Greeks to steal all of our knowledge and pen their names to it as authors. Africans embraced the invaders and taught them, when they themselves had no culture and absolutely no knowledge of what African people knew whatsoever and so the so called founders of philosophy and all that the Africans taught is now credited to the Greeks.

Here is a little on free masonry how it came into being, I will post part two on Friday. I have more to write on Secret Societies and their origins and more. I will also teach about their functions in the school when it manifests here in our world as it already manifested in the world of spirit. If we speak or discuss about things deemed “unspeakable”, it lifts the veil or remove the shadow of doubt, curiosity, fear, thoughts of wickedness or evil which our minds may attach to it. These topic and more will be apart of the Obara Meji Osun University, imagine the great time and lively discussions we will all have there! Stay Blessed
Experienced occultists who have probed the inner mysteries of this arcane tradition are the Guardians of an Ancient Wisdom which is the secret teaching behind all religions. Yes, if oonuh neva know, behind every religion, there lies a mystery, a secret which only the ones awake can see and know. While Occultism, like all religious systems, has its fair share of eccentrics, it also boasts members who are respectable people of high social standing.
When King Saul took office he had all the witches killed and banned from Israel, but exactly a day before he and his entire army died, he sought the services of a witch, who fearfully and reluctantly conjured the spirit of Samuel the prophet to prophesy what would happen to him when he faced war next, he was told that they would all perish and indeed they did. Who or what exactly were the three wise men (Maggi’s) who travelled to meet the baby Jesus bearing gifts of Gold, frank incense and myrrh?.
What really happened to Mohammed when he went into the cave searching for God and had a vision of the angel Gabriel who took him on a journey in which the Koran was born.
Questions on the Occult and also certain secret societies in the minds of many are, what they are, do they really exist and what is the secrecy behind their existence? The main focus of the topic yesterday was Free Masonry. For most, to even mention the name sparks some sense of fear and curiosity. From the beginning of time there has been societies which have been shrouded in secrecy, even our beloved Christ was said to be a part of the very powerful Essene.
Let me move along, before the bible beating Christians dem run come in come sey mi ah defile the Lord.
Freemasonry for years has been singled out as a potentially corrupting influence, mainly because its members includes businessmen, Judges and police officers whose Masonic oaths and activities are regarded as the ideal cover for nepotism. It can be said that it is shrouded in secrets and riddled with terrible oaths to protect the fact of what it truly is, a business man’s club. A ladder of social and economic growth, depending who you are and who you know and what will be your major contribution to the society. The argument of the masons are that they are not a secret society but a society with secrets. To the true Occultist, who is not a member of the society but are in fact knowledgeable people, to this we would most certainly agree. The wisdom behind this statement is, if indeed free masonry were a secret society how would it be so popularly known or known about, but never forget the saying, “To hide something from the mass, put it in plain sight”. The compass and the square? Hmmmmm.
The origins of free masonry lies in the symbolic story related to candidates for initiation into the three degrees of Masonry, known as Entered Apprentice, fellow Craftsman and Master Mason. The legend is the semi- mythical story of the construction of King Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem. The temple was regarded as the repository of ancient occult wisdom and symbolism by both Free Masons and Knights Templar. The building was initiated by King David and completed by his son Solomon after David’s death. The master builder was Hiram Abiff, who was skilled in geometry. It took seven years for Hiram to complete the building, the number seven is very significant in occult tradition and Masonry, but Hiram died mysteriously and violently.
The story goes that at noon one day, the other masons were resting, taking their midday break. Hiram the Master Mason visited the temple, passing through the entrance flanked by the two pillars at the gate way (Joachim and Boaz). Hiram was approached by his fellow masons who demanded from him the secrets of the Master Mason’s word. Hiram refused while telling the worker that he would receive it in good time once he progressed further in his career. The Mason not satisfied with the answer struck Hiram with a blow which made him stumble, dazed and bleeding to the second gate of the temple. There a second worker accosted him and asked the same question, no answer was forthcoming, he was hit again. Hiram staggered to the third gate (the western entrance) where another worker waited who proceeded to ask the same question to which he got no response, it was then the final blow was struck and Hiram Abiff, Master Mason died.
The three masons carried Hiram’s body from the temple to the top of a nearby hill, dug a shallow grave and buried him there. The grave was marked with an Acacia tree, (one day I will tell you all the mystery of this tree, oonuh memba mi) and returned to work as if nothing happened. Hiram was found to be missing and it took fifteen days to find his body. The body was exhumed, by order of Solomon and reburied with a full religious ceremony befitting a craftsman of his rank.
The three assassins eventually were exposed, tried in a high court and put to death for their crime. (sound familiar to oonuh?? Hehehe!!, nuh mind me, mi jus love laugh).
Women listen up, It is important for all of you to know that no woman can be members of Free masonry, (please take note of this as in my posts something’s will be revealed, and we will know or begin to understand our power and why we have be vilified or even demonized within almost every religious teachings…)
Hiram Abiff was from a place called Tyre, he was sent to build the Temple which was supposed to be a temple dedicated to Yahweh by the King of Trye at the request of King Solomon. Tyre was known (during the time Solomon was on the throne) as the center of Goddess worship. Hiram Abiff was a dedicated worshiper of the Great Goddess of Tyre and in his construction of the temple to Yahweh hidden symbolism of the pagan worship were placed within temple.
Let me make stop here for now, as the information which I have to share is long and will have to be segmented in parts.
