King Hiram: The Masonic Chief Architect from Crete by Moe Bedard of Gnostic Warrior


This writing takes students places they need to get to, but many of the current schools of esoteric study won’t get them headed in a proper direction or destination.
That system failure I have observed is often due to inadequate instruction, with instructors who are well versed in teaching the Masonic or other esoteric systems in such short supply today that it should be considered a travesty that matters have been permitted to erode and deteriorate the way that they have.
Please remember that there are 7 liberal arts & sciences. We as Freemasons are encouraged to study them all, and in that study it should eventually become apparent to any student of Freemasonry how they inter-connect and interrelate.
Also remember that advancement in Freemasonry, just as in life should be on true merit, not seniority or favoritism. As Freemasons we are to work diligently, learning and perfecting our “craft”, showing ourselves qualified for advancement, that peculiar mark of distinction bestowed upon us by the Craft.
I sincerely hope that you will all enjoy this writing by Bro. Moe Bedard of Gnostic Warrior.

Back to work, break is over!

Well, it is time to resume work on some Masonic related research that I took a summer break from.
Along with the Masonic research, I do genealogy and history on the subjects I AM studying to get an overview and feel for them as an individual. That always turns out interesting.
Reading those proceedings from Grand Lodges (or fraternal groups) can turn out to be informative as well as be a very good indicator of societal conditions of the time period. Investigating other fraternal groups can tell much about what was going on in a given community, and who was doing it.
West Virginia is/ has been interesting to study, as are the areas along the borders of adjoining states such as Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland & Virginia.
I will resume making posts starting November 2015

Masonic visit to Lodge Ad Lucem No. 812


On October 26, 2015 A.D./ 6015 A.L. I had the pleasure of accepting invitation to and visiting with WBro. Erastus Allen and the members of Lodge Ad Lucem No. 812 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


WBro. Allen and myself are both members of The Philalethes Society which is how we first became acquainted several years ago.

I had a wonderful time visiting and listening to the educational lectures, one of which was from a visiting brother from San Marcos Lodge in San Marcos, Texas. There was also another visiting Brother from California present at this meeting.

After the lodge was closed, we proceeded to a Table Lodge and had a joyous time fellowshipping and enjoying each others company with more stimulating conversation.

I would strongly recommend that if you find yourself in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on the 4th Monday of the month, find time to visit with these Brothers. It will be time well spent in my opinion.





Myself with WBro. Eric Cohen, Worshipful Master of Lodge Ad Lucem No. 812

Hidden Church of the Illuminati: A Review of Esoteric Tradition from Atlantis to the Present Day by Richard, Duc de Palatine

International College of Esoteric Studies Liber 71 

(posted to FB group The Liberian Compass on 8 October 2015 1600 hours)


Title: Hidden Church of the Illuminati: A Review of Esoteric Tradition from Atlantis to the Present Day by Richard, Duc de Palatine


Purpose: This writing expounds on and helps explain some aspects of Freemasonry Craft degrees, especially the degree of Master Mason, including aspects of the Holy Royal Arch Mason degree


Though Liber 71 (and others) can be found online, anyone not a Freemason will NOT see the connections or usefulness of this (and many other lessons) that come from the various esoteric schools/ traditions that Freemasonry has pulled its lessons/ teachings from.


What I have always sought to correct is the overall lack of Masonic teaching, coupled with the fact that there are so few teachers of the Masonic or other Esoteric teachings despite the interest by many who are on a spiritual path seeking Light/ Enlightenment.


It is my sincere hope that those who choose to read/ study this Liber will come to see the connection(s) and gain better understanding of Masonic ritualistic teachings and the important lessons contained therein.


Fraternally,
