Symposia 2016

The Symposium of 2016 held under Raphael and comprising a mixed attendance of the 33 degree produced the following result under the passage tides from Uriel to Michael.

The Land o the Leal.....the land of trust and trustworthiness, that is the Spiritual World. 

To cross the threshold before death, to develop initiate consciousness in other words, means one has Trust, one is Trusted by the Spiritual World, for RS has told us that to be a Spiritual Scientist means not to see into the Spiritual World, but to be seen by the Spiritual World. 

When this trust is there, then one is trusted with and given Insight, what RS called Intuition. To be given insights is Grace.   Everyone has insights, intuitions....but not many have the insight into their own insights or intuitions...that is the path of Anthroposophia through Philosophia and Gnosisophia...The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity, in other words.

 Grace does not test the human being, it is an act of Love.  The Guardian of the Threshold tests the reception of Grace in the human soul...in other words the Guardian asks certain questions of the soul every night, when the astral body and Ich leave the body. 

This is the Initiation Drama. 

Every night the soul faces the Guardian and if the soul has not worked enough on the grace given it then it is thrust back from the Threshold.
This in turn creates what can only be called "astral turbulence", and the soul must further wrestle with itself until full clarity is achieved into its own insights.

This clarification process begins with the Thinking, then the Feeling, then the Will....although one must have the will to clarity in the first place. This route to the threshold through the Philosophy of Spiritual Activity is the safest because it contains the most severe initiation trials. There are other routes within Anthroposophy as given by RS, but these are the Platonic routes...the one through The Philosophy of Spiritual Activity is the sole Aristotelian route.

In Anthroposophy, natural Platonists must convert to Aristotle, and natural Aristotelians must convert to Plato. This develops the necessary mobility and flexibility in the thinking to break down the resistance of the Ahrimanised intellect, so that trust in thinking itself develops. 

The intellect can be imagined like a steel net which captures birds, the thoughts, in midflight, as hunters do when trapping birds from a flock. This picture is originally given in Theaetetus by Plato, but since his day, when the new born intellect was more flexible the picture is an aviary.   The intellect has since become hardened to steel, and RS gives this picture of the thoughts as birds again in Man and Animal in Pedagogy.

Nowadays the steel intellect kills the birds on impact, so one can say all our thoughts are dead unless we take it upon ourselves to use the "steel" in another way, for we cannot go back. The task of our era was to develop the steel intellect....then to wrest control of it from Ahriman and deliver it to Michael, with whose help we can turn the steel net into a lyre strung with steel. This is the way to making even Ahriman harmonise with Michael's cosmic melody.

Here you will be given a route into the comprehension of this aspect of Initiation Science and the Spiritual World via the Scottish Folk soul.

Symposia 2015 Results

The Flight into Egypt

Matthew 2:13-15

Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream saying, "Arise, take the young Child and His Mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word; for Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him."

Adam Elsheimer - Die Flucht nach Ägypten 1609

It is my belief that the angel of Joseph, who guided him to take his family into Egypt is now become an archangel and further this "young" archangel is seeking to assert his place as the true Folk Spirit of America.
I have no proofs to offer for this assertion, nor am I willing to assert it.   It is of the nature of Spiritual Science that such an intuition is a momentary perception.  Such a development, of a Being from the angelic sphere to the archangelic sphere is not a momentary happening, but a process that spans eons of Time and in its last epochal phase begins to manifest in world history.

It is as Elsheimer portrayed it, full of darkness and lit momentarily here and there by the other intuitions, inspirations and imaginations which illuminate partial aspects of it.

These Times, epochally, and also in the particular under Uriel and Mikael 2015 also illuminate it, for we are witnessing a mass flight from the Politics of Herod to  new Spiritual Egypt...Europa.  Before our very eyes, thousands are engaged in Die Flucht nach Agypten.

They flee the Ahrimanic double of America which is already incarnate in Herodian politics, the results of which leave the trail of blood, destruction and massacre through the middle east and Afghanistan.  This "young" Folk Spirit is in battle with both the Ahrimanic and the Luciferic doubles of America at the level of the Folk Spirits.  Asuras represent, as a geo-astral category of Evil, the ghost continent of Anglo-America, the double of Atlantis which Ahriman, Lucifer  and Asura hope to populate with souls they win from Christ and in the future materialise and harden the Earth into what Rudolf Steiner has already described.

The doubles at the archangelic level seek the ability to inspire human beings, an ability that is denied the Archai and thus Mikael himself.  To battle Mikael they must conquer the Folk Spirits, the Archangelic realm and thus gain entry to the soul of the human being.  Here human beings either fight for or abandon their Folk Soul.

Because America is a cosmopolis, and a very young cosmopolis, it is both universal and yet entirely individual.  To come about it has needed a Folk Spirit with the "same qualities."  But such qualities only came to Earth with Christ, so no Folk Spirit existed for America.  Here Mikael entered.  Mikael had already served as Folk Spirit in the Intellectual Soul Epoch and earlier and was progressing to the rank of Archai, or Time Spirit, for the birth of the Consciousness Soul epoch.  It is my intuition that Mikael overshadowed the Angel of Joseph, for in Mikael lived the Cosmic Intelligence and the wisdom of the Genealogy of Jesus Christ.  This wisdom, this Sophia, bore the foreknowledge of "not I, but Christos in me" a new Universal open to all human beings regardless of race or religion...open to the cosmopolis of humanity in other words.  Cosmopolis is also Freedom for humanity, it is characteristic of Mikael's influence in the world according to Spiritual Science and we have from Rudolf Steiner that Jesus Christ began his mission in Cana of Galilee for just this reason..it was cosmopolitan.  Cosmopolitan America has been for the world a modern Cana in Galilee, the place where water becomes wine, where freedom is guaranteed.   But now it is fast becoming a Judean desert, under the Politics of Herod void of humanity at home and abroad, killing its own and killing others.  All this is an expression of the battle being fought in the archangelic realm for the soul of man.

For these reasons I believe what I believe.  One needs no clairvoyance to see in the massacres of children and young people in America the inspiration of Evil...Herodian Evil.   Thus I call on all christian esotericists whether members of Ordo Eirene or not, to give consideration to the Flight into Egypt.

Above are the results of the Women Only Symposium held under Uriel 2015.  The Men's Symposium held under Gabriel 2015 failed to produce anything spiritually since all the men failed the tests of their 33Degree; however despite this failure there was some pragmatic product which had to be rescued by putting it through the Women Only Symposium under Uriel.  

Gabriel in the Southern Hemisphere passed the failure of the Men's Symposium through the centre of the earth to Uriel in the Northern hemisphere where the gaze of Uriel (see RS on the 4 Seasons and the Archangels)  could examine the failure as it was held aloft by the Women's Symposium.  The blessing accorded the Women's Symposium was the further insights into The Flight into Egypt.  The fruits are now passed on under Michael as the content of the 33Degree (see Down the Well, at Tibby Fowlers Bothy).  These fruits are now made public to all men in the hope that there are men capable of passing the tests.  These 33Degree tests are also active in the Anthroposophical Society which from 1925 onward has repeatedly and with steadfast surety produced the same failure.  

The Mens Symposium within Ordo Eirene is now in abeyance.  The seeds borne in the fruits of the Women's Symposuim where the tests of the 33Degree were passed by all the women present will sprout under Raphael.    Egoismus in the Men's Symposium led it to chaos.

Ordo Eirene Membership Fee

The fee for membership of Ordo Eirene is one Manichean dollar

The Manichean dollar is the coming global currency. Its actuality is still very far off, but it is coming out of the constellation Gemini and Mercury and Venus are guiding it.

The Gemini aspect of the Manichean dollar is that it is the twin of the black, filthy dollar currently shedding blood in the Middle East, and causing suffering, poverty and hardship in the West and all other compass points.

The Manichean dollar is this occult black-magic earthly dollar matched with an inner spiritual attitude that brings it into the sphere of influence of Manichean redemption. 

Christian Esoteric Anthroposophers come to an experience of Judas through the silver forces of the moon. This leads them to the experience of Pilate and to the Politics of Herod, the current blood lust coming out of the global political sphere.

The economic sphere is currently under the sign of Judas and thus betrayal. The political sphere is under the sign of Herod, thus massacre of innocents, and the cultural sphere is under the sign of Pilate,
the washing of the hands of responsibility.

This experience cannot be avoided. The world economy as outlined by Rudolf Steiner and portrayed in Shepherds' Fire in Tibby Fowler's Bothy is such that we cannot avoid betraying each other, nor avoid all the karmic consequences of this disruption of karma by the forces of unfreedom, the forces of economic slavery.
Such is the world economy that each and everyone of us has all the blood shed in the world on our hands through the manipulation of money by the forces of evil. The blood of Syria is on our hands, the blood of Palestine is on our hands, the blood of Iraq is on our hands. The blood of mothers and children is on our hands.

This is our forced enslavement to evil, for no matter our self perceived moral cleanliness, as soon as we spend money, which we must do to eat, we simultaneously buy weapons of mass destruction and the effects are visible wherever innocents are dying by warfare or starvation. We are beyond political wars and are now in the territory of the demonic voracious economic forces which value human life below one cent.

I say again, since the economic crash of 2008/9 not one of us can avoid killing innocent children in the economic sphere. Our politicians, by failing to control our bankers, have made all citizens of the West complicit in murder in the Middle East and beyond. These are the economic realities and the means whereby we are drafted into the killing fields of Herod...through the money in our pockets.

For the love of money is the root of all evil:

1 Timothy 6:10

The Manichean dollar is the tiniest of the widows' mites on the long road to the redemption of evil.

In the laboratories of Ordo Eirene the Manichean dollar has been developed by the Sons and Daughters of the Widow out of the spiritual forces shining upon the earth from the constellation Gemini and through the Anthroposophic Spiritual Science practiced in the Order.

If you wish to join Ordo Eirene then the joining fee is one Manichean dollar. 

This dollar you already possess. To join Ordo Eirene you must spend it in whatever marketplace you choose in whatever country of the world in which you live.

It bears the countenance of all the world's currencies; to describe it as dollar is to describe it in its most destructively evil modern manifestation. But a UK pound is as evil, so the name is dollar simply because it is universally accepted in the marketplaces of the world. 

Its number is one simply because you are one. You are one "I", and it is out of the spiritual forces of your "I" that the Manichean dollar gains its power to transform the world.

As a Christian Esotericist you will have a very subtle experience. You will be given certain insights by the spiritual world and your soul will respond with gratitude, but this will not satisfy you, it will not be enough. You will notice that the will wants to do something, wants to make this gratitude visible in a deed in the world, wants to demonstrate it.  Further it wants to demonstrate its love of humanity by sharing its insight with others; the soul wants to distribute, to become Mercury, to heal in the world, to give away the spiritual gold that has been given it, but it cannot because the insight is too young in the soul. This is the moment in the soul when the Manichean dollar is born.  It is out of this experience in the soul that the Manichean dollar assists the soul in its desire to heal our world. Although the soul cannot yet distribute its spiritual gold insights, since they must mature,  it can, in token of the gift the Spiritual world has given it, put a Manichean dollar into the world economy by buying something...that is to say spending.  Thus we change the nature of the exchange of values that is buying and selling. (see Rudolf Steiner, World Economy lectures for the explication of this exchange of values in economic science)

To make the soul's gratitude to the Spiritual world manifest as a spiritual scientific Christian deed means to divest it of the "I " and invest it with the "not I but Christ in me". 

This impersonalises it, and money is the most impersonal creation on earth.   Money, in its true nature, is a token which represents a symbol.  Its symbolic nature is of a human interchange that does not require us to enter into a karmic relationship with each other.  Thus it is a symbol of universal providence and freedom.  That is why those who possess money are much freer in the world than those who do not.  They are freer to affect the life conditions of others and to make social relationships more or less just, more or less equal, more or less moral, more or less worth living. This is the control over the scales of justice that the rich have, not by virtue of their spiritual capacities but by virtue of their possession of money alone.  But those who have this freedom have it at the expense of those who do not. 
When money is loved for its own sake then it becomes the vehicle for the evil manipulation of karma: the karma of individuals, of nations and of the earth.  The rich deny their love of money, the poor simply die for lack of a dollar to buy bread.

It is against this evil that Ordo Eirene sets its face in empirical, practical terms. 

By spending Manichean dollars now, Ordo Eirene works for the coming world currency of the true Lord of Karma and attempts to assist this to work in the world in a healing way.

Thank you for taking the time to read the membership fee literature of Ordo Eirene and welcome to all those of you who choose to join.

If you wish to inform the Order of your membership this can be done at Tibby Fowler's Bothy or you can choose to remain an entirely esoteric member.

At the present moment the two teachers active are

The Philosopher's Stone of Edinburgh

Potassium Dichromate  K2Cr2O7

The crystal has been in the School of  Chemistry at Edinburgh University for as long as anyone can remember.  It is unknown who made the crystal.  The teaching of Chemistry at Edinburgh began in 1713.  Great skill was needed to grow the cluster due to its size.  Count St. Germain's first chronicled appearances were in London and Edinburgh.  Legend has it that Count St Germain was imprisoned in Edinburgh as a suspected Jacobite spy during the Jacobite uprising of 1745.
