FOUR TS
(First Principles • Sophia Aeterna)


The stages of (re)discovering the ancient Cosmolgical Religion follows the path of the ‘four Ts.’

Theology => Theosophy => Teleology => Telesthesia



Stage 1: THEOLOGY
Systematic development of religious theories and disciplines which assist entry level initiates to build a foundation of knowledge based in true principles (both spiritual as well as scientific) based strictly in eternal cosmological principles. (Chokmah)

~Commitment


Stage 2: THEOSOPHY
Recognition that a knowledge of God requires more than a correct concept of what a God is, and that the goal is to become a god. One must also understand what God himself had to do to reach His own (primordial) state of at-one-ness: spirit and body conjoined.

This is the stage where a ritual baptism would be performed, as the initiate symbolically separates themselves from the illusion of Maya.

~Spiritual Transition


Stage 3: TELEOLOGY
At this stage all natural phenomena is recognized as serving the higher purposes of God and The ALL. The soul’s understanding expands as one seeks to become aware of, and harmonize with the universe’s purposes. This awareness is not merely empirical, and assists us to learn to hear, feel and see through our Greater Eye. Without aligning our soul to such an end, little further enlightenment is possible.

This tuning follows the total commitment to esoteric principles, beginning with initiation, and ends when the initiate becomes adept at listening to the whispering of the Spirit (Binah), and becomes able to experience gnosis directly from the akasha (aether) on a regular basis.

~Atunement


Stage 4:
TELESTHESIA
Entering the state of attunement with this divine purpose (moving from initiate to adept) increased spiritual sensitivity begins, ushering in perception of distant occurrences (both past, present and future) and where the adept becomes an active, conscious participant with God in bringing to pass the “Immortality and Eternal Life” of mankind.

~At-One-Ment


Goal: ETERNAL LIFE
And so the final result of following the 4 “T”s would be “Eternal Life,” or continuous consciousness without a loss of contiguous memory of all of ones life experiences. This can only be realized as one attains a state of on-going “communion” (at-one-ment) with God, and maintains that state at all times.

This is “immortality” coupled to consciousness, and rests upon a foundation of work on behalf of mankind. This state is a state of GODHOOD, and can be referred to as exaltation.

Without a true understanding of the nature of human consciousness, and of its final attainment of Kether Sephira (godhead or godhood), it is impossible to begin the climb to at-one-ment. We need to know what the goal is, and how to attain this goal, and to commit to it 100%, or we will “die like men,” and repeat yet another incarnation — settling for our chosen level of spiritual vibration and light, but falling short of total at-one-ment with God. This is our spiritually inherited “kingdom” and it is determined by our collective, on-going choices. And so it is through the true understanding of what it takes to reach at-one-ment, that we can begin the long journey home. This is why require a correct Theology as a starting point, and a process that will ultimately bring us to full enlightenment.

This work alone could take a lifetime, and this simple aspect of the four-fold path presents its own problems. However, one must either re-discover true cosmo-religious teachings of the various ancient esoteric core religions (before they became exoteric sects), or one must re-build a foundation from scratch. This latter choice is our goal.

The first and second Ts (or tiers) might be found through personal study, prayer and sacrifice, over many years, but the third and fourth tier (Teleology) usually requires one’s participation in a legitimate occult order. A correct understanding of Teleology requires that a person receive a direct epiphany, also known as a transfiguration, mystical experience, experiencing the “clear light of the void,” “seeing God face-to-face, and doubtless as many terms as there have been ancient orders. All of these expressions (used as they are originally intended) refer to the singular experience of a complete, and controlled ego-dissolution.

The few extant and truly occult records, are few. The Kolbrin (really a collection of books) was the ‘bible’ studied and stored at the scriptorium at the Glastonbury Abbey, until the arson fire of 1185 CE. Kept by a line of trustees, the surviving texts were released first publicly in 1910, and the book is now available in to english language versions. This is one of the rare books that still contains a description of one of the ancient ego-dissolution ceremonies, utilizing secret sacrament (a concoction whose recipe is not explained, only described) which is pretty clearly a combination more than one entheogen. The three day experience described could only have occurred on such a combination of entheogens, likely potentiated with an MAOI source. Due to the geography of this story (the Great Pyramid in Egypt), this would likely have been a Syrian Rue extract.

We interject this pearl of wisdom at this point in our explanation, because these ancient rituals of “rebirthing” were the most sacred of ceremonies, and their secrets were never given to the uninitiated. The Kykeon, a simpler solution used for the same purpose, during the biannual initiation rituals in Greece, known as the Eleusian Mysteries, also created a prolonged state of ego-dissolution. The shorter-acting hallucinogens that occurred naturally, used by themselves, would not have been as likely to create the extended temporal ego-dissolution experiences required for a meaningful spiritual “integration.”

Such potentiated entheogenic ceremonies are now known to have been conducted around the world. The well known Ayahuasca ceremonies of the Amazon peoples — popularized due to the seminal research by the Mckenna brothers — are but one example that is now widely understood outside of occult circles. Various Phalaris grasses were employed, in combination with Peganum harmala in ceremonies in ancient Etruscan temples, and at Eleusis. In Egypt, and the hidden city of Petra, it is apparent that the acacia tree bark (another potent sources of DMT) was also employed.
