Who are the followers of the Esoteric?




To answer this question you must first understand what the word “Esoteric” means and then we will work our way out from there. First the definition:

Esoteric - (es-o-ter-ic, adjective – Intended for or only likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest) (1)

The secret and mystery of the esoteric is the fact that next to nobody seems to know what this “specialized knowledge or interest” actually is. This specialized knowledge is normally referred to as “recondite” knowledge, which means that it is dealing with abstruse or profound subjects that are concealed because they require special knowledge to be understood.(2)

This special knowledge is what was/is taught in the mystery schools and religions we have all heard and wondered about. This is where the problem lies because the actual members and followers of the esoteric are forbidden to speak of it, with anybody outside the circle. This makes it next to impossible for anybody to actually get their hands on any real information about this recondite knowledge or what exactly goes on behind the closed doors of these mystery religions and schools.

As many of you are aware, the secret to understanding this mystery of this recondite knowledge lies in the symbols that we see every single day of our lives. The most famous of this is of course the all-seeing-eye and the pyramid or triangle. The reason is because the symbols themselves hide the secret that everybody is looking for. The website The Vigilant Citizen (http://vigilantcitizen.com/) does a great job at explaining and showing you many of the different layers of the esoteric symbolism that we are assaulted with daily from the media, but even this site is missing the final piece to the puzzle.

Now, I am going to say something totally different than what you are normally told or think about the symbols. The first thing to understand is that almost every single “occult” symbol you have ever seen, is not (and I can’t stress this enough) “NOT OCCULT” but is actually “Esoteric” in origin. The whole “occult” thing is nothing but a cover and a distraction to keep everybody looking in the wrong direction. This is where the first of many mistakes start, because right off-the-bat almost everybody has the wrong idea about the meaning of the symbols.

This is something that I have to admit that I don’t quite understand, because it isn’t like it is some big secret on where these symbols come from or who has and is using them. All of the so-called occult symbols all come from and are used by the very same group, Freemasonry. It is basically a no-brainer and it isn’t like the Masons deny it or hide it, in fact they openly speak of the symbolism and how important it is to them as an organization. The only thing they do deny is the true meaning behind the symbolism and why it is so important to them.  

The only think I can think of is that it must be because Freemasonry has had a outstanding PR program over last couple of hundred years convincing the general public that they are nothing more than a “fraternity” and not what they have always been a “religious body” (3) of learned men and builders. Freemasonry describes itself as ‘beautiful system of morality, veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols’ (4). Which is just a very elegant way of saying they are an esoteric group.

Which this in turn, means they are by definition; a mystery school or religion that holds esoteric beliefs about recondite knowledge. Now the real mystery lies in the fact that nobody knows what the Masons actually believe and the truth is, the Masons are never going to tell.

This is where the real confusion begins because the vast majority of people are under the false idea that the Masons are some type of “club” and not the esoteric religion they truly are. This is where everybody has made their mistake with the symbols; they are not occult symbols being used by some fraternity or club, but are actually esoteric religious symbols that hold a hidden story of recondite knowledge.

This is the first of the many secrets to the symbols and one of the reasons why you should to read The Forbidden Knowledge of Enoch. Because The Forbidden Knowledge of Enoch explains for the very first time the recondite knowledge that is told through the symbols that is the heart of the ideology that is the religion of the esoteric, better known as the mystery religion of Freemasonry.   -RJ-

The forbidden knowledge of the artifacts...

In The Forbidden Knowledge of Enoch I use a number of ancient artifacts to explain the hidden esoteric story. These artifacts are one of the primary keys to understanding what the esoteric story is. One of the primary points to the esoteric story is that it has at its core; the idea that there was an advanced civilization on this planet thousands of years ago.

We have all heard the stories about some long lost highly-advanced civilization or city that came thousands of years before our own. The legendary city of Atlantis and its destruction is probably the most famous of all the many myths out there. But out of all the stories, legends, and myths, there just doesn’t seem to be any evidence to support the idea of an “Atlantis” with advanced technology like aircraft or skyscrapers existed at any time in the past before our own.

And that is the problem with the whole idea of some long lost highly-advanced civilization or city, there just doesn’t seem to be any evidence that it could be true. I don’t think there is one expert or scholar out there that would disagree with the statement; that we haven’t found any evidence, to support the idea that there was an technologically advanced civilization on this planet thousands of years ago. That there were no “flying machines” or advanced modern-like “Atlantis” cities existing in the world until our own modern age. In fact the experts and the scholars say that they will never accept the idea of an “Atlantis” until somebody provides some type of physical evidence that supports this idea.

I do believe that is fair; why should anybody, expert or lay alike accept anything less than physical evidence about something like “Atlantis” or similar claims? Just like the late Carl Sagan said, “If you are going to make extraordinary claims, you better have extraordinary evidence to back it up”. And something like “Atlantis” is an extraordinary claim, so it will take some extraordinary evidence to convince them or anybody.

At least that is what the “experts” would like you to believe. What would you say if I told you that the experts and scholars have most likely been lying to us? Not only that, but I can prove that they have been lying to us the whole time. I would also like to state that if the so-called “experts” haven’t been knowingly lying to us all, then they must be the most incompetent people of all time.

Even though I am only an amateur researcher and new author, I have discovered something about the ancient artifacts that is almost beyond words to describe. I think it is proof that there was a technologically advanced civilization on this planet, thousands of years ago. In addition I also think it proves that the experts have been knowingly lying to us or are incompetent.

I will only be presenting one artifact at this time, but it should be noted that there are hundreds of other artifacts that show similar scenes and all of them are displayed in the same incorrect manner. This artifact is from The Morgan Library & Museum collection and is a Stone Foundation Tablet. (http://www.themorgan.org/collections/works/WrittenInStone/default.asp)

It is claimed that it is inscribed in cuneiform text with the name and titles of King Ur-Namma in Sumerian. The experts say it is from the Third Dynasty of Ur in Mesopotamia from around 21st century BC.

The same experts claim the inscription reads: "Ur-Namma, king of Ur, king of Sumer and Akkad, the one who built the temple of Enlil".

When you first look at this tablet you probably think that the experts know what they are talking about. But if you take the same image from above and rotate it 90 degrees to the right, you will get an entirely different picture.

Look closely, do you see it now? (Hint: runs from right to left) Can you see the modern looking buildings? Do you see the three ships flying in the center? What I find amazing is the fact that the artist went to the trouble to show the little windows on the ships. So what we have here isn’t an inscription about king Ur-Namma, but a small series of pictures showing us a modern city with aircraft flying above.

I find it next to impossible to believe that every single “expert” and “scholar” of the last 200 years have missed this. So hard to believe that I think they have intentionally done this on purpose to hide the truth from everybody.

I would have to say this is the proof that everybody has been looking for, wouldn’t you agree? It is pretty hard to deny, when you can see it with your own eyes.

Like I said before, this is only one of hundreds of similar artifacts from the Middle East. Over the last few years I have found that it appears that almost all of the ancient cuneiform artifacts are displayed in the same incorrect manner as the above artifact. It also appears that the “experts” have just taken the cuneiform artifacts and rotated them 90 degrees to the left and then told everybody that they say something else. I believe this is done in order to hide the real information right in front of our faces. The vast majority of the cuneiform inscriptions are not words but pictures and these little pictures are telling a story, the esoteric story that all but a few have forgotten. -RJ-

To truly understand the story on the artifacts and the rest of the hidden esoteric story, you need to read The Forbidden Knowledge of Enoch by RJ von-Bruening and begin your journey into the known and unknown of what you thought you knew.

Who was Enoch?




Who was Enoch?

That is one of the primary questions I have been asked since my book has become available.

I would have to say that Enoch is one of the more mysterious individuals from the Judeo-Christian tradition and also from a historical point of view.

First a little background information. Enoch is spoken of in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. He is spoken of in the Book of Genesis (Gen 5:18-24) as the son Jared and as the father of Methuselah. He is more famously known as the great-grandfather of Noah and that it is traditionally thought that he never died, because he was taken by God. There are three references to Enoch in the New Testament (Luke 3:37, Hebrews 11:5, Epistle of Jude 1:14).

Within the Judeo-Christian tradition it is believed that Enoch was a scribe and was taught how to write by the Host of Heaven. It is also said that he was a favorite of God (which Enoch calls the Ancient of Days) and that he had some type of one-on-one relationship with this Ancient of Days and the Host of Heaven. He does appear to be rather unique in the fact that he seems to be the only person that was personally taken by God himself, not one of his angels or in whirlwind like the prophet Elijah. Outside of that, pretty much everything else we know comes from the Book of Enoch itself and the early history of Christianity and the Catholic Church.

It is known that prior to 364 A.D. and the Council of Laodicea, the Book of Enoch, (which at that time it was known as the “Secrets of Enoch”) was used and accepted as scripture by many early Christians. The Book of Enoch was known and used centuries before the birth of Christ. There are many that considered it more Christian in its theology that the Jewish tradition it comes from.

Much of what was written during the early history of Christianity came from the “learned fathers of the church” as they explained and defended church teachings to the masses. Much of the earliest literature is filled with many references to this mysterious “Book of Enoch”.  In the early 2nd century the “Epistle Barnabus” uses much of the Book of Enoch. Over the next couple centuries the Book of Enoch was used by Origin, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, and even Clement of Alexandria. Tertullian even called the book “Holy Scripture”. Many early Christian churches included it in their canon, with the Ethiopic Church being the only one left today that still includes it in their canon.   

 It was a well known and widely read book in the first three centuries after Christ. After the Council of Laodicea in 364 A.D. it, along with a number of other books were banned by the authorities of the church. From that point on, it just gradually passed out of circulation, until it became a lost book to most of the Western world. The council also decided on what books would and would not be included in the western Bible.

As I have studied Enoch, I think the two primary reasons the Book of Enoch was banned by the Council was because, one it revealed too much about the fall of the angels for the common person (which was a point argued at the Council). And two; that it presents what would be a very dangerous idea to the early Catholic Church because of the way it is written. It is written in the first person and speaks of the one-on-one relationship(s) between Enoch, God, and the rest of the Host of Heaven. It gives the idea that an individual person could get to know God personally, without the help of the Church, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that this would be quite a threat to the early Catholic Church.    

It wasn’t until the 1400s and the Protestant Reformation in the early 1500s, that the modern world became aware of this book. In the late 1400’s rumors began to spread around Europe that somewhere a copy of this long lost Book of Enoch still existed. There were a number of books that claimed to the long lost text, but all of them were later to be found to be forgeries.

The actual return of the long lost Book of Enoch to the western world has been credited to the famous explorer James Bruce. In 1773 he returned from six years of exploring Abyssinia with three Ethiopic copies of the book. In 1821 it was translated into English by Richard Laurence and published. In 1912 the famous R.H. Charles edition was published. Over the last hundred years several portions of the Greek text have surfaced. In addition seven fragmentary copies of the Aramaic text were discovered in Cave #4 of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Since its return to the Western world this book has been the focus of much controversy and mystery. Most of it appears to come from the fact that most people have heard about this book, but next to nobody has actually read this book. And I think the ones that have read it normally misunderstand what they are reading.

The reason for this is misunderstanding is because the Book of Enoch is actually the key to unlocking the mystery of the esoteric and their belief system. I think this is the real reason on why it was removed in 364 AD and the large effort over the last 1,650 years to keep it out the hands of the masses. This book actually contains the secret story that provides the basis for the esoteric doctrine and belief system. This esoteric doctrine and belief system is the missing piece to the puzzle that is our modern world and the source of all the wild and not-so-wild conspiracy theories that we hear about all the time.  - RJ-

To learn how the Book of Enoch is actually the key to unlocking the mystery of the esoteric you can find the answer in the new and fascinating book THE FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE OF ENOCH by RJ von-Bruening.
