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-
