Living in the Light,

'Believe in the Magic'

To prepare the people for the events to come, Avatars (Sons of God) were sent to the world to instruct the people, once again, of God’s Law. Christ was one among the Sons of God that came to teach.


A Greek philosopher once said,

“Worship the gods, if you must, but your first duty is to find out who and what you are.”

By studying our accessorial roots, we can open a window to our true selves, discovering that our inheritance is far above and beyond our wildest fantasies.

The Masters of the Far East have compared our souls to a beautiful queen who has wandered from her palace. Becoming lost and disorientated, her mind clouds to her real identity. Because of this, the lost queen sheds her royal robes, dresses herself in rags and begins a new life for herself as a pauper, begging for the meager crumbs of her own inheritance.

Little known to the majority of mankind exists a special book that describes Cosmic Evolution and explains to us the origin of everything here on earth. The only name given to this parent volume is ‘The Very Old Book’. It is so old that modern antiquarians are still mystified over it’s real age. And none have determined the nature of the fabric it was written on.


Although there is only one original copy in existence, this book has been used as the foundation stone for all religions. Tradition has it that it was written in ‘Sen-Zar’, the language of the Divine Beings. These special messengers dictated it to the Sons of Light, in Central Asia, at the beginning of the Fifth Race of Man. The Book of Numbers and the Pentateuch originated from this very book.

In the beginning, all information of our Creation was passed on verbally. Accounts were told to the first children of the first Races by the Angelic messengers and teachers. As an aide to help people remember events and gods, stories were used and mythology was born. Mythology was symbolic, using symbols to represent everything from gods to deeds. One symbol could illustrate what a hundred words could not.

From the sense of wonder and awe of mythology, religion was born in an attempt to connect us to our creator. After which, religion was then transformed into theology, reducing it into codes and creeds based on each faith’s interpretation of the symbols within the myth. Theology literally changed the poetry into prose. For example, God is ‘up there’, this is what he literally ‘thinks’ and this is the way you’ve got to behave to have the proper relationship with ‘him’.

With each myth or religious doctrine, if you dig deep enough, you will find the same common seeds among them all. If you dig even deeper, you will find the common message that creates the thread that links man back to his creator.

The myth that has plagued man and woman for so long is the Creation stories. These were not born from Christianity, but carries it’s roots from the four corners of the world i.e.:



“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”


Arizona Pima Indians:

“In the beginning there was only darkness everywhere, darkness and water. And the darkness gathered thick in places, crowding together and then separating, crowding and separating…”
Hindu Upanishads: “In the beginning, there was only the Great Self reflected in the form of a person. Reflecting, it found nothing but Itself. Then it’s first word was “This I Am”.


“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply.”
Bassari People of West Africa: “Umumbotte made a human being. It’s name was Man. Unumbotte next made an antelope, name Antelope. Unumbotte made a snake, named Snake. And Unumbotte said to them, “The earth has not yet been pounded. You must pound the ground smooth where you are sitting.” Unumbotte gave them seeds of all kinds, and said, “Go plant these.”


“Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the hosts of them. And on the seventh day, God finished his work which he had done…”
Pima Indians: “I made the world and lo, the world is finished. Thus I made the world, and lo! The world is finished.”


“And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.”
Upanishads: “Then he realized, I indeed, I am this creation, for I have poured it forth from myself. In that way he became his creation. Verily, he who know this becomes in this creation a creator.”


“Have you eaten of the tree of which I commanded you not to eat?” The man said, “The woman gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.”

The Bassari:

“One day Snake said, “We too should eat these fruits. Why must we go hungry?” Antelope said, “But we don’t know anything about this fruit.” Then man and his wife took some of the fruit and ate it. Unumbotte came down from the sky and asked “Who ate the fruit?” They answered, “We did.” Unumbotte asked, “Who told you that you could eat this fruit.” They both replied, “Snake did.”


As you see, even though we are given different cultures, and each living in a different land, the stories are very similar in nature.


In each case the culprit seems to be Snake. But Snake should not be taken ‘literally’. Here Snake is used symbolically representing ‘the fall into generation’ of lives reincarnation. Just as the moon shed’s it’s shadow to be born again, so does the serpent shed it’s skin.

Snake, in most cultures was given a positive interpretation. In India, for example, the cobra is held sacred and the mythological Serpent King is next to Buddha. It represents the power of life engaged in the field of time and of death, yet eternally alive. The world is but it’s shadow, the falling skin.

It is also revered in the American Indian cultures and thought of as a very important power to be friends with. The Hopi have a snake dance where they take the snakes in their mouths and make friends with it.
The Burmese have a snake priestess who brings rain to her people by climbing up a mountain path, calling a king cobra from his den and kissing him three times on the nose. He we see the cobra as the Giver of Life, the Giver of Rain, as a divine and positive figure.

Man is dual in nature. One nature is of the Lower Self, represented by Snake. The other nature is Spiritual, represented by the Eagle. The Serpent is earth bound and the Eagle has access to spiritual flight. When the two come together, you then find the symbol of the Dragon. With this transformation, the Serpent overcomes his Earthly plight. He overcomes the re-cycling of life here on earth.


Through out all points of this earth, you see the universal sign of the Dragon, whether it be Polynesian, Iroquois, Egyptian or Chinese, the image is the same as well as the message behind it.

According to the Ancient Creation stories, the First Race of the evolutionary round of mankind, started during the Age of Satya Yuga, known as the Golden Age of Man. In the beginning, the ‘collective’ man, Adam Solars, had no physical substance. They were of an astral form, an image, and astral double of their lunar ancestors, the seven Pistris, who reigned over them up to the Third Race or Round. The Imperishable Sacred Island was the cradle for this first man and will also be the dwelling place for the last divine mortal chosen for the future seed of humanity (Genesis 1 gives the account of this first creation)

The First Race gradually evolved into the Second and came to be known as the Adam/Eve or Jod/Heva. Their ethereal (spiritual) bodies of the First Race became clothed with a shell of physical substance. They inhabited the Hyperborean Continent during the Miocene Age, then having a tropical Climate. The Greeks of Homer claimed that this continent was ‘The Lands of the Gods’, the favorite home of Apollo, the God of Light. (An allegorical reference to this second creation can be found in Genesis II)

The Second Race eventually emerged into the Third Race or Round. In the early stage of the Third Race, mankind was Hermaphrodite (two separate bodies attached together as one). To ensure the survival of the human seed for the future races or man, it became a logical necessity to separate the woman, biblically known as Eve from man, biblically known as Adam. (It was only at this point of our evolution did we begin reproduction as we know it today.)

The Third Race falls easily into the same time frame as the Tertiary Period, placing mankind here as the counterpoise of the Pterodactyl and Plesiosaurus, biblically and myth logically referred to as Dragons, flying camels and sea monsters.


The first discovery giving credence to these accounts was in Germany, when archeologists discovered a semi-preserved Pterodactyle measuring seventy-five feet in length with vigorous wings attached to it’s reptilian body. *see picture (In the Book of Isaiah, we red ‘the viper and the flying serpent gave the land trouble and anguish.

With the separation of the sexes, man was then able to procreate his own kind. In the Generation of Adam, Genesis V, we see that the first son born to Adam, in his own likeness, was Seth.


This birth sets off the beginning of the Fourth Race. Take note here that in Generation of Adam there is no reference to Caine and Abel, with good reason. Caine and Abel were not the sons of Adam and Eve. They were their allegorical permutations! Caine represents the male, the tiller of the earth. Abel represents the female, Eve, the keeper of the sheep or ‘vessel for the seed of mankind.’

The Sons of God walked with man in those earlier days, protecting and guiding him, both physically and mentally. Through the use of their ‘spiritual’ third eye, man was given the joys of telepathy and spiritual perception. From these stories of the Fourth Race, we come to know the mythical Cyclops. Through time, accounts of the ‘spiritual third eye’ became confused with that of a physical feature, or that of a third physical eye found in the center of the forehead.

In the Fourth Race a double evolution took place. The evolution of the Spiritual Dhyanis and the evolution of mankind. The Dhyais, Sons of Wisdom, were intelligences or conscious spirits that needed to experience further wisdom for their heavenly evolution. This could ONLY be achieved through the human consciousness. BUT up until this point of time, man did not have this ‘spark’ of consciousness.

To accomplish the further evolutions of the two, the Dhyanis needed to enter the physical body of man and create the ‘spark’ of conscious intelligence. This took place on the half-way point of the minor Manyantara Cycle. With the ingression of the Dhyanis, intellectual activities were created in man, as well as the ability to speak. The ‘spark’ of intelligence worked greater within the more advanced man than it did for the lesser advanced. And for some, the ‘spark’ didn’t work at all and they remained ‘mindless’.

Genesis VI refers to the people of that time as the ‘Sons of the Sons of God’, the Giants of Old and the Men of renown. When mankind was given the ‘spark’ of intelligence, or (as the Bible eloquently states, ‘ate the forbidden fruit’), he became dual in nature. His first nature was a spiritual endowment, giving him the sense of his divinity. The second nature was of the ‘lower man’, bearing the instinctual patterns attributed to the animal kingdom. The struggle between the two natures began there and has continued up to today.

The ones able to conquer their lower principles by obtaining mastery over their bodies, joined the ‘Sons of Light’, known biblically as Able/Eve. Those who fell victims to their lower nature joined the forces of the ‘Sons of Darkness’, known as Caine/Adam, falling into generations of rebirth, Karma.

Up until this time, mankind lived in Paradise. He had no reason for religion, because he was one with his Creator, feeling more like that of a child to his or her father. Gods walked the earth and mixed freely with mortal man, but when Adam fell into generation, the Gods departed (became invisible to man). With the desire to bring back the gods into their lives, religion was born and sacrifices were offered.

The Atlanteans of the Fourth Race were the progenies of the semi-divine man of Adam and delivered the first sacrifice to the ‘God of Matter’. Referring back again to Genesis IV, Caine, ‘The Tiller of Earth’, sacrificed ‘the fruit of the earth’, while Abel brought to God ‘the first of his flock’. THE MYSTERY OF CAIN AND ABEL, explains to us that the murder of Abel by Caine was not that of ‘taking of a life’, but the ‘shedding of blood’. We also learn the identity of the Fallen Angels as Humanity itself and the demons are the Five Deadly Passions of Humanity.

Upon receiving ‘conscious thought’, man started developing the negative characteristics of desire and greed, which then began to contaminate the pure spirit within. Through the thoughts of greed and desire, we fell into generation. Worship degenerated into self-worship and then into Phallicism. Here we find mankind’s first war, shedding the blood of it’s own kind. As man’s mind opened, so did his eyes and the sense of desire. Seeing his brother’s wives more fair to look upon, battles were called, brothers were killed and the women were taken for their own.

Before the Deluge, references are made to the ‘Divine Dynasties, which preceded the ‘human kings’. Through the guidance of divine rulers, large cities were built, art and science were cultivated.


The knowledge of astronomy, architecture and mathematics were given to mankind. Co-existing with the cultured and civilized man that had received the ‘spark’ of the Dhyanis were the ‘mindless ones’. Although they had received the spark, it did not take, leaving them without thought and ape-like. To allow this mindless race to die out naturally, a law was created strictly prohibiting the mixed breeding of spark and non-spark individuals. Although this was for the good of the future of mankind, the laws were broken, creating a new branch of evolution.

This was the point in time that the intelligence of the soul first began to develop into an active state of self-consciousness. We begin now seeing man spreading out into other regions and developing their own cultures and civilizations. Some chose to live in the divine cities and enjoy the culture thriving within. Others partook to living nomadic lives venturing continuously forward in search of new lands to rear their families. And then there were still the mindless man/creatures that lived a simple life, barely knowing how to build a fire, let alone protect themselves from the ravishes of the world. (Easter Island’s gigantic statues still stand today, giving witness to this time and to the gods that ruled the earth and it’s people.)

Here we find Genesis’s Race of Giants that we know today as the Atlateans of Lank and the Greek Titans. A race of giants should not be hard to believe, considering that the Titans, legendary for their size and superhuman physical strength, lived during the Mesozoic and Cenozoic Period, known as the Age of Gigantic Creatures and Dinosaurs. The Great Deluge wiped out most of this giant race, but according to biblical accounts, some did survive.

Remnants of the Anakim, a giant race, lived in Gaza, Gath and Ashdod during the time of Joshua (Joshua 11:21),

“And at that time came Joshua and cut off the Anakims from the mountains, from Hebron, from Debir, from Anab, from all the mountains of Judah and from all the mountains of Israel. Joshua destroyed them utterly with their cities.” (Joshua 11:22)”Thee was none of the Gath and in Ashdod there remained (remnants).”

We have all heard the story of David slewing the Philistine giant, Goliath.


The accounts from Numbers and Joshua describe him to be nine to eleven feet tall. The Book of Samuel tells of other Raphaims, “David and his men also killed three of them besides Goliath”, Benob, whose spear weighed three hundred shekels. Saph, a Philistine giant, of the Race of Rapha. The brother of Goliath, The Gittite of Gath, whom was a giant with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot. (Excavations of mounds and caves have today yielded skeletons of these people, showing heights of nine to twelve feet tall. In a Himalayan cave, archeologists found the remains of giant humans and animals.)

The face of the earth has changed many times before it became what we see of it today. Since humanity first came into existence, there has been at least four axial disturbances or wobbles, changing the entire appearance of our earth. As continents sank into the sea, others appeared. Severe climate changes caused a great migration of both man and animal. This was a time of ‘survival of the fittest’. The weak died off and their sub-races became extinct, with their cultures dying with them. The strong survived to create another race and carry on their cultures.

The Delta of Egypt and Northern Africa, during the Fourth Race, belonged to Europe. An upheaval of the continent changed the entire face of Europe and caused the submersion of Atlantis. The final disappearance of the Atlantean lands coincide with the rising of the Himalayas and the Alps, the North American inland sea and inversions of the earth’s magnetic pole. It is during these catalytic events that the stories of the great deluges (floods) began appearing around the world. Beginning in the earliest Tertiary Periods and continuing for a long period of time, these disturbances eventually destroyed the last remnant of Plato’s Atlantis.

The Fifth Race had emerged from the Fourth before the final destruction of Atlantis. Specific archeological discoveries have shown that the citizens of Atlantis and the Minoans were on in the same. The fabled apocalypse that sank the last remnant of Atlantis overnight is supported through a trail of evidence, leading to the small island of Santorini. The ruins of the Minoan Land, 75 km north of Crete, can still be seen lying under the waters near Santorini. In 1470 B.C., the volcanic mountain erupted, filling the sky with ash and blotting out the sun. It’s eruption was so powerful, the lands of Egypt were sprayed with fire from the sky, a rain of ash and a giant tsunami wave. (The disasters resulting from Santorini are what is biblically known as the plagues of Moses.)

In the beginning of the Fifth Race, The Gods re-descended from the heavens and re-established kingdoms on Earth.


They communicated once again with man, re-establishing the laws to govern by and put into the ears of the prophets things to come. One language was given to all and man was taught to write and keep records once again. These records were recorded on papyri, monuments and clay tablets. The Egyptians used the ‘divine’ knowledge to build pyramids. The exterior of these pyramids illustrates the given principles of geometry, astrology and astronomy. The interior walls witnessed the initiation of the great knowledge of the ancients.

The late Bronze Age is believed to be the Canaanite Period and the Iron Age started the Israelite Period. In this latter Age, the Hebrew practice of monotheism was established through their prophet, Moses. Monotheism however, was not the belief of the populous. The worshipping of multiple Gods still remained the accepted form of worship until the days of Pope Constantine.

During his reign, the doors to the distant past and it’s history of our roots became closed to us. There were those that dedicated their entire lives to the destruction of all evidence of the ancient history. From that time on, any teaching of this history was labeled with ‘taboo’ innuendos and became known as ‘occult’ or ‘magic’. Their attempts for total elimination, however, were not completely successful. But successful enough to darken the pages of the Pre-Christian Era with bigotry and intolerance.

Thousands and perhaps millions of MSS were destroyed in the Holy Crusades. Monuments with inscriptions and pictorial symbols were pulverized to dust. Bands of hermits and ascetics roamed from cities to country sides, from mountain to deserts, with the mission of seeing and destroying anything that was not of the ‘new faith’ of monotheism. Islams and Christians alike, so loyal to their faith, declared war against anyone not willing to obey their doctrines. They won the loyalties of the conquered people by the point of a sword, turning the earth red with the blood of any that opposed them.

Cycles, abiding by the Law of Time and Motion, were designed to govern our lives. They create and recreate events that influence our thought patterns. By studying our cyclic history we can achieve a greater understanding of where we are today and how we fit into the plan of our Creator.

Over two thousand years ago, we came into the Piscean age, known to be a negative cycle. In this Age, the strong ruled over the weak. To prepare the people for the events to come, Avatars (Sons of God) were sent to the world to instruct the people, once again, of God’s Law. Christ was one among the Sons of God that came to teach.


He taught us to know man by looking to the heavens and gave to his disciples the Laws that governed nature and man. The earlier Christians understood the wisdom of astrology, which can be seen interplaying symbolically throughout their traditions. For example, we see the Christians adapting the Piscean sign of the fish to represent their new religion. Pisces rules ‘the feet’, which was symbolically honored through the Christian purification act of ‘washing of the feet’.

The early Christians and their traditions were later replaced by more contemporary ideas of the times. Through the thousands of years since Christianity began, the bible has been revised so many times, that much of the truism of the early church has been lost to us or at the very best misinterpreted.
