From old Egypt have come the fundamental esoteric and occult teachings which have so strongly influenced the philosophies of all races, nations and peoples, for several thousand years. Egypt, the home of the Pyramids and the Sphinx, was the birthplace of the Hidden Wisdom and Mystic Teachings. India, Persia, Chaldea, Medea, China, Japan, Assyria, Greece, Rome, and other ancient countries borrowed from her Secret Doctrine.
In ancient Egypt was located the Great Lodge of Lodges of the Mystics. At the doors of her Temples entered the Neophytes who afterward, as Hierophants, Adepts, and Masters, traveled to the four corners of the earth, carrying with them the precious knowledge which they were ready, anxious, and willing to pass on to those who were ready to receive the same.²
The Great Pyramid of Giza was built in perfect alignment with the stars, most notably Sirius and Orion, in which the light of each star cast a beam directly in through the queen's and the king's chambers. Each of the seven chambers of the Pyramid was known by the name of one of the planets.⁴
The heavens, the constellations, signs and planets mean one thing to the Hierarchy and another thing to the astronomers and still another thing to the astrologers, whilst they are simply bewildering galaxies of light to the average citizen.³
The brightest star in the night sky - Sirius is 20 times brighter than our own sun. A stars luminosity reflects its own spiritual evolutionary development; Sirius...the emanating source of Love/Wisdom into our solar system.
The Pleiades - An aggregation of seven energies which are connected with the active intelligent aspect of logoic expression, and influence the form side of all manifestation.¹
Alcyone...one of the seven Pleiades, is the star around which our universe revolves.
Procyon - The brightest star in the constellation of Canis Minor ('little dog'), always near it's brighter brother, Sirius and rises before Sirius in mid-northern latitudes. Known to the Mesopotamians as 'The star of the crossing of the 'water - dog,' as it lies near their River of the Heaven...the Milky Way.
