SOLAR LODGE and AFTER SOLAR LODGE
Way After SOLAR LODGE
Return of the Mysteries
The Story Continues
"Three times this process is repeated"
Flashdance II was a reflection of the first ceremony, with a new twist:
A horizontal Tree of Life was set up in a secluded, grassy backyard, complete with an ovoid circle and 10 altars - each altar bearing it's respective magickal instruments. A lengthy ceremony was performed by various officers, and attended by a few selected non-initiates (to represent humanity). Attending as officers were Shiva, Lightblazer, Mont and his wife, Estar, and Katherine (at Malkuth, the Earth sphere, as the primary representative of humanity).
The rite included Banishing, the Invocation of Thoth, Evocation of the spirits of the 4 elements into the 4 triangles that were set up outside the circle at the 4 cardinal directions, equilibration of contending forces, and (the central act of the rite) the reading of The Throne Speech.
The objective of this ceremony, as well as all the other ceremonies performed or that were yet to be performed, was to influence the mass consciousness with White Magick, that is, to promote and advance the evolutionary process. Rituals were never undertaken to gain money, to slay enemies and troublesome neighbors, or to further positions of power. The group was not the Illuminati; they were agents of the Galactic Federation of Light Forces, acting in concert with the Avatar of Synthesis. Unlike the "unchartered" origins of Solar Lodge, they actually had (and still have) a "Charter" . . .
The Throne Speech was a lengthy, verbal dissertation aimed at C.O.G.A. and The United Nations. It was transcribed from an original speech delivered by Mr. White. It announced the Cosmic Changeover of Global Affairs, and called for consciousness, Individual and National alike, to set aside differences in support of the incoming, spiritual energies. Certain international events that followed seemed significant. Oh Well! Surely, it was only a "coincidence."

The Tibetan Connection
In the Spring of 1988, when he first heard about the concept of Empowerment, Shiva was not impressed. His years of study and discipline in the metaphysical and spiritual fields had shown him that one advances on the Path by work and not by joining ashrams and orders, nor by the payment of fees.
He supposed that people who wanted relatively large fees for "empowering" people were in the same class as TV ministers, Tibetan Rinpoches, and assorted Training seminars that his experience had shown to be quite ineffective (especially after six weeks or more).
There was only one catch in his supposition: He received a demonstration of Empowerment energy ... and it was strong!
In 1985, Matt was teaching a music class when an Oriental man (Lama Xin) arrived in his classroom. Lama Xin indicated that he was there to give Matt something. Then, with Matt's consent, he performed an Empowerment, transmitting all the Levels of this lineage at one time. When Matt asked Lama Xin why he came directly to his music class, Xin replied, "Because you are too dense to be contacted in subtler ways."
Matt said that he was severely disoriented for almost three years. During this time, he had to sort out and organize the multitude of energies and their associated Levels.
It must be understood that the energies we are discussing are far more powerful than the popular Reiki system. Reiki was developed in Japan by Dr. Usui while he was meditating in the wilderness, while this Tibetan system has been transmitted for centuries directly from person to person.
This Tibetan Empowerment System had/has nine Levels, plus five "veils" and three additional "Enhancements"
Estar and Shiva both became fully empowered in this Tibetan system, and their branch was called Sirius after all these are Xin (star) empowerments.
The first three Levels of this Empowerment system directly correspond to the universal, three-degree, initiatory system. But with this difference: They are stepped down. That is, they are a reflection of the full-blown Tree of Life system of Initiation. They are also safer and are suitable for the general public - one is not taken apart and reassembled as in the full-blown initiatory system. One experiences a permanent, but slight shift in consciousness not the major shifts that are experienced when one progresses in a system like the A\ A\
So Sirius was never promoted as an initiatory system, even though there was/is a subdued element of initiation inherent in the process.
The End of the Mysteries
With the beginning of the Sirius system, all other metaphysical interests dropped away. Shiva stopped promoting, or even speaking about, Star System, The A\ A\ , and the Initiatory Path. After Solar lodge, he had vowed not to use any of the Order of the Temple structures or ceremonies.
Estar had reached the Star System 5° (Tiphereth, the sphere of the Sun) and was busy working on Angelic Invocation. Mont, Lightblazer, and Estar had long since taken the oath of a Magister. Mont steadfastly refused to accept students; Lightblazer continued to channel for individuals and groups, but took no formal students; Estar had more students than Solar Lodge (public students, not initiatory students). Shiva was now content to simply confer Empowerments in exchange for modest fees, and to teach metaphysical subjects in a scientific and non-mysterious manner.
Of course, this was all to change with The Return of the Mysteries.
The Ceremony in Mexicali
In March, 1989, Estar invited several people to a magickal ceremony in Mexicali, to be held at the home of one of his students.
Shiva and a few of his students, drove to El Centro, California, checked into a motel, met up with Mont and his wife, drove to Calexico, California, and walked across the Mexican border. They were told to wait at a particular intersection in Mexicali, where they would be picked up and transported to the ceremony. This was another one of those adventures in which nobody had any idea where they were being taken.
It's true Mexico is slow. They waited about one hour past the scheduled pick-up time, and then they were finally picked up and driven some long distance, to end up entering a gate in a high-security, barbed-wire fence, complete with armed military guards.
They drove slowly to the home of Estar's student. It turned out that she was the wife of the Minister of Agriculture for Baja California, and they were inside a security compound where all of the high-ranking government officials lived.
They conferred, and it was decided that Mont would perform the banishing ritual, Shiva would perform the Invocation of Thoth, and Estar would do something. So here they were, doing the same old ceremonies, attended by a large group of ladies who were interested in this sort of thing, but who were mostly the wives of the Ministers of Mexican government.
The ceremony went smoothly. Estar's contribution turned out to be an Enochian chant, delivered in his deep, magickal, sub-bass voice. It was all good and well-done.
After that, Estar disappeared for a while on a Magickal Retreat, wherein he performed the Enochian Calls of the Thirty Aethers, and ended up formulating an entirely new empowerment system called StarLord. We will return to Estar's adventures later in this book.
The Sirius Connection
What about Sirius?
Alice Bailey refers to Sirius in most of her texts. She indicates that it is the home of the Great White Lodge, the overshadowing parent of our planetary hierarchy, The White Brotherhood.
Kenneth Grant, the head of a British lineage, indicated that the "Silver Star" (Astrum Argenteum) of the A\A\ is Sirius.
A dual star system, Sirius was sacred to the Ancient Aegyptians. It has received great popularity in our contemporary, metaphysical literature, usually under titles proclaiming "The Sirius Mystery."
The Resurfacing of Frater Kuat
Mont and his wife and his three children were living in San Diego.
Mont took it into his mind to contact Frater Kuat, who was known to also be living in San Diego, where he had lived all of his life. And so it came to pass that he was reunited with Kuat.
Kuat became affiliated with Solar Lodge in 1967, when they hosted "A Night on the Nile," a grand party in the Aegyptian style, complete with food, drink, and rituals. In celebration of the restoration of the new tong-house Mansion on Menlo Avenue, they invited everyone they knew who remotely had an interest in metaphysics. About seventy people the members, their friends, and their family members - showed up for the metaphysical meeting of the decade. Shiva put vodka into the communal punch bowl, and Shem (in his usual mad-poisoner mode) put a heavy dose of LSD into the same Paroketh. Paroketh = (Hebrew - "A Bowl" or "Covering"). Essentially it went quite well. However:
- The (attorney) father of one member became insane, ranting and raving all over the Mansion, angry at his wife and anyone else he encountered. The membership found this to be amusing.
- The infamous Dr. A had a good time, but on his way home, he starting experiencing strange feelings accompanied by wild visions. He went immediately to an emergency room, where a doctor told him, "It looks like someone slipped you some LSD."
- Kuat met Capricornus when she pitched in to help as he was washing dishes in the kitchen.
Kuat had been washing dishes in his parent's skilled-nursing facility since was three years old (please refer to child labor laws). He fell in rapport with Capricornus right away after all, she was a dishwasher! He eventually became the only member of Solar Lodge who came and went on a regular basis. He would visit the Lodge (in Los Angeles, the Desert, Mexico, Livingstone, Las Vegas, and Texas) for a while, then return to his adventures at the family home base in San Diego.
His adventures were pharmaceutically-based. As a child, he promoted friendship with other children by offering various substances, a gesture that he continued throughout his life. At the age of 8, he organized and presented the first of his famous Grand Parties. Entertainers were hired, food was prepared, and most of the little kiddies attending had their consciousness altered with one gift or another from child Kuat.
Through later astrological analysis, this party-giving preoccupation was discovered to actually be his main "purpose" in life. These Parties continued for decades. In fact, they never stopped. Well, actually, they did finally stop, but that's another story to be visited later.
Kuat was particularly close to Capricornus, essentially acting as her "personal servant." In 1989, and thereafter, he became the source of information on the workings and history of the tong since. Hold on to your hat - here are some of his amazing reports:
- In Las Vegas, the tong purchased an enclosed, used, rental trailer from the U-Haul company. A large, deep hole was dug in the ground by tong digging equipment and some shovels. The tong crane was then attached to the trailer hitch and the trailer was lowered, back gate downward, into the hole and covered over. By the way . . . the trailer was packed full of cash!
- The tong finally abandoned Las Vegas and moved to an undisclosed location deep in the heart of Texas, where they purchased and operated a mobile home park.
- The tong was essentially owned and operated by Capricornus and Sol; the other members owned nothing. To create a sense of balance and fairness, Kuat suggested to Capricornus that since there were so many assets, it would be appropriate for a Trust to be established, wherein the few remaining members could be beneficiaries. Amazingly, Capricornus agreed and the Trust was formed. Kuat was one of the members.
- And then the day came when Capricornus "took her seat in the East." This bizarre tale is related in detail as follows:
One day in July of 1984, Capricornus was not feeling well and Kuat drove her in her Cadillac to see an Oriental acupuncturist in town. The acupuncturist treated her and said that she needed some herbal potassium mixture that he would prepare.
"But," he said, "You cannot come to the office. Meet me in the alley behind the office in two hours."
Kuat and Capricornus pulled into the alley two hours later, and the acupuncturist delivered a black, liquid mixture in a bottle, the exact nature of which was never determined. Capricornus drank the liquid. Then they went home.
Shortly after arriving home, Capricornus began to complain of various, severe symptoms. She wanted to go to the hospital. Several members got her into the Cadillac and started driving toward the hospital. Kuat knew immediately what was happening, and he didn't want to go along on this trip. Kuat was raised in a skilled-nursing facility. He had seen many deaths.
On the way to the hospital, Capricornus said, "I can't breathe. Open the windows!" The windows were rolled down, but to no avail. When they arrived at the hospital, Capricornus was DOA.
After the death of Capricornus, Sol was drunk most of the time as he cavorted around town in his newly-purchased, flashy convertible, accompanied by various "girlfriends" who appeared to be "professionals." Sol died four years after Capricornus.
Kuat remained loosely in touch with the remaining members, but since they never really "liked" him, he stayed away, his communications with them slowing, and eventually stopping completely. He was always attached directly to Capricornus, and certainly was not attached to the "Order" or its membership.
Jack Schwarz Revisited
One of the Sirius empowerees, a psychologist who lived in Oregon, (one of many) who had flown in to San Diego to receive his Empowerment, offered to sponsor Shiva for a 5-day Consultation & Empowerment series. So, Artemis and Shiva drove up to Portland, Oregon, where he gave lectures, treated patients, and performed Empowerments. On the way back, as they approached Grants Pass, Oregon, Shiva took a chance and called the Aletheia Institute, asking if Jack Schwarz was available for a consultation. They said, "Sure. Come right over! The fee will be $350." This was very unusual, as the waiting list for consultations was always six months long.
Shiva had known Jack Schwarz since 1972. According to Elmer Green, PhD, of the Menninger Foundation, Jack was one of the best (if not the best) "talents" in the world.
Thus, Artemis got her chance to meet, and consult with, the "legendary" Jack Schwarz. This was a very high-energy meeting. Please note that a one-hour meeting with Jack provides information that lasts a lifetime One can listen to the taped recording of the consultation many years later - and still learn something new.
During this consultation, he reminded Shiva of two things:
- That he was on the Ray of Love-Wisdom, the Ray of the Cosmic Messenger. This is the rarest of the rays, Jack having seen it in (among thousands of) people only twelve times. He said, "And you've got a message to bring. Your job is to deliver the message exactly as you receive it."
- "You are not a practitioner, you are an Avatar!"
NOTE: Each person receives consciousness via an incoming Ray that descends from above to the crown through the causal body. Most people receive on dual Rays (one inside another) the inner ray is operating when one is at home and relaxed, the outer ray is "used" when one is dealing with the outer world. Anyone displaying a dual-nature personality is almost always receiving on a dual-Ray. Some (very few) people operate only on a single Ray. The Ray is seen descending into the Crown Chakra in the Causal (soul) auric field. It is the Key to our nature, a general indication of the nature of our Will. In determining our "purpose," this is possibly the single, most-important, piece of data that we can have.
There are seven distinct Rays: During this consultation, he addressed Artemis with the following information:
- That she was receiving on dual Rays: Her inner Ray being the orange Ray of Intuition (also called "Harmony through Conflict"), her outer Ray being the pink Ray of Devotion.
- Her inner, orange Ray was so diluted with white light that it appeared as a golden-bronze color. This indicated a high intuitional ability. Jack said that he had never seen an orange Ray that was so "highly" tuned. This results in an acute intuition, an "inner knowing" that reaches to the highest spiritual levels (or to the innermost, psychological problems).
Jack had previously consulted with Mont, Frater John, Katherine, Shiva, and Estar. He was quite familiar with the works of Great Grandfather Crowley and Alice Bailey. Information on Jack can be found at: http://www.holisticu.org.
The Black Helicopter
Shiva had never seen an Unidentified Flying Object (except on the inner planes). He had heard many tales, including some of first-hand encounters, and he had read about the mysterious "Black Helicopters" that were often associated with UFOs.
One day, Artemis and Shiva took a trip out into the remote desert east of El Centro. After performing the usual ceremonies, they were sitting in meditation. Then, off in the distance, they saw a helicopter. It was landing on mesa tops and taking off again. Slowly but surely, it came closer to them. Eventually it was right overhead, circling at about 200 feet, and definitely looking them over.
It was a small, two-person helicopter, shining with a highly-glossed, jet-black radiance; it had absolutely no identifying numbers or symbols (isn't that illegal?). They could clearly see the pilot, who was looking directly at them while circling, dressed in a camouflaged flight suit with a hard flight helmet and dark sunglasses. After a few circles, the mysterious machine flew back toward the eastern direction from which it had first appeared. Note that there is a military base located several miles directly east of where they were camped. There were no UFOs associated with this event.
Shivas assessment of this appearance is that it was simply a secret, military, flying machine.
In early 1992, Jose Arguelles, the founder of the popular Earth Day and the proponent of the Harmonic Convergence (1987) came out with a whole new paradigm. It was called Dreamspell, and it announced and celebrated the up-and-coming Timeshift (1992).
Dreamspell was a book, a concept, and an elaborate, complex, board game. Ten thousand copies of this "game in a box" were printed in Hong Kong; it was labeled, "Educational Gift Not For Resale." Bookstores everywhere got them for free and sold them for $20. Anyone could get a Dreamspell just by sending for it. Shiva received six sets and gave four of them away. Dreamspell, based on the Mayan Calendar, was an exposé of historical treachery and the evils of our modern calendar.
Dreamspell announced the coming Timeshift on July 26, 1992, an extremely rare date when the Mayan Calendar synchronized completely with the Gregorian Calendar, allowing a shift from one calendar to the other.
Dreamspell was terribly complex, but Shiva finally mastered the material and issued the following summary:
Time - History and the current cycle
TIME IS RELATIVE. Time flies when having fun or when engrossed in a project; Time drags when one is bored, anxious, or impatient. Timebound awareness pertains to the lower self. Timeless awareness is of the higher self.
A GRAND CYCLE (the Grand Equinox) is 26,000 years. It was just about that long ago that our current Grand Cycle had its beginning. The current Dreamspell of planet Earth is now approaching the finalé of this Grand Cycle.
Each Grand Cycle is divided into five cycles of 5200 years each.
.23987 BC to 18787 BC = Ancient Atlantis in the beginning of its decline - no recorded history .
.18787 BC to 13587 BC = Ancient Atlantis in the midst of its decline - no recorded history.
.13587 BC to 8387 BC = Ancient Atlantis at the end of its era - no recorded history.
.8387 BC to 3187 BC = Transition from Atlantis to the beginning of history - no recorded history.
.3187 BC to 2013 AD = Start of recorded history to the end of Time. The Green Central Castle.
Only 52 centuries through the Green Central Castle of Enchantment and the incredible voyage of Timeship Earth 2013 will be complete.
@ In the magic flight from Cosmic Star 208 to Magnetic Moon 209 [3187 BC], a theft occurred.
Impostors, male warrior-priests, usurped the power of the 13 moons. The priests of the calendar of Mesopotamia banished the power of the 13 moons and introduced the 12-month calendar. Hiding the power of the 13 among themselves, they attempted to banish all memory of the matrix Dreamspell of magic. To this day the number 13 is exoterically associated with Bad Luck, Witches, Marijuana, and Evil. Example: "Friday the 13th."
Magnetic Moon 209 was intended to bestow the gift of the 13:260 ratio upon the planetary kin. The 13:260 ratio unlocks the vast powers of magical flight held by the Central Castle of Enchantment. Instead, the planetary kin had imposed upon them the diminishing power ratio of 12:60. No longer the magic of 13 moons, but a 12 month calendar of uncertain meaning. No longer the timeless gyre of magical flight, but a 60 minute hour to earn ones bread. 12:60 = The 12-hour clock and the 60-minute hour, whose motto is: "Time is Money!"
Time was compressed into a flat circle. The power of the 20 solar tribes was reduced and slowly the kin gave their power away to the priests, and the priests cast the Dreamspell of History.
Despite the male priest corporate takeover of the third-dimensional Earth, the fourth-dimensional timeship matrix continued to be woven. However, the 52 steps of the Central Castle came to be covered with an increasingly dense overlay, the Dreamspell of History.
@ During the opening moon wavespell of the Central Castle [3187 to 2147 BC], the priests successfully diverted the power of universal water and established civilization through irrigation, writing, warfare, and the calendar of twelve. A seeming increase in power occurred, but only on the flat plane of third-dimensional time.
@ Through the second wind wavespell [2147 to 1107 BC], the power of spirit was channeled through metallurgy, horse and chariot warfare, and the building of imperial cities. The domain of the warrior priests was extended through 26 centuries of the Central Castle that had been captured by the male priesthood.
@ During the third eagle wavespell [1107 to 67 BC], teachers, philosophers, and visionaries called for a recollection of the original order. But the minds and memory of the kin had already become dim and were growing dimmer.
The 12:60 ratio continued to spread around the planet in mechanized victory. Yet, the secret dreamers continued to weave the true vision of time according to the invisible demands of the mighty Earth. Only in Central America and Mexico, far from the priests of Babylon, did the calendar of 13 flourish. However, 500 years ago the 12:60 priests destroyed as much as they could of the Mayan 13:260 ratio.
Operating in disregard of the natural 13:260 ratio, civilization increasingly took on the quality of a time warp. Now blind and without coherent recollection, the human crew of third-dimensional Earth steers its ship of civilization into the self-created walls of its own undoing.
Operating exclusively by its own power, third-dimensional time is flat - like a phonograph record. The time warp of the third dimension is but a thin slice of the total holosphere of fourth-dimensional time. This time warp is limited in size and duration. No more than 5200 years are available to be recorded in the grooves of the record - then no more can be recorded. Naturally, the priests of third-dimensional time are blind to the limits of the record. Fourth-dimensional time is radial, shooting out in every direction simultaneously from the ever-present Now.
So it happened that the Dreamspell of History completed itself on August 16, 1987 [The Harmonic Convergence] by the calendar of twelve. The needle of the phonograph is now skipping wildly over the record as the priests try to continue the recording. Remember when Mr. White said, "Prophecy dates in the past could be accurate; now, this is not possible." Strange sounds, dissonances, and Déjà Vus began to occur with wild insistence. The Great Awakening had begun.
From the ending of the Dreamspell of History in 1987, to the intended Dreamspell launching of Timeship Earth in 2013, there are only 26 years. Five years to unravel the Dreamspell of History [to 1992]. Eight years to recover the Dreamspell of Magic [in 2000]. Thirteen years to test drive the mighty Timeship Earth through the Central Castle of Enchantment. Then on to the launching point 2013.
With the ongoing shattering of the Dreamspell of History, the 13:260 ratio returned once again on July 26, 1992 with Timeshift and the 13 moon calendar. Thirteen perfect moons of 28 days each, plus one cosmic green day (July 25 of each year) = one perfect wavespell.
The Ancient Mayan Calendar of 13 moons has been successfully translated and is the source of the above description of history and its cycles.
Dreamspell contained a Galactic Compass that had six rotating wheels that would give you any Gregorian Calendar date in terms of Mayan chronology.
Everywhere, everyone was unable to work the Compass. So Shiva gave a series of lectures on Dreamspell and a demonstration of the use of the Galactic Compass. In San Diego, He ended up training over 200 people during four, different, free lectures.
As July 25th approached (the "free day" or Cosmic Green Day before the Timeshift), Shiva sent out flyers and ads announcing the Timeshift Ceremony on the 25th, to be held in a remote, mountain location that was 45 minutes east of San Diego. This was also to be the third, and final, Flashdance.
Banners in the four Dreamspell colors tttt were erected at the four cardinal points of a circle. A green t altar cloth was in the center. Four, or more, people were assigned to each banner. A contingent had arrived from Mexico and they were the red-banner team, standing at attention and taking the whole affair very seriously.
There was a banishing, an invocation, and then Lightblazer channeled an appropriate message. Shiva read a Timeshift declaration, and then they burned a copy of the book, The Timetables of History. All things considered, it was a fine ceremony.
"Since the end-date of the current Great Cycle of the Mayan calendar is in the year 2012, in order to survive the worst, humanity must make a shift to natural time - and soon. According to Argüelles, the time for this shift is from July 26, 2004 through July 26, 2012, the Great Calendar Change, when he is calling upon humanity to reject the current calendar and adopt the natural-time Thirteen Moon 28-day calendar." - José Arguelles - posted on the www.
