Book IV
Return of the Mysteries



Flashdance II
"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. Many years earlier, after leaving Solar Lodge, he had vowed never to use any of the Order of the Temple structures or ceremonies.

Estar had formally 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 ever had (however, Estar's were 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 quite smoothly. Estar's contribution turned out to be an Enochian chant, delivered in his deep, magickal, sub-bass voice. It was all good and true and well-done.

After that, Estar disappeared for a while on a Magickal Retreat, wherein he performed the Enochian Calls of the Thirty Aethyrs, 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 esoteric 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." Recent scientific discoveries indicate that Sirius is actually a triple star system.


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.

Kuat became particularly close to Capricornus, essentially acting as her "personal servant." In 1989, and thereafter, he became the source of information on the history and workings of the tong since our adventurers had left. He told us about many things, including The Strange Death of Capricornus - the bizarre details of which are described in the book: Inside Solar Lodge - Outside the Law.

Suffice it to say here that, in 1984, when they arrived at the hospital, Capricornus was DOA.
