The word “church”
derives from the Greek kyrios, “lord.”
In popular usage, a church is “the Lord’s house.”
The term “Lord,” as used here, refers not to any anthropomorphic “God,” or
to any hierarchical power; rather it is an esoteric cipher for the
consciousness of transcendent unity that lies hidden, like
the memories of our dreams, just beyond the reach of our rational minds.
It is our thesis, based not on belief but on empirically verifiable
research, that this gestalt consciousness of
all being is very real and very powerful, and that conscious contact,
communion, and union with it is potentially possible for every woman and
every man on Earth.
The consciousness of transcendent unity is repressed, separated off from
the normal waking state, in the average member of modern society.
This oceanic communion seeps subtly into our awareness through our dreams,
myths, and emotions.
It is the source of aesthetic inspiration, creative imagination, passion,
and the sense of humor.
It is the mysterious magnetic energy that, at a touch, transforms our dim,
somnolent lives into vibrant clarity, splendor, and ecstasy.
It is the light reflecting from the eyes of a new-born babe and of an
consciousness is the Holy Grail that we all, knowingly or not, spend all our
lives seeking, or mourning the lack of.
According to the
spiritual tradition that our proposed Church will acknowledge, this higher
level of consciousness can be accessed and integrated into our daily lives,
through techniques and technologies that have been discovered and refined in
“underground” laboratories since the time of
Indeed, the science of consciousness transformation
predates civilization, and has roots in Neolithic shamanism.
Over the centuries its lore has been preserved and passed down the
generations, guarded by strict vows of secrecy and transmitted only to
This policy of secrecy was necessary for two reasons:
because of repression by social forces motivated solely by the pursuit of
power and wealth, who have a vested interest in maintaining public ignorance
— and secondly,
because the tools of Illumination can be dangerous in the hands of those who
We are moving now, however, into an ćon in which that which was formerly
hidden must be revealed to all.
Our spiritually somnolent society must be awakened so that the human race
will be able to cope with the crises that lie ahead in the new millennium.
It is “make it or
break it” time, and Spaceship Earth will need all hands on deck when we pass
through the Straits of Aquarius.
higher consciousness with the normal waking self is the true goal of all
valid religious practice, whatever the symbols used to embody the idea.
Its attainment triggers a personal transformation or “rebirth,” an
Initiation; it is the only true “salvation.”
If a sufficient number of individuals develop this integration, the infusion
of new creative energy into human society will trigger a worldwide
revolutionary transformation, an evolutionary leap into the future.
This will constitute the onset of puberty for Homo sapiens.
It is to this personal and social transformation —
Revelation and Revolution — that our new Church will be dedicated.
