Esotericism is the theory and practice of the arcane arts and sciences. The dictionary defines arcane as mysterious or secret. These same secret arts have been practiced by the great Adepts and Masters of all ages and entire civilizations have practiced the recondite arts, including the ancient Egyptians. In Asia, esotericism is practiced openly as Yoga.
The esoteric arts have been misused by some, and thus have fallen suspect. Nevertheless the Sacred Mysteries are part of the Arcane and they have throughout history been kept secret. The Fraternity of the Hidden Light practices these Sacred Mysteries or esoteric arts for good, as they were intended by the great Adepts and Masters.
Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta
Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta is Latin for “Fraternity of the Hidden Light,” and refers to that hidden light resident in all life, the Spirit within.
Through application of a Qabalistic numerological system known as Gematria, “Hidden Light” equates to the phrase, “The stone which the builders rejected” and refers to the legendary building of King Solomon’s temple, where the rejected stone became the Keystone of the temple, the temple of God and indwelling place of the Holy Shekinah.
Statement of Purpose
One of the Primary Purposes of the Fraternity of the Hidden Light is to prepare its members for illumination so that they may serve humanity. Members progress through several grades of instruction and experience, which aid them in achieving all that they are capable of becoming.
The common goal is illumination and the full expression of Wisdom, Love and Power. Wisdom is acquired by the experience of correct actions based on true knowledge and insight. Love is developed through meditation which opens the heart for the illumination of Union with the ALL. Power is developed through the correct application of Wisdom and Love, as for example, through Ritual. The power employed in the rituals of the Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta is the power of Love, the only true power in the Universe.
The curriculum of the Fraternitas L.V.X. Occulta, or Fraternity of the Hidden Light, is a structured, graduated system which utilizes grades as a means of preparing and training the aspirant.
Mystery Schools of all Ages have employed elaborate methods to screen their students and test their integrity and dedication to the Great Work. At the same time, these methods were intended to give the student an understanding of and feeling for that particular school’s approach to the Work of L.V.X.
The Fraternity of the Hidden Light is no different. The curriculum of the Fraternity is personally guided and consists of study, meditation and ritual. Its studies center around the mystical Arts of Qabalah, Alchemy, Astrology, Magick, the Tarot and what may be called Occult Psychology. Meditation is used to facilitate an in-depth understanding of the Tradition and to develop within the Aspirant a personal communication link with the only true Teacher, one’s own Higher Self. Rituals are used for numerous purposes and are aimed at invoking quantum changes in consciousness, leading toward a perception of the inner realities behind outward appearances.
An important part of the curriculum is the application of the teachings toward healing. With the use of color and sound, a harmonizing and equilibrating energy is released by their work, for all those who are in need, be they student, friend or foe.
