is to change Era?
By José Luis Parise
What is now an open secret, until a few years ago
was a secret reserved for esoteric circles: all initiate
traditions of human history announce a change of era in the early
years of this new millennium. But, what is to change era?
The announcement of the current era change is made
with such precision that cultures separated
from one another by centuries and even millennia, with different
calendars, and which, at least "officially," never met each
other, as amazingly as rigorously, agree on the same and accurate
date, and even on the schedule for the change: the so highly
celebrated 12/22/2012, at 11.11 am is the
appointment for humanity.
But if today the so
disturbing Change is, fortunately, a fact revealed to anyone who
wants to know about it beyond initiatory circles ... the wisdom, the
teaching and the logic revealed behind such a transcendental change
are still equally hermetic. This hermeticism
has been reinforced by the distortions and fantasies of the
In fact, questions such as...
is a change of era necessary? Will
it just "happen" or is it something to be "achieved"?
the change be collective or individual?
are ways to get closer to the Question that, to he who dares to
question what for others is simply "destiny", triggers
all the other questions:
is to change era?
It is a fact that the current problems humanity
is facing are not different from the ones
in any other time. More or less visible for
some, it is nonetheless clear that social issues and the “current”
personal uncertainties match those we can see (to name just a
reference) in the Greek classics. Moreover, the danger of
self-destruction of mankind
became (unmistakably) at the end of World War II. However, in none of
these periods, or any other of the many that can be cited, with the
same crossroads in different degrees, a change of this magnitude was
announced astrologically, by means of oracles, or wisdom. Why is it
Paradoxically, the fact that the prophecies do
not argue the reasons for the changes announced is revealing in
itself, instead they only describe such changes and the concomitant
state of affairs with them. This strategy requires that he who wants
to understand the logic, reasons, and arguments by which what is
announced must cross the threshold of the entrance door and go beyond
the cryptic level that a prophecy represents... to go into that which
made such prophecies become into existence: the teaching on which
they are based on.
OPENING THE NEW ERA
Alchemy, Kabala, taoism, zen, hermetism, shamanism
... If all these teachings coincide with
each other to announce the change of era, are we then talking about
"teachings" in plural, or about one same Teaching which was
pluralized through various forms adapted to different cultures and
different times when it should be implanted?
Surprisingly, the answer to such question about all that wisdom that
impregnated the earlier eras introduces us fully into the New Era. As
such teachings have a so identical wisdom... which consist
of eleven steps in common amongst
them. Eleven steps that generate
a real map, called "the method of Magic", and which comes
from these same teachings as an absolute key to the New Era.
Equally striking is one of the most unexpected
factors, as is the blunt fact that each of such esoteric teachings
has been, alternatively or simultaneously, the base of data,
methodological guide, field of interest, revealing source and even
inspiring agent of personalities, disciplines and the most brilliant
and revolutionary ideas of the succession of eras which, in fact, the
prophecies announce is
coming to an end. Era that is shaken
to its foundations when awareness is raised about
the fact that the source
from where the overwhelming majority of its highest exponents in
their highest paths and disciplines drank... is the Source that
contains the crystal
clear waters of that unique initiatory
teaching, scattered all around the various esoteric schools of the
history of mankind.
And indeed, that is what
is evidently shown when the usual perspective from which to look at
the history of mankind is changed, and if when the challenge to see
it from the keys of wisdom held by the prophecies announcing the
change of era is accepted: if, to the already numerous research
papers showing that the spiritual teachers in every culture who
planted the seeds that led to religions, reached their mastery by
drinking from the waters of initiation, we add the revelation that
the minds which opened the paths of the different disciplines derived
in sciences fed themselves
from those same waters ... inevitably, the concepts and ideas we have
about the history of mankind, of its foundations and of its divisions
vary in such a
definite way... that it is inevitable that will be interpreted as
the beginning of a change of era! And that is exactly what in effect,
the history of science conclusively shows, from its very dawn to its
most contemporary exponents.
CHANGING THE POINT OF VIEW
Sources as diverse as the Greek Herodotus or the
Babylonian Berosus agree on their comments about that the wise men
from Greece traveled to Egypt and India to conduct initiations in
esoteric temples, in such an ineludible way ... that finally they
decided to transfer such temples to Greece itself. Similarly,
contemporary researchers as Frances Yales point out that at the
beginning of what we now call "science" it was practically
impossible to separate a scientist from an occultist, and their
doctrines were impregnated in the matrix of the hermetic traditions
in particular, and in the most diverse schools of esoteric in
Pythagoras. His own name
relates to Pythias, the original name of the oracle of Delphi. For
that reason, it is not surprising that the Pythagorean School was
impenetrable and esoteric, with rigorous initiation rituals. The
"mathematical" level considered the concept of Number as
the main organizer of the Universe, while the “acousmatic”
level revealed the concept of Sound as general organizer of the
Socrates’ verifiable biographical information is practically
nonexistent, it is noted that the "know thyself" which
dominates his teaching, and the mayeutics method itself which
encouraged such knowledge of himself ... are an accurate summary of
the goal and the path of initiation schools, both in the Middle East
PLATON After having gone
all around Egypt and Africa for 11 years,
he returned to Athens and founded his Academy, which imparted
a dual philosophy. One is exoteric, open to everybody and exposed in
whereas the other is esoteric, reserved only to the initiated.
ARISTOTLE Both his
teaching at the Lyceum as well as his works are explicitly integrated
by two main groups: the exoteric or chromatic and the esoteric or
achromatic. His concept of "entelechy" is the fullest
expression of Initiation, as it is the goal of every initiate: "which
contains the end in itself."
PTOLEMY. Let us Listen,
in his own words, to he who as an astronomer, astrologer, chemist,
geographer and mathematician did not hesitate to claim that his
revelations are initiated in esoteric process: "When
I decide to enjoy projecting myself among the celestial bodies, I do
not touch the ground with my feet any longer: I met with demons and
Zeus and I filled myself with the ambrosia energy.”
FIBONACCI While the
works of his authorship which are available at present are
unfortunately very few, his training in North Africa as well as his
interest in Hindu and Arab studies (in addition to the classical
Greco-Roman) show him closely related to the field of iniciatory
wisdom, which in fact concludes showing his literally key revelation
of the proportion that is hidden in the esoteric concept per
excellence of the Golden Number.
ROGER BACON. He is considered the inventor of
experimental science ... however, his
training includes ancient texts unknown
to the majority, and Arabic manuscripts containing alchemical
secrets. Being a chemist and physicist in the modern sense of these
terms; he interpreted the transmutation of in
way. In fact, he devoted an entire treatise
to the subject, Speculum alchemiae,
in which he explicitly stated that there was no separation between
science and magic.
LEONARDO DA VINCI
Historical, journalist, artistic
and cinematographic investigation show
again and again Leonardo’s profound relationship with the
initiatory tradition, in its various schools. It is sufficient to
refer to specific issues such as his interest in the Hermetic concept
of the golden ratio, or to such comprehensive information as the
encoded information in The Last Supper,
Adoration of the Magi, The Virgin of the Rocks,
etc., and especially The Annunciation
(which, though perhaps less known, contains information so revealing
that it surpasses all other provided by his works.)
GIORDANO BRUNO Just by remembering the terrible
evidence that the statue built in his honor in Rome signals the place
where he was burned alive, accused of heresy, blasphemy and
immorality for works such as The
Infinite Universe and Worlds, or on The Cause, Principle and One ...
is enough to see that already in his time such a level of production
couldn’t be conceived without
linking it to the esoteric.
JOHANNES KEPLER. The striking fact that his mother
was considered a "witch" who practised
the art of divination by the cards and showed the skills of pythoness
is the exact frame to understand that it was not a fortuitous event
that Johannes had to live a long time practising the interpretation
of the stars and preparing horoscopes. In fact, with regard to his
fundamental contribution to science, on the elliptical orbits of the
planets, in his autobiography he argues that it was achieved thanks
to "a benevolent demon that grabbed
me and took me to the moon, where he showed me the laws of cosmos."
ISAAC NEWTON. In his library there
was more than one hundred works of alchemy, among them there was a
volume by Nicolas Flamel that he himself transcribed by hand. His
interest in the initiation school of alchemy was such that he
translated the Emerald Tablet by Hermes Trismegistus to English . He
understood the search for the "Golden Fleece" as an
alchemical metaphor. In his Mathematical
Principles of Natural Philosophy, he
starts to talk about non-physical forces interacting with physical
objects. But as talking about the subtle ruling over the dense was
too close to esotericism, the ridiculous story must have been
invented from the apple falling on his head, which revealed the laws
SIGMUND FREUD On July 24, 1921, in a letter to
Carrington (editor of one of the most important newspapers about
occultism at the time, and director of the
American Psychical Institute) he said: "I
am not of those who reject at the outset, the study of psychic
phenomena called the occult on the grounds of its being unscientific,
unworthy of a scientist, even dangerous. If I were at the beginning
of my scientific career, instead of being in the end, perhaps I would
not choose any other field of research, despite all the difficulties
it presents.” Freud was a member
(from 1911 to 1938, when he was elected an honorary member) of the
Society for Psychical Research in London, whose foundation was made
to promote the study of so-called spirit phenomena, from a skeptical
and objective viewpoint.
ALBERT EINSTEIN. Although
his relationship with, respect for and genuine interest in esoteric
confirmed and accurate data which was already available during
Einstein's life. However, it was due to the exhibition Albert
Einstein - Engineer of the Universe,
organized by the Max Planck Institute of History of the Sciences in
2005, that the scientific community could not continue hiding nor
ignoring that its highest exponent truly studied Initiation, which he
even said had used as "inspiration
source." In the 60's his niece
said her uncle "always had a copy
of the Secret Doctrine of Madame Blavatsky on his desk."
Einstein advised his colleagues to dive into the reading of that work
when they were overwhelmed by a problem, "in
order to relax and be inspired."
In 1931, one of the first things Einstein did on his arrival at the
U.S. was to visit the Hopi Indian Reservation. Historic visit, which
remains by "chance" largely unknown even today ... although
Einstein himself made sure that it were recorded photographically.
His interest in the Indian cultures was integral as Cultures that
happen to be guardians of esoteric information about the change of
era, have recently unveiled.
LOOKING FROM THE NEW ERA
Looking from the
New Era perspective, the history of
science… is the history of magic. The deepest roots of science
are indistinguishable from the roots of magic. And, no matter how
much it bothers to orthodox established science to recognize it,
these roots are not limited to questions of the past, but they extend
throughout the entire history of science and reach their present
exponents, as we have just detailed by referring only (it is worth to
clarify explicitly) to their most renowned representatives.
The most famous and exalted creators of science
are those who (in overwhelming and decisive
proportion) have fed on magic. And if science has become real just by
feeding on the land of magic, the conclusion is unavoidable: Science
is a wonderful fruit of the most wonderful tree of magic!
A Conclusion that, indeed… opens a new era.
If such conclusion is "provocative" ...
will precisely depend on whether it is seen from the old or from the
new era. Since from the New Era
vision such conclusion only "provokes"... the purest
And integration reaches such a depth that
it is not limited even to the integration of science as a fruit of
magic that turned into a paradigm of the ending decade, but it places
magic as the timeless tree from which the fruit that have generated
the paradigms for every era of humanity comes!
In fact, an "inventory" similar to that
made about science can be fulfilled done
with respect to fields that seem so distant or dissimilar disciplines
among themselves like military disciplines, politics or the economy.
Revealing each of these fields as a result of magic is, obviously, an
experience as revealing as the unveiling made with respect to
science. For space reasons, it is not possible at this stage to refer
to each of these fruits and their relationship with the tree of
magic. But for the issue before us, the fruit cannot but be
considered, coming from the magic, as it became the most crucial
paradigm of previous eras to the era that has science as a paradigm.
We refer, of course, to religion.
relationship of the teachers upon which, later, religions were
founded with the esoteric initiation is an issue that has already
been developed from various disciplines. And while there is much
about what we think we could provide, for the time being it is
sufficient with such studies and developments already undertaken to
see that what can only be seen from the perspective of the New Age:
if religion is the primary exponent of one initiation teaching, which
together through other fields, and then through science and its
derivatives, it is penetrating
humanity ... then that original initiatory teaching has already
penetrated humanity through two possible routes: the right hemisphere
(through religion) and the left hemisphere (through science and its
Then ... what remains is
integration. And that is exactly what the prophecies speak about
regarding the New Era!
LIVING FROM THE NEW ERA
Most significantly, that Indian culture that
Albert Einstein chose to visit is the same culture that made known to
mankind the most revealing information about the change of era during
the same passing of that change.
The data is extremely shocking ... and constitutes
in turn the most valuable guide which mankind has about what the
entry into the New Era is. And even more, being very strict, the
encrypted information also includes the revelation of what the ending
era is and what there is beyond the threshold of the change of era.
This is a real map that the Hopi have released, and it contains
information about the itinerary already followed, the current stretch
of the road and the steps leading toward the goal where it leads.
Obviously, this is an issue that deserves a
thorough job in itself. But just a quick
look is unequivocally enough to discover what is stated in one of the
most sacred documents belonging to those cultures that are
also considered sacred ... is the path of integration.
Indeed, the mentioned map firstly shows a root
that is tied to humanity in a unified way, but then splits into two
branches, one of which is shorter than the other and is coming to an
end ... but before ending in an increasingly tortuous nothing, it has
the chance to join the other branch. An integration which unifies
again what had been divided and in the beginning formed a unit.
The information revealed by the very members of
the Hopi culture who have had the very
sacred mission to preserve, rediscover and make known the contents of
the map is nothing but the confirmation of what we have very
generally developed in this paper. It is enough to listen to one of
their guardians (e.g. Thomas Banyanca) to surprisingly discover that
the point of division is represented by the cross (i.e., religions)
and the figures represented in the shortest line express "wars"
(that is i.e. the military power), "inventions" (i.e.,
science), "materialism" (i.e., economy) and "power"
(i.e. politics) ... and that all that must be transcended now to
change the era integrating it to the original line where they come
from. Both lines, integrated, are the most precise and rigorous
representation of what changing era is.
And something else, the fundamental
factor, even more important than anything extremely important already
revealed. And that is: in that fully interactive line, who is the one
who produces the integration?
In that line which unifies what at the beginning
was united, but has now been enriched by all the itinerary specified
along the way ... the inhabitant, the one who is called to create,
produce and inhabit the integration, is no longer a collective
expression as the other line, but it has man as protagonist.
in the singular form.
The change of era is produced in man, not in
There is no change of
era collective, global, economic, and cultural or species
consciousness that will change man. It is man; it is each of us as
individuals who must make the change, for then mankind to change of
era. And it is more than enough to integrate that code here decoded
which points to integration, and which warns that such integration is
a personal journey, with what other cultures depositories of the
original knowledge teach about this change of era, so that everything
is immediately revealed and the light unveils the secrets that have
been in darkness for ages.
culture considered sacred is the one who in an inexpugnably way kept
for 500 years the original knowledge of the Incas, beyond any
conqueror and beyond every search. These are the Q'eros. When the
chief priests, who are the highest exponents, revealed that it was
time to become known as "the new Pachkutak" had arrived ...
they revealed that such
change of era has as its fundamental factor the integration of the
eagle of the east with the condor of the west. East and West
represented with the eagle and the condor by the Q'eros ... but that
should be invoked by every human being in their sacred space. "On
their table," in Q'ero’s terms, the human being must
integrate their right side to their left side. That is, they should
make this integration in themselves.
In more involving terms: the right hemisphere and
the left hemisphere must be integrated. In More trascendental
terms: religion and science must be
integrated. And all this on the Scenario for which all has been
placed: the Human Being.
That, exactly, is changing era. That which, in
terms such as "initiation" or " esotericism,"
Magic always teaches the Human Being. Magic which, beginning the Era
of Integration ... is for the first time methodically integrated to
