E PLURIBUS UNUM Sacred Heart economy of sin management

 

Different poses position of the wings in E Pluribus Unum Eagle

The Great Seal’s eagle holds a banner in its beak inscribed “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”  A motto’s purpose is to express the theme of a seal’s imagery – especially that of the shield. The center section of this shield has six symbols for “the Countries from which these States have been peopled”: the rose (England), thistle (Scotland), harp (Ireland), fleur-de-lis (France), lion (Holland), and an imperial eagle (Germany). Linked together around the shield are 13 smaller shields, each with the initials for one of the “thirteen independent States of America.”

 

This  phrase, which appears on American coinage as well, is popularly understood to  signify the melting of many people into one nation, “of many, one.” Or to identify  the coin as one of many identical coins. The gnostic understanding of this phrase,  however, borders on the psychedelic. According to Manly Hall, e pluribus unum refers  to the ancient Bacchic Rites, which he says was “a forerunner to Freemasonry.”  Mysterious and fantastic, the Bacchic Rites are built upon the following story line:  In a time before the creation of mankind, the twelve Titans cause Bacchus, Jupiter’s  beautiful son, to become fasinated by his own image in a mirror. Enthralled by  himself, Bacchus is seized by the titans. They kill him, tear him to pieces, boil  the pieces in water, and afterwards roast and eat them. This grieves all his loved  ones, hence his name, from bakhah, “to weep” or “lament.” The strewn body parts of  Bacchus become the four elements of matter. One of Bacchus’ sisters, the virgin  Minerva, rescues his sacred heart from the four elements and places it before  Jupiter/Zeus in Mount Olympus/Heaven, from There Jupiter hurls thunderbolts at his son’s muderers and reduces the Titans to ashes. The rains futher reduce the ashes, minling with the four elements, to slime. From this Jupiter forms mankind, a “Titanic embodiment” from which the “Bacchic idea,” or rational soul, must be released. The Bacchic idea is released by sexual energy, especially when facilitated by alcoholic drink – hence Bacchus is associated with grape-vines, dancing, phallic symbols, and fornication. When death and sex have rescued the rational soul from the four corners of the earth, a transfigured, eternal Bacchus is resurrected as the flaming Sun.

He is E PLURIBUS UNUM, One from many, a resurrection symbolized by the pentagram, the one rising out of the four to make five. This, says Manly Hall, is “the magical formula of man,” the human soul rising from the bondage of the animal nature. The pentagram is the true light, the star of the Morning, marking the location of five mysterious center of force, the awakening of which is the supreme secret of white magic.



With “E PLURIBUS UNUM”  flowing from his beak, Jupiter’s eagle preaches the Bacchic Gospel. It is a gospel of salvation that antedates that of Jesus Christ by many, many centuries. The Bacchic Gospel was preached and played out in the pagan cults. A Holy Virgin would ritually rescue the Son of God’s Sacred Heart from the slime of humanity imprisoning the Son’s soul. Each cult initiate – a fractional part of the Son’s soul – supposedly gained increasing amounts of knowledge from mind – altering substances and sexual ecstasy administered for money, of corse, by the temple priests and priestesses. The intiate looked forward to being released from his slimy humanity by ever – increasing knowledge. He yearned to be reunited ultimately with the Sacred Heart in Heaven, resurrected and Transfigured for all eternity.

Bacchus-Dionysus

This salvational plan, or some variation of it, can be found at the core of all the secret of mystery religions – cults of empire. It persists from the earliest Babylonian prototype right on down through
the Great Seal. It has succeeded not because it calls for repentance from sin, but because it makes sin an asset in a process of self – deification. The Bacchic Gospel serves an economy of sin management, in which sins are forgiven upon the payment of money or performance of some act of contrition valuable to society. It is about people control. Because it prospers on the addictive nature of fornication and mind – altering substances, it naturally facilitates sex and booze and drugs with all their destructive fallout in order to have a context in which to make itself useful. Unlike the Christian Gospel, which conditions forgiveness of sins upon repentance – “and if he repents, forgive him” (Luke 17:3) – the Bacchic Gospel forgives upon the rendering of appropriate sacrifices to the priest of the appropriate deity. The congeniality of this gospel to secular goverment and Roman Catholicism speaks for itself

The Two Babylons

Section IV
The Rosary and the Worship of the Sacred Heart

the following extract from Taylor, in one of his notes to his translation of the  Orphic Hymns, will show. “While Bacchus,” says he, was “beholding himself” with  admiration “in a mirror, he was miserably torn to pieces by the Titans, who, not  content with this cruelty, first boiled his members in water, and afterwards roasted  them in the fire; but while they were tasting his flesh thus dressed, Jupiter,  excited by the steam, and perceiving the cruelty of the deed, hurled his thunder at  the Titans, but committed his members to Apollo, the brother of Bacchus, that they  might be properly interred. And this being performed, Dionysius [i.e., Bacchus],  (whose HEART, during his laceration, was snatched away by Minerva and preserved) by  a new REGENERATION, again emerged, and he being restored to his pristine life and  integrity, afterwards filled up the number of the gods.” This surely shows, in a  striking light, the peculiar sacredness of the heart of Bacchus; and that the  regeneration of his heart has the very meaning I have attached to it–viz., the new  birth or new incarnation of Nimrod or Bel. When Bel, however was born again as a  child, he was, as we have seen, represented as an incarnation of the sun. Therefore,  to indicate his connection with the fiery and burning sun, the “sacred heart” was  frequently represented as a “heart of flame.” So the “Sacred Heart” of Rome is  actually worshipped as a flaming heart, as may be seen on the rosaries devoted to  that worship. Of what use, then, is it to say that the “Sacred Heart” which Rome  worships is called by the name of “Jesus,” when not only is the devotion given to a  material image borrowed from the worship of the Babylonian Antichrist, but when the  attributes ascribed to that “Jesus” are not the attributes of the living and loving  Saviour

THE SECRET TEACHINGS OF ALL AGES

by Manly P. Hall

THE BACCHIC AND DIONYSIAC RITES

The Bacchic Rite centers around the allegory of the youthful Bacchus (Dionysos or  Zagreus) being torn to pieces by the Titans. These giants accomplished the  destruction of Bacchus by causing him to become fascinated by his own image in a  mirror. After dismembering him, the Titans first boiled the pieces in water and  afterwards roasted them. Pallas rescued the heart of the murdered god, and by this  precaution Bacchus (Dionysos) was enabled to spring forth again in all his former  glory. Jupiter, the Demiurgus, beholding the crime of the Titans, hurled his  thunderbolts and slew them, burning their bodies to ashes with heavenly fire. Our of  the ashes of the Titans–which also contained a portion of the flesh of Bacchus,  whose body they had partly devoured–the human race was created. Thus the mundane  life of every man was said to contain a portion of the Bacchic life.

For this reason the Greek Mysteries warned against suicide. He who attempts to  destroy himself raises his hand against the nature of Bacchus within him, since  man’s body is indirectly the tomb of this god and consequently must be preserved  with the greatest care.

Bacchus (Dionysos) represents the rational soul of the inferior world. He is the  chief of the Titans–the artificers of the mundane spheres. The Pythagoreans called  him the Titanic monad. Thus Bacchus is the all-inclusive idea of the Titanic sphere  and the Titans–or gods of the fragments–the active agencies by means of which  universal substance is fashioned into the pattern of this idea. The Bacchic state  signifies the unity of the rational soul in a state of self-knowledge, and the  Titanic state the diversity of the rational soul which, being scattered throughout  creation, loses the consciousness of its own essential one-ness. The mirror into  which Bacchus gazes and which is the cause of his fall is the great sea of  illusion–the lower world fashioned by the Titans. Bacchus (the mundane rational  soul), seeing his image before him, accepts the image as a likeness of himself and  ensouls the likeness; that is, the rational idea ensouls its reflection–the  irrational universe. By ensouling the irrational image it implants in it the urge to  become like its source, the rational image. Therefore the ancients said that man  does not know the gods by logic or by reason but rather by realizing the presence of  the gods within himself.

After Bacchus gazed into the mirror and followed his own reflection into matter, the  rational soul of the world was broken up and distributed by the Titans throughout  the mundane sphere of which it is the essential nature, but the heart, or source, of  it they could not: scatter. The Titans took the dismembered body of Bacchus and  boiled it in water–symbol of immersion in the material universe–which represents  the incorporation of the Bacchic principle in form. The pieces were afterwards  roasted to signify the subsequent ascension of the spiritual nature out of form.

When Jupiter, the father of Bacchus and the Demiurgus of the universe, saw that the  Titans were hopelessly involving the rational or divine idea by scattering its  members through the constituent parts of the lower world, he slew the Titans in  order that the divine idea might not be entirely lost. From the ashes of the Titans  he formed mankind, whose purpose of existence was to preserve and eventually to  release the Bacchic idea, or rational soul, from the Titanic fabrication. Jupiter,  being the Demiurgus and fabricator of the material universe, is the third person of  the Creative Triad, consequently the Lord of Death, for death exists only in the  lower sphere of being over which he presides. Disintegration takes place so that  reintegration may follow upon a higher level of form or intelligence. The  thunderbolts of Jupiter are emblematic of his disintegrative power; they reveal the  purpose of death, which is to rescue the rational soul from the devouring power of  the irrational nature.

Man is a composite creature, his lower nature consisting of the fragments of the  Titans and his higher nature the sacred, immortal flesh (life) of Bacchus. Therefore  man is capable of either a Titanic (irrational) or a Bacchic (rational) existence.  The Titans of Hesiod, who were twelve in number, are probably analogous to the  celestial zodiac, whereas the Titans who murdered and dismembered Bacchus represent  the zodiacal powers distorted by their involvement in the material world. Thus  Bacchus represents the sun who is dismembered by the signs of the zodiac and from  whose body the universe is formed. When the terrestrial forms were created from the  various parts of his body the sense of wholeness was lost and the sense of  separateness established. The heart of Bacchus, which was saved by Pallas, or  Minerva, was lifted out of the four elements symbolized by his dismembered body and  placed in the ether. The heart of Bacchus is the immortal center of the rational  soul.

After the rational soul had been distributed throughout creation and the nature of  man, the Bacchic Mysteries were instituted for the purpose of disentangling it from  the irrational Titanic nature. This disentanglement was the process of lifting the  soul out of the state of separateness into that of unity. The various parts and  members of Bacchus were collected from the different corners of the earth. When all  the rational parts are gathered Bacchus is resurrected.

The Rites of Dionysos were very similar to those of Bacchus, and by many these two  gods are considered as one. Statues of Dionysos were carried in the Eleusinian  Mysteries, especially the lesser degrees. Bacchus, representing the soul of the  mundane sphere, was capable of an infinite multiplicity of form and designations.  Dionysos apparently was his solar aspect.

The Dionysiac Architects constituted an ancient secret society, in principles and  doctrines much like the modern Freemasonic Order. They were an organization of  builders bound together by their secret knowledge of the relationship between the  earthly and the divine sciences of architectonics. They were supposedly employed by  King Solomon in the building of his Temple, although they were not Jews, nor did  they worship the God of the Jews, being followers of Bacchus and Dionysos. The  Dionysiac Architects erected many of the great monuments of antiquity. They  possessed a secret language and a system of marking their stones. They had annual  convocations and sacred feasts. The exact nature of their doctrines is unknown. It  is believed that CHiram Abiff was an initiate of this society.

So Bacchus/Dionysos is the god who dies and is reborn, and from his death his  sacrifice, for the titans follow correct sacrificial procedure when killing him,  humanity comes into being. The reason for the punishment is alluded to in the  passage above. The ancient grief of Persephone, according to one arguement, is  sorrow for the death of her son Dionysos at the hands of the Titans. Humans pay the  punishment because they were formed from the Titan’s ashes and have a Titanic  nature. By living an Orphic life and avoiding the bloodshedding which is the legacy  of the Titans, humans may pay the penalty and achieve freedom.

Manly p Hall said Was early Roman Christianity confused with the worship of Bacchus,  I seen people Saying IHS stood for ISIS, HORUS, SET, because  Jesuits use it,   pop’s up in kabbalah and many other places, The monogram IHS, now…   interpreted to mean Iesus Hominum Salvator (Jesus Savior of Men), is another direct  link between the Christian and the Bacchic rites. IHS is derived from the Greek ΥΗΣ,  which, as its numerical value (608) signifies, is emblematic of the sun and  constituted the sacred and concealed name of Bacchus. (See The Celtic Druids by  Godfrey Higgins.) The question arises, Was early Roman Christianity confused with  the worship of Bacchus because of the numerous parallelisms in the two faiths? If  the affirmative can be proved, many hitherto incomprehensible enigmas of the New  Testament will be solved.   44 mins IHS over lapped as Acharya S  talks about as this symbol turned in to dollar sign http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5672009516679691710#

It is by no means improbable that Jesus Himself originally propounded as allegories  the cosmic activities which were later con fused with His own life. That the  Χριστός, Christos, represents the solar power reverenced by every nation of  antiquity cannot be controverted. If Jesus revealed the nature and purpose of this  solar power under the name and personality of Christos, thereby giving to this  abstract power the attributes of a god-man, He but followed a precedent set by all  previous World-Teachers. This god-man, thus endowed with all the qualities of Deity,  signifies the latent divinity in every man. Mortal man achieves deification only  through at-one-ment with this divine Self. Union with the immortal Self constitutes  immortality, and he who finds his true Self is therefore “saved.” This Christos, or  divine man in man, is man’s real hope of salvation–the living Mediator between  abstract Deity and mortal humankind. As Atys, Adonis, Bacchus, and Orpheus in all  likelihood were originally illumined men who later were confused with the symbolic  personages whom they created as personifications of this divine power, so Jesus has  been confused with the Christos, or god-man, whose wonders He preached. Since the  Christos was the god-man imprisoned in every creature, it was the first duty of the  initiate to liberate, or “resurrect, ” this Eternal One within himself. He who  attained reunion with his Christos was consequently termed a Christian, or  Christened, man.
