The Decryption Mentality
To recognize the symbolic language of the mystery schools, you have to think like those who would have hidden this knowledge. You have to be clever, and you have to imagine ways of making it seem meaningless, to void suspicion. It should speak to those who are looking for it and no one else. No one will try to solve a riddle if they don’t know it’s there. So the first step is to look for it, and know how to recognize it.
The Alchemists, facing the church, concealed their art ‘al Khemit’ (of Egypt) under symbols.
The same Egyptian art was encoded into the Kabbalah and the Hebrew language. The Letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the spheres on the tree of life, and the Tarot as well, are all restructured forms of the Sacred Science of Egypt. They are expressions in one form or another, of the Neteru, the forces in nature.
