Freemasons, for those who do not know, are members of one of the largest and oldest ‘fraternities’ in the world. Due to the secretive nature of the group, not much is known to the general population regarding the group.
Manly P. Hall was a 33rd Degree (Scottish Rite) Freemason as well as a Canadian-born astrologer, mystic, and so much more. Many great minds have been attracted to his work and find him to be quite wise. Back in 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) in California and made it clear that he intended to create solutions for the ever-growing problems facing humanity as a whole.
He is best known for his work The Secret Teachings Of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy and by most, it is considered a classic. He published that book in 1926 and even now people still find many useful teachings within it. As the title ensues, this book dives right into the teachings of many different religions, cultures, and just about anything you can think of from Freemasonry to ancient history.
Of course, since publishing that book, Hall wrote many others before his death in 1990. Hall’s works are quite interesting and I believe that if you would want to learn anything about the topics listed above his work would astound you. During Hall’s last public lecture at the Scottish Rites Masonic Temple in L.A., he had a very important message for humanity. This is a message that we have all needed to hear for quite some time now.
“Man does not have the right to destroy that which he did not create. He has not the right to take a beautiful world with all his privileges and opportunities and turn it into a purgatory.” -Manly P. Hall
His words will hit like a ton of bricks and make you really think. Whether you are a Freemason or not you can appreciate the things he has to say. What do you think about his message?
