The Summum Philosophy
SUMMUM: Sealed Except to the Open Mind
1 The voice of wisdom is silent, except to the OPEN MIND. — Summum
2 The Summum Philosophy embodies the Principles of Creation Itself. From Grand Cycle to Grand Cycle the fundamental esoteric teachings of the Summum Bonum are taught to select advanced souls who then progress to new spiritual levels. The last recorded reservoir of these teachings on planet Earth has been found in Egypt, a home of the pyramids. All nations have borrowed from the ancient inheritance of Egypt. India, Persia, China, Japan, ancient Greece, Rome, and other countries partook liberally at the feast of knowledge which the masters of the land of Ra and Isis so freely provided for them.
3 At the ascension of the Grand Cycles, the Summa Individuals enlighten the souls and minds of those ready to receive the knowledge. These Summa Individuals are referred to as the "Neters" in the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. Here on planet Earth, the pyramids were used as the storage house from which knowledge stored potentially could be obtained, transmitted, and then used dynamically to catapult the select advanced souls forward in evolution. Within the pyramid sanctuaries the student would enter, then emerge as initiate or master to travel the four corners of the Earth carrying with them the precious kinetic knowledge. All serious students of these Principles recognize the debt they owe to these venerable masters of those ancient lands and to their teachers, the Summa Individuals.
4 Even the teachings of the Gnostic and Early Christians drew their roots from the Summum Principles. Unfortunately, these same teachings were lost at the time of Constantine whose iron hand smothered philosophy with its blanket of theology. The loss to the Christian Church was incalculable, for its very essence and spirit was gutted. Its participants were thrown into the abyss of the dark ages.
5 The restored purity of these Principles rests with the faithful souls who dedicate their lives to keep alive the message of these teachings. These teachings are not found in books to any great extent. The understanding is passed on from master to initiate; from initiate to student; from voice to open mind. Even today there will be found but few reliable books on this philosophy, although there are countless references to it in various phases of science, metaphysics, religion, and philosophy. Yet the Summum Principles are the only master key which will open all doors to the knowledge of Creation!
6 These Principles are formulated through nature and cannot be ascribed to a god or humankind. It is these Principles which are the cause of "gods" and humankind, not vice versa. It is not possible to understand these Principles using the intellect alone, for they must be experienced; and humankind, through its experience, must evolve to this understanding. The Law of Knowledge must be applied to all principles for one to have real knowledge rather than just belief. This systematic law of learning requires you to first question the principle and read the "words" about it. Secondly, you must take activity in the principle and experience the action, the "cause and effect" of the principle. Thirdly, you move to a knowledge of, rather than a belief about the principle, for the principle and its workings become your personal knowledge through experience.
7 For example, let us suppose you have never eaten an almond before and you would like me to convey to you the knowledge of what an almond tastes like. I can tell you that an almond tastes sweet, that it is crunchy, bitter, smooth, or dry, and describe it in other ways. You now have a description about what an almond tastes like. At this point you still do not know what an almond tastes like because all you have is some sort of belief of what it tastes like based upon my description of it. There really is no description that can convey to you what an almond tastes like. The only way you are going to know for yourself, rather than just having a belief, is for you to experience the taste of an almond through your personal experience of eating an almond. A knowledge of the Principles of Summum requires you to apply the systematic law of learning and experience them, or they will be as mere "words, words, words" to you.
8 There have been collections of maxims, axioms, aphorisms, and precepts which are mostly not understandable to outsiders, but which are readily understood by the initiate once explained and exemplified by the masters. These teachings really constitute the basic principles of Psychokinesis which, contrary to the general belief, deals with the mastery of mental forces rather than material elements. Psychokinesis is really the alteration of one kind of mental vibration into another, a much more encompassing, varied, and dynamic process. The alteration of material forms (such as the changing of one kind of metal into another) is but an aspect of psychokinesis.
9"Where is heard the voice of the Master, the mind of those ready for the teaching is open." — Summum
10"When the student's mind is open, then comes the voice to fill it with wisdom." — Summum
11 According to these aphorisms, this book will attract the attention of those prepared to receive the teaching. Likewise, when the pupil is ready to receive the wisdom, then will this little book come to him or her. Such is the law. The Principle of Cause and Effect, in its aspect of the Law of Attraction, will bring the voice and open mind together. The student and this book thus come together.
12 Since this book has come into your hands, you are now at a point in life to be exposed to the Summum Philosophy.
