Manly P Hall

It is claimed that Hall was made a knight patron of the Masonic Research Group of San Francisco in 1953, although he was not raised as a Mason until 22 November 1954 into Jewel Lodge No. 374 , San Francisco. He later received his 32° in the Valley of San Francisco AASR (SJ).[5] On December 8, 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33°Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite) at a ceremony held at the Philosophical Research Society (PRS)[6][7]). The definitive Manly Palmer Hall Archive states that Hall received the 33°, "despite never being initiated into the physical craft."[8]

In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles. He appears in the introduction to the 1938 film When Were You Born, a murder mystery that uses astrology as a key plot point.

"All living things are compounds of spirit and matter. Forms are moved by an indwelling life. If there is a science of matter there is also a science of spirit.

Materiality as a philosophy of life is a sterile delusion. The earth was not a ball of dirt tumbling its way around the sun --it was a living being with a heart and a mind. It had its own nerves, arteries, and veins and lovingly provided for the well-being of its children. It could be appropriately honored as Isis, the Mother of Mysteries, and Diana, the great goddess of the Ephesians.

This belief also explained to pagan minds how the prayers of private citizens could be heard and answered if the heart was pure and the plea was honorable."

"Growth is natural to man. No one thinks of a flower

trying to bloom, or a tree trying to grow. The blossoming

of the flower is a manifestation of universal law flowing

through the plant: it is the will of the Infinite made

manifest in the infinite. Illumination is the blossoming 

of the soul in man; it is just as natural, simple, and

inevitable as the flowering of the rose.

The wise man does not try to be wise;

wisdom is as natural to him as folly is 

common to ordinary mortals...

Man does not have to try to be himself."

Manly P. Hall

The Rose Garden 

Is For

The One Who Loves The Roses

The transcendental sphere is not for those

who would run away from living, but rather

for those who would hasten forth toward life.

It is hard to describe the difference in motives,

but once they are experienced, the differences are obvious.

The element of ulterior motive is involved'

that certain deceit about many of our impulses

which are inspired by a phase of selfishness, or self-pity

or egotism, or even ambition.

A textbook on the art of Chinese poetry 

explains the matter simply. Three manners of men

attempt to write poetry. ( In Taoism, poetry is a symbol

of harmonious or rhythmic living.)  The first and the

lowest of these composes rhymes and verse to sell,

and his motive is profit. He never can truly become a poet.

The second composes his lyrical visions to impress

others with his superior abilities, or in the hope that

they will advance him in reputation or preferment...

his motives are ambition, and he never can be a poet.

The third class... and their number is comparatively small

are compelled only by the universal impulse ob beauty.

Poetry writes itself through them.

Desiring neither profit or fame but moved

by an irresistible impulse to express poetry,

they alone are the poets.

They have no personal motive but a 

universal motive possesses them.

It is the joy of beauty and nature to reveal itself.
