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.

"If the inner eye is opened, all darkness disappears. The solar system unfolds in a vast flower-like pattern, the colors of which are beyond description. Within this structure are the auric bodies of the planets moving in stately procession about the sovereign sun. Above and beyond the solar system are the blazing archetypal patterns of the constellations which in turn mingle their lights with the countless flames of the galaxy.

Below on earth every flower and plant has its own auric field, minerals shine with an interior light, and the earth beneath our feet is a mass of tiny stars. In the midst of this diffusion of colors stands the human being in an auric robe of glory. Every moment of existence, even what we like to call death, is bringing forth beings and creatures whose bodies will fade away, but whose invisible constitutions will shine forever."          Manly P. Hall

"The universal impact of art forms transcends the limitations imposed by language, custom, or belief. The Greeks held that through the eyes and ears it was possible to nourish the soul. Pythagoras taught that certain forms of illness could be treated by presenting to the attention of the patient figures of the symmetrical geometric solids. He is said to have received this doctrine from the priests of Egypt.

As the body of man is nourished by food, the internal psychic self issustained by the contemplation of beauty. Among the secret sciences of antiquity the laws regulating harmonic proportions in form, color, sound, and motion, were carefully examined and considered.

Rejoicing in the likeness of itself, which it beholds in beauty and order, the soul rushes forth to embrace that which substantiates its own disposition. By this motion of his interior principle, man is strengthened and inspired to restore the harmony of his being.

When man becomes beautiful internally, and discovers himself to be a creature of beauty possessing an internal insight greater than his external perceptions, he is converted to reality by the yearnings and longings of his own heart. His mind responds to the instruction of the wise, but his soul to the revelation of the eternal."

"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
