ORDER OF MERCURY
- OF THE TRUE ORDER OF LIGHT
(Primavera - by Botticelli)
WHAT IS IT?
ORDER OF MERCURY (O.M.) is a Hermetic spiritual community that blends Gnostic philosophy & wisdom with Pagan faith (The Old Religion) & majick. The True Order Of Light denotes 'Original Faith'. Primarily we are focused on the preservation of nature & the exaltation of the human being with the Earth.
Veneration, Festivity, Sacred Ceremony:
The Order places a strong emphasis in celebrating the 8 Sabbatical-festivals of the Wheel of the Year, and also running workshops, etc. Balancing knowledge with love & wisdom is key to the True Order Of Light; O.M. incorporates the mysteries & principles of Covert Astrology & Kabala (The Tree of Life) while developing & experiencing Gnosis (The Hidden Mysteries of Nature & Science) as a form of symbolic-expression & philosophy within our faith, workings & daily lives, etc.
WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF IT?
JOINING ORDER OF MERCURY enables you to recognize & interpret the symbolism of the ancient world with accuracy, and gain the knowledge of the Renaissance period of Alchemy, etc. First & foremost, it is humility that will allow you to understand the value of self development while utilizing esoteric language & symbolism. O.M. offers you the tools to overcome obstacles in life, achieve goals, and accomplish dreams. Instant gratification or self-satisfaction is a choice we each must make. In our Order we draw attention to 5 elements (i.e. Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Akasha), each with levels of understanding. The beauty of esoteric language is that it allows the individual to find answers & direction for themselves, as is the key to ultimate Gnosis; all our teachings are universal & applicable to the Old Religion.
Primarily we are an independent non-profit organization. Any profits & proceeds go to an account which will fund our needs, such as the hire for events & festivals, including occasional charity work, etc.
