The Stone the Builders Refused

Will always be the head cornerstone. It’s like an omen of death, but what does it really mean?

It’s about building a pyramid, the head corner is the apex of the pyramid – the cap or head stone. It is the 5th and final “corner” to be added. It also completes the pyramid where as the other 4 corners laid the foundation.

The pyramid has to be made of individual stones and no two can be alike. Each stone has its proper place and they must all be fit together exactly to form a structure of perfect harmonic proportion. The builder(s) can’t use every rock from everywhere so they have to “select” the ones they want to use in the building of their pyramid. So the builders are selecting some stones for the project and rejecting others. What this idiom says is the final stone they need to complete the pyramid will ALWAYS be one they rejected. It also implies that this won’t be apparent until it’s time to place the capstone, at which point the builders are like “oh shit!”.

That’s a bit of a quandary if you think about it. There are too many rocks in too many quarries to select them all, you have to pick and choose which ones you’re going to use. So in my mind, the most important step to the entire build process is the first one… a way to overcome that dilemna.

One of the more significant Edgar Cayce readings said that what we are trying to do here will be achieved thru Time, Space, and Patience. The first two make pretty obvious sense, in building any “order” everything needs to be put in its proper place. Everything has its place in not only space, but in time as well – timing and spacing.

Patience I never really got, I mean I got it in the way we all do as in knowing we never exhibit enough of it when we should, but I knew I wasn’t getting it in the way he meant it. I think now I do, in a profoundly deep way.

Patience is the only solution to the quandary. It would seem to be an impossible equation but it’s not. If one were to wait until ALL the other builders have made their attempts and failed (which the equation states they will) what you have is massive pile of preselected rocks, each and every one of them stones that the other builders refused.

However stupid that might sound, it is exactly what is going on here. In the 13th mystery school, it is an absolute requirement to have the patience to let this happen before you even attempt construction. You need a blueprint, and in order to make a proper blueprint you have to know what materials you’re working with from beginning to end.

The great pyramid is the symbol of the 13th mystery school, it is not nor has it ever been the school itself, but rather a symbol of what that school is trying to achieve. It was built by stone masons, the founding fathers of America were also stone masons and they rebuilt the great pyramid here in America. The best part is, they waited for the right stones to pile up.

This pyramid is massive, built on a scale that makes the one we see at Giza look like a speck of dirt. If you’re thinking “this guy’s an idiot, if it’s so massive, where the hell is it?” I don’t blame you, but bear with me.

The reason we don’t see it is the forest for the trees thing. We’ll never find it looking for it IN America, because it IS America. The “real” stones are and always have been, us… people. The USA is the Us of America, Us meaning Humanity… all humanity… We the People. America is Humanity’s last stand on a field of battle that is overflowing with the blood of countless failed resurrection attempts, each and every one due to a lack of patience on the part of the builder(s).

Nicholas Roerich told FDR and others involved at the time to “wait for the stone” and was extremely adamant about it. This is also when the symbolism on the back of the dollar was updated to reflect what was going on in America with all of this. Since the base and first twelve courses are built and only the capstone is missing, that tells us what stone he was referring to.

Remember how this nation started, a bunch of rejects, political and religious criminals otherwise known as “free thinkers”. Remember also the founding fathers were considered criminal elements and rejected by their respective orders. Not for any crimes against humanity, but for violating the internal rules of their own orders to do what was right for humanity.

Now remember that stones are people, so we are waiting on a person. Who? E. Pluribus Unum “out of many… One”. So America, spiritually a nation of rejects is trying to “raise” the ultimate reject to cap and finish the pyramid.

This is what the bible calls the “Son of Man”. This story is told most recently in the bible with Jesus representing the Son of Man. We know that he was basically a reject, at least in the eyes of the builders of the day. This however, wasn’t the first time the very same stone had been rejected, for that we have to go back into the remotest antiquity of our endeavor.

Like it or not, America is a Christian nation. By that I mean Christian… not baptist, catholic, protestant, lutheran, or any sect that makes itself or membership exclusive. By Christian I mean using the time proven techniques and doctrines of all different religions or mystery schools without prejudice to get the f’g job done. We do not care where it comes from or who claims ownership, it is ALL owned by US… the People.

Following that, who is the ultimate reject of all time in Christianity? Known by many names in many myths and religions, but we know him best as Lucifer. I can just imagine the gasps from the god fearing church going people of this great nation, but if you actually look at it and do the math, it can’t be any other way. The story of Jesus in the bible IS the story of Lucifer, one of many trailing back into remote antiquity, all curiously having the exact same theme.

The good news is, the “light” that Lucifer bears, is christic consciousness, the key to resurrection. Christ is said to be the true light, the life and light of men. He is the great upsetter in the beginning, and the redeemer (necessary for his own redemption) of Humanity in the end. In a very personal sense, he is both what fucks your life up in the beginning and what saves you in the end.

Doesn’t make sense yet? It probably didn’t make sense to all the other builders either, thus the Stone that ALL the builders refused. The founding fathers knew this tho and the signs are everywhere that America plans to cap her pyramid with what is supposedly the biggest screw up of all time. I’m betting it’s because we know what we’re doing this round, if for no other reason than we have run out of ways to fail.

We’ll go into this more in future posts, but for now I offer the words of Leonard Cohen in his song “Democracy”, I’ve never heard it put more eloquently…

It’s coming through a hole in the air
From those nights in Tienanmen Square
It’s coming from the feel
That this ain’t exactly real
Or it’s real but it ain’t exactly there

From the war against disorder
From the sirens night and day
From the fires of the homeless
From the ashes of the gay
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It’s coming through a crack in the wall
On a visionary flood of alcohol
From the staggering account
Of the Sermon on the Mount
Which I don’t pretend to understand at all

It’s coming from the silence
On the dock of the bay
From the brave, the bold, the battered
Heart of Chevrolet
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It’s coming from the sorrow in the street
The holy places where the races meet
From the homicidal bitchin’
That goes down in every kitchen
To determine who will serve and who will eat

From the wells of disappointment
Where the women kneel to pray
For the grace of God in the desert here
And the desert far away
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on
O mighty ship of state
To the shores of need
Past the reefs of greed
Through the squalls of hate
Sail on, sail on, sail on

It’s coming to America first
The cradle of the best of the worst
It’s here they’ve got the range
The machinery for change
And it’s here they’ve got the spiritual thirst

It’s here the family’s broken
And it’s here the lonely say
That the Heart has got to open
In a fundamental way
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

It’s coming from the women and the men
O darlin’ we’ll be making love again
We’ll be going down so deep
The river’s going to weep
And the mountain’s going to shout “Amen”

It’s coming like the tidal flood
Beneath the lunar sway
Imperial, mysterious
In amorous array
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Sail on, sail on
O mighty ship of state
To the shores of need
Past the reefs of greed
Through the squalls of hate
Sail on, sail on, sail on

I’m sentimental if you know what I mean
I love the country but I can’t stand the scene
And I’m neither left or right
I’m just staying home tonight
Getting lost in that hopeless little screen

But I’m stubborn as those garbage bags
That time cannot decay
I’m junk but I’m still holding up
This little wild bouquet
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
