The Emerald Tablets Of Thoth The Atlantean – (2016) 4 stars

Run time: 2 hours, 57 minutes. There are rumors that the Emerald Tables were lost or passed down through the centuries and first came from ancient Egypt. I’ve also heard that they were channeled directly from Thoth. Now that I have listened to them in their entirety, and based on how they were written and what they represent, I don’t think they have a supernatural or ancient origin. Instead, I believe they were written in the 1910s or so, when several different factions of spiritualists were coming up with their own ways of Ascension and Enlightenment. Among the rivals of this Hermetic philosophy were the Blavatsky crowd, the channelers such as those from the German Vril and Thule Societies, and also the budding group of Rosicrucians.

That is not to say that the Emerald Tables are without any merit. What has been done here is that many of the contemporary trappings have been removed and esoteric concepts in many ways simplified, as we aren’t inundated with a large number of cosmological details such as are found in the truly ancient Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead. These Tablets went with a decidedly Egyptian them. Compare that to how Blavatsky went with Eastern philosophy, and how the Gnostics, Rosicrucians and the Urantia followers stayed close to their Abrahamic roots.

Thoth tells us, allegedly, that the Tablets must be read countless times until the underlying message is profoundly understood. Yet the language is simple and the concepts are easy enough to follow along when one has been introduced to other alchemically founded dogmas. The writings are kept at a basic level to allow one to extrapolate and philosophize over. This is the work upon which all subsequent works must be based, so that the basic guide cannot be corrupted but only expounded upon. The Emerald Tablets may even be too simple for some. Personally, I have mixed feelings about this, as I am accustomed to being overburdened by names, events and rules that students of the Mystery Schools must adhere to. By making a dogma too simple, it allows the masses to quickly overlook it and move on to the next trendy thing to come along. At the same time, if one adds a ton of information that one must wade through as if walking through a swamp, it becomes more of an obstacle than a guide for finding Truth.

I suppose it is up to the individual to decide if they want to be buried in ritual, such as modern Catholics and Masons are, with little actual spirituality, or to be thrust right into the Love and Light teachings of the New Agers, where one can work on their spirit right away. I’ve come to the conclusion over the last six years or so that Truth is largely subjective to the individual, so no single Truth will ever satisfy the diversity of all of humanity.

This, of course, is the precise reason why dogmas are hammered into the heads of the many, because if we all asked ourselves, what works best for me, then we would all stray away from the religious / political systems of control, and potentially we would be happier human beings as a result. Happiness is what our leaders don’t want, because if we were all happy there would be no need to look up to these leaders for answers on how we can find that very same, elusive happiness.

We do see the Savior meme that is present in virtually all mythologies, when Thoth tells us how he’s out of town for the moment, but will come back later. A big difference here is than in Christianity, Islam and Judaism, god will come back to Enlighten the people. In Thoth’s case, he’s telling us, like the Gnostics do also, that we must Enlighten ourselves. So far, what I have liked about Hermeticism is that it is concise and to the point, laying out its foundation with very little obfuscation, like Catholicism and Masonry, and without a long period of initiate training as seen in many other Mystery School dogmas, including the Egyptian schools upon which the Tablets are based.

I already have a mixed pot of Buddhism, Gnosticism and Hinduism, so this is another set of highly philosophical ideas that I can add to that mix and use to shape my own personal worldview. Note that in all these concepts / doctrines, there is less of an emphasis on materialism and more on spirituality. That, in my opinion, is the direction all of us should be contemplating.
