The Brotherhood of Light Lessons for students who enjoy an online, interactive environment.
light.org is an internet resource for those searching for true esoteric insight that can only come from combining the best of the past with the promise of the future.

The Brotherhood of Light Lessons and the Aquarian Age
A new spiritual dispensation is at hand, where the love and compassion of the Piscean Age are enhanced by the wisdom that comes from a deeper understanding of the Nature of Reality brought by the new Aquarian Age and thus Religion is wed to Science. Our Brotherhood of Light lessons are the bridge that caries us into this New Age by combining the best of the Ancient Teachings with the wonders of our new discoveries. Nothing stays the same we must all adapt to the flood of new information.
Why Astrology and the Tarot are so important to understanding Traditional Knowledge
The word Kabala signifies traditional knowledge. It thus refers to the Oral Law, as handed down from antiquity; and embraces the occult traditions of all lands and all peoples. Often it is used merely as referring to the esoteric doctrines of the Jews; but in its broader sense it includes also the secret doctrine of other races. This secret doctrine, common to many lands, was jealously guarded from the profane, and was never permitted to pass into writing except in such ambiguous terms as to baffle the uninitiated as to its true purport. In this sense the sacred books of the world, including the Avesta, the Vedas and the Bible are largely kabalistical; for they set forth traditions that are capable of an inner, or esoteric, interpretation. In fact, there are usually several interpretations possible, each more inner version revealing a deeper truth to those who have advanced along the path far enough to comprehend it.
And this seems the proper place to point out that the unwritten kabala, like the written kabala, is set forth in symbolical language, with purposeful blinds and subterfuges to confuse the uninitiated; so that of the few who undoubtedly exist at the present day who have received it, most remain in as much ignorance of its true interpretation as the majority of students do after studying the more accessible written kabala. This unwritten kabala has been transmitted only through certain secret schools. Those receiving it well merit what is given to them. They are left to their own devices in the matter of interpretation. And because the real keys to its interpretationÃ³astrology and the tarotÃ³have been largely ignored, or distorted, they have floundered sadly in arriving at its meaning. Whether written or unwritten, the kabala is a philosophy correlated to esoteric astrology as exemplified by the tarot; and it can only be comprehended fully by those who perceive the true relation between astrological energies and their pictured tarot exemplification.

Aquarius: The 11th Sign of the Zodiac
January 20 thru February 20
Keyword: I Know
Do and Think Unto Others as You Would Have Them Do and Think Unto You.
In the Reign of Aquarius...
How Will You Express Yourself?
...The true function of Religion is to influence the pattern of human conduct. Powerful material changes and orthodoxy blind us to the fact that the significance of religion is even greater than that of technological and scientific advancement. Science, which is classified information, gives power to accomplish. Whether that power will be used for the benefit of humankind or will enable the few to subjugate and exploit the many, is a religious consideration. One's attitude toward life determines whether selfishness will rule, or whether the humanitarian spirit which characterizes the finer side of Aquarius will prevail...

“PERSONAL alchemy embraces the various changes which the devotee of The Religion of the Stars must make in his manner of living as he ascends the spiral ladder in his effort to become that crowning glory of earth, the perfect man, or adept.
“The most important function of a religion is to instruct people how best to live. Such instruction as is given must necessarily be based upon the kind and amount of information possessed by the religion. And its ability actually to help those who embrace it depends even to a greater extent upon the reliability of the information upon which its doctrines are founded. If the information it possesses is largely false, to that extent, instead of being helpful to its devotees, it is a hindrance to their true adjustment to life and its problems.
“A vast amount of research has indicated that inner-plane energies have as much influence over human life as do outer-plane energies. Thus in The Religion of the Stars in addition to facts relating to the material plane, and teaching each individual and each group how to live to the maximum of cooperative helpfulness, to the most certain happiness, and to the utmost spirituality, important facts are taught about the inner plane and its energies. The history, nature and future possibilities of the human soul are explained. The power of thought as a factor in human and other types of life is emphasized over and over again. The vibratory emanations of objects are classified. And the effect, use and cultivation
of the emotions are given detailed consideration.
“Yet not one of these things, nor any other factor of human life, can be completely understood in all its significance unless it is linked, either by correspondence or by its relation to a given birth chart, with astrological energies. Therefore, even though we avail ourselves of every important finding of material science, go far deeper into psychology than the most erudite materialists, and leave no stone unturned to gather information in this world and from the realms of the afterlife; because the adequate interpretation of any of it, insofar as the human soul is concerned, is impossible without the aid of astrology, and because astrology affords the best possible roadmap for guidance to the most effective and highest type of life, we call our religion The Religion of the Stars...”
