Immortals of Avalon
Avalon is another name for the hidden realm of the Immortals.
Joseph of Arimathea established the Archetype of the Holy Grail in Glastonbury when he took the Cup of the Last Supper from Old Jerusalem with him to Glastonbury, New Jerusalem, in 37 AD. He recognized the amazing resemblance between Mt. Tabor - where Jesus first immortalised - and Glastonbury Tor. Joseph, himself, immortalised 100 metres from New Ditch earthwork, south of the town of Street in Somerset. As the first keeper of the Holy Grail, in Arthurian legends he often materialises to knights who are pure in heart and Questing the Holy Grail. Some versions of Arthurian legends make Sir Galahad, who becomes immortal after finding the Holy Grail, a descendant of Joseph of Arimathea.
Joseph, a wealthy tin merchant, travelled regularly to Britain from the Middle East. On several occasions he is said to have brought his great-nephew, the boy Jesus, with him. It was Joseph of Arimathea who built the world's first openly Christian church. Previously, Christianity was practised underground in secret out of fear of persecution. The druids of ancient Britain knew of his impending arrival and welcomed him. Joseph of Arimathea's feast day is the same as St Patrick's.
A medieval prophecy of Melkin from the Middle Ages states that when the mystery of Joseph of Arimathea's tomb is revealed to the world, then paradise or peace will come to the whole world. The answer to this mystery is twofold: 1. Joseph of Arimathea gave up his own tomb for Jesus to be placed in it after the crucifixion. The tomb became the Womb of Resurrection. 2. In Glastonbury, Somerset, Joseph of Arimathea has no tomb because he did not die - the Science of Everlasting Life is the secret to be revealed to world...
The Reverend L.S. Lewis, Vicar of St. John's in the 1920's, and several other writers on Glastonbury correctly hypothesized that Mary spent her last mortal years at Glastonbury. What they failed to grasp is the fact that she did not die here. Rather, she was - in the true meaning of the phrase - "born again" and fulfilled the promise that "Ye shall be raised from mortality and uplifted into the vibration of a translated being of Light and Total Freedom to come and go at the speed of love as ye Will." On this point the Roman Catholics came very close to the truth when they ratified the doctrine of the Bodily Assumption of Mary in the early 1950's. When Mary appeared in Garabandal, Spain in 1961 she had the physical body of an 18 year old - not too shabby for someone about 2000 years old. The 70th anniversary of Mary's materialisation at Fatima, Portugal - May 13th 1987 - was an excellent opportunity to increase the world's awareness of this Truth of physical immortality, for this event coincided with the Wesak Full Moon of that year. The Wesak - Scorpio Full Moon is the most spiritually potent day of the lunar year. On this day the Church of the First Born/the Immortals of Avalon/Shambhalla/Penglai Shan/Pulaki - the company of all physically immortal beings - generates its love and blessings for the new solar cycle that culminates on the following Easter. Easter of 1988 was additionally graced by the powerful Saturn-Uranus conjunctions of that year. Unique in its magickal intensity was the triple union of Mars, Saturn and Uranus in February of '88. The energies released by these interplanetary configurations abundantly clarified the spiritual and scientific laws of Immortality for large masses of people. Within the star map of the Glastonbury Zodiac, these events culminated over the figure of Arthur...
Mary's Translation opened the heart chakra that is Glastonbury to a wider dimension. All prophecies point to a similar and greater event happening at Glastonbury in the near future...
Bacon worked in Oxford and Paris, and produced many writings. His activities brought him into conflict with the authorities of his era, and he spent time in prison. Pope Clement IV supported Bacon's work for a number of years. 300 years after his disappearance, around the time of Shakespeare, Roger Bacon had come to symbolise the archetypal magician and alchemist. The 20th century Immortalist writer, Annalee Skarin, regarded him as one of the great Immortals. His life has stimulated the imaginations of several 20th century novelists. There are two outstanding novels about Bacon that are worth tracking down: The Brazen Head by John Cowper Powys; and Doctor Mirabilis by James Blish.
Among the special abilities attributed to Bacon were bodily teleportation, and the power to expand or contract the subjective experience of time. One thing is certain: Roger Bacon devoted all his efforts towards the attainment of physical immortality. May his dedication to the Great Work inspire others to devote themselves to the same goal.
