About The Modern Mystery School

The lineage of King Salomon


Lineage is a key and important factor in determining the legitimacy, integrity and authority that an authentic Mystery School holds.

The lineage of the Modern Mystery School (MMS) dates back to the times of King Salomon and has therefore, over 3,000 years of history and lineage. While the mystery school tradition is much older than that, the lineage of the MMS and its teachings can be verified and traced back to the teachings of King Salomon himself.

Lineage, by definition, means a lineal descent from an ancestor, ancestry, or pedigree. The Modern Mystery School has persisted through time an ancient tradition of sharing knowledge from teacher to student, affirmed by the holy process of initiation.

Modern Mystery School: Core Values & Beliefs

Core Beliefs

We believe that all humans have come from a Divine Origin and are therefore made from a Divine substance, therefore in a sense are Gods and Goddesses!

We believe that all humans are Eternal, that we have never been born and therefore we can never die. Yes, we have a physical body, but so does the butterfly have a shell, a larva that then transforms into their true nature. We believe that we are in the process, of becoming our true selves!

We believe that all humans have all the knowledge we need, and that whatever questions we have, the answers reside within ourselves. The Mystery School was established only to assist humans to find those answers, not to give them!

We believe that humans are constructed by three components, physical body, soul and spirit and that all three of these need to be taken care of through wisdom, nurturing, and healing. The Mystery School Lineage provides this with ancient metaphysical tools used and perfected over thousands of years.

The Lineage has focused on working with and creating tools to handle the complicated machine or the computer of the human vehicle, what we call the MIND. Our tools are aimed to help each individual take back control of this vehicle for themselves so they can create a better life. We believe that all of our physical manifestations start within the mind thus it is so important to take good care of it!

We believe that humans are born as two different genders, male and female, as so proven by biology and that the science of this is accurate. We then believe in the individual’s freedom to regard themselves as whatever or whoever makes them happy, but that the facts are indisputable that our foundational physicality is that we are all born either male or female and that there are undeniable differences in that foundation.

We furthermore believe that we have certain archetypes for us to follow and strive to be like, these all being Gods and Goddesses of ancient times on earth, bringing us good values and traits for us to follow and admire. These archetypes have inspired us humans for thousands of years and they define our lives in every way, allowing us to overcome any obstacle that comes before us, to grow greater than our previous self and rise victorious in life. Without these divine archetypes we would not nor could we attain such heights of human potential.

We believe in the essential goodness of all humans or their capacity for such, even though history may show different. Humans are innately good, and with the correct environmental influence and inner self work we can accomplish our highest human potential to do good!

We believe in the right of self-determination as well as taking full responsibility for one’s own thoughts, actions and words in all situations. We believe that the true ownership of those things is laid at the feet of the individual self, whether it bares good or bad fruit for themselves or others. We believe that the character and integrity of a individual is far more important and meaningful than the identification of one by a group or a collective.

We believe people should have the freedom to express themselves in a healthy way, unburdened by any constraint to conform to a particular group or person’s personal opinions or acceptance of those views.

We believe in the power of humans to create a better world and that with the correct nurturing, we can accomplish that goal. This would not be accomplished with any one organization (including the Modern Mystery School), religion or otherwise such, but rather through the power of the people themselves, led by their love of freedom, acceptance of themselves and others and peace!

Core values

We value life as we know it, that sacred spark from the universe that can and will ignite the world to become a better place for us all.

We value every individual, no matter who or what they are, by what name they go, or what ideas they have. We will do our best to make certain that they can express themselves in the most healthy and positive way possible for humans.

We value that, after the awakening of the inner being, there is a need for self-expression of their soul, their inner feelings, and thoughts. We welcome that expression and see it as a part of our organization, as a part of who and what we are.

We value being different, we see it as being unique. We welcome those who suffer from the ignorance and judgment of others who do not understand nor accept that uniqueness.

We value society, as it has given us the opportunity to serve the greater good to a larger audience.

We value Governments of countries who try to do their best to take care of their citizens.

We value those who want to create a positive change in the world and we gladly support their efforts.
