The Master said:
Isn’t it a pleasure to study AND practice what you have learned? Isn’t it also great when friends visit you and convey their wisdom to you?
If one remains not annoyed when he is not understood by people around him; isn’t he a SAGE?
Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, scrapped Knight and Dame titles from the Australian Honour System. This led to the misconception, that those titles bestowed onto a Squire/Page from any Order (like ours or E.g. the Order of the Hospitallers); do not exist anymore. That is NOT so, and they are still bestowed onto eligible persons.
NO – this website of the Order of the World Templar Lords is NOT just another group of so-called Templar Knights.
YES – we represent and follow the same ideas and ideals of so many groups, which do a great job and follow the basics of monarchy, nobility, chivalry, Knighthood as-such and maybe even the St Bernhard’s Rules.
What was kept alive through our history was the knowledge our predecessors acquired with the sword and defended it with their lives. Nowadays we have to be very careful when adding new blood. It could lead to the unfortunate fragmentation of our Order. The existing knowledge must be preserved, promoted and passed on by all means. Over-individualism cannot fulfill such a task.
Don’t ever be angry, it’s a punishment you give to yourself for somebody else’s mistake. You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you, that means everyone can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.
A religious person will do what he is told, no matter what is right. A spiritual person will do what is right, no matter what he is told.
The fundamental insight is then, that the Order is no purpose, but a means. It is probably the prerequisite for the image of a higher human culture and insight; but not the cause of it. Rather, it lies exclusively in the presence of capable members with culture and dedication. Thus, the prerequisite for the existence of a higher understanding and knowledge is not the Order, but the able and committed members.
The goodness of an Order cannot be judged by the cultural level or power significance of its members, compared to the rest of the world, but solely by the degree of the goodness of that Order for the chosen people. Conversely, a religious Order can be described as bad if, at its cultural level, it consecrates the knowledge of this Order only in its composition. The Order does not represent a content but a form. So it does not give a value meter for the goodness of itself.
As a small group, we keep the truth (any truth) alive, even if it hurts; as we say. Our prerogative is to say, that all Templar Knights by heart, should unite in the spirit of our idol, Grandmaster Jacques de Moley. A perfect example is lead by the OSMTH and we all should be in constant communication with them.
