Welcome to Our Website!
Welcome to the Official and International site of the Ancient Martinist Order.
Our primary Goal is to bring you information about Martinism and about our particular Order - The Ancient Martinist Order.
We feel that the times are changing and that the hour has arrived to change a little bit the position of our Order, giving a bit more information about us...
For centuries, the visible and invisible schools of mysteries had the privilege and the power to access an ancient source of knowledge and to give to very few the access to it. It was then necessary to pass several tests in order to prove, to him and to all those who were already Initiates, his true interior and external force; his true will and his strongest perseverance.
If the candidate passed all those tests, he would be in a condition to be received among the enlightened ones.
Those tests, those proofs and those sworn and professed commitments, associated with the presence of the sacred forces invoked by the group, especially by the one who would establish the link between the visible and the invisible (transforming an act of pure theater in a sacred ritual), was and still is, named: Initiation.
We must try to understand this word in a sacred sense. It as nothing to do with the belonging to a club or to a social or financial elite. It is something different, more high, more elevated. It is a need, a calling to serve, to serve All. It is the will to cooperate in the project of the Creator.
We see, every day, hundreds of people being cheated in false traditions, huge superstitions, false religions;
We see, every day, people trying to find a Way to their lives and going into paths that will not even give them hope.
We see, every day, injustice growing and true honor falling into disgrace. The evil being put on an altar and the Divine being criticized and destroyed, buried and stepped on.
We see, every day, the rise of movements of the new age, only making big plans composed of teachings not apprehended, using strange words to describe simple things, and making jokes about the Sacred, giving workshops about esoterism, and using that word to sell, sell and sell...
True esoterism cannot be sold. It is conquered. Slowly! In a process in which each person develops his own true Self, in order to achieve a higher comprehension of the reality of the world that surrounds us.
A flower is not only a vegetable. It has life, colors, perfumes. It reacts to external stimuli like the Sun and the rain. It is... Unique. Like the plant, each one of us is unique. Each one of us as life, color, perfume. But more than that... Each one of is, as a divine spark, unique, but linked to all the other sparks. Like every little grain of sand or every little drop of water belongs to the planet earth; so thus we also belong to only one reality. All this must be truly comprehended In a full-scale manner, and not just in a limited way.
There is much to be done and little time to do it. The time is now! Not yesterday, and certainly not tomorrow.
In Martinism, we can only give for free what you have received for free. The Truth. Not a truth... THE Truth!
