You may or may not be aware, that beyond the General Forum, there are boards related to the Seven Orders of Urianism. If you look at the Structure tab, on our site here, there is a description about what this means... Yet, I will reiterate the concepts of the Pillars and the Orders here.
THE SEVEN ORDERS:
*The Brown Order:
This can also be called The Tan Order, even the Stone Order... It corresponds to the plane of consciousness we live within, known in Kabbalah as Malkuth. The board is for posts about practical things with a wide range -- health and hygiene, nature, herbalism, prepping and survivalism, even things like jewelry making (hard crafts). It could also be about practical things like investing (safe places for religious people to invest or do banking for instance), or how to learn to Code and Program, or Day Trade (ways Urians can make money while staying separate). Indeed, it can even be a place to post about your pets, or just common real day-to-day issues and events... It's About Our Lives Here & Now.
Ultimately, the Brown/Tan Order is for those in the faith who are called to serve The Way in practical and tangible ways, like Amish Barn Raisings... Literally building homes, churches, ranches... Indeed, animal husbandry, farming. The wearers of the Brown or Tan Sash are The Salt of the Earth.
*The Violet Order:
This is my own personal order, and I prefer to call this the Indigo or Violet Order, but most call it Purple. It corresponds to what is, in Kabbalah, referred to as Yesod -- which is a state and a plane of consciousness, meaning foundation, and symbolizing the bridge and balance between empty and full, between heaven and earth (it is symbolically the womb or phallus).
In Urianism it is the order for those who are fascinated with all things mystical, metaphysical, paranormal, theurgical, and supernatural -- more than this, even the scientific and pseudo-scientific, including things like theoretical physics or psychic-spiritual cosmology, angelology and demonology. Its priests and priestesses are envisioned much as the ancient magi or magicians, the seers and oracles. The board is, therefore, a place to post about all such subjects.
*The Orange Order:
Could also be called the Vermillion Order, it is related to what Kabbalah calls Hod, or Glory, as in the Glory of God. Kabbalah itself is a very complex and dynamic/layered topic, with multitudes of nuances, that Urians are encouraged to at least gain a basic understanding about... But, in Urianism, The Orange Order, or Order of Hod, is for those who are by nature artists, musicians, graphic designers, dancers, etcetera etcetera... Theirs is to use art and music to glorify God and uplift human spirits toward contemplations of the Divine.
The Orange Board would be a good place to post things about arts and crafts, music projects, even music that compliments our path and ideal (spiritual, positive, non-secular), and even to share arts and crafts you are working on.
*The Green Order:
This order is related, Kabbalistically, to the plane/state of Netzach, or Victory, and in Urianism to political and social activism. Always in religion and circles of mysticism or spirituality, there are politically minded types of people, who are very active in the political arena or in their local community as activists. Urianism envisions a time when there are many of us and this order exists for those who express their faith through politics and social activism.
Such things as politics and society, issues there around, are therefore discussed, with related posts and links, within the Green Board... as well as current events.
Urians are fully encouraged to be active in the earth, struggling for many causes of The Kingdom -- such as animal rights, environmentalism (reasoned and sensible), racial harmony (not division or reverse racism, but integration and wholeness, the erasing of color lines)... We are against torture and, so, often speak against people being imprisoned for their religious beliefs or in opposition to tyranny. We are against things like child abuse, rape, spousal abuse, sexism (whether hate toward women or hate toward men), and we are against the so-called New World Order or Great Reset Agenda -- which we view as Satanic, Anti-Christ, Luciferian, Communistic, Autocratic, and altogether evil and oppressive.
We would fully support Urians going to the Freedom Rallies in Canada or Washington, for instance, because Democracy is far more conducive to spreading Urian teachings and spiritual idealism than is godless, radical secular tyranny.
As those in the West who lean Right, tend to more often agree with our traditional religious values, as well as supporting the right to freedom of religion/speech, as well as our position on the Covid vaccine and the New World Order, we have been increasingly "right seeming." Though, a careful examination of our teachings, will reveal many aspects that those on The Right would despise, such as things like environmentalism and animal rights.
*The Golden Order:
Sometimes called the Yellow Order, this is related to the Kabbalistic Sephiroth of Tiphereth (Tipheret), or Beauty. Truth is beauty and beauty is truth -- so the philosopher's say. The Gold Order is a ministerial order, a teaching order... To minister is to teach and too teach is to minister. Gold Order Members are also those who take responsibility for leadership, determining to spread and organize the Faith in an active way. To choose to be a minister, is too be a teacher, and to minister is also too lead. The Gold Order Board, therefore, is the least active, as it would be the place for those who are out there preaching and teaching, organizing and leading, to discuss their activities and compare notes. It's the board for posting printable pamphlets, brochures, or advertising conferences, church schedules, etc.
*The Red Order:
This order will be the most controversial in due course, should Urianism succeed and rise, because it is related to the Kabbalistic Sephirot of Geburah (Gevurah), or Judgement. It is also called The Crimson Order or the Order of Fire, the Seraphim Order. In every religion, in every political and social movement from times immemorial, there have always been zealots, fanatics, militant minded individuals, with burning hearts full of passion for their cause.
Every nation has its patriots, every religion has its holy warriors. Christianity had its crusaders, while Islam has its Jihadists, and the Old Testament had its warrior-prophets and militant patriarchs... Even in Hinduism there are militant factions, and Buddhism and Taoism have always had their warrior monks. The Sikhs of India have been forced, by persecution from Islamists and Hindus, to be warriors, and they are even referred to as Warrior Saints, and carry a sacred dagger with them everywhere they go.
In this frame --rather than reject and shame such individuals, in a New Age or Secular-Modernist way-- we have elected to direct and channel such individuals into the Red Order. There are many rules and disciplines applied to them within the teachings, to balance out their innately dire nature. As Uriel has rejected pacifism as a victim mentality and has taught us to be balanced in our approach to life in the world, he/it/she has seen fit to call forth those who are warriors in their spirit, to be future defenders and protectors of the Faith.
There are those who disdain this idea, but such ones lack pragmaticism, and tend to extol and uphold those who fight and do harm in the name of their own causes (despising those who stand for God or righteousness, while glorifying those who stand up for idols and secularist causes).
Neither here nor there, The Red Order is not primarily about war or martial actions, so much as an Evangelizing Order of those who are most fiery and passionate, the fire and brimstone preachers of Urianism, as well as the future lawyers, and even those work in law enforcement or as bailiffs, prison guards, or in such diverse fields as butchers. It is of note that a Urian butcher would have a heavy charge, in that they are called to master methods to kill livestock quick, clean, and as humanely and compassionately as is possible. Ours is always the pragmatic ideal, that when we must fight, when we must defend, we must strive to do so with speed, finality, and without hate or cruelty.
The Red Board is therefore for discussion of things like martial arts, military history, law and lawsuits, crime and punishment, criminal codes and penal systems, etc... But also, a sanctuary board for those who are the most passionate and zealous, whose manner of speaking and thinking, being fiery, can offend other members. More than this, however, it is a place for discussing Spiritual Warfare techniques -- the use of prayer and symbolic rites in a defense way against the forces of darkness and evil, and is an order of the exorcists of the Faith, and so also a board for discussion of demonology and angelology, with psychic self-defense.
*The Blue Order:
This is the order associated with the Sephiroth (Kabbalah) of Chesed, or Mercy/Compassion. As there are always people in religious causes, and in all causes religious or not, that are militant in nature, so there are also always people who are drawn to be angels of healing and love, beacons of compassion and charity.
The vision of this order, in fact, is in my heart vision, based on the real world group known as the Sisters of Mercy, and the example of Mother Theresa.
It is to become an order devoted to helping the poor, the lowly, the afflicted, the elderly and the infirmed, balancing out the Order of Judgement by its grace and patience. Its priests and priestesses, its ministers and adherents, are those who walk in the Divine Love of God (Agape).
The board of the Blue Order is for links to charities that are in line with our precepts (the twenty laws) and for organizing charitable drives or activities. As we are few and scattered, not much going on there; but the hope is that one day we shall see the board full of events and images, and reports about such events, like food drives or homeless shelters run by Urians.
THE THREE PILLARS:
There is no social liberalism in Urianism. That is to say, the Twenty Laws are not optional. If you don't like the commandments, don't want to follow them, you're not a Urian... simple as that. We do not negotiate, water down, pick and choose -- our teachings are what they are. Maybe this attitude will sabotage our growth in the long run, but oh well. I will personally keep carrying these teachings to other worlds, long after I've left this one behind.
The Pillars again correspond to the Kabbalistic Tree of Life, and represent Mildness (Middle), Severity (Left), and Mercy (Right). Now this is looking at the tree of life from the outside, if you step into it and face outward the pillars would be reversed... but neither here nor there, in Urianism the pillars, like the orders, are more about the future than the present, having real meaning only when the faith has grown, and even more so, when it has established a civil enclave (a community).
Every Urian is asked to undergo thorough self-reflection and examination, a long and often painful process of integration and individuation, facing your self over and over again in the mirror of truth, so that you can bring forth who you really are, what your soul nature is about, and indeed, what you are in your essential nature. Some find that they are rather severe, others that they are very meek and passive, and still others are a mixed bag of expressions. I've met people who literally had almost no dark side -- and all the psychoanalysis in the world could not bring it forth or reveal anything more than a rather childlike innocence and naivety. I've known others who, in their authentic and truthful nature, are just jerks... it's who they are, without apology or excuse, they like being that way and revel in that nature. Still others that I've known, and that we see every day in the world around us, have been completely consumed and absorbed into their Shadow, their dark side; they love the darkness, they revel in the darkness, the seek to imitate and embody evil and the demonic, and love that it offends and frightens people... in death they become living shadow people.
The Urian position is summed up in this statement:
If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you.
If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.
– Gospel of Thomas, verse 70
In other words:
The truth will set you free.
Most people, unfortunately, are completely blind to their dark side, and constantly justify, deny, and scapegoat others in order to escape feeling bad about themselves... Still others, refuse to see that they have any good points, but constantly put themselves down and verbally beat themselves into a psychic bloody mess. The existence of something in between, that is nature, is ignored or unknown altogether (we are wired to breed, eat, sleep, excrete, etc...).
Neither here nor there, choosing an Order, like choosing a Pillar, is about Knowing Your Self. Indecisive and dishonest sorts don't know their core nature and true motives, their chief love. We often love what we hate and hate what we love, or want to be the very things we despise. It is a process to really get to know your true motives and core love.
*The Middle Pillar:
This is the path and pillar of those who are, in short, non-committal. It is really the default, in some ways. Yet, for those who consciously choose this, it is for those who believe and strive in themselves for a balance between the hard and the soft, the selfish and the unselfish, lawfulness and liberality, masculine and feminine (tough and nurturing), and tend to be the intellectuals or thinkers more than the feelers... they weigh things and, perhaps, feel that there is a time and a season for all things (Ecclesiastes 3).
Balance or Equilibrium is the ultimate essence of the Middle Pillar; but, for most, it will simply be the path/pillar of indecision.
For myself, it is a personal perspective, that within me are all expressions -- the hard and the soft, the light and the dark, the severe and the merciful, love and lust, judgement and compassion, etc... etc... a love of the day and the starry night, of storms and of clear skies.................. I am that I am, and I will be what I will be -- but all is given to God, for better or worse, "Just as I am, Oh Lord!" And so, I choose the Gray Robes of the Middle Pillar... and my goal is ascension straight up the middle.
*The Right Pillar:
There are those who, in their truest nature are soft, meek, peaceful, yearning for love and tranquility above all things, seeking always to keep the peace and maintain the common good, in their heart unable to bear to even look upon the darkness or the harshness. They will have trouble accepting the full-spectrum that is the Urian view, for they are intolerant of any hint of hardness or judgement, but are blind to anything within God or the creation that is not rainbows and flowers.
It is very difficult for so-called Light Workers to acknowledge the Dark/Severe Side of God, even as it is difficult for them to see the shadow within themselves -- and I've often found them to be the most judgmental and intolerant of humans, for they constantly look down on and judge those they regard as less holy or good. Such ones are actually rather Left Pillar, while seeing themselves as fully on the side of the Pillar of Brightest Light, for they are intolerant, rigid, and self-centered.
In occult circles, the Right Hand Path is for the religious, the light worker, those who look to a higher power, and draw on that higher power to work healing and bring peace. Anyone who is devoutly religious is often considered to be Right Hand Path (RHP).
In Urianism, however, the Right Hand Path, or White Robes, are for those who look to people like Jesus Christ, Mother Theresa, Gandhi (etc) as examples of how to conduct themselves as Urians. They are those who will always believe that compassion and forgiveness is the highest good and will apply the teachings in the kindest and softest approach possible, leaning toward patience and charity. In more general terms, a white robe Urian is more altruistic than they are pragmatic, and tend to take the higher road, acting from a generally pacifistic nature.
*The Left Pillar:
The pillar of Severity, or Black Pillar is defined, in occult circles, as the path of self-focus, rather that outer focus... It puts the individual at the center, the god within, rather than external the Supreme Deity, and most LHP types tend to express the Satanic in symbolism, being diabolical in attitude and fringe in expression.
In Urianism, the occult ideal of the LHP does not exist, save in the Qlippothic (the negative reflection of the Tree of Life -- thus, the Tree of Death or the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil).
The Left Pillar or Left Path in Urianism, or Black Robes, is for those who most believe in self-control, orthodoxy, martial discipline (in self and society), focused on law and order, intolerance of evil and chaos. They emphasize the needfulness of a clean and orderly society, where privilege and honors are earned by those who prove they are worthy, and where being overly permissive is viewed as a road to dissolution.
As Urians they should not be hateful, but there is room for the ideal of Tough Love, and this is perhaps the best motto for the Left Pillar Urian. A Left Pillar Urian is also a person who finds within themselves a true nature that is harsh or hard, severe, austere, and/or just militant and zealous... A dark angel of heaven, who wishes to smite the wicked and banish the darkness. A Black Robed individual with a Red Sash is a truly intense and warlike soul, but is still devoted unto one and the same Supreme Being.
The ideal is a big house, for different types and expressions of service and devotion unto The One God; all working together in the common cause of The Kingdom. The Orders and Pillars are intended to balance each other, even as they will often contend and tug at each other. No order should seek to banish another, but merely to agree to disagree when things become contentious.
Such is the summary... and long I know it is.
Peace Be Unto You
