Nazis & the Occult

Selected Quotes from Jim Marrs' Book Rule By Secrecy


Posted 05 March 2002

One of the early German Workers party members was [publisher Dietrich] Eckart, often referred to as the spiritual founder of National Socialism. Eckart saw in Hitler the malleable leader he had been seeking and was soon introducing the new member to the right social circles in Munich and his intellectual friends in the Thule [pronounced too-lee] Society.
Although Eckart's role in metaphysical practices as well as in the foundation of the Nazi party has been marginalized by most historians, it is significant that Hitler clearly understood Eckart's importance. He ended his infamous book Mein Kampf with these words, "And I want also to reckon among [nazi heroes] that man, who, as one of the best, by words and by thoughts and finally by deeds, dedicated his life to the awakening of his, of our nation; Dietrich Eckart.'
As Eckart lay dying in 1923, he said, 'Follow Hitler! He will dance, but it is I who have called the tune. I have initiated him into the 'Secret Doctrine', opened his centers in vision and given him the means to communicate with the Powers. Do not mourn for me: I shall have influenced history more than any other German.' --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 160-1

[Birdman note: Since I started reading a book on synchronicity a couple of days ago, a couple of interesting synchronicities have popped up. One of them is reading about the theory of Sitchin that mankind is actually a creation of ancient astronauts (see yesterday's posts), and then reading the following in Jim Marrs' book Rule By Secrecy (p 155):]
"To counter this communist threat and the spreading chaos, more than two dozen right-wing nationalist organizations sprang up in Munich alone. Among them was the Thule Society, named after the mythic German homeland of icebound Ultima Thule. The logo of the society was a swastika superimposed over a sword.
Thule, in the minds of German occultists, was a Teutonic Atlantis, a mystical prehistoric island in the northern climes believed to be the home of a long-vanished civilization of extraterrestrials who lost awareness of their origins by interbreeding with humans. Eckhart, Sebottendorff, and their followers believed that the advanced science of Thule had survived through the centuries, handed down by select initiates into this secret and esoteric wisdom. Thulists were continually seeking this wisdom through rituals designed to contact superior beings. --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 155

'The inner core within the Thule Group were all Satanists who practiced Black Magic', wrote Trevor Ravenscroft. 'That is to say, they were solely concerned with raising their consciousness by means of rituals to an awareness of evil and non-human intelligences in the Universe and with achieving a means of communication with the Intelligences. And the Master-Adept of this circle was Dietrich Eckart.
It is well-known that in Munich during those turbulent postwar years, there were several hundred unsolved 'political' murders and kidnappings. 'And it was from among these missing persons, most of whom were either Jews or Communists, that we must look to find the 'sacrificial victims' who were murdered in the rites of 'Astrological Magic' caried out by Dietrich Eckart and the innermost circle of the Thule Gesellschaft' charged Ravenscroft, who claimed it was a 'well-known fact' that the Thulists were a 'Society of Assassins'. --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 155
[Birdman note: One cannot help noticing the parallel between this and 'Jewish Ritual Murder'. Were the nazis discovering something the Jews had known for centuries? Or were both simply a part of the satanism which continues to be practiced in the present day, as described by such authors as John DeCamp, Jon Rappoport and Cathy O'Brien, all of whom have been mentioned on these pages?]

Blavatsky, in forming the German branch of the Theosophical Society in 1884, brought her belief in channeling, reincarnation, racial superiority and extraterrestrial visitation to people who later would form the theological basis of Nazism. ... 'The rationale behind many later Nazi projects can be traced back ... to ideas first popularized by Blavatsky,' agreed Levenda, who detailed connections with other European secret organizations. 'We have the Theosophical Society, the OTO [Ordo Templi Orientis or Oriental Templars], [Dr Rudolf Steiner's] Anthroposophical Society and [the Order of] the Golden Dawn all intertwined in incestuous embrace. --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 154

Theosophy drew its thinking from the same early philosophers venerated by the secret societies of Freemasonry, the Illuminati and the Round Tables -- Plato and Pythagoras as well as the Egyptian Mystery schools. According to author Nesta Webster, it was evident that Blavatsky also drew heavily from the Hebrew Cabala and Talmud, cementing the connection with the Ancient Mysteries. --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy 153
[Birdman note: The 'blight-wing' often links Jews and Freemasons in the same dirt bag, so it is a tad ironic to find that they have the same roots as nazism. But then perhaps that is not so surprising if we reflect that Hitler was probably the grandson of a Rothschild, as Goldberg, Epperson and others have detailed elsewhere.]

The 'Secret Doctrine' imparted to Hitler by Eckart and University of Munich Professor Haushofer was an amalgamation of concepts and philosophies largely stemming from the work of Madam Blavatsky and her Theosophical Society.
Blending Eastern mysticism, occultism, and hidden history, the doctrine concerns the effort to understand man's origins. According to Ravenscroft, 'When the Third Eye [believed by many to be the pineal gland between the eyes] had been opened to a full vision of the Akashic Record [the mystical hidden record of mankind], the initiate [of the Secret Doctrine] became a living witness of the whole evolution of the world and of humanity. Traveling back through tremendous vistas of time, the very spirit origin of the earth and of man was unveiled to him, and he was able to follow the unfolding destiny of mankind through ever-changing conditions of life and cycles of development.'
In this doctrine, nonhuman visitors to Earth long ago produced by genetic manipulation 'divine-human hybrid beings, sort of God-men' divided into seven subraces -- the Rmoahals, Tlavarli, Toltecs, Turanians, Aryans, Akkadians, and Mongols. During this process there were many mistakes, resulting in mutations such as the 'giants' of biblical and Nordic mythology. These races lived through progressive life cycles during the time of fabled Atlantis.
With the destruction of Atlantis, they were scattered around the world and their mental and physical attributes began to degenerate. Their life spans decreased significantly. While their thought processes in the material world sharpened, 'these faculties of thought and sense perception were gained at the price of a total loss of all magical powers over nature and over the life forces in the human organism,' wrote Ravenscroft. With this loss of intuitive powers, these early humans were taught by their creators that everything on Earth was directed by invisible 'gods', and that they should serve these 'gods' unreservedly. 'Above all, they were taught to respect and protect the purity of their blood', he added. --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 161-2

It is interesting to note that the term 'Aryan' (a Sanskrit word meaning noble) until the time of Hitler usually referred merely to people using Indo-European languages rather than any race. However, in both scholarly and occult studies the term is also connected to an Indo-European speaking people traceable to prehistoric times. These people were of unknown origins, but due to common language characteristics many scholars believe they came from northern Europe. One branch of these Aryans was located in present-day Iraq and is connected to ancient stories of gods who came from the sky.
A second branch entered India and intermingled with the existing population. They are mentioned in the Hindu Vedas, also in connection with gods who flew in flying machines called vimanas. it all begins to sound eerily similar to the Theosophist belief in extraterrestrial visitors. --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 162

In the summer of 1917 a young Estonian Jew named Alfred Rosenberg was a student in Moscow where he was given a copy of the Protocols by a stranger. Following the Russian Revolution the following year, the anti-Bolshevik Rosenberg fled to Germany where he used the book to gain entry to a secret society in Munich, a move which was to have far-reaching effects for the world.
In late 1918 Rosenberg presented the protocols to an ageing Munich newspaper publisher named Dietrich Eckart. A boozing bon vivant and one of Germany's better known poets at the time, Eckart was enthralled by this plan for world domination. He introduced Rosenberg to fellow members of the Thule Gesellscaft or Thule Society ... --Jim Marrs, Rule By Secrecy, 152
