As we celebrate our 19th year of existence through a ritual last night 13th December 2019,we come before the presence of the Diwata and a message has been given to us as the keeper of their Shrine here on Earth. We pray before the deities that work with us through time about the status of the Shrine which has no permanent membership and the Deities reminded us of who we should be and what we are keeping within the Shrine of Luntiang Aghama.
The Shrine is a place where people meet the Deity. It is not the people who made the Shrine to be Holy but the Deity call the people to go to the Shrine and be touched by them. People who become part of the Shrine is like those who can afford to buy exclusive membership to a 5 star hotel and stay. Those who can also afford become stock holders and part owner of that establishment. And those who have not only will come and later on go. What is inside the Shrine is like a priced Jewel that is securely kept in a showroom. It has a high value which you as a Shrine Keeper should keep carefully. As your oath of service states that: “You are the Vessel of Secret Knowledge of Mysteries, Miracles and Magick. And as a Vessel those mysteries are already normal to you as you keep it with you everyday. But for the uninitiated, the Magick will still be a mystery unless they keep it everyday with you.”
On our Facebook page we have posted an article that remind us of the history of our beginings. It describe the meaning of our first emblem that says:
The first Emblem of Luntiang Aghama was created by my sister Jho Comon. It is a triangle with a wing enclosed in a circle. Within the triangle is a tree above it the word Aghama written in Baybayin and above it is a Hexagram. Along the corners of the triangle are the letters “B” on the lower Left side which stands for Blessed; “C” on the lower right which stands for Circle and on top is the letter “A” for almighty.
The Triangle was pointed upward that means progress and growth like the tree which is planted and deeply rooted on the ground and grow. The Triangle have wimgs as the growth of the tree will fly up to the heaven above to reach the six pointed star which is the ultimate goal of Luntiang Aghama that is to become a radiating star that will serve as a light in the midst of darkness.
From the begining of our Shrine, Luntiang Aghama does not seek people to become member but instead we call people to remember them selves as part of Luntiang Aghama.
The people who stand within the Shrine are the one who are called and who have remembered themselves to be part and will remain to be with the Shrine.
As the Shrine goal to fly and level up its growth not in number but in wisdom, the shrine members will persevere and work hard in order for them the achieve the highest rank of becoming a star which is now manifested through Tala or Templong Anituhan ng Luntiang Aghama.
Indeed that the First emblem of Luntiang Aghama is a prophecy fulfilled. We are like a tree that been planted 19 years ago as time pass by we grow not in number but in wisdom and knowledge. We branch out our self by sharing our knowledge to the Public through our Hilot Academy of Binabaylan and have work hard to revive and preserve the Indigenous Belief System of our Ancestors. We have maintained a good standing relationship with our Mother Church which is the Correllian Nativist Tradition of Wicca and have performed our duties as a Dedicated Member of the Order of Peace Weaver. We even have reached out the LGBTIQ+ Community in the Philippines through the establishment of Kaduwa Movement Equality through Compassion and even have delivered our message of Peace through the Metri Manila LGBTIQ+ Pride Inc.
Let all people see your work and let them come out of their free will. If they are the right person, they will fit in and embrace the works that we have set for you to do. Do not be discourage by doing alone because you are never alone. When you are tired and feeling down, just stop for a while and look up. We are always here with you and in you. You are Us and We are You.
