Dear Mr. Koenig,
I may or may not have written to you some 4 years ago but cannot
remember. Either way, I love your web page. Very interesting points
which you bring up.
Before I go on please do not make any judgements of me personally when
I give you my degrees or associations in various organisiations. I
study all things in order to see and understand them. I am not
receiving degrees etc just to have lengthy titles, just for historical
understanding/research, or just to blow money away. I am just on a
wacky quest that has been taking me into different territories and
different experiences that I have truly enjoyed so far and that have
helped me in many ways.
THAT being said( bit too lengthy!) I am:
a member of regular Freemasonry in Pennsylvania (received all York and
Ordre Martiste et Synarchique
Gnostic Priest (EGA & OTC)
The Rosicrucian and Military Order of the Grail
student of Jomyo Tanaka (Shingon Buddhism)
student of Scott Felsen (former Thervedan Buddhist Monk)
I have a little tid bit to share with you but please DO NOT QUOTE ME. I
like the friendships I have made in the OTO so I wouldn't want to ruin
it. Sabazius X degree OTO Caliph. was seeking re-concecretion as a
Bishop under Bishop Robert Cokinis and Bishop John Cole (Both EGA). He
did seek reconsicration from Bishop Hoeller but was flatly refused.
Just some more historical stuff for you. The lineage thing must be big
to some in the Caliphate because by any account it would tie the person
to those of very high levels in old orders/organisations etc.
Well, keep up the great work. I would love to see some more of your
pages translated into English when ever you can get around to it.
Also do you have a copy of the original Sacraments as performs by the
Gnostic Church... would love to see them.

The info on Sabazius was given to me by Bishop John Cole who is under
Bishop Cokinis. I will call him and ask him for details, letters, etc.
He knows I am a big history buff and is the reason why he told me about
it in the first place.
Frankly, I don't know much about the political wranglings of the
Gnostic Church from its inception till now. I do know that many many
people were consecrated Bishops etc. Very few of these folks actually
worked the Sacraments or even took it seriously. I however take it very
seriously and do perform the Mass on a regular basis along with other
pastoral duties. In America there has been a sort of "alliance" or
"understanding" and recognition etc with Stephen Hoeller, Robert
Cokinis, and Ronald Capello. All others are either on the 'outs'( being
folks who took their Bishopric/priesthood and ran) or are Haitians who
only deal with other Haitians.
I have in posession many if not all the Masses etc performed in this
hemisphere. The Bishops here are trying to get more historical
documents from France as to who did what type or kind of
Masses/Sacraments etc. You seem to be the man who knows everyone and
about all things esoteric so I figured you would be of great assistance
to me in those matters.
About OTO. Seems like you had a bad time of it with the OTO. Could you
tell me your story? I'd really love to know but its not anywhere on
your web page that I could find. Many of the OTO people I have met are
decent people who are just trying to study in a frame work available to
them etc. We even hang out with some very high level folks in the
G.·.D.·. and everyone gets along. You seemed to have been around when
things were beginning to formulate in the early part of the Caliphate
and then some political BS happened. That's just my observation based
only on what's on your page and with no influence from OTO folks since
they nor I ever bring your name up. Do you belong to any esoteric
group? Sorry for all the questions. I would just like to get to know
Well gotta go for now. Take care.
