The Knights Templar – Elizabeth Beckett

Mystery surrounds the brotherhood of the Knights Templar. It is an order that we know existed for about 200 years and consisted of holy and fighting men from Europe. The Templars made Jerusalem their capital as they protected pilgrims bound for the Holy Land and fought alongside crusaders to maintain their territories and those of their patron, the Catholic Church. We also know that many of their number were exterminated by this self same church under the command of the King of France early in the 14th century. The Templars had grown too powerful, too rich, and too independent. The Knights Templar were officially dissolved in 1312 and their wealth and assets were mostly swallowed by the church. Although this is the known history of the brotherhood, conspiracies about their belief systems, hidden agendas, and true activities surrounded them throughout the two centuries of their recorded history, and surround them to this day.

More than 700 years later there remain more questions about this band of brothers than ever before. Who were they really and how did they independently rise to power so quickly before being recruited by the Catholic Church? Where did the sect come from and what became of them after many of their brothers were executed and the order dismantled? How are they connected to other orders and sects around the world that existed before their time and have flourished since? What is their connection to Christ and the energy of love? What did their symbols mean and why have so many of them, such as the Fleur-de-lys, lasted through time? What secrets were they protecting in the Holy Land and what was the meaning of their clandestine ceremonies and initiation rites? Ultimately, what was the true mission of the Knights Templar and why was it so secret?

My novel, Templar

In my latest and 6th book, Templar, I answer some of these questions, but not all. The pure heart of the Knights Templar was esoteric, and so many secrets must remain with them. What I do explain is the cosmic origins of the order and that the Templars were one manifestation of a never-ending process of heavenly assistance for the Earth. The purpose of which was to raise human consciousness and guide the planet toward the higher vibration of love and ultimate ascension to everlasting peace.

The Knights Templar were part of a higher universal order—one fragment in a long and convoluted story of the evolution of life, that continues to this day. Templar links the origins of the cosmos to the ethereal realms, and ascended entities such as Melchizedek and the Great White Brotherhood; to ancient civilizations on Earth, the Atlantis continent, and mythological periods when dragons roamed; to the life of Christ and his descendants; and to the Dragon Courts of Merovingia and the knights of the round table. Interwoven between these links is a metaphysical description of the quantum—the invisible and superphysical fabric that surrounds us and all of life.

The Knights Templar existed as one snapshot in time within a process that is continually epochal and never-ending. Similarly, Templar zooms out to describe the Templars’ role of service as an eyeblink within a transcendent and interconnected multiverse that is fueled by love and light. Our connection to the heavens is confirmed through the fluid and ever-present quantum field. The multi-layered quantum is the medium that enables both physical and superphysical (more than just physical, including metaphysical) information to be shared by a single multiverse through a common language or code. The space-time fabrics, or continua, that enable the unfolding of life are draped upon the multitude of toruses, or flower-like structures, upon which realities and universes expand and collapse—the cosmological garden.

The Templars’ true battle was reminiscent of the universal fight of dark forces against light. Their real purpose was to guide humanity and the Earth toward an ascended consciousness ever while thwarted by those who would control the power of love and extinguish the light of the world. This is a timeless story, one we all know well, but also one of which God, through the language of love, is always the victor.

Below is an extract of one chapter of Templar, a verse that encapsulates their piece of the cosmic story.

The Knights Templar

God’s love began as just a spark
that brought the light from out the dark
and then it moved to start new worlds
of universes, stars of gold

Deep in the continua of space and time
a multitude of life began
abundant realities, realms, and races
expanded out in different places

Within the void the forces started
from one power the darkness parted
and birthed the light and all its servants
so filled with love, but still not perfect

The cosmos was a complex kingdom
but just one love gave up its freedom
and changed its power into body
whose source was still sublime and Godly

Across the sky the Lords of Light
began their holy grail flight
the journey to the sacred source
to enlightenment they’d set a course

Melchizedek was one of these
one Lord within the cosmic frieze
he had a host right out of heaven
and on the Earth these were his brethren

They wore the cross upon their chest
and symbols like Orion’s crest
these signs were evidence that they
came from a pure celestial way

Within the dragon lore they strove
to access God’s gilt treasure trove
of ancient truths and mysteries
and powers from the dragon seas

They had one single quest, you see
this priestly caste from Arcady
to prepare the world for one who knows
a teacher like the red, red rose

The illuminator would be sent
when Lucipher was almost spent
just like the prophet had foretold
to show how darkness could be gold

The rose upon the cross of life
through hurt and turmoil, loss and strife
the soul upon the crucifix
was just one piece of God’s matrix

One link in a celestial chain
to deliver man from fear and pain
and powerlessness that should not be
because mankind is always free

Excalibur, the sacred X
the weapon of their Godly quest
vibration of the higher law
the code of love before the fall

The shield of faith, the Fleur-de-lys
upon their mantle fervently
and pillar of their paramour
the cloak of love God’s proud armor

They formed a circle, their swords held high
inwards and upwards to a lofty sky
the light shone down upon their ring
a pyramid of everything

The hierarchy from which they came
transcended fear and hate and blame
they were God’s masters of the light
sworn by oath to pray or fight

To be included in their line
was to commit one’s soul through all of time
to walk a more exalted road
and help to carry heaven’s load

This could not be the path for all
decreed by God and kharmic law
because the depths of their true power
lay hidden in God’s chosen flower

Not all could use their delegation
with such peace and quiet elation
to carry such a mystic gem
is a sure sign of the purest men

Their knowledge of the universes
of quanta, laws, and healing curses
hailed from a far exalted place
and shapeshifted through all time and space

The Templar code was pure and bright
and earned from work, not a birth rite
but every group that hides its way
is suspect by the human fray

So over time their secrets shifted
and far apart the brethren drifted
till all their symbols of the night
became encrypted in plain sight

In private sects and signs of light
their way of love was given flight
through art and masonry they wove
their ancient law and hidden code

Their initiations became more veiled
their brilliance now vastly paled
so they did not attract the heed
of those with misspent power and greed

Their chivalry now but a myth
gone from the world goodness and faith
their pledge upon the holy quest
came fast undone in God’s own mess

The ones who were not true or sure
went blindly after holy war
and launched a series of crusades
that meant no more than being paid

Because behind these holy troubles
was nothing but the church and nobles
determined that to dominate
was their own self-appointed fate

They said they followed Templar law
because of crosses that they wore
but really these weren’t knights of light
because true Templars did not fight

Not mundane battles anyway
because they came from far away
beyond the Earth, and stars, and sun
and knew of their own Lordly one

God’s love was all they ever knew
but in his name the armies slew
the innocents and other people
mostly for wealth and the pope’s own steeple

The path of love began to bend
toward an old and welcome friend
it moved away from those who fought
and settled in the royal courts

The courts of love were its new home
in hearts of men who would atone
for all their human imperfections
and in God’s light drew strong reflections

The path of freedom could not end
because God’s love could always send
more helpers from the milky way
who knew the rules and how to play

These brethren were the brotherhood
of Knights of Light so great and good
whose temple crosses held all power
at heaven’s gate—the dragon flower

Emblazoned clear upon the sky
the Star of David did not lie
but lit the world all warm and bright
firm proof that there were Lords of Light

The channel for the flow of love
came down from Draco high above
her transcendental sea of faith
became the vassal for God’s grace

The Templars were but one of these
who heralded the time of peace
and showed the world that lumination
was heaven’s goal for their own nation

In the name of the cross the brethren toiled
in the name of the rose the world unveiled
the message of the holy one
the battle ahead, already won.

If you are interested in an historical romp with the knights through the Holy Land and a detailed and accurate account of their rituals and lives, you will be disappointed. Templar by Elizabeth Beckett is an otherworldly encounter with larger-than-life esoteric truths and cosmological grand plans. Expect the unexpected.

    Such fascinating and intriguing connections for the Knights Templar. Isn’t it interesting that your article published on Friday the 13th – the day the Templars were said to be executed, and thus why Friday the 13th is called unlucky. We couldn’t have planned your post date better! Looking forward to reading your book, Elizabeth!

    “Interwoven between these links is a metaphysical description of the quantum—the invisible and superphysical fabric that surrounds us and all of life.” The Templars were way ahead of their time. No wonder they were “thwarted by those who would control the power of love and extinguish the light of the world. ” Your book sounds fascinating. Thanks for sharing with us at VFA.

    Having researched and written much about the Templars in my 2016 Channel of the Grail, I find your approach to that gnarled (historically and philosophically) subject intriguing, very broad, perhaps too much so for my taste, but then the Templars as an archetype as well as in their individual characters are epic enough for hundreds of heroic tales like Arthur and his Knights. Sounds like an excellent foray on your part! Congrats.
