If you live in the United States of America, then from the time
you become conscious of money, the Great Seal becomes a
part of your psyche whether you realize it or not. Moreover,
since U.S. dollars are, in effect, standard international
currency, this Great Seal infiltrates the minds of men the
world over both free and bond.
The centerpiece of this mandala is the all-seeing eye an important symbol within freemasonry and rosicrucian traditions for hundreds of years. So it is not surprising to find pride among occultists who understand the significance of this emblem: "Our beautiful seal is an expression of Freemasonry, an expression of occult ideas." (Wyckoff, H. S. The Great American Seal. The Mystic Light, the Rosicrucian Magazine, p.56)
The first attempts at including the all-seeing eye on the seal were not succesful. The first die of the Great Seal was cut from brass in 1782. In 1825, 1841, 1877, 1885, and 1902, new dies were cut, but each time the reverse went uncut and unused....the Illuminati's plan for the New World Order had not been advanced far enough, yet, to be announced.
The New World Order is an expression that has been used by illuminized Freemasonry since the days of Weishaupt to signify the coming world government. "It is necessary to establish a universal regime over the whole world", Weishaupt had said. (Writings of the Illuminati, 1780)
During the first part of the 20th century and up to the time the reverse of the seal was first used, a series of victories over the sovereignty of the United States had already been won. Illuminist agents committed to the one-world interests of the Rothschild-Warburg-Rockefeller cartel had accomplished some important stepping stones to this New World Order: Federal Reserve System (1913); League of Nations (1920); Royal Institute of International Affairs, and Council on Foreign Relations (1920-21); the Stock Market Crash of 1929. The consolidation of power was complete and the reverse side of the seal, which remained largely unknown to the American people for more than 150 years, could now be placed.

In 1934, Secretary of Agriculture, soon-to-be Vice-President (1940-44) and 32nd degree freemason Henry Wallace submitted a proposal to the president to mint a coin depicting the seal's obverse and reverse. President Roosevelt, also a 32nd degree freemason, liked the idea but opted to instead place it on the dollar bill. According to Henry Wallace, in a letter dated February 6, 1951, "the latin phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum impressed me as meaning the "New Deal" of the Ages."
"Roosevelt as he looked at the colored reproduction of the Seal was first struck with the representation of the 'All-Seeing Eye,' a Masonic representation of Great Architect the Universe. Next he was impressed with the idea that the foundation for the new order of the ages had been laid in 1776 (May 1st, 1776, founding of the Illuminati) but would be completed only under the eye of the Great Architect. Roosevelt like myself was a 32nd degree Mason. He suggested that the Seal be put on the dollar bill rather that a coin."
Besides being a high ranking freemason and having the distinction of introducing socialism into the American political system, Roosevelt was allegedly a member of a secret society called the Ancient Arabic Order of Nobles of the Mystics Shrine (Shriners), attaining the grade of a Knight of Pythias. The Order of Nobles and Mystics claimed to be an offshoot of the Illuminati. The list of notables that the Order claimed as their own includes many who were also members of the Rosy Cross; Mirabeau, Frederick the Great, Goethe, Spinoza, Kant, Sir Francis Bacon and Girabaldi.
Freemasons, Walter Flemming and William Florence founded an American branch in New York, 1870. Membership in the order was open only to Freemasons who had reached the 32nd degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite or those who've attained the last degree of the York Rite, the thirteenth degree (Knight Templar).
The Order of Nobles and Mystics have origins which date back to the seventh century apparently founded by a descendent of Mohammed. Author Michael Howard describes the Order's symbols.
The symbol of the Order is a crescent moon, made from the claws of a Bengal tiger, engraved with a pyramid, an urn and a pentagram. The crescent is suspended from a scimitar and in the Order is a representation of the Universal Mother worshipped in ancient times as Isis. The horns of the crescent point downwards because it represents the setting moon of the old faith at the rising of the Sun of the new religion of the brotherhood of humanity.(The Occult Conspiracy, p.93)
According to Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, Roosevelt's Shriner's have a ritual similar to a satanic ritual called "The Ceremony of the Stifling Air", or better known as "L'air Epais." LaVey says that this rite was originally performed "when entering the sixth degree of the Order of the Knights Templar." Remember that if the masonic candidate chooses to follow the York Rite, after he completes the 13th degree called the Knight Templar, he can apply to become a Shriner.
LaVey describes the Templars' ritual thus:
The original Templars' rite of the Fifth
degree symbolically guided the candidate through the Devil's Pass
in the mountains separating the East from the West (the
Yezidi domain). At the fork of the trail the candidate would
make an important decision: either to retain his present
identity, or strike out on the Left-Hand Path to Shambhala,
where he might dwell in Satan's household, having rejected
the foibles and hipocricies of the everyday world.
A striking parallel to this rite is enacted within the
mosques of the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the
Mystic Shrine, an order reserved for thirty-second
degree Masons. The Nobles have gracefully removed
themselves from any implication of heresy by referring to the
place beyond the Devil's Pass as the domain where they might
"worship at the shrine of Islam."
Once the celebrant has taken this degree,
he embarks upon the Left Hand Path and chooses Hell in place
(The Satanic RitualsCompanion to the Satanic Bible, p. 21)

Pretty powerful stuff for sure, and not what you would expect of the "merry old men" wearing "fez-hats" and tending to burn victims! One part of LaVey's interpretation I find interesting is the choice the candidate makes in following the "Left-Hand Path of Shambhala". In esoteric doctrine the principle city of the underground world is Shambhala.
In this subterranean kingdom presides an all-powerful and All-Seeing ruler The King of the World. Some have called him Sanat Kumara, others, King Satan. (This may not be as far fetched as it seems. The Bible clearly states that Satan is the "prince" and "lord" of this world John 12: 31 & 14: 30, Eph. 6: 12, Luke 4: 6-7, and 2 Cor. 4: 4 and in fact has dominion over this fallen world) This King of the World, according to Eastern tradition, has a rule and influence which stretches to the surface world by means of trusted emissaries who carry out specific tasks and duties including a secret 8 million who carry out his tasks unbeknownst to us all. As we shall see, one such "emissary" had a considerable influence with Roosevelt's Secretary of Agriculture.

Wallace's Occult Connections
Many of Henry Wallace's ideas originated with his guru, the Russian mystic and artist Nicholas Roerich. He was an adventurer/occultist in the tradition of his peers Madame Blavatsky, and Aleister Crowley. Roerich spent many years travelling through Nepal and Tibet studying with the lamas in the Buddhist monasteries of those countries. Roerich was searching for the lost city of Shambhala. In esoteric circles Shambhala is the home of the Ascended Masters, Secret Chiefs, or the Great White Brotherhood the hidden hand behind the formation and guidance of Freemasons, the Sufis, the Knights Templars, the Rosicrucians, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Theosophical Society both Wallace and Roerich were members of the Theosophical Society, this is how Wallace met his Master.
Roerich seems to have been an emmisary of sorts for the Great White Brotherhood even bringing a mysterious stone to guide the League of Nations on behalf of the Masters (according to legend, the 'Chintamani Stone' was believed to be a part of a magical meteorite from a solar system [probably Sirius] in the Orion constellation. This Chintamani Stone is sent wherever a spiritual mission vital to humanity is set up, and is returned when that mission is completed).
A mysterious stone was indeed mentioned by Wallace in one of his typical "Dear Guru" letters to Roerich: "And I have thought of the admonition `Await the Stone.' We await the Stone and we welcome you again to this glorius land of destiny." Not surprisingly, occultists regard Roerich as the guiding hand behind the placement of America's Great Seal and the All-Seeing Eye, and matter-of-factly state that it was at Roerich's insistence that Wallace approach Roosevelt about finally printing the All-Seeing Eye on the dollar bill.
Henry Wallace was well versed in occult knowledge himself. In a letter to Roerich he stated, "the search whether it be for the lost word of Masonry, or the Holy Chalice, or the potentialities of the age to come is the one supremely worthwhile objective. All else is karmic duty. But surely everyone is a potential Galahad? So may we strive for the Chalice and the flame above it." The chalice he refers to, according to Michael Howard, is the Holy Grail, regarded by the Rosicrucians as a feminine symbol for perfection, and 'the age to come' is the dawning of the Aquarian Age. This I agree with, and further, "the age to come" is synonymous with Aleister Crowley's "New Age of Horus" a Roerich occult contemporary. It seems that Novus Ordo Seclorum and Annuit Coeptis (He has blessed our beginning) has even deeper occult meanings than were led to believe.
Well, yes! These three "wise men" by placing the reverse of the Great Seal on the dollar bill succeeded in announcing to the world that America is on "the path", and is the world's best hope for the spiritual (occult) evolution of the planet. Considering how deep into the occult both Roosevelt and Wallace were already and Wallace's connections to Theosophy they had to of known that the most esteemed Theosophist of her time, Alice Bailey, had already declared that the Aquarian Age had begun in 1932. The whole symbology of the reverse is meant to be a mandala announcing this "New Age of Horus." They could not help but see the significance of this. And giving that their fellow illuminists in the Federal Reserve had now taken control of America's currency, it was a shew-in.
As for Roerich, he was only doing the Hierarchy's bidding for he was also a channeler of the Ascended Master El Morya a major avatar in the pantheon of Theosophy. Roerich, after his death, apparently succeded in joining the Heirarchy, and has now become the occult equivalent of a catholic saint himself an "Ascended Master." His messages are now channeled by Elizabeth Clare Prophet and one such message was "received", ironically enough, on October 28, 1990 at The Roosevelt Hotel.
