Egregor of Gruyere and Rougemont Castle

Below is an old post on the Lord of Gruyere. Gru is French for crane. I see the name Gregory. The Egregor is found in the Rose of the World prophecy.

I have been betrayed by a usurper. I will post less as I finish my novels so that I may reach a large audience.

Daniel Andreev (1906-1959) was a Russian visionary who, for much of his life, had experiences of spiritual realities, and in particular the reality he termed the Rose of the World (Roza Mira). As a mystic in Soviet Russia, he was faced with the great challenge of communicating his vision to others. He was refused entry to University due to the non-proletarian character of his father, Leonid Andreev, a famous writer. Daniel Andreev found work as a graphic artist. He studied history and literature and wrote at night. He formed a small circle of friends with whom he could share his work.

He was arrested in 1947 for reading his work to his circle of friends. Accused of anti-Soviet activities, he was sentenced to twenty five years in prison. His wife, Alla Andreeva, was sentenced to a labor camp. Andreev’s writings were destroyed.

While in prison, Andreev wrote the first drafts of the Rose of the World, as well as Russian Gods, a collection of poetry, and the Iron Mystery, a verse play. Andreev’s case was reviewed under Khrushchev, and his sentence was shortened to ten years. He was released in 1957, but having suffered a heart attack in 1954 his health was broken. It is remarkable, and indeed providential, that his works were not confiscated during his term in prison and that Alla Andreeva was able to get the manuscripts out of prison on his release.

This following is from Gaetan Delaforgem from a Gnosis
article, “TheTemplar Tradition: yesterday and today”:…”An egregore
is a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come
together for a common purpose. Whenever people gather together to do
something and egregore is formed, but unless an attempt is made to
maintain it deliberately it will dissipate rather quickly. However if
the people wish to maintain it and know the techniques of how to do
so, the egregore will continue to growin strength and can last for
centuries.

The Return of the Lord of the Cranes

“Ahead the Crane! Acts to go! Returns which will be able! ”

Where have we seen theses three mountain peaks? I believe my
genealogical quest has come full circle. I am alas in the home my
ancestors, and the ancestors of my daughter and grandson, Heather and
Tyler.

It is time to bring our brave troops home from the un-holy crusade of
George Bush.

The Gruériens were the first to depart for the Crusades. It is said
they were the first to enter Jerusalem where they led the fight for
the Holy Sepulchre. When the Gruérien Knights prepared to leave the
castle, the women of Gruyere shut them in and blocked the gate. In
the image above we see a man urgent to free Jerusalem from the
Muslims, furiously taking an axe to the gate. Note the red cross on
the trumpet.

It is time for the three religions born of the Torah to lay down
their arms, and send home their armed men. It is the time for Peace.

Gregorius, came to be associated by folk etymology with grex, gregis,
`flock’, `herd’, under the influence of the Christian image of the
good shepherd.

GUILLAUME Ier AND The DEPARTURE OF The GRUERIENS FOR The CRUSADE

During a forty years reign, Guillaume Ier pointed out himself by his
zeal to defend the faith. A fresco of the Room of the Knights, with
the Gruyere castle, shows it to us, surrounded of people of its
house, attending the installation of the first stone of the abbey of
Rougemont. Indeed, it made gift with the Benedictines of vast fields
extending beyond Tine. It is while following the example of these
valiant monks whom the population cleared the region to make the
beautiful country of them that we know. The name of Guillaume Ier is
attached to a beautiful page of the history of our country: the
departure of Gruériens for the Crusade. In XIe century, the Holy
Places were with the hands of the Turks. In all Christendom, and
especially in France, generous spirits formed the wish to begin again
in Inaccurate Jerusalem and the Holy Sepulchre.

Monks and laic traversed the countries, encouraging thevalid men to
take part in the holy war against the Moslems. It was the time of the
Crusades, because all the warriors decorated their chest of a cross.
Gruyeres did not remain deaf with this call. Indeed, here what Hisely
tells us: It is at that time of religious enthusiasm and
chevaleresque enthusiasm which it is advisable to report the charming
tradition that here: Hugues and Turin armed among the beautiful
shepherds hundred Gruériens to lead them to the conquest of the Holy
Sepulchre. The young shepherdesses wanted to close the doors of the
castle to prevent their departure. They had to be reopened of force
and the poor girls are reflected to cry when they intended the rider
to exclaim:

“Ahead the Crane! Acts to go! Returns which will be able! ”

Hardly knowing the geography, they asked naively “if this large sea
which should be crossed to go into Ground-Holy were as large as the
blue lake as one goes along when one goes in pilgrimage to Lausanne”

Which is the share of the history and that of the legend in this
business? It is difficult to say it. It is proven that Gruériens left
for there first Crusade (1096-1099). An Italian poet describing the
Cross ones says to us: “their sides, here under their own banner,
hundred beautiful Gruériens, the pride of the Gruyere”. Further, it
allots even to Gruérien the honor to have crossed the first the walls
of Jerusalem. Alas, among those which left well little re-examined
their fatherland!”

Threatened bird and emblème

The crane amulet Splendid bird threatened wader, the crane has very
little chance to cross the Swiss skies, the migratory corridors not
passing there. Out of Gruyere, it remains a bird of legend. Emblème
of a country, it is reproduced on the blazons of a dozen communes and
floated on the standard of the crusades…Spring spent, in the center
Pro Natura of Field-Pittet (Yverdon),the photographer animalier
taïwanais Shao Tung Wu presented, inimages, a turn of the world of
the cranes (Shao Tung Wu)

“the evening was beautiful. Purple sky, pink, a white crane was come
from there, trustful, to be posed on the shoulder of the Vandal: ”

Here, he says, a bird of good omen. By Wotan, I choose itto decorate
my blazon. My weapons will be from now on a money crane on field of
crimson and on my helmet, I want to place this bird at the flight
drawn up as a cimier.”

Thus Gruérius took the crane for emblème of the country of which it
pressed the ground.

“This anecdote, according to which Gruérius, the Germanic warrior,
posed the bases of the Gruyere Country around year 436, is only one
legend. But, like all the legends, it has its bottom of truth. “the
vigilant crane of passage gave this nickname to the first count. It
had a famous series, a long succession of descendants rich in power,
piety, clothes and gold: prosperity which dominated over our grounds
several centuries “, known as the Latin poem on the Gruyere
foundation.

The church of Rougemont was built around 1080 by the Cluny monks, who
had been commissioned by the Count of Gruyère to construct a
monastery. This priory was the first and only convent to be built
inthe “Alpe vaudoise”. Rougemont therefore belonged to the same
spiritual family as the Abbeys of Payerne and Romainmôtier. The
sanctuary is dedicated to St Nicholas, the fourth century martyr and
patron saint of children, who is celebrated on the 6th of December.”

“The Gruyere church, dedicated to St-Théodule, was devoted in 1254,
by the count Rodolphe III It became the parish church of thevillages
located between Trême and Marivue, on left bank of Sarine. Under the
furnace bridge dedicated to St-Michel the bodies of the counts de
Gruyères rested.”Saint Theodule was the first Bishop of Sion known as
Our Lady ofSion. He is depicted holding a bunch of grapes and may
have evolvedinto Saint Urban who is the protector of the Swiss Guild
ofRebleuten-Zunft whose meeting place waa owned by my
Rougemont/Rosamond ancestor. Are these Saints together the Saint that
come around on Christmas?

Were the Monks of Rougemont Knight Templars?

“Hugues and Turin armed among the beautiful shepherds hundred
Gruériens to lead them to the conquest of the Holy Sepulchre.”Is this
Hughues de Payen?

“Monks and laic traversed the countries, encouraging the valid mento
take part in the holy war against the Moslems. It was the time ofthe
Crusades, because all the warriors decorated their chest of across.
Gruyeres did not remain deaf with this call. Indeed, here what Hisely
tells us: It is at that time of religious enthusiasm and
chevaleresque enthusiasm which it is advisable to report the charming
tradition that here: Hugues and Turin armed among thebeautiful
shepherds hundred Gruériens to lead them to the conquestof the Holy
Sepulchre.”

The present day Castle of Rougemont was built upon the ruins of the
Priory of Rougemont founded by Count Guillaume upon his return from
the Crusade where his Knights of the Crane were the first to enter
Jerusalem.

“One speaks officially about the count Guillaume 1st. He lived around
the year 1080, and left for the Crusades. On its return, about 1104,
it founded the priory of Rougemont. The symbol of the crane is to be
seen on Rougemont and Gruyerecastle, and is found on the Cote of Arms
of Counts of Gruyere. Muchof their history was lost in a fire. Was
this fire deliberately set?

Discovered historical out of Gruyere

The first inhabitants of the Gruyere whose we can positively
establish the existence, lived towards IXXème century before Jesus-
Christ, to believe of them the old burials discovered in the valleyof
Charmey. The archaeologists discovered then, in the area of Pitcher
and Epagny, of the Gallic burials dating from VIème century before
ourera. As of the Roman time, the population moved towards the
sunnierslopes of the south of Gibloux.

Between 1913 and 1915, by digging the foundations of the orphanageof
Duvillard with Epagny, terrassiers reflects up to date about fifteen
tombs which revealed small archaeological treasures dating from the
time of Tène, that is to say approximately 325 to 250 years before
Jesus-Christ. All these parts are out of bronze.In 1985-1986, when
work of infrastructures was undertaken in this same sector, the
foundations of a Roman villa were updated. They were raised and
inventoried by the cantonal archaeological service which made a
publication of it.

It is necessary to also remember that our area was invaded, as
fromthe 5th century, by colonizers of all edges, such as Allémani,
the Gallo-Romans, Burgondes and other German. The Charlemagne emperor
succeeds in making reign a pretence of order during a few years,
order that his/her son Louis Débonnaire could not make respect, so
much it was weak of spirit. In 879,the vast empire of Charlemagne
broke up into incoherentparts, creating inter alia the kingdom of
Burgundy made up ofvarious counties, including our region.

The Gruyere county

Origin of the countsIt is advisable to distinguish the legend from
reality. The legend claims that the word “Gruyere” comes
from “Gruérius” ,captain of the 6th legion of the Vandals, which
chooses to beestablished in our area, in 436. One quotes even
Gruérius I and II,with which it king de Bourgogne would have pledged
the ground and the country of Gruyere, in 510.

It seems however, according to the Hisely historian who made very
meticulous research in the middle of the century spent, that the
term “Gruyere” comes from “Large-gruyer”, (in Romance language)
or “forester” which was the “supersilvator”, the officer judges water
and forests, charged with réprimander the offences. The Largeone
managed a whole sector which one named the gruery. It took possession
of the hill, in order to set up its residence there.

Counts

The authentic history of the counts de Gruyères goes back to the
eleventh century. Beyond, one loses oneself in the fabulous
uncertainties and accounts. One speaks officially about the count
Guillaume 1st. He lived around the year 1080, and left for the
Crusades. On its return, about 1104, it founded the priory of
Rougemont.

In 1555, thetowns of Freiburg and Bern divided the Gruyere county

Baillifs and PrefectsFrom 1555 to 1814, the area was managed by the
baillifs of Freiburg.From 1814 to 1848, the baillifs were replaced by
the prefects, as inthe remainder of the canton.In 1848, the
prefecture was removed and Gruyeres was attached to theprefecture of
Bubble. (Thus the last illusion of sovereignty ofGruériens died).
However, in the heart of much of them, sommeillestill this idea of
independence and the word “freedom” is stillquite expensive to
them.Today, the castle is property of the canton of Freiburg
(purchase in1938). Its management is entrusted to the Foundation of
the GruyereCastle, chaired by the Director of the state education and
thecultural Affairs.The Foundation “Pro Gruyeres”, chaired by the
Prefect of thedistrict, has the mission of safeguarding and of
maintaining theramparts and walls enclosing the city comtale, with
the financialsupport of the commune of Gruyeres.Some outstanding
events with GruvèresThe Gruyere church, dedicated to St-Théodule, was
devoted in 1254,by the count Rodolphe III It became the parish church
of thevillages located between Trême and Marivue, on left bank of
Sarine.Under the furnace bridge dedicated to St-Michel, the bodies of
thecounts de Gruyères rested. The church burned by twice. First of
allby the lightning, then in 1856, the feastday God, when an
unhappyshooting of mortar set ablaze all the roof covered with
tavillons.Today, seven bells resound in a play of very harmonious
chime,because five of them were run in a mixture of money and bronze.

“The Templar Tradition: yesterday and today”:…”An egregore is a
kind of group mind which is created when peopleconsciously come
together for a common purpose.”

What does the Gregory name mean?

Last Name: Gregory1. English: from a personal name that was popular
throughout Christendom in the Middle Ages. The Greek original,
Grēgorios,is aderivative of grēgorein `to be awake’, `to be
watchful’.However,the Latin form, Gregorius, came to be associated by
folk etymologywith grex, gregis, `flock’, `herd’, under the influence
of the Christian image of the good shepherd. The Greek name was borne
in the early Christian centuries by two fathers of the Orthodox
Church,St. Gregory Nazianzene (c. 325–390) and St. Gregory of Nyssa
(c. 331–395), and later by sixteen popes, starting with Gregory the
Great(c. 540–604). It was also the name of 3rd- and 4th-century
apostles of Armenia.

In North America the English form of the name hasabsorbed many
cognates from other European languages. (For forms,see Hanks and
Hodges 1988).

On the Magical Egregore by Phil Hine

The term egregore is derived from a Greek word meaning “to be aware
of” or “to watch over”. An egregore is commonly understood to
bemagical entity purposefully created by a group or order as
anencapsulation of the group’s collective aspirations and ideals.
Onesuch example is the entity GOTOS, created by the adepts of
theFraternitas Saturni. Stephen E. Flowers, in “Fire & Ice”
(LlewellynPublications, 1994) describes the function of GOTOS
as:”Through the experience of the GOTOS the Saturnian Brother or
Sisteris able to feel directly the qualities of personality that he
or sheis expected to develop as an initiate of the FS:
compassionlesslove, willpower, resolution, severity (with him- or
herself andothers). These are developed in order to create the
conditions forhigher spiritual development through mastery of oneself
and theenvironment. In other words, these are the characteristics of
the Saturnian magician.

http://www.philhine.org.uk/writings/ess_egregore.html

It should be understood that, in these terms, it is the qualities
embodied by an egregore that is important, rather than making contact
with it in order to seek ‘hidden wisdom’ or the legitimisation of
one’s own ‘spiritual’ authority. Further, it seems from the
exposition of the GOTOS as given by Stephen Flowers that the egregore
is distinctly created to act as such a focus and then subsequently
utilised by the members of the group or order whose ideals the
egregore reflects. Thus the egregore becomes a focus for what in
known in the Chaos school as “Ego Magic” – the work of integrating
and transforming the facets of the personality, in accord with a
particular set of aims.

In the case of the FS; to become embodiments of the qualities
ofthe “Saturnian Magician”.

Egregore Definition Compilation

Date: Fri, 19 Sep 1997 13:50:30 -0500 (CDT)From: Gabriel EmersonTo:
zee-listS

ubject: Egregores________________________________________Unable to
throw out a definition that satisfied me, I turned to the browser.
Trying to find the Latin root, the closest I got was “egregius”,
meaning distinguished or illustrious. Cute, but doesn’t sound
related.This following is from Gaetan Delaforgem from a Gnosis
article, “TheTemplar Tradition: yesterday and today”:…”An egregore
is a kind of group mind which is created when people consciously come
together for a common purpose. Whenever people gather together to do
something and egregore is formed, but unless an attempt is made to
maintain it deliberately it will dissipate rather quickly. However if
the people wish to maintain it and know the techniques of how to do
so, the egregore will continue to growin strength and can last for
centuries.

An egregore has the characteristic of having an effectiveness greater
than the mere sum of its individual members. It continuously
interacts with its members, influencing them and being influenced by
them. The interaction works positively by stimulating and assisting
its members but only as long as they behave and act in line with its
original aim. It will stimulate both individually and collectively
all those faculties in the group which will permit the realization of
the objectives of its original program.

If this process is continued a long time the egregore will take on a
kind of life ofi ts own, and can become so strong that even if all
its members should die, it would continue to exist on the inner
dimensions and can be contacted even centuries later by a group of
people prepared to live the lives of the original founders,
particularly if they are willing to provide the initial input of
energy to get it going again. If the egregore is concerned with
spiritual or esoteric activitiesits influence will be even greater.

People who discover the keys can tap in on a powerful egregore
representing, for example, a spiritualor esoteric tradition, will, if
they follow the line described above by activating and maintaining
such an egregore, obtain access to the abilities, knowledge, and
drive of all that has been accumulated in that egregore since its
beginnings. Agroup or order which manages to do this can, with a
clear conscience, claim to be an authentic order of the tradition
represented by that egregore. In my view this is the only yardstick
by which a genuine Templar order should bemeasured.”
