“The highest of all occult orders which exists only in the inner world may be called the “Order of Melchizedek,” although among certain nations it has other names. This Order is composed entirely of the graduates of the other Mystery Schools who have actually reached the point where they can give birth to their present selves out of their own natures, like the mysterious
phoenix bird which, breaking open at death, permits a new bird to ﬂy forth….
….The secret Order of Melchizedek can never appear in the physical world while humanity is constituted according to its present plan. It is the supreme Mystery School, and a few have reached the point where they have blended their divine and human natures so perfectly that they are symbolically two—headed. The heart and mind must be brought into perfect equilibrium before true thinking or true spirituality can be attained.”- Melchizedek & the Mystery of Fire by Manly P. Hall pg. 36
