The real Illuminati constitute a very highly secretive group of the most advanced, pure and holy individuals—and the literal translation is that they are the "Illuminated Ones".
To become illuminated took them many lifetimes of study and devotion and guidance. It is not a "club" that one can simply apply to for membership. One must first become "illuminated" oneself and then one may be invited for membership.
One must spend countless years in preparation and intense study to even be considered for membership. If you are willing to devote your whole life to becoming illuminated then you may be accepted for direct guidance from a Master from a Secret Order so affiliated to the Great White Brotherhood.
Be aware however, that the preparation alone takes three years of dedicated and consistent study. To learn more visit either of the following websites:
