In the heart sanctuary, in and around the place where the spirit spark atom rests, lies the source of the purifying and soul-realizing kundalini. In the philosophy of the Golden Rosycross we call this kundalini the power of salvation, the power of eternity, the power that enables one to rise up through and over the astral plane. In that rose power, we can accomplish all things. "The Living Word" by Catharose de Petri, one of the founders of our School.
The crucial thing is not what you know, but what you do!
You need to undertake a self-revolution so radical, so total, that it can be called all-encompassing. It is crucial that you begin and carry through this radical self-revolution. And to do it, you will need an intelligence born of wisdom. For this radical revolution, which is so necessary, will need to affect not only yourself but also everything and everyone for whom you are responsible. There is no uniform program that can be laid down for this radical self-revolution; no set formula that can be followed and applied by everyone. It is, first and foremost, an inner event. However, it expresses itself outwardly as a totally new style of living, based on life's true purpose.
What is the aim of that awakening? It concerns the new, the original life. Lao Tzu calls it: the path leads to not-being, and to being. Not-being is the foundation of all that exists; being is the Mother of all things. Not-being does not mean not existing, or non-being in the sense of a total absence of being; it is the absolute, original state, the original, immortal glory. It is a `new-being', in the original state of the Immovable Kingdom. Being as we know it is the being of death, suffering and tears. That kind of being cannot arise from Tao. That is why there is also an original being, arising from the same source of the absolute, as true not-being.
Lao Tzu gave this message to humankind several thousand years ago, and it sounds very familiar, because it is still being proclaimed today. From Tao, from the Gnosis, there arises a source, a fount, from which not-being and being arise. An eternal, irresistible power, in the midst of which the Immovable Kingdom stands like a rock. And

In the ancient world, the labyrinth was used to describe what in our modern times we refer to as a maze. A maze is not the same as a labyrinth.
A maze can be frustrating, frightening, and challenging because of many confusing paths and dead ends, purposely obscuring the route to the finish. A lot of us have this idea that life is like a maze, where we make mistakes and fix them, where we make wrong choices somewhere along the way, where we could get lost entirely. We all live in the maze we call life! Perhaps you are also looking for that one Path, a Path to guide your existence to its ultimate, true Goal.
In the maze of life, many people have reached a dead-end with regards to everything material life has to offer, and many are now looking for something completely different, completely liberating. Labyrinths symbolize the journey of life from birth to spiritual awakening. Lao Tzu spoke of “Tao”, the Buddha spoke of the “eightfold way”, the Bible speaks of the “narrow Path”, and Jesus
This video will approach meditation and spiritual enlightenment from the perspective of a Gnostic Spiritual School.
One of the pillars of the gnostic teaching is, that of all living creatures on earth only we as human beings are twofold namely mortal as to the personality but immortal as to the truly spiritual being dormant in each human being. This spiritual being, this Other-one-in-us, is imprisoned within our hearts waiting to be released. It speaks to us; it urges us to seek for truth.
It is the task of the mortal human being to learn to recognize this inner voice and to allow it to grow and mature.
Now that we find ourselves today in extraordinarily challenging and changing situations, many are those who are reflecting on issues such as health society harmony and non-conflict. We need to understand that our true task as human beings is not the development of the earthly self but the awakening and the unfolding of our Divine Self in the practice of daily life. In other words, we nee
Live Interview with the Rosicrucian: The mystery of life and death, The real knowledge of self, and the meaning of life.
Life is changing, and changing fast.
Your life is being impacted by massive waves of change.
We are all being pushed to a clear limit which requires from us a fundamentally different state of consciousness that must be conquered by each one of us through an inner self-revolution.
Only then we can become true agents of change in this world.
In this video we discuss this process of an inner self-revolution.
The word Gnosis comes from the Greek and means light of knowledge. The knowledge and belief the Gnostics attach to and what spiritual path they follow is generally little known. Gnostics are mostly associated with early Christianity in European intellectual history. However, there were and are Gnostics at all times. For gnosis - the knowledge of God - was and is a force that can communicate directly to every human being, regardless of religious systems and traditions. But what does it mean to experience Gnosis internally? In order to find that out, one must turn to the source from which gnosis springs.
In every human being, there is a longing for freedom. But what does it mean to be free? Even if you can do what you want, you can experience a lack of freedom because you experience the limits of yourself and those of the world. Then you can become aware that there must be more to life. There are fundamental impediments that prevent us from penetrating into a higher world with such absolute values as freedom, love and unity. This can lead to the feeling as ascribed in chapter 20 of the Tao Te Ching: ‘The multitude rejoice and are glad. (…) I am like a new-born babe who has not yet smiled.’
Freedom must be chosen in relation to the true purpose of life. How can we rise above the astral laws that keep the personality in captivity and thus prevent the manifestion of true freedom? How can we totally break loose from the wheel of birth and death, so as originally divine beings we break through to a reality beyond the prison of our senses? This question has only one answer, which has t

So think as if your every thought were to be etched in fire upon the sky for all and everything to see, for so, in truth, it is.
So speak as if the world entire were but a single ear intent on hearing what you say. And so, in truth, it is.
So do as if your every deed were to recoil upon your heads. And so, in truth, it does.
So wish as if you were the wish. And so, in truth, you are.
So live as if your god Himself had need of you His life to live. And so, in truth, He does.
