Is there a secret message hidden in the tekst of the most popular children’s story ever written? Let the author take you on a journey through the alchemical symbolism in Harry Potter, where you will be shown an amazing discovery he has made. What does Hans Andréa claim to have discovered? That under all the magic and excitement there is a message that is at once modern and ve
Rosicrucians always were alchemists. As such they have always been known. In all times they have aplied alchemy. But you must know that there were two kinds of alchemy: there is a diaectic alchemy and a transfiguristic one. The dialectic alchemy is applied by occultists of all sorts. Therefore there are many people in the world who call themselves Rosicrucians but were nothing but occultists. That is why you must understand that all those who call them Rosicrucians are
In 1919 the English physicist Ernest Rutherford succeeded in transmuting atoms experimentally. He found that the bombardment of nitrogen atoms with alpha particles gave rise to oxygen and hydrogen atoms. In this way, modern atomic science succeeded in transmuting the elements. The age-old desire to turn base metals into gold appeared to be approaching fulfilment. The secret of the ancient alchemists was thought to have been tracked down at last, and people believed that the riddle of alchemy, t
It is true!
It is certain!
It is the whole truth!
That which is below is equal to that which is above, and that which is above is equal to that which is below, in order that the wonders of the One shall be accomplished.
As all things are accomplished out of the One, through one mediatorship, so they are all born out of t
It is with particular joy and gratitude that we may once again place the ancient message of the Egyptian Gnosis in the full light of day, now that world and mankind have reached a periodic turning-point in the great cosmic tides.
This message, which was and is the foundation of all liberating activity in the A
An orphaned boy, living with a wise man, woke and found himself alone in the middle of the night. He could not get to sleep again and his heart grew so restless that he rose and went down the stairs.
The moon shone in at every western window and his way was now in glimmer, now in gloom.
On the first landing he saw a door wide open which he had never seen open until now.
It was the door of the wizard's room.
Within, all was bright with moonlight, and the boy first peeped, then stepped in, and

MYSTERIES AND CHALLENGES OF BIRTH, LIFE AND DEATH – BECOMING A NEW HUMAN BEING
By André de Boer and René Stevelink
The spiritual art of living from inner knowledge, love and strength
Why was I born? What am I supposed to do here? After my death my body decays, but what happens then to my consciousness? Does that disappear too? Or does it increase instead? Will I go to heavenly spheres or will some part of me possibly return to earth in a different bo
There has been a cooperation with the Spiritual School of the golden Rosycross and the Bibliotheca Philosophica Hermetica or Ritman Library since 1986, which is now part of the Embassy of the free mind in Amsterdam. At the age of sixteen, the founder, Joost Ruben Ritman, became aware of the unique field of the Christian-Hermetic gnosis. In 1957, when his mother gave him a book by Jakob Boehme written in 1657, he realised for the first time that a certain category of ancient books was still mar

Mysteries of the Soul 1: Living from a sense of unity
You have the right to be here, in this world. More than that: you must be here! And you can become transparent for the light of truth that glows imperishably. You can be renewed internally and experience great happiness. You can cooperate joyfully with the realisation of the divine plan of creation; however, for this purpose, you must first undergo a thorough
In the human heart lies the seat of life, the nuclear power of the monad, the immortal rose. This rose is characterised by a strongly radiant, multicoloured light, which emanates from it. The seat of the rose coincides with the apex of the heart sanc- tuary. Its presence means that every nature-born human being is a potential rosicrucian, for the rose of the personality is always fixed to the cross.
This rose is the representative of the Planetary Logos in the nature-born human being. So the or
The young, self-conscious Holland that in seventeenth century Europe was in the begining op the 17th centrurty still partly within the sphere of influence of the church of Rome. It offered housing and protection to many great European philosophers, who were being persecuted elsewhere. We mention the profound Jan Amos Comenius, who corresponded with Johann Valentin Andreae and received from him the task of continuing to carry the torch of the light of the Christ hierarchy. We also think of Spino
Humanity en masse neglects the soul. Many problems we encounter are directly or indirectly the result of denying and ignoring this most essential aspect of ourself and our fellow human beings. There are many forces in the world that keep us away from caring for our soul.
Yet there is every reason for hope. During our recent era, the human personality has developed in such a way that the soul aspect has been awakened in many people and is indeed growing and becomi
What is imperfect will become perfect.
What is crooked will become straight.
What is empty will become full.
What is worn out will become new.
With little, ‘It' is gained.
With much, one deviates from ‘It'.
That is why the sage holds fast to the One,
and in this way makes himself into an example for the world.
Not seeking to shine, he is enlightened.
Not overrating himself, he is distinguished.
Not boasting, he has merit.
Not wanting to be first, he is superior.
Standing in non-conflict,
The nature of the soul and its calling must be thoroughly comprehended by the pupil and once again find recognition in his life, before he can meet the soul of the heavenly man. The threefold concept ‘spirit, soul, and body’ will be familiar tot every student from the communications contained in sacred books. He must realize however, that this designation of the threefold man applies only to a man as he ought to be!
In regard to the dialectic man, man in his present state, there is no longer an
Have you ever honestly examined your life and yourself, and realised that you are caught in a chain of cause and effect? And that your children are stuck in the same straitjacket? Lao Tzu drew attention to this predicament two and a half thousand years ago, and since then it has become many times worse. So if you really want to experience pupilship of a gnostic Spiritual School, if you really want to ascend the path of liberation, you must ‘abandon study’.
Abandon study, and your worries will cease.
What is the use of linguistic subtleties? Much better is knowledge of the distinction between good and evil.
Alas, the world has become a wilderness without end.
The multitude rejoice and are glad, like those who enjoy their food, like people who have climbed a high terrace in spring.
I alone am calm and have not yet moved. I am like a new-born babe who has not yet smiled. I am free and without limitation, as if there were no place to which I would
By 1930, Catharose de Petri had joined the enterprising, idealistic circle of friends that had been formed around the two brothers Z.W. Leene and J. Leene; at that time, she also saw the new, spiritual ideal and the building of the group before her. She explicitly expressed that she had her own task which, at age of 28, she had received from the Brotherhood, namely ‘from the bonafide Order of the Holy Rosycross’. Although she initially saw no benefit in the formation of a group, the two brother
