SPIRITUAL AWARENESS IN PRACTICE

Public Talk Series 8A and 8B

“Both, being and not-being, spring from the same source but differ in their goals and effects. Both are full of mystery, and this mystery is the gate unto life.” 

Tao Te Ching, chapter 1

Universal and timeless wisdom has been revealed to humanity throughout history; revealed in the teachings of the Vedas, the ancient Egyptian wisdom of Hermes Trismegistus, the Chinese wisdom of the Tao Te Ching, the Christian mysteries, the alchemy of the Rosicrucians of seventeenth-century Germany, the Cathars in thirteenth-century France, and many others.

These insights are offered not for historical interest but for application of the universal theme of living in a meaningful way in the here and now.

There is a very concrete and practical possibility for each one of us to choose an approach to life that can link us with the Spiritual essence of this Universal Wisdom, a Spiritual awareness in practice.

As a modern Spiritual School, the Golden Rosycross supports the efforts of its members and pupils to open up to this Wisdom and transform it into daily practice through a self-revolution, a complete and thorough transformation of the human being. 

In a series of three public talks we wish to explore all of this, reflecting on how each one of us can access this great process of inner transformation and liberation.

Sunday 11 October – Karma and Afterlife

Sunday 18 October – Esoteric Zodiac

Sunday 25 October – Chakras and Liberation

Three Weekly Explorations on Sundays

Spiritual Awareness In Practice

I. KARMA & AFTERLIFE

"It is in this life that you must decide about Life and death. If you don't do so now, another soul vivified in your microcosm will have to do so, but that other soul will certainly not be you" - Jan van Rijckenborgh

The laws of Karma and Rebirth compel each human being to follow a specific path of experiences in his or her life. The School of the Golden Rosycross defines Karma as lessons yet to be learned, not as debts to be repaid, as often stated. 

Everything in the world has a cause and an effect, and as we begin to see this interplay of forces in and around us, we can of course state that all of life is destiny and that there is nothing we can do about it.

The Universal Teachings present the reasons for this human condition as well as the way in which Karma, cause and effect, can be radically changed and dissolved. In doing so, our personality, freed from the bonds of the ego, can serve the true Inner Being, and participate joyfully in the process of transformation leading to the Spirit-Soul being. Karma is overcome and Eternity is experienced in the living present! 

How can we open ourselves to this divine reality? Can we free ourselves of the ties that bind many to an existence that alternates between suffering and surviving?

 

II. ESOTERIC ZODIAC

As we continue to explore the influences and powers that govern our existence, we recognise that these forces reside both in the cosmos and within ourselves, in a correlation that powerfully drives our life and constitutes a prison for the consciousness.

Yet, the Universal Teachings show us that in the centre of the human microcosm there lies a hidden monadic principle, the centre of a new system of forces. This hidden monadic principle is linked with a different plane of existence, a new zodiac, that needs to be awakened and from which a new consciousness, the 13th liberating principle, can manifest in ourselves and transform our lives and the world.

The aim of the Golden Rosycross is not to speculate on esoteric knowledge, or to collect and accumulate concepts and theories, but to consciously manifest and put into practice the living reality that it professes to humanity.

 

III. CHAKRAS AND LIBERATION

The process of inner transformation of the human being on the path of liberation passes through the opening of the chakras, the organs of our astral body, to a new type of astral substance, the Kundalini of the Heart.

This transformation awakens a new consciousness, a new awareness, and a new state of life. It is the transformation of all the forces and all the powers that circulate in the human being.

How do we activate this process in ourselves? How can we consciously collaborate in the Great Transformation?

What practices and methods can we employ towards the purpose of placing at the centre of our life that which has been called the Atman, the Rose, the Lotus flower, or the Spirit spark?

 

Our Public Talk Series 8 examines, in three weekly live explorations, the most fundamental questions and values ​​of human existence on earth.

We will explore various aspects of Spiritual Awareness in Practice.

The three weekly online explorations form a way inward and outward, from perspective to insight. 

All explorations can be followed separately and no prior knowledge is needed.

We offer the series in two time zones (A and B) and you're welcome to join the Journey of your choice (or both).

Your hosts are pupils of the Golden Rosycross.

We use Zoom video conferencing software to create a dynamic heart-to-heart interaction with you. Our explorations don't require any prior knowledge.

We don't record the live explorations, and you're always in control of your microphone and camera.

We do ask you, however, to join on time if possible, as a courtesy to your fellow travellers.

Preregistration is not required.

Check dates and local starting times and join your weekly live meetings.

We're looking forward to welcoming you!
