Omm-Sety

This month’s convocation in Portland will be packed with important exercises and information.  The convocation discourse will be a continuation of our reincarnation series. Next, we will review the second Neophyte Monograph. This is a review of some of the most foundational concepts in AMORC. So, this is a wonderful opportunity for new members and members who are returning to their studies after a long break.

Please read this post Why is Reincarnation Important to Study?

After a brief break, we will return for a short open class on the seven major Vowel Sounds.  This public class is excellent for friends who might be interested in AMORC. This was by far the most popular exercise at last Nov’s Alchemy Workshop.  Please bring a seeker you know. It should not disappoint.

REQUIRED READING: Why is Reincarnation Important to Study?

weighing.the.heart

Master Anjala took some time out to explain a very important mystical reality as the Rosicrucian Order AMORC has studied it, reincarnation. This is an important lesson that all our members should be acquainted it. Please read on:

This month we are continuing our ongoing discourse on Reincarnation. The next installment will be in Portland on Jan. 19.  This phenomena is extremely important to study, because our methods here are distinct, and get at the heart of what makes Rosicrucians students of spiritual science.

There are many theories of reincarnation, what is it and what laws, if any, govern a cosmic cycle of rebirth.

1.  A basic theory in Rosicrucian teachings is that the full panoply of human lives cannot be experienced in only one human life.  Your life as a city woman doesn’t include the insights of the life as a woman living in a jungle tribe.  Your life as a strong man doesn’t include the experiences of the life of a woman confined to a wheelchair for life, and so forth.

Video Discussion: Medieval Mysticism of the Monks, 2 pm, Jan 19

Heinrich_Suso_Gemälde_1601

For our upcoming online session, we will move back in time. Over the last few months, we have been looking at the works of the alchemists from the 1600s.  Now we will go back to the early part of the late Middle Ages, circa 1325. A Dominican monk by the name of Henry Suso, a follower of the German mystic Meister Eckhart, wrote a book called Das Buch Gennant Seuse which included a woodcut illustration known as the Horologium Sapientiae. We will examine an article from the Rosicrucian Forum, discuss the symbolism of this woodcut, and maybe learn a little bit more about the flavor of the mysticism of the time.

PRONAOS IS LOOKING FOR A NEW, CONVENIENT PORTLAND-AREA MEETING LOCATION, PLEASE PUT OUT YOUR FEELERS. 

IMG_4255

We are seeking a better meeting place, and here is what you can help us find:

An accessible place with minimal stairs, or a working elevator if there are stairs.

A place with a sacred “vibe”.  Meaning a place where a lot of meditation and prayer and self-improvement goes on.  Not a place that is used as a hotel or restaurant rental meeting room, for instance; we tried that in the decades past and it didn’t work out.

A place that allows us to use real candles.

A place that is well maintained and cleaned regularly.

How did you hear about the Rosicrucian Order?

One from the vault.

Master Anjala has dug up a classic AMORC ad from Popular Mechanics in 1945! It’s fascinating. Over the years we have met many many members who joined AMORC because of the famous ads they use to run in print magazines.  If you have never seen one, check it out the full ad below.

This ad got Master Anjala wondering how you, the members, came to discover the mystical teachings of AMORC.  Read on and let us know in the comments about your story.

Rosicrucian Cycles, Times of Secrecy and Times of Re-Emergences

Temple.Ruins

One question we hear a lot in Rosicrucian circles is, “Will AMORC be shutting down soon?” We heard some chatter about this at last month’s Spiritual Alchemy Workshop. The Grand Lodge continues to roll out new online tools for members, and the recent growth at the Enneadic Star Pronaos are good examples of how things are going well with the organization. Still, people often think that AMORC will be “going dark.”  There are good reasons why.  It comes from the belief that Rosicrucians transmit their teachings in cycles: going back and forth between active and inactive or underground eras.

Master Anjala decided to weigh in on the issue to give you the full story:

The Rosicrucian Order in the United States was established by H. Spencer Lewis in 1909. There is a MYSTICAL CYCLE of 108 years that some Fraters and Sorors have asked about for years. Isn’t the Order supposed to “Go Dark” in the USA for 108 years, starting in 2017? Why hasn’t that happened?
