A Message from the Rosicrucian Grand Lodge During This Time of Anxiety Amid Corona Virus Concerns

“Refuse to give in to the thought that the world is dangerous and that God’s people are evil.”

Lonnie C. Edwards, MD of the Rosicrucian Grand Lodge in San Jose offers up a  meditation to unlock our Inner Resources and guide us from fear or anxiety we may be feeling towards calmness, serenity, and acceptance.

Edwards assures us that “humanity is evolving rapidly, despite what you see in the news.” He says that the key is “right thought and right perception,” and that we as Rosicrucian initiates strive to “see and hear as God sees and hears.” In the end, the problems rest with how you perceive reality and what you chose to do.

We hope this message will inspire you and still concerns that even during times of crisis all is well with the Cosmic. We have only to tap into it.

Volunteers wanted to help create a Vowel Sound Booklet

Opened magic book with magic lightWhat are the Rosicrucian Vowel Sounds? How do they relate to the Psychic Centers? How are they different from other practices like mantras?

We sing out three vowel sounds and sometimes vowel sound combinations during each Convocation, and the Guardian explains what parts of the body each one affects, and how each one should be performed.

Video Discussion: What is Meditation to the Mystic? 2 pm, March 15

Portrait-of-Pablo-Imani-on-location-in-the-Nile-at-Nubial-All-Rights-Reserved-The-Niles-New-Wave-768x430Join us for the next installment of our online video discussion group.  For this month’s online session we will look at a brief yet encouraging article from the Rosicrucian Forum about the art and practice of meditation. Meditation has ever been an indispensable part of the practice of the mystic and in particular the Rosicrucian student. Our monographs teach us the way of this technique, but can we ever really receive enough reminders to incorporate this art into our lives on a daily basis?

ENCORE EDITION: Video Discussion: Medieval Mysticism of the Monks, 2 pm, Feb 16

This month, we are doing an encore edition of last month’s discussion on medieval mysticism for those who could not attend in January.  See below for last month’s description of the event:

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.

Video Discussion: The Gnostic Mary, 2 pm, Dec. 15

maria.cropJoin us for the next installment of our new online video discussion group.  This group is live and for members only. If you wish to participate, email us your member number and we will invite you to the event.  You must have a good internet, a laptop with a camera, and a set of headphones with a mic.

In 1617, Michael Maier’s Symbola Aureae Mensae was published with the frontispiece illustration known as Maria Prophetissa. In this illustration, Maria Prophetissa, who may also be known as the Maria of the Gnostic tradition, draws our attention to the alchemical process which appears to be coming to fruition before our eyes. This illustration is robust with alchemical symbolism. For this December’s online discussion group, we will read from an article that examines the symbolism found here in greater detail and learn some of what Maria seeks to impart to us. – Frater Ken, Online Discussion Host
