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.

Please bring to the social hour something healthy to eat or drink. And desserts can be both organic and healthy! Just saying! [ED NOTE: Social Hour portion of convocation has been canceled]

Spring Series on Rosicrucian Healing

ancient-healingRosicrucian Healing is the topic we are pursuing for the next two months. “Rosicrucian healing is not used solely for treating illnesses. It can be used equally to prevent illness from occurring and to maintain good health.” …there are two major categories of diseases: those which induce a fever, and those which do not. In the first of these cases, we give a negative treatment. In the second case, we need to give a positive treatment.”

This spring will learn, re-learn, and practice our skills in the following four ways:

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

Heinrich_Suso_Gemälde_1601

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.
