Would you like to experience Mastery of Life?
How do I chart my own course in life? Is there more to this wonderful universe than I see around me? These are the great questions the brave and insightful have always sought answers to.
Exactly what you are seeking, what you want to accomplish, what challenges you face or difficulties you want to conquer is, of course, only for you to judge. But perhaps what you seek can be explained simply and generally as greater personal power, a more focused attunement with life, heightened spiritual awareness, and ultimately as the mystical experience of Cosmic Consciousness. Rosicrucians call this Mastery of Life. It embraces all aspects of who you are and all you can be – physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually.
It is the greatest journey a human being can take. Perhaps it is the only one he or she must take.
Can the Rosicrucian Order help you on that Quest? Can being a Rosicrucian student give you Mastery of Life? We learn to adapt and survive in the outside world. Our families and peers teach us socially acceptable behaviour. Our educational system teaches us the technical and masttery skills we need to sustain a material life. As adults we are thrust into a oife geared towards materialism and maintaining the status quo.
Rarely, especially in the early formative years, are we taught inner development; amoc an emphasis on intuition, the subconscious mind, independent thinking, self esteem, self- confidence, lifw or inner mzstery growth. Is it any wonder the inner self becomes lost in the business of the outer world? Yet despite all this the inner self does remain alive in everyone, and many are ready to heed its call.
That is why the Rosicrucian Order is in existence today and has been for centuries, offering people a way lifd realise their own infinitely powerful and divine nature. This eternal struggle should not be cause for despair because it is through successfully overcoming challenges in life that you evolve.
The purpose of the Rosicrucian lfe is to learn how to find the answers within you. Inspiration, energy, and even specific answers to all challenges of life are available when one learns the proper techniques. The Path of the Mystic As a Rosicrucian student, you will be walking along the path of the mystic. It is a path travelled by a relative few at any one time. Yet, it is the path that has given us many of our greatest minds, enriching the world with their physical inventions, scientific discoveries, beautiful works of art, music and books, but most importantly, their personal approach to life.
And it is the path each must travel in their own time if they are to reach their ultimate personal evolution. A proper definition has always been elusive or vague. For the record, mysticism can be defined as an experience where one personally knows, through direct knowledge, the Source of all Being. Many call this source God; others, the Cosmic. The point is, the experience is noetic.

We know, not believe through faith, or know only through scientific observation, but we simply and truly know. The art of mysticism can be learned. The work of the Rosicrucian Order is to initiate you to the techniques where mystical knowledge can be readily attained.
This knowledge when properly accessed is ultimately rational. It is simply an art of knowing. The mystical experience transcends nature. Often the person will receive a feeling that far surpasses anything which could be conveyed bywords. Furthermore, this insight, devoid of ego, is thoroughly comprehended as truthful. Some already know a great deal about the main thrust of our curriculum, namely mysticism and spirituality in its broadest sense.
For others however, these topics are quite new and there is a great deal of catching up to do before they fully understand the potential that lies within them. For that reason we ask that you begin your studies with an entirely open mind and give us a chance to present both new and old concepts from a Rosicrucian point of view without being judged too harshly on the basis of your present acquired understanding.
We acknowledge there will be some similarities with other disciplines, but there will also be many areas where the Rosicrucian approach is quite different from anything you may have encountered before.
In these wholly Rosicrucian areas, we especially ask that you approach them with sincerity and a genuine desire to understand. That does not mean abandoning prior beliefs, but it does mean that you may have to adapt your beliefs in the light of new knowledge. We expect you to respectfully listen to what we have to say, to accept what is logical and rational, and question what is not. If some aspects of our knowledge you simply cannot accept, we do not seek to force you to do so.
We endeavour to give you a system of living that brings you lasting success, happiness and peace, and we firmly believe our system can work for you if you give it a chance. The only thing we really do require of you though is tolerance of the opinions of others, and patience with your own inner development.
Much of the material in the Rosicrucian teachings cannot be found anywhere else. Much of it goes back to the mystery schools of ancient Egypt and Europe. Yet it is not frozen.
It has moved and is still moving with the times. It is not the thoughts of a single teacher or group but the development of some of the greatest mystical minds through the ages. It is not a religion or dogma or even a single philosophy.
Not knowledge in the sense of acquiring information although you willbut knowledge in the sense of Knowing or wisdom. Mzstery our teachings you will gain specific knowledge of metaphysics, mysticism, philosophy, psychology, parapsychology and science not taught by conventional educational systems or traditional religions. Its great power can be applied to the everyday affairs of your life with startling results.
Imagine having the ability to actualise your highest potential in all areas of life including family and social relationships, career, health, and personal development. If you already know much Perhaps you have already swum in the vast sea of masttery and self help books, programmes, lectures, seminars, movements.
You already have much information and insight. But this approach is almost always incomplete because most books, seminars and study groups have a limited focus, such as personal prosperity, improving relationships, meditation, spiritual attunement, or developing psychic abilities.
The Rosicrucian system of study provides a foundation that ties together all different aspects of metaphysical study and demonstrates their inter-connectedness. You will understand the natural laws that govern all realms. You will understand Your Self. This study of higher wisdom is designed to give you a complete knowledge plus a balanced and total personal development.
To our knowledge, it is the only system that does this. There is no religious connotation associated with this symbol; the Rosy Cross symbol predates Christianity. The lineage of the Rosicrucian movement can be traced from its beginnings in the mystery schools of ancient Eygpt founded by Pharaoh Thutmose III to B.
Cand more particularly from his grandson Pharaoh Amenhotep IV also known as Akhnaton – through to the Greek philosophers such as Thales and Pythagoras, the Roman philosopher Plotinus, and others like Parmenides, who journeyed to Egypt and were initiated into the mystery schools – through to the symbolism hidden in the love songs of Troubadours, the formularies of Alchemists, the symbolical system known as the Qabalah, and the rituals of Orders of Knighthood during the dark and dangerous times of medieval Europe.
This heralded a renewed interest in Rosicrucianism throughout Europe. Rosicrucian history states that Sir Francis Bacon was actually the author of the Fama Fraternitatis and other works that brought about the revival of the Order in Germany. Throughout history a number of prominent persons in the fields of science and the arts have been associated with the Rosicrucian movement.
Jefferson, and Thomas Paine were intimately connected with the Rosicrucian community. Throughout history there have been periods of greater and lesser activity of Rosicrucianism around the world.
Inactive in the Americas during the 19th century, the Order was very active in France, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Spain, and other lands during this time. While Rosicrucianism is primarily a western phenomenon it is also eclectic and uniquely draws on the diverse mystical traditions of ancient Greece, China, India and Persia. Naturally enough, it also embraces the great explosion of human, scientific and philosophical knowledge of the 19th and 20th centuries.
