In one of my last blogs, I focused on a Message from the Supreme Grand Lodge entitled, “Dare to Think!” published in the Rosicrucian Digest of Spring, 1992. This message focuses on the untrustworthy nature of our external senses. But what are we to replace it with, according to the writer?
In a remarkable piece of rhetoric, we are told that, though our eyes are valuable tools in exploring our environment, perhaps the most important, but they are somewhat deceptive. What’s the solution? We must train our hearing.
Hmmmmm…. Our eyes our deficient in objectivity, so we must train our… Continue reading
Do I believe that Pierre S. Freeman is the only one who has suffered these experiences? No.
People who come out of cults suffer a lot of symptoms related to post-hypnotic stress disorder. Here are some that I have experienced: hyperalertness, a growing negative view of the world, guilt, irritability and anger, nightmares (and daymares), flashbacks.
I also experienced some blackouts, very obvious disassociate behavior- like laughing or cursing during my period in the Sanctum, towards the end of involvement; confusion and disorientation; panic and an extreme sense of anxiety, without any obvious cause.
I would be quite interested in… Continue reading
In a Message from the Supreme Grand Lodge entitled, “Dare to Think!” in the Rosicrucian Digest of Spring, 1992, the spokesman ventures,
Dare to Think! This command will be heard when you are about to free yourself from the bondage of ignorance. It is the goal, which the teachings of AMORC are striving for; its students strive to become free individual who learn to use their own mind and think for themselves.
Many of my critics have harped on the “liberalism” and open-mindedness of AMORC, undoubtedly focusing on statements like this. Yet, on inspection, the article focuses on various elements… Continue reading
This is a slightly different version the list I published in Prisoner- I call this “Sixteen Steps to Mind Control Slavery.” It is quickly meant to explain why AMORC is a Mind Control Platform.
STEP 1 MAKE THEM HUNGRY, GAIN THEIR TRUST
Offer tremendous power and potential from the teachings, but stress how it will in no sense affect their freedom of mind.
STEP 2 CREATE HOLY TEXTS – A WRITTEN AUTHORITY
Give them something to read, memorize and believe in. Provide them with monographs and make them read them over and over.
STEP 3 DEVELOP AN EXALTED LEADERSHIP –… Continue reading
In The Prisoner of San Jose, I unveiled the methodology by which AMORC was able to create heightened states of hypnotic trance by a program that mainly relied on weekly lessons, delivered by mail to its members and weekly Lodge Convocation. In AMORC UNMASKED, I discussed more precisely how these hypnotic means were affected through a progressive platform of hypnotic suggestion. I published these sixteen steps in Prisoner.
Since many of my critics constantly comment, usually without any explanation, that AMORC is not a cult, I would like to review these 16 steps, somewhat modified and enhanced by my experience… Continue reading
On August 7th, 1990, Christian Bernard assumed the mantle of Imperator under a very fragile moment for AMORC. Not only had the Order been racked by an upheaval by the termination of Gary Stewart as Imperator as ordered by the Supreme Council, but funds for a variety of reasons were extremely low and this was partially, attributed, at the time, to the actions of Gary Stewart. In a Special 1991 edition of the Forum, a Q&A section addressed the question: How could something like this happen to AMORC? Isn’t the Imperator cosmically guided? Part of the answer was:
We are… Continue reading
