Looking backward, I believe that it all starts in the beginning of the training. In terms of belief, all you really need is enough belief to start the exercises.
And what are the beginning exercises about?
They are about mind reading, psychometry and some kind of mind over matter- changing the color of a candle. In other words, they are about the development of personal power. In AMORC UNVEILED, I say:
Someone who is a Seeker is fundamentally trying to get in touch with the Divine Presence, a state of transpersonal Communion with the Source behind all things. There is… Continue reading
Since many of my readers, especially those in AMORC, have wondered how their exercises could possibly be part of a Mind Control program, I am going to draw from some of my experiences in writing my new book, AMORC Unmasked- and kind of blend that new knowledge with my actual experience of doing these exercises.
Some people have said I was poor, unhappy, uneducated and came to the United States unprepared- and that was why I made such a mess of my life. I want to point out that when I applied for membership in AMORC I was a top… Continue reading
If you have read my books and disagree, exactly why do you not think that AMORC is not a cult? Please address the exact issues I bring up.
For instance, does not AMORC rather strongly imply that it is the only legitimate, clearly active spiritual fraternity in the world? What proof do you actually have that AMORC has the history and authority it claims for itself?
What do you really know about FUDOSI- and its right to actually provide credentials for AMORC? Do you know anything about its history? Do you know why it was disbanded?
Have you studied the… Continue reading
In the March/April 1988 edition of the Rosicrucian Digest, there is a very interesting article called “Chinese Alchemy: A Search for Immortality,” which speaks about the wei tan- or external method for attaining immortality- and the nei tan- or internal search. Wei tan- involved external methods- like diet, breathing techniques and medicinal elixirs to prolong life. Nei tan involved complex meditative processes- of which the martial art, Tai Chi Tuan- is like a mirror of internal processes.
Immortality has always fascinated me and, in one respect, Eastern and Western alchemy- in regards of the external discipline- both have attempted to… Continue reading
In an article called “The Inner Self” for The Celestial Sanctum section of the Rosicrucian Digest (May/June 1988), Dennis Kwaitkowski, F.R.C. relates-
“Our Rosicrucian Manual defines the Inner Self as the spiritual consciousness within the physical body. It further goes on to relate that this consciousness constitutes man’s real being and is part of the soul or the divine element of each person’s existence. The physical, material part of man is related to the spiritual consciousness, for both are part of the same cosmic whole and both work in harmonious parallel. The Inner Self, however, is unlimited and is in… Continue reading
Now, what I am going to say is my opinion- but I think that meditation and hypnosis are profoundly different procedures, although they both open the door to the subconscious in different ways. As I mention in AMORC Unmasked, the word, “hypnosis” comes from the word “sleep” in ancient Greek. I believe that this is a clue to what hypnosis is most like in human consciousness. On the other hand, meditation is about increasing awareness.
If I were sitting down in my sanctum, meditating, I would be “cultivating awareness,” a term associated with various kinds of meditation. This awareness could… 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
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
