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
AMORC is definitely interested in Alchemy, literally initiating its more public outreach with an alchemical demonstration in 1916. Later on, it would offer some classes in alchemy.
But as to using the philosopher’s stone for the purpose of prolonging life- this does not appear to be a major interest, although there seems to be some interest in the creation of medicinal elixirs.
AS to ascension, AMORC clearly says-
From a Rosicrucian point of view, Jesus did not die at the time of his crucifixion. Therefore, he could not have been raised from the dead three days after this ordeal. As… Continue reading
In continuing to look over some of my old Rosicrucian Digests, I came across a “Thought of the Month” by former Imperator Gary Stewart. It was titled, “Laws of the Rosy Cross.” Commenting on the hopes for a New Age, promulgated so frequently towards the end of the last century, Stewart said in the May/June issue of 1987-
It is indeed good and important that humanity is entering into an era in which value is being placed upon the elevation of consciousness. But let us be cautious of the sensationalism that is being placed upon psychic phenomena and its resulting… 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
