Rosicrucian Reflections #158

“The mystic, in petitioning the Cosmic, turns the consciousness inward instead of directing the plea to a distant external entity or power. The Cosmic is in each of us, the mystic realizes. It is not just in the reaches of space. The mystic knows further, that our Soul will answer our petition. The Soul is of the Cosmic and it guides each of us to self-action.” Ralph M Lewis

Rosicrucian Reflections #157

“The mystic sees in every human being a real brother and sister, a close kin through every human and spiritual association. The interest of our human relatives and those of all humanity are our interest. All are united and constitute one grand experience for the evolution of the soul. The mystical life opens wide the portals of human understanding, sympathy, and human attunement, and through this comes a closer attunement with the spiritual consciousness that pervades all beings. This is the keynote of the power that comes into the very being of every mystic and enables us to wield an influence for good in the lives of others.” H. Spencer Lewis

Rosicrucian Reflections #156

“The goal of the Rosicrucian student is to live mysticism and mysticism, by definition, is the practice of strengthening the bond that unites us with the God of our Heart. It is through this Cosmic Attunement, being of necessity harmonic and harmonious, that we can understand our origin, our nature, and the infinite powers that are conferred upon those who master it. You are therefore encouraged to expend every possible effort to live daily the harmonic rapport that unites you with the Divine so that, through conscious revelation and illumination, you become forever instruments of Cosmic Harmony and Universal Peace.” Christian Bernard

Rosicrucian Reflections #151

“More than ever, it is time for us to move from religiosity to spirituality, which means replacing the sole belief in God with the knowledge of divine laws – that is, universal, natural, and spiritual laws. The well-being we seek, including on a material plane, is to be found in this knowledge and in the wisdom that ensues. An ancient Rosicrucian adage says, “It is from ignorance and ignorance alone that humans must free themselves.” Ignorance is at the origin of the worst things a person can do to oneself, to others, and to one’s environment. It is also the source of different superstitions that demean humanity and prevent it from finding complete fulfillment. Therefore give a spiritual direction to your life. Do not just be a living thing, be a living soul.” Rosicrucian Manuscript

Rosicrucian Reflections #147

“It is a metaphysical fact that for each minute of time we spend in thoughts of unfavorable impressions, unkind criticism, or hate toward any person, there will be hours of physical and mental suffering as a reaction. The first thing to do, then, in considering the relief of any mental or physical condition is to analyze your mental self over a period of time preceding the condition and discover what thoughts, attitudes, and conditions of mind you have held or expressed, and immediately eliminate this attitude by reversing your opinions, thoughts, and holding thoughts of love and kindness instead. In other words, the poison from the mind that has been eating at the very heart of every cell in your body must be eliminated before any treatment can be given to relieve the ultimate and outer manifestations. Any other process is merely treating the outer manifestations as though giving them a drug to nullify the senses without removing the actual cause.” H. Spencer Lewis

Essene Meditations and Blessings #146

Meditation

The colors change,

So slowly at first.

The mood is changing,

With subtle shifts of softness.

My mother’s garden shows to me

The procession of all life.

The life in me responds,

For I, too, am of this garden,

And subject to its call.

No fool am I

That fights this journey,

Missing the inner wealth to come.

The Blessing

As the wheel of the seasons

Turns me ever forward

My heart tells me that there is more.

My eyes observe the seed as it grows

Into the tree.

And from this tree

More seeds will come

To once again be trees.

The essence of my spirit

Lives within each seed,

And my tree will grow anew.

Blessed is my spirit,

For it will never die.

-Danaan Parry

“Humanity, when conscious of an eternal truth, has ever symbolized it so that the human consciousness could forever have realization of it. Nations, languages and customs have changed, and yet ancient symbols continue to illuminate us with their mystic light.” Ralph M. Lewis

Rosicrucian Reflections #143

“There are many names for the source of knowledge—the Absolute, the Cosmic, God, the Divine Spirit, the Transcendent —yet the concept is one; it is the Universal Manifestation, the Spiritual Essence, that pervades all things. And, it is this entity, this Universal Oneness, that the mystic seeks to know.” Rosicrucian Manuscript
