fraternitatis

The present turbulence in the planetary cosmos announces the formation of a new life-field of completely different atmospheric interrelationships, accompanied by impending geological changes and countless wonderful developments in many realms of nature. Immeasurable joy will fill all who are able to see and comprehend. The leaden misery of many will come to an end. The masks will be torn away.

Perhaps now we shall be able to understand the words of the Confessio Fraternitatis Rosae Crucis: “One thing should be stated here by us, namely that God has ordained that the truth, the light, and the splendor that he caused to leave Paradise together with Adam, shall be restored to the world, which shortly thereafter will perish. Thus the suffering of humankind will be lightened and all falsity, darkness, and bondage will cease.”

You know perhaps the aphorisms from the Fama Fraternitatis that appeared on the tomb of C.R.C.  One of these aphorisms was: “There is no empty space”.  The classical Rosicrucians wished to indicate covertly that, besides the visible, partially known universe, other universes exist.  There are different cosmic regions which, although very near, are invisible and unknown to human understanding and which are also unknown to the dead and so inaccessible to them.  Consequently, they are considered as empty space for everyone in dialectics.

It is also known to us that the ancient gnostics quoted from tenets that made reference to universes which are unknown to ordinary man.  Their aim was the exploration of the path of salvation, whereby man would change to such an extent, in his nature and existence, that the unknown, the apparently empty space would open up for him.  The gnostics teach that the invisible universes are our true, divine Fatherland.  They are our origin and our destination.  Now we live in night and darkness; we have fallen from the nature of God and so the call to return resounds.  The so-called empty space takes on a very deep and profound sense to everyone who desires this return and attunes his striving to this call.

Valentinus, a gnostic philosopher of the beginning of our era, the author of the gnostic gospel Pistis Sophia, explained the unknown divine worlds to his pupils.  He called the empty, unknown spaces of God, the Pleroma.  He proved that an outpouring of power takes place from the Pleroma into our darkness to enable all those who truly seek the regions of God to find them.

The Fama Fraternitatis speaks about the Trigonum Igneum, the fiery triangle. On arriving in Europe, in Spain, after his wonderful journey, Christian Rosycross offered all his treasures, all the mighty wisdom he had gathered, to all those who were willing to listen to him. But the answer was a crude rebuff. With lunar acuteness, the political, scientific, artistic, and religious elite soon perceived that what Christian Rosycross offered them was diametrically opposed to their own primitive opinions and practices. Had they accepted the divine gifts freely offered them, their great names would have suffered, as the Fama tells us; it would have become clear that they did not know anything; then they would have had to start to learn anew; they would have had to recognize their mistakes committed over many years and would have seen their source of income dry up and their moneybags grow smaller.

In Fraternitatis Amore

“…anyway, here’s Wonderwall.”

With a giggle, Metatron pressed a button on his soundboard to play the song he’d announced, and then leaned back in his chair, slipping his headphones off. The host of the next show would be arriving any moment now.

His stomach growled lightly, and with a grin he stood up to begin packing up his belongings, visions of lunch dancing through his mind.

Thus our Building, even if thousands were to see it from nearby, will forever remain untouched, indestructible, invisible and totally hidden from the wicked world.  ‘Under the shadow of thy wings, O Jehova.’

Fama Fraternitatis

…as soon as the world has slept off the stupor of its cup filled with poisons and intoxicants, and merrily and joyfully, with open heart, bare head, and unshod feet, steps forth early in the morning to meet the rising sun. (Confessio Fraternitatis)
