Its great power can be applied to the everyday affairs of your life with startling results. Imagine having the ability to actualise your highest potential in all areas of life including family and social relationships, career, health, and personal development. If you already know much… Perhaps you have already swum in the vast sea of metaphysical and self help books, programmes, lectures, seminars, movements. You already have much information and insight. But this approach is almost always incomplete because most books, seminars and study groups have a limited focus, such as personal prosperity, improving relationships, meditation, spiritual attunement, or developing psychic abilities.

We learn to adapt and survive in the outside world. Our families and peers teach us socially acceptable behaviour. Our educational system teaches us the technical and social skills we need to sustain a material life. As adults we are thrust into a society geared towards materialism and maintaining the status quo.
Rarely, especially in the early formative years, are we taught inner development; with an emphasis on intuition, the subconscious mind, independent thinking, self esteem, self- confidence, psychic or inner spiritual growth. Is it any wonder the inner self becomes lost in the business of the outer world? Yet despite all this the inner self does remain alive in everyone, and many are ready to heed its call. That is why the Rosicrucian Order is in existence today and has been for centuries, offering people a way to realise their own infinitely powerful and divine nature.
And it is the path each must travel in their own time if they are to reach their ultimate personal evolution. A proper definition has always been elusive or vague. For the record, mysticism can be defined as an experience where one personally knows, through direct knowledge, the Source of all Being. Many call this source God; others, the Cosmic.
The point is, the experience is noetic. We know, not believe through faith, or know only through scientific observation, but we simply and truly know. The art of mysticism can be learned. The work of the Rosicrucian Order is to initiate the student to the techniques where mystical knowledge can be readily attained. This knowledge when properly accessed is ultimately rational. It is simply an art of knowing. The mystical experience transcends nature.
Often the person will receive a feeling that far surpasses anything which could be conveyed by words. This eternal struggle should not be cause for despair because it is through successfully overcoming challenges in life that you evolve.
The purpose of the Rosicrucian teachings is to learn how to find the answers within yourself. Inspiration, energy, and even specific answers to all challenges of life are available when one learns the proper techniques. The Path of the Mystic As a Rosicrucian student, you will be walking along the path of the mystic. It is a path travelled by a relative few at any one time. Yet, it is the path that has given us many of our greatest minds, enriching the world with their physical inventions, scientific discoveries, beautiful works of art, music and books, but most importantly, their personal approach to life.
Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis
Harvey Spencer Lewis , author and mystic who re-activated AMORC in the United States of America, wrote that "from the very start, and with the issuance of the first public manifesto, the correct name of the international Rosicrucian organization was used, namely, the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis. This is a slightly abbreviated form of the original Latin name, Antiquus Arcanus Ordo Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis, and the initials AMORC were immediately used, as well as the true and original symbol of the Rosicrucian Order — the golden cross with but one red rose in the center". The teachings are divided into "Degrees" which are further grouped into broad categories under titles such as Postulant, Neophyte, and Initiate sections. These degrees cover various fields related to physical, mental, psychic, and spiritual existence such as physics , metaphysics , biology , psychology , parapsychology , comparative religion , traditional healing techniques, health , intuition , extrasensory perception , material and spiritual alchemy , meditation , sacred architecture , symbolism, and that mystical state of consciousness relating to the experience of unity with the Divine. It is financed mainly through fees paid by its members. Income is used by the organization to pay expenses, develop new programs, expand services, and carry out educational work.
