„For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
A Rosicrucian international Meeting took place from August 2nd to August 5th 2001 in Fatima, Portugal The theme was: “The spiritual panacea for the XXI century”. The residence Domus Pacis has a beautiful, nice chapel and is located few steps away from the sanctuary of Fatima, both of them are surrounded with olive and eucalyptus trees. All these factors helped to deepen and harmonize the activities of about 70 participants from all over the world, who worked on various topics and found positive agreements that are to be realized. All of us learned from the good qualities and talents of the Portuguese people, who also made us enjoy their music. There was time for devotional services, for learning from each other and for personal contacs. There was predominantly felt a fine energy of love and friendship, which spread its rays and touched the hearts of everyone. The next Rosicrucian International Meeting will take place in Spai.
Excerpts from The Rosicrucian Cosmo Conception. pag 380, The Rosicrucian Christianity Lectures. Pag 224-225. The web of destiny pag. 17-18. by Max Heindel:
Under the regime of Jehovah unity is impossible. Therefore the Christ, who possesses as a lowest vehicle the unifying life spirit, must enter into the dense human body. He must appear as a man among men and dwell in this body, because only from whithin is it possible to conquer the Race-Religion, which influences man from without.
…But law makes for sin; it is separative, and besides, man must learn to do right apart from fear. Therefore Christ, the Highest initiate of the Sun Period, came to teach the religion of the son, which works upon the vital body, which was started in the Sun Period. He taught that love is superior to law. Perfect love casteth out fear and emancipates humanitiy from race, caste or nation to universal brotherhood, which will become a fact when christianity is lived.
But as a child that is born into the world
requires nourishment, so also the Christ that is born within is a babe and
requires to be nourished to the full stature of manhood….so also, as the Christ
grows will the two higher ethers grow in volume and form a luminous cloud
around the man or woman sufficiently discerning to set his or her face
heavenward; it will invest the pilgrim with light so brilliant that he “walks
in the light,” as a matter of actual fact. By the exercises given in the
When Christianity shall have fully spiritualized the vital body, a still higher step will be the Religion of the Father, who as the Highest Initiate of the Saturn Period will help man to spiritualize the dense body which was started in the Saturn Period. Then even brotherhood will be transcended; there will be neither me nor thee, for all will be consciously One in God, and man will have been emancipated by the help of Angels, Archangels and higher Powers.
An ancient story: From The Essene Book or the Teacher of Righteousness
And the Master took himself to the banks of the stream where the people were
gathered, those who did hunger after his words. And…(Jesus was asked) "Master,
tell us what are those things we should hold of high value, and what are those
things we should despise?"
And the Master answered, "All the ills which men suffer are caused by those
things without us; for what is within us can never make us suffer. A child dies,
a fortune is lost, house and fields burn, and all men are helpless, and they cry
out, "What shall I do now? What shall now befall me? Will this thing come to
pass?" All these are the words of those who grieve and rejoice over events which
do befall them, events which are not of their doing. But if we do mourn over
that which is not in our power, we are as the little child who weeps when the
sun leaves the sky. It was said of old, thou shalt not covet any thing that is
thy neighbor's; and now I say unto thee, thou shalt not desire any thing which
is not in thy power, for only that which is within thee doth belong to thee; and
that which is without thee doth belong to another. In this doth happiness lie;
to know what is thine, and what is not thine. If thou wouldst have eternal life,
hold fast to the eternity within thee, and grasp not at the shadows of the world
of men, which hold the seeds of death."
Is not all that happens without thee, outside of thy power? It is. And thy
knowledge of good and evil, is it not within thee? It is. Is it not, then, in
thy power, to treat of all which doth come to pass in the light of wisdom and
love, instead of sadness and despair? It is. Can any man hinder thee from doing
thus? No man can. Then shalt I not cry out, "What shall I do? What shall now
befall me? Will this thing come to pass?" For whatsoever may come to pass, thou
shalt judge it in the light of wisdom and love, and see all things with the eyes
of the Angels."

Aramaic text by Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Elisabeth B. Browning
Be great in act, as you have been in thought; let not the world see fear and sad distrust. Govern the motion of a kingly eye.
Only out of great wisdom – wisdom usually born of great pain – can the human being learn to love.
Manly P. Hall
Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted
because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
