Introduction

The term Rosicrucian (symbol: the Rose Cross) describes a secret society of mystics, allegedly formed in late medieval Germany, holding a doctrine "built on esoteric truths of the ancient past", which, "concealed from the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe and the spiritual realm.

Between 1607 and 1616, two anonymous manifestos were published, first in Germany and later throughout Europe. These were Fama Fraternitatis RC (The Fame of the Brotherhood of RC) and Confessio Fraternitatis (The Confession of the Brotherhood of RC). The influence of these documents, presenting a "most laudable Order" of mystic-philosopher-doctors and promoting a "Universal Reformation of Mankind", gave rise to an enthusiasm called by its historian Dame Frances Yates the "Rosicrucian Enlightenment".

In later centuries many esoteric societies have claimed to derive their doctrines, in whole or in part, from the original Rosicrucians. Several modern societies, which date the beginning of the Order to earlier centuries, have been formed for the study of Rosicrucianism and allied subjects.

Well I'm retired and looking at 70...that'll be after 69 this winter but my health is not that great and I am housebound...have spent the past few years studying magic. My first Monograph I copied in my journal and am comparing notes to what I already know.

Part 3.

Another good source is Spirit Web.

The site was closed down by Spirit Web owner, René K. Müller, August 2003.

The archive site is on The Wayback Machine.

Spirit Web has been resurrected Powered By Google Sites.

http://www.spirit-web.org/

It looks like a mirror image of the original. Try both for comparison.

Part 2.

The monographs are written in a non offensive manner for conservative, religious America. If one is non religious, possesses an open mind they can save themselves years of reading by cross referencing the monograph information with other sources. In many cases the other sources are more comprehensive.

If this site has an upload zone, I will upload my copy of the Mandamus and Atrium summaries. The AMORC summary content is below the 10% content permitted under copyright law fair dealing reproduction.

I also recommend reading Wisdom of the Mystic Masters by J.J. Weed.

J.J. Weed was a high ranking AMORC Grand Lodge member.

The book may be out of print. Google you will find a PDF copy of the book. You will also find a collection of his writings. The essence of AMORC is all there.

Part 1.

People join organisations for various purposes. If people possess an interest in what AMORC have to offer, join. You will meet others possessing similar interests.

I joined AMORC when I was 21, I am now 64. It was a different era with with a different social and cultural psyche. No-one has a monopoly on knowledge. We now live in an internet age where the knowledge I was seeking is freely available from many sources.

We also live in an era where work pressures and employment uncertainty is creating personal and relationship stresses. It is fine for AMORC administrators to say proceed in a certain manner. The reality of life is they possess permanent employment. The rest of the population is in a different situation.

After working all day, attending to family needs, household chores, people only have limited leisure time. Use your time wisely and effectively.

Well...to tell you the truth, my only reason for joining is that my Mother's name was Rose....I'm very familiar with the ties with the Masons etc....for me it's just a place to be and explore the degrees further...don't know what I can glean from it...ties to Egyptology are interesting, when I was a kid I was very much into reading about it in my Mother's mysterious books...she was a somewhat mystical person who believed in esoterics and our neighborhood was Romany.

sounds like u have a great deal of experience with it

Comment by gomezaddams on July 10, 2016 at 11:07pm
I was a member of AMORC for 25 years and the Masons for 8 Years. I resigned from both organizations 16 years ago. The reason is very simple, there are no secrets, only subtle pointers to achieving your full potential.

Fundamentally; I am a researcher, very good at cross referencing information and reaching an informed opinion.

90% of the monograph content does not interest me. They contain the same fundamental information available in the public domain. The other 10% of the content is useful.

I remember Ralph Lewis saying, I am not interested in what the monographs say, I am interested in what you think.

I don’t have the AMORC monographs, I returned the monographs shredded when I resigned. I kept the transcribed summaries from the 1994 era Mandamus and Atrium monographs. If one can achieve what is written, in the summaries, they will be in the top 0.5% of the human population.

My advice to the seekers of knowledge is:

All the knowledge required to make you a master of your own destiny is in the Mandamus and Atrium monographs. Transcribe the summaries into a word processor, then sort those summaries into a common grouping. You will see a pattern not apparent when you read the monographs.

Cross reference the information with other sources. That will make you lateral think and reach various scenarios.

If you hear older members saying don’t tell members in the lower degrees what is in the higher degrees. I can tell you for certain they don’t understand the fundamentals of the Mandamus and Atrium monographs.

Fantastic. us newbie's can perhaps now at last find the keys. with the keys we should be able to approach our other studies with  the confidence to achieve real results in our spiritual and material lives.

To Know, To Will, To Dare and To Remain Silent.

Okay, I joined! It's under my real name not the one I use here though. It'll probably take me a while to find my way around so if you don't hear from me I'll be busy but can always email me! Blessings everyone!
