The Rosicrucian Mysteries

Max Heindel

Book Overview: 

A primer for those interested in the basic philosophy, beliefs & secrets of the Rosicrucians, a secret society said to have been founded in late medieval Germany by Christian Rosenkreuz. Early seventeenth century occult philosophers such as Michael Maier, Robert Fludd and Thomas Vaughan interested themselves in the Rosicrucian world view. According to historian David Stevenson it was also influential to Freemasonry as it was emerging in Scotland. In later centuries, many esoteric societies have claimed to derive their doctrines, in whole or in part, from the original Rosicrucians.

The Light Ether transmits the motive power of the sun along the various nerves of living bodies and makes motion possible.

The Reflecting Ether receives an impression of all that is, lives and moves. It also [pg 070] records each change, in a similar manner as the film upon a moving picture machine.

An interesting view on death and reincarnation

Heindel uses what is essentially M-Theory as the proof of the possibility of clairvoyance roughly 100 years before M-Theory is even developed. He then goes into great detail the process of death and reincarnation, explaining every step of the process....more

Its starts off seeming profound, only in the end to decay into a schizophrenic like diatribe. Entertaining none the less; I couldn't put it down.

If you are interested in the Rosicrucians, this book will provide some insight into the study of ancient mystical, philosophical, and religious doctrines and concerned with the application of these doctrines to modern life.

I found the book to take some familiar Christian teachings, and expand on...more

Meh. If you want to get a solid dose of Rosicrucianism, read the Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception.
