I would like to open a discussion regarding the concept of an Adept and its required preparation in an esoteric school settings like the Rosicrucian orders, not only AMORC but other Rosicrucian schools or orders as well.
Summary of Topics
- Rosicrucian Origins
- "Optimized" Rosicrucian Transmissions
- Questions, Questions, Questions....
IntroductionOf course I know the advantages of a modern administrative structure required to deliver home study or online study lessons to a wide range of students in a world-wide basis. But I cannot see the reason why that system could not be integrated into the sacred way of transmission used by the original R+C groups.
- OKR+C, O.M. (Ordre Martiniste),
- OARC (Dantinne’s Rosicrucian Order) and
- AMORC , as the organization itself claims.
"If you were to come to France, and if it would not be an inconvenience for you to call at the studio of M…., professor of languages, residing at …..Boulevard Saint-Germain, he might be able to tell you something about the society about which you are inquiring. It would be a good idea to show him this letter. Certainly, a letter telling him of your arrival, with the date and name of your ship, would be courteous." (HSL, 1916, pp.12-27).
As I have mentioned in another post in this blogger, AMORC does not have a systematic preparation for the Adept, the only ones that are Traditionally entitled to pass initiation and use the Master title.
