Harvey Spencer Lewis, FRC served as Imperator of the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC from 1915-1939.
In this essay, he uses the analogy of the wise planning and construction of a house to illustrate the principles on which he built the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, and which can be applied to our own endeavors.
This year marks the ninetieth year of Rosicrucian Park as the focus of Rosicrucian activity in North America and around the world. The word, focus, is a most apt description since, in the households of ancient Rome, the hearth (focus in Latin) was the center of the home. Sacred to the goddess Vesta, whose virtues had defined the sanctity, purity, and harmony of the ideal Roman family, the hearth provided warmth and light, and it was the place where nourishment was prepared. In so many ways, Rosicrucian Park has served the Rosicrucian Order and the San Jose community in these very capacities.
In this reading from a Rosicrucian Manuscript, we learn about Heraclitus and Democritus, two Pre-Socratic Greek Philosophers who are known respectively as the Weeping and Laughing Ancient Greek Philosophers.
Julie Scott, Grand Master of the English Grand Lodge for the Americas and Supreme Secretary of AMORC, reflects on the continuing value of former Imperator Ralph M. Lewis’s Creed of Peace, and the 2004 Contribution to Peace.
