Harvey Spencer Lewis , author and mystic who re-activated AMORC in the United States of America, wrote that "from the very start, and with the issuance of the first public manifesto, the correct name of the international Rosicrucian organization was used, namely, the Ancient and Mystical Order Rosae Crucis. This is a slightly abbreviated form of the original Latin name, Antiquus Arcanus Ordo Rosae Rubeae et Aureae Crucis, and the initials AMORC were immediately used, as well as the true and original symbol of the Rosicrucian Order — the golden cross with but one red rose in the center". The teachings are divided into "Degrees" which are further grouped into broad categories under titles such as Postulant, Neophyte, and Initiate sections. These degrees cover various fields related to physical, mental, psychic, and spiritual existence such as physics , metaphysics , biology , psychology , parapsychology , comparative religion , traditional healing techniques, health , intuition , extrasensory perception , material and spiritual alchemy , meditation , sacred architecture , symbolism, and that mystical state of consciousness relating to the experience of unity with the Divine. It is financed mainly through fees paid by its members.

One spring day a friend of mine was able to get permission from the organization to go out and visit it. From what he told me, the facility is quite extensive and located not far off Route The facility is also hidden away in a very rocky part of the state. Even the local houses have their yards hacked out in bedrock.
It is surprising how few people seem to know about it. That within each of us is buried a particle of the Divine element, a Divine Spark, of and from God. This celestial spark is our soul. Furthermore, God gave us the gift of free will and the opportunity to either diminish or grow this tiny spark by our mode of life; by our thoughts, desires and actions.
To develop this celestial soul spark, we must transmute change our lower nature and increase the feeling of love within our being. The end result of our efforts is to build this soul spark into a glorious, conscious Soul that forms a direct link between the individual and God.
This state of spiritual development is termed Soul Consciousness or Soul Illumination. Illumination of the Soul is symbolized by the fully bloomed rose in the center of the cross of transmutation, the Rosy Cross. Click on the link to go there.
I would love to say more about the FRC, but my friend tells me there was no one around to greet him when he made an appearance. The facility seems to be part of a larger complex with a natural healing clinic nearby. There is also a church on site, which you can see in the photographs, but it is only open on Sunday morning when the service is at 11 AM. There seemed to be a lot of things scheduled that day, but everyone was in doors, with the exception of some landscapers working on the property.
There was no signs for visitors, so he walked over the property and took photographs of the buildings. Rosicrucianism is symbolized by the Rosy Cross or Rose Cross. Between and , two anonymous manifestos were published, first in Germany and later throughout Europe. I will say that the pictures of this one are very impressive.
Most secret orders, outside the Freemasons, have a hard time renting a storefront, where this place has impressive buildings made out of local stone. I note that it dates back to the turn of the last century. About Rummah Rummah Kasai has written 27 post in this blog.

Who And What Are The Rosicrucians History of the Fraternity Rosae Crucis In so far as we are able to trace in the authentic pages of history, Egypt was the birthplace, not of the Rosicrucian Fraternity, but of the Ancient Mysteries and the Secret Doctrines, which gradually, slowly and almost imperceptibly, throughout the centuries of time, developed a system which became officially the Fraternity Rosae Crucis in the year It was Herodotus who claimed that the Egyptians were the first who distinctly taught the Immortality of the human Soul, not as a Conscious entity, but with the capability of becoming, or attainting to, such Consciousness. By the time of the Nazarene, the Essenian Community was the only Mystery School actively functioning. The Gnostics, or early Christian Initiates, kept the Mysteries alive after the death of the Nazarene. While it is true that these Secret Mystery Schools of Initiation existed in Egypt, India, Greece, and other countries and while it is equally certain that these schools had in view the identical ends of the Rosicrucian Fraternity, nevertheless, the Rosicrusians were unknown before Thus, the Rosicrucian Fraternity was not the result of a sudden impulse on the part of any one individual, whether Paracelsus or Andrea, but was the outgrowth of these Ancient Mysteries, of the work and teachings of the pre-Rosicrucian Orders such as the early Pythagoreans, Plantonists, Essenes, Cabalists, Gnostics, Magi, and the mediaeval Alchemists, Hermetists, Occultists and Paracelsians.
