FEBRUARY 2021 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: COMPENSATION PART 1

Ralph Waldo Emerson; an American Trancendentalist and one of the most influential Americans to have ever lived. And we would not be wrong to say that his view on life and the human soul is entirely Gnositic. His essay on Compensation connects what one does with the core of one’s nature. One can’t be other than what one does., which is also a core ideal of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X. This takes one to a different idea on what karma is. In what we do, we affect ourselves; simultaneously with the world around us. The idea of karma, as a universal mechanism of reward and punishment is a false. Nature has no concern for human ideals or enforcing them.

JANUARY 2021 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: EXPERIENCE PART 2

In this second part of our comments on Emerson’s essay on Experience, Emerson discusses temperament, and how that turns into form. Form is the shape of one’s character on interaction with the world, which in his assertion, he insists originates from within; but also, that the light must burn within and burn outwardly in quietude, taking a modest stance in terms of one’s Gnosis.

DECEMBER 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: EXPERIENCE PART 1

Ralph Waldo Emerson; an American Trancendentalist and one of the most influential Americans to have ever lived. And we would not be wrong to say that his view on life and the human soul is entirely Gnositic. His essay on Experience focuses on Genius; a core ideal of the Gnostic Church of L.V.X. We are always promoting our community as one that fosters Genius in each other; holding that Genius to be divinity at the heart of the human soul.

NOVEMBER 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: SELF-RELIANCE

Ralph Waldo Emerson; an American Trancendentalist and one of the most influential Americans to have ever lived. His essay on Self-Reliance feeds into the work of Carl Jung and his development of ideas on individuation and the creation of personality. And most importantly, of concern to the Gnostic Church of L.V.X., the nature of human genius.

OCTOBER 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: THE SOUL

The Qabalah teaches a metaphysical construct of the human soul that is built into an ontology of consciousness. Through this we show how the Divine involutes into the body, as spirit, and how the body builds consciousness and a soul from this. That soul literally becomes the substance of the Self; having attained to Individuation.

SEPTEMBER 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: GNOSIS & GNOSTICISM

Gnosis is a state of mind, as Gnosticism is about the praxis of obtaining Gnosis. Gnosticism then, becomes doctrinal, which seems the antithesis to Gnosis, as it has the potential of getting in the way of individual experience. There is a tact that becomes necessary in our congregation that must seek to respect and admire the individual genius inherent in each of us. And this must be planted at the root of our doctrine.

AUGUST 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: SERVICE

servantry

The servant to others is first, the master of him or herself; only then to uplift the surrounding world.  He or she is not the slave that is held by and subsequently, brings down the surrounding world.  When one brings nobility to another, by way of inspiration, example or aught else, one serves the other in a most libertine manner that brings both of them to grow.

JULY 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: VICE, VIRTUE & SELF

de20679c-2807-4852-9967-6329c4f06771

The most fundamental question we face, from the earliest moments of our lives is how to live.  It is from this that we create the personality and come to identify ourselves to both, ourselves, and to the world around us.  Building an inner life, along with the outer life we need to create in order to get along in the world, is an essential issue that yet, few people really confront.  This only comes to those who have an inner dialogue that is more than just the stream of thoughts pouring through our minds; every moment of every day.  And it has to be built wholly of the self in its own regard, before it is then worked into the outer and creative expression that makes the whole personality.

Sacred Space and its mindset produces and emanates from a sense of wonder and awe.  Whether this belong to the external landscape of the world around us, or the internal landscape of the mind, it is a key to life’s meaningfulness and its pure joy.  Through this inner sensibility, the Divine is reached in a direct manner and one stands face to face with God.

MAY 2020 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: THE ARCHETYPE OF THE SELF

Power-of-Archetypes

The Self or the Ego is the object of so much misunderstanding that it almost seems impossible to get to any clarity on what it is or who “I” am.  And indeed, most people go through their entire lives without ever discovering who “I” am; adding to the difficulty overlaying the subject.  But through the many archetypes there are for people in our society and the mythologies that so many types generate, we can intuitively come to an understanding of who “I” am, through them.
