JULY 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: INTELLECT PART 2

The Intellect is the seat of the Nous; Spirit or Absolute Freedom, as the philosophers would call it. For the modern Gnostic, it calls on us to learn how to think and straddle the free expression of our thoughts and ideas. From this, the beauty of abstraction and the divinity of the Self must emerge; the humanities, arts and sciences will then flow. It is all this that brings us to rapture and a sensibility of transcendence that is the key to our immortality.

JUNE 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: INTELLECT PART 1

We promote the idea at the Gnostic Church of L.V.X., that we are a congregation facilitating genius in each other. And in this sermon, we explain how genius emerges from inspiration brought into the world from anything we might do. It’s in what we produce in our lives, and how we produce that; tied in with the Will, which is all about what we do. We invent ourselves and how we relate to the world, and what power we can have when we work with the synergy of our congregation!

MAY 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: HEROISM

To ‘endure unto the end’–that is to attach oneself of the epic drama that is your own life. Despite what the world has for you; the local herd that sustains you, you suffer and hold onto your voice; your inner vision. How many fall off this horse? How many so easily sell their soul for comfort and pleasure? And they’ll be insistent that you join them!

APRIL 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: CIRCLES: PART 2

Everything that we experience of the world is an a-priori extension of the human mind, and all our minds joined with everything else in the Universe. And in our space, we are in a state of constant movement; cycles within cycles. Some say that these cycles are an evolutionary spiral, as it is natural for our minds that reorganize the infinite nature of the Divine. This harmony of spheres is a reflection of the infinite nature of the human mind, as well.

MARCH 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: CIRCLES: PART 1

The Pythagorean mystery school seems to be where Sacred Geometry got its start in Western Thought. And this fact would not have been lost to Ralph Waldo Emerson. Nor was it lost to St. Augustine or Aleister Crowley in his prophetic work, which we mention in this sermon. But it seems most significant is the Eastern metaphor of the mandala, which Jung connected to the human soul as a symbol of the self. Emerson captures this, as well; having mastered both Western and Eastern thought. And he brings us full circle back to the metaphysics of Pythagoras.

FEBRUARY 2022 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: ART: PART 2

Art for beauty’s sake alone is shallow next to Art for the sake of bringing out Genius in both the creator and the viewer or audience. Yes, beauty is required for its captivating importance, as that brings us out of ourselves, so that we can then put our own Genius on display. And it is that Genius that then yokes the world to Divine Providence. But also, we need art in each generation, as it is incumbent on us in our own generation, to make our own, unique contact with the Divine.

DECEMBER 2021 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: ART: PART 1

Symphony Of Love: Excerpts from Essay on Friendship by Ralph Waldo Emerson

It’s Art that brings the infinite into the finite, by which the Divine extends its holy hand to touch the soul of humanity. Through its lens, whether that be a camera lens for a film or a picture; the lens of our mind’s eye or even the eyes in our head, we are virulently brought to apprehend the ineffable. And through art, we are conveyed forward, onto a path with heart.

NOVEMBER 2021 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: SPIRITUAL LAWS II: PART 2

How do the 12 Spiritual Laws of the Universe affect you? - The Like Place

We fall into our careers in life, like a satellite falls into its orbit; a calling that we can hear from even our youngest age. That career does not require that one answer to the world, and what the world expects of you. But it does form a part of how one speaks to the world; speaking from one’s own unique genius. And there is no social status that one’s career speaks to, as that’s the place where little minds, who have not yet, found their own genius, dwell. It’s all about finding meaning in life; find that and one finds the greatest joy.

OCTOBER 2021 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: SPIRITUAL LAWS II: PART 1

The 12 Spiritual Laws Of The Universe And What They Mean

One could say about Spiritual Laws, that they are more spiritual dynamics; how the Universe runs ITself. All is mind; including the Universe, and any God you can be interested in understanding is but the dynamic of your own mind. So even to mock your god is to mock your mind, which then mocks my mind. Virtue is then the harvesting of divine revelation.
