JUNE 2021 ROSICRUCIAN MASS SERMON: SPIRITUAL LAW I

The Spiritual Law of Supply – SLCA

Spiritual Law is derived by inductive reasoning, and from a Gnostic metaphysic. It has nothing to do with the authoritarian command from a slave god. Rather, it’s authority starts with you, and how you compose your own life. Joseph Campbell said: “Follow your bliss.” This is the following of a ‘path with heart’ that don Juan Matus talks about in Castaneda’s chronicles.

  1. Sermon Notes
    Spiritual Laws I

    1. It is interesting to note that in referencing what Crowley called the ‘True Will,’ in MITP, he referenced one’s vocation in his example. And it seems Emerson adds a nice complement in futher articulating this idea.

    1A. But of course, American Transcentalism preceds Thelem; both yet holding a Gnostic perspective.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “Each man has his own vocation. The talent is the call. There is one direction in which all space is open to him. He has faculties silently inviting him thither to endless exertion.”

    2. I have observed this, not just in my own life, but in the lives of successful people in my own social & professional circles.

    2A. There seems certain lifelong proclivities that are self-nurturing; seeming almost compulsive in their impulse. It is as if one’s vocation is a calling.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “This talent and this call depend on his organization, or the mode in which the general soul incarnates itself in him. He inclines to do something which is easy to him, and good when it is done, but which no other man can do.”

    3. It seems significant that Emerson refers to a ‘mode’ of a ‘general soul’ in the manner in which such incarnates iself into a person.

    3A. The idea of a general soul would seem to be consistent with a projection from the Adam Kadmon; this taking on some modal function with the individual being that is becoming manifest.

    3B. We often point out in our public discussions that it is incumbent upon each of us to create ouselves; our own souls in a process referred to ‘Becoming.’

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “By doing his own work, he unfolds himself. It is the vice of our public speaking that it has not abandonment. Somewhere, not only every orator but every man should let out all the length of all the reins; should find or make a frank and hearty expression of what force and meaning is in him.”

    4. These proclivities that take the soul from its general expression in us, to a more specific expression produce the act of becoming. It is this process that develops the latent genius in each of us.

    4A. That we find this to be a calling connects us through the general soul to the over-soul that is the Universal Mind of the Divine.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “A man’s genius, the quality that differences him from every other, the susceptibility to one class of influences, the selection of what is fit for him, the rejection of what is unfit, determines for him the character of the universe.”

    4B. It is in this way that we each come to know our God.

    AL:I.42 “Let it be taht state of manyhood bound and loathing. So with thy all; thou hast no right to do thy will.”

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “Over all things that are agreeable to his nature and genius, the man has the highest right. Everywhere he may take what belongs to his spiritual estate, nor can he take any thing else, though all doors were open, nor can all the force of men hinder him from taking so much.”

    AL:I.43 “Do that, and no other shall say nay.”

    5. Gnosic occurs to the soul by our experience & observation, as much as by the choices we make in taking from the world, what presents itself to us.

    5A. this that we take, belongs to us; exclusively, so that no other may even prefer to absorb the same articles & notions.

    6. Our curch works to communicate Gnosis to our congregation; each to each other. This is by law of that spiritual law called philanthropy. We simply give and create an environment of giving.

    6A. In this way only, can we grow.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “The man may teach by doing, and not otherwise. If he can communicate himself, he can teach, but not by words. He teaches who gives, and he learns who receives. There is no teaching until the pupil is brought into the same state or principle in which you are; a transfusion takes place; he is you, and you are he; then is a teaching; and by no unfriendly chance or bad company can he ever quite lose the benefit.”

    6B. That we confer by Shakti-pat in this manner is an essential use of spiritual law. We give by first creating the environment of a community pre-disposed to a conditioned state of mind that is open to authentic spiritual experience.

    6B1. We provide this & give the whole of our knowledge; our Gnosis into this, that it ecomes its own contagion–a zeitgeist.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “In like manner the effect of every action is measured by the depth of the sentiment from which it proceeds. The great man knew not that he was great. It took a century or two for that fact to appear. What he did, he did because he must; it was the most natural thing in the world, and grew out of the circumstances of the moment.”

    7. We find then that spiritual law is natural law; that compulsion to do this and not that, and that ennervates to a point of seeming obsession manifest both personal genius & contact with the Divine; Gnosis–a grace & its own proof.

    7A. We find the whole of our lives involved in this; mind & body.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “These are the demonstrations in a few particulars of the genius of nature; they show the direction of the stream. But the stream is blood; every drop is alive. Truth has not single victories; all things are its organs,–not only dust and stones, but errors and lies.”

    7B. [] of this evolves our character & that personality that makes each of us an icong unto our own, individual antrue; this coming about by what we do.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “Human character evermore publishes itself. The most fugitive deed and word, the mere air of doing a thing, the intimated purpose, expresses character.”
