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.

  1. Sermon Notes
    Circles, Part 2
    Ralph Waldo Emerson Essay

    1. It is our minds that recobnize the infinite nature of the Divin; both in herexpression, as Not-I and in his many expressions, as I.

    1A. From these, the general laws of the Universe are derived, as the Universe within and without each of us can only be but a reflection of our minds; individually and collectively.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “Every ultimate fact is only the first of a new series. Every general law only a particular fact of some more general law presently to disclose itself. There is no outside, no inclosing wall, no circumference to us.”

    1B. Of these general laws, though we can derive more specific laws from them; whether of a material or a spiritual technology, we have still a cyce that spirals in an evolutioary motif.

    1B1. Hence, gneaization leads to new generalization in the same way that Newtonian physics gave way to Einstein’s physics and the Theory of Relativity.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “Generalization is always a new influx of the divinity into the mind. Hence the thrill that attends it.”

    1B2. Newton gave way to Einstein by Divine inspiration.

    2. Circles may describe the Divine in ourselves and in the world, but the cycles of the season and in our lives also represent a line moving forward and are then aptly described as spiral.

    2A. With each occurance of the Vernal Equinox, we are the, one year older and will not re-live the same experience.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “The natural world may be conceived of as a system of concentric circles, and we now and then detect in nature slight dislocations, which apprize us that this surface on which we now stand is not fixed, but sliding.”

    2A1. So that as the Earth turns on its axis, it moves around the Sun at the center of the solar system, with all the other planets.

    2A2. The Sun is also moving an pulling the entire solar system with it within the Milky Way Galaxy.

    2A3. The galaxy is also moving in its company of galaxies, so that abolutely nothing stands still.

    3. The Universe and everything in it is totally restless and constantly moving. Therefore, change is the only constant in the Universe and nothing is fixed.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “There are no fixtures to men, if we appeal to consciousness. Every man supposes himself not to be fully understood; and if there is any truth in him, if he rests at last on the divine soul, I see not how it can be otherwise. The last chamber, the last closet, he must feel, was never opened; there is always a residuum unknown, unanalyzable. That is, every man believes that he has a greater possibility.”

    AL:I.34 “But she said: the ordeals I write not: the rituals shall be half known and half concealed: the Law is for all.”

    AL:II.32 “Also reason is a lie; for there is a factor infinite & unknown; & all their words are skew-wise.”

    3A. Planets in a compnay of planets, suns or stars in a company of stars; despite each our own individuality, we have also a collective man; humans-society, community, our church.

    3A1. The master has said that where more than one are gathered ion my name, there am I.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “Conversation is a game of circles. In conversation we pluck up the termini which bound the common of silence Note on every side. The parties are not to be judged by the spirit they partake and even express under this Pentecost. To-morrow they will have receded from this high-water mark.”

    3B. Our movement and interrelation among ourselves gathers us together, seeking the Divine to appear in our midst.

    3B1. This is the inspiration and passion that binds us together; the Shekinah or Holy Spirit that appears iin tongues of fiew–a pentacost.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson
    “In common hours, society sits cold and statuesque. We all stand waiting, empty, — knowing, possibly, that we can be full, surrounded by mighty symbols which are not symbols to us, but prose and trivial toys. Then cometh the god, and converts the statues into fiery men, and by a flash of his eye burns up the veil which shrouded all things…”

    3B2. It is as if a synergy that moves around the rooms in which we gather ourselves, that our qabalah may step forward with new Gnosis and greater wisdom.
