On the spiritual path of the Rosycross, the candidate passes through many doors. Above the first one is inscribed: Know thyself! Whoever opens his heart to the light of the spirit, begins a dynamic path that leads from self-knowledge to a complete renewal of life.
In the Lectorium Rosicrucianum (LRC) are those who feel a yearning in themselves for spiritual renewal, for a knowledge and experience of the universal mysteries – and for a practical inner path that gives their lives what it has long-sought. Pupils of the LRC are people from all races, professions and social levels – men an women who seek for the Light of spirit.
The LRC is a gnostic spiritual school. On the path of initiation, Gnosis – understood as the knowledge of God – communicates itself directly as Light and power. The LRC is a spiritual school because its aim is not personality culture, and not only the development of the soul, but the „chymical wedding“ of the new-born soul with the divine spirit.
The goal is to connect the renewed human soul with the true spirit of God, which is hidden in man as a seed – as a promise. Pupils of the Lectorium Rosicrucianum focus their lives on this goal of connecting the mind to the germ of the spirit within their own inner being. This is associated with an inner longing for enlightenment and experience of its power. In practice, it is important to learn to hear the voice of the soul and spirit within and to follow it step-by-step, in daily life.
