HTTP://WWW.ROSICRUCIAN-ORDER.COM/INV.HTM WHAT DOES THE ROSE CROSS TEACH? The Rose Cross teaches a philosophy of life that can be lived here and now. The Order does not teach subjects that are merely speculative and that have no practical application but rather topics that each one of us can use to improve our own lives and the lives of others. All of us possess an immense flow of energy and power that we habitually ignore. However when we know how to use these abilities properly and apply them in a practical way, they help us to realize a fuller life filled with meaning and a sense of purpose. On the physical plane this learning prepares us to find our true vocation and mission in life. In the mental realm, we are more able to take advantage of the immense potential of our minds and find freedom from the anxiety, stress, erroneous concepts and mental disorders that, either subtly or in a violent manner, poison our lives and deprive us of inner peace. This philosophy of life teaches mainly about harmony with cosmic spiritual principles that enable a person to approach an understanding of the purpose of Creation and the power to feel the enduing presence of the Creator of all the things, the Supreme Architect of the Universe, the God of our heart that each person feels and understands according to their own capacity.
