The lost Brother and Other Tales – stories from the youth work of the School of the Golden Rosycross Lectorium Rosicrucianum


Twelve stories for children aged 5-9

Introduction by Daniël van Egmond in the new book ‘Mysteries and Challenges of Birth, Life and Death’

I do not believe in death: I die by the hour, each day And I have found a higher, better life this way 

Angelus Silesius,
Cherubinischer Wandermann I, 30a 

Life and death are mysteries. What does this mean? A mystery is not a problem or puzzle for which we have to find a solution. A mystery has an unfathomable depth and every time we engage with it, our wonder of it grows. But, as the classical philosophers taught us, wondering leads to wisdom, while solving a problem only means an increase in knowledge. So, if we want to connect with the Sophia, the Wisdom, if we long to be ‘loved by it’ (which is the literal meaning of the word philosophy), we must turn to Continue reading

Preface by Doride Zelle in the new book ‘Mysteries and Challenges of Birth, Life and Death’

For many decades we, as humanity, have experienced tremendous acceleration. What was experienced in the past during the course of several generations, we now experience in just one lifetime. Developments in the technical, medical, economic, social, cultural and political fields are moving at lightning speed. We are continually forced to make choices, both individually and also collectively, because if we do not choose for ourselves, someone else will choose for us. 

If we want to change our experience of outer circumstances, we will have to start working on our inner self because the world that we experience externally is a reflection of our inner self. The challenges that we face as people of the 21st century cannot be overcome with Continue reading

The spiritual art of living from inner knowledge, love and strength 

Why was I born? What am I supposed to do here? After my death my body decays, but what happens then to my consciousness? Does that disappear too? Or does it increase instead?

Our present-day world provides an overwhelming stream of impulses, opportunities, communication and knowledge. Social media and the internet have almost deleted the factor of ‘physical distance’. Our times are indeed impressive as regards technological development and all the possibilities it offers for human development.

Yet, many are those who have this gnawing feeling that, despite all of this, our society is lacking something essential. Something meaningful that meets our inner sense of purpose. Maybe you recognize this as well and has it urged you to engage in spiritual courses, workshops, discussion groups, on the internet and so on. And maybe you have also approached the School of the Golden Rosycross in this way. If so, then you may be interested in that kind of spirituality which has its roots in what we can term the Universal Teachings.

Preface of the book ‘Mysteries and Symbols of the Soul’ by Doride Zelle

As human beings, we do not only live in an era of change but most notably also in a change of era. We find ourselves at the beginning of a 2160-year period that is known as the age of Aquarius or the Aquarius era. Consolidated structures are eroding, as new cosmic forces drive mankind towards consciousness and renewal. It concerns a development that is entirely in keeping with the divine plan. This development, this changing from a material to an etheric predominance, finds its purpose in building regeneration out of degeneration. Continue reading
