Rosicrucian Writings Online
The Imperator's Monthly Message[By H. Spencer Lewis]
[From The Mystic Triangle March 1928]
What do you consider as the principal reason for our associations and our membership in the Rosicrucian Order? I place myself among the members, naturally. And, I ask the question as one member might ask another.
Is it solely because of the studies? Surely that cannot be. We would simply be students of a great philosophy, without any obligations to do more than test the laws and occasionally apply them.
No, my Brothers and Sisters, we are members of a great brotherhood, a fraternity. We are truly Brothers and Sisters of one family with a divine parenthood and an earthly mutual interest that binds us closer and closer day by day.
We are members of a brotherhood of Love. We are a harmonious group of individuals so united that we share one another's interests, joys, sorrows and advancements.
It falls to my lot to be the centre of your thoughts at times, your hopes, your plans, your problems and your successes. Through these things I see you, I come to know you, and to love you. And, what a magnificent body of earnest, sincere, kind and loving beings you have become! Daily am I impressed with the warmth of your affection, the steadfastness of your impersonal ambition and desires, and the unselfishness of your endeavors for all mankind.
What a wonderful change would come into the world if all the races of man could unite in one body, one human family, and work together, plan together, for the mutual benefit of all, as do the members of the Rosicrucian Order throughout the world. There would be an end to wars, an end to selfish strife and gain, and end to enmity, enviousness and suspicion.
Perhaps the time has not yet come for such a universal brotherhood of all mankind; but the leaders are here on earth now, the path-finders to universal Peace are scattered throughout all lands, and the standard-bearers of a new regime are marching forward to point the way. And, the motive is Love,--universal, impersonal, ideal love. The love of all men for mankind should be a reflection of the great Love that God has for all his creatures. In that Love we have our existence, our consciousness and our salvation. In the love of man for man we have also the attainment of the Kingdom of God on earth.
