INWARD JOURNEY - CHALLENGES OR BIRTH, LIFE AND DEATH
Weekly on 9 Sundays:
The 2020 dates will be announced soon!
Our Inward Journey V examines the most fundamental questions and values of human existence on earth.
The nine weekly online meetings form a way inward and outward, from perspective to insight.
Your hosts are pupils of the Golden Rosycross.
We use Zoom video conferencing software to create a dynamic heart-to-heart interaction with you. Our Explorations don't need any foreknowledge.
We don't record the live Explorations, and you're always in control of your microphone and camera.
We do ask you, however, to join in time if possible, as a courtesy to your fellow travellers.
Preregistration is not required.
Check dates and local starting times and join your weekly live meetings.
We're looking forward to welcoming you!

THE MICROCOSM SPEAKS
I am both past and present,
For all that is has once already been:
Through many incarnations have I lived
But never yet the Victory have seen.
Does conscience at times reproach you?
Is there a yearning like a burning knife?
Is not this then the essence of your sorrows
in all the swirling of the sea of life?
But realise that all your past had purpose –
the wheel of life revolved and shaped your lot.
No one can ever flee the ‘self ’…
until he understands the word of God:
So ‘love your neighbour as yourself ’ –
Observe the selfish songs you sing.
Yes, even more, release the Other in you,
let ‘him-within-you’ be the King.
The ‘I’ of past and present in the house I was entrusted:
the microcosm fed so long on dross
has now received a glorious new prospect
through the resurrection of the cross.
The cross, now planted in the holy centre,
its upright beam right in the heart of our earth reposes
its horizontal beams as outstretched arms.
The yoke divine – the ‘cross of roses’!
