I want to commend you sir for the noble work you have started here. May I ask sir, if you have thoroughly examined the Grail Message ( Vol I- III )? And, what is your experience of It?

Remain profoundly blessed sir. Peace.

I have. The Grail message is a very noble organisation devoted to religious mysticism. It has no contradictions to AMORC'S teachings.

Alright then, now that I am not getting answers to my questions, I guess it'd be reasonable for me to assume my suspicions are true.

In that case I'd just keep to the mainstream for knowledge and stay away from shady sources and groups.

Anyway, good luck with your pursuit.

I'm sorry I didn't answer earlier. I've been out of touch with the Internet. Please I suggest you ask your mind boggling questions.

Is soul projection or astral travel taught @ Amorc?

It is not a basic or primary teaching in AMORC. What AMORC teaches is psychic projection. It is quite different and less obscure than soul projection. You can get the complete AMORC syllabus by visiting this page : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosicrucian_monographs or http://rutilusdiluculo-cmills.blogspot.com/2014/06/amorc-master-monographs-index_19.html

That's quite funny but it is a BIG LIE! AMORC is a subscription based organisation which means members PAY to be members. In other to leave, just stop PAYING and that's all!!! AMORC is not a Nigerian organisation - most people don't even know this- it's a worldwide organisation headquartered in San Jose, California. I'm very sure if most of the superstitious lies about AMORC is true, it would have been disbanded in the US. Anyway, the simple answer to your question is that members can leave AMORC at any point in time if they so wish by simply stopping the payment of their dues or writing a letter to the administration. It's really that simple. No one haunts you, no badluck comes from anywhere and no bad blood is spilt. I know of ex amorc members who are thriving well. Most ex members usually leave because they couldn't meet up with the dues or that their intention of joining amorc was not the reality they met.i.e. Some people join amorc thinking they can get rich overnight or kill their enemies and when they realise that's not what AMORC is into, they leave and start spreading rumours. Others will get tired of reading monographs and leave. So amorc isn't for everyone. It's an intellectually inclined organisation. We even have a university known as the Rose Croix University International.

@fratermathy,
Can one choose to learn just the secular knowledge and not delve into the spiritual aspects of your teachings, I don't like spiritism.

Also, can one exit the group clean without any lingering effect or repercussions either from knowledge gained or from the group (AMORC).

I hope you provide answers to these questions and even further clarifications.

I will answer the first question because the second one has already been treated multiple times.
For the first, I don't know what you mean when you distinguish between secular and spiritual. However, AMORC has ALOT of teaching concerning virtually everything. You'd be surprised. Even the concept of African voodoo(not practice but scholarly study) is treated in AMORC'S teachings among many other topics. So to distinguish between secular and spiritual is a purely personal issue. Furthermore, AMORC doesn't impose it's teachings on you. It is always stated that you are free to agree and disagree with any teachings so you can and may choose what you believe or practice in AMORC. No one will even know talk less of bother. Everyone has his/her own study habits and may not necessarily be similar in any way.

To throw more light on the second question, it is perfectly possible to leave AMORC without anything simply by returning the monographs sent to you and stopping your dues.

BELOW IS AMORC CURRICULUM/SYLLABUS FOR THOSE WHO ARE CURIOUS AS TO OUR TEACHINGS.

The Rosicrucian Monographs or Personal Sanctum Study Lessons (as they are sometimes called by AMORC) were first written in the beginning of the 20th century (before the 1930s) by Harvey Spencer Lewis, founder of AMORC, and subsequently updated by his successors to stay current with advancements in science, language, and culture.


These teachings are part of the Rosicrucian Monographs.These are not the only subjects covered by the Rosicrucian system. The list contained here, which should be perceived as unofficial, is adapted from the Rosicrucian Home Study Lessons section of the Web version of the Mastery of Life published by the English Grand Lodge for the Americas also including information from my private library of Master Monographs.

A.M.O.R.C.'s Grade Structure
The AMORC grades, or as they called, Degrees, are arranged into four sections or groups:

Postulant section - That is the introductory section and includes the Mandamus explaining the system of study and basic concepts.
Neophyte section - That is the basic section and includes three degrees.
Temple section – That is the intermediate section and includes eight degrees. After the year 2000, there was a reformation of the degrees, and their titles changed as well as the name of this section.
Illuminati section – That is the advanced section and includes four degrees. After the year 2000, their titles changed. For instance, the Illuminati section was split in three sections:
The Illuminati proper section, including the 9th, 10th, and 11th degrees.
The Esoteric Hierarchy section, including the 12th degree as an introduction to a new entire new section called the Ordo Summum Bonum
Ordo Summun Bonun section - That section has a subsection entitled the Planes, which includes another set of nine degrees. The "Plane" degrees were created by HSL's son Ralph Maxwell Lewis (1904–1987), initiate name: Sar Validivar, during his period as AMORC Imperator (1939 to 1987). Those degrees are purely philosophical in nature and discuss the nature of the Cosmic and its Natural Laws.

Postulant (8 Mandamus) section
The word Mandamus, which appears on the cover of each monograph, designates the especial mandate that the student receive as Postulant to the Order and the monographs explain the system of study and basic concepts and terminology used in the degrees ahead.

Neophyte section
Like in ancient times, if a person wanted to study the great mysteries of the world, they would have to petition for admittance as a student and become a Neophyte. The Neophyte would be granted admittance to the Atrium, or reception chamber to the temple. In the Atrium the Neophyte would receive the preliminary instructions and beginning teachings, before they would be allowed entry into the temple. Following ancient times the Rosicrucian monographs are called Atrium lessons, and beginning Rosicrucian students are called Neophytes.

Introductory lessons
Presents basic Rosicrucian concepts that can be applied in practical ways. One of the first things the students will learn as a Neophyte is that they are a dual being. In addition to the student's five physical senses, the student also has a psychic sense. The exercises in these introductory lessons are designed to gradually awaken and develop the psychic faculty. The exercises allow the students to discover for themselves through direct experience how these principles work.

Topics include:

Mystical Sounds
Spiritual Alchemy
Time and Space
Human and Cosmic Consciousness

Composition and Structure of Matter
Power of Thought and Concentration
Visualization
Telepathy
Mental Projection
Law of the Triangle

Second Atrium
The student's understanding of the connection between mind and matter will now be expanded to include the connection between the mind and the physical body. The second Atrium explores how the students' thoughts influence their health, the role of proper breathing in psychic development as well as health and vitality, and Rosicrucian healing techniques. As the students develop their body's psychic centres, the student will gradually awaken psychic faculties, such as the ability to perceive the aura. the student will also experience the mystical effect of sounds.

Topics include:

Origin of Diseases
Influence of Thoughts on Health
Mystical Art of Breathing
Rosicrucian Healing Treatments
Perception of the Aura

These lessons also explode the nature of Soul and spiritual evolution, reincarnation and karma, and the cycles of the soul.

You can review the curriculum I posted earlier to know the scope of AMORC'S teachings. AMORC IS NOT A RELIGION. Members are drawn from ALL religions and it is perfectly compatible. There are some reasons why it's not a religion.
1. It has no standard mode(s) of worship as seen in religions
2. It has no deity or religious figure such as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, etc. However, it recognises all these religious figures as avatars and illumined soul personalities.
3. It is not compulsory for members to be in touch with any other member for any reason. In fact, there are more unknown amorc members who keep to themselves.
4. The teachings are not imposed so there's no room for dogma.

There are a hundred reasons why amorc is not a religion but I think I've proved my point. AMORC is only an organisation devoted to the study and mastery of the universe and its laws.

AMORC'S teachings are uncommon because you won't find any school or religion or organisation that will teach you everything about life and make you essentially a walking encyclopaedia.

If you are a a Christian you should know the Bible correlates with virtually everything. But like I've always said and will always say, AMORC is not a Christian sect or organisation so it has nothing whatsoever to do with Christian liturgy and holy books.
Personally I've made a lot of achievements. If I start saying everything I've gained from Rosicrucian teachings, we won't leave here today. The teachings have formed the foundation for my rising success in life, my intellectual vibrancy and much more too numerous to mention.
Telepathy's possibility is a subjective affair. But trust me, anything amorc gives you is tried and tested by millions of others. AMORC doesn't give untested experiments and if it is, you'd be told out rightly. So telepathy is possible and I'm saying it not because I've been taught but because I've had personal experiences.

There's a lot people don't get to know before joining, and when they want to quit, they discover it's near impossible. I have a friend whose life has almost been destroyed just cos his father decided to leave ur organization.

Affirmative! AMORC IS NOT A RELIGION. AMORC treats the worship of God as a personal thing. Although all AMORC members must necessarily believe in God, how God is worshipped remains a private affair. AMORC doesn't prescribe that to members that's why it's not a religion.

I'm a born Catholic and remain so. AMORC has not taken over my religion in any way. If anything, it has only created more harmonium.

I assert and will assert anytime anyday that your friend's father was not a member of AMORC at all. I've seen SEVERAL members leave amorc easily and carry on with their lives, no one even noticed not to talk of discuss their issue for anything. Maybe your friend's father involved himself in some other things and they caused a rebound effect on him. AMORC is committed to the greater good. All REAL ex members of amorc will tell you this. I've already covered some of the reasons why people leave amorc earlier on. So stop spreading this hearsay rumour that you haven't even confirmed. By the way, AMORC is a subscription based organisation and once you stop paying, you become inactive. Please get your facts right. This is why I like doing research before saying anything because you can never be sure until you hear from the horse's mouth. Show me an ex amorc member who was tormented and I will prove in his presence that he is a LIAR!
Another point is that some members of amorc belong to other 'funny' groups. AMORC cannot prescribe what groups members should join or not and so because of this, people are quick to say AMORC did this or that when the person falls into mishap.
For further proof, my own dad, a professor in my state university left amorc while he was a student because he couldn't afford the dues Later on when he started lecturing, he renewed his membership. In between the periods, never did he complain of any torment. Far from such, he missed reading the Monographs so much and wished he had money to reactivate earlier.

INTERESTED!... few questions for starters..

1. Can a Muslim practice these teachings
2. Just how closely related is the AMORC to the AMO(Martinist Order).
3. And how related is the AMORC to the OTO (Ordo Templis Orientis).

Thanks, as I anticipate your response.
. Not AMO. It is TMO- traditional martinist order.

You should have started that with "In my own opinion". Meanwhile this thread is not to proselytize or seek for members but to correct certain mimisconceptions and one of them is glaringly oozing from your fanatical, extremist and misguided comment. It's amazing how we are quick to call Muslims extremists especially those of us from the South when we cannot remove the log in our eyes to see how extremism has eaten up our brain to the point that the hippocampus is the only functional part of it.

You associate The Grail Message with religious mysticism. Please can you shed more light on that, and perhaps give some certain aspect of it that claim so.

Well, I am an adherent of The Grail Message. I am neither here to promote my spiritual inclination to people nor argue with those of other religious faith who have accepted what they do out their of own free volition. Man is fully responsible before the laws of nature for whatever he thinks and does. If, in his words or writings, he has led souls onto paths that are in error with the Ways of the Almighty, albeit out of 'love', he will not be released until the last of the misled souls is made to progrees on the right path.

As long as his writings continue to influence souls on earth when he himself has passes into the beyond, he will be held slow in his ascent even if it takes decades or more. Let us therefore exercise great care in what we propagate and examine thoroughly beforehand what we accept from others as absolute truth.

For those who are seriously seeking for Light and Truth, The Grail Message is intented as a torch that shows man clearly the path he must follow, the Ways of the Almighty and lawful network of this great Creation that are upheld by many servants of His Will if he wishes to attain to the Kingdom of Heaven - Paradise, the realm of pure spirits who are free from all burden.

Thank you.

Thank you for shedding more light on the Grail message as an adherent. When I say the Grail message is more of religious mysticism, I mean that the group itself is akin to a religious body(though it may not be so because it's my opinion). I believe that adherents take the Grail message as a holy book and follow the movement with religious dedication. That's why I made such statement. However, if my claims are contrary to the reality then I'm open to learning from the horse's mouth.

For example, a simple basic experiment given to new Rosicrucians is the candle light experiment which is a members only exercise but I want to share parts of it to answer your question. The aim of the exercise is to train the mind to concentrate effectively, assimilate easily and to learn meditation.

Firstly get a candle stick and light it up
Sit close to the lighted candle just few metres away with your back flat on a chair and your feet on the ground.
Now gaze at the candle without blinking your eyes for as long as possible.
Do this until you lose your thoughts and the flame become the only thing on your mind.
When you feel you are tired or the need to stop just stop slowly and keep doing it for as long as you want until desired concentration is achieved.

This is a very simple exercise to improve your concentration. It can help you especially as a student who can't concentrate to read. It will help you master meditation. It will help you in many ways you cannot even begin to fathom. I am not supposed to be posting this but I feel people tend to criticise what they don't know. So here's an AMORC exercise for you. I hope you are satisfied.
You have no right to print this here. However some good might be achieved from it. Salutem Punctis Trianguli.

I'm well aware of that frater. I actually pasted it to do some good and demystify some things about the order. It's a Postulant's experiment and will be of little consequence.

My brother I'm purely Anglican I hardly miss church because AMORC has opened my eyes to the immense spiritual benefits of the sacraments and sentences. If you understand mysticism to the level that I do, then you'll begin to appreciate the often ignored elements of our religions and realise that the souls search for God is universal and atavistic. AMORC has brought me closer to the church. But apart from the church or mosque, communication with the supreme being is purely personal. You can do it exactly as you are, here and now. Nobody has to know, its just you and your God or Allah or any man made names.

AMORC doesn't dictate member's lifestyle. You can do whatever you want as a person. It doesn't really matter so long as you are not imposing such on others or letting your habits cloud your life choices.

You may get membership forms by going to the affiliated body closest to you. Just contact me with your location so that I may refer you or you can visit http://amorcngonline.org
