Alexandra B. Porter, Ph. D.
Good Morning Everyone! If everyone is comfortable, I would like to begin this conference with a brief prayer.
Mother-Father God, God of the Universe, and God of our hearts. Our father who art in heaven, we are gather here today to discuss the topic of Death and Dying. During this activity, we ask for the safety of your presence. We also ask, in the name of Jesus Christ, that you provide each and every one of us with the knowledge, the understanding, and the clarity that each of us is searching. And I as the speaker, may I suspend my imagination and my judgment of the race consciousness and may only that which is for the highest good of everyone present be revealed to each of us today. I thank you God for all your blessings and the opportunity to participate in this loving service. With thanks and full faith - So Be It.
The title of this conference is Death and Dying. This topic will be discussed in three parts: In the first part you will learn about Physical Death. Part 2 will cover Spiritual Birth, and the different spheres of the after life. The third part delves into How to live “Here, Now and Beyond with Christ,” which is the theme of this English Summer School.
Although the word "Rosicrucian" is used by several organizations, The Rosicrucian Fellowship has no connection with any of them.
In the years 1907-08, after being tested for sincerity of purpose and selfless desire to aid his fellowmen, Max Heindel was selected by the Brothers of the Rose Cross to give out publicly the Western Wisdom Teachings and thus help prepare humanity for the coming Age of Universal Brotherhood. By means of intense self-discipline and devotion to service he earned the status of Lay Brother (Initiate) in the exalted Rosicrucian Order.
Under the direction of the Brothers of the Rose Cross, spiritual giants of the human race, Max Heindel wrote The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, an epoch-making book which has now become the Western World's leading textbook on occultism. By means of his own spiritual development he was able to verify for himself much that was given in the Cosmo-Conception, as well as to gain additional knowledge that later become embodied in his numerous books.
One of the basic conditions on which the Western Wisdom Teachings were given to Max Heindel was that no price should be set on them. This condition was faithfully observed by him to the end of his life, and has since been carefully observed by those directing the affairs of the Rosicrucian Fellowship. Although the Fellowship books are sold, the correspondence courses and the service of our Healing Department have been kept on the free will offering plan. There are no membership fees.
Rosicrucian Fellowship Purposes, Aims, and Activities
The Rosicrucian Fellowship is a Christian organization composed of men and women who are students of the Rosicrucian Philosophy as presented in The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception. This philosophy is known as the Western Wisdom Teaching and establishes a meeting-ground for science and religion. Its students are located throughout the world; but their International Headquarters is located at Oceanside, California, USA.
The Rosicrucian Fellowship has no connection with any other organization. It was launched during the late summer and autumn of 1909, after a course of lectures in Seattle by Mr. Max Heindel. A study center was formed and the Headquarters were temporarily located in that city. Arrangements were also made for publishing The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception. With the issue of this work by the Rosicrucian Fellowship, the Association was definitely started.
The work of the Fellowship is to preach the gospel (of the coming Aquarian Age) and heal the sick. This is achieved by making the Western Wisdom Teaching available to all who are ready to receive it and by conducting a Healing Department which emphasizes spiritual healing along with principles of right living. The work of the Fellowship is done through the efforts of its entire membership assisted by Headquarters. Many friends in the world work through Centers which hold classes in the Philosophy and in spiritual astrology, the study and teaching of which is an integral part of the work of the Fellowship.
