encouragement. Next time you send your report or label to the Fellowship,

An agreement to end the lawsuit filed to protect the land of Mount

fellow Marie-José Clerc
achieved her main goal, which was the protection of the land of the Fellowship.

An agreement to end the lawsuit filed to protect
the land of Mount Ecclesia
This open letter is to say
thank you to all of you for the courage and good will you have shown by deciding
to sign an agreement to end the lawsuit filed to protect the land of Mount
Ecclesia. As you can clearly understand, this agreement doesn't go to the
benefit of an individual, it is a mark of honor and respect we the Founder of
the Rosicrucian Fellowship and to those Higher Beings, the Elder Brothers of the
Rosicrucian Order, who inspired and supported that work from the beginning up
today. By deciding to protect the land of Mount Ecclesia, you also show your
attachment to the destiny of that Holy Place and your confidence in its future
for the good of all Humanity.
After you and me, others are coming...your
descendents and mine, the future generation are coming and would be very glad to
find that place and to learn that some of us made a very constructive effort to
preserve it during a very testing time. As the Sun approaches to the Aquarian
Age, we can expect Mount Ecclesia to become more and more closer to achieve its
destiny. When we will have succeeded to all the test, we will see The Roses
Blooming at Mount Ecclesia and the Panacea will attract million of people
seeking spiritual food for their souls and spiritual healing for their pain.
Once again, thank you for your courage and fidelity to the Great Work.
(...)I wish you all a Happy Holy Season,
and I pray that God be with you and grants you enough Wisdom to serve in His

fo the Board of The Rosicrucian Fellowship
December 26, 2006
A Letter to Students of the
Rosicrucian Fellowship has reminded me, that, "To whom much is given, of him
much will be required." Yesterday, we celebrated Christmas and today I am
celebrating "Boxing Day." After a day of laughter and decadent food,
this holiday is celebrated in many Commonwealth countries and falls on the
first weekday after Christmas. During this day, we deign to acknowledge the
existence of others and we give gifts and donations to the needy. However,
it is also a day for lounging around with our family, taking some time to
count our blessings, enjoying our new gifts, sharing our reasons for being
and visiting relatives. "Boxing Day" is many things to many people, but for
me it is a way to give loving service to others in the manner I have
Benjamin Franklin said, "How many observe Christ's
birthday! How few, his precepts! O! 'tis easier to keep holidays than
commandments. " If you were too sleepy to do so last night, take the
time today to reflect on and be thankful for some of the gifts you may
take for granted. Even if you do not have the wealth you want or have not
accomplished all your life goals, be thankful that you have a soundmind and
natural ingenuity. I have found that the Letter No. 30, which Max
Heindel wrote to the students in May 1913, gives us another perspective for
providing loving service to others. For those of you who can use a reminder
I attach this letter, below, in its entirety.
In last month's lesson we saw the value of discord in music; also
the corresponding role of evil in the world, namely, to enhance by
contrast the beauty and harmony of good. Thus, it might seem at a
superficial glance as if the apparent evil had been designed by God, the
Author and Architect of our system--as if He were responsible for all the
pain and sorrow under which the world is groaning. Such is not the case
however. The Bible says truly that the Elohim, who were His agents, "saw
that it was good" when their labor was done. Our Rosicrucian
Cosmo-conception and Lectures 13 and 14 explain in detail the Bible story of
how the apparent evil came in through the Lucifer spirits; and that when it
had entered, the forces, which work for good, used it to serve a beneficent
purpose and to achieve a higher good than possible without this factor.
In the latter part of the Lemurian Epoch and in the early Atlantean
times, man was pure and innocent--the docile ward of guardian angels who
guided his every step upon the path of unfoldment. He had no reason; that
would have been unnecessary when there was only one path to follow, for in
that state there was no choice. The Lords of Venus were sent to foster
goodness, love, and devotion. Had no disturbing factor entered, this earth
would have remained in a paradise, and man would have been as beautiful
flower therein. Pain, sorrow, and sickness would have been unknown. Under
the regime of the lunar angels and the Lords of Venus, man would have
grown wise and good automatically because there would have been no
alternative. When the Lucifer spirits opened his eyes to the other
course and the Lords of Mercury fostered reason to guide him, he became
potentially greater than either as required of those who follow the spiral
path of evolution.
Thus equipped with choice and reason, it is man's
glorious prerogative to elevate himself to the pinnacle of the greatest
perfection possible in this scheme of evolution. Therefore, Christ said,
"He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater
works that these shall be do."
Let us learn from the Faust myth to follow
in the footsteps of our preceptors by using the seeming evil to accomplish a
greater good; let us learn not to be overcome by evil but to overcome it and
transmute it into good. There is a saying that "whatever is, is best."
If that were true there would be no incentive to strive for anything higher,
better or greater. The words of the Savior urge us onward and legends like
the Faust myth teach us how to use the seemingly destructive and subversive
To whom much is given, of him much will be required. Students of
the Rosicrucian Fellowship who receive the advanced Western Wisdom
Teachings are particularly obligated to make great efforts. May we
strive with all our strength to live up to our grand privilege.
Many new students have been added to our list since we asked your daily
prayers for the workers at Headquarters. We therefore feel that it will
serve a good purpose to reiterate the request to please include us in your
devotions and ask that the Rosicrucian Fellowship Headquarters may become a
most efficient Spiritual Center. We are, as you know from the prospectus,
now about to open the School of Healing, and in this important step we feel
the need of the grace of God as never before. Please help us so that we may
succeed. [Letters to Students, p. 77-79]
