Foreword
The contents of this book are among the last writings of Max Heindel, the mystic. They containsome of his deepest thoughts, and are the result of years of research and occult investigation.He, too, could say as did Parsifal: "Through error and through suffering I came, through manyfailures and through countless woes." At last he was given the living water with which he wasable to quench the spiritual thirst of many souls. He also developed to their depths pity andlove, and could feel the heart throbs of suffering humanity.Strong souls are usually endowed with great energy and impulse, and through these veryforces, they forge to the front ranks though they often suffer much. As a result they are filledwith compassion for others. The writer of these lessons sacrificed his physical body on thealtar of service.In writing the books and monthly lessons of the Fellowship, in his lectures and class work,and in the arduous pioneer work of establishing Headquarters within the short span of tenyears, Max Heindel accomplished more than many who are blessed with perfect health couldhave accomplished in a lifetime.

, has found its way into many Masonic libraries. The occultisthas received much from the book entitled,
, which is a mine of mysticalknowledge and helpful occult truths. It is also a guide to the investigator, establishing dangersignals for the venturesome ones who wish to take heaven by storm. To the science ofastrology he has given more in a few years than has previously been discovered for centuries.His two valuable works,

, deallargely with the spiritual and medical aspects of astrology. The latter gives methods ofdiagnosis and healing which form a valuable addition to the works of other authors, bothancient and modern. These books may be found in the libraries of many doctors of the oldschool.In
Gleanings of a Mystic 
are found twenty-four lessons which were formerly sent out tostudents. It is the wish of the writer of this introduction that these lessons may carry a messageof love and cheer to the soul-hungry reader and hope to the disconsolate one.
