In seeking an ex­ planation, there followed many m ore amazing discoveries.What did these ancient searchers for truth uncover? D id they learn how to draw energy to their em otional centers— for performing miracles and accom plishing feats that seemed im possible to the uninitiated? WHAT ABOUT Y O U ? Are you perfectly satisfied with your position in life? A re you e n jo y in g life to its fu lle st e x te n t? — truly abundantly?

As iron filings respond to the attraction of a magnet, so too. your acts are the result of an impelling influence upon your will. Just as the unseen Cosmic rays give the earth form and substance, so too, from the infinite reaches, an invisible subtle energy affects the thought processes of every human. Life itself bows to this strange universal force—why, then, should YOU not understand and COM M AND IT? You are like a pendulum cither to be swung forward to happi­ ness and the fulfillment of your dreams, or backward into discourage­ ment and disillusionment Why remain poised in a state of anxiety, uncertainty, and anticipation? Learn to draw to yourself these Cosmic forces which will give your mind the creative impetus that will assure the end in life you seek.

Knowledge That Has Endured With the Pyramids

FOR TH E MAI OF L 1F £ H
W H E N C E came the knowledge 11! that built the Pyramids? W here did the first builders in the N ile Valley acquire their astounding wisdom that started man on his upward climb? Did their knowledge come from a race now subm erged beneath the sea? From what concealed source came the wis­ dom that produced such characters as Am enhotep IV, Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton, and a host of others? Today it is known that they discov­ ered and used certain Secret Methods for the development of their inner power of mind. They truly learned to master life. This secret art of living has been preserved and handed down through­ out the ages and today is extended to those who dare use its profound prin­ ciples to meet and solve the problems of life in these complex times.

^JUe Se& iet of
MENTAL CREATING
T F you ju st like to dream , re a d no further. T h e re com es a time when your fancies must be brought into light— and stand the test of every-day, h ard realities. A re you one of the thousands— perhaps m illions— whose thoughts never get beyond the stage o f wistful wishing? D o you often com e to from a daydream with the sigh, “ If only I could bring it about— make it real?” A ll things begin with thought— it is w hat fo l­ lows that m ay take your life out o f the class of those who hope and dream . T h o u g h t energy, like anything else, can be dissipated— or it can be m ade to produce actual effects. If you know how to place your thoughts you can stim ulate the creative proc­ esses within your mind— through them you can assem ble things and conditions o f your world into a h appy life of accom plishm ent. Mental creating does not depend upon a m agical process. It con­ sists o f knowing how to m arshal your thoughts into a power that draws, com pels and organizes your experiences into a worth-while design of living.

OU— your conscious se lf, is su s­ pended betw een tw o w o rld s! T h ere is the world of every day—of colors, sounds and substances. T h ere is also the world of the universes—of m oons, stars, and distant nebulae.
But has your mind ever been suddenly filled with the light of other realities—ideas which, although stimulating and informa­ tive, were strangely nenv and different? Have you had mental pictures of events that your mortal eyes have never seen ? Do vou feel at times as though an intelligence was striving to guide you? Have you found yourself listening to words of inner direction? Behind your thinking mind lies a great middle w orld —the world of the subcon­ scious. It is poised between the world of everyday existence and the great intelligence of the universe. It is this middle world which translates the subtle Cosmic forces which pervade your being, into the urges of self and into intuitive impressions. D o you want to know why you act as you do? Would you like to have access to the source of those talents and abilities which make for the mastery of life? Learn how to explore this middle world.

W h a t Strange Cosmic Power Influences Humans ?
W h a t R i g h t docs man presume that he is the chosen being of the universe and that the earth alone shapes his existence? In the infinite spaces above, tenanted by vast and magnif­ icent worlds, are Cosmic forces which influence the life of every mortal. A s iron filings respond to the attraction of a magnet, so too, your acts are the result of an impelling influence upon your will. Just as the unseen Cosmic rays give the earth form and substance, so too, from the infinite reaches, an invisible subtle energy affects the thought processes of every human. Life itself bows to this strange universal force—why, then, should YOU not understand and COM MAND IT? You are like a pendulum either to be swung forward to happiness and the fulfillment of your dreams, or backward into discourage* ment and disillusionment. Why remain poised in a state of anxiety, uncertainty, and anticipation? Learn to draw to yourself these Cosmic forces which will give your mind the creative impetus that will assure the end in life you seek.

For You — A G ift C o p y of the Sealed Book
Not for the curious nor the skeptical, but for the modern man ■woman the Rosicrucians, a progressive movement of thinking persons, offer a free, Sealed Book, telling how you may acquire the truth about these phenomenal Cosmic powers little understood today and which make for freedom and attainment in life. T h i s is t h e D a y a n d A g e o f M a s t e r y . Throw o ff the age-old custom of— "let life be as it may” —and learn to create it as you wish it.

W h a t Strange Cosmic Power Influences Humans ?
B y W h a t R i g h t does man presume that he is the chosen being of the universe and that the earth alone shapes his existence? ]n the infinite spaces above, tenanted by vast and magnif­ icent worlds, are Cosmic forces which influence the life of every mortal. As iron filings respond to the attraction of a magnet, so too, your acts are the result of an impelling influence upon your will. Just as the unseen Cosmic rays give the earth form and substance, so too, from the infinite reaches, an invisible subtle energy affects the thought processes of every human. Life itself bows to this strange universal force—why, then, should YOU not understand and COMMAND IT? You are like a pendulum either to be swung forward to happi­ ness and the fulfillment of your dreams, or backward into discourage­ ment and disillusionment. Why remain poised in a state of anxiety, uncertainty, and anticipation? Learn to draw to yourself these Cosmic forces which will give your mind the creative impetus that will assure the end in life you seek.

For You — A G ift Copy of the Sealed Boole
Not for the curious nor the skeptical, but for the modern man and woman the Rosicrucians, a progressive movement of thinking per­ sons, offer a free, Sealed Book, telling how you may acquire the truth about these phenomenal Cosmic powers little understood today and which make for freedom and attainment in life. T h i s IS T H E D a y a n o A g e o f M a s t e r y . Throw off the age-old custom of"let life be as it may”—and learn to create it as yo u wish it.

KNOWLEDGE TH A T HAS ENDURED W IT H TH E PYRAMIDS

A SECRET METHOD FOR THE MASTERY OF LIFE

W

HENCE came the knowledge that built the Pyramids and the mighty Temples of the Pharaohs? Civilization began in the Nile Valley centuries ago. Where did its first builders acquire their astounding wisdom that started man on his upward climb? Beginning with naught they overcame nature’s forces and gave the world its first sciences and arts. Did their knowledge come from a race now submerged beneath the sea, or were they touched with Infinite inspiration? From what concealed source came the wisdom that produced such characters as Amenhotep IV, Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton, and a host of others? Today it is \nown that they discovered and learned to inter' pret certain Secret Methods for the development of their inner power of mind. They learned to command the inner forces within their own beings, and to master life. This secret art of living has been preserved and handed down throughout the ages. Today it is extended to those who dare to use its profound principles to meet and solve the problems of life in these complex times.

KNOWLEDGE T H A T HAS ENDURED W IT H THE PYRAM IDS

A SECRET METHOD FOR THE MASTERY OF LIFE
HENCE came the knowledge that built the Pyramids and the mighty Temples of the Pharaohs? Qivilization .began in the Nile Valley centuries ago. Where ■did its first builders acquire their astounding wisdom that started man on his upward climb? Beginning with naught they overcame nature’s forces and gave the world its first sciences and arts. Did their knowledge come from a race now submerged beneath the sea, or were they touchcd with Infinite inspiration? From what concealed source came the wisdom. that*produced such characters as Amenhotep IV, Leonardo da Vinci, Isaac Newton, and a host of others? Today it is \nown that they discovered and learned to inter­ pret certain Secret Methods for the development of their inner power of mind. They learned to command the inner forces writhin their own beings, and to master life. This secret art of living has been preserved and handed down throughout the ages. Today it is extended to those who dare to use its profound principles to meet and solve the problems of life in these complex times.
