The Eterna!





From Infinite Cause to Man
Who has not at some time gazed in awe at the inky canopy of the night sky? Myriads of shimmering lights perfórate this veil of mystery. What relationship have thesedistant worlds to our own? Are Ufe and selfconsciousness but a chance phenomenon of Earth alone? Are there but blind ponderous forces creating in ceaseless change the forms which man experiences in his moment of eternal time—and is man, too, butone of their passing expressions without purpose or destiny? Since time immemorial, men havesought to understand the Absolute. Is it a conscious determining cause? Does the human mind have a bond reaching beyond its shell, the body, which ties it fast to the infinite cause? If so, by what means can man draw inspiration, personal power, an inner peace from such unión? Down through the centuries, the Rosicrucians have sought and found answers to these challenging questions. Their answers have satisfied self and enriched personal living.

W ho Are The Rosicrucians?
The Rosicrucians are men and women who have been motivated by the eternal quest for truth. Being brought together by a common purpose, they—centuries ago—instituted the Rosicrucian Order. It is a nonsectarian fraternal body, devoted to the investigation, study, and practical application of natural and spiritual laws. The purpose of the organization is to enable all to live in harmony with the Creative, constructive Cosmic forces for the attainment of health, happiness, and peace. The Order is internationally known as "A M O R C ” (an abbreviation) and the AM ORC in America and all other lands constitutes the only form of Rosicrucian activities united in one body. The AMORC does not sell its teachings. It gives them freely, with many other privileges, to affiliated members. Thoughts about our Cosmic origin and the desire to awaken and utilize fully our latent powers and talents are not limited to any or class of people. Consequently, Rosicrucians are to be found in every walk of Ufe and in every civilized land.
