'!7hen talking to friends, family and strangers about the Order, the most effective thingyou can do is tell about your personal experience. You can feel free to talk about
the content ofrhe monographs, and about how you feel you have changed or been helped by them. And ifyou feel it would be helpful, you can show one or two ofyour monographs so the person you're talking to can see what they're like. \tr0'e ask, however, that you not share monographs which include rirual or spe cific exercises. After all, we dont wanr to spoil the comingrituals or exercises should the person decide to become a Rosicrucian student. h is understood that we are not giving monograplx to people to 'W'e study. are simply sharing one or two lessons with those who might have misgivings or great curiosity about the nature of the monographs themselves.
