If you are interested in the Rosicrucians, this book will provide some insight into the study of ancient mystical, philosophical, and religious doctrines and concerned with the application of these doctrines to modern life.

I found the book to take some familiar Christian teachings, and expand on them to a level that I never considered. I expected that this book would also be filled with references and annotations to substantiate many of the "teachings", but that was not so. It took some time to

A good book with interesting philosophy built on Hermetic tenets. The main body surrounds the subtle body and life after death. A MUST read. Will learn more of the philosophy in Cosmo conception. Not keen on the Christian bent, but Heindel posited what he knew, and really can be applied regardless of religious leaning.

An interesting view on death and reincarnation

Heindel uses what is essentially M-Theory as the proof of the possibility of clairvoyance roughly 100 years before M-Theory is even developed. He then goes into great detail the process of death and reincarnation, explaining every step of the process.

Its starts off seeming profound, only in the end to decay into a schizophrenic like diatribe. Entertaining none the less; I couldn't put it down.

Meh. If you want to get a solid dose of Rosicrucianism, read the Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception.

“But what we are, we are, on account of our own diligence or negligence, and what we shall be in the future depends upon what we will to be and not upon Divine caprice or upon inexorable fate. No matter what the circumstances, it lies with us to master them, or to be mastered, as we will.” 2 likes
“We have been speaking of ether as an avenue of forces , a word which conveys no meaning to the average mind, because force is invisible. But to an occult investigator the forces are not merely names such as steam, electricity, etc. He finds them to be intelligent beings of varying grades, both sub and superhuman. What we call “laws of nature,” are great intelligences which guide more elemental beings in accordance with certain rules designed to further their evolution.” 1 likes
