I can remember when joined the Order back in 2012. I felt nervous about that decision. Mainly because I had no real idea of the Rosicrucian teachings, and I never met one. I read a lot of the public works and found them to be very informative and interesting. The vast amount of topics covered so much mystically, and the historical content was amazing. Everything seemed to align and resonate with me. I thought it was to good to be true. I eventually came across articles that attempted to place the Order in a negative light. Even after reading those articles, I just couldn’t ignore the desire to join.
Because we don’t have a temple in my state, for years my work was done at home. For awhile I would receive notifications from the lodge in Dallas. They would arrive at times when I was not financially able to attend. And after Ten years, I made my first temple initiation last month. I can now experience each initiation in succession, through the month of December. Indeed, it feels like the start of another journey.
Currently, I’m still in the process of meeting and building relationships with the members of my lodge. Besides myself, there were Ten of us that had the beautiful experience of initiation. It is something that you must do if you are on this path. I thought it was to late for me. Like I wasted so much time. In truth, I didn’t waste any. Like a seed that has been planted, conditions must be met first, before it begins to grow.
