UN-SELF THE SELF
Lectorium Rosicrucianum Hellas - International School of the Golden Rosycross
OPEN DISCUSSION AND REFLECTION WITH A “HERMETICALLY OPEN CENTER”
19:00 am on Friday 1th April 2016
at Orizon Center for Life & Creation in Aptera
The overcoming of the part of our self, known commonly as “I”, and our hidden within it "Self",
will be the basis of our common discussion and reflection.
"Two souls, alas, are dwelling in my breast,
And one is striving to forsake its brother.
Unto the world in grossly loving zest,
With clinging tendrils, one adheres;
The other rises forcibly in quest
Of rarefied ancestral spheres."
— Johann W. Goethe, 'Faust'
"Stand where the darkness of your existence begins and shout into the emptiness.
Definitely it will answer you."
— Lao Tse
Lao Tse describes here the moment during which the mortal part of ourselves, which we call “I”, reaches the limits of its capabilities.
Then it begins to perceive and come into contact with the immortal aspect -the unknown side- of the “Self”, which the Rosicrucians call "Microcosmos".
If we can see and understand these two parts of the human entity, then we are offered the great opportunity to realise the renascence of this Microcosm.
“Ask not of things to shed their veils.
Unveil yourselves, and things will be unveiled.”
― Mikhail Naimy, 'The Book of Mirdad'
“Who knows others, is intelligent.
Who knows himself, is wise.
Who masters others, has strength;
Who masters himself, has power.
Who doesn’t loose his place, will last.
Who does not wane even in death, lives.”
― Lao Tzu, 'Tao Te King'
"You are the exercise yourself. And nowhere is the pupil.”
— Franz Kafka
