salon de la rose + croix

there are so many pretty pictures in the history of esotericism. Here’s one I found in a book today; it was black and white, and I had to look it up online. Salon de la rose croix was apparently a series of art salons, held between 1892 and 1897, by Péladan’s ‘Mystic order of rose + croix’. According to wikipedia, ‘Central to Péladan’s doctrine was the promotion of the arts “especially of an esoteric flavour”, hoping to “overcome European materialism”. The poster advertising the salon is the work of a Carlos Schwabe and, according to the book I’m reading, it is a ‘mystical-allegorical representation of the soul’s way to God.’ (My translation.) The edges of the image are decorated with various rosicrucian symbols. The book I’m reading — a thirty year old book in Swedish — is a fascinating read about initiation as a motif in art, literature and politics; it contains quite a lot on anthroposophy and Steiner, as well.

  1. Inspired me to begin mindmapping cultural and artistic trends and movements around the time when anthroposohy was created. Does anyone happen to know if the more exoteric aspects of Goetheanum or waldorf school architecture has influenced someone outside the anthroposophical movement?

  2. I’m sure it has. I wish my brain was better at storing information, though, because my mind is a blank. But I know I’ve read about such things! Well, except the Bauhaus school. There’s some stuff about that in Cornell’s book.

  3. Dear Unknown Friend (Thanks for your enthusiastic and overwhelming presentations, including the significant works and the insightful viewpoints of the sincerely participating collaborators-truthseekers in heaven and on earth!),

    Being prematurely senile and certainly unsteady in my semi-postmortem state, as related to the multiple standards of the three Akashas, with two of the three none to reliable (astral metamorphoses & objective clair-voyance), during this present situation of the last throes of the great Kalpa, which will culminate in a surprise, ice age(?) extinction, to thwart the accumulating occult home invasions, that have been acceleratingly saturating us with asuric evil (via rf-emf toxins), so that the immanent spiritual death of the causal human creature egos’ can be forced to abundantly occur, as it is now transpiring on the living Mother Being that is the Planet Earth, a no one special, a rather poor version of a shabby Parsifal stand-in, an ignorant, naive, semi-trustworthy, semi-conscientious, deviated human creature such as I, may only make matters worse for you by tarnishing your excellent reputation with this communication, which may foolishly waste your most valuable time, in what most non-impartial readers may easily consider the following Solar Wordage as morally and intuitively translated by a total “air-head” into mumbo-jumbo fantasies. Well, I’ve been known to be blamed for almost an infinite amount of superficialities in the mysterious past aeon. So, if this be the case, then it will certainlly be said by the self-same, cursory folk, that these simplific qualitative words are quantitatively puffy, trite, and foolish for sure. However, just as in the anonymous “whirlwind” warning of the French Revolution, I beg all of thee fellow deviated human creatures of goodwill, to spiritually, and objectively, ken the following round-a-about way of hyper-tonic, keyboard articulations.

    I don’t know if you would be interested in the veraciously testable spiritually objective knowledge that Herr Doctor Rudy has been incarnated in the States for quite some time, and, no, he ain’t me, thank goodness; nor is he a member of the Dorjamb Corporation in Ovaltine land. The most amazing thing about him, at least in my myopic prejudiced eye, is that he has nowhere near the clair-voyance of his former life. However, he is as happy as a caveman could be in a 20-21st century mini-version of anti-monsatan tech. He is not a bodhisattva, although he use to be an outstanding public occultist when in the RS personality. Also, there seems to be a controversy between different factions of anthroposophist voters as to whom may be their unpopular choice in the Matreiya bodhisattva question of the last century. Well, this much can be said, he is, of course, a freelance occultist, who gave the last rites to the General Psychopathic Organization that murdered the Knights Templars, and the great initiate, Hypatia, the beautiful, honorable sophianic pin-up Lady of the Pagan Mysteries. And contrary to public opinion, this particular deviated human creature has way too much Mojo: Earth-Mother, Wisdom Daughter, White Magic, on his occult surfboard to stuff into his rather microcosmic puny corporeal body… until the age of 29-30 or so, when a whole bunch of thunder and lightning calorifically crashes into his poor little ole relatively teensy corporeal body, which instantly and dynamically re-orients him to a particular “barrel” (or organization*). Also, at this critical stage, he will be etherically refreshed by a former incarnational memory of his, such as an Abraham or David, etc. He incarnates once every century. (*Please note: it only takes one rotten apple to evilly spoil any whole “barrel”)

    Avatars have been phased out by THE Avatar (funny? in person, back in the days, he shore looked a lot shorter (5’11” tall, 174 lbs.), then the present distorted clairvoyant version). Adepts have been phased out by Manes. (Apollonius of Tyana, was the last one to officially move his physical body, trans-dimensionally, in public). Great Initiates have been phased out by Manes, also; the last Great Initiate was Peter, the “cocka-doodle-doo-er”, in his George Gurjieff incarnation (yes, Rudy and Joey T., didn’t like ole “Gurge”!). Finally, Occultists will be phased out in the future (such as Rudy & Valle). This is because: (A) “How can Adult Students in the daily school of life, Karma 101, be free with their overwhelmingly, pubertic, addictions to training-wheel ‘idols’?” And: (B) “Guess what deviated human creature beings are going to replace these old workhorses?: Morally Altruistic Freelance Earth Goddess-Oriented Shamans, and, undercover, anonymous, blue-mug, galactic-solar, stew-pot, bodhisattva invisible nobodies.

    Here is a possibly priceless, thumbnail guide, that can help to keep the employment of the principles of the book, “Philosophy of Freedom”, dynamically “centered” in “Alpha Intention” and “Omega Syntax”: (1) Moral Intuition: Altruistic Thinking: To present a Morally Imaginative parable (or story) to a fellow deviated human creature (that can help not only the deviated human creature, but, also, in potential, the animal creatures, the plant creatures, and the mineral creatures): this occurs after “wrestling” with the Moral Intuition first, so that IT can be appropriately “translated” into an Moral Imagination. Two inspiring “helpers” in the process of doing all of this are: (a) to know that e-v-i-l, that is, selfish desire or ego-mania, and, self-deceit or uncorrected stupidities, result in self-denial or subconscious spiritual death, and, thus, it is that evil makes everyone the “same”, that is, without l-i-v-e (or life). And (b): To activate karmic clairvoyance (actually, clairaudience), by asking yourself the question, “How did this fellow deviated human creature become such as it is?” (2) Moral Imagination: Altruistic Feeling: To appropriately “translate” the Moral Imagination (or Moral Invention) SO THAT the one to whom it is presented can comprehend it. Also, it is extremely good to remember, here, that polar bears may know 27 kinds of snow, but an American Shaman must know at least 789 kinds of Americanese, and be able to use Occult Literality: that is, a combination of metaphoric and literal, earth-words to “present” the “gift” with intensive Alpha Intention, Omega Syntax, Discriminate Attention, Reflective Attention, Manasic, and/or Buddhic Awareness, and the Heart-Chakra Dynamic Priorities of Total Recall in the MOMENT, all the while looking appropriately natural and/or like an unnatural idiot, for the self-same specific moment. This human self-knowledge hint may help also: “A man’s conscience is only as good as his level of honesty to his hypocrisy”. (3a) Moral Application: Altruistic Willing: This has already been done in (1 & 2), however, to completely finish the altruistic giving of the parable “present”: (3b) Occult Metaphor must be used, that is: To give credit to the Moral Invention of the “parable” (or present) to a “fictional” being who “literally” exists, for example, the bartender (Christ), the barmaid (Sophia), or the bouncer (Michael), or the anonymous lady you met at the cleaners (sybil, dakini, salamander, group-ego of the beautiful bee(s), etc.).

    true friendship is an altruistic gift… Leroy Jacobowski.

    thanxs, AMEN.

  4. ‘group-ego of the beautiful bee(s), etc.).’ I believe this is a clue of some kind. Or a sign.

  5. No, you are not an alien! Mr Dog told me – he assured me you smell all too human.
    He sent me an e-mail while you weren’t looking.

  6. Unfortunately, you’re right. He always encourages me to roll in rotten carcasses. Says it will improve my smell. ‘You smell so human! No wolf will EVER take you seriously!’ he says.
