I am pleased to present the following excerpts from the Rosicrucian book “Whisperings of Self” by Validivar. Men are united by the fact of religious experience, not by their collective interpretation of it. The most golden treasures of life are its beautiful memories. The labors involved in complex living are far in excess of the pleasures extracted therefrom. Everything is both cause and effect. It is an effect of a past cause. But it is likewise a cause of the effect that will emerge from it in the future. Each lends the color of his understanding to his surroundings.
