Re: The dilemma of being a member of AMORC

I have been in AMORC for 27 years and am leaving this year. I do believe that I was supposed to experience the Order and learn from it, but I always felt "out of place." I think the danger is that one subconsciously accepts the fear of being judged not to be a "good member." Any established organization is going to have its own principles and rules - if you are a member, you abide by them. Right now, I feel released from a straitjacket. Being a "Rosicrucian" does not mean being a member of AMORC. It is much deeper and older than that, and beyond any physical organization. Unfortunately, there are some in the administration who are very controlling and force their rigidity on others. I can say that anyone actually practicing being a "walking question mark" was not really accepted, especially if any actions taken by the Order were criticized. Frater Nerveno, you must have more experience in the Order before you can make statements that really mean something. You are being ridiculed here because you sound like a cult member.
Peace to all..
