For a great part of the twentieth century, the world experienced many conflicts, including two world wars that surprises in scale and horror anything experienced before. During those times of upheaval, the Rosicrucian mystic Raymund Andrea corresponded with fellow seekers of universal truths, and wrote in several prestigious journals about an alternative world-view which challened complacency and urged mystics to call upon that inner core of goodness and strength that guides humanity to ever greater heights of spiritual discovery.
Andrea wrote in the name of the individual aspirant. In his determined commitment to the way of truth, sincerity, self-knowledge, and above all service, his words illuminate the way forward in the path to personal spiritual unfoldment.
This book is a compilation of many of those letters and artikles, most of which have been out of print since the 1920s and 30s and some of which have never been published before.
Andrea wrote in the manner of the spoken rather than the written word, speaking directly to the heart of the reader, and conveying a deep universal spirituality. Through his words, one is gently drawn towards a cleansing of the mind and a focussing of one’s desire of the heart of spiritual life, the personal expression of the soul in material manifestation. This, Andrea refers to as the “Flower of the Soul”.
Spanning over 50 years Andrea’s writing, this book covers different aspects of spiritual devotion in a non-sectarian and universal sense, and can be used as a wonderful source of inspirational thoughts to begin and end each day.
