We will now continue with a selection from the chapter titled, “Living Fully,” from Frater Ralph M. Lewis’s book, “The Sanctuary of Self.” “What do the Rosicrucians say of life? We say that life— physical existence— so far as mankind is concerned, is for a very definite purpose. We are permitted to experience it so that we may learn the laws of existence— our own and those of other things. This is accomplished through our combating the forces of nature which are around us. Only as we face opposition, only as we place ourselves where we are exposed fully to the laws and phenomena of the universe, are all of our faculties, all of our powers drawn upon. One who excludes himself from the world, who becomes an anchorite or a hermit, fails to utilize all of that of which he is capable, and consequently learns little of the laws of existence.” “Likewise, a man who does not exercise his reason, or a man who does not employ his emotional and psychic faculties and powers, is not living as a human. He is neglecting that of which he is capable. In other words, he is opposing the very order of his existence. He can come to know only ennui by such living.”

“The Rosicrucian conception of proper living is, first, to departmentalize one’s being, and then to determine what are the principal elements or factors of which one is composed. This is not difficult. You recognize your physical and material being. You know that if you neglect your body, the physical side of yourself, you are closing a door on a part, an important part, of the complexity of your nature. Again, you recognize that you have an intellectual part to yourself, that you have such faculties as reason, cogitation, and imagination. If you neglect them, then again, another part of your being is deteriorating, atrophying from disuse. If you neglect any part of your being, it is like blindfolding one of your eyes. The function of your vision becomes limited. Therefore, your conscious existence may become distorted.”
