    ISBN #978-0-911274-81-3 Max  Heindel,  spiritual  Initiate  and  messenger  of  the


    Rosicrucian Brotherhood, was born in Denmark on July 23, 1865.


    He became a shipping engineer and eventually emigrated to the


    United States. By 1905 he had become seriously interested in the


    study of metaphysics, and spent the next few years consciously


    working and searching for spiritual Truths. When he was visiting


    Germany in  1907,  the  Elder  Brother  of the  Rose  Cross  who


    became his Teacher made contact with him on the inner planes. He


    was instructed in the etheric Temple of the Rose Cross, receiving


    the occult  Teachings that  he eventually incorporated into The


    Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, published in November 1909. He


    founded The Rosicrucian Fellowship in August 1909, and spent


    his remaining years,  until  January 6,  1919,  writing,  lecturing,


    establishing  Fellowship  Headquarters  in  Oceanside,  California,


    and generally spreading the Teachings of Esoteric Christianity -


    the pioneer spiritual Teachings which will prepare all humanity for


    the New Age of Aquarius, when all nations will join in Universal


    Brotherhood. An Interpretation of Our Symbolism


    How often have we looked at the cover of the Cosmo-


    Conception  and  our  other  publications  and  perhaps


    remarked that it was a good design and quite unique, and


    wondered who made it up, and if it meant anything at all.


    The following are the thoughts of one who has often tried to


    interpret it.


    At the foot of the cover is the fleur-de-lis, the emblem


    of the Trinity - Father, Son and Spirit - but as only the


    Father and Spirit were active at the time here represented,


    we find but two of the petals colored with red, thus showing


    energy.


    The beings created we see as a stream flowing upwards,


    provided for a time with but two bodies, the dense and the


    vital, but after a time the desire body is added and is shown


    by the red appearing in the ascending stream.


    Although each stream looks alike outwardly, they are


    vastly different, the one on the left being known in our


    literature as the Sons of Cain. They are full of positive


    energy  and  are  the  craftsman  of  the  world,  the phree-


    messen, who carve their way through life, rather enjoying


    the obstacles which  they know strengthen  the character.


    They work through the intellect, as is shown by the lamp


    from the flame of which proceeds nine rays, showing the


    positive path chosen by the esoteric student.


    The other stream develops the heart side of life and the


    divine flame proceeding from it shows but eight rays, a


    negative path. Those following it, desiring that they should


    have a leader, someone to follow, someone to worship, they


    are the churchmen of the world who obey the teachings of


    their leaders.


    Each stream of life flows onward side by side till a time


    comes when the wise and loving ones guiding the evolution,


    decide that to hasten progress it is necessary that the two


    unite  and  plan  that  this  shall  be  accomplished  by  the


    building of a Temple for the worshipers by the craftsmen and that both streams would unite in a Mystical Molten Sea.


    We can see the wonderful impulse by the chalice raised


    from each and filled with the red wine of life. You will read


    the story of this in the building of Solomon's Temple. This


    plan was frustrated by the treachery of the Sons of Seth -


    those on the right. And after this each swung further away


    from the other than before.


    A serious condition now is shown in which some appear


    to fall away entirely through materialism. But still the race


    lives on, the churchman and the scientist, the mystic and the


    occultist, each pursuing their own path independent of the


    other, till a stage of such materialism is reached that the


    spiritual guiders see grave dangers ahead. To prevent the


    plan  of  evolution  being  defeated,  a  great  destruction  of


    human bodies is permitted - the present war (World War 1) -


    which for a time looks as if it would wipe humanity off the


    earth. See the break in each stream. But this calamity has


    the desired effect, we now see again great force and each


    stream turned directly towards the other, where they may


    shortly unite as one.


    At the foot of the page we find another symbol, so small


    that you may have overlooked it. Here is a small black


    cross, that represents the physical body.  In the enlarged


    head of the cross is seen the heart. Heart and head have


    united and the result is shown in the spreading ray - the


    resultant soul body.


    Still another emblem occupies the center of the page -


    the Rose Cross. The lower limb represents the plant life,


    which draws its sustenance from its roots. At one time of


    our existence we were plant-like. The cross piece is the


    emblem of our passage through the animal stage with its


    horizontal spine. The upper limb is the symbol of mind


    which is a human attribute, and the radiant star represents


    the golden wedding garment which shall make us divine. FOREWORD


    This  compilation  of  material  concerning  the


    health  and  healing  of  the  human  organism,  as


    considered  from  the  occult  viewpoint,  affords


    those  interested  in  attaining  and  maintaining


    health  a  treasure  chest  of  valuable  information.


    Max  Heindel,  a  trained  clairvoyant  and


    investigator of the super-physical worlds, devoted


    much  time  and  effort  to  ascertaining  the  real


    causes  of  physical  and  mental  disorders  as


    revealed  in  the  realm  of  cause,  the  higher  or


    superphysical planes, and this volume contains the


    fruits of his labor. It embodies some of the most


    priceless truths in regard to the origin, functions,


    and proper care of the vehicles of man to be found


    on the printed page, and those concerned with the


    true  art  of healing  will  find  it  an  indispensable


    addition to their libraries.


    Christ admonished His disciples, “Preach the


    Gospel,  and  heal the  sick.”  Maintaining  health,


    when  once  gained  or  regained,  requires  a


    knowledge of “the Gospel”, or laws of God, and it


    is therefore in light of both parts of the command


    of the Great Teacher that this book is dedicated to


    the afflicted of humanity. May the contents of its


    pages, permeated as they are with the love and compassionate understanding of the mystic heart


    of the author, be the means of bringing new solace


    and relief to countless aching hearts and suffering


    bodies, as well as speed the day for the generation


    of more perfect human vehicles.


    Note to the reader: Occult Principles of health


    and  Healing  is  a  compilation  of  materials  from


    multiple books.  A space between the paragraphs


    indicates the next paragraph is from a different book


    or  different  section  of  the  same  book—the  two


    paragraphs  are  not  related.    If there  is  no  space


    between  the  two  paragraphs,  then  the  next


    paragraph continues from the previous paragraph. CONTENTS
