A Conference Center in the Valley of the Thracian Kings
We, the Bulgarian pupils of the Golden Rosycross, have a dream. We want to build a conference center with a temple in the center of Bulgaria, in the ‘Valley of the Thracian Kings’. For this purpose we have bought a piece of land there - in the village ‘Krasnovo’, located fifty kilometers from Plovdiv.
We know that Bulgaria has a rich spiritual heritage. Three impulses of the Universal Teaching have been radiated from these lands: the mysteries from Orpheus and the Dionysian religion during the Thracian empire, the movement of the Bogomils in the Middle Ages, and the White Brotherhood of the Master Peter Deunov in our times.
The Fourth Impulse
This rich spiritual past, combined with the actual atmospheric conditions of the Age of Aquarius, provides a mighty basis for a new impulse of the Universal Teaching. The glorious ‘Law of the Light’ says: Where the Light once has shone, it will return there! We believe that the time for the fourth impulse has come! The number four is connected to both the square and the cross. The square symbolizes realization, building, the resurrection of the inner temple, or in more mystical terms: the Word becomes flesh. The symbol of the cross tells us the same: it is the vertical Christ radiation which connects to, and transforms, the horizontal, material, plane of life.
The Sacred Art of Temple Building
Rosicrucians always have practiced the sacred art of temple building. They build outer temples to facilitate the process of the resurrection of the inner temple, mindful of the words of the Christ: “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” It is in this newly raised Temple that God meets his servant; here the covenant between God and man is signed again. Already in the time of Orpheus this covenant was symbolized by an inscribed tablet which was placed in an ark.
As many others, Orpheus has paved the way for the ultimate realization of the inner Christianity, and so do we, as modern temple builders!
The Age of Aquarius
We have entered the Age of Aquarius. This era is associated with growth of consciousness, dematerialization, transparency, openness, equality and brotherhood. The atmosphere in which we live becomes more fiery; mankind has to cope with the fifth ether, the fire ether. The vibration rate of the atoms increases and old crystallized structures are broken up.
But now the key question is: do we have something new when the old forms disappear? Hence we understand that we live in a critical moment in time.
We believe that all people with a spiritual orientation should support each other in these crucial times. By doing so we can form a group which has enough strength to inform, help and prepare the rest of mankind. We, pupils of the School of the Golden Rosycross, accept our responsibility in this process. That is why we want to build a mighty conference center in the Valley of the Thracian Kings. We want to offer the people a place where they can work on the transformation of their soul, where they can resurrect the inner temple. This is the new body which is needed in this new era! At the same time this conference center will radiate our liberating message with force into the atmosphere: to awaken the ones which are still sleeping!
