Our Explorations don’t need any foreknowledge.
Exploration 1 Why do we seek?
It is as if we are missing something; as if there is something fundamental that we lack. Efforts to fill this void are made on every level, and by every kind of person, from the most primitive to the most refined. On the primitive level, such efforts are manifested as the desire to gain possessions, or to satisfy one’s passions, or to ensure one’s personal security and material well being. In the more refined sense, it takes the form of striving for high ideals like freedom and perfection, or a life free of danger and conflict, or justice and harmony.

Exploration 2 Why do we exist?
The School of the Rosycross considers the human being’s only task to be: cooperation in a process that will make possible the rebirth of the original, divine Human Being. The primordial atom in the heart is the indestructible seed of this Human Being, from which the process of rebirth must begin. It is the primordial atom in the heart that arouses pre-remembrance and disquiet in the I human being who, compared with the original, divine Human Being, is not much more than a caricature. Yet it is the I being’s vocation to enable the rebirth of the original Human Being. Our intelligence, our will, and even the very structure of our whole biological system bear witness to the hidden possibilities with which this task can be fulfilled.

Exploration 3 Who are we?
When people use the words ‘human being’, they often mean only the self, the I personality with its body and mind. But in reality the human system is much more than that. In fact, the human being is a microcosm, a miniature world.
The microcosm is spherical and sevenfold. One can say that it comprises seven fields of existence rotating concentrically, one within the other, with the primordial atom as the central point.
So the being we normally think of as ‘man’ is only the mortal form or personality of a microcosm. The ‘human being’ and the microcosm in this state do not participate in the original divine plan; they live completely outside it.

Exploration 4 Can we really change?
The essential basis for finding and following this path lies in the centre of your being, in the heart. This is the key to understanding the origin and purpose of your inner urge to seek. When this understanding of the meaning of human existence begins to dawn on you, you will see that, even now, in the midst of present day life, there really is a path that leads to liberation.
