It is interesting (and inevitable) how spiritual groups continually arise and then splinter. Some survive for a time and then fizzle out, whilst others prosper. Isn't that the way of nature?

Here is a little something on the Rosicrucian Anthroposophic League
"Hearkening back to the influence of Rudolf Steiner on Max Heindel, S.R. Parchment, a former member of the Rosicrucian Fellowship, formed the Rosicrucian Anthroposophic League in San Francisco in the 1930s. Parchment wrote a series of books to expound his version of the Rosicrucian teachings:
The Middle Path, Steps to Self Master, Operative Masonry, and The Just Law of Compensation. Parchment offered a variety of correspondence courses using the texts. The League also published a magazine, Rosicrucian Quarterly.

"The occult basis of the League is spelled out in its objectives:

"Investigate the occult laws of nature and the superphysical powers of man.
Promote the principles which will eventually lead to recognition of the truth of the universal brotherhood of man, without distinction as to sex, creed, race or color.

"Acquire, disseminate, and exemplify a knowledge of spiritual truth as given to the world by the Elder Brothers of the White Lodge.

"Study and teach ancient religion, philosophy and astrology in the light of modern needs.
Encourage the study of science and art in the hope that religion, art and science -- which are a veritable trinity, the equilateral triangle which has always been used as a symbol of the Divine -- may again be recognized as
portals through which egos must pass in attaining to the mastery of self.
Attain to self-conscious immortality which is the crowing feat of evolution.
Like Heindel, Parchment had a prime interest in astrology and wrote an astrological classic, Astrology, Mundane and Spiritual. Since his death, the book has been kept in print by the American Federation of Astrologers.
Recent information about the status of the League had been unavailable."​
