Glossary entry for
Holy Rosey Cross

"The Holy Rosey Cross" is a reference to The Rosicrucian Order, formally The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (which literally translates into the Ancient Mystical Order of the Rosy Cross). The Rosicrucians are an organization of people who study metaphysics the ultimate nature of reality. There is no religious connotation associated with the Rosy Cross symbol; it predates Christianity. The cross symbolically represents the human body and the rose represents the individual's unfolding consciousness. Together, the rose and cross represent the experiences and challenges of a thoughtful life well lived.

The Rosicrucian system attempts to provide a foundation tying together all aspects of metaphysical study, and tries to demonstrate their interconnectedness. The system of study is based on the belief that understanding the natural laws that govern all realms -- physical, mental, emotional, psychic, and spiritual -- leads to true prosperity and peace of mind. The Rosicrucian Order purports to provide a systematic approach to the study of higher wisdom.
