From a FAQ on Rosicrucian Teachings:

What is the core of the Rosicrucian Teaching?



The core of the Rosicrucian Teaching is the gospel of service.

For our sakes Deity manifested the universe. The great creative Hierarchies have all been and some of them still are our servants. The luminous star angels, whose fiery bodies we see whirling through space, have worked with us for ages, and in due time Christ came to bring us the spiritual impetus needed at that time. It is also significant in the extreme that in the parable of the last judgment Christ does not say, "Well done, thou great and erudite philosopher, who knoweth the Bible, the Kabala, the "Cosmo" and all the other mysterious literature which reveals the intricate workings of nature" but He says, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: * * * enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. * * * * For I was hungry, and you gave me meat: I was thirsty, and you gave me drink; * * * ." Not one single word about knowledge; the whole emphasis was laid upon faithfulness and service.

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise
of intelligence.

-Bertrand Russell





I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only
ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and
found how to serve.

-Albert Schweitzer
