Christian Rosenkreuz: Where Is He Now?
"Christian Rosenkreuz" is the name given, in the course of human spiritual evolution in the West, to a Spirit incarnating/incorporating in human form repeatedly whose nature is the thoroughness of thought permeated by the selflessness of perfect sacrificial love, a selflessness which penetrates all obstacles by surrounding them and putting them in its own context.
Martin Luther King, Jr.'s relationship to Christian Rosenkreuz was tangential, in the sense that Rosenkreuz finds it possible to further his own impulses directly only where unity with the folk soul of the German-speaking people is present. That he found such a possibility in public life beginning in the period after 1950, when L. Ron Hubbard's Dianetics was published, is an assertion which can only be vehemently and even violently opposed by those who may fail to attain the capacity to see in that publication the seminal event of English-speaking culture since the death of Victoria.
Rosenkreuz's descent into the hardship--facing occult brutality directly of a kind that only Christ Jesus had, prior to this, been asked to encounter and overcome--constituted by a life lived in the full glare of electronic media attention began through his profound love for, and resulting freedom to engage intimately on the level of physicality embodied in the human etheric sheath with, the soul incarnated, from 1931 until his violent death at Michaelmas of 1955, as James Dean. Dean became a candidate for this service to human spiritual evolution through his unity with the impulses of the Central European traditions of theater (thought, speech, and emotively saturated deed) embodied in the work of the Meiningen Ensemble, as conveyed through Konstantin Stanislavski to teachers of the "Method" school of acting.
After the death of Dean, Rosenkreuz discovered his next vessel for direct engagement in mainstream civilization in the activity of another Hollywood star, Bruce Lee. His death via pharmaceutical intervention at the age of 33 was timed in such a way as to prevent his appearance in works within which the depth of his philosophical thought (an emanation of a prior incarnation of this soul in Central Europe) would have been able to make its way into world civilization without its becoming necessary to bring that depth to bear in circumstances that would isolate it from meeting young souls capable of being inspired in mainstream cultural life by such depth. Such isolating circumstances prevailed in the movement of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, whose son Heung Jin--the incarnation of a soul never before incarnated and thus able to take on any impulse--became the vessel for Rosenkreuz's activity from immediately after Lee's death until that vessel's own spectacular crossing of the threshold--after a brutal car accident at Christmas when the body then permeated entirely by Rosenkreuz's impulses was seventeen years old--on January 2, 1984.
The course taken by Rosenkreuz from "The Day of the Irreversible Victory of Love" declared throughout the cosmos that day must remain hidden from public scrutiny, as had always been the case prior to 1950, until the brutal murder, on October 12, 1998, of Matthew Shepard can be acknowledged as the last performance of this Spirit on the world stage, and the last moment when the degree of sacrifice to which It was willing to be subjected, for a period of exactly fifty years, was considered necessary by the Powers It obeys. This sacrifice makes possible, for the first time, the reconciliation of the powers of obedience with the powers of freedom.
Since the turn of the twenty-first century, Rosenkreuz has withdrawn into the kind of activity that holds promise of the gradual emergence, peacefully, naturally, and beautifully, of the kind of cultural progress of which the West and world civilization under its influence had begun to show the promise before World War I devastated the hopes of countless souls united with the impulses of selflessness and love referred to most accurately, thus far, in human speech with the word "Christ."
