    Computers/ Computer training - this is a business, and I guess I see 'spirituality' (thpiwituality) as something other than this.

    Just seems wrong to me.... mais, c'est mon avis.
    You get a booklet that accurately describes their course. If you are interested then you buy membership for the year, one year at a time and it covers the cost of the mailings. It wasn't that expensive. I did my first year while going to school and it took very little from my wallet.

    If you want a correspondence course from any school you pay for it in advance. I have anyway.

    Actually, some people do make a living out of spirituality.
    If I had bought books instead of that course it would have cost me more to learn what I got from the first year. I just didn't like waiting for each mailing. With books I can buy them when I'm ready for the next one.

    I always hated the lessons that were really short. Even though the content was good, it meant I had longer to wait with nothing to read.

    Oh, don't I know it! I just personally disagree with it!

    I read a book written by a woman who had achieved enlightenment! Well! in the context she was writing about, had she truly achieved the 'no self' then she would not have been able to write a book! Pish!

    I'm sorry if I'm coming across as negative or even agressive in my posts on this matter, and I don't disrespect you for your chosen path, but I personally have a problem with associating money with spirituality... it's simply my opinion

    I was involved in a cult religion in the US, 11 years ago, I guess it's a passionate subject for me.

    Actually, I chose a different path.

    I'm still a Hermeticist, but not a Rosicrucian.

    Also, many spiritualists have trouble asking for money.
    It takes some time to realise that to have the time to spread whatever knowledge you wish to spread sometimes means having to charge for it so you can continue to devote the energy to whatever you are teaching.

    In the same way, someone who is teaching economics gets paid a salary.
    Or an English teacher...
    fill in the blank.

    Here's an interesting site about the core of Rosicrucian knowledge, Hermeticism

    link

    Unfortunately most text on metaphysics is really dry.
    That's part of how they keep it "secret" no one wants to read the crap.

    I studied this for a while. It was ok. It showed me the meaning to study something and put ones heart into it. Eventually though I came to realise this was very slow and quite costly.
    Not bad in the sense it showed me to be a better person.
