The faculties of the old and the new man

Introduction

The Upanishads say with great emphasis: ‘Know thou the One, the Soul. It is the bridge leading to the immortal being. This is the ultimate end of man, to find the One which is in him; which is his truth, which is his soul; the key with which he opens the gate of the spiritual life, the heavenly kingdom.’ The theme of this Pentagram is the unmasking of the quest for this one that is within a human being. Socrates taught that ‘He who knows that he does not know anything is wiser than all other people.’ Through this insight, the way is paved for us to understand the article, titled: The temple, a working place. A temple of the Rosycross may be seen as an ideal representation of the inner temple, waiting to be realised in every human being. In the serene atmosphere of a temple, a person is able to link himself with the truth. If we have learned to see the world as it really is, we know that the truth of the world is finite. Then we are open to a higher truth, a new seeing: we see what can and must occur in a temple working place as well as in our inner being.
