The Winged Self
It's Purpose & Symbology
 
 

The Winged Self



The purpose of The Winged Self Symbol is to focus though in the inner
Divine perfection of each individual.The Cross of Light holds us in
perfect equalibrium with its inflow and outflow of Cosmic Energies,
through the open ends of the arms.

The Cross balances us in though and feeling and word. It is a
Rosicrucian symbol used to identify one with another when travelling
in "Foreign Countries". In the inner Planes the symbol is an
identification, and those marked with it can always be served with
protection and guidance.

The four arms of the Cross denote our four vehicles. Physical body,
Vital body, Desire body and the Mind. These radiate from the center
from which they manifest. They are located in the World of Life
Spirit, the Home of the Christ. The white Rose at the center
symbolizes the impersonal, selfless love of the Christ.
Each petal is a quality, or virtue unfolding in us.

The wings uplifted, beat ever higher when we give and serve others.
When wings are folded, they gain strength by listening and receiving.
Such is the experience of every soul upon the path.

May the Winged Self serve to make straifht the way of the Christ in
our hearts and thus herald a new and golden age in consciousness on
Earth!

 

Story Behind the Emblem



It was in the late 1930's through the secret Code know only by a
philosopher, Dr. Cunningham, that The Winged Self symbol was
discovered.

In an original, unedited version of the New Atlantis, by Francis
Bacon, and using the Code, Dr. Cunningham was able to interpreted a
story of a vision.

THE VISION WAS A CROSS OF LIGHT, WITH A WHITE ROSE AT THE CENTER.
WINGS AT THE UPPER ARM SPREAD OUTWARD AND UPWARD. AT THE LOWER ARM ,
TWO WINGS WERE FOLDED.

Rev. Gene Sande and the leaders of the NEW AGE BIBLE & PHILOSOPHY
CENTER, agreed this was to
be their Rosicrucian Emblem. Afterward, na artist who was na esoteric student come to them and offered to paint the symbol as a token of gratitude for his enlightenment. Although he was well paid for his talent, and many expressed appreciation, he disappeared from the area and was never seen again.



Prayer of the Winged Self

 



Our God who art our Winged Self
It is Thy will in us that willeth
It is Thy desire in us that desireth
It is Thy urge in us, that would
Turn our nights, which are Thine
Into days, which are Thine also.

We cannot ask Thee for aught
For Thou knowest our needs
Before they are born in us.
Thou art our need
And in giving us more of Thyself
Thou givest all.

- Kahlil Gibran

 

The Winged Self
from The New Atlantis

 

by Francis Bacon



Lord God of heaven and earth,

Thou hast vouchsafed of Thy grace,

to those of our order,

to know Thy works of creation,

and secrets of
them...
I do here acknowledge and testify before this people,

that the thing which we now see before our eyes is Thy finger,

and a true miracle,
The Winged Self!

And for as much as we learn in our books

that Thou workest miracles but to a divine and excellent end,

we most humbly
beseech Thee to prosper this great sign,

and to give us the
interpretation and use of it in mercy;

which Thou didst in some part secretly promise,

by sending it unto us.


- Francis Bacon
