Rudyard Kipling wrote many poems & even stories with references to Freemasonry. However he also wrote this Poem which is a reference to Rosicrucianism.
Kipling Joined the SRIA but never advanced further than the Zelator Grade. I have seen his entry in the Golden Book at Hampstead along with his fathers name. (Who advanced considerably further);
This poem was discovered by a good friend of mine who has also written a paper on it. I will try to ask him if he would mind me posting his paper.
Rosicrucian subtleties In the Orient had rise. You May find their teachers still Under Jacatala’s Hill. Seek ye Bombast Paracelsus, Read what Fludd the Seeker tells us Of the Dominant that runs Through the cycles of the Suns. Read my story last and see Luna at her apogee.
With thanks to R.B.
There is nothing more easy than to come to the gate of truth; there is nothing more difficult than to enter it. This applies to most of the wise of this world.

The Ancient: sbs59: Were you suspended for non payment of dues? if so, square up and petition the lodge for a restatement vote. If your dues are current, your still a member. In this case, it is all about the Benjamins.
