The Worthy Grand Master of the English Language Jurisdiction of the Ancient Mystical Order of the Rosae Crucis, AMORC, for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Fr. Sven Johansson end a work visit to Cameroon on the 25th August 2013 after presided over the first AMORC English Convention in Yaoundé under the theme, “Wellbeing – Theory and Practice of Living”.
He was accompanied during the convention by Nigerian born Kenneth Idiodi, the Grand Administrator for English Speaking West Africa and a power delegation of Regional Monitors in Cameroon and Nigeria.
The convention started with the singing of AMORC anthem and short welcome address by the Regional Monitor for Kumba, Cameroon, Fr. Achou Mathias, who said, there was all hope that before Sven Johanssen and Kenneth Idiodi left the country, the mystical note brought by them will regenerate mysticism throughout Cameroon.
Fr. Sven Johanssen said, it was real honour to be in Cameroon for the first time of his life. He was delighted to see what members in Buea, Douala and Yaoundé are doing to keep the flame of AMORC burning. He mentioned that the work of the Rosicrucian Order is spread around the world in 19 international languages.
All members work for the development of wellbeing for themselves, their families and the whole country. Peace, harmony and good will is what members of the order gather in one place to seek. He made it known that all humanity is composed of distant cousins in a biological and genetic sense. Wellbeing is something everybody is seeking for through great health, great thoughts, close relationships, happiness, mental health, financial stability, freedom from economic hardship, learning to support one’s nation aqnd seeking spiritual God day to day.
Striving for wellbeing is always a challenge and it does not come without effort. All creatures seek wellbeing whether we like it or not. He recalled the gospel and reminded participants at the convention, that “In the beginning, God created Heaven and Earth.” The world was void without form and God said, “Let there be light”. This story of creation is only one out of many, many others about the enesis of our existence. One would ask what this has to do with wellbeing. Whether we like it or not we seek reason to believe the story. Wellbeing requires stability which comes from confidence. AMORC members determine for themselves what they want to be through the study of their monographs.
