|I'm starting to read about Rosicrucianism, particularly via Rudolph Steiner, and finding it very interesting - particularly in the kind of theological holes in modern day reading of the bible that get explained.
What I want to sort out though is the association of St. Germain with Rosicrucianism. I know that the 'I AM Activity' and some other groups like to talk about the violet flame, however that doesn't seem like something that would jive with Rudolph Steiner's take on the metaphysics of things - ie. Jesus (Zarathustra + Buddha) received the commission and final readiness at his baptism to help pull us out of our spiritual nose-dive into the bowels of materiality through the Kali Yuga by dying on the cross and in doing so he made contact with the etheric body of the earth in such a way that he became the sole go-between.
I know Steiner had clashes with the Theosophic society over believing in one ultimate world savior (ie. Jesus) rather than a new one with every new procession of the equinox.
Was Steiner off on his own with respect to his core teachings (ie. is Rosicrucianism a more loosely-knit philosophy) or was violet flame something that other groups outside of Rosicrucianism tacked on to St. G for their own purposes?

|Steiner was a true initiate. Steiner is more on point then the I AM activity.
Steiner was Awake.
"When Besant, Leadbeater and others studied the Krishnamurti case, they were dazzled with the splendid light of that christified Buddha, and as they did not know Christic esotericism, blindly believed that Krishnamurti was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ."
"The mistake was not in clairvoyance, the mistake was in the lack of intellectual culture. They only knew the Theosophical septenary. They only knew the body, soul and spirit, but they ignored that beyond... Every man has a Ray (the Internal Christ) that links it to the Absolute. "
If not already I would not waste your precious time with I Am Activity teachings.. I would study his books. In conjunction with his works, I would study the most well-known literary monuments within esotericism, including Helena Petrovna Blavatsky's Theosophical writings, the Fourth Way teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff and P. D. Ouspensky, the sacred sexual teaching books of Samael Aun Weor, the Kabbalistic and Initiatic literary canon of Dion Fortune and Manly P. Hall, the sacred Buddhist manuals of Padmasambhava, Tsong Khapa, Shantideva, and Nagarjuna, the occult middle eastern wisdom of the Holy Qur'an and mystical Sufi writings, the Eastern and Western Esoteric Traditions, etc.
