The Law of AMRA is an ancient law, dating back to the Egyptian mystery schools. The following extracts are taken from the Rosicrucian Order AMORC (Ancient and Mystical Order of Rosea Crucis) booklet, Liber 888, The Council of Solace defining this ancient law.
"...The law simply consists of expressing gratitude, in one way or another, for any benefits one has received, with it being understood that such benefits do not necessarily correspond to material or financial gain..." (underline added)
"...we must emphasize that it is never an obligation. This means that this law must be employed through one's own free will, without the least mental reservation..."
"... this law can be applied by helping persons in need or by taking time to comfort those who are suffering, by making an effort to improve our relationships and in general to better our environment by using our talents and abilities..."
"...If you choose to apply the law of AMRA by means of money, you can do so by making a gift either to one or more persons who you deem are in need; or to a humanitarian organization which will then use it in a positive way..."
