How can we best achieve our personal goals—not just to benefit ourselves but also our loved ones and wider communities? Mastering Life introduces comprehensive and effective methods to transform the self, enhanced by the meditative use of magical symbols and sacred words. These help us identify our aspirations, combining goal contemplation, visualization and meditation techniques. Through these processes, we can gain control over spiritual forces that work within our destiny, attracting favorable outer circumstances in everyday life.

Dr. Gruenewald offers a set of practical tools:

  • A spiritual symbol and mantra for meditation that can enhance our capacity to manifest harmonic goals
  • Contemplation—courageous conversation with our resourceful self—to enrich imagination and willpower
  • Resilience-building techniques, active listening, mindful nature observation and transformation of negative emotions
  • Harmonization of our goals with the developmental needs of others, in freedom and love
  • Contemplative work with the initiatory Temple Legend narrative (featured in the book) 

In this accessible handbook, the author shows how we can call upon the assistance of spiritual beings and masters who serve the development of humanity—including Christian Rosenkreutz, whose pupils have long used magical symbols and verses for meditative and ritualistic work.
