Over the period of the next six or seven hundred years, the composition of the earth's atmosphere will undergo a gradual but profound change which has a deep, divine purpose. Successful adaptation to this change will offer tremendous possibilities for liberation. Failure to adapt will obviously create increasing difficulties and disorganization in the human system. Based on lectures given in 1949, The Great Revolution predicts many of the symptoms of this atmospheric revolution. Now, in the 21st century, traces of these effects can readily be observed in the world around us - indicating that this decisive transformation is now well underway. What can we do to minimize its negative effects, and make the best use of the possibilities for liberation it offers? These are the questions answered in this book.

The changeover to the Aquarius-era is characterised by a mighty upheaval on virtually all levels of life; an upheaval which is not held back by any boundary and which is not limited to a particular continent, race or people, but makes itself felt over the whole world on every level of life.
The Universal Doctrine shows us that the repeatedly manifesting upheaval is directly related to the changeover from the Piscean era to that of Aquarius, which is now taking place.
The consequences of this changeover for us all, and also the great, liberating possibilities offered to everyone by this Great Revolution are set out clearly by the authors of this book, which will be of tremendous significance for all who yearn for liberation.About the Author:
The two main authors whose works are published by the Rosycross Press, Jan van Rijckenborgh (1896-1968) and Catharose de Petri (1902-1990), devoted their lives to forming the School of the Golden Rosycross. Their goal was the formation of a group of people in whom the I-central consciousness had been shifted from its position as 'king' in their inner being, and restored to its proper role: that of 'servant' to the growing Spirit-Soul, the true Self or inner Christ. However, they were faced with the difficult task of building a bridge of understanding between this goal and the minds of people who, though they had a deep interest in the hidden side of life, saw it largely through the lens of the separative, I-central ego.
Throughout all the many hundreds of talks they gave, and the books they wrote, it is clear that their aim was to cut through the conditioning of the ego so as to give their pupils a distinct vision of what was required of them. To do this they expressed the essential teachings of Spirit-Soul rebirth in all kinds of different ways and considered them from countless angles. Often they found it necessary to speak in a rather emphatic way, and to depict in stark, bleak outlines the depth of human imprisonment in the material world. Always, they used texts, stories and symbolism drawn from all times and all places to illustrate their points, and to show that the transfiguristic path they were teaching was not new, but has been handed down - though often in veiled form - ever since the dawn of human development.
Thus, although the methods they taught were adapted to modern times, their teachings were essentially the same as those of earlier groups such as the Essenes, the Christian Gnostics, the Manichaeans and the Cathars, to name but a few.
