Ascension Sunday – an afterimage from “Crowning“:
If we start to follow our thinking in a state of tranquil contemplation, with attention centered within the heart, a message may begin to unfold.
The spiritual center of our earthly existence resonates as subtle currents in the form of a Being of Light, which can continue to work towards its own transformation.
The lifelines of this emerging form collect at the base of the spine & become a bearer of this eternal grace, moving dynamically into the heart-center, where, in a system of vibratory circles, all the forces intersect & concentrate themselves. This center is the source of the inner fire of unending love.
We are the gold at the end of the rainbow, a radiant aura of Light & color, able to receive the powerful beam of currents from the cosmos. We rise in our thinking & Spirit descends – strikes the center & directly generates a harmoniously vibrating spiritual body-field.
All is weaving, pulsating rhythm, enshrined in the circle, the logo of infinity.
The sign of unity is accomplished 1st in the vertical, meeting the horizontal at the crossroads, which then births the center – the spiritual heart, the true “I”, where we must cultivate the offering of the 7 Roses, whose fragrance wafts out, feeding all worlds -a new garden – a verdant network of subtle being – fresh formative forces of light, thru which harmony unfolds, blossoms & ripens.
All is striving movement – intuitive, Wisdom-filled transformation, on a plane that is free of the sleep of the unexamined life.
The result is that the field of inner, heart-vision can be extended toward others & the world.
If we contemplate these energies, these imaginations, these thoughts, in reverent, open minded love, we can create a conscious transition – from slave to sovereign – from shroud to crown – from a matter-bound human being in space, to a Being of Light – We become: Anthroposophia – in time out of time, NOW.
(dedicated to Jordan Walker of ‘Wisdom Working’ & Angela Foster of ARC & Anthroposophy Atlanta)
“In my heart,
In my soul,
I will breathe,
The strength of the Sun,
I will feel,
The warmth of the world.
Sun-strength fills me,
World-warmth penetrates me.”
~Rudolf Steiner, Mantric Sayings, GA 268
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
24 May 2020 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Open your inner senses to ‘observe’ the distant dwarf planet Pluto this morning. Rising higher with each hour after midnight. Picture this planet of revolutionary change meeting up in the west with the benevolent King -bright Jupiter. to the east the father god of Time Saturn joins them.
Bella Luna passes south of Mercury in the dawn twilight, north of asteroid Vesta, both meeting blocked by the rising Sun.
1543 – Death-day of Nicolaus Copernicus
1612 – Death-day of Sir Robert Cecil, Secretary of State for King James.
1844- 1st telegraph message by Samuel Morse “What hath God wrought?”
From the dream last night:
~My double motioned toward a door
That opened from air into air.
With her eyes she asked
“Does your heart know the name of this gate?”
“Being” I said
“And the lands on either side?”
“Now & then”
“Pass then, she smiled & see now the New Isis”
I stepped thru & nothing changed,
Yet I had entered heaven.
And in the distance a jackal howled at the stars.
~Vitae Sophia~ A Whitsun Festival of United Soul Endeavor with Hazel Archer-Ginsberg
Online Whitsunday, 31 May 2020 from 10 am–11:15 am EDT Zoom Call*
Through leading thoughts and conversation we are called to redeem the ether spheres to create an Ecclesia, a chalice for The Sophia. Then the spirit flame can spread out to become what Steiner called a “World Whitsun”, which began in earnest at the Christmas Conference. The Whitsun Festival highlights one of the greatest challenges of being human: placing our individual gifts, in right relationship within the social realm. This challenge is especially strong now during this ‘pandemic’. Our groups striving to know Spiritual Science must work together as a community, to have the possibility to create a new culture where a sacrament is possible in every encounter. Our individual strength is enhanced by weaving our gifts together, kindling our social world in conscious community.
