“We must realise that from a certain point of view the smallest and the greatest achievement of which we are capable are of equal importance for the whole. Life is a mosaic, composed of tiny pieces of stone. The man who places one little piece into the mosaic is not less important than the man who thought out the plan of the mosaic.” ~Rudolf Steiner – GA 118 – Düsseldorf, February 20, 1910
On this 19th day of our Lenten-Tide journey I invite you to contemplate your piece of the mosaic, your contribution to divine plan…What 1 thing can you do everyday to enhance the collective reality?
10:10 Testament: I shared the concept of our initiative of creating a collective egregore – a willed visualization at 10:10 everyday, with the participants of the YIP 13 IF on Sunday during the ‘Project Lab’ which I will share as soon as they release the harvest. I was thrilled by the many responses & wanted to share one that I put into action myself today. I spoke my prayer/intention/verse into a glass of water & then poured it in the earth…
RUDOLF STEINER’S CALENDAR OF THE SOUL
translated with added titles by Roy Sadler
LENT 4, PASSIONTIDE I
The Passiontide Hope
I feel the force of Cosmic Being,
speaks clear thought,
recalling how its own spirit’s grown
in world nights’ darkness,
and bowing to the dawning cosmic day
with inner rays of hope.
EASTERTIDE IV, BELTANE
I feel the essence of my being,
speaks senses’ feeling,
uniting in the sunlit world
with all that shines;
it would add warmth
to thinking’s clarity
and marry Man and World.
We are looking forward to seeing you at
The Anthroposophical Café!

Holding the Chalice of Balance with Archangel Raphael – An exploration of the Vernal Equinox with Hazel Archer-Ginsberg*
At the time of the Spring Equinox, Raphael, Archangel of the East & the Element of Air, is active as the great Cosmic Physician. The Easter-Tide works on us thru the spiritual healing of inspiration, when we can open to the crowning of all truths found in the healing breath of humankind. In the Spring, the Easter event is recalled in many cultures & although the Mystery of Golgotha entered into the evolution of the Earth as a once-and-for-all event, it is renewed in us each year.
