‘I Think Speech’

Dear friends, some interesting personal synchronicities have brought forth today’s leading thoughts:

Since ancient times, before the ‘Turning Point of Time’, it was well known that America was a region of the Earth where the magnetic-electrical currents influenced human beings, body, soul & spirit, to a much greater extent than anywhere else on earth. AND Spiritual Science tells us that there was regular traffic to America by many ancient peoples from other regions who came to specifically to study certain forms of illness, which became the original foundation for medical science.

These ancient peoples knew that fom the earth there rays back a ‘Double’ or Saturnine shadow-soul, which is fed by electrical forces which effect the nervous system thru the destruction engendered by our thinking. The ancients discovered that these magnetic currents worked in the subconscious processes of the human body. It was seen as a kind of affinity with Nature & her forces as a strong ‘elemental power of will & an elemental intelligence’ of an intense lower vibration. ‘Magic’ was possible thru the use of these deep-seated powers when they were raised into consciousness by the people at the close of the Atlantean epoch.  

At the time of the ‘Twilight of the gods’ – at the start of the 4th post-Atlantean epoch, the secret of death in life, & of life ever rising out of death, had to go dormant. So it became the mission of Western Christianity – working with the Popes in Rome to stop all traffic to America. They destroyed all records of the many earlier voyages to America done over the millennia, & in about 800 years all was forgotten about the healing data & power of what used to be referred to as ‘The Magnetic Land’.

And so America was said to be ‘discovered’ at the end of the 15th century – interestingly enough by one who had the same name as St. Columba whose job it was to protect the ancient bardic connections to Christianity in ‘Iona, the Isle of the Holy Spirit’, where the powers of paradise still rang, until humanity was ready to receive it anew. But it was ‘rediscovered’ thru the greed of Rome for gold, a short time into the age of materialism of the consciousness soul age.

Welcome – Frank Agrama

Ascension Verse #6 – Geoff Norris

The Secret Teachings, The Elementals, & The Etheric Christ – Hazel Archer

Calendar of the Soul – Luigi Morelli

For those who are familiar with the Calendar of the Soul we could say that during spring and summer we follow the ascent of cosmic life, cosmic light, cosmic warmth and cosmic Word as gifts bestowed upon the human being by the cosmos. By being receptive to them we strengthen our connection to cosmos and Self.

We will briefly explore the dynamics of the year, then look at what qualities of soul we need to develop as we move into spring and summer, most particularly from Easter to Ascension and Whitsun. We will look at the verses of the calendar in conjunction with the artistic renditions of Anne Stockton and Karl König, drawn for each of the verses.

We will ask ourselves: How can we live into and grow from this time of the year? How can we deepen our inner relationship to the event of Ascension? What can we receive and what can we give?

Angels, in the early morning
May be seen the Dews among,
Stooping — plucking — smiling — flying —
Do the Buds to them belong?”

Attaining Imagination and the Life of Owen Barfield

BIO Luigi Morelli. Cultures have been a great part of my upbringing, since I’m American born, part Italian, part Peruvian, mostly grew up in Belgium, and have lived the longest in the US. I have long had a passion for social change from a cultural perspective. Professionally this has brought me to working with the developmentally disabled in the intentional, holistic, communities of Camphill International and L’Arche International, and also in the mainstream. Being a founding member of the Wavecrest L’Arche Community in Los Angeles was a memorable experience. I have lived in intentional cohousing for the last ten years; first in Ecovillage Ithaca, now at Headwaters Cohousing in Cabot, in both places actively involved in community building and process facilitation.
Since 1999 I have found a vocation in researching/writing both about American history and/or about cultural/spiritual change, which you can find at www.millenniumculmination.net. Only of late have I started writing on meditative material I have used for years, publishing an essay on the Foundation Stone Meditation (also onsite) and one upcoming on the Calendar of the Soul. I love outdoors in many forms, gardening, hiking, skiing, love singing and playing flute, and enjoy most kinds of social events.

BIO Geffery Norris was born in Durban, South Africa on 07/09/1951. After extensive performing with the Rock Musical “Hair “in Southern Africa, Portugal and Spain in the early 70’s he continued his theatrical training at the London School of Speech Formation and Dramatic Art, graduating in 1978. He is an actor, storyteller and teacher of voice, movement and drama and has given courses and workshops worldwide integrating the approaches of Rudolf Steiner, Michael Chekhov, Viola Spolin (and others, his own included).and has performed extensively throughout Britain, Eire, Continental Europe, Scandinavia, Israel, Southern Africa, The United States, Canada, China, Taiwan, Japan, and New Zealand. He is a master teacher of Steiner Speech Drama and Movement, with over 46 years of experience in the field. www.speechanddramastudio.com
Norris’s “Noble Art of the Word” puts to shame our modern actors, who fear to bring colour to poetic, rhythmic language, making it monochromatic dull prose. May they learn from one of the best examples. ~Theatre Critic – Olsztyn
