#1 Sun

Devi Ylee

~Sun your number is 1
Multiplied by Billions
I am 1 too
With a thousand longings for unity
Before the after
An exaltation of now
In the timelessness of 1
Where I walk without flinching
Thru the burning cathedral of the Summer-Tide –
My bank of wild grass
Ever majestic & full of music
An eternal fire of renewal, pressing life
Against my skin & lips & soul
Where the rays smolder & ripen within me

25 June 2021 – “Speaking with the Stars”: With a bright Moon still in Sagittarius, it’s best to focus on easy targets on the other side of the sky today. Early in the morning a few hours before sunrise, the Great Square of Pegasus — formed by the stars Alpheratz, Algenib, Markab, and Scheat — is high in the east. Enif, in the constellation’s southwestern region, marks the Winged Horse’s nose. This yellow giant star’s total luminosity is 6,700 times greater than our Sun’s. The star itself is also 185 times larger than our Sun. ~ astronomy.com

Sunset: 8:33 P.M.
Moonrise: 9:58 P.M.
Moonset: 6:10 A.M.

Rudolf Steiner’s Lectures on this day(RSarchives) 

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY (The Present Age magazine)

Lecture 1, Blackboard Image 1
Rudolf Steiner Black Board drawing from the Curative Education Course

TODAY 25 in 1924 Rudolf Steiner began the Curative Pedagogical Course in Dornach. Here is a snippet from that 1st lecture:

“…In some corner of the life of soul of every human being lurks a quality, or tendency, that would commonly be called abnormal. It may be no more than a slight tendency to flights of thought, or an incapacity to place the words at the right intervals in speaking, so that either the words fall over each other or else the listener could go for a walk between them.

Irregularities of this kind — and they are to be found also in the life of will and of feeling — can be noticed, at all events to some slight degree, in the majority of human beings. We shall have something to say about them later on, because for anyone who sets out to deal, educationally or medically, with serious irregularities, these slighter ones will be of importance as symptoms. And one must, you know, be able to make one’s own careful study of symptoms, in the sense in which the doctor speaks of symptoms by which he recognises illnesses

Suppose one day a civilisation were to arise that confined human beings in rooms, keeping them there from morning till evening, so that they were debarred from taking any interest at all in the outer world. What would be the result? These human beings would of course by such a process be precluded from acquiring any knowledge of the outer world; and this would mean that when they passed afterwards through death and came into the spiritual world, they would be insufficiently equipped for getting to know the human organism in this spiritual world (where all is contained); with the result that when they descended again to Earth, they would come down with far less knowledge than one who had in his previous life acquired the faculty for looking out upon his surroundings with free, open perception.

There is another secret connected with this. You go through the world. You think perhaps, as you go through the world, that a single day is of little importance. And so it is for ordinary consciousness, but not for that which is building the unconscious within this ordinary consciousness. If for one single day, as you go through the world, you observe the world intently and carefully, then this gives you already the preliminary condition for knowledge of all that is contained in the body of man. For what is outer world in Earthly life is spiritual inner world in life beyond the Earth. And we shall have to speak further of the results that cannot but ensue from our present civilisation, and of how it comes about that children are born defective. Those human beings who live shut off from the world today will all of them at some time or other come down with a lack of knowledge of the human organism, and they will choose ancestors who would otherwise have remained barren. It will be precisely those parents who tend to beget sick or feeble bodies who will be chosen, while those who would be capable of producing good bodies will remain sterile. Yes, it is actually so: it depends upon the whole development of a particular epoch, how a generation, when it descends again to birth, will be formed and built”.
