Dorothy Hinkle-Uhlig translated the results of a meditation by Thomas Mayer on the corona virus (covid 19). She received this work in March 2020 from a friend.

  • My (Thomas Mayer) own meditative work and research with the Corona Virus revealed the following: My main intention was to meditate on the waves of fear and here I found many fear elementals that were filling the entire world. They were acting aggressive and very foreign, as if coming from another star. They are not coming from present humanity and this is perhaps why humanity is reacting so strongly, which in turn drives the fear waves further with their own feelings and actions.
  • These elementals belong to the soul level of the corona virus. Since worldwide the attention is directed to them, they go everywhere. This means that through our fear of the virus, it is present everywhere on a soul level.
  • When did these corona virus elementals arise? It was surprising to me to experience that they arose in very old times during the earth incarnation on the old Moon. This is where the angels of today went through their human phase.  Soul substance that had become evil and the related Angels who remained behind and who had come in connection with the Ahriman and the Asuras separated. This separation was necessary for the development of other beings and was accomplished by very strict angels. I assess that they were of the Hierarchy of Exusai.
  • I can experience these strict angels again now. They are the guardians of the corona virus, which is challenging human beings. The angels are of the opinion that the time has come that the separated group, which has been leading an “otherworldly life”, should and can be integrated. They remind us with this of the very old collective unredeemed shadow and make possible the redemption.
  • On January 12, 2020 there was a very special and rare constellation of the planets: a conjunction of Pluto, Saturn, Mercury and the Sun. The emergence of the corona virus correlates with this date. When the planets remind us of the essential, would it not be astonishing when, with that, responsibilities arise.
  • What exactly do the corona virus elementals want? They want to be integrated again into the earth evolution and they want to get to know and experience the Christ. I have had very good experience, when I encountered the corona virus with a positive attitude und showed them the Christ, when I showed them the nature beings, and when I prayed for them the Lord’s Prayer through. They received the impulse well and were ready to transform. At the same time, I had the sense that in the depths of the human being something became more complete.
  • This work is to be continued, because new corona elementals will continually come. Here we have a large mountain to work through.
  • I can recommend these and similar redemption meditations. The atmosphere relaxes immediately. That is the best answer from the Spirit. Each individual contribution changes the collective field and is important.

1919 – Opening of the 1st Waldorf School in Stuttgart “A Ceremony of Cosmic Order”

“We can accomplish our work only if we do not see it as simply a matter of intellect or feeling, but, in the highest sense, as a moral spiritual task. Therefore, you will understand why, as we begin this work today, we first reflect on the connection we wish to create from the very beginning between our activity and the spiritual worlds. With such a task, we must be conscious that we do not work only in the physical plane of living human beings.

In the last centuries, this way of viewing work has increasingly gained such acceptance that it is virtually the only way people see it. This understanding of tasks has made teaching what it is now and that the work before us should improve. Thus, we wish to begin our preparation by first reflecting upon how we connect with the spiritual powers in whose service and in whose name each one of us must work. I ask you to understand these introductory words as a kind of prayer to those powers who stand behind us with Imagination, Inspiration and Intuition as we take up this task.

It is our duty to see the importance of our work. We will do this if we know that this school is charged with a particular task. We need to make our thoughts very concrete; we need to form our thoughts so that we can be conscious that this school fulfills something special. We can do this only when we do not view the founding of this school as an everyday occurrence, but instead regard it as a ceremony held within Cosmic Order. In this sense, I wish, in the name of the good spirit whose task it is to lead humanity out of suffering and misery, in the name of this good spirit whose task it is to lead humanity to a higher level of development in education. I wish to give the most heartfelt thanks to this good spirit who has given our dear friend Mr. Molt the good thoughts to do what he has done for the further development of humanity at this time and in this place, and what he has done for the Waldorf School. We are united with him in feeling the greatness of the task and of the moment in which it is begun, and in feeling that this is a festive moment in Cosmic Order, he will be able to work in our midst with the necessary strength.

We wish to begin our work with this in mind. We wish to see each other as human beings brought together by karma, who will bring about, not something common, but something that, for those doing this work, will include the feeling of a festive Cosmic moment. ~Rudolf Steiner, ‘The Foundations of Human Experience’.

11 thoughts on ““A Ceremony of Cosmic Order”

  1. Hi Hazel. I know this sounds so dogmatic, but it is Steiner that felt compelled to issue the warning about CC and Anthroposophy remaining apart. Of course, as free beings here in the modern age, we can eat all the apples and oranges we want, and wear belt AND suspenders if we so choose. Here is an interesting essay by Alfred Heidenreich, given in 1942, which explains how it came about that CC and Anthroposophy should join forces for a greater good. Maybe it can be arranged. If so, then the Priest Course on the Apocalypse of St. John is absolutely essential reading. Lecture IV for example; it is all about Ephesus, and how a mystery school once existed in Ephesus.

    https://antro.no/kristensamfunnet/trondheim/AlfredHeidenreich.pdf

  2. Hi Hazel,

    Rudolf Steiner gave a course of lectures to the Priests of the Christian Community in September 1924. In these lectures, he felt compelled to revise certain indications he had given back in 1908, concerning the Apocalypse of St. John. This course is an eye-opening experience, and especially with these recent meditative findings coming from Thomas Mayer concerning Covid-19 in 2020.

    Steiner’s course to the Priests was an effort to establish a fourth mystery epoch of our time, and since he knew that his own time was short, he gave every last bit of his energy in transferring responsibility to them for continuing to tell how the Apocalypse of Saint John was an actual historical event, and being played out in historical time.

    https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA346/English/UNK1995/Apocal_index.html

    In these lectures, Steiner changes everything that he had previously said, i.e., GA 104. In other words, the Apocalypse actually begins with the incarnation of Christ at the physical midpoint of earth evolution two thousand years ago. He takes the priests through all of these events since Christ, and then tells of what the seven letters mean, and then the seven seals and trumpets, and finally the seven woes of the vials of wrath.

    So, it is all contained therein, and he wants the priests to acknowledge it and go to work to further its cause. For example, the sounding of the 7th trumpet corresponds to the end of the 20th century. The sounding of the 6th trumpet corresponds to the year 1924, when Steiner heard his own bugle. The seven seals were opened throughout the period of the Crusades, and wherein the downfall of the Knights Templar, beginning in 1307 is noteworthy. In 1337, the Hundred Years War between France and England would begin.

    In lecture thirteen, he especially describes how the woes are now upon us. I think he describes it as the era of “the third woe”, in the aftermath of WWI, which punished Germany to an extreme degree for a war that was actually a very reactive and entirely contributory war. So, we are in the era of the woes, which involve the pouring out of the seven vials of wrath, which have their origin in the seven deadly sins of gluttony, sloth, etc.

    So, it stands that by the time of the sounding of the 7th trumpet, at the end of the 20th century, we have also the beginning of the 7th woe, and this is the pouring out of the last of the vials of wrath. This leads us to this present Covid-19 pandemic. Remember, in 1918 a major pandemic occurred in relation to WWI, and it coincided with the end to the war based on the American presence.

    By 2020, we have a whole new era, although we need to consider how much WWII furthered the pouring out of the vials of wrath during its time frame. As well, the war on terror, based on the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001, is an important event in not only wanting to instigate another Hundred Years War, but also this Covid pandemic in which materialistic thinking rules, and its precious technology reasoning.

    I always have to inveigh, remember Steiner’s final leading thoughts about beware of the sinking into the sub-earthy domain where technical science dwells. This is where we are at as a society today. Who sees occultism as a solution today to the materialism and its barbarism? Nearly nobody, except a few anthroposophists who keep the faith. Take it to the GAS, and they don’t even know who you are. John Bloom talks about the money in its threefolding domain; screw the money. Sorry John, but I am getting on a rant which ends now.

    1. I am very interested in this idea of ‘a fourth mystery epoch of our time’.
      I feel a calling to explore the work of the esoteric school that Steiner was leading before the war to bring a renewal to the Rosicrucian impulse, as the good doctor did for the Christian Community.
      I believe the 2nd & 3rd Class would have had more of a focus on gesture & the Reverse Ritual or cultus which was experienced in the supersensible Michael School.
      But many in the ‘Society’ are afraid to go there, perhaps it’s too soon. i have let that deter me & of course there is always another thing to do, another thing to study, etc. I must make time to fulfill this calling even if it’s just for my own research…’For the Time is at Hand’ !

      1. Dear Hazel,

        The Fourth Mystery Epoch is specifically directed to the Priests of the CC, and wherein the Book of Revelation is used to reveal initiation at its highest stage, which is the Ego itself. Rudolf Steiner commissioned the priests for a special mission, which was to take this book and open its parameters fully as part of its consecration activities. Thus, Steiner gave 18 very precise lectures to the priests, which develop this charter given to them.

        https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA346/English/UNK1995/Apocal_index.html

        He was also lecturing at the same time with the last course on Karmic Relationships, as well as a course on Pastoral Medicine, as well as two final lectures to the workmen, and so his plate was full. Yet, these lectures to the priests are filled with an incentive that he is giving them as a kind of charge to make this happen.

        Steiner’s esoteric school had to be elaborated differently when the war began, and Michael was invoked as the impulse for the beginning of the third phase. This is described in the first lecture of GA 157, where the right spirit of the age is sought for the help that will be needed for the immediate future. So, a cessation of the ES took place in deference to the war, but Steiner would pick up the incentive later, and especially in 1923, after the burning of the Goetheanum.

        I don’t know why many in the society would be afraid to go anywhere if the divine life is revealed to the senses and its cognition. And, it is being revealed in any number of ways today, even with the pandemic itself. We live in the midst of ‘Apocalypse Now’, and this is what Steiner wanted the priests to know, and carry forward rather immediately. He had come to the end of the line, or he would have done it himself. The responsibility is overwhelmingly strong here. This had to be told.

        Interestingly, I have been engaged in a kind of deep discussion on this matter of the course to the Priests with a fellow correspondent, who is also very much a keen student of the early ES lessons up to 1914, and so maybe (hopefully) we can continue along this line. Any New Mystery still requires dedicated effort, and a leader in the cause.

        1. Our study group at the Christian Community here has taken up the book of Revelation along with Emil Bocks look into this work.
          I have also done other studies along these lines & as you say this is much needed now in our time. Of course Lazarus John was the 1st to practice the reverse ritual, even in that early time, to rise in his thinking to meet the spiritual beings that spoke to him. How do we listen? How do we take these esoteric truths & put them into action in our lives & in the world?

          1. Hazel, these latter-day lectures to the priests is an eye-opening experience, and one needs to read them for a particularly important fact; the future has been unfolding ever since Christ incarnated on earth. Thus, the letters, seals, trumpets, and vials of wrath have been a sequential set of occurrences ever since the Baptism, when the Lamb of God approached his cousin, John, and was submerged in the waters of the River Jordan. This is symbolic in order to indicate that the last measure of the fluid mineral was complete, and the solid mineral condition begins when Christ-Jesus walks out of the Jordan onto the dry land. Thus, begins the death-phase of earth evolution as to its uniquely mineralized condition. The future begets the Apocalypse in real-time, and the historical era begins with what Steiner called, The Renewed Solomon Epoch.

            So, any study between Anthroposophists and the Christian Community is very interesting. You might find a certain resistance on their part to delving into the more intricate workings of the Apocalypse, and this requires a close reading of each of these eighteen short lectures. Steiner is assuredly encouraging them to a higher task in the rendering, and I wonder if Emil Bock actually did see this.

            For, you see, Rudolf Steiner felt it important to distinguish between two movements here. The Anthroposophical movement, which he entirely sponsors, and then the Movement for Religious Renewal, which he acts as a helper in its origin. Thus, for reasons contained here in this lecture, the separation between these two movements must be maintained, or an apocalypse stands to occur.

            https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/RelMov_index.html

            The nature of the apocalypse is one of weakening each discipline if they come together and try to integrate. The reason, and Steiner carefully explains this, is that anthroposophy contains everything in itself for an act of consecration and transubstantiation, and yet, he knows because he hears from those that cannot tolerate anthroposophy in its pure form, that they desire a liturgical format, and a mass ceremony in order to conduct this act, similar to the Catholic church.

            The goal was always for the strengthening of Christian Community toward its eventual abandonment of what is actually a crutch; a weakness in not being able to assimilate anthroposophy directly, in favor of a ritual and ceremonial order. Steiner saw this as their evolutionary challenge, and whereby they needed to be left alone to conduct their ritual and ceremonial order. Anthroposophy, at all cost, needs to remain separate, individuated and integral to its own cause, and not involved with CC, and this is so that they can find the path to the spirit without a house built with human hands.

            So, it seems to me that any study group of anthro’s working with CC is kind of like the man who wears both belt and suspenders. As the analogy goes, it is all about security, and we seem to need security in these apocalyptic times. Yet, it is all right there; knowledge is power.

            And, especially if it has a heart. Because then knowledge becomes being, and being becomes understanding.

  3. I love this site. Where can I find the meditations given by Thomas Mayer with regard to the corona virus elementals?
