Einstein's God: Science, Free Will, and the Human Spirit – Brain Pickings

When we look out into the world today we see something that has already been there for many years: a tremendous amount of destructiveness. There are forces at work that give us an inkling of the abysses into which western civilization is still to plunge. Looking at those individuals who externally are the cultural leaders in the various fields of life, we notice how they are enmeshed in a terrible cosmic sleep. They think, and until recently most people thought, that until the nineteenth century humankind was childlike and primitive in its insights and views, and that now that modern science has entered into all the various fields, truth has at last arrived, truth that must be upheld forever. People who think like this are, without knowing it, are living in a state of tremendous arrogance. On the other hand, here and there amongst humankind today there are some inklings that things are perhaps not as the majority would like to imagine.”~ Rudolf Steiner – GA 260 – The Christmas Conference- Part Two: The Procedings of the Conference – Dornach, 1st January 1924

The past is a foundational memory. The future calls. This moment is the birth place of time- the forever we are ever making – the wellspring that we draw from. This moment is expansive, elastic, a point & periphery breathing us. The span of now depends on our consciousness. For someone who is drowning or has some other out of body experience, a second can contain a person’s entire life tableau. What about the consciousness of spiritual beings like our guardian angel? Perhaps this moment may be the length of one earthly life, or it may be stretched out over many incarnations at once.

The Christ impulse is the embodiment of the moment. Born in eternity – eternally born in all time, all the time. Everything about the rhythmic system where the Christ principle expands & contracts in us, is of today, not yesterday or tomorrow, but now. The Christ is the embodiment of the Cosmic Today, of the Cosmic Moment. And this eternity reaches down into the earthly now. Every moment we are asked to live wakefully in the Cosmic twinkling of today. I am not yesterday, I am not tomorrow, I am now. And to live into today, to be wide awake now, to act out of the I in the present moment, is to be aligned with the eternal, while living in the temporal, in full consciousness, aligned with love & light.

11 April 2021 – “Speaking with the Stars”: One very easy pattern to find at this time of year is the magnificent constellation Orion the Hunter, now descending in the west after sunset. Orion is easy to find because it contains a very noticeable pattern of three medium-bright stars in a short straight row. These stars represent Orion’s Belt. If you can find Orion, you can use it to star hop to Sirius, the sky’s brightest star, in the constellation Canis Major.

~I pulled down the stylus of fire & a tablet of crystal
‘Write it all down’ She said…
So I wrote; not what I saw, but what I knew…
Then She parted the bones of my chest
& buried the words in my drumming heart…
Now messages course thru my veins
Etching themselves in the lines of my palms…

Ascension: The ‘secret teachings’, the Elementals, & The Etheric Christ w/ 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?

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.

Geoffrey 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.

Sunday, July 16 - Mountain View United Methodist Church
June Kemly

This is the seed time…when the chains of death are broken & life bursts forth from the earth. Each day another minute of light triumphs over the darkness. The elementals arise, & wait for us to work with them in good will. The Sun stretches out its hand to the child within us all, bidding us to return from the land of the dead, to be cloaked in the fresh rain. Enlivened with the sweet scent of aspiration on our breath, we can joyfully step forth. As the wild flowers send their pastel shoots up from the brown compost, our souls dance in delight.  Despair turns to hope, sorrow to joy, want to abundance…

If we do not spring forward, we will surly slip back. Within our own minds many detailed explanations may exist – excuses? -that keep us from moving forward. To put them in perspective we can see them in relation to the 4 basic elements…

1st choose the area of your life you want to focus on, such as relationship, health, career, clarity around direction, spiritual growth…etc…

Then begin in the East: Air – What thoughts bind you? Are you too scattered in your thinking, can’t make up your mind? Too dogmatic? Suffer from monkey mind? Inner critic on overdrive? What do you need so that you can create a positive thought pattern? What does a free mind look like?

South: Fire – What binds your will? Are you too impulsive? Too willful, or perhaps your will is unfocused? Not able to take action? Feel fearful-unsafe? What do you need to empower your will force so you are free to take action?

West: Water – What emotions bind you? Are you too sensitive? Do you hold on to old feelings? Or are you rigid, not able to be empathic? Can’t go with the flow? How can you reclaim your creative fertility & be compassionate to yourself?

North: Earth – Does necessity bind you? Are you stuck in the mud? A perfectionist? Is nothing ever good enough? Perhaps you find it hard to complete things? What would it look like to be grounded, productive, prosperous & steadfast in your determination to create & manifest?

Perhaps this Spring season will call you to re-dedicate yourself to the 6 Basic / fundamental/ Essential Exercises…

From Rudolf Steiner: A meditant should do these six exercises:

1. Control of Thought: Think about a simple object for at least five minutes. Hold it fast in thoughts without going over to other things. This exercise arouses a feeling of firmness in the pupil as it activates the chakra between the eyebrows. One should send this feeling through the brain & down the backbone.

2. Control of will (acting on your own initiative): Do an unimportant thing every day at a certain time. This exercise also gives firmness.

3. Develop equanimity, that is, one shouldn’t fluctuate between rejoicing to heaven & despairing to death. A joke can be enjoyed just as much if we don’t laugh uncontrollably. We can bear a pain better if we don’t wallow in it too much. This gives us a feeling of quiet calm that we can let stream from the heart to the arms, & out through the hands.

4. Positivity: See the beautiful & true elements in all things. Christ Jesus admired the beautiful teeth in a rotting dog, where his disciples only saw ugliness. We can discover at least a small kernel of truth & something beautiful in everything. If we do this exercise for some time it gives us a feeling of great joy.

5. Open mindedness: Always be open to new things. We should never say: I never heard of that, that can’t be, or I don’t believe that. We should always leave the possibility open that we can learn something from everything that people say. We can learn from children, animals & everything else. This gives us the feeling that we could also perceive things while we are outside the body.

6. Inner Harmony: This exercise is a combination of the preceding ones, so that we can combine two & two or any way one wants. By doing this, we get the feeling that we have grown beyond the limits of our skin.

By practicing these basic exercises we develop our soul forces of Thinking, Feeling & Willing, creating new spiritual organs of perception. May we all take up the work of transformation which will lead us into the Resurrection.

Blessings of becoming dear friends

Rudolf Steiner’s Lectures on this day

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

1827 – Death-Day of Ludwig van Beethoven, German pianist & composer

1856 – Birthday of Fritz Lemmermayer, an Austrian writer, journalist & closest childhood friend of Rudolf Steiner in Vienna. Fritz was a passionate anti-materialist, he wanted to devote his life to the creation & maintenance of spiritual values. In 1883 he completed his novel “The Alchemist”. Rudolf Steiner met Lemmermayer again in 1886 in the circle of the poet Marie Eugenie delle Grazie.  An extensive correspondence attests to the close friendship between the two (see GA 38).

Steiner says: Fritz Lemmermayer, with whom I was later on terms of intimate friendship, I came to know at one of delle Grazie’s afternoons. A highly noteworthy man. Whatever interested him he expressed with inwardly measured dignity. In his outward appearance he resembled equally the musician Rubinstein and the actor Lewinsky. With Hebbel he developed almost a cult. He had definite views on art and life born out of the sagacious understanding of the heart, and these were unusually fixed. He had written the interesting and profound romance, Der Alchemist(3), and much besides that was characterized by beauty and depth. He knew how to consider the least things in life from the view-point of the most vital. I recall how I once saw him in his charming little room in a side-street in Vienna together with other friends. He had planned his meal: two soft-boiled eggs, to be cooked in an instantaneous boiler, together with bread. He remarked with much emphasis while the water was heating to boil the eggs for us: “This will be delicious!” In a later phase of my life I shall again have occasion to speak of him ~Rudolf Steiner, The Story of My Life, Chapter VII Lemmermayer & Steiner joined the ranks of the Viennese artist circle in the house of the protestant priest Alfred Formey. In 1891 Lemmermayer was vice president of Schrifstellerbundes Iduna , named after Iduna , the Norse goddess of youth & immortality a counterweight against the currents of naturalism. Lemmermayer  became a member of the Anthroposophical Society  in 1920. He Steiner on many trips through Austria, Germany, Switzerland, France, Holland & England.  This led to his 1929 published memories,  where he spoke about Rudolf Steiner, Robert Hamerling & other personalities of the Austrian intellectual life of the 80s. In addition, Lemmermayer published in the weekly ” Das Goetheanum “.

*  In the evening, before sleep, repurpose your altar. Give an offering to the earth.

We are a bridge
Between what is past
And future existence;
The present is an instant:
Is momentary bridge.
Spirit become soul
In enfolding matter
Is from the past;
Soul becoming spirit
In germinal vessels
Is on the path to the future.
Grasp what is to come
Through what is past;
Have hope of what is growing
Through what has emerged.
And so apprehend
Existence in growing;
And so apprehend
What is growing in what is.
 ~ Given to Ita Wegman at the opening of the clinic in Arlesheim Christmas 1920 by Rudolf Steiner

BARBARA MARIOTTI

The Feast of the Annunciation, also known as Lady Day, the Feast of the Incarnation (Festum Incarnationis), Conceptio Christi (Christ’s Conception), commemorates the visit of the Archangel Gabriel to the Luke Mary holding the energy of the Virgin Sophia, to facilatate the pouring in of the Holy Spirit, so that Mary could concieve the Son of God. Gabriel’s salutation: “Hail, Mary full of grace, the LORD is with thee” (Luke 1:28; gratia plena Dominus tecum), & Mary’s response to God’s will, “be it done to me according to thy word” (Luke 1:38; fiat mihi secundum verbum tuum). The “angelic salutation” is the origin of the Hail Mary prayer & the Angelus; the second part of the prayer comes from the salutation of Saint Elizabeth to Mary at the Visitation.

Rudolf Steiner’s Lectures on this day

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

1801 – Deathday of Novalis. From Rudolf Steiner:  “…Novalis could glance back to a time in which gods moved among men, when everything took place spiritually because spirits and souls had not yet descended into earthly bodies. He perceived a point of transition: how death hit the world and how the human beings during this time placed death as their earthly shadowing and how he tried to brighten it up through fantasy and art. But death remained a riddle.

Then something of universal significance happened. Novalis could perceive the universal meaning of what had happened at that time on earth. Souls from the kingdoms of nature descended to the earth. Forgotten were the memories of their spiritual original existence, yet a unique spiritual Being remained in this universal womb of creation from which everything descended. One Being provisionally held back; it had held itself above and only provisionally sent its gift of grace downward, and then, when human beings needed it the most, it also descend into the earthly sphere. It remained in the spiritual spheres above the being of the spiritual light, this Being was hidden behind the physical sun. It held itself in heavenly spheres and descended when human beings needed to once again be able to rise up to spiritual worlds. It descended with the Mystery of Golgotha when Christ appeared in a physical body.

Humanity understands Christ in His universal unfolding when the life of Jesus of Nazareth is followed back to His spiritual origins, to the unsolvable riddle of death. The Greek spirit of death appears as a pondering muse, as an enigma which cannot be solved. Even the Greeks sensed that the riddle which is hidden in the youth’s soul, found its solution with the Event of Golgotha, that here victory overcomes death and as a result a new impulse is given to humanity.

This Novalis could see and as a result there appeared to him, from the mystery of faith and the mystery wisdom, the Star which the old Magi had followed. As a result he understood the actual essence of what the Christ death implied. In the night of the soul the riddle of death revealed itself to him, the riddle of the Christ. This was it, which this extraordinary individual wanted to learn — through the memory of earlier lives — what the Christ, what the event of Golgotha signified for the world.” Novalis and his “Hymns to the Night” Lecture by Rudolf Steiner in Berlin, “Matinee” 26 October 1908

In ancient times, over the widespread families of men an iron Fate ruled with dumb force. A gloomy oppression swathed their heavy souls — the earth was boundless — the abode of the gods and their home. From eternal ages stood its mysterious structure. Beyond the red hills of the morning, in the sacred bosom of the sea, dwelt the sun, the all-enkindling, living Light. An aged giant upbore the blissful world. Fast beneath mountains lay the first-born sons of mother Earth. Helpless in their destroying fury against the new, glorious race of gods, and their kindred, glad-hearted men. The ocean’s dark green abyss was the lap of a goddess. In crystal grottos revelled a luxuriant folk. Rivers, trees, flowers, and beasts had human wits. Sweeter tasted the wine — poured out by Youth-abundance — a god in the grape-clusters — a loving, motherly goddess upgrew in the full golden sheaves — love’s sacred inebriation was a sweet worship of the fairest of the god-ladies — Life rustled through the centuries like one spring-time, an ever-variegated festival of heaven-children and earth-dwellers. All races childlike adored the ethereal, thousand-fold flame as the one sublimest thing in the world.” ~Novalis

The presence of the world healer is felt – the savior who willed to lift the great evil from the world. His presence is felt. For in truth he is the great physician in the evolution of humankind.


Imagination can lead directly to a way of life here in the earthly realm, a living ritual embracing the spirit which must be cherished & preserved on earth – the health-giving healing forces, & a knowledge of the Ahrimanic & Luciferic forces which could destroy the human organism. For Ahriman hardens human beings, while Lucifer wishes to dissolve & evaporate us through our breathing. In all this resides the forces which make for illness.


Yet under the influence of the Cosmic Physician Raphael, who holds the staff of Mercury, the healing power of the Caduceus is within our reach. A blessing offered through the grace of the living Christ, who stands as the middle pillar within us all. ~Inspired from Rudolf Steiner’s ‘The Breathing Process of the Earth’.

September 2019 Equinox – Balance and Stillness – Meditation | Yin yang art,  Yin yang, Visionary art

Just as light & dark are equal; it is a time when all the elements must be brought into a new harmony. We must birth new beginnings, take action & tend the world garden.

Spring dawns, the portal of death enters the “birth” stage – as we celebrate the emergence from Winter – & turn our face to the Sun.

Spiritual painting – The light from spirit depths strives to ray outwards…  | Kateřina Machytková
Kateřina Machytková

For the spiritual gaze, sunlight is not only material light, it is at the same time the garment of the Logos, as your outer physical body is the garment of your soul …In sunlight, the spiritual flows to the Earth. This is spiritual, if we want to understand not only the body, but also the spirit of the Sun, is love flowing to the Earth. Physical sunlight not only brings to life plants that would die without it, but along with the physical sunlight on the Earth, the warm love of the Divine flows; and the task of people is to perceive the warmth of divine love, to develop it and to answer it with love. But they are capable of this only because they become self-conscious beings – carriers of the Self. Only then can people respond to love with love”. ~Rudolf Steiner. Gospel of John. Hamburg. 1908

Lemniscate

Soul Calendar & Lemniscate – Part II – Syinthesis
Francine Hart

POD (Poem Of the Day)
~I move thru my back space
In a Lemniscate full of flare…
That which is, follows
In stride…
& that which is not yet
Flows in a current
Under my wings,
A song
Shifting at high tide…

~hag

10:10 Testament: Deborah Rogers shared her imgination of pulling the earth in like a ‘string’ that halves the earth like the 2 sections of the brain, pulling it down to the center of the earth where the molten golden core, where the Christ resides – pulling the string until it turns the earth inside out – the core that was inside becomes the New Sun of Shamballa shining out to create new worlds.

These kinds of imgainations speak to our soul when we pay attention. They are the building blocks for change. In the Gospel of Thomas we hear: “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when make the male and the female one and the same – then you will enter the kingdom.” This lives in me as the image of the lemniscate – the figure 8 – symbol of infinity.

Christ, in teaching his disciples about the nature of polarities, spoke about the synthesizing nature of opposites. It is thru the silence that we can find music. It is in the form where we realize the formless. With the in-breath we dance into the out-breath. Thru rest we can delight in action. Pythagoras said, “God geometrizes”. Rudolf Steiner said, “God eurythmeizes”

Freinds – What are the Next steps? – How can we keep the momentum going in the creation of this powerful egregore of the Earth as a sacred Planet & every Human Being a Star…?

The Symbol of Infinity (The Leminiscate) | Download Scientific Diagram

“We are in a time of extremely serious trials.
We must be evermore conscious of this.

Now everything good and everything evil
Is coming to the light of day,
often in a most devastating way.

Whoever is able to meditate
can powerfully affect
what is happening.

Only very few have the possibility of understanding
what is going on, let alone the strength to fulfill
the task given to us.

It is all the more important that the few
who do have a true understanding
now apply all their strength –
in utmost conscientiousness and
with the highest possible concentration
…yes, with all the power
that they are able to call forth
from the depths of their souls –
to offer themselves and work towards this:

That Humanity does not completely lose
the Holy Spirit, which should lead
the future evolution
of Humankind.

Never before have we had to face the abyss
so directly
as in the present.”

~Rudolf Steiner, to an esoteric student 1924 (shared by Marnie Muller & William Rogers)

The Gods of Infinity: The Lemniscate and its Presence in F(a)eri(e) Magick  - Storm Faerywolf: Author • Teacher • Warlock

From Rudolf Steiner: “…nature which causes us to rejoice has within it at the same time the mighty healer for all the damage man can cause himself. Somewhere in nature the remedy is concealed. It is a question, not only of understanding the language of the healer, but also of obeying it and really carrying it out. Today it is in most cases impossible for us to hear the voice of healing nature because of our misunderstanding of light, and the darkness which has penetrated into knowledge has in many respects brought about conditions preventing us from hearing.

Here again we see a remarkable connection which allows us to perceive the whole great world, inclusive of humankind, as One Being. In the sayings: ‘Matter is woven light,’ and ‘the soul is in some way or other diluted love,’ are to be found the keys of innumerable secrets of earth existence. Thus we have shown nothing less than that we, if in any way we alter the direction of karma, unite ourselves in one or the other case with the elements composing our earth existence: on the one side with light which has become matter — and on the other side with love which has become soul. We either draw the remedies out of our surroundings, out of the condensed light, or out of our own soul by the healing loving act, the sacrificial act, and we then heal with the soul-forces obtained from love. We unite ourselves with what is most deeply justified upon the earth, when, on the one hand, we unite ourselves with light and on the other with love. All earth conditions are in some way conditions of balance between light and love and everything unhealthy is a disturbance of that balance. If the disturbance is in love, we can then help by unfolding the forces of love; and if the disturbance is in light, we can then help by somehow providing for ourselves, out of the universe, that light which is able to dissolve the darkness within us.

These are the fundamental ways of help, and we see again how everything depends upon the balance of opposites. Light and love are polar opposites and on their being interwoven depend ultimately all the psychic and material processes of our life.

In this connection I should like to note that just in such times as our own, a characteristic in many people is that they completely forget, and pay no attention to, that which one may call ‘the consciousness of a super-sensible world.’ They pay no attention whatever to the fact that there is a spiritual world, and they therefore turn away their thoughts from it. In such an age — or in all such ages — there is always in certain respects a counterpart to be found. I should like to show you this in a very simple manner.

When there are people upon the physical plane who are so absorbed in the physical that they completely forget the spiritual, then a contrary tendency appears among those souls who are living in the spiritual world between death and a new birth — a tendency which works over from the physical into the spiritual plane — impelling them to occupy themselves with the influences which act out of the spiritual world into the physical. It is this which brings about in the physical world the intervention by souls who are still in that state before birth. These souls work down into the physical world according to the means which offer and they are able to work indirectly through persons who are more sensitive to such influence from the spiritual world.

The dead are anxious show in a palpable manner that there is indeed a spiritual world.

This is intended to illustrate how in the world and in world affairs we see continual disturbances of the balance, and then again the efforts for the restoring of the balance.

This continual disturbance and restoration of the balance between the two elements of light and love is fundamental for us; and in human karma, from incarnation to incarnation, both work to restore the disturbed condition. Karma, working its serpentine way through incarnations is just such a disturbed balance, until man, after all his incarnations, shall at last create the final balance which can be reached upon earth. Having fulfilled his mission on earth, he evolves then into a new planetary form.

I have not shrunk from touching to-day upon those mysteries for which our modern science will not for a long time be ripe: Matter is in reality woven light, and that which belongs to the soul is in some way or other refined love. These are ancient occult sayings, but they are sayings which will for all time remain true and will prove fruitful for human evolution, not only for knowledge, but also for human work and action. ~ Manifestations of Karma, LECTURE 10, FREE WILL AND KARMA IN THE FUTURE OF HUMAN EVOLUTION by Rudolf Steiner

“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, provided by Raphael who is now in the etheric heights, waving a helix of shining vitality. Raphael uses the caduceus as a wand, to mingle air & fire, water & earth, transmuting them into healing forces; working & weaving in the cosmos, & entering into our conscious inspiration of light. Yes this is a goal of our human evolution, to be able to breathe light. Spiritual Science calls it ‘moral breathing’ – to ‘inhale evil & exhale the good’. Could the Corona crisis be calling us to this task? We have a powerful ally to assist us every year at this special time of balance.
