Greetings friends – All my current essay’s are now being posted on Substack. I hope to see you there…xox


Whenever I reach a Turning Point in my life-stream – I step in. Bringing ‘Biography Work’ into this Conscious Threshold experience shows the flow from the past swirling into the now – conveying clarity into connectivity. And from the analysis of the rhythmic tides, the glacial overview emerges. Slow-motion waves cresting & ebbing, spilling & pooling – exposing a new perception of the undercurrents.

O look – the future flux is rising up in the Wellsprings of my Soul – becoming a welcoming ocean of possibility.

I think about my deep immersion in:

1) The 1st Class of the Michael School of Spiritual Science – working in me to transform my astral body into Spirit-Self.

2) The Consecration of my humanness as I serve at the altar of the Christian Community – opening me to my Higher “I” & the New-Group-Soul in Christ.

3) My daily meditative rhythm as a dedicated member of the Esoteric Kries – to create a New kind of Social-Working imprinting the inner planes with spiritual imaginative impulses.

Bringing these 3 aspects together in my life has led me to the revelation – the duty – to take what was given to us in the Ancient Mysteries – renewed & transmitted 100 years ago by the great Initiate Rudolf Steiner – further – into the New Rosicrucian Mysteries of the 2nd Class of the Free High School for Spiritual Science – this working transforms etheric body into Life-Spirit.

This is the task at hand for humanity – to consciously meet the Being of Christ in the Etheric.

The Misraim Dienst=Service, gives us a modern ritual-working that reveals & galvanizes the revelations that flowed out of the imaginations of the Supersensible School of Michael at the end of the 18th & 19th Centuries. Activating the Reverse Cultus now, but this time – here on earth.

Hella Wiesberger reports that in a letter Marie Steiner von Sivers mentions: In Class II much of what he had given us in the Mystica Aeterna (the esoteric group working with the cognitive rituals of the Memphis-Misraim Service) would flow into it imaginatively.

And that in Class III this would have been transformed into moral strength.”

The adversarial powers working thru the Jesuits of the Roman Church & the Dark Occult Brotherhoods saw the power of this combination of 1st Class, Christian Community & the Misraim Dienst. Their Jealousy burnt down the 1st Goetheanum & shortened the life of Rudolf Steiner.

That reside lingers & has infected many with unconscious fear, disallowing the right relationships to unfold, & fostering an unwillingness to take Spiritual Science into the New Mysteries.

But friends, as we stand now at the Centennial of the Re-founding of Anthroposophy, we cannot let the destruction of the adversarial beings, or the mistakes of past, keep us from moving forward. We must bring the Imaginations, fired up in the Michael School & thru the burning, down from the ethers into the actions of a New Mystica Aeterna in America.  

Let us keep looking Above & Below the surface – Into the Heights & Depths, the Center & the Periphery, with open-mindedness, in the endeavoring to Know ThySelf…

1893 – Deathday of Lucy Stone, a prominent American orator, abolitionist, & suffragist, & a vocal advocate & organizer promoting rights for women. In 1847, Stone became the first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree. She spoke out for women’s rights & against slavery at a time when women were discouraged & prevented from public speaking. Stone was known for using her maiden name after marriage.

Stone’s organizational activities for the cause of women’s rights yielded tangible gains in the difficult political environment of the 19th century. Stone helped initiate the first National Women’s Rights Convention in Worcester, Massachusetts & she supported & sustained it annually, along with a number of other local, state & regional activist conventions. She assisted in establishing the Woman’s National Loyal League to help pass the Thirteenth Amendment & thereby abolish slavery, after which she helped form the American Woman Suffrage Association AWSA, which built support for a woman suffrage Constitutional amendment by winning woman suffrage at the state & local levels.

In the long-running & influential Woman’s Journal, a weekly periodical that she founded & promoted, Stone aired both her own & differing views about women’s rights. Called “the orator”, the “morning star” & the “heart & soul” of the women’s rights movement, Stone influenced Susan B. Anthony to take up the cause of women’s suffrage. Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote that “Lucy Stone was the first person by whom the heart of the American public was deeply stirred on the woman question.

1897 – Deathday of George Pullman, an American engineer & industrialist. He designed & manufactured the Pullman sleeping car & founded a enslaving ‘company town’ for the workers who manufactured it.

During an 1894 downturn in manufacturing demand, he lowered wages & required workers to spend longer hours at the plant, but did not lower prices of rents & goods in his company town. He gained presidential support by Grover Cleveland for the use of federal military troops which left 30 strikers dead in the violent suppression of workers there to end the Pullman Strike of 1894. A national commission was appointed to investigate the strike, which included assessment of operations of the company town. In 1898 the Supreme Court of Illinois ordered the Pullman Company to divest itself of the town which became a neighborhood of the city of Chicago

Writing in Vernacular Chinese as well as Classical Chinese, Lu Xun was a short story writer, editor, translator, literary critic, essayist, & poet. After the May Fourth Movement, Lu Xun’s writing began to exert a substantial influence on Chinese literature & popular culture. Though sympathetic to socialist ideas, Lu Xun never joined the Communist Party of China

1937 – Deathday of Ernest Rutherford, a New Zealand physicist & Nobel Prize laureate, who came to be known as the father of nuclear physics. Encyclopædia Britannica considers him to be the greatest experimentalist since Michael Faraday

  1. Now let’s look at the numbers, dates and synchronicities involved with how you transformed my life — yes, you dear Hazel, whose new esoteric title I will bestow upon you at the end of this comment.

    So, I discovered your blog here on August 23, 2023 and made my very first comment later that evening.


    The next day, August 24, celebrated the one year anniversary of the Charter granted by the Swedish Misraim Alliance for the MMA.

    Let me put the dates in numbers one above the other. I leave the pattern-making to others.

    8/24/22 – MMA Charter granted
    8/23/23 – Tom’s 1st comment on RR

    Then on Goethe’s Birthday August 28, 2023 we had a wonderful hour long phone conversation. When it ended, the time popped up on my iPhone. It was 11:11 AM in Los Angeles. It was 1:11 PM for you in Chicago.

    Now 11:11 synchronicities are a “dime a dozen” — unless their context augurs a profound life transformation. And that’s what I felt when I saw it. I emailed you saying it was a wonderful capstone to our conversation — like the original golden capstone on the dazzling white limestone of the Great Pyramid at Giza.

    And now that 11:11 of almost 2 months ago has been fulfilled by my discovery today, October 20, of the 11 x 11 = 121 years since Steiner headed the TS in Germany.

    Thus do I look back over that time span of 53 days and marvel at the direction and soul-spiritual metamorphosis I’ve undergone and I must give you great thanks for being there and being you.

    The book that introduced me to Rudolf Steiner in this incarnation was _The Spear of Destiny_ by Trevor Ravenscroft which I read in 1976 in Houston, Texas at the age of 27. His last name means “power of the raven.” Thus I began my spiritual path as a Raven.

    But now I have encountered you on my path after 47 years and I hereby confer on you the initiatory title of:

    Maven of American Anthroposophy.

    1. We are all part of an interweaving tapestry. If we look closely we can find the threads. But often we only see the knots & miss the warp & woof where our secret names are written

  2. Wonderful life-transformation, Hazel! And you announce it today while commemorating the anniversary of this event:

    1902 – Founding of the German Section of the Theosophical Society in Berlin with Rudolf Steiner as the General Secretary

    That’s 121 years ago today. What is so special about this number?

    121 is the square of 11

    Thus 11 x 11
