Listen to the ‘IThink Speech’ podcast
Schiller once said “Take the divine into your will & it descends from its cosmic throne.”
When people are united in higher wisdom, when communities arise, not thru necessity or heredity, but through free will, a group-soul descends from the spiritual worlds.
And human hearts, once warmed, can rise up to meet the Source of Wisdom, like flowers turning toward the Sun.
Where separate egos are united by a common Truth, the Christ imbued Spirit can descend.
If, today, together we Will to turn our hearts towards a higher wisdom, to set fire to the forces of Anthroposophia in our souls, redeeming our intelligence, the Holy Spirit, can anchor & embody itself in us – turning the ‘Me’ into the ‘We’- Blessing the world.
For this to happen, we need to let go of judgment. – When we let go of opinion, we can find truth. And then we can let the ground of our souls become warm.
With focused will we can let the:
Warm our Hearts
& Enlighten our Heads’
‘That Good May Become’.
So let’s apply some spiritual science eh? Heat rises right? & so it is with our inner being. When we warm our hearts, then the spirit responds – The light-flame from above, answers, to the warmth-flame from below.
& how do we do this? – By celebrating the festivals of course.
Blessings to all as we come together for WHITSUN – THE FESTIVAL OF THE FREE INDIVIDUAL AND COMMUNITY

RUDOLF STEINER’S CALENDAR OF THE SOUL
translated (with added titles) by Roy Sadler
In concert with the gods’ creating
the senses’ power grows;
it presses thinking down
to dimness of a dream.
When bonding with my soul
would be a holy being
my thinking must be stilled,
in quiet dreamlike presence satisfied.

23 May 2021 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Find Spica to the right of Bella Luna
1498 –Girolamo Savonarola is burned at the stake in Florence, Italy. Savonarola was an Italian Dominican friar. He was known for his prophecies & his calls for Christian renewal. He denounced clerical corruption, despotic rule & the exploitation of the poor. The Florentines expelled the ruling Medici &, at the friar’s urging, established a “popular” republic. Declaring that Florence would be the New Jerusalem, the world center of Christianity & “richer, more powerful, more glorious than ever”, enlisting the active help of Florentine youth.
In 1495 when Florence refused to join Pope Alexander VI’s Holy League against the French, the Vatican summoned Savonarola to Rome. He disobeyed & defied the pope by preaching under a ban, highlighting his campaign for reform with processions, bonfires & pious theatricals. In retaliation, the Pope excommunicated him.
A trial by fire proposed by a rival Florentine preacher to test Savonarola’s divine mandate turned into a fiasco. On May 23, 1498, they condemned, hanged, & burned him in the main square of Florence.
1934 – The American bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde are ambushed by police and killed in Bienville Parish, Louisiana.
1945 – World War II: Heinrich Himmler, the head of the Schutzstaffel, commits suicide while in Allied custody.
