Manifest Destiny

Remedios Varo

Beloved Being – Life is a Loom…& we are the weavers of this fabric we call Reality…Our bodies: a bone spindle, shuttling bobbin Souls…Our fibers interlacing, Spinning straw into gold…& yes sometimes a strand of sorrow is added to the weft…These dark threads are just as needed in a weavers skillful hand as the threads of gold & silver in our patterns spun in sand…& now as the fire of life goes inward, & rest lies upon the patient land…Our Craft is the Art of Transforming the patchwork shadow, the wounded ancestor, the demure descendant, every loose fiber, Into a fabric of healed wholeness & Peace…May our transformation be ever-full of grace.

Today’s 10:10 Testament: Our weather has been unseasonable warm so I have been going outside in the Sun. I lay on the earth. I ground myself. I think light. I feel my soul shining, & picture all of you shining with me so that we make the Earth glow.

Today this glow was shimmering with a powerful Christic essence. Activating the heart center & the Divine Codes within our DNA, resonant with harmonious frequencies, rising All, into a circle of golden Light. The Michael Shield manifests. And the sword of truth breaks the bonds that have kept souls unfree. Here the fear programs can no longer take hold. And the Being of Anthroposophia can become activated within us.

Please Feel Free – to Share – Your Experiences!

Mistress of Manifest Destiny

The Calendar Of The Soul, by Rudolf Steiner
translated by Roy Sadler in the English West Midlands.

For you dear folks in the United States now, it’s the Destiny verse this week,
v32,
I feel my own fruit-bearing power
present me to the world,
and strengthen my innate intent
to turn towards the clarity
within life’s web of destiny.

This is the last Autumn verse before next week’s transition towards Winter.
It’s mirror at the end of August was the Soul Calendar’s first Autumn verse:
before Michaelmas inspired the soul this was in the realm of imagination,
v21,
I feel a strange new strengthening,
fruit-bearing power maturing
with seed of who I am,
and on a starlit loom in me
a dawning vision weaving
my pathway to my real being.

The opposite verse in the Southern Hemisphere now is the Ascension verse,
the senses uniting with the spirit,
v6,
Arisen from my own persona
my real self appears
as revelation of the spheres
the world is showing me in powers
of time and space as paradigm
that is divine and everywhere portrays
the image in whose mirror I come true.

The complementary verse, the opposite’s mirror in the 2nd week of Lent,
is an intuitive focus on the new spring world,
v47,
From worldwide womb will rise
growth’s joy, enlivening the senses’ glory.
Now may it find my strength of thought
defended by the strength of God,
the living bedrock of my being.

POD (Poem Of the Day)

~Now I seize
Darkness by its arms & shake it…
The souls of ancient swallowed women fall out
From the belly of obscurity…
The old She, the few, the many, the forgotten
Walk back into being
With me

Manifestations of Karma Study Group
December 2, 2020 – 7:15 pm Central (8:15 pm Eastern)

… We have now learned that it is possible to seek out accidents or other causes of illness due to karmic effects. In due course we will deal with the details of such processes, such as the way in which the forces in deeper levels of consciousness work within the human being, or to what extent our ordinary consciousness may avoid such accidents. We can understand that someone who goes to a place  where he may succumb to an infection will have been driven there under the influence of a certain level of consciousness; in like manner we must be able to understand how it is that human beings take certain measures to render such infections less and less effective; in other words, that through our ordinary consciousness we are able to avert certain consequences by means of hygiene.

~Rudolf Steiner, Manifestations of KarmaChapter 6Karma in Relation to Accidents”, Hamburg, 21 May, 1910 … focus of the December 2 meeting.

The lecture can be found online at the RS Archive (eLib) by clicking this link: https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA120/English/RSP1984/19100521p01.html

This collection of lectures has been republished by Rudolf Steiner Press under the title: “Manifestations of Karma.”  This book is a translation from German of Die Offenbarung des Karma (Ga 120), published in English by Rudolf Steiner Press in 1996.

2 thoughts on “Manifest Destiny

  1. Hi Hazel,

    Someone wrote me and asked, “What does 10/10 Testament mean”? I said that all I knew was something about ’12/12′, and how it seemed to relate to the concept of Alpha and Omega. Of course, you have since explained how scheduling difficulties prevented 12/12 from being invoked, although I felt it was perfect, which I will try to explain.

    But first, I think this presentation on “Connections Revealed” is awesome to behold, and it came in close synchronous conjunction with the Goetheanum Newsletter sent with its various videos and statements for November 2020. So, I saw an appeal coming from the folks in Dornach, and responded in kind even before beginning to watch your own presentation.

    Now, for me, what carries over as a theme from the last few days, is the whole concept and function of Alpha and Omega. The Book of Revelation cites its importance from the very beginning of the discourse based on the mysterious ‘Apocalyptizer’, who is generally regarded to be Saint John of Patmos, who by now is an old man reviewing his life as an act of initiation.

    So, I found this reference from the Gospel of John to be seemingly important, as it concerns what it means to know when one’s time is up, and how the herald of a new age must pass over and begin, while what stood before must recede.

    John the Baptist’s Last Testimony

    22 After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea; and there He was spending time with them and baptizing. 23 Now John also was baptizing in Aenon, near Salim, because there was an abundance of water there; and people were coming and being baptized— 24 for John had not yet been thrown into prison.

    25 Then a matter of dispute developed on the part of John’s disciples with a Jew about purification. 26 And they came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified—behold, He is baptizing and all the people are coming to Him.” 27 John replied, “A person can receive not even one thing unless it has been given to him from heaven. 28 You yourselves are my witnesses that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent ahead of Him.’ 29 He who has the bride is the groom; but the friend of the groom, who stands and listens to him, rejoices greatly because of the groom’s voice. So this joy of mine has been made full. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

    31 “He who comes from above is above all; the one who is only from the earth is of the earth and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all. 32 What He has seen and heard, of this He testifies; and no one accepts His testimony. 33 The one who has accepted His testimony has certified that God is true. 34 For He whom God sent speaks the words of God; for He does not give the Spirit sparingly. 35 The Father loves the Son and has entrusted all things to His hand. 36 The one who believes in the Son has eternal life; but the one who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.” John 3: 22-36

    1. The 1010 testament is a way of dialoguing about the daily experiences one receives while doing the Thought-Experiment.
      May we be witness to each other in this co-creation
