Mind Trust

Bel Devlin

It’s time to think comprehensively, not defensively . . . To see futuristically, not didactically . . . To fantasize fantastically, not tactlessly. Our assignment is to stop reacting to every little blip that leaps into our field of vision, so we can start surveying the long-term cycles of life from an expansive vista.

How can we be a proactive visionary? – A high-minded explorer – Weaving all the disparate threads into a tapestry that reveals the big picture? The next phase of our true liberation requires us to slough off petty concerns & trivial distractions.

Dark night Painting by Self Expressions
Matthew Pinkster

This world-wide tempest is our friend – Part of the deep, dark abyss – The last place humanity would ever think of visiting, & the most important thing we’ve forgotten that we must do.

So let’s be more willing than usual to marinate in the mysteries – not with logical ferocity but with active curiosity. The areas of life that are most crucial for us to deal with can’t be fully understood using the concepts the rational mind favors. The Heart-thinking that will be most useful to explore, rises above the enslaved thoughts we are habitually familiar with.

As Albert Einstein said: ‘We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.’

With this goal in mind, Come join us on Election Night to create a Think Tank – a Mind Trust – a Brainstorming Focus-Group, to practice The Art of Goethean Conversation – envisioning a strategy  for a new 3-folding of Society.

Inner Fire by Rob Colvin
Rob Colvin

Calendar of the Soul by Rudolf Steiner, Translation by Roy Sadler

v29,
To have the inner fire
to kindle thinking’s radiance
and draw the meaning of experience
from worldwide spirit’s well of power
is now for me the summer’s heritage,
is autumn’s peace, and also winter’s hope.

When we look up to the wonder of the starry world, when we contemplate the whole process of the universe with its glories and marvels, then we are led at last to the feeling that all the glory that lies open to our view in the whole universe that surrounds us only has meaning when it is reflected in an admiring human soul”. ~Goethe

Rudolf Steiner’s Lectures on this day

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

luke-the-evangelist-18-300x246

Feast Day of Luke the Evangelist. The early church fathers ascribed to him authorship of both the Gospel according to Luke & the book of Acts of the Apostles. The New Testament mentions Luke a few times, & the Pauline epistle to the Colossians refers to him as a Greek doctor; so he is thought to have been both a physician & a disciple of Paul. He is believed to have been a martyred, hung in an olive tree.

The Roman Catholic Church & other major denominations venerate him as Saint Luke the Evangelist & as a patron saint of artists, (He was the first icon painter. He painted pictures of the Virgin Mary & Child) physicians, surgeons, students & butchers.

Rudolf Steiner’s lectures on The Gospel of St. Luke, provides the solution to the riddle of the contradictions in the accounts of the genealogy & childhood of Jesus in Matthew & Luke when he unveils for the first time the secret of the two Jesus children. He also describes the workings of Zarathustra, the relation between the Buddha & Jesus child, & more

Sign in | Canadian history, The famous five, Women in history

1929 – The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council overrules the Supreme Court of Canada in Edwards v. Canada when it declares that women are considered “Persons” under Canadian law. The case, put forward by the Government of Canada on the lobbying of a group of women known as the Famous Five, began as a reference case which ruled that women were not “qualified persons” & thus ineligible to sit in the Senate. The Persons Case was a landmark, 1st it established that Canadian women were eligible to be appointed senators. Second, it established what came to be known as the “living tree doctrine“, that says that a constitution is organic & must be read in a broad & liberal manner so as to adapt it to changing times

6 thoughts on “Mind Trust

  1. Hi Hazel,

    I want to throw some words at you, and they are your own words, and very well considered. Then, I am going to offer a paragraph from Steiner, and I hope that the resolution can be found for your daunting, and yet, encouraging thoughts out of “The Mind Trust”.

    “It’s time to think comprehensively, not defensively . . . To see futuristically, not didactically . . . To fantasize fantastically, not tactlessly. Our assignment is to stop reacting to every little blip that leaps into our field of vision, so we can start surveying the long-term cycles of life from an expansive vista. If we listen – Important messages will come on the Wind. Attune to the language of the breeze – Communicate with the bustling birds – Align with the Sylphs -Throw caution to the wind – Be aroused & alert -Watch banners blow – Feel the stir, the sound it makes – Like Thunder in the Night- The voices it awakens – Calling us to sing into the sky – & we will be heard…
    How can we be a proactive visionary? – A high-minded explorer – Weaving all the disparate threads into a tapestry that reveals the big picture? The next phase of our true liberation requires us to slough off petty concerns & trivial distractions. This world-wide tempest is our friend – Part of the deep, dark abyss – The last place humanity would ever think of visiting, & the most important thing we’ve forgotten that we must do.
    So let’s be more willing than usual to marinate in the mysteries – not with logical ferocity but with active curiosity. The areas of life that are most crucial for us to deal with can’t be fully understood using the concepts the rational mind favors. The Heart-thinking that will be most useful to explore, rises above the enslaved thoughts we are habitually familiar with.”

    Good stuff, huh? Yours to behold. Now, here is what Rudolf Steiner said, and I think he can be likened to being the bond slave of Isis in our time. He says at the outset of the fourth lecture of GA 180:

    “What impulses of human life must enter especially into the consciousness of man today so that a counterweight may be created to the principle of heredity that prevails almost exclusively — whether in science or in general life? This extraordinarily important question, however, can only be approached slowly and gradually. It is, in fact, most deeply connected with the contrast that I wished to bring before your spiritual eyes in showing how one can look towards the old Egyptian inscription of Isis: ‘I am the All. I am the Past, the Present, the Future; no mortal has yet lifted my veil’ — and how on the other hand one can take into one’s consciousness the words which from the present on into the future must be the complementary saying: ‘I am Man. I am the Past, I am the Present, I am the Future. Every mortal should lift my veil.’

    He then goes on to explain why anthroposophical spiritual science exists in the world here in the early stages of the Consciousness Soul Age. He would give 25 years to it in the first quarter of the 20th century, and they are still numbering the volumes of the New Isis Wisdom.

    1. Thank you for reflecting back to me! I often write something & then forget it, not a good trait. I am working on holding inspiration &moving it consciously into manifestation.

      I’m not sure what you mean with this line: ‘Now, here is what Rudolf Steiner said, and I think he can be likened to being the bond slave of Isis in our time’. Specifically, what does ‘bond slave of Isis in our time’ mean?

      The Steiner quote is profound & something I am ever striving to live into, this idea of a counterweight.

      Perhaps a 100 years ago he need to approach it slowly, since the spiritual world was just open its gates after a pralaya. But the times we are in now are a trumpet call to action, perhaps quicker than was expected.

      How can the human being recognize & live into “I AM THE ALL” without false egotism, becoming truly human in the sense that we are all one in Christ. This is the veil we must lift

      1. Bond servant would be better understood. I was thinking of where this was said of John. “1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, 2 who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. 3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.”

        Rudolf Steiner indicated that the materialism of the nineteenth century would eventually lead to the decision to make the previously secret rosicrucian wisdom a matter of public dissemination beginning at the outset of the twentieth century. This was to be his mission, and how the veil of Isis would begin to be lifted. Steiner as emissary (bond-servant) of Michael/Christ/Isis.

        1. bond-servant = Friend, bound by karma
          like you were saying – the way RS greeted the public = Ladies & Gentlemen, members = Friends, Esoteric school = Brothers & sisters…
          Can we be a friend to JC, a friend of god, can we be brothers to each other…Can we become the body of Anthroposophia…

          1. You are in the light-bulb questioning mood, and this is the mode that every conversation should take as we nurture the anthroposophical virtues. These virtues allow the relaxation of high anticipation, and the harmony of feelings needed to feel confident among friends. This is why and how it became possible for Rudolf Steiner to reveal intimate details of his cause and purpose over time.

            You pointed out something of great significance here, and it must be coming from inspiration. You said:

            “Perhaps a 100 years ago he needed to approach it slowly, since the spiritual world was just opening its gates after a pralaya. But the times we are in now are a trumpet call to action, perhaps quicker than was expected.”

            This is, indeed, so. I am reading the so-called “Priest Course-Apocalypse”, his last lecture course, and he is telling the priests quite specifically that the 6th trumpet has sounded in 1924, and the seventh will sound at the end of the twentieth century. Then, he goes into how the Woes will come into effect. He is alerting the priests that matters have accelerated in their coming about, and how they should make a fourth mystery epoch of our time as their own fulfillment. Sadly, he died before he could give them any further assistance on this objective.

            But, here we are in 2020, and the pox is upon us. Third evolutionary surge of Sorath, c. 1998, combined with the Third Millennium of Christ. Steiner called it, “The Renewed Abraham Epoch”, wherein clairvoyance will be renewed in an exact form because of the sacrifice to thinking. This is the thinking that must meet the standards of Spiritual Science. It is why this knowledge exists to simply be taken in on a conceptual level.

            Then, watch the fireworks begin; Imagination, Inspiration, Intuition. We blow the present dualistic world-view to smithereens!

          2. “as Jimmy Hedrick’s said: “Fall mountain, just don’t fall on me”
            And then what shall we build…?
