10:10 Testament – The Thought-Seed Project: It’s been awhile since we checked in around our ‘Egregore’ – our collective ‘Thought-Form’ of Good Will – our “key-call” to the powers on the Inner Planes, to enlist their aid.
Through our continued intention to visualize the human being as a star & the Earth as a Sun*, our positive egregore grows between the material & spiritual worlds & is connected to both.
At the re-founding of the Anthroposophical Society, Rudolf Steiner connected not only his own karma, but ‘the Movement’ – i.e. The Spiritual Beings working behind the impulse of Anthroposophia – with the Society & its members. This impulse extends beyond the usual limits of space/time, connecting the eternal with the temporal. Our goal is to co-create a new ‘Group-Soul United in Christ’ thru our daily 10:10 meditation.
Here is the Meditative Thought-Seed I have been working with:
*For Thinking: “When I think light, my soul shines,
When my soul shines, the earth is a star,
When the earth is a star, then I am, a true human being”.
For Feeling: When I feel warmth, my heart sings
When my heart sings, the Earth resounds
When the Earth resounds, I am a true I AM
For Willing: When I will life, my hands help
When my hands help, the Earth heals
When the Earth heals, I am a free human being
~ Mary Lynn Channer & hag
Here’s a Steiner quote that supports our work:
“Had the Event of Golgotha not occurred, the earth and the sun would never be able to reunite. For through the Event of Golgotha, which bound the force of the Elohim in the sun to the earth — in other words the force of the Logos — the impulse was given which will again eventually impel one Logos-force toward the other, and finally once more unite them — sun and earth — in one body. Since the Event of Golgotha, the earth, spiritually observed, is possessed of the force to draw the sun again into a unity with it.
Therefore it can be said that through this great Event, the force of the Logos, which formerly radiated down upon the earth from without, was now taken up into its spiritual being.
The question may be asked, what existed previously within the body of the earth? It was that force which streamed down upon it from the sun. But since that time, what exists there within the earth? – The Logos itself which through Golgotha has become the spirit of the earth. As truly as your soul and spirit dwell within your physical body, do also the soul and spirit of the earth dwell within the body of the earth. This soul and spirit, this earth spirit is the Christ.” ~ The Gospel of St. John, Lecture 7 –THE MYSTERY OF GOLGOTHA

“In heavy clouds let Him ascend
And so also let Him downward tread.
In cooling streams let Him be sent,
In flames of fire blaze His descent,
In air & essence, sound & dew
To permeate our whole earth thru” ~Novalis
Ascension is a Festival of the Elements, & of the Hierarchies, it relates to the Transfiguration & the fulfillment of the promise of the ‘Second Coming’. Together we will explore the mystery of ‘As Above so Below’.

A Whitsun Festival of United Soul Endeavor & Spirit Community
with the Eastern, Central and Western Regional Councils of the Anthroposophical Society in America
Sunday 29 May 2022 – 3 – 4:30 pm PT, 4-5:30 MT, 5-6:30 pm CT, 6-7:30 pm ET
We will be working with Rudolf Steiner’s THE FIFTH GOSPEL GA 148, Lecture II, 2 October 1913, Oslo
The Whitsun Festival highlights one of the greatest challenges of being human: placing our individual gifts, our individual “I”, in right relationship within the social realm. This challenge is strongly felt during this time of the consciousness soul age. Our groups striving to know Spiritual Science must work together as a community, to have the possibility to create this type of culture, and the opportunity is here for each of us to meet, human to human, where a sacrament is possible in every encounter. Our individual strength comes from our personal development and is enhanced by weaving our gifts together with others, knitting our social world in conscious community.

Mysteries of the Holy Grail – from Arthur and Parzival to Modern Initiation
June 1, 2022 – 7:15 pm Central (8:15 pm Eastern)
“Anyone who approaches these mysteries today must feel that they are confronting and challenging themselves by striving for the virtues of Parzival, while knowing that — because of modern conditions — they are in fact someone else also, the wounded Amfortas. Today we bear this divided nature within us: aspiring Parzival, wounded Amfortas. That is what self-knowledge must lead us to feel. From this recognition will flow the forces which make a unity again of this duality, and will thus advance us a little further in world evolution.”~ from Chapter 15, Rudolf Steiner, The Mysteries of the Holy Grail, Chapter 15 “Acknowledging Amfortas,” excerpts from Steiner’s lecture given at Berlin on 7 February 1913 (GA 144, lecture IV), will be the focus of the June 1 meeting.

|The Central Regional Council of the Anthroposophical Society in America invites you to join our ongoing study conversation. The study has been divided among two volunteers who will summarize their section to rebuild it as a foundation for our conversation. Please familiarize yourself with the lecture if possible so you will feel comfortable sharing your reflections and thoughts with the group.|
This collection of lectures has been republished by Rudolf Steiner Press under the title: “The Mysteries of the Holy Grail — from Arthur and Parzival to Modern Initiation.” The book was compiled and edited by Matthew Barton, published by Rudolf Steiner Press in 2010.
This will be a “Zoom” conference call allowing us an opportunity to see one another while conversing (or audio only if you prefer). To connect to the audio/video-conference:

There is a knighthood of the 21st century
whose riders do not ride through the darkness
of physical forests as of old,
but through the forest of darkened minds.
They are armed with a spiritual armor
and an inner sun makes them radiant.
Out of them shines healing,
healing that flows from the knowledge
of the human being as a spiritual being.
They must create inner order, inner justice,
peace and conviction in the darkness
of our time. ~Karl Konig

4 thoughts on “Shiny New Penny”
It is good to invoke the 10:10 thought seed as an active experiment, and I like the idea of calling it that. We all should experiment with our own creative impulses. I have a knack for looking for a lucky penny on the ground, and most of them are dull, but I shine when I put it in my pocket.
It has been awhile since we actively here thought about the 10:10, which is an ongoing process. Yet, it is always working, even though we don’t specifically acknowledge it. In fact, every moment it is occurring. We know because people speak their minds on the various issues.
I often think about something I gave you as a kind of prototype of what could have been the seminal germ of the 10:10. Do you remember it? Well, here it is. In Rudolf Steiner’s final lecture in GA 237, he reveals what really took place that caused the separation of the planetary intelligences, led by Oriphiel, against the Sun, led by Michael. This is what Steiner most wants to clarify here. The split in the Cosmic Intelligence.
That is why in volume four of KR, Steiner speaks of a Supersensible Council of 869. This council was attended by many important figures, including Aristotle and Alexander. Yet, the most important figure was Michael Himself, who divided the general collective consciousness from before, into the personal and individual consciousness, which Steiner has most glorified in his work. It is we humans that need to keep it going, and not become androids 🙂
I have actually been going back to what the Association for Anthroposophic Psychology calls the ‘Primal wound’ when some of the Cherubim would not receive the sacrifice of the Thrones – The repercussions of this rejection then brought in Time etc…
I have been working hard behind the scenes to get the ASA to work with the Karmic Relationship Lectures to deal with the issue you point out…
We finally started with 1 July 1924 in GA 257 last week! May it bear good fruit
My feeling is that whatever the Cherubim might have resisted in receiving the sacrifice of the Thrones was necessary precisely for the impetus of Time, which cannot be denied as an evolutionary impulse. I don’t know what this Association For Anthroposophic Psychology espouses, but it seems very interesting.
With regard to GA 237, the first lecture of 1 July 1924 is important because it reflects upon Aristotle, and how he knew of the Pure Thought World, or Sublunary World between Earth and Moon. He even taught Alexander about it when they came together again when Alexander was thirteen years of age, and needing to receive a specific education in order to eventually become the King of Macedonia. Alexander remembers how it was in being taught by Aristotle. First, he remembers how his head was dunked into a bucket of ice water, and then put into a vice wherein the bones of his skull were pressed together! This is a very important analogy.
It also begins the trace of Volume III, which is the Karma of the Anthroposophical Movement. Naturally, Volume IV is the carry on, and even more revealing.
Yes, these lectures reveal so many layers
