Without discounting the pain of individual karma & illnesses, we can also see that the current world situation is a severe, acute illness of our social organism. The underlying chronic condition has been living in the various organ systems for a long time. We see this all over the world in constant wars, the refugee crisis, immigration, poverty, racism, sexism, class division…
Will we take this opportunity to transform the systems that have failed us?
Does this social illness offer the possibility for social healing, like an individual illness for individual healing?
What are we called to do?
The time has come for the ideals given to us by Rudolf Steiner, just over a 100 years ago, for a 3-fold ordering of the social organism, to manifest. It is the antidote to our social ills. Can we collectively envision: Freedom in the cultural sphere, Equality in the sphere of rights, & Kinship, in the realm of economics? These ideas must be lived into, that we might address the social questions that are arising.
Is this ‘global pandemic’ entreating us to awaken to the etheric realm that we share in common with the earth? Perhaps the coronavirus is an admonition for us to reconnect to the sun-forces now imbued with the Etheric Christ, waiting to be recognized and employed in these current evolving conditions – an invitation for all of humanity to rise to a higher stage of initiation – a Crowning re-birth.
