Greetings Friends – Here are a few thoughts that I probably won’t get to in my Pentecost presentation on Saturday so I thought to share them today:
In our time now, the Being of Anthroposophia working as the youngest member of the Divine Sophia, is guiding us on the path that leads to the true activity of thinking, feeling & willing, out of which arises the possibility of free human action, in anticipation of the age of the Spirit-Self.
Also Leading humanity in our journey thru the modern path of initiation, made available to humanity thru the work of 2 exalted servants of the Divine Sophia: Christian Rosenkreutz & Rudolf Steiner.
Steiner once characterized their relationship thru this supersensible picture:
We are asked to see ourselves in front of an altar in the spiritual world- on the left stands Christian Rosenkreutz in a blue stola – on the right, Rudolf Steiner in a red stola. Between them is Michael; & above our mighty Time Spirit, is the Being of Love, the Christos, holding the center between the eye of god the Father & the dove of wisdom – the Holy Sophia, flowing down to us thru the teachings of these great Christian Initiates. Available to those who gather at the altar, ready & willing to take up the indications offered & put them into action in the world.
Friends, we can remember: Red & blue are the colors of Mary-Sophia. Many great artists depict the Virgin Sophia in a cloak of red & blue.
This is also the pictorial reality seen in the 2 Columns of the Rosicrucian Temple – Joachim & Boaz.
This spiritual imagination points to our present, & future task: to cultivate the Etherization of our blood – What does that mean? How do we spiritualize the substance of our blood? – Thru the practice of heart-thinking – which is a result of the mystic marriage of: thinking (blue) & feeling (red) – a transformation of the physical blood into a higher vibration, where the formative forces can spiritualize the life force of our blood…
This Wedding is initiated thru the warmth of the Holy Spirit.
When the light of wisdom & revelation is able to fully penetrate the astral body of the human being, we reach the stage of Spirit-Self – where we can consciously act from our Higher ‘I’.
This is also the goal of the Rose Cross meditation – the cultivation of the Philosophers Stone – topic for another session.
For human beings to experience this we must purify our astral body–thru selfless renunciation which cultivates a higher desire, to serve with love.
And what’s so interesting – when we practice this – it will have a direct effect, not only in us as individual human beings, but it will light up the sphere of the Angels too; & then it has a ripple effect on up thru all the hierarchies –& also down into the elemental realms.
Lucifer who lost his connection to the Holy Spirit when he willed to rise before the time was ripe, becoming a tough-love-tool for the higher gods in our evolution, will, thru our human intervention as Anthroposophia, be able to regain this re-connection to the Healing Spirit working from the godhead – which will lead to the full redemption of Lucifer. It has already begun…
See you in the ethers

6 thoughts on “Thru the Blood”
I am reminded of this Fourth Occult Seal Picture, which you have nestled in your collage which depicts the blue and red stolas. I had previously thought these two streams were reversed, but maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me. No matter, because the essence is given here with the pillars of Jachim and Boaz, which has a story to tell, which has biblical implications, and yet, in the purest sense, Rudolf Steiner describes the meaningful significance of this picture, which in truth, corresponds the fourth seal to the fourth sphere, which is ours to bring to fruition as the human beings evolving now.
“Our earth evolution depends upon two things. Our earth was preceded by what we call the Cosmos of Wisdom, and that was preceded by what we call the Cosmos of Strength, of Power (certainly the word does not convey much, but we must use it because it has become customary). Wisdom and strength have been received as a heritage from previous stages of evolution, from the ancient Moon and the ancient Sun. We shall see that during our earth evolution this is also expressed by our naming the first half after the representative of the Sun forces, Mars, for we only need note at this point that within our earth evolution we have in Mars that which implanted iron in the earth; in Mars we see the bringer of strength. And in that which rules the second half of the earth evolution we have the representative of the ancient Moon evolution, Mercury, which embodies in the earth the heritage received from the Moon, wisdom. Thus the earth evolution consists of two parts, Mars and Mercury. It has received as a heritage two mighty forces. That which it has inherited from the cosmos of strength is expressed in Mars, and that which it has inherited from the cosmos of wisdom is expressed in Mercury. The mission of the earth itself is to bring love. Love is to be gloriously manifested as the result of the earth evolution. This is a very profound thought expressed by the writer of the Apocalypse. It is the profound thought underlying the whole of the earth evolution.” GA 104, lecture 8
When working with the Rosicrucian Western Mystery stream – which BTW: is about engaging the will – We step into such a supersensible picture so that the glyph is in our own body – this reversal is important if we are to live into the spiritual worlds
I’m sorry I can’t make it to your Pentecost offering: I’ll be officiating at an ACM for the Dead in Edmonton . . .
So important to serve the dead…
It seems you’re onto something good there with thoughts on the etherization of the blood, and the significance of red and blue. Steiner seems to have used those colors a lot in his blackboard drawings. Both are necessary in relation to the blood – blue for blood that needs to be recycled, and red for blood that is full of the life ethers, the ego. Of course, by that I’m referring to the higher ego. One of the best practices I’ve found for etherizing the blood is the simple act of remembering Christ Jesus as he requested we do, in the bread and wine. Since I’m in a rural location, the opportunities for attending the Act of Consecration are few, but Christ still honors and appreciates being remembered on a daily basis. John 14:23 “Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.”
I differ from you on a couple of things you mention. What excites me about Anthroposophia is the many branches that’ve germinated from it, not its past glories. Anthroposophia is the good seed that the Sower has planted, which, if it lands on good soil, can produce thirtyfold, sometimes sixtyfold, and even sometimes an hundredfold. Those branches are where our energies should be going; not, in my opinion, in glorifying what’s past – that, to me, borders on “religion”. If the Earth’s purpose is to develop love, then that should be where our energies are directed.
Then there’s this hope that Lucifer will be redeemed. It’s a fine thing to hope for, but let’s be realistic. I feel that Lucifer and Ahriman are sensible enough beings to know their fate. However, they’ve sold themselves to a cosmic power (in Sorat) who’s not going to let them off the hook easily. I believe they’d like to be redeemed, but that just as Judas Iscariot realized, there’s a force that’s entered them that’s being carried forward by destiny, and that their personal destiny is to be cast into the lake of fire, to be tormented “day and night forever and ever”, as Revelation 20:10 tells us. Exactly what this “lake of fire” is remains to be seen; it sounds to me like something cosmic, something out in the macrocosm that science hasn’t discovered yet, something that will be experienced by this evil trio in their very being – the kind of burning that drove Judas to hang himself in an attempt to escape his miseries.
Yes we can affect our blood thru our thinking.
I am future oriented. I used to long to untangle karmic knots within the Anthroposophical Society, but found no one willing to do that hard work, It’s so much easier to scapegoat or demonize the other; so I am not one to aggrandize the past.
For me Anthroposophia is a now being, emissary of the Divine Sophia whose center is the Spiritual Sun, where she works with Christ-Michael, but whose pleroma reaches up to the Spirits of Wisdom, & down to the Anthroposophia that we human beings are meant to cultivate…
On Saturday I will go into the Spiritual Science which gives us the picture of the redemption of Lucifer…connected to the Christ & the Holy Grail…
Thru the Christ everything is possible…
But we must also do our part…
