True Word’s Fire

Pin on i like

Here is an interesting painting: ‘John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene’ by Angelo Puccinelli, bringing these 2 important individualities working with Christ on earth, together. Just as the Baptizer prepared the way for the arrival of the Messiah, Mary Magdalene was chosen to prepare the hearts of the apostles for the visitation of the Resurrected Christ. And in her connection to The Sophia, in our time now, she works to prepare the way for us to receive the Christ in the etheric.

God’s True Word’s Fire

And when I am in senses’ heights
the gods’ true Word from spirit fire-worlds
is flaming in my depths of soul:
Foreseeing, seek your vision, find your star,
divine in spirit ground
the spirit bond with who you are.

A key word here in the German is ahnend, often translated as ‘divining’
or ‘dawning vision’. It’s the only word whose sound I also bring into English.
The ‘ah’ opens our feeling for the future. Last week’s verse asks us to seek
our true self ‘in cosmic warmth and light’ – for our higher self, our star, to shine in us.

Karl König describes the Soul Calendar as having 4 voices.
This is the last verse of the first movement, the voice of the Tenor,
uniting with the spirit through the senses. Next week will be the first
verse of the Baritone, incarnating spirit with imaginative insight.

  1. Apologies for this late comment here, but for some reason I remembered this mention of Joseph Smith. I really do wonder what the whole Mormon stream – if you will – was all about. It certainly has grown, and has it’s influence since the 19th century. I mean, especially with the original members of the movement, the level of faith they had – no matter what one makes of it – was incredibly high. For instance, Orrin Porter Rockwell. This guy was deemed invincible. It was said he didn’t have an article of clothing without a bullet hole through it, even though he died of natural causes.

    It’s almost as though in the 19th century, you had a reenactment of biblical times with a wild west backdrop, with a messiah (Joseph Smith) and everything.

    1. Yes, the Mormons are a mystery to me…I have studied most other religions but have not felt called to enter that realm.
      Maverick, did Edger Casey say anything about it?

  2. This is an extraordinary painting of John the Baptist with Mary Magdalene. Yet, it can be shown that she knew that her brother, Lazarus, was a disciple of John before following Jesus. As well, she is memorialized in life for being a follower of Christ-Jesus for most of the three years that He walked the earth, and for many years afterward. By the time of Peter’s miraculous escape from jail, described in Acts, chapter 12, she was an icon of the Johannine Christians there in Jerusalem. She is the one that most prepared Christ for burial, while He lived.

    3 While He was in Bethany at the home of Simon the leper, and reclining at the table, there came a woman with an alabaster vial of very costly perfume of pure nard; and she broke the vial and poured it over His head. 4 But some were indignantly remarking to one another, “Why has this perfume been wasted? 5 For this perfume might have been sold for over three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor.” And they were scolding her. 6 But Jesus said, “Let her alone; why do you bother her? She has done a good deed to Me. 7 For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you wish you can do good to them; but you do not always have Me. 8 She has done what she could; she has anointed My body beforehand for the burial. 9 Truly I say to you, wherever the gospel is preached in the whole world, what this woman has done will also be spoken of in memory of her.” Matthew 14

  3. Hi Hazel how are you? You mentioned Karl Konig and something about 4 voices…since I try to read every day, wondering if you can point me in the direction about the 4 periods/voices.

    BTW I took the liberty to tell our study group in Richmond specifically about your writings, which I feel greatly expand the feeling and mood of Anth. Calendar e.g. John the Baptist, the past couple weeks…I just don’t know how to build up this group
    Warmly, Mike Bogil

    1. Hi Michael – That reference was from Roy Sadler our beloved translator of Steiner’s COTS.

      Thank you for sharing to your group…
      One step at a time eh…


      1. Thank you Hazel…I found Karl Koenig’s two books right on Amazon and Floris. Thanks again for your “blog”
