Castles in the Air II – the truth does matter …
Rosemary McMullen wrote, in response to the first Castles in the Air – does the truth matter?:
“The social and spiritual blind spots will persist until the “gatekeepers” are able to self-correct. I appreciate your work but its huge size deters me. Meanwhile MysTech lumbers forward in its flawed way, allowing hundreds of spiritual seekers to meet each other and choose in freedom what to do with Steiner’s indications.”
“ … from a conversation between Steiner and Walter Johannes Stein in 1922: “ I asked Rudolf Steiner: ‘What will remain of your work thousands of years from now?’ He replied:’Nothing but The Philosophy of Freedom. But in it everything else is contained. If one realizes the act of freedom described there, one can discover the whole content of anthroposophy.“
There is no spiritual freedom (in the sense that RS meant*) if what MysTech teaches and models, excludes the study of that book, and its predecessor: “Goethe’s Theory of Knowledge”. [*In the first book, this admonition:
“One must be able to confront and idea, and experience it, otherwise one will fall into its bondage”. The second Owen Barfield called “the least read most important book Steiner ever wrote”.
Among Steiner “lore” is the tale that he and Carl Unger Jr (?). were standing somewhere, which allowed a good view of the Building and its environment, and Steiner is alleged to have said: “We may have to come back at the end of the Century and destroy all this.”
Yes, Rosemary, my stuff is too much to read, yet as the “librarian” of my work, it becomes then interactive, and all you have to do is ask me questions, and/or invite me to your gatherings, … what is it that is feared?
Let me gift you this summary of five decades of research, with a couple comments on electricity … by the way, I agree with something Stephen Clarke wrote, that Steiner saw electricity through a filter that made its most precious inner golden nature invisible, to him. My own practice tries to involve daily gratitude for my existence, and I acknowledge that there are no things, just Beings in manifestation. Are we grateful for Light? Water? The Moon? Why not “Electricity”, … the Father at Rest.
In the sense of the Macrocosm, all manifested reality is rooted in the actions of Cosmic Beings. The use of the term “cosmic” can lead to confusion, if we assume They are out there, … away … when the fact is that the four forces of modern high energy physics are due to these Beings, and reveals Their presence.
The primary manifested field is electromagnetism. It is the unity of God at rest. Gravity is one effect of the Mother (nurturer) principle, and Levity (dark matter-breathing), one effect of the Son principle, … together are the primary polarity, with the Father (generator) principle now in the Son. Tomberg sez the Father made the Ideas, and the Son sees to their realization.
In Hermetic Science first comes the Akasha principle, or realm of the uncreated and unformed, which begats then fire (will-Saturn-Emanation); next the principle of air (intellect-Sun-Creation); then water (feeling-Moon-Formation), and last the principle of earth (consciousness-Earth-Existence).
These Cosmic Beings (such names as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) exist everywhere-when. We are within Them, as They are within us.
Without the Father at Rest (the everywhere-when presence of unity as electromagnetism), Nature has no laws. [the observation, in modern physics, that two entangled particles can be separated in space but not in time (the Now effect), reveals that the fundamental Unity can’t be broken]
Even the sky is within these “fields” … the atmosphere of chem-trails and such.
Scientific Materialism is the cause of much suffering, the Covid Nightmare a terrible example. The central Idea of SM is matter only, no spirit. This was born (the Mother set this up), when after leaving the Egyptian civilization, the Hebrews wrote that we were to have “dominion over” nature.
To heal the sky, of such crimes as come from scientists and weapons makers, we need to discover the oldest Way once more: “communion with”. “Nature” has a sentient inner self-consciousness, just like ours. There are no “things” … spirit is everywhere.
Most of what MysTech worries, concerning the excess of death forces, can be found answered by opening a personal love affair with the Mother. The Garden had another Tree, besides the one teaching knowledge of good and evil. The Tree of Life.
A few years ago, I was looking back over my odd biography (joey and Joel), and I asked myself: Why did Divine Providence send joey to law school?
It did not take long for the Idea of the Shaman’s Law Firm to appear, and become a matter for serious spiritual research. By the way, I am not clairvoyant, but I do do what Carl Stegmann called: clair-thinking … my heart’s mind is living in the world of Pure Forms, or Ideas, as demonstrated above.
It is possible to challenge the Ideas of Scientific Materialism in a Court of Law. I am proposing the establishment of a Spring Michaelic Festival, to coincide with Earth Day. Multiple lawsuits, by environmental lawyers, all filed at the same time, with the Planet as the named plaintiff.
One Way this can Play out is: the lawsuits are met with a motion to dismiss. In response we offer thirteen books as evidence that the Planet is alive. The point is not to win, but to create a perception in the Court of Public Opinion, of this Riddle.
The thirteen books have Steiner’s finger prints all over them. The Rite will attract the media, who love a good story. In my writings I speak of Steiner as the John the Baptist figure of the Second Becoming of Christ in the Realm of Living Thought. I have two books on the list (see link). I call all on the list “a gospel of” the Second Becoming, because those works are rooted in Him, as manifesting as the Wind in the thought, or ethereal, world, as appears to us in the phenomena of contemplation of existence. This Wind is selfless, and supports all thought activity of any human being. Even if we seek to glide downward, They are still with us, our choices – our freedom rules our lives. They love.
The above is the ripe fruit of what you called the “huge size”. Anyone reading this can share it with their environmental friends. For some, the very idea that if a Corporation can be a Person before the Law, then certainly a Planet can be a Person before the Law … this “idea” can awaken and warm hearts: https://thecollectiveimagination.com/shamans-law-firm/
