Spirits on Fire

I have two friends, Stephen Clarke, and Barbara Gardiner. We met on the Internet. I have posted several of their works to this blog, and below I will provide all the relevant links for both. Another “friend”, Patrick Dixon added the last bit.

Barbara read my “Outlaw Anthroposophy” around 1999. She emailed me, and discourse began. She also sent me Irina Gordienko’s book on Sergei O. Prokofieff, at that time a young leading light in the Anthroposophical Society.

The Gordienko book caused a great stir, and was basically suppressed. Meanwhile, Barbara let me publish some of her works on my at that time website.

Many of the principles she illuminates can be applied to politics anywhere, where freedom and democracy are the goals.

There are instructions, and guidance, in this book for a deeply meditative self study, which will greatly benefit many souls.

a meditative study on Christian esotericism, and the tragedy of Steiner’s passing

Here are some miscellaneous writings: A review of my book: “The Art of God – an actual theory of Everything” http://ipwebdev.com/hermit/artofgodreview.html a section from Shepherd’s Fire, on the Burning of the original Goetheanum https://thecollectiveimagination.com/2022/12/15/the-burning/

She passed recently. I never met her in the physical, but my lady and her two daughters got invited to go visit her in Scotland


Stephen and I met on the Internet discussion forum called “the Ark”. Details of that adventure are here: http://ipwebdev.com/hermit/Culmination.html

The next link had a lot of art, had … the conversion of the pdf. to text dropped this important aspect. My email address is hermit@tiac.net and if you ask nicely, I’ll a send a copy in pdf, or in Microsoft Word, or in odt, for such as LibreOffice. Should be printed too.


Earlier works of Stephen, about America, Meso-America, and all manner of deep investigations of the spiritual nature of the Americas …. comments connected to links are his …


“It has now been a full century since Rudolf Steiner presented the lectures of 1916, those most commonly known as containing enigmatic references to the “Mexican Mysteries”. Thus it is timely to take into account what has come into common knowledge in the time since as well as to review the understandings of such things as known by their own actors.”


“O’boy!  Discussion of images (like to have them but at this point don’t). Stuff on R.J. Stewart, an essay from Patrick Dixon and lots more (including more books then you might be able to read in a lifetime.”


“Lots of Rudolf Steiner’s stuff on the Mexican Mysteries (appendix includes the full text), given a hearty dose of good old American “I’m from Missouri, show me” attitude, and then filled with the light of the West.”


“Sorry can’t do much more than hint – how about mesoamerica, the bomb, the divine feminine, mysteries of the underworld, close encounters and more.”


Then there is Patrick Dixon. I read the article below some years ago, and was in the process of putting it into my book American Anthroposophy, noting it was being done without permission … One day, before I was finished with that book, he called me on the phone – out the blue as it were, and when I told him of wanting to publish it, he gave permission.
