MysTech Errors of Thought

I just read the MysTech newsletter, sent to me as an email. I can understand how and why such thoughts could come into being. Nevertheless, they are fundamentally spiritually in error.

I’ve been thinking about the past of “illnesses” recently.

I’ve been thinking about the past of “illnesses” recently.

Anthroposophy and the Absence of Faith Rudolf Steiner, if memory serves, had on more than one occasion said something on the order of: Trust the Future.
