- Mar 1, 2004Hello Bradford & all!
There has been quite a debate in the AT-forum with the "AP-critics".
Lately it has been hard to find the time even to read through all the
posts. I have really been quite pre-occupied; so it is not possible
for me to take part to those "heated discussions".
I also have my doubts about the outcome of those debates, when the
paradigms are so different. E.g. a human being in "anthro-paradigm"
means something totally different compared to "scientific-
materialistic" paradigm. When even the basic concepts used in a
discussion can mean different things, it is hard to come to some
reasonable conclusion. My respect, though, to everyone, who have the
patience to explain the basics of spiritual science to critics (who
obviously have some other agenda than understanding AP or Waldorf
The accusations (about racism) against Dr. Steiner seem so stupid;
they are (at their best) made by people who are more concerned about
what is conventionally right, socially proper to say in our time,
etc. etc. They are not concerned about thruth.
Certain words from the Revelations come to my mind, when I think
about the opponents of Dr. Steiner and Spiritual Science: "15 I know
thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold
or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor
hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth."
Seekers can come to spiritual movements with three "ways":
through "bad karma" (something to compensate), through "good karma"
(having done some "favours") and through dharma (a definite spiritual
mission, something quite rare). Stern opponents are not lukewarm, and
they get connected to spiritual movements through karma requiring
some compensation in future incarnations (it is dubious to call
this "bad karma"). The possible setback with this kind of "enter" is
connected to future "power struggles". Strong intellectual abilities
and ambition along with lack of spiritual vision can make a lousy
leader Well, something more to compensate later
Hey, I'm stopping now my participation to this subject or am I just
explaining why I am not participating it at all or what ever
"Share, ask.. details.. I've down some of my homework and I know for
a fact that Starbirgarden never failed to stir my heart from her
different and solid vision of things. Joksu, Kevin, Maurice and
dear, dear Cheese and Salsa, Danny, Harvey...all I know is that we
are still here, however pre-occupied.
I am certain that our love still shines.
Let me explain to all parties, way back when I brought answers to
the wonderfual translation letter of Joksu. I wrote it three times,
three and each time I sent it off some electronic crisis occured. My
laptop finally crashed and some of the richer morsels just, just
disappeared as efforts to build the invisible bradford."

Bradford, I'm sorry to hear about your troubles with the laptop
and "translations problems". I am slow enough with English (=writing)
and when german is included that really doesn't speed me up. But I am
sure you got the "basic message" from the letter of Mr. Ervast.
Many thanks to all the writers in this and AT-forum. There have been
many interesting threads. I'll be around and sometimes I might even
try to write something (hey, is this some kind of a "not-promising-
