- Nov 19 1:10 PMThe tell tale signs of a hot choleric character profile, who merges
with fire, the fire of ideas, the candle flame, and writes a
wonderful play on that flame called the Candle Maker that had
ignited like a lit flame in his intellect. Bruno represents living
and dying by the fiery temperament and character of the choleric
thinker, doer, who feeds off resistance and human ignorance in the
dawning age of mighty light that ripped through his thinking.
Bruno and Waldorf education understands human realities as the basis
of grasping that Bruno was born near the active sulphur spewing
volcano Vesuvius and we can see how powerfully this environment
infused into his blood the fire salamanders from our previous
temperament studies. When we actually understand the clues of
various individual destinies, we can also take into consideration
where an individual grew up and was born and what impressed his
early etheric development. Here we see what impressed Giordano
Bruno's early etheric development.
"In the year 1548 an Italian boy was born in the little town of
Nola, not far from Vesuvius. Although, he spent the greater part of
his life in hostile and foreign countries he was drawn back to his
home at the end of his travels and after he had written nearly
When he was thirteen years old he began to go to school at the
Monastery of Saint Domenico. It was a famous place. Thomas Aquinas,
himself a Dominican, had lived there and taught. Within a few years
Bruno had become a Dominican priest.
It was not long before the monks of Saint Dominico began to learn
something about the extraordinary enthusiasm of their young
colleague. He was frank, outspoken and lacking in reticence. It was
not long before he got himself into trouble. It was evident that
this boy could not be made to fit into Dominican grooves. One of
the first things that a student has to learn is to give the teacher
the answers that the teacher wants. The average teacher is the
preserver of the ancient land marks. The students are his audience.
They applaud but they must not innovate. They must learn to labor
and to wait. It was not Bruno's behavior but his opinions that got
him into trouble.
He ran away from school, from his home town, from his own country
and tried to find among strangers and foreigners a congenial
atmosphere for his intellectual integrity that he could not find at
home. It is difficult not to get sentimental about Bruno. He was a
man without a country and, finally, without a church.
Bruno was interested in the nature of ideas. Although the name was
not yet invented it will be perfectly proper to dub Bruno as an
epistemologist, or as a pioneer Semanticist. He takes fresh stock
of the human mind."
Now the hot blooded and fiery choleric, can be found in Emergency
Rooms and in Medics everywhere. They are not always fiery red-headed
carrot tops that always stare at you with 'come on, go ahead, I can
take ya' faces. That fire appears in the soft embering glow of
Steiner's in depth lectures, fiery Michael forces supercharged his
blood, where the warmth in his Iron and Light ignited spirit flares
that revealed clarity where there was gathering darkness. His words
rang as consecrated light in all directions. Fission, fusion and
Iron centered sun spirituality cooked Steiner's rich dishes with a
warm, kindled, human blaze.
But then again, on the battle front of life, saving lives, from fire
men and women to police and swat teams to search and rescue on the
high seas, to special forces teams, you hear the choleric
shout, 'GO, GO, GO, GO!'. Adrenaline junkies can be found working
rush hours in restaurants, on the cooking line in the heat of the
battle, where the grills spit fire right in their faces and they
spit back. Choleric fire is in all of us, even Tiger Woods breaks
from his Zen mode to get really pissed off sometimes.
"Some people and all narcissists are addicted to excitement, to
the adrenaline rush, to the danger inevitably and invariably
involved. They are the adrenaline junkies. All narcissists are
adrenaline junkies but not all adrenaline junkies are narcissists.
Thus, an adrenaline junkie must have a supply, a feed, which always
comes with invented excitement, real or invented drama or emotional
drama queens that have choleric forces in their feeling life. We can
understand that choleric forces or any of the other temperaments can
lodge themselves, not only in the will, but in the feeling, and in
the region of mental aggression. On the one hand solid Choleric
types are described as closer to the ground, Napoleonic and over
confident. In a pinch you know that a Choleric will cover your back,
fight to the death and remain in the game though anxiety is
everywhere and the odds against you are everywhere a great choleric
will be the last face you see before you pass out.
