4438Re: [anthroposophy] reasons for hope?
- Aug 2, 2002Thanks Robert, I like your suggestions.
#1... There are increasingly good books in the 'new age'
section of most book stores. By good books I mean books
are attempting to create bridges between the infinite
mysteries and the daily lives of the readers. Many of these
new books are less egotistical and more objective. The other
side of this shiny coin is that in the science section of
bookstores we are beginning to see more and more books trying
to address mysterious phenomena; there will always be the
absolute denials and refutation of spiritual reality, but
many of the books from the science section are standing on
the edge of the razor blade and acknowledging the confusion.
I take a bit of hope from these trends. An example of the
former type of book is "The After-Life Experiments". An
example of the later is "Who's afraid of Schodinger's cat"...
#2... There is a perverse hope to be taken in the devastating
and tragic results of our societies blind confidence in
technology. We are seeing more and more the futility of
merely throwing money and technique at our problems. Not all
of us are seeing this, but more and more people are feeling
the need to ask deeper questions surrounding issues like
education, health and social welfare. As more of us wake up
to the impossibilities we face, the world begins to take on a
new hue; a soft purple light can be discerned within the
festering darkness. See Netfuture.com
#3...And let us take hope from the fact of Bradford.
#4... The fact that a piece of art as consistently beautiful
and swampy as "Time is the Revelator" by Gillian Welsch was
produced in our times is a wonderful sign that the human
spirit is doing fine and getting ready to do some good hard
work. Buy the cd and see what I mean.
That's it for now...
