Thanks, Bruce/Lincoln:occult-Re: [anthroposophy] Re: Masons-
- Dear Bruce,
Thank you for a very informative and thoughtful reply to my observations and
questions about Thomas Jefferson(TJ), "the Founding Fathers of the U.S."
(FF), their relationship to Freemasonry, and Steiner's relationship to
Freemasonry. The sources you cite are helpful, and your post, along with
Joel's referring me to Terry Boardman's articles on anthroposophy and
"con-spiracy", opens up a lot. I feel I can breathe now again--with you
("con-spire", that is, in the positive sense of the term)! (smile)
I didn't know about 98th degree Masonry. This, apparently, goes way beyond
the 33rd level of the members of the so-called Illuminati, or those rich and
few attempting to manipulate people in the name of the New
I am relieved to hear that Steiner spoke about the "pursuit of happiness" as
not being the goal of human life, but instead pointed to the goal of
fulfilling a task.
As for your question on Lincoln and the occult, you write:
>I mean the kind of deeper involvement. Durward(Starman), referred to
>I didn't know that. Do you mean the kind of occultism that Durward
>talked about or deeper involvement as I am now suggesting?
Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd, as the one who was really involved in the
occult--was it seances and the like?. That may well be so. However, that
does not mean that Lincoln was not involved on a deeper level. I can't give
you any sources now. I've run across these things over the
years--suggestions that Lincoln had severe headaches or some illness or
pain, and that somehow this was connected to his having certain psychic
abilities (but i can't state this as fact, and i may be wrong here). But as
to deeper matters, there has been some suggestion (again, i can't state this
as fact and can't cite sources)--some suggestion that Lincoln was aware of
larger occult streams at work in U.S. history, and at work in his own role
in re-creating the Union.
I will see if i can find sources, to take this beyond the vagueness i am now

"Anthroposophy does not want to impart knowledge.
It seeks to awaken life."
