As I have mentioned it on one occasion or two before, I'll tell it again
because it relates quite nicely to the above sentiments. When I was
approaching my 29th birthday, in the midst of the intense activities
surrounding the eruption of Mount Saint Helen, about ten days before the
eruption occurred on May 18, 1980, I was working out in my backyard
tilling the soil for new grass when suddenly a Voice spoke down to me
with these words: "You are so worthy, and you always have been." I felt
these words both in my head and in my heart. And for nearly six months
I was in an altered state of consciousness due to the effects of this
Now of course, as we know through spiritual science, this Voice was the
Etheric Christ speaking from out of the etheric world where he had
reappeared as forecasted by Rudolf Steiner beginning with lectures given
in early 1910. In fact, it was not long after the death of Steiner's
father in January, 1910, that Steiner first began to speak about the
imminent return of Christ in the Etheric World. So, it could be said
that in the same way that John the Baptist was the forerunner of the
Christs' coming in the physical world, so was Rudolf Steiner the
forerunner of Christs' coming in the etheric world.
And it just seems to me that this function of announcing the coming of
Christ would fall on the shoulders of the Bodhisattva to announce. It
just makes sense that it would come from the lips of the bodhisattva who
hears the voice as it comes closer and closer to the earth. With John
the Baptist, it was so close that his own cousin was the bearer of the
news of Christ in the physical world. Thus John's announcement was "on
the money". And bearing the angel messenger Elijah within his soul
enabled John to outwardly convey this coming in his physicality. He was
thus the Bodhisattva of the Christian era itself, announcing the
incarnation of Christ into the physical world.
Rudolf Steiner bore not only a perfect astral body, but also a perfect
etheric body as well. And it is the combination of having these two
together that makes for a "sattva body" of truth and light. Rudolf
Steiner had these, just as John the Baptist had these. In the Gospel
of Luke it was expressed as being born with "The Holy Spirit", as also
the Jesus child spoken of in this gospel was born of it as well. And we
know through spiritual science that Jesus bore both the astral body and
etheric body of the great Zarathustra. And we also know that at the age
of 12 the Ego of Zarathustra also entered into this combination,
enabling Zarathustra to live for seventeen years in the sheaths of Jesus
of Nazareth experiencing his entire being (ego, astral, etheric) minus
the physical body that he had dwelt in as the Matthew Jesus child.
So it is with a profound sense of security and enthusiasm that I
consider the concrete reality of spiritual becoming; for I have not only
heard the Voice of Consolation that Rudolf Steiner predicted would usher
in the Etheric Christ beginning in the decade of the 1940's with the
increasing phenomena of people experiencing something of what Paul
experienced on the road to Damascus, but also the fact that I sought for
fourteen years to find the answer to Who was this Voice, and it was
finally given its identity through spiritual science.
And fourteen years is a grail age. I have also treaded the Holy Grail
in this pursuit. And now, another fourteen years has elapsed since the
Voice was revealed as being the Etheric Christ. That is another Grail
Yes, Spiritual Becoming is an ultimate fact for the world and its
inhabitants, and when consciously and conscientiously known and applied,
is a joy to behold and live. It represents the beginning of bliss as
our entry into the higher worlds denotes a process of
spiritual-creativeness. For the Kingdoms of Heaven rightfully reside
within us, and we create each one with our own conscious detail as an
outward expression of this reality-in-the-making.

Carol, this is Karen's final communication to me, and I find it perplexing. It seems to have more to do with Bruce than me, but Karen was always confusing us. Here it is:So my dear, unable at any time to deal with the unpleasant karma
between us because of course Bruce has been manipulating my post for
the past year, and deliberatly placing things out of context and we've
never been able to honestly deal with the karmic situation. I suppose
at least bruce is posting from his archives now instead of everthing
he was holing up and holding back so that he could write up on it in
spiritualscience. Not to worry i dont.
I dont like having bad feeling s towards people and for the most part
I certainly don't.
So from my part I wish you bliss, love, happiness and joy but I guess
its not what you want.. whatever it is.. if its good and from God I
hope you get it :)
I will be logging in from time to time I hope to clear the archives. I
like doing it, deleting everything I've written -
God blessSteve: Of course, I can't express anything from Bruce. I can only express from a loving influence which you seem now to give to me in part. I like it because I hate the stress that you impose on my soul. It hurts very much. So, thanks for these weak, tenuous words, and I hope that you know that your place is better than mine.Steve
