I rejoice at your Thinking Bradford, yes bold 'T' for whenever we've straightened Christ-Healed the Luciferian Fall Impulse of the "Distorsion" in ourselves, the Thinking Eyes can see the Light and the Shadow, can Communy with "That Which Is" and tell "What is HAPPENING", cause Spiritual Science is:
"TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING",
"WHERE THIS HAPPENING ORIGINATES",
and "HOW IT WILL PROCEED FURTHER".
Thanks for your Michaelism Bradford.
Simply TOO RARE...
Long live the Man who has such a Capable, Fertile Thinking Organism....

Rudolf Steiner and : Undestanding the Intellectual Soul
(Rational = INTELLECTUAL soul has been enlarged by me)
"As external man, we consist of physical body, etheric body and astral body.
In the course of time, into these sheaths we have built by means of our Ego
the sentient soul into the sentient body, the rational or INTELLECTUAL soul
into etheric body, and a consciousness soul into the physical body. These
three soul members we have developed and have built into the three sheaths
where they now dwell.
Let us suppose that in some incarnation we were so tempted by Lucifer, or in
other words, we developed such egotistical impulses, greed, and other
instincts that our soul was laden with transgressions. These transgressions
may be in the sentient soul, the rational or INTELLECTUAL soul, or in the
consciousness soul. This then is the cause which in some future incarnation
will be implanted in one of the three soul members.
Let us suppose that there was a fault attributable especially to the forces
of the INTELLECTUAL soul. In the state between death and rebirth this will
be so metamorphosed that it will be manifested in the etheric body. Thus in
the new incarnation we encounter in the etheric body an effect that may be
traced back to a cause in the INTELLECTUAL soul of a preceding incarnation.
But the INTELLECTUAL soul of the next incarnation will again work
independently in that incarnation, and it makes a difference whether this
human being has previously committed this fault or not. If he has committed
it in an earlier incarnation, he now carries his fault in his etheric body.
It is now deeper rooted and is not in the INTELLECTUAL soul but in the
etheric body. But such rationality and good sense as we may acquire upon the
physical plane will affect only our INTELLECTUAL soul, and will not affect
the activity of our INTELLECTUAL soul in an earlier incarnation which has
already been woven into the etheric body.
For this reason it may happen that the forces of the INTELLECTUAL soul, as
we now encounter them in human beings, are doing their work logically, so
that the real inner being is altogether intact; but that the co-operation of
the INTELLECTUAL soul with the diseased part of the etheric body provokes
error in a certain direction. We can affect the INTELLECTUAL soul with
reasons which can be brought forward upon the physical plane, but we cannot
directly affect the etheric body. That is why neither logic nor persuasion
will have any effect.
Logic would be of little use were we to place someone in front of a convex
mirror so that he could see his distorted image, and then try to convince
him that he is mistaken in thus seeing the image. He will nevertheless see a
distorted image. In the same way does it depend upon the man himself if he
morbidly misunderstands a thing, for his logic may be sound in itself but is
reflected in a deformed manner by his etheric body.
Thus we can carry within our deep organism the karmic effects of an earlier
incarnation, and we can actually demonstrate that the defect is present in a
certain part of the organism, as in our etheric body for instance. We see
here how under the luciferic influence we have contracted an evil in a
previous incarnation, and how between death and a new birth it has been
transformed. In the interim between death and a rebirth is accomplished the
transformation of something internal into something external, and then
Ahriman works against us through our own etheric body.
This shows how Ahriman is drawn by Lucifer to approach our etheric body.
Previously the transgression was luciferic; it has been so transformed that,
as it were, a receipt for it is given us by Ahriman in the next incarnation,
and then it is a question of expelling the defect from one's etheric body.
This can be done only by a deeper intervention in our organism than can be
achieved in one incarnation by the ordinary means of external reason.
He who in a certain incarnation passes through such an experience as that of
persecution mania will, when again passing through the gate of death, be
confronted by all the actions that he has performed in consequence of this
ahrimanic defect, and he will see the absurdity of what he has done. From
this will spring the new force which will completely heal him for his next
incarnation; for he can be healed only by realising henceforth that the way
he acted under the influence of the symptoms in question was absurd in the
external world. We now realise how we can assist such healing. If someone
suffers from such mad ideas we shall not succeed in healing him by means of
logical reasoning, for such reasoning will only call forth even more violent
But we shall achieve some result, especially when such a disposition shows
in early youth, if we bring the sufferer into such a situation where the
consequences of these symptoms prove themselves to be obviously absurd. If
we make him face facts called forth by himself, and which react upon him in
a crassly absurd manner, we can heal him in a certain way. We can also have
a healing influence if we ourselves are so far in possession of the truths
of Spiritual Science, that they have become the inner possession of our
soul. If they have become such an integral part of us, then the whole of our
personality will be radiating these truths of Spiritual Science. With these
truths that stream into life between birth and death, filling it and yet
projecting this life itself; with these revelations of the supersensible
world we can achieve more than with external rational truths.
When nothing can be achieved by external logical reasoning we shall, if we
patiently apply the truths of Spiritual Science, be able to bring impulses
to bear upon the person in question, so that we can, as it were, achieve in
the one incarnation what could otherwise take place only by the circuitous
passage from one incarnation to another, namely, through penetration of the
etheric body by the INTELLECTUAL soul. For the truths of the physical plane
cannot bridge the chasm between the sentient soul and the astral body,
between the INTELLECTUAL and the etheric body, or even between the
consciousness soul and the physical body. That is why we shall always find
that however much wisdom concerning the material world one may absorb upon
the physical plane, this wisdom will have but little relationship to the
world of his feeling what we might term a permeation of his astral body by
the corresponding impulses and passions.
One may be most learned, may have much theoretical knowledge of things
belonging to the physical world, may have become an old professor, and yet
may not have attained within to a transformation of the impulses, feelings
and passions that dwell within the astral body. One may indeed know a great
deal about the physical world and yet be a gross egotist, because such
impulses have been absorbed in youth. Naturally the two things can go hand
in hand, external material science and cultivation of the astral and etheric
bodies from within.
In the same way one can possess truths and amass such knowledge as may
become forces for the INTELLECTUAL soul in regard to the physical plane, and
yet be incapable of bridging the deep chasm existing between the
INTELLECTUAL soul and the etheric body. In external truths, though one may
be learning an enormous amount it will seldom be found that what has been
learnt will have any power over the formative forces of the body."
Now we might understand the etheric distortions we encounter in people and
they are strange and I could list my own as well as others right here on
this list. But rather, imagine how the understanding of Cancer finally
develops after Ahriman gets a receipt from Lucifer, "payment required" in
the realm before Incarnation and the forming of the Etheric body? Okay, here
We ask here, to consider 'what' forces, and these forces are shaped after
death and from the stars, what forces can be claimed by a cloned individual?
Must I wear the mask of another and borrow their face and still remember
that whoever I am, I am now operating in a vehicle, but as a star seed
being, I must now carry out Karma, my karma in a vehicle that was built for
somebody else. For indeed each piece of Time and matter is infused with Time
and Star wisdom. No lab can escape Star and Etheric, Astral permeation. You
could be born on a certain day or you could be cloned on a certain day. The
only difference is, am I me or am I a you?
But finally a terminal illness like Cancer arises or certain diseases arise
when the unpaid tab from Lucifer to Ahriman finally comes down to Flesh.
Here we see a kind of staging of Lucifer-Ahriman-Asura as a counter pin-ball
game, where the ball keeps falling and buck finally stops. But do we
understand any of this? I know we must. It must be grasped that the Ego,
Lower Ego of man, has a triad orbiting its soul spiritual thinking field.
Sentient Soul, Intellectual Soul and Consciousness Soul - are the intimate
me'isms or you'isms and we have been able, amongst us, to read some of these
kinks in the Etheric mirror. Oh, I have my own but, like you, I am a rare
breed who pursue Spiritual Science because it towers over other
psychological models now in use.
All the things that were uttered and buried in various lectures and courses,
can be examined with intimate detail. But as Joel has indicated, we have to
bring our thinking in relation to seeing, not only obvious distortions in
others.. which we much prefer to tangle with, than learning what we are
looking at in the psychological structure of people. I see these things even
through the Electronic haze yet, I also think it is interesting to know what
you are looking at. Steiner is saying, somewhat, that this Intellectual Soul
Region, and this applies to every scrap of our Political and emotional 21st
century culture, is saturated with logic and also impossible etheric
distortions that all the logic of the world seems unable to cure because it
is hidden in the layered etheric habit body. Better we present our research
to each other and try to enjoy each others company and if possible, our
You see, my life long disappointment has always been, "if they knew the
right thing to do, certainly they would do it" and it has ever been a sore
point in my learning. For even when the heart knows some golden, warmed
Christed Insight has flown through the net - There is no Christ Being for
those to think through to defer it to. Rather, Ahriman also sits in this
leaky boat of the Intellectual Soul. Ahriman denies that the boat is
leaking. Just like the Titanic was unsinkable. Ahriman lives in the
Ahrimanic deceptions of the distorted etheric mirrors we carry.
You might ask, well if everyone has such distorted mirrors how can we
understand one another. We do understand one another and we do understand
what Steiner means and some of us may deny it and some of us may be aware of
the golden shimmer that alerts us to the Being who stirs the Ethers. It can
be done, our sharing, but it means we love the shimmering stir of the ethers
in others, more than the distorted mirror hurled back at us. That is hard
and I don't think I can do it. It does not mean, that we remain unconscious
of the amazing chameleon like nature, the denial, the distoted Intellectual
Soul refusals and defenses that people deliberatly hide behind. But it does
mean we get a taste of the complexity of what it means to investigate
Spiritually and be healers.
As I have stated in the past, Many good insights have come from all of us,
enough that I consider it an extended Karmic research factor, which I can,
at times, rejoice in.
