Well, my dear Starman, one man's embarrassment is another's delight
(another woman's, too)--smile.
My definition of anthroposophy is ever expanding, so that the very
word "definition" is itself paradoxically fluid, as is life, as is
wisdom, as is a river. I call discussions of 1)crop circles (events
from spirit worlds or hocus-pocus kind of questions), 2)of the
Ahrimanic deception, 3)of the revolution in Chiapas (related to Group
Soul and other Soul states and to Threefolding, as Soren pointed
out), 4)of the apocalyptic gemstones, to name a few recent threads,
definitely relevant to anthroposophy. Some posts interest me and
others don't. I can choose to read or delete, as can you. Newcomers,
I assume, are not stupid and can pick and choose what they find
relevant. BEsides, this is not a place, in my understanding, for a
newcomer to arrive and think that he or she will be informed as in
Anthroposophy 101. Go elsewhere, I suggest, for that.

course based on being an anthroposophist - which also means to be
present in the practical world and the events in the everyday life....
Neither too idealistic - dreaming away, not to pragmatic - cynical
"that's reality" - but with creativity dealing with even the most
trivial things and seeing practical ways to combine the spiritual and
the physical - by heartfelt human thinking, feeling and willing -
But I guess there's like "studying" anthroposophists and then there's
living anthopops - sometimes we meet and find common ground, and
sometimes the "studying" is too much in the library for the "living",
and the "living too much in the world for the "studying" .... Rudy was
pretty good at being both on the factoryfloor understanding the
lifesituation and the aspirations going on there, and talking Jesus
with spinsters from teh nobility - we are basically all just threefold
man with a christimpulse ... and it's in our heart, as soon as we rip
away the illusions, Lucifer making us put the head too much in the sky
and Ahriman pulling us too deep in the ground ----
