      *******Well, Lightsearcher, there are always going to be "trolls" on any list who only want attention for themselves and have no interest in the topic, only in things like running for President or whatever. Once you identify them, you just put their e-mail addresses on Ignore so their messages are blocked. Otherwise, they waste your time and draw you into their mental world.
         The topic of this list is anthroposophy.  If people are misrepresenting anthroposophy, Steiner told us we have to respond. Apart from that, things not relevant to anthroposophy aren't deserving of attention.
         Here's something that is:

      COMPARISON OF FIRST AND LAST VERSES
      of the Calendar of the Soul

      *******MANTRAM 52*******

      Wenn aus den Seelentiefen
      Der Geist sich wendet zu dem Weltensein
      Und Schonheit quillt aus Raumesweiten,
      Dann zieht aus Himmelsfernen
      Des Lebens Kraft in Menschenleiber
      Und einet, machtvoll wirkend,
      Des Geistes Wesen mit dem Menschensein.

      When out of the Soul's Deeps
      The Spirit wends its way to World-Being
      And Beauty swells into the widths of Space,
      Then is drawn from farthest Heavens
      The Life Force into human bodies
      And there becomes one, mightily working,
      The Spirit's Essence and Man's being.

      *******MANTRAM # 1*******

      Wenn aus den Weltenweiten
      Die Sonne spricht zum Menschensinn
      Und Freude aus den Seelenteifen,
      Dem Licht sich eint im Schauen,
      Dann ziehen aus der Selbstheit Hulle
      Gedanken in die Raumesfernen
      Und binden dumpf
      Des Menschen Wesen und des Geistes Sein.

      When out of the Wide World
      The Sue speaks to Man's Senses
      And Joy out of Soul's Depths
      Becomes one with Light in vision,
      Then is drawn from the Ego's Sheath
      Thinking into farthest Worlds
      And joins, dimly,
      Man's Essence and the Spirit's Being.

         This time of year we receive the Life Force from the returning Sun at Easter. The spirit within goes out into the universe and connects with that Source, from which the new life force will start flowing at Eastertide.
