18807Knowledge, Teaching..Dennis Klocek
- Aug 3, 2005Friends I just have to share this little piece from
Dennis Klocek's book Knowledge, Teaching and teh Death
of thy Mysteries:
Adult Education: 2000
"You take a picture from teh natural world, you hold
it and try to unfold it sequence to sequence. A
picture will form in you as a process of becoming.
When you do that, you have directly entered your
etheric body, that is imagination. In the beginning it
is an imagination with a little i. If it is taken as a
practice - a regular, rhythmical practice - and again
and again you form a leaf and try to see how the leaf
would grow, growing it in your inner eye, that is
meditation. It is an etheric meditation on the formal
principle behind the leaf.
If it is incorrect, and you keep persisting in the
rhythm, it will be corrected. It will be corrected by
the beings who stand behind those ether forces in the
natural world. They will come to you because suddenly
here is a human being who is showing an extraordinary
interest in their activity. Just think how you would
feel if you ahd been laboring your whole life to do
something in obscurity, and suddenly some being poked
his head through into the space where you were working
and said, "Wow! That is really cool, what you are
doing!" What would you do? You would turn to him and
say, 'Hey! Where have you been all my life?" That is
just what the beings who are serving the Christ Being
and teh Hierarchies in nature will do when you start
to pay attention to them in the way they need to be
paid attention to, which is in a lawful way.
Goethe called this practice 'exact sense perception'.
It is a great tool for the Waldorf teachers. Take
anything that you are struggling with in a block, in a
science block especially, and just try to picture it.
But don't picture it as a dead thing; picture it with
a sensitivity towards how it looked just before it got
to where it is now. Then take that a step back, and
then a step back. If you can get two or three steps
back, you are in your ether body. That is right from
Rudolf Steiner'. You are in your ether body if you can
begin to see this process inwardly in an exact way. It
has to be exact - and there is a danger. The danger is
that when you do that, and you start to actually see
pictures, you will think: one, that you made them; and
two, that they are correct. So we have to make that
What we do is to go from the ether body into the
astral body, because the astral body is where the
action is. Taht is where the adversaries are building
little fast food places where they hang out, waiting
for lunch. WE need to find a way in there, and teh way
we find in, which osunds paradoxical, is that 'after'
we form the exact picture we have to think it away
into complete and utter silence. When we think it away
into complete utter silence, we have entered directly
into our astral body, according to Rudolf Steiner.
When we participate in the astral body, the danger is
that in the astral body we hvae the experiencces that
we have no form, because the form comes from the
This man is so amazing. Really. It's like reading
Rudolf Steiner it is so simplistic yet so very deep
and oh so very very funny. Dr. Steiner makes me laugh,
he always has, and now so does Mr. Klocek. He has a
great thought on how we 'turn the will' and a great
ongoing conversation with the hiearchies asking 'why
are they following those retarded beings with
everything we give them?:))))) Oh God it is so
wonderful to read a modern day man after the likes of
Dr. Steiner. Truly it is.
I think this is a great book for people who want to
know what Dr. Steiner' teachings are about. I mean Mr.
Klocek expresses Dr. Steiner's thoughts in such
simplistic terms that I can hear Dr. Steiner saying
'hey, why didn't I think to say it like that, thanks
Dennis' :)) Really it is that good and simplified.
Maybe I will share a part of his thoughts on the
'turning of the will' tomorrow. It's pretty stunning
and again simplistic.
All good things,
