Yes a good teacher might be able to see the striving. I vowed after
years of being a playwright to write up to my Angel instead of
writing down to the sixth grade level that was demanded by studios.
Now this meant that I secreted and enjoyed the flashes of intuition
and links of perception sooner and with fresh richness and they led
verticallly and invigorated and also brought interest, wide and
spread out interest in things beside my feelings, because I had to
explore the linked ideas and see if they held validity.
The validity, for my own development, wasn't just anything but were
things in my soul where my own learning leaped when some idea or
phrase super triggered itself. Yet I was schooled by some of the
finest thinkers on the planet, but never lost my Artistic humanistic
sense. Hell look at Heidegger's thinking and you can see some very
hot dance steps. But you ain't about to or mature enough to pleasure
in the process of Heidegger but in my studies with Holderlin,
Heidegger had some important insights.
My adventure to the core of Romantic Idealism at the Goetheanum is a
typical adventure that everyone is having but they can't recognize
it. Just off shore from Spiritual Science we got a lot of little
surfers waiting to see if their wave is ready. But they don't know
if they even want to wind surf or ride that wave in with their
Inwardly I leaped into the clues my Angelic intuition gave me and
they were shared in conversations and raw energetic failures on my
part, in the Cool Hand Luke term, failures on my part to communicate.
Being a Waldorf Teacher and having done the homework of
understanding each child and my own children from the standpoint of
incarnation and unique temperament always with the unselfish growing
capacity to see others thoughts and sense their meanings or their
hallucinations. Naturally everybody body has a point and everybody
is in the big water with the tempters.
But Back to Hendrix and Playing Steiner. Much that Joel demands of
others in thinking, is only a phase of intuitional training.
Certainty, symptomology and taking your Angelic intuition seriously,
which are really raying aspects of Spirit Self, Life Spirit and
Spirit Man..forces ahead of my I AM... beaconing me. Now Joel can
hardly recognize it in others and this has links to who Joel is and
how he got there. Just as my intuition will be unique but within the
structure and yours will be and Hendrix was. Or Jancie Joplin or
Dylan, but rich and we know what rich means and it doesn't mean self
destructive. Spiritual Science does not promote self destructive
behavior or encourage Egregorial phantasy.
Hendrix playing the Star Spangled and Steiner rolling out the
thunder of the new Michael Christology is that powerful and that
passionate and indeed what we have, and Joel has a point, is that
the society still continues to play High School marching band music.
Stephen Hale is likely loaded with wild stray jumping beans, but
they make some sense if you can get him to express it properly. His
Slavic idea in the Devachan... did not become balanced in Gurdjeff
but in Ommraam Mikael Asinov and his teacher, we had the real item
Now lets look at Humpty Dumpty, my other theme. You see, when these
themes whizzed by through how I grasped Mike, a whole new fresh
breeze blew in that I had long awaited to understand. You see I have
read and have plenty of SOP books. But my understanding of reality
is not so top heavy and so luciferically heady as the inexperienced
SOP. If we take Poppelbaum's, Konig's and Steiner's accounts and
specific examples of biology and karmic examples or science related
data, we get a very wholesome rich picture of the human being
founded on experience. Sharp pivotal facts wedge in between lofty
spiritual vision, that anchors the idea...so that it becomes fun
hunting for related ideas in science, biology and verification of
concrete Spirit in facts. SOP was a high flag pole on a windy coast.
Now SOP cut and pasted, raw, heady, synthesized ideals, rather like
Plato using Socrates etc.. only we see how Plato did it and we see
the warmth that is too thin and the facts too introverted to Dr.
Steiner and patching together the shattered Anthro Society. SOP has
not had the time or maturity to enter into comparitive psychology,
science research and building a clear impression of etheric, astral,
I AM activity and understanding the flavor in any country of
Sentient Soul or Intellectual Soul flavor and Consciousness Soul
flavor. Specific schooled observations which can be constantly
verified. Just as the symptomology of Lucifer and Ahriman can be
verified concretely from other people, Mark Twain's "Mysterious
Stranger" for example train the eye to see things without the aid of
the lens of Steiner but complimenting it all the same. But that is
Schooling, not hot air bickering and actual fence sitting laziness.
Mark Twain is mainly healthy Intellect Soul and tried with his
lecture tours and other writings to extend out to the Consciousness
Soul and in "The Mysterious Stranger" we have an American
Consciousness Soul Faust experience. Think of how Twain built his
River Boat Huck astral and American personality forces, sentient
soul experiences of village life. He built up his artistic
intellectual soul, remained unfettered to religion, dogma or creed
and suffered heart breaking personal tragedies and also grew in
stature under what? Under the time frame of Halley's Comet.
Unfettered, free flying, whizzing through our mental system again,
taking a rectal temp and flyng out with Halley's comet. But such
details are not fun for heady, mantramish, luciferic adoreres of
SOP. SOP is POP star who has put Humpty, patched together again,
called the Anthro Society. But you think we don't get a picture of
his development in all this?
Why? Well inability to compare human greatness and lack of insight
into world history as fact, and not some stupid fable we were taught
at school, makes the intellect a spoiled lazy little arrogant
monster and that is where all these qualities that Val, Huxley and
Tarjei brought up with where stupidity comes from.
But you see HUmpty Dumpty was the shattered Society devastated by a
World Event that right now in Amerika we are experiencing the same
as Hitler's Germany. But the infection is as subtle as Information
and data wars, not wars with new toys invented to be used, but wars
on imagination, information and it is this quicksand that has eaten
the soul life now. It was shattering real events that robbed and
brought the society to the issue of finding a Young Krishnamurti in
SOP who was a loyal idealist to Steiner, conservative, and who could
cut and paste his way to restoring the idealism of the Anthro
Soceity because the Anthro Society had become, rejected and wallowed
in the type of High School thought forms of Steiner this and Steiner
that, which makes for good marching bands...like Anthro for Dummies
but not for producing thinkers that will play Hendrix accurately so
we can recognize not only the Star Spangled Banner but the Mission
of the Christ Event and Spiritual Science.
The Dummies were those who have not learned to Play in proper lawful
thought life and Science and Art with the joy and passion that
Hendrix played with his music. Because in reality, Steiner was the
Hendrix of Christianity. And the Anthro Society was a shattered
Humpty Dumpty with a true grasp of the whole thought world, like
music and the Christ Event. Now we can compare the shattered
personality vessels of our age and those killed, like JFK when such
Idealism was becoming a super heated cultural potency. SOP and a
whole situation in Dornach arose when they were all looking to the
Slavic side, finding some young, devoted and solid idealists to help
pull Humpty together again. When SOP was spotted they were already
looking for the Russian factor.
But that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the massive footnoted, and
referenced SOP tomes, and the rich ideas he kindles by rubbing two
sticks together. It is rather that I see that it is patched together
and lacks some narrative richness which he hadn't had time to
develop, even if his idealism and intuition were straining,
straining in the right direction. There is just a minor footnote of
maturity, but hey, we are all works in progress.
The difference between SOP and the West is that I know we can
compare Hendrix and Steiner and it would serve a very important
purpose and I look for souls who have just that type of flame of
insight that should be verified by someone.
Initiation did not shatter or burn out Steiner, he was an Initiate
and was built for Initiation realities, Hendrix was not. Steiner
carried it and it finally burned his inner organs and intestines
later from the sheer will he used, as when Christ was holding
himself together hours before the Crucifixion. Steiner did not waste
himself as Hendrix did.
So as you watch Hendrix with ease floating and making his passion
clear, overlay Steiner with holding onto the feet of Michael or
Seeing directly into the passionate music of the Cosmic Christ and
within the storm and passion, Steiner compresses in his astral
forces what he experienced and calmly makes music never heard before
in science or religion.
It's a challenge and I dare say most of us are just cardboard cut

Now go check your inbox one last time, there's
something there for you. And in case Herr Holderlin is
listening, no, it's NOT a nudie picture!!!
