Re: Sophia and Anthroposophia Oops 2
Although I do wonder how it is that one can indeed experience Michael
as one can experience Christ.
>So, how is it that Michael is in the Etheric as Christ? Is he? IfOkay so here is what Mr. Prokofieff has to say about Michael in this
>not how do we experience this?
sphere: pg 99
" The Archangel Michael had to prepare for descending himself to the
Earth, in a certain sense imitating the great process of the descent
of Christ Jesus...adopting the Earth as his starting point and
continuing to work from teh standpoint of Earth.
Of course, the 'descent of Michael to the Earth' is a supersensible
and not a physical descent. But as will be said later on, in order to
carry out his new spiritual activity he had to find 'his starting
point on Earth to continue working from the standpoint of Earth.
In other words we have here to do with a twofold supersensible
process: on the one hand with the descent of Michael, the present
Time-Spirit, into the immediate spiritual surroundings of the Earth,
and on the other, the beginning developement of the Spirit Self
principle of Anthroposophia in her own being."
He goes onto say something of Dr. Steiner which for me makes the most
sense if anything ever did in my whole life: pg 83
Thus Rudolf Steiner became the first person to recieve in full
consciousness the communion of the Michaelic intelligence from teh
spiritual chalice, given to him in the higher worlds by the heavenly
Sophia through the supersensible being who serves her. Thus what had
been taking place unconscioulsy amongst mankind throughout modern
times was concentrated at this historic moment in one human being,
who manifested in his individual life an archtypal picture of this
path for the whole of humanity.
As a result, Rudolf Steiner became the first earthly representative
and emissary of the heavenly Sophia on Earth."
So, here in my life is where I have been led by Dr. Steiner: Reading
this man makes my whole last three and a half years have some real
meaning of where I have been leading on this journey. I remember
fighting so hard for this point that he has was the one who was
leading me to the Magdalene mystery and it is true. And it is in his
Fifth Gospel that the being Anthroposophia is made known to all. What
a journey it has been. And I am so thankful that I have found this
book of the Heavenly Sophia after I had to duke it out for my point
otherwise I would probably be stuck in the phenomina of the mystery
versus grounding it in thought.
