Re: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] Interesting Quote
- Have I got this right? By this statement are you inferring that R.J. Stewart
(whoever that may be) was writer of the Matthew gospel?

List-discussions do bring out the Double in one; you are "bingo" on
that! Now we could llok at our own posts as if through the eyes of
another, what revelations could be found, what material for self-
humbling! And, oh, yes, I include myself.
But note: this medium not only inflates one's own double-tendencies,
it can also infect one with turbulent and divisive tendencies which
one would not normally "channel." Check Steiner on the subnatural
And: Steiner has described how certain adversarial beings, held in
check by a combination of cosmic law and lack of personal free will,
agitate free humans to do their dirty work for them; to act out their
dark fantasies. Luciferic abstraction and crusading idealism can all-
too-easily flip into its Ahrimanic opposite - if we didn't learn this
from Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, and Lenin, not to mention whatever failed
gurus we like to think of, well, then, what can I say.
Men and women of good will can disgaree about all kinds of
substantive issues - and most will be "right", according to their own
mix of information and personal experience. But look at _how_ these
things are discussed...there a second level of discourse - the real
one - is exposed!
Beware! This dreck can be a vortex for an active emitting of exactly
those tendencies which are inimical to the spirit of any progressive
spirituality. To what wheel do you wish to lend your shoulder: to one
that grinds and smashes or to one that carries everyone forward?
Frank: you are sometimes stubborn on issues which I think are settled
counter to your opinion ( e.g.: I think that the Official
Explanations are frequently the biggest and least
believable "conspiracy theories" of all; frequently their only virtue
is a superficial simplicity; "Go back to sleep"), but I'll take a
stubborn rationality over a credulous fanatacism any day. That kind
of thing should be put well in check _before_ any serious spiritual
work is undertaken.
oh well, cheers,
