Well, of course we could start one there Engemi. That would be cool. Once we get off the ground here I am looking for the next place. Only thing is that I just had a dream or an understanding where I need to also open hostels for the Youth Movement like they have at the bottom of the Hill in Dornach. Same set up exactly! I'm gonna put the word out here in Los Angeles about the idea and I am sure I can find good support for this. This way they will have a home base for their endeavors.
You know I had this kinda waking dream where I first found a painting of Jeanne d'Arch with Archangel Michael and Saint Margaret. The color of Michael's spirit body was pretty interesting and I had never seen it painted in that manner. Reminded me a bit of what the phantom body of Christ. And then the next day I was walking in this old salvage yard looking for some historical pieces for Elderberries when out of the ground flew up this butterfly the same color as Michael's spirit body in the painting. I watched it hover around me and I thought it was so friendly that it was going to stop and sit for a while on my arm. Alas it did not and flew up into the sky yonder. And then I was at Pepboys waiting for E. when suddenly I saw this bird, a little aggressive I'd say and it was chasing something. And I realized it was chasing a butterfly! And the butterfly was the same color as the butterfly at the salvage yard which was the same as Archangel Michael's spirit body: this shimmering white laced with sparkles of light gold. And did you know that this bird chased it up into the air and then swooped down with it and then FLEW UNDER THE CHASSEY OF THIS CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I mean the bird flew under the chassey of the car...I mean this was one hell of a bird is all I could thing of. And I sat there and waited to see what the hell! was going to happen when suddenly the bird falls to its feet, under the chassey and is EATING the butterfly!. Now, did YOU know birds ate butterflies? Did you? Well, I certainly never knew such a thing. My friend Nicholas said 'yeah, sure, of course I knew that! Well.... what can I say??? So this bird is eating the wings of this butterfly. And I'm wondering what the hell! is going on. I wondered what the meaning of it was. I thought maybe it is saying even birds, the nature beings are participating in the Intelligence of Michael. I mean I just did not know what to think. And then, and then, the next day I was sitting at this red light early in the morning when I noticed this man hanging a banner across this building. Now it was an interesting set up because he did not look comfortable being swung around on this poll. In fact he looked down right scared from his body position. Now I wanted to see how the hell this pole in the air was going to manuever him around this structure sticking out from the building and which he would have to get around in order to finish hanging this banner. So I don't know how the light stayed red this long but it did. And then I saw the pole was backing up instead of going up and over the structure in the way. And the light turned green. Now the light turned green and as my eyes were looking up for so long at that moment in time I happened to turn the corner and look up to my left. And what did i see? I saw this structure, that can only be seen from that one point that I was looking up from, and it was exactly like some portions of the Goetheanum. !!! And then I knew that i was going to be building Goetheanums all across the country! And tehn I had to get my Michaelangelo that is working with me to go and see it. We had to actually park the car and walk up the hillside in order to see it. Whew.
And then this morning it came to me in my sleep I think that we need youth hostels here as well. And I forgot about it until I had seen my roommate with a friend from the Rudolf Steiner Sacramento College who was here for the weekend. And guess what? The kid slept in his car because he didn't want to bother anyone. Whew. And the night before another young man from Portland came down to interview with a school here for Waldorf. And so the idea is born that we need youth hostels. Isn't it funny how things work when one is open to Anthropsoposophia and how the work of Rudolf Steiner on behalf of Archangel Michael, on behalf of Christ, moves in the world? Aint it frieken funny as all hell!
So, anyone want help me do this? :)
All good things,
p.s. Man, I put out a call a few years back for the Round Table and got no takers save Harvey. And so they had to get the invisible ones:)))) to stand with me tall and firm. That's all I can say.

Date: Saturday, May 24, 2008, 10:40 AMThis is wonderfulI often thought about your conference talksand what would happen in the futurebecause you were so begeisteredI am in awe. Yet it had to start somewehreand where better than in the US. It is time!That ia the kind of leading which is supposed to start happening.I would like to know more about it and find outif it would be possible at all to start such an inisiative over hereBut I will contact you on thatengemi
Ah, see Anthroposopohia is in the World Engemi...she is in the world, and now that many have awoken consciously to this sister of Michael as a supersensible being She is able to work even further!
I am about to create little Goetheanums all across the country here. And under the name Elderberies no less. Have you ever heard the legend: Elder be the Ladies tree, cut it down and cursed ye be'? Well the legend goes that Christ was hung on Elder wood. Wonder what that is trying to convey. And then it continues that Judas hung himself on an Elder tree. Problem being that it is a five foot tall bush at most. Interesting.
Elderberries is going to enter into the social of each specific community. It is going to be the ressurenctional force of the community it resides in. Each of these holy places will offer the community a place to come together and create for itself a threefold social order in and of itself that will be the transformed Johannine Community in our time.
The study of Anthroposophia and the conferences etc. help to create a community center in which we can work out of. It is said that in the future there will be communities that Ahriman will not be able to enter. Working with the Foundation Stone Meditation allows us to transform our spirit bodies in right relations to the cosmic world beings and our ongoing evolution. It was Anthroposophia that bespoke that forth at the Christmas Conference of 1923/24. When we realize who we are working with we can be awake to the fact that this supersensible being shows us to our true nature, and ever onwards to Christ.
When we further contemplate where Anthroposophia resides, we realize what this has to do with the new organ of perception.Conferen ce and study groups help us to build the new community around the Being of the community.
All good things,

Hi, Dottie! I am taking the liberty of reposting this one of yours
because for some reason it came through to the group without word
And let me stress the point we have done no less to our innercity
neighborhoods: abandoned them. We took what we wanted and then we
moved on. Not good humanity and definitely not good anthroposophy.
We do not even have to look at the 'third world' countries, we can
look right in our own backyard to see evidence of what occurs when
there are no educational opportunities and no businesses willing to
Did you ever walk in on a Pep Boys at the auto counter? Well let me
tell that man has to suffer such indiginities its not even funny. And
the richer you are the ruder you are. Disgusting. And all for $8. an
hour. That young man has to answer the phone, because most likely its
a hidden employee working to catch them not answering the phone, deal
with ignorant people at the counter wanting their cars fixed
yesterday, and each other. All to make the owners of this company
richer. There is no just compensation for what a man has to offer the
world when they have to be held to such indiginities while the rich
get richer and the poor get poorer.
And that's where Rudolf Steiner's Three Fold Social Order comes in
at. However, we don't have the ability each of us to find a way to
bring this to the greater world as a whole. We need to do this. It is
in the Threefold Social Order that we can make a difference and
create a balance of sorts for man. We are not talking equal because
we all have our trials and tribulations, however we are talking
humane. And for Steiner students I would think we would recognize the
Michaelic Impulse in that gesture.
Detroit, murder capitol of the country. No jobs, no education, no
opportunities. However boy have the casinos moved in and guess who
gets to pay and play: not the ones living on the outskirts that will
never see a dime, not even when they have no other place to build and
start kicking them out of their rundown row homes. Not even then.
How to keep the white man on top is what the name of that article
from the Wallstreet Journal should be called. Don't be accountable
for the ongoing actions of depressing another group of people for
something we started in the first place, and continue in the last
place: using the uneducated as the reason we do so.
We are all going to die. What have you offered that makes your life
having been worthy to those we leave behind? I ain't looking for
your judgements rather I am looking for your love.
All good things,
