Re: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] Re: ABOUT KARMIC STREAMS.
- Dear DottyAbout racial prudery - whatever that meansI think I hear you crying for accountability in a big way,and in that I would like to support you.But while reading your posts, I thought about Lievegoeds last book,which I've been reading for the 4th time: THE BATTLE FOR THE SOULI wondered if there was ever a discussion on these pages about this eminent book?I'm talking discussion, not random thoughts and definitely not arguementsabout Liefegoed's thoughts - as these were his own Just a discussion of the bookand the ways we look at the three karmic streams or groups.Since I've been busy with my own thoughts on this and connected matters,I tried to recognise the different streams in people around meand noticed a certain kind of distance between some.Almost as L. spoke about the "fierce differences of opinion" between peoplebelonging in the different groups and the "conflicts that manifested themselvesin the Anthroposophical Society After Rudolf Steiner's death"; (Chapter 1, page 20)He told Jelle v d Meulen how Steiner posed the question to a group of young peopleamongst whom he, Lievegoed, evidently must have been: "I expect that in three months,when we meet again, you wil know in which spiritual stream you all stand." And the questwhich this question left to them, how in the ensuing years this became a life task for L.But I'm sure you all read the book. Just wanted to know if its ever been discussed while I was goneIf not maybe now? Like serious?engemi
Ooops it should say " without her nothing moves, as we are dealing with the fallen Sophia'.

Subject: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] The Feet
Date: Tuesday, June 10, 2008, 12:14 PM
I have wondered for years why it is that they said the 'feet' represented the sexual organ. Well, it is said the Hebrews say this. And of course we always see, just about always, the Magdalene at the feet of Jesus on the Cross. Always at the feet. And the other Mary usually at the head. When there are three they are positioned head hand feet.
Today I realized when contemplating again on the Kaballah, that we have the feet, which is also mentioned in the bible as 'take your shoes of you are on Holy Ground'. Now I have considered all of this before but it just suddenly hit home that the 'feet' is the body of the Tree of Life. And we are looking at the Root Chakra, what is often considered the sexual chakra, yet in a higher sense we are dealing with 'creativity'.
So we know the Magdalene represents the Malkuth, the root chakra, and without her nothing has to deal with the fallen Sophia.
But I just thought it interesting to consider why the feet were considered by the Hebrews to respresent the sexual organ! Now we know, it was their mystery teachings.
All good things,
