Re: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] Re: Nicodemus
Hi Dan, I think if you have a consideration of Ezekial and a looksee therein we might find an interesting element that continues a gesture in the life of Nicodemus. Knowing that Nicodemus was the first in a very special initiation we have to see where we can find the ongoing stream of the past into the future. I do believe we can find this in Ezekial. Or at least that is where my thinking resides at the moment. Ezekial is in the Bible and so maybe you'll get a chance to sit with it.
All good things,
p.s. I will have a looksee at whom you have offered below.

Hi Dottie, I am also interested in this Individuality (Nicodemus) I am not aware of any of R. Steiner's detail about this and i am interested if you can share. Only from my personal research, I can relate Nicodemus to Parmenides (greek philosopher) and who later came into another male incarnation in one of the masters of Renaissance. dan --- In email@example.com, dottie zold <dottie_z@...> wrote: > > Hey Friends, > > I am wondering if anyone has read Rudolf Steiner relating Ezekial to Nicodemus? > > Thanks, > Dottie > ------------------------------------ Yahoo!

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,
