Re: [anthroposophy_tomorrow] Re: The Twelve around Christ
- I have those lectures by Emil Bock, someone gave them to me a few years back. I copied them and sent them to a few people on list as well, whew, it was a very long process to say the least!
I hear you on the planetary expereinces but there is something about the Christ incarnating into the Nathan Jesus, and that moment in time that is the height of the human experience that holds so much meaning to me as a spirit being in the human/physical world incarnating until the time when it will be a different mannerism of birthing.
If we consider it as an imagination, and a real happening within our own sheaths, wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll let me tell you, whew, well words just cannot convey I think
"If there is something more powerful than destiny, this must be the human being who bears destiny unshaken." Rudolf Steiner

Date: Tuesday, February 3, 2009, 11:06 AMDear Dottie,
One of the best on line references are:
Later still, in the fourth post-Atlantean epoch, we can see in Hellenism a reflection of planetary spirits who had as it were come into existence because the Being who had been permeated by the Christ journeyed from planet to planet and on each planet became one or other of these spirits. On Jupiter he became the one whom the Greeks later called Zeus; on Mars, the one later called Ares; on Mercury, the one later called Hermes. In the Greek planetary gods there was this later reflection of what Christ Jesus in the supersensible worlds had made of the planetary beings who were imbued with the Luciferic and Ahrimanic principles. When a Greek looked up to his heaven of the gods, he came into touch with the adumbrations, the reflections, of the activity of Christ Jesus on the individual planets, together with much else that I have described.From Christ and the Spiritual World: The Search for the Holy Grail, THIRD LECTURE : DECEMBER 30, 1913.
But Emil Bock tells about this being with details that Steiner don't give in his public lessons. And he talks about the New Æon.

> One of the few authors who elaborates on Steiner and gives something extra is Emil Bock. He has witten 25 socalled unpublished lectures about the Gospels (I have a Danish version.) In chapter 17 he talks about the new Æon (New Cosmic Principle?). In Chapter 24 he talks about the Nathanic Jesus. Worth reading, as Steiner only vaguely describes the being. Many Anthros thinks it is a weak untouched spirit from before man split in two sexes. But it's much much more than that.
> Kind Regards,
I ever find your posts, 5 years of experience now! I'd love to go, last time I was there they still had the towers, long time no apple.
