Well, there is the other snake by the woman, and it is looking at the children, one at us and the other at the children...can you see what is standing between, on the wall, Joseph and his wife? d"Hence only by means of love can we give real help for karma to work out in the right way."

It's a wonderful story, but as Boaz is the left pillar he should be Christian Rosenkreutz (who were the Spanish rider, i think) and Rudolf Steiner should be Joachim. It's quite interesting that it's the woman who are the karmic force in many of the stories of the OT, both here and as Abrahams and Isac's wifes.II Chronicles 3:15-17
Also he made before the House two pillars of thirty and five cubits in heights and the chapiter that was on the top of each of them was made five cubits. And he made chains, as in the oracle, and put them on the heads of the pillars, and made an hundred pomegranates, and put them on the chains. And he reared up the pillars before the Temple, one on the right hand, and the other on the left; and called the name of that on the right hand "Jachin", and the name of that on the left he called "Boaz".
From THOSE MYSTERIOUS PILLARS : BOAZ and JACHIN
From "Cosmic Sophia, and Human Anthroposophia" by Adriana Koulias:Rudolf Steiner once characterized his relationship to Christian Rosenkreutz thus: a supersensible altar in the spiritual world and beside it on the left stands Christian Rosenkreutz in a blue stole and on the right, Rudolf Steiner in a red stole. These are the garments, blue and red of the Mary Sophia.36 Think of Raphael' Sistine Madonna. She wears a cloak, a Palla that is blue and red. This is indicative of the Blue Blood and Red Blood – the Joachim and Boaz, and points to the future thinking heart in which an Etherisation of the blood will take place which is the result of the unification of thinking (blue) and feeling (red) through the light of the Holy spirit that in man is the Spirit Self.

Dato: torsdag 1. juli 2010 00.47Oh oh oh...yes I forgot...I was reminded of or inspired to consider Ms. Wegmen and Rudolf Steiner as Ruth and Boaz. ....and look at this most curiously painted Joseph of many colors...does he not remind you of that man on a horse on the ridge of the Goethean...or the Polish Rider....and look its actually a halo or something around the face of Josephs' wife:And I was thinking .........oh boy what was I thinking:) ....I was thinking that......that. ....oh, I was thinking that isn't it interesting that one who was persecuting the Christians, just as Judas betrayed the Christ, would be one who was the heir ....d"Hence only by means of love can we give real help for karma to work out in the right way."

Date: Wednesday, June 30, 2010, 3:15 PMHi Friends, I have been reading St. Paul for a few weeks now and I found myself knocking at Rembrandt's door curiously. I went to purchase a book and didn't realize I did not have enough money for my $20 purchase of a sketch board for Elderberries along with some plates etc and had to put back a book I wanted to purchase that had jumped out at me, Rembrandt's Sketches. As i went to put it back I heard the salesman hollar to another 'the young lady has $24 and the price is $25', (this did not include the $3 for the book) and the other person hollared back 'that is fine'. I showed him the book was not a part of that gift transaction and he smiled so beautifully at me and handed it to me. :) so I come home with this interesting book.Below we have an interesting self portrait of Mr. Rembrandt as Saint Paul.Now, in this sketch book I also come to some inspirations that I did not intend to do and I was kinda surprised one by one these connections kept coming up for me....I mean I have for years been wondering and contemplating on things but as I looked at these paintings, just like with Da Vinci's I feel like I see their secrets. For example, in Rembrandts sketches and paintings I find he has hidden hebrew letters and also numbers. I do not know if anyone knows this. They are clear as a bell for me. He has hidden so much which is why or because of what he has found in Da Vinci's paintings. He was a rebel as much as Da Vinci was.Now, interestingly enough as well, we have to consider why this man would paint himself as St. Paul. Not only that but we have to consider who really took Judas' place: it was St. Paul. This was the one chosen by the Lord, not the one chosen by the disciples. This man St. Paul was chosen. And as Peter was the one chosen for the jews, Paul was chosen for the gentiles.And that last sentence is what led me to wonder who was Peter and Paul in the Old Testament. In fact, who were the disciples throughout history...we really never talk about that or really contemplate that deeper. Well, I think I have found maybe a little clue to Peter and Paul:Now, look at the wife also, very interesting face, veil actually.And, now look below, we have Aristotle considering a bust of Homer. What the heck is this saying....I have to say that Paul is deeply connected to Paul. And of course we wouldn't expect anything else would we with a man known as the closest of all to the Christ Consciousness as Rudolf Steiner, and the first in full consciousness, different from that of Lazarus at the time, with Paul.
Now, who is Homer:) Gotta run, d
