lectures Steiner gave in Cologne Dec 28, 29, 30 and 31, 1912 and
January 1, 1913. My copy is the 1945 edition. As with all of
Steiner's teachings these lectures are all-encompassing, bringing
seemingly isolated and diverse time-spans and events into a Whole
with a resulting meld illustrating the cohesiveness of mankind's
evolution upon Earth as well as in the Spiritual World. These
resulting panoramic truths are beyond my ability to consense. I would
hope one would be stimulated to ponder through these lectures as we
must ponder our way through all of Steiner's work in order to
hopefully reach some understanding of Anthroposophy itself.

Hi Sheila and everyone
Thanks for your reply Sheila, also please excuse my spelling mistake
of Bhagavad! I am such a westerner and I recall Steiner saying 'when
westerner's wear easterner clothes -they look out of place'!
I have been thinking- is it coincidential Steiner lectured on the
Bhagavad Gita and St Paul? Could it be St Paul experiencing the
thunderbolt of light on the road to Damascus?
Thanks for your posts Sheila, nice to read.
Hello again, Caryn and All List Members,
Your postings, Caryn, are always full of interest, for which I am very
glad, as well as for your healthy open ponderings. I must bow to the wise council of those far more knowledgeable than I for any attempt to respond to your excellent wonderings as outlined above other than to surmise nothing Steiner spoke of could have ever been coincidental.
Unless I am mistaken, Paul's experience on the road to Damascus is to be found in Steiner's "The Background to the Gospel of St. Matthew" but I am not certain.
I do hope this may have been of some help to you, Caryn.
Blessings to All,
