Wasn't sure you were still around, but I am glad that you are. Last time
I thought you said you would be devoting your time to other matters.
In regards to a Steiner lecture that was read the other day, it was
mentioned that the spiritual thoughts of humans are recorded in the Akasha.
What do you think constitutes spiritual thought?
"What a man acquires in the way of occult knowledge lives not only in
his soul but is inscribed into the Akasha-substance of the world. When
we make a thought of occult science come alive in our souls, it is at
once inscribed into the Akasha-substance and this is of significance for
the general evolution of the world. For no being in the whole world
other than man is able to make in the Akasha-substance the inscriptions
that can be called by the name of Occult Science.
It is important to bear in mind one characteristic feature of the
Akasha-substance, namely that in the spiritual world between death and a
new birth, man lives in this substance, just as here on the earth he
lives in the atmosphere."
Also, we are warned not think of the spiritual as a very fine or wispy
material substance. But here he is saying that the Akasha is substance.
Any thoughts? Can anyone expand on this to help me understand?
