Re: [steiner] Digest Number 573
- Dear Sarah,
WOW! I really want to thank you for the MRA information and you're right
about the web site. I didn't have time to read it as thoroughly as I intend
to ASAP, but it certainly seems to go along with truly great concepts! I
wonder if the Quakers are into it as well, even though Buchman apparently
wasn't a Quaker at all. Didn't Steiner say something about the Quakers
being the closest to Anthroposophy in their love and practices? I'll look
into it more, and especially about the Forgiveness Factor the entire world
might take to heart, and it seems to me it could well apply to the Epic of
Gilgamesh with Ishtar's role which Steiner mentioned so often. He may have
mentioned it in his "Gospel of St. Matthew," which I'm trying to digest bit
by bit - AGAIN! :) Thanks, Gal! And besides all that coming as a Gift, I
was happy to hear from you down there in beautiful Perth in the gorgeous
land of OZ! I doubt that little tyke is so little any longer! Do you still
have your web site?
