Re: [steiner] Re: peach-blossom color - training
- Dear Micheline,
It seems to me each one of those of us searching from within Anthroposophy
are led to various
Steiner works, each according to what we seem to need. For me, I gained
most of all on my beginning
pathway through Steiner's "Knowledge of Higher Worlds and its Attainment".
It is crammed full of exercises
as is "Occult Science", while others have mentioned "Theosophy" and/or
"Philosopohy of Freedom" ["Philosophy of Spiritual Activity"] met their
own personal development best. These are the so-called Basic Books,
Micheline, and I would personally also add your "Guidance in Esoteric
Training" as well. Besdies these I've mentioned, I gained very much later
on from "Threshold of the Spiritual World" and "A Path to Self Knowledge"
and it just seems to me each one of us more or less approaches what is
needed by oneself from varying directions. I realize I'm not being very
helpful listing so many Basic Books, and others may have better insight
than I. "Knowledge of Higher Worlds..." is, to me, a conversation of sorts
between Steiner and myself, as though he took me by the hand and guided me
in freedom. The online elibrary did have free downloads of most of these
Basic Books, if not all, and that may be a thought, too.

- I believe there is a description of this color in a
published collection of some of his lectures on color.
As I recall, it is described approximately as the
color achieved when a red light shines on an ever
undulating field of black and white.

Do you Yahoo!?
SBC Yahoo! - Internet access at a great low price.
- Thank you Sheila,
I first got acquainted with Steiner's works maybe 10-15 years ago.
Finally, I thought, someone who can explain in clear, comprehending
I discontinued for a while, exploring other avenues, but now I have
come back to Steiner.
It's like now, I read him with a new level of comprehension,
perspective, like before, I grasped intellectually mostly, but now,
it is as if it is enlightening more of me, I get more substance, a
deeper level of understanding, and have now started trying to adjust
my exterior behavior accordingly, from this new perspective, this
new level of apprehension/understanding: that does not come easily,
nor often, and only for brief periods of time: but the richness that
it adds to life compels me to study ever more the system of
Anthroposophy. I have started practicing some of the exercises: like
the one just before sleeping, the retrospective. I will try soon to
add the meditations
Does a phonetic version of the 8 meditations (in german) exists?
Do you yourself practice?
I have reread parts of 'Occult Science' with a much greater
focus/attention and have gained in insight, particularly Cosmology.
Try not to be taken aback by my personalised way of using the
english language, my mother tongue is french. (or spelling!)
My best to you,
