St. Gallen lectures, and feel the second of those two
to be the most informative regarding the Double. This
doesn't detract from the first, however, which is also
amazing! Now I'll have to scrounge to see about the
others in this series! It seems to me that more and
more often I find "rearranged series" of lectures, and
that keeps us on our toes!

rhythm VS. routine question...
I am a typically a lurker but I had an interesting conversation this evening that I would like some feedback on.Basically it started as strengthening the will forces.My take being that through rhythm (among other things) this is possible.The argument then went somewhat Castaneda as far as "routine" being binding and therefore rendering one inflexible.
This may seem at first glance to be semantics but i would still appreciate input.I should also point out that I (like many others) have come to Steiner through Waldorf education.I have a mothers perspective but believe that with my attempt to establish rhythm in the household we have all benefited.Thank you for any input.
*******I would say it's a question of consciousness and whether a pattern is internally or externally motivated. If we follow routines imposed on us by our society, our jobs, etc., we become like robots. But when we choose to take up a sequence of actions voluntarily that nothing compels us to do----like meditating regularly or doing things to celebrate the festivals/seasons, or anything that the external world doesn't impose----then we gradually establish a rythm which we have CHOSEN to establish. That's not a robotic routine but rather an ordering of the etheric body.
The rythmic system, the middle one, is the weak link in modern-day man. This is why our thinking pole and willing pole are so easily disconnected. Anything done to consciously establish rythms is healthful.

here...what's your take the way Steiner uses the term 'moral impressions'?
- Hi all, I am new to the list and was going back through some of the
posts to see what I could learn and saw this discussion of what
Steiner means by moral impressions or moral feelings. The following
is from his primer How to Know Higher Worlds where he addresses this
"Just as the sun's rays vivify everything living, so does reverence
in the student vivify all feelings of the soul. It is not easy, at
first, to believe that feelings like reverence and respect have
anything to do with cognition. This is due to the fact that we are
inclined to set cognition aside as a faculty by itself one that
stands in no relation to what otherwise occurs in the soul. In so
thinking we do not bear in mind that it is the soul which exercises
the faculty of cognition; and feelings are for the soul what food is
for the body. If we give the body stones in place of bread, its
activity will cease. It is the same with the soul. Veneration,
homage, devotion are like nutriment making it healthy and strong,
especially strong for the activity of cognition. Disrespect,
antipathy, underestimation of what deserves recognition, all exert a
paralyzing and withering effect on this faculty of cognition. For
the spiritually experienced this fact is visible in the aura. A soul
which harbors feelings of reverence and devotion produces a change
in its aura. Certain spiritual colorings, as they may be called,
yellow-red and brown-red in tone, vanish and are replaced by blue-
red tints. Thereby the cognitional faculty is ripened; it receives
intelligence of facts in its environment of which it had hitherto no
idea. Reverence awakens in the soul a sympathetic power through
which we attract qualities in the beings around us, which would
otherwise remain concealed."
"If the attention be frequently fixed on the phenomena of growing,
blooming and flourishing, a feeling remotely allied to the sensation
of a sunrise will ensue, while the phenomena of fading and decaying
will produce an experience comparable, in the same way, to the slow
rising of the moon on the horizon. Both these feelings are forces
which, when duly cultivated and developed to ever increasing
intensity, lead to the most significant spiritual results. A new
world is opened to the student if he systematically and deliberately
surrenders himself to such feelings. The soul-world, the so-called
astral plane, begins to dawn upon him."
I'm happy to find this list and hope to have some enlivening
discussions about Steiner with you all.
