Incarnations Of RS
- The incarnational line of Rudolf Steiner has been published internally
by the anthroposophical society for members and shines a great deal of
light on the emphases he places on various points in this lecture
It is not my intention to dig into such as my work with Anthroposophy,
as is true for many, is a working hypothates and on many points I
cannot claim an "I" experience of the subject matter from a viewpoint
of spiritual perception. I think the work anchored in experience and
practice is much more important than the origins of the line and I
would be wary of exploring the incarnational line of Steiner on an
e-list. It is my thesis the work of Anthroposophy comes first and only
with this perspective should such loftier questions, of interest, but
of little worth without grounding in practicality be asked.

From Path of the Sunflower's Aquarius post:
"The advanced Aquarians seeks to have human beings become not only
citizens of the world but citizens of the cosmic. Aquarius is the
opposite of the royal and kingly sign Leo, in that it fosters
democracy and at the same time,to the dignity of man; this will be the
more apparent the more men will take in and work with the wisdom of
love and the spirit of truth.
"This creative, cosmic sign is ruled by the awakener, Uranus, which
means 'heaven'...It is not surprising, therefore, that Uranus tends to
upset convention and to break up everything rigid and
standardized...It brings completely new orientation."
Looked up meaning of democracy.
"The principles of social equality and respect for the individual
within a community." "The common people, especially as the primary
source of power."
Democratic - believing in or practicing social equality.
Chantel's teacher at Steiner college had info about this topic in his
class notes. Starman shared with us here. Do not understand the
secrecy. My ex-husband taught me to explore motivation behind "self-
interest" in any situation.
Know from my study of Cayce that he was not told til later in life
that in an earlier life he was responsible for writing most of the
Gospel of Luke and that he was not told earlier since he might've had
his ego inflated with this news.(I've read Dr. Steiner's Luke material
and noted his comment about how Luke was a physician. Struggle to
reconcile why he did not detail exactly like Cayce - but sufficient
that noted unique consciousness of Luke. I'm not opening door of who
is right, trance process, etc)
Have no idea what particulars are with this internal secrecy, whatever
the full scope is. Can see where information would be of value for
those of us interested in work of this spiritual giant.
Cayce gave much about how the soul learns the most through suffering.
Wonder what elements of Steiner's other lives have the inner circle so
Think we could all benefit from Dr. Steiner's example and would find
it INSTRUCTIVE as we strive to work with the wisdom of love and the
spirit of truth. If they (that knowledge of earlier undisclosed lives)
shine so much light, why are others kept in the dark? New orientation
may be needed. That does not mean it will happen. NINA
- If I may apologise here for my spelling mistake in my last post under
Aquarius and the messy layout - I didn't delete the above post and it's
a bit untidy. Sorry for the spelling mistake again : DESTINY.
Also, I can hear what Brian is saying. It is related to the Dweller on
the Threshold. To protect one from oneself within that is. The Tarot
card the Hermit relates to this subject.
There is a message of a New Age to be told yes however at the same time
delving into the spirit world unprepared is not for the faint-hearted -
Or is it not? A tough subject to discuss .. maybe.
Just my thoughts on it.

To me, all spiritual science educational material aims to help us
proceed and understand. It is not for the faint-hearted!
Question a "revelation selection process" that is reluctant to
identify the educational soul path that Dr. Steiner himself had
revealed had been his own.(my assumption)
How can we build on the work of this giant without this? Yes, well
understand the role of personal experience in spiritual development.
(St. Bernard comes to mind).
Find it of practical importance. Selection carries the feeling of
manipulation and control,for whatever "the reasons".
Have "Sheer Joy" by Matthew Fox and look forward to reading about
Thomas Aquinas. It is with that same spirit that I would research any
other lives, as would I'm sure, Chantel, Starman, and you. NINA
- Hi Nina
Yes you are right, for the light shines into the dark to bring hidden
things into the light. And if it is hidden it cannot healthy or happy
for that matter.
The Hermit card and other closed sources must relate to the inquistion
period and possibly this needs overcoming as well as understanding the
dweller on the threshold is ones etheric body.
It is the spirit of Joy which over rides any obstacles that may be
placed in the road.

Will keep the above in mind. Thank-you. Can count on you to always
offer the best that you know. NINA
- Dearest Nina
Thank you and same with you love.
It's seems to be no coincidence we are talking about things in hiding
when looking at this weeks Soul Calendar.
