How are we connected to the world around us? This question, says Rudolf Steiner, is one that lives subliminally, drawing us into the depths of the psyche. There, our candle of consciousness tends to flicker and go out. But spiritual schooling can relight it, so that we learn to perceive realms of our being beyond the restricted self.

 

Rudolf Steiner was undertaking major lecture tours of Germany and England, but he managed to take the time to address his followers at the world center of Anthroposophy in Dornach, Switzerland. He spoke there on three major topics: “The Life of the Human Soul”; “Spiritual Striving in Relation to Earth Evolution”; and “The Contrast between East and West.” The common theme is our mutual responsibility for what human beings and the the Earth eventually become, which, according to Steiner, is far from a foregone conclusion. Even the way we think can change and affect the future―for example, the degree to which we concentrate our images in meditation and infuse head thinking with heart warmth.

 

Steiner reveals a hugely complex picture of interrelationships between humanity and the cosmos. Our head, heart, lungs, and limbs all reveal subtly different qualities of connection with the invisible realities that continue to sustain us. Our eyes, for instance, evolved only gradually into organs of sight and were once vital organs, as our lungs are now. The lungs, in turn, will similarly evolve to provide us with another form of perception.

 

As usual, Steiner addresses a wide variety of topics in addition to those mentioned, including his thoughts on cinema; the nature of the “halo”; technology as the “true foundation” of the modern worldview; asceticism in the Middle Ages; machines and religious ceremony; yoga and modern meditation exercises; pain as an stimulator of knowledge; belief in ghosts; and the connection between stomach acid and soul qualities.
