The Sting of Advent
Rudolf Steiner also describes this rebellion in Occult Science: An Outline & from another perspective in, The Spiritual Hierarchies and their Reflection in the Physical World: “Beings from the sphere of the Mights (Dynamis), to put it tritely, were detached; they were placed in the course of evolution so as to bring about obstacles instead of acting as progressive influences. We have come to know this as the War in Heaven….[later in Lemurian times]..The beings who stayed behind, whom we call Luciferic beings approached the human astral body –they were unable to reach the “I” – and injected into the astral body the results of the War in Heaven…humans now had been given the possibility of error and evil, but at the same time also received the capacity to rise above error and evil through their own strength…Thus we can see that only because the Dynamis were given adverse orders did humans receive the possibility of reaching their goal by means of their own powers, something that even the Seraphim cannot attain through their own endeavors. That is the crucial fact…Humans have to fulfill a completely new mission in the world, the mission we have just characterized, and  descended into the earthly world in order to accomplish it.  Christ came into the world as man’s free helper; not as a God working from above, but as the first-born among many.” The Christian Community homily for this week speaks of this turbulent time: 1st Advent – Luke 21:25-36 “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth, the nations will be constricted with anxiety and doubt with the advent of these spiritual revelations, as before a roaring sea and waves. And men will lose their inner strength of soul out of fear and foreboding of what is coming over the living earth: for the dynamic powers of heaven will be shaken. And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud, in the sphere of life, with dynamic power and great radiant glory. And when these things begin to happen, stand upright and lift up [raise] your soul to the spirit, for your deliverance draws near. And he gave them a comparison, saying, ‘Observe [behold] the fig-tree and all the trees when they burst into leaf. Seeing this, you know yourselves that summer is near. So also when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Amen, the truth I say to you: this present age of Man’s being shall not pass away until all has happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.Guard yourselves lest the perceptive power of your hearts be smothered by an excess of food and drink and by over-concern with the cares and worries of life, and the light of these spirit events break upon you suddenly like a snare…for it will come upon all who dwell upon the face of the whole earth. So be awake in the spirit at all times, praying, so that you may have the strength to live through all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man”.

Personal Potion
Dear friends – There are so many ways to look at life; it can be super simple or profoundly complicated. Today I was thinking, that the way to thrive is by becoming a mix between a mish-mash & a medley – part hodgepodge & part amalgamation of all the finest virtues our collective experience has garnered. The best elixir will result from embracing the simple AND the complicated, mixing several different potions derived from our highest intentions & letting it ferment into a potentized medicine, which will only work from the inside out. Yes, our strongest impact, our true cure, will come from blending our most diverse effects together to create a freshly refined reality, where the human being is Holy.   When you think about it, the human being is a divine wonder. Our bodies, for one thing, are miraculous, able to adapt & recreate itself every 7 years. In fact it’s mind blowing to try to even contemplate the metabolic system. I marvel at the fact that the hydrochloric acid in our digestive system is so corrosive it can dissolve a nail. In other words, we contain within us the power to dematerialize solid metal. Why is it so hard, then, for us to conceive of the possibility that we can vaporize a virus with our immaculately conceived immune systems, or stand up to those that would enslave us? Friends, the power of the highest hierarchies live in our limbs, waiting for us to active them with our will to reclaim our divine birthright as spiritual beings. What would it be like to imagine that all the fear & doubt & hatred designed to confuse us & make us forget who we really are, are really just rusty nails – & that we are dropping them into a vat of spiritually charged hydrochloric acid. Ha – if we come back every day & revisit this vision – we can watch the nails steadily dissolve. As they yield to our power, we tame & embrace their forces, extracting the iron to fortify our resolve for revolution.   ~hag

What's on the table?
Yep, we need a holy day to remember to Give Thanks. Gratitude is more than just a hallmark catchphrase. It’s a way of life; an attitude, a habit that we have to train ourselves to practice so we can build up our appreciation like a muscle. And what I’m finding is that it may actually change the perception of my well-being. Our family’s tradition is to go to China Town for our Thanksgiving meal, since I always make a big homemade feast for our daughter’s birthday earlier that same week. When our girl was younger we would invite her whole Waldorf class over for Sukkoth & that was our community Thanksgiving. This year we went to meet some old friends who have also taken up this tradition. On the way to the restaurant I tumbled off the curb & rolled my bad ankle – my foot is swollen to high heaven. I had to sit there on the ground for a bit with the dizzying pain like the wrath of shooting stars catching my breath…dang…What’s that all about…? When I’m feeling overwhelmed by my various health issues, compounded by the current world situation with all the vicissitudes it has brought to our sense of reality, I have to just take a breath & thank my lucky stars that I can apply Spiritual Science to my heart-thinking. And I remember that this is the ultimate testing ground, where we all agreed to meet. Our ‘truth or dare’ stage where discernment, equanimity, love, reverence/wonder, hope, & the power of peace must come into play. I know sometimes it feels like we are hell-bent on heading straight into the abyss – I often find myself staring straight into the dragon’s eye – & it’s all too easy to get freaked out & discouraged – to spiral into the negative, cynical scenarios. Naming the shadow has its time & place, but if it pulls us too deep into discord or depression, this shrinks our heart-health, bringing more inflammation & a weaker immune system – eclipsing the veracity of our collective power which we can access with every positive, thanks-giving, visualization.  So how can I turn this pain & forced slowdown into a gratitude moment…Well, I will have to work that thru won’t I…? I have a chance to apply gratitude like medicine – a tonic & remedy for everything that ails me. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. An opportunity to let go of the personal pain to see it as a reflection of the pain of the world. Together we set the table for a feast of healing. See you there ~hag

Research Eclipsed
‘the macrocosmic Lord's Prayer’ AUM, Amen! The evil holds sway. Witness of the ‘I’ severed Selfhood guilt through others incurred Experienced in the daily bread. In which heaven's will is not being done, For man deserted your kingdom, And forgot your names, O You fathers in the heavens. In Grosse’s book he reports how Steiner spoke it at the laying of the Foundation Stone in the Dornach Hill on 20 September 1913. And it was during those Holy Nights that Steiner gave insights for the 1sttime about the Epic of Gilgamesh. As on offset I also spoke The Lord's Prayer as Prayed by Rudolf Steiner: Father, you who are, were and will be in our inmost being May Your Name be glorified and praised in us May Your Kingdom grow in our deeds and inmost lives May we perform Your Will as You, Father, lay it down in our inmost being You give us spiritual nourishment, the Bread of Life, super abundantly In all the changing conditions of our lives. Let our mercy toward others make up for the sins done to our being. You do not allow the tempter to work in us beyond the capacity of our strength, For no temptation can live in Your Being, Father, And the tempter is only appearance and delusion From which you lead us, Father, through the light of knowledge. May Your power and glory work in us through all periods and ages of time. The Lord’s Prayer translated from Aramaic O cosmic Birther of all radiance and vibration. Soften the ground of our being and carve out a space within us where your Presence can abide. Fill us with your creativity so that we may be empowered to bear the fruit of your mission. Let each of our actions bear fruit in accordance with our desire. Endow us with the wisdom to produce and share what each being needs to grow and flourish. Untie the tangled threads of destiny that bind us, as we release others from the entanglement of past mistakes. Do not let us be seduced by that which would divert us from our true purpose, but illuminate the opportunities of the present moment. For you are the ground and the fruitful vision, the birth, power and fulfillment, as all is gathered and made whole once again.

RUDOLF STEINER’S CALENDAR OF THE SOUL translated (with added titles) by Roy Sadler ALL HALLOWTIDE III World Nemesis? Or Resurrection… v33 (the Ahrimanic deception) And so I come to feel the world, which left without my soul’s communion would be just frosty, empty life and powerless to resurrect in souls, wherein it could arise anew in self-creation, would in itself alone find only death. This is one of the 4 transition verses in the Soul Calendar’s square quartet. Each one is a challenge, facing us with a new step we must take as we transition into a new season. This is a quote from Eloise Krivosheia in (with inspiration from her sister in the spiritual world). ‘The creation of the world by the gods is complete. Future world creation/transformation requires the conscious participation of human beings. We want to undersdtand how human soul destiny is united with the destiny of the world. Christ gave us the power to build ourselves and in this we can save Earth from death. We can build what we have taken in in the summer, but without our consciousness and our soul forces creating new self substance (as in verse 32) Earth is bereft, unable to rebuild/transform itself. In line 5 we intuit how Earth will feel life anew in human souls who creating self anew are what will bring resurrection for Earth itself. Without such human work on the self, death can only result.’

POD (Poem Of the Day)
November 10, 2021
Water Be like Water: “Water is sometimes sharp and sometimes strong, sometimes acid and sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet and sometimes thick or thin, sometimes it is seen bringing hurt or pestilence, sometime health-giving, sometimes poisonous. It allows change into as many natures as are the different places through which it passes. And as the mirror changes with the colour of its subject, so it alters with the nature of the place, becoming noisome, laxative, astringent, sulfurous, salty, incarnadined, mournful, raging, angry, red, yellow, green, black, blue, greasy, fat or slim. Sometimes it starts a conflagration, sometimes it extinguishes one; is warm and is cold, carries away or sets down, hollows out or builds up, tears or establishes, fills or empties, raises itself or burrows down, speeds or is still; is the cause at times of life or death, or increase or privation, nourishes at times and at others does the contrary; at times has a tang, at times is without savor, sometimes submerging the valleys with great floods. In time and with water, everything changes” ~Leonardo da Vinci "She focused on the words: “He gives moisture to the dead.” It was a gift to the shadow world – tears. They would be sacred beyond a doubt. Nothing on this planet had so forcefully hammered into here the ultimate value of water. Not the water-sellers, not the dried skins of the natives, nor the stillsuits or the rules of water discipline. Here there was a substance more precious than all others – it was life itself and entwined all around with symbolism and ritual. Water reflects the truth" from Dune ~Frank Herbert

History & some thoughts 
November 10, 2021
Dear friends – I have been connecting the synchronistic dots that are like nourishing breadcrumbs on the path - affirming the work of the 10:10 Thought-Seed – a mediation every day at 10:10 AM/PM, co-creating an imagination of the ‘Earth Becoming a Sun’ - that many of us have been holding since around this time last year. If you haven’t yet tuned in, it was my 1st offerings for the ‘I Think Speech’ podcast: Thought-Experiment– Egregore– Project Thought-Seed – The 10:10 How to. In the evolution of humanity thru the Christ impulse, the seed for the future spiritualization of the Earth was planted. We are given a clue in the appearance spoken about in Mark 14:51-52, of the mysterious 'young man' whose outer garment is pulled away in the garden of Gethsemane at the arrest - the commandment of Christ's sacrificial deed. This is an unveiling of the future cosmic process in which the human being, as well as the Earth Being Herself, will gradually completely spiritualize our physical aspects - allowing us to be transformed into a New Sun. A friend wrote me the other day talking about a study conducted by German researchers at the University of Kassel showing that the area around the heart of an average person emits about 20 photons of light per second. A person who meditates from their heart center, sending love & light to others - emits an amazing 100,000 photons per second. That’s 5000 times more than the average human being. Numerous studies have shown that when these photons are infused with a loving & healing intent, their frequency & vibration increases to the point where they can literally change matter, heal disease, & transform negative events. The Heart also loves, feels, thinks & remembers - communicating with other hearts. Pulsing continuously - each beat throbbing with impressions - which we must control thru our right thinking - moving them thru every organ of our body & out into the etheric, & astral realms we all share. It is far more full & beautiful than what modern science would have us believe. A beyond the cellular symphony that is the very essence of our being - it is a magnetic & radiating vortex – a tool of human evolution, in the creation of the New Sun of the New Jerusalem. Cresting in heart-thought with you… ~hag

In thinking what we three (Angela Foster, Timothy Kennedy & me) would offer to the Sophia Community Circle for November, it fell together that we would write a love poem to Sophia. From ~hag: When does the past Become the present? ~When the outside is within~ When does the poem Become a song? ~When the Virgin is free & fruitful~ And in the Speaking? Do the Stars move Us toward the future? ~Only when the riddle key unlocks a world Whitsun~ And in the Standing Between thinking & willing Can the spark of feeling Feed the font of Wisdom wrested ? ~Only when the Mother has washed the 7 veils into white garments~ Then Becomes Love Unbound… Homebound “on the boats of spirit-knowledge To awaken in human souls Isis-Sophia Wisdom of God”. I am writing a love poem for my Sophia. The 3 into 1 ~hag Am I a body In you Sculpting a grand canyon An outer shell easily removed With the art of living..? Your gravity calls. And in the standing I set out A walking ocean Sister-sized Smooth & butter-colored Split stillness Water-fall tossed Vast & never far away. What is your Will..? Is there room For wind & weaving in the dark – A riddle ripple in mediating rhythm Listening For the reflection Of humble stars & tragic paradoxes of Love..? Feed the font of Wisdom wrested Surrendering color to the light. Sing the sonnet of Spirit-Self - To wash the 7 veils white Be - Coming I pray Let my stream Of-consciousness bee Poem enough. I am - A waterfall - In gravity - Unbound - Homebound Becoming Will A Love poem - To Sophia

Land Trust Now Dear friends – On Saturday, 10/23/2021, we had the first community meeting at the Zinniker Farm.  The 12 of us, some local, some from WI, some from Chicago, were greeted by a perfect fall day, a choir of birds, cool weather, bright sunshine, Hazel’s famous spice cake and a bonfire! After we went around and introduced ourselves, Markus gave a brief history of the Zinniker Family Farm and he asked some very relevant questions that we are faced with today. (link to video) The conversation was lively and we came away with warmth of community and our first steps forward. We decided to form a core group to work with Petra and Mark.  The short-term goal is to get a real understanding of a sustainable budget that includes everything!  After all, how can the farm thrive into the future unless we understand the economics. After we understand the needs, how will we come around the farm as a supportive community to share the bounty of the land – and take the risks of farming off the farmer. It addresses a statement posed by Mark, “the hardest thing for a farm to produce is community value” At the meeting, Jessica Fuchs, Robert Karp, Hazel and Chuck Ginsberg volunteered to be on the core group.  If you have an interest in getting involved, please contact ‘Family Farm Initiative’ We welcome your help! We added the first video from this meeting to the Patreon page: Please show your support by giving what you can, & by sharing this link. We’ll be sending out more videos & emails over the next couple of weeks. We are happy to have you as part of our community as we reimagine our relationship to the Earth and our food. Best, Chuck Ginsberg & Hazel Archer

Comets Calling
5 things you need to know about the Orionid meteor shower: The meteors are actually debris from the Comet Halley – The Comet Halley hasn’t paid Earth a visit since 1986, but pieces of the famous space rock still show up every fall. Each year, around October 20-22, our planet intersects with the comet’s orbit, according to Earth Sky. Pieces of Halley disintegrate in Earth’s upper atmosphere nearly 60 miles above the planet’s surface, but not before creating quite the spectacle for those down below. Let’s be honest, watching this thing is a commitment. Experts agree that the shower will take place before dawn on October 21 or 22, but can’t pinpoint an exact date. 10-20 Meteors Could Fall Each Hour – The Orionid Meteor Shower is a “modest shower.” That means you won’t see a constant stream of glowing rocks plummeting toward Earth at any given moment. Don’t let that fool you. Those watching from dark or rural locations will still have a front row seat for the kind of spectacle that only comes from space. …And They’ll Be Traveling At 41 Miles Per Second – You read that right. 41 miles per second. These rocks are literally scorching across the sky as they enter Earth’s atmosphere. Roughly half of these blazing fast meteors will leave gas trails behind them that are visible for a few seconds after the meteor is gone. From. Every. Direction.- The Orionids flying from the sky this month are named after the constellation Orion, where they appear to radiate. The thing is, these meteors generally aren’t visible until they’re at least 30 degrees from that radiant point. This means they can appear any & everywhere in the night sky. If watching with a party, focus on different areas of the night sky & be sure to call out the meteors as you see them.

Be a Myth Maker
“…Myth is the secret opening through which the inexhaustible energies of the cosmos pour into human cultural manifestation. Religions, philosophies, arts, the social forms of primitive and historic man, prime discoveries in science and technology, the very dreams that blister sleep, boil up from the basic, magic ring of myth… The latest incarnation of Oedipus, the continued romance of Beauty and the Beast, stand this afternoon on the corner of Forty-second Street and Fifth Avenue, waiting for the traffic light to change.” — Joseph Campbell, The Hero’s Journey Springing up as oral traditions, Myths are living repositories of collective wisdom, social practice, spiritual transformation, ecological awareness, & psychological insight. Myth is deep psyche dressed in imaginative cultural garb – a bridge or fabric of story that connects us to the blueprint of our destiny & through it to Heaven & Earth’s innermost workings, which in the end are the same as our own. Joseph Campbell often pointed out “Myths are metaphors,” ; that symbolize the perennial, archetypal aspects of human experience. But although the underlying themes are eternal, the images that story them are constantly in motion; Deep rumblings sound below the level of collective consciousness, where vibrantly alive mythic images challenge & evolve us like the qualities of existence they image. But mythic beings won’t stay locked out or confined to a grid. In a rationalist, de-sacralized world run by money, force, & hardware, they creep in from the margins & ruptures & edges disguised as symptoms, nightmares, epidemics, political upheavals, works of art, moods of enchantment, & disturbing dreams. An education in mythology fills a gap in the hungering soul with nourishing visions, inspiring narratives, & timeless motifs. When properly digested they become food for the heart & therapy for the imagination. They summon us back to the natural terrains from which they originally sprang & to which all things return… ~hag

Tell-Tale Heart
What if…? The universe is made of music & stories –The Word – not fluff & stuff. What song will you sing today to bring the world into existence? What story will you tell? hmmm…but, ummm…what if we aren’t consciously creating the universe? What if we are just going along, living in someone else’s narrative? What happens if we habitually expose ourselves not to The Word within, but to the voices shouting directives from outside us? – To the toxic stories that serve to enslave? What if a commercial jingle is our earworm? – The sound bite our only truth? Friends! We could wind up living in a false universe! – A world where we are just human animals; a statistic, not spiritual beings having a human experience – A world where it’s impossible to become the purposeful prodigy we are ALL born to be. No that’s crazy-talk; we would never choose that, right!?! We know that’s not our destiny! So let’s wean ourselves off tell-tales that have a reductive plot line, & no real heart – fueled primarily by grotesque, negative scenarios, or delusional one size fits all ‘safety’ measures. Instead, let’s celebrate the luminous mysteries that throb with truth & shape our life story: The clear meditative meanderings that don’t always lead to tidy conclusions, the budding spiritual ‘What If’s’ that feed our soul, but don’t do a thing to serve the false ego’s apathies. Let’s live into the adventure that revolves around brain-teasing breakthroughs, instead of exhausting wobbly confusion, or a status quo submission caused by fear & illusion…. So how about it…? Let’s encourage each other to nourish ourselves with delicious, nutritious narratives & the glorious Music of the Spheres, where ‘the ever present help of the spiritual world’ resounds – inspiring us to exercise our willpower for the highest good of all. ~Once upon a timing with you ~hag

Temple After Image
I woke up on this Indigenous People’s day & knew I had to give thanks at the Great Inland Sea. I offered up a rose from our pageant altar to the Spirit of Place, as the Sun was spreading a pink light on the water. I reflected on our powerful working & spoke the name “Mishigama” derived from the Chippewa Indian word meaning “large water” or “great lake”. As I watched the rose toss in the waves I contemplated the remarkable dream I awoke with:

The shift into Autumn
Preparing for Michaelmas: I watch the shadows lengthen. The angle of the sun, like the lance of Michael, a sunlit spear piercing awake my sleepy summer eyes, banishing the Sulphur, activating the iron in my blood. Am I ready to do battle with the dragon within? If spiritual science is allowed to live in us & extend its transforming influence to our heart-space, what enters us as thoughts, is then changed, into the substance of light, into the purest light of thought. And in the living enthusiasm of the heart, this light of thought then rays out from our hearts into the macrocosm, as light of the redeemed intelligence of Michael; as enlivened human thought, which can be re-united with the world-thoughts of the gods. Heart-Thinking is the essence of Michaelmas, as the festival of Enlightenment; where we can learn to experience an unfolding of our inner initiative & a free, strong, courageous will, that helps us fend off our lazy tendencies . It is our job to strive to complete the never ending story, with the new Michaelic mysteries put forth by Rudolf Steiner, a true emissary of of this Sun Being, teaching us to count the human being as the 10th hierarchy. And so, work we must, as we stand once more on the edge of autumn. See you there…

The Present Age
~Let the augury of birds sing the melody of splendor Before the dream of time began, & I will count myself Among the absolute Which dwells in the numberless One Where we 1st meet… ~hag …The present age is more than any other age demanding the one thing people least want to have: understanding based on the science of the spirit. Strange as it may sound to the ordinary, average people of today — order will not be created from the chaos of the present time until a sufficiently large number of people are prepared to recognize the truths of that science. Such will be the karma of world history. If people insist that this war is just like the wars of the past and that we’ll be making peace just as peace has been made before — let them talk. They are the people who love maya and do not distinguish between truth and deception. Order will only arise from the chaos that fills the world today when insight based on the science of the spirit dawns in human minds. You may feel in your heart that it will be a long time before such order comes; you may think it will be a long time before people are prepared to let the dawn of such a science arise — and you will be right. You have to accept that it will be a long time before order arises from the chaos. For it will not come until human hearts understand the realm of the spirit. Order can only come when it is understood how this chaos has arisen. Chaos has arisen because the reality is considered in an unspiritual way — and the world of the spirit cannot be ignored with impunity. You may think it is enough to live with thoughts and ideas that are wholly derived from the physical world. It is what people generally think today, though this does not make it true. The most completely and utterly wrong idea humanity has ever had is — to put it simply — that the spirits will put up with being ignored. The spirits take their revenge if they are ignored here on Earth. This is a law, an iron necessity. One way to characterize the present time is to say that the present human chaos is the revenge of the spirits that have been ignored for too long. I have often said, both here and elsewhere: A mysterious connection exists between human consciousness and the destructive powers of decline and fall in the universe. ~Rudolf Steiner, Fall of the Spirits of Darkness, Lecture 1, September 29, 1917

10:10 Check-in
10:10 Testament - The Thought-Seed Project: It's been awhile since we checked in around our ‘Egregore’ - our collective ‘Thought-Form’ of Good Will – our “key-call” to the powers on the Inner Planes, to enlist their aid. Through our continued intention to visualize the human being as a star & the Earth as a Sun*, our positive egregore grows between the material & spiritual worlds & is connected to both. At the re-founding of the Anthroposophical Society, Rudolf Steiner connected ‘the Movement’ – i.e. The Spiritual Beings working behind the impulse of Anthroposophia - with the Society & its members. This impulse extends beyond the usual limits of space/time. Our goal is to co-create a new ‘Group-Soul United in Christ’ thru our daily 10:10 meditation. *For Thinking: “When I think light, my soul shines, When my soul shines, the earth is a star, When the earth is a star, then I am, a true human being”. ~Herbert Hahn For Feeling: When I feel warmth, my heart sings When my heart sings, the Earth resounds When the Earth resounds, I am a true I AM For Willing: When I will life, my hands help When my hands help, the Earth heals When the Earth heals, I am a free human being ~ Mary Lynn Channer & hag Here’s a Steiner Quote that supports our work: “Had the Event of Golgotha not occurred, the earth and the sun would never be able to reunite. For through the Event of Golgotha, which bound the force of the Elohim in the sun to the earth — in other words the force of the Logos — the impulse was given which will again eventually impel one Logos-force toward the other, and finally once more unite them — sun and earth — in one body. Since the Event of Golgotha, the earth, spiritually observed, is possessed of the force to draw the sun again into a unity with it. Therefore it can be said that through this great Event, the force of the Logos, which formerly radiated down upon the earth from without, was now taken up into its spiritual being. The question may be asked, what existed previously within the body of the earth? It was that force which streamed down upon it from the sun. But since that time, what exists there within the earth? - The Logos itself which through Golgotha has become the spirit of the earth. As truly as your soul and spirit dwell within your physical body, do also the soul and spirit of the earth dwell within the body of the earth. This soul and spirit, this earth spirit is the Christ.” ~ The Gospel of St. John, Lecture 7 -THE MYSTERY OF GOLGOTHA

Caves Under the Sea
Greetings friends – I am just bobbing my head up from a deep dive – my 1st foray as a member of the General Council of the Anthroposophical Society in America. Thruout the 4 day retreat we worked with a lecture series by Rudolf Steiner called simply – ‘Anthroposophy, An Introduction’, GA 234, given a year before he died, from January – February of 1924. These 9 lectures are a kind of recapitulation, a deepening of concepts he gave 21 years earlier in his seminal books ‘Theosophy’, & ‘How to Know Higher Worlds’.

Getting Hitched
Yes, it’s Wedding season. Besides a funeral, celebrating a marriage is the ultimate social event, a ritual merger, as well as a personal milestone. I think we are all ripe for union. It doesn't have to be a traditional union of 2 lovers, there are many ways to satisfy this universal fiat. Perhaps committing to walk down the aisle with your muse – or pledging your mutual support & undying agape with a soul friend. It certainly is high time to say "I do" to your community – to espouse yourself to a pet project – or get hitched to a star. What symbol, moral principle, or ideal might you link yourself to? You may even want to tie the knot with your preferred power tool, beloved animal companion, or sacred place – Come on – pop the question, jump over the broom, or stand under the Chuppah of your imagination, to tie the knot with your higher Self.

Prep work
As we ramp up toward the solar eclipse, let’s tune into the power of our Day-Star Sun - to lubricate our imagination - Ever listening to that little birdy, or the iridescent insect that has lighted on the fragrant flower of the neighbors catalpa tree. Are you weaving in the wave with the cicadas yet? The Elemental world invites you to be inspired into. The fixed & wandering stars radiate rampant probabilities into the intuition of our willing will. Will we - think the liquid lightning of invocation - Meet the many ambrosial realities available to our warmth of feeling, to receive the luscious healing balms flowing forth from the beginning of time - as we reclaim the NOW…!?!

Ephesians 6:10-18: Be forewarned and forearmed in your spiritual conflict: “In conclusion be strong—not in yourselves but in the Lord, in the power of his boundless resource. Put on God’s complete armour so that you can successfully resist all the methods of attack from evil. Our fight is not against any physical enemy: it is against organizations and powers that are spiritual. We are up against the unseen power that controls this dark world, and spiritual agents from the very headquarters of evil. Therefore you must wear the whole armour of God that you may be able to resist evil in its day of power, and that even when you have fought to a standstill you may still stand your ground. Take your stand then with truth as your belt, righteousness your breastplate, the Gospel of peace firmly on your feet, salvation as your helmet and in your hand the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. Above all be sure you take faith as your shield, for it can quench every burning missile the enemy hurls at you. Pray at all times with every kind of spiritual prayer, keeping alert and persistent as you pray for all people.”

“One gets smart through experience, but wisdom is the force that streams into us from the spiritual world and then streams out again. Wisdom also comes from the mouth of babes. When what streams out comes more from the feeling, it is wisdom, but when it stimulates a person into action so that productivity predominates, it is love. But one has to know what love really is. Someone may feel sympathy for a person's misfortune, but that isn't real love. Sympathy only becomes love if one steps in and helps them. Wisdom and love make up the I. The I is love and wisdom that have become will. This is the higher triad.” ~Rudolf Steiner, Esoteric Lessons, Hamburg. 31 May 1908

medicine for our soul
Spirit knowledge will be medicine for our soul, and when that happens, the horizon of our existence widens and implants in us that way of thinking that is the fruit of all spirit knowledge. This resulting way of thinking and feeling, this attitude of mind and heart, must be considered the ideal state to which spiritual scientific endeavors can lead. All discord, all disharmonies of life will disappear opposite the harmonious thoughts and feelings that bring about an energetic will. Thus, spiritual investigation proves to be not just knowledge and doctrine, but also a force of life and a substance of our soul. Seen in this light, Spiritual Science is capable of working in life in such a way that it frees human beings from cares and worries.

Buddha & the Dragon
Dear Friends – Wednesday 26 May is Wesak* & the start of the eclipse season for 2021. Tonight, the silver disc of Bella Luna in her Full phase hovers huge in the heavens all night long, then as the birds begin to wake, her brilliant light will suddenly turn blood red, as she crosses Cauda Draconis – the Moon’s South Node or Dragon’s Tail, associated with misfortune & the need to pay for past debts. Cauda Draconis calls for the termination of something… Here in Chicago the partial lunar eclipse can be seen starting at 3:30 am CT when we will be able to see the Super Flower Moon pass thru the darkest part of Earth’s shadow – catch her before she sets at 5:26 am CT (it may be thundering & lightning here at the Great Inland Sea of Chicago, you may be sleeping, but we can still live into this image) This cosmic & earthly event is happening while the world celebrates *Wesak, the biggest Buddhist festival of the year, which celebrates the ‘birth, enlightenment & death of the Buddha’ on one & the same day, traditionally when the Sun is in Taurus, & the Moon in Scorpio. What does it mean that this year the coils of the Dragon wrap around the Buddha Moon?

Dedicated to Johanna Rohde who passed peacefully on Whitsunday 23 May 2021 at 11:30 pm. Johanna was a part of our community for many years, teaching and practicing therapeutic eurythmy, sharing her talents at the festivals and the local Waldorf Schools.  Please hold her in your thoughts & prayers as she makes her journey into the Spiritual World. “May love of hearts reach out to love of souls May warmth of love ray out to Spirit-light Even so would we draw near to you Thinking with you Thoughts of Spirit Feeling in you the Love of Worlds Consciously at one with you Willing in silent being”. ~Rudolf Steiner  Whitsun has been called a festival of flowers. We see this out among the buds opening under the increasing power of the sun, under the etheric & astral influences. The heart of humanity as it opens to warmth & light is like the flower, aligning itself to the sun which permeates the earth. And what pours down from the sun, giving the flower, our image in reverse, the potency it needs, is like the tongues of fire descending upon the heads of the disciples, for us humans.

Ruth & Naomi
With all the genocide being perpetuated by those in power in Israel, I would like to tell the story of Ruth & Naomi, a Jewish woman & an Arab woman who shared a deep karmic connection, giving us a message of unity we need so much today. Their story is mixed in with the Holiday called Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks, Feast of The First Fruits, or Feast of the Giving of the Law; a spring festival that celebrates the grain harvest, & the ripening of the first fruits, as well as the anniversary of the giving of the Torah.

Dear Friends- The universe is eternally creative. Something is always coming into being, or transforming into something else. To awaken to this process makes us co-creators. We become a willing accomplice – for our attention & intention sets up a radiating frequency that morphs matter. Don’t underestimate the vibration of Devotion. And if this Hope & Faith is backed by Love, it is never blind - it’s visionary.

WE are the New Normal
Yes, dear friends, WE ARE THE NEW NORMAL. & we are not alone. Yes, it’s true the muzzled censorship & mass hypnosis can feel overwhelming; but it doesn’t mean we aren’t still working it; feeling a bit bruised by the sticks & stones, but still able to Think & Feel & use our Will for Good. It’s up to us to make the Spirit go Viral – to ride the next wave which is ‘coming in the clouds’… Maybe you’ve recognized the symptoms: which for me first appeared as a profound antipathy toward the corporate run mass-media; especially the consumer driven propaganda & all the concocted statistical graphs, manufactured covid death tolls, & blatant disregard about the emerging consequences of gene altering experimental jabs. This has of course led to an instant distrust of governmental control thru contact tracing, & vaccine passports which follows. O & it’s easy to see past the demands for more bail-outs for the evil elite, & their mass plot meant to de-humanize. And yes, even the etheric cloaking by SpaceX, & the all-pervasive use of 5G. And yet, dear ones, none of this can even compare to the divine power of the Love & Light we can generate together when we are one in the spirit – for WE ARE THE NEW NORMAL. We know, that this global plandemic is meant to bring in a sudden flash of clear thinking & compassionate action. Maybe we start off in an innocuous way with our own little victory garden. And for sure we get to know our local farmer. We put our $ where our mouth is & consume bio-dynamic food, & herbal tonics. And then before you know it, we are called to dance in the sunlight, sing to the elementals, meditate with the angels, & speak with the stars. Eventually, symptoms of our spiritual scientific new normal can be seen to manifest as an increase in the level of connective consciousness, a strengthening of empathy in our soul forces, accompanied by a complete liberation from fear. Finally, the dis-ease ends in an understanding of karma, an amping-up of gratitude, & the sincere expression of unconditional love. As newly christened Freedom Holders working with Anthroposophia, we can name this plandemic: The ‘Viral Wisdom’ And, YES, it is highly contagious. The recommended dosage of cosmic medicine is to reach out & connect as much as possible in person & across the globe with other people who think for themselves & act conscientiously. This ‘Viral Wisdom’ is spread thru positivity & open-mindedness. The latest in-depth research on the exact means of transmission reveals that it can occur instantly, with an incubation period as fast as the speed of thought. But in order to ‘heighten the curve’ we must work patiently, to foster in a consistent, daily fashion, the evolution of this ‘Viral Wisdom’, thru our every thought, word & deed. Knowing that Yes! WE ARE THE NEW NORMAL. ~hag See you in the 10:10 Thought-Seed.

a karmic dream
April 27, 2021
It’s difficult to really Know Thyself. It’s even harder to describe yourself to another. And then there are the impressions others have of us. Impressions which are often colored by antipathies & sympathies – past karma... And what is true for me might not be true for you. And then of course it’s all in how we react to the reaction... I often ask myself: What is more important, our manners or our intentions? Are we our confessions, or our ideals? What if our deeds haven't fruited, can we still claim the harvest? It’s difficult to stand up to the standards of others. Our karma sometimes gives us slack, & sometimes it’s the rope that hangs us.

As we bring Heaven & Earth together, as the dreamtime & daytime merge, as paradise & the underworld overlap, we register the shockingly exhilarating fact that we are in charge - you & I are in charge - of making a brand new world.

Orpheus, Hypatia & the Lyrid Meteor Showers
Starting tonight & peaking on Earth Day April 22 the Lyrids are making their appearance. These springtime meteors get their name from the constellation Lyra, which is shaped like a harp with a tail to the bright star Vega.  From Greek mythology, this is the Lyre of Orpheus, the harmonious instrument that the virtuoso played at the gates of Hades in an ill-fated attempt to win back Eurydice from the Underworld. Orpheus the son of Apollo & the muse Calliope, being a demi-god, his singing & playing were so beautiful that animals & even trees & rocks moved about him in dance.  Some folks speculate that this was a former incarnation of Marie Steiner von Shivers, who they also say was the famous Greek philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria – they both met their death by being was ripped to shreds. Perhaps, we can imagine the Lyrids as the 'Tears of Orpheus,' falling down from the heavens. I think it’s interesting to contemplate these 2 powerful personalities, of Orpheus & Hypatia, who were both standing at a turning point of time when new impulse were coming in, which is what Meteor Showers are a sign.

Shred Illuisons
"The world and “all that therein is” is born out of the spirit; the human being is born and called to rise to the spirit. Spiritual Science shows us more and more that the spirit lies exhausted in matter, that physical substance is the magic robe of the Spiritual. It is for the human being living in the material world, to charm the spirit out of this magic robe. The Spiritual finds its resurrection in the human being, in the human soul that rises above itself. — To enable the soul to find this path is the task of Spiritual Science. Thus does spirit find spirit. And the human being will realise and understand the spirit more and more as we fashion ourselves in its image." ~Rudolf Steiner, The European Mysteries and Their Initiates, The History of Christian Rosenkreutz. Berlin, May 6, 1909, GA 57 “Knowledge of higher worlds by no means concerns only the individual human being, only their personal welfare and misfortune. Precisely through true occult-scientific observations the human being arrives at the certainty that, from a higher standpoint, the welfare and misfortune of the individual is intimately bound up with the welfare or misfortune of the whole world. The human being comes to understand that they injure the whole universe and all its beings by not developing their forces in the proper way. If they lay waste to their life by losing the relationship with the supersensible, they not only destroy something in their own inner being — the decaying of which can lead them finally to despair — but because of their weakness they create a hindrance to the evolution of the whole world in which they live”. ~ Rudolf Steiner – GA 13 – An Outline of Occult Science: I: THE CHARACTER OF OCCULT SCIENCE

The Art & Science of Magic
The foundation for the thoughts shared today: “It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows” ~Epictetus "In the sciences, people quickly come to regard as their own personal property that which they have learned and had passed on to them at the universities and academies. If someone else comes along with new ideas that contradict the Credo and in fact even threaten to overturn it, then all passions are raised against this threat and no method is left untried to suppress it. People resist it in every way possible: pretending not to have heard about it; speaking disparagingly of it, as if it were not even worth the effort of looking into the matter. And so a new truth can have a long wait before finally being accepted." — Goethe’ ''If we take the sphere of medicine we shall see at once that it is not so evident whether or not the conditions of reality have been taken into account. Here too the procedure is the same; something is thought out theoretically and then applied as a means of healing. Whether in this case there has been a cure, whether it was somebody's destiny to die, or whether perhaps he has been “cured to death,” this indeed is difficult to perceive. The bridge collapses when there are faults in its construction; but whether the sick person gets worse, whether he has been cured by the treatment, or has died of it, is not so easy to discover.'' ~ Rudolf Steiner, Human Values in Education, LECTURE I, ARNHEIM, 17th July, 1924.

A Letter to Kore from Demeter
Whatever Joy or pain you feel, or burden or responsibility you carry, from your ever sprouting fate-full life-story, know that it conveys you to another evolutionary cusp, ever higher, ever awakening.

'How Fascinating'
Dear Friends, Here is an activity we can do to break the bad habit of judging & thinking negatively: Whenever something happens that makes us feel incredulous we are encouraged to throw up our hands & say “How fascinating”! It's simple it's fun, it shakes up the moment. Yep, when confronted with something I don’t agree with, or find dubious, it helps me stop in that moment before I speak or react. It’s a chance to recalibrate, before the reflex, the habit, the thing that I might automatically say or do kicks in. It helps keep me positive & open-minded.

Tall Tale
Greetings friends on this eve of St. Patrick’s Day, & Welcome to ‘I Think Speech’ I am Hazel Archer-Ginsberg, & Today for Tune-in Tuesday - my weekly musing for our Practice group working with the 6Basic, essential, protective exercises, given by Rudolf Steiner, in honor of the 5th exercise of Open-mindedness, I thought to share a ‘Tall Tale’ revised by me for us today, but originally told 6 years ago when my daughter was still at the Chicago Waldorf School, by master teacher Carol Triggiano, known far & wide as a fabulous storyteller – Open-mindedness asks us to consider that anything is possible. So here is a wonderful Paul Bunyan Tall Tale.
March 16, 2021
Today is Tune in Tuesday – my weekly musing shared with the folks working with what Spiritual Science calls the 6 basic or essential exercises. This week we started on the 4th which is open-mindedness. And I immediately thought of this quote from Frank Zappa:  “A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it’s not open.”

Positive Listening
Today I am Marching in like a lion with a wee fairy tale that celebrates the power of Positivity & the blessings of the music of Spring. Once upon a time a 100 years ago, or was it yesterday...
March 02, 2021
When I look into the center point where the 2 circles meet & interact, I hear music -a harmonious core of sound, vibrating The Word – The One Song. I feel it pulsing within me, there in the heart, flowing along the grooves of the figure 8. But recently it seems I have been forgetting to actively engage it. I allow the reading or writing or speaking of the word to take precedence over listening. *This is what I am listening to these days *This link has cool video’s to go with the music UVA makes with the looper *This is the Sound Cloud of Ultra-Violet Archer which has all the albums

Rosa Mundi
There is a connection here with Demeter The goddess of agriculture who is known as “The Pure Mother Bee”, but she doesn’t really show up until Equinox, so today we look to the Celtic Triple Goddess of this cross-quarter time. She who invented language & Agriculture in the West.  So let’s take a few moments now to let the gifts of honeyed Brigid, unite & bless us for our time together.  In early Celtic times, the light of the growing Sun was seen as Brigid’s Fire of Purification, burning away the dross of winter & shining forth Hope for the coming Spring-tide.
February 06, 2021
She Speaks
So as we stand at the midway point, betwixt winter & spring, we can remember that for our ancestors this was a time of initiation, a time of purification & re-dedication, called by some the season of the Celtic Triple Goddess Brigid, associated with the mysteries of the sacred well-the healing Holy Waters AND the fires of the forge, the eternal flame of the hearth & the fire in the head to bring us poetry & clear thinking, to call in the will of the Sun. And so to tune into these potent energies, let’s take a little inner journey, what do you say? Are you ready to engage your imagination?

Brigid: The 4 Fires & The Sacred Healing Well
Dear friends, I am inspired to continue to keep the energy of the season going with a little story that I shared with my writing buddies & the folks working with the 6 basic exercises yesterday. This tale is dedicated to the Celtic Triple Goddess Brigid. She of the 4 Alchemical fires & the purifying waters, which gives birth to healing. And so it is of her that I will share
February 03, 2021
The Cross-quarter betwixt the Winter Solstice & the Vernal Equinox is not only intuited & out-pictured in nature, but is determined by a cosmic conversation. But most folks celebrate today on the fixed date of Feb. 2nd. In the time of the ancient Mystery Schools it was a time of purification & re-dedication, a time of initiation. For the Celtic tribes, who were very much in touch with the cycles of the season, this is called Imbolc – which means in the belly – it’s the lambing season. They call it Celtic Spring - the time of year when the belly of the great mother quickens with the growing light. And it is dedicated to the Triple Goddess Brigid, holding the power of the Maiden, Mother, Crone, & associated with the mysteries of the sacred well connected to purification & the fires of the forge, to call in the will of the Sun.
February 02, 2021
The Cailleach
As a veiled Crone, with one eye & pale blue/grey skin, The Cailleach or twilight hag, has been feared & revered across Celtic cultures for over 3000 years. Depicted as a giant with a bow-legged stride -She leaps across mountains & valleys with a power to shape & transform the landscape, rocks falling from Her gathered apron. The Cailleach is said to be responsible for raising mountains & creating the ancient burial cairns & barrow mounds.  She is a Goddess of the Underworld, associated with the ancestors & the realms of death & rebirth. The Cailleach is connected to the bean sidhe (Banshee), the wild women of the Faeries, She oversees the faerie mounds & entrances to the realm of the Fey.  You will also find Her near sacred standing stones, the “bones of the earth”.  Her companion the Owl is associated with death, the underworld, magic, & the ability to see spirits.  She is said to be a shapeshifter, & can transform into a giant bird - "the night hag", "cailleach-oidhche", which is old Gaelic for "owl". As a Goddess of transformation & death, She oversees the culling of the old, & lets die all that is no longer needed. And also with the passing of the Winter months, the Cailleach finds & guards the seeds for the coming re-birth of Spring.

The New Year for the Trees
In the 16th century, the Kabbalists compiled a Tu B’Shvat “Seder,” similar to the Seder for Passover. It involves enjoying the fruits & seeds of the tree, while discussing philosophical & Kabbalistic concepts, like the idea that by eating with the highest intention we can repair the ‘fall’. The ‘sin’ against the Tree of Knowledge was that Adam & Eve ate its fruit before it was ripe. So, what is it about waiting that transforms knowledge from hurtful to healthy? Do we have faith that the spring will come & everything will grow & ripen in its season? There is wisdom in waiting. And Through conscious eating, we have a daily opportunity to correct a part of our soul, so deep & intrinsic that it reaches back into the Garden of Eden.  The custom on Tu B’Shvat is to eat fruits from what is called ‘the seven species’ for which the Earth is praised: “…a land of wheat and barley and (grape) vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and (date) honey” (Deut. 8:8). On Tu B’Shvat, it is also customary to eat a “new fruit” something we have not yet tasted in the new year. This festival lets us ask: Am I getting the spiritual food I need, to truly live with grace; or has my tree been left untended; or is it being blown down by the forces of information overload & rampant materialism? We can also remember how trees are able to communicate with each other. And we can ask: Am I part of a strong community, providing a warm & nurturing environment? Or am I cast into the pale bleak anonymity of urban life & cyberspace? Am I looking to future generations knowing that I am providing them with the proper foundations for their lives?

True Feeling
Dear friends, To really live into the 3rdof the 6 basic exercises, which is about equanimity or the capacity to remain balanced & calm rather than reactive, we can tune into our breathing, our rhythmic system. In the 2nd panel of the Foundation Stone Meditation Rudolf Steiner tells us when we live into the beat of heart & lung we are supported thru the rhythms of time. They say time heals all wounds. We find our stability within the fluctuation, which reveals the true feeling of our own soul-being. When we practice Spirit Mindfulness, which is to observe the spirit behind mind, beyond matter, listening to the riddle it poses & the awareness it awakens, this brings us a steadiness of Soul, a balance of earth & spirit.  When we unite our own 'I' our consciousness, with the 'I' or consciousness of the world, this weaving in our souls allows us to use our feeling life creatively. Emotion comes from motion; if the motion gets bent out of shape, we can change the shape to change the emotion. We can work with the feeling. Cultivate it - to change the atmosphere - to become steady -To feel deeper. Instead of being buffeted by the ‘surging deeds of world evolving’ we can take the reins of our emotion & steer it where we want to go - into a unity.

'Spirit of Place'
Dorothy was right: There’s no place like home. As we journey thru life―dodging the occasional wicked witch―the ‘Spirit of Place’, which perhaps drew us to our home, creates a definite ambiance that we live with. But do we recognize it? Do we honor it, & seek to know its nature? If we strive to cultivate a relationship with our Spirit of Place, we might even discover a Munchkin or two, over the rainbow or just across the threshold, but we have to open the door of our black & white life & step into the reality of technicolor. Sunday 24 January 2021 – Reclaiming the Wisdom of America – 2–4 pm CST – An interactive Zoom Presentation with Hazel Archer-Ginsberg, Rosemary McMullen, Anne Nicholson, Stewart Lundy, Sally Greenberg, Anne Dale * Anne Nicholson, Social Scientist & tech guru is our Host * Sally Greenberg – Opening Verse: Walt Whitman-Leaves of Grass * Hazel Archer will explore the concept of Columbia as the Folk Spirit of America, as seen from the perspective of the Native Peoples’, as well as the Founding Fathers. How do we renew this for our age of the consciousness soul, as a preparation for the unveiling of the New Isis-Sophia in the 7th epoch – to fulfill the true destiny of America? * Stewart Lundy of Perennial Roots Farm brings the connection of Bio-dynamics * Rosemary McMullen sets the scene for the ancestors – ‘Land Acknowledgement’, as a way for each participant to look at their current placement in America. A look also at how The 3 Realms of Culture, Rights, Economy, becomes 4-fold when we bring in the element of Ecology. * Artistic gesture: The Spirit of Place * Sally Greenberg & Anne Dale: a contemplation of the expression of our Civil Responsibility that recommits us to our core values, to one another, & to the Spirit of Place & Time. * Breakout Groups: Social Sharing – What do you see is wanting to come into being in America?

Mental Pictures
"To meditate is to become a stage where the eternal and transitory meet, so that our actions can become those of the eternal, for which we are but mediators; we are the eyes and the hands of the primal spirit, who sees and creates through us. Out of the spirit, then, let us create a better world” ~Rudolf Steiner
January 21, 2021
Inaugurate Change
To fear the wolf is to miss the opportunity to tap into its essence, which can be turned to the good. Many conservationists say reintroducing the wolf into the wild brings a better balance to the ecosystem. If we try to suppress these impulses they just come out sideways, & we get the wolf in sheep’s clothing, which in my thinking is much more lethal. How can we let the howl of the wolf alert us to the fact that the checks & balances are needing adjustment. How can the howl be heard, so that the call for freedom can be transformed from an unconscious selfish impulse, where the pack runs in for the kill; channeled instead into a call for a true freedom which serves the good of all.

Catch Fire
Dear Friends, In the coming months, we will encounter events that require us to revise our understandings about the very nature of reality. Our imaginations will have to be ingenious & our hearts alert in order to keep up with the outlandish changes. To locate truth amidst relentless waves of propaganda, we'll have to be fiercely disciplined & tenderly hate-free. Unclutched by fear. To avoid being infected by popular delusions, we'll have to cultivate compassionate lucidity, humble courage, & a determination to rouse our will. We are primed to commune much more intimately with the hidden source of power that fuels life. We are close to meeting the requirements defined by visionary poet William Blake who wrote: "Unless the eye catch fire, God will not be seen. Unless the ear catch fire, God will not be heard. Unless the tongue catch fire, God will not be named. Unless the heart catch fire, God will not be loved. Unless the mind catch fire, God will not be known." Let’s catch fire, to enkindle a passion to know god in all her forms. And to nurture our home fires that we must keep ever burning, as well as the communal fire that we must gather around & feed with our very breath.

Wake the Sleeping Giant
today is the 15th January 2021, Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday – he would have been 92. I want to dedicate this ‘I Think Speech’ podcast to the inspiring human being who works with us from the Spiritual world for Justice & peace. We are the sleeping giant - The buried god - Wake up in the dream. Practice lucid tolerance to banish intolerance. Read between the lies. To question is to answer. Friends, there are no innocent by-standers. There is no us & them. The dragon & the frontlines are in us all. And truth is a triple-edged sword that we must fashion. From Equity, comes Solidarity, which forges Freedom. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” “But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” “Faith is taking the first step even when you can't see the whole staircase.” “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” ~hag, with you on the frontlines

Not 1 without the other
"...Let us suppose that a great number of people, because of uncharitableness, had been impelled to absorb certain infectious germs, so that they succumbed to an epidemic. Let us further suppose we were in a position to protect them from this epidemic. We should in such a case preserve the physical body from the effects of uncharitableness, but we have not removed the inner tendency towards uncharitableness. If we want to bring a true healing, we must also undertake the duty of influencing the soul in such a way as to remove from it the tendency towards a lack of charity, or the disease will go deeper into the soul..." ~ Rudolf Steiner, Manifestations of Karma, LECTURE 8, ~The truth Of what we call our knowing Is both light & dark… Humans are always dying & waking… The rhythm between, we call life… Some miracle is about To happen… ~hag

~Behold the eye that holds you... Without hands it made life... You will be Her hands... Sing & She will sing thru you... Your work is Her will...if what you make, Your body, your love, your peace - is good, it will endure... When the eye opens wink back... I am ever searching for the spiritual significance behind world events. I have been thinking about how the corona crisis has made us catch our breath – has literally stopped our breath & endangered our collective heart. And seeks to modify our very humanness by altering the RNA in our blood. Finding the connections between ourselves & the world situation, let us breathe deep into our lungs knowing that with this & every breath we take in spiritual life forces that stimulate the warmth & life in our blood, enabling us to be, to think, to feel./ Then when we breathe out - into the world - we are filling the atmosphere with the concepts of our being, of our thoughts & feeling life. Are we sharing into the ethers enlivened life forces of light, love & warmth? - Or are we breathing out fearful death forces, cold hard unconscious darkness…?
January 13, 2021
Rudolf Steiner says “We think we see with our eyes, but we don't literally see with these outer organs. They are a kind of microscope, or telescope, or camera, a fairly dead body in us. We see by means of it, with etheric activity.” He explains that we perceive colors as the result of etheric activity. If we look at green & afterwards at a white sheet of paper, we see it’s reversal as red. (hmm the Christmas colors, go ahead after the call get out your crayons & give it a try) This seeing is due to the continuation of the etheric activity of the eye, which answers to the impressions of colors. We see a balance. We never see an actual color as it is, but always a balance. We produce complementary colors thru the etheric activity of our eye; & what we see - the final physical effect, is a balance, even if we are not consciously aware of it. But when we do make it our intention to be conscious, we became co-creators of this new etheric sight.

POD (Poem Of the Day) ~Today I invoke: The Lady of the pyre – Lady of the heat who burns up transgression Her flame is sharp, Her fingers are orange sparks She speaks with a tongue of far-reaching flame Her hands are quick; She burns flesh into ash & light She is beyond necessity, She is the power of Freedom reborn… Today I am Hers… ~hag “For if it were impossible for man to sink into the abyss of evil, he would not have been able to attain what on the one hand we call love and on the other freedom; since to the occultist freedom is inseparably connected with the idea of love. It would be impossible for man to develop either love or freedom without the possibility of sailing down into the abyss. A man unable, of his own free decision, to choose good or evil, would be a being who would only be led on a puppets-string to a good which must be attained of necessity and who had no power to choose the good of his own fully purified will, by the love which springs from freedom. If it were impossible for man to follow in the trail of the monster with the two horns, it would also be impossible for him to follow God out of his own individual love. It was in accordance with a wise Providence to give the possibility of freedom to the humanity which has been developing through our planetary system, and this possibility of freedom could be given on no other condition than that man himself has to make the free choice between good and evil.“ ~Rudolf Steiner, The Apocalypse of St. John, Lecture XII 12:15 January 11, 2021 In-Form

Let the freedom dove fly. Shout unity to the sky. Let war & greed die. Claim justice on high.

Joan of Arc vs. 'the proud boys'
The only revolution that can work is a complete revolution in our thinking, feeling & willing. Otherwise we are just being played between 2 adversarial forces. We can generate the great strength we need to offer a conscious resistance to these inflaming & hardening forces by approaching the spirit, not only thru the inner powers of revelation & faith, like in the case of Joan of Arc; but by concentrating our powers of understanding on what spiritual science has to give, starting with common sense; which gives us the moral foundation that opens us to divinely inspired wisdom, filling us with light. And when we take ahold of ourselves with this attitude, we can consciously work with what Michael, the Spirit of our Age, has to give us now in our time – Meeting every test & trail with a conscious heart-thinking, motivated by the wisdom of love. In the opening verse Steiner reminds us: Spirit fruits will come to grow, If, souls with knowledge of the spirit, Turn their mind to spirit realms. And so dear friends, as we remember the deeds of Joan of Arc, especially during this season of Epiphany, we are also reminded of our current task, to name & tame the modern beasts, to take our will forces in hand, to flip evil on its head, to reverse it, so that it serves the good - Like dear Greta Thunberg & many, many, people young & old, who have dedicated themselves to be Spiritual Warriors for Peace, & the light of truth.  See you in the 10:10. Blessings dear ones, thank you for being part of this Spiritual Revolution. ~hag

Holy Nights Series: The 6th Holy Night - Harmony & Balance
In Libra we come to the center of the Zodiac, the balance between the below - those lower signs we have just traversed, considered the ‘dark signs’ where humanity still needs work; & the above - the upper zodiac, referred to as the ascended signs, where we are headed in our evolution.  The Sphere of the Dynamis, the Spirits of Movement, part of the 2ndHierarchy of Angelic beings dwelling in the Sun, bring the entire solar system into a state of mutual equilibrium.  The reciprocal balance of the individual planets under their guidance finds a living expression in what Pythagoras called the ‘Music of the Spheres’./ Perhaps we can choose to take the time to listen in & sing along today, eh?  ~hag

Holy Nights Series: the 4th Holy Night Centaur or Archer?
a quote from the great Rosicrucian initiate Rudolf Steiner “… These Holy Nights stand as though established out of the wise, hidden depths of the human soul, as if to say: Yes, experience the Christmas Festival in all its profoundness; & then plunge during the Holy Nights into the Mysteries of the Cosmos; - from where the being of love descended to the earth”  Today December 27this the Feast of St. John, writer of the Gospel & the book of Revelation, it’s also the Birthday of astronomer Johannes Kepler, & the Deathday of Marie Steiner von Sivers – wife of Rudolf Steiner & one of his closest colleagues.

The Holy Nights Series: Christmas 2020 The 2nd Holy Night
"The Christmas mystery must be found anew. We must become as devout with Nature as the shepherds were devout in their hearts. We must become as wise in our inner intuition as the Magi had become in their observation of the planets and stars in space and time." ~ Rudolf Steiner quote from the Search for the New Isis

The Holy Nights Series: Christmas Eve the 1st Holy Night
Each of the 12 days & 13 nights – From the Eve of the Sacred Birth, to the Eve of Epiphany, can be seen as a microcosmic experience of the macrocosm, allowing us to approach the sublime gesture of the divine spiritual beings, whose outer vestments are the constellations of the zodiac – while simultaneously contemplating the events in our own lives, in order to uncover the golden threads connecting us to each other, as well as to the goals of Earth evolution, & to the divine spiritual nature that comes to birth again & again at this darkest time of year. This sacred ‘Time out of Time’ provides an opportunity to contemplate, not only the great journey of the Cosmic Christ thru the zodiac into the body of Jesus; but also the path of Jesus to Christ; as well the evolution of every Human Being as a Star unfolding in an Earthly biography – for we as human beings are following both paths. ~hag

#5. The 10:10 How to
I often find that I need a little help to be able to “Think Light”. So sometimes I like to use these Steiner verses as a lead in: In purest outpoured light Shimmers the godhead of the World In purest love toward all that lives Outpours the godhood of my soul I rest within the godhead of the world There shall I find myself Within the godhead of the world (Repeat, knowing you are shimmering along with the godhead) Or this verse: More radiant than the sun Purer than the snow Subtler than the ether Is the Self The spirit within my heart I am that Self That Self am I When I have sufficiently infused my thinking with light I speak, the ‘Key-call’ -  the verse which I think of as the anchor for our Thought-seed: “When I think light, my soul shines, When my soul shines, the earth is a star, When the earth is a star, then I am, a true human being”. in reverse: I am a true human being When the earth is a star The earth is a star When my soul shines My soul shines When I think light.

#2. Egregore
Let's reclaim, & put to work, this ancient term egregore, from the Greek word meaning “Watcher” – a thought-form created by will and visualization. And when intentionally created, this energy becomes a kind of entity with the power to help and influence.
