There is an underpinning cosmology behind mythology, religion and spiritual philosophy that can orient the aspirant to the three streams of past, present, and future. Cosmology provides meaning and purpose to life and can develop the confidence and faith one needs to traverse the threshold between the physical and spiritual worlds. Rudolf Steiner reminds us that Americans have the mission to develop a new cosmology that transforms the technological evils into soul and spiritual qualities that transcend time and space, thus alleviating fear, doubt and hatred while unveiling the true nature of the human being – a microcosm of the macrocosm.
Douglas Gabriel and guest Chris Fessler discuss the differences between Anthroposophy and the teachings of Rudolf Steiner from two different points of view – one from inside of the Anthroposophical Society and the other from without. Does a student of Steiner need the Anthroposophical Society to develop a sound understanding of Steiner’s spiritual science? The distinctions between Anthroposophy and Neoanthroposophy highlight the relevance of Steiner’s teachings for the modern world with or without the support of other Anthroposophists.
Douglas Gabriel and Douglas Reed discuss the relevance of Anthroposophy and the teachings of Dr. Rudolf Steiner in a modern context. They highlight the common threads found in Zen Buddhism, Mormonism, Scientology and other streams. The conversation leads to an analysis of Steiner’s threefold social order and Doug Reed’s experience in “living” these ideologies through his work with John Stirling Walker, the Institute for Hypostatic Science, and its Brotherhood Project. Doug Reed’s lifetime as a Broadway music director gives him great insight into contemporary American life and spiritual development.
