In Chapter Four of Douglas Gabriel’s book on the human heart, we examine the thought of great thinkers about the nature of the heart.
According to Rudolf Steiner, it is important that mankind creates a spiritual compensation, a counterweight to the past, when the heart was a God-given, a God-protected organ. Human beings must connect the separated etheric heart to the spiritual world through a transformed thinking and feeling life. In our age they need to find a new Michaelic (Archangel Michael) path on which they search for the truth, then they will find the right way to this cosmically created third etheric heart.
This new spiritual and dynamic path gives man the possibility to structure his etheric heart organ as a sense organ ever more in the greatest possible diversity.
The heart is an amazing organ. As it opens, you will begin to perceive a world that you never knew was around you. Like a person who might be given sight or hearing for the first time and sees and hears things never experienced; those sights and sounds were always there, but the person didn’t have the proper organ of perception.
To grow a spiritual ladder upon which to climb out of the darkness and into the light, one must rarify the spirit through morality training and higher thoughts. At the same time, the physiological effects that accompany this transcendence are wondrous. In anthroposophy, the process by which the spiritual journey is expressed within our body is known as the etherization of the blood, or the earthly and cosmic nutrition stream.
