We hope that you will find these vignettes, and the selected passages on Truth, to be helpful in the search for Absolute Truth, the substance of what can be found in Anthroposophy through Rudolf Steiner’s profound insight. It is also of great interest to our study of Anthroposophy to see some of the source documents that Steiner was reading as he developed his comprehensive world view – cosmology. We greatly appreciate being pointed in the direction of these early ‘pre-school theosophists’ so that further insights about Truth could be unearthed.

Douglas has selected passages on the heart from Rudolf Steiner’s immense library of wisdom. This is Chapter Five of the online book ‘The Human Heart is a Supersensible Organ of Perception’.
The northern regions were thought to be a land of everlasting life or renewal of life where special beings might be found. In the ancient epochs of the earth there were beings who dwelt in the polar regions who had poorly developed physical bodies but highly developed ether bodies with great clairvoyant faculties.
They could understand the wisdom of the stars and the hierarchies of spiritual beings; they belonged to a “group soul” of an advanced nature. They can be thought of as living in the air in a kind of paradise and were not dependent on the earth.
They were to develop over time into the more advanced human beings of Atlantis.
Neoanthroposophy is not speculation nor spiritual research that “goes beyond” Steiner’s indications but is the continuing work of the spiritual beings Rudolf Steiner has lead us to. Neo means new and in this case means “new insight” into the indications of Steiner. Steiner gave us enough spiritual wisdom from the hierarchy to fill our spiritual research for hundreds of years. We can search through the newest discoveries in science and find that Steiner has already addressed these discoveries almost a century ago.
Join us for a virtual lecture series on history’s most notable masters and avatars.
Ancient Indian lineages carried great wisdom for thousands of years in an unbroken oral tradition back to Manu and the Seven Holy Rishis. Those who were fully clairvoyant in ancient times were able to directly perceive the nature of the interaction between physical matter and spirit.
Here’s how it happened. Not long after the first Star Wars movie came out, I was working in the Waldorf bookstore.My boss and mentor, Werner Glas, stuck his head in the doorway and said, “Douglas, a friend of Marcia Lucas is on the phone and she has too many questions for me to handle. Would you please speak with her and answer all of her questions?”
Every spiritual tradition has reverence for the elders who are called many names: ascended masters, descended avatars, bodhisattvas who become buddhas, the Mother Lodge of the Sun, the Masters of Wisdom, saints, prophets, tulkus, arahats, yogis, yoginis, yidams, great initiates, shamans, kahunas, deities, devas, and hierarchical beings, to name but a few. The distinctions between these vastly different ranks of human and spiritual beings are often confused and deserve clear definition so that discernment can follow.
Every complete system of the spirit has seven parts. As students of anthroposophy know, humans are currently in the fourth large stage of evolution. And because we are only in the fourth stage of evolution, it may be challenging to understand how the fifth through seventh stages may be so incredibly different in dimension and consciousness. The subsequent stages are much more that a reorganization of the elements we experience in the fourth stage of evolution.
