Steiner told us to read the Kalevala, the Finnish national epic, as a guidebook for the challenges of our time. Few Anthroposophists have ever read this book, but if they did they would notice that the challenges presented to the three heroes are the same challenges we meet in our own age. It is recognition of evil and its control over your desires that is displayed in the plot of the Kalevala. They are fighting to win the Sampo, a free-energy device that produces gold, salt, and meal. The owner of this magic machine would be the wealthiest person on the earth.
