A truly an amazing presentation with a message that deserves to be known far and wide! One thought I have is that it could possibly be turned into a documentary.[1]

From "The Arts and Their Mission"[2]

"... In ancient India man did not speak of the ego in our modern way; it was not, for him, a point comprising all his soul experiences. On the contrary, when he spoke of the ego it was to him self-evident that it had little to do with earth and earth events. In experiencing himself as an ego, man did not feel that he belonged to the earth; but, rather, that he was connected with the heaven of the fixed stars. This was what gave him the sense and security of his deepest self. For it was not felt as a human ego. Man was a human being only through the fact that here on earth he was clothed by a physical body. Through this sheath-for-the-ego he became a citizen of earth. But the ego was regarded as something foreign to the earthly sphere. And if today we were to coin a name for the way the ego was experienced, we would have to say: man felt not a human but a divine ego."[3]

Inspired to generate Steiner's Human Design chart with interest to identify his Solar Plexus Center.[4]

Most amazing! Just read up to this page:

and intend to continue "tomorrow"

[2] One of my first Steiner Books (along with The Inner Nature of Music that were two of my birthday presents in 1989) influential in attracting me to enter a Steiner community and that resulted in my attending Rudolf Steiner College as of 1990. We did not get to "wagnerheim" at that time however we most certainly entered into Mozart's "Magic Flute"!

"... Truth, for Steiner, is paradoxically both an objective discovery and yet 'a free creation of the human spirit, that never would exist at all if we did not generate it ourselves. The task of understanding is not to replicate in conceptual form something that already exists, but rather to create a wholly new realm, that together with the world given to our senses constitutes the fullness of reality.'

A new stage of Steiner's philosophical development is expressed in his Philosophy of Freedom. Here, he further explores potentials within thinking: freedom, he suggests, can only be approached asymptotically and with the aid of the "creative activity" of thinking. Thinking can be a free deed; in addition, it can liberate our will from its subservience to our instincts and drives. Free deeds, he suggests, are those for which we are fully conscious of the motive for our action; freedom is the spiritual activity of penetrating with consciousness our own nature and that of the world, and the real activity of acting in full consciousness.:133–4 This includes overcoming influences of both heredity and environment: 'To be free is to be capable of thinking one's own thoughts – not the thoughts merely of the body, or of society, but thoughts generated by one's deepest, most original, most essential and spiritual self, one's individuality.'"
