    The man is a genius But my advice to anyone who has never read Steiner? Try to stay awake Black coffee and a bright reading lamp This was my first Steiner book and I slept while reading it than I did at nightI believe his writings are all translated from lectures and such It is hard to get used to the indepth style of writing especially after reading writings of current authorsSteiner was born in mid 1800 He didn't actually go public with his writings until late into the 1800'sHe was a true pioneer in how to find one's self One of the lessons he taught was of karma and reincarnation and how the spirit world and the physical world come together and work together He created Anthroposophy which teaches a person how to tune their senses and find their inner spirit and nurture it to evolve their consciousness I believe that everyone at some point in their lives should read this book or Theosophy An Introduction to the Supersensible Knowledge of the World and the Destination of Man also a great bookA brillant philosopher and a very learned man

    This book speaks with vigor and authority about things that most of us spend our lives studiously trying to ignoreSometime in late adolescence I became aware that my life had a spiritual dimension and even a spiritual purpose I might not have put it that way at the time but I had developed a seasick feeling that all of my notions of about life and its aims were inadeuate and wrong I had no idea what to replace them with so I embarked on a search that in time got me looking at the great religions of the world While I did hear of a thing called the perennial philosophy which taught that all the spiritual traditions share fundamental beliefs I couldn't help noticing that the religions were also very different from each other and made conflicting claims about many thingsIn my late 20s I joined a Vajrayana Buddhist congregation and felt that I had found my spiritual home But a thought that also occurred to me was that all these various issues addressed by religions things such as what happens when we die what are the fundamental aspects of reality is there an unseen world and are there sentient beings beyond what we can cognize with our senses are fundamentally uestions of fact just as uestions about the natural world are uestions of fact The world religions have different things to say about these various uestions but my thought was that these thing shouldn't be articles of faith but matters that could in principle be decided objectively one way or the other somehow or another I thought that it should be possible to bring a scientific attitude to matters of the spiritI didn't realize it but I had reinvented the impulse behind theosophy the spiritual movement that took shape in the 19th century popularized by Helena Blavatsky Knowing nothing about it I'd always assumed it was just flaky New Age mumbo jumbo Having arrived at the Buddhist path my need to look into other things died down so I gave it no thought for the next couple of decadesIn recent years though my interest has flared up again Not that I'm dissatisfied with the Buddhist teachings I just find myself interested to hear what other traditions have to say I'm a Western Buddhist which means that I am practicing these teachings in a melting pot of other spiritual ideas some of which may be uite valuable And then there is still the uestion of what are the factsI searched for books on theosophy and this one by Rudolf Steiner appeared to be a promising introduction And I was not disappointed In this primer first published in English in 1910 Steiner an Austrian philosopher and Goethe scholar lays out the fundamental principles of theosophy the science of the spirit Both Steiner himself and Michael Holdrege the author of the foreword to this edition warn that the material is difficult and cannot simply be absorbed in a casual reading An active intellectual effort is reuired of the reader to reach out and take hold of what Steiner is presenting And here I must agree for even though I'm used to reading challenging texts I found that this one made unaccustomed demands on my attention and my imaginationThis is largely because the subject matter is the unseen realms of reality and these are being discussed with language that was invented to help us communicate about the sensory world But there is also the issue of the inherent subtlety of the ideas themselves and even their surprising complexity at times One of the most mind stretching teachings in the book is that the human being has 7 different bodies or components of which our physical body is but one For now I can only say that I've been introduced to that idea; it will take time for me to reflect on what it meansHowever for most purposes it's convenient to look at the human being as composed of 3 familiar elements body soul and spirit Steiner clearly explains what these things mean and how we need to orient ourselves to them in order to live full worthwhile human lives In brief body is the realm of sensations; soul is the realm of urges and feelings; spirit is the realm of thought In these 3 realms which we all occupy simultaneously we seek to move toward beauty goodness and truth respectivelyThere are things here which conflict with the Buddhist teachings as I understand them Steiner talks about our immortal or eternal aspects including the I while Buddhism denies the existence of any lasting soul But I'm at a stage of life where I don't feel I need to go eitheror with these ideas; I feel that they can be in dialogue with each other and that the truth can be found this way Certainly I do feel deep down a desire to move toward beauty goodness and truthWhy are we here? What are we doing with our human lives? These are important uestions and this book is a portal to the road of discovering the answers for ourselves

    For reasons indicated here I do not even want to rate this book My views on Steiner are so complex and so likely to be misunderstood that I would rather not reduce them to soundbitesI simply want to say I have read this book and that whilst Steiner served to free me from Eastern Theosophy and the New Age scene I found at Findhorn Valentin Tomberg in turn provided me with a very different hermeneutic with which to engage SteinerI hope the above link however can contribute a little to the tangled issues involving Steiner and Tomberg and why I believe this very different hermeneutic is necessary for a world plunging into a cold as steel mechanised society
