Part of the “Shining a Light Into the Darkness” series by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Anthroposophical Branch and Ideas Lending Library in Kimberton Village, this lecture was given to illuminate how the subtle realm of becomings can be an image for healing, or for ill.
As social challenges are intensifying, we are called upon more urgently to develop new capacities in understanding the human being, nature, and medicine in wholeness. This series will focus on historical thinking influences which still darkly affect the soul of every modern human being.
Because we see everywhere today that the “light shines into the darkness and the darkness comprehends it not,” what is our response to the recognition of darkness which lives within the thinking of each of us?Description for “Shining a Light into Darkness” series.
The capacity to see more deeply into the subtle patterns in nature was described by Rudolf Steiner as etheric vision. He also used the term living picture imagination that has its roots in what the poet Goethe called higher beholding.
Human physiological development of organs in pre-birth times is a template for what later becomes the life of the soul. Perceiving the dialogue between organ systems and the consciousness of a human being forms a basis for insight into the etheric realm. This is revealed in the esoteric law of organ formation. In this web of activity, the True Self or “I” acts as fulcrum for the dynamic between the body, the soul, and a higher beholding of destiny issues that influence health, learning capacities and emotional balance.
For an individual, the development of living picture imagination creates the capacity for forming therapeutic, diagnostic schema.
The final theme of the lecture will be the polarity of propaganda as an illness producing force and placebo as a constant force for healing.
