The Effect of Occult Development Upon the Self and the Sheaths of Man, by Rudolf SteinerA lecture series by Rudolf Steiner

Translated by Harry Collison
GA 145

On-line since: 31st August, 2012

 Read it here: http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA145/English/RSPC1945/OccDev_index.html

Steiner delineates the almost imperceptible changes that take place in the physical body’s experience of food as a consequence of spiritual development. He goes on to describe how we develop an inner experience of the etheric body and how our judgments, feeling, and willing are transformed. Gradually we are led to a direct perception of the reality of the great legends, notably the Paradise story and the Holy Grail legend.

These 10 lectures were given by Rudolf Steiner in March, 1913 at The Hague. They are a part of the lecture series entitled, What Significance Has Occult Development of the Human for the Sheaths: Physical Body, Etheric Body, Astral Body, and the Self, published in German as, Welche Bedeutung Hat die Okkulte Entwickelung des Menschen Fuer Seine Huellen – Physischen Leib, Aetherleib, Astralleib – Und Sein Selbst? (vol. 145 in the Bibliographic Survey).

This lecture, Das Geheimnis des Todes, was given in Zürich, January 31, 1915, and is included in Volume 159 of the Bibliographic Survey, 1961. It has been translated from notes unrevised by the lecturer, by an unknown translator with some emendations.

Here, the four Platonic Virtues (described in The Republic) are developed in the direction of that comprehensive picture of man’s threefold being — the head-system, the rhythmic system, and the metabolic and limb system — of which Steiner gave the first full description in 1917, and which is summed up in the Foundation Stone Meditation in 1923.

The lecture has been authorized for the Western hemisphere by, and published here by kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.

The Tension Between East and West

The Tension Between East and West - CoverBy Rudolf Steiner

Translation by B. A. Rowley
GA 83

On-line since: 15th August, 2012

Read it, here: http://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/GA083/English/HS1963/TenBet_index.html

Given during the East-West Congress of 1922 in Vienna, these challenging lectures lift the veil from modern social and spiritual problems by exploring historical and philosophical paradoxes found in Eastern and Western ways of life. Steiner emphasizes the need to develop new mental faculties to bridge the gulf between matter and spirit, faculties that will provide conscious social certainties to replace uncertain instincts.

The first half of this volume builds up the foundation of knowledge; the second half gives the impulse to right action.

Translated by B. A. Rowley, and with a Foreword by Owen Barfield, this volume is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
