- October 6 - The Reflection Point of the Spirit of the Year
Once we have celebrated St. Michael's Day, we find ourselves at that point in the year when, having completed the expansion of man's soul in the hot summer days, we return to the depths of man's being, following the fall of the rain from the clouds to the ground, the fall of the leaves from the trees to the ground. Now our inner eyes are fully opened and we can realize what it means to die outwardly in order to rise inwardly. Once the blade of Michael's sword is formed from the sidereal iron, we descend along the edge of his blade until we reach its tip, where the will is concentrated: from the will of the cosmos we pass to the individual will that is able to place the Dragon in its own sphere, only there its power can be placed at the service of the spiritual world without corrupting the life of man. And as we join Michael in this endeavor that unites the celestial heights with the human depths, we observe how nature around us decays and how everything that until six months before had given us outward delight is now the image of composition. We find ourselves in the Spirit of the Year Reflection Point, where the hopes that lived in the Resurrection forces of the previous spring, with outward expansion, now find their inner fulfillment. Where six months earlier, in the spring, we saw the seeds of the previous sowing grow, we now see the leaves fall from those same trees that gave themselves so prodigiously then. It is a time when it is more difficult to be in the presence of others because everyone begins to be taken by the forces of the outer end of things: one feels melancholy for what has been and one must make an effort to see what will not be, still all one in the darkness. It is at this moment that the effort is required to overcome the attachment to external forms that, however beautiful they may have been, are destined to become forms that constrain the life that wants to flow beyond. All forms are vehicles of life: forms are made for man's evolution, not man's evolution for the forms themselves. Where spring was expansion into space, autumn is combustion, the return to essence. All that outwardly has performed its function dissolves and leaves the inner image of itself, that part which, not being bound to the sensible form, can continue its life as supersensible substance. It is capable of enduring when outward death seizes nature and when it is nourished by means of thoughts, feelings and actions filled with the supersensible, it enables one to arrive at the period of Advent and the 13 Holy Nights with a consciousness that is alive and awake, in turn capable of expanding into new outward forms in the following spring and summer, and so on. In other words, by joining Michael's living thinking, we are able to see the forms as means and not as the end, so that the flow of thought flows through them, to the point that the decomposition of the old dead forms becomes a joy of liberation for the pure living force of thought can then flow. Here, then, we can also say that in the Point of Reflection of the Spirit of the Year, it reveals itself to man showing how to live an autumn of forms, generated by the past, which are burned in the purifying fire of Michael and, joining the living thought of Michael himself, we can come to experience an inner spring, the rebirth of the ego within the soul of man, a process that will be fully accomplished in the solemn moment of Epiphany. It is thus that the Spirit of the Year, a Spirit of the Cyclic Periods descending from the First Hierarchy, enters into the sphere of action of the Archai, who insert it into the texture of time, which on the one hand repeats itself incessantly, reflecting its very being between autumn and spring and, on the other, internalizing that which in the previous seasons was exterior, giving birth inwardly, on a higher arc, to that which of subtlety has freed itself from death in form.
- I 3 Logoi della Santissima Trinità
Since the Trinity is the first and last essence of all cosmic evolution, physical as well as spiritual, it is not at all easy to explain in words and concepts. However, Rudolf Steiner's anthroposophy gives us a very profound conception of the Trinity. In the light of the science of the spirit Father, Son and Holy Spirit become comprehensible under a multiplicity of aspects and relationships that nevertheless refer to each other, following a series of metamorphoses. However, I must give a warning, so that no misunderstandings can be created: this study has no claim to "explain" the Mystery of the Trinity and its relations with other spiritual beings. Quite the contrary. The intention of this scientific-spiritual study is to "unfold" the relations between the Trinity and other spiritual beings, so as to provide a map of relations through which to orient oneself. The Trinity is the most grandiose and sacred mystery of which man is a witness:for this reason it is necessary to become aware of it. The aim is for each individual to establish an individual relationship with the being and the mystery of the Trinity. This study will in fact demonstrate that the anthroposophical conception of the Trinity opens boundless horizons to the spiritualseeker who investigates its essence and manifestation. Like any other study on this blog, there may be inaccuracies and errors that I will be happy to discuss, modify and correct. Logosophy, the Holy Trinity The Trinity is first of all composed of the Three Logoi: First Logos Second Logos Third Logos Questi Tre Logoi sono conosciuti con diversi nomi nelle varie tradizioni spirituali: nell’induismo sono noti come Trimurti (Brahma, Visnu e Shiva); nello gnosticismo come Protennoia Trimorfica (Padre, Madre, Figlio); nella religione egiziana come Osiride, Iside e Horus. Ma nonostante queste differenze superficiali la concezione della triplice divinità è comune a tutta l’umanità, mentre la assume la manifestazione più consona a quel dato popolo grazie all’intervento delle guide spirituali dell’umanità di ogni periodo storico. In the Jewish Kabbalah the Three Logoi take the name of: First Logos: Ain, the Nothing Second Logos: Ain Soph, the Unlimited Third Logos: Ain Soph Aur, the Unlimited Light In orphism, the cosmos is born from an egg on which the serpent of Eternity, the Uroboros, is wrapped several times (4 or7). In the cosmic egg the coils of the snake Uroboros, from the original circle, are divided into four circles, or the four worlds, and then into seven circles, or the orbits of the planets. These three principles, like the Christian Trinity, then give rise to all creation through the emanation of the ten Sephiroths that make up the Tree of Life. They are three shells that make up the triple shell of the cosmic egg (or orphic egg) inside which there is the space within which creation takes place and the Tree of Life germinates. When in the Middle Ages the Kabbalah entered Christian mystical circles, it was understood that in Jewish esoteric wisdom the Trinity was prefigured and that therefore the Trinitarian conception must already have been part of the original Christianity. For this reason it, although only implicit in the Gospels, is adopted as the truth of tradition by the Catholic Church. Even within anthroposophy, the Christian terminology of the three Persons of the Trinity is used: Primo Logos: Father Second Logos: Son Third Logos: Holy Spirit Despite the male declination, it is necessary to conceive the Trinity as non-sexual even though in its manifestations it can alternatively assume active or passive polarity to carry out the plan of Creation. We will see later on the relationships that exist between the three Persons. The Trinity and the Tripartite Man But if anthroposophy adopts Catholic terminology, it distances itself from its conception in relation to man. In Catholicism, in fact, the Trinity is a totally transcendent god who leaves man rather abandoned in a "valley of tears" such as the Earth. For anthroposophy (but also in other esoteric ways), instead, man contains in himself the Trinitarian principle, even if at a less elevated spiritual evolutionary level. For this reason, the Trinity is also reflected in the occult constitution of the human being, that is, in the tripartition in body,soul and spirit which in turn are the reflection of the powers of the soul (wanting, feeling, thinking). Thus, as is indicated in the Meditation of the Foundation Stone: Father: will in the limbs (body) Son: feel in the spare (soul) Holy Spirit: thinking in the head (spirit) And in turn the Trinity is reflected in the threefold spirit of man: Father in the Spirit-Man or the physical body transformed by the I Son in the Vital Spirit, the etheric body transformed by the I Holy Spirit in the Spiritual Self, the astral body transformed by the I These are the emanations of the very essence of the Three Logos of the Trinity within the microcosm of man. In fact, it can be said that just as authentic esotericism recognizes the tripartition in body, soul and spirit, so authentic esotericism must admit the tripartition of God in the Trinity. Having a spirit, man is potentially a participant of the Trinity, he can grasp its existence and conversely man can be understood by his Creator. In this sense the Trinity is immanent in man. The Catholic Church instead decreed the total division between man and the Trinity, when in the Council of Constantinople in 869 A.D. it introduced the dualistic conception of man in body and soul, denying the spirit. The Trinity in Eternity If we then ascend from the microcosm to the macrocosm, and then further on, outside of space-time, into Eternity, we alsohave that the Trinity is transcendent to Creation itself: The Father is Consciousness in Eternity, He creates consciousness from nothing but draws experience from the previous evolutionary chain; The Son is Life in Eternity, he gives life to consciousness by creating a being; The Holy Spirit is the Form in Eternity, he produces beings endowed with form. These are the continuous actions that from Eternity pour into the flow of cosmic evolution, making it not only possible in principle, but also existing both in space-time and in the eternal present. This fundamental activity of the Trinity never fails, while its manifestation changes within evolution itself, as we shall see later. The hidden constitution of the Trinity In fact, although the Trinity is in Eternity, that is, beyond the time span described by the Seven Metamorphoses of the Earth, its lower constituent limbs extend within the space and time of Creation. These spiritual arts correspond to how the Three Logoi enter into relation with the angelic choirs of the First, Second and Third Hierarchy: The Father enters into relation with the First Hierarchy of Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones and thus with the will of man in the Man-Spirit and in the physical body; The Son enters into relation with the Second Hierarchy of Dominations, Virtues and Elohim and therefore with man's feeling in the Vital Spirit and in the etheric body; The Holy Spirit enters into relation with the Third Hierarchy of Archai, Archangels and Angels and therefore with man's thinking in the Spiritual Self and in the astral body. In this way are indicated the relationships present in the Foundation Stone given by Steiner at the Christmas Convention of 1923/1924. The Trinity and the Spiritual Hierarchies Each of the Persons of the Trinity has a closer relationship with one of the Spiritual Hierarchies as a whole, and with one of the angelic choirs in particular. When one of the three Persons manifests itself it does so through a particular angelic hierarchy and choir which it leads: The color blue refers to the relationship with the Father, red to that with the Son and yellow to that with the Holy Spirit. Although the Trinity is active in all Spiritual Hierarchies, individual Persons are more in relation to a specific Hierarchy and choir: The Father (blue) is in close connection with the First Hierarchy as a whole and with the choirs of Thrones (1st), Dominations (2nd), Principalities (3rd); the Son with the Second Hierarchy as a whole, with the choirs of Seraphim (1a), Power (2a), Archangels (3rd) and Man (10th); the Holy Spirit with the Third Hierarchy as a whole and with the choirs of Cherubim (1st), Virtue (2nd), Angels (3rd). In the manifestation of creation, when the cosmic will of the Father comes into action, it descends from Eternity into the flow of evolution through the Thrones or Spirits of Will, then through the Dominations or Spirits of Wisdom and finally through the Principalities or Spirits of Time. As a whole, then, the action of the First Hierarchy is a reflection of the cosmic consciousness of the Father, whereby in their exterior life they create worlds, in their interior life they create beings who are their descendants in nature. These are the Spirits of the Cyclical Periods who operate in all the cyclical alternations of time: the alternation of day and night, the alternation of seasons. They form the Ego of the Earth and coordinate the animal, vegetable and animal group souls, as well as the elementals. The feeling of the Son instead manifests itself through the Seraphim, followed by the Powers and the Archangels. An important manifestation at the level of the Archangels was that of the three super-sensitive sacrifices of Christ which took place before the Mystery of Golgotha. This entity, born of the union of Christ and an Archangel, was the Adamic soul of the Jesus of Luke's Gospel, untouched by the expulsion from the Earthly Paradise. Christ then became incarnated in the body of Jesus of Nazareth, thus sanctioning his union with the destiny of humanity and the Earth of which he became the Spirit. The life of the Son is then expressed through the Second Hierarchy as a whole: outwardly they express themselves through the creation of the group souls of plants and animals to which they remain linked, while inwardly they stimulate the life of these same beings. On the whole, the descendants of the Second Hierarchy are the astral body (soul) of the Earth. The thinking of the Holy Spirit is manifested through the Cherubim, which are the spirits who preside over the signs of the zodiac, then over the Virtues or Spirits of the Movement, and finally over the Angels, especially the Guardian Angels of human beings. As a whole, the Third Hierarchy works for the Holy Spirit: outwardly they express themselves through the production of the elementals, while interiorly they experience the fullness of their spirit. On the whole they are the etheric body of the Earth. The Trinity in cosmic evolution The Three Logoi are also the reason behind the triple seven (777) or completion number: in fact, after 7 x 7 x 7 = 343 stages of development, in spiritual evolution is achieved the completion of that evolutionary chain. Everything that happens after these 343 stages occurs as the beginning of another evolutionary chain (following the law of the superior octave). Each Logos is represented in this mystical number by a single 7 so that the highest number of completion occurs in the relationship between God, Macrocosm and Microcosm: 7 First Logos: God. 7 Second Logos: Macrocosm 7 Third Logos: Microcosm The Three Logoi: the first Logos, God or the Father; the second Logos, Macrocosm or the Son; the third Logos, Microcosm or the Holy Spirit. The Three Logos manifest themselves in evolution according to the relationships given by the number of completion 777: First Logos: 7 Metamorphoses of the Earth existing as archetypes in Eternity; Second Logos: 7 Elohim creators of the Macrocosm; Third Logos: 7 Chakras as etheric organs of the Microcosm. The completion of these three evolutionary series will occur at the end of the Future Vulcan, when man will have become a creator, completing the conquest of the seventh chakra, the basal one, and with it the foundation of the physical body. Atthat point we reach the end of the present planetary chain: the Earth will become a fixed star, the new Sun, and finally from a fixed star it will become the future zodiacal belt. In this process the cosmos of love of Vulcan will sacrifice itself, cavitating, thus becoming the new Zodiac of the next creation of the Man-God. Within the 7 Metamorphoses of the Earth, each Person of the Trinity is more active within a particular pair of planetary metamorphoses: Father: Ancient Saturn + Future Volcano i.e. 1 = 7 in the Upper Devachan. In the Ancient Saturn the Father acted through the Thrones or Spirits of Will in charge of man's evolution; Son: Ancient Sun + Future Venus i.e. 2 = 6 in the Lower Devachan. In the Ancient Sun the Son acted through the Dominations or Spirits of Wisdom; Holy Spirit: Ancient Moon + Future Jupiter i.e. 3 = 5 in the Astral World. In the Ancient Moon the Holy Spirit acted through the Virtues or Spirits of the Movement. Within the metamorphosis of the Earth, instead, the last constitutive limb of the Trinity, the Spirits of Form or Elohim, acted as those charged of the evolution of the human being. Moreover, at the passage between the half Mars and the half Mercury, Christ, the Son, is incarnated in the body of Jesus of Nazareth in order to fulfill the Mystery of Golgotha. Finally, as intermediaries between humanity and Christ, there are 7 Masters of Wisdom and Harmony of Feelings, part of the Circle of 12 Bodhisattvas. The Elohim then reflect through their spiritual activity throughout creation because, as representatives of the physical body of the Trinity, they are responsible for the actual work of Creation. The macrocosm as a whole is therefore the ultimate manifestation of God's physical body, a crystallization of the forming activity of the Elohim. The macrocosmic creation of the Elohim is followed hierarchically by the action of the seven archangels of the ages. Steiner specifies that three of these are particularly related to the activity of one of the Three Logoi: Anael of Venus directs the power of the Father's consciousness that creates the centers of consciousness of existence; Michael of the Sun directs the power of the Son's life by infusing it into the Father's ideas, ideas thus become beings; Samael of Mars directs the power of the form of the Holy Spirit giving it to the life created by the Son, thus creating living forms. The Trinity and the Trinity of Evil We can then consider the numerology that the Trinity adumbrates: the Trinity is expressible as 3, that is, the sum of the three Persons in One = 111. Since each of the three Persons relates to itself and to the other two Persons, we arrive at 3 times the three Persons = 333. 333 is therefore the number of the internal relations of the Trinity in Eternity. The sum of three times three is 9, the number of the occult constitution of man (triple body, triple soul, triple spirit) and of the angelic choirs, the agents of the Trinity (Father: First Hierarchy, Son: Second Hierarchy, Holy Spirit: Third Hierarchy). If we multiply the 3 of each of the Persons of the Trinity by the 3 angelic choirs through them, we obtain 999, which is the opposite of 666 the number of the Beast. Therefore, if through 999 the Trinity manifests itself in evolution, in the same way the man proceeds in evolution; in 666 its opposite occurs and therefore man proceeds in involution under the number of the Antichrist. The Trinity of Evil is opposed to the Trinity, but while Father, Son, Holy Spirit also exist in Eternity; Asura, Arimane and Lucifer exist only in the sphere of evolution and therefore they will come to some extent rendered by human spiritual action. Only Sorath, the solar demon, exists outside of time and space. 666 can be considered the number of the Trinity of Evil (Asura-Arimane-Lucifer), that is, the overthrow of the perfect square of the Trinity 333. In the sphere of evolution Asura is the overthrown Father (body), Arimane is the overthrown Son (soul), Lucifer is the overthrown Holy Spirit (spirit). But in the sphere of Eternity there is only one being, the Anti-God, called Sorath the solar demon and antichrist par excellence. But not only: 666 is also a precise indication of a series of evolutionary stages of the Earth: at the sixth metamorphosis, sixth condition of life and sixth condition of form of the Earth (666) the great barrier will be completed: the definitive separation of the planetary chain of the Earth from the alternative one governed by the powers of the obstacle (luciferic, arimanic, asuric and the antichrist Sorath), the Eighth Sphere, will be complete. Evolved humanity will have redeemed evil and will be free to proceed in evolution until it reaches the divine stage. The rest of humanity is no longer human, it is trapped in the Eighth Sphere and will be led towards an evolution among the choruses of the asuric, arimanic or luciferic powers of the obstacle. The Trinity and the Zodiac Let now see the Trinity with respect to number 12, that is, the circle of the Zodiac. If we place the spiritual constitution of the Trinity alongside the sequence of the zodiac signs we have, that: First Logos Second Logos Third Logos They are in Eternity. It follows the occult constitution according to the Zodiac: The Father corresponds to the Zodiac in its entirety. Aries: Son (the Lamb) Bull: Holy Spirit Gemini: Seraphim Cancer: Cherubim Lion: Thrones Virgin: Dominations Libra: Virtue Scorpio: Elohim Sagittarius: Archai Aquarius: Archangels Capricorn: Angels Pisces: Man The constitution of the Trinity can be understood if we take into account that its bodies are actually entire angelic choirs endowed with their own identity, spiritual role and consciousness. Obviously these bodies are not subject to decay like thesubtle bodies of ordinary man: God's constituent limbs behave, at an immeasurably higher level, like the subtle bodies of the most sublime initiates who continue their evolution by acting from the spiritual world. The constitution of the Trinity can be understood if we take into account that its bodies are actually entire angelic choirs endowed with their own identity, spiritual role and consciousness. Obviously these bodies are not subject to decay like thesubtle bodies of ordinary man: God's constituent limbs behave, at an immeasurably higher level, like the subtle bodies of the most sublime initiates who continue their evolution by acting from the spiritual world. Or again, to render the same idea from another point of view, we can say that every body of God behaves in itself like the Self of man, which is the only part that continues its evolution without ever being born or dying (unnatal and immortal). Thus, the body (the First Hierarchy), the soul (the Second Hierarchy) and the spirit of the Trinity (the Third Hierarchy) of the Trinity continue to evolve over time, the Self of the Trinity is threefold and includes the Holy Spirit, Son and Father; while the three Logoi are in the sphere beyond evolution, that is, in Eternity. With the entire unfolding of his spiritual constitution, God is immanent in Creation and transcendent in Eternity. The point of connection between the Trinity as appeared in the evolution of the Ancient Saturn and the rest of evolution, resides in the sign of the Scorpio (Power or Elohim or Spirits of Form): it will be remembered that during the metamorphosis of the Ancient Saturn, in the region of the Scorpio took place the death of the "heat eggs" that constituted the cosmic mass existing in that remote condition of existence. There, in the region of Scorpio, is where the Spirits of Form exert their influence on the flow of Consciousness which is emanated by the Father (First Hierarchy) and of Life by the Son (Second Hierarchy) along the series of bodies of the Trinity. This flow is finally manifested as a Form created according to time (presided over by the Principalities or Archai or Spirits of Time), the people (Archangels or Spirits of the People) and individuals endowed with karma (Guardian Angels), thus returning to the Third Hierarchy, under the aegis of the Holy Spirit, the Person closest to man. These four choirs (Archai, Archangels, Angels, and Man) are the beings who passed their human stage in this planetary chain: The Archai were the men of the Ancient Saturn; The Archangels were the men of the Ancient Sun; The Angels were the men of the Ancient Moon; Man is the humanity of the Earth today. All these angelic choruses are linked to the event of the creation of the Phantom of man, the archetypal physical body, on the Ancient Saturn by means of the Sacrifice of the Thrones, from which the Archai took "body" in the form of time, in which all the successive metamorphoses of the planetary chain then existed. At the end of this series of metamorphoses we can unite what has been said above about the Trinity and the Spiritual Hierarchies, making the Science of the Spirit agree; with the emanations of God forming the branches of the Tree of Life in the Kabbalah; with the series of the Heavenly Spheres of Pythagoras and esoteric Christianity; with the astrological wisdom of the Chaldeans, up to the wisdom of ancient India given by the Seven Holy Rishi. Cosmosophy, the Seven Spirits of God Where Logosophy ends, Cosmosophy begins, which includes both the relationship between the Trinity and the 7 Planetary Spheres in which the Seven Spirits of God live. From the Trinity to the Seven Spirits of God But where does the relationship between the 3 in Eternity and the 7 in the Manifestation come from? They are the Seven Spirits of God or Seven Elohim. John, in his Revelation, describes the Seven Elohim four times. He calls them "the SevenSpirits standing before the Throne of God". These Seven Spirits were sent to Earth to fulfill Creation. Together they form a complex being, Elohim, formed by the Seven Elohim themselves: John to the seven Churches which are in Asia: grace to you and peace from Him who is, who was and who is to come, from the seven spirits who stand before His throne. - Revelation 1:4 To the angel of the Church of Sardis write: Thus speaks He who possesses the seven spirits of God and the seven stars: I know your works; you are believed to be alive, but instead you are dead. - Revelation 3:1 Out of the throne came lightning, voices and thunder; seven lamps lit burning before the throne, the symbol of the seven spirits of God. - Revelation 4:5 Then I saw standing upright in the midst of the throne surrounded by the four living creatures and by the waking ones a Lamb, as if immolated. He had seven horns and seven eyes, a symbol of the seven spirits of God sent upon the whole earth. - Revelation 5:6 The activity of the Trinity is expressed by following the number seven, for seven are the possible relationships between the three Persons of the Trinity. Bearing in mind that the Trinity in itself is always present in Eternity, the relationship changes if we enter into the passing of time. Initially the relation is between the First and the Second Logos (the following sketches are by Rudolf Steiner himself): In the First Logos Consciousness, Life and Form are still undifferentiated. The Father is therefore not manifest, he is the darkness of the Ain of the Kabbalah. Reflecting himself, he acquires self-consciousness and, by sacrificing his life, he originates the Second Logos or Ain Soph, the Unlimited Light. This Second Logos contains on the one hand the spiritual image of the First Logos, on the other hand its own nature, that is, the absolute desire for Life. Father and Son give life to beings endowed with Consciousness and Life, but without form. These beings are the Spiritual Hierarchies. In the course of cosmic evolution one can see a manifest reflection of this relationship in the passage from the metamorphosis of the Ancient Saturn to that of the Ancient Sun, in the respective manvatara (cosmic days). The Christian confessions that deny the Trinity stop at the reality of the First Logos, that is, they deny that it generated Life from Self-Consciousness. The confessions that instead come to conceive the Second Logos have found difficulty in understanding that it is twofold, containing both the spiritual image of the Father and the Life of the Son. From this misunderstanding arises the diatribe between monophysism and duophysism (or Nestorianism), as well as a whole series of Christological conceptions that vary on this theme. Then the Third Logos is added, which reflects within itself the other two Logoi: Logosophy: the relationship between the Three Logoi: a = First Logos (light of the spiritual world), bc = Second Logos; abc = Third Logos (a = spiritual darkness, b = absolute desire, c = the spiritual image of the First Logos). The Third Logos originates as a reflection of the other two Logoi and the relationships that exist between them. In it lives a triple reflection with the spiritual image of the First Logos, the mirror image of what the First Logos did in the Second (life or absolute desire), and finally what the Second Logos gave back to the First Logos (spiritual darkness). With the addition of the Third Logos the multiple manifestation of Creation within the Form can begin. In fact, with the third metamorphosis of the Ancient Moon, the forces of the Holy Spirit in which the Three Logoi operate descend. Once the Ancient Moon has ended, we pass to the Earth, where the Trinity is manifested as the Seven Elohim: they create the worldin seven days. In this triple reflection of the Holy Spirit there is the resolution of the "question of the Filioque" sanctioned in the Council of Toledo in 589: the Holy Spirit could not exist if there had not existed a reciprocal relationship between the Father and the Son. Now we can also understand in another light the words of Christ in Matthew 18,20: For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am among them. Since the Trinity is present within man as a triple spirit flowing from the Self, one man alone reflects the Father, a second reflects the Son, and in the relationship between them the Holy Spirit arises. When a third person is also present, there is the materialization of the work of the Holy Spirit, or Creation, as in the case of the union between man and woman to generate a third person, the Son. When the three human persons are united, they become the three Persons because Christ is in their midst. In the Indian tradition these three reflections of the Third Logos, the Holy Spirit, are called Guna and have a correspondence with the First Tria of Paracelsus in Alchemy: Tamas: the spiritual darkness (of the Third Logos) i.e. the Form, corresponds to the Philosophical Salt; Rajas: the absolute desire (of the Second Logos), that is, Life, corresponds to Philosophical Mercury; Sattwa: the spiritual image of the First Logos, that is, Consciousness, corresponds to the Philosophical Sulphur. The ways in which the potentialities of the Trinity are expressed within creation itself are the Seven Spirits Source of Dawn by Jacob Boehme also called Seven Spirits of God in John's Revelation (and also Seven Rays within Theosophy). These sublime spirits emerge from all the possible relations existing within the Third Logos which, as we have seen, contains in itself the image of the First and Second Logos: Father = Saturn Son = Jupiter Holy Spirit = Mars Father + Son = Sun + Moon Father + Holy Spirit = Venus Son + Holy Spirit = Mercury Father + Son + Holy Spirit = Earth In the relationship, from 1 (God), we pass to 2 (Father + Son) and from these to 3 (Trinity). Then from the relationship between the Persons of the Trinity we pass to 7 (of the planets in evolution and in the macrocosm). Cosmosophy: the seven possible relationships of the Trinity, where: a = First Logos, the Father; b = Second Logos, the Son; c = Third Logos, the Holy Spirit. From the Seven Spirits of God to the 21 Prajapati Indians If we then multiply these Seven Spirits of God with the three activities of the Trinity in Eternity, that is, Consciousness, Life, and Form (the three guna), we have: 3 x 7 = 21. This number refers to the spirits which in ancient Indian doctrine areindicated as Prajapati: 10 Prajapati of Consciousness (which are related to the Sephiroth of the Tree of Life and the Pythagorean Tetraktys). 6 Prajapati of Life (which are linked to the Seven Mysteries of Life) 5 Prajapati of Form (i.e. Platonic solids or four elements + ether) In the Book of Dzyan, the founding book of Theosophy found and interpreted by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, the Prajapatiwith their subdivisions are mentioned. The third verse of Room IV reads: 3) From the radiance of light, ray of eternal darkness, the awakened energies jumped into space: the One from the Egg, the Six and the Five. The interpretation of the verse according to what we have so far set forth is as follows: "From the radiance of eternal light, ray" = the Son, with his absolute desire... "of the Eternal Darkness" = the Father, with his unmanifest being... "Awakened energies jumped into space" = the Holy Spirit, with his manifest creation. "The One from the Egg = 1 from 0 = 10 Prajapati of Consciousness "The Six = 6 Prajapati of Life "The Five" = 5 Prajapati of Form Sacred Heart of Jacob Boehme: the heart is overturned to show inside the Tetraktys composed of the letters of the Tetragrammaton YHWH, which culminate in the Pentagrammaton, the name YHSWH or Jesus. The heart is then surrounded by the flaming Jesus Immanu-El, the angelic name given in the prophecy of Isaiah. The heart finally shines with the light of Christus, the Solar Spirit. As engraved, it should be noted that, as a whole, the number 1065 is the numerical value of Jehovah according to gematry. As we know Jehovah was the Eloah who shaped Adam's body from the elements, and who later sacrificed his solar existence to retreat to the Moon and from there guide the Jewish people. Jehovah therefore inspired the Old Testament, the Age of the Father (the age of the sentient soul), before the Age of the Son (the age of the rational soul) began. In this second Age is under the regency of Christ who is the inspirer of the New Testament. Then follows the Age of the Holy Spirit, in which we still find ourselves today (the age of the conscious soul). These are in essence the Three Ages of Joachim da Fiore's Earthly History. It is therefore not surprising to find this symbolic association between Tetraktys, Tetragrammaton, Pentagrammaton and Christ in Jacob Boehme. The concept of the Trinity in human evolution In the history of mankind there is a recapitulation of the concept of the Trinity in the passage from one cultural epoch to another: The first of the Prajapati is the Great Architect of the Universe or the creator of a planetary chain. In our planetary chain he is known as Vishvakarman: this was the name used by the Seven Rishi Saints to indicate the Solar Spirit, the Christ in the Ancient Paleo-Indian Era. The root "vak" contained in his name becomes then "vox" in Latin. Moreover, the title of Great Architect of the Universe is found as the highest expression of the divinity in Masonry (the G.A.O.T.U.) and other secret societies. It is from this understanding of God that all of the following arise, which follow one another in other eras of culture up to us. In the Ancient Paleo-Persian Era we come to conceive the dualism inherent in the Second Logos. In Zend-Avesta it is told that the primegenial god Zeruana Akarana or Zurvan the "Defeated Time" sacrificed his uroboric nature, dividing himself in two and thus generating the pair of twins Ahura Mazdao or Ormazd, the spirit of light, and Angra Mainyu or Ahriman, the spirit of darkness. Ahura Mazdao, the spirit of light created the world with her voice as described in Ahuna Vairya. In the third epoch, the Chaldeo-Egyptian one, the Egyptian initiates understood the Trinitarian nature of God, indicating it as Osiris, Isis and Horus. On the other hand, Moses wrote the Genesis in which the Seven Elohim create man and Earth through the Word. Thus begins to develop the Kabbalah in which the triad of the Ain Soph gives rise to the Tree of Life with its Sephiroth. This is the Time of the Old Testament, which lasts until the last prophet, John the Baptist. In the fourth Greek-Roman era the Second Logos, the Christ, is incarnated within the body of Jesus of Nazareth at baptism in the Jordan. The Logos became incarnated in a human being. One hundred years after the Mystery of Golgotha, the Apostle John wrote his Gospel, in which at last we arrive at the modern conception of Logos, in which the creative Word is identified with Christ. In Giovanni 1, 14: And the Word became flesh and came to live among us; and we saw his glory, glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. When we speak of Logos we thus refer to Christ who acts in Creation, but this conception presupposes, as we have seen, the existence of a Trinity. To confirm this very ancient conception of the Three Logos, we can see how the incipit of Rig Veda, the founding text of Hinduism, and the Gospel of John, the Gospel of esoteric Christianity, are absolutely in agreement in defining the relationship between God, the Word and the Holy Spirit: Originally he was Prajapati (God) and the Word was with him and the Word himself was truly the Supreme God. – Rig Veda In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God. – Gospel of John 1, 1
- Whitsun: the Festival of Freedom
Before the Son could be active, in the Hyperborean Era a part of the general spiritual principle had to be separated and pushed down to follow other paths. This event is expressed in the Serpent, the symbol of knowledge, the luciferic principle. It was this spark of the Spirit that made it possible for man to become a free being and made him capable of loving good by his own impulse. The Spirit who descended on men at Pentecost is akin to the Spirit who was then pushed down and who was also incarnated in Prometheus, the same one who rekindled the spark so that our Ego would decide to follow the Spirit, as it will then follow the Son and again after the Father. Man could indeed give himself to evil, but on the other hand only at that cost could he be brought back to the spiritual world from which he came. This is the connection of the Feast of Pentecost with the luciferic principle. Consequently, the Feast of Pentecost is also the Feast of Prometheus and Freedom. – Rudolf Steiner, GA93, The Feast of Pentecost and the Sacrifice of Lucifer, Berlin, June 5, 1905. 40 days after the Easter of Resurrection Christ Jesus ascends into the etheric atmosphere of the Earth together with the breath of the Earth: for 10 days the disciples gather together, feeling the lack of the one who had enlightened them from outside. 40 is the number that comes from the multiplication of the number 4, that is the quadruplicity of the elements, bodies and parts of personality, for the number 10, that is the 10 principles that regulate the cosmic existence as a whole, the 10 Sephiroth, the fruits of the Tree of Life, emanations of the divine that are the original evolutionary archetype of the 10 Commandments. Number 4: Fire – I am Air – astral body Water – etheric body Earth – physical body Number 10: Kether – The Crown Chokmah – Wisdom Binah – Intelligence Chesed – Grace Geburah – Strength Tiphareth – Beauty Netzach – Victory Hod – Splendor Yesod – Foundation Malkuth – The Kingdom When the number 40 is involved, it is a “quarantine” or quadruple purification of the elements, bodies and parts of personality. Noah, because of the Universal Flood remains 40 days and 40 nights in the Ark, the time necessary to purify the black magic practiced by the Turans in the Atlantis. After another 40 days, he comes back to the mainland. Moses frees the chosen people from slavery in Egypt and wanders for 40 years in the desert. Jesus Christ meditates for 40 days in the desert where he overcomes the 3 Temptations of Lucifer and Ahriman, unlike the people led by Moses who succumbed to Lucifer in the form of the Golden Calf, thus making it impossible for Moses to communicate the Tree of Life in direct form and having to give it a negative form, the 10 Commandments. 10 days later, on the 50th day, the 12 disciples orphaned by the Master gathered around Mary who was enlightened by Sophia, and it was through her intermediation, as the new 13th in the center, that the circle of 12 disciples received the Baptism of Fire, so that from now on they will be known as the 12 Apostles. They are the 12 representatives of the new humanity to come, the Men of Good Will, they are those who bring the Good News of the Ego to the world. The first example among them is John the Evangelist, the one who receives complete initiation into the element of the Fire of the Ego. Sophia, the Soul of the World, receives the Comforter promised by Christ, the Paraclete, Lucifer reborn in the new Holy Spirit who gives them the 7 Gifts: Wisdom, Intellect, Counsel, Fortitude, Science, Mercy, Devotion. Science as a gift of the Holy Spirit is the possibility of receiving the “consolation” of the understanding of the Christ principle in a scientific-spiritual form given by Rudolf Steiner. Rudolf Steiner gave man a method that allows us to resuscitate our perception of life, from the smallest everyday details to the greatest mysteries of the cosmos. This gift had already been anticipated in the consolamentum of the Cathars, who knew the Mystery of the Redemption of Lucifer in Lucibel, the Morning Star. However, this gift comes to full maturity only in the science of the spirit is Science of the Holy Spirit. Just as in Mary the Sophia, the Cosmic Wisdom, is manifested in Pentecost, so the Science of the Spirit is the possibility of the manifestation of Sophia in man: when men awaken their consciousness of the Ego, they make themselves available to become the physical body of Sophia: anthroposophical manifestations of Anthroposophy in the world. Man and wisdom thus form the Being Anthropos-Sophia. Christ not only wanted to act in the world, but he also wanted to be known, he also wanted to be understood. Therefore it is part of Christian reality that the inspiring spirit, the Holy Spirit, should be sent to mankind. Pentecost is spiritually part of Easter. The Holy Spirit is none other than the Luciferic spirit resurrected and now risen to purer and greater glory, the spirit of autonomous knowledge, of knowledge full of wisdom. Christ himself prophesied for men this spirit, prophesied that it would appear after him; and we must continue his action in this sense. And what is to continue his action? Let us try to understand it: it is precisely the universal current of the science of the spirit that continues its action! This current is the wisdom of the spirit; it is that wisdom which raises to full consciousness what would otherwise remain unconscious in Christianity. Christ is preceded by the torch of Lucifer resurrected, of Lucifer converted to good. He is the bearer of light; Christ is the light. As his name says, Lucifer is the bearer of light. Precisely this has to be the spiritual scientific movement. And those masters who have understood that the progress of humanity depends on understanding the great event of Golgotha, are united together within the great lodge that guides humanity, as “Masters of Wisdom and Harmony of Feelings. And just as the tongues of fire once descended upon the community, almost like a living universal symbol, so what Christ himself called the Holy Spirit dominates as light upon the lodge of the twelve masters. The thirteenth is the guide of the lodge of the twelve. It is they, then, who make the wisdom of the Holy Spirit flow on Earth for humanity. The contents of wisdom transmitted by the scientific-spiritual movement in order to understand the world and spiritual beings will gradually lead humanity to a free self-conscious understanding of Christ and the event of Golgotha. And it will result as a consequence that here, in the physical world, men will progress in the moral field, in the field of intellect, in the field of will. Through life on the physical plane the world will spiritualize itself more and more. They will bring into the supersensible life the fruits of this sensitive life; and again and again, with each new incarnation, from the supersensible life they will bring them back here, and thus more and more the Earth will become an expression of its spirit, an expression of the spirit of Christ. – Rudolf Steiner, GA107, Scientific-Spiritual Anthropology Where earlier the Snake tempting Eve and Adam in the Garden of Eden said, “God knows that on the day you will eat it, your eyes will open and you will be like gods, having the knowledge of good and evil” (Genesis 3:5) inducing you to eat the Fruit of the Tree of Good and Evil to imitate God “you will be like gods” – now it is time for Christ to say, “Jesus Christ answered them: ‘It is not perhaps written in your Law: I said, “Are you gods?” (John 10:34). The solar god Christ becomes man by allowing man to become God himself in Christ. The Christ who already gave karma as a means for subjective salvation, now intervenes in evolution for objective salvation, compensating for the karma of the world. It is at Pentecost that the temptation of Lucifer, the gift of a claimed freedom, becomes so mature that Men of Good Will will have in them the wisdom of the serpent and the purity of the dove: “Be cunning as serpents and pure as doves” (Matthew 10:16). Thus, when the Serpent of Paradise Lucifer’s Serpent is given back the wings that were torn from him in the Fall, he becomes the Dove, the renewed Holy Spirit. This is also the alchemical secret why the Mercurial Serpent, that is Lucifer, must be fixed in his volatility not on the Tree of Knowledge where he becomes the tempter, but on the Tree of Life, which is the True Cross where Christ accomplishes the Mystery of Golgotha, at the same time redeeming the Good Thief, Lucifer’s incorporation: “We rightly, because we receive the righteous for our actions, he instead has done nothing wrong. And he added: “Jesus, remember me when you enter your kingdom. He answered him: “Verily I say unto you, thou shalt be with me in Paradise today. (Luke 23:41) through Christ Lucifer will be admitted again into Paradise, the sphere of the Sun, and there he will be in the company of his brother.The Ancient Moon is the Cosmos of the Wisdom of the Holy Spirit, the Cosmos of Sophia. Just as there is an individual free will proper to the Soul of Man, so there is a cosmic free will proper to the Soul of the World. In fact, when in the Lemuric Era Eve and Adam were tempted by Lucifer, they lived the reflection of what had happened among the cards of the angelic hierarchies in the Ancient Moon, at the moment when Lucifer and his hosts began to work selfishly on the astral cosmic substance sacrificed by the Virtues. This divided the astral of the world, that is the Soul of the World, in two: this means that Sophia was tempted by Lucifer and a part of her remained in the spiritual worlds as Heavenly Sophia, while the other part fell becoming the Acamoth Sophia, who remains and enchanted in the created Nature lost contact with the ineffable Father, at the same time desiring Him nostalgically: this is what the Gnostic myth of the Fall of Sophia deals with. At the moment when at Pentecost the redeemed Lucifer appears in the Circle of 12 with Mary Sophia at its centre, Sophia, who is the Soul of the World, receives her free will, redeemed by her husband, the solar spirit of Christ. Thus comes a new union of the lunar and solar currents of cosmic evolution. Just as the redemption of Lucifer in us allows us to conquer subjective free will, so the redemption of Lucifer by Christ in Good Thief allows the karma of the Fall of Lucifer in the Ancient Moon to be transformed into cosmic free will. The Christ acting in the Eternal Present also redeems the Fall of the Ancient Moon and with it the current of objective karma, the cosmic lunar karma. The cosmos of ancient Wisdom, the Ancient Moon, can now become the cosmos of Love, the Future Jupiter. Whitsun is the realization on the stage of the history of the cosmic image that manifested itself in the initiatory secret in the underground temples of the Mithras Mysteries, where the god of light cut the throat of the cosmic bull, thus releasing the forces of regeneration of the cosmos: the end of the Age of Taurus was thus sanctioned, the third epoch of Egyptian-Chaldaic culture and the Age of Aries, of the Lamb of God, the fourth epoch of Greek-Roman culture, was inaugurated. The forces of the blood of the group soul and of the Brotherhood of the Blood represented by the Taurus, were lacking to be renewed in the fire of the Ego and the Brotherhood of the Spirit. It is through Pentecost that one passes from baptism with the Water of the Old Testament to baptism with the Fire of the New Testament. The Spirit of the Fire, bearer of Freedom, is now united to the soul of the Apostles. Lucifer, since the detachment of cosmic evolution in the Ancient Moon, regent becomes the holder of the ancient cosmic wisdom, the Ancient Moon being the Cosmos of Wisdom, having removed it from the Holy Spirit. As Lucifer diverted the people elected desert in his retrograde form as idol, the Golden Calf, now Lucifer appears as the mediator of Christ, that is, as the Mercury that carries the forces of the Sun within itself. It is therefore the first manifestation of the redeemed Lucifer, that sublime spirit of Venus that presents itself for the first time after the Fall as the inspirer of freedom combined with the love of his brother, the sublime spirit of the Sun, Christ. In this sense, the redeemed Lucifer, Lucibel the Comforter, allows each individual man to receive the consolation of Christ in a free and therefore entirely individual form. In Pentecost the Sun shines in the Sign of Taurus (in the Sidereal Zodiac it goes from 14th May to 15th June), the Cosmic Word that is expressed in the creative forces. The Taurus is also the sign of Lucifer: the Taurus, as an animal of the thorax, with its digestive process represents an astral world enclosed within itself, this superabundance of vital forces is also manifested in the sexuality of the Taurus and therefore in the sensual luciferic lust. What still appears in the Zodiac in the form of the animal of the bull will one day be transfigured into the image of the bird. Birds are in fact a symbol of astrality free from sensuality: what in the bull manifests itself as closed astrality in itself, is freed in the image of the bird hovering in the sky: the strong ribcage of the bull that harnesses the lust for life, metamorphosis in the hull of the birds that frees life in the cosmos. Here is the image of the dove: just as the Holy Spirit manifested Himself on Christ in the form of a dove, now the tongues of fire are manifested on the 12 apostles, so that in the future the Sign of the Bull will be transmuted into the Sign of the Dove. Just as one can link the Christmas feast to the etheric body and Easter to the astral body, so one can associate the “I” to Pentecost as the feast that represents the immortality of our “I”, which is like a mark of the imperishable world of our “I” and at the same time an indication that we humans do not only live in the overall natural world, we do not simply pass through death, but we are individual immortal beings who are reborn. How wonderfully all this is expressed by developing more and more ideas about Christmas, Easter and Pentecost! The Christmas holiday is in direct connection with earthly events, at the time when it is celebrated: it falls at the winter solstice, when the earth is shrouded in the deepest darkness. In a certain sense with Christmas one follows the existence of the earth with its laws: when the nights are longer and the days shorter, when the earth is frozen, one withdraws into oneself to connect with the spirituality that lives in it. It is, so to speak, a feast linked to the spirit of the earth. With Christmas we are constantly reminded that as earthly beings we are part of the earth, that the spirit had to descend from the heights of the cosmos to assume an earthly figure and be a child of the earth among the children of the earth. The feast of Easter is completely different! We know that it is linked to the relationship between the Sun and the Moon. It falls on the first Sunday after the full moon of spring, the one that follows March 21. According to the relationship between the Sun and the Moon, we set the date of Easter. Thus we see how wonderfully the feast of Christmas is connected to the terrestrial element and that of Easter to the cosmic element. At Christmas we remember what is most sacred on earth, at Easter what is most sacred in the sky. The thought of Christian Pentecost is connected to what, one would say, goes beyond the stars; it is connected to the cosmic fire of the universal spirit which individualizes itself and descends upon the apostles like fiery tongues, to the fire which is neither only heavenly nor only earthly, neither cosmic nor telluric, to the fire which permeates everything and at the same time individualizes itself and goes toward each individual man! The feast of Pentecost is connected with the entire cosmos. Just as Christmas is connected with the earth, Easter with the world of stars, so Pentecost is connected directly with people by the sparks of spiritual life which they receive from all worlds. We see in a certain way what has been given to mankind in general, for the man-God descends to earth preparing for each one the tongues of fire of Pentecost. Let us then see represented in the tongues of fire what exists in man, in the cosmos, and in the stars. He who is searching for the spirit finds in Pentecost a truly profound content and an exhortation to continue always in this search. It seems to me that today it is necessary to take these thoughts about the feasts more seriously than in other times. How we shall emerge from the painful and sad events of today will depend greatly on how these thoughts will be taken into account. One can already feel in certain circles that souls need to work to free themselves. I should say that one should share to a greater extent, which is inherent in the Science of the Spirit, this need today; one can speak of the need to animate spiritual life again everywhere in order to escape materialism. One can only escape it if there is the good will to enkindle the spiritual world within oneself, to celebrate Pentecost in a truly inner way and to take it seriously. – Rudolf Steiner, Pentecost as a testimony of the immortality of our ego, Berlin, June 6, 1916

Counseling Here you can request a biographical counseling session. Through the biographical work it is possible to find a common thread that leads from the past to the future through the present. “Where do I come from? Who am I? Where am I going?” These are the fundamental questions that man asks himself with respect to the Cosmos. They are all questions of separation. In fact, in the ordinary waking consciousness in which man lives, he poses himself in relation to Nature and the Cosmos, and yet we know that man is the only being who lives halfway, having both a body that belongs to Nature and a spirit that belongs to the Cosmos. Man with his ego feels alone in the inner space of his soul. In truth man is never alone! He must be able to find the key to see reality as it is and not as he believes it is at the mercy of doubt, separation and fear. It is love that moves us in the metamorphosis: love for ourselves and for our neighbor, for events and things, for man and Nature. "Man, know yourself and become what you are!" We are spirits who make a human experience, unique and unrepeatable, which we call Biography. Biography is a being, who lives in meaning. Only the spirit finds the meaning of things, of people, the meaning of his own life on Earth. If you want to know yourself, seek in the world; if you want to know the world, seek in yourself. Only when body, soul and spirit are in perfect harmony with Nature and the Cosmos, does man find his Ego. All this is possible through the division of biography into seven years and the recognition of the archetypes and the forces that act there. However, when we are not aware of the immense archetypal forces that act in life, we lose the meaning of events. The paradox of the human being is that without having the courage to descend into the darkest matter it is not possible to find the most sublime spirit. If man does not wield his courage, he clashes with the being of biography instead of collaborating with it. Biographical work strengthens individuality and his capacity for choice. By understanding a relationship between body, soul and spirit, they support each other, allowing the purpose of the incarnation to be achieved. “When a spirit dies, it becomes a human being; when a man dies, he becomes a spirit. A free death of the spirit, a free death of the human being.” Novalis The Science of the Spirit helps us to understand our potential, to make conscious choices, to guide us on the path of spiritual evolution. Counseling is born from the individual's need to make choices, supported by an understanding person who can give him/her support as well as show him/her other possible points of view. From the encounter between the understanding of the biography of Anthroposophy and the Counseling comes the Anthroposophical Counseling, which is part of Psychosophy. A wide-ranging approach capable of understanding the entire panorama of the individual's life in all its dimensions: physical, animic (psychic) and spiritual. Psychosophy, therefore, stands as a personal as well as transpersonal, material and spiritual understanding of man's life journey, recognizing both its individual and universal value. Through Anthroposophical Counseling you can discover your individual answer to the fundamental questions of man. Biographical Counseling helps us to recognize our potential, to make conscious choices for our spiritual evolution. Through biographical work you can find a common thread that leads from the past to the future through the present. During the meetings, we start with a current question and then create links with biographical events from the past in order to formulate new questions suitable for the future. The connection between past and future through the present is love, which overcomes time and connects all dimensions of being. Love has many forms most of them related to individual destiny (karma). But when love is conjugated to freedom, that is, to the consciousness of the archetype within action, it succeeds in overcoming the bond of destiny, fulfilling it fully. Thus we pass from love of the body to love of the soul and finally to love of the spirit. The more evolved the soul is, the more it will be able to experience a selfless love that comes close to the Spirit. Spiritual evolution is therefore a relationship of love with the archetypes that live through our biographical events. The Biographical Counseling interview takes place like this...
