Introductory “quote” to Anthroposophy

5 08 2010

Look to the real, practical, material life,
but look to it so that it does not dull you to the spirit
which is at work in it.

Look to the spirit —
but not for the sake of transcendtal enjoyment
or out of supersensible egotism,
but look to it because you want to apply it
selflessly in practical life, in the material world.

Make use of the ancient saying:

‘Spirit is never without matter,
Matter never void of spirit,”

in such a way that you say:
We want to do all material things in the light of the spirit
and we want to look for the light of the spirit in such a way
that warmth springs up for our practical activities.

-Rudolf Steiner, founder of anthroposophy, 1919

There is an interesting interview with an anthroposophist who is also a Catholic priest to be found at http://dstp.cba.pl/?p=2652 Worth checking out
