The great Rudolf Steiner Quotes Site

In the present age we are not thrown together by chance with other people. That the path of life brings us into contact with certain people and not with others depends upon the working out of individual karma. For we have entered upon a period of human evolution which brings man’s preceding karmic developments to a culminating point. 

Think how much less karma had been accumulated in the earlier periods of earth evolution! With every incarnation fresh karma is made. At first, people had to meet under totally new conditions, with the possibility of forming fresh connections. But through repeated earth-lives we have gradually reached a point at which, as a general rule, we do not meet anyone with whom in former incarnations we have not shared this or that experience. 

And these experiences bring us into contact again with those who shared them. We meet other people as it…

Well, I’m reaching the end of the launch of my newest book, Could Anthony Newley Be My Muse (Or His Story Never Ends) Forging a Creative Bond with the Dead. I never did any marketing for my first book but I felt an obligation to Tony, if not myself, to do everything I am able to let people know about it.

This was right up against the holidays (though I didn’t plan it that way, it’s just how it worked out) and I thought that would be a great way to celebrate. Wrong! I spent the whole time struggling with the various outlets for making people aware of it. For me, that was not a good way for accessing feelings of joy.

In the interim, my colleague, Lynne Stull, who is far more steeped in anthroposophical studies than I pointed out a couple of mistakes concerning Rudolf Steiner. Though my work with Tony does not strictly follow the anthroposophical model for communicating with the dead, I feel it laid a strong foundation for me to stand upon. So, to set the record straight. I stated that Steiner wrote four books and 6000 lectures. Instead he wrote around 30, four of which are considered his foundational books.

She also was concerned about my stating that the form of helping the dead to heal karma I write of in the book gave the impression that my way was the first and only way. If others get that impression, I truly apologize for that was never my intention. Shamans have been doing that for centuries.

Lynne also shared the work of Kelly Connor, author of To have Caused a Death who also talks about healing across the threshold and gives workshops on the topic.

The comments in my book refer strictly to the method that came to me intuitively (or more likely inspired by my inner team of angelic guides) which I go into at length. I hope that will clear up any confusion.

Okay…I’m beat. I hope you will enter the free ebook giveway at Goodreads, good until January 26th, (limited to citizens of the US at this time though I hope Goodreads will change that in the future) or even purchase it at Amazon.

I’ll be going into different aspects of the book in future blog posts so I hope you will be able to ask me questions or make comments about what you’ve read.

For 2020, I wish for us all clarity of vision.
