The Imagination of Pentecost: Rudolf Steiner & Contemporary Spirituality
Richard Leviton
"Richard Leviton draws together in a comprehensive and insightful manner the diverse threads of the New Age movement and the teachings of Steiner....this book is a feast for the spiritual imagination." David Spangler, author of 'Emergence: The Rebirth of the Sacred'

1 "We must willingly cooperate with the intentions of evolution and spiritual destiny. Our moral failure to develop spiritual cognition would render this future barren."

2 "The divine-spiritual lives in each human individuality."

3 "The Human is the symphony of the creative Word and the perpetual revelation of the Logos."

4 "The Christ is forevermore united with Earth and human evolution."

5 "The human, in the act of knowing, of attaining knowledge, actually participates in the creation of the world, contributing something indispensable to the wholeness of being. Cognition is world generative and, through the pure moral impulses it produces, it is equally world restorative."

6 "Self-knowledge is knowledge of the world and world knowledge is knowledge of the self."

7 "The Creator…in pointing with the word, he shows himself, and is revealed. This is the primal revelation, creation itself." Georg Kuhlewind, 'Becoming Aware of the Logos'

8 "In the function of willing burns the fire of the future."

9 "The necessary enlivening of human thinking and the respiritualization of intelligence is a movement initiated from within the soul forces of each individual."

10 "'And the Tree of Life shall blossom with a fruit never before known in the creation, and that fruit shall be the New Spirit of Man,' runs the Zapotec prophecy."

11 "At the moment in which man realizes that he is embedded within the total organism of the earth…at that moment there exists an objective basis for morality." Rudolf Steiner

12 "Self-knowledge opens one up to the essential being of the world."

13 "The Logos speaks to the human in an individual form, through an inner Word which comprises the human's essential being."

14 "Divine Wisdom lies at the foundation of everything."

15 "Spiritual knowledge, if it's genuine, if it's transmitted correctly, will quicken a human's nature. Spiritual information should help humans find their bearings in life; it would kindle within a deeper love, more understanding. The results are actual life and not dead theory; they come alive in a person and lead one to the whole Anthropos, the complete human."

16 "The cosmos becomes aware of itself through an awakening humanity, recognizing its spiritual elements…Our cognition of the cosmic constituency of the human being is itself an act of cosmic self-awareness, in which the inherent self-reflexivity of the Logos becomes activated."

17 "The Logos connects everything in the interdependent web of being."

18 "The unfoldment of the human and the cosmos are reciprocally interdependent and simultaneous events."

19 "Sophia (Holy Wisdom) lies hidden in every atom and every stone, every tree and every flower. Her magic wand of revelation lies concealed within each of us." Rudolf Steiner

20 "Human, cosmos, and supersensible worlds are all interdependently linked and have unfolded together. In other words, the creation, elaboration, and progression of the solar system, humanity, and the hierarchies were synchronous events. In a sense, each is a different face in a different context of the same thing: the Logos."

21 "The human being is the Logos made flesh, the Word incarnate. A revelation looms implicit in this syllogism."

22 "We think we have an individual being in front of us, but this individual is a picture, on a certain spot, of the whole world."

23 "A great deal lies waiting in the womb of our spiritual evolution, but it can come to birth only through our willing, conscious cooperation."

24 "The world, the universe, is the spoken Word of the Logos."

25 "By no other way than through cognitive free will could humans come to inner freedom and true individuality."
