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 "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."

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

3 "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

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

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

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

7 "'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."

8 "The existence of the planet Earth is far from a random accident in an indifferent cosmos."

9 "We will wake ourselves up inwardly through our own willed activity, and through this life redeem thinking."

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

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

12 "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

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

14 "Our real identity and cognitive range includes the entire cosmos and all its beings, and we must strive to be a fully conscious, independent investigator, co-creator, and cosmic colleague."

15 "Through enlivened thinking and the exercise of living imagination, humans will return light to the cosmos. Something will be added to the world through our cognitive activity."

16 "The natural world is permeated with creative Spirit expressing itself as ideas."

17 "Human and Cosmos are not only reciprocally related but, even though the apparent forms differ, [are] mirror images of each other."

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

19 "The Christ incarnation had a momentous purpose, a divine teleology that encompasses the entire life of the cosmos."

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 "Humanity is ripening towards a time of unilateral cooperation."

22 "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'

23 "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."

24 "The Christ is a generic inner fact of the world and Earth history – and a fact highly worth knowing."

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