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

2 "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."

3 "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'

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

5 "There are hidden powers in man, which are capable of making a God of him on Earth." H. P. Blavatsky, 'Collected Works'

6 "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."

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

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

9 "An imagination is the thought-matrix, the living picture from which physical reality manifests."

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

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

12 "The Christ is the historical 'living force', always present, who exemplifies freedom of the heart and freely willed fraternity."

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

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

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

16 "'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."

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

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

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

20 "The human is a living miniaturization of the cosmos."

21 "Wisdom must become our ideal because everything we do, our thoughts, even our moods, influences the cosmos."

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

23 "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."

24 "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."

25 "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."
