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 Logos connects everything in the interdependent web of being."

2 "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."

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

4 "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."

5 "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."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

14 "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."

15 "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."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

23 "Christ Jesus is the representative, the embodiment of the power which imparts to mankind the full consciousness of the 'I am'." Rudolf Steiner, 'The Gospel of Matthew'

24 "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'

25 "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
