Ancient Myths And The New Isis Mystery

In these lectures, Steiner looks at the Egyptian, Greek, and Hebrew myths and illustrates how the myths expressed the consciousness of the people of that time. He sees in the Osiris-Isis story an expression of the loss of a direct experience of the supersensible world. He shows the connection between this loss and the challenge we face today to bring new life to our abstract ways of knowing.Steiner then offers a remarkable story, a new Isis legend. In the Egyptian myth the veiled Isis states, "I am the All, I am the Past, the Present, and the Future; no mortal has yet lifted my veil." In the New Isis legend as told by Rudolf Steiner, the Isis figure states, "I am the Human Being, I am the Past, the Present, and the Future. Every mortal should lift my veil." This extraordinary story is a challenge to modern humanity to awaken to a new consciousness of the spiritual forces at work in our lives and in society, and to bear this new spirit within us with ever greater understanding and a sense of responsibility. 26750 This key volume contains Rudolf Steiner's "Leading Thoughts" and "Letters" written for members of the Anthroposophical Society. In brief paragraphs, they succinctly present Rudolf Steiner's science of the spirit, Anthroposophy, as a modern path of knowledge. Invaluable as clear summaries of Rudolf Steiner's fundamental lines of thought, they are intended not as doctrine, but as a stimulus and focus for study and discussion. Their intention, as Steiner states, is to contribute to a "unity and organic wholeness of the work of the Society without there being any question of constraint.""Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge to guide the Spiritual in the human being to the Spiritual in the universe." -from the first "Leading Thought"
