Breathing the Spirit
meditations for times of day
seasons of the year
Breathing the Spirit: As a
spiritual teacher Rudolf Steiner wrote many beautifully formed and
inspired verses and meditations. Often they were given in relation
to specific situations or in response to individual requests;
sometimes they were created for general use in assisting the process
of meditation. Regardless of their origins, they are uniformly
powerful in their ability to connect the meditant with spiritual
archetypes and realities, and are valuable tools for developing
experience and knowledge of other dimensions.
In this collection of meditations for times of
day and seasons of the year, Rudolf Steiner delves into the rhythms
of nature and their relation to human beings. The verses in the
first part relate to the cycle of waking and sleeping, echoing the
greater rhythms of birth and death. They provide an accompaniment
for each day, gently reminding us where we have come from and where
we are going. The second section focuses on the human being's
passage through nature's changing seasons - a greater cycle of
sleeping and waking. Together they offer a spiritual light for our
journey through life.
Matthew Barton has delicately translated these
meditations into English, many for the first time, and arranged them
thematically in this outstanding new series.
