Bradford writes; Understanding the [Bodies
I have on my mind an inner revelation, which,
while easy to say, has far deeper conscious reverberations for
me. Sometimes we are just ready to understand something that
has been percolating for some time. In doing some research on
Wartburg Castle, I encountered with new awareness how St. Elizabeth
and St. Francis received the Astral Body of the Christ Being.
This sunk in. It echoed inside of me as I began to understand
the implications. It paved the way for something startling, as
good things sometimes arise and amaze. A quiet startling eye
wide wonder, as opposed to eye wide shut singular experience
arose for me.
It is interesting to hold the understanding
that ages ago, and I'm sure you can all help me out here, the
Nazara.. as in Nazarene, as ZARA and NAZAR ties to the location
of the Zarathustra Jesus. Zarathustra had a history of gifting
his higher bodies to his various pupils. Christ later gave Judas,
a copy of His Etheric body as the foundation for St. Augustine.
We have recently looked at St. Augustine.
This insight remained dormant in me for some
time, but suddenly reawoke in connection to the unfolding of
my biography and studying the gift of the Astral Body of Christ
given to St. Elizabeth and St. Francis. It is an interesting
thought, that Zarathustra/Jesus already had an ability to copy
and give his highly worked through higher members as gifts to
worthy students. A copy of Zarathustra's well wrought etheric
and astral bodies were given out to various pupils who later
played important roles in Biblical history.
Each person relates to such an intimacy, to
such intercourse within their higher members in unique ways.
We touch here upon esoteric freedom and the student pupil relationship.
This student pupil relationship predominated in past cultural
How the ability to read a book, read the stars
and think, can also arise as the ability to read and understand
the vast inner connections someone makes, say Zarathustra, and
review the sources and insights that led to his vast spiritual
conclusions, might be gifted as a copy for soneone else to 'see
what I saw, understand how I arrived at what I know'. So having
as content in your consciousness the encyclopedia of Zarathustra
it would mockingly be like having the data in your own mainframe.
You could experience everything about the
normal history of you, but you would have the additional reference
library of reviewing another's vast experience as a second reference.
Childishly and fundamentally speaking we could misinterpret how
the soul might digest such a gift. Pathologies of this experience
come readily to my mind.
Many was the New York Transvestite or Elvis,
Marilyn or Judy Garland imitator (note I AM I in imi-tator) who
perhaps caught a copy of the duplicated astral shadow and double
that was invested with lower astral beings and made it their
own. As our current technology and culture have progressed we
are interested in cloning and making copies of individuals without
even grasping that perhaps an etheric copy or an astral copy
might exist. Or, that pathological magnetic links to distorted
astral and cultural icons of shed soul debris might be tried
on. Spiritual Drag Queens looking through a distorted psychic
We sometimes see the strangest examples in
life of what in the deepest sense is profound insight but bent
or fractured in the fun house hall of mirrors of the psyche.
Had these imitators once experienced such things in a more distorted
form in previous incarnations? Did they encounter highly potent
astral beings prior to incarnation which were incubating and
preparing copies of the fallen forces of Elvis, James Dean, Marylyn,
and those beings we call 'Stars' who really only represent the
demonic Idols on the coffee tables of men?
But we have invested extreme worshiping forces
into these our idols and given lower astral entities a life of
their own, to overshadow what we think we lack. Because of our
idiotic and false media inspired hero worship we invest power
to fallen astral entities.
Besides, since Zarthustra/Jesus transferred
and gifted his higher members to students way back in history,
current demons and ahrimanic beings are also schooling themselves
to take up this skill as well. But with the added value of being
cheap imitators Jerry Springer and whole hosts of weakened I
AM's are forced to hunt in the garbage bin for inspiration. It
is amazing what distortions we fall for in life. What is most
disturbing is that a well grounded history of the I AM as documented
by Steiner and brought through with education, antidotes such
To continue:; I'm standing imaginatively,
lets say, in the 1st Goetheanum and looking up at the cupola
painting on the ceiling.
There I see the incredible unfolding pictures
of the Christ Being and his vivid astral participation in human
history from Alpha to Omega.
There where the great Statue of the Representative
of Man would have been standing, on the center of the stage,
nearly 30 feet high; framed by a semi-circle of 12 wood carved
seats on the stage; with beautiful rhythmic pillars of Trees
with various planetary rhythms and tree essences that move the
whole spatial and cosmic picture through the great hall; and
directly above the Great Statue of the Representative of Humanity,
the Astral image of the Christ on Golgotha, with shimmering powers
flowing deep into the earth gripping gravity and Ahrimanic death
forces; and above the Luciferic sunlight of nature and pagan
forces, swept up into the radiant glory of the Incarnate death
The magnificent cupola of the First Goetheanum
depicts in living colors what the Statue reveals below in magnificent
wood. Steiner's contribution to the foundation of the I AM was
destined for the core of the Germanic thinking capacity as we
have recently indicated with Fichte, Wagner, Kaspar Hauser and
the Consciousness Soul.
"The tremendous building in Dornach,
Switzerland erected in a towering double cupola with its seven
pillars arranged symmetrically on each side, has caused many
who knew but little about Rudolf Steiner and his success as a
person, a speaker, and a writer to be surprised about the extent
to which his influence has grown. This remarkable temple, as
an educational institution of the humanities in Steiner's sense,
claims to put forward in courses of lectures and artistic contributions
his concept of the soul."
Now I am aware that Thomas Aquinas was one
of those who also received a copy of the Astral Body of Christ.
Received the Astral Body of Christ (It stuns
one to repeat it because I am not yet even close to grasping
it.), which has sunk into me a bit now after all these years,
but recently very clearly it sank in deeper. It grows inwardly
for me now a little more, the experience of understanding how
this unique Astral Body of the Christ would be a stunning gift?
We look back in time and see Thomas working
with Haroun al Rachid under the name of Schionaturlander, a diplomat
for the Grail, who actually was killed instead of Parsifal. Schionatulander
was diplomatic emissary to Haroun al Raschid for all that was
the wild Grail and Arthurian Celtic impulse. It was here that
the individuality of the future Dr. Steiner tried to reconcile
differences with Haroun al Rachid, the future Francis Bacon.
Oh and I cannot forget the whole gamut of
this history of with this individual going back through the Greek
period and his friendship with a certain character called Plato,
his experiences at Ephesus and back into Sumerian culture.
Further still we find that the many-breasted
Diana mystery, reveals her bountiful Lunar star breasts feeding
all manner of species of beings from the mystery center at Ephesus.
Alexander and Aristotle, before they incarnated with their world
mission drank at this mystery well. I need not go all the way
back to Uruk but he is there as well. So here is the mystery.
A most stirring, soul enriching experience and one that I have
not heard many souls embrace as they bash Spiritual Science.
Because what was Steiner's task, as Tarjei has so warmly outlined?
A transition from the Gabriel hereditary development to the I
AM core of the Michael Time Spirit or current ZEITGEIST.
The mystery here, is about the wide thinking
and Astral faculties of the "Countenance of the Sun"
Christ's astral body, that has been methodically served up for
a Conciousness Soul meal for those who wish to slowly attain
the Wedding Garments of the transformed Astral body and change
it to the future Manas condition. Steiner looking inward with
those rich deep, jet black eyes, into Light so Bright in the
heart of the soul and following this core reality back, back
and further back through creation and Time. This comes off the
tongue or written page easy, but try to let the magnificent emotional
content sink in. Steiner has, as proof in his work, the maturity
to reveal the core mysteries of the I AM.
The details continue to unfold. We see on
earth a massive building which represents the full Astral Body
of the Christ Being. We walk through the mighty lectures delivered,
each with their human harmony and human voice. We feel the pulse
behind the massive lectures covering a thinking process that
enters into the core of creation's deepest mysteries and carries
the mighty 7 and 9 fold pattern of the micrologos and unites
it with the Macrologos revealing the twelve chairs for the other
invited Initiates in the Great Hall. The opportunity to create
a building that reflects that Astral Body, and bring into practical
reality secrets of what that Astral Body could produce for mankind
if we understood it, became Steiner's great pleasure. The Astral
Body of Christ, Oh, Oh, Oh...
When we see the structure of the John Gospel
and Revelation we also see how the gigantic Astral body of the
Christ was unfolded with the layout and chapters of John's work.
The inner rhythms of the events... nay the cosmic Alpha Omega
biographical sketch, as seen in its cosmic extensions shares
and was built into John's works and continues profoundly all
the way into the Chymical Wedding and the grand ground plan of
But Steiner brings the Christ's Astral body
in translated chunks, pieces, full meals, raising thinking to
union, to marriage, to absorb into our Astral thinking field,
the potential to grasp the immense Astral Body of a God, an Elohim.
We get to think and learn to swim in the wonder of such a strange
profound gift with page after page of insight, connections, clarity,
substance, science, ethics, wonder and above all, Truth.
An Astral body of the nature we are talking
about resonates with, Know the Truth and the Truth shall set
you free. I AM the way, the Truth and the Life (as a cosmic Being
the Christ has a cosmic Logos Astral Body of immense dimensions
and we all have pieces of that within us. It is to become our
Wedding garment). But think how it was about to become a gift,
carried through all the developing cultures, Egypt, the Hebrews,
Greeks, and was attempting to land like a giant Eagle in the
thinking nest of the German thinking capacity to grasp the powerful
inner nature of the I AM. That is why we pointed to Fichte.
What does it matter that Christ was in a solidified
human form and contained within his walking revelation of human
body, The Cosmos?
That is the difference between understanding
the solidification of Spiritual faculties and members into an
operating system of Man, as opposed to the uncondensed wide spread
Etheric Earth, Astral Cosmos and Physical Solar System uncalibrated
and spread out in the vast vistas of soul/spirit/ and physical
He walked and existed in a Man and as a Man,
He can gift the various higher members- Manas, Buddhi and Atma
to qualified individuals, and it continues on into the future.
This is the Academia of the Brave New World. This is the difference
between thinking like shrunken starved rats or awakening and
glimpsing the AWE that is Mankind.
Now the Church and the human mind must be
confronted with not only the Body of Christ, but the Bodies of
Christ and this is a vast mystery that makes the Church obsolete
and unable to navigate any longer but rather burdened with its
own load of obsolete traditions sputters and fails before the
Christ Being is literal Science of the I Am, delivered, not through
the united German Soul, but Crushing the very foundations of
the weakened German Nation, as this mighty impulse was spoken
forth into the German Language. The Logos had landed, but the
Folk foundations could not sustain the immense strength, and
it fell. It fell hard and it fell brutally, shattered. But the
I AM WORD and TEXT lives on...and the mighty edifice grows in
each of us.
Now if we change the definition of AS or Anthrosociety,
and naturally there has been a great deal spoken about 'Mother
and Daughter' aspects of the society but so many head games cloud
the real issue. The real issue, and share with me this moment
on the threshold if you can; Because indeed we can write it out
fully at some point, but the stunning revelation is that here
we participate with the Feeding of the Five Thousand in the Fifth
epoch and we become the Astral Daughters and prime ourselves
to understand and change our Astral bodies and our thinking because
Thomas Aquinas went in a different direction than St. Francis.
In St. Francis we see the results of the full
in take of the Astral Body of Christ into the most receptive
devoted vehicle. We see It's ramifications all the way down through
his toes and his physical form. He doesn't, as yet, as far as
we know, explore and unfold the enormous wealth of the Astral
body and put it in terms we can understand with our minds, as
thought, as science; as education. St. Francis becomes that Astral
Body in his Higher members and it radiates right down into his
body as the stigmata. The Astral Body of Christ.
St. Francis takes the full blow of Initiation
and unites with the mighty Buddha away from the Earth. Steiner
takes this mighty impulse and categorizes it, breaks bread and
fishes in the 5th Post Atlantean epoch and hands out to the needy,
piece by piece, answer by answer to the starving masses. Daily
Steiner is serving at food line. He hoped with all his being
that the German Thinking capacity would have been the beacon
of mighty vision and peace, radiating out all over the World.
Not Steiner, the not I, but Christ in the whole development of
humanity, that is what Steiner wanted so badly to give.
Oh, if we understood this in our hearts...
Oh so, so stunningly strange to be able to lift up this veil
and say... I am learning and discovering the great Astral Body
of Christ that can be learned on earth now and viewed with even
more intensity, but only if you encountered it here, experienced
it here, will it fully awaken on the other side of the threshold.
Nay, better, each win in our thinking becomes something of a
profound seed in our higher self. We build our higher selves,
our Spirit Selves with this school of Spiritual Science.
But now, here, today, the Christ is not so
far away. We turn and examine the way the profound thinking of
the Sun Logos would unfold causes and effects and human karma,
medicine, education, agriculture we see wisdom and benefits galore
because Steiner delivered to humanity what St.Francis took away
from humnaity. There is an Initiate equation here somewhere you
can bet on it.
It was not merely a religious experience for
someone with a personality like Aristotle, oh no! Aristotle's
sober thinking walked into the emotional fortress of this new
gift, the Astral Body of Christ, and considered deeply how to
categorize and departmentalize the wonderful revelations this
Astral Body could give to a thinking soul; what it could unveil
and reveal within human history and the human community.
Steiner worked out a destiny plan, a way to
offer this Astral Body of Christ to the human community and place
it firmly in culture as a fact. How intimate could, should such
emotions and thinking be when unfolding the content of the Astral
Body of Christ? Steiner continued to remain wonderfully human
in everything he did and said.. After all who made the human
and the best of the wonders of the human being we love anyways?
What is this thing that allows us to Love that which is true
and great in the deeds and wonders of humanity? If the eye were
not sun like and if our astral bodies were not Christ like...
Ask John in the beginning of his Gospel. "All things were
made by Him and without Him was..."
He offered a building with the full reflection
of the great work of outlining the Astral Body of the Christ
Being and placing a living image of it on the Earth. Who would
let such a thing stand in it's beautiful organic wood and let
it radiate and live as the full revelation of the Astral Body
of Christ brought down into the physical world?
Darkness would not allow it to live here amongst
men, it had to retreat to the fortress of the I AM, but for one
bright shining moment. Men would not let it live, it had to be
destroyed. Such a remarkable fact on earth would rock the universe
off its hinges. Souls would hardly need any convincing of the
errors we currently live out in the misguided scientific fields
and research that have brought us to such confusion today. Only
in the journey to the inner I AM and the mystery of Spiritual
Science will you find the tattered and concise fragments that
unveil layer upon layer the mystery of the human soul.
Something stunning that we are afraid to take
hold of and see that would destroy the precious thing we now
cannot recognize, was the reason why Steiner actually wept at
the Burning of the First Goetheanum. Who, who would not have
wept? Steiner wept only because when it was burned to the ground
he knew that we of the future would not be able to see that it
was the wonderful revelation on Earth of the Cosmic Astral /Manas
Body of Christ in warm integrated and well organized human wisdom.
The Living Building was further backed up
by the enormous research and treasures unfolded while Steiner
walked through this apartment in his house, the Astral Body of
Christ, (Christ was in the House!). There radiating outward,
daily, weekly, monthly, yearly the mining and translating of
the vast cosmic treasure trove of the Astral Body of a God into
current, warmed immortal reason, worked Dr. Steiner daily.
The Church cannot research specific incidents.
It has nothing to say about the ability Zarathustra achieved
before he became Jesus. The Church has nothing to say about Jesus-Zarathustra-Buddha.
It is merely a tattered piece of self-sustaining political correctness,
with lots of influence into the slumbering souls of men.
In other words it is an obsolete system that
teaches more lies than truth and it promotes and attracts predatorial
molesters under the guise of religion. Because it is no longer
religion, because religion is the Science of Man and loving the
full revelation, of the Astral Body of Christ and the secrets
of the Spirit of Man and how Christ enhanced Man from ancient
Saturn to our lives today. Certainly the ability of the Church
to know any of this is beyond their means at present.
Many unknowns are becoming highly illuminated
through the various higher members that a God bore on Earth.
There is the Physical and Phantom form to be attained; There
is the Astral Body of Christ; The Etheric Body; The Atma, Buddhi
and Manas bodies.. and we shall unfold all of them as we arise
to become gods and now we look at Spiritual Science and we say..
For Christ's sake! Thank you for giving a little piece of the
bread of the Logos, for taking the time and appealing to my shabby
little intellect that I too can touch the hem of the garment
of the Risen Christ and be thankful.
