The Threshold of the Spiritual World

Front Cover
Book Tree, 2003 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 108 pages
Is there another world beyond this physical reality? The author, Rudolf Steiner, says there is. This book describes what it is like to stand at the threshold of the spiritual world and begin experiencing it in deeper ways. We seem to know it is there and some of us have experienced glimpses of it. Steiner reveals how these glimpses come about and what we can do to hold onto them longer. He shows us that there really is a threshold into the spiritual world and how it can be crossed if we know what to do.

About the author (2003)

Austrian-born Rudolf Steiner was a noted Goethe (see Vol. 2) scholar and private student of the occult who became involved with Theosophy in Germany in 1902, when he met Annie Besant (1847--1933), a devoted follower of Madame Helena P. Blavatsky (1831--1891). In 1912 he broke with the Theosophists because of what he regarded as their oriental bias and established a system of his own, which he called Anthroposophy (anthro meaning "man"; sophia sophia meaning "wisdom"), a "spiritual science" he hoped would restore humanism to a materialistic world. In 1923 he set up headquarters for the Society of Anthroposophy in New York City. Steiner believed that human beings had evolved to the point where material existence had obscured spiritual capacities and that Christ had come to reverse that trend and to inaugurate an age of spiritual reintegration. He advocated that education, art, agriculture, and science be based on spiritual principles and infused with the psychic powers he believed were latent in everyone. The world center of the Anhthroposophical Society today is in Dornach, Switzerland, in a building designed by Steiner. The nonproselytizing society is noted for its schools.
