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 Christ is a generic inner fact of the world and Earth history – and a fact highly worth knowing."

2 "The Logos connects everything in the interdependent web of being."

3 "At the moment in which man realizes that he is embedded within the total organism of the earth…at that moment there exists an objective basis for morality." Rudolf Steiner

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

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

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

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

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

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

10 "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."

11 "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

12 "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'

13 "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."

14 "The natural world is permeated with creative Spirit expressing itself as ideas."

15 "'And the Tree of Life shall blossom with a fruit never before known in the creation, and that fruit shall be the New Spirit of Man,' runs the Zapotec prophecy."

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

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

18 "Self-knowledge opens one up to the essential being of the world."

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

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

21 "Human and Cosmos are not only reciprocally related but, even though the apparent forms differ, [are] mirror images of each other."

22 "Human, cosmos, and supersensible worlds are all interdependently linked and have unfolded together. In other words, the creation, elaboration, and progression of the solar system, humanity, and the hierarchies were synchronous events. In a sense, each is a different face in a different context of the same thing: the Logos."

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

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

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