The essence of Steiner's teaching in this book and others is that a person can gain at least a degree of enlightenment or even initiation "alone", without the need for "gurus" and "ashrams" as in, for example the Hindu, but also the Sufi and other traditions. The integrity and independence of each individual human spirit is respected.
For all who want to see "beyond the veil" and are found ready, this book can be vital information.
Provides incredibly helpful meditations, explains the steps to higher knowledge in detail, gives encouragement and clear instructions on what to aim for in the future (quite far away in the future in my case). Wish everyone could read this.
In this book, Steiner outlines part of his method to develop the clairvoyant abilities needed to "see" into the spirit-world. Personally, I don't think he is detailed enough, indicating that real practice requires a teacher giving oral instructions. In contrast to modern how-to guides, that often promise quick results and even "ascension", Steiner's book emphasizes that seekers must be patient, disciplined and well-grounded in normal life. They must also be moral, committed to the higher cause of humanity and diligently study Steiner's own writings. In a sense, patience is the most important virtue, since it may take years to reach a point when initiation into the spiritual mysteries occurs. Through meditation and other practices, the seeker will develop his "lotus-flowers" or chakras, and be able to observe auras, etheric bodies and even thoughts. He will eventually encounter and learn a kind of occult alphabet, with the aid of which the spirit-world communicates esoteric truths. Hieroglyphs? One technique described by the author is the famous "seed meditation", mocked by C.S. Lewis during his "Great War" with Owen Barfield.Read more ›

disappointing as i know this is now the full version of the book!Published 14 months ago by Liat Bar-on
Fascinating read with very practical approach. The translation can sometimes impede understanding but reading it with an open mind is the first step towards higher realms anyway. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Johanna Kovrig
