a child is treated badly by their parents in this life...
what are the roles the karma from the past life and the responsibility and karma of the parents in this life ? and the responsibility of said child as an adult?
Our Spiritual Karmic paths...
... a child is born unto this life, and has an unhappy childhood due to behaviours of their parent/s. Believe me I know for some of us we do our best as parents, I am talking about neglect and abuse.

I have stumbled upon some evidence that corroborates Tom’s HACT hypothesis.
It comes from the book The Secret Stream – a collection of Rudolf Steiner lectures on Christian Rosenkreutz and Rosicrucianism.
In discussing the development of the individuality of Christian Rosenkreutz (CR), Steiner states 12 advanced individualities educated a 13th – a young boy who was destined to become ‘the Master’.

Steiner has often been thought to be the reincarnation of Aristotle. To my knowledge, Steiner never said this himself, although he did allude to it (somewhat circuitously) in some lecture series - especially 'Karmic Relationships'.
In these lectures he stated that Schroer was a re-incarnation of Plato. And since Schroer played a significant role in preparing Steiner, or 'awakening' him, just as Plato did for Aristotle, it seems to make a certain amount of sense that Steiner was likely a reincarnation of Aristotle.

The ice has piled under the gutters
ice under a gutter.
The wind is cold

I have prayed to die all morning,
some one who can't do it himself.
It seems even God doesn't want me

I am aware of my thought as I type here.
What is this tingle on my face and thigh

I think I am more than animal,
yet something of this body holds me firm.
The mineral of my heart expanded
so far it broke!
I found myself present
in all those I met...
And now I find me here on this machine

I am presently reading Chapter 3 POF and I have also been involved in the Seed Exercise from Knowledge of the Higher Worlds. There is a most intriguing statement that accompanies the Seed Exercise and it goes like this (while observing a real seed) "This invisible something will presently transform itself into the visible plant which I shall have before me in shape and colour. Let him hold firmly to the thought: The invisible will become visible. If I could not think, then that which will become visible only later could not already announce its presence to me. Particular emphasis must be laid on the following point: what is being thought here must also be intensely felt."

I was just reading today in a book about the Skull and Bones Society at Yale. For those who are unaware this society is (roughly and according to my understanding) a college fraternity for the future elite and powerful of America. Supposedly there have been 5 members who went on to become the president of the United States (including Bush Sr and GW Bush). Quite the coincidence.

my project for today: to see some ways in which Steiner's formulation of "experience" in his epistemology is a good example of what Gendlin is describing in the following quote and how Steiner's formulations might have changed if he had sought the reversal of which Gendlin speaks. The following quote speaks to my project: "We have inverted the ususal philosophic procedure. Instead of seeking certain conceptual presuppositions that determine all experience (and knowledge) we have sought to formulate the function of directly referred-to experiencing in the creation of concepts.

Hello, I am new to this group (or is it called a blog?). I am still figuring out how to use this. For years I have been a student of Steiner, yet have never fully entered the study of the Philosophy of Freedom. I look forward to hearing more of you all as I read your blogs and read Philosophy of Freedom (POF).

Hello folks. It sure is a long journey this anthroposophy. I spent 20 years with a guru and doing meditation for hours a day before I got to grips with POF. I even ran the two together for some years too! I developed a pretty spectacular clairvoyance and then thanks to RS had to set about dissolving my "achievments" in this area. I look back with some embarrasment at my posturings, but nothing is wasted. Anyway these days POF sets the standard for sure, but it is definitely a book that leads on...

So when I look at Steiner's body of work, I can see that as the years went by he was able to describe his experience of cognition in ways that specified and made more clear its holistic intricacy. Clearly, by the time he wrote "Truth and Knowledge" he had his primary intuition; he wrote very powerful about this intuition in "Truth and Knowledge", "A Theory of Knowledge Implicit in Goethe's Worldview" and "The Philosophy of Freedom". He wrote About it, and to some extent his language participated within his experience. But as the years went by you can read that Steiner was growing and struggling to create a new language for such an experience, and he said explicitly that he could not yet find such a language. So he was living with complicated felt-senses that he couldn't say the way they wanted to be said.

I'm not throwing this one back in the water! And I can't believe I missed it before. I've been collecting statements by Steiner that differentiate and specify aspect of POF that he doesn't state explicitly in the book itself. Many of these have to do with what I've been calling the cognitive edge experience or the felt-meaning. I've got well over 70 solid quotes from Steiner, but this one is solid and gives me a lot to think about. The context is that he is talking about the sense of concept:

"I found these concepts interesting- a) Debt of Nature - death. Apart from all those helping hands, its interesting to see how nature produces significant effects in our surroundings. I can't state it under the name of materialism, that after some decades this and that evolved and started to take toll. If anyone does, then i'll regard and include it as terrorism. Neither there is extracting resources which will anger some demi-gods. Its like how significantly each other persons thoughts changes just the way each other minds changes with time and situation. b) Concept of cosmos. what in the mind or in space beyond earth. Universals!!??. c) Psychopathism. creating sanity with violence and aggravating. Pestering me!. And what i can say, should i write star wars program against usa, russia and india. U know personnelly. But I am very low in resources and don't have any defensive weapon(no salvation army). I was thinking of changing the name of the movie -'planet of the apes' to 'planet of the pigs'. Thats sensible. d) Spiritual. If i am a spiritual free being in thinking as well as acting!. e) Reading. I can read very easily Rudolph Steiner lectures, 6 or 7 chapters in one day. Then other novels too for eg. sidney sheldon and poirot. But at this moment i am trying out 'arabian nights'. For reading one page, i have to spend half an hour. Very educational and cool. I have to say that what type of language ppl are using on the internet, english seems to be so simple in understanding. But some webforums are communicating in such a manner that it gives me a headache while reading. If even understood, then too whats the use of giving a reply i think!!!.

One evening an old Apache Warrior told his grandson about a battle that constantly goes on inside of people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside all of us.
One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith."

I had an amazing experience while reading the Philosophy of Freedom one night. At one point I kept rereading the same passage and just couldn't make sense of it. I forget which chapter it was in. I could probably look it up. Anyway, I got an inspiration to say a prayer to ask for help in getting through it. I then decided to just keep reading without going back or trying too hard to understand it, to get a flow going.

What is your world-outlook?
According to Rudolf Steiner's Human and Cosmic Thought
lectures there are twelve equally justified conceptions of the world. They are Materialism, Spiritism
, Realism, Idealism, Mathematism
, and Sensationalism
. In our search for truth individual personalities usually let one or the other of these world-outlooks predominate. This can be the source of an individuals exceptional ability or the cause of stubborn one-sidedness. What is your world-outlook? Why is it important to know? How can you discover it?

2) One has the object at his resources even his scripts...honk honk!.
3) It seems that everyone is under a politician, and always brags about it. But its not...democracy for the ppl, by the ppl and from the ppl.
4) A dictionary name politics has been confined to what is called a parliament. "We are passing a new bill today.!"
