how much does it matter if he or she is right?
Why was Christ so happy in the midst of all of this? Was he expecting a different reception in a world that believes that sin must be murdered?
............end of act I..............
Joey: Did you hear him tonight?
Sarah: He was mad. That was the worst it's been, Joey.
Joey: I know.
Sarah: He is really sad.
Joey: Do you think he's right about what he is saying?
Sarah: it's hard to believe we are all so wrong.
Joey: I know, wouldn't he be able to make us see this better?
Sarah: But his point is that it is not his fault. He knows we are all in trouble.
Joey: Do you think this will ruin our next 4 incarnations?
Sarah: Joey, I don't want to thi.....Joey, let's understand him better. I'm scared.

(143 years from the present day)
People are sad. Things have gotten smarter but the battles grow more and more fierce. It seems that those who saw danger and spiritual warfare in our future were correct. The anthroposophical society fractured into 15 distinct camps, each well aware of what the other's are doing wrong; each containing recognized leaders; each containing renegade "researchers" who know exactly why the recognized leaders are wrong; each knowing exactly how dangerous things are getting and each knowing that there is not enough courage to face the truth...
we have an increasing amount of isolated experts expertly explicating what we are doing wrong. Each cares more deeply than the next and each is more selflessly attempting to let the Christ move through his or her thinking to bring steps in the right direction.....Each knows that his or her thoughts are gifts for the world. Each knows that his or her isolation sort of proves the thinker is Christ!!!!!
Things are sad. Technology is strong. There was a time when Steiner had only been dead for a while and only one body took the name Anthroposophical Society: there were renogade experts then too, of course......Over 58 experts have identifiied over 214 incarnations of Ahriman. Most did so intelligently and knowing that it would help if others could see....No body is trying to do harm. Except the drangon.
end of act 3..................
In the beginning was the Word:
The world will end in an illusion, as it began. Yet will its ending be an illusion of mercy. The illusion of forgiveness, complete, excluding no one, limitless in gentleness, will cover it, hiding all evil, concealing all sin and ending guilt forever. So ends the world that guilt had made, for now it has no purpose and is gone. The father of illusions is the belief that they have a purpose; that they serve a need or gratify a want. Perceived as purposeless, they are no longer seen. Their uselessness is recognized, and they are gone. How but in this way are all illusions ended? They have been brought to truth, and truth saw them not. It merely overlooked the meaningless.
Sarah: Joey, what are you doing? Are we really this dumb???????????
Joey: Sarah, The world will end in joy, because it is a place of sorrow. When joy has come, the purpose of the world has gone. The world will end in peace, because it is a place of war. When peace has come, what is the purpose of the world? The world will end in laughter, because it is a place of tears. Where there is laughter, who can longer weep? And only complete forgiveness brings all this to bless the world. In blessing it departs, for it will not end as it began. To turn hell into Heaven is the function of God's teachers, for what they teach are lessons in which Heaven is reflected. And now sit down in true humility, and realize that all God would have you do you can do. Do not be arrogant and say you cannot learn His Own curriculum. His Word says otherwise. His Will be done. It cannot be otherwise. And be you thankful it is so.
The End ?
