FROM THE INTRODUCTION
The content of this booklet consists of excerpts from the inspiring words of Rudolf Steiner. They all concern the urgent need for the transformation of our intellectual thinking, which is able to comprehend dead physical processes, into a kind of living thinking which will allow humans to comprehend and nurture the reality hidden in living processes of nature. Some excerpts refer to the need for a new kind of education that will understand and support this transformation. Others will engage the reader in the social changes that this transformation will be able to effect. All the excerpts are jewels waiting to spark a healthy meditative life in any reader, in particular those interested in discovering the roots of modern social issues. As the excerpts belong to the world of re-al experiences, they can’t be understood by any intellectual-logical cause and effect type of thinking. They must be studied and meditated till they become alive and grow of themselves in us.
Apart from individual meditative work, this booklet will gain value from being worked through in groups — student, teacher or parent groups, the College of Teachers, community groups in general.
