Shifting Ground November 2020
In these challenging times of upheaval and disruption, we are faced with much individual and collective doubt, fear, and anxiety. Time is both speeding us and slowing down simultaneously and we are feeling the effects of how materialistic thinking has affected our lives, our thinking, our social structures, and our culture, often with serious consequences to individuals, communities, and the natural world. At the same time, we are seeing the highest in human beings stepping forward to take courageous initiative to help others.
Rudolf Steiner offered numerous suggestions for facing the challenges that we would meet in our individual and cultural development in these times. He spoke about how to overcome nervousness or anxiety; how to work against fear; how to stay centered; how to work with the light in dark times; how to develop imagination and thinking with the heart.
I have added articles addressing these topics to the resources in hopes they may be of value. You can find them here.
This global crisis provides us with a real opportunity to try to look beyond the immediate disruption, to review our lives, and to regain a sense of order and harmony in our lives - at home, with the family, and in our communities.
We encourage you to take any moment you can to center yourself, remind yourself of what you truly value, and what is important and join with others to engage in courageous initiatives of compassionate service.
I hope you are safe, healthy, and taking care.
