Finding the Greater Self, Rudolf Steiner book of meditations for harmony and healing

Finding the Greater Self – Meditations for harmony and healing
Collected verses and meditations by Rudolf Steiner

In this collection of verses and meditations, Rudolf Steiner helps us to discover a renewed sense of our true and vital place in the cosmos.  The verses show us how we can learn to truly know ourselves by looking outwards to the Beings and processes at work in the vast cosmos; and conversely to know the true nature of the world at large by looking to within the core of our own humanity.  By interrelating the inner spiritual and the outer worldly, we learn to harmonize our relationships with ourselves and with others.  For modern people, increasingly divorced from a living relationship with nature, these verses help to unfold a world of interconnectedness and a sense of orientation in which the individual can begin to feel his intrinsic worth as something more than an isolated organism in an apparently accidental and chaotic world.

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) called his spiritual philosophy 'anthroposophy', which he defined as 'the consciousness of one's humanity', and the disciplined methods of studying this he termed ‘spiritual science’.  As a highly developed clairvoyant and spiritual initiate, he spoke from his direct cognition of the spiritual world. However, he did not see his work as religious or sectarian, but rather sought to found a universal 'science of the spirit'.

His many published works (written books and lectures) - which include his research into the spiritual nature of the human being, the evolution of the world and humanity, and methods of personal development - invite readers to develop their own spiritual faculties.  He also provided indications for the renewal of many human activities, including education - both general and special - agriculture, medicine, economics, architecture, science, philosophy, religion and the arts. He wrote some 30 books and delivered over 6000 lectures across Europe, and in 1924 founded the General Anthroposophical Society which today has branches throughout the world.
