Love and Its Meaning in the World - Rudolf SteinerLove & Its Meaning in the World
Selected lectures and writings by Rudolf Steiner

Love and Its Meaning in the World brings together all of Rudolf Steiner’s main lectures and writings relating to love - from earthly love to the nature and function of spiritual love. Among the topics included are: The Mystery of Love; The Division into Sexes; The Mission of Reverence; The Buddha’s Teaching of Compassion and Love; Faith, Love, Hope; as well as the title lecture.

Although Rudolf Steiner does not often speak or write of love explicitly, love is the very heart and ground of all his teaching, the foundation of all he did, and all he hoped that we would do. Steiner teaches that, without love, nothing is possible; but that with love, we can do everything. Love is always love of the not-yet. To love is to create; it is to enter selflessly into the current of time that flows toward us from the future.

Love mediated by way of the senses is the wellspring of creative power, of what is coming into being. Without sense-born love, nothing material would exist in the world, without spiritual love, nothing spiritual can arise in evolution. When we practice love, cultivate love, creative forces pour into the world.― Rudolf Steiner
