Last week we discovered that in the past humanity had a ‘revelation’ of the Spiritual world through the Great Sun Being. We heard that this revelation could only occur by way of the faculties of perception available to human beings at different stages of development and occurred since Egyptian Chaldean times as ‘Gnosis’ that is a knowledge experienced within, the ‘bearing’ of the Sun Being in a passive way. After the mystery of Golgotha this revelation occurred in the physical body of a human being the Nathan Jesus. After this time the ‘gnosis’ or revelation died away and it was taken up into Spiritual worlds and given to human beings in a renewed way, as the imagination of the Holy Grail, or the path by which man can ‘receive’ the Christ within and be a conscious participator in this process. We explored how the carrying of this esoteric knowledge was the responsibility of four mystery streams North, South, East, and West. That each carried the secret of this perfection of one part of man’s being. We stated that the Eastern Stream related more to the perfection of the Astral body, the Western Stream to the Etheric body, the Southern Stream to the Physical Body and the Northern Stream to the Ego. We mentioned that these streams had human guides, The Eastern and Western streams were united in Parzifal or Manu, the Southern Stream was led by Christian Rosencreutz and the Northern Stream - the responsibility of Rudolf Steiner who brought these streams together on the 25 December 1923 in the Foundation Stone Cultus which was in effect a kind of high mass or communion between human beings and higher beings.
We also discussed the fact that Christ is the ultimate teacher of these secrets, that through the Holy Spirit he conveys his teachings to the 12 Bodhisattvas who exist in the White Lodge, these in turn reflect these teachings to Human initiates who through the great Grail Brotherhood disseminates them to their followers in the physical world. We also learned that there are five higher beings that have a particular relationship to the Grail. The Archai Michael we said sacrificed being an Archai in order to guide human beings in a more direct way in preparation for Anthroposophy. The Archai Raphael sacrificed becoming a spirit of form to become the guardian of the exoteric form of this knowledge – Exoteric Christianity. The Archangel or Folk Soul of the Celtic people sacrificed becoming an Archai in order to be the guardian of Esoteric Christianity. The Angel of Buddha- Vidar sacrificed becoming an Archangel until the right time in order that he might take the position vacated by Michael as the highest Archangel of the Sun who would guard the Nathan soul in which resides the ethers in their pre fall state. We also mentioned the sacrifices to Christ past and future, made by the Nathan soul.
We discussed that the Holy Grail then is an imagination for the perfection that can enable the Consciousness of Christ or Christ Impulse to enter into the human being, and we saw how each mystery stream had its task preparing mankind for this attainment.
The Holy Grail is multifaceted and complex and seeks to unite human beings in Love. The Anti Grail is quite a more simple affair. It seeks to bind the human race together by using division through hate. The main emphasis here lies in the difference between unification through love and binding through division and hate. This is a very important point. We must not always look at the obvious things around us, the obvious evil and terror, sometimes we have to go deeper, to those things that are insidious and make a pretence at goodness, for it is there that we shall find impulses that lurk beneath the surface of events to prevent the consciousness of Christ being the possession of all human beings.
Tonight we will discuss the opponents of the Grail the four Anti Grail Streams and their Guardians in the world today, who seek to undermine the principles of the attainment of the Grail or perfection that will enable a communion between human beings and the Christ being.
What are the Tasks of the Anti Grail stream in the world today?
The Task of the Anti Grail stream today is to keep humanity asleep. Asleep to the divine in the human being and to the divine in Nature.
What do I mean by this? The task of the Anti Grail stream is:
1. To prevent consciousness of the need for perfecting various bodily sheaths or redeeming the results of the fall, in preparation for a communion with Christ - Microcosm.
2. To prevent consciousness of the need to perfect the various bodily sheaths of the human being in order to thereby redeem nature and spiritual beings in preparation for its communion with Christ - Macrocosm.
The Anti Grail Brotherhood and the Four Anti Grail Streams
The Anti Grail Stream has four human initiates that guide it who belong to an Anti Grail Brotherhood. These initiates are well hidden. We only see their ‘pawns’ in the world arena today.
Western Brotherhoods of the Left - work against the experience of Christ in the Etheric Body as a Healing force -shadow of the Loving Offertory - Hateful withdrawal from spirit.
From the West come the Brotherhoods of the Left - the Freemasons - at least some factions of them, C.F.R (Central Foreign Relations)., Round Table, the Cecil Rhodes Scholarships, the Order of Skull and Bones, and their associated political and economic instruments - who seek to unite as many human beings as possible in an ‘unconscious’ way with the material life so that in the life between death and rebirth the Etheric bodies of those souls does not dissipate but remains surrounding the earth and can be used as instruments for these powerful groups. These Etheric bodies become the vehicle by which the Antichrist can replace the Being of the Etheric Christ. These western brotherhoods work particularly in the economic life because this is an excellent way of binding humanity to matter. Those initiated into this stream, also seek to ‘consciously’ remain in their Etheric bodies after death as a kind of Etheric immortality. They learn how to excarnate and incarnate at will through the use of an ‘illegal gate’ a northern constellation/ star sign that appears in the night sky at midsummer – or midday in the cosmic year. This is the illegal constellation of Ophiucus, the serpent handler. We can see the connection between this constellation and the earth’s kundalini in the diagram below. Ophiucus lies on the Zodiac, and is the thirteenth constellation, however, it is not recognised by Astrologers. It represents a serpent, coiled round a man's, Aesculapius', body. Aesculapius is believed to have preceded Hippocrates as an early healer who was supposed to be able to raise the dead. It deals with birth and death and the prolonging of life. Those initiated into these mysteries would live a shadowy half-life like the ring wraiths of the Lord of the Rings. They participate in ceremonial magic, rituals that originate in past epochs and are not suitable for human beings today. We have seen a triumvirate of Evil raise its ugly head since 2001. There are leaders in the western world that are pawns of those who govern the Western Anti Grail stream. This stream seeks to and is uniting with, the Eastern stream as did its good counterpart in the ninth century. We only need to look at how Sept 9/11 strengthened the position of many political leaders. It also increased the wealth of many Western and Eastern corporations. Think about why there has been a question of National Security before two election campaigns in Australia both brought about by an Eastern threat. Think about how all three countries are led by parties that are being moved more and more to the right. This divides human beings, by promoting differences – Them and Us - through fear and a deep religious as well as nationalistic fervour. This works against the impulse of the Grail stream that seeks to unite human beings in their spiritual commonality by promoting the knowledge that in every human being there exists the same element of the divine and eternal.
In the lectures on the Reappearance of Christ in the Etheric, Rudolf Steiner places particular emphasis on the fact that more and more human beings will come to realise that there are forces that run from north to south. These forces can and will be misused by the Anti Grail stream and are related to impulses that originate in the sphere of particular constellations that are related also to Etheric forces that lie deep in the Earth. In particular he mentions the constellation of Gemini and Sagittarius being related to dualism – electricity, magnetism and the ‘third’ force. The impulses coming from Gemini are related to Midday. Those of Sagittarius to midnight. The other two are Pisces and Virgo, these are related to morning and evening and can be put to the service of humanity as a healing science.
The Gemini forces, the forces of midday can be exploited by Western brotherhoods to acquire knowledge of :
1. The mysteries of Gold and Birth. This relates to a knowledge of how incarnations can take place by way of a manipulation of DNA, that is, through the 13th illegal sign of Ophiucus which is The Serpent Handler or sign that knows how to utilise the Kundalini of the earth or its fallen ethers. Through this sign Life will be created in an illegal way, that is, independent of Karma, by bypassing the forces of the twelve Zodiacs – cloning comes to mind.
2. The mysteries of Health. These are the forces of the Son in the fallen form. This knowledge can be used in vitamins and minerals, medicines that are tinged appropriately and can enable human beings to relinquish karmic illness that might lead to ‘goodness’ in another life for ‘good health’ in a bottle which is not balanced by conscious inner work and so therefore does nothing to further the evolution of the individual and his Karma.
3. The Mystery of Eternal life by giving human beings who undergo special Luciferic initiations of this kind an Ahrimanic immortality. The human being’s Etheric body becomes hardened and does not dissipate into the world Ether effectively tethering the human being to the earth. 
These relate as shown by the diagram, to the Etheric Kundalini of the earth. The electro - magnetic forces that work tortuously from the south up through Australia to the magnetic north pole in North America. The activity of the double or the human being’s darker side thrives on the fallen Etheric forces.
We can see how these western brotherhoods are connected with what is carried over from Australia to America from south to the north magnetic pole and how this is reflected in the political arena of today where Australia and the UK join forces with America to create an Empire.
Eastern Lodges – Brotherhoods of the Right – Religious Fundamentalism, Islamic groups/ Bolshevism.
Work against the Experience of Christ in the Astral body
The shadow of Creed – Doubt in the Spirit
The Eastern Lodges exploit the forces that come from the region of Sagittarius. The forces of Sagittarius or archer are the forces of duality the ordinary Ego the Ego bound to the material body or matter and the higher Ego. The human being is depicted mounted on an Astral beast. These are the midnight processes. They encourage practises that are unsuitable for modern human beings, practises that use the ‘Astral Beast’ the retarded Sentient Soul which will unleash tumultuous human emotions, terrible astral forces of destruction. Terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg.  Conditions are also prepared whereby that aspect of the thinking that is related to the Astral body in the Intellectual soul affects the Etheric body to enable it to become like an empty shell after death so that it can be utilised by the forces of the double. This is not an immortality experienced by initiated human beings as in the case of those experienced by members of the Western Brotherhoods but it is an immortality experienced by the Double who should leave the human body at death. Scores of human doubles remain attached to the earth in these Etheric shells in particular near those areas where these Luciferic initiations take place. Together they will form a Physical Etheric and Astral body, for the Subsuprahuman double into which the ego of Ahriman can incarnate in order to avert attention from the Etheric Christ.
It is also the task of these brotherhoods of the Eastern stream to prevent Eastern Europe from developing towards the Sixth Cultural Epoch. The Mafia in Russia and the Terrorists as well as the Government work towards this end. We see this erupt in the problem of Chechnya which has not only led to terrible terrorist acts but also the slow decay of civil rights. Recently the Russian president has abolished elections for the lower house stating terrorism as his reason. This is only the beginning.
The Southern Anti Grail Stream – Jesuits, Catholics, Opus Dei
Work against the Experience of Christ in the Will / Spiritualised Physical body
Shadow of Transubstantiation/ Spiritual transformation – Fear of the Spirit
This is the Stream of the Jesuits, Opus Dei and Catholicism. Initiates into this stream learn through certain exercises to extinguish the individual ego in the will. Jesuits seek the eradication of all knowledge concerning Christ replacing it with knowledge of the human Jesus only. Today this stream works most strongly through Opus Dei which extends its influence into the world by recruiting lay men. It penetrates all levels of government and society through recruitment. It cultivates power, an attitude of authority, is patronised by the Vatican and is permeated by the spirit of Jesuitism.
The Northern Anti grail stream – Future
Work against the experience of Christ in the Spiritualised Ego
Shadow of Communion –Separation from the Spirit
This stream seeks to unite the ego with the physical body so that it loses its connection with the spirit and the consciousness soul which is driven down and become fused with physicality cannot accept the Spirit Self or the Christ into the chalice so that there is no communion with the Christ being and human beings become automata – The retarded Spirits of Form or Asuras are responsible for inspiring this stream.
My very talented son recently wrote a thesis on America’s involvement in Cambodia and Vietnam and some of his insights are truly remarkable.
He came to the conclusion that Governments can use ideals that are outwardly opposite to their own ideology in order to create a power base. In this model a Capitalist can use Terrorism in order to secure Autocratic leadership and visa versa. In this case both Economic Capitalism (West) and Religious Fundamentalism ( East) start out at opposite ends of the spectrum however as they move more and more to the extreme- one or the other they lead to one and the same thing, Autocracy and Dictatorship. Each time a revolution, war or threat is needed in order to create an atmosphere of Oppression, be it Economic, Social or religious. If we use this model in the present context when we look at the Anti Grail streams we can see how east and west arrive at autocracy and dictatorship by working together – in a similar way to how the legitimate East and West Grail streams came together in the ninth century. We are seeing the fruits now of the unification of the Anti Grail stream in the event of September 11th.
• Left wing Terrorism moves to the right and leads to Economic Repression.
• Right wing Economic Repression moves to the left and leads to Terrorism.
• Left Wing Religious Repression moves to the left and inspires Nationalistic tendencies
• Right Wing Nationalism moves further to the right and leads to Religious Repression
In each case the pendulum swings and each time there is a loss of Egohood.
Culture is the only thing that can balance out the two extremes and realise the aims of Rudolf Steiner by providing a third pillar in a Christened Three Fold Social Order. But culture is being attacked from both sides in an attempt to prevent a ‘meeting in the middle’.
The Black Lodge and its Five Supersensible Inspirers
The Anti Grail streams and the Anti Grail Brotherhood of Black Magicians is inspired by higher beings that belong to a Black Lodge whose twelve archangelic members oppose the work of the twelve Bodhisattvas and seek directly to prevent the Holy Spirit from being reflected towards humanity for an understanding of the Christ being. Beyond these there are five higher beings that inspire this Black Lodge and directly oppose the five Supersensible Guardians of the Grail.
Sorath Sun Demon retarded Spirit of Motion – Opposes Michael and the Cosmic Intelligence
Sorath works to undermine the cosmic intelligence of Christ or the knowledge concerning the consciousness of the rebirth of Christ within man. Michael is a Time spirit and therefore an Archai, however because of his renunciation in his ascent as we discussed last week he is an Archai who has the capacities of a spirit of Form. He works as we have stated in the sphere of the Sun as a Star or Higher Devachan. He has, therefore since his Ascent been directly opposed by Sorath who as Sun Demon is a backward Spirit of Motion or a Spirit of Motion working as a Spirit of From. Through his agents, that is beings that are lower in rank such as Lucifer, Ahriman and most importantly through Asuras he works to bring about a binding of the human Ego to the Physical body, to materiality so that it loses its connection with the spiritual and cannot therefore, spiritualise the Ego for the communion with the Ego of Christ. He will work to create a race of human beings that have no Egos a ‘Sorathic Race’ or race of ‘Christ refusers’ that will oppose the ‘Michaelic Race’ of Christ ‘receivers’ - Anthroposophists. He inspires the northern Anti Grail Stream of the future.
Asuras Retarded Spirit of Form - Opposes the work of the Guide of Exoteric Christianity
The Asuras fell behind on old Saturn and have the capacity of Spirits of Form through they work as Archais. They work therefore from the Sphere of the Sun as planet, in the realm of the Will through all that brings about a materialisation of the Consciousness Soul resulting in its inability to rise upwards to the Spirit Self. They are the inspirational force behind exercises that abolishes or paralyses the will (Demonised initiation of Will) by the Jesuits, Opus Dei, and Catholicism. Through the Asuras does the Being of Christ become only a physical Jesus. Asuras inspires the Southern Anti Grail Stream and is directly opposed to the Templar stream.
Ahriman Retarded spirit of Personality - Archai – directly opposes the Guide of Esoteric Christianity
Ahriman is an Archangelic being that has the powers of an Archai. He fell behind during the Sun incarnation of the earth. He works Macrocosmically from the sphere of Planets against the spiritualisation of the Etheric body by two means:
1. Subconsciously: Through Materialistic thinking which descends to the Etheric body by way of the Intellectual Soul. This materialistic thinking is brought about through, Alcohol, television, movies, rap music, sexual perversion, commercialism, wealth at the expense of others (stock exchange), loss of civil rights and materialistic science and its laws. This materialisation of the Etheric body occurs subconsciously and results in hatred for all spiritual things. After death the Etheric bodies of these hardened human beings stay attached to the earth.
2. Consciously: Through esoteric exercises taught in Occult Brotherhoods (Black Magic). This results in a conscious Etheric immortality.
Such Etheric bodies do not allow for the consciousness of Christ to light up in them.
They cause an occult clouding after death that is, they will pollute the spiritual horizon over which the Etheric Christ can be seen. In this way will Christ be replaced by the Subsuprahuman Ahrimanic double in the Etheric sphere.
In the microcosmic sense Ahriman will incarnate into an ego-less human being. It will be his task to prepare humanity for the pseudo incarnation of Sorath through the vehicle of the Anti Christ. He inspires the Western Anti Grail Stream and directly opposes Manicheanism.
Lucifer retarded Archangel – directly Opposes Vidar/Ramael.
Lucifer is an Angel that stayed behind during the Moon Evolution of the earth and so now has the capacities of an Archangel. He opposes the new clairvoyance that will enable human beings to see and commune with the Etheric Christ, by way of terror, Fear, religious fundamentalism, an Us and Them Xenophobia which leads to Genocide/Nationalistic Fundamentalism. All of it averts human attention from conscious work on the Astral body. Human beings who barely survive, who are afraid, have no schooling, who have no food are not in a position to work on spirituality. Lucifer also works through the dissemination of old forms of esotericism the Fenris Wolf (Yoga, Buddhism, séances, spiriticism etc) not appropriate to modern human beings. These old degenerated forms of clairvoyance will lead to a blinding to the Christ consciousness in the Astral body. He inspires the Eastern Grail Stream and opposes the work of the Rosicrucians.
Subsuprahuman Etheric Double - Directly opposes the Nathan Soul and the Fifth Sacrifice.
The Subhuman Etheric Double is that being that is created from the aggregate of degenerated Thoughts, Feelings and Will of all human beings.
After the fall a part of the unfallen Etheric forces Sound and Life Ethers were protected and guarded in Spiritual Worlds by the Nathan Soul. This means that a part of man remained inaccessible to him, this is more precisely the physical and Etheric bodies and that part of the Astral body that is concerned with the will. Into those parts that have been unconscious or inaccessible to human beings, is vulnerable invasion by supersensible beings. Lucifer resides in the Astral body in the Sentient Soul or life of feelings and Ahriman in the Intellectual soul as well as that part of the Etheric body that he can access through thought, memory. You may know from my lecture earlier this year that the higher ethers have their counterparts in the Sub Earthly sphere. We know that these fallen Ethers are connected also with man’s own Etheric body and soul inasmuch as the soul affects the Etheric body in a positive or negative way. Rudolf Steiner tells us that
“The Evolution of our planet is intimately connected with the forces of humanity and civilizations”
The majority of the Etheric body and physical body which man cannot access with clear consciousness is the home of a double of man that is made up of these fallen Etheric forces of the earth, that is energy before matter (Power behind the Atom ?Anti Matter), Magnetism and Electricity. These have entered into man and that aspect of his Astral body that the double accesses through the will; doubt, hate and fear. The aggregate of the individual doubles of human beings forms one subsuprahuman double which will provide a vehicle for the Macrocosmic incarnation of Ahriman as a subsuprahuman double. It will work in the Etheric sphere in direct opposition to the work of the Nathan Soul and will attempt to sabotage the manifestation of the Christ in Etheric form.
The misuse in the past of Etheric activity is said to have caused the destruction of Lemuria and Atlantis and access to these fallen forces in Sicily is said to be behind the power of Klingsor; and the old Castle Marveil or that place where all the beings reside that oppose the Grail Stream. What in our time then is the earthly equivalent of the Castle Marveil?
The present day Chastel Marveil
There are places in Europe that are particularly exposed to the above mentioned fallen ethers in particular from those of the old Atlantean continent. These forces have found their way to the surface through the movement of the earth’s crust. Pagan Temples were erected over them in ancient times eg where now stands Chartres Cathedral, Lourdes, Dornarch where stands the Goetheanum, Montsegur where the last of the Cathars were destroyed, Sicily the home of Klingsor the terrible magician, Cellydon wood where resided Merlin, and Lockenhaus in Austria where the last of the Templars perished and where Rudolf Steiner places his Templars in his four mystery plays. The Templars and others who guarded the Grail, Christianised and ennobled these places by erecting churches over them. This ennoblement is symbolised by the fact that the Ethers – associated with the Female principle, that is the fallen ethers associated with Rhea, Demeter, Persephone the old forces of Saturn Sun and Moon that is Energy before the Atom, Magnetism and Electricity are Christianised in their Christian counterparts the Black Madonna, Mary Magdalene, Virgin Mary that is: Life Ether, Chemical Ether and Light Ether. We must not forget that the Nathan soul – that has a feminine quality is the embodiment of the Ethers not affected by the fall.
Certain areas are known for certain Etheric forces. Some have especially strong energies due to the geography of the landscape i.e.; proximity to the fault lines or to granites that have been thrust from out of the depths of the earth.
Rudolf Steiner tells us that America is the location of Old Atlantis. In American soil is preserved the retarded forces that brought the destruction of Atlantis and is especially connected to the forces of the double.
Australia once Lemuria, has within its soil a preserved memory of the retarded forces that destroyed the Lemurian civilization and are especially connected to the forces of the double.
Rudolf Steiner tells us that these forces are especially related to the human will and so are pacified by a self-less will striving to do good “…when human will is devoid of egoism it is able to appease this fire” 
Wherever human beings however live a selfish materialistic life this works right down into the Earthly Ethers and into the Ether that surrounds the earth, volcanoes, violent storms and other terrible natural catastrophes are the result.
The Anti Grail streams utilise the knowledge concerning these fallen Ethers and their influence on man and visa versa in order to execute their plan to prevent the down pouring of the consciousness of Christ into the individual in order that he or she can at the same time redeem the fallen forces of the earth.
These Anti Grail impulses were disseminated in the past from centres such as Gondi Shapur in Persia home of Harum Al Rashid, and Terra Labur home of Klingsor.
In modern times there are many centres from which comes the work of the Brotherhoods of the left or the Western brotherhoods and the Brotherhoods of the South Catholicism, Jesuitism and Opus Dei one such place is Rennes le Chateau.
Rennes le Chateau is a small village of less than a hundred people. It came to the attention of the world through a book written by Gerard de Sede which explored the story of the Abbe Berenger Sauniere,  the town priest who despite earning very little was able to spend thousands renovating the town church, building a guest house he called Villa Bethany and a tour he named after Mary Magdalene which he called Tour Magdala. Through Mary Magdalene we see the connection with the fallen Chemical ether.
He is said to have tampered with the church in the renovations, placing an altar upside down, reversing known religious symbols such as the Alpha and Omega that usually belong to Christ and John the Baptist. Templar symbols as well as hermetic symbols abound as well as a water stoup held up by Rex Mundus the king of the earth – Ahriman. There is in fact a striking resemblance between this Ahriman and Rudolf Steiner’s Ahriman. The Villa Bethany – Bethany being where Lazarus was raised is where his housekeeper found the Abbe dying of a stroke, despite the fact that this was only his guest’s quarters and he lived in the priori. Also two days before his death he had been in good health, despite this, his servant ordered a coffin to be delivered two days later, the very day that he became ill. He is said to have been involved with a neo Templar group that called itself the Priori de Sion. The Priori de Sion is the recently formed outer face of the western brotherhoods that, in conjunction with the Jesuit order of Opus Dei, managed to infiltrate anti Christian impulses into the world. It also points to the conscious Etheric immortality which we discussed earlier, in which the Etheric body does not dissipate but hardens and materialises, effectively imprisoning the human being in the earth’s surrounds. This points to the great Anti Grail mystery of incarnating and excarnating at will through the thirteenth Zodiac Ophiucus or Serpent handler
The story of this Abbe was picked up by three journalists who produced a small television series that sparked off a book which explores the connection that existed between the Abbe Berenger Sauniere and the Priori de Sion and its connections with the Templars, Cathars, the Merovingian dynasty and the supposed blood line of the Grail. Concluding that the Grail was nothing more than a pedigree that could be traced back to Christ’s survival of the Crucifixion and his subsequent marriage to Mary Magdalene, a blood-line which continued through the Merovingian kings of France and later the royal houses of Europe.
This may seem laughable, and far-fetched but it has left an indelible mark on the world today, inspired by the Jesuits who seek to turn Christ into Jesus and the Western Brotherhoods who seek to undermine the manifestation of the Etheric Christ.
This small village went on to spawn numerous books that explored this same theme.
There are people who have read these books and have been known to become Atheists because of them. Certainly it completely pushes aside the Mystery of Golgotha and replaces the Divinity of Christ with a human Jesus that did not die on the Cross but lived on to sire children. It is interesting to note that of late the hoax perpetrated on the public by the false documents which started everything the documents of the Priori de Sion has now been discovered and the connection between this ‘made up’ order and the Jesuits as well as Opus dei have been revealed.
We see how the Anti Grail Streams of the west and south work from this centre inspiring books that promote Doubt and Hatred of the Mystery of Golgotha while at the same time the world is brought to a condition where it is racked by war, and terror that promotes Fear by the initiates of the Anti Grail Stream of the East and West.
Doubt, Hatred, and Fear are the work of the four Anti Grail Streams and its five Supersensible Guardians, Sorath, Asuras, Ahriman, Lucifer and the Subsuprahuman double in direct opposition to Faith, Love and Hope the work of the new Grail Mystery Stream and its five supersensible guardians, Michael, Raphael, Uriel, Vidar/Ramael, and the Nathan Soul.
However things don’t always go as planned for the Anti Grail Stream not so long ago it sought to bring a materialised form of ‘spirit’ into the world through ‘spiritism’ but this backfired and only fuelled the desire that humanity had for what lay beyond the senses. Negatives can be turned into positives. The dispelling of dogma that has been the result of these books, the revelation of the possibility that what we hear and see may not be the truth can be utilised for the good. This can lead to an opening through which real truths can be expounded. War and Terror, and personal grief can also lead to questioning of what is right and what is wrong and the creation of a groundswell of compassion for others and courage to seek for truth, beauty and goodness, a return to faith, love and hope.
Anthroposophists are in a position to become vanguards, to participate in the workings of the new Mysteries of the Grail inaugurated by Rudolf Steiner at the Christmas Foundation Meeting. In this way we are not passive, but we become participants in the New Science of the Grail which has united all former Grail Streams into one – Anthroposophy - and seeks to unite the world. These renewed mystery streams guard the secret of man’s spiritual development in readiness for a communion with the Christ Being which is possible in our time. But we must not become unguarded, we must also at the same time become sentinels whose task it is to be awake and aware of what the Anti Grail Stream seeks to achieve in the world around us. We must do this not only for ourselves, for the sake of our own development but for the sake of those less conscious and therefore unable to see the truth. We have to part the fog that lies over the happenings in the world around us to.
…see things as they are. One can only see things as they are, however, when one is in the position of applying to reality the concepts, the ideas, that emerge from an Anthroposophically oriented spiritual science.
Then we shall have to ask the question, we shall not be like the young man of Sais, we must be like Parzifal:
Who most benefits from this? You will often be surprised at the answers.
