I sense a kindred nature to my own:

Thus speaks perceptive feeling

As in the sun-illumined world

It merges with the floods of light;

To thinking’s clarity

My feeling would give warmth

And firmly bind as one

The human being and the world.

Taken from The Calendar of The Soul by Rudolf Steiner, translated by Ruth and Hans Pusch

To me, this is a message of grounding ourselves firmly within our human form and within the arms of the Great Mother.  Allow our thinking to glow in wisdom, to pull in elements of our emotions and to begin to feel the connection between ourselves and this place.

We must always be working from a double view — one view of the spiritual self and one view from our incarnated self.   One of Doreen Virtue’s oracle cards reads something like:  Ground Yourself.  Although it’s pleasant to drift heavenward, your work and presence is needed here on earth.

Now that the earth is warming up (for those of us in the northern hemisphere, anyway), we can begin to walk barefoot, feeling the subtle textures of the earth under our feet.  We can touch and smell the blossoms and emerging leaves.

I even picked strawberries from the field the other day.  The color, the fragrance and the texture of those gorgeous berries kept me moving through the rows, picking more and more.  I ended up taking home eight pounds!  We were eating strawberries for days!  We all loved them.  To be so closely connected with the source of our food is a great way to feel grounded.

I am no expert in Anthroposophy, but I like the challenge of Steiner’s meditations.  I like the stirring in my soul as I try to focus my mind enough to bring the words into my heart.

I’ll post Steiner’s weekly verses.  Let me know what you think.  They follow the rhythm of the seasons and festivals.
