9/11 – An anthroposophic Observation

Twelve years ago the Twin Towers catastrophe happened. It has left an indelible imprint on our culture and hearts and minds.

And yet there is still another reason why this day should live in our consciousness.

Rudolf Steiner marks in his Calendar the 11th of September as a commemoration day of the Patriarch ABRAHAM! This indication is not to be taken lightly.

Abraham was entrusted by the spiritual world with the mission of quite literally introducing the logical thinking and nature observation into his descendants – into us. Up to then the world had been understood more through powers of mysticism. He was to begin the process of deciphering the mysteries of the natural, observable world by using the powers of logical reasoning, by understanding that the laws of the cosmos, of the stars are found in the world of the senses. Antimonium Crudum 6X bottle with sealsThe world of the Gods was to be discovered hence forth as also manifested in the earth not just to be experienced in the “heavens”. Such, according to Rudolf Steiner is the deeper meaning of the Biblical pronouncement that “your descendants shall be ordered by the laws of the stars.” This leads then to the formation of the 12 Tribes, and so on. (According to R. Steiner it is a mistranslation to say simply that his descendants were to be as numerous as the  stars, or as numerous as the sand by the sea.) All this happened in the 3rd millennium B.C.

However, following spiritual law individualities as exalted as Abraham most accomplish their mission twice! The second time needs to be in a sense a mirror image of the first.

Beginning with the year 2000 for the rest of the 3rd millennium Abraham now leads mankind to recognize that the spiritual laws manifest in the stars must be consciously understood in the culture, the nature and the substances around us. Just as he led mankind previously into a deeper connection with the earth this individuality will lead mankind now to a reconnecting with the spiritual impulses of the cosmos.

Millions of people are beginning to consider 9/11 as a day of service and are urging that 9/11 be designated as a National Day of Service. Let’s go in the deepest direction. We can consider September the 11, every year, in the spirit of Abraham, to be the beginning of a year in which impulses are to be renewed, impulses that lead to understanding the connection of our health substances with the star impulses that give them strength.

We are particularly grateful that the Launch of our new OTC Line of remedies with their Validated Potencies, and their decided connection to cosmic impulses, happens to fall on this day.

Please join us in celebrating with us.
