Shock therapy for Waldorf kids

“If you walk past a group of lethargic pupils, you can hit with a bunch of keys on the table, allowing you to produce a shock.

We must combat this irregular interconnectedness of the etheric body with the physical body by acting on the unconscious.

You will always have to find another way to shock them and evoke what they do not like to do. “ (Rudolf Steiner)

Steiner-Schulen? Auf keinen Fall!

“X.: Ich finde, wie die Dinge liegen, den Namen Waldorfschulverein nicht mehr richtig. Man sollte einen „Verein zur Gründung von Rudolf Steiner-Schulen" haben.

Dr. Steiner: Das darf auf keinen Fall sein.

X. (spricht weiter): Ich will damit kundtun, daß es sich um ganz bestimmte Schulen handelt. Den bisherigen Namen halte ich für schädlich.

Dr. Steiner: Ein großer Teil der Gegnerschaft beruht auf der einseitigen Betonung des Namens. Sie werden sehen, daß es noch in viel ausgesprochenerem Maße herauskommt. Ich weiß zu erzählen, wie Aufsätze, die ich daund dort anonym habe erscheinen lassen, angenommen wurden, und wie die Sache sofort umgekehrt worden ist, als der Name daraufkam. Man kann eine andere Firma haben. Der Sache wird nicht genützt durch persönliche Namengebung.“ (Rudolf Steiner)

Kidneys from Jupiter

“In reference of what is evolving in the mothers body, people are so stupid as to say: That is caused by fertilization.

When my lung is built, the head received the power to build the lungs from outer space. Specially when the kidneys are built, man received powers from outer space, from Jupiter for example.

Well, these are not fantastic ideas.” (Rudolf Steiner)

Tiny men, created by celestial bodies

“We are made of numerous tiny men. Our big human is just a centralization of plenty of small men.

The next thing i will show you is, that inside of the eye there also is a tiny man. The nose also is a tiny man. And these tiny men are held together by the nervous system and form the complete man.

And all those tiny humans are created while man is still in a seminal state in the mothers body, by the influence of the celestial bodies.” (Rudolf Steiner)
