Mystery Truths and the Christmas Impulse

Rudolf Steiner
(Given 1918; GA 180)

The ancient myths were an expression of great truths about the nature of the universe and human development. Through mysterious, lively images, they describe a people's knowledge of their origins, their place in the cosmos, and their particular state of consciousness. Because our modern consciousness has become so abstract, these stories challenge us to exercise another kind of consciousness if we want to experience their truths and reunite with the realities behind them.

In these lectures, Steiner looks at the Egyptian, Greek, and Hebrew myths and illustrates how the myths expressed the consciousness of the people of that time. He sees in the Osiris-Isis story an expression of the loss of a direct experience of the supersensible world. He shows the connection between this loss and the challenge we face today to bring new life to our abstract ways of knowing.

These lectures are a tremendous inspiration to transform our head knowledge into heart knowledge and to lift the veil to spirit and know our place in the past, present, and future.

Ancient Myths: Their Meaning and Connection with Evolution

Book Cover Image Starting with the myths of Osiris and Isis and the Greek gods, Steiner shows how humanity has been deserted by the Gods and made independent. But it is only in our thinking that the Gods have deserted us. They are still present and active in other realms; and we can have access to them through Imagination, Inspiration, and Intuition. Here are seven lectures given in Dornach, 4th to 13th January, 1918. Translated from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer, by M. Cotterell.
