On Faithfulness

Pouring Water

Create for yourself a new, indomitable perception of faithfulness. What is usually called faithfulness passes so quickly. Let this be your faithfulness:

You will experience moments--fleeting moments--with the other person.  The human being will appear to you then as if filled, irraditated with the archetype of his spirit.
And then there may be--indeed, will be--other moments.  Long periods of time, when human beings are darkened.  But you will learn to say to yourself at such time: "The spirit makes me strong.  I shall remember the archetype.  I saw it once.  No illusion, no deception shall rob me of it.”
Always struggle for the image that you saw.  This struggle is faithfulness.  Striving thus for faithfulness, we shall be close to one another, as if endowed with the protective power of angels.


-Rudolf Steiner as taken from Lifeways: Working with Family Questions

It is! I am not very good at doing this, so these words have been on my mind a lot in the past few weeks.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.

~Adolph Murie, biologist, on Denali
