Outline

In the following blog the problem of student violence is being looked at, especially gun violence.

Possible reasons why it sometimes occurs are explored: Lack of love in childhood; technology playing a big role in the lives of today’s children and youths; evolutionary changes in the relationship of soul capacities and the difficulty of counteracting these; egoism taught in today’s team sports.

Remedies are discussed: Participation in artistic activities and a loving environment, as provided in Waldorf education; Christ as the Healer between the counterforces of Lucifer and Ahriman; Faith, Love and Hope; all this in the light of Rudolf Steiner’s indications given in Anthroposophy or Spiritual Science.

Inspiration is mentioned as the source of the idea for this blog as well as for the leading verse.

The three main articles of this blog are: A World Initiative; Encountering our Humanity; and Faith, Love and Hope. At the end of the blog they provide details of what has been outlined here.

Contributions between this introductory outline and the three main articles show the reaction of readers to the problems mentioned and the solutions suggested.

The Circle of Light

The Circle of Light

Faith, Love, and Hope
Will lead me in my willing
When I light a candle and unite
With the ever-present love of the Almighty
And His creative force.
It works in me when I, in love, embrace all people
Who come to me with
Faith, Love, and Hope.

This verse may lead us on our path
To create a circle of light around the world.
It will unite us and disperse loneliness.
It will open our minds to imagination,
Strengthen our inspiration,
And bless us with Intuition.

 

Comment by Giselher Weber

People of all religions pray to God. In this verse He is called the Almighty. The Christ has come into the world for the benefit of all human beings, not only for that of Christians. He has said: I and the Father are one (John 10:30). Although in the verse above, Christ is not named, He is described as the ever-present love of the Almighty and His creative force.

On that day you will know that l am in the Father and you in Me and I in you (John 14:20). Does it not follow from this word of the Christ that He will be with, even in, all of those who connect with Him in their heart?

And so, those who act in accordance with the verse above, can feel assured that the Christ, God will be with them and will give them strength in their endeavour.
