Meditation & Spiritual Perception, edited and introduced by Gertrude Reif Hughes. Meditative Life Today. At this time in Western history, anyone can meditate. Steiner frequently reminded the audiences at his lectures and tirelessly described for his readers how human souls were once so embedded in the creativity of the spiritual worlds that it was their physical surroundings, not their spiritual origins, which were unfamiliar to them. Thanks to the evolution of consciousness in our souls, our souls feel fully at home in the physical world but in the process we have lost our capacity to recognize the scope and nature of spirit existence. Perhaps not all human beings feel the loss yet. But humanity does have the longing and potential to turn the soul toward spirit powers that sleep in us, and toward spirit beings who await our efforts with an expectant interest. (From the introduction by Gertrude Reif Hughes.) Meditation & Spiritual Perception includes fourteen articles of a very wide range. The introduction addresses: “Meditative Life Today,” “Meditation in the Soul and in the ‘I’,” “Meditation as Praxis and Devotion,” “Focusing: the Main Praxis,” “The Devotional Aspect of Praxis,” and “The Threefold Nature of Both Meditation and the ‘I’.”
