Dr. Stephen E. Usher discusses the life and achievements of Rudolph Steiner

Dr. Stephen E. Usher is America’s leading expert on the life and achievements of Rudolf Steiner, the 20th century philosopher and Consciousness explorer, who founded the Waldorf Schools, among his many remarkable achievements.

We held this interview at the Unity Church of the Hills on November 2, 2017 here in Austin. This church is quickly becoming one of the Consciousness centers of Austin and What If It Really Works? has established a strategic relationship with UCOH that will result in our conducting nine more interviews over the next 11 months. This interview was the first in this series and we are very grateful to UCOH for including us on their programs.

“Two things fill the mind with ever-increasing wonder and awe, the more often and the more intensely the mind of thought is drawn to them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.”

                                                          — Immanuel Kant

One of the most important discoveries in our long history concerns the Pole Star.

Many thousands of years ago, after perhaps hundreds of years of observation and analysis, a small group of men in a field somewhere concluded that there was one star that never moved.  They knew this to be correct for they had kept an oral record of all the observations for all that time.  They knew two things to be true.

First, there was one star that was always in the same place, while the other stars rotated around this one star.  Second, this star could always be found by locating its neighboring stars, usually thought of as the Big Dipper.  This star was the northern most point of all the stars that rotated around it.

The predictability of this star’s location and the sameness of its light resulted in it being known as the light that never fails.

The Universe had provided us with a natural and universal compass in the heavens.  All sorts of adventurers and explorers have used it to find their way over land or sea and they still do.

That, by itself, qualifies this as being one of the great discoveries of all mankind.

However, just as above, so below.  We have also found that each of us carries our own moral pole star in our hearts.  It is there to keep us from becoming lost in life’s journey.

It is that still small voice that quietly seeks to guide us back on the path of peace and love, which is what we are in our most basic and also most sacred sense.

We experience this power sometimes more than others.  Right now, our world is going through a moment of Global Confusion and a kind of species-wide nervous breakdown.  We see it everywhere.  In America, we are being forced to confront the reality that a minority within our country has set in place a process that is destroying our country as we have known it.

Currently there seems to be no will to change this dangerous course, nor any vision to replace it.  So, we will have to ride it out.  It may take a long, long time to bring America to a level of greatness we all took for granted just twelve months ago.  Or we may never again experience our once highly regarded place in the world.  And it does not matter that our mortal enemy of the past 75 years, The Russian Communists, have helped corrupt us into this downward spiral.

The problems that our moral compass now addresses have always been with us and are more urgent now than ever.  We are being divided by forces that want us to be against our neighbors and our fellow citizens of this land and of this world.

In this storm of Global Confusion, the temptation is to go off-course and take sides against each other and then attack each other.  When we use force against each other, we deny the fact that there is only One Power in the Universe.  And it is this Power, which is God in us, that will ultimately resolve this situation.

Here is the message of our inner moral compass:  That compass, like the one in the sky, is there to show us the way to a safe journey.  It is there to help us rise above the rough seas and treacherous trails that one encounters when we forget who we are.  We are all One.  One species, One creation, One Universe, One Power and One God over all.

Pay attention: In the times ahead, each of us will need our moral compass to survive.  Take this seriously.

Our New Season!

We have just established a creative strategic alliance with the Unity Church of the Hills here in Austin!  This means a turning point in our work!  For the next twelve months we will present a monthly interview before a live audience at this forward looking church. These interviews will be followed by a question and answer period for the whole audience. Following the interview, we will publish it on this web site.

We have completed two experiments with this format and we have discovered that a live audience allows everyone involved to be on a higher energy level. We know you will enjoy this new experience and we have two test runs to show you. First, is our interview with Dr. Rich Massey:

Dr. Rich Massey discusses his ground breaking medical practice.

 

Our second test interview is with Dr. Katya Walter, Physicist and Jungian dream analysist:

Dr. Katya Walter discusses the connection between physics and metaphysics as revealed in Jungian Dream Analysis

We are now about to present Dr. Stephen E. Usher on Thursday, November 2, 2017 at Unity Church of the Hills, 9905 Anderson Mill Rd, Austin, Texas 78750.  Dr. Usher is an internationally known economist and he is also recognized as a leading scholar on the life and work of the German philosopher and creator Rudolf Steiner, founder of the Waldorf Schools.  This is a remarkable story about how one man’s thinking continues to change the world.  The Interview program starts at 6 PM and we are asking you to support our work with a free offering of $10.

Faith Article for September 27, 2017

Here’s what you get to take with you

 

By Chuck Robison

I stood at the foot of my father’s bed in Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on October 9, 1975.  My mother was standing beside my dad and we had arrived at the moment we all knew was coming and dreaded to experience.  The night before I had fed my dad his last meal.  He said to me then: “I never dreamed it would be this hard to die.”  The pain was unbearable.  The cancer had gone throughout his whole body and his bones were no longer able to support any part of his body.

As I watched him tell my mother he loved her for the last time and then close his eyes, I saw his soul leave his body.  As it did, there was a strong wind that moved counter clockwise around the room and it rattled the venetian blinds that covered the three windows facing Walnut Hill Lane and then it passed through my body and I knew at that moment that my life was about to change completely and in the most dramatic ways.  The wind went on around the room and left my mother with a look of total abandonment.  And then it was over and my Dad was gone forever.

And then the big question hit me:  What was he taking with him?  Certainly not his ruined body, none of his stuff, no money or tools to use in the afterlife, as has been the custom all over the world since time began.  No pictures or good luck charms.  Nothing one could see at all.

But it became clear to me that he was taking the same things with him that I would take with me, and you will take with you when it is time to leave:  His feelings and his memories.  That’s it.

We are told that upon arrival on the other side of the veil, we will be met by the souls who have travelled together with us for countless lifetimes and we will realize that each of these souls have been our dearest teachers and most important relationships.  Even those we think are our earthly enemies will be revealed to us as the closest of spiritual friends.  And we will discover that in making them enemies, we forgot not only who they were, but who we are as well.

We all fear the unknown of death.  We fear being judged.  But, the truth is that on the other side of the veil, we will see ourselves as God sees us:  powerful spiritual beings who are forgiven, loved and eternal.  And we will see that all those things that we did here that brought ourselves and others pain, were nothing more than the parts of the drama we came here to use as a means to make our souls grow.

But they have resulted in bad memories and ruined experiences.  And it is sad that many of us will not even have a glimpse of who we are until we walk through the veil.

But that can change….instantly.  Jesus used the words sin, sinner, sinning and sins no more than twenty-two times in all of his teachings.  But love and forgiveness were words he used constantly.  And he urged us to love each other, even the people we hate because they have hurt us.  He even asked us to pray for them.  Now why would he do that?  Perhaps he wanted us to get used to the truth that things are not what they seem, and today’s earthly enemy is heaven’s most powerful teacher.

What if we could take only happy memories and loving feelings with us when we go?  Pie in the sky?  I think not.  If you knew that each person in your life, regardless of what he did to you, he actually did for you, for you to grow. If we knew that, then anger, revenge, judgement and condemnation would be of no use.  We could forgive anything.

It’s possible.  And as each of us learns to forgive, even when it seems to make no sense at all, we will begin building up a storehouse of good memories and loving feelings, which we will understand only when we see each other on the other side.

Living in Eternity Hill Country News Faith Article 2017-04-13

 

 

By Chuck Robison

Happy Easter, the celebration of the end of Winter and the renewal of life! The history of this holiday goes all the way back to when we observed a lunar calendar, which is to say this is a nature-based holiday which the Jews used to remember Passover and the Christians used to mark Jesus’ death and resurrection.

With global events taking on a more ominous tone, people are turning to religion and the Bible for an explanation of what’s going on. The Bible mentions a world leader coming to the stage claiming that he alone has the power to solve all the world’s problems. People refer to this leader as the Anti-Christ.

The Bible even goes so far as to say that he implements a mark or some form of currency that everyone under his rule will have to adhere to. A mark on their hand or forehead that signifies their allegiance to the Beast. No one under his rule will be able to buy or sell without this mark. It will be forced on all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their forehead.

There is a new emerging technology of implantable RFID chips. These chips are already widely used to track large shipments. They are already in our passports and in our pets. The truly rich families on the planet have already ‘chipped’ their children in case they are ever kidnapped for ransom.

NBC ran a story in February outlining these new developments in this technology. They describe an implantable chip in one’s hand. This chip could interact with your body in the doctor’s office. Scan it, and it could tell your blood pressure, blood sugar, heart rate, or any other vital piece of information of medical history. How easy would it be to add functions to this chip that’s already in your hand?

How far off in the future do you think this will occur? Not very. IBM has been getting the public primed for years. IBM’s first foray into collecting and organizing vast amounts of information was during World War II. They leased and maintained punch card systems for the Nazis in their concentration camps.

In short, a profound change is coming and it will affect us all. So, pretend that the Anti-Christ is somewhere on the planet right now. How would you react? What would you fear? Who would you look to for leadership? The Bible narrative suggests that this Anti-Christ is the pre-cursor to the End Times. Suppose you knew that regardless of what you wanted or tried to change, this ending time would completely challenge everything in your life.

There is one solution I would like you to consider. Eternity is defined as the beginning-less beginning and the end-less end. We are all already in eternity, and that means the future is certain for us, even if we are beset on all sides by tragedy and horror. We will live forever.

Should this tragedy occur you and I could attempt to imitate Jesus during the original Easter week. He lived every day that week as if it were his last. Yet he had faith that his future was certain, even when it appeared he had been betrayed. He opened his heart to each person he dealt with in that week as if he was already in Heaven.

Time is fleeting and evil, although powerful, can never rule in Eternity. Be at peace and be the truth: WE ARE LOVE. When you feel like all is lost, remember Jesus’ open heart when he told the prisoner crucified with him: “I tell you, today you shall be with me in Paradise”.
