Effective Practices : Governance
Recollections from Caroline von Heydebrand as quoted in Towards the Deepening of Waldorf Education, published by the Pedagogical Section of the School of Spiritual Science, Goetheanum, Dornach.
We wish to form our thoughts in such a way that we may be conscious that:
Behind each of us stands his Angel, gently laying his hands on the heads of each. This Angel gives you the strength which you need.
Above your heads there sweep the circling Archangels. They carry from one to the other what each has to give the other. They unite your souls. Thereby you are given the courage of which you stand in need.
Out of this courage the Archangels form a chalice.
The light of wisdom is given to us by the exalted beings of the Archai, who are not limited to the circling movements, but who, coming forth from primal beginnings, manifest themselves and disappear into primal distances. They reveal themselves only in the form of a drop of light in this place. Into the chalice of courage there falls a drop of light, enlightening our times, bestowed by the ruling Spirit of our Age.
