American Age Sea-Goat, Capricorn 5733 – 7893 AD
7th Cultural Era = Budhi or Life Spirit
“We know that some day the Moon will re-unite with the Earth. This is known by abstract astronomy and other sciences, but they push the time far into the future — it is however really not very far off.
“In the course of evolution humanity is becoming younger and younger and retains the power of evolving in body and soul to a definite age. In ancient India man retained plasticity up to the age of 56. At the time of Golgotha to the age of 33; now, to the age of 27. In the 6th post-Atlantean epoch it will be to the age of 21-14 in the 7th epoch, 14-7.
“Woman will cease to be fertile, another mode of entering earthly life will take place when the Moon re-unites with the Earth, in 8,000 A.D. The re-uniting of the Moon with the Earth will be of great significance; we shall be connected with the Earth differently.” Rudolf Steiner (Click Link)
AMERICAN STUDIES and THE AMERICAN SPIRIT
“The Christ-Impulse, which will have saturated the whole etheric body: the human etheric body will have become one with the Christ-Impulse.”Rudolf Steiner (CLICK LINK)
Part 3 (Click Link) advances to Spirit-Self and the Manas hidden in the American Spirit.
Part 4 is being offered in a slightly different format. Part 4 is being offered in this way for those who have already built a firm foundation in the previous essays on America, as offered, and have a strong interest in the Eighth Sphere and the final stages of The Culmination of the Age of America. What were the goals, intents, and Trials of Body, Soul and Spirit that were laid into the Foundations of America?
We may look forward, into the 7th Age, with enhanced vision, and discover the True Hopes for The American Spirit. Part 4 completes the outline of “Grappling with Monsters of the American Psyche” by getting us into the goals, the hopes and the challenges that lay ahead if we are to achieve and arrive at the lofty intentions of the Founding Fathers for The Future American Age and the Culmination of the 7th Age. To arrive at the American Age is to come to a stage of Higher Consciousness where Humanity carries the fruit, deeds, Karma and seeds of the meaning and intent of the entire evolution of our Earth.
