This is Bradford Riley’s WORKS site. All new materials are being prepared here. Our current, intense focus of study (CLICK LINK) is on the DESTINY OF AMERICA. Novalis and the West are currently, immediately, in our cross-hairs. This THIRD ESSAY IN THE SERIES has been the pivotal point that connects Riley Brad’s Works to Rileybrad’s Blog. It has marked a pivotal change in the most intimate aspects of my destiny. Therefore I have pivoted both sites and tied them together on the strength and substance of “Grappling with the Monsters of the American Psyche part 3”.
THE ELM AND THE REPRESENTATIVE OF HUMANITY
When we try to imagine Rudolf Steiner carving THE REPRESENTATIVE OF HUMANITY, the Risen Etheric Christ moving through the Etheric Strata of the Earth and humanity, we are faced with the great riddle of the Elm Tree. (To find out more click on the IMAGE of the Risen Christ)
The Risen Etheric Christ in the center of the Great Hall encircled by the planetary wooden columns, revealing the past and future REVELATIONS OF THE EARTH, were one of the great mysteries of the TREES. The First Goetheanum and the wisdom of the Trees and their different planetary Etheric Vestments, which by touch, quality of soul and sound, the resonating timber and tone of the wood, revealed the inner etheric character, quality and fiber of the great pillars on which Earth Evolution rests.
An entire transformation of the Wood of the Cross, to the Risen Etheric Christ, brought humanity an entirely new active vision of the Alpha -Omega STRIDER. The Risen Christ, active through every fiber of creation, is the Free Being that is both the central core of the I AM of humanity and the full unfolding essence of Time laid into the very foundations of the Cosmos.
Asked to Rudolf Steiner:
′′ Is it really possible, simply by meditating Christ’s words, to reach the point of being able to say anything about his actual appearance?”
“After a silence emerges his cross-examination′′ And what do you think he looked like?”
“When I started saying some things, Rudolf Steiner took my description back and led it – I can only say – to clarity.This was the same picture he gave in his lectures: ‘A forehead different from a modern thinker, but on which respect for the deep mysteries of existence was written; eyes that did not look at men as if they were watching them, but penetrated their being even in the fire of the self-sacrifice; a mouth….When I first saw him, I felt like:This mouth never took food, but proclaimed divine truths of all eternity.’ “
In amazement, I asked:′′ Yes, but if you know how Christ really was, isn’t it fair to make this image of Him in some way accessible to mankind?’
′ Yes indeed,” was his answer. “And that’s why I asked a Dornach artist to make a model of Christ according to my instructions.”. (Juan Berthot April 24 2021, FB post)
Rudolf Steiner’s capturing the moving power of the Risen Etheric Christ helped focus and crystallize the ancient mystery of the Elm. Now, all may catch a glimpse of the potent active Divine Being that lay behind the mystery of the magnificent statue of the moving, living, Risen Etheric Christ. We also may now come to understand the ancient mystery and the great suffering of the Elm – CLICK ON PICTURE OF THE REPRESENTATIVE OF HUMANITY.
