The story of my life

by Rudolf Steiner

Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) was born in the small village of Kraljevec, Austro-Hungarian Empire (now in Croatia), where he grew up. As a young man, he lived in Weimar and Berlin, where he became a well-published scientific, literary, and philosophical scholar, known especially for his work with Goethe's scientific writings. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he began to develop his early philosophical principles into an approach to systematic research into psychological and spiritual phenomena. Formally beginning his spiritual teaching career under the auspices of the Theosophical Society, Steiner came to use the term Anthroposophy (and spiritual science) for his philosophy, spiritual research, and findings. The influence of Steiner's multifaceted genius has led to innovative and ho...

Messages from Eden: The Autopsy of Existence

by Peter Ujj and Matt Henderson Ellis

Undoubtedly, one of the most intriguing questions of humanity is whether there is higher, ultimate meaning behind existence, and if there is one, what it is. To answer this question, we have been restlessly inventing and creating hundreds of gods only to use them for a while, then abandon them, and replace them with newer and more convincing explanations of existence. This is how and why our gods are born, grow healthy, strong, and glorious, until, one day, they get sick and die. Western civilization has witnessed this birth-evolution-death cycle of gods for a long time: Greek gods perished to give life to Roman deities, Roman and barbarian idols died to give rise to the Judeo-Christian Yahweh. Today, however, seeing the divisions within Christianity, the hopeless struggle of Christian chu...

THE JOURNEY

by Vladimir Bayer

Human life as a journey from darkness to light: Is there a deeper meaning to life beyond the day-to-day drama of mere survival in a world that is full of contradictions? Humans as multidimensional beings: Is there more to us than meets the eye? Reincarnation and past lives somewhere in time: Is there another life after we die? Good versus evil — the killer within us: Is it for real? In THE JOURNEY, Vladimir takes you on a profound inner journey and explores some of the fundamental issues in man’s life: career and family, intimacy and relationships, art of loving and spirituality, good vs. evil, self responsibility vs. self centeredness, the fear of death, the phenomenon of free will vs. God’s will, and the true meaning of self-esteem.“A thought-provoking and thoroughly enjoyable re...

Don't Stop the Geekin'

by Marc Allie and Christopher Tupa

Fitting is important when you are a kid. But when you are a geeky kid, teased and bullied for being different, fitting in is nearly impossible. I grew up nerdy in the 1980s, obsessing over video games, toys, movies, and comic books. Wearing glasses, reading science fiction, and being hopeless at sports were just a few of the things that marked me as a weirdo. This book details some of the struggles I went through as I grew up, before I figured out that fitting in with the crowd wasn't nearly as important as being true to myself....

Write To Remember...

by PHILIP McQUILLAN and Jane L Franklin

Growing up during the Great Depression, Philip had to contend with scarcity, hand-me-downs and a dearth of education options. His older brothers and sisters had all been "guided" into a convent or the priesthood. So how did Philip become a stalwart family man and neighborhood icon? Simply…he met Jean!

Philip had a passion for cooking, quoting Shakespeare and standing on his head. He could say stuff like “anything you can do I can do better” and yet remain a humble man. He had to be humble as Jean could be a hard taskmaster. He once said that his existence under her driving force was “survival of the fittest.” Not one to complain, normally he was willing to be at Jean’s beck and call.

The story begins with a glimpse of his pre-Depression origins, then f...

Ferry Tales

by Brendan Gisby

South Queensferry – the Ferry, it is called by those who live there – sits on the southern shore of the River Forth. The main part of the town nestles between the approaches to the road bridge across the river and that crossing’s much older and more famous neighbour, the Forth Rail Bridge. Nowadays, the town is regarded as another suburb of Edinburgh, having been gradually absorbed by the city. But back in the 1950’s and the early 1960’s, the period when these stories are set, the Ferry was a separate entity belonging to the county of West Lothian, rather than a part of Edinburgh.The town was much smaller then, almost village-like. It was a time when the ferryboats still ran and the distillery was still working and the dockyard was in full swing. But it was also a time of au...
