THE TRIPTYCH GRAIL: Abraham, Isaac & Jacob

AS ABOVE SO BELOW I would’ve loved to enhance this photo and show a good view of Abram, Isaac and Jacob depicted underneath Melchizedek. However, the original painting was destroyed by bombs dropping in WW2. Finding Anna May-Rychter’s own words on the subject proved to be increasingly difficult. Early anthroposophists weren’t exactly public figures in […]

THE TRIPTYCH GRAIL: AN INTRODUCTION

Anna May Rychter was a bustling realist painter at the turn of the 20th Century. At some point she entered into a domestic partnership with Thaddeus von Rychter and the couple moved to East Jerusalem. It was here she painted several pieces of the Holy Land in watercolor many of which are still up for […]

SHADOW VS. EGO

Anyone who has studied the psychology of Carl Jung is familiar with the concepts of the shadow and self. Those of us who have embarked on the path of working with our shadows have become painstakingly aware of just how much of our actions are automatically performed without a second thought.

What are known as light workers in the mystical community have been intoning certain vowel sounds to raise the vibrations of our collective consciousness for thousands of years now. As we settle into the Age of Aquarius we are seeing more and more people tuning into the Cosmic Mind of God. There’s this new age […]

QUANTUM MYSTICISM EXPLAINED

It has become incredibly obvious that science and religion have taken huge strides in deepening our understanding of the Universe. Recent discoveries have even started bringing these two areas of study together, albeit begrudgingly. Science rejects religion and religion rejects science.

WE ARE NOT MACHINES

It’s so easy to get caught up in all of our technological advance and become lost in the world of cyberspace. We collect our news from electronic devices, and buy into the notion that the people we want the world to see in our online world is actually us, but it’s not.  As we become […]
