FRAC : Edward Schuldt (8/27/21)
'The Third Beatitude: Inheriting the Earth'
"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
We will begin our exploration of the Beatitudes with the Third Beatitude: it is in many respects the most accessible, and it confronts us with a question that resounds in the core of our being: What is the purpose of my existence?
What does it mean to inherit the earth? And, if I am meek, am I worthy to inherit it?
In this evening, we will explore the mission of the earth administered by the Exusiai, the Spirits of Form, and the foundation for it laid through the sacrifices of the Thrones, the Kyriotetes, and the Dynamis. We will look at what it means for each of us as individual human beings to receive the inheritance of the earth, our preparation for receiving that inheritance, and the obstacles that stand in the way of living fully into the potential of the Third Beatitude.
This evening will also open the gateway for working with the Second and First Beatitudes in subsequent evenings at the Front Range Anthroposophical Café.
Edward Schuldt began to work intensively with the Beatitudes in 2011. That work has centered on exploring the Beatitudes as they express the mysteries of the human constitution and relate to the evils dwelling in the sub-earth. Edward has been active in spiritual science since 1975, first during his time at the University of Chicago and then during his years in Camphill, the Waldorf Movement, and beyond. He is a member of the Anthroposophical Society, the First Class, the Camphill Community, and the Christian Community.
