The life of Jesus as the prototype for our lives and the future of humanity.
In this deeply moving and profound presentation, Brian Gray reviews the life of Jesus as a paradigm that helps us look back and "re-member" ourselves in our previous incarnations, and then guides us to “understand the signs of the times”. This inspires living images that move us forward individually, which ensures the future salvation of humanity.
The whole arc of the life of Jesus is here, integrated in a profound and deeply moving manner. Brian weaves together the breathtaking tapestry of humanity’s cosmic adventure:
from the Fall to the Apocalypse . . .
from Krishna and Buddha to Zoroaster and the Magi . . .
from the two Jesus children to the Nazarene to Christ Jesus . . .
from birth to baptism to temptation . . .
from crucifixion to resurrection to ascension . . .
from the Christ Impulse to the Mystery of Golgotha . . .
from Kali Yuga to the Age of Michael to Lucifer and Ahriman . . .
from astronomy to astrology to astrosophy . . .
from the Apostles and Mary Magdalene to Rudolf Steiner and you.
Brian then shares with us the fruit of decades of spiritual research. Building upon Rudolf Steiner's indications, Brian offers the 33.3 year life of Christ as a “lens” that helps us perceive how it is that what we “seed” is what we “manifest”. Steiner said that a fundamental rhythm of the earth is visible on a 1-year cycle, that a primary rhythm in human life progresses on a 7-year cycle, and that history progresses on a 33-1/3 year cycle. Brian explains how this understanding aligns us with the working of the spiritual hierarchies through rich and meaningful living imaginations.
