10. The Spiritual Planes II

Parsifal! This word as such is so well known among earthmen, and yet none of them has any idea of the reality.

A poetic work, a legend! With this they are correct if they mean that which is known about the word today; for in reality what they know is nothing but a legend that has become a poetic work, which was preserved as such as a fragment from former knowledge.

As I have already pointed out in my first lecture about this, it was always only small fragments which came down from spiritual planes into the gross matter of this earth long, long ago.

The authors of the Grail legends known today are by no means the first who concerned themselves with this and who, as they became absorbed in their work, were once again able to intuit a few glimmers of light.

Far, far back lies the time when the first hints about the Light Castle and its inhabitants descended to the earth from the spiritual planes, together with the tidings of the Holy Grail.

At that time it was received with reverential awe and childlike confidence by the inhabitants of the earth, who were still working without disruption in co-operation with the elemental beings, whose advice they gladly took. Without realizing it the human beings in turn helped the elementals with the radiations of their spirit-sparks; and thus Creation increasingly unfolded itself in the World of Gross Matter with the spirit sparks, which held the promise of a wonderful blossoming.

At that time, long before the known great upheavals took place on earth, and even before men made an idol of their intellect, thus bringing about their movement away from the Light and their downfall, a connection with the Luminous Castle was created; for the rays could flow unhindered all the way down to the earth, and in these rays men on earth could already intuitively sense Parsifal.

Then, however, proceeding from the human beings, the reign of their intellect-idolatry set in, causing the connection with the Light Castle to be cut off, which was automatically followed by ignorance about it, entailing the impossibility of a spiritual sensing through the intuitive perception.

Finally the ability to perceive anything animistic also dried up, and all of the natural experiencing in the knowledge about the animistic helpers sank into the realm of fables, so that the development which up till then had been striving upwards in a straight line quite unexpectedly received a rift.

If men had remained as they were at the time I referred to, when the first tidings of the Luminous Castle and of Parsifal came down to the earth, then through their steady ascent they would today indeed be Lords of all Gross Matter in the best up-building sense. Nor would any human being have been destroyed during the upheavals which were bound to occur from time to time in the development toward maturity.

The great catastrophes were always a necessity of the development, but not the destruction of so many peoples, which until now has nearly always been closely connected with this.

If men had not frivolously and wantonly given up the connection with the animistic helpers and the Luminous Heights, they would always have been warned in time of any emergency and led away from the endangered regions in order to escape destruction! For this is what happened at the time when men let themselves be guided willingly by the helpers, which the Creator assigned to them from the animistic and spiritual worlds, with whom they sought to maintain the connection with joy and gratitude.

In this manner, they later always robbed themselves of these invaluable aids, owing to the conceited would-be cleverness of their intellects, and on several occasions they thus forced their own painful destruction in the same way as they are now bringing it about again, since they no longer want to listen to the last calls from the Light and even think they know everything better, just as they did so often in the past!

Tribulation, despair and destruction are always and only the Creation-lawful reciprocal effects of wrong doing, which surely is not difficult to grasp if one only wills it! This contains such simple and clear naturalness that later you will hardly understand how it could happen that such a thing could be overlooked and not strictly heeded, in order not only to spare yourselves all suffering but even to change it into joy.

Today you yourselves see clearly enough that no person can really defend himself against this. No nation, nor the joint volition of the whole of mankind, would manage to achieve this; for everything in Creation remains but a creature, dependent upon the Will of God! It will never be otherwise.

Thus it has always exclusively been the wrongful act of submission to the bound and binding intellect, to whose natural consequenes many individuals and entire nations had to fall victim, since they kept themselves off from any possibility of salvation through higher guidance.

You can easily recognize the great simplicity of the effect of the Divine Laws therein, and also see what men missed for themselves.

With this, I have today given you a brief glimpse into that great activity of Creation which has already caused men many a headache, so that through the Message you would be able to see that man has only himself to blame for all of the distress, all of the fear and the suffering; and that he could have avoided a great deal had he not stubbornly embarked upon false paths.

Through the Message you can clearly recognize and substantiate every happening that takes place in Creation. You know about the unalterable effects of the Laws of Creation, which I have explained to you, you know of their simplicity and greatness which is easily assessable.

You will experience ever more that with the Message, I have given you the key to the right explanation of every happening, and therewith of the entire Creation! In spite of all of this you still have no idea what treasure you are in reality holding in your hands!

Let your fervor and untiring watchfulness gradually fathom it, then you will have the path to eternal life, which you will gain merely by walking it.

Thus primeval ages ago men had already received the first and right tidings about Parsifal. This knowledge was passed on by word of mouth from parents to children.

But through the declining purity of the connection with the Creation activity, the transmission of the original knowledge also gradually became clouded, and was imperceptibly distorted and finally mutilated by the growing intellect, remaining only as a legend which no longer bore any resemblance to the erstwhile knowledge.

Those human beings who were striving for nobility then time and again took up these fragmentary legends and tried to create from them something gross materially here on earth, because they imagined that these transmissions must have originated in an earthly model from the distant past.

This they wanted to renew, which they attempted to do frequently over great intervals of time. This is why even today many a researcher imagines he has found an origin in one of the earthly attempts of past centuries, without ever hitting upon the right thing.

Man does not emerge from the confusion however hard he may exert himself; for he lacks connection with the reality, which I want to restore to him in order to eradicate all that is wrong.

Parsifal! He cannot be separated from Imanuel; for Imanuel is in Him and He works from out of Parsifal.

It may also be said that Parsifal is a cloak of Imanuel formed by the Primordial Queen Elizabeth, through which Imanuel works, standing at the head of Creation, which could only come into existence from out of Him and otherwise would not be, simply could not be; for Imanuel in Parsifal is in fact the origin and starting point of Creation.

He is the Creative Will of God and God is with Him, in Him. That something like this could be dragged down to become that figure which people today imagine Parsifal to be is something that only this mankind on earth is capable of as they press everything into the dust through their intellect, which itself is born of the dust.

Whatever this mankind tries to absorb with their intellect they also drag into the dust as a natural consequence, i.e. they drag it down into the range of the earthly ability to understand. With this everything is confined within the narrow limits of coarse matter, and that which is highest is wrapped in the density and ponderousness of the slow movement in the zone of the most extreme cooling-off, and quite naturally cannot even bear any resemblance to the reality of that which was so dragged down, which reality is found in altogether different conditions and in such heights as the human spirit is unable to grasp, much less the earthbound intellect!

The expression “to drag into the dust” does not here mean to press into the dirt, but merely to make it earthly!

The expressions dust and born of the dust are used in place of the concept gross matter, something which will perhaps be more easily understood by some men, because it is a commonly used, popular saying.

This then is Parsifal! The First in Creation! He bears within Himself an Unsubstantiate core from out of God, is connected with Imanuel and remains so in all eternity, because Imanuel works out of Him and thus rules the Creations. Thus He is the King of all kings, the Son of the Light, also called the Prince of the Light!

Now compare this with the character in the poetic writings! What an impossible caricature you see before you.

However, it is understandable how all of this happened when one takes an overview of the whole and divides it into three large sections.

But make each of these three sections, each one by itself, come to life in picture form before your spirit.

Only in this way can you survey the whole and understand what I am trying to make clear to you therewith.

The first thing which is fundamental for an understanding is:

To think of Parsifal as the Son of the Light, Who descends into Creation from above, and is not per chance lifted up from below, as the beginning and the end in Creation, the Alpha and the Omega for all of the weaving outside of the Divine, and therewith King of the Holy Grail, King of the Created ones!

The second thing is:

Parsifal’s great work of purification which leads Him personally through the worlds, with the unreserved condition that He must, through His own experiencing, get to know all the evil, and that this has to end with the fettering of Lucifer for the protection of the Creations and of all the creatures that remain after the purification.

The third thing is:

The fall and great failure of the developed ones, i.e., of the human spirits in the World of Matter, which necessitates the breaking of their wrong self-will, the direct installation of God’s Will in the establishment of the Millennium, until all of mankind’s volition submits to the Will of God, thus completely ensuring the undisturbed further development of the Creations in the vibration of the Light-permeated spheres of movement.

He who grasps these three sections well, one by one, and who is at least able to conceive them clearly as a picture, can quite easily understand how the wrong poetic writings of today gradually came into existence. Partial tidings of the three happenings came down to the earth here and there, foretelling much of it.

In their lack of understanding men pressed everything into the coarse conceptions of the densest materiality, placed it onto the earth and thus made up a concoction from which literature eventually emerged.

You must follow my words precisely, and you must also obey them, and picture to yourselves living illustrations of the three sections as being tremendous individual happenings of which only partial knowledge could reach the earth through channels opened for this purpose; these channels, however, are badly clogged and in any case only allow to pass through that which had been dimmed and already mixed with what men themselves thought up, forming muddy deposits in these channels. For thousands of years already this knowledge has been unable to penetrate to the earth clearly and purely.

With all this I am referring only to happenings in Creation which forcibly arose out of the development through the wrong volition of failing creatures, and for the time being I am following this one path in my explanations! Everything else I am still leaving aside. Therefore this does not include the attempted redemption of earthmen by the Son of God Jesus either, for this was a Work of Love standing all by itself.

You must follow me precisely, otherwise you will not be able to understand. Perhaps it is therefore a good idea for me to explain to you what happens when I speak to you:

I see before me the entire happening, for I overlook it in its complete activity down to the most delicate ramifications. I see everything simultaneously in the knowledge; for it is I who weaves it.

Now, by what I wish to explain, I try to prepare a straight road on which you can grasp the main points in such a way that you receive a basic picture for that which you are meant to grasp in the lecture. However, all this I must first press into such a reduced form as is adapted to the perceptive faculty of the developed human spirit. Once I have achieved this then I must still seek suitable words and forms of expression for you to form that picture which I want to give.

All this, however, does not happen successively but simultaneously within myself, and then I give you, in a form which is accessible to you, the happening which you can neither survey nor grasp, in which past and future take place in the present, a process the nature of which the human spirit is utterly incapable of thinking!

Thus you receive drop by drop from out of what is unfathomable to you, yet in such a way that together these drops yield a palatable and powerful drink which strengthens you in your knowledge and helps you upwards, if only you will accept this refreshment as provision for your journey.

Very often there is a great deal that I must at first leave out in order to bring it back in other places much later, but then always in such a way that it completes the picture to which it actually belongs; for all the weaving of Creation above him is far too intricately patterned, much too alive and mobile for the earthly human spirit to grasp, even pictorially, unless he receives it in a form made accessible to him through special descriptions.

Just take one tenth of that trouble which I must take merely in order to make it accessible to you, and you will have accomplished everything for yourselves!

Later on I shall perhaps also describe how things are in the Light Castle, and then illuminate those planes which were able to develop at a greater distance, and finally down to where the human spirit-germs remain as the last precipitation of the spiritual, in order to find development in wandering through all the Worlds of Matter, for the fulfillment of which they all bear the urge and longing within.

First I shall give pictures of how it is, and perhaps later on of how it came into existence at one time; for the happening is too great. First you must know how things are, for this is what you need, since for yourselves you must always take into account the present and the future unfolding from that present. If you stand firmly in this then we can stride on-wards in the knowledge.

For today learn to recognize the three basic sections that are connected with the name Parsifal.
