[1057W-{1/22/81} CD Vol. II, p. 605]

[P. 605] {FEUER} “ ‘Free’ means ‘true,’ someone who has no need to lie – otherwise ‘free’ would always have something negative about it; ‘freedom,’ free of this or that person – but in this case, he says, it is the lie which is negative.” [1057W-{1/22/81} CD Vol. II, p. 605]


[1058W-{1/23/81}CD Vol. II, p. 605-606]

[P. 605] “In our morning conversation he talks profoundly and at length about the mother’s womb, [P. 606] the life within it, the sacredness of it, and he ends with praise of Goethe, who recognized the divinity in these manifestations of Nature. {FEUER} {SCHOP} But how could one ever have visualized a personal God who created all these things!

[1059W-{1/23/81}CD Vol. II, p. 606]

[P. 606] {FEUER} {anti-FEUER?} “He … says he can well understand why Goethe, out of his sense of the sacredness of Nature, felt the urge to examine things individually, for one can never pay too much attention to the individual element – to pursue Nature as a whole, to see it as a cosmos, is foolishness.” [1059W-{1/23/81}CD Vol. II, p. 606]

[P. 610] {FEUER} “Our morning conversation turns to perception and its freedom from sin; yesterday R. told Jouk. that the best thing one could do was to occupy oneself with art, but not in the service of any great power; he comes back to this and says that art is the transfiguration of perception, just as religion is the transfiguration of the Will.” [1060W-{1/30/81} CD Vol. II, p. 610]


[1061W-{1/30/81} CD Vol. II, p. 610]

[P. 610] {FEUER} “At lunch, too, in connection with the fish, he says how terrible it is that the human being, the only creature to whom Nature has given feelings of sympathy, should then stifle them.” [1061W-{1/30/81} CD Vol. II, p. 610]


[1062W-{1/31/81} CD Vol. II, p. 612]

[P. 612] {FEUER} “… ‘Hamlet.’ R. … says that everything in this is agitation, dawning madness, Hamlet the modern man, disintegrated and incapable of action, seeing the world for what it is.” [1062W-{1/31/81} CD Vol. II, p. 612]


[1063W-{1-2/81} Know Thyself – 2nd Supplement to ‘Religion and Art’: PW Vol. VI, P. 264-265]

[P. 264] {SCHOP} “Who ever finds that ‘Know Thyself’ applied to any rating of the world? Not one Historic action do we know, that betrays that doctrine’s influence on the transactors. We strike
