“Rudolf Steiner presents the human soul dilemma, divided into male and female attributesbut offers a path of development that will eventually lead to overcoming these – what Jung calls “individuation”, a fusion with the real self or true ego of the human beingWe live in a hyper sexualized society, surrounded by sexual imagery and content in almost every area of lifeThis poses us many challenges, including increased blurring and confusion between love and sex; struggles between men and women in more of their roles in society; and consistent assault on the innocence of childhood; andDespite the sensitivity of his time, Rudolf Steiner has made an enormous contribution to our understanding of the complex theme of sexuality.In this freshly compiled anthology, Steiner describes the point of evolution at which human beings split from the androgynous and unique being sexed to become male or femaleIt traces the evolution of gender roles in society, from the patriarchal matriarchal past to the patriarchal dominant present.The division of the sexes brings suffering, but also the possibility of reaching more advanced stages of loveIn a distant future, humanity may evolve to sexuality in a new form, with even the possibility of reproduction being metamorphosedRefreshing, Steiner is not to judge and not to preach asceticismHe recognizes the “too human” fragility of people are confronted in their personal lives, even in the case of great characters such as GoetheSex is a necessary step in human evolution, and the separation of nature from human being is a fact of our age.His healing will be gradual, but, like Amfortas in the Grail story – whose wounded groin is a metaphor of love misadventure – we can all be healed by love and compassion.
