WHO AM I?
Something about my life
I was born in Stuttgart in Germany in November 1958. The majority of my working life I have worked for and at the Waldorf School, as eurythmist, class teacher
and teacher for religion and mathematics and as headmaster.
My upbringing was much shaped by a father who believed that the best a man could do was to use common sense, and act in a brotherly way. I have the deepest respect for him, especially for his
secure and almost elegant use of thought in the search for truth. The first step was always to acquaint oneself with all the facts. For the dreamy introverted boy who I was, it could be a challenge. But I learned the value of clarity and sober restraint of
him, who now is in his ninetieths, and he was an inspiring example of caring and sharing.
My mother was a sensitive artistic person. She lived as a housewife because an illness prevented her from becoming the medical doctor she wanted to be. She had a
lot of initiative and liked to challenge and develop her childrens abilities. She had a hard time getting completely hold of herself, after she understood the whole truth about fashist Germany, which hit her like a hammer after the war. But she always remained
sure that the deeper solution of the worlds problems had to be love and Christ, which for her most of her life were words which meant the same. She had to fight all her life to be able to maintain this belief, against all scientific and real challenges, but
something within her was unwavering. She conveyed something that went far deeper than truth, ethics and good deeds without denying the value of these: An understanding of the source that first gives real value to morality, an intimate knowledge of the joy
that dwells from divine love and light.
There was always a great tension between my parents inner worlds, not a personal tension, but a difference of inner choices and values. This tension has caused a strong desire within me to find ways to build bridges
between good people and create true peace. I believe this peace can arise when we accept the precious gift of being ourselves and giving from our own source, and find ways to trust the spiritual or moral sources of others. This is an important aspect of living with
the angels: To build peace on the basis of finding faith in our individual way and its importance for the world.
My daily spiritual practice is built on Rudolf Steiner's advices and
suggestions for the building up of spiritual abilities, Of course this spiritual pratice has developed a lot throughout life.
I gradually developed a strong and rewarding relationship to Christianity, and integrated Christian images and ideas into my
inner life, especially those taken from Christianities concept of solidarity. To be able to get there I had to immerse myself into Buddhist and Islamic spirituality. I had to free myself from my Christian limitations, and gain a deeper understanding of religious
/ spiritual practice. These visits into other religions spirituality have created positive inner connections that remain.
In 2010 I read Doreen Virtues book "angel medicine". I experienced a strong stream of power and wisdom, which carried me into a world
of color and fresh uplifting energies The knowledge of the various archangels save orientation. Following up this experience, I have visited several courses with Charles Virtue and Doreen Virtue. They gave new spiritual exercices which unfolded, and widened
my inner life. The challenge of integrating the new gifts of wisdom with the ones that had been in use for many years was strong, and so was the potential for growth. At some point the disharmonies and contradictions were resolved, and there was room for new
