Syncretism

Syncretism involves the merger and analogizing of several originally discrete traditions, especially in the theology and mythology of religion, thus asserting an underlying unity and allowing for an inclusive approach to other faiths. Syncretism also occurs commonly in expressions of arts and culture (known as eclecticism) as well as politics (syncretic politics). Nomenclature, orthography, and etymology[edit] The Oxford English Dictionary first attests the word syncretism in English in 1618. It derives from modern Latin syncretismus, drawing on Greek συγκρητισμός (synkretismos), meaning "Cretan federation". The Greek word occurs in Plutarch's (1st century AD) essay on "Fraternal Love" in his Moralia (2.490b).

Rudolf Steiner's exercises for spiritual development

According to Steiner's view of history, in earlier periods people were capable of direct spiritual perceptions, or clairvoyance, but not yet of rational thought; more recently, rationality has been developed at the cost of spiritual perception, leading to the alienation characteristic of modernity. Steiner proposed that humanity now has the task of synthesizing the rational and contemplative/spiritual components of cognition, whereby spiritual perception would be awakened through intensifying thinking.[1] A central principle of Steiner's proposed path to spiritual development is that self-development - inner transformation - is a necessary part of the spiritual path: "for every step in spiritual perception, three steps are to be taken in moral development.

As we ascend out of the human condition, the potential for deep relationship and interaction with the Star Beings (or the angelics) becomes manifest. To enter into relationship with them is a means of deepening our own relationship with our own Immortal Being. As with human relationships, these relationships with higher-dimensional Beings are tools for cleansing away subtle blockages to the energies of Source. These Beings are also on hand to assist ascending beings into their collective and will often act as ‘travel guides’ for the Upper Planes. Deep relationship with multi-dimensional Extra-Terrestrial Intelligences becomes possible through releasing ones preconditioned beliefs that one may have about ‘aliens’, which are invariably false.
