Love is Higher than Opinion - Steiner

Love is higher than opinion. If people love one another, the most varied opinions can be reconciled. Hence it is deeply significant that in Theosophy no religion is attacked and no religion is specially singled out, but all are understood, and so there can be brotherhood because the adherents of the most varied religions understand one another.

This is one of the most important tasks for mankind today and in the future: that men should learn to live together and understand one another. If this human fellowship is not achieved, all talk of occult development is empty.

Great quote and great lecture. Really liked the start where he mentioned the T-A-O and the red Indians and where he took us, to the above quote, and the journey there profound to say the least. Still I shouldn't gush over Steiner he wouldn't of liked it. Yeah, it was ok.

Dear Richard,
For a discussion on this, I would recommend joining an Anthroposophy group on Facebook.

If possible, it's always better to get it from the "horse's mouth", as it were.
