Rudolf Steiner podcast episodes when doing an Apple Podcast search after I had heard
Gary Lachman talking about his books about Steiner and Blavatsky on a 'Skeptiko' podcast episode -DEMOlitioN of the Rational?-)
Speaking About Fishy Things and Librarians
While I have never been a member of the Theosophical Society I was a member of their library in Brisbane for a number of years in my late teenage years and borrowed books and cassette tapes (That's right cassettes ... I did say my late teenage years:-) of lectures that were given in their lodges -

|My TS seal like trinket|
Being from a mixed secular Jewish family background I can't say that I'm too worried about the swastika missing from the seal, to be honest, but I've never seen the TS seal as being a Nazi symbol anyway.
The swastika symbol, 卐 (right-facing or clockwise) or 卍 (left-facing, counterclockwise, or sauwastika), is an ancient religious icon in the cultures of Eurasia. It is used as a symbol of divinity and spirituality in Indian religions, including Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism.
|I keep the TS like seal on my bookshelf now|
I started reading the book after hearing Garry Lachman talking about the Theosophical Society in the latest podcasts I have been listening to lately.
The book was written by the late Joy Mills and reads like a series of boring financial minutes of the years since the founding of the American TS and is a real slog to get through, even for me.
I have to often battle to stay awake while reading it ironically:-)

|The time I woke up this morning, minus a minute or two|
I decided I would take a photo of my bedside table with the clock showing 8:15, but by the time I had switched my phone on and it had booted up the time was 8:16, nearly 8:17am, which made me think of my old BTTF post and the first bomb that was dropped on Japan -
When I was wondering what time it was when I woke up in bed this morning I saw it was 8:15 and thought to myself, of course it's 8:15, as that's the time that it has always been;-)

And while I know even less about Rudolf Steiner and his beliefs I am finding some of his re-read lectures an interesting and thought provoking listen.

Especially this latest one which dropped onto my iPad overnight about sleep.
Which makes me ponder just where I have consciously been for over a third of my 57 years of life on this planet when I have drifted off to sleep and where I will consciously be tonight once more when I can't stay "woke" any longer;-)
Melbourne Demons won an AFL Grand Final trophy ironically enough:-)
