“Abstract ideals will be replaced by concrete ideals corresponding to forward-moving evolution. If that does not succeed, the Earth would submerge into materialism, and humanity would have to start over again—following a great catastrophe—either on Earth itself or on a near planet. The Earth needs Anthroposophy! One who understands that is an anthroposophist. — Rudolf Steiner (Feb. 27, 1910)

Sergei O. Prokofieff developed this little book from talks to members of the Anthroposophical Society. They became opportunities for many to question potential membership of the First Class in a more conscious way, and for some to take the decisive step of entering the Michael School.

“This experience gave rise to the occasion for printing this lecture separately for interested individuals, as a stimulus to consider their relationship to the Michael School on Earth against the background of the karma that guides human beings in their present incarnation to anthroposophy. In this sense, the present text may well be an aid for some interested individuals to grasp to its full extent the unique significance of the establishment of the Esoteric School—carried out as it was by Rudolf Steiner based on the Michael Spirit—so as to gain the courage and will to become a member out of full inner conviction.” (from the preface)

Sergei O. Prokofieff

Sergei O. Prokofieff (1954-2014) was born in Moscow, where he studied fine arts and painting at the Moscow School of Art. At an early age he encountered the work of Rudolf Steiner and quickly realized that his life would be dedicated to the Christian path of esoteric knowledge. He wrote his first book, Rudolf Steiner and the Founding of the New Mysteries, while living in Soviet Russia, and it was published in English in 1994. After the fall of Communism, he helped establish the Anthroposophical Society in Russia. In 2001, he became a member of the Executive Council of the General Anthroposophical Society at the Goetheanum in Switzerland. More than 30 of his books have been translated into English. Sergei Prokofieff passed away in Dornach, Switzerland.
