5.0 out of 5 stars A Manual for Living in this World
Even if one is not interested in knowing about and experiencing higher worlds, this book is a great guide to living, full of wisdom and insight. A true spiritual path is also a path toward becoming a mature human being, which may not be terribly exciting to people seeking spiritual fireworks or wanting to promote egoistic aims.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Manual for Living in this World, Jan. 29 2004

Dr. W Terry Howell (Franklin, Tennessee United States) - See all my reviews
Even if one is not interested in knowing about and experiencing higher worlds, this book is a great guide to living, full of wisdom and insight. A true spiritual path is also a path toward becoming a mature human being, which may not be terribly exciting to people seeking spiritual fireworks or wanting to promote egoistic aims. This path is one of selflessness and the strengthening of attention; both needed in an self-centered world suffering from an ever increasing attention deficit disorder. Steiner only speaks of what he has experienced personally. He is not a guru and expects no one to take his word for the truth of what he says. He encourages one to be open minded, try the exercises with patience and consistency(harder than one might think)and verify the truth for one's self.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Five Basic Books, Jan. 1 2003
Steiner's written authorship was limited to a handful of written works and this one is the most accessible and thought-provoking.
With 1000's of lectures some available in book form (catalogued in German with English editions secondary), Steiner himself pointed out that his written works were intended for a reading audience, whereas the lectures were in the oral tradition, originally not intended for print and largely contextual within the time, place and attendence.
This is a great place to start to learn more about this spiritual Da Vinci. It focuses on his spiritual philosphy with supporting excercises. His Theosophy is transitional in that it bridges his roots in Theosophy with his founding of Anthroposophy. His Philsophy of Freedom is helpful in understanding his development. For Steiner the man, see his Autobiography.
From there the inquirer is encouraged to study his lectures as supplements to his basic books.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, April 30 2000
By 
Kenji_Aishia (Western Australia) - See all my reviews
Although I have not yet fully completed this book, I have to say this has to be one of the greatest books ever written! "How to know higher worlds" has drastically changed the way I consider myself and the world around me. This book is a must have for those searching to enrich their inner (and somewhat outer) lives. Steiner introduces many basic esoteric priciples and clears up a lot of the stigma revolving around modern occultism. This book is a fantastic basis for the beggining occultist to take their first steps into the spiritual world. Most of the books content involves conditioning of the spiritual senses and occult philosophies. So, if you are seriously considering awakening yourself to the spiritual world, Steiner is a fantastic stepping stone and this book is a definite must have.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent manual for spiritually-focused individuals. If you have been on a path of personal work, inner self-awareness and knowledge, this manual shows you the steps of ever greater mysteries which are (sooner or later) to be discovered.
