I think the
following books – there are many others, of course, so this
selection is just what it is, a selection, not implying that other
books are not at least equally important to be read; I would like
to also stress that I do not agree with everything stated in these
books or texts, e. g. against some information in the books of
Tolle (albeit the stillness is relatively easily accessible)
through the works of E.
Tolle – I would like to hint at and stress the possibilty
of having unlimited and in a sense everlasting life on the
physical plain as well – should be read by every teacher (I list
two of them, there are more excellent ones written by him, not all
are listed here):
Tolle, Eckhart: The Power of Now. Hodder & Stoughton.
(ISBN: 0340733500) (info)
Tolle, Eckhart: A New Earth. (ISBN-10: 0525948023, ISBN-13:
978-0525948025) (info). In this book,
there is a chapter on education. Although it seems to
be more directed to parents, there are important
hints which might be applicable to the relationship
between teacher and student as well.
- Hawkins, David R.: Power vs. Force. The Hidden Determinants of Human
Behavior. Hay House. (ISBN: 1-56170-933-6).
is also a German version [Hawkins, David R.: Von der Kraft, die
wir ausstrahlen. VAK], I recommend, at least additionally, reading
one, since it is
stronger and newer. – I have, at the time of writing this, only
read the beginning, but it seems to be very strong and promissing
books as to kinesiology can be found here.
- Stratton-Porter, Gene: Michael
[In: The Libary of Indiana Classics.] Bloomington and
Indianapolis: Indiana University Press 1995.
For those interested in a sort of perfect outline of
spiritual "levels of experience" and explantions for quite a lot
of questions, please have a look in the Franklin
Merrell-Wolff's "Experience and Philosophy" described on this page. If you are
still longing for more, maybe this page
might help – meanwhile, I offer a much larger overview in my "Library", though, also see here.
II. Articles, Interviews and
Also, I would recommend reading this
link in German. For English, there is a great podcast series with
Eckhart Tolle and Oprah here.
There is an interesting article by Rudolf Steiner in German here.

March 2013, 090912qa02_imagination_728k mentions a book where an
author shows that deeper creative answers do not come from group
work, but from individuals sitting alone in a room, so to speak.
III. Ideas on Teachers’ Tasks
think that an important task of a teacher is not to "fill" a child
with knowledge of the head (intellect), but to uncover the
capability of receiving true knowledge in an instant. Infusing
"learning" does not mean "wisdom", and learning without wisdom is
to be avoided in the interest of the de-velopment of the world as
well as of realizing reality in its highest sense..
is no thing you cannot teach
if you do open up
whatever be your destiny,
it is to work, the silent pub
of yore is gone, in silence be
a star for everyone - here is your work, your destiny:
it is the teaching One
