From the opening of Book I:
In view of the increase of natural clairvoyance or spiritual perception in our time a need has arisen for greater awareness and knowledge of the "Path of the Three I's, Imagination, Inspiration and Intuition," described by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) throughout his teaching life. This is a safe middle path between the distorted extremes of 'new age' phenomena and the ever-increasing technological subculture. Yet this path is known to very few. Related to this path is "the thinking of the heart," which is the capacity to distinguish between what is true and what is false in the exchange of spiritual content. The Writing of the Heart delves deeply into definitions of the Three I's, and their recognition in experience, through offering carefully written communications that convey supersensible perception as well as the responses to these perceptions by the participants of the Brunnen von Christus group. Also included in the book are other subjects discussed on the forum as well as literary contributions.
"...I do regard it as my own personal task to say nothing that is given by the intellect as such but to take things in the way they are directly and immediately given to occult vision. Only afterward are they permeated with the power of understanding. ...We must learn to take a different attitude toward the great riddles and secrets of the cosmos, to approach them... with all the faculties of our soul. Then we shall ourselves become partakers in the whole of human evolution. It will be for us like a fountain of sublime, all-human consciousness. We shall have fullness of soul." - Rudolf Steiner

"...In the apocalyptic animals, lion, eagle, cow and man, we are shown an evolutionary stage of mankind. There is, and always will be as long as the earth shall exist, a group soul for the higher manifestation of men, which is represented by the Lamb in the center of the seal, the mystical Lamb, the sign of the Redeemer." - Rudolf Steiner, Occult Signs and Symbols.
God is Love. When the truth of this is recognized, we shall be on the first lap of the road leading to the arrival of 'Heaven on Earth.'
