introduction

We are at the threshold of the Cosmic Age wherein man will begin to recognize his divine relationship to the Creator and his Oneness with all Creation.” - Lao Russel

The world has never yet known peace. War has always been the basis of human relations the world over.” - Walter Russel

“Man is at the crossroads of his unfolding. The old way of life which built his empires of hate and fear must be abandoned. This coming age must be built upon God's one law of balanced interchange in all human relations. There is no other alternative. To continue the old way means the destruction of civilization by multiplied hate. To follow the new path will mean the multiplication of love which alone will bring peace, happiness and prosperity to man. - Walter Russel

rainbow“This New Age is marking the dawn of a new world-thought. That new thought is a new cosmic concept of the value of man to man. The whole world is discovering that all mankind is one and that the unity of man is real – not just an abstract idea. Mankind is beginning to discover that the hurt of any man hurts every man, and, conversely, the uplift of any man uplifts every man (…) The semi-chaos of this age is the maelstrom of man’s transformation from material man to cosmic man. We can plainly see the growth of a unifying world Consciousness.”. - Walter Russel

We will find what is needed to heal humanity; it is harmony between science, art, religion, and morality.” - Rudolf Steiner

The Greater Community education must begin. The time is late, the hour is late, and the situation grows darker and more difficult with each passing day.” - M.V. Summers

Life itself is a transcendent adventure. At its best it is tremendously difficult. It is a huge mountain of unknown height whose top is hidden in an impenetrable veil which every man must climb. From that upward journey of life there is no escape for anyone, and no man knows what he must face on that lifelong climb up its tortuous paths Of blazed and unmarked paths which man must tread in light or dark - and in the dark oft lose his way and pitch headlong into stark tragedy which may be any man's, the very next moment after happiness and glory will seem to have been forever attained. (...)” - Walter Russel

“We are not just humans - human men and women who deal with each other as humans - human men and women who reproduce male and female children to grow up and be the same kind of humans. We are more than just human beings, placed on earth to manifest our humanity, we are spiritual beings placed on earth to manifest The One Supreme Being - and to know ourselves as THAT ONE. Our SPIRITUAL RELATIONS should, therefore, transcend our HUMAN RELATIONS.” - Walter Russel

project purpose

“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth, not going all the way and not starting.” - Lao Tzu

“Deal with the difficult while it is yet easy. Deal with the great while it is yet small.” - Lao Tzu

The whole purpose of the Wikischool.org project is to help inspire you for this great journey towards inner and outer truth… and to keep going!

By letting the wise men and women of our times speak to us in untainted and clear wordings, we can get re-inspired and see the beautiful coherence of true knowledge in action.

Wikischool uses selected quotes of their deeply inspired works, with added highlighting, notes and sometimes illustrations. In particular, Wikischool tries to show the harmony between the various topics and the universal cosmology described by Walter and Lao Russell.

project name

The name Wikischool is a conjugation of the words “wiki” and “school”.

The word “wiki” has an interesting set of meanings in its original polynesian context: lively, energetic, vigorous, swift-and-accurate, fast, quick.

The word “school” comes from the ancient Greek word “σχολή” (“schole”), and originally meant something like: “the search for the wisdom of life”, or “the pursuit of leisure, not occupation”.

Hopefully the project can live up to these lofty descriptions.
