About the Book
Have you ever felt a yearning to access the higher worlds within you? Have you ever wondered about what your true purpose is?
If so, you could scarcely have a better guide than the 20th century Austrian philosopher Rudolph Rudolf Steiner, whose evolutionary ideas are still being felt and used today. While most people have never heard of Steiner, most are familiar with the movements he inspired. As the founder of biodynamic agriculture, which eventually led to the organic food movement, and the popular alternative Waldorf approach to education, Steiner’s reach is much broader than his recognition.
However, Steiner’s language and terminology have made it difficult for non-Steinerians to penetrate through to the brilliance and effectiveness of his Spiritual Science. Fortunately for the rest of us, Eliza Joslin Kendall has taken on the sacred work of making Steiner’s books comprehensible to the spiritually dedicated layperson as well as followers of Steiner.
In Book 2 of her Simply Steiner© series, Kendall guides readers through Steiner’s process of obtaining access to what he calls “the Higher Worlds” so that we can help transform the earth into a planet of love.
A Higher Worlds Primer
From time immemorial, saints and sages have pursued direct access to the spiritual dimension of reality that lives within our everyday, normal world. Some call this experience, Satori or Enlightenment. Others call it tuning into the energy of the Universe or getting into a Flow state. Steiner called this dimension of our experience “the Higher Worlds,” and a great deal of his life’s work was dedicated to helping earnest seekers gain access to it.
In Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and Its Attainment, Kendall brings you into direct contact with the nature of the Higher Worlds. Through this esoteric training, you can develop a “supersensible” consciousness that will lead to a kind of initiation into a higher plane of perceptions. In this way, you may cross the threshold into a consciousness that will benefit not only you but also all of humanity—at a time when we need this most.
Translating Steiner for a New Century
By streamlining and clarifying much of Rudolf Steiner’s originally worded writing, Kendall brings Steiner’s brilliance and clear, precise guidance on the subject to a modern readership that is hungry for substance, for knowledge of the Higher Worlds for the sake of their own and the Earth’s evolution. Steiner provides a kind of Virgil to our Dante, a knowledgeable guide to the place within us that knows the Higher Worlds but has lost contact-or that wishes to have contact for the first time.
What was an esoteric secret in earlier times has become a survival necessity in our time. We must evolve to a higher plane in our human consciousness, for the transformation that is seeking to take place on the earth. Our Participation in Earth’s Evolution as the Planet of Love-to come about. The more of us who can ascend to the levels that Steiner gives us not only glimpses of but also pathways of entry into, the more we can take our place as a “light-worker” in the spiritual and physical dimensions of the earth.
“When I was seeking my spiritual identity and connection to the world around me, I was introduced to the writings and beliefs of Rudolph Steiner. However, his lectures were difficult to read and comprehend, and I lost interest. Now, in the latter part of my life, I am thrilled to find in Eliza Joslin Kendall’s book an interpretation of Steiner’s belief in spiritual science and attainment of higher powers, presented in a practical way through developmental stages that I could relate to or choose to come back to for further study. I believe, as Steiner did, that we all are born with innate qualities to acquire a higher knowledge of life through goodness and virtue. By reading this book, I gained a better understanding of ways to pursue this knowledge in my life today.

From the Author
Why I Chose to Focus on Steiner’s Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and its attainment
My concept of the “Simply Steiner” series was to offer a more simplified version of Steiner’s thoughts, books, and lectures, but to keep the content fully intact. The first book in this series, The Gospel of St. John: Revisiting the Vision of Rudolf Steiner for the 21st Century, was written in the Spring of 2019 and published in February 2020.
This book that you are holding now, Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and Its Attainment, is the second in the series. Because this book is so densely rich with Steiner’s spiritual gems that need to be contemplated and made personally relevant, I also developed a set of Affirmation cards, with quotes correlated with the chapters, to be used for book club material or as a Select-from-the-Deck affirmations by readers and for practitioner use as well.
The person you may become by giving yourself to the contents of this book may well be the person you deeply, spiritually long to be. And that person will have the clarity, intelligence, heart, and power to help the earth evolve into what Steiner has prophesied in The Gospel of St. John and other places: the planet of love.
Be of good courage, as you read; do not be dissuaded by the challenges Steiner presents.
For those seeking spirit… In each one of us there lies dormant the capability of which to acquire for ourselves knowledge of the higher worlds.
Eliza Joslin Kendall holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and was honored by the Women’s Hall of Fame for a Start-up/Small Business in 2003. She is a Certified Transformational Life Coach, as well as adept in Energy Healing, and Mediation and Conflict Resolution. Blessed with supersensible perceptions since childhood, she has long been deeply involved with the writings of Rudolf Steiner. Raised with Steiner’s ideas from a young age, she found in them a spiritual lodestar for our time. “When I read Steiner,” she writes, “I just knew that I knew all that he was talking about, as if I had read it before. His writings resonated so deeply within me that I immediately felt called to take Steiner and his philosophy to the public in a way that can be taken in by the soul, not just the mind. I continue to feel that this is greatly needed. Especially in today’s world.”
