In 1894 Steiner wrote his first major book, “The philosophy of freedom”. Here he writes about his own monistic epistemology and proves that within the karmic necessity we have a great degree of freedom because we can think. The reading of this book can help you on the way to fully and consciously unfold your individuality through a sense-free, living thinking. With this you start your first steps in a totally new initiation path, which belongs to the era in which we live. In 2013 I wrote my own “philosophy of freedom” with “Quantum Transactional Analysis and Spirituality”. In this I give my own epistemology and I opt for qualitative scientific research. This book can guide you in setting your first steps in the liberation of your personality through free thinking in a phenomenological way. I describe how you can use script-transforming mourning processes to arrive at the essence of who you really are, always have been and who you may become again: a free, autonomous and mature human. Moreover, these script-transforming mourning processes are part of a contemporary, modern way of initiation.

“Quantum Transactional analysis & Spirituality” is an in clearly language written and by everyone smoothly readable book, where different frames of reference and perceptions pollinate and fertilize each other. Eric Berne’s transactional analysis is brought to a higher level and poured with a Jungian sauce, where images, dreams, thoughts and symbols got their meaning. The quantum field of zero point energy is allied to the elemental beings or nature spirits, as described by Rudolf Steiner. The so called objective, mental, calculated science, is questioned and the phenomenological, subjective free examination is put ahead. It is a book full of innovative ideas, original thoughts and new theorems. This book also gives a recipe to walk your way to an autonomous and free individual, called process of individuation by Carl Gustav Jung. Berne speaks of the Integrated Adult and Rudolf Steiner calls it an Individuality. Further more, you will receive the key, to manifest your own reality in freedom.
“Quantum Transactional Analysis and New Age” is a sequel to “Quantum Transactional Analysis and Spirituality”. You can see it as a deepening, an addition and a re-identifying. Concepts such as ‘script’ and ‘ego states’ are covered in an innovative way. They are compared with – in the world of management – more familiar concepts such as ‘DISC’ and ‘Social Styles’. The difference between working on behaviour (effect), and working on script (cause) is further explored. It explains how in the process of script transformation, ego states evolve to the integrated Adult. The book is about the transformation of the old thinking to quantum thinking, which is inherent to the New Age. The characteristics of the old world and the new world are compared (see blog). The New Age culture grows slowly and steadily from its foundations, built by the ancestors of the New Age People in previous centuries. The old world, which has a self-destructive script, is crumbling rapidly. In this book you can read how New Age People, which manifest themselves as freethinkers practicing phenomenological free inquiry, can contribute to building the New World, which is characterized by a collective script in which freedom, autonomy and maturity, relying on morality, empathy and emotional intelligence triumphs.
In “Quantum Transactional Analysis and the Ancient Ages,” the moral philosopher puts on the glasses of the quantum transactional analyst and reports. She is looking for how humanity grows collectively from the symbiotic stage through separation and integration into individuation and socialization. Symbiotic peoples opt for a strict, rewarding and punishing God. They live under the yoke of a harsh despot. And philosophers suppose in their political philosophies that an omnipotent monarch should guide them. With the Enlightenment and the associated collective integration phase, rational and empirical philosophers replace the God-Judge by a neutral architect and builder of the universe. Democracies begin to grow, along with industrialization and accumulation of capital. Many democracies in a capitalist system, however, have a culture of greed, fed by fear and poverty consciousness. Poverty is therefore in sight. The onset of the next given phase is called individuation and the New Age People begin to express their higher awareness and better functioning moral compass through new forms of living together, living-schools, alternative medicine, psychotherapy, ecological building, organic food and various art forms. How long will it take before the society, based on the Christian principle rises from the ruins of the rapidly crumbling old times?
In “Quantum Transactional Analysis and Shadow Management”, Evil is examined in all its facets. Is Evil in us or outside of us (l’enfer c’est l’autre)? Is Evil radical or banal? What is the function of Evil and how do we deal with it? Is Evil in the conspiracies and mass manipulations of the World Management Team. Are the corrupt politicians responsible for the bad world we live in? Are we the helpless victims? What does Carl Gustav Jung say about the Shadow? And Rudolf Steiner about The Little Guardian On The Threshold? What are the shadow facets of the drivers in T.A. and how can you transform them into the Integrated Adult? How does Evil manifest itself in the fantasy of great authors who play in and work with 4D? And how are the heroes in these stories dealing with it? What does your shadow archetype look like? And your hero archetype? What can each of us do? How can Evil have a function in healing? Is transformation possible without Evil? The rise and fall of Hitler ‘s Third Empire, Steiner ‘s Anti-Hierarchies, and so much more is discussed in this book. Enjoy!
“Quantum Transactional Analysis and the Mystery of the grail” is about a discovery journey in search of the Holy Grail. We leave at the Red Knight. From there we arrive at the Celtic bards, Irish Christianity and the German gods. The teachings of Zarathustra and those of Mani take us through history to the Cathars of Occitan. We take part in an initiation in the caves of Ussat-Ornolac. We take a closer look at gnosis and esoteric Christianity with the gospel of St. John. With Rudolf Steiner, we study the teachings of the Rosecrusians and unveil their secrets. We are introduced to the Templars. And so we come closer to revealing the mystery of the grail. It is about initiates, hierophants and great masters, the forerunners in the evolution of humankind. They are the Merlins who can conjure, the Gandalfs with their flashy staff and the ladies of the lake, who travel through dimensions.
“Quantum Transactional Analysis & the “Philosophy of Freedom” is about a way to more freedom, autonomy, and maturity (individuation), but at a much higher level. We start with a study about the anthroposophical and therefore Western view of karma and incarnation. The question is, how free are we within the karmic necessity? Then we work through Steiner’s first major book, the “Philosophy of Freedom”. In it he explains his knowledge theory and he proves that we are free. Because Steiner is said to have been Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas in previous lives, we are re-examining the knowledge theories of these philosophers. We then investigate the anthroposophical vision of the future. This is not a very bright one. There are many challenges. However, if we follow the prescribed initiation path, we can learn to intervene in an appropriate way. This modern western initiation is placed alongside the ancient Eastern roads to nirvana or enlightenment, the tantric and the Buddhist one.
In “Quantum Transactional Analysis & Philosophizing about Thinking, Freethinking and Freedom” I observe my own thinking. I know that I do not (yet) master living thinking and I look at how I am (passively) thought and how far my intellect reaches. In studying various frames of reference from philosophy, psychology and science, I watch whether I enjoy it or not and whether my heart and soul participate. The book stops, where I can no longer grasp things. In the last chapter you will find, just like in the previous book, a reflection on education in Flanders, based on my own experience.
