In Prague around 1900, an alchemical transformation took place in the city of Rudolf II,
who gave birth in his laboratory on the Hradschin Gold.
Gustav Meyring was there, Franz Kafka, Rudolf Steiner .....
In this mystical environment Rainer Maria Rilke was born on December 4, 1875,
characterized by a spiritual departure, an all-embracing search.
Rilke was one of 10 people in 1891 founded theosophical Prague lodge "Zum blaue Stern".
The group, chaired by Karel Weinfurter, met regularly in a Prague café or the apartment of the writer Gustav Meyrink.
Through magical experiments, the group attempted to reach a higher state of consciousness.
On 20.9.1899 he wrote:
"I live my life in growing rings I live my life in growing rings, that pull over things.
Maybe I will not do the last one, but I want to try it.
I circle around God, around the ancient tower, and I circle for millennia;
and I do not know yet: I'm a hawk, a storm or a great song. "
Rilke did not seek the divine in distant transcendent skies,
but here in the material world, in magic, in nature and in the aura of everyday life,
which he knew how to describe in an inimitable language.
The angels, according to the poet, are often superior to us,
but they can not see the divine in the earthly.
