Ms. Corinne Heline was specializing in Biblical interpretation, mysticism, and cosmology.
Once one becomes accustomed to references such as “those who have come to earth as emissaries from the glorious Music Temple on High,” it really is an interesting read. Meistersinger, for example, is a study of the tests and initiations that the soul must endure to attain mastery. Lohengrin is an allegory of “The Degree of Conscious Invisible Helpership,” an intermediate level of conciousness necessary to endure on the greater journey. The Ring is the Cosmic Evolution itself, a sequence of The Water Path (Rheingold), The Air Path (Walküre), The Earth Path (Siegfried) and The Fire Path (Götterdämmerung). Who knew?
Wagner’s magnificent operas are attuned to the rhythms of the coming Air Age and play directly upon the inner or finer vehicles of man, awakening and stimulating certain latent centers which pioneers of the New Aquarian Age are even now in process of developing. And understanding of Wagner’s operas should form, therefore, a part of the equipment of every serious student of the Mysteries since each and all of them mark definite steps in esoteric development.
