Anthroposophy : Heart-Centered Thinking : The redemption of thinking through compassionate love
Rudolf Steiner: "In the saying that Christ trod on and crushed the head of the serpent (70) we find a profound expression of esotericism. The serpent's head is mere wisdom; this must be overcome. True wisdom lies in the heart; this is why the serpent's head must be trodden underfoot. In the Hercules-Saga (71) the same truth has already been expressed. He kills the Lernaean Hydra, whose head always grows anew. Mere Manas will always come again. Hercules must keep the blood at a distance (Kama), then the Hydra will be conquered. Blood came into the Earth with the Mars-Wisdom (Kama-Manas)."
