“The most important task of the bees, apart from the preparation of honey, wax and propolis, is the healing of the atmosphere! The honeybee, apis mellifera, alone, is able to perform this task. This is its first and foremost purpose.” —Ralf Roessner
Describing the genius of bees as the hive’s “group consciousness,” Ralf Roessner presents an extraordinary commentary based on first-hand spiritual-scientific research and experience. He studies the mission of the genius of bees, the hexagonal structure of “the crystalline heaven” within which the bees operate, and healing the world through their work. Roessner elucidates the relationships between the genius of bees, the elemental world, and the human being. He also speaks of his personal experiences with the organic “earth hive,” giving instructions on how they are made, and offers practical advice on tackling the Varroa mite.
In this unique and original work, the author “attempts to describe the secrets of creation as far as he has experienced these himself.” As he makes clear, “Many matters, which could be only vaguely perceived in former times can now be investigated in a spiritual-scientific manner. A secret is a secret only to the extent it escapes the individual human being’s powers of consciousness.” Anyone seeking deeper insights into the world of the honeybee will be enriched by the content of this book.
