Hi, I’m doing a project on Carcinosin for my second year and I have a reference from Frans Vermeulens Prisma for Carsinosin – under the Mind Sympathetic section that I want to quote. The reference is at the bottom – the bit in italics. The quote seems to be attributed to:


 [2] Steiner, The essence of Carcinosinum; HL 3/98


It’s a great quote that I want to use, but I can’t find this reference anywhere on the internet. I’m wondering who this Steiner (lady?) is and what journal HL is – and if anyone knows where I can find this reference. 


Many thanks!


The quote is here:

• “What profited it a man if he gains the world and loses his soul? ‘Does the body manifest something [in the form of cancer] which the person himself [we could say ‘the rest of the person’] does not dare to express?’ Her answer should not surprise us: ‘The illness of the body is the attempt of the soul to heal itself’. And she says: ‘Someone who becomes ill with cancer has not been living his own life but that of someone else, and they have given up hope of ever living their own life’ – and – ‘And thus the craving for a true life, this real longing has moved inward, under the shadow of the body, has curled into a ball under the enormous pressure [repression?] and it grows and develops and is called an evil. … The tumour is made up of un-lived vital energy, un-lived because to live it would have been bad’. … [She] sees the cancer cells as the more faithful and truer representatives of the individual than the rest of the being which, for understandable reasons, has so completely betrayed his soul. … A cancer patient needs to see that in order to heal himself it is not his physical survival he needs to focus on, but rather the true substance of his life, his soul, his inner harmony which constitutes his potential health. He needs to become sensitive to his own individual needs and priorities and pleasures, he needs to begin to respect them, to give expression to these needs, even in the face of the collective judgement that by doing so he is being bad. It is the faith in higher ‘authority’ or in a higher order which is beyond the understanding and judgement of humans but which implicitly gives the cancer patient permission to respect and give expression to his true nature which provides hope for true life and, ‘as an added bonus’ the healing of the cancer patient. … I have a very similar view to Wiedemann’s: Cancer cells to me represent the real ‘me’ in a person when the rest of the organism has betrayed his soul. Cancer cells are the organism’s last stand in its effort to give expression to the soul, to give substance to life. Why should we be prejudiced against cells because they are undifferentiated, ‘primitive’ and overly creative? After all, aren’t we in awe of our similarly primitive and undifferentiated and creative reproductive cells? … Cancer cells behave ‘just like human beings who had suffered great neglect and who had learned to fend for themselves in a reckless way’. They lack consideration and a sense of proportion; they push in all directions to increase their space, only motivated by a quest for bigger, more, and faster; and, akin to self-centred humans, they live essentially in unrelated isolation, a life with no real substance. And consequently … it is easier to label this [cancer] as ‘bad’ and to attempt to eradicate it by any means available. … The soul’s deepest need is for self-expression – in spite of contrary conscious wishes, commitment to self-discipline or a need to be approved of in the form of a being which is not ‘me’. I see Carcinosinum as the true ‘insider’ when the rest of the ‘normal’ organism, mind and body, have abandoned the painful quest for individuality and personal growth, for the sake of other and meaningless and superficial but deeply seated perverse priorities. … Man betrays his soul because it is less painful or less frightening to do so than to establish and manifest his own convictions at the risk of offending those whose love or protection he depends on.”2
