Where to start? The Logik of the Heart starts with a simple consideration of the four questions and their qualities: what? how? why? who? or you can study the four-fold human being: physical body, etheric body, astral body, and ego as they were presented in Steiner's Theosophy, Chapter 1 Section 4. The four questions and 7 bodies and their interval qualities is a model that processes an idea from different perspectives. By thinking in these perspectives or levels, we begin to see the world in a different light.
O'Neil sometimes wrote about Steiner's work by using diagrams. Here is O'Neil's wonderful series of articles on Knowledge of Higher Worlds and Its Attainment.
I wrote several articles on how O'Neil's discovery of Steiner's method would change the way we study. The 2010 article presents George's take on Chapter 5 of Knowledge of Higher Worlds. George was fond of making study pictures of the content in order to help himself and students master the content before they move on to the meditations.
The 2011 article has to do with proper translating of the Philosophy of Freedom. It argues that each and every sentence within a paragraph has meaning to the form or overall composition.

George's work is fun and challenging! Portland, you should try it.
My first publication on the new thinking was a Study Guide For Rudolf Steiner's Heart Thinking. This PDF booklet was a culmination of my experience of Florin Lowndes' seminars and guided study group in Tuebingen Germany, NYC Branch, and Chicago. It has many necessary Steiner quotes justifying the new thinking. I originally printed little booklets so friends could have copies to pass around. In it, I cover the Preface and Second Appendix to the Philosophy of Freedom both of which contain together the 9 major thought-wave forms Steiner used in his books. It is a good place to start to get an overview.
This work book was sent around the Anthroposophical Society and it fell completely on deaf ears. I am often quite shocked by all the older members who studied with George but never got what he was doing, or what Steiner was doing for that matter.
