Difficulty Reading POF?
Perhaps a technique used in studying the Zohar will work for POF? Kabbalah began thousands of years ago as a mystical form of Judaism. Now, revamped, rich, popularized, it attracts millions of devotees with a mix of new age paraphernalia and ancient texts. The Zohar, written in Aramaic,  is a  book of Kabbalistic teachings and wisdom. If your Aramaic is rusty, it is suggested that by simply running your finger along the text, like a scanner at a supermarket counter, you will receive a beneficial effect.

Now I understand
Jeff's "felt-sense" posts.

If scanning with your fingers or perhaps placing the book under your pillow while sleeping aren’t for you, then try reading Steiner’s three books written before POF (especially Truth and Knowledge). They serve as an introduction and often expand on some of the concepts briefly mentioned in POF. 

1883 Goethe the Scientist

1886 The Theory of Knowledge Implicit in Goethe's World Conception

1894 The Philosophy of Freedom
