The Goal of Yoga: Union with the Risen Body of Christ
Rudolf Steiner: "Just as man, through his place in the stream of physical evolution, inherits the physical body in which the destruction of the Phantom, the Force-Bearer, is gradually taking place, so from the pure Phantom that rose out of the grave he can inherit what he has lost. He can inherit it, he can clothe himself with it, as he clothed himself with the first Adam; he can become one with it. Thereby he can go through a development by means of which he can climb upwards again, even as before the Mystery of Golgotha he had descended in evolution. In other words, that which had been taken from him through the Luciferic influence can be given back to him through its presence as the Risen Body of Christ."
