Not I, but Christ in me


"Thinking, in its own nature, certainly retains the real self or ego, but it does not contain self-consciousness.... self-consciousness arises only through the bodily organization.... however, this must not be taken to imply that self-consciousness, once it has arisen, remains dependent on the bodily organization. Once arisen, it is taken up into thinking and shares henceforth in thinking's spiritual being."  — Rudolf Steiner
