Rudolf Steiner, March 22, 1909:
"'The Masters of Wisdom and of the Harmony of Feelings' are united in the great Guiding Lodge of mankind. And as once the 'tongues of fire' hovered down as a living symbol upon the company of the apostles, so does the Holy Spirit announced by Christ Himself reign as the Light over the Lodge of the Twelve. The Thirteenth is the Leader of the Lodge of the Twelve. The Holy Spirit is the mighty Teacher of those we name 'the Masters of Wisdom and of the Harmony of Feelings.' It is through them that his voice and his wisdom flow down to mankind in this or that stream upon the Earth."
"Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world."
I found myself in a space with twelve sages in a circle, all focused on an endless column of living white light that was in the middle of the circle. One of the sages sent a ray of consciousness to me: "What do you want to know?" Immediately I responded: "How can I help?"
