|"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."|
Rudolf Steiner: "When a cosmos begins to develop — in the first, second, and third rounds — it is the same as when a child develops in the first three years of life. Thereby is shown the path, the way, so to speak, that it will take in life. Only then does its actual task in the cosmos come along; we call it the truth of the cosmos. The truth has been revealed for our present Earth; the three preceding rounds of its developmental path represent the way. The truth is the external arrangement of this path in our present evolution of the Earth. The third part of evolution, the life, we will go through when we will have increasingly permeated our soul with the truth. We will learn to recognize and know the truth; the truth will become our life; then we will no longer need to struggle for the truth. This struggle is still necessary in order to lead us to a moral and good life. This truth will penetrate us in the future; it will become our lifeblood. For this reason, the one who is a representative of the wisdom streaming through the cosmos has taken these three concepts into his consciousness and expressed them in the words "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
