The Second Coming of Christ

"And does not Rudolf Steiner, in speaking of the new advent, place before us the task of 'participating with our whole soul in this event' in order that we may become 'true men'? For in this, as in so much else, Rudolf Steiner and Novalis are completely one: Rudolf Steiner, who speaks to us of 'the growing together of the experience of being in and with Christ and the experience of real and true humanity' and indicates that '"Christ gives me my humanity" must be the fundamental feeling which wells up in the soul and pervades it'; and Novalis, who also testifies to this out of his personal spiritual experience:

Through Him am I a man become;
My destiny transfigured shines through Him . . ."

-- Sergei Prokofieff, Eternal Individuality: Towards a Karmic Biography of Novalis, p. 44
