The Connection of the Luciferic and Ahrimanic Impulses with the Christ-Jahve Impulse. Lecture 1 of 6.
Rudolf Steiner, Dornach, Switzerland, October 4, 1918:
Today and in the next few days I should like to draw from our recent studies some conclusions about human life itself. I will first mention certain thoughts which are brought against Anthroposophy from outside, and will then show how with regard to these ideas we should lay hold of and emphasize certain conceptions.
Thus we are able to say that if man were to follow in his evolution only his original nature and the good spiritual forces in the world, he would be a very different being from what he now is, when he pursues this age-old development in conjunction with the Luciferic and the Ahrimanic forces working upon him in time.
