An Esoteric Cosmology. Lecture 6 of 18.
Notes of an audience member of a lecture given by Rudolf Steiner in Paris on May 30, 1906:
The first thing to realize is that Yoga is not a sudden, convulsive event, but a process of gradual training, inner transformation. It does not consist, as is often supposed, in a series of external adjustments and ascetic practices. Everything must run its course in the depths of the soul.
“The Sun makes music as of old
Amid the sister-spheres of heaven.
On its predestined circle rolls
With roar of thunder.”
