People say the soul,
on hearing the song of creation,
entered the body;
but in reality
the soul itself was the song.
|‘The moment a dragon is slain’ Puppet Show (Paris 1963)|
You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.
— Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.4.5
|"Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour." |
Rudolf Steiner to the Esoteric Youth Group:
When earlier, in ancient times, there sounded forth to human beings out of stone and spring, out of tree and flower, the exhortation 'O human being, know yourself,' the answer was then the sacred OM. The human being went into the sacred stillness to receive the Word of the gods. However, now that the world has entered the age in which human deeds are expected in the cosmos, when human beings are called to their own activity, this sacred OM is no longer the answer that should resound. What should now sound forth to the spirits that want to become the spirits of your souls is the answer:
Yes, I am here for your cosmic deeds.
