Anthroposophy: The Fire of Wonder

Rudolf Steiner:  "Someone may say: '...when I picture all this, I have one outstanding impression: that everything is indescribably beautiful in the process of world evolution!' We ourselves can have the same impression of the grandeur and sublimity of it all, and this can kindle the fire of wonder in our souls at what has come to pass in the world. The great truths can bestow upon us no greater boon than this. The lesser truths will satisfy our longing for knowledge; the great truths will warm our very souls, and we shall say that there is supreme beauty in what is thus made manifest through the happenings of world existence. If we feel this beauty and splendor, any purely theoretical understanding will be transcended."
