It is as it should be, and I will that it be so.

The Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy
"On the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience."  —Luke 8:15

Rudolf Steiner: "Wherever we are gathered together we are gathered in the name of the search for wisdom and the search for love."
Rudolf Steiner:  "If anyone is to work for the community, he must perceive and feel the value, the nature and importance, of this community. He can do this only when the community is quite different from a more or less indefinite sum of individual human beings. It must be informed by an actual spirit, in which each single one has their part. It must be such that each one says 'It is as it should be, and I will that it be so.' The community must have a spiritual mission, and each individual must have the will to contribute toward the fulfilling of this mission."

"Something must come about anew that resembles the working of the old Mysteries, something that is described as an offering and devotion of the whole human being, an opening out of the whole human being within his or her task.... the impulse to give one's whole humanity as an offering to the work that you have recognized as being holy."  —Rudolf Steiner

And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.  —Luke 9:23-24
