Karma Chameleon: Isis Conceiving Horus at the Cosmic Midnight Hour

Ex Deo Nascimur        In Christo Morimur        Per Spiritum Sanctum Reviviscimus
"At the still point, there the dance is."  — T. S. Eliot

"Die and Become"
The words inscribed on the Holy Grail

from Secrets of the Threshold. Lecture 8 of 8
Rudolf Steiner, Munich, August 31, 1913:

And now the time has come when everything one can remember disappears. It returns, but in an altered manner. Everything lost is brought back to us again. In the way it gathers together, it shows — as a consequence of what has departed — what it should become: A befitting new life must be constructed according to karma on the foundation of the old Earth life. Thus there thrusts in from infinity toward a central point what must return to our consciousness from oblivion and be given back to us; with this we can become carpenters of a new life shaped by karma. In this sense an experiencing of nothing but oneself within the true ego, which is a kind of forgetting, takes place at the middle point between death and a new birth.
Today most human souls are still so little prepared for this forgetting that they experience it in a sort of spiritual soul-sleep. Those who are ready for it, however, experience just at this moment of forgetting, which is the transition from the preceding Earth life to the preparation of the coming one, what is called the Cosmic Midnight in The Soul's Awakening. The scene of the Cosmic Midnight, in which one can enter deeply into the necessities of existence, is indeed connected with the most profound mysteries of human existence. We can say that the mystery of the human being, his true nature in which he lives between death and a new birth, is something the ordinary consciousness can never discover, although it discloses itself to the clairvoyant soul.
