Know yourself, and live in peace with the world

"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."  — John 10:10

Rudolf Steiner:  "Above all, the way into the spiritual world does not draw near to us by our holding life at a distance, but by understanding that not an impoverishment of the outer life, but only an enrichment, can lead into the spiritual world. People would like so much to grow into the spiritual world through weakness and not through strength. One grows into the spiritual world by weakness if the outer world, the world of life, does not interest one, when one cannot fulfill the Goethean maxim “Know yourself, and live in peace with the world.”
