"Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord" — Hebrews 12:14
Rudolf Steiner: "The ancients gave the name 'tincture' to what was revealed when the clairvoyant felt the whole world bathed in a violet light and himself living in a violet cloud in this light, and felt at one with himself. Clairvoyants felt this tincture as their own, as connected to their organism. They felt it as their very own astrum.... they strove not to take in anything from the outside and to live only in themselves. They became unreceptive in order not to have to let in anything from the outside."
