Anthroposophical Guidelines - 22
- 22. Self-observation establishes the beginning of spirit-observation. And it can establish the correct beginning because through correct reflection one cannot stop short at it, but must advance to further spiritual cosmic substance. Just as the human body atrophies when it does not receive physical nourishment, so does the correctly self-observing person feel his Self atrophying if he doesn't see how the forces of an active spiritual world outside him are working into it.
