Anthroposophical Guidelines - 23
- 23. The human being enters into the spiritual world when he passes through the portal of death and feels all that he has acquired through the bodily senses and brain in impressions and mental content during earthly life fall away. In a comprehensive tableau he is then conscious of images of his life on earth which were retained in memory in the form of image-less thoughts; or what was unnoticed during earthly life, but which made an unconscious impression on the soul. These images grow faint after a few days until they disappear. When they are completely gone, he knows that he has also laid aside his etheric body, which he recognizes as the bearer of these images.
