      In the Anthroposophical Society it is not sufficiently understood that
      anthroposophy is not some bleak theory, but is meant to be true life.
      True life, that is its essence; and when it is made into a bleak theory
      it is often not a better theory than others, but a worse one. But it is
      transformed into a theory when it is made into one, when it is killed.
      It is not sufficiently understood that anthroposophy is not merely a
      different worldview than others, but that it must also be assimilated
      differently. One recognizes and experiences its essence by this
      different way of assimilating it.
      The Goetheanum should be recognized as the necessary center of
      anthroposophical activity; but one must not forget that in the branches
      the anthroposophical material which has been elaborated here should also
      be utilized. What has been elaborated at the Goetheanum can be acquired
      gradually by the whole Anthroposophical Society in a completely vital
      sense, if as many branch members as possible come to the Goetheanum and
      participate in its living activity. It must all, however, be done
      introspectively; merely "communicating" the contents every week
      is not acceptable. The Executive Committee at the Goetheanum will need
      time and understanding from the members. Then we will be able to carry
      out the intentions of the Christmas Conference.
