Universal law #1-"Knowledge due a seeker cannot be withheld."
#2-"Knowledge may not be imparted to anyone not qualified to receive it."
#3-"Regulate each of your words and actions so that you do not interfere

Steiner poses a question at the end of the chapter, "How can we attain such knowledge (of our experiences before birth and after death)?"
Any insights, dreams from your holy nights' meditations so far?
I do believe he is about to give us some ideas:)
Blessings on your Holy Nights,
