Dr. Steiner once said: One of the greatest occult truths is this: The
Christ is seeing us.
Occultism or spirit-science if used rightly leads to an experience of
the Christ. We then know the greatest of mysteries, that by His death
and resurrection a force was unleashed which ever since has been
raising men up, against the forces of the Anti-Christ that seeks to
drag us down and destroy us. This force has worked especially in men
confessing belief in Him, therefore in Europe. Western Civilization
that enables us to be free is its creation. Now it works into every
The Higher Self which can speak through us does so by virtue of what
in early Christianity was named the Holy Spirit. It infused the
disciples in the upper room after Christ Jesus remained on earth for
40 days teaching them and preparing them for its coming, and then
ascended into the heavens,no longer materialized on earth. Magically,
the disciples found they could all be understood by men of every
language. That is the event we remember today, Pentacost, 50 days
What do we know as the mark of the Holy Spirit, and what are the
signs of its absence? Every man who speaks by virtue of it can be
understood across national boundaries, by people of any language,
through the good will of their hearts. Conversely, every ideology
that insists all others are wrong and requires one to learn only its
peculiar point of view is not motivated by it. Every man illumined by
the Holy Spirit is led to some meeting with the Christ who made it
possible for it to come to men, even an Eastern yogi like Yogananda
for whom Christianity was a foreign religion; whereas every
philosophy that must deny or despise the figure of the Christ and
which does not lead towards experiencing Him is not from the Holy
Spirit (Marxism, materialist science, Islam, too many New Age cults).
Every holy philosophy sees the good men do and seeks to add to that,
it will not tear down the products of mankind as evil capitalistic
enterprises or condemn all its technology as Satanic deceptions
planted to destroy the world, but seek how to strengthen the
institutions already existing and make them better and orient the
things men create to 'Michaelic' uses.
Every school of thought filled with fear and loathing is not from
that source, while every one which looks to the future with hope and
confidence in the wise guidance of the world is.
The philosophies of the Anti-Christ divide; those of the Holy Spirit
draw men together on a basis above blood ties or common habits,
culture or language, on a universal basis which all can understand
who will. Out of that meeting on a spiritual plane will come the
science and civilization of the future, while what opposes it is
destined for the dustbin of history along with the National
Socialism, fascism and so on that already have been deposited there.
