Words to live by

barbed, originally uploaded by Justin Davis Davanzo.

We must eradicate from our soul all fear and terror
of what comes toward humanity out of the future.

We must acquire serenity in all feelings and sensations
about the future.

We must look forward with absolute equanimity
to everything that may come.

And we must think only that whatever comes
is given to us by a world direction full of wisdom.

It is part of what we must learn in this age,
namely to live out of pure trust,
without any security in existence,
thrust in the ever-present help of the spirit world.

Truly nothing else will do
if our courage is not to fail us.

Let us discipline our will,
and let us seek the awakening from within ourselves
every morning
and every evening.

-Rudolf Steiner
