Rudolph Steiner gave much to the world, and this quote of his may well express succinctly the basis and mechanism of his prodigious contributions. Certainly, it showcases his sensitivity to, perception and cognitive understanding of, the subtle yet powerful energies that underlie and comprise Nature, ourselves, and our World.
“Reverence awakens in the soul a sympathetic power
through which we attract qualities in the beings around us,
which would otherwise remain concealed.”
— Rudolf Steiner
