A Verse For Our Times


We must eradicate from the soul 

all fear and terror 

of what comes towards us from the future;

We must look forward 

with absolute equanimity to whatever comes, 

and we must think only 

that whatever comes is given us 

by a world direction full of wisdom.

It is part of what we must learn during this age, 

namely to act out of pure trust 

in the ever present help of the spiritual world; 

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

Therefore let us discipline our will, 

and let us seek the awakening from within ourselves, 

every morning and every evening. 


Rudolf Steiner
