Example text

It is quite possible to fulfill our tasks as human beings without understanding anything about botany, zoology, mathematics or other sciences, but it is not possible to be “human” in the fullest sense of the word without coming closer in some way to the essential nature and destiny of the human being as revealed through knowledge of the supersensible world. As human beings we call the highest thing we can look up to “the Divine,” and we must imagine that our highest aim and calling have something to do with this divine element.

However, those capable of observing the supersensible world should speak not only to spiritual researchers but to everyone, since what they have to tell concerns each one of us. In fact, they know that without some knowledge of these things, no one can be human in the true sense of the word. They speak to all of us, knowing that what they have to say will be met with varying degrees of understanding, but also knowing that since a feeling for the truth and the ability to understand it are present in every human being, even those who are still far from being able to conduct spiritual research on their own may be able to respond with understanding.

When we look up at the starry sky, the soul’s experience of delight belongs to us, but the eternal laws of the stars, which we may grasp in thought and in spirit, do not belong to us. They belong to the stars. Thus as human beings we are citizens of three worlds. In body, we both belong to and perceive the outer world; in soul, we build up our own inner world; and in spirit, a third world that is higher than both of the others reveals itself to us. [7] [8] 1chap Black 26 26 [9] THEOSOPHY It should be apparent that, because of the fundamental differences between these three worlds, we will achieve a clear understanding of them and of our own part in them only by applying three different modes of observation.
