Not one will act out the stubborn independence of the wayward, impulsive child who drops the hand that is leading him and chooses to stumble on alone and walk in his own ways. Blessed results would appear as the fruit of such a course. Here are strong motives which should constrain us to love one another with a pure heart, fervently.
Christ is our example. He went about doing good. He lived to bless others. Love beautified and ennobled all His actions. We are not commanded to do to ourselves what we wish others to do unto us; we are to do unto others what we wish them to do to us under like circumstances.
Aphrodisia and the Flesh
The measure we mete is always measured to us again The love of influence and the desire for the esteem of others may produce a well-ordered life and frequently a blameless conversation. Self-respect may lead us to avoid the appearance of evil. A selfish heart may perform generous actions, acknowledge the present truth, and express humility and affection in an outward manner, yet the motives may be deceptive and impure; the actions that flow from such a heart may be destitute of the savor of life and the fruits of true holiness, being destitute of the principles of pure love.
Love should be cherished and cultivated, for its influence is divine. Love Makes Concessions —Christ's love is deep and earnest, flowing like an irrepressible stream to all who will accept it. There is no selfishness in His love.
If this heaven-born love is an abiding principle in the heart, it will make itself known, not only to those we hold most dear in sacred relationship but to all with whom we come in contact. It will lead us to bestow little acts of attention, to make concessions, to perform deeds of kindness, to speak tender, true, encouraging words. It will lead us to sympathize with those whose hearts hunger for sympathy. The S. Bible Commentary Love Governs the Motives and Actions —The most careful attention to the outward proprieties of life is not sufficient to shut out all fretfulness, harsh judgment, and unbecoming speech.
True refinement will never be revealed so long as self is considered as the supreme object. Love must dwell in the heart. A thoroughgoing Christian draws his motives of action from his deep heart-love for his Master. Up through the roots of his affection for Christ springs an unselfish interest in his brethren. Love imparts to its possessor grace, propriety, and comeliness of deportment.
It illuminates the countenance and subdues the voice; it refines and elevates the entire being. Christlike love places the most favorable construction on the motives and acts of others. It does not needlessly expose their faults; it does not listen eagerly to unfavorable reports, but seeks rather to bring to mind the good qualities of others. When the heavenly principle of eternal love fills the heart, it will flow out to others This love cherished in the soul sweetens the entire life and sheds a refining influence on all around. Possessing it, we cannot but be happy, let fortune smile or frown.
If we love God with all the heart, we must love His children also. This love is the Spirit of God. It is the heavenly adorning that gives true nobility and dignity to the soul and assimilates our lives to that of the Master. No matter how many good qualities we may have, however honorable and refined we may consider ourselves, if the soul is not baptized with the heavenly grace of love to God and one another, we are deficient in true goodness and unfit for heaven, where all is love and unity.
True Love Is Spiritual —Love, lifted out of the realm of passion and impulse, becomes spiritualized and is revealed in words and acts. A Christian must have a sanctified tenderness and love, in which there is no impatience or fretfulness; the rude, harsh manners must be softened by the grace of Christ. Love Lives on Action —Love cannot live without action, and every act increases, strengthens, and extends it. Open Preview See a Problem? Details if other :.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. Preview — Transforming the Soul by Rudolf Steiner. Transforming the Soul: Vol. In a key series of lectures on personal development, Rudolf Steiner explains that the central mission of spiritual science is to enable people to ascend, in full consciousness, to knowledge of spiritual realities. But, given that the means to achieve spiritual perception are now widely available, there is the danger that some individuals will gain access to the spiritual world whilst harboring impure motives.
This can lead to a distorted understanding and vision of that world. Steiner's emphasis, therefore, is on the preparatory steps-- the metamorphosis and purification of the human soul--required for achieving true spiritual enlightenment. Life itself teaches and prepares us for progress, and Anthroposophy explains and brings this to consciousness. In some of his most lucid lectures, Steiner describes the missions of anger, truth and reverence, the significance of human character, the meaning of asceticism and illness, and the phenomenon of egoism.

My favorite Steiner so far, first lecture notwithstanding and that really long Goethe commentary on the Prometheus myth. Some really fascinating distinctions here made between spiritual science and other spiritual paths. Also, some tender and inspiring comments about facing suffering.
A very compelling discussion of asceticism and of the differences between Christianity and Buddhism. He spoke here in a way that seemed to me quite different from his other lectures on similar subjects. For some My favorite Steiner so far, first lecture notwithstanding and that really long Goethe commentary on the Prometheus myth. For some reason, I found these lectures much less abstract than his usual manner, though I would be hard-pressed to identify the reason why.
The language is very similar. The Kant and Schopenhauer references are numerous. The soul's sheaths come up regularly. If I had to give a justification, I might cite personal interest: I'm eager to learn what avenues of growth are open to anthroposophists that other spiritual seekers would remain generally unaware of. I got some answers here.

The soul has three members in Rudolf Steiner's system: the lowest is the sentient soul, the bearer of our passions and desires; the next highest is the intellectual soul, what lets us be rational; and the highest is the consciousness soul, where the I grasps itself.
Each of these members is transformed by the I in its own way. The sentient soul - the bearer of our passions, whims, and lusts - is transformed through anger.

While anger bears the mark of egoism, it is only by going through the temptation to egoism that we can overcome it. If you are never angry or if you suppress anger, you are not selfless.
