There is a version of the Lord’s Prayer by Rudolf Steiner which begins, “Our Father, who art in heaven, heaven is unlimited. It is within ourselves, as well as without.” This is the essence of my philosophy. Heaven, or spirit, is not only a world outside of us, but permeates, as well, the center of man. And maintaining an open channel between this center in man and a world which he can tap for higher development is for me a need. I must bring this outside wisdom into its counterpart in the inner man from which it can, in turn, flow outward, through my conscious effort, into life with my fellow man.
