Holy Night 4 : 27-28 December Aries

This is a new translation using Google to translate from the original German and adjusted by Laura Zanutto and slightly tweaked by Kristina Kaine 2015

Consciously purify the Astral Body: antipathy and sympathy are converted into universal love. Passions and desires keep silent. The power of Christ penetrates with his light and his strength what is Luciferic in us.

Mystery: The work on ourselves serves the best interests of the whole. The Archangel Uriel holds up a mirror in which we see ourselves as we are. Rudolph Steiner’s indications to Herbert Hahn

Fourth Contemplation: Kristina Kaine

How often do we think about the impact of our personal development on the universe? How could a seemingly insignificant human being such as ourselves effect this enormous universe? This idea is expressed in the notion of the “Butterfly Effect.”

While we can’t know for sure if the flap of one butterfly’s wing on one side of the world causes a storm on the other side of the world, the negativity of many human beings in a room is palpable. If this is the case, imagine the effect on another person of our antipathy towards them. Antipathy is usually accompanied by criticism and if we freely engage in this behaviour we are a long way from purifying our astral body – even if we think the other person deserves it.

When we unconsciously exercise our sympathy and antipathy we invite Lucifer into our consciousness. Lucifer always degrades our experiences and causes us to focus on ourselves. Lucifer causes selfishness in our astral body, lying in our etheric body, and illness in our physical body. If we become aware of the ways in which we like one thing and dislike another, and try to rise above these instincts, Lucifer’s activity will be exposed.

Lucifer has a rightful place within us, but only as a catalyst for change in our consciousness. He is not there to use our consciousness as a playing field. As long as we do not resist him, and unknowingly play along with his often mischievous ideas, our astral will be murky. When we start to observe his activity it is a signal to the power of Christ to become active within us like the sun shining through the clouds. If enough people do this it will affect the universe.
