Many people who study spiritual truth choose what to take and what to leave. Many choose to ignore Christ. This could be because Christ is too religious for them, or too difficult to understand. On the other hand, there are those who become mystically absorbed in Christ rather than experiencing him through their thinking.
“When we leave our body in sleep and at death, and we travel through the planetary spheres, until we reach the sphere of the sun where we encounter an image of an empty throne. If we haven’t created a relationship with Christ and the Mystery of Golgotha while incarnated on the earth, the throne remains empty and we are very, very lonely.” Rudolf Steiner 17.2.1913
