How do we give birth to Christ within us? How do we make the inner experience of Christ real? Rudolf Steiner explain one way this can happen. The important part of this is to be conscious of what we feel.
“if a man feels within him only the Divine spark, he may be driven to pride and arrogance. On the other hand, if he is not conscious of his connection with the Divine, he can be driven to despair.
We have seen how in fact the swaying between despair on the one hand, and pride and arrogance on the other, if at the same time a man fixes his gaze upon the events in Palestine, can lead on to the birth of the Christ-Event within him.” From Jesus to Christ Lecture 4 by Rudolf Steiner on 8th October, 1911
