December 28-29 – Taurus
Consciously purify the body of thought.
Discipline thinking. Concentrating on the positive. Converting the black doves of thought into white doves, because our thinking is, until it is not consciously conducted with discipline, like a dovecote! Keep this dovecote closed against foreign, negative thoughts.
Mystery: The purification of the temple by Jesus Christ.
Rudolf Steiner’s indications for the Holy Nights given to Herbert Hahn

- Heilige Nacht
28./29. – Stier
Bewusst den Gedankenkörper reinigen. Gedankenzucht. Konzentration auf Positives. Umwandeln der schwarzen Gedankentauben in weiße, denn unser Denken gleicht, solange es nicht bewusst in Zucht genommen wird, einem Taubenschlag! Diesen Taubenschlag auch schließen vor fremden, negativen Gedanken.
Mysterium: Die Tempelreinigung durch Jesus-Christus.
Fifth Contemplation by Kristina Kaine
We are the temple of Christ. Of all the beings in this Cosmos, we are worthy to be the temple of Christ. The only way we can know him is through our thinking. The only way we can do this is if we understand what thinking actually is. Human beings have only been thinking since about 600BC. Before that we were clairvoyant. We were unconsciously informed by the spiritual worlds.
This ancient clairvoyance is still available to us now, but we must resist it. Through consciously thinking we must come to the new clairvoyance. It is our task to recognise the old black doves and transform them into new and pure white doves. To reach this new clairvoyance we must also resist the pull of modern thinking with its logical concepts dependent on our body and the activity of our nervous system.
Thinking has made a journey from ancient clairvoyance to conceptual thinking, and now we must free it from the nervous system so that it becomes the spiritual capacity of Imagination. The symbol of Spiritual Imagination is the dove. When our I Am is infused with the Cosmic Christ, we have the ability to perceive what lies behind the sense world and see there the outer forms of spirit. This can be confusing and we need a strong connection with our I Am to guide us. We spiritualise our senses by silencing our intellect and we weave mental images in the ether which take on a life of their own. In this way we can know truth if we remain open to it, and if we remain conscious. 2013
