Life after death as shown in The Souls' Awakening. Most souls sleep through the Cosmic Midnight or Saturn time; those who are prepared stay awake. The soul awakens in different ways, but perfect calm is necessary. The mood of expectation.
Clairvoyant consciousness between the sensible and super-sensible worlds. The working of Ahriman and Lucifer. What is evil? The dangers in crossing the threshold.
The elemental world; sleeping and waking, sympathy and antipathy. Ahriman and Lucifer in the elemental world.
Ascent of the soul from the elemental to the spiritual world. Reading the Cosmic Script in the realm of the spirit. The Cosmic Word.
The importance of the law of number and measure. The triad in everything. Felicia Balde's story of the castle-fortress. Solitary thinking, writing and the spoken word. Meditation.
Ahriman and Lucifer in the realm of art. The meeting of the soul crossing the threshold with the other self; the spirit-conversation, as the soul develops spiritual consciousness, with living thought-beings.
The maturing of Johannes Thomasius during the four Mystery Dramas; his relation to the Double, the Spirit of his Youth, and the Other Philia. Strader at the abyss.
Lucifer and Ahriman in the past and present. The Guardian of the Threshold, our true self. Self-knowledge. The necessity for a feeling of responsibility.
