"... the soul could, in thinking, lay hold of its own nature in the self-conscious ego, and if it could arrive, through a spiritual experience, at inner activities of the self with which it could see itself as being grounded in its own entity."
Steiner, Rudolf (2009-08-01). The Riddles of Philosophy (p. 420). SteinerBooks, Collected Works 18. Kindle Edition.
Imagine showing up in every moment. Imagine being self-aware in every moment as opposed to the normality of becoming lost and carried along in each event or every contact with another. Showing up in every moment is being eternal. There are intuitives in the world who experience this inner light or eternal being. Life for the intuitives is ever light extinguishing and darkness illuminating.
