The Festivals and Their Meaning IV:
The Michael Meditation
28 September 1924, Dornach
This meditation is from Rudolf Steiner's last lecture: The Individuality of Elias, John, Raphael, Novalis.
Springing from Powers of the Sun,
Radiant Spirit-powers, blessing all Worlds!
For Michael's garment of rays
Ye are predestined by Thought Divine.
He, the Christ-messenger, revealeth in you —
Bearing mankind aloft — the sacred Will of Worlds.
Ye, the radiant Beings of Æther-Worlds,
Bear the Christ-Word to Man.
Thus shall the Herald of Christ appear
To the thirstily waiting souls,
To whom your Word of Light shines forth
In cosmic age of Spirit-Man.
Ye, the disciples of Spirit-Knowledge,
Take Michael's Wisdom-beckoning,
Take the Word of Love of the Will of Worlds
Into your souls' aspiring, actively!
