There is a great difference between the meaning of "know yourself" for the ancient mystery centers and what it means to most people today. Such self-knowledge used to be achieved only after death, but today it must be achieved during one's life. To reach higher stages of development after death, one must become fully human during earthly life. This has been true only since the Christ Event, which is at the center of human evolution. Today, we must experience the Christ within ourselves as light, life, and love. By adopting a correct path of knowledge, we become citizens of the universe, rather than "hermits" isolated on earth. Here, the Austrian philosopher and modern spiritual master Rudolf Steiner shows us a way to approach self-knowledge in a way that is appropriate for people today.
