The disciples of a spiritul teaching are aware that within them there is something beautiful and great that longs to express itself, and they seek the help of beings of light in the invisible world. Their wish flows from them as a subtle fluid, and the entities that pick this up are always ready to respond to their request.
But it is one thing to have a spiritual ideal and quite another to keep it firmly in your soul. When you have succeeded in elevating your inner state it is difficult to stay on the high ground. But you have to cling on, because it is up there that you will find pure air, light and freedom.
In our solar system, it is the sun that represents the summit, the spirit. In order to reach their inner summit and remain there, disciples of spiritual science must make daily efforts to hoist themselves up to the sun. Then when they come back to face whatever events may occur, a part of them will remain up above, in the sun, inspiring all their decisions.
