We must eradicate from the Soul
All fear and terror of what comes towards us
From out of the future,
And we must acquire serenity
In all feelings and sensations about the future.
We must look forward
With complete equanimity to everything that may come,
And we must think only that whatever comes
Is given to us by a world directive full of wisdom.
It is part of what we must learn in this age:
Namely to live out of pure trust
Without any security in existence,
Trust in the ever-present help of the Spiritual World.
Truly, nothing else will do
If our courage is not to fail us.
And we must seek this awakening within ourselves
Every morning and every evening.
-- Rudolf Steiner
