After having briefly discussed unconscious spiritual threshold crossings in this recent thread, I came across this baffling conference description (the conference deals with Steiner’s mystery dramas):
Today, 113 years after the end of the Kali Yuga (the Dark Age), the spiritual worlds are accessible to all. Every human being today is crossing the threshold into the spiritual worlds, either consciously or unconsciously. The mystery dramas can give us an orientation into these experiences. Might the destructive forces, so prevalent in our times and at work in every sphere of human endeavor, be attributable to the crossing of this threshold of humanity, which if performed unconsciously yields “destructive urges” instead of beneficial impulses to fructify human life on earth?
