This is my third message and final message about Inner Advent and it is my strongest. I really want you to participate in my Inner Advent teleseminar series. It will make a difference in your life, both of your lives – the inner and the outer.
If you have decided you want to participate in Inner Advent, register now.
The Sunday afternoon (4PM Eastern, 1PM Pacific) sessions begin tomorrow and the Thursday evening (8PM Eastern, 5PM Pacific) begin in five days.
Remember you do not need to be on the calls or be on every call. You will receive recordings of all the sessions and all the written materials within 24 hours.

There are seven billion people on this planet who have lived another year. How many of them will do the inner work of recollecting, reviewing and releasing their inner past so their inner future can be met with real possibility and real responsibility? In our increasingly challenging world with the growing difficulties of our political, economic and environmental crises, self-knowledge is the first step to resolution. Self-knowledge leads to freedom and love – the freedom to make new choices and the love for others, the planet and the future.
Inner Advent is an embrace, a conscious embrace, of your unfolding life. It’s a responsibility to your self, maybe even a spiritual or moral duty to your self.
We are different from animals in that we have the moral ability to be self-conscious and self-creative. We are not just about drives for survival or desires for being happy, we are about freedom and growth.
Freedom comes from knowing yourself. Self-knowledge is a spiritual practice. Rudolf Steiner teachings guide me to a right relationship to my self. He writes in his book, How To Know Higher Worlds, “You can only sacrifice that which you have fully possessed.” Self-knowledge is self-possession. Possess your year so you can let it go.
Know how you survived this year. Know how you emotionally experienced the year. Know how you grew and evolved over the year.
Know your year to know your self!
Possess your year so you can let the stories go and find the meaning, the sacrifice of your 365 days, your 29000 breaths, your efforts and struggles, your dreams, your joys, your sorrows.
How do you begin to do this? How do you organize your recollection of the year? How do you analyze what happened? How do you intuit the meaning? What are the questions that will lead to the insights, the self-knowledge, to a new you, a wiser you, a freer you?
I want Inner Advent to be a relaxed and aware experience for you. I will guide the process, but you will do the work. No one can do it but you. This is the gift you give your Self.
