At the Threshold
The soul has to overcome strong resistances in the rossing from
sense-bound existence to a state of freedom from sensuality. These resistances
occur because the soul has to separate from its former style of inner life,
from thinking, feeling and willing as these appear in the sense-world.
The soul must become conscious of the forces which stand behind thinking, feeling and willing in life on earth. It must learn to channel these forces into another direction, in the direction of the spiritual world.
It will only succeed when its interest in the spiritual world is at least as great as that for the earthly world. The strongest force of courage is required to achieve this. A true death will be experienced.
The three beasts appear on the threshold: earthbound thinking, earthdirected willing, personal egoistical feeling.
