about

the difficulty of grasping thinking in its essence by observing it consists in this: when the soul wants to bring it into the focus of attention, this essence has all too easily slipped away from the observing soul. all that is left for the soul then is the dead abstraction, the corpse of living thinking. if we look only at this abstraction, we can easily feel drawn to the mysticism of feeling or the metaphysics of will, which seem so "full of life." we find it strange if anyone seeks to grasp the essence of reality in "mere thoughts." but whoever truly manages to EXPERIENCE LIFE WITHIN THINKING sees that dwelling in mere feelings or contemplating the element of will cannot even be compared with (let alone ranked above) the inner richness, the inner fullness of experience, that makes its reflection in normal consciousness seem dead and abstract. no other activity OF THE HUMAN SOUL is as easily misunderstood as thinking. feeling and willing warm the human soul even when we look back and recollect their original state, while thinking all too easily leaves us cold. it seems to dry out the life of the soul. yet this is only the sharply contoured shadow of the reality of thinking---a reality interwoven with light, dipping down warmly into the phenomena of the world. this dipping down occurs with a power that flows forth in the activity of thinking itself--- the power of love in spiritual form. one should not object that to speak of love in active thinking is to displace a feeling, love, into thinking. this objection is actually a confirmation of what is being said here. for whoever turns toward essential thinking finds within it both feeling and will, and both of these in the depths of their reality. whoever turns aside from thinking and willing loses the true reality of feeling and willing. if we EXPERIENCE thinking INTUITIVELY, we also do justice to THE EXPERIENCE of FEELING and WILL. but the mysticism of feeling and the metaphysics of will cannot do justice to the penetration of existence by intuitive thinking.

- Rudolf Steiner , from Intuitive Thinking as A Spiritual Path
