These two little books, written in 1912 and 1913, represent Rudolf Steiner's most personal statement
about his own spiritual path. Reading them, we not only understand what he meant by "spiritual science"
but we are also helped to begin to practice it. Unlike natural science, spiritual science as Steiner conceived
it is not based upon sensory facts and reason, but a profound and differentiated exploration of cognitive
states opf consciousness.
Here Rudolf Steiner speaks directly of his experiences, his cognitive explorations. Each of the meditations
amd aphorisms that make up this book arises from his spiritual research and demonstrates how such spiritual
research is to be undertaken. The content is his own, but the method of consciousness - the path of attention to
our own experience - is universal.
