Context:

Through their experiences, a person believes they understand how the world operates. However, we cannot see the big picture from our limited perspective. Only those who can rise above the bare facts—as if carried by wings—and patiently wait until their vision clears will realize that the world is a mirror. Through stillness, the mirror reflects what is true and what is a mirage. By analyzing situations or conditions, the mystery of life remains a mystery. The whole recognizes itself in its entirety as it provides a complete picture. This picture speaks to the person when they achieve clarity.


16th Year (Ages 181-192 Months) - Reflection (-Mirror) Phase Once the adolescent has recognized and accepted their role model(s) in the processes of maturation, they transition with their help from adolescence to adulthood. This too is a slow process. They develop and increasingly willingly take responsibility for their attitudes and actions in various areas of life, within the family and in individual educational settings (school, apprenticeship, university). Determination, sense of duty, but also tendencies towards apathy and refusal alternate. There are disappointments, but also the end of some self-deceptions and illusions about oneself and the world. As we call into the forest, so it echoes back. The birth of a healthy or hindered, sometimes unfortunately sick individual in human society is heralded. The individual reflects all the partnerships of the last sixteen developmental phases throughout their lifetime, since their conception and birth within the family and community circle, as well as within the relevant cultural context.


NAGGING (Conflict that shows in our relationships)If the human being repeatedly places his expectations on others, his strength may become paralysed. Because, with this attitude, he will soon no longer realise that he is living his life in a passive sense. The key to a happy life, however, is activity, particularly when this movement is linked to the person’s vision of his destination. The human being must keep his eye on a goal, and this is of great importance to him, because it makes him aware of his thought processes and holds him upright in his attitude towards life, as if he were a large tree. The tree grows out from its roots, and needs the soil for its stability. The tree’s crown shows its endeavour to live through the light. It needs water, rain, fog and dew, which shine in all colours when caught by the light. Throughout the changing seasons, the inner being of the tree is shown in its nature, which is continuously striving for perfection.


Like a tree, the human being stands within the space that has been allocated to him for his personal life. Here, he must grow in the ups and downs of life, so that he may one day integrate his experiences into a great insight. He can never expect another person to take over this possibility from him, so that he can prematurely leaving the forge of his insight to free himself from the many efforts that it entails. Only when all his experiences, both good and bad, have been made may he close the door of his workshop behind him and leave the room that has served him. He cannot do this beforehand.


Disappointments admonish the human being to continue concentrating on his personal goal. If this is not clearly outlined in the mind’s eye, like a picture, the human being must connect to his inner source so that he may remember what he really wishes to achieve in life. The resolution to build something or to make something grow that could remind him of the greatness of the universal nature of the human being within Creation is his powerful, but often hidden, desire, and has an insistent voice. Even if we close our ears to this voice again and again, we will, at some stage, hear it anyway. Perhaps we will hear its message at a time of great despondency, of a paralysis in our life forcing our being to be completely silent.


Disappointment may therefore help us to look after our own interests once again. Lack of orientation often goes unnoticed, but doubt may grant us the possibility of understanding that we are in the dark about the circumstances because we are lacking in consciousness.

Time and again, we have to free ourselves from habitual actions, because they cause our being to become paralysed down to its very roots. We may, for example, have the negative habit of travelling through life without being aware of the direction we are taking. It is as if one was a captain on the high seas, lost in the endless swell of the ocean without a compass and without orientation to the stars.

At some stage, every habit becomes a prison for us.


The key to our release, which we have perhaps hidden from ourselves, can always be found if we are no longer ready to maintain the obsolete, useless structures.When we open the door with the key, we will find we very often only need ourselves in order to survive. We do not need other people, but only our own willpower and our own being.

The human soul is, in fact, free from all earthly compulsions if only the old, uneasy memories and their dark images can be dismissed. It must also no longer pay attention to the echo from the past. In his imagination, the human being who has escaped from his passivity first creates an image that will remind him of his greatness. He dreams a dream of freedom.

One part of his being will suddenly no longer be bound, and he will feel free. The image will resonate in his inner being, and something within all his limitations will lose its hold. Like walls that begin to crumble through the ravages of time, they will slowly collapse. And when, instead of the old boundaries, a time of freedom dawns for our being, we will begin to reconcile ourselves with all compulsions. We will understand that the state of delusion regarding our limited, constrained world was simply a phase in life in which we had to learn what it meant to be obliged in a negative manner.

We will realise that a new foundation can be laid through the understanding of what it means to be bound by constraints and through our compassion for the sorrow in this time of pain. We will also realise that the strength to understand can free the human being from the deepest crises.

Someone who has learned to find understanding is, through his knowledge, firmly anchored in the roots of his earthly existence, but, paradoxically, is nevertheless truly free.
