From “Buddha and Christ,” a lecture by Rudolf Steiner

Resonated with this.  It’s from Rudolf Steiner’s essay “Buddha and Christ,” collected in Transforming the Soul (Volume 1):

“Christianity presents us, in the Christ, with a mighty impulse to lead the world forward, and who has pointed us, in the most significant way, to build our centre in our innermost being, where we develop those forces that will enable us to make use of every incarnation on the earth so that we carry, through our own powers, the fruits of one life into later lives.The incarnations are not to cease in order to open the way to Nirvana, but all that we can acquire in these incarnations is to be made use of and developed in order to resurrect the spirit.”
