the space created in his breath field, which corrodes the threads of fate, which creates harmony in chaos and strengthens peace in the person. The breath of God is not just a radiation. It is also a substance flowing through the universe, which permeates everything; it is a radiation which will be able to change humankind entirely. The undeniable consequence thereof will also be that a person’s magnetic breathing will change. His respiration field becomes more quiet and his consciousness clerer. With all the work being undertaken in that consciousness, such a person frees himself more and more from his astral ballast. Thus there is an increasing space for the soul. The soul increases in brightness, and slowly but surely the atmosphere in the respiration field changes. Karl von Eckartshausen calls this the result of the confluence of observant life with practical life. The School teaches: unyielding belief, intense yearning and constantly pursued striving, or symbolically: ‘standing on the carpet’. These are the conditions which eventually change the magnetic breathing and open up the respiration field for forces from the pure astral atmosphere. Initially, we live in a closed atmosphere, in which a seemingly meaningless sequence of construction and demolition takes place, and where there seems to be no room for escape. By means of an observant attitude of life, through continuous openness to the more profound, renewal and exaltation, and from there to undertake what contributes to happiness and preservation of the world and humanity, an increasingly rarefied subtle atmosphere will - from the limitless atmosphere of the Great Breath - descend into our breath field. Then the situation will arise that J. van Rijckenborgh describes in the Nuctemeron: “The magic fire of the universe, wherein is all life, now no longer has to penetrate through the tangled threads of the web of destiny in the respiration field. The original fire can enter directly into the microcosmic system and it will be concentrated in the respiration field, from which the candidate will feed his being with this hermetic fire. “It is an extraordinarily gracious situation described here, which everyone will be able to recognize and look forward to. Thus man is given a glimpse into a high reality which guides him along the shortest possible path - the path of serving mankind. This path equips and protects him completely, because it is no longer his will that drives him, but the soul that lives with the Spirit. If the Soul is like this - not because we contemplate it, not because we want it, but because the time for our longed-for efforts has arrived - then the breath field becomes a hallowed field. Then it is inevitable that all our thoughts, feelings and actions will be dedicated to the spiritual happiness and preservation of the world and humanity.
