We learn to see right into human life. In presenting these examples to you, my sole purpose was to show how one learns through anthroposophy to contemplate the life of human beings. 34 HUMAN VALUES IN EDUCATION Let us now look at the matter as a whole. Can’t we deepen our feeling and understanding for everything human just by looking at an individual human life, as we have done here? At a certain moment in life, if we can say: This is how it was for Schiller and Goethe and for the other young man I told you about; doesn’t this stir something within our souls, teaching us to look at every child in a deeper way?

There is an unfinished drama by Schiller, only a sketch. * We see from the concept behind this sketch that, if Schiller had wanted to complete his drama, he could have done so only as one who had experienced initiation. It could not have been finished otherwise. To a certain degree, at least, he had the inner qualities needed for initiation, but because of other karmic conditions, these qualities could not get through; they were suppressed, or cramped. There was a cramping of his soul life, too, and this can be seen in his sketch of the Die Malteser.

In 1799, he moved to Weimar, where he and Goethe collaborated to make the Weimar Theater one of the finest in Germany. Schiller died of tuberculosis at the age of forty-six. Incarnation of the Human Being in a Physical Body 25 So, what is the karmic reason from a previous earthly life that causes one to suffer from painful cramps? When pains such as these take hold of one’s body, they point directly to karma. If we adopt a sense of earnest scientific responsibility and attempt to investigate these cramp phenomena from the standpoint of spiritual science, we always find a specific karmic cause behind them—the results of actions, thoughts, and feelings from an earlier earthly life.
