Quoted from the lecture:

"Siegfried is the third opera in this series by Richard Wagner. And in this third part we penetrate even deeper into profound Initiatic mysteries whose true meaning and true content had never before been publicly revealed. In this story of Siegfried we see symbolized aspects of the Cosmic Drama that any initiate from any time or place has to live within their own consciousness. This Cosmic Drama is universal. It has always existed, and it will always exist. Very few have seen the Cosmic Drama for what it is, because very few have lived it."

"Wherever we direct our attention, we spend creative energy. We can save creative energy if we divide attention, if we do not become identified with things, people, and ideas. When we become identified with things, people, and ideas, we then forget our Self and lose creative energy in the most pitiful way. It is essential to know that we need to save creative energy in order to awaken the consciousness, and that the creative energy is the living potential, it is the vehicle of the consciousness, it is the instrument in order to awaken the consciousness."
