THE SIX SIDED FORCE

"You see, gentlemen, if you eat honey, you will take into yourselves a tremendously strengthening force. If you have become too weak to develop within yourself this six-sided force that must flow from your head to the rest of your body, if you don’t have any longer the power to give your blood a certain degree of solidity so that this six-sided force is continually present, then honey must step in to make up for the loss, or, in the case of children, milk will be necessary. Children don’t have this six-sided force as yet — they still must obtain it through that which a woman produces in herself in the form of milk.”- Rudolf Steiner, Bees, page 51, 52​

“There are things that cannot ever occur with any precision. They are too big and too magnificent to be contained in mere facts. They are merely trying to occur, they are checking whether the ground of reality can carry them. And they quickly withdraw, fearing to loose their integrity in the frailty of realization. ” 
― Bruno Schulz, Sanatorium Under the Sign of the Hourglass
