The Third Mystery Drama brings the First and Second to a conclusion in certain respects, and the original viewers saw them as a trilogy. The first steps into an actual seeing of one's Karma were presented in the Second Drama, and now the integration of what was seen has to be brought about. For indeed, seeing into the spiritual world is not like seeing a landscape where it is clearly before one's eyes; rather it is more like seeing into a microscope or space telescope, totally new things appear which one does not know how to categorize or in the case of the spiritual world, to find a relation to. Not only outer visible aspects have to be integrated though, also new feelings, but especially new moral attitudes have to be integrated. Through conscientious hard work, Johannes has created a new book about spiritual knowledge, but just because of this, his own spiritual knowledge has grown and he can now encounter another side of himself not recognized previously. This knowledge now warns him what he is about to do is incorrect, so he turns away from the success he might have had giving out the book. Just this then lets him see what he really lacks in terms of spiritual insight and where this does actually lie for him. So he seeks Theodora's light. That seeking in turn, with Maria's help, brings him to the discovery of his own light. Strader experiences the powerful illuminating nature of Theodora's light directly, and it changes his whole life. But then through the loss of that light, after something new has been established within him, it causes him to seek help from Johannes, following Benedictus's guidance. This in turn brings him into a direct experience of the strongest side of his own inner nature and what he has actually developed in his previous lives. Such an insight gives him his own inner self-confidence in what he has to contribute to the others, to mankind. The Karmic knot that binds these individuals together can be brought to a higher stage of development, a stage where these individuals are prepared to help each other help themselves, and where a social work may be undertaken which will also be in harmony with the spiritual forces in the world.
