The truth is what leads to the highest and noblest impulses for human evolution; the truth should be dearer to us than we are to ourselves. If our relationship to truth is guided by these words and we still make a mistake in this life, the truth will be strong enough to draw us to itself in the next incarnation.
Honest mistakes we make in this incarnation will be compensated and redeemed in the next.
It is better to make an honest mistake than to adhere to dogmas dishonestly.
After all, our path will be lit by the promise that truth will ultimately prevail, not by our own will, but by its own inherent divine power.
From “Spiritual Guidance of the Individual and Humanity” by Rudolf Steiner
