Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 25

I can belong now to myself
And shining spread my inner light
Into the dark of space and time.
Toward sleep is urging all creation,
But inmost soul must stay awake
And carry wakefully sun's glowing
Into the winter's icy flowing.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 51

Into our inner being
The riches of the senses pour.
The Cosmic Spirit finds itself
Reflected in the human eye,
Which ever must renew its strength
From out that spirit source.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Theosophy
GA 9

Rudolf Steiner's book, Theosophy, An Introduction to Supersensible Knowledge of the World and the Destination of Man (published in German as, Theosophie. Einfuerung in uebersinnliche Welterkenntnis und Menschenbestimmung), is a brief but comprehensive “study of man” as well as a consideration of man's connection with worlds with which he is connected in one way or another. It includes both obvious and subtle aspects of that complicated entity known as the human being. This book first appeared in 1904 and has gone through numerous editions in the original German and in English translation.

Theosophy (1965)

Theosophy begins by describing the threefold nature of the human being: the body, or sense-world; the soul, or inner world; and the spirit, or universal world of cosmic archetypes. A profound discussion of reincarnation and karma follows, concluding with a description of the soul's journey through regions of the supersensible world after death. The book closes with an outline of the path to higher knowledge.


Theosophy (1971)

This edition is a translation of the German text (28th edition of 1961) entitled, Theosophie. Einfuerung in uebersinnliche Welterkenntnis und Menschenbestimmung in the Complete Centenary Edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner (Vol. 9 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961), by M. Cotterell and A. P. Shepherd. It is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
