Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 19

In secret to encompass now
With memory what I've newly got
Shall be my striving's further aim:
Thus, ever strengthening, selfhood's forces
Shall be awakened from within
And growing, give me to myself.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 45

My power of thought grows firm
United with the spirit's birth.
It lifts the senses' dull attractions
To bright-lit clarity.
When soul-abundance
Desires union with the world's becoming,
Must senses' revelation
Receive the light of thinking.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

The Spiritual Guidance of Mankind
GA 15

This book is a First Edition English translation of the German original, Die Geistige Führung des Menschen und der Menschheit, Geistes wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse ueber die Menschheits-Entwickelung (Vol. 15 in the Bibliographic Survey, 1961).

Also known as Spiritual Guidance of Man or Spiritual Guidance of Man and Humanity, it consists of three sections. Each section was originally a lecture (6, 7, and 8 June 1911), but was subsequently reworked by Steiner and cast into the form of an essay. These lectures, and those in The Mission of the Folk-Souls, are the only lectures reworked by Steiner for the public.

Some of the topics treated in this book are: the nature of the brain, the development of speech, angelic beings, ancient language, Zarathustra, Buddha, and Christ. It is presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
