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 Story of My Life
GA 28

The unfinished autobiography of Rudolf Steiner, in which the context of his life with the emergence of anthroposophy is visible. Steiner describes himseld in his youth and as a student in Austria, the intensive study of the work and the way of looking Goethe, his publishing activity for Goethe's scientific work through which he is led to Weimar; immersion in the cultural time in Berlin during the turn of the century, and finally advocacy for the anthroposophical spiritual science. The work leads up to 1907, the 46th year in Steiner's life. His death (30 March 1925) prevented the conclusion of the presentations. With numerous illustrations and manuscript reproductions, as well as a detailed register of people and a chronicle of events.
