Calendar of the Soul

Week 27

When to my being's depths I penetrate,
There stirs expectant longing
That self-observing, I may find myself
As gift of summer sun, a seed
That warming lives in autumn mood
As germinating force of soul.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 1

When out of world-wide spaces
The sun speaks to the human mind,
And gladness from the depths of soul
Becomes, in seeing, one with light,
Then rising from the sheath of self,
Thoughts soar to distances of space
And dimly bind
The human being to the spirit's life.

—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.
