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

Lesson 37

Berlin, 3-18-'06

To meditate means to open one's soul to the master so that he can give you impulses at night. The astral body gets instructions unconsciously at first, but this will get more & more conscious. At first insights in day consciousness that one can't explain, later higher and day consciousnesses simultaneously.

There are no difficulties on the path except those the pupil creates for himself and which the divine part in him couldn't overcome.
