Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 35

Can I know life's reality
So that it's found again
Within my soul's creative urge?
I feel that I am granted power
To make my self, as humble part,
At home within the cosmic self.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 9

When I forget the narrow will of self,
The cosmic warmth that heralds summer's glory
Fills all my soul and spirit;
To lose myself in light
Is the command of spirit vision
And intuition tells me strongly:
O lose yourself to find yourself.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

The Festivals and their Meaning II:
Easter

This volume is a tremendous help for participating in the deep spiritual realities behind the Easter festival. Throughout his life Steiner talked about a modern spiritually conscious approach to the festivals of the year. Here is a compilation of what he had to say at various times about Easter.

Eight lectures given between the years 1908 and 1922. With a Foreword by A. P. Shepherd, this translation, from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer, was edited and revised by Dorothy S. Osmond, Alan P. Shepherd and Charles Davy.
