Calendar of the Soul

ST. JOHN'S TIDE

Northern Hemisphere
Week 12

The radiant beauty of the world
Compels my inmost soul to free
God-given powers of my nature
That they may soar into the cosmos,
To take wing from myself
And trustingly to seek myself
In cosmic light and cosmic warmth.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 38

The spirit child within my soul
I feel freed of enchantment.
In heart-high gladness has
The holy cosmic Word engendered
The heavenly fruit of hope,
Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
Out of my being's godly roots.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Popular Occultism
GA 94

These lectures are only short notes of the cycle 12 lectures given at Leipzig as early as 1906. But they are of historical interest for those who are now themselves giving lectures to a new generation filled by the yearning to obtain spiritual knowledge. Consequently these lectures are a valuable guide from the methodical-didactic aspect. Unfortunately, the twelfth lecture, entitled, “Christian Initiation, Earth's Interior,” was omitted in this set of lectures.
