Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 6

There has arisen from its narrow limits
My self and finds itself
As revelation of all worlds
Within the sway of time and space;
The world, as archetype divine,
Displays to me at every turn
The truth of my own likeness.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 32

I feel my own force, bearing fruit
And gaining strength to give me to the world.
My inmost being I feel charged with power
To turn with clearer insight
Toward the weaving of life's destiny.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

At the Gates of Spiritual Science
GA 95

These early lectures are a good introduction to the ideas and content of anthroposophy. Steiner covers a wide range of topics including the being of man, the three worlds, life after death, karma, the evolutionary epochs, and the path of inner development. This book is an excellent complement to the basic books.

Translated by E.H. Goddard and Charles Davy from a text consisting of notes which had been made by a member of the audience and were not revised by the lecturer. The volume in the Complete Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works is entitled: Vor dem Tore Theosophie.
