Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 26

O Nature, your maternal life
I bear within the essence of my will.
And my will's fiery energy
Shall steel my spirit striving,
That sense of self springs forth from it
To hold me in myself.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 52

When from the depths of soul
The spirit turns to the life of worlds
And beauty wells from wide expanses,
Then out of heaven's distances
Streams life-strength into human bodies,
Uniting by its mighty energy
The spirit's being with our human life.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Theosophy of the Rosicrucian
GA 99

This volume provides an overview of Steiner's views on the nature and constitution of the human being, life after death and before birth, the laws of karma, the epochs of evolution, and the future of humanity. This was part of Steiner's early work of building up the content of anthroposophy and is an excellent complement to his basic books.

Translated by M. Cotterell and D. S. Osmond from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer. The volume in the Complete Centenary Edition of the works of Rudolf Steiner in the original German in which the text of this lecture-course is contained, is entitled: Die Theosophie des Rosenkreuzers (No. 99 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961)
