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.

The Gospel of St. John (Basle)
GA 100

Introduction

These notes, composed afterwords from memory by four persons who were present at the lectures, are intended primarily for those who took part in the Course in Basle. In the interest of Spiritual Science we do not wish these notes to be used for the spreading of the ideas contained in them, as they do not reproduce the contents of the lectures word for word but quite freely, and for this reason they may contain many faults. Besides, Dr. Steiner may publish these lectures on St. John's Gospel later. We wish to achieve nothing more through our work then to provide for a few friends who themselves participated in the Cycle, a remembrance of those beautiful November days in Basle.
