Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 5

Within the light that out of spirit depths
Weaves germinating power into space
And manifests the gods' creative work:
Within its shine, the soul's true being
Is widened into worldwide life
And resurrected
From narrow selfhood's inner power.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 31

The light from spirit depths
Strives to ray outwards, sun-imbued;
Transformed to forceful will of life
It shines into the senses' dullness
To bring to birth the powers
Whereby creative forces, soul-impelled,
Shall ripen into human deeds.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Rosicrucian Esotericism
GA 109

These lectures present an overview of the western Rosicrucian esoteric knowledge elaborating on the nature of the human being; the physical world as an expression of spiritual forces and Beings; the stages of earth evolution in Lemuria, Atlantis, and after Atlantis; and the human being's experience after death. This volume along with The Principle of Spiritual Economy completes the bulk of the German volume Bn/GA 109.

The ten lectures presented here were given in Budapest, June 3rd to 12th, 1909. They were translated from the original German by D. S. Osmond, from shorthand reports that were not revised by Dr. Steiner. In the Collected Edition of his works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled, Das Prinzip der spirituellen Oekonomie im Zusammenhang nit Wiederverkorperungs Fragen (Vol. 109 in the Bibliographic Survey, 1961).
