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

Excurses on the Gospel of Mark
GA 124

These lectures constitute an important chapter in Steiner's commentary on Christianity. They stress the relationship of the Gospel of Mark to the “language of the macrocosm” and cover such topics as the two main streams of post-Atlantean civilization, the tasks of our epoch, the laws of rhythm in the domain of soul and spirit, and much more.

Ten lectures from the series entitled: Excursus in the Area of the Gospel of St. Mark. Published in German as: Exkurse in das Gebiet des Markus-Evangelium. These lectures, plus three more, were published later as: Background to the Gospel of St. Mark.
