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.

Initiation, Eternity and the Passing Moment
GA 138

These lectures delineate the difference between ordinary and initiate consciousness. Steiner distinguishes between the great initiates who guided humanity by imparting truths gained outside the body, and the Christ, who gave the earth its meaning by working from within the physical body.

The seven lectures presented here were given at Munich, August 25–31, 1912. They were revised for this edition by Gilbert Church, Ph.D, and are from the lecture series entitled, About the Initiation, About Eternity and the Moment, About Spiritual Light and Life's Darkness. In the Collected Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled, Von der Initiation von Ewigheit und Augenblick. Von Geisteslicht und Lebensdunkel
