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.

Anthroposophical Ethics
GA 155

Based on a study of the life of Francis of Assisi, Steiner shows how the development of morality is based on the belief in the Divine at the bottom of every human soul, on the boundless love that springs from this belief, and on the hope for each human soul that it can find its way back to the Divine.

This volume is a translation from the German of Christus und die Menschliche Seele. Ueber den Sinn des Lebens. Theosophische Moral. Anthroposophie und Christentum, (Vol. 155 in the Bibliographical Survey. 1961.), three lectures given by Rudolph Steiner at Norrköping, Sweden, May 28-29-30, 1912, translated and edited by H. Collison.
