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

Occult Reading and Occult Hearing

In these heartfelt lectures Steiner took his listeners through the inner experiences and moods of soul that are the vowels and consonants of the spiritual world.

These are the first four of eleven lectures given by Rudolf Steiner at Dornach in the Fall and Winter of 1914. They are from the lecture series entitled, Occult Reading and Occult Hearing, and were published in German as, Okkultes Lesen und Okkultes Hoeren.
