Calendar of the Soul

Week 27

When to my being's depths I penetrate,
There stirs expectant longing
That self-observing, I may find myself
As gift of summer sun, a seed
That warming lives in autumn mood
As germinating force of soul.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 1

When out of world-wide spaces
The sun speaks to the human mind,
And gladness from the depths of soul
Becomes, in seeing, one with light,
Then rising from the sheath of self,
Thoughts soar to distances of space
And dimly bind
The human being to the spirit's life.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Knowledge as a Source of Healing
GA 198

Two lectures, numbers one and two of seventeen, from the lecture series entitled, Healing of the Social Organism, published in German as, Heilfaktoren fuer den Sozialen Organismus. They were given by Rudolf Steiner at Berlin, in the Spring of 1920. The first of these lectures has been subtitled, Therapeutic Activity in Science, Art, and Social Development.

The lectures focus on: the concept of disease in old and new times; the blue-blindness of the Greeks; diseased forces of our intellectual life; the life-time gap between natural necessity and morality and its overcoming. Both lectures have been translated by Violet E. Watkin.
