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.

Knowledge and Initiation —
Cognition of the Christ
GA 211

Steiner describes exercises and aspects of the path to attain exact knowledge of the spiritual worlds. He shows how natural egotism accompanying spiritual development is overcome by the attitude “Not I, but Christ in me.”

These lectures were given to an audience familiar with Anthroposophy. The reader, who has no prior acquaintance with Anthroposophy, can gain the necessary background by reading Rudolf Steiner's books: “Knowledge of Higher Worlds and its Attainment,” and “Theosophy”.

The original German texts of these lectures are published under the title: Das Sonnenmysterium und das Mysterium von Tod und Auferstehung (Vol. 211 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961.).
