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

Here are two lectures given in London on the 17th and 18th of November 1922. They are from the lecture series entitled: Spiritual Relationships in the Human Organism and published in German as: Geistiger Zusammenhaenge in der Gestaltung des Menschlichen Organismus.

These two lectures were translated by D. S. Osmond from horthand reports unrevised by the Lecturer. The translation has been made from a much abbreviated German text. They are published in agreement with the Rudolf Steiner Publishing Co.
