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.

Michaelmas and the Soul-Forces of Man
GA 223

In these lectures Steiner shows us the need to “expand the horizon of life into the breadth of the world” so that we can overcome the contemporary “hermit existence.” This volume along with Cycle of the Year completes the entire German volume GA 223.

The four lectures in this volume were given in Vienna, September 27 to October 1, 1923. In the Collected Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled, Der Jahreskreislauf als Atmungsvorgang der Erde und die vief grossen Festeszeiten (Vol. 223 in the Bibliographic Survey). Translated by Samuel and Loni Lockwood
