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

The Waking of the Human Soul and the Forming of Destiny
GA 224

Steiner here deals with the interwovenness of human beings and destiny with cosmic and spiritual evolution. By meditating upon the human functions of walking, talking, sleeping, and thinking, we are brought into contact with the traces of the past deeds of spiritual Beings and the presence of Christ among us now and in the future.
