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

Man's Being, His Destiny and World Evolution

Steiner describes here the journey of the soul through the planetary and stellar spheres during sleep and after death.

These six lectures, translated from the German by Erna McArthur, were given in Oslo in May of 1923. In the collected edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing these texts is entitled: The Human Being, His Destiny and World Evolution. They are published in German as: Menschenwesen, Menschenschicksal und Welt-Entwickelung (vol. 226 in the Bibliographic Survey).
